Sunday Thoughts: The Stupidity Challenge

The Stupidity Challenge

It is about 60 days until America goes to the polls and decide the future of the country. But the election process is already underway. Campaigning and presenting one's views before the American people is most important because the agenda put forward by each candidate should determine how one votes. Any democratic process requires a minimal level of intelligence. One has to understand the issues in order to vote appropriately. Unfortunately, many voters are ill-informed and wallow in stupidity. Emblematically we see displays of stupidity all over our society - especially on social media platforms. In one example of this, a video has gone viral of a social media influencer licking a toilet seat in order to start a "Coronavirus Challenge."

Vaccine Russian Roulette?

Vaccine Russian Roulette

Time - Russia on Tuesday became the first country to officially register a coronavirus vaccine and declare it ready for use, despite international skepticism. President Vladimir Putin said that one of his daughters has already been inoculated. The Russian leader added that one of his two adult daughters had received two shots of the vaccine. "She has taken part in the experiment," Putin said. Putin said that his daughter had a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 Fahrenheit) on the day of the first vaccine injection, and then it dropped to just over 37 degrees (98.6 Fahrenheit) on the following day. After the second shot, she again had a slight increase in temperature, but then it was all over. "She's feeling well

Coming Soon, New CDC Recommendations, BUTT SHIELDS and N95 Panties?

More than one of every 10 people with COVID-19 develop diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting, and these symptoms may be a key driver of disease spread, an analysis published by JAMA Network Open says. While just 12 percent of patients infected with the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, experience these gastrointestinal symptoms, more than 40 percent of them shed virus - meaning, they're contagious - via feces, the researchers said. Clinicians from the Institute of Infectious Diseases at Beijing Ditan Hospital, Capital Medical University found that some patients had positive real-time fluorescence polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test results for SARS-CoV-2 in the sputum or feces after the pharyngeal swabs became negative. The CDC is unclear on this point - they give the standard answer

Why Are We So Concerned About Personal Choice Now?

Lady With Food

Do-gooding, selective ignoramuses, are quick to point out where we are failing with COVID, but where is their same concern for human life when it comes to unhealthy food, alcohol, and cigarette consumption? For that matter, where is the concern in deadly flu seasons? For reasonable people, the hysteria surrounding COVID is as confusing as it is frustrating. Take your pick on facts that are constantly ignored or denied by the self-proclaimed "Party of Science." The CDC's continues declining, and its most recent death rate is down to just .4%; in other words, 99.6% of people that contract COVID survive More than 80% of all COVID deaths are among people aged 65 and older More than half of all COVID deaths have come in nursing

China Boasts of Many Helpful Discoveries But Refuses to Accept Responsibility for Diseases

China Discoveries

China boasts of four great inventions: the compass, gunpowder, paper, and printing technology. We applaud them for their contributions; however, they must also take responsibility for many genocides, wars, and the birth and cultivation of Chinese Communism in Asia that is responsible for up to 62 million deaths—of their own people! The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is as great a scourge as any deadly virus, yet they think it is the world’s greatest blessing! What is not known by most people is that China is the source of the three most deadly plagues that smacked the face of our planet in the last 2,000 years. Now, over vociferous denials and charges of xenophobia and racism must be added the Chinese coronavirus. Running

Arizona Coronavirus – To Mask Or Not To Mask

Chandler City Arizona

Yahoo - You've heard a lot about a spike in COVID-19 cases, and you've probably heard at least a few mentions of a "second wave" of coronavirus. Right now, states like Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma are seeing dramatic spikes in COVID-19 cases. But these surges aren't part of the dreaded second wave we've been warned about. They're still part of the first. And that should cause you even more concern. The Navajo Nation has been forced to reinstate lockdowns to shield its people from major coronavirus outbreaks outside the reservation, especially in Arizona, where cases are surging. Navajo nation president Jonathan Nez said at a virtual town hall earlier this week: "Arizona relaxed its preventive measures, and the number of cases and hospitalizations

Coronavirus Crisis Gives Universal Basic Income a Second Life

The ghost of Richard Cloward and Frances Piven's radical dream, commonly known as the Cloward - Piven Strategy is reincarnated in the flesh of Coronavirus, which presents an opportunity for its proponents to implement the scheme laid out in a 1966 article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty." The piece, written by Cloward and Piven, appeared in a liberal Magazine called, The Nation, outlined a strategy to overwhelm the welfare system to such a degree that it would collapse and usher in an era of a Universal Basic Income, or UBI.  As with most radical plots of this nature, the creators disregard the reality that the fiscal burden falls on the taxpayer, who sooner or later

Democrat Lockdown and Crash the Economy Strategy Could Backfire

James Carville

We all know the game the political Democrats are playing. If we (Democrats) can get Trump's record-breaking economy to crash, we can defeat Trump. This was exemplified by Bill Mahr's now-famous remarks on his TV show "Real Time with Bill Maher," where he wished this very event on the American people. Why anyone would wish this is rather despicable - but this is another issue. See Mahr's remarks in the following video clip: Then the Coronavirus "pandemic" hits. The Coronavirus has been a godsend for Democrats. It has done exactly what Bill Mahr was hoping for - it has crashed the economy. Not surprising when you consider that everyone is/was on lockdown for several months. Most honest debaters understand that the

The WHO, a Scientific or a Political Organization?

Taiwan Coronavirus

CNBC - “We feel disappointed and angry about WHO’s (World Health Organization) the decision of not inviting Taiwan to join this year’s WHA, we feel we have so much to share about our successful experiences in this Covid-19 outbreak response,” said Yi-Chun Lo, deputy director-general at Taiwan Centers for Disease Control. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that the U.S. condemns Taiwan’s exclusion from the WHA. Taiwan is a model world citizen, while the PRC (People's Republic of China) continues to withhold vital information about the virus and its origins, deny access to their scientists and relevant facilities, censor discussion of the pandemic within China and on Chinese social media properties, and casts blame widely and recklessly,” said Pompeo.   CNN - Australia
