CDC is a joke

Take a look at the above cartoon. Taxpayers paid $11 billion for it. The CDC's 10,000-plus pencil-pushers decided it must warn Americans of the dangers of swimming with diarrhea.

What is next? A campaign against running with scissors?

It is not that I support swimming with diarrhea, it is that for that money we should have a cure for AIDS by now. It has been 40 years now and we are still waiting on one. I don't need to be told to get out of the pool if I have the runs. In fact, if I have the runs, swimming is the last thing I want to do.

The cartoon is animated.

The New York Post reported there is a second cartoon. The animation illustrates how employees of the federal government view the American public.

To them, we are just inbred morons who have to be told not to eat Tide pods.

For the record, Chuck Schumer is the only person in the world known to mistake Tide pods for candy. Nevertheless, to protect itself, Tide began putting its pods in resealable bowls, and Dollar General placed them under lock and key, spooked by the urban legend of the Tide pod challenge.

The CDC was formed after World War II. Its predecessor was the Office of National Defense Malaria Control Activities, which came up with HCQ.

While the CDC has grown in budget and staffing, actually curing illnesses does not seem to be a priority. Like all federal agencies, it spends a ton of money on PR, but does not seem to get a lot accomplished.

Its advice on covid 19 was horribly ineffective. Neither the wearing of masks or social distancing slowed the spread of covid 19. There was and is no science to back up these draconian requirements. They did not slow the spread.

Quarantining the sick did.

And the CDC without any awareness of the irony, was among the agencies that opposed using HCQ to battle covid 19.

But staying out of the pool when you are sick is nice and safe advice that the CDC staff believes will make it look good in the public's eyes.

Don't run with scissors.


  1. CDC is a complete joke.

    Shut it down.

    1. Exactly what I was thinking. It's just one more useless government agency costing taxpayers a fortune for no good reason.

    2. Thanks, Black Jem. I'll change the headline to that

  2. They just need to put a mask on the kid’s butt. A mask will stop every pathogen known to man, right? /sarc

    1. I think it would be racist for anyone to ask ass mask any questions....

  3. Shoot, at the pool where my wife works, they already have signs up, and have for years. CDC is just reinventing the wheel again.

    But yes, defund it, and defund the NIH while we're at it.

  4. BTW this is one of the reasons why pools are chlorinated, but what do I know. (I do know that when they find feces in the pool -- and it does happen from time to time -- they have to clear everyone out and close the pool, then shock the pool (which means hit it with a big slug of chlorine), and let it filter for 24 hours.)

    My wife says it's usually elderly adults, not kids, who are responsible for it.

  5. Saw that over the weekend and found myself asking what Deep State moron came up with that one.

    Unlike Jeffery and all his sock puppets, it probably shouldn't be shut down, but it makes yet another great argument for term limits for the civil service as much as for congress and the Federal bench.

    The Lefties want the public living in fear, hanging on the the next word from incompetents like the Deep State Dwarf.

  6. I wouldn't be surprised if the gubment genius who thought this amazing campaign up was named CDC Employee of the Month.

  7. Only in our governments (including most state governments!) can workers not accomplish a damn thing but remain employed and even get promoted.

  8. WE need Bill Murray running the CDC he knows how to clean a pool

  9. What an incredible waste of money. It’s like the reminder not to use your hair dryer in the bathtub. We could gut the government by more than half and not skip a beat.

    1. Imagine what it would look like if we ended wealth redistribution. No welfare, no foreign aid no corporate bail outs.

  10. In "psychology" the "p" is silent.

    Just like in "swimming pool."


  11. Give me $11 billion and I'll put out a few PSAs:

    -- Don't spit into the wind

    -- Don't stick your fork into the electrical outlet

    -- Make sure you've secured the parachute harness to your body BEFORE you exit the aircraft at 1250'.

    .. and so on

  12. We are seeing a hostile takeover of America by democrat terrorists and their master plan is horiffic
    .,.Look at this video ASAP!!!'
