All Hail the Morons!

It’s ‘Super Tuesday’ here in the States, which means the corporate media takes a bit of the day off from their campaign of scaring the bejesus out of you over a virus, and instead turns their attention to scaring the bejesus out of you by reporting the shitf**kery that is politics in America.

All hail the morons!

Either instilling doubts in your pretty little head that you might meet your maker sooner rather than later if you, well, basically breathe – to boring your arse toward another kind of premature death by reporting on political dung, the corporate morons always deliver.

All hail the morons!

But not to worry, there are plenty of corporate shills and shysters to go around, spreading about their unique brand of skunk stench:

Ex-CDC head Tom Frieden says kids may be secret coronavirus carriers – via NYpost.com

The ex-director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that the deadly coronavirus may be “impossible” to contain — and that kids may be secret carriers of the disease.

Ah, but there’s more watery diarrhea from the morons:

Tensions rise as US death toll from coronavirus reaches 9 – via AP.com

SEATTLE (AP) — Tensions over how to contain the coronavirus escalated Tuesday in the United States as the death toll climbed to nine and lawmakers expressed doubts about the government’s ability to ramp up testing fast enough to deal with the crisis.

All of the deaths have occurred in Washington state, and most were residents of a nursing home in suburban Seattle. The number of infections in the U.S. overall climbed past 100, scattered across at least 15 states, with 27 cases in Washington alone.

“What is happening now in the United States may be the beginning of what is happening abroad,” said Dr. Nancy Messonnier of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, noting that in China, where the outbreak began more than two months ago, older and sicker people are about twice as likely to become seriously ill as those who are younger and healthier. Most cases have been mild.

Way to go, AP!  Apparently no f**ks are given about the 83,000+ seasonal flu deaths from just this year alone. Great reporting!

All hail the morons!

So, it’s either the innocents of youth, or the innocents of the elderly who are either carrying or suffering:

Coronavirus – Quarantined nursing home residents “held hostage in a petri dish,”, relative says – via CBSnews.com

Health officials have focused in on a cluster of conronavirus infections inside a nursing home outside of Seattle. Family members of LifeCare Center’s elderly residents told CBS News their loved ones are being isolated in their rooms and their temperatures monitored daily, but they are concerned those showing symptoms will not be tested or hospitalized until critically ill.

The U.S.’s six coronavirus deaths have all been reported in Washington state. Officials in Washington’s King County, where the nursing home is located, revealed plans to buy a motel and set up modular units to house coronavirus patients requiring isolation.

King County Public Health Officer Jeff Duchin said they “expect the number of cases will continue to increase in the coming days and weeks.”

Carmen Gray, whose mother Susan Haley is under quarantine at the nursing home, told CBS News’ Jonathan Vigliotti that she had asked to get her mother tested for the virus.

Gray said they told her that Haley “did not meet the criteria at this time.”

“They’re being held hostage in a petri dish,” she said.

Our question…how many viruses are there on Mother Earth?

Well, no need to reach further up one’s arse for the answer…we have the NY Times to provide enlightenment:

Trillions Upon Trillions of Viruses Fall From the Sky Each Day – NYTimes.com

High in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Spain, an international team of researchers set out four buckets to gather a shower of viruses falling from the sky.

Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet’s weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Very little is known about this realm, and that’s why the number of deposited viruses stunned the team in Spain. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet.

And the dickheads in the media have the apathetic’s worrying about just one of the trillions.

Such proper f**kery of us all.

How many sacrifices from the gods of f**kery must we endure?

Evidently, as many as our apathetic arse’s put up with, which is most entirely equal to the number of lies, half-truth’s and insanity that the corporate and political morons offer up each day that we continue to swallow.

All hail the morons!
