The former Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (Drug Czar) under late President George H.W. Bush had some pretty explosive things to say about how data models and the reaction to COVID-19 have affected Americans and the economy. Bennett summarized: [I]f you look at those numbers, and see the comparable, we're going to have fewer fatalities from this than from the flu. For this, we scared the hell out of the American people, we lost 17 million jobs, we put a major dent in the economy, we closed down the schools you heard Dr. Oz say we probably didn't have to do that shut down the churches, and so on.

He was so successful with that whole drug thing, wasn’t he?
Bill, why don’t you go take a few more spins at the roulette wheel and then go lecture someone about virtue. You might even give them a copy of your book to read.
Just not me. I figured you out 20 years ago.
Hey Bill, wanna bet? Sorry, I couldn’t resist a snarky retort.
Well the media didn’t help, got the entire country in panic mood and buying up all the toilet paper.
President Trump was being calm and collected through this whole ordeal. Glad he was and wouldn’t expect anything less.
Man, you have an attitude....
Yeah, well, Bill...you were the one who wanted mass immigration from Chiner and open borders in general.
It only cost us 21,000 dead people so far, a couple trillion bucks, and most of our Constitutional rights.
Real benefits to us, right?
Recall you said all sorts of wonderful things would happen.
Guess it’s a matter of definition.
He was so successful with that whole drug thing, wasnt he?
Actually Yes he was, Drugs are more plentiful now than ever before, they are cheaper, stronger, in greater variety, and it allowed the Government to Expand it’s powers and usurp more rights and liberties from the Citizenry, in the name of “protecting them”, than any other program ever. Just look at the unbridled Police Power the State has now.
No ‘spit’, Sherlock
“Man, you have an attitude....”
Leave me alone.
Oh come on Bill. You are brighter than that. You cannot project from what happened with full-on mitigation to what would have happened had we not engaged in mitigation.
I don’t know about “Hell” but after the run on TP it did scare the chit out of them
