No Need For Alarm

Dr. Fauci.  In America you either love him or you hate him.  I guess it depends on what you want to believe, or who you want to believe.

SHITHOLE not only hates him; he’s jealous of him.  Why else would SHITHOLE invite himself to a Yankees game to throw out the first pitch?  In a city that despises him.  Because he just happened to do that after Dr. Fauci threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game the other day.  Then SHITHOLE retracted his own invite!  Because he knows nobody would give a shit!  Such a dumb fuck!

Fauci has something that SHITHOLE will never have.  Intelligence in medicine.  I feel for this guy and the fact that he has to deal with SHITHOLE and his nonsense day in and day out.  And he is belittled by the jealous SHITHOLE because SHITHOLE knows, no matter what Fauci says, he will never be able to say anything better.  Or more correct.  And he knows it.  Because Fauci knows his shit.  And SHITHOLE is shit.

SHITHOLE has called Fauci an “alarmist”.  Why?  Because he’s warning Americans about what’s coming down the pike with regards to the coronavirus?  Because SHITHOLE doesn’t like what Fauci is saying?  Because it’s not what SHITHOLE wants to hear.  Whenever it’s something SHITHOLE doesn’t want to hear it’s bad.  It’s “alarming”.

You know what is really alarming?  The fact that America has a SHITHOLE for a “president” who hasn’t and won’t do a goddamn good thing to help this country in getting through this or anything else that’s going on in the country.  He loves to wreak havoc.  He thrives on it.  It’s the narcissist way.

You know what SHITHOLE is really jealous of?  THIS:

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.

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.

What The U.S. Needs

At this point in time, what is it that the United States needs?  It needs a lot.  A decent leader would be a start.  We’re working on getting one on November 3.  In the meantime, we’ll deal with the SHITHOLE that we have.

The CDC has recently stated that “if all of us would put on a face covering now for the next four weeks, six weeks, we could drive this epidemic to the ground.”  I’m not sure it would drive the epidemic to the ground, but it would help immensely.  If the United States was smart (but we’re not because we have the dumbest leader in the world), we would have completely locked down back in March, or earlier, as other countries did.  But as long as there are assholes in the country who refuse to wear a mask or cooperate with a lockdown, we’re always going to have a problem with the virus.  And then you have SHITHOLE who disagrees with the CDC and says “No, I want people to have a certain freedom, and I don’t believe in that, no.”  Yes, he wants people to have the freedom to get sick and possibly die.  Having SHITHOLE at the helm has not helped the United States one bit.  In fact, having him “in charge” has hindered it greatly.

There are idiots in this country who believe that the coronavirus was created by Democrats to stop SHITHOLE.  If that were the case, we would’ve created it four years ago to stop him from becoming “president”.  Besides, Democrats and the Republicans who also can’t stand SHITHOLE have much better things to do than to sit around all day creating a virus.

In retrospect, the coronavirus was SHITHOLE’S time to shine.  It really was.  It was his chance to show the United States how he could be great leader.  You know, finally step up to the plate and succeed in getting people what they need to fight the virus.  If he had stepped up initially and kept stepping up, he may actually be leading in the polls and may have actually had a chance to be re-elected.  But he has failed.  Tremendously.  He couldn’t even provide enough PPE to his medical providers. Five months into this and he’s still having trouble getting tests and tracing done in a timely fashion.  He cannot even show empathy for the dead.  He doesn’t feel any of this is his responsibility but yes, it is.  Because he’s allegedly “president” of the United States.

SHITHOLE doesn’t want the entire country to wear face masks because he’s not the one who came up with that idea.  It came from the CDC.  Which consists of many people much smarter than SHITHOLE.  The only ideas SHITHOLE can come up with are for people to take a malaria drug that will probably kill them, inject disinfectant into their veins and shove UV lights up their asses.

Wouldn’t it be so much easier to just wear a damn face mask?

To School or Not to School

It seems that everyone in government wants to stick their nose into deciding whether our children should be physically attending school come the new school year.  In other words, having school buildings open for children, teachers, office staff, custodians, food service, etc. to risk their lives in the face of coronavirus, all in the name of education.

The delusional SHITHOLE who calls himself “president” and the good-for-nothing “education secretary” Cruella DeVos can say what they want about their desire to have America’s kids to go back to school.  But in conclusion, there’s not a goddamn thing they can do about how it happens.  So if school district X wants to send their students back to school in a hybrid form (say two days at physical school, three days schooling at home), SHITHOLE and Cruella have no say.  SHITHOLE can threaten to take away funding.  Most of the funding the schools get comes from the state, possibly even the town (I know of such a district that relies on most of the funding for the school from the town itself).  So SHITHOLE and Cruella can fuck right off.

What these two idiots, and the rest of their idiotic “administration” need to consider is what happens if these kids go back to school and then suddenly many people get sick.  Including children.  Just because “stats” claim children don’t get sick, doesn’t mean that’s the case.  Many children have gotten sick from COVID-19 and some have died.  Children aside, if all the teachers that taught the children got sick, then who would teach the children?  Of course.  The parents.  At home.

On June 25, 2020 the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released a 20-page booklet that they call “DESE Initial Fall 2020 Reopening Guidance”. They state that their goal for the fall is to “safely bring back as many students as possible to in-person school settings, to maximize learning and address our students’ holistic needs. With the information provided in this memo, districts and schools should begin planning for a fall return that includes multiple possibilities, with a focus first and foremost on getting our students back into school buildings”.  The document also states that “districts and schools must plan not only for in-person learning, but also hybrid learning models (in which students learn in-person for some of the time and remotely for some of the time) and also full remote learning.  Remote learning may be a necessary option in the fall for some students who are unable to return to school due to underlying medical conditions and potentially for all students if COVID-19 forces widespread school closures in the future.”  They indicate that school districts need to have their plans presented to DESE by August.  But it doesn’t give a specific date.  Hope it’s before August 25, because that’s when my daughter returns to school.  That’s confusion number one for me.

Confusion number two are the discrepancies they present in physical distancing.  The document states that the “federal CDC has recommended maintaining a physical distance of six feet between individuals, the World Health Organization’s guidance states approximately three feet”.  Then under the “Distancing Requirements” section it states “As reviewed and advised by the Massachusetts COVID-19 Command Center Medical Advisory Group, schools should aim for a physical distance of six feet when feasible and three feet is the minimum distance allowed”.  So what the fuck is it?  Six feet or three feet?  How about we go halfsies and call it a day?

I may have missed it but the only time they mention a bus is when they indicate everyone needs to wear a face mask on the bus.  I don’t recall reading anything about how many kids they plan to fit on a bus or how they plan on sitting them on the bus.  Especially if they need to remain six (or three) feet apart.

It is being recommended that students are to be placed in “cohorts” and will remain in their “cohort” throughout the day.  Of course it doesn’t mention anything about the one kid in the cohort who is a bully and chooses to pick on all the other kids in the cohort.  Because you know that will be the case in many “cohorts”.  But that’s another topic for another day, isn’t it?

The guidelines suggest using alternative spaces in the school for teaching (i.e., cafeteria, library, auditorium).  Even teaching outside.  Yes, that will be great in January.  It is even suggested teaching at a different location off campus.  Anyone up for learning at the local Dunks?

I’m not even going to discuss the financial aspects, because apparently this document believes each school district and each school district family is loaded.  Families are to provide their own face masks, but there will allegedly be back ups at school.  Hand wipes.   Hand sanitizer.  Sanitizer I can find.  Wipes I haven’t seen since February.  Disinfecting wipes I haven’t seen since February either and although I know you can order the commercial brand, I hope schools realize that they are on at least a month’s back order.  And to be able to provide enough of these materials for people within a school for 180 days.  For some districts that cost will break them.

I can’t speak for other school districts but mine has laid off twenty-two educators.  I know many others have faced the same situation and that will put a burden on many as well.

None of us know what the new school year will bring.  Anyone physically going to school and getting COVID-19 will not surprise me.  Because that is a very likely scenario.  We can only hope for the best, hope for not many cases and hope for the best kind of education one can receive under this “new normal”.
