The Insanity Chronicles – Episode 16
On this, our sixteenth episode of the Insanity Chronicles, we’ll check out the insanity of merely watching as we speak’s information experiences. Keep in mind, insanity is a state of being mentally ailing, particularly severely, extraordinarily silly conduct, and a state of frenzied or chaotic exercise. Let’s check out information round America.
Out of Baltimore, the Mayor is annoyed with extra gang shootings over the weekend. The Unbiased Sentinel experiences, “Mayor Begs Criminals to Cease Taking pictures, in order that they have Beds for Virus Sufferers.” It is a new Mayor, the earlier one was simply sentenced to jail for corruption. The Mayor says they want the beds for virus sufferers. Maryland has a grand complete of 5 circumstances of coronavirus.
Up the highway in Philadelphia, we study Metropolis Council determined a few distinctive approaches to virus management on this headline out of the Metropolis of Brotherly Love. “Philly Will not Arrest Thieves, Looters, Drug Sellers however Attempt Consuming a Burger in a Restaurant.” It appears petty criminals will go free, however now you can get arrested for consuming in a restaurant. Is not that maddening?
One other hour north and we’re in Brooklyn, New York, the place the District Legal professional is making shoplifting and different crimes authorized. He’s refusing to prosecute low-level crimes in response to… you guessed it, the coronavirus. In a latest Tweet, the ACLU is looking for prisoners to be launched from jails throughout America. They are saying it’ll assist cease the unfold of the virus. Curiously, nobody to this point in jail has examined optimistic for the corona?
Subsequent door in New York Metropolis, Mayor de Blasio warned New Yorkers he might problem an order to shelter in place. California Governor Newsome is making the identical saber-rattling noise whereas asserting he’s contemplating martial regulation. The announcement got here after a complete of 13 deaths attributed, however not confirmed, to be from the virus. Of which over half had been 70 years of age or older with different contributing bodily issues. Is it simply me, or is there some actual, bonafide frenzied and chaotic exercise occurring?
Among the finest ones I’ve learn is that the FBI is curbing on-line inquiries into their system on account of the corona insanity. They need all such requests to be dealt with by mail all through disaster. A query involves thoughts. The World Well being Group is strongly recommending that we use bank cards and debit playing cards as a result of dealing with money passes COVID-19. Would not extra mail within the system be riskier than utilizing on-line providers? To not point out that dealing with mail is extra labor-intensive than letting a pc course of inquiries.
There are heaps we do not know in regards to the coronavirus. Is it lethal? Clearly, to a section of the inhabitants. Is it killing People? As of as we speak, they’re reporting about 150. Are all 150 deaths from the coronavirus? You’ll be able to’t get a straight reply. Did all 150 of the individuals die totally from the virus? The experiences we get means that over half of them died of issues from different bodily maladies that they had earlier than the sickness, and effectively over half are over the age of 70 with many of their 90’s.
Our present charades remind me of a few years in the past within the jungles of Vietnam serving as a Marine. We had been an infantry firm, about 150 Marines, ten or so miles from friendlies establishing our perimeter for the night time. It was within the badlands of the DMZ. Simply earlier than darkish fell our Captain referred to as a giant assembly. He’d gotten phrase from G-2, the means Intelligence Part, that we’d be attacked that night time by a power of 10,000 NVA. He ordered everybody to be on full alert all night time. That meant no sleep after humping the mountains all day.
We felt like most People really feel proper now. Sufficient already. 10,000 of them, 150 of us, who cares. We had two choices. Really, imagine these hills round us in some way held a Division of dangerous guys, or we might roll the cube it was nonsense. Almost each certainly one of us simply went to sleep. That is what most People are doing proper now. There’s something amiss about our present scenario.
Could we wake from this insanity earlier than it is too late. I want you good well being and till subsequent time… have enjoyable, take pleasure in life, and be careful for the insanity amongst us.
