O, Brave New World! Or is it very new? We’ve seen this play before.
In Europe during the Middle Ages, leprosy sufferers had to wear special clothing, ring bells to warn others that they were close, and even walk on a particular side of the road, depending on the direction of the wind.
Now, in a 21st century update to bells and clapper, Big Tech hopes to use the nearly ubiquitous smartphone to alert people when they come into close proximity to modern-day Chinese coronavirus “lepers”:
[emphasis added to quotes]
Developers are rapidly coalescing around applications for proximity tracing, which measures Bluetooth signal strength to determine whether two smartphones were close enough together for their users to transmit the virus. In this approach, if one of the users becomes infected, others whose proximity has been logged by the app could find out, self-quarantine, and seek testing. Just today, Apple and Google announced joint application programming interfaces (APIs) using these principles that will be rolled out in iOS and Android in May.
Isn’t that special? Big Tech doesn’t seem very concerned about the many privacy issues involved, nor in the obvious drawbacks: Not everybody has or carries a smartphone, not everybody with a smartphone has opted into location tracking or has Bluetooth turned on at all times, not everybody will “voluntarily” download this app and opt into allowing Big Tech to compile such very personal data about them and those with whom they interact.
Will the “app” give permission, so to speak, to the many local health departments to forego the labor-intensive process of contact tracing that should have been policy and practice for, lo, these past 150 years or so?
The father of epidemiology, Dr John Snow, was the first to use this in a methodical and meaningful way back in 1854 at the height of London’s Cholera epidemic.
His contact tracing identified a specific water pump on Broad Street, London as the source of an outbreak from which contaminated water was drawn. He ordered the pump handle to be removed and cases fell. Soon after, the epidemic came to an end. Ironically, victims of the 19th century ‘Broad Street Outbreak’ were nursed under the supervision of Florence Nightingale, whose name is given to the Excel Hospital for this 21st Century outbreak.
This tried and trusted method of outbreak control – identifying cases and engaging with all known contacts – has been largely overlooked and the reason is palpable. It is resource intensive, requires skills to gather, collate and make best use of the information …
For what other purpose do communicable disease divisions of local and state health departments exist, other than to control and prevent communicable disease outbreaks? Isn’t it their job to have the resources, skills, knowledge, and numbers necessary to provide effective contact tracing?
We are losing our God-given constitutional rights through the universal, one-size-fits-all “social distancing” and “shelter in place” regime.
In the Middle Ages, lepers were housed in colonies or in metal shacks outside of civilized areas.
Lepers were often denied entrance to cities (back when towns and cities usually had walls). It was, at the time, a very common practice to simply not let in anyone who wasn’t wanted in the city. This could include the poor, various minority groups, and the sick.
This medieval practice is echoed in some local policies today, as communities face down the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
In what might be one of the most over-the-top and draconian responses to coronavirus yet seen in Montana, Valley County is mandating that people wear government-issued pink arm bands in under to purchase products inside of stores. The measure, enforced by the Valley County Health Department, insists that store-owners keep customers out unless they have the pink arm-bands, which denote the customer has been in the area more than 14 days and submitted to quarantine protocol.
At least that particular health department saw fit to apologize, once their practices came to national attention. What exactly were they thinking?
Lest you think Montana is an outlier, here’s an example from Missouri:
Shannon County wants to keep non-residents from coming into the county because of the coronavirus.
Non-residents, tourists prohibited from entering Shannon County, Mo., unless for essential reasons.
The county issued an order earlier this week, which health officials say is a proactive step to keep the county virus-free.
Normally, this time of year, Eminence starts to come alive.
Businesses are gearing up for the busy, summer tourist season. …
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, tourists are being asked to stay away. …
Got that? Tourists and non-residents are being “asked,” and yet the story talks about an “order” from the Shannon County health department.
Shannon county is home to several state parks and state forests, the Ozark National Scenic Riverway (a federal park), and a portion of the Mark Twain National Forest. One can drive through Shannon county on several state highways and at least one interstate highway.
How the county thinks it will be able to keep “tourists” or “non-residents” out is anyone’s guess. Under what legal theory can they prevent citizens from driving on state roads and highways and federal interstates?
Henceforth, the county will need a new motto. Their current motto is now moribund:
Welcome. Stay a day or a lifetime in Shannon County.
No story I found mentions by what authority a local non-elected bureaucrat can forbid other state or U.S. citizens from entering Shannon county, which last time I checked is still part of Missouri as well as the United States of America.
Tucker Carlson recently wrote about disturbing suggestions that people could be removed from their homes and taken elsewhere (for their own protection and society’s protection, of course).
Says Dr. Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO (World Health Organization):
In most parts of the world, due to lockdown, most of the transmission that’s actually happening in many countries now is happening in the household at family level.
In some senses, transmission has been taken off the streets and pushed back into family units.
Now, we need to go and look in families to find those people who may be sick and remove them and isolate them in a safe and dignified manner.”
Tucker Carlson responded:
Just so you know, we’re coming to your house, seizing your children and “isolating” them in a safe and dignified manner, whatever that means.
Now, that’s not something under normal circumstances, officials casually drop during briefings. It is the kind of statement that might trigger violence. People don’t respond well when you threaten to take their kids.
But Ryan said it like it was no big deal, and that’s how the media treated it. His threat didn’t make headlines in any of the major newspapers in this country. That’s the kind of moment we’re in.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, purportedly this country’s leading expert on infectious diseases, raised the idea of “immunity certificates.”
“It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure who the vulnerable people are and not,” he said. “I think it might actually have some merit.”
Some experts argue immunity certificates – documentation verifying a person is immune to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 – could help reopen the economy by allowing some people to safely return to work, eat at restaurants and partake in activities prohibited by social distancing restrictions.
Got that? If you don’t have your certificate, you can’t participate in society!
Note that they’re talking about immunity, not being contagious and thus a threat to others.
If you’re unfortunate enough to not be immune, then the proposal seems to be that you have lost all your constitutional rights and must remain under house arrest for the duration, without due process whatsoever. You cannot “partake in activities prohibited by social distancing restrictions.”
Mind you, there is not yet one law passed by any elected body that creates any legal “social distancing restriction,” much less lays out punishments like house arrest in perpetuity!
We have been schooled endlessly on the rules. Social distancing. No gatherings of more than 10 people (if that). Wear masks in public and whenever around a gathering of people. Citizens are being asked to snitch on their fellow citizens, like Hitler’s Brownshirts.
Who else but health care providers ought to follow these rules to the letter because who else should know better the results of this pandemic?
We’ve also been told how overwhelmed health care workers and hospitals are as a result of the pandemic.
Submitted for your consideration:
A hospital in St. Louis celebrated the discharge of their 100th COVID-19 patient the other day.
Here are some interesting facts gleaned from the online and print articles and the accompanying video.
- The patient remains contagious.
- In excess of 25 nurses and other hospital employees were gathered close together in the lobby, some not wearing masks around a patient known to be contagious.
- The contagious patient was wearing a surgical mask, not a much more effective N95 mask.
- The patient was picked up by a friend who was not wearing a mask.
- When the patient got into the car, his mask was down below his nose and mouth (about 1:37 in the video).
- According to the print article, when in the car, the patient began to cough, at which point his friend rolled down the windows.
Reporters noticed that the driver had no mask. Did any of the many health care workers offer the man a mask to protect him while he drove the patient home? If not, why the hell not? When told about the fact that the person driving the contagious patient away was maskless, the doctor who heads the ICU said,
That’s not a good thing.
What an understatement! And who is responsible for the bad thing that may come from this lapse?
In the meantime, the rest of us are being arrested for playing catch with our children or forbidden to drive through a field of tulips.
One has to wonder if anyone at the hospital checked out the patient’s living conditions to ensure that he would be quarantined until no longer contagious and to determine whether he might infect others in the home or those expected to care for him. (Not to mention those who chauffeur him around. All that said, God bless this man and let’s all pray for his recovery and the safety of those around him.)
Why is the hospital releasing into the community a person who is still contagious, during the height of a pandemic?
If hospitals are so overwhelmed with patients, then why were all those nurses and other employees standing around for a public relations event instead of caring for other patients?
Just more of the many things that make you go “hmmm” during this time of Chinese pandemic.
Right. The lame (non-existent?) contact tracing will be all ready to go, just like in January and February.
Well, this is good news for those who still believe in law and the Constitution.
“The DOJ could take legal action against Governors drunk on power and infringing on Constitutional rights, Bill Barr said according to Bloomberg News.
Barr said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that state’s stay-at-home orders are justified up to a point, but the DOJ could target state and local officials by joining lawsuits filed by citizens over the authoritarian restrictions.
“We have to give businesses more freedom to operate in a way that’s reasonably safe,” Barr said, according to Bloomberg. “To the extent that governors don’t and impinge on either civil rights or on the national commerce — our common market that we have here — then we’ll have to address that.” …”
I love this! She SO deserves it. She’s SO clueless and tone deaf, drunk on her own superiority and elitism:

I will be signing my Executive Order prohibiting immigration into our Country today. In the meantime, even without this order, our Southern Border, aided substantially by the 170 miles of new Border Wall & 27,000 Mexican soldiers, is very tight – including for human trafficking!
“Furthermore, lawful permanent residents, once admitted, are granted “open-market” employment authorization documents, allowing them immediate eligibility to compete for almost any job, in any sector of the economy. There is no way to protect already disadvantaged and unemployed Americans from the threat of competition for scarce jobs from new lawful permanent residents by directing those new residents to particular economic sectors with a demonstrated need not met by the existing labor supply. Existing immigrant visa processing protections are inadequate for recovery from the COVID-19 outbreak. The vast majority of immigrant visa categories do not require employers to account for displacement of United States workers. While some employment-based visas contain a labor certification requirement, because visa issuance happens substantially after the certification is completed, the labor certification process cannot adequately capture the status of the labor market today. Moreover, introducing additional permanent residents when our healthcare resources are limited puts strain on the finite limits of our healthcare system at a time when we need to prioritize Americans and the existing immigrant population. In light of the above, I have determined that the entry, during the next 60 days, of certain aliens as immigrants would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. …”
It’s something, but I doubt it will help with the VAST imbalance seen in employment in the tech industry. Vastly unequal employment with regard to FEMALES, for one thing, probably based upon the FACT that a large proportion of Silicon Valley employees are foreign MALES who come from countries where women are second class citizens. Sexism, anti-Americanism, racism. That’s the tech world. It didn’t USED to be, before all these visas were handed out to let tech companies hire foreigners at lower salaries who were happy to suffer lower salaries in return for the foot in the door of the U.S.
Right on, President Trump has done everything humanly possible to stop the suffering from the very beginning–and Americans know it. 😀
Indeed. And his poll numbers show it. The more they try to bring him down, the more people support him. Funny how that works.
“Comrades, the engineering department of the Ministry of COVID Compliance is pleased to announce the introduction of a new Proximity Alert Warning System (PAWS) coming soon to the CCTV network in your neighborhood and business.
The objective of the system is to monitor social distances and ensure a compliant society. The system is being tested in partnership with Amazon via state commissar Jeff Bezos. …
[AMAZON] will also use machine-learning software to monitor building cameras and determine whether employees are staying at safe distances during their shifts, or whether they are often huddled too close together. …”
Back in the day, I mean decades ago, I worked for a company that momentarily suggested drug testing EVERY employee on a regular basis, even if they had a job that had nothing to do with the safety of other people (like plane pilots) or even themselves (like people running dangerous machinery). En masse, my department (don’t know about any others), which was a very critical department within the company, announced that we would ALL resign immediately if they went forward with such a draconian and potentially unconstitutional job requirement. THEY BACKED DOWN and the half-baked authoritarian idea went into the waste basket where it should have been in the first place.
Having already developed these Big Brother-like software apps for tyrannical places like Red China, our Big Tech now needs to create a market for them here–CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BE DAMNED.
Can’t wait to hear how the labor unions react to this one.
RATS ON A GRID. What’s next? They shock you if you get too close? Classic conditioning. Talk about 1984!
More Big Brother tactics:
“Police in the Connecticut city of Westport are testing a “pandemic drone” that will be able to tell if someone coughs, sneezes, or has a fever from 200 feet away. The city’s “pandemic drone” can deliver audio messages from officers who are watching remotely.
The drone, made by drone manufacturer Draganfly, can even monitor a person’s heart and respiratory rates. …”
Isn’t that wonderful? Will the drone ANNOUNCE that you’re contagious, potentially, so that everyone can immediately shun you as a Corona leper?

If they’re sealed indictments, it may be true. It’s very hard these days to know what is true and what’s not true. I truly do fear for our Republic.
I can’t remember who, but someone famous said “those who would give up their freedom for some safety will find they have neither.

Amazing when you look at FACTS. It becomes more and more obvious that this is a HUGE false flag to enact global government and to take down the USA. Our system of government and our individual freedoms are anathema TO the new world order. It’s way more than taking down Trump and it DOES have communist community organizer fingerprints ALL OVER IT. It’s not a coincidence that people like Kerry were flying around the world undermining our current president.
You better believe that the secondary and long-term health effects on people are horrible. We ALL NOW HAVE PTSD. What else could we have? We’re being conditioned like rats on a grid. Fear. Deprivation. Worry about family and friends with regard to their financial, health, and even survival prospects. My stress level is through the roof and I won’t bore you with details because everybody has problems these days. Just trying to cope with the stress of “hunting and gathering” to sustain my extended family is awful, coupled with the lack of sleep. EVERYBODY is now “at risk” because of the stress caused by this deliberate application of fear.

Cedars-Sinai-Developed ‘Healight’ Medical Device Platform Technology Being Studied as a Potential First-in-Class COVID-19 Treatment
Conference Call Scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 4:30 pm ET
ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / April 20, 2020 / Aytu BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ:AYTU) (the “Company”), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing novel products that address significant patient needs announced today that it has signed an exclusive worldwide license from Cedars-Sinai to develop and commercialize the Healight Platform Technology (“Healight”). This medical device technology platform, discovered and developed by scientists at Cedars-Sinai, is being studied as a potential first-in-class treatment for coronavirus
For some reason banned by twitter
short video explains the device
Dave, I was AMAZED to see this morning that my local Fox station actually carried this story and ran, I’m supposing, part or maybe all of the video about their proposed treatment. That would be the video about the device that YouTube BANNED upon request of the New York Times.
OMG. Of course, the progressives and especially all those (like Fauci?) who are invested in so many different meanings of the word are NOT interested in seeing a cheap and easy palliative for this COVID19. NO! They want (1) to make a ton of money off an expensive vaccine that they’ll likely try to force everyone to get and (2) keep the fear, hype, and lockdown going through the election that they plan to steal by absentee, early, and MAIL IN voting.
Just imagine if people can be cured of the worst effects of COVID19 simply by shining a light on the inside of their lungs! How could this possibly be more dangerous than, say, multiple CAT scans using deadly radiation? Or even, let’s surmise, the risk one takes from having yearly dental exams?
They will NEVER accept a cheap cure, which is why they also oppose hydroxychloroquine. They’re all in bed with Big Pharma and Bill Gates is invested in vaccines. So much money at stake IF they don’t get to ride to the rescue with a vaccine that will make Gates even MORE billions.
Cedars-Sinai is a very reputable place, so I dare them to say this is conspiracy theory and dangerous. Last I checked, we still have free speech in this country. It’s time for Bill Barr to issue a memo warning the social media companies about the law with regard to “in kind” political donations and INTERFERING illegally in an election to put a thumb on the scale for a particular candidate.
It doesn’t escape notice that, as I said earlier this week, Silicon Valley is full of and sometimes even run by MEN who came here from countries that have far less freedom and especially far less free speech. THESE are the people who are making decisions about CENSORING Americans in America for their free speech.
Have a Hamburger!
We could sure use this! Today I went shopping and, thanks to the hyping by all the media, there was no meat to be found for we carnivores. Of course, as with everything else Chinese virus, it all plays into the progressives’ global plans. Oh, the air is so much cleaner without cars. Oh, the sea urchins and fish can enjoy the beaches without those horrible invading human beings. Oh, we all need universal guaranteed income (who pays for it when everybody sits on their lazy ass and collects, is anyone’s guess. In Progressive Land, money just comes out their behinds!) Oh, this proves we need universal healthcare (because the British system is doing SO WELL. Check out THEIR mortality rate.) Yadda, yadda, yadda.
Jim Jordan appears on Fox News to discuss the unsealed documents released yesterday showing the FBI “small group” framing a case against former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
It’s really outrageous and even more so when you read how the media “covers” the story. They leave out pertinent FACTS like that the 302s were disappeared and somehow McCabe knew details of an interview where he wasn’t even present and he wrote about them in his new book but no documents were turned over under subpoena, when documents are the only way he’d know such details! They leave out that these particular documents were subpoenaed but were NOT turned over either to Flynn’s defense attorneys (a crime) or to congressional committees (another crime), but apparently WERE in Mueller’s records (they’re stamped as being from his records) and yet Mueller himself didn’t turn these documents over to anybody who had subpoenaed them (like courts, Flynn’s defense, Congress), which is likely another crime. Nor did anyone who knew about their existence apprise any authority of the FACT of their existence. (Sounds like a potential crime to me–conspiracy to defraud a court, for example? I’m no lawyer but seems I’ve heard of that charge. Possibly conspiracy to violate Flynn’s constitutional rights–that sounds like a federal crime to me.) We want to see the orange jumpsuits and the frog marching SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
need a mask?
Nice. I was forced to bone up on my hand sewing skills to make masks for my family. That’s where I’ve been the past few days. My sewing machine went kaput so it was back to the skills I learned at Granny’s knee.
I can’t believe it, although I should by now be able to. The mainstream media are actually SIDING WITH CHINA and blaming Trump instead of China. They’re making excuses for the FACT that China deliberately did not tell other countries about the virus until after they’d been able to try to corner the market on masks and other protective gear. (That’s best case scenario.) An AP story I read today actually said that other countries would have done the same thing to protect their people! Making excuses for China, who let other people sicken and die so they could protect their own first. People who would not have sickened and died, perhaps, had CHINA been TRUTHFUL about the person-to-person spread that they KNEW was happening. IF they’d told the truth, then travel would have been suspended and thousands would have lived. But instead, this is FACT, they shut down domestic travel but allowed their infected citizens to travel internationally. EXPLAIN THAT ONE, AP.
Hope we see some people come back soon,
Now for something completely not about politics and disease, I always wondered what that song “she’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes was about
I felt it had a deeper, maybe creepy, meaning. So this morning I researched it.
“She” is a pronoun that can mean maybe a locomotive like in “she’s mighty powerful” Doesn’t have to mean a woman.
Apparently there was a spiritual round about 1800 meaning the chariot will be coming
this article says it’s the same melody.
She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain, often regarded as children’s ditty. The first printed version of the song appeared in 1927 in Carl Sandburg’s The American Songbag, although the song is much older.
Some theories argue that the song is exactly what it sounds like: celebrating the arrival of a supply train. Others believe it’s a metaphor for Mary Harris “Mother” Jones organizing coal miner labor unions. But the real origin is even darker: She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain is actually based on a slave-era spiritual called When the Chariot Comes. The two songs share the same melody, structure and even some lyrics — the iconic “when she comes” chant is present in both versions.
Notably different, though, are original lyrics like “King Jesus, he’ll be driver when she comes” and “She’ll be loaded with bright angels when she comes.” “When the Chariot Comes” and, by extension, “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain,” are both songs about the Rapture — the day when Jesus comes back to earth to play favorites. “She” actually refers to the chariot he’ll be riding down to bring about the End of Days. (from 5 Terrifying Origin Stories Behind Popular Children’s Songs)
I had a dream about that once.
God said “come on”
In the dream I said 2I have to go back and get my coat”
It terrified me.
50 years it took to realise I didn’t have to be frightened
Mysterious ways – they say
Yeah, I agree. I miss a lot of the regulars. Of course, because of this pandemic and other events in my immediate and extended family, I’m not able to be on as much as I was before. I still hope and pray Zen is fine, just hunkered down by circumstances.
Thanks for the story about that song. I vaguely remember being taught that it was about a train, too. But the story about the chariot coming to “get you” makes sense, especially about the “bright angels.” There’s a painting in our local art museum of the chariot coming to pick up some poor (black) soul, so there’s much to be said for the implications about that song.

c u in court
There is truly a lot of crazy stuff going on, that defies explanation. A woman sentenced to 7 days in jail for opening her hair salon, while at the same time they’re letting violent criminals out of jail so THEY don’t catch coronavirus. It’s questionable whether these local officials even have the authority to issue these orders, much less use law enforcement or the courts to enforce them. In CA, I believe it was CA, a judge AGREED that the governor has no authority to give federal relief money to ILLEGAL ALIENS, but the judge said he wouldn’t stop the governor from BREAKING THE LAW! iirc, he claimed the emergency made it okay to hand out money illegally to illegal aliens. There are lawsuits, MUCH belated, finally challenging these local officials. In MO, for example, only the STATE health department can issue orders and none of the local authorities can make rules that go against what the state authorities say. Despite the LAW, the local authorities, mostly all DemoncRAT in the big cities, are defying the governor (AND TRUMP, of course) and keeping the lockdown orders going until the latter part of May, if even then. The lawsuit WILL prevail because the LAW is on the side of the plaintiffs. However, insanely, the media are accusing the lawyer who’s handling the lawsuit of potentially having blood on his hands and not caring if people DIE because he’s rightfully insisting on making elected people FOLLOW THE DAMNED LAW! The progressives have gone off the deep end and are full tilt HITLERS now. I hope that people WAKE UP and see what sort of tyranny is in store for them if they are stupid enough to EVER vote DemoncRAT again.
Know what’s weird here in my city? ALL of the hospitals are furloughing big portions of their staff NOW, after the alleged pandemic is allegedly winding down and just as (supposedly) “elective” surgeries and other treatments (like chemo!) will once again be allowed. So during the terrible epidemic, which never really materialized here, staff were all on the payroll, presumably on premises, but doing things like making You Tube videos or gathering (as many as 50) to “see off” a so-called recovered patient. NOW that they’re going to have “customers” again, they’re laying off half their staffs because they lost so much money by not bothering to treat anybody else for any other problem other than coronavirus which, again, did NOT test the facilities at all. They had plenty of ICU beds. Plenty of ventilators. No more patients than any normal flu epidemic. So now they’re laying people off for the next two months! Why?
At the risk of being a bit boring, I am going to explain the JET engine.
Chemical explosion produces heat. Heat causes the air pressure to vastly increase. Where does the high pressure air go?
Anywhere it can.
In a gun, the rifle tube is pretty sealed at the back and the round contains all the chemicals it needs to create a high temperature high pressure situation that pushes the payload forwards. Simple concept, guns from the 1700’s.
Next came the rocket engine. Combustive chemicals are injected by a high pressure pump into a so-called combustion chamber. Hydrazine and red nitric acid, liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen, take your pick. The rocket carries them as liquid fuel and squirts them into the combustion chamber where the air is now at 10000 psi. Atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psi.
But the jet engine is an air breather. There is only one fuel, usually kerosene. The oxygen needs to come in from the outside air.
Here’s the problem. You have a combustion chamber running at 10000 psi, why wouldn’t that air just blow out any way it can.
That won’t work. For this to work a compressor takes air from outside,and raises it’s pressure to 10000 psi and forces it into the combustion chamber
where kerosene is added and a much larger flow of exhaust gasses shoots out the rear of jet engine.
How do you design such a high pressure TURBINE.?
Not my field but the engineering technology was incredible and took decades.AND POLITICANS DARE TO TELL ME THEY UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION
There’s one last thing to explain. Forward motion is no caused by hot air rushing out the back of the engine. It is caused by the 10000 psi pushing against the front of the combustion chamber. In a rocket you can visualize that. In the JET engine the force is applied to the turbine blades and the bearings. So you only need to make a turbine fan that can move vast quantities of air against high pressure but make bearings that can sustain that force as well
AND POLITICANS DARE TO TELL ME THEY UNDERSTAND THE SITUATION
I love your explanations of things scientific. I always learn something new and interesting. I don’t believe that in today’s world we would have a scientific revolution, as we had in the past. It’s a sad state of affairs. Kids are stupider than ever. Maybe not stupid–ignorant. Because of the poor state of our schools. Look at the level of “competence” in our institutions. The incompetence on exhibit during this latest crisis is a perfect example. SOCIAL promotion on display. Idiots running the vaccine research. RACIST idiots, at that. In the very institutions where vulnerable people SHOULD BE THE SAFEST, they were sitting ducks for the virus BECAUSE OF THE INCOMPETENCE OF THE STAFF. Incompetence or criminal negligence. IF health care “professionals” do NOT know how to stop contagion, then who does? IF a person is not safe in “quarantine” in a nursing home or a hospital, then where is a person safe? We, as vulnerable patients, depend upon doctors, nurses, CNAs, etc. FOLLOWING THE PROTOCOLS to keep from spreading contagion from patient to patient. HOW was it possible, how was it allowed to happen, that in one case a nursing home had something like 40 infected staff, 70 infected patients, and 29 dead patients as a result? I read a story in the paper about a CNA who was protrayed as a “victim” because she died of COVID. Now, while it’s sad to hear of her death, her family is defending the FACT that she went to work KNOWING that she was probably contagious. She complained of symptoms and was given a test but not only did SHE continue to work, apparently the nursing home ALLOWED HER to keep coming to work where she infected patients! Now the family is complaining AS IF the home is responsible for her death and nothing is mentioned either by the family or by the sympathetic media reporter about all the poor people SHE potentially infected, perhaps even killed, or HER RESPONSIBILITY in it. They EXCUSE her criminal irresponsibility by saying that she needed her salary! Somehow, there’s NO OVERSIGHT. Nobody takes responsibility. What they’re going to do, however, is try to blame Trump. The meme is that these people HAD TO WORK WITHOUT masks and gloves, etc., and that’s Trump’s fault. Mind you, ANY medical facility is obviously responsible to see that their own employees have enough PPE to handle any situation. Failing that, it’s the responsibility of the local health dept., the county health dept., the STATE health dept. It’s NOT the responsibility of the president to micromanage every damned nursing home in the country! It’s infuriating. But this is what a lack of discipline, a diffusion of responsibility, social promotion, dumbing down educational programs will get you.

But all the sad deaths did not need to happen.

Do we have gravitational wave generators. Hmmmm. But suppose I knew how to do that and for some reason I kept it quiet
and I didn’t share it with the world,
Would I be guilty for the deaths of billions, if war occurred?
I think, yeah, I would
I don’t dare to know the Heart of God but I sure as hell wouldn’t want to try to explain it.
I agree with you about that snake. He’s been deep in on this from the beginning. Puzzling to see Trump go back today on his statement about disbanding the task force. So is Fauci still going to be on it? It looked for a while as if he’s “promoting” Birx above Fauci, which would be a good move, imho. She’s at least deferential and politic and seems to know which side her bread is buttered on. Fauci, on the other hand, is a deep state resistance warrior. I’m convinced of that. There are more stories out there showing what he’s been up to all these years and how tight he was with the Clintons, especially. When a guy is nearing 80, I don’t see WHY the hell he still is in the administration. Or even in government. In my state, there are age limits when people MUST retire. Why is the federal government an exception (apparently)? He’s been all over the place, changing his tune from day to day. He’s DEFENDING the Chinese, probably because he MUST. He reminds me of the former Obama administration people when they realized that a new sheriff would be in town who could SEE and EXPOSE what they’d done illegal for all these years. Thus, the “insurance policy” and the “resistance” was born.
Now today there’s ANOTHER “whistleblower” besides that scientist who falsely claims he was reassigned because he opposed Trump’s hyping of chloroquine. iirc, this guy was already given accolades for being the guy who solicited and received the free donations of chloroquine to use against COVID. So explain that one.
The new “whistleblower” is supposedly a “volunteer” on Kushner’s project to get PPEs for the country. This person went straight to the House committee, of course, which tells you where the person’s politics lie. That’s why the person INFILTRATED the team in the first place, would be my guess. SPIES in every office, team, project in the entire administration and somehow they can’t bother to adequately VET these people. Under what scenario does a VOLUNTEER have any standing to be a government “whistleblower” in the first place? I don’t want to EVER see a Democrat president again, but it would be interesting to learn if there would be the same level of resistance and SPYING on that president, with a complicit media eager to expose EVERY speculative allegation. We know the answer, don’t we?
I begin to wonder how many sad deaths there even have been. People are dying from their underlying conditions. Deaths from OTHER causes than COVID are mysteriously going down. When they crunch the numbers and ensure that the cause of death is accurate, then the number of COVID deaths is cut in half! Which of course would explain why other causes are dropping–they’re attributing every death possible to the virus instead of to the actual reason the person died.
I’m not trying to diminish the sadness of the epidemic, but even in cases where someone young has succumbed, most of the time it was a preventable death because the person had underlying conditions and many of those conditions resulted from the person’s own behavior (e.g., poor diet leading to obesity and diabetes, lack of exercise, conditions that result from diabetes–heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, etc.). These are the same people who succumb to flu. The regular flu, not the deadly ones like Spanish flu.
How wonderful would it be if you could invent your wave to neutralize all bombs? Yes, you would need to share that with the world but the sad truth is that likely somebody would stop you. Like happened with Seth Rich, I mean.
yes and many others have made that sacrifice
