Is there a Doctor in the house?

 

For anyone who actually gives a damn about public health / saving humanity, it’s impossible to not notice what common sense suggests could be a matter of life and death. Here’s what’s happening.

Now that in-person learning is underway within my community’s public schools, multiple dozens of student athletes have been jogging on the city sidewalks; unmasked and in a too close formation, which could not, possibly, even be approaching bare minimum, social distancing recommendations.

Granted, the medical experts have been claiming that COVID-19, typically, harms old people more than young AND, supposedly, is not particularly communicable outdoors.

Yet, Corona-V is so novel, one has to wonder…

• Do we really know every last damned one of its deadly capabilities?

• What about its adeptness at adapting / evolving into something even worse?

• Who’s to say that outdoor running’s increased, intensified respiration is not a risk factor?

• What if Trump’s bereft of science delusions still dictate Centers for Disease Control health safety protocols?

• Would it not be better to err on the side of caution?

• Since outdoor jogging affords plenty of room, why not triple the recommended social distancing norms?

• Is there a Doctor in the schoolhouse to look out for the well-being of the student body?

• Is there a Doctor in the vast WordPress house who, if warranted, would allay such concerns?

That’s a Godly Man?

How the Hell does anyone ever wind up multiple decades into biological adulthood and still throw temper tantrums? Hmm… perhaps we should call them Trumper Tantrums? Yep, that’d give credit where credit is due.

So, WTF was “Godly Man’s” goal? Did he actually expect these underpaid, essential Walmart workers… these courageous sentinels patrolling the COVID-19 frontlines… to apologize profusely? Beg him not to leave?

Obviously, he neither knows nor cares about the fact that with 95% mask compliance… throughout the remainder of 2020, alone… we could save 70,000 lives!

He needs to realize that his beef is not with retail workers… it’s with Donald J. Trump.

If “Godly Man” could harness just a minuscule fraction of his rage and channel it more productively / appropriately he’d vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Their winning the White House is America’s best bet for, eventually, making mask wearing a thing of the past.

Tick… Tick… Tick…

 

Each time I (conscientiously) mask-up to (reluctantly) set foot into Donny’s Diseased America, I log “The Event” on my wall calendar along with the locations of where I’ve been. It’s all in the hope that, if/when Donny’s Disease strikes me down, at least such data could, somehow, prove useful to contact tracers.

Alas, at that point, the 14 day, COVID-19 incubation countdown clock gets reset… Tick… Tick… Tick…

So far… for me… that now stands at 3 days down and 11 to go.

The rub, here, is that even if no symptoms appear, I still don’t know, with any certainty, whether or not I pose a health threat to humanity. And I cannot justify getting tested, each time, when our essential workers, not I, should go to the head of America’s long line.

Of course, owing to my old age and lifelong, respiratory issues, being asymptomatic would not be the likely outcome. Nope, I would not expect Corona-V to treat me kindly.

Truth told, I’ll be surprised to still be alive and well come Election Day 11/03/2020… let alone New Year’s Day 2021.

Nonetheless…

• I remain fully committed to tirelessly do my part to prevent human suffering and death… i.e. to shelter at home and social distance / mask-up in public. And I will continue to do so for as long as it takes.

• I grow weary of  the man-child, so-called leader who, day in / day out, is doing his damnedest to needlessly prolong his DIY pandemic… to sadistically inflict human misery by ginning up his childish devotees’ ferocious defiance of painless pandemic etiquette… as well as their selfish resistance to basic human decency.

Alas, Donny literally doth have the power of life and death and gets off, regularly, on lording that fact over us.

The good news, here, is that yet another countdown clock is going Tick… Tick… Tick…

And that readout now stands at 57 days…

57 days till Election Day… the day when our ballots must rein in the reign of terror of one Donald J. Trump… in all likelihood… the biggest health threat to humanity to ever walk on 2 feet (with a 4 knuckle assist).

Fly on the Wall Fake News?

 

Were we able to hot mic a manure eating housefly and release it within the Oval Office, what might we learn?

Two things are certain to make such an endeavor successful. With all the shit going on in that pigpen, there’d be little chance of our “bug” ever going hungry or even wanting to leave!

The benefits?

We could, in real time, finally eavesdrop on all the evil crap that’s actually being discussed, perhaps, even inclusive of this “perfect” phone call to the Food and Drug Administration?

DJT: Listen up you white lab coated losers! Science is shit! There’s nothing, REPEAT, NOTHING more important than ME getting reelected. To make ME look good, you WILL ramrod whatever Chinavirus vaccine looks the best thru the approval process, skip every last damned testing phase and start shooting that shit directly into the arms and asses of Americans on MY TIMETABLE. That means your DO or DIE deadline for making ME The Savior, is two weeks before Election Day, November 3rd! The only reassurances I want from you are that the voters don’t start dropping dead until November 4th. GOT IT?

FDA: Yesssir!

The End

Tangled Webs

For forty years, my father taught high school level Chemistry, Physics and Biology within Minnesota’s and Michigan’s public school systems. It was approximately one year prior to his 1982 retirement when…

I found him seated at our dining room table on a Thursday evening… preparing a weekly Chemistry exam to be administered the following day. At first glance, all appeared normal, that is, until I noticed he had set out multiple stencils before him (btw, this was in the pre-printer / photocopier era where the mimeograph machine still ruled supreme).

When I asked, “Why the four pager exam?” dad explained that several conscientious students (enrolled in his a.m. classes), had been complaining, confidentially, that cheaters were feeding his test questions and answers to the p.m. enrollees. Even his Grade Book readily confirmed how a disproportionate number of his afternoon students were acing his tests.

Ergo, to fight back, he planned on administering four different exams.

ASIDE: As frequent readers of my Dumb Donald posts may’ve already surmised, I’ve been a longtime Match Game fan. In all likelihood, that’s what motivated my following suggestion to my father…

“Why not delete the numerical values from your test questions and leave blanks? All you’d need to do is provide the easily changeable, missing data on the blackboard.”

Dad and I both chuckled, conspiratorially, as he re-boxed three of those stencils. He’d now be able to not only ferret out dishonesty’s circulation pattern but also identify the specific cheaters.

Even so, we both expressed our dismay. After all, cheaters were expending far more time and energy than it’d take to simply study the damned subject matter.

Beyond that, consider the risks to public safety / health if such “students” ever cheated their way through med school.

Summed up more generally…

“O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!” – – – Sir Walter Scott

Such wisdom certainly is applicable to political science matters as well.

Take a long, unforgiving look at the tangled web which the Science-Denier-In-Chief, one Donald J. Trump, has been weaving, hourly, not only in his futile attempts to cheat his way out of his DIY pandemic but also in his (hopefully failing) attempts to dishonestly spin himself into a second term.

No Mask? No Soup For You!

Larry Thomas reprises his Seinfeld, “Soup Nazi” role to call attention to a life saving truth… the need for everyone to don masks when in public. Until safe efficacious vaccines and/or therapeutics become readily available, our masking up and social distancing (2m / 6ft) is our best 1 – 2 punch defense that WILL PREVENT needless human suffering and death.

Look, Donald J. Trump’s DIY pandemic has, so far, resulted in 186,000 stateside, COVID-19 deaths. If we don’t mask up, NOW, some of our finest scientific minds project that, by year’s end, that total could rise as high as 300,000!!!

And so I now ask, what kind of person would not want do the easiest, most painless thing in the world… mask up to save 114,000 of our compatriot’s lives!

Granted, my appeal is America specific… more so than I’d have normally opted for. But, I only did so because too damned many Americans don’t really give a damn about the well-being of others.

Corona-V Out-Matches Donald-T

 

If your homeland’s leader is enlightened, obviously, you do not live in America. Most assuredly, you’re not forced to put up with, first hand, the unlikable likes of Dumb Donald-T.

• Dumb Donald is soooooo dumb…
• How dumb is he?
• He failed to act promptly, proactively and
persistently to contain COVID-19’s spread.

Worse yet, that science denier cannot even begin to fathom how the pandemic, of his own making, has not only laid waste to public health and the economy but has also taken its psychological / emotional toll.

Think about it. In the absence of vaccines and/or therapeutics, my homeland’s very survival depends upon everyone masking up and socially distancing. Yet…

• Cheerleader-In-Chief Dumb Donald is sooooo dumb…
• How dumb is he?
• He is constantly shaking his political pom-poms to
lead the charge in America’s Ant-Masker Movement.

I’m sure that most Americans, while doing our grocery shopping, have crossed paths with maskless, mindless Trumpers. And our worrying about this, both during and afterwards, is what can easily bum us out…

• Dumb Donald depresses us soooooo much…
• How much does he depress us?
• Each time we venture forth into the fake prez’s
diseased America, we run the real risk of our life
expectancy dropping down to weeks; maybe days.

Let’s sum up this pandemic problem in terms that even Dumb Donald could grasp?

Consumers will not be in a shop-till-we-drop mood, when we’re expecting to drop dead from the Trumpian Flu. Until Donald J. Trump can deprogram his base and… at the very least… convince them to mask-up… he can expect COVID-19 to tank out his job approval ratings and Stock Exchange numbers. And, if Fair Elections still even exist anymore in America… he’ll get trounced at the polls, too.

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.”

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

 

 

 

 

Dragged Out / Dragged In / What a Drag!

Even now, eight long months into the pandemic, some of us still don’t get it… CUT! CUT!! CUT!!!

Let’s cut through the crap.

I was raised in an era where, early on in life, nearly everyone learned to be “we” NOT “me” oriented.

Anyone who values such for-the-greater-good sentiments, will find our video’s showcased conduct both cringe-worthy and inexcusable. How else could we react to the sight of the masquerading as a grownup, cussing shopper getting dragged out into the parking lot by his own son. And even more disgusting is the audible flatulence at 0:36.

Alas… what else can we expect, when all the man-child knows is how to ape and follow his (mis)leader… namely, the cringe-worthy and inexcusable man-child, who holes up in his oval shaped digs. The fake prez flunking out in Science 101, Civility 101 and Civics 101, is why, eight long months into the pandemic, approximately 4 out of 10 Americans… my guesstimate*… still cannot wrap their warped minds around this truth…

Until safe, reliable vaccines and / or therapeutics are discovered, humankind’s best and only defenses against the pitiless, deadly coronavirus require our masking up and socially distancing in public and isolating at home.

What could be easier than that?

To slightly shift gears now…

Following a bit of introspection, it dawned on me that I could also appear in my own pandemic related video… although the “cam” would be focused upon my self-preservation instincts… not immature selfishness.

Were it humanly possible to capture / post online my state-of-mind… we’d be witness to my overwrought condition whenever I must mask up to set foot into the Donald diseased America. We’d see how my own home, the symbol of relative safety, acts as the unseen force, which relentlessly drags me back inward… inside where I’d be tirelessly toiling away… permanently hammering shut all of my dwelling’s exit doors, and, just to be damned sure, boarding up all my windows, too.

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