When Will They Admit They’re Wrong?
This morning brings the sad news that fully vaccinated Colin Powell has died from covid complications, and it’s not just happening to 84 year olds. A 21 year old University of Georgia student, fully vaccinated, passed away last week as well. The pro jab media loves to tell stories of dedicated anti-jabbers passing away due to Covid, but, the broader, statistical picture is both troubling — and frankly, annoying — for those of us pondering an American economy utterly ravaged by supply chain breakdowns and the possibility of Australia-style lock-downs. You may wonder why a living history/agriculture venue like us complains, non-stop, about Covid policy, but that’s a bit like asking an abused wife to stop complaining about the husband who beats her daily. Our business was nearly destroyed. We can’t find enough staff, and we can’t order parts. (Try selling as many pies as we do with one oven, the other crippled by longshoreman who are too Covid-panicked to unload the ships.) And as bad as all that is, having to hear, over and over again, that “we’re all in this together” and “vaccines save lives” makes it hard to breath with all the gas-lighting in the air. Anthony Fauci breaks wind and we’re expected to think it smells like roses.
Global health “experts,” to put it plainly, don’t seem to know what they are doing. Fauci recently worried that football games would result in more infections and increased strain on the health care system. He was wrong again. Even NBC had to admit it. The vaccines, originally thought to lower the risk of fatality from Covid, ran into real world data from Public Health England, indicating that among Covid deaths, the majority had been fully vaccinated, with fewer Covid deaths among the non-vaccinated.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, and our leaders, across the world, appear addicted to that approach. If lock-downs don’t work, lock-down harder. If vaccines don’t work, vaccinate children at no risk from the disease itself. If masks don’t work, mask up even more. As all this failure unfurls, you can count on someone–double-masked in their closet at home for the last 18 months–to shout, “if we all did exactly what we were told, this would all be over!”
We gave it a chance. It didn’t work. LEARN from your mistakes. Ponder wise “eugyppius” on this front..
(Highly vaccinated Portugal and Iceland have more COVID-19 cases than largely un-vaccinated South Africa)
I’ve been warning, for months, that you simply can’t lock down economies, you can’t scare consumers from buying and workers from showing up at the factory, without the shelves going empty. It’s happening now.
You won’t need a living history farm to reenact the Great Depression for you. You’ll get to live it yourselves..Tags: Australia, Covid, Lock-Downs, Mistakes, Public Health, Supply Chain, vaccines
