Too Cynical

I imagine it’s a combination of factors:

  • Lack of sleep due to the Royals going extra innings…again! 1
  • The mental gyrations concerning the magic of compound Ebola 2
  • Framing a bet on the date the middle east devolves entirely back to the 10th century.

In any event it looks like a day at the office spent playing cards and making music.

Too Cynical

  1. These last two outings may have been the most unlikely games the Royals have ever played.
  2. We’ve note both the serious and somewhat tongue-in-cheek aspects of the probable outbreak of the disease in the U.S. but didn’t consider…well, what are the odds, do you think, that some insanely brave individual exposed themselves to the virus and then flew into the U.S. to deliberately expose as many people as possible? This in the belief that only American drug manufacturers are capable of producing a cure and then only if they could be induced to do so by creating a new, highly exploitable market out of the American consumer? Is that too cynical? And if so, too cynical compared to what: invading and destroying nations to exploit their natural resources? Deliberate financial exploitation of the foreign migrant workers who do all the back-breaking seasonal work in this country? Banking hundreds of millions of dollars off unpaid college athletes doing irreparable harm to themselves? What, exactly, constitutes too cynical these days?

  1. Cynical, maybe not. But…
    Would anyone be at all surprised if it turns out that U.S. Patient Zero is somehow contracted to a subsidiary of a holding company owned by a subdivision of Goldman Sachs, which has recently taken a significant stake in the pharmaceuticals sector and particularly the area of the pharmaceutical sector that profits from the production and sale of ebola treatments?
    … I sure as hell wouldn’t be.

Something to say...?
