My First Temp Taking

I visited my local Kaiser Hospital this afternoon to pick up my prescription and as I approached the entrance I am greeted by a row of portable sinks to wash my hands before entering the hospital. Having done that I continued into the hospital entrance where I was greeted by a large fella in hospital garb whio asked me had I experienced any flu like symptoms. Subsequent to my responding with an answer of “no” he advised me he was going to take my temperature. As I was in the process of removing my pants, my temp taking gent was frantically stopping me asking me to remove my motorcycle helmet. (Hey, he didn’t specify where he wanted to take my temp at. I just assumed . . .)

Upon removing my helmet, he draws this small gun from I don’t even know and aims it square at my forehead, and I freeze. A moment later he smiles and says “perfectly normal.”

Wtf, perfectly normal my ass! I just wet myself . . . PERFECTLY NORMAL!

Have you yet to enjoy having your temperature taken to demonstrate if you are infected with the corona-virus or not? It’s not nearly as scary as I play it up to have been. And it is comforting to know that at the time my temperature taken I was not believed to be infected. But, then I ventured into the hospital. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE IN HOSPITALS? They have SICK people in hospitals, not just one or two either. They have an overabundance of people suffering from one ailment or another, cared for by another overabundance of medical folks that are breathing the same air as those people that is sick. Shit, I know if some of that crap jumps on me, at my age I’m gonna die.

Well if I gotta go . . . ‘Mr Pharmacist? Might I have a bottle of those little blue pills please? You see, if I gotta go I prefer it be while suffering from the adverse 4 hour reaction . . . Is 40 of these enough? What do you mean, there’s no pheromones in these to make me more attractive to women?

Well as long as these medical folks have these funny little guns, I know where to stop by for my temperature to be taken to see If the corona-virus has got me or not. Today, in a whole bunch of America a lot of people are concerned about the possibility of becoming infected with the corona-virus. One of the primary symptoms of Covid-19 (corona-virus) is the infected person having a fever. Well if I don’t have a fever, but do have 40 of these little blue pills . . .

Please take the Corona-Virus seriously. Wash your hands, wear a mask, and watch social distancing, please! If you are sick, stay home and call the hospital for instructions on what you should do. And, DO NOT go out running around passing the virus around to everyone. The only thing worse than catching the Corona-Virus, is catching it from some dip-shit that neglects the cautions from the virus like it doesn’t matter.

Keep in mind, that you can have the corona-virus and while showing no symptoms yourself can infect others. This means that while you don’t think it true, you can have the virus and kill others without even knowing it. Nothing about this is cool. Let’s stop this virus so we can be rid of these fucking face masks. I wear glasses and spend most my day trying to look through a fog, it SUCKS! Besides, if it wasn’t for TV, I’ve probably forgotten what a beautiful woman looks like. Hey don’t blame me if I cannot remember your face before the mask. It would help though . . . if you were not wearing a mask with jaws of a beast of some sort!

Damn! Did anybody have any idea that the masks could impact the effectiveness of these little blue pills? LET’s STOP THIS VIRUS!


Everybody get in line, thats it. You guys in the back, c’mon get in line. We would expect lot’s of people joining just because we are tired of living this pandemic.

You simply add your data to their website and wait for them to respond. I’ll do it just to see if our Government is using vacuum technology to gather information by lacing the vaccine with other devices. It sounds a little far-fetched until you realize that we already chip our children and pets. That and banking by a chip embedded under your skin. Think about it, all you would need is chip writer and some “hacker” skills and you could re-write your spouse. . .

Anyway, they are seeking new people to work with them testing vaccines. It doesn’t pay well But it is an opportunity to serve your community.

Why Is There Poverty In America?

I know, what kind of question is that? Everybody knows there’s some that have and others that don’t but why is there some that got nothing? Our current pandemic has opened my eyes to our governments failure to do for their citizens.

Billions and billions more has been handed out to America to stimulate the economy and provide for loss of incomes, but that doesn’t give everyone some form of income to survive on. If you don’t qualify for unemployment, all the government gives you is the $1200.00 stimulus check. In the San Francisco  Bay Area that wont house and feed your pet. Damn sure won’t pay the rent and feed a family. So how is a person supposed to survive this pandemic financially?

The Government gave out billions of dollars in stimulus checks, millions of which was paid to all sorts of people that did not qualify for such payment. Where did the government get this money. And, what good did it do? It was inadequate to provide any real support for a lot of America. Mortgages, rents, loans for cars, and all the other bills the average American pays are not being paid. You don’t think that the Banks and other Lenders are just going to forgive arrearages, do you? Any day now folks are going to be greeted by someone coming to their door to collect or relieve you of the applicable property. Would an estimate of 50% of America having a bad credit score be unexpected?

Why? Why isn’t the Government stepping up to the plate and providing a livable income for every citizen in the United States? The idea of a basic universal income seems to be an answer to a lot of people in need of income. If I understand how this would work, it would call for the Government to pay everyone a basic income amount. People could make additional income by employment regardless of this Government payment. But those not employed and not eligible for  other benefit or payment would still have an income to survive on. Presently our politicians are trying to find a way to put more money in the People’s hands, possibly by a second $1200.00 stimulus check, which does not even provide for housing of even the poverty level of yesterday and is a ridiculous amount of Government provided support to get America back on it’s feet and save our economy from collapse.     

Nobody in America has not suffered due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. We neither started this pandemic nor wanted it in the first place. We are all victims of the negligence of some other country. Why isn’t our Government sending a bill to that government for the damage caused here? With over 100,000 dead and many more than that suffered sickness because of it, why isn’t our government seeking some form of payment from the responsible government for the suffering caused America? It is simply not right that most of America will continue to suffer financially without those responsible being held responsible for their negligence.

As America suffers the losses created by the pandemic, more and more people are joining our Homeless Encampments, our roving Tent Cities, and Motorhome Convoys which demonstrates how rapidly we are losing family after family to below poverty level status. This is unacceptable for this great country, and you will not save our economy by allowing the growth of poverty stricken to continue to grow. Our Government has the ability to save us from our fall to poverty and it sure would be nice if they got off their collective asses and did something about it while we still have a chance to survive.
