To be open? Or not….to be!

Five months ago I was poised to reveal what the movie Zardoz is about..or not! I went so far as to create a Civic Drama in downtown Eugene as a continuation to the drama of the SLEEPING BELLE. I found a Bond connection while searching for the scene from ZARDOZ where Zed and his Death Boys enter a old folks home and start shooting the Immortals who could now die thanks to Zed who found his way into the core of the vortex where he flipped the Death Switch – to on! Old people are now begging to die, a theme the “fake god” Donald Do It is pushing as a diversion tactic, because, like the WIZARD OF OZ he has no answers for the coronavirus.  So, as Donald pulls levers behind the Conservative Faith Curtain, the rest of the world meets in one place to look for a REAL solution.

We The People have been taken hostage by Fake Patriots and Doctors who will not let us look outside of the United States for HELP. Consider Patty Hearst (Lady Liberty) being taken by Zed and raped repeatedly in a closet. ‘No Time To Die’ was one of the first victims of the coronavirus. There was serious talk about bringing this Bond movie to the theatres – and put people’s lives at risk. Consider the Shooter inside a theatre a couple of years back. Would you take the chance? This question is now a political one as a group of armed men and women understand they are delivering the message of the President of the United States who declared – it is time to die – for your country! Fleming’s books have become objects of art in this crossover reality show that is redefining American and British Culture. Consider the IRA.

This more than puts me in the Catbird Seat….This enthrones me on high – with the Art Gods….for I am kin to Ian Fleming…and have begun two Bond books. One of them is ‘Bond of Nebraska’. Bond was going to redefine Death, but the Do It Don beat me to the punch with the help of his Evangelical Wizards who End Time Eternal Rapture Cult was being UPSTAGED by the coronavirus.

The idea that ignorance must be sustained – AT ALL COSTS – might be what ZARDOZ is all about. Handing out FALSE HOPE is the order of the day – again! Organized Religions – have seized the day! The last scene of Zardoz was cut for the reason the young man looks like Jesus – born of mortals. Who saw this scene as a blatant attack on Christianity – is the question!

“To be, or not to be? To cut, or not to cut? To wear a mask, or not wear a mask? To be open – or not to be open?”

A family shot a  security guard dead at a Dollar Store for insisting the ALL wear masks. This is the Grand Entrance to the New Dark Age where no EXPLINATIONS are needed. Donald Do It berated the Free Press under the stone cold gaze of Abraham Lincoln. He said they were despicable.

I declare Zardoz the movie of our TIME because it has revealed that most people worship their ignorance and can be easily swayed by a Puppet Master they will lay their life down for. That White People are especially susceptible to being CONTROLLED by a Dictator, Church, or King – is a shocking truth that sits atop the DEADLY VIRUS CAKE with all candles lit – and ready for action. One only need look at the ruins of Berlin to get a powerful clue we are doomed – yet again!

To be threatened by Lesbian Witch Anarchists – who did take over Ken Kesey Square with the help of the Whoville Vortex of the Homeless Apathetics – is to be in the real Zardoz cult movie. There is no solution for homelessness, but, to shoot them all dead – along with worthless Seniors. Why not throw in the Jews – and Arabs? History says the world got caught up in Hitler’s Solutions, and we say we can not go there again. Yet, we humans do not live by solutions. Most of us live in a uneducated muddle where our common day is filled with unstable thoughts and desires that Human Culture has catered to. America’s Culture Wars began when the Puritans landed at Plymouth Rock. My discovery they were filled with Rhetoric Ideas passed on by the Webb-Shakespeare family, is to put the most evolved intellectual group of people – who believe they will become immortals when they did – amongst the Wild Savages that live just outside the Log Fort. In my desire to author a Bond book, I went in search of a real badass enemy who could not be dispatched by a hail of 007 bullets.

Elizabeth Taylor-Burton helped find a medical remedy for AIDS that might lead to a vaccine for COVID-18. The horror going on in Senior Care centers is just coming to light.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation’s mission is to end the AIDS epidemic. For almost 30 years, we have prioritized people around the world who are most vulnerable to HIV/AIDS and those most likely to be left behind as HIV treatment and care expands. Today, those people become extra vulnerable because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are launching a new COVID-19 Emergency Fund that can protect the people we have always sought to serve through HIV care, treatment and prevention, as well as mitigating the damage that COVID-19 can do, particularly to the global gains we are making for more than 37 million people already living with HIV.


Actress to Activist,_or_not_to_be

To be, or not to be” is the opening phrase of a soliloquy[a] uttered by Prince Hamlet in the so-called “nunnery scene” of William Shakespeare‘s play Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1. In the speech, Hamlet contemplates death and suicide, bemoaning the pain and unfairness of life but acknowledging that the alternative might be worse. The opening line is one of the most widely known and quoted lines in modern English, and the soliloquy has been referenced in innumerable works of theatre, literature and music.

To be, or not to be, that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,

No more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;

To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause—there’s the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,

The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,

The insolence of office, and the spurns

That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make

With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,

To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

But that the dread of something after death,

The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn

No traveller returns, puzzles the will,

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to others that we know not of?

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,

And thus the native hue of resolution

Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,

And enterprises of great pitch and moment

With this regard their currents turn awry

And lose the name of action.

A woman, along with her adult son and husband, have been charged in the fatal shooting of a Family Dollar security guard, after he refused to let her daughter enter the shop without a face mask amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Calvin Munerlyn, 43, a father of six, was shot dead on Friday around 1.40pm while working at a Family Dollar store located at 877 Fifth Avenue in Flint, Michigan.

The coronavirus has killed 54 residents of a Medford nursing home over the past four weeks and infected another 100, in the latest deadly outbreak at an elderly care facility in the state.

The rising death toll at the Courtyard Nursing Care Center, a 224-bed facility located behind Lawrence Memorial Hospital, escaped widespread public notice for weeks.

In response to inquiries from the Globe on Monday, Genesis Healthcare, which operates the Medford facility, confirmed that 54 residents with COVID-19 had died since April 5. An additional 117 residents and 42 employees have tested positive for the virus, according to a statement issued by Dr. Richard Feifer, chief medical officer for Genesis.

I can assure you that we are working around the clock to keep our patients and residents healthy and as safe as possible,” Feifer said. “We are doing everything in our power — and everything medical experts know as of this time — to protect our patients, residents, and employees.”

Feifer said the Medford home cares for “largely frail, elderly seniors with multiple health conditions who are already more susceptible to the common cold, not to mention a deadly and highly contagious virus like this one.”

The average age of the residents who died was over 85 years old. Many of the residents have dementia, he said, “making precautions and restrictions difficult to enforce.”

Videos showed one protester antagonizing an NBC4 Columbus reporter in a face-mask, ignoring the reporter’s requests to stay six feet away while accusing the reporter of “terrifying the general public.”

You know that the company you work for is lying to the American people,” the protester yelled.

Later, roughly two dozen demonstrators showed up at the private family home of Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton on Saturday, holding signs that said, “Dr. Over-Re-Acton Hairstylists are Essential” or “Let Freedom Work,”

On Monday, DeWine had a message for them: “The buck stops with me” — so target him instead, he said.

I’m the elected official. I’m the one who ran for office. I’m the one who makes the policy decisions. … So when you don’t like the policy, you can demonstrate against me,” DeWine said.

DeWine, who has already begun reopening various sectors of the state’s economy, said he respected the protesters’ right to demonstrate but did not see the point of being “obnoxious” toward reporters or going to the health chief’s family home to try to make a statement they could easily make on public grounds.

To bother the family of Dr. Acton, I don’t think that’s fair game,” he said. “I don’t think it’s right. I don’t think it’s necessary to get your point across.”

DeWine also questioned why the demonstrators exercising their First Amendment rights would decide to target reporters exercising theirs. The reporters and photographers were “doing nothing more than following that First Amendment, informing the public — and just remember, they’re informing the public about what you think.”

But if you treat them with disrespect, to not observe social distancing with them, to be just obnoxious, I just find that very, very sad,” the governor said. “So come after me. I’m fair game. They’re not.”

DeWine, whose tempered manner and no-nonsense, evidence-guided approach to coronavirus made him an early model leader in the crisis, is an Ohio Republican Party mainstay who has held public office since 1977, including as a U.S. senator. As such, he said he knows a thing or two about protests. “I’ve had demonstrators demonstrate against me in most of the offices, if not all the offices, I ever held,” he said.

So from the beginning, DeWine made clear that protesting would be permitted, part of a First Amendment exception specifically carved out of DeWine’s stay-at-home order — as long as the protesters respected social-distancing rules.

In the most recent protests, and in many past demonstrations across the country, distancing was lacking.

While most scheduled sporting events over the next few months have been canceled or postponed, the longer-term prospects of playing a season of pro football remain up in the air. And with the NFL looking for ways to play as much football as possible, one potential solution being discussed is to hold the games without fans in the stadium. This would allow the NFL to satisfy its television contracts even if it means missing out on ticket and concession revenue.

However, if your assumption is that the NFL’s business model is entirely tilted to the television rights side of things, you’re overlooking a pretty massive chunk of sales that is created with those eight regular-season home games each team has every year. While television makes the NFL the big business it is, those in-person sales of food and gear to people who shelled out for a ticket represent hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue — not to mention thousands of jobs.

To give a better sense of just how great the economic impact of holding an NFL season without fans would be, GOBankingRates looked at Forbes team evaluations of every NFL franchise, the study reveals just how much money is brought in on an annual and per-game basis by sales of tickets and concessions.

The results demonstrate that professional football teams would suffer hundreds of millions of dollars in losses if fans didn’t attend games. Football, indeed, is very big business.—heres-how-to-keep-up-social-distancing-anyway/ar-BB13ARVh?ocid=spartandhp
