One way to explain the COVID-19 panic is that so many Americans are completely sick.

They are fat and eat all kinds of crap; they don’t exercise; they are deficient in every nutrient known to man.

And these sad facts make adults even in their prime vulnerable to a fairly trivial cold virus like this.

The reason why US state governments have shut down the economy is that they don’t believe they are bound by any law.

America is a rich and powerful nation, and Americans think their prosperity falls down upon them like manna from heaven. Nothing they do can possibly ruin things.

They are drunk with power and think they can do whatever they want; they can have their cake and eat it, too.

But it doesn’t work that way, and the day of reckoning may be closer than they think.

I’m thinking of running for President on the following platform:

I urge all poor people to vote for me, because I will take money from the rich and give it to you, the people. You will personally profit from voting for me. Let me buy the presidency by offering you, the average American, cold hard cash.

The rich people, however, will not be slighted. What I loot from you in taxes, I will plentifully restore to you in inflation. I will print money — lots of money — and give the new cash to you, the rich. Therefore I ask that you donate copiously to my campaign and help me get my message across and get elected.

Money for everybody: untold riches await you! Chernikov for President!

“Therefore the Fed will give you money to spend,

“And you will spend it, not for one day, or two days, or five, or ten, or twenty days, but for a whole month — until it comes out of your very nostrils and becomes loathsome to you.” (Num 11:18-20)
