Who could have predicted it? Why, it looks like mask mandates & lockdowns are roaring back! “Cases” of the “Delta Variant” have “surged”! Be afraid, very afraid – of a disease that was never a threat to anyone even moderately healthy, from which over 99.9% of people recover unless they are already dying of something else, and which, after the nature of its kind, has mutated into a more infectious yet much, much less deadly ‘variant’.
Nursing homes, where we in America send most of our sick elderly to die, have been restocked since the last ‘spike’ earlier this year, and so, if necessary, many, many more deaths can be attributed to COVID. Too bad family and friends aren’t allowed into nursing homes to see exactly how far the level of care has fallen, or, indeed, whether grandpa is being cared for at all. Since the presence of any two symptoms of COVID is sufficient for a diagnosis (that’s what the rules say), and those symptoms include aches, a fever, a cough, and trouble breathing, just about any nursing home death can be attributed to the dreaded coof. Virtually anyone who dies of any lingering illness, let alone a a cold or flu that descends into pneumonia as they so often do in the sickly elderly, has two of those symptoms. If desired, the current COVID test can be done – just run it for 40 cycles, and a positive result is all but guaranteed.
GUY I don’t like this… I don’t like this at all…
GWEN Oh, they’re so cute.
GUY Of course they’re cute NOW. But in a second they’re going to turn MEAN and UGLY somehow and then there are going to be a million MORE of them!…
(another blue creature emerges. This one limps, its leg is hurt. It moves forward, dragging its bad foot along the ground)
EVERYONE Awwww….. It’s hurt…
(Gwen rises up a little, tentatively waving at Limpy…)
GWEN Hi!… Hi there little guy…
(Guy pushes her down behind the rock before the creatures notice.)
GUY Jesus, didn’t ANY of you watch the show!?
(The blue creatures turn toward Limpy, and begin whispering in an alien tongue…)
GWEN Aw, look. They’re helping the hurt one…
(suddenly, the aliens smile, revealing horrible sharp teeth. They attack LIMPY, ripping him apart.)
GUY I am SO SICK of being right.From a fan transcription of Galaxy Quest, the ‘Miners, not minors’ scene
If you are waiting around for some career political hack in a lab coat, some stern-faced politician who owes his office to a totally legitimate and fair election such as have taken place in Chicago over the last 150 years, or some news reader with all the objectivity of a kamikaze to sound the all clear, you will be waiting for a long, long time.
The lockdowns, masks, etc., never had anything to do with the evidence in the real world. No developments in the real world will cause them to stop.
