Caronavirus

I’m sure everyone is just waiting on pins and needles to learn what I have to say about caronavirus.  Well, I have observed a thing or two.  I’m sure most of you won’t be surprised by any of them.

First, let’s look at the cold hard facts, as near as we know them.  There are roughly 300 million people in the US.  The virus has a fatality rate of about 2%.  I would suspect that it is quite a bit lower.  It is highly likely that there were many who contracted the disease who never reported it, which would throw off the calculations.  Nonetheless, let’s use the numbers we have.

That means that if everyone in the US caught the disease, roughly 10 million would die.  That would be a disaster.  It would be horrible.  However, our country would survive it.  It would leave 290 million people who would still live within our borders.

I strongly suspect that it will not be anywhere near that bad.  First, the bug kills only the old (that’s me) and those who have breathing problems to begin with.  (That’s me too.  I have COPD.)  Also, those who have compromised immune systems would be susceptible. By isolating such people, our losses would likely be less than a million.

Certainly, President Trump did a brilliant by keeping those who might be carrying the disease out of the country and he also isolated those who he permitted entrance.  Now we currently have 60 known people who were infected.  If our luck holds, it will be a long time before anyone slips into the US without our knowing it.  That gives us time, precious time.  If we can keep the epidemic at bay for about a year, it just might give those doing the research time to develop something to resolve the problem more permanently.

That means, the last thing we want to do, is to allow a swarm of people in the country who who might be carrying the virus.  That sounds like a really good reason to BUILD THE WALL!!  The last thing you want is for someone sneaking across the border and giving it to who knows how many.

That’s not the half of it.

He just might pass the virus to a few of his fellow travelers.  Even if we catch the original one, 5 or 6 of of his traveling companions could completely bypass all the efforts to keep the disease out.  Worse yet, he might have infected hundreds or even thousands.

There are dummycrats who think we should take money away from building the wall to treat those with the virus.  That’s stupid.  If the wall had been built already, it would drastically decrease the chances of anyone sneaking in.  Not only would that be effective against the caronavirus but many other diseases as well.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think keeping diseased people out of the US is a good thing.

BUILD THE WALL!!

 

Mayor Pete’s Oversight

Mayor Pete would do well to put aside his pride and remember Who ultimately makes the rules.  If he doesn’t get right with Jesus Christ before meeting Him face-to-face, homosexuality will be amoung his least conserns.  God will not likely be impressed by smart-allecy remarks, especially the ones where he implies he has some say-so in what is right or wrong.  He needs to remember that when we think we are smarter than God, we are always wrong.
