Zippy the Pinhead was a comic book that ran for a few issues back around 1970, and featured a tall, skinny guy dressed in a clown suit, who was microcephalic, pin-headed. Mongoloid is another term for the condition. At the time it was pretty funny, but times have changed.
There’s a virus, called Zika virus, that’s spreading throughout South America like crazy and is starting to spread here, that causes this condition in the unborn. It’s carried by a mosquito, and pregnant women who are bitten by a Zika virus infected mosquito end up having pinheaded children.
The children are drooling idiots. They have shrunken brains that barely function, and they’re being born by the thousands right now, and there’s no vaccine against the disease. It doesn’t kill people, the symptoms are a lot like a bad case of the flu, but it causes Mongoloidism in babies.
The world needs to take note of what’s happening here. Zika used to be one of those extremely rare diseases. Why it’s out of control and rampant now, I don’t know, I haven’t researched it, but that’s not the point. The point is that there’s plenty of other rare diseases that can kill in a few days, and one or more of them could suddenly spread like wildfire just as Zika is doing, and kill off huge populations because there’s no vaccines for them. Those little Mongoloid babies are as good as dead, they’ll never grow up and have families of their own. The kind thing would be to suffocate them at birth.
Last year Ebola broke out in Africa and the entire world was alarmed at the speed of it’s spread. It was contained, but no one really knows why it died down, they’re just all breathing sighs of relief that it did. It seems that other diseases are making a comeback including Bubonic Plague, the Black Death that killed off most of Europe and was carried by fleas.
As the human migration continues to increase at the same time that living conditions everywhere continue to deteriorate, we’re going to see more outbreaks. There’s only so many doctors and health services, and they usually get overwhelmed during any disaster. I see no way to prepare against a contagious disease outbreak, and no one lives forever anyway. Mother Nature has it’s checks and balances and we’ve been messing with the old gal pretty hard for a long time, so whatever happens, happens. I’ve said this before, that this stuff is going to happen and the best thing anyone can do for themselves is to make an effort to maintain as good a health as possible, stay physically strong, and pay attention to the world around you. This isn’t a warning or a survival manual, this is just reporting on what’s happening.
