There is a lot going on in the United States.
There is Trump as always, being the bigoted, racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, unintelligent, narcissistic dick that he is.
There is the Republican Party, who are greedy, corporatist, xenophobic, conservative capitalists, who have been allowed to run amok.
There is the Democratic Party, who are greedy, corporatist, xenophobic, conservative capitalists, who feign progressive humanism.
There are the militarized police, who are deputized thugs. The only true thugs in this country.
Institutional racism. That’s a whole other post.
Karens. Beckys. That’s a whole other post, as well.
But above all these. The great equalizer that is still pervasive, persistent and spreading because the human animal is dumb as fuck…
Oh, it’s still out there people. It hasn’t gone away. It didn’t just disappear like that bullshit Trump was talking; and Kenneth Copeland didn’t blow it away with the power of God.
This virus doesn’t care about our problems.
It doesn’t care about our strife; political abuses, social abuses or our dumbass political and justice system.
Any of us can get infected and die. It doesn’t matter if it’s the poorest of us, who can’t get tested or to a hospital, or the richest of us, who can afford insurance and ventilators.
This virus cannot be bought with cash, donations, bribes or superPACs.
The country is slowly opening back up.
It will kill the so-called least of us first. The ones who have to go out and work for a living every day to stay afloat.
But quite contrary to Reaganomics; the effects of this will not trickle down, it will trickle up.
Maybe all of these decisions makers, who are far past their prime, will bear the burdens of their greed-laced decisions, and meet Covid-19 face-to-face.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
