COVID: September Slide Continues into October (and more good news)

Let’s do a quick tour of the COVID numbers. We are in mid-October now and it is the time of the year that seasonal viruses kick in; however, since September 1, U.S. COVID cases are down from 166,000 per day to 85,000 per day, a drop of almost 50%. Last year around this time, weContinue reading “COVID: September Slide Continues into October (and more good news)”

Memo to Fauci, Biden, CDC: How Can You Live With Yourself?

For my last COVID post, I focused much on the good news, so let’s start there. After rising in July and August, COVID cases peaked in early September and have been falling since; we are down more than 42% in the last 5 weeks, the average having fallen down below 100,000 per day again. ItContinue reading “Memo to Fauci, Biden, CDC: How Can You Live With Yourself?”

Discussion on Freedom (with regard to COVID policy, abortion, gay marriage, transgenderism, and more)

A couple months back I engaged in a discussion of system racism with a liberal friend. I gave him an opportunity to criticize my positions and included his comments verbatim. We didn’t snipe at each other in pithy 140-word tweets and then hide behind a curtain of anonymity. Instead, we laid out the arguments inContinue reading “Discussion on Freedom (with regard to COVID policy, abortion, gay marriage, transgenderism, and more)”

COVID’s September Slide (Some Good News)

Last September, the third wave of COVID was in full swing and COVID deaths reached their peak a few months later. On the other hand, this September brought the end of the COVID fourth wave which was not as deadly as the third wave.

Delta Declines; COVID Tyranny Rises

The biggest news of the last week is that the Delta variant is now in decline in the U.S. Even though we knew this was coming, it is still nice to see. The rising and falling of COVID cases is the one COVID related feature as certain as death and taxes. The 7-day moving averageContinue reading “Delta Declines; COVID Tyranny Rises”

COVID Retrospective (vaccines, masks, treatments, natural immunity, herd immunity, and more)

In my last post, I wrote of the ineffectiveness of mask mandates at stopping the spread of COVID. Dr. Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s state epidemiologist said, “face masks are an easy solution, and I’m deeply distrustful of easy solutions to complex problems” (To Mask or Not to Mask: That is the Question – Seek the TruthContinue reading “COVID Retrospective (vaccines, masks, treatments, natural immunity, herd immunity, and more)”

To Mask or Not to Mask: That is the Question

The more evidence that is brought to light that mask mandates, and masks in general, are ineffective at stopping the spread of COVID (or other communicable diseases), the harder the push is to enforce masking in schools, to bring back mandates for the general public, to openly criticize those who favor freedom of choice onContinue reading “To Mask or Not to Mask: That is the Question”

Letter to My Employer: I won’t do it

I have watched as many around me have been pressured to vaccinate because of employer or school mandates. Many will accede to this demand because of the concern they have for their futures. Some may take a stand, but at a potentially high cost. Now, my employer, the federal government, has issued a vaccine mandate.Continue reading “Letter to My Employer: I won’t do it”
