Still ain’t buyin’ it.
I keep looking around, watching the world charts of what this bug is doing (if accurate, could go either way on that note) and watching what Government is doing here locally nationally etc. Still ain’t buying it. Something isn’t ringing true. Numbers aren’t adding up, reactions are grossly out of caliber for the end result to be justified.
Its not the disease thats scaring me, its the inintended consequences of government spasms in the name of “public safety”. Financially the economies are tanking. At current trend, and with the Fed poised to start buying up everything to keep the velocity of money up, we are looking at the next Weimar republic scene, only this time it will cover multiple continents. When the economies explode in hyperinflation, JIT delivery systems go tits up (if not sooner if the gov locks down every major city and restricts travel liberties) JIT goes tits up, and people are next in line, after they shred the remnants of whats on the shelves of every mom n pop store and walmart.
And all for what, some smoke n mirrors show of force? Like another blogger has stated. Let them have this much leeway for this disease, what’s to stop them for the next one, or the one after that, or putting the entire country into lockdown because of “whatever” being construed BY THEM as a public safety concern.
Coldfury excerpts CS Lewis in this post and I must agree with the premise. None of us, NONE escape death. We are born dying, surrounded by so many different death options from day one. This ‘new bug’ is just another in a long list of many, that MAY take you over to the next plane of existence. Suck it up because the odds are actually in your favor that it WON’T!!!! And lets face it; while dying scares purt much everybody, we all have to face it eventually. Yeah it sucks, isn’t pretty, usually painful, but it just IS. If its you, it truly sucks, if its someone close to you, it still sucks and should be counted as a trial run for when its your turn. And if its not someone you know, or are close to, breath a sigh of relief and get back to keeping on: you dodged the bullet this time, but there are more where that one came from and eventually,,,
But, for whatever reason, which completely escapes me unless my suspicions are correct, our
fearless Leaders that wanna Be, think they are protecting us.
The only ‘upside’ that I see right now? People are all becoming preppers. Recent trip to grocery showed a serious dent in stock of flour, beans, dry noodles, and other long term storage stuff that can make pretty much anything. The entire aisle of vegetable oils was bare, gone. Like I said to boss, if you have vegetable oil, flour and some salt and pepper, you can cook rat and make it taste like chicken. (Side note, there was toilet paper still on the shelf, just not much, LOL)
I’ve said it to several people in meatspace, in texts, even across VoIP; what I am seeing is, IMO, a cover for collapsing the economy so that defaults on obligations can take place without instigating retribution from creditors. It doesnt matter “who” created and released the bug, all the big players are responding in kind with similar actions and all of them are using it to scare the shit out of their own people.
And if I’m wrong? So what. If I’m right, so what. I’m just one little fish in a great big sea of fish. The bubbles I’m making, float away just like everybody elses.
It all comes down to being sick n tired of all the hype n negativity being amplified over the good in life. If you only live with venom and sewage, you see nothing else. Get out and try to see something good for once. Do it before they make it so you need permission or a badge, or whatever option the currently evolving police state we reside in comes up with. Cowering away in fear is pointless and pathetic.
