I have been scouring the news to try and find something to blog about but I swear that most of what I have been seeing and hearing on normal news channels is mundane, ordinary and downright boring for the most part.
I am glad to see that the Space X crew had a successful splash down after their mission in space — the last such spectacular re-entry and splash down occurred more than 40 years ago. Maybe space is about to become exciting again. I do have one concern, however: Some scientists are now predicting that some microbal life forms may survive beneath the surface of Mars. I just hope that one of those Rovers the scientists are sending up to Mars doesn’t collect any of those microbes as samples to be returned to earth because the result might be more horrific than the coronavirus. In fact, it is not beyond credibility that if there ever was a Martian civilization, it might have been some of those surviving microbes that wiped them out. Science can be scary sometimes.
We learned today that the coronavirus is now extremely “Wide-Spread” in The United States — now having jumped from the major urban areas to the suburbs and the rural areas of the country. So far, The United States also lags far behind in contact tracing, a vaccine, other treatments for the disease … all because of no leadership in Washington, D.C., or because of lax leadership ….. and we are now the country with the most cases of this shit on the face of the planet and we have a president who continues to deny the real dangers of the pandemic … it doesn’t look good for the future, folks. I have never seen an individual so concerned with winning an election that the lives of his citizens are either secondary in importance or mean nothing at all. It is egregious. Yet, his cadre of mindless idiot followers continue to hang onto his nut sack as if he were a God of some kind, always fanatically supporting his every move, defending every idiotic thing he says or does … it really lowers my appreciation for a large portion of what was supposed to have been the human race …. but I am beginning to think of some of the half-educated who support this administration as something a little lower than human … intellectually anyway …. I mean they do still have the ability to breed …. and that could be a danger to future generations in and of itself.
The Bay Area of San Francisco is showing what can happen when people get what I call “Coronavirus Fatigue” and start ignoring all the safety precautions such as masks and social distancing. Read all about it — (HERE). It’s bad enough that total idiots refuse to take safety precautions all over the country. The time is fast approaching when even the worse deny-ers of the danger of this plague are going to learn some hard lessons and they will be the first to start squealing like pigs …. but by that time it will be too late for many of them and I have to admit that I am not going to have one iota of sympathy for any of their ignorant asses. They are dangers to the public health and if they contract the virus because of their arrogance and ignorance it is no sweat off my nose.
The World Health Organization is now warning that the pandemic is going to be “Lengthy” because the epidemiology of it is not yet well-enough understood and the people being affected most seem to be the most careless in doing the things that have been proven to slow the spread either out of ignorance, superstition or mistrust of the authorities … so the plague will continue to ravage us all for a long time to come it seems. The people who are supposed to know about these things are predicting that at least 600-Thousand People will have to die globally because of the pandemic before it is ever anywhere near subsiding. I have personally predicted a global death toll of Two-Million because I believe that to be a more sensible figure given the intransigence of those who are supposed to be finding ways to protect us.
Even The United Kingdom is reported to be looking at locking down London if cases become any worse than they are already and you can read about that — (HERE).
No, it doesn’t look like anything is getting any better anytime soon. I have to look at all this and laugh and ask myself, “Is this what Trump meant when he promised he was going to make America Great again?”
Welcome to the “Greater” America, friends!
