Some thoughts as airlines begin stuffing passengers back on planes.
- “When it was time to board the plane,” writes Laurence M. Vance at LewRockwell.com, “no social distancing was practiced by anyone, and neither was there an announcement from American about the need to practice it.”
- Governors go wild and order you to shelter in place unless you’re a protester.
- “What happened? A cure? A miraculous vaccine?” No, writes Ron Paul at LewRockwell.com “The officials who locked Americans up found a cause they felt required Americans in the streets to protest. Police had killed a black man, George Floyd, in their custody in Minneapolis and suddenly the need to protest trumped the need to ‘stay home, save lives.’”
- “Suddenly the same health ‘experts’ who told us we must not gather in crowds or there will be death in the millions from coronavirus issued statements supporting gathering in crowds,” writes Ron Paul. “An open letter on the George Floyd protests signed by more than 1,200 doctors and other health professionals clarified that they ‘do not condemn these gatherings as risky for Covid-19 transmission.’ However, they wrote, ‘this should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-at-home orders.’”
- In the words of Ron Paul, the “coronavirus shows why we need separation of medicine and state!”
- Note to Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio: turns out overcrowded public housing is a virus petri dish.
- As universities gear up for the Fall semester, how will dorm life ever be the same again? It won’t be. But that’s not preventing them from opening up at all cost, or else you can kiss business as usual goodbye.
- In Rhode Island the coastal towns are progressive, but you can “live free or die” in places like rural Exeter, for example. There are ways to make a blue state work.
- Anecdotally, when we were skiing in Telluride, Becky and I rented an oxygen machine to help adjust to the altitude and it worked beautifully. I remember sitting on the couch hooked up watching Cuomo begging for the ventilators. Turns out, less invasive oxygen machines are the better option (avoidance of all is best).
- Failures at every turn: Pelosi/Schumer/progressive governors and mayors/union leaders/ etc.
- Lawn signs for Trump: You Want Me or Shotgun Joe?
