This is just my opinion.  All I’m doing is trying to stimulate people’s brain cells.

Could I be wrong?  Yes.

Could I be right?  Yes.

It’s not my job to tell you what to think.  It is my job to ask people to think on what I’m about to write.


If you’re on Facebook, please visit YAL and watch this video by Legislator Dr. Rick Becker, who discusses how government intervention will only worsen the impact of the COVID-19 crisis:


According to the CDC:

Leading Causes of Death

Data are for the U.S.A. from 2017

Number of deaths for leading causes of death
  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
  • Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
  • Diabetes: 83,564
  • Influenza and pneumonia: 55,672
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,633
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173


According to

The number of people who have died in the USA from the coronavirus:  1,034

We are shut down, and free enterprise is dying.  

I can understand taking precautions for vulnerable people (such as medically compromised and people living in nursing homes).

I can understand hand washing, an activity that most people with common sense were doing years before a pandemic.

I can’t understand closing an entire country down.

Putting this into perspective, if we used the same rationale for the top 3 Deaths (stats from 2017)

  • Heart disease: 647,457
  • Cancer: 599,108
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936

All cars, and anything that caused cancer (such as pollutants and insecticides) would be banned.  We’d be relegated to vegetables and no child would know the joy of eating a birthday cake.

Tell me one thing that can’t kill us?  

Dogs?  I’ve tripped over mine so many times I stopped counting.  Once, an exuberant 80 pound dog pushed me off the steps.

Food?  Heart attacks, cancer, diabetes.  Some crops are sprayed with insecticide to hasten drying. Traces of glyphosate are in oatmeal (there was a lawsuit over this a few years back).  What is an “allowable level” today might not be considered so in 10 years.

Medication:  Do I really need to go into the Opiod, Vioxx and Felbatol scandals?

Cars?   In 2016, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that 37,461 people were killed in 34,436 accidents.  That’s around 102 per day.

Walking?   My mom told me the story of a man who escaped death during war just to slip on a banana peel and die.  Don’t know if I believe it, but I can assure you that people who text and walk are tempting death.

Here’s something else that is conveniently forgotten:  We can flatten the curve all we want — and yes, that will help keep medical personnel from being overloaded.  What we’re not hearing as much about is the people who are being reinfected.  

In summary: We can’t escape everything that can kill us.  However, we can destroy our economy trying to do it.  

Why can’t we find a middle ground between this (otherwise called “tyranny”):


And this (otherwise called stupidity):

Woman intentionally coughs on grocery store’s food — so store is forced to throw away $35,000 in wasted items. 

Missouri man charged with licking items at Walmart to moc coronavirus fears.
