Key West Lou / PARASITICAL

Eighty five years old and never heard the word parasitical before.

Came across it yesterday. Looked it up.

Parasitical applies to persons having the nature or habits of a parasite or leach. Its practical application in today’s society defines the term as a wealthy class parasitic living off the labor of the masses.

Parasitical persons are all over the place. Control politics, finances, etc. Just about everything. Politicians dance to their tune.

We are told every day in the media that coronavirus has been good for the wealthy. They have become wealthier as a result. At the same time as the poor have become poorer.

Coronavirus should be Trump’s number one consideration. It is not.

He has other problems of more concern to him.

One, his hair.

Trump has been complaining that water coming out of a shower head does not have sufficient force. The slower power makes it difficult for him to do his hair properly.

Several years ago, the Department of Energy had new rules adopted re force of water emitting from shower heads and faucets. Cut back on the amount of water coining through in order to reduce water use.

Trump said, “My hair – I don’t know about you, but it has to be perfect.”

The Department of Energy has come out with new regulations to increase water flow and therefore water force as regards shower heads.

The President is pleased.

Yesterday was a big one for coronavirus deaths in the U.S. The most in one day ever. Nearly 1,500.

Florida’s numbers are still off the wall. One reason is the refusal of certain public officials to understand the dangers that accompany the virus and what can be done to limit its number of infections.

Florida’s Governor DeSantis is one of the blind.

Another is Marion County Sheriff Billy Wood. Marion County encompasses the Ocala area.

Sheriff Wood’s department has a staff of 900.

He issued an order that face masks were not to be worn. No discretion on the officer’s part. The order a mandatory one.

The order was issued the day before the Sheriff’s county set a new record for most deaths in a single Florida county.

I do not understand. Ignorance? Stupidity! Sucking up to the Governor? What?

The Key West Citizen’s daily column Citizens’ Voice comes up with some gems. Comments are sent in by readers to express their opinions on various matters.

Two in this morning’s edition especially interesting.

First from a reader who appears as bright as Governor DeSantis and Sheriff Wood: “I have said since Day 1 of this pandemic knockdown mess that it is nothing more than a government experiment to see what it takes to control the people. Governments can create viruses in labs and pretend it is from something and say ‘we are doing this in your best interest’ as a form of control and bend the population. Those that don’t follow protocol will die and those that do will die and those that do will be further controlled.”

The other from a perceptive and humorous reader: “Strip clubs should be the last to reopen on Duval. Whoever heard of a socially distanced lap dance?”

Enough for today. A doctor visit awaits.

Enjoy your day!
