If a Priest prefers to preach to pews packed with people while
a powerful pathogen precipitates and perpetuates a pandemic,
to prevent a premature powwow with Pearly Gatekeeper Peter,
the parishioners should promptly Put the Pastor out to Pasture!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve had far less scary nightmares (Vid of the Day)

Science denier and budgetary hatchet-man Donald J. Trump’s combo of knowledge deficits and funding deficits have both debilitated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and World Health Organization (WHO)… “sickened” the very agencies that live to prevent sickness and death.

And, depending on who you ask, the fake prez’s all too real ignorance has resulted in COVID19 either rapidly becoming… or already being a pandemic.

Those Trumpian errors do have a hefty price tag attached… our present-day, planet-wide. literal. life or death struggle.

I know I’ve awoken from far less scary nightmares.

How about you?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Could Avarice Conquer A Virus? (Vid of the Day)

The mindless microbe… is always eager and ever-ready to go on a worldwide rampage. All on its very own, it’s already a nasty li’l bastard that demonstrates a proclivity for mutating… on short notice… into an even nastier, bigger bastard.

While each microorganism’s survival doesn’t, necessarily, depend on a macroscopic, moronic ally, it’d NEVER be “too proud” to turn him down.

The particular “it”… in this instance… is named COVID19… and its ally… in this instance… is the macroscopic, moronic Donald J. Trump. Trump’s ‘tude is what makes him, in particular, this germ’s BFF. To flesh that out…

• Undeniably… Dense Donny, the self-proclaimed “stable genius”, spits utter contempt at academicians and scientists. He has already, amply demonstrated his proclivity for de-funding and depopulating the very agencies he’ll be needing the most… especially now… namely… the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and World Health Organization (WHO).

• Stunningly… for the past (nearly) two years…  Donald has been oddly unfazed regarding the White House’s National Security Council being minus an expert to comprehend public health threats and coordinate their containment.

• Realistically… not to make light of this, but, to better showcase Trump’s “Shallow Hal” nature… in all likelihood, the only public health issue that germophobic, rutting, bare-backing, extramarital flinging cad ever worries about is the “Carnal Flu”.

• Ironically… if it’s not already too late, perhaps, an odd offshoot from that Trumpian ‘tude will come to humankind’s rescue? We’re talking about the fake prez’s gargantuan GREED! I am dead serious!

• Cynically… were the coronavirus not [1] impairing Donny’s trade deal with China, [2] wrecking havoc on the U.S. and foreign financial markets / global economy and [3] laying waste to the fake prez’s own, personal, stock portfolio… he would not shive-a-git about COVID19’s grave threat to humanity.

• Opportunistically… any pandemic could easily become white nationalist Trump’s “perfect”, exploitable, excuse to [1] turn away / exile non-infected asylum seekers and [2] round up and cage news anchors, reporters, critics, political enemies (Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congresspersons Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jerry Nadler and Adam Shiff) and even his presumed Election Day rival, Bernie Sanders. And, then, long after COVID19 is no longer a threat, Herr Kommandant Trump would not be in any particular hurry to liberate his political prisoners and shut down his Stalags.
