Skip to comments.Can We Stomach a Second Shutdown?
Posted on 08/04/2020 7:56:53 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
In a recent coalition letter to decision makers, 150 health experts call for a second lockdown.
Certainly this letter is well-intentioned, with its authors citing the awful prospect of losing a projected 200,000 American lives by November 1st as motivation for penning the message. Healthcare professionals are nobly bound to the hippocratic oath. But realistically, the idea of shutting America down again is impractical and insulting, especially to those who have complied with the first nationwide lockdown.

150 health experts? What makes them experts????
Is that 200,000 lives part of the 2,000,000 total deaths or in addition?
Somehow, someway - all this hysteria will magically disappear on November 4.
Let’s be really clear about this: The riots are because of the lockdown. And businesses are still failing. First the weak ones failed, then the less weak, etc. But make no mistake: Even if everything went back to business as usual starting today, the other side of the storm is still coming. It is the economic side. And it will make the Great Depression look like a dry run.
I’m preparing my property for my urban family members to be able to live here next year - just in case.
I think we already know these 150 “experts” are totally agenda driven Lefty kooks.
250,000 people die each year of hospital mistakes i read somewhere. Are these “health experts” going to shut us down for that?
more people have died from suicide and overdose from the Shutdown, than have died from the chicom flu.
We’re not doing another shutdown. The American people have moved on. That short attention span just can’t do a news story this long. My company is reopening the office. Because the country infection rate has dropped for 2 weeks solid. Mind you the state is still having over 1000 positive tests a day, and there were like 50 in the whole freaking state when we shut down. But hey, down for 2 weeks, reopen.
I’m staying home though. Not because of the virus. Because playoff hockey starts at 9AM. Forget the office until we’re in at least the 3rd round.
What if they has a shutdown and no one participated? What if all businesses, restaurants, stores etc just refused?
November 1st? Pretty easy to see the defeat Trump agenda here.
To truly stop this thing and prevent any more cases, you would have to lock everyone In their houses for eight weeks. No trips to the doctor, hospital, grocery, pharmacy, etc. no one goes anywhere. Period.
Since this is not possible, just open everything up and get it over with.
Top Health Statistics
Medical billing errors cost Americans $210,000,000,000 annually.
Roughly 12,000,000 Americans are misdiagnosed each year.
Medical errors cause an estimated 250,000 deaths in the United States annually.
As many as 80 percent of medical bills contain at least one error.
A little more than 4,000 surgical errors occur each year.
Its estimated that 7,000 to 9,000 patients die every year from medication errors.
The whole shutdown/lockdown/distancing/face mask thing was a hoax.
Even if Trump wins?
Even if Trump wins?
Yes. I can see CV19 lockdowns ending. Being replaced with lockdowns due to widespread rioting, looting and violence by Antifa/BLM terrorists.
Vaporizing the economy and destroying life for 300,000,000 plus people versus saving 200,000 people.
Could one of those who may die be someone I am close to? Considering that NO ONE escapes dying, and you WILL lose people close to you no matter what you do, to me that is an acceptable loss.
Yeah, I admit...it sucks, and it seems pretty cruel. I get that. But is it worth it to destroy the economy more than it has been torn up to save seven ten-thousandth of a percent...or less... of the population?
To me, the answer is pretty clear.
It will also be the beginning of flu season.
