It is remarkable when common sense is shunted to the side in order to make way for the absurdity of ridiculous political theater.
But such is the time in which we now live, truth and honesty are vices to be shunned. Lies and distortions treasured artifacts.
Such was the case when Herman Caine, mister 999 flat tax, single-issue former Republican presidential candidate decided to follow the Trump campaign of deceit and lies, by attending Trump’s disastrous June 20th rally in Tulsa.
Eight members of Trump’s advance team tested positive for the coronavirus and his campaign staff had to self-isolate afterward in case of infection.
Death is the great equalizer, no one can claim victory at the death of another, we are all scheduled to die.
However, Herman Caine made a conscious decision to engage in that theater of the absurd, and it cost him the most precious gift he was given, his life.
I will not venture to suggest that had he stayed home he would have been alive today, I believe our personality traits, the things we believe and engage in are all parts of what will ultimately lead to how we leave this world.
Nevertheless, his passing ought to be a warning to the skeptics who would discard the conclusive findings of science on the altar of the inane and retarded.
This virus has killed hundreds of thousands of people around the world and sickened millions. This is no ordinary flu as some would have you believe.
Even though the people we put our trust in, in the scientific community may not deserve most of it, still, we must respect the science and heed the warnings.
Black people in particular, with our compromised immune systems have a duty to exercise care.
When we fail to exercise care, the results are usually swift and clear.
