The Bad Influence

I’VE SAID THIS BEFORE. MAYBE IF I SAY IT LOUDER

Covid-19 Kills a FEW PEOPLE, Yes

Not enough to affect the population of the U.S. — that would require something actually deadly.

When I say a few people, it’s relative. Compared to the 331,000,000 people in the U.S, the number who’ve died, most of whom would have died of more quotidian pre-existing conditions anyway, it’s a … tiny … number. More so, because far more new people are born per year than die from covid. And for however many are born, add in the same number again from immigration. The U.S population curve from 1960 to present is a flat curve — increasing.

How can a pandemic be killing off a population if it’s growing at exactly the same rate it was for decades leading up to this minor “pandemic.” Oh yes, it’s a real pandemic. Everybody around other people who have been exposed to covid are also exposed to it. But for all the virus particles you inhale, whether you “catch it” depends on a lot of things. BTW, it’s well known that most all of us are exposed to covid, but the experts don’t exactly want to brag that up. It goes contrary to all the gloom and doom they peddle for a living.

Speaking of which, you — we all — are exposed to thousands of viruses every day. These include older coronaviruses — you don’t think these bugs actually go away, do you? We’re built for this. We’re alive because our ancestors survived all the assorted plagues. How do we know this? Partly from genetic information stored in our bodies. Mostly because if our ancestors hadn’t survived, we wouldn’t be here.

WELL HERE I AM TALKING LOUD AGAIN. YOU WANT YOUR DENIAL, FINE. YOU WANT TO LIVE A MASKED LIFE, WITH EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD AFRAID OF EACH OTHER. YOU WANT THE ECONOMY NEEDLESSLY TRASHED? YOU WANT TO GIVE THE POWERFUL AND WEALTHY TOTAL CONTROL OVER YOUR LIVES?

FINE. YOU GOT YOUR WISH. (I DO WONDER WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR BRAIN CELLS.)
