The COVID-19 Deal and Government Overreach.
Covid-19 has been in the news for almost two years. In that time there has been false information, untested vaccines and government overreach to the point of closing businesses and installing curfews.
I understand all of the things that have happened over the past two years. There has been to a very large degree dis-information passed to the public through the news media and print. There has been panic instilled in the public, false information provided on the death count, false unscientific information circulated on mask wearing and false death statistics.
The truth is hard for some to swallow. Covid-19 has a death rate of .002 . This means that 1 in 500 people contract this disease and succumb to it. The majority of these cases are tied to the elderly or those that have varying diseases that have already put them at risk. To think about the hype of the government should be a concern to you, after all 99.98 percent of you will be unaffected.
So there is a lot to consider. Should you take the vaccine. I took two Pfizer shots, the only vaccine so far approved by the FDA and I took those injections because I have a sick elder at home. It was for her protection. She took the shot as well as my wife. So we took a chance that the science and research was good. What if it isn’t? Well, if that is the case we have all taken a chance at death, and at perhaps a higher risk that catching the disease. It is no wonder that many of the population including health-care workers have decided not to take the vaccine. After all the immunity from catching COVID-19 is 27 times stronger than the vaccine once you get over the illness.
During the COVID-19 scare I traveled all over Northern California. I was around the public. I was un-masked most of the time but did heed to social distancing. I had no vaccine since it was not approved for people under the age of 65. Not once did I get sick. I had locations I worked in where people had COVID-19 and in some cases worked around them. I did not catch COVID. Was that luck? Do I have a stronger immune system than most or is it perhaps the Government hyperbole that has people running.
COVID-19 has been a great avenue for the government to install socialism. They paid people to stay home from work, killed small business and fed the large corporations. Think about this for a moment. Your local hair salon was closed while Liquor Stores and Marijuana dispensaries stayed open. Businesses got huge tax breaks. Employees got Federal and State free money. The Federal government was gave out $1,200 a person as long as they made less than 75K a year (Twice). The State of California has given out $1,100 four times. People that said they had COVID-19 did not have to prove it to get 10 days off from work with pay. They could claim exposure and collect multiple times. Free money and paying people to stay home makes them dependent on government — Socialism.
Now just like Nazi Germany the government is requiring you to take a COVID-19 vaccine or you won’t be allowed to eat out , or go to a movie, or a concert. They are keeping our children out of school if they don’t take the shot (in many locations.) Since when does the government decide on what is best for us? Isn’t the government – for the people and by the people? Mask wearing shows no scientific advantage unless it is worn properly, disposed of frequently, made of the correct material and handled properly. Does wearing a mask below your nose actually protect someone? How about shoving it in your pocket and then handling it with your dirty hands before you put it back on your face? Scientific right? Would it be safer to keep your face uncovered or to put a dirty germ laden mask on? I guess you will have to make that choice.
As far as I am concerned how you protect yourself from COVID-19 is your choice. If you feel you need a vaccine than take one. If you want to wear a mask, wear one. The government should have no authority to tell you what to do and by allowing that you are giving up more than you think.
The government is using COVID-19 and free money to shove a 3.5 trillion infrastructure bill down our throats. Have you read what is in it? Well perhaps you should. There is a lot in this bill that has nothing to do with infrastructure and a lot to do with socialism.
How about the Government checking your deposits and withdrawals from your checking account to see if they add up for your annual income and tax reporting. How about a 36% death tax on your property that you give to your children? How about an attempt to tax your potential gains on your 401K or stock at the end of the year even though you haven’t sold it? How about the free ride to the rich that they say will pay for it, but when you get down and read how it works the bill will fall squarely on the middle class.
There is nothing good about the COVID-19 deal and the government overreach that is going on. There is a lot of things flying under the radar and you had better pay attention to what those things are. If you don’t and you love “Biden’s” America and socialism be prepared to give up a lot more of your freedom. The attack is under way on the 2nd and 4th amendments of the constitution. Read them.
If you don’t care and you love Socialism because of the free stuff just remember this – “Socialism only works until you run out of other people’s money.”
