“Safe” is one of the most misused words in our modern lexicon. We surrendered many of our rights after 9/11 to keep us “safe” from Islamic terrorists, while we kept right on importing Muslims. Now we are locking ourselves in our homes and letting our loved ones die in isolation to keep ourselves “safe” from the Chinese coronavirus. But at what cost? Tucker has a couple of numbers that should make you angry….
522 children between the ages of 5 and 14 died of suicide in 2017.
42 children of that age have died of coronavirus (allegedly) in 2020.
How many kids will have committed suicide in 2020 due to being isolated from friends?
Watch the whole thing but the simple truth of the matter is this: there are plenty of things far more dangerous than the coronavirus.
If there ever is an honest accounting of the real impact of the lockdowns and social distancing, something I doubt will happen, it will show that we were lied into a panic that cost us far more as human beings than the few lives we might have saved.
How many people died in nursing homes, not seeing a single one of their family members for nearly a year?
A lot of Amish won't go to the hospital for fear of dying alone, they would rather take their chances at home.
I know you mentioned at one point that the Amish in your area are living life as they normally would in the midst of this "pandemic." Have you or anyone you know noticed whether they are being impacted much by the virus?
It is very minimal. A few older people died *with* the 'vid but were in poor health already. One older man I know is in the hospital, he is 80 but in decent health, and he wants to get the hell out of there because he is so lonely. He would rather die at home than be locked up in a hospital room without visitors. They understand it is serious but refuse to live in fear.
Personally, I know of one morbidly obese 60ish year old man here dying and one chronic smoker also in his 60's. I know several others in the area have died but the draconian reaction of public health officials is over the top. In our factory we have had several employees get it but none have yet had severe reactions that require hospitalization.
It is absolutely a serious disease but not one that warrants shutting down an entire country, unless of course the pandemic is mostly cover for other stuff like getting rid of Orange Man Bad and providing the excuse for the Great Reset.
