As the COVID-19 panic goes on and on and on, one question remains to which I’ve never heard an answer.
What is so uniquely deadly about this disease that it justified the unprecedented step of shutting down our national economy and forcing everybody into face masks?
Okay, we started out with computer models, now known to be chock-full of errors, that predicted that at least 2 million of us were going to die. When that turned out to be untrue, our leaders continued the policies based on those models. Here we are, carrying on like this was the Black Death revisited–and it’s not true. So why are we still wearing masks? Why are we still counting it as a COVID-19 death if a window-washer falls off his scaffold and goes splat on the sidewalk?
And why are we using the virus as a reason to debauch our national elections with problematic, and very likely dishonest, mail-in voting? Are we going to do this, from now on, whenever a new strain of flu comes along?
This must never happen again; and governors and mayors who used COVID-19 as an excuse to behave like Third World dictators must be held to account.
