Remember My Post A Couple Days Ago, “Is Everyone Bananas”?
(Updated 16 June 2020)
Well here’s some proof that it isn’t only Americans who can’t see their nose in front of their faces. The “Brilliant” people of Cebuneeded only two weeks to years the gains made by about two months of COVID 19 lockdown. Yesterday President Duterte reviewed the new case numbers and the hospitalization numbers and placed Cebu back in the much tighter and a-harder to deal with ECQ level of lockdown.
I don’t know why some people think that the relaxed guidelines mean that we suddenly got a “get out of jail free” card, but the bad news is saddening to say the least.
So, back to square one, folks. I can only hope that two more weeks of tighter lockdown cause the people who think COVID 19 is over to think again.

Local Government Units (LGUs), i.e. cities and municipalities in the National Capital Region, may still have curfews in effect to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Some provinces have implemented their own community quarantines. If you live in an area that has imposed a local curfew ordinance or similar community quarantine, please plan your activities and travel accordingly and monitor the relevant LGU’s website for their rules and regulations.
Routine U.S. citizen services, including all passport, citizenship, notary, and legal capacity to marry services are still suspended.

But Don’t You Americans Get Too Smug
I simply can not believe how so many fellow Americans have the head totally up their assholes during this critical time. Look at this graph of the growth of new daily cases. Does this look like it’s time to rip off our masks and go back to singing and dancing in the street?
This is our country, people. Are we going to throw it away because it’s inconvenient to wear a mask or because we want to go sit with our buddies in the bar, shoulder to shoulder, arguing about politics and “taking a knee”?
If you aren’t at home while reading this, GO THERE NOW. Wear a mask whenever you go out and wash your damn hands. This is serious, guys and gals. We’re throwing away the entire war against the virus.
More than 116,000 fellow Americans have already died … stop pissing on their graves in order to “exercise your “rights
Today’s Disgusting News. More than half the States are Going Backward
New daily cases are rising in 27 States. And look at the growth rates!

I know you are smarter than that. I’d like it to be safe for citizens like me to return to the USA … someday,
