A Little Cough

I couldn’t believe my eyes. They showed it on TV. I backed it up to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. Then, I backed it up one more time.

Sure enough, I saw a man making a speech. He paused and lowered his mask and coughed into his hand. Then he replaced the mask and rubbed his nose a couple of times.

Who could this virus spreader be? He is none other than Joe Bidden, the man who says to do as the scientists tell us to do.

The above may or may not be well known. It is possible you might be able to find the video should you Google it. I don’t know. I don’t care.

What I would like to do is imagine what his wife told him after she found out about it. Very likely she said something like, “Honestly! Joseph Bidden, I can’t I take you anywhere without you embarrassing me, can I?”

I don’t know if that was what she said but it sort of sounds logical.

One more little note:

Obama got into politics and got rich.

Joe Bidden got into politics and got rich.

President Trump got rich and then got into politics.

Why do they keep trying to say President Trump became president to get rich? I don’t understand that.

Oh, by the way. Presidents Reagan and both of the Bushes had quite a fortune before becoming president. I’m sure both Bushes took pay cuts when they went into The White House.

Survivors

I wrote a book called “The Survivors” about five-thousand people who deal with global warming. I actually got some nice reviews on it, though not exactly glowing. The fact is that most of those who read it enjoyed it in spite of all the little grammatical errors in it.

Well I’m not writing this to sell my books even though I would not complain if I did sell a few. My point is this. I have been reminded by this pandemic of the doomsday preppers. For those who don’t know, these are people who expect some kind of doomsday event threatening all of mankind.

Some of the preppers are convinced that some kind of epidemic will come along and kill just about everyone. It sort of sounds far-fetched… until recently. China just waged the first case of modern day biological warfare, not on just the US, but on the whole world outside China. While they may or may not have invented the virus they released on us, they did intentionally release it on the world.

Fortunately, the virus is not that deadly. It only kills old folks, LIKE ME and people with diabetes, LIKE ME and people who have lung problems, LIKE ME.

I figure what we need to do to protect ourselves from the Chinese is to start preparing. I figure we all need to have spacesuits handy, like those that the astronauts wore on the first flights into space. In addition, we will all need to carry around an oxygen tank and some kinds of re-breathing device. It might be nice to have a little cart so we could pull our life support behind us wherever we go.

Our homes would have to be sealed and a have a good air system as well. That way we would not need to wear the spacesuits while watching TV. Removing them anywhere else would be risky. If you were in a restaurant or other place where even one person was carrying the virus, it could kill everyone in the place. Worse yet, we might become infected and carry it home to our families.

Let’s get realistic. Most of us would die. Most of us cannot afford spacesuits. The things are expensive. Only the rich would survive. Then, they too would die. There would not be anyone around to provide their services for them.

Really, it’s ridiculous. The real way to fix this is to make China pay such a price that they would never ever think about ever doing such a thing again. As it is, the Chinese, and Russians for that matter, just learned an important lesson. They know they can use germ warfare on us and we won’t do a thing to them. We will just sit quietly in our homes and complain to our leaders.

Personally, I think it is time to send a message to the Chinese, one that they will understand loud and clear… before there is a run on spacesuits.

The Numbers Don’t Lie

They keep saying that hydroxycloroquine is not effective.  Consider this: Uganda has a population of 42.72 million and has only two deaths from coronavirus.  They have had a total of 1147 cases and 117 active cases.

Where in is their success?  They commonly take the previously mentioned medicine… for malaria.

The point is this.  One day, the research will be done.  One day they will be able to say positively one way or the other.  In the meantime, thousands die.  What if they find out that the medicine would have prevented 90% or even 80% of the deaths?  Who will answer for that tragedy?  Who will pay the price for the decision?  Who will comfort the friends and relatives of those we could have saved?
