Get used to the fact that there is never going to be any flattening of the coronavirus pandemic until the evil bug has completely satiated its appetite on every suceptible human being because the god damned fools who have been given instructions on how to flatten the curve absolutely refuse to follow the rules. They either think the covid disaster is “Planned” by government to control their lives and is, therefore, some kind of illusion being spun and sustained by Media …. or they are too damned entrapped by their feelings of arrogance and superiorty that comes from their ideas of what it is to be an American. So, they ignore the rules and help to spread the pandemic and they are never going to change because they are dumbassed ignorant knuckle draggers whose only talent is to breed more of their own kind.
These kinds of fools are not going to be “Mandated” into doing anything they do not want to do no matter what it costs them, their loved ones or other people because they have no regard for anybody or anything but their own selfish instant gratification.
As this pandemic goes on … and go on it will … people in general are going to become to desensitized to its devastation that the very thought of a neighborhood refrigerated truck morgue will become mundane .. blase … ordinary … to be expected … part of daily life for those lucky enough to remain alive … and their worries about their loved ones catching and dying from the plague will be replaced by a sense of “Oh well, whatever is going to happen will happen and, sooner or later, this will affect inter family relationships resulting in a new form of nuclear family unit composed of individuals worried about nothing and nobody but their own individual selves.
tendencies toward favoring mutual aid will be replaced by total self interest and the needs of the “Other Guy” will become totally insignificant.
Shelter will become a pandemic of want and despair in and of itself as the jobless lose their homes and go onto the streets because of the failure of government programs to help them keep roofs over their heads and a new class of homeless will be created … a class of homeless that includes former members of the upper classes who have lost it all and don’t have a pot to piss in while their still-stable peers will cannibalize all possible benefits of their former peers … and the shit will hit the social fan!
Private homes will become a thing of the past as the government starts taking them over and forcing their owners to shelter many more people in their spaces …. The government will knock on the doors of the private homeowner one sweet day and inform them that they are required to take in 7 or 8 more people and shelter them … just like was done in Cuba back in the early Castro days. (No, they will not be compensated either! Don’t even think it!)
The day will come when the government gets the idea that “Covid Camps” are necessary to separate the sick and dying from the healthy and these will become the new leper colonies of the 21st Century. The air will be heavy with the acrid smoke of crematoria trying to keep pace with all the death and leaders like Trump will still sit on their asses doing nothing at all because they don’t know how to cope … and all this will become part of the new normal and whoever is left alive will have to get used to it and suck it up until it comes time for them to join the ranks of the damned.
The day will come, barring a miracle, when the very idea of humane responses to this plague will become impossible and non-existant.
That which was is no more, my friends and will never be again. Get over it!
