The Real Catastrophe Is a Political One

The Coronavirus is another virus in the long list of viruses that affects us every few years, according to statistics. Evidence strongly suggests this virus was a product of the Peoples Republic of China Liberation Army (PLA) for potential use as a bioweapon, about which it is politically incorrect to speak lest the Chinese should be offended. 
Its current manifestation as a rogue virus gone awry because some nincompoop Chinese lab technician dropped a vial of the stuff on the lab floor and broadcast it around when he walked home via the fresh bat meat market after his shift, is scaring people worldwide.

The detectable rapid spread of this current virus across the globe is alarming because nobody is sure how to approach it, except for Progressives, as a god send for population control or an indication of how disastrous it is too rely on government for our salvation.

People didn’t rely on government to learn the dangers of Cholera, Yellow Fever, Whooping Cough, Scarlet Fever, Smallpox or Measles. It was private enterprise who came to the rescue, but I’ll give credit to the US Army for finding mosquitoes the cause of Yellow Fever. 
For Progressives, it’s what class of society should be let go if infected and how we choose to face this newest danger, i.e., select or protect our own citizens, including illegals, select or protect the whole continent or select or protect the whole world. For Americans, that still leaves us faced with those moral choices that socialize medicine has promised: who gets to let live and who doesn’t? 
My question is who has that authority, who gave it to them and why? I sincerely hope neither Pelosi or Schumer are involved in those decisions because Democrats even threaten the Judiciary for the right to keep killing live babies as a method of population control, but balk at removing criminals who have no value to society and wouldn’t be missed.
Catastrophes are not only possible, they are probable because they happen all the time. Human beings from the past, including me, vividly remember the polio scare of the 1940’s, and realize how intensely vulnerable we were as humans to the disease d’jour. I distinctly remember my mothers fear of me contracting polio if I went to the municipal swimming pool, but, she let me go anyway. Adding to the fear, I remember speaking to youths in iron lung apparatus on display at fairs, all with the purpose of reminding visitors of the real dangers of the polio disease out there. Polio left a life long permanent mark but, In those days, we didn’t know what precautions to take so we accepted the risks because there was nothing else to be done. Jonas Salk, a private scientist solved the polio problem at last. It’s now a memory or should be.
Neither of my parents were around when smallpox, tuberculosis and the Black Death killed far more people than any war or any of the many plagues since. In 1957 the Asian flu came along, but inoculations had advanced to the point that child mortality rates dropped exponentially because previously, nearly all children got a series of diseases that we either survived or didn’t. The majority of us post war children made it through quite nicely, unlike in previous eras. My Grandfather, on my mothers’s side, died in the great Spanish flu epidemic of 1918. He was a Colorado coal miner and is counted among the half million folks in the US who died in that epidemic.
It’s not that the Asian flu, the second influenza pandemic of the twentieth century, wasn’t a serious concern because it was. That flu strain killed between one and two million people, a hundred thousand in the US alone. And yet, politicians didn’t blame Ike, governors didn’t call up the National Guard and college sports events weren’t cancelled. Modern transportation continued to operate and we did not regard each other with fear and loathing, afraid to shake hands or stand near to one another. The Asian flu was what it was and it was taken in stride like all the other pandemics that came before it, until it went away.  
Today, when I reflect back at how my parents, friends and neighbors reacted to the Swine flu in 1957, I ask, was it with casual disinterest or alarmed concern? I don’t remember them ever being alarmed to panic levels. Were they active in taking protective measures? Were they even afraid actually? I don’t recall that at all. We just treated any infections like we would a serious cold or flu and, we didn’t have the media telling us twenty-four hours a day, how bad things were and that they were going to get worse.
The only quarantine measure I ever recall was when my brother and I separately came down with the Mumps and Chicken Pox. Those diseases are now memories as is the once fearful polio but, as a political weapon, they can still be very dangerous.
Remember what Clinton’s Chief of Staff and Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel once said: “never let a good crisis go to waste!”
So, is the Coronavirus a Catastrophe? I don’t really think so because I have the personal experience of surviving several of these things in my life time. Today I rarely come down with anything more serious than a cold so I reckon I must be immune to about anything except a speeding bullet. Those diseases of yesteryear didn’t come at us one at a time, they came at us in droves, some serious, some not but I didn’t give ’em any serious concern. I left that to my mom and dad. 

Today’s medics are starting to understand that the practical sense techniques needed to reduce the virus’s effects will work if only the media would only get out of the way.

The real catastrophe is a political one. Apart from abortions on demand, it’s the monthly death toll from lead poisoning occurring in Chicago and other urban American cities that we take no notice of.  
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?
