Around the World in 80 Days

 

My posthumously offered thanks to author Jules Verne for enhancing this post with his apt book title.

Ever since Roylab Stats’ Coronavirus Pandemic Real Time Counter, first topped off my site’s homepage on 05/30/2020 06:07 a.m. (80 days ago), it’s been providing my visitors the grim statistics (reported illnesses and deaths), broken down by the individual 218 territories and the worldwide total.

Also worthy of note is how, be it willfully or unwittingly, the resultant unforgivable under-testing for COVID-19 means that incidents of illness and death are still being grossly under-reported.

Check out this telling, statistical analysis…

As of that bygone posting time, COVID-19’s reported cases, worldwide, stood at 5,640,739.
As of today’s blog posting time, COVID-19’s reported cases, USA Only, stands at 5,612,230. *

The juxtaposition of these two, nearly identical stats, serves to emphasize how…

• My homeland’s negligent, IGNOR-ANUS leader’s DIY pandemic has now proliferated into what’s tantamount to a global pandemic, right within the United States, ALONE! Disproportionately, while America’s population represents 4.25% of our global tally, our death toll now stands at 25% of the COVID-19 reported deaths, worldwide.

• A mindless microbe has methodically, effortlessly, outwitted nitwit D.J.T. as well as too damned many of his godforsaken, IGNOR-ANUS peers. One would think that these cocky dolts could’ve each mustered… bare minimum… two rubbed together brain cells, so they could’ve heard and heeded the advice provided by our world’s finest scientific minds. Intelligent leaders who did so, did successfully corral coronavirus!

It’d not be Monday Morning Quarterbacking to state categorically…

• At the dawn of the looming pandemic, had genuine and fake leaders, alike, been able to unify all nations / our entire human family… had they successfully ordered all 7.8 Billion of us into quarantine for 1 MERE MONTH, in all likelihood… SANS ANY VACCINE… the needless physical and fiscal suffering and deaths could’ve been avoided. Indeed, we could’ve reclaimed our lives and livelihoods long before the March Equinox.

BTW, for up to the minute Roylab Stats’ pandemic updates, visit my homepage, where I’ve enhanced the numbers with a rundown of life saving pandemic protocols (inclusive of DIY Mask Making)… as well as my own heartfelt sentiments…

“As complete and accurate as this Real Time Counter is, what it fails to report are the oceans of tears… of the patients, the medical professionals who are trying to save them, and last but not least, all who are mourning those, who did not make it back home… well… at least not back to their homes found on earth.”

 

Stay Safe at Home! Stay Publicly Masked! Stay Healthy!

 

* As of 08/18/2020 21:30, COVID-19’s reported cases, USA Only, stands at 5,655,974.

 

 

 

 

Fortune Cookie Blog (Body Count)

 

RE the sorry state of the heads of many of our heads of state,
it’s a textbook case of NoBody Home! That is the main reason
why you’re presently a social isolating HomeBody & I am, too;
the reason for the pandemic’s astoundingly high Body Count!

 

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Better Than Hulu, Netflix, Disney, HBO etc.?

 

I am not a tin foil hat wearing whack-a-doodle, flipped his noodle guy who buys easily into conspiracy theories… but…

That doesn’t mean that I’d ever shy away from ‘em. Hell, I oft cook ‘em up and play ‘em out in the theater of my (more or less) rational mind. Being a frequent flyer, who soars off to Fantasyland, if nothing else, is the safest way to “travel” while idled in pandemic necessitated quarantine. The fringe benefits are cool, too. After all, this costs nothing and can be more entertaining than Hulu, Netflix, Disney, HBO etc.

So, let’s take a closer look into who / what has been so conducive to my recent conjecture… namely… one Donald J. Trump and his stunningly stupid stance re All Things Corona.

My premise: This bug doth seem tailor made to jibe with his ideological rampage and bid for reelection.

Disclaimer: This is not to suggest that either the Science-Denier-In-Chief or any of his admin’s like-minded cronies and toadies could ever muster sufficient IQ points to bio-engineer a pathogen, all on their own. These simpletons are simply not the white lab coat – Bunsen burner – microscope – petri dish type.

Nor would they even be capable of coordinating with bioethics violating, mad scientists for an evil assist. The clashing egos on both sides, alone, would all but guarantee that plot’s implosion.

Even so, Donny can still depend / draw on his opportunistic nature to compensate for his mental deficits. And he doth recognize how coronavirus has been disproportionately debilitating and decimating the non-Caucasian and retiree demographics, which, by sheer coincidence, are the very folks he detests… i.e., seeing how most of them are loyal Democrats who’d never, ever vote for him.

In Other Words: Any virus that’s not a friend of racial minorities and the elderly is a friend of the fake prez.

That Donald J. Trump’s pandemic ass dragging could actually be his ongoing, politically motivated conspiracy… one which seems tailor made to snag him a second term… at the very least, is worthy of consideration.

Of course, no conspiracy theory is necessary to point out how ignorance tends to conspire against all who wallow in it.

If that debunks all of the other conspiracies, that might even deny Donny a second term.

And we could all (literally) live with that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duty

 

For the past month, I’ve been blogging, almost exclusively, about the pandemic. Upon reviewing these posts, recently, I realized that some of them could be misinterpreted by readers… in particular where / when I’ve been sorting out my all too human, mixed feelings about isolation.

Granted, I complain. However, that’s not rooted in Trumpian childishness, foolishness, selfishness… or any other negative “ness-word” that makes up the English tongue… words both readily recalled and on the tip of the tongue.

So, to clarify my stance…

• I fully accept the stay-at-home recommendations set forth by my Governor, the honorable Gretchen Whitmer! That is both my Moral and Civic Duty. In the absence of readily available testing for Coronavirus, I must view myself as much a potential threat to humanity as each and every other person must view me. I truly care about the well-being of the people, who I now stay at home to avoid… who, when in public, I must maintain (at least) two meters’ worth of masked separation from.

However, my acceptance of the new reality can only go so far.

• I do not grant a free pass to nobody’s president, one Donald J. Trump! It is my Patriot Duty to dish him out an ALL-HE-CAN-EAT, heaping helping of Truth To Power! It has been Deplorable Donny’s CYA stance, his butt dragging and sitting on his wallet obdurateness *, which have inexcusably impeded widespread, Coronavirus testing… i.e., the time-honored scientific methodology that’s so vital to the containment and conquering of that debilitating and deadly pathogen.

Stay Safe! Stay Home! Stay Healthy!

 

 

* See what I mean about those negative “ness-words”? It was while proof-reading that I spotted how “obdurateness” just happened to slip in while I was discussing disgusting Donny.
