President Abe Lincoln said, “You can fool some of the people sometimes. You can fool some people always. But you cannot fool all people all the time.”
America, including politicians, wake up and speak up! We are being snowballed and given a very rough time by public health, as dictated by the extremely critical/overreactive/overcautious federal officials; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; NHS, etc.
Yes, the COVID-19 is a serious matter and very contagious. But let’s look at numbers and percentages for the deaths. One million of the 7.3 billion population (the world) is only 0.013%. 200,000 for what, 320 million people (U.S.A.) is just 0.063%. Earlier, SRN news surveyed U.S. deaths. 67% were elderly with underlying factors, many in their last days and months in adult care. The remaining 33% tallies to 0.015% of the total U.S. population.
Most COVID-19 cases have mild to moderate symptoms. Yes, like any other ailment (coughs, fever, sneezing) they should stay isolated at home for a few days. Only a few have to be hospitalized. A very high percentage recovers and survives. How many times has the government (agency, bureau, service, etc.) “miscued,” overreacting with hasty, emotional decisions dictating policies with little or no research or no public commentary? Examples: the spotted owl habitat, the ban on cyclamate, the freon ban, the misconception that mankind is causing climate change, etc.
“We have met the enemy, ourselves!” (Famous quote). Why ruin the economy and bankrupt the country for a few lives?
