Going Slow

Came up with an idea the other that would save untold lives. We need to never exceed 20 mph in a motor vehicle. In general, we have over 35 thousand deaths attributed to auto-accidents each year in this country. Driving at the top limit of 20 mph might not save all these lives, but it would save the vast majority of them.

Also, we need houses with one foot walls of steel reinforced concrete. It would be expensive, but think of all those who die yearly, in their own houses. This would vastly decrease the lost of lives due to fire, falling trees, tornadoes and hurricanes. By the way, we would want to make sure those houses are ten or fifteen feet above the ground to avoid deaths by flood.

All highways and public buildings should be built to withstand 12 on the Richter Scale. This would virtual save all lives from earthquakes.

Okay. I’m being flippant. Certainly you have figured that out. Yet, almost daily, we hear the phrase, safety first. In truth we really don’t mean that. If we did, our lives would be radically different. Every day, we make compromises. Because we don’t want to spend an hour or two going to work each day, we go at speeds of 55 to 65 mph. To be sure, it is an unnecessary chance. However, those of us with families would like to see them now and then so we travel at the higher speed.

The house idea would save lives. However, it would like cost 4 or 5 times more. Again we compromise. Most of us don’t sustain house damage so we have learned to take the risk. If buildings had to be built to withstand all earthquakes, we would certainly be better off but hardly anyone would be able to live in them.

Every day, we make life/death decisions. Sometimes people do die.

I had heart surgery. They did four bypasses on me. They put an IV in my arm and the next thing I knew I woke up with a horrible pain in my chest. I made a life/death decision. The doctor that worked on me knew what he was doing and he had a very good reputation. He obviously did it right, because that was about twelve years ago.

It took some time after they came up with the vaccine that I had the opportunity to get it. But I did get it. That too was a life and death decision. None of the vaccines are fully approved. We, as people with brains, made decisions knowing this. If it were safety first, very few of us would have the vaccinations. That does not give the government or anyone the right to chose for us. It is a life/death decision which we mush make for ourselves, just as I did when I decided for the bypass surgery.

Well, actually, there is a difference. The surgery was totally accepted. It was not experimental and I was still given the choice.

To be sure, maybe it is time for government and media to stop telling us what to do or not do. They can give me the pros and cons, but I still had to sign that paper before they could put me under. Should it be any different for an experimental shot.

A Whole Lot of Disseminating Going On

Something to remember about disseminating info.

When someone is disseminating accurate info, or likey accurate info and you keep them from disseminating it while claiming it is not accurate, in effect you are disseminating a lie. In some cases, this might involve the lives of people.

Well, let’s see, the FOCs and their social media refused to let out the info on the lab production of the China virus, for over six months. They derided the Hydrocortisone only to find out it was effective in the early treatment of the virus. It would seem that one cost a few thousand lives. Then again, they don’t care. It was all about making the president look bad. I mean, how can they win the election when President Trump is doing such a good job.

Then there is the mask theory. Personally, I believe they do a little good, though I suspect it is hard to prove. There is no way a mask will stop a virus 100 thousands of an inch in diameter. Occasionally one will get caught on a fiber but if the virus is in the air it will go through that mask as if the mask isn’t there. The only way it might work is by catching droplets that contain the virus. I have no idea how effective that would be.

Let’s not forget the thing about Black Lives Matter. Sorry, the statement elevates African-Americans above all others, including Latinos Indians Israelis and Asians. (Sorry if I left any out.) Moreover, the statement has holes in it. No one in the organization seems to mind when one Black man shoots another, even if the other is only 1 or 2 years old. If some ninety year old black woman is killed, it doesn’t matter because she was not killed by a white policeman. If Black lives matter, then they matter, and they do, why don’t they matter when abortionists kill them, at the beginning of life.

These social media, AKA Big Tech, have a lot of blood on their hands. People genuinely try to save lives and big tech destroys these people, thereby disseminating bad info, thereby , in effect, killing people. We are not talking two or three lives. We are not talking hundreds, but thousands.

But then their lives matter not, no matter what their color they are. It is truly about the power. When it is discovered that the social media made a mistake, there is no apology. There is no one who pays a price. They simply make the change so that people can again make posts about the virus starting in the lab.

There is to be that there is one person who has truly disseminated bogus info for over a year and in a criminal way. Why is Fauci not in prison yet? Why isn’t he wearing an orange jumpsuit?

What They Don’t Say

Something I have repeated a number of times is that the most successful way to fool someone is not so much by what is said, but by what is not said. It is certainly one of Satan’s most effective methods. When he was tempting Jesus, he quoted scripture, the ultimate truth. However, Jesus quoted scripture back at him, the parts that Satan decided to leave out.

And so it is that, repeatedly, I hear the covid19 stats quoted over the TV and radio. They keep talking about how the infection rate is climbing. On some occasions they point out that the hospitals are getting crowded.

They like to leave out the part that the rate is partially increasing because of the large number of tests run daily. I say, partially, because, some of the increase is real. However, the increase is not as great as the numbers would indicate, not nearly. If you’ll recall, the City of New York was running out of beds. It is only recently that the city had to open the emergency hospital built by President Trump earlier.

I don’t know, but my best guess, for what it is worth is that the real increase is about 30-40% of the apparent increase. This can be guessed by the number of cases that result in hospitalizations.

There is, however, another far more important deception. In every instance that they report the deaths, it is the accumulative deaths. I have never heard anything about the daily deaths. Guess what? It is has been under 2000 a day for the last few weeks. There were several days that it was at or around 800.

Any number of deaths is bad, to be sure. There is no need to repeat the overused statement. However, in this case, it was a stat purposely left out to deceive you. Considering there are 230 million in the US, if my math is right, that is less than 5 people per million.

I don’t like reducing people to statistics, but it is the democrats that insist on it. Every day they shout them from the highest hilltop. The problem is that they don’t call the whole truth out. They like to keep part of it from us.

When I sat down to write this, the first thing I did was to look up the stats. It took me about 20 minutes to find our the daily deaths. It seems no one wants me, or anyone to know the little secret. It might not be hidden, but it isn’t well displayed either.

What does all this mean? Guess what? The doctors are figuring it out. They are finding meds that work. They are finding ways of fighting off the horrid virus.

Oh! One more thing! There is nothing in the stats that explains how many died of other ailments, or maybe even accidents. Such things have a tendency to skew the facts.

So next time a democrat tells you something, you just might want to ask yourself just what it is they are not telling you?

The Numbers Don’t Lie

They keep saying that hydroxycloroquine is not effective.  Consider this: Uganda has a population of 42.72 million and has only two deaths from coronavirus.  They have had a total of 1147 cases and 117 active cases.

Where in is their success?  They commonly take the previously mentioned medicine… for malaria.

The point is this.  One day, the research will be done.  One day they will be able to say positively one way or the other.  In the meantime, thousands die.  What if they find out that the medicine would have prevented 90% or even 80% of the deaths?  Who will answer for that tragedy?  Who will pay the price for the decision?  Who will comfort the friends and relatives of those we could have saved?
