Die in a plague, or die in a Socialist Paradise? Tough choice, huh?
It does appear that Coronavirus is going to become a worldwide thing at this point: whatever measures were taken to keep it in the bottle have apparently failed…and if the brutal Chinese government couldn’t contain it, you can rely on it that no free government will be able to. Now it is just a matter of preparation and mitigation.
This does not look like a Black Death sort of plague…we’re not about to lose one third of the human population. But, it will cause a lot of deaths and a lot of dislocation to the economy. But, only temporary…the disease will run its course and die away in a population which builds up immunity to it. We’ll see how Trump does in this – a real crisis.
Meanwhile, Bernie is now the odds-on favorite for the Democrat nomination. Democrats are in a panic and there are plots and plans to undo Bernie…but, all for naught, I think. The Democrats simply can’t afford to lose the Bernie Bros. Knife Bernie and what may be a defeat in November becomes a catastrophic, generational loss.
Can Bernie win? Anything is possible – but I rate his chances of victory at about 1%. Right now, all over the MSM and social media, Democrats are defending Cuba’s government…because Bernie defended it and if he is to be the nominee, he can’t be left alone out there. But this action, right there, likely ensures Trump wins Florida. Meanwhile, the proposed ban on fracking – which Democrats are adopting entirely – likely kills Democrat chances in Pennsylvania and possibly Michigan. Where’s the path to victory? Bernie is talking about campaigning in Texas…in case you want to know where that’s going.
