  1. Every word is true, @rushbabe.
    Summer is here. It’s like if her friends bring cake, balloons, streamers into the hospital room of a dying person.  She sits up, she smiles, she ventures to eat and drink.  Her friends laugh and sing, they resolutely ignore the fact that the person being fêted is still, after all, lying in a hospital bed with tubes and oxygen hooked up.

    Visiting hours will be over and she’ll be alone in the semi-dark again, seeing only the sterile blue glow of the machines, hearing only their tonal warnings.

    Winter will come again and America will be back in bed, dependent on artificial lifelines.

    And like you, I find the most distressing thing to be the ease, the incredible speed, with which we were all confined merely by governmental fiat. When did we cease to be the land of the free, home of the brave?

    Thanks for posting this my sister!

  2. What is worrying is how easy it has been for the Political Class to get the great majority of people to go along with the scam.  Even a quick perusal of publicly-available data shows that actual morbidity associated with Covid-19 was comparable to the annual flu and has now declined to a very low level.  A deeper dive shows that wearing masks has no proven benefits.  The economic damage from the Lock Downs is not instantaneous, but is growing to a society-threatening level.

    Yet all of that is ignored.  The Far Left’s Long March Through The Institutions has been an overwhelming success — and now we will all pay the price.

    Meanwhile, check out recent videos from China.  Life for most Chinese is pretty much back to normal.  China has survived the virus that started there quite well, thank you.  Meanwhile, the West is on its knees and still sinking.  Just coincidence, I am sure.

  3. Another rant — the media drones on endlessly about “cases”, as if increasing “cases” were a Bad Thing.  Generally, a “case” means that the person is developing a natural immunity to the virus through exposure.  Very few of the reported “cases” involve actual sickness, or require hospitalization, and even fewer lead to death.  Reality is — the more “cases”, the better!

    Within living memory, if a child came down with chicken pox, the neighbors would send their kids over for a sleep-over with the infected child.  Good parents wanted their children to develop immunity by becoming a “case”.

  4. The cure for America’s ills is Pol Pot’s subsistence agrarian Socialism based upon the dignity of labor not the stink of burning fuels.  Every grain of wheat will feed 100 people!  That is what Slow Joe Biden  means to me.

    Bad citation.  The ChiComs do not care how many of their people die from the Wuhan Virus.  Their people do not know how many cases or deaths there have been from Wuhan Virus.  The ChiComs want a “business as usual” posture, so business as usual is what they get from an ignorant populace.

    There is no good reason to deceive yourself by looking at China.

  6. MJBubba:  “There is no good reason to deceive yourself by looking at China.

    Respectfully, I must suggest that most of us in the West are misunderstimating China along many dimensions.

    We choose not to realize how fast China has raised the living standards of hundreds of millions of its people.   We choose to ignore that educational standards in China are now generally exceeding those in the West.  We fail to note the rapidly growing number of Chinese names on research papers and patents.  We don’t understand that China’s infrastructure is now more modern & better than much of the infrastructure in the West.  We don’t pay attention to the reality that many essentials for our good life in the West can now only be manufactured in China.   We don’t know about the huge internal Chinese tourist market with stunning recreational facilities.  And we don’t realize that in many ways China’s internal economy is more efficient & market-oriented than ours in the socializing West.

    Of course we should not believe any statistics on “cases” or deaths from Covid-19 from Chinese authorities.  Nor should we believe any similar statistics coming from Western governments, where the victim of a motor cycle crash can be listed as a Covid-19 related death.

    What we should realize is that China’s leaders have played their cards very well over the last quarter of a century, on everything from trade deals to virus scams.  They have cunningly taken advantage of our pride & arrogance while they have steadily forged ahead.  We are going to pay a heavy price for that someday.
