UPDATE: Lunch was delicious.
This comment is still cracking me up:
What are you doing to pass the time during quarantine?
I’ve been camping for the past few days with friends, hunting wild hogs in the morning and evening, fishing during the day and drinking by a fire at night. The spring weather is fantastic here in Alabama. My son caught this catfish yesterday. We spent the day fishing at a nearby creek and later at our pond. We also listened to Mike Enoch on TRS making fun of Ramzpaul while doing it.
BTW, the world is not ending and this isn’t a “doomer” website. I’ve never once said that the coronavirus is a “doomsday virus” or that this is the “end of the world.” My position from the beginning in January has always been that the coronavirus is a highly infectious, moderately lethal virus. It should have been taken seriously. Even if the worst case scenario occurred and millions of people died from the virus, life would continue as it did after the Spanish Flu which is barely remembered these days. Instead of taking the virus seriously, the American political class bungled their response to the virus due to a fatal combination of arrogance, stupidity, greed, complacency and incompetence. It is not my job as a dissident to defend these people though so I have simply accepted reality and have tried to make the best of the situation. I already had a very low opinion of our politicians anyway. I don’t need to believe in a massive global conspiracy to explain this clusterfuck. I really do think the people who rule us are just this dumb. This includes all the “journalists” who also said it was “just the flu” in January and February.
It wasn’t just Donald Trump who dismissed the coronavirus. THEY ALL DISMISSED THE VIRUS AND SAID IT WAS LIKE THE FLU:
What did they expect to happen? When any American can get on a plane during an outbreak of a new highly contagious virus, fly to China or Italy or Iran and get infected, fly back home, pass though customs with ZERO SCREENING at airports and proceed to just go about their lives coughing all over everyone and touching everything … WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO HAPPEN? Back in January and February, our political class decided to do nothing about this virus and to continue with business as usual because to take action would have been “racism” and “xenophobia” (the Left) and the stock market was at a record high (the Right) and to just write off anyone who died from the virus as having died from something equivalent to the flu. The people who ended up dying from the virus in the United States were seen as expendable. It was far more important at the time to virtue signal about racism and to avoid “spooking the markets.”
Note: ZERO people have died in Vietnam which like Mongolia shares a border with China. Apparently, Vietnam doesn’t have an incompetent elite and puts Vietnam First. They were smart enough to shutdown international flights and quarantine foreigners entering their country.
