I stumbled across the following from a Facebook friend of Jennifer’s. The comments are those of Melissa Maye who lives in Yorkville, Illinois. Maybe has her own law office. Good stuff ahead.
In what universe is a virus that has a 99% survival rate a “pandemic”?
What I want to know is: what about all the OTHER people who are facing medical conditions that are not Covid-related? What about that person who can’t get a hip replacement and has been in excrutiating pain for the past five weeks? Or that woman who can’t get a mammogram, even though she’s found a suspicious lump? Or that guy who can’t get a pacemaker or a stent who’s facing dying from a sudden cardiac event? What about that diabetic who just realized he’s been trailing blood across the carpet because he has a wound on his foot that isn’t healing? What about those people who can’t get psychiatric treatment while they are isolated and facing losing their homes and businesses?
Don’t THEIR lives matter???
I read an article recently about a guy who called the police, asking if he should report a group of teenagers who were playing volleyball.
If you are the type of person who has to ask permission from the government to snitch on your neighbors, you don’t deserve liberty.
NY NJ MA PA CA MI IL LA CT MD:
Population: 104.8 million
Covid Cases: 571,161
Covid Deaths: 34,626
TX FL OH AZ TN IN MO SC AL OK:
Population: 103.1 million
Covid Cases: 97,150
Covid Deaths: 2,626
Dr. Ngozi Ezike, head of the Illinois Department of Health, reported on April 19, 2020, that the 1,290 reported deaths were based upon a “very simplistic” death calculation, “which means that if an individual dies “with” Covid-19, the State reports that the person died “of” Covid-19. Dr. Ezike explained that “Even if you died of a clear alternative death, [you] would still be listed as a Covid death.” She went on to explain “Everyone [sic] who was listed as a Covid death doesn’t mean that was the cause of death.””
Clearly, the only inference we can draw from the above data is that people who live in GOP-run states have stronger immune systems than people who live in Democrat-controlled states.
You have the same chance of dying from covid-19 as from dying in a terrorist attack.
All death is 100% for the person who dies. This is called “reality,” and the fact is, nobody gets out of this life alive.
It is both cruel and fundamentally dishonest to take a picture of a garden lizard, call it Godzilla, and convince everyone that it is proof that we’re all going to die a horrible, choking, lonely death.
I listened. I self-quarantined. I gave them the benefit of the doubt. But the fat emperor has no clothes and he has shown us all his true colors. It was not about health. It was not about safety. It was about power, fear, control, and money.
Their credibility has been shot in the ass for the last time. I, for one, will never trust the media or the government’s pencil-necked geeks, so-called “experts,” and policy wonks ever again.
In 1966 Dr. Anthony Fauci graduated first in his class with a medical degree (laudable.)
In 1968 he accepted a job working for the National Institute of Health (commendable).
In 1985, he became the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (impressive).
He’s been an advisor to every president, Republican or Democrat, since Ronald Reagan was in office (admirable).
Look, no one is saying he’s not smart. But he’s an ivory tower bureaucrat. This guy hasn’t seen an actual patient since Lyndon B. Johnson was president. We need to hear from young guys, ER docs, who are on the line, fighting this disease with actual patients. You know what they will tell you?
Go outside. Have a beer with your friends. Eat some dirt.
Where is the science that says it’s okay to go to Home Depot but not okay to go to your hair salon? Where is the science that says it’s okay to go to Costco but not okay to go to a restaurant for lunch?
Something is behind the decisions made in this pseudo-lockdown, but I guaran-damn-tee you it’s not “science.”
