Fixing Stupid

I feel like a broken record. I’ve said the same thing so many times in the past eight months.

I keep hoping somebody will listen.

They say, in our state of Texas, that you can’t fix stupid.

I am almost sure that they have this saying in New Jersey and New York because my sister who used to live in upper New Jersey said that to me once.

Well, somebody forgot to tell the governor of New York and the elites who live in Washington DC.

You can’t fix stupid.

We are now entering the second wave of the coronavirus, and we have a governor of New York who is going to implement the same failed policy that he implemented only seven months ago.

It bears repeating: You can’t fix stupid.

Why would he think that the same solution which failed before would work again?

He reminds me of a man who does a sailor dive into an empty swimming pool, survives, and then comes back to do it again.

Let’s repeat the essential message here: You can’t fix stupid.

I blame myself.

I don’t communicate effectively.

I’ve told the following story before, and I’m going to tell it again.

If you know the governor of New York, please tell him this story.

If a gang of Nazis stormed your local beach, say Brighton Beach, and started killing everyone, what would you do?

Well, of course, the first thing you would do is run for cover to assess the situation.

This seems reasonable.

After assessing the situation, suppose that you noticed that these Nazis, could not kill citizens under 30 years of age. Or, that they were killing them at a much lesser rate.

Further suppose, that these Nazis could not even see very well the citizens under 30 years of age.

What would you then do?

Most people would take note of that and exploit that weakness of the Nazis to their own advantage.

I think it seems safe to say that you would then arm those citizens with guns to go after and kill all the Nazis.

Wouldn’t you?

I think so.

Well, guess what?

In in the case of COVID-19, you can arm every single person who is under the age of 30, with the exception of those who are immunocompromised or those who have chronic medical diseases.

You can do this because everyone of those individuals already contains a weapon which can kill the Nazis, in this case the coronavirus.

What is that weapon?

It is your immune system.

Each one of us has a weapon, a great weapon, to defeat viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

God, or nature, gave us this weapon just as that weapon was given to every single species on the planet.

This is why we are here.


Without this weapon we wouldn’t be here and neither would any other species be here.

Our immune systems are the original Louis Pasteur.

In fact, they are smarter than Louis Pasteur, or Pfizer, or Merck, or GSK.

Ditto to Moderna, Dr. Fauci’s favorite sex toy.

These weapons have served us well for hundreds of thousands of years if not more.

Only a stupid man would not take advantage of these weapons.

The governor of New York by not choosing to use this weapon identifies himself as a stupid man.

I feel like crawling over the dinner table to strangle him and say: You are a stupid man, Abel Sunday.

Is the governor stupid?

His actions reveal that he is.

Can we fix stupid?

We don’t have a choice.
