Covid-19 Pandemic:  Coming To A Town Near You (March 2, 2020)

. . .

J          “You are the only person in America who predicted the precise day that the market would start tanking.”

K          “Don’t let it get around, but I did so by predicting that the market would start tanking every day for the last one thousand and one days.”

J          “Seems that I should have abided the Valentine’s Day e-mail to ‘SELL, SELL, SELL’ immediately.”

. . .

J          “When the 3M N95 valved masks were no longer available, the government passed the word to tell the public they are not effective.” 

K          “You know that the government and the non-governmental agencies are lying at just about every opportunity, but the vexing problem is that the exact opposite of what the government is saying is not always the precise truth.”

. . .

K          “For decades, we discussed the three EEEs.  Sometimes it was energy, environment, economy, and sometimes it was environment, economy, energy and sometimes it was economy, energy, environment.”

J          “Epidemiology.”

K          “The four EEEEs.”

J          “In the new world, it may be epidemiology and energy and then epidemiology and environment and then epidemiology and economy.”

K          “And then epidemiology and epidemiology and epidemiology and epidemiology.”

. . .

K          “And America’s most profitable second-rate newspaper out of New York continues its unrelenting campaign to attack Sanders and to advance Biden while  presenting its inadequate and distorted coverage of the Virus ‘below the fold’ for weeks.”

J          “It is ‘The Times’ we live in today.  It is a time of greed not of greatness.”

K          “We live in an ‘Information Desert’ in an ocean of lies.  The lies of the WHO, CDC and NIH are parroted by the propagandists at the MSM, ABC, CNN, NBC, CBS, Faux FOX, MSNBC/DNC, NPR, PBS and others.”

. . .

K          “Think man had a hand in creating it?”

J          “Hands down.”

Covid-19 Pandemic f.d.b.a. Coronavirus:  Coming to a town near you

You can’t call it “Pandemic” unless it’s from the Pandemic region of France, otherwise it’s just Sparkling Flu.

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.  Specialization is for insects.”  Robert A. Heinlein

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.  We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.  The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”  H.P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Cthulhu”
