What is the most dangerous pathogen in America? It’s not COVID-19. Saturday, Nov 14 2020 

The Covid Storm

“Very much under control.”

COVID-19 is indeed a dangerous pathogen. It has infected millions of Americans and killed hundreds of thousands.

But, we are told, there will be, in the next few months, a vaccine that has a 90% ability to prevent infection or at least reduce its mortality rate.

But it is not America’s most dangerous pathogen. That title goes to the Indoctrinated TrumpBot.

The Indoctrinated TrumpBot (ITB) has no known or prospective cure. It is completely immune to Truth, Facts, And Logic (TFAL).

Because its victims and carriers have evolved to mimic the uninfected human form, they look exactly like your crazy uncle or your nutty next-door neighbor.

So, the disease is hard to identify until the victim opens his or her mouth, at which time he will spout Easily Disproven, Crazy Conspiracy Theories (EDCCT).

The ITB causes one primary, visible symptom: It forces the victim to believe, say, and act exactly the way Donald J. Trump tells it to.

The Indoctrinated TrumpBot (ITB) victim loses his common sense. The victim no longer can read normal newspapers and magazines, nor listen to National Public Radio (NPR), nor watch Public Broadcasting System (PBS).

Instead, the ITB victim gets his information from three primary sources: TrumpTweets (TT), the Wall Street Journal, and Fox News, the latter two of which are owned by the notorious Rupert Murdoch. (Fox News seems to have fallen into disfavor, of late, for committing the crime, on rare occasions, of Telling The Truth (TTT).

For some Indoctrinated Trump Bot victims, Fox News has been supplanted by One America Network (OAN), which never has been known for Telling The Truth (TTT).

To ITB-infected people, lack of evidence about corruption serves as proof that someone is hiding the corruption for which there is no evidence.

Among the Easily Disproven, Crazy Conspiracy Theories (EDCCT) spouting from Indoctrinated TrumpBot (ITB) victims mouths are:Central Park Five exonerees slam Trump's 'due process' remark

1. Barack Obama is not an American Citizen.
2. Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals
3. The Left May Have Given Trump COVID-19 Through His Debate Mic
4. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has committed treason and so must be kidnapped.
5. Political opponents of President Donald J. Trump are training assassination “hit squads”
6. Vaccines cause autism.
7. The “Central Park Five” theory (5 innocent black children for whom Trump urged the death penalty).
6. QAnon, which claims a group of Satan-worshipping left-wing pedophiles is kidnapping and eating children.
7. Pizzagate, which claimed Democrats were holding child sex slaves in the basement of a Pizza parlor.

and many, many, many seen here. 

The strange fact of Indoctrinated TrumpBotism  (ITB) is that the crazier, more far-fetched a conspiracy theory is, the more ITB victims will believe it.

For instance, no normal, uninfected human being would trust the nuttiness of QAnon. the outlandishness of Pizzagate, or the incessant lying of Donald J. Trump, but to ITB victims it all seems perfectly credible.

In addition to Easily Disproven, Crazy Conspiracy Theories (EDCCT), Indoctrinated TrumpBot (ITB) victims feel required to disseminate Trump’s Big Lies (TBL), which include:
1. I will build a big, beautiful wall
2. Mexico will pay for it.
3. Many TBL about COVID, including:

a. “The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA.”
b. “Because of all we’ve done, the risk to the American people remains very low.”
c. “It’s going to disappear. One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”
d. “We’re very close to a vaccine and we’re very close to therapeutics, really good therapeutics. But even without that, I don’t like to talk about that because it’s fading away.” (July 17th)
e. “Maybe (face masks) are great and maybe they’re just good. Maybe they’re not so good.”
f. “Supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light … and then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that too.”
g. “Now we have tested almost 40 million people. By so doing, we show cases, 99% of which are totally harmless.”

4. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.”
5. “Our numbers started miraculously getting whittled away in secret.”
6. “If you count the legal votes, I easily win.”
7. “(Mail-in voting) is a corrupt system and it makes people corrupt.”

Victims of Indoctrinated TrumpBotism

Many normal people attempt to help cure Indoctrinated TrumpBot (ITB) victims by fruitlessly having conversations using Truth, Facts, And Logic (TFAL).

Sadly, they will be met with glazed eyes or angry responses. ITB victims do not accept facts over Trump’s Big Lies (TBL), or science as having more credibility than Trump-Inspired Rumors (TIR).

ITB-infected people prefer to associate with other ITB-infected people. That helps them answer all questions in lockstep, according to Donald J. Trump’s latest declarations (which often disagree with Donald J. Trump’s previous declarations, a fact that does not bother those infected with ITB).

Self-reinforcing, circular thinking is a prime symptom of ITB.

Sadly, there is no cure for ITB. Like COVID-19, it is a “forever” disease, until Trump dies, at which time ITB victims are expected to search for a new cult leader — perhaps Steve Bannon?

Even as this post is being written, and the election is almost two weeks behind us, with Donald J. Trump having lost by more than four million popular votes and more than 50 electoral votes, a Trump rally is set for Washington DC, presumably to protest the results of the election.

The idea is that if people march angrily, America’s voters can be ignored for no factual reasons, and America then can be led by angry gangs rather than by democracy.

This is known as “patriotism.”

The Indoctrinated TrumpBot-infected marchers have no facts, only Donald J. Trump’s unproven and disproven claims. But that is sufficient for the  (ITB) victims to march about, making fools of themselves while doing American democracy grievous harm.

Without a cure, you only can try to protect yourself from acquiring the infection. Read newspapers other than the Wall Street Journal or Breitbart. Watch TV News other than Fox commentators Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham et al.

Contact your Cowardly GOP Congressperson (CGC), and tell him/her you have not been infected and don’t want to be, so if they expect your vote in the future, start using Truth, Facts, And Logic (TFAL) today.

When an ITB-infected victim begins to spout a Trump Big Lie (TLB), begin to laugh uproariously, and exclaim, “Oh, my God, Do you really believe that?”

You won’t cure the disease, but because Indoctrinated TrumpBotism is the most dangerous disease in America, at least you can help prevent the victim from spreading it.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

  1. Eliminate FICA
  2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
  3. Social Security for all or a reverse income tax
  4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
  5. Salary for attending school
  6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
  7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 
  8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
  9. Federal ownership of all banks
  10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

MONETARY SOVEREIGNTY

The President’s speech you so desperately long to hear Friday, Nov 6 2020 

This is the President’s speech you so desperately wish to hear:

Ladies and gentlemen of Congress and the Supreme Court, why did you come here? Most of us could have done better financially in the private sector, but you chose to come here. Why?

Do you remember when you first decided to enter public service? How idealistic you were. You felt you could, in some way, improve the lives of the people.

You could have been lawyers or doctors, or business leaders, and most of you could have risen to the tops of your professions. Instead, you willingly sacrificed riches to become senators, representatives, and judges. You entered the uncertain world of politics.

Did you do it for the glory? Did you do it for power? Did you do it to get a better table in a restaurant?

No, you — we — did it for the morals. We understood that the fundamental purpose of government is to improve the lives of the people.

People do not form governments for our aggrandizement. The people did not send us here and pay our salaries so we can stand on a dais and bask in the warmth of their cheering. The people did not send us here to defeat the other party in never-ending, useless wars.

The people sent you here — and you came here — to make their lives better. The people sent you here to answer just three questions.

What can I do for the people?

What can I do for America?

What can I do for the world?

Do you remember those optimistic days? How exciting they were. How good it felt to believe that in some small — or perhaps not so small — way, you could make a positive difference. Your life could have a special meaning beyond just your coming and your leaving — beyond merely dust to dust.

Your legacy could be not that you defeated the other side, but that you made America and the world a better place for those less powerful than you. You believed in the words on the Statue of Liberty:

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Yes, we were the golden door. The shining city on a hill. America.

And then you came to Washington. And the jaded ones told you to throw away your idealism. Throw away your compassion. Throw away your morals. They told you — they told all of us — our life was to be a tiny, obedient cog in a vast machine. They told us to answer just three questions:

What is best for the President? What is best for my party? What is best for me?

And so, like those tiny, obedient cogs in the vast machine, we now march in lockstep.

Is that why you came here — to be just a reliable, obedient vote?

Today, the nation has been divided by lies and hatred. Every day some new corruption, some new outrage, some new anger. Even our precious election is riven by lies and threats and anger.

Look back now at what we have lost. Our beautiful dream, our American dream.

Does it bother you, as it bothers me, that almost every question put before Congress is answered in exactly the same way, with a hundred percent — or near a hundred percent — of the right answering one, and a hundred percent of the left answering the other way, because it is best for me to vote with the party.

Why are we all so predictable? Can it even be possible that all — ALL — your beliefs and morals are identical to those of the other two hundred people of your party — identical on all questions — and opposing the beliefs of those in the other party?

Is it even possible, that on every question coming before Congress, you are exactly the same as the man or woman sitting next to you, on your side of the aisle?

Is that why you came here? To be nothing more than a rubber stamp for or against? Is that why you gave up an alternative future?

Think back now: When was the turning point in your life? When did what’s best for the people fall out of consideration? When did you stop caring about people and care only about politics?

And if you’re a judge, I ask you this question: When did the law become more important than the people?

When did you lose your compassion for those less fortunate than you? Have you become so cold and heartless that you care more about legal minutia than about the actual fact of human suffering? When did the turn of abstruce phrase become more important than the reality of the human condition? When did clever rejoinder become more important than a child’s life?

And really, ladies and gentlemen, why are you so predictably right-wing or left-wing? How about “people-wing”?

I have been here for many years. I have been as guilty as any of you in losing my way in the endless labyrinth of uncaring big government. I regret those wasted years, when I focused on giving the wrong answers to the wrong questions, simply to go along.

I could have been so much better. I could have done so much more for the people. And though I can’t go back, I can change direction, and try to remember the idealism that first brought me here.

We, few, sitting in this room, control the levers of power. America is the most powerful — financially and militarily — the most powerful nation in history. We truly have the power to make the earth a better place for all humanity, and we certainly, easily have the power to make America a better place for all Americans.

Shall we squander what little time we are given in this world? Shall we squander our power on internecine wars? Is that why you have given so much of your lives, day after day, to win one battle, then to lose the next? Will defeating your neighbor yield a better result than cooperating with, or helping, your neighbor?

Is morality naive?

At one time, the world looked to America for moral leadership. That can be true again. In your heart and your mind, you know right from wrong. You know truth from lies. You know good from bad. You know generosity from selfishness. You know compassion from cruelty. You know love from hatred.

You know these things and the world looks to you and the world knows you know. And the world will follow your lead.

Sometimes, in the short run, evil wins. But evil has no staying power in the hearts of humanity. Evil skulks fearfully in darkness and denial. Righteousness opens its arms to the sunshine of joy and self-respect.

How will we few people in this room be remembered? Will we lie and make excuses. Will we rationalize? Or, will you look back in satisfaction at knowing you have done the right thing for humanity? Will you be proud of the good you have accomplished? What will be the meaning of your life?Helping Hand — Mysteries of Hawai'i

Today we begin our destiny. We can step back from cold, blind politics.

We can do this. Hand in hand, working together we can do this.

We can answer the questions we have been given the power to answer:

What can I do for the people? What can I do for America? What can I do for the world?

We are not just Republicans or Democrats. We are Americans. We are not just Americans, we are human beings.

We can make the world a better place, for ourselves, for our children, and for all the children yet to be born.

Let us begin.

Together.
