Ready for some swine flu?

I got hit with that back in 2009.  Me and about 61 million other Americans.  So about 20% of the country at the time.  It crushed me for a couple weeks, but I recovered okay.

But man oh man, this seems to be a recurring theme - people working in close proximity to farm animals, animals get sick, they spread it to farm workers who then spread it to all humanity.  There has to be a way to break this chain of events so it stops happening.  But aside from going vegan or switching to lab-grown meat, I dunno what it would be.

Very ancient thing.  Called animal husbandry.  For about 11000 years, we have been living in close proximity with our animals (not counting dogs perhaps).  A lot of pandemics happen because germs move from species to species (tricky buggers).  It isn't about eating meat per se (unless you eat uncooked meat) or bestiality.  So unless you want to live in an arboretum (and no animals including no bugs) like a human vegetable, you will have to just live with animal/human exposure.  Your infections help to tame existing bugs (many became more tame after circulating among humans, sometimes) and provide opportunities for bugs to adapt and mutate.  Don't be speciesist!  Accept proudly your opportunity for martyrdom as a living petri dish.  I used my house cats as coronavirus live vaccine injectors.

I am sure the Chinese genius virologists can come up with a virus that can move between plants and animals, then you are very screwed.  The tobacco mosaic virus infects tobacco plants.  How about a weaponized virus that only kills tobacco fans?

The unfortunate fact is, both extremes mis-manage the economy.  That makes both unpopular.  They are maniacs and bureaucrats.  Fortunately for Brits, Tories are Labour-lite.

Arizona governor won't require masks

“Everybody’s going to get COVID one way or the other eventually,” he said.

“There are some people that can’t wear masks for whatever reason, shortness of breath or they are asthmatic,” Ducey said in response to a question about why he wasn’t requiring masks.
I have asthma and I can friggin' jog uphill while talking and wearing a mask.

Karen and/or Kevin absolutely can wear a mask on the laborious trek from their Jeep Cherokee parked literally 6 feet from the Whole Foods front door to the fortified wine aisle.  Just sayin'

"Meijer Stops Accepting Cash As Nationwide Coin Shortage Erupts" ... Midwest supermarket only takes plastic.  Good thing I hoarded my pennies.  The rest of you can sit outside with a cup and pencil on the sidewalk begging, when your credit/debit goes poof.

"The COVID Crisis Supercharged The War On Cash" ... currency carries viruses.  Give all your currency to the government.  I am from the government, here to help you ... bwahaha.  Yes, get everyone on debit cards, then set off the EMP.

The US has bought up virtually all the stocks for the next three months of one of the two drugs proven to work against Covid-19, leaving none for the UK, Europe or most of the rest of the world.

Experts and campaigners are alarmed both by the US unilateral action on remdesivir and the wider implications, for instance in the event of a vaccine becoming available. The Trump administration has already shown that it is prepared to outbid and outmanoeuvre all other countries to secure the medical supplies it needs for the US.

“They’ve got access to most of the drug supply [of remdesivir], so there’s nothing for Europe,” said Dr Andrew Hill, senior visiting research fellow at Liverpool University.

Remdesivir, the first drug approved by licensing authorities in the US to treat Covid-19, is made by Gilead and has been shown to help people recover faster from the disease. The first 140,000 doses, supplied to drug trials around the world, have been used up. The Trump administration has now bought more than 500,000 doses, which is all of Gilead’s production for July and 90% of August and September.

We just spent at least 250 million to make sure, for the next three months, the United States is the only country with access to this drug that helps people recover from Covid-19.

The pills cost a reported $10 dollars to make, we paid something like $500 a pop.

Guardian ... London Communist rag.  But yes, the US should.  China did in Jan/Feb.  Every asshole for themselves.  Fuck the rest of the world, they are enemies of the US (except maybe parts of Britain/Australia).  If we are going to nuclear war, I am not concerned about drug availability for the soon to be corpses.

"Global Hydroxychloroquine Study To Resume After Positive Trial Results" ... anything not useful to CCP, WHO, Gates or Fauci is ... eeeevil.

Dr Faustus ... Dr Fauci ... hmmm.  Lots of people have sold their souls to the Devil since 1963.  Read "The Decameron".
