No Questions Allowed!

During this whole coronavirus pandemic, it seemed nobody was allowed to ask any questions. Nobody was allowed to question anything the approved consensus said on how to protect yourself from Covid or any questions on the medical treatments hundreds of doctors and scientists had brought up throughout this mess.

Don’t ask anything, because if you do, you’re branded a Covidiot, anti-vaxer, conspiracy theorist, nut, etc., which is the antithesis of what a democratic republic/a country that believes in questioning everything and freedom of speech that has been valued in this country has believed since its inception.

However, on May 13, the CDC announced those who are vaccinated (cleared two weeks after receiving the shot) didn’t have to wear masks inside buildings anymore.

Immediately, there was push back from the people who have been following the CDC and other government entities, such as the FDA, NIH, as well as the WHO.

And a question came to me, as many have throughout this whole pandemic.

Why are those people who berated everyone to follow the CDC and other public health authorities without exception now thumbing their noses at at least one of these organizations?

It’s a valid and reasonable question that I doubt anybody has answered yet.

What I’ve seen with regard to this is ….

CRICKETS

So, I saw this Jimmy Dore Show video today, and I thank him for asking the same thing. More importantly, I thank excellent investigative reporter, Max Blumenthal, on what he says with regard to this subject. I believe he is spot on. Therefore, I’m sharing it here.

If this blog gets censured, it would be par for the course and prove my point on questioning anything on this subject. I’ve not said much at all about this pandemic since it started. But I can’t help but ask such questions. It’s common sense and not stupid to ask questions.

In reality, one should question everything and debate the issues with those who have the credentials to do so, i.e., doctors, scientists, etc. All should have been brought to the table on this, and every type of treatment should have been discussed and considered.

Historically in this country, we hardly ever learn from our errors. I’m not too confident we will this go around.

“Men Without Chests” — Clueless, Heartless Elites

Our government doesn’t give a fig about us. They are out of touch with the average person’s way of life and live in their own elitist world.

This is why they are clueless and don’t care that $600 per person won’t even pay the rent in any state I know of. It may cover some utilities and it could be used for groceries, but that only takes care of a couple of needed items in order to survive.

Considering our government has been giving $1 trillion a day to banks, that tells me our government is more than able to give each person and/or family easily $5000/month until this pandemic and the recession/depression is gone.

Millions have lost their jobs, which also means many of them have lost their health insurance. A double whammy because of the stupid system of tying your healthcare to an employer. It not only puts the burden on the small and medium-sized employers, but most importantly, it makes a person in bondage to his/her employer because he/she can’t afford to be without healthcare.

It’s interesting to note, I saw a chart of other countries in the world compensating people because of what happened with Covid and the shut downs. Japan is paying 100% of the wages of their people, and other countries average 80% coverage.

The US–richest country on the planet? A big fat 0.

Disgraceful, unconscionable, disgusting, and simply inhumane. I’m embarrassed and angry.

Back to the stimulus joke. Due to the knowledge of the shelling out of a trillion dollars daily to banks, I think our government should have been doling out $5000/month for all Americans stating back in March. Instead, we have people suffering both health wise and economically, causing more deaths of despair and illnesses. It’s a disaster, it’s insanity, it’s inhumane.

I can’t get over how incredibly inhumane, arrogant, and worthless our government officials are. With the exception of a handful of them, they all need to go.

Just learning now that Trump hasn’t signed the bill but rather wants the bill reworked. This is good, but it doesn’t change my view on our government’s actions during these crises. However, I will hold out some hope that the next stimulus will actually be focused on the American people instead of unnecessary foreign aid and our government officials’ own special interests.

You always have to have hope.
