I must admit I am getting pretty tired of the cracks about how the virus has been handled by governments, without a single constructive comment as to what could have been done better given the information available at the time. Twenty-twenty hindsight get sickening after a while. As for the media, they are so anti-Trump that they have lost all credibility with me, and quite a few other people. When it comes to the virus, I think that they are hoping millions will die, just to try to get rid of Trump. As for restarting the economy, that is a non-starter for them. They hate the US and would love to see us under a Democratic dictator that can rule by fiat, like most of the Democratic governors have been doing.

Then that insufferable Swedish teenager is back in the news, now as a corona virus pandemic expert to go with her climate change doctorate with massive amounts of additional study. Sweden's death rate per million is 361, while the US with the New York Metropolitan Area (i.e. the Cuomo/De Blasio death zone) is at 278. Way to go Sweden. Take out New York, and the U.S. rate is about cut in half. The UK death rate is close to twice that of the US, while Belgium's is incredible. Does Belgium not have medical facilities? They make Italy and Spain look good. As for China and Iran, who knows.

There is a county in Wisconsin that has had 11 deaths, and now is dumped the Wisconsin lockdown. Five deaths were from 65-80, and six deaths were over 80, all with pre-existing medical conditions. The county is strongly tourist-based, and the county board can read the numbers far better than the governor. I do not think that the governor has passed basic math, but then, he is a Democrat and would-be dictator, like a lot of Democratic governors seem to be.

As for the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, he, if by some bizarre manner is elected, probably will not get past his first year, if that, before the 25th Amendment is involved to replace him with someone who is not senile. His vice-presidential choice should be very interesting, as whoever it is will be president quite shortly if the Democrats win. I do not think the will happen, but this has been a crazy year.

More Tomorrow, I think.
