Coronavirus Overkill, as Stats, New Facts Belie Panic

undefined

Stay home, stay away from strangers, shut down the schools and for God’s sake, whatever happens, do not touch plastic or stainless steel. That was COVID-19, April.

Now? A few hop, skip and jump days later? Oops. Oopsies. Oppose-daisies.

“Coronavirus ‘does not spread easily’ by touching surfaces or objects, CDC now says,” one USA Today headline read.

How embarrassing.

Or, if you’re a small business owner or one of the 33 million, err, 35 million, err 36 million put out of work by government’s forced closures due to COVID-19 — how #$(&&*%! unbelievable.

It was just April, after all, when the news headlines rang loud and panicky about a study from The Lancet Microbe that showed the virus was a pesky little thing that clung stubbornly to all kinds of stuff people touched daily, particularly plastic.

“Researchers behind the new study tested the virus’ life span in a 71-degree-Fahrenheit room at 65% relative humidity,” Business Insider wrote in April. “After three hours, the virus had disappeared from printing and tissue paper. It took two days for it to leave wood and cloth fabric. After four days, it was no longer detectable on glass or paper money. It lasted the longest, seven days, on stainless steel and plastic.”

COVID-19 Puts Spotlight on Science -- but Scientists Often Lie

undefined

We can beat COVID-19 — just trust the science, we’re told. Trust in the scientists, we’re told. And that’s not a paraphrase.

“From the Editors: We Can Beat COVID-19. Just Trust Science,” Wired wrote.

Well and good. Fine and dandy. But fact is, scientists often lie. Science isn’t always the beacon toward truth. It’s not just frequently flawed; it’s frequently deceptive. And purposely so.

So tossing citizens’ civil rights into the sea and allowing medical professionals and scientists to steer the COVID-19 boat may not be the best case scenario for a free America.

“Stanford researchers uncover patterns in how scientists lie about their data,” wrote Stanford News, back in late 2015.

The story went on to report how a couple of researchers “cracked the writing patterns of scientists who attempt to pass along falsified data,” a finding that gave the science world a tool to “identify falsified research before it is published.” The discovery of the pattern is one thing; the fact that the pattern had to be pursued in the first place is entirely another thing. It says, not so subtly, that falsified scientific data is so prevalent that a tool to identify — and slow the creep of — the false data was actually an in-demand item.

COVID-19 bringing devastating groupthink consequences

undefined

The most damaging and lasting effects of COVID-19 on America won’t be so much ones of physical or medical as they will be mental.

How so?

Where Americans once thought for themselves, the government has taken control. Where Americans once decided on their own, bureaucrats have seized the reins.

What’s worse is the government has successfully turned those who want to think for themselves into Public Enemy Number One.

Don’t want shut down your business, live off the taxpayer-funded stimulus dime, stay in your home, safely out of social distancing violators’ way? You’re selfish. You’re putting lives in danger. You have blood on your hands.

How dare you.

“Dallas salon owner jailed for reopening in violation of court order,” Dallas News just reported, about a woman, Shelley Luther, who defied local and state orders, judge’s restraining order, to open her Salon a la Mode to business this week.

She was also fined $7,000.

She was also treated to a sanctimonious scolding by the judge, who called her “selfish” for — well, for what? Trying to provide for her home and family?

Such is where COVID-19 madness has gone.
