Be afraid, Be very afraid

Zombie Apocalypse
I'm not paranoid.  Really, I'm not.  I just get skittish when government "officials" say there is nothing to worry about.  Really?!  If there is one group of people of whom you should be afraid, it is government "officials" who say there is nothing to be afraid of.

Don't believe me?  Remember back when Edward Snowden distributed all that information during the Obama Administration?  Shortly after that revelation, POTUS Obama stated that
American's shouldn't be too worried about these disclosures because all three branches of government had blessed the programs and activities that were being disclosed.
While that was a true statement, what was important to note is that what Obama was actually saying is that every branch of government was in on the fix.  The SCOTUS, the POTUS, and both houses of the federal legislature knew that the U.S. Constitution was being used as toilet paper to collect information on we the people - and the federal government was O.K. with that.

Imagine the chagrin when I'm reading in the newspaper (yeah, the paper version) that government "officials" have announced that there has been 20 cases of Tuberculosis ("TB") in the Inland Empire but that, "we do not consider it an outbreak."  Basically, they're saying not to worry, we have everything under control.  Who cares that there have been 155 confirmed cases of TB in LA County and 28 cases in San Bernardino County this year (so far).  They've got this under control. 

If these government "officials" have everything under control, why is this a front page story (albeit Press Enterprise front page, but front page, nonetheless)?  Is Trump not doing something to roil the democrats?  Is ISIS under control?  Those are front page stories - not that government "officials" have everything under control. 

Better bet is that these government "officials" are freaking out.  Yes, yes - I have no doubt that these "officials" have told all branches of the government about the impending collapse of western civilization and they have "blessed these programs and activities."  I also suspect that these same "officials" are hoarding as much water, food, and medical supplies as they can before the impending zombie apocalypse.

Yep, we're all doomed.
