COVID-19 Lies

lies, damned lies, and statistics

is this really what we want?

Something is  rotten in the state of Denmark ~ and in every other country in the world.  Something is not right, seriously amiss, and not only are the authorities doing nothing to prevent this dangerous state of affairs, the authorities are the cause of the terrible mess the world finds itself in right now.

A lie can travel around the world and back again while the truth is still lacing up its boots.  ~  Mark Twain

Of course I refer to the hysteria surrounding what is commonly referred to as the coronavirus pandemic, which has many people terrified, has destroyed many lives, and has indirectly killed many people by preventing them from receiving urgent medical treatment for many other life-threatening illnesses.

To begin with, on March 23rd I believed what the government told me, and like a good citizen I obeyed the lockdown rules, self-isolated, stayed at home, watched my life go down the toilet…..

Since then I have become increasingly disturbed by the propaganda pumped out by the media, politicians, health officials, et al  ~ which says that COVID-19 is the greatest threat faced by humanity since… anything really.  And it’s all lies.

I didn’t have to look hard to find the evidence proving that the whole coronavirus pandemic is a pile of bullshit.  I will give you just 2 pieces of evidence, and then let you make up your own mind.

  1. The statistics which say that millions / billions of people have tested positive for COVID-19 are wrong.  To begin with, only 0.4% of all those supposed millions tested have actually given a positive result.  Read a learned study published by Prof Carl Heneghan BM, BCH, DPLC, a practicing doctor and Professor of Evidence Based Medicine who also states that of every 18 positive results 10 will be false positives.  (About 60% of positives are false positives.)
  2. The mortality for COVID-19 statistics are based on these positive results.  To be said to have died from the coronavirus the deceased must have tested positive within the last 28 days ~ and then their death from whatever cause is attributed to COVID-19.  So a guy who was given a false positive result within the last month, and is then run down by a truck, is counted as a COVID-19 death.

I make no apologies for saying that the entire coronavirus pandemic panic is a lie.

Do your own research.  Stop believing the crap the media, politicians, health officials, et al are shovelling down your throat.  Be an intelligent, curious, concerned human being and not one of the sheep.

like all media the BBC now shovels propaganda

 

Carson City

If, like me, you were brought up on a diet of John Wayne Westerns, with a dash of Gary Cooper and Errol Flynn thrown in, then Carson City sounds like a one horse mining town at the end of a dusty stagecoach ride.

You know what?  Driving through Carson City still feels like being in a place where the sherrif has to watch his back.  Carson City is a town where you put the top up on your Mustang and lock the doors.

I had a cheerful trip down to Carson… crossing the divide between Silver City and Spring Valley…  I felt a mighty inclination to party somewhere.  ~  Mark Twain.

Carson City is on the California one-ten, and if you have sense you will take that fast on the toll lanes and never drive through downtown Carson.

We’ll give him a fair trial, and then we’ll hang him legal…

I was happy that the girl riding shotgun scores a solid 10 on the being intimidating scale.

On a good day, I could pass for Gary Cooper, maybe…

Complete Honesty

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.  Oscar Wilde, The Importance of being Earnest

liarShould one always tell the truth?  Do you always tell the truth to your partner?  The whole truth, without hesitation, deviation or prevarication?  Or, like most of the people on this planet are you sometimes guilty of little white lies, lies of omission, and outright bare-faced lies?

It isn’t the truth unless it’s the whole truth, and a secret is the next thing to an outright lie.

Some say that it’s easier to tell the truth to a complete stranger than it is to your partner.  And, that what they don’t know can’t hurt them.  All I know is that all lies are discovered eventually, and every discovered lie takes away trust.  Doing things in the dark doesn’t hide them forever.

I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Telling the truth isn’t easy.  Telling the entire, and completely honest truth needs trust and commitment.

Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it. ~ Mark Twain

Telling the ‘Honest to God’ truth is akin to opening a Pandora’s box.  One never knows what we are going to discover once the box is open.  There may be things in your past that you would rather not admit to.  There may be things in your past you think your partner would never understand.  Whatever is in your past will come to light eventually, so why not be truthful?   Yeah right, never in a million years.

PANDORA

My girl wants to know about me.  She has asked to know my secrets and innermost thoughts.  She wants to know what drives me, makes me tick, makes me who I am…

I can’t tell her any of that without telling her the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  This requires a huge leap of faith on both our parts.  But, because this is something she really needs and wants from me I have to take that leap of faith without asking anything in return.  Her trust and happiness will be reward enough.

regretOr, the things I may tell her could drive us apart.  Yet I will tell her the truth, without hesitation, deviation or prevarication.  They say confession is good for the soul.  She will have my complete honesty.  So, help me God.
