NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG: New Mexico man in his 20s dies of septicemic plague. “On July 27 a Santa Fe County man in his 60s was diagnosed with bubonic plague. . . . There are three forms of plague, with symptoms varying depending on how the person was exposed to the bacterium, according to the Centers for Disease Control.”

Also: China bubonic plague spreads: Beijing orders second lockdown after new horror death. “Panic has swept across China’s Inner Mongolia province after a second bubonic plague lockdown was enforced, two days after the first, as whole villages are sealed off.”

Why wasn't there a 500% excess deaths in 2019, or 2018, or 2017, or 2016 ? Or 1950?

cuz then, a nasty cold wasn't massaged into a nastier cold by -- *bein' generous -- incompetents with the best of intentions

we're startin' to go circular, sayin' the same shit in different ways

not found of merry-go-rounds myself

got sumthin' new to add?

if not: I got other things to do









*how am I doin', Gary?

Henry,the unreason of sheeple is not the attitude of all persons who have an intelligent child's knowledge of biology.
