As if our national divisiveness isn't enough we are now at the threshold of a real bonafide crisis.. a health crisis to boot.  When it comes to health we are all vulnerable to this virus as it recognizes no political boundaries nor cares about political ideology, nor bows to religious affirmation, or cares about our human obsession with race or gender.  It's a living life form and by natural design it's only doing what its been programmed by nature to do... feed to procreate in order to exist in a world of survival of the fittest.  Like a microscopic Terminator, we can't talk to it; we can't reason with it.  Our hand washing, mask wearing, and quarantines are simply barricades to slow it's advance.  No question about it.. humanity got caught with their pants down on this one... pretty much like the others in past history.    How can anyone make a threat like this into some political argument when humans are dying?  Let's explore.
