The virus…what to say? I take it seriously, this is nothing to take casually.  Aside from the virus itself, there is all the surreal and truly insane culture around the virus. I wear the masks and gloves and practice social distancing and leave the house only for things like groceries. (After my bout with pneumonia in the fall I am very careful.)

The bozo-nazis who storm state capitols while armed (and yet, often, masked) are unfortunately, yet understandably, thrown into the conspiracy crazy pot. Yet there is the obvious reality: the virus is intentional, and the manipulations by many in power are also intentional. The shadowy forces never tire. They are working feverishly away at keeping the virus culture alive. All the anxiety, frustrations, money problems, intense emotions, political and religious nonsense is kept alive by these forces. Conspiracy? Yes. So what. As the saying goes, just because it’s a conspiracy doesn’t make it not true.

It’s in your face time. rTrump visits a mask making factory — not wearing a mask, though  he is wearing goggles for some reason — while, get this, Live and Let Die plays in the background. Just one of many obvious we’re laughing at you, Jack, moments in the current global madness.
