Another is to be able to rant at the current administration, accuse them of personally killing a quarter of a million people for political gain ... and ... Oh look, COVID has gone away as a news story all of a sudden.
Here in Virginia, the governor really likes controlling people's lives to a very detailed degree. If you kill the economy and tell people they can't work, can't travel, can't go out to eat ... then the people become dependent on the government for necessities, and that's exactly in the direction the government wants.
It's not paranoia if they're really out to get you. Surely I'm not the only one who can see that we haven't all turned into newts? I still don't know anyone, out of all the people that I know, that's been really sick or dead from this.
Even our own CDC says that only about 12,000 people died from COVID alone ... as opposed to the 220,000 who died of something and ALSO had COVID.
For a few weeks or a month in March/April when everyone believed that millions would die based on the "Models", draconian measures might have been justified.
But not now. The "news" lies to me all the time, about almost everything. I don't have to be paranoid - I can SEE with my own eyes. Why would I believe them about the Chink'n Pox?
Well, you did ask. And I do understand that my opinion isn't going to change the mind of someone immersed in governmedia infotainment in the form of CNN/MSNBC/BBC/Fox 24/7/365. Who are you going to trust - THEM or your own lying eyes?
