Tags: flumob

Flu Mob is an international apolitical network of people acting together to eradicate COVID19 in our communities.

We have three principles:

Protect the uninfected

Disseminate the knowledge and skills necessary for as many people as possible to remain uninfected until a cure, or vaccine, is discovered.

Serve the infected

Respect the human rights of infected people in our communities and provide the services necessary for their recovery.

Accelerate positive change

By normalizing new social behaviors that combat the coronavirus, we have an opportunity for the positive transformation of society, such as, for example, decreasing global carbon emissions.

I think the majority of people will do the right thing. Will the government? Other countries are freezing rent and mortgages. This makes sense so restaurants and businesses and people can self-quarantine to keep the virus under control and when all is said and done they can re-open the doors instead of going under. As well as people won't be homeless. The banks over the last decade have been gifted bail outs and tax breaks and on it's time for them to pay it forward to the hard-working people of this nation. This one issue will decide the outcome of our economy and people for decades to come. We must push for freezing mortgages and rent as other countries in Europe have.

A moratorium on student loan payments, too, would be helpful. And, no evictions, no foreclosures, etc during this period.

COVID-19 is but the latest one of the many ill derivatives of the sunball-playing Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Calling the marauding virus as the CP/C virus (i.e. the Communist Party over China virus) will be more accurate. Keeping on correcting the overflowing symptoms while ignoring the source is futile.

Finish the Great Walls of China to build a solid coffin for the Chinese Communist Party in order to safeguard the World from recurrent replays of these pandemics. According to the warrior code of China and Japan later on (as Bushido admired by Teddy Roosevelt,) it's more of an honor to die on a battlefield than in a sick bed. Peace takes perseverance to build and yes, wars must be fought to protect our homeland. The greatest war brought the longest peace until we all forgot why we'd fought it. There and then with our "balls { sorry, girls, "war, war, war," is all boys' eternal obsession, but I assure you that most are really just calling for, "muchas muchas señoritas; vino, vino;" the CCP locks up the expendable, potentially societal-troublemaking balls in the barracks of its armed wing, i.e. the PLA }" we go again.

The whole [facts-recognizing] world now absolutely stands with Hongkongers by clamoring to wear masks [in solidarity to defy the face-recognition technology of a "Communist" puppet, per the wish of the Maniacal Artist: "you can walk on clouds"].

Your reactionary Sinophobia can NOT be allowed to stand here unchallenged, no matter how incoherent your rambling psychobabble is! Or how much U add to it later ... once U have spewed it in the first place! NB: ''The US Had Early Warning Of The New Virus ... BUT it suppressed that information'' - from ...

''Tho' Trump denies responsibility, someone fired USA's Pandemic Response Team in 2018 to cut costs! That absolutely must have contributed to US' clear lack of preparedness for this, once in a lifetime event.'' - from ...

Btw, did we call the 1918/19 Flu Pandemic - "Kansas Flu" & blame the USA?! Get real! We are all in this together! NB ...

Human greed for profits & proteins & the feeding of sheep infected with 'scrapie', to cattle .. which would NEVER have ingested any animal protein, never mind sheep brains & nervous system, was at the heart of the terrible BSE scandal, that had it's earliest manifestation in UK .. where the cattle & dairy industries were decimated. Tho' it manifested elsewhere & was a far less fatal pathogen than COVID19 is - human greed was at the root of BSE for sure. In the current global contagion climate, also consider:

''Partnership for America’s Health Care Future (PAHCF) a major health care industry lobbying group that is stoutly opposed to Medicare for All, launched a multimillion-dollar ad campaign last week to push back against any effort to fix our broken for-profit 'system'.This comes on the heels of the insurance industry's efforts against waiving costs for COVID-19 treatments.''

Absolutely true. I add: the foot-in-mouth disease in Orange-utan started in Queens, NY. { Kings are often frowned upon in America ( except for legacy items ) so lactose-intolerant [drama] Queens who drink too much milk must suffice. Sanders was born in Kings borough so he was said to be born in Brokeland, NY, after the British had taken it from the Dutch. } I've just found a great playlist from a commentator for the Cheatos-in-Chief to follow ( yes, it was originally made for the military ) :

  1. Fuck up.
  2. Claim your fuck up was a [success].
  3. Give medals to the people who fucked up or [were ordered] to fuck up
  4. When evidence surfaces that it wasn´t a sucess, claim the other side was at fault.

Whoretown School of Affaires Masturb-de-Greed of E-duc-ation is thereby put to good usage.

CP/C coronavirus will stay in the U.S. as many other invasive species have already done. There was paleobiological evidence showing that there were ancestors of common modern contagious diseases which had co-evolved with human beings to become benign. There are evolutionary reasons for why human health habits can tame the viral or bacterial genomes by curtailing the diseases' spread. The high-death-rate killer diseases' germs tend to kill themselves quickly when they kill their human hosts once most human hosts adopt healthier habits minimizing the spread of the germs to new hosts. For example, cholera strains in the strong-health-defense areas tend to be much more benign than those strains in the weak-health-defense areas.

It looks like Orange-utan wants to grant political asylum to the CP/C virus with a path to U.S. citizenship beginning with its permanent residency. It's undoubtedly pro-immigrant. Take out the science and prey ! Oops, it's a grenade ! Don't pull away its safety pin or "Gee, it's too bad." Hint: the CP/C virus must first be tamed and assimilated by U.S. health and sanitary culture. It's far better to overreact than under-react when dealing with a chain reaction: collect 30% interest a day for growing CP/C virus cases. If a 15% annual interest rate loan was so hard to pay off using casino cashflow without going bankrupt, 30% a day is shooting at bankruptcy straight-on unless that rate is much lowered by infection control and prevention. Even the U.S. with its vast resources ( of course, SARS has been around since 2003, some 17 years ago so the U.S. could have developed a vaccine effective against SARS and its evil relative { Hong Kong had pegged it at 80% like SARS with lower death rate but more CONTAGIOUS and even so during its asymptomatic period after the initial infection }, the CP/C virus, rampaging now, had the U.S. had long-term trans-administration vision and perseverance--it's not just a n==g== disease, it's a Homo sapiens sapiens disease ) cannot go against a compound-interest-rate-at-30%-a-day growth curve and hold its own.

Namaste works to halt the spread of contact-transmitted germs but Communions with the physical sharing doesn't. India's caste system had an origin in past conquests to keep the native population oriented towards their "next life" and away from making trouble for the conquerors--absolutely ingenious !

Did you learn of how much we had advanced in both Biology and Global Information Network for global communication since 1918? A Michael-Bloomberg-endowed institute at Johns Hopkins University definitively got and published on January 2nd, 2020, leaked information about Wuhan outbreak that the CCP had tried to suppress.

Recent decades' breakthrough computational/genomic technologies can now sequence the retroviral RNA sequence of this CP/C retrovirus very quickly (this was most probably done the earliest in CHINA's Hong Kong, which has one of the best, if not the best, healthcare system in Asia.) The result was that this mysterious pneumonia illness has a virus which is largely similar to the 2003 SARS virus. The CCP was censoring information about the Wuhan outbreak by arresting people or making them sign NDAs. The CCP delayed the world's response to this marauding virus and it killed and will continue to kill many innocent people. We must kill the source of this suppression. Of course, April 1st is coming soon and the virus will "go away, like a miracle" because we "prey" !

Actually, the earth is being saved, believe it or not, thanks to Hong Kong's unique position in China so it had caught the disease early and yet it was free to speak and publish about it, probably to the dismay of the CCP.

I've never said that we're not in this mass-murderous performance together because we share more than 99.9% of our modern-human genomes in common. Race was revealed as having no deep-down biological basis. It's why I don't subscribe to racial supremacy. Nearly identical clones can't be racially supreme to each other because race doesn't exist except as a cultural idea ( essentially similar to Greek mythological tales--well, I was surely amused by the 99.44%-pure-ivory-soap Olympian opera but I no longer seek Zeus because he had already given me and others including you his lightning bolts to wield; let Zeus have a fucking good time conjugating with Hera.)

Remember that there's a difference between Sinophobia and CCPphobia. You may understand it better if you know the difference between Jewphobia and Israelphobia, as I guess that you know about Bernie's thinking and can make a clear distinction there. I'm perfectly fine with Bernie becoming our President although he's a Brooklyn/Vermont Jew. I was also fine with Mike Bloomberg's having assumed mayorship ( he definitely cares about public health--it's his endowment that could've allowed the U.S. to respond early to this CP/C attack but the time was lost to the profit-making-at-any-cost motive yet again ) despite his obvious Jewishness ( we've got our beloved screwball of Edward I. Koch to see the City of New York through the hellish years and he was a Jew, too ! { he was first and foremost, though, a New Yorker }.)

I have little confidence in Joe Biden in his going against the CCP ( he was there in power all along and acquiesced/kowtowed to the CCP to get us to where we are in the U.S.) so if Bernie's out, I want Trump 2040 !

Here's excellent health-related advice from a Democratic Senator from Arizona, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., : https://mobile.twitter.com/kyrstensinema/status/1241827416198254593

Donald Trump needs to protect the healthcare workers regardless of political inclination or affliation. If they become infected, most others can join them in Trumpanzian Hell. There's no non-Satan hotel business to be run there but our Second Amendment will still apply.

Does this bozo know that there's a law regarding wartime production in the U.S.? The British requisitioned a ship called Empire Haven and later on sent it to rescue the drowning/shipwrecked Italian POWs from the U-boat-sunk British merchant ship Laconia turned troop carrier.

"Gee, it's too bad." Who'll say that about Orange-utan when it gets sick? Our troops worked with the Cubans and largely defended the Americas from the Ebola epidemic. Cuba built up a strong healthcare workforce partly due to the U.S.-imposed sanctions upon it and yet the Cubans could still transcend the long-lasting decades-long grudges to work together on common defense.
