People Are Tired

People are tired of hearing about SHITHOLE, who has killed more than 215,000 Americans because he did away with protections for the country, called the coronavirus a “hoax”, refused to issue a countrywide lockdown, did not promote the use of facemasks, denied scientists, bashed Fauci and other health officials (including ones in the Shit House) and doesn’t give a fuck about anyone but himself.  That’s why we’re voting his ass out November 3.

SHITHOLE had the audacity to call Fauci and other scientists “idiots”. But SHITHOLE is the real idiot.  The country may be ready to move on from the coronavirus, but the coronavirus is not moving on from America. In fact, it is moving on America like a bitch in heat. However, Americans ARE ready to move on from SHITHOLE, who has been an even bigger health disaster for this country than the coronavirus.  That’s why we’re voting his ass out November 3.

Because SHITHOLE has been in charge, we are in danger of having a quarter of a million people die.  Because SHITHOLE has refused to acknowledge the coronavirus, even though he himself allegedly contracted it, because he has failed to acknowledge the use of facemasks and social distancing, that is the main reason why the country is in the state it is in today. That’s why we’re voting his ass out November 3.

People may be tired of Covid.  But Covid is not going away.  SHITHOLE, however, WILL be going away. In fact, SHITHOLE will be gone BEFORE Covid. Because Covid may never fully go away. Unlike SHITHOLE. Who will eventually die. Until he does, we’re voting his ass out November 3.

We know the real reason why SHITHOLE is bent out of shape over Fauci.  It’s not because of what Fauci has said about the coronavirus.  It’s because Fauci was awarded with the first ever National Academy of Medicine’s Presidential Citation for Exemplary Leadership.  Because SHITHOLE, who cannot even win an Emmy, will never win one of those awards.  Nor will he ever win a Nobel Peace Prize. SHITHOLE is just a jealous prick whose ass we are voting out November 3.

The only thing SHITHOLE will probably ever win is a prison sentence.

Going In the Wrong Direction

Where once Massachusetts seemed to be doing so well in the coronavirus war, we have somehow gotten out of control. Considering recent incidents I have witnessed, I can see why.

There’s nothing like standing in line at a pharmacy waiting to get a flu shot and having the elderly man in front of you coughing his head off. Then you later see the same man wearing a facemask–down over his chin.

In the same pharmacy I witnessed a man approach the pharmacy desk–with no facemask on. As the 98-year-old woman going to get her flu shot passed by.

My sister, who works in a grocery store, tells me of this crazy guy who comes in several times a week wearing a winter hat, carrying a Macy’s bag and wearing no mask. When he is told he needs to wear a mask, he laughs and says “well, you’re wearing a mask so we’re all set”. My sister said if she could do it and not get fired, she’d rip off her mask, cough in his face and tell him now he’s all set too. He now has coronavirus. The only thing this nut job buys is six pounds of ripe bananas. Either he has a pet monkey or he really is a looney tune.

The problem with these scenarios, and part of the reason why Massachusetts is through the roof once again with cases, after doing so well, is that the management in these places isn’t doing anything about the problem people that are visiting. And once these problem people visit and get away with it, they think they can every time.

The other day one of them ranted and raved at the manager at Customer Service in the supermarket because he was spoken to about not having a mask on. He whipped out his alleged “I have a disability and don’t need a mask” card and the customer service rep let it go. What she really should have done was call security and have his mask less ass hauled out of the store and banned from the store for life.

My sister, who is a cashier at this store, told me this scenario:

Customer: (sigh) I’m so sick of having to wear a mask

Sis: Considering I have a friend who is in the hospital on a ventilator right now due to Covid, I think wearing a mask is a good idea.

Not sure, but I think that bitch will think twice in the future before complaining about wearing a mask.

With the rising cases, do I think it’s wise of Governor Baker to warrant an increase in restaurant seating, open venues and arcades, roller rinks, museums, etc.? Even if they’re just in the “good” communities? Do I think it’s wise of my school district to be planning on having athletics and working on a hybrid plan to get the high schoolers back in school before Thanksgiving? Not exactly. Not with between 500–700-plus cases popping up every day. What happens when we start seeing the numbers we saw back in March? One-thousand plus cases. Every day. Then what?

Considering most have the freedom to go just about anywhere they want if they wear a mask, they should keep in mind those who cannot go anywhere because they cannot wear a mask. Like my autistic sister Peggy and most of the people who attend her day program, which they haven’t been to in over six months. Most of these people, my sister included, haven’t stepped foot in a store, a salon, a bar, a museum, a zoo, amusement park, beach or restaurant since March. I’m lucky I can even visit my sister at all and the most we can do is go for a ride. I can’t take her anywhere except to my house for a visit and that’s not too fun for her. So it really angers me when people who have all the liberties in the world with the simple use of a goddamn facemask are bitching and complaining. And the ones who do have the ability to wear a fucking mask won’t because they’re too goddamn ignorant.

You know the old saying “one bad apple spoils the whole bunch”? Well, those few out there are the bad apples. And they’re the ones spoiling the whole bunch.

Where Will We Be….

Ever wonder where America will be a year from now in regards to the coronavirus pandemic?  If we’re not careful, which a lot of Americans aren’t, we won’t be any further ahead of it than we are now.  We may be even further behind.

We can hold out hope for a vaccine.  And there are very promising patches regarding a possible vaccine here and there.  As I posted recently, depending on what happens and who you listen to, we could see a vaccine as early as September or as late as some time in 2021.  But who can predict the future?

In the meantime we have to deal with assholes who love to spew misinformation to the public because they know a lot of the public are vulnerable.  They are desperate.  They are done hoping.  So some alleged doctors made a video and posted it all over social media telling the vulnerable, desperate, done hoping, even gullible American citizens that the “virus has a cure, it’s called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax” and that “You don’t need masks, there is a cure.”

OMG.  Stop the presses!  Tell Moderna and all the other pharmaceutical companies working around the clock on a vaccine to stop what they’re doing.  We already have a cure!  We don’t need a vaccine!  Because if you take hydroxychloroquine, especially for something other than malaria, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, there’s a very good chance you could die.  No vaccine needed.

Hydroxychloroquine is also known by the brand name Plaquenil.  We know it is given to people who will be visiting countries known for malaria and is also used in the treatment of lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.  Now, you know every drug has some kind of possible consequence, even death, right?  Even “vaccines”. According to “Medical News Today” it probably wouldn’t be wise to give this “cure” or “vaccine” of hydroxycholoquine to children. If you have psoriasis taking this “cure drug” may make it worse.  You could end up with permanent eye damage.  And then there’s the heart issues.  Which, unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have probably heard about.  And I’m not even going to get into how it could affect you if you have another condition such as diabetes or what the side effects are.  No, people, hydroxycholorquine is not a safe drug.  And it is far from a “cure” for coronavirus.  No matter what any “doctor” may tell you. And yes, you do need a mask when out in public.

You know the old saying “one bad apple spoils the whole bunch”?  That’s what is happening in America.  Most of us are taking precautions.  We aren’t listening to the idiots who spew this shit.  We sure as hell aren’t listening to SHITHOLE.  And we’re wearing face masks.  But there are so many who are ruining the chances of overcoming this pandemic with their ignorance, conspiracies and stupidity.  Unless we all get on the same page, America will keep falling further behind and will never catch up.  Even if and when a real vaccine is created.  Because so many are already refusing to take the vaccine.

The Vaccine War

With so many pharmaceutical companies working around the clock to create a vaccine for COVID-19, you would think a vaccine is right around the corner.  Right?

That may be the case.  Some reports are saying we could have a vaccine as early as September.  Some say the fall.  Some say December.  Some say early 2021.  Those could all be true.  They could all be false.

Speaking from the perspective of a potential vaccine taker, let me tell you what I, as well as I’m certain many, want with a vaccine:

  1.  We don’t want it politicized.  In other words, we don’t want SHITHOLE pressuring the FDA or any pharmaceutical companies to hurry up and make this damn thing, then push through trials, just to say we have a vaccine.  And for the hopes that it will make SHITHOLE look good.  Even if they had an approved vaccine available tomorrow, it wouldn’t make SHITHOLE look good.  His chance to look “good” in America’s eyes has long passed.
  2. We want it to be safe.  Which means there are going to have to be many trials done with it.  It must be approved by the FDA.
  3. We want to know what kinds of side effects it may have, if any.  Can people who take certain medications be given this vaccine?
  4. We want transparency.  We want to know all the details of this vaccine before we decide to take it.
  5. We want to know, will need to know, if this is going to be a one time vaccine or will it be a yearly thing, like a flu shot.
  6. We want to know if you can be given the vaccine if you currently have the virus.  Can you be given the vaccine even if you never had the virus?  Can you be given the vaccine if you never completely recovered from the virus, as many people have not.
  7. Can infants be given the vaccine?  How about if you’re pregnant?  Have cancer?
  8. Who should be given the vaccine first?  Will there be enough for everyone around the world?
  9. Will there be enough to go around?  I remember only a few short years ago there was a flu vaccine shortage.
  10. Can we be guaranteed there will be no cost to us?  I’ve heard conflicting stories on this.  I pay nothing for a flu shot every year.  But this is very different.

If a vaccine is created but Americans cannot be given transparency and information about it, necessary to understand any risks, effects, etc., then why bother creating a vaccine?  We want a vaccine to try to help get our lives back to a somewhat pre-COVID-19 status.  We don’t want a vaccine that will kill us in the process.

When Johnny Returns to School

With the return to school looming in the background for millions of American kids, questions still remain for many as to how they will be returning to school.  Will it be in an actual school building?  Will it be at home?  Will it be a combination of both?

If SHITHOLE had his way (which he won’t), all kids will go back to school within an actual building.  Because he believes if the kids are in school, then the parents can go back to work.  He couldn’t be more wrong.  Because it’s difficult for a person to go back to work when there isn’t a job to go back to.

Take for instance the furloughed nurse who lives next door to me.  She works in a medical office and was furloughed in April when the doctor’s office decided since they weren’t seeing as many patients in person (if any at all), they didn’t need to keep five nurses on staff.  So they kept two and furloughed the other three.  She still has not been called back to work and now she’s gotten word that the doctor’s office is closing and probably moving to another location.  She’s not even sure where.  They have kind of kept her out of the loop.  At this point she is kind of left hanging, not knowing if she should still wait to see if they call her back or try to look for another gig as a nurse at another doctor’s office. If she can find another position.  So when her kids go back to school at the end of August, chances are she won’t be working but instead looking for work.

How does the person who once ran a restaurant but was forced to close it because he couldn’t make it on doing take-out alone go back to work?  The small business loan he applied for didn’t come through for him.  So when his kids go back to school in two weeks, guess what he won’t be doing?  Working.  I take that back.  He’ll probably be working on helping his kids do their school work, since they’ll be doing it virtually at least through the fall.

So although SHITHOLE thinks he can snap his fat orange fingers and make all the kiddies go back to school and all the parents go back to work, he can’t.  He has no idea how parenting and working works.
