Question!

The Black Death: The Greatest Catastrophe Ever | History Today

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.

  1. The most frequent answer I’ve heard to the questions you ask in your second and third paragraphs is one word: Trump. (By which they mean anti-Trump.) The next most frequent is also one word: politics.

    And maybe I’m being too defeatist, but I honestly can’t see any way to fight back. The people who’ve done this to us aren’t going to let go of the power that they’ve achieved. We can vote all we want to, but they’ve already begun arranging things so our votes against them won’t count. Or if we do manage to vote them out of office and vote different kinds of people in, what’s to stop the people who wrecked our country once because they wanted to get rid of the people (person) we’d voted for from doing it again?

    As I’ve said before, any time I hear someone say we’re in the end times, I shake my head sadly and think, “We should be so lucky.” 🙁

    1. Never give in, never surrender to college idiots, cheap corrupt politicians, lying pantywaist noozies, or brain-dead celebrities.

  2. We are being played like violins (or they are attempting to) by the “deep state” and the desperate attempt to get us all under their thumbs, behaving like small children, doing what we are told by those who know better. (yeah, right)

    1. Wearing cloth masks is a bad joke – they are useless. As I go around stores in my town, the workers are wearing their cloth masks on their chin to get relief from the discomfort, not to mention the need for oxygen. How do they expect elementary children to wear them all day at school? The teacher’s time will be taken up with “Johnny, put your mask on properly,” Now Joe Biden promises to make mask wearing mandatory every time we go outside – it’s mask madness!
