War of Our World

I AM SURE THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON ON THE PLANET THAT HAS PONDERED A STRANGE PARALLEL BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL 1953 MOVIE ENTITLED “WAR OF THE WORLDS” AND THE REALITY IN WHICH WE NOW LIVE. H.G. WELLS WROTE THE ORIGINAL BOOK IN 1898. ORSON WELLS TOOK TO THE AIRWAVES WITH HIS INFAMOUS CBS RADIO BROADCAST IN 1938 AND THE ORIGINAL “WAR OF THE WORLDS” MOVIE WAS RELEASED IN 1953.

IN BRIEF, THE STORY IS… ALIENS FROM ANOTHER PLANET INVADE THE EARTH AND INTEND TO EXTERMINATE THE HUMAN POPULATION AND TAKE EARTH FOR THEMSELVES. THEIR SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY MADE THEM IMPERVIOUS TO THE EARTHS DEFENSES. WHEN EARTH SEEMED DOOMED, AND HOPE WAS ALL BUT GONE, THE ALIENS STARTED TO DIE. THEY DIED BECAUSE OF WHAT WAS REFERRED TO AT THE TIME AS “EXPOSURE TO TERRESTRIAL BACTERIA”. I DOUBT THAT THE TERM ‘VIRUS” EVEN EXISTED IN 1898. MAYBE IT DID BUT I AM TOO LAZY TO LOOK IT UP AND I AM BUSY ADMINISTERING MY 3RD BOTTLE OF HINANO MEDICATION. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE ALIENS HAD NO IMMUNITY TO ALL THE “TERRESTRIAL BACTERIA” IN EARTHS ATMOSPHERE. HOWEVER HUMANITY, OVER COUNTLESS GENERATIONS, DEVELOPED NATURAL IMMUNITIES. MAYBE THE ALIENS DID NOT HAVE A DR. FAUCEY OR A DR. BIRKS AT THEIR DISPOSAL. OR… MAYBE THEY DID HAVE A DR. BIRKS OR A DR. FAUCEY AND MAYBE THE ALIENS WERE FOOLISH AND DID NOT LISTEN TO THEM OR LEARN FROM THEM.

( SOUND FAMILIAR? ) SO HERE WE ARE… STILL ON PLANET EARTH, THAT BIG BLUE MARBLE 122 YEARS AFTER THE ORIGINAL BOOK WAS WRITTEN.

NOW WE HAVE A NEW WAR TO FIGHT AND WE ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR SURVIVAL. WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING WARS WITH EACH OTHER AND KILLING EACH OTHER SINCE THE BEGINNING OF HUMAN HISTORY. SO NOW WE HAVE A COMMON ENEMY THAT THREATENS ALL OF HUMANITY. THAT SHOULD HAVE MOTIVATED COOPERATION WORLD WIDE. THERE ARE MANY COUNTRIES COOPERATING ACROSS THE GLOBE AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS STRETCHED TO IT’S LIMITS. MANY COUNTRIES NEED HELP AND MANY COUNTRIES DO HELP. SO WHAT DOES OUR U.S. FEARLESS LEADER DO ? HE STOPPED ALL FUNDING FROM THE USA TO THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION. HE CALLED COVID-19 A HOAX. ON AND ON AND ON WITH THIS GUY ! RESPECT FOR THE UNITED STATES IS IN DECLINE. DONALD TRUMP IS NOT THE MAN THAT MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT HE WAS. TRUMP IS INCAPABLE OF MANAGING THE PRESIDENCY. NOT ONLY CAN HE NOT DO IT, BUT HE DOES NOT SEEK HELP FROM THE PEOPLE THAT KNOW WHAT CAN AND CAN NOT BE DONE. HE RESENTS PEOPLE THAT KNOW MORE THAN HE KNOWS. SMART PRESIDENTS SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH THE SMARTEST PEOPLE THEY COULD FIND! TRUMP FIRES PEOPLE THAT DISAGREE WITH HIM ! THE COVID-19 VIRUS IS A KILLER. WE NEED TO FIGHT THIS PROBLEM LIKE WE FIGHT A WAR. DONALD TRUMP IS NOT CAPABLE OF BEING A WAR-TIME PRESIDENT. HE ORDERED A DRONE STRIKE ON A SINGLE IRANIAN MILITARY LEADER AND WAR HERO. THE IRANIANS INTERPRETED THE DRONE STRIKE AS A ASSASINATION AND ARGUABLY SO. IRAN ALREADY HATED THE USA AND NOW THEY HATE US EVEN MORE. THAT DRONE STRIKE LED DIRECTLY TO THE RETALIATION MISSILE ATTACK ON A US MILITARY BASE IN IRAQ . THAT ATTACK RESULTED IN MANY SERIOUS CONCUSSION INJURYS OF UNITED STATES MILITARY PERSONNEL. ALL FOR WHAT? DONALD TRUMP STATED THAT HE DID NOT CONSIDER CONCUSSIONS A REAL CASUALTY !!

WE NEED LEADERSHIP THAT CAN FIGHT THIS VIRUS LIKE THE ENEMY THAT IT IS ! WE MUST PROTECT CITIZENS AND WE NEED TO HAVE A NATIONAL POLICY TO FIGHT THIS VIRUS AND WE NEED TO CONVINCE OUR CITIZENS TO BEHAVE RESPONSIBLY AND ALSO THAT FOOLISH AND IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR CAN NOT BE TOLERATED. IN THE USA EVEN VERBAL THREATS CAN BE A CRIME. HOW CAN A PERSON THAT KNOWINGLY EXPOSES A FELLOW CITIZEN OR ANY PERSON TO A POTENTIALLY DEADLY ILLNESS NOT BE A CRIME ??? PEOPLE THAT REFUSE TO COOPERATE NEED TO JUST STAY HOME AND HAVE THEIR GROCERIES DELIVERED BY FAMILY OR PAY FOR DELIVERY. IT SHOULD ALSO BE A CRIMINAL OFFENSE TO NOT COMPLY WITH SAFETY STANDARDS. IT IS COMPLETE AND UTTER NONSENSE TO CLAIM THAT COMPLIANCE WITH SIMPLE RULES AND REGULATIONS ARE A INFRINGEMENT UPON PERSONAL CIVIL RIGHTS! WE ALL ABIDE BY RULES AND REGULATIONS AND WE ALL ARE CAPABLE OF ADAPTING.

IT IS A ACT OF RESPECT TO PROTECT OUR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS AND OURSELVES ! IF SOME PEOPLE REFUSE TO WEAR MASKS, THEY CAN GO SIT OUT IN THE WOODS OR SOMEWHERE THEY CAN NOT INFECT SOMEONE WHO IS TRYING TO COMPLY WITH REGULATIONS.

GRANTED, I DO NOT HAVE THE ANSWERS. HOWEVER… WE HAVE PROFESSIONALS THAT DO KNOW THE ANSWERS ! WE NEED TO LEARN FROM THEM AND THANK ALL THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND FIRST RESPONDERS THAT SERVE OUR COUNTRY AND RISK THEIR LIVES FOR OUR COMMUNITIES EVERY DAY. ALL OF THEM!!!!

JOSEPH BIDEN WILL BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT AND KAMALA HARRIS WILL BE OUR NEXT VICE PRESIDENT. I KNOW THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP STATED THAT KAMALA HARRIS WILL NOT BE THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT. I WILL NOT BET AGAINST HER! JOSEPH BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS ARE BOTH LEVEL HEADED AND HONORABLE RESPECTED LEADERS !

IF THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP IN THE SENATE TRIES TO PUSH THROUGH THIS SUPREME COURT NOMINATION SO CLOSE TO AN ELECTION, CONSIDERING WHAT THEY HAVE SAID WHEN THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT….. I THINK THAT STACKING THE SUPREME COURT WOULD BE UNFORTUNATE…. BUT JUSTIFIED ! I WONDER WHAT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBERG WOULD THINK ABOUT THIS SITUATION IF SHE WAS ALIVE ?
