Quote of the Day: Two Cents About Sense

“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in His presence.”

- First Epistle of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians 1:27-29, Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Viral TV Ad, Circa 2050?

Lately my television seems to be infested with ads from comely spokespeople urging me to contact a law firm about some danger or settlement: Cancer from asbestos exposure, dangerous HIV drugs, faulty automotive airbags, you name it.

Make no mistake, being afflicted with any of these maladies can be potentially serious, but it also makes me wonder if all the sirens I’m hearing outside are not from the increase in crime but rather ambulances being chased by lawyers.

Which got me to thinking what such “Ambulance chasing” ads might look like, say, 30 years from now when America’s population has received the annual injections of messenger RNA to fight against possible coronavirus infection, and plenty of time to discover any long-term consequences:

COVID-19: Are the Pros Trying to Con Us?

“Plans are worthless, but planning is everything. There is a very great distinction because when you are planning for an emergency you must start with this one thing: the very definition of ‘emergency’ is that it is unexpected, therefore it is not going to happen the way you are planning.”
- Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, November 14, 1957

For the vast majority of ordinary people around the world the COVID-19 crisis was indeed an “unexpected emergency”. And since it started in the USA back in January 2020 plenty of people have their own opinions on what it is, how it started, where it came from, how to avoid it, ways to treat it, who’s controlling or profiting by it, and its’ ultimate impact on the world….along with their varied and often gut-wrenching personal experiences.

In military terms Ike might appreciate, after suffering through “heat of battle” and “fog of war” during the past 15 or so months we’re in the middle of the push to “final victory“:  Injecting nearly everyone with a solution containing messenger RNA (mRNA) designed to modify your body’s genetics to provoke an immune response against a virus, rather than using an inert version of the actual virus (as is done for nearly every other major virus up to now).

Are the COVID-19 pros are trying to con the masses about the vaccine? Here are two competing articles to help motivate you to an answer:

A Sign of Common Sense

No Mask Required

It’s a sign like this that reminds me of the “common sense” my Mom taught me when it comes to staying healthy:

  • Wash your hands frequently, especially before meals and after using the bathroom.

  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.

  • Stay away from those who are sick.

  • Don’t touch anything that’s dirty.

  • Don’t pick up anything on the ground.

  • Clean up after yourself no matter where you are.

  • If you feel sick, stay home, take aspirin, and drink lots of fluids.

  • Go to the doctor if you have a high fever (or, a moderate one for more than a couple of days).

I guess if common sense was actually “common” that business wouldn’t need to post the sign.
