What’s With This Crazy World?

I don’t recognize this world. 

This world has gone to sleep. 

It’s not the world of life I used to know. 

Now fear and isolation pervade about.Β 

Things aren’t even what they seem or they seem to be what they aren’t. 

Everything is glossed over and black and white are easily substituted. 

There used to be a moral ground and a forward path. 

Now you have to have a stronger faith and inner conviction than ever before. 

To see the light at the end of the tunnel and hope it’s the light we all yearn for.  πŸ˜‰

Horrors in U.S. Healthcare

So I have been sick the last 9 days, and don’t really know what it is (bad cold, flu, or Covid).Β 

But I am hearing that Covid is spiraling around just about every family that I know now. 

The new most contagious Covid variant is in at least 3 states, but I would suspect it’s in all of them by now.  We’ll find that out way after the fact. 

G-d only knows whether the Covid vaccines will work on the mutated Coronavirus and how this will impact the runaway pandemic.  Will it be back to the Vaccine drawing board?

While many healthcare workers have been extraordinary during these difficult times, I’ve been appalled at some recent cases of horrible care. 

Example 1:

Went to CVS Minute Clinic, they gave me some antibiotics, but said go this afternoon for a Covid test, which I had already booked prior at another CVS location that does the tests.Β Β 

I drive 10 miles sick to go there, and when I arrive they tell me, they don’t have my appointment anymore even though I show them “black and white” my confirmation!  “The system must’ve kicked you out because you were at another CVS earlier in the day.” I said, I need to be tested, and they were adamant that there was nothing they could do.  Their completely incompetent store manager told me to call and make another appointment for another day.  I said, I waited two days for this appointment, drove ten miles, and waited a long time on line.  He said, that’s too bad and I should call the 800 number if I wasn’t happy. I said, it’s your mistake, so you call the 800 number.  I told him I wasn’t leaving the line until they resolved this. The manager was a rude SOB, but finally one of the pharmacists said the nurse can put me back in the system and they would in fact see me. 

Well, lo and behold, a day passes, and I get a call the test didn’t work.  Make another appointment.  Ok, now I really have no choice.  I go to another CVS, this one was actually much better and gave comprehensive instructions on how to take the Covid test. So much for good CVS and bad CVS!  

Example 2:

Someone else in my family was sick and also goes to the CVS Minute Clinic.  They give her not much more than Tylenol.  But tell her to make another appointment to take care of her ear.  She makes an appointment, and I take her to yet another CVS location the next day.  Well guess what, the Physician’s Assistant refuses to treat her ear.  He sits us down and tells us that he has a wife and kids at home and doesn’t want to possibly get Covid since she was at the Minute Clinic the day before.  I explain that all they gave her was Tylenol.  He says, “Anything can be Covid!  And I’m not going to go in the room to clean out the ear for maybe 20 to 30 minutes.”  Well then why in the hell did this guy go into the medical profession?

Example 3:

I contact another pharmaceutical outlook (not CVS) for a prescription.  They quote me $2,500 dollars.  I say “That’s 10 tens what they usually charge me so there must be a typo.”  Oh no, that’s the price for the branded drug.  Maybe you meant the generic which is only $250!  Same drug but ten times the price!

I’m sorry folks our healthcare system in the U.S. is very broken indeed.Β  By calling attention to these things, I hope to bring positive change for all our sakes.Β πŸ˜‰

A Perfect Biowarfare Attack!

**WARNING, WARNING, WARNING **

So how would you conduct a biowarfare attack?

You wouldn’t want to release a full-scale deadly pathogen, because then you would endanger your own population as well as your adversary. 

But instead, you release a pathogen (like Coronavirus) that is just deadly and contagious enough to cause a worldwide panic, shutting down countries and economies and threatening to overwhelm hospitals and emergency responders.

Then you would watch patiently as vaccines are developed that everyone would need to get to resume their lives and jobs. Of course, the vaccines get rushed through development, approval, and distribution in order to calm the fearful and disenfranchised populace. 

And here is where you would have your adversaries by their you know what, because if your agents can then infiltrate the vulnerabilities of the overwhelmed and unprepared, civilian pharmaceutical companies, their supply chains, or distribution networks during the emergency, and contaminate the vaccines with a really lethal pathogen, you would ensure that all your adversaries are eliminated (from their leadership on down to the blue collar workers in society), while your own population (which wouldn’t get those vaccines from abroad) would be absolutely fine. 

Maybe even the first dose is intentionally passed through okay to lull the population and its leadership into the trap, but then the follow-on doses are tainted once the flies are already in the spider’s web. 

Your adversaries are now sick and/or dead, but their countries and infrastructure are fully functioning and in place for you to take as spoils. 

World domination, it can happen as plain and simple as this.

Look around you at what’s happening in our times. Mad men or genius, but this is more than any science fiction could offer.  πŸ˜‰

Vaccine Fears

So I was talking with someone about the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines coming out to protect again Coronavirus. 

They tell me that the news is reporting 95% effectiveness and then they pull out their smartphone and show me a cartoon of someone taking the vaccine and their face is all deformed (I won’t go into the details). 

So I ask him:

Are you going to talk the vaccine?

He says:

“No!”

I ask:

Do you take the flu vaccine?

Again he says :

No, it’s poison!

He thinks some more and says (jokingly, I believe):

And if some big burly guys try to hold me down and make me take it, I’ll tell them I’m gonna go out and get a gun and come back tomorrow and shoot them. 

Bottom line: there is some real fear and apprehension out there about these vaccines. 

And surely, some people do have negative effects–whatever that percentage is. 

Personally, I will take the vaccine. I would rather try and fail (hopefully not), than never try at all!  

How long the vaccine is effective for–that’s another matter all together. πŸ˜‰

If The Other Side Wins The Election

Still no firm results on who will be the next President of the U.S. of A. 

I think this is how a lot of people feel…

Β Β  Β ifΒ the other side wins the election (look where he’s picking from)!

A picture is worth a thousand words. 

One thing we know for sure is that the polls and the “Fake News” media got it all wrong again! πŸ˜‰

Chucky Rules The Road

This was a scary mother of a truck. 

It had Chucky perched spread-eagle over the front crash bumper. 

Imagine looking in your rearview mirror and seeing this barreling down on you. 

Chucky rules the road and he’s coming for you.

It’s too late to run and hide. 

He’s gonna get you!

Consider yourself dead meat and it’s not even Friday the 13th. πŸ˜‰

Much To Be Afraid Of

Life size scary-looking Jack In The Box at Home Depot. 


When this clown dude pops out, you’ll sh*t your pants. 


And who really wants to be more scared in this world anyway?


With Covid, Cancer, Corruption, Cyber Attacks, Identity Theft, Radicalism, Terrorism, War, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Loss and Death, Environmental issues, and the Economy don’t we have enough to be afraid of already?Β  πŸ˜‰
