The Delta Variant

 Evidently, there is anew strain of Covid that is going to kill us all.  The Delta Variant.  Oh, it's bad, and we're all going to die.

Well, both those statements are true. although probably unrelated. We are all going to die, that is inescapable.  And, the Delta variant is probably bad.  All illness is bad.

If we've learned anything over the past eighteen months, is that government can't be trusted with the freedom of The People.  Just as we are starting to climb out of the economic disaster that was foisted upon us last year, we are being told of a new threat, much like the old threat.  While I do not doubt that there may be lingering problems associated with the virus, I also do not doubt that the government has no clue how to deal with it.  The government, in the form of the WHO, the CDC, and the other alphabet agencies who track such things, have simply become background noise, an incessant chatter that 

What they want, what they have shown over and over, is that they are simply unable to control the spread of any disease, so they will settle for controlling people.  It is all abut power, and they have shown that they are simply incapable of relinquishing power.  They have tasted it, and they are hungry for it.

As for me, I'm done with letting government have any more power.  I won't be controlled, I won't be demeaned, and I won't be ruled.

Turns out you're still an ignorant POS that can't read worldwide news.

And you're still hiding behind the "Anonymous" ID.

I think Pawpaw can read just fine; as can I.

I leave this here:

What the hell are all the Snowflakes afraid of? COVID? Excuse me while I laugh, since for persons under age 70 with no co-morbidities, the infection survival rate is 99.7%

For those under age 30, it's significantly lower.

"For those under age 30, it's significantly lower."

By that I meant the mortality rate is lower, and the survival rate is higher.
COVID-19 is far more dangerous to those over 70, and very serious for those over 80.

Until the human animal's genome mutates to incorporate this particular virus in all it's variations, humans are going to get sick. If your immune system can't fight a virus off, you are going to die from it. Just like every other viruses out there. Been going on since before the various human species crawled out of the trees and will continue until this strain of humans are extinct like Neanderthals and the Denisovans. And no questionable gene therapy is going to 'save' the species. We have no cure for the common cold which this 'bug', as I understand it, is in the same family/group. So wash your hands, cover your mouth(
EDIT to add: when you cough) and stay the hell at home if you are sick. And leave my civil liberties alone!
