The Morning Report - 3/23/20


Good morning, kids. A new week and the nation remains in a bizarre state of limbo courtesy of the Chinese communists who inflicted, unwittingly or otherwise, a viral contagion upon us and the world. As a New York City resident, I've always wished I didn't have to endure the incessant din of street noise, traffic and sirens that although one grows accustomed to, nevertheless finds irritating. I guess now I'm getting my wish, only in Monkey's Paw fashion. To put it mildly, the silence is extremely unsettling. And while I'm free to leave my apartment to relieve cabin fever, there's nowhere to go to. Streets are deserted, traffic is virtually nonexistent and the people you encounter seem to be walking around in a daze. I smile and nod, or say hello, even sing or whistle a few bars of an upbeat tune (which is something I normally do anyway). Maybe it helps, if not the passersby then at least me in that moment. Forget the medical aspects of this Chinese coronavirus. The long-term effects on our collective psyche are going to be something we'll be reckoning with well into the future.

Anyway, I've really not got much more to say on this that I have not expressed over the past week or so since this plague of fear of the unknown, exacerbated and in my view instigated by the Democrat-Media Complex fell on us like a pall. Whatever natural consequences to our health and well-being we have to deal with (and for me, I am still highly skeptical of the real health risks compared with flu and other similar viral outbreaks of the recent and distant past) what the latter have done, and continue to do to exploit this crisis for their own political gain is beyond criminal; it's pure evil.

Let's unpack the links, because if I add anything more to my declamation, Ace will no doubt fire my ass just before I get a visit from the FBI.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.
