…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
The Leader of the Free World, Hussein Obama if you do not recall, just about solved another problem. The problem is the so called ZIKA virus, and, with due allowance for the propensity of the free media to manipulate and fabricate news, it perhaps could be serious. Timing, though, is suspicious. ZIKA virus has been around for sometime. “Since the 1950s it has been known to occur within a narrow equatorial belt from Africa to Asia. In 2014, the virus spread eastward across the Pacific Ocean to French Polynesia, then to Easter Island and in 2015 to Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America.” Could the idea be to make abortions acceptable in the mostly Catholic part of the world while the most un-Catholic Pope lives, rules, pontificates and sabotages Christianity? The World Health Organisation statistics are as credible as Hilary Clinton.
Between his golf games Obama already has made two speeches. “The good news is this is not like Ebola; people don’t die of Zika. A lot of people get it and don’t even know that they have it,” Obama told CBS News in an interview aired on Monday. “But there shouldn’t be panic on this. This is not something where people are going to die from it. It is something we have to take seriously.” Seriously to the tune of mere $1.8 billion, which the US Congressmen will undoubtedly give. Not from their pockets, naturally; from the pockets of American taxpayers. Never missing an opportunity, and adept in creating one, WHO also asks for more money to save the mankind; money unlikely to come from Brazil, busily organising Olympic games, or Venezuela, which, just after 18 years of socialist rule, managed to ruin its oil industry and now has to buy oil from USA.
The money, by and large from the American taxpayers, will mostly disappear into Swiss bank accounts. What should you do? Just in case?
