Today we have roughly 170,000 deaths from Covids-19 in the USA. The overwhelming the number of these deaths were due to high risk patients. Almost none of the fatalities were children. That’s bad, I admit, but not nearly as bad as deaths from heart disease: 635,260. Cancer: 598,038. Covid’s isn’t even in the same ballpark and those other illnesses happen year after year and we nary bat an eye. Yet for COVID’s we are will to killing an economy and thus destroy the lives of 300-325M Americans.
Now contrast this 170K against the number of people who die every year, from all ages, from preventable mistakes in the hospital, estimated at 440K annually. Have you heard much said about that number? How does that compare to the number of preventable deaths caused by the police. That would be about 440,000 to about 50 and only about 5-6 annually qualify as an illegal homicide. Now hold that thought.
Lets say you were a space alien and you just landed in America. Then you saw what we are doing to our country over COVIDs, the rioting, crazy city councils, groups like ANTIFA and BLM, you might conclude there’s a whole lot of stupid in America. Dangerous levels of stupid. You might want to get right back in your space ship and leave before this place blows up and this is without even meeting Donald Trump or Joe Biden.
