What the “Experts” say
First they denied any issue. They kept planes coming. No Worries!
Then they did minor league inspection with a thermometer, all whilst reports came back of asymptomatic spreading of disease. No Worries!
Now we find out 2/3 of the population is at risk and it can’t be contained. No Worries!
Whats the plan?????????? No Worries! We’ve got your back!
When our governments control the narrative, for their own financial self interest (think corporate lobbyists here) over that of the health of their people………
They’ve been doing this for all the long term Giant Turdballs; Climate Chaos, Biosphere collapse, Peak Oil, et. al.
Now using the same playbook they have attempted to pull the same wool over our eyes. Because someone deemed us unable to handle the news? We might panic? Might hurt the financial markets? They now get to reap what they have sown. A pox on their house doesn’t seem fitting.
The worlds leaders have proven themselves untrustworthy and have laid a bed of sorrow for us to all lie down in.
My response, ” Fuck you and the fuckers you hang with! I am supposed to let you guide me??? I cannot say this loud enough, FUCK YOU!

Keystone Cops in Action
Remember that these are the people that we hope can lead us through the dark times. I swear they make it up as they go along. This from the CDC ($11 Billion /yr budget, Best country in the world, Blessed by God, Exceptional.) …..and monkeys fly out of my butt!
Ya’ll ain’t that exceptional. Except how to make money. (at the expense of the entire planet). Only now its looking like it will bite you in the ass.

Wrap it up….please
I’m pretty tired of trying to talk to people and posting and getting the blase’ look of a cow chewing cud. This has been going on since I first posted about nCoV, Jan 27. A lack of historical perspective, lack of understanding of our uniquely delicate position as an over populating, over consuming mammal on a finite planet and adoration of shiny things, seems to have developed a “No Worries” attitude through out the populace.
We simply do not appear to comprehend the magnitude of this Extra Giant Turball hurtling our way. And when it does we will see humanity at its worse. Reality TV will now be front and centre on our front yards. Scrambling to survive.
Not from the health issue side, but simply because we can’t survive without store bought shit.
We’re on our own here folks. (my dear Three)
