“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.” – Albert Einstein
I’d really like to write about something other than this vastly overhyped plague, but since public sentiment is finally shifting towards the kind of common sense my regular readers and I have been promoting since April, I’m not about to relent at this late juncture.
You see, despite the rabble’s persistent proclamations that we’re not “experts,” every last statistical prediction on the part of my astute readers and our basic seventh-grade math has come to pass. Meanwhile, the purported medical “experts” couldn’t get it right if Michael J. Fox came back from the future just to hand them the cheat sheet.
So, let’s review!
1. Our summer COVID numbers were as good as it’s gonna get!
Anyone with half a brain knew that while the rabble took us to task for our lack of “expertise,” just like it was with Agent Orange, those insipid nanny-staters completely convinced themselves that the April-May shutdown had defeated the disease. But that’s clearly not the case, now, is it?
2. Because lockdowns don’t work!
We’ve also stressed that lockdowns only prolong that inevitable pandemic progression, and all you have to do to comprehend that blitheringly blatant truth is take a look at the current COVID numbers. Furthermore, Dr. David Nabarro of the World Health Organization recently said this:
We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus. The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources; protect your health workers who are exhausted. But by and large, we’d rather not do it.
Of course, our perpetually enraged and perplexed progressives, along with those brain-dead Democratic governors and mayors, tried to tell us that Nabarro was “taken out of context!” But that declaration is pretty bleepin’ clear to me. Apparently, they’ve forgotten that their hero, Dr. Anthony Fauci, also said “Extended lockdowns can cause irreparable damage.”
I’m just gonna keep on saying it, the movie ‘Idiocracy’ has finally come to fruition and God flippin’ help us all!
3. Lockdowns don’t work, part 2!
Has anyone noticed just how quiet progressives are on the massive spikes in all the countries they previously held out as paragons of pandemic prevention virtue? My favorite meme was the one with all those female prime minister faces that errantly tried to associate having a vagina with quality leadership.
Really? Anyone who’s ever listened to Sarah Palin talk for ten scant seconds would certainly disagree!
Germany is erupting in anti-mask protests while the Italians are protesting against further shutdowns. Iceland and Ireland, both islands, are seeing a serious COVID resurgence as is New Zealand, as that country lurches into an inevitable depression as a result of pointless and persistent closures.
It’s gotten so bad they had to import Russians fisherman to forestall the extinction of their seafood industry, and those Russians are now spreading the plague! And any further lockdowns will leave the New Zealand economy in unrecoverable ruins, too. No irony there, right?
How often have my readers and I said that the cure CAN’T be worse than the disease?
4. Further U.S. lockdowns are pointless
Because not even that blatant bully, Governor Pointless, can regulate peoples’ private lives!
As Kane County Health Department Director, Barbara Jeffers, told The First Ward and the Daily Herald, it’s the twenty-somethings primarily partying at home who are driving the Collar County spike, and if they can’t go to bars and restaurants, even more of ‘em will party at home!
We’re not talking rocket science here even though some of y’all certainly seem to think it is.
Worse yet, with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve lurking around the corner, does anyone with as much as a quarter of a brain think the “surge” is suddenly gonna get any better?
Trust me! I understand how incredibly difficult it is for the rabble to think beyond the tip of their own noses, but please do your best to consider this. If you were a 25-year-old who stands to contract an asymptomatic COVID case at worst, would you listen to a gaggle of overly obese adults intent on stealing two years of your life because they can’t figure out how to put the fork down?
No! You wouldn’t, and neither will they! In the face of a beyond bungled Illinois COVID-19 response, the only real option for at-risk folks is to protect themselves.
5. But if you won’t take care of yourself, what makes you think we will?
The medical “experts” may be too terrified to tackle this topic, but timidity has never been a weapon in the enormous arsenal of my eternal virtue.
C’mon! All it takes is the briefest of glances at the attached Governor Pritzker photo to determine the term “morbidly obese” simply won’t cut it anymore. Please don’t tell me the fact that he’s never met a fried Twinkie he didn’t like hasn’t completely clouded his perception of the lethality of this pandemic.
So, if you self-righteously refuse to put the fork down, extinguish the cigarette, take the dog for a walk, or swear off the booze until this thing burns itself out, doesn’t that make you the rank equivalent of a jerk who refuses to wear a mask at Meijer?
Since only people with comorbidity factors like obesity die of this plague, please explain why a healthy person should sit at home, or worse yet, a business should be forced to go out of business, just to protect your sorry ass when you have no intention of protecting it yourself?
That obvious truth really does give an entirely new meaning to the word “hypocrite” at a time when the word hypocrisy, like “morbid obesity,” has lost all meaning.
Since we still have at least seven points to make, and not even I want to hear myself talk this much, we’ll save them for a Thursday part two.
Meanwhile, The First Ward was dead on when we consistently claimed the Governor’s expired “emergency” powers are utterly illegal, and that decision came right here in Kane County!
¡Viva la revolución!
