Do we need another Manhatttan Project to fight the pandemic threat?

With the wreckage just beginning to be felt in the western world from the reality of the Covid-19 virus sweeping through communities we need to take a hard look at our response to this type of enemy.

Yes, viruses and disease are old enemies, but ones that have the potential to become much deadlier over time. As a matter of fact time is on our enemy’s side, not ours.

Unless. . . . we get better at fighting them.

Take a look at the article From Seth Berkley at Science Journal.

So I hope you at least glanced through the article. The bottom line is, there are some threats that are so sure that they become an existential threat to us all. If we (and by we, I mean humanity) want to keep on keeping on, we need to face the threat head on.

If you do a minimal amount of research you’ll find that the Covid-19 is not a one off phenomena. It’s not a question of if. It’s simply a question of when.

There will come others and each one has unknown destructive potential ranging from mild to much worse than we see with Covid-19.

My advice is just this:

Stay well and take this time to reflect on what we should do in the face of an enemy we can’t see except by observing the damage it leaves in it’s path. And if it seems like the thing to do, pick up a phone and call your congressional rep. or Senator. Let them know what you want to see done for the sake of those who will come after us.

Thanks for reading.


My Covid-19 Rant

I just cant keep my mouth shut. Here’s a quote for ya.

The grim reality is that, for the elderly, COVID-19 is an almost perfect killing machine.”

The above quote was just plastered on ABC World News Tonight as they breathlessly ushered in a new wave of fear about this latest viral scare. They were quoting a fellow named Mark Parkinson. He’s a Democrat, A Liberal, and Nursing home Czar. He’s a businessman and a politician. Oh yeah, he was the Governor of Kansas. He left the Republican party (1990-2006) and became a Democrat in 2006 to get close to the Governor’s office. To my knowledge he’s never spent a day in medical school.

Agenda anyone? The boy is not a Doctor. He’s not an epidemiologist, Never worked for the CDC. Just another dude with an agenda that he thinks gives him permission to utter terror to the news media. I am so disgusted with this type of fearmongering.

This virus is DESTROYED by soap and water. It’s LIPID based. It will dissolve on a molecular basis when hit with soap and warm water.

If you would like a little real perspective please, please read the article I’ve linked here. You will be glad you did. And for God’s sake, will someone please tell David Muir to stop scaring folks for money.
