This is the government's own data folks....
The question is this -- in less than five minutes you will understand the truth, so now will you shove it up your local and state authoritarian jackwads' ass? Or are you going to consent to being raped of your humanity today, tomorrow and forward?
This is not my computation or set of assumptions, it is the government's own data with regard to whether "Covid" is dangerous or not. Just the facts folks, just the facts.
It's pretty simple folks. A bug that you are materially more-likely to survive, if you get it, than your base risk of survival over a given year is absolutely not something to fear or take "special consideration" over. Remember that you cannot avoid the all-cause risk of death; that is, the mere fact that you're alive forces you to take the bottom figure in risk. But, when it comes to Covid19, you might have T-cell recognition and be immune or you might have had a "silent" infection and be immune. Further, since we know antibodies often wane quickly you can't easily find out if either is true.
The point is simply this; even in the worst case scenario, since the CDC's numbers assume infection which of course is not certain, you're less likely to die of Covid, if you don't have it right now, than those survival numbers tell you since you might not get it. But you cannot control the all-cause risk, and it is greater than Covid's risk.
In other words there is exactly zero justification for any sort of broad-based mandate, period.
Incidentally the CDC calculations are full of fraud. They're frauds because errors go both directions yet all of these overstate mortality. Let's go down the list one at a time:
But even accepting these falsehoods, including the one the CDC documents itself on its own page as being a lie, there is absolutely nothing to fear from Covid-19 in terms of general public health. It simply is not overly dangerous when compared with the basic and inescapable risks that come with being alive.
Tell all local, county and state government officials to shove their "mandates" up their ass. There is zero justification for any of them. Further, if you're being told you must comply at work -- go on strike with everyone else at your place of employment until the mandates are removed.
**** these people. Say no, mean it, and do whatever is necessary to enforce it.
