California: Do Not Trust Jerry Brown to Handle the Flu Epidemic

The Californian government might be handling the current flu epidemic just like it handled the wildfires – incompetently, indifferently, and with an eye towards political gain. Somebody needs to watch it.

Bloomberg, February 9, 2018: Flu Is Causing 1 in 10 American Deaths and Climbing:

Along with the pneumonia it spawns, this year’s epidemic may be killing 4,000 people every week.

The amount of influenza ravaging the U.S. this year rivals levels normally seen when an altogether new virus emerges, decimating a vulnerable population that hasn’t had a chance to develop any defenses. It’s an unexpected phenomenon that public health experts are still trying to decode. The levels of influenza-like illnesses being reported now are as high as the peak of the swine flu epidemic in 2009 …”

  1. I wouldn’t trust Jerry (“Governor Moonbeam”) Brown to give me the accurate time of day!
    Solve the flu crisis!? Brown is better at CREATING a crisis. During his first term as governor, good ‘ol Jerry decided it was cruel to keep mental patients, drug addicts, chronic alcoholics, etc., institutionalized. So what did he do? He closed these institutions in order that they might be “integrated” back into society without so much as a bus ticket home (not that most knew where home was or cared for that matter), thus leaving most to roam the streets, alone, without support, creating the current homeless problem in California.
    If you want to really screw things up, just ask a liberal to fix something!
