    "One 11-year-old and two teenagers died from COVID-19-related complications in Florida and more than 7,000 other children under 18 have tested positive"

    .04% morbidity which would be infinitesimal % of the whole. From everything I've read, the flu is much worse for children and teenagers and easier to catch.

    "Between October 1, 2019 and April 4, 2020, there have been 39 million - 56 million flu illnesses, 410,000 - 740,000 hospitalizations, and 24,000 - 62,000 deaths from flu, of which 169 are pediatric, according to the CDC. " That's WITH a vaccine.

    Do you not remember at the beginning of this farcical hysteria, there was no stopping this virus without a vaccine or herd immunity?

    All in all, we've done well avoiding a flood of hospitalizations. As for anti-science, I'm getting my data from actual MD's and the CDC. Not MSNBC and twitter.

    updated:

    RE; Influenza.
    Hospitalization rates for children also are unusually high. Children ages 4 and under have been hospitalized at a rate of 88.9 per 100,000 children, the highest on record for this point in the season. Rates for children ages 5-17 are 22.6 per 100,000 children, the highest in recent seasons except the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

    So we should destroy our economy? Put everyone on welfare and wear mask from now on? When do you start filtering out the hysteric proclamations and start dealing with reality.

    Safe to go to the grocery store but not Church. Safe to stand in line at the DMV but not go to school. Crazy nonsense.

    Thankfully, protest, riots, illegal immigration don't spread the chinese plague.

    Your response just doesn't make any sense. Never said anything about wrecking the economy, just do what's recommended.

    Then this grocery store vs. Church, DMV vs. school. What are you even talking about?

    It's very simple and it's across the board. If you're out and about and going to be around/near other people, wear a mask. Wash your hands, social distance when you can. This isn't complicated stuff.

    -------------------
    In the middle of a pandemic, let's use a drastic example:

    A. nobody wearing a mask

    B. everybody wearing a mask

    Which will lead to more health issues, deaths, a worse economy?

    Crazy Joe channeling Ilhan Omar and AOC. Still think he's a moderate? Believe him when he tells you he wants to "transform" the country. From capitalism to communism. From merit based success to forced mediocrity.

    Here are two essays by CJ Hopkins @consentfactory, about 15 min. reading each; some excerpts:

    The New (Pathologized) Totalitarianism (June 29th)
    ....................
    dhvani-billboard-a-mask-for-every-american_70.jpg
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    and this one, more on the satirical side, but spot on, as many commenters said:

    The Worst Literal Hitler Ever
    (June 10th)
    GloboCap is short for Global Capitalism, the author delves into it in Brave New Normal, The War on Populism and other short essays.

    Understand though, destroying the economy is the big narrative, so are the protests, the protest narrative changed a couple of weeks ago to "Out with capitalism , In with Socialism , you hear nothing about George Floyd or Breaona Taylor , nor are the protesters using signage with any names on them any longer, 78 Gunshot victims with 17 dead over the 4th of July weekend, all black victims, this has been going on in Chicago for a long time now, where is Black Lives matters? where have they been? what are they waiting for? and that is very relevant because these are not only adult black people getting shot and killed, but black children as well.

    the narrative is clearly about a complete change of government system in the US. As well as the world IMO

    US should do away with the 2 party system, that's a big part of the problem IMO. Some Constitutional tweaks may be in order as well. Other countries systems not gonna change due to a US election.

    Christian missionaries work 24/7 all over the world feeding the hungry, providing medical care, building community centers, building hospitals. Between the Catholics and the Protestants, Christians spend more money / time on charity than any Government in the world.

    Most atheist who need to express their lack of belief are anti-Christian - imo.

    Never underestimate the power of motivated tw*tter posters, they've even found out who Lonnie is ("The invisible parrot wearing pants that's perched on his shoulder telling him what to do, duh.")
