COVID: Trust these sources

| July 31, 2020 1:00 AM

The mindless mendacity of politicians, the media and bureaucrats at every echelon is mind-boggling.

When providing data about deaths, all fail to discuss ‘as compared to what?’ let alone mention the infection fatality rate.

When discussing cases of infection, the specifics that would allow the formation of a sound judgment are omitted, and the question, ‘as compared to what?’ is never raised.

The fact that at this late date a Coeur d’Alene Councilman is still pushing for a mandatory mask mandate bears witness to the spineless stupidity of the political class. Can he do a little research online? Can he think and reason?

A good place to start is with the articles by J.B. Handley, “Lockdown Lunacy: The Thinking Person’s Guide” (June 4, 2020) and “Lockdown Lunacy 2.0: Second Wave? Not Even Close.”

For the typographically challenged, there is the short “Masks are Neither Effective Nor Safe: A Summary of the Science” (July 14, 2020).
