SOCIAL DISTANCING

You know, Tubularsock has been through a lot in his existence, to date, on this fucking globe we call earth that reminds you that gravity rules every fucking time you fall on your ass, if you’re lucky, or your face if you’re not.

Tubularsock grew up in a small town where most of the town was a relative of Tubularsock’s or a close friend of a relative of Tubularsock’s.

So hugging and kissing was what they all seemed to do as a greeting and the blind ones would run they hands over Tubularsock’s face in able to “see”!

Or that is the explanation that was given!

As luck would have it for Tubularsock the time came to leave the town and move to San Francisco ……………… Saints be praised!

BUT, Oh Shit!

It was the ’60’s where hugging and kissing fucking complete strangers was the acceptable greeting! WTF?

None the less, Tubularsock survived and this too passed. Saints be praised!

All went well until 2012 when Tubularsock got involved, by no fault of his own, in the fringe theater world and DAMN, hugging and kissing AGAIN! Often with total strangers!

What the hell? Who would have known?

But then, count your blessings ……….. the Hallelujah Moment!

THE CORONAVIRUS!

Now, six foot spacing between people ……….. Tubularsock can finally relax.

Saints be praised!

BEWARE, TRUMPATITIS!

 

One of the major signs of the deadly Trumpatitis is having the ability to bungle your job in huge and mind boggling ways and not being able to identify the problem while looking directly in the mirror!

On January 11th the first non travel case of Covid-19 was diagnosed in the U.S. and the Chinese Government sent out to the world the genome of the Covid-19 virus.

Within a week of that posting the Germans had produced the first diagnostic test for the disease.

By the end of February, the World Health Organization had shipped tests to almost sixty countries.

Yet the Trump Administration refused the WHO test and waited for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to produce its own test.

THIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST FAILURES OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO SLOW THE VIRUS IN THE U.S., according to vital-disease experts both within and without the Administration’s health agencies.

But hey ………. wayyyyyyyyyy before that, in April 2018, Dump’s Administration removed Tom Bossert along with his epidemic team from the Department Homeland Security and a month later reassigned Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer and dissolved and shut down the entire global health security unit that was part of the National Security Council.

And surprise surprise, neither of the epidemic teams were replaced!

When Dump took office he inherited from Obummer a large and extremely capable group of disease prevention experts which helped guide Obummer through THREE epidemic/pandemic during his time in office.

Dump squandered this opportunity along with many others because of his petty little juvenile ego and has once again caused harm to a great number ……… pathetic, bungling, idiotic, stupid sad little man.

But why stop there?

Dump has been pushing for a 19% budget cut for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ….. the agency currently tasked with preparing and responding to all outbreaks and serious health threats to our country.

As well as a 10% cut to “public health scientific services”, a 3% cut to “public health preparedness and response” and a 7% cut to global health programs.

And this is the guy who is running the show?

Tubularsock feels colloquially ………. he’s full of SHIT!
