I would like to make a heartfelt apology to my readers.

I realize I have become a sort of a dick and I apologize for that. I know people are just trying to get through this stupid time the best they can.
Having said that......I believe this "fear" narrative is the phoniest thing ever. It's just a way for Republicans to peer pressure you into not talking about things the herd doesn't want you to. 
That is not happening here. The "fear narrative" is going to trigger me every time because I don't believe it exists.  But, I will try to not be condescending.
You guys don't have to give a single fuck - just get out of the way of those who know our economy can not sustain people putting their hands over their eyes and saying " I don't see anything here".

I'm sure he will live. (probably)

It's already too late basically. It's in 20 States and 40 41 countries. We have community spread in Hawaii and Sacramento and Georgia apparently... so all those gay gay gays are not the only ones who can get it. It's definitely not airborne like SARS COv2.

Thankfully it's so mild people have to be on morphne. Animal workers are already starting to be forced into being vaccinated because people are too stupid to not let this happen. Once in the animal population all bets are off what it mutates into.

The vaccine hasn't really been tested on anyone. So that's great news.

Mr S. thinks the government keeps denying how bad the problem is because if they do then people will expect a plan. And it turns out - they never had a plan. Hell they didn't even have masks in the strategic reserve. I'd place money that they don't have all the vaxxes they need either.

But don't worry! Such a clown show.

How Boomers are assholes in one tweet.

I know this person is a Boomer because I'm GenX and I was too young to get the shot.  

This person seems to understand getting these diseases as an adult, is bad. But, because they got a shot as a child, everyone else is over reacting. Despite them stopping the shot in 1972.

It's going to be super fun to find out the REAL immunity in the Boomer group because a couple people with Monkeypox had been vaccinated against small pox. One I believe was in the 90's. When this report everyone was sort of shocked because it was well pas the point where it was mandated.

The US now has cases in 19 States in ONE MONTH. The WHO is saying we need to act with speed to get this under control, and basically you can see how things are going to go from the above tweet. As usual... the US is like LOL! The pox is actually spreading faster than COVID SARS-2.

I'm actually cool with everything right now because I think this is a self resolving problem. We should have stopped requiring masks year one. No one learned anything from the training wheel phase. And worse! Workers have ZERO protections. I mean, I'm starting to read stories of doctors being denied disability benefits for long COvID SARS-2. Super fucked up.

The housing crisis is jealous with envy.

"In April 2022, Palm Springs home prices were up 40.4% compared to last year, selling for a median price of $640K. On average, homes in Palm Springs sell after 23 days on the market compared to 37 days last year. There were 190 homes sold in April this year, down from 240 last year."

When everyone was out doing premature victory laps, I was wondering what happens when they figure out that we were in recession the whole time and the only reason it didn't seem like it was because we were printing soooooo much money. Nothing new was created. But everyone was just spending their stimmies like it was the roaring 20's. Because that pesky pandemic was just on the cusp of being over. Said in the most sarcastic way.

Even worse.....the government put in place all sorts of eviction moratoriums that put a floor on prices going down. The rental moratorium doesn't even end (at least here) until June 30. And it's hard to tell exactly where the foreclosure moratorium stands because of the way it written.

Then the Fed comes in and drops a nuke on the housing market. I mean, mortgage company layoffs started like 3 weeks ago. Now the Fed just blew the everything bubble completely out of the water for inflation they can not fix. It is primarily driven by labor shortages. Literally everyone it out sick.

Now layoffs have accelerated sharply. Tesla is laying off 10,000. Construction will be next. And we get to find out what fun exciting creative financing caused Palm Springs houses to go up 40% in one year. Everywhere else at least 20%. Because that happens in the middle of a Pandemic when nothing new happened except creating money out of thin air.

Also... lots of finance guys seem to be confused why the economy isn't responding like the 20's. Maybe it's because the way the media talked about the lockdowns. Gyms and nail salons got all of the attention, but pretty much every place else was open. 

I don't really know what the plan is now because we were never NOT in recession. The government just basically backstopped everyone with FORGIVEN PPP loans and when the spigot stops.........? People will find out the true nature of the economy. I'd say the last two years were completely lost. We haven't made a single bit of progress.

I think it's funny.

This is what people voted for. I don't care how bad it gets. 

I've reached a new phase because I love it when people can't shift the consequences of their choices.

820 Days in...

And still this:

When will COVID-19 start to fade away? Experts say Houston is in the midst of another surge

"The wastewater right now, the COVID is just as bad as it was late August, early September, which was a major surge. It is not quite as bad as the omicron surge in early January," McDeavitt explained. 

COVID concern has become less for a lot of people, but one question we would all like to know the answer to: When will this virus finally be just another sickness we have to deal with? 

"I can't predict exactly when that's going to occur. I think we are probably a surge or two away from that happening. Perhaps as we get through this winter, I think it's going to be fully baked into sort of our background psyche...It's going to be with us forever. I think we are within probably weeks to months of having it just in the background like all of the other infectious diseases we always have to deal with," McDeavitt said."

You have to excuse me for being extra surly lately. I've spent the last year being completely canceled from society by people who just don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

People like me have been called neurotic, controlling,  safety cult, Karen, sheep. Just name a few. Just for telling people the truth the whole time.

Now..... you've got your wish. This is what endemic means for COVID. Good job everyone. This is the BEST it gets. Just wait till you see what version 4 and 5 do.

And then these asshole "experts" saying we are just a surge or two away from it being nothing. I thought the last version was the offramp version. 

I literally see people all the time that take these experts opinions and don't protect themselves. People who CLEARLY should be. If I can see you have diabetes from just looking at you - maybe you are the first person that needs protection. And these are not fatties. They are skinny old guys who have bandages on their calves and that weird diabetes color creeping up their legs. But.... it's their choice.

I just can't take this stupidity anymore.

I'm so tired. America basically deserves what it gets at this point because of these clowns. We are living the real life Idiocracy movie.

So... this morning I log in to see wha the internets are saying and hit this article.

Diseases suppressed during Covid are coming back in new and peculiar ways.

"As the Covid-19 pandemic and resultant social restrictions have abated in much of the world, other viruses are rearing their heads in new and unusual ways. 

Influenza, Respiratory syncytial virus, adenovirus, tuberculosis and monkeypox are among a number of viruses to have spiked and exhibited strange behaviors in recent months.   <----

Health experts say Covid-19 restrictions could have reduced exposure and lowered immunity to infectious diseases, making society more vulnerable to new outbreaks."

FFS! Lockdowns have reduced exposure too TB?!? A very infectious disease that we basically eradicated.  Now they are normalized living with TB? 

I just can't even when people don't even know what diseases we are suppose to reduce exposure too. Also they stopped vaccinating in 2005 because we had eradicated it!

The whole chin diaper thing is going to be funny with this one. Let's see how we are fixing this. Herd immunity? Moving on?

This is not slowing down.

I'm pretty sure there was a reason our ancestors didn't decide to live with communicable diseases. The government printing GOBS of money gave the illusion that wave after wave of illness isn't going to decimate business and "living with COvid" was going to to be just fine and dandy. 

I mean, seriously.... what "tools" do they have to fight a downturn at this point after handing people almost 100 grand completely tax free?

Now, we are trying to make sense of a new threat. Monkeypox has reached 15 States as of this morning. Even my county has a case now. Instead of this slowing down... it does seem to be accelerating. 

While trying to make sense of all the reports - an interesting (IMO) case popped up. Because everyone is searching for pustules.  This guy apparently didn't get ANY of that. Not like it matters at all because the Texas case got right on a plane from Mexico after he was told he has the POX.

At any rate....I think it's pretty likely this gets crazy because we obviously have some asymptomatic spread. 

Also, there is starting to be some pretty serious talk about lab manipulation with the POX. All experts now say it is highly unusual for this virus to mutate the way it currently is. It would take 50 years in the wild as it's had a fairly stable mutation rate. Something like one or to a year. This one has some 40 odd mutations.

But.. I see people all over saying what hypochondriacs we are. Good luck with that. Virus always wins.  It seems like America is taking the same lazy path on the pox. Other countries warning us, and the US just saying LOL.

Let's see how funny it is when the government isn't printing GOBS of money.

People are poorly adapted to pain.

They will do the craziest things to avoid it, even if it drags the problem out for much longer. They ALWAYS refuse the hard short path in favor of the slightly milder indefinite pain path. It's the craziest thing. It's why the housing crisis lasted so long. And it's why what we are going through now is not going away any time soon.

I find it very hard to find things to post about because i think everyone is living in a complete fantacy.

For instance....I think most of this inflation talk is bullshit. Oh - prices certainly ARE high. But what do you expect when the government FORGIVES 4.1 MILLION PPP loans. Average loan? 95,700. There is always a point in a crisis when you feel like a real chump and this is certainly it. There were many times in the housing crisis that losers got handouts. Those people squandered it anyway, and basically that's what is happening now. Everyone thinks they are a genius when the government is handing out free money. And even worse..... the requirement of PPP loan forgiveness was too spend 60% on staff.
What do you think happens when they can't continue employing those people because it wasn't based on increased earnings?

It was super perplexing during the pandemic that every business staffed WAY up.  Based ENTIRELY on nothing more than a one time benefit.

So....we are three years into this pandemic, and we aren't really too further along. I'd say we are much worse off. I mean, we have two countries (The UK and Canada) that are freaking out about how newly disabled people are going to swamp the system. Thank goodness this is all just a bad cold.

don't worry!

Trump should run on just blowing up the CDC. Because they clearly do not know how to control disease.

I wanted to show everyone how Australian HACK doctors are talking about the monkeypox outbreak. Our media will be doing exactly the same thing soon. We just don't have enough cases yet. These same types of hacks said COVID would never get into the US.

The article starts out with a fake narrative of someone being "terrified" of catching the Pox. The "doctors" reply? 

"Hi Sharon, remember when you were a kid being terrified of the monster under the bed? Most of your terror came from the unknown, and you would imagine the creature below from spooky shadows and mysterious sounds creaking throughout the night. Do you remember when all that terror was put to bed when all you had to do was check underneath and see nothing was there? The Monkeypox virus has become your new monster under the bed. In order to calm yourself down, you need to be informed of what it actually is, its potential danger to yourself and others, and how to limit transmission. "

The message? You are just being a big fat pussy. You are imagining things.

Now to the infuriating part.

Is monkeypox dangerous? 

"Now to the danger of monkeypox. Let’s start out by saying there are treatments and vaccines that work for it – so at this stage no need to worry about waiting a year for one to be made if it turns into a worldwide pandemic. With monkeypox, vaccination will only be needed for individual cases and due to its incubation period of up to 21 days, close contacts. There will be no need for a widespread vaccination effort as at this stage it requires contact of a susceptible person with body fluids.

The transmission rate for monkeypox is also very low – with only about 3 per cent of contacts being infected. '

If you type treatment monkeypox into google - this is the FIRST thing that comes up!@

"At this time, there are no specific treatments available for monkeypox infection, but monkeypox outbreaks can be controlled. Smallpox vaccine, cidofovir, ST-246, and vaccinia immune globulin (VIG) can be used to control a monkeypox outbreak. "


Lemme tell you... when this first hit I was like - oh yeah I will get that vaccination. everyone had it when I was a kid. But then you start reading about it and you can see why they stopped giving it. At the time (in 2002) they called it the most dangerous vaccine on earth!

The minute that virus got on a plane - the world became fucked. Last night there are something like over 900 cases in 30! countries.

When this first hit, all the virologists I follow said - either the virus has changed or we have changed. I think it might be both. And I don't think I am vaccinated. I would have been too young. If school didn't force the vaccination I didn't get it. We weren't anti vax. We were poor.

51% of people voted for this.

I haven't really been bitching about the Biden Administration because... I'm sort of enjoying it. Not the policies, but I think it's only fitting that he will die on the hills he created. His green energy policies can't really be fudged right now. And I love that to death.

So... I guess... let them eat cake?

Also.. this is the most expensive gas I know of. I thought I would run into some really pricey ones on my trip North, but gas is actually really reasonable up there. Comparatively.

Also... China opened yesterday so we get to see how fun this gets.
