EXACTLY. Kids. This is the SARS virus that circulated in 2003. Now we are risking financial ruin to keep people too weak to fight a virus with a low case fatality rate because of the idiots insisting everyone must live forever. Meanwhile, all these people in nursing homes they’re obsessed with are quietly dying from influenza. If my work closes down I will be ruined financially. I’d rather take my chance with this glorified cold and isolate the weak people.
This is what we endure from June-November every year in Florida. First, they talk about the old timey hurricanes. Then they segue into the 2004 season. Then 2005. Luckily for these fear mongering jackals, the 2017 season gave them more cannon fodder. Shot of some normal looking small Florida waves in north bay village. Cut to Katrina. Some guy in NC babbling about the frying pan tower. Cut to Camille. Some fool with plastic Ken doll hair tells us this just formed tropical wave 2,000 miles away could be the “big one”. Cut to Andrew. Before it hit, it was called the “big one”. Now it gets relegated to second class citizen, though it was a super unusual small hurricane that acted like a giant tornado. Now poor Andrew sucks, though I saw the incredible destruction myself. They downplay it because we rebounded from it. Can’t use it to scare us with anymore.
I loathe these people. Thoughts become things. They want bad thoughts for their ratings. I’d watch the damn news if it were news and not opinion pieces, and some of it was good. PS saw a doctor On TV who opined it was our responsibility to maintain our health to prepare for pandemics, this overall wasn’t doomsday, and he thought the fear mongering was more damaging. Of course he was shouted down by the non MD reporter child who called him a victim blamer. Every person in my training class at work eats fast food for each meal. They are obese with health problems. That is 100% their fault. They are at greater risk for disease than I am. Viruses take the sick and weak. That’s sort of their job. People in nursing homes with no quality of life, no mobility, pooping their pants. Sure, let’s crash the economy so they can get one more miserable year in.
