“The Twilight Zone”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:21 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the starry, crescent moon lit, chilly, socially distant island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this somber Monday morning, The Sixteenth Day of March, 2020, the Republic facing a new reality that seems like an episode from the mid 20th Century, “The Twilight Zone”…

The U.S. President, whose name I will not utter on this watery essay, continues to spout happy talk regarding a scary virus that has turned the World on it’s very axis.  Beginning a press conference over the week end by speaking of interest rates and CEO’s…  Jesus. The entire country is under a state of emergency, yet the recklessness of these idiots in ‘charge’, with an “R” next to their soiled name, via their raucous rhetoric and foolish actions, let alone folly disguised as good advise, like going out to eat, or have a drink at the bar, propels one to consider the FACT that these mostly men have indeed visited that place beyond space and time, obviously leaving their common sense, decency and leadership behind in that black void of nothingness.

Oy vey!

This humble reporter took a stroll around Hyannis yesterday, Cape Cod’s largest town, walking up Main Street, normally bustling with people, dogs, kids, with high hopes of the advent of Spring on a sunny High Noon Sunday, yet, there was no one about.  Restaurants closed, bars closed, shops closed.  The lack of cars all across the sand bar were clearly in lack, with the one lone exception being of a cosmic nature, the shop’s sign reading “Instant Karma”;

an interesting notion of the future and what will actually be the fallout from the outbreak of COVID-19.

The World Health Organization offered the Corona Virus test to Trump at the onset of it’s ominous prescience; he refused.  Leading up to his most recent comment this week end when asked at a press conference, if he had any responsibility regarding the pandemic. ‘The Joker’ stating,

“No, I take no responsiblitiy at all.”

Keeping in mind his horse hockey only weeks ago, when he infamously said,

“..if you want a test, you can get a test.”

Leaving health care workers on the front line in danger, and if they go….

One must wonder what Trump’s Karma will end up being ‘at the end of the day’…

If you wish, dear sir, to improve your odds on that fateful destiny, put money in people’s pockets.  Do not let this virus compound with citizens out of work, left not being able to put food on the table, pay their rent, pay for medicines or buy clothes for their kids.  This is real and you better;

wake to F up!

The Federal Reserve cut it’s rate to O, but it will do nothing to help small and large businesses, employees told to stay home, with demand for services, like air travel, down sharply.  This hints at a coming recession, for with no businesses doing business, the economy will suffer.  Congress should not give a pay roll tax cut, that will not help everyday people, no sir! It will only give to the wealthy, this U.S. Congress should be thinking along the lines of a rebate, infuse CASH into society, amidst a complete economic meltdown.

WE as a nation, have never seen anything like this.  No sector of society will be untouched by this global pandemic.  No one really knows how deep it will hit America, an economic crisis much worse than 2008 or 911?  Consumerism has moved back home and did not leave the light on.  Where it spends nothing, thus, hammering “Frozen 2″ into place for the foreseeable future.

Most of the citizens of this nation do not dine with “The Donald” at Mar a Lago, no, most resemble a single, working mom whose waitress position was just vacated, leaving her struggling to cope with her 7 year old daughter who counts on those hours in class for basic life giving sustenance, via school breakfast and lunch. Let alone, attempting to educate her with no broadband or a skill set to instruct, in fear of paying rent and all alone, barricaded in a small apartment that offers no love, only a barrier to a very contagious Corona.

Thanks for the day at Disney World yesterday with NO  adherence to ’social distancing’, with the park crammed to the brim with people.  Lest we forget, Chicago’s O’Hare’s Airport, as over 40.000 people coming back from Europe, crammed into that small space on the terminal as they are processed.

Great job Doanld!

The brash, boastful, arrogant attitude of this so called president offers NO real leadership save his choice in

Doctor Anthony Fauci;

whose real, frank, blunt talk about this epic crisis, on the Sunday morning talk shows, proved palpable, provable, proof positive of what WE are really up against.

“…it will get worse before it gets better.”

Incompetence has nothing on Donald when it comes to real leadership.

Mr. President, please consider putting the market aside, tell the truth and focus of doing what’s RIGHT.

You’re legacy will be written as such, keeping in mind that every action has an immediate and concrete,


“We have it under control”.

Have a nice day and week ahead America, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, Norway, indeed, the whole of Earth.

Stay healthy, stay courageous, stay loving.

For, ‘at the end of the day’, all WE really have is each other.
