Italian Couple Fined For Public Kiss


              You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss. Or is it?

              A couple in the northern Italian city of Milan has been fined 400 euros by police after they—gasp!-- kissed each other in public, violating COVID-19 regulations.

              The “incident” occurred on October 9th when the couple, a 40-year-old Italian man and his Polish fiancĂ©e, left their house to stroll to a local restaurant. While walking hand in hand, they kissed each other…and were almost immediately surrounded by police. The officers interrogated the couple noting that they had different addresses on their identification documents, according to the newspaper Il Giornale. Local regulations stipulate that people in public must remain a minimum of several feet away from each other if they are not wearing a mask, unless they are living together, so the polizia di stato promptly issued the fine, despite the man producing photographic evidence that the couple had been engaged for more than two years. The man is appealing the fine…thank the Lord.

              The fundamental things [still] apply as time goes by, do they not? No matter what else transpires, no matter how bad things get, the world will always welcome lovers…right? Apparently not.

  If we have even lost the ability to keep politics and “science” out of our romance and our kisses, we have lost our humanity, our soul.   

              COVID-19 won’t be the end of us, but our elites/experts/leaders/rulers reactions to it might make us wish that it was. It is entirely possible, masked up and locked down, that we may be spared death…only to fervently wish we hadn’t been.

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

On that you can rely
That no one can deny
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by
