#2 Well Grom, some of your last comment can be explained by the fact that 1/3 of US deaths are in metropolitan NY and 40% of those were created by very bad policy decisions by a man the left currently has put on a pedestal.

Then look at the number of lies in counting to spike numbers here and ignore numbers there and counting hospitalizations per total population rather than per million when comparing USA with other countries to make it look worse and a heavy dose of skepticism is predictable.

Then we have the moving of the goal posts. Flatten the curve to avoid overwhelming the hospital became stay inside (despite proof early on that inside made transmission significantly easier) until the governor decides to let you out, even if that means that businesses fail and everyone becomes dependent upon the state to survive.

And the closing of churches as too dangerous but allowing mass protests and funerals because these things are too important (despite the fact that BLM movement is built on a series of lies, a series of lies everyone in power knows about).

Then there is the shutting down of debate on Hydrochloroquine and the usefulness of masks and it starts to look like intentional manipulation.

Distrust of authority is in American DNA and the reaction in the USA is entirely predicable.

#4 The one population cohort who has not worn a mask during the pandemic, rarely wash their hands, and put objects and toys in their mouths are the least infected by the virus. Go figure.

#5 Why don't you brave boomers volunteer to be substitute teachers, crossing guards, bus drivers?
