City (7/14)



  1. And I hate it when people diminish, no, chortle at the suffering of the multitudes, crushed by the effects of a monomaniacal focus, on one health concern, to the exclusion of all else.
  2. I keep close track of the U.K. Their numbers so mirror our own. And their ONS is quicker to the mark with hard data. Joel Smalley, on Twitter, has been parsing excess deaths for the U.K. in 2020 47,011 from Covid. 54,208 from denied healthcare and unexplained reasons. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if our percentages lined up accordingly.
  3. I could post literally dozens of studies that point to the futility of lockdowns (this is a submicroscopic particle) but I’d rather focus on the human rights aspect. Think about it. Along about March ... You are not permitted to open your own business. You can’t send your kids to school. You cannot attend church. You can’t eat out. You can’t go to a movie. You can’t leave the country. You can’t sit on a park bench. Forget sports and concerts. You have to push back that cancer screening. You can’t comfort your dying. You can’t bury your dead. Life entails risks. And inevitably we die. We all die. Really, the only way to avoid risks is to commit suicide. And that’s basically what we did in 2020. Oh, the theory on traffic fatalities I’ve heard is, fewer cars on the road = riskier driving. But they are up.
  4. And over the rest of the year, lockdowns have likely accelerated deaths of despair. And clearing hospitals, for Covid, have resulted in vast numbers of vital treatments deferred or foregone. I’ve already referenced a woman I knew who was receiving treatments for cancer. Her family related that her treatments kept getting pushed back. Homicides also surged. Even traffic fatalities increased! Lots of dying across the board this year.
  5. Thanks for the opportunity to (re)clarify. There have been SIGNIFICANT ‘excess deaths’ this year. The first graph, on your reference, point to back-to-back mild winters, when respiratory viruses are most lethal. Notice how the curve is reducing in March, as you would expect ... then the anomalous and precipitous ‘Covid peak’ manifests. I am slightly fixated on the fact the real dying accelerates just days after the ominous WHO declaration of March 11. You see spikes like this, all over the world, at the same time, but not in every jurisdiction. In fact, not in most jurisdictions. It is my strong suspicion that the spike represents what we were doing to people, in certain jurisdictions, more so than any virus running through the population. I’m envisioning an environment of stark terror, over-treatment and policies which ensured that the most vulnerable were exposed to any number of infections and also dying from neglect, isolation and despair. Add to that a disturbing spike in people dying at home ...
  6. I’m simply commenting on one of the saddest aspects of this moral panic, the tendency to view others as disease vectors, first and foremost.
  7. And since you seem to want to blame your uncle’s death on other people, I’m going to continue to keep that issue in view.
  8. We are essentially at the end of what looks like a normal winter burden of deaths. The anomaly was the panic spike of March and April. Did anti-maskers murder your uncle ? Or you could just go to church, restaurants, theatre, etc., now.
  9. Lockdowns are why we can’t have nice things ... https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-02-24/two-thirds-of-new-york-city-s-arts-and-culture-jobs-are-gone
  10. Deaths and cases dropping all over the world. Lockdowns and no lockdowns. Masks and no masks. Vaccines and no vaccines. In any other time we’d consider this winter burden of death winding down.
  11. Oh yes, makes a huge difference when you adjust for age. Americans are getting older. And back-to-back mild flu seasons left a sizable cohort of frail elderly.
  12. 0 snow is not exactly what I moved from FL for.
  13. Yeah, but come on. It looked like that flag was blowing in the wind.
  14. Which site ? www.rationalground.com ? I’m actually a holocaust denial denier. Basically, Holocaust denial doesn’t exist. My non-warmongering views do tend to land me in hot water.
  15. And for Pete’s sake, I’m not genuflecting to Trump in all this. Even if it ran against his instincts, to shut down the economy, fear of ‘blood on hands’ caused one head-of-state after another to crumble, especially in the face of terrifying computer models and fake videos of Chinese dying in the streets.
