Imprisoned Earth

And we are now under house arrest in Idaho, where there have been ZERO deaths from the virus that will still kill exponentially fewer people than the common flu.

Worldwide, the death rate has ramped all the way up to 0.0002%. Seems like a good reason to imprison the planet in their homes and destroy the economy.

If this ever ends, all blame goes to a hysterical media that breathlessly announces new cases every day but never puts them in context. After the president announced that a combination of an old malaria drug and an antibiotic were showing effectiveness in curing the sick, The New York Times dutifully reported that Trump was exaggerating how well it worked. And that right there tells you all you need to know about the media and its handling of this farce. They don't want people to get well. They want you terrified, and they want to tank the economy, because after Russiagate and impeachment didn't work, surely this will. That's more important than tamping down the panic and curbing the spread of the virus.

They are the enemy. Not a virus. Not the president (though he could be pushing back far more than he has been). The media.

Turn off your TVs and stop reading the papers. They're only making the insanity worse.
