Now, my additional comments.
Fact: so far the “sky-is-falling” models have grossly over-stated the severity of the Corona Virus epidemic.
Fact: we have caused untold damage to country’s economy and psyche.
Fact: other causes of death have mysteriously plummeted in the US. Over-counting of Covid deaths?
Fact: to date Covid has caused far fewer deaths in the US than a normal, not severe flu.
Fact: healthy people rarely die or even get sick from Covid.
Fact: leftists in state and local government are taking advantage of this “crisis” to pass illegal and unconstitutional edicts. Perhaps the country’s worst offender is Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer.
Speculation: when this is over we will view this as one of the greatest cons ever to be foisted upon the American people. I rarely deal in absolutes but I say it is at least 50/50 that this is the result. The “models” predicting a million deaths, then 200,000 “best case” are now at 60,000, and I will take the “under”. We have hurt many people financially, mentally and physically. People will die (or already have) because of our reaction to Covid, not IN SPITE OF it. We have bankrupted businesses, we have ruined the school year for our children and young adults, we have handed over our many freedoms, and on and on. We have allowed medical bureaucrats and corrupt politicians to take over the country, all the while lining their pockets and grabbing power.
Nobody said we have a right to a risk-free existence, but that is what many seem to be selling.
