Mask Hysteria: The Possible Joy of Civil Disobedience

We established the reasoning behind opening up.  The bottom line here is that despite everything you’ve been told there is no reason to keep things shut down. People like Governor BLACK FACE MATTERS Northam have already permanently destroyed enough of our businesses and society for their political gain.  It’s time for it to stop!

Part 8

If businesses and schools do open be prepared to be bombarded by propaganda. The media will find the one kid in thousands that dies of COVID. You will see the mourning parents, wretched in their grief. You will be told that opening the schools caused this death. You will not be told about any comorbidity the kid may have suffered from.

Numbers WILL spike. But the numbers you see will be “cases” (people who just test positive) and deaths. The vast majority of the numbers will be captured by the ever increasing testing, especially among children. You won’t be told how many more will likely never get sick or who has recovered. Through this we must persevere. We have done enough damage to our country already. We cannot open and close again. EVER.

When you see headlines about kids dying and disease spreading like a prairie fire, read the whole article, or review whatever sources the story cites.  You WILL find what headlines and opening sentences tout as the key points, will not be so.  Buried in the noise you will find the the shock the stories try to impart is propaganda, hype, what Trump would call “fake news”.

Places like Walmart and Home Depot did a lot to help carry the economy. But protecting the masses does not justify the disparate treatment of businesses. This is not the Soviet Union. The nanny state doesn’t get to choose winner and losers. If one is shut down, all must be. Let people assess their own risk. Let the market to decide outcomes.

As for schools specifically, send in the kids. If a teacher is too old to be exposed to COVID or is morbid obese or is simply afraid to face COVID, THEN THAT TEACHER SHOULD STAY HOME AND “ZOOM” INTO THE CLASSROOM. I am sure there are plenty of college kids studying to be educators who would be happy to monitor the class in person.

As for you. Well, you can take a page from what the snowflakes and bed wetters are doing in major cities right now.  They are committing acts of violence, pretending it has something to do with people like George Floyd or social justice.  You needn’t go that far.  But a bit of civil disobedience might be in order.  Make your own personal risk assessment.  If you believe you are not a high-risk candidate…GATHER! Or if you are willing to stand against stupidity on the behalf of others in the face of risk…GATHER!

Open your businesses.  Support those who do. Protest in front of closed schools, loudly and in large numbers. Have less frightened friends in for a barbecue.

I listened to the mayor of Washington DC this morning responding to the violence in that Democrat dystopia.  Twenty-one people were shot at a large party.  The mayor threatened people with jail time for having such parties.  Not for the shootings.  The was Black on Black.  So it don’t matter, so to speak.  The pathetic mayor was talking about people having parties against her dictates.  Because [Shriek!] COVID!!!!

Well, if that is the direction our government wants to take, I suggest we do our best to keep them very busy indeed.  My guess is when our interaction becomes too much to deal with, the police will ignore the soft-headed, spineless, corrupt politicians and go back to policing real crime and safety.

There. Done. We can open and survive nicely…mostly.

 Travel back to the happy, carefree days of 2015-16, when the only worry we all had was Trump vs Clinton.  Perhaps we can find ideas to help us cope with the national nuthouse we all live in now! Click here!

Mask Hysteria: Moving the Goal Posts

It would be swell if the politicians would stop moving the goal posts.  But they can’t.  They haven’t gotten Trump out of office yet.  And Congress keeps announcing more and more money is to be doled out.  So, too bad for you.  We need to keep everything screwed up at least through November.

Part 7

Well, we were first told that we just needed a few weeks of downtime to “flatten the curve” on COVID then we could open back up. A hospital ship was dispatched to New York and emergency hospitals facilities were set up in strategic areas to help hospitals with the overflow.

We quickly flattened the curve. But then we were told we can’t take our foot off the accelerator now. We need to stay shut down. We flattened the curve some more. The hospital ship left New York. This is around the time politicians realized they had the money and political thing going for them.

After months of this utter nonsense we started to talk about reopening. The damage done to the economy by this time was immense. But it seemed even the politicians were getting it. They warned that when we opened back up, there would be surges in positives reported. The availability of testing was also unmasking more cases as well. Only the wimpiest of political hacks were talking of shutting back down again.

So across the country small businesses started ordering supplies, this included small restaurants (they don’t get a do over). We opened up and…OH MY GOD! THE NUMBERS ARE GOING UP!

Across the country restaurants that had barely held on through the pretend quarantine, now with refrigerators full of perishables they put precious money into, would only to see them spoil again. Half the country went back to cowering under the bed.

Supply chains across the country were once again disrupted. 39% of businesses closed by the virus now report they will never open again.

This has been our precursor to steal us against the next flu season. I can’t wait to see how much weaker and more stupid we become as a nation when the flu and COVID are floating around.

Here’s the good news.

I never come with just the problem. I bring solutions as well. Not that they will be implemented. Politicians are too selfish and amoral to do what is actually right. Just look at the wealth wasted on ideas that did nothing for anyone for more than a week at a time. And they want to do more of the same. The GOP wants to print money and the Dems want to fund pet social projects. None of it will save a single life from COVID. Not one.

But here’s the correct course of action: Send the hospital ship back to New York. Send one to LA. Open field hospitals and emergency treatment centers, strategically, all over the country. In the meantime, open everything.  EVERYTHING.

Next we’ll discuss whether civil disobedience may be in order here.

Mask Hysteria: Celebrity Trumps Science

In the previous segment we were getting into the mask, celebrity and more phony “science”.

Part 6

Then you have people who wear a mask the way my brother (a medical professional) does.  They wear them loose or under the nose. The masks are constantly falling down. So the wearer is constantly fidgeting with the mask or breathing openly anyway.

Also, if you wear a mask all day it become moist and warm and harbors the germs you are exposed to including COVID. When you breath out, you shed those germs.

Finally, most of the masks we wear now, the cute ones people made at home while under “quarantine” are about as effective as wearing a chain link fence on your face. The weave in the cloth is many times larger than the 200[1] nanometers of a COVID cell. Will it catch some? Sure. Are you measurably safer with a homemade mask? Not much.

With these considerations, and their collective tribal knowledge of the mask, all these docs initially said wearing a mask in public wouldn’t mean all that much in terms of safety. By all means, if you want to wear one, go right ahead.

Then people got caught up in the drama of COVID. Politicians realized the money to be siphoned from the federal tit, not to mention the truncheon to beat POTUS with. The image of everyone sporting a mask became a SYMBOL. Otherwise reasonable people felt free to scold fellow citizens for not following the “science”. When personal safety still wasn’t enough to get everybody to cover up the new meme became that wearing a mask protects others so if you don’t you are selfish and want others to get sick. If you do YOU’RE A HERO.

The socio-political clamor became so rabid that one-by-one all these doctors listed in the last post eventually turned their backs on what they know to be true and started saying the mask was now the critical key to survival in the fight against the Chinese virus. The last among them was Surgeon General Adams. So much for the “science” of it all.

[1] The size of a COVID cell is estimated to be 80 – 120 nm according to NIH. The most liberal estimates are 200nm. So I am being generous here.
