Default It's almost as if the "virus mitigation" measures work

It's almost as if none of the "virus mitigation" measures work

5 days ago..
Gov Steve Sisolak
"If we don't come together at this moment, I will be forced to take stronger action in 14 days. To be clear I don't want to take stronger action I do not want to implement more restrictions," said Gov. Sisolak.
The governor stopped short of discouraging tourists from coming to Las Vegas and admits it seems like a double standard to ask Nevadans to stay at home.
He adds the shutdowns are still having long-lasting, negative financial and emotional impacts months later.
"That is a tightrope to balance controlling COVID spread, protecting out hospitals from surges, and at the same time not destroying and shutting down our economy." Gov. Sisolak said.
Nevada governor 'walking a tightrope' as coronavirus cases increase
Authorities say it is clear some people are tired and not following the safety protocols but urged immediate, corrective action to keep Nevada open.
He urged people to practice social distancing, properly wear a face mask, and use good hygiene.
The governor added most businesses appear to follow protocols and called upon local jurisdictions to step up enforcement.
The governor says if the trends do not correct quickly, there will be drastic measures needed in the near future....

"I’m not going to come back in two weeks and say I’m going to give you another chance.”..

Tom Woods news letter today
Steve Sisolak, governor of Nevada, recently scolded citizens of his state. Why, only irresponsible behavior can account for a rise in "cases" there!
So he's telling Nevadans that they have two weeks to get things under control.
He warned, "I’m not going to come back in two weeks and say I’m going to give you another chance.”
And then, three days later, Governor Sisolak himself tested positive for COVID-19.
Should we treat him like he's 7 and scold him for his irresponsible behavior, the way he just did to his citizens?
The governor was forced to admit: “You can take all the precautions that are possible and you can still contract the virus. I don’t know how I got it.”
As Alex Berenson says, virus gonna virus.

Yesterday former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan posted the following:

"How did we catch it? I don't know. We wore masks. We socially distanced. We avoided crowds. We haven't had people in our house."

Virus gonna virus.

We can either accept this, and take steps to protect those among us who are most at risk while others resume the one life they are given, or we can destroy our social fabric.
Meanwhile, we have families and friendships being torn apart over all this. You're a bad person if you reject the propaganda. Why, you don't care about saving lives! You're "selfish"!
Never mind the countless lives lost by lockdown itself, a point I've made again and again. Those lives don't seem to count for some reason.

they did everything they've been told to do to keep them SAFE but still got it.

Practically speaking this means either:
1. Mask, distancing and hand washing don't work.
2. Mask, distancing and hand washing don't work WELL at all.
3. The test are flawed and are giving false positives.

None of those options show the conventional "suggestions" as helpful or trust worthy.
I don't know about the rest of you but I'll remember things like this when they trot out vaccines that they'll insist will keep us safe.
And then call folks idiots and crazy for daring to question the "experts" on their assertions.
Hope is the dream of the waking man.

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
Job 14:6-8

Default Re: It's almost as if the "virus mitigation" measures work

One of my daughters best friends has been extremely careful about the virus. She had locked her and her family down. Didn't go out, had groceries and other supplies delivered, stayed away from EVERYONE including her own family that did not live in their house.

She got Covid and can't figure out how.

It amazes me the people that believe that a virus that escaped a level 4 containment facility, is somehow going to be kept at bay by a homemade, cloth mask.

Unless you live in a field or desert, far removed from any other human being on the planet, you are going to be exposed to this virus at some point. I suggest that people that are young and healthy, get exposed before winter hits and let the virus run its course. You'll most likely be fine as people in this group have a survival rate of 99.99%.

Those that are most at risk need to eat healthy and take good care of themselves. High doses of Vitamins C and D along with Zinc will go a long way in helping to build your immune systems as well as help to fight off any virus you may come into contact with.

But most of all, LIVE YOUR LIVES. You only get one, don't spend it hiding under your bed.
To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead - Thomas Paine

A lie doesn't become truth, a wrong doesn't become right, and Evil doesn't become good, just because it is accepted by the majority. - Booker T Washington
