2020 the Year of the Plague

Part I: This Bastards is Trying to Kill Us


We are being told to thoroughly wash our hands,

to help protect us all from the coronavirus.

I remember Pontius Pilate washing his hands

saying it wasn’t up to him to condemn Jesus.

Trump has washed his hands of properly fighting this virus

and is thus, condemning many of our citizens to death.

He cut the program that monitored pandemics around the world.

He called it “obsolete” and thought it was a good way to save money.

And all the Republican leaders stood with him on cutting the program.

Intelligence agencies warned Trump of the dangers of the coronavirus.

He ignored the epidemic warnings for 3 months.

He initially, called it a ”Democrat Hoax.”

He failed to initiate tests for the virus.

He has told the Americans one lie after another,

trying to cover-up his role in this epidemic crisis.

He wants people to believe that he was on top

of this problem from the very beginning.

He told America that he did not “accept any responsibility at all”.

He claims he deserves a ten for the great job he is doing on this pandemic.

He refuses to accept the advice of doctors and experts in the field of viruses.

He believes he knows more than all of them put together.

Just like he knows more about the military than the generals,

even though he’s a chicken hawk with five draft deferments.

He claims he alone, will decide when America is safe from this pandemic.

And the Republican leaders in the house and senate still remain silent.

Rush spoke out saying Trump is in charge.

He says that makes him feel safe and secure.

He added after all, the American people elected Trump,

they didn’t elect so called medical experts

wearing their clean white laundered lab coats.

I note the Rush has advanced lung cancer.

He is in a clinical trial run by medical experts.

I’m wondering why Rush didn’t just consult Dr. Trump.


Part II: Morons With Microphones /Media Pundits


During a Fox News “town hall” with President Trump

Trump read a headline from the Gateway Pundit.

It accuses New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo

of establishing “death panels” in his response

to the coronavirus outbreak in New York.

The Gateway Pundit has an ultra low credibility

rating from fact checkers and regularly publishes hoaxes

and widely shared wacky conspiracy theories.

Proving that Trump will grab any port in a shit storm.

Trump gives the virus a timeline of Easter to end.

Leading virus expert Dr. Fauci says

you can’t just give it a timeline,

it will give us a timeline when it will end.

Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network,

is only worried about the economy so he

verbally attacks Dr. Fauci and supports Trump.

Right-wing radio talk show host and drug addict

Glenn Beck told listeners, that seniors should get back to work

in order to “keep this economy going and working,”

even if that means risking death to the coronavirus.

One conservative talk radio host went still further,

stating that “If given the choice between dying and plunging

the country I love into a Great Depression, I’d happily die.”

That’s from conservative radio talk show host

and Twitter banned, Internet keyboard cowboy Jesse Kelly.

Scarier still is that this Arizona asshat ran

for the US House of Representatives and almost won.

I do give Jesse some credit for being an Iraqi War veteran.

It’s usually conservative chicken hawk politicians

that send other people’s children off to die in their wars

that only end up benefiting the wealthy in our economy.

I’ll give Jesse credit for volunteering to die for that economy.

His tomb stone can have an epitaph worthy of a conservative.

“Here lies a real hero, Jesse Kelly, he died for the economy.”

Meanwhile, over at FOX News Britt Hume and Tucker Carlson

talk about who should die to save the U.S. economy.

They both agree is should be our senior citizens.

Does FOX’s main viewing audience realize that these two

are talking about turning them into soylent green?

I ask you to forget about people who can’t get tested for the virus.

Forget about people who can’t get treated for the virus.

Forget that exhausted doctors and nurses are risking their lives

fighting this virus while wearing trash bags for protection.

Forget about those who die alone stacked up in a refrigerated truck.

Forget about those families that can’t even have a funeral for loved ones.

Instead, consider the plight of FOX & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt.

She declared, “People are dying-but my friends can’t get their nails done.”

What kind of a soulless monster do you have to be to get a job at FOX?

Propaganda requires constant reinforcement.

Which leads us to number one Trump fluffer, Sean Hannity.

Hannity says Trump is doing a great job on the epidemic

and liberals are just out to get President Trump.

Remember when Hannity said waterboarding wasn’t torture?

He said he’d volunteer to be waterboarded to prove it.

He claimed he’d be happy to do it for charity donations.

Well, I’m still waiting with a bucket of water and a check for charity.

FOX News is now worrying that they misled viewers

by supporting Trump’s denials about the pandemic.

They aren’t worried that people died by believing FOX’s lies.

They are worried about loss of money by being sued.

Fake media, indeed.


Part III: JESUS Save Us From Your So Called Followers


Were we suppose to feel safe because Trump put VP Pence

in charge of the task force to fight the coronavirus epidemic?

Mike Pence is a Christian with a history of anti-science views.

He doesn’t believe in evolution and is a climate change denier.

He’s denied that cigarettes are dangerous and as Governor of Indiana

he was single-handedly responsible for a statewide AIDS outbreak.

Christian minister Rev. Landon Spradlin preached

that the pandemic was “mass hysteria” from the media.

He said the media is using the pandemic to hurt Trump.

Ironically, the virus didn’t get the memo about being a hoax

and Rev. Spradlin was one of the first coronavirus deaths in Virginia.

Rusty Reno, the editor of First Things, a conservative Christian journal,

stated that saving some people from the virus would cost

too much money so they aren’t worth saving.

I guess he forgot about Jesus preaching among the lepers.

Pentecostal minister, Irvin Baxter president of Endtime Ministries

claimed that the virus is a warning from God about the sin

of fornication among our nations unmarried couples.

Seems odd to me, that God created a virus that resulted in home isolation,

that gives unmarried people the opportunity to stay home and fornicated more.

Capital Ministries, Minister Ralph Drollinger leads a Bible study

every weekday for many members of Trump’s cabinet.

He said the virus may be our punishment from God,

for progressive ideas like; environmentalism, lesbianism and homosexuality.

He even throws in China to his list of things Christians should hate.

Drollinger ignores that Trump personifies everything a Christian should not be.

Perhaps, God is punishing us for electing Trump as president.

God personally told me to tell people,

“Folks, Trump lost by 3 million votes,

start using that Democracy I gave to the U.S.”

Anti-Semite, bigot and conspiracy wacko Pastor, Rick Wiles

at laugh, cough Trunews broadcasted that Israel was seeing virus outbreaks

in connection with synagogues because God was sending

a deadly plague on the Jews for opposing Jesus Christ.

He claimed that if they renounce their antichrist false religion

and fall down and worship Christ the virus will end in Israel.

I guess Rick forgot that Jesus was of the Jewish faith.

If you get all of your news and information from the scribes

and the Pharisees like these so called, Christians

you’ll end up voting for more thieves like Barabbas and

passing over any people of real faith fighting for a better world.

We have some ministers preaching the Prosperity Gospel.

They feel there is no money in Heaven so you should make

as much as you can while you are on this planet,

for there are no pockets in a shroud.

These people are meeting someone on the other side

the bad news for them is that it is not Jesus.


Part IV: Politicians: Representatives? They don’t represent anyone I know.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is the first member

of the U.S. Senate to test positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus;

less than a week before, his father Ron Paul, a former U.S. congressman,

wrote a column saying he felt the global pandemic was a “big hoax.”

Sen. Rand Paul reportedly went about his daily routine

after being tested for the coronavirus,

before his test came back positive,

he worked out in the senate gym and swam in the pool

and went to lunch with other politicians.

Paul, is a medical eye doctor and ignored

his Hippocratic Oath to do no harm.

I guess one could say that Rand is an amateur

on the recklessly endangering scale compared to Trump.

This virus is proving that nurses and doctor are our new heroes.

Many of these nurses who are fighting the coronavirus epidemic

with little or no protective gear and at grave risks to their lives,

are being kicked out of their rental homes by landlords.

The landlords fear these nurses may bring the virus home with them.

While these doctors and nurses are writing wills,

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is arguing

over part of the Coronavirus Bailout Bill.

He is speaking against nurses and claiming that they will exploit

the bill and collect unemployment money instead of working.

On the other hand, Lindsey is making sure wealthy corporations

that make billions but don’t pay taxes get a huge share of the bailout money.

The GOP supports death for the poor and minorities that have no medical care.

Which in the end it’s just another type of voter suppression.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is arguing against future aid.

He is afraid some of that aid might go to increasing environmental standards.

Conservatives, unlike most humans seem to thrive on dirty air and filthy water.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick of Texas, said that some people

are going to be willing and need to die to save the economy.

I’m starting to think people might want to volunteer to die.

What with the conservative politicians love of war, nuclear weapons, deregulation,

deforestation, fracking, letting any idiot own an arsenal and climate change denial

the planet isn’t really going to survive much longer anyway.


Part V:   Be a Patriot and Die, So Capitalism Can Live,


Remember when people risked their life for freedom?

Now they are being asked to die for the economy.

Larry Kudlow, the director of President Trump’s National Economic Council,

warned on Fox News that reviving the economy was more important than saving lives.

Human sacrifice is the needed fuel of the free market.

The free market disciples are sick of losing wealth

to the safety of social distancing, even if it saves lives.

Trump cares only about the Dow Jones Industrial Average

and his re-election, not about the lives of the American people.

That is why he tweets, “The real people want to get back to work ASAP.”

Depraved indifference is the standard operating procedure of the GOP.

For decades the GOP has fought against affordable health care.

They’ve fought against regulating medication prices

thus giving our citizens a death sentence.

They’ve sent asylum seekers back to countries

where they end up being incarcerated or murdered,

by brutal dictators that the U.S. supports

and even trains the dictator’s death squads.

All these things including the coronavirus are genocides.

Not really very different from the genocide where our ancestors

provided small pox blankets to Native Americans.

Democracy is starting to disappear  as an election is being put on hold.

MAGA Americans say, we don’t need elections

but by God we do need our guns!

As if gun owners are going to use their boom-sticks

to shoot the virus dead in a stand your ground situation.

Gun shops stay open as they are ruled essential businesses.

The NRA said they will sue any state that closes gun stores.

I wish poor people and workers were protected

as well as guns and gun-owners are.

Lots of guns to go around but not many respirators,

surgical masks, surgical gowns and gloves.

If you sold all of your body parts, you could get up to $45 million.

Loan sharks never pay anywhere near the value of an item.

Neither will the US government who has decided

in the Coronaviruse Bailout Bill that your lives

are worth $1200 each and your children $500 each.

It’s not free money because your taxes will be paying for it.

Because Trump thinks everything in the world revolves around him,

he wants those virus stimulus checks to be sent out explicitly in his name.

I guess Don the Con has never heard of direct deposit.

Besides, any check with Trumps name on it would bounce.

Donnie Dangerous had a press conference again today.

He is on stage with others and not applying the six foot separation rule.

His failures at fighting this virus has sentenced many

of our fellow Americans to being six foot under ground.

Reality TV star Trump made a point of bragging that his daily press conferences

on the coronavirus pandemic have higher ratings than Monday Night Football.

It’s all a competitive game to this egomaniacal monster.

He spoke for an hour and never thanked the doctors and nurses,

who are risking everything trying to clean up

a mess he ignored and let spread to deadly levels.

He actually had the nerve to suggest that New York’s hospital workers

were stealing face masks and selling them on the black market.

I guess a grifter like Trump thinks everyone is a grifter.

If Trump wants to know where all the medical supplies went

all he has to do is look in the mirror at his ugly orange face.

In February his State Department donated 17.8 tons of masks,

respirators and other protective equipment to China.

Trump had ignored U.S. intelligence reports in January

and February warning about a likely U.S. pandemic.

Now we have Trump on Sean Hannity’s show

suggesting he only wants to help governors.

get supplies if they that flatter his needy ego.

The Federal Government is competing with states and outbidding them

for life saving equipment and protective equipment and driving up prices.

Kentucky Governor, Andy Beshear has said that protective masks

which normally cost $.80 each are now selling for more than $4.00.

Amazon is full of people who are trying to sell hand sanitizer

and face masks for ten times what they paid for them.

Welcome to our nations wonderful world of capitalism,

where medical personal and patients die while someone profits.

The EPA announced a new policy rolling back restrictions and regulations

on corporations’ requirements to report air and water pollution.

Which just means down the road the health care system,

will be overwhelmed by the climate crisis,

what with polluted air and water and more weather disasters.

Perhaps, Mother Earth is trying to kill us, to save herself.


“You know there’s no crooked politicians.There’s never a lie because there is never any truth.~ Lenny Bruce

Thanks to all of you who are doing what they can for their neighbors and friends.   Stay safe.

When I retired I swore

I’d fight for the causes

I’ve longed believe in.

I never wanted to become

a voice that went silent.

For the Earth is not the paradise

that it could and should be.

I told myself I’d get up

just like I did for work

but now do volunteer work.

Instead, it’s like I’m fasting

from a need to fight back.

I find myself settled into

a kind of homebound serenity.

Truth is that every day I swear

I’m going to get out of my pajamas.

It doesn’t sound like much of a goal,

but now daily it’s a very lofty goal.

I then remind myself that Brian Wilson

spent three years in his pj’s in bed.

Hell, Hugh Hefner spent decades in pj’s.

I don’t need to dress to impress anyone.

I’ve seen videos of people

in their pj’s at Walmart.

I’ve never been in a Walmart

but that’s a whole other poem.

I think I’ll put my robe on

and walk out to the mailbox

and get the daily newspaper.

It’s February and 15 degrees out.

Even if I had enough ambition

to actually want to go anywhere

it’s so damn cold outside

I’d probably just put on clothes

right over my ever present pajamas.

I later get a second wind

and have enough energy

to get out of my pajamas

and put on clean pajamas.
