“…make no law, respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging…the right of the people peaceably to assemble…’
What manner of hubris is this, that computer ‘what if’ modeling has suddenly become the standard for violating the Constitutional rights given us in that founding document?
Suddenly, we can’t worship; we can’t ‘peaceably assemble’; we can’t travel?
Because of faulty computer modeling hysteria?
Unless martial law has been declared, no such powers exist for our government to take away our constitutional freedoms in such a manner: even then, without good cause.
‘What if’ computer modeling IS NOT GOOD CAUSE.
Because, by that standard, EVERY civil right we’re guaranteed could be abridged.
Of course viral flu is scary; of course common sense precautions are in order…but the actions taken by our local & state government to date are NOT legitimized by the data.
First, actual deaths CAUSED by this Wuhan Flu are being over-inflated by including any deaths where that flu is present, even if it wasn’t proven the actual cause of death.
But, even accepting every death attributed to that WuFlu, CDC data for the month of March indicates that we are not experiencing any ‘spiking’ death totals they predict.
As reported at Grassfire.com, “According to data obtained from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics Mortality Surveillance System website, total U.S. deaths for the first three weeks of March are DOWN 10% from the average of the prior four years for the same three week period…The final data for March could show a total of 26,000 or more FEWER DEATHS in the month than would be expected without even factoring in the impact of 4,000 COVID deaths.” (ed note: 4,000 deaths was for March only)
As of 3:22am, April 09, death totals for WuFlu are reported as 14,797. That means – to date – even with that higher number added to March, total deaths are below average.
Rate of contagion, hospitalization, and deaths at this point are all the result of computer modeling; none of those ‘what if’ modeling numbers have proven close to being true.
Allowing such idiocy opens the door to the same idiotic ‘what if’ thinking that can justify taking away our right to bear arms; or otherwise be secure from unreasonable search and seizure; or allowed due process; or protection from excessive bail or fines.
Americans should demand more from their elected leaders than ‘sky-is-falling’ hysteria.
Americans should demand their constitutional rights not be unnecessarily abridged.
Americans should hold accountable the politicians and media causing unfounded panic.
And based on the ACTUAL numbers to date, re, this Wuhan Flu MADNESS…
…Americans should be going on with their normal lives…
…UNLESS THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THIS FLU THEY’RE NOT TELLING US?
