I haven’t been posting because my commenters are such morons

The situation in Italy shows that I was right about everything. They already have more than 6,000 deaths, and even though deaths have declined two days in a row, I think it’s inevitable that the total number of deaths will at least double within two to three weeks.

Now the morons will then say “but that’s about the same number of people who die each year from the flu.” Well the only reason the number of deaths will have been the same as the flu (for the entire year of flu) is because THEY SHUT THE DAMN COUNTRY DOWN TO STOP IT. Without shutting anything down and life going on as normal, total deaths would have climbed and climbed and climbed into the hundreds of thousands.

But that’s unlikely to happen because once the number of deaths reaches a certain point, people say OH SHIT, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING. So something gets done, but too late. Better to be proactive than reactive.

Sadly, the U.S. is not proactive at all, we are totally reactive. Some states are enforcing social distancing, but there are other states that are ignoring it, and they are just going to be breeding grounds to re-infect the states that do a good job with social distancing. There’s no leadership from the White House to make the entire country SHUT THE FUCK DOWN.

So I fear that the U.S. is fucked worse than any other country except maybe for Iran. People just don’t know it yet.
