The government's OVER REACTION is....

Members Only
Our government's over reaction is going to literally destroy and kill far more lives than this normal virus will ever. People will suffer from depression, domestic violence, child abuse, drug addiction, alcoholism, crimes of theft, suicides, bankruptcy, starvation, etc...

Why? Because a very small percentage of people who were old and weak to begin with are dying. They would have died with likely any type of illness that came their way.

Our government is currently acting like a puppet and the people are pulling the strings caused by irrational fear driven by the media.

This should be classified as CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT. Our civil liberties and freedoms are being stripped and not many are questioning out of irrational fear.

Why is everyone being told to stay home? if you are sick, stay home, if you are afraid of being sick or one of the weak, stay home. Dont make everyone else do it.

it is time to flip this coin over and turn the corner. Shut the media off and this will go away. it will if you do that. That is how it got here

people were so concerned about losing their freedoms before all of this happened and they forgot about freedom of speech and freedom to ask questions. What people should be concerned with is the fact that asking questions has become something which is viewed with fear . Critical thinking has been demonized. This in itself is far more scary than the virus itself. What's wrong with asking questions? Why should we not investigate? Are we to blindly follow without knowing exactly what's going on?

Still no lockdown in Sweden

"Radio stations broadcast prevention messages to wash hands frequently and to avoid touching one's face. The watchword: be careful. And also, "behave like adults" but above all else "don’t panic", in the words of the Prime Minister himself, Mr. Löfven, member of the Social Democratic Workers Party. It seems to be all a matter of "trust", of which Swedes are very capable, as is put into focus in an analysis by Foreign Policy

….and lest we forget the wisely words of Benjamin Franklin who said:

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

You can always recognize a socialist, he's the guy who turns up at your door to help you ….along with his squad of gunmen.

Again, your gyno-centric view point will lead us to ruin, its NOT a balanced perspective.

Do you recognize that we are being marched towards a new form of Stalinism?

Do you actually think or do you just rabbit college indoctrination camp rhetoric?

Wake up!

Our liberty and prosperity are in peril if COVID-19 triggers an arms race of compassion

Since the first responsibility of the state is to protect its citizens, it is understandable why, faced with a pandemic on a scale not seen since 1918, drastic measures have been taken to try to keep loss of life to a minimum. However, some of the emergency policies launched to respond to the coronavirus pandemic could remain in place and that will more deeply entrench government across the economy and civil society.

Political leaders face two challenges: first, to judge carefully when restrictions can be lifted and to strike a balance between the damage caused by the virus and that caused by economic ruin; second, to ensure those restrictions do not leave a legacy in liberal societies, but are removed so society can proceed as before. This won’t be popular to read in certain circles, but the enthusiasm with which some governments – at home and abroad – have decided to print money and increase police powers has been disturbing.

When police accost people sunbathing alone – or use drones to monitor people walking on hillsides (as they have done in England) – people are entitled to be outraged. The delight some police take in asserting the powers the state gives them is uncomfortably clear.

The coronavirus pandemic is a grave moment in human history. But it should not be prove to be a pivotal one, becoming a moment where society changes profoundly and permanently. Once the main threat has passed, restoring the liberty of citizens to go where they wish on public property, when they wish, and with whom they wish may prove the least of the problems for society. It will be far more difficult for governments to remove wage subsidies, reduce debt and restabilise economies. For one thing, some workers will be seduced by the new dispensation, unaware that the cost to supposedly richer taxpayers is nothing compared with the cost to the future of the economy. For another thing, the socialist that seems to exist within even supposedly liberal, free-market politicians finds it so easy to prevail, because those politicians feel it gives them an acceptable degree of serious power.

This sits at odds with true liberals – that is, those who believe that the function of governments is to find ways of distributing power from the state to the people. The pandemic has forced the closure of many businesses in every economy. Some of the smaller and more vulnerable ones will never reopen. Once the grave threat from the pandemic has passed, governments should do everything possible to ensure a minimum level of regulation so the next wave of entrepreneurs can enter the marketplace as easily as possible. This means resisting the temptation to increase taxes, which would stifle innovation, retard the recovery and risk drawing the world into a 1930s-style depression. Of course, businesses have generally supported the widespread subsidy of wages around the world while they are closed. It means they can afford to retain staff and not have their employees’ hardship on their conscience. However, these can only ever be emergency measures. The destruction of prosperity and personal liberty that would come from their retention should be easy for any businessman or woman to understand.

The death rate in Covid-19 patients ages 80 and over was 10.4%, compared to


5.35% in 70-somethings,

1.51% in patients 60 to 69,

0.37% in 50-somethings.


Even lower rates were seen in younger people, dropping to zero in those 29 and younger.


Note - nearly all the older people had pre-existing illnesses while a significant percentage of the under 70's did also.

It is pretty obvious that this sample size will get larger and larger while the sample size with flu is already set. Look at CDC stats (source was provided).

You already had a message with calling me and people like me low IQ with no critical thinking skills. People who respect themsleves do not stoop down to name calling and insults. One instance of such behaviour was bad enough but twice is completely unacceptable.

If you want to debate, stick to issues, arguments, and evidence.

I draw a line for such behaviour. I do not talk to people who do not have self-respect and respect for others and who insult others. Stop communicating with me.

Please read Blog rules and follow them at least for others.

Thank you

You do realize that a sample size of 6000 deaths is still too small to produce a statistically significant result in terms of age right?

Some stats....

COVID-19:

Approximately 48,320 deaths reported worldwide; 5,137 deaths in the U.S., as of Apr. 2, 2020.

* Flu:

291,000 to 646,000 deaths worldwide; 12,000 to 61,000 deaths in the U.S. per year.

So typically as many as 61,000 people die from flu in the US each year.

The test question ….

Should the global economy shut down if it would mean saving ONE human life?

shines a light on the level of your rational thinking and dare I say, theres good reason why you refuse to answer it. .

You may want to play around with this model to find your own point on FL and other states in the US:

https://covidactnow.org/state/FL

"What is Covid Act Now?

Covid Act Now was started by four volunteers who saw the explosive and deadly growth of COVID infections around the world and felt they had to do something.

The Covid Act Now team has partnered with some of America’s preeminent epidemiologists and data scientists to develop the U.S. Intervention Model. The U.S. Intervention Model is a data platform that projects COVID infections, hospitalizations, and deaths across the United States, as well as model how public health interventions contain the spread of COVID. We help decision makers understand when and how COVID will affect their communities in order to make better decisions that save lives.

Our U.S. Intervention Model is being used at every level of government across the U.S., the military, private sector, and more. The model has also been used by several countries around the world, including India.

Who made Covid Act Now? Covid Act Now is a distributed team of volunteers working with some of the nation’s preeminent epidemiologists and public health experts.

CoVidActNow was founded by Max Henderson, Rep Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, Igor Kofman, and Zack Rosen, with medical and policy guidance from Dr. Nirav Shah.

Who supports, endorses or validates your work? Our work has been validated and endorsed by a number of experts in epidemiology, public health, and medicine.

Why did we build it? We built covidactnow.org to solve an urgent problem: If we try to fight COVID in the present we will lose. We can only beat COVID by understanding what it will do in the future. Our leaders need a forecasting tool to better understand the future spread of COVID. We are building that tool. "

you are exactly right.

This definition also puts a blame on elderly people like they are the ones now creating all these issues for the rest who are not elderly.

The us-against-them mentality is rather intellectually underdeveloped type thinking. We will all one day if we are lucky become part of the elderly population. Understand that all of us in some way and on some level are connected whether you like it or not there for your attempt and separating yourself as a superior being from others is somewhat prehistoric and simplistic
