Obviously there is some overlap between them, but this is part of why things are so dangerous with COVID because we are a very unhealthy country and many people have pre-existing health conditions that can make it deadly.
don't mean to sound incredibly insensitive, but that's not the other 58%'s problem. those who are at risk, like my mother for example, ought to be careful. but my mother would never want the rest of the country to stop for her and others who have conditions like her. she is being careful and remaining low key. can't shut down everything.
clearly it doesn't work. look at Cali cases skyrocketed after the lockdown and mandates. in 3 years looking back at the data there will be two times per year where the cases go way up....the charts will align with that of the flu in terms of time of year, cases, etc. It's common sense.
I remember being in history class and feeling blown away at how it took so long for the Nazi's to be stopped. I remember thinking, how come the jews gave up their guns, and their gold, and their freedoms?? why didn't they fight back? Now I get why. We live in a country of sheep. a world of sheep really.
like I said, you won't find me in the boxcar line. not happening.
As a history teacher and one who is currently doing a unit on the Rise of the Third Reich, your history teacher should have been fired. Plain and simple.
well as a history teacher you should be pretty ticked off that the latest stimulus bill is sending 700,000,000 to Sudan, 25 million for genders studies in Pakistan, etc, etc and hard working American citizens like yourself who educate our children will see $600.
I agree that I shouldn't have gone back to Nazi Germany as a comparison, that was a bit aggressive by me, but my point stands. My point being that freedoms being stripped and a society buying in to propaganda spewed by the media takes time and has historically been used to create fear and brainwash people in masses.
I am still waiting for someone on this board to give me a good explanation on why our country in primarily democrat run states are closed down. Please elaborate on the "science" behind it and how it's working.
