Fake pandemic?
That's what they're told, so that's what they believe.
Statistics back us up....remember what those are??
I prefer reality.

Hahaha not by the hogwash you just posted...you prefer media endoftheworld propaganda.
We exist in different realities.

I prefer mine, you're free to enjoy yours.
Go for it, just stop taking all the toilet paper when you come out of hiding from your basement.
This fiction that those of us who live our lives taking the virus into consideration, and limiting our unimportant contacts with the world are giving up our freedoms, is a complete fiction. My daughter's entire work pod is under quartantinen after 6 of the 15 people tested positive for the virus. My daughter said there are good and valid reasons why she tested negative and is one clean test away from being out of quarantine, and others did not.

The "freedom riders" are the ones who are getting the virus. None of my friends of gotten sick, and none of my immediately family or friends have lost loved ones. Nor have ANY of us gotten sick.
I just got back from getting my weekend cigars and beer and in the smoke shop one person out of eight was wearing a mask and at the liquor store nobody was wearing one,,

so what would you have me do???

And I know 102 people who all had the virus and only missed a few days of work, so what? You can't hide from any virus and trying to do so is silly and more costly to people than the virus itself.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."

2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.

The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Wrong a$$hat. The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the the number of "resolved cases": the total number of recovered patients plus the number of the deceased. There are literally millions of active cases where there is no resolution known, and of whom, a significant percentage will die.


According to this data chart, you have a 3.2% mortality rate nationwide. Canada has a 3.8% mortality rate, but with our being #29 in the world on total infections, we have 12,000 deaths, versus 280,000 for you. All we did was to wear masks and practice social distancing.

We also shut down hard, and stayed closed longer, and re-opened slowly. Just like the scientists told YOU to do too, and which your President and your state leaders ignored.
Baloney. Resolved cases lag weeks behind in information because they dont fit the libber narrative. Mortality rate is deaths divided by cases....and you are either alive or dead so this is the true number, as deaths and cases are update immediately.

Actual statistics cannot be debunked. Total deaths into total cases is the most accurate measure of real time mortality rate available. Geez you lemmings hate actual facts.

Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."

2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.

The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Wrong a$$hat. The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the the number of "resolved cases": the total number of recovered patients plus the number of the deceased. There are literally millions of active cases where there is no resolution known, and of whom, a significant percentage will die.


According to this data chart, you have a 3.2% mortality rate nationwide. Canada has a 3.8% mortality rate, but with our being #29 in the world on total infections, we have 12,000 deaths, versus 280,000 for you. All we did was to wear masks and practice social distancing.

We also shut down hard, and stayed closed longer, and re-opened slowly. Just like the scientists told YOU to do too, and which your President and your state leaders ignored.
Baloney. Resolved cases lag weeks behind in information because they dont fit the libber narrative. Mortality rate is deaths divided by cases....and you are either alive or dead so this is the true number, as deaths and cases are update immediately.
That's not baloney. The numbers you're trying to use are the same debunked statistics that Trump uses to obscure the horrific death rates in the USA.

Actual statistics cannot be debunked. Total deaths into total cases is the most accurate measure of real time mortality rate available. Geez you lemmings hate actual facts.
Horrific? Well we are lower than the global average and we are nearly half of your idiot country.

People may change their minds when a family member becomes seriously ill with the virus, especially if the family member is a doctor who has been treating Covid-19 patients for months. The virus becomes really very quickly.
Actually, plenty of other serious things to worry about besides Covid.....pneumonia, staph, mersa, cancer,a fall, etc, etc. Concentrating on a silly flu virus is dumb.
I'm sure my mother-in-law will find your expert medical knowledge and wisdom comforting.
Not sure what that means but everyone knows its most dangerous to elderly folks.
And people treating patients also.

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:

Everything about PROGS is fake. I'm open to a test on that, say something PROGS believe in, anything will do, we'll have some fun with it.
Sorry asshole but the KKK always was and always will be a democratic party effort, just as Jim Crow and lots of other racially motivated bullshit. I'm from the south so I know just exactly who they are, who they've always been and who they always will be. I've also seen the clan live and in person so there's no mistake.

The irony is the question was what do PROGS believe in, so this clown sports a picture of KKK.

The party of slavery only changed tactics. They need to fold tent, get the fuck out and move to China where they fit.

Fake pandemic?
Yes it's as phony as a four dollar bill. There's a virus but it no big deal.
Fair enough.
So why is there a big memorial every year for the victims of 9/11?
If 280,000 deaths and counting is "no big deal" why even bother to mention a paltry 3,500?
we could answer that,, but the fact you even brought it up shows youre to much of a fucking idiot to understand the answer,,,
Shocker...no answer!!!
After 9/11 the US sprung into action and invaded two countries.
It seems that when faced with a problem that you can't bomb or invade then you're all out of ideas.
And you seem to support the dicks that did all of this invading/bombing........weird, huh?

[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.

“I Think It's Time To End This COVID Hysteria: Change My Mind”


2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.

The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Yet you still have 275k deaths and rising to account for, dope.
So much for your statistical prowess.
One of the Saul Alinsky "rules for radicals" is guilting the other side. We are all guilted out. Those Prog controlled areas are tightening the grip more and more. Chairman Newsom of Kalifornia is closing the state down for three weeks. There goes Christmas. Christmas is anti Prog Socialist anyway.

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.

Wrong a$$hat. The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the the number of "resolved cases": the total number of recovered patients plus the number of the deceased. There are literally millions of active cases where there is no resolution known, and of whom, a significant percentage will die.


According to this data chart, you have a 3.2% mortality rate nationwide. Canada has a 3.8% mortality rate, but with our being #29 in the world on total infections, we have 12,000 deaths, versus 280,000 for you. All we did was to wear masks and practice social distancing.

We also shut down hard, and stayed closed longer, and re-opened slowly. Just like the scientists told YOU to do too, and which your President and your state leaders ignored.
Baloney. Resolved cases lag weeks behind in information because they dont fit the libber narrative. Mortality rate is deaths divided by cases....and you are either alive or dead so this is the true number, as deaths and cases are update immediately.
That's not baloney. The numbers you're trying to use are the same debunked statistics that Trump uses to obscure the horrific death rates in the USA.

Actual statistics cannot be debunked. Total deaths into total cases is the most accurate measure of real time mortality rate available. Geez you lemmings hate actual facts.
Horrific? Well we are lower than the global average and we are nearly half of your idiot country.

If you think this pandemic is nonsense, then feel free to visit some Covid patients at your local hospital.

Also, feel free not to wear any protective gear when you do.
Of the 102 infected coworkers I knew, I couldn't visit any of them in the hospital because they were home getting over the leftyflu in a week or 10 days. You go visit your imaginary friends in the hospital.
So you're saying that you're scared to go to the Hospital.
Why would I go to the hospital with no symptoms?
To verify that there are no critical patients as you seem to believe.

Or to verify that you're an idiot.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.

The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.

Simple math of actual numbers nothing to "interpret". See thats the problem, you libbers let the propaganda machine media do the interpreting for you.
