Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Ruminations, perturbations, and observations

Scanning through the webs today, just to make sure I have a finger on the pulse of the rest of the world, I ran across some things, things that make you go ‘hmmm?’ and other things that stopped me cold in my thoughts.   Enough things that I thought I should get them out to share with others.

This whole Corona/beer/batshit virus thing is off the chain.  Never have I seen our government going so far for something so little and the actions I have been witnessing vicariously through blogs and the occasional glimpse on the MSM’s seemingly doesn’t match the reality around me. In the words of Bugs Bunny, Something stinks!  Assessing the situation, knowing that this is still early in the usual growth curve of viral anything, maybe I am jumping the shark here, and maybe those running things know things we don’t.   Time will tell.   But, as was mentioned in comments over at Irish’s place, has anyone reading these blogs met or know personally, any one person that has contracted this virus?  We hear reports of “some un-named person” coming down with it locally, but,,,   Hey, news is what news is, right?  (and like I said to my sister, the Media is geared for fear mongering, not news)  We also know that  Major American News Networks are not going to tell a truth if it smears our government.

And that brings be around to the ruminations of Vaping again.   Y’all know that I have been fighting the smoking thing for years now.  Since last year, I was doing very well by switching to a vapor pen type nicotine source.  I know that its not ‘quitting’ if you are just transferring the addiction to another source, but by God, the difference in my breathing was fast, and I had dropped the coffin nails completely.  THEN,,,  Suddenly there was outcry against Vaping and how it was killing people (less than a thousand last I heard) and even schills in DC were talking about how Vaping was a pandemic that needed stopped.  (notice a parallel conversation here???)    Finding the pods for my Vapor-pen has become an increasingly difficult task, and I have started picking up the cancer sticks again.   And I find my breath is getting shortened, yet again.   (Yes, I know.  I really just need to quit, but honestly, the body count if I tried to go cold turkey would be staggering!)   and then I read this article, about Disease investigators trying to track down Patient Zero of the CovID19 virus   It’s only mentioned in passing about the potential connection of Beer bug and Vaping  and possible misdiagnosis, but that along with some of the other stuff, and all of which checks as fact,,,,

I don’t believe in Coincidences,,,    The Government shuts down a BioResearch lab ran by the Army, Some people get sick and its blamed on the newest Fad in smoking, and then some athletes from that same area attend an event in Wuhan China.   Four weeks later, people are dropping like flies, and the world shits itself and begins shutting down living.    There are other articles with similar content, but that one covers most of it. Please, read the whole thing.

Hollyweird can’t make shit up like this.   Every aspect can be tied together and all of it stinks of a government trying to cover its ass by shifting the blame and slinging poo at the watching crowd.   Keep watching, but I bet that this thing fizzles out by August and it will be on to the next disaster of epic proportions.

Then you have the fight between Commie Bernie and Dementia Biden,,,

God, if that’s the best the opposition can come up with,,,    I can’t even,,,  No words,,,,   It’s just disgusting.

 

Tying all of that above together gave me another thought to ponder.  People are shitting themselves over a what may just be a hyped up bug, clearing store shelves like Armageddon is right around the corner, and we have a presidential election coming up that has the absolute dregs of  high society for Candidates running.   Have the American people really devolved into such SHEEP, that someone blowing their nose causes them to lose their collective fucking mind??????

Now for the thing that stopped me cold.

Prayers for Remus.   Stay dark as long as you need Brother, we can wait.   Take care of yourself, don’t follow to closely behind her.

 

 

I’ll leave it at that for now.   Question everything,

  1. I’d say the whole of Asia basically shutting down is a big deal.
    All we need do is look at how other countries responded to this crisis, to get an idea of what worked and what didn’t. Ignoring the warnings to isolate has basically caused Italy to have a severe outbreak.
    China immediately did wholesale quarantine and now is getting control over the spread.
    South Korea and Japan are listening to the advice and are testing on demand. They too are getting control of it.
    Typically , we Americans are slow to react…turning it into a political issue and displaying just how ignorant we are. By ignoring the threat we are very likely killing not only our economy but also killing off our elderly.
    As is usual, America is being ugly first and eventually will do the right thing. Bad thing is, this time reacting slow , might well be our demise.

    • Might well be our demise IMO is the only outcome at current course andd speed.
      Not that it would be a bad thing overall in the long run, but its gonna suck seriously black pondwater in the meantime.
      I keep saying it: the bug doesnt scare me anymore than any other bug out there. Whats scaring me is the second and third order effects of what the world is doing in reaction to fear.
