The Sultan (aka Fazza, aka the crown Prince of Dubai) issued a public statement of reassurance to his community.
“Sheikh Hamdan stressed the importance of adhering to all preventive procedures outlined by concerned authorities in the country. Following these procedures is key to maintaining the safety of community, he said, while highlighting the importance of following the precautionary protocols and guidelines of relevant authorities and the World Health Organisation.”
“Sheikh Hamdan further said the Dubai Government has set an example for digital transformation and infrastructural preparedness to deal with any kind of crisis. He thanked the government and private entities for their relentless efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, stressing he is confident of Dubai’s ability to deal with any challenges and safeguard the public’s health.”
I fail to see that either Trump or Pence making any public statement and we are in a state of chaos, which has victimized me as I can not have my knee replacement surgery until May 12, 2020 But I refuse to worry, refuse to fret, I shall be fine and will be a model for all of the cowards and stupid people who surround me. I am not in a great deal of pain and shall see my doctor tomorrow to learn of measures to protect myself further. I SHALL SURVIVE AND EVEN THRIVE.
I was walking in my neighbourhood, spoke to a couple, introducing myself and asked for their names.
He: Sam and Samantha.
Me: Wow! Matching names!
He; Yes, we did it on purpose.
Me: That is a great idea, but I have a problem.
He: What is that?
Me: There is this guy, His name is Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai
He: It is going to be most difficult to match that name.
Me: Tell me about it! Extremely difficult But I guess I will always be Alexis and it does rhyme with Texas.
News from Dubai. Trump should go there, follow in the footsteps of the Crown Prince of Dubai and get an idea of what he should be doing. Sunday he visited those people that were making major contributions to the containment of the virus.
Dubai: Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, visited a number of professionals on the frontline of the UAE’s fight against coronavirus on Sunday morning.
Sheikh Hamdan said, “I would like to thank all federal and local entities for your efforts to ensure our safety. You are our first line of defence. Everyone should abide by the directives issued by relevant authorities with the aim of protecting the health of our community.”
Have not noticed Trump or Pence visiting the frontlines. Trump goes to Florida, Pence hides behind his wife’s skirts. Of course, Pence was in church on Sunday morning asking Jesus to forgive his sins. It would be preferable if he were to adopt the precepts of the Islamic faith and not sin in the first place and have a good relationship with his Creator. This explained in the blog of March , 2020.

However, everything, everywhere seems to be shutting down. This taking place even in Dubai and in Abu Dhabi Crown Prince of Dubai and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, met on Sunday to discuss COVID-19 and public health and safety of both Emirati citizens and residents.
“The grand opening of the Etihad Arena has been postponed as a precautionary measure against the spread of coronavirus.
The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi ordered the closure of its main tourist attractions, theme parks and cultural destinations from Sunday until the end of the month.
This includes Louvre Abu Dhabi, Manarat Al Saadiyat, Qasr Al Hosn, Culture Foundation, Al Ain Palace Museum, Al Ain Oasis, Al Jahili Fort and Qasr Al Muwaiji.
Qasr Al Watan Tour, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will also be affected by the closure order.
There are currently 98 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UAE.”
This is definitely not a good time to be a tourist. This is craziness, it truly is. I do not think it is going to work and professionals agree with me. The sky is falling, the sky is falling seems to be the response of the world to this coronavirus. You absolutely MUST Google and then watch Chicken Little: The Sky is Falling, That is exactly what is happening, it must be required watching for all people making decisions in this day and age.
Am I the only voice crying in the wilderness? “One who expresses an unpopular opinion or idea. He was a voice crying in the wilderness as he tried to expose the vast corruption within the organization. She felt like a voice crying in the wilderness as she tried to warn others about the impending economic collapse.” The expression was coined by John the Baptist, of all people and is found in Isiah 40:3 and other cross references, Mathew 3:3, Luke 3:4 etc, etc.
That is all for now. Photograph of me wearing my most recent red glasses.
