Beware! Mindblowing Lunacy Looms.

THE UPCOMING LUNACY WILL BE INEXCUSABLE. But half of you will buy into it.

I haven’t been writing as much as I had in the past. One big reason is the impossibly irrational atmosphere we live in today. As a political commentator, I am left at a loss as to where to inject reason into any argument.  But looking ahead, if you can believe it, we have more lunacy coming down the pike.

The COVID hysteria has not helped at all.

But there is an important event on the horizon that you need to pay attention to. It is urgent enough for me to look past the endless nonsense of look downs and mask arguments to give you a heads-up.

The track record of the “chicken littles” has been to keep you in a constant state of worry and fear since they decided to finally take the Chinese Plague seriously in March of this year. The reason for that is purely political. The people who cry the loudest about politicizing a virus are the ones who have made it nothing else.

A preview of the upcoming event occurred when the CDC and most states agreed it was time to reopen the economy (That’s the thing we never should have shut down as it turns out. I would contend we haven’t saved a single life doing so. I’ll explain that later.) We were warned of the obvious fact that when we reopened there would be spikes in COVID cases. Everyone agreed to that.

Cool Gifts.


We’ll just pretend we didn’t hear it.

Then we started to bring businesses online. Restaurateurs and others who depend on a constant flow of consumables and/or perishables dumped all they had into restarting. Within a week, and during a time of increased testing, GASP, there were more cases of Red Death reported!

Did our brave, strong nation say, “Okay, we knew this would happen. Be careful, weigh your risks and push ahead!”? Noooo. Half the nation and all the places run by Democrats reverted to blind panic and victimized those same struggling businesses we already screwed. But this time they were double screwed because they were not going to see a return on the extra expense they had to put up to reopen.  This was on top of their previous losses.

This is the same idiocy you WILL witness in coming weeks. This is how it will shake out.

Remember you heard it here first.

In mid to late November the flu will start to emmerge. Kids will start getting the flu. The flu is infinitely more dangerous for children than the ChiComm Fever. So in order to justify many months of the nonsense we’ve already seen, and in order to pull in that good federal spending associated with the COVID, ALL the kids reporting with flu will be listed as “suspected” COVID cases. After testing, positive or negative, they will be counted as COVID related. When the flu starts killing our children as it does every year, those dead children and their families will be exploited. First their deaths will be listed as COVID or COVID related. There will be little or no consideration for whether they actually had the virus. The press will hunt down as many of these families as they can and will feature their wretched grief every half hour on the idiot box. Some of those families (yes, there are people this debase out there) will eagerly participate in the exploitation of their dead child.

How’s that for inexcusable lunacy?

Don’t doubt me on this.  Since the outbreak of this thing, every single person who tested positive for COVID, who subsequently died, has been listed as a COVID death.  The term is “COVID-related”. It counts against the national death count. And it is counted regardless of whether the patient exhibited COVID symptoms.

And the battle cry will be, of course, Donald Trump killed our children because he didn’t stop COVID. They are already saying it about adult deaths every single day. It isn’t true. He was negotiating the development of COVID antibodies two months before his detractors stopped saying he was hyping the disease for political reasons. These same assholes now claim they were “ahead” of Trump since the start of the pandemic.

So, yeah, all the same people will lie shamelessly over the coffins of our kids who die of flu. And the tribal drones who quote them today, calling it “science”, will sadly nod and agree with this new narrative later.

This will happen. Even though I am writing this now; even though others will make the same predictions soon; you will see this new narrative emerge.

The Point I Promised

I said earlier that we have not “saved” a single life with the lock-downs and other restrictions. If we have the true numbers “saved” are utterly negligible. How do we know this? Well, as early as June 66% of those coming down with COVID said they were wearing masks, participating in restrictions and social distancing.[1]   As of today, 26 October 20, we are seeing spikes in cities all over the country. Everywhere you go, 99% of the people are keeping their distance and wearing masks. Major cities are still under draconian lock downs or other restrictions. And the numbers still continue to spike occasionally.

The tribal drones will tell you this is because of the 1%, the selfish people who don’t wear masks or live their lives as normal.

[loud game show buzzer]

Sorry kiddies. You can’t have your argument both ways (although you always assume to with other issues like climate change). If wearing masks works and social distancing works and staying out of restaurants works, then you should be safe and healthy despite what the mean, selfish people do.

Ah, but you have been going to restaurants and bars and Walmart and parties too, haven’t you? You have made your own risk assessment, even unconsciously, and gone about YOUR life. And despite all your cautions and virtue signaling the virus continues. It will accelerate as the weather gets colder and we spend more time indoors, masks or no masks. If you don’t want to catch it, stay home. Don’t go to Walmart. Don’t go to restaurants. Don’t have parties at your house. Don’t go to work.

If you do any of those things, there is NOTHING you can do to avoid exposure. And the onus is on you to make your own risk assessment and no one else.

[1] Speaking only STATISTICALLY, that figure says if you wear a mask you have a 44% greater chance of acquiring COVID than if you do not.   In fact, all weekly average increases can be accredited to the gradually increasing number of tests capturing a wider and wider number of positives. But it still makes the mask fetish look less effective.

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.
