Why would anyone want to place the blame in China, on the other side of the world? Who would benefit from chaos? Who always scapegoats? Let's see? Who should we ask? Who is irresponsible enough to kill a hundred thousand for a diversion that would allow him to eventually declare martial law, and finally suspend the Constitution? That's a tough one!
The contestants will be randomly selected from communities all around the United States. They will be informed that they may likely be chosen to die for the good of the economy and encouraged to give their best performance to convince the panel why they are more valuable to society than they are a burden.

There's another dirty trick going on if you want to hear about yet another: quality serology testing is already available in China. Hundreds of thousands of kits have been made available to us, but are being held up by the F.D.A. Another stupid delay, when every delay costs lives.
Aspirational thinking is dangerous, even deadly. Magical thinking is murder. And waffling and wavering back and forth about fundamental issues is to start a mile race, three-quarters of a mile behind.
I quickly descended into a nightmarish cycle of lying on my side because of exhaustion, followed immediately by sitting up to breathe several breaths, manually controlled. It was the only way that I could breathe, but it was exhausting. The complete cycles became shorter and shorter until they were only about thirty to forty seconds long. This went on for ten days.
