The CDC has changed some of the way that deaths are counted which in the USA has lowered the daily average from about 4000/day to closer to 3000/day. These numbers are still political and still really can’t be trusted even with a new administration. It’s too soon for the...

Trump Virus in 2021 – 1/3/2021

Well, it’s not a happy new year for the millions of dead around the world who died of Coronavirus in 2020, nor for their families, nor for the nearly 1/3rd of a million Americans who died on Dumpy’s watch because of his lies and inept handling. He’s a monster...

Creating a Better World – We should at least try, right?

  Aloha and Merry Christmas, First – Trump has to go. There is still no solid guarantee that will happen. He and his most loyal brown shirts are openly discussing insurrection. This even as he refutes that the huge Russian hack was huge or Russian – despite the evidence,...

Trump Virus Update November 22, 2020

The Trump Virus is out of control in the USA with as many as 2000 people dying every day now. Meanwhile, the namesake of the virus goes golfing, continues to try to undermine democracy, and complains about baseless election fraud. I have some theories about what I think it...

We will not survive this…

The emerging consensus seems to be that we will get through this – it will take some time, but we will emerge from the other side of it. I reject that notion. I reject the concept of we, since already more than 30,000 of those who were ‘we’ are...

My Experience with 2020, the year of COVID-19. I’m not sure if I’ve just been waiting for a disaster or if I’m just more informed or if I tend to have a longer view of things than other people – but this pandemic has come as no surprise –...

CoronaVirus and You – COVID-19 and Hysterical Responses

I’m not an epidemiologist or a doctor, I don’t play one on TV. Pandemics and viruses are serious business – but it is my humble opinion that the current hysteria over the COVID-19 virus is waaaaaaaaay overblown. Yes, people are dying and more people will die – but looking...
