Strange Days Indeed
COVID-19: Welcome to the New Dark Ages
The response by the government to COVID-19
will turn America into a third world country in short order. Destroying the economy, throwing millions of people out of work, creating air money and thus inflation, and draconian measures to head off a virus that kills far less than the ordinary flu will have serious and unprecedented ramifications.
The veneer of civilization will dissolve in short order. If practically everyone is ordered by the state to “shelter in place,” there will be few people left to deliver—let alone produce—food and other necessities. Within the first few days of this exaggerated “new plague,” frantic citizens besieged the stores, striping the shelves of toilet paper, canned goods, and bread. This is happening as a result of the corporate media hammering out an apocalyptic message nonstop.
Lockdown Insanity Will Destroy Britain
The clown show of Britain’s lockdown is dragging our lives down into a bottomless pit of destroyed businesses, shattered lives, unemployment and unpayable debt. All day, every day we are subject to a a babble of quacking voices from the “authorities” , although they only ever have three things to say.
1. Death is here, spiralling, soaring, death tolls, infection tolls, more death and yet more.
2. Reduce your life to a wretched, shambling imprisonment. Obey every order and shut up.
3. Give my department huge sums of money for “more, vital, essential —” (fill in your wish).
There are three important points to make in reply…

Coronavirus Lockdown Is Taking A Toll On Mental Health, Especially Among Women, Study Finds
The pandemic has reached its tentacles into just about every area of life at this point. Far from wreaking just medical havoc, it’s also affected many other realms—the economy, likely for some time to come, and mental health, as many have felt already. For those who have lost their jobs, the psychological devastation is obvious. For those who are simply stuck indoors, the effects may be less severe, but not insignificant—particularly if mental health problems already existed.
A new report by the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that the mental health burden is increasing for just about everyone. In a mid-March poll, 32% of people polled said that worry and stress about coronavirus had a negative impact on their mental health. Two weeks later in late March, this number had risen to 45%.
Blame Trump for black women being obese, professor says
A New Jersey professor suggested on a TV program that racism and President Donald Trump’s policies are responsible for black female obesity.

Many field hospitals went largely unused, will be shut down
Gleaming new tent hospitals sit empty on two suburban New York college campuses, never having treated a single coronavirus patient. Convention centers that were turned into temporary hospitals in other cities went mostly unused. And a Navy hospital ship that offered help in Manhattan is soon to depart.
When virus infections slowed down or fell short of worst-case predictions, the globe was left dotted with dozens of barely used or unused field hospitals. Some public officials say that’s a good problem to have — despite spending potentially billions of dollars to erect the care centers — because it’s a sign the deadly disease was not nearly as cataclysmic as it might have been.
