Influenza Deaths Still Top COVID-19 Deaths in 2020

For months, we’ve been watching the death rates in Japan for COVID-19. In the end, it doesn’t matter how many people are ‘infected’, it’s all about how many people’s lives are impacted. In this case, it’s how many people died.

As businesses have been destroyed in 2020 due to virus fears, it’s important to keep our heads and keep everything in perspective. COVID has not killed as many people in Japan as has influenza in Japan, or even worst suicides, which have increased as people have been cooped up in their cramped homes. In October alone 2,153 people took their own lives in hopelessness Forbes reports.

If you do a bit of research, you will find cancer is one of the biggest causes of death in the land of the rising sun. However, add to that the various other causes such as traffic accidents, those who choke on traditional rice cakes (‘omochi’) during the new years holidays, and other causes of death to see that COVID is way overblown currently at 2,661 deaths in Japan. Will COVID deaths it catch up to the influenza death rate in the last few days of December 2020? Doubtful. Cancer was projected to take the lives of 222,500 males and 157,800 females in Japan by the Foundation for Promotion of Cancer Research here.

A Sad Day In American Government History

Voter fraud

News media statements about Presidential Election:

1. Immediately after election: “No evidence of voter fraud.”

2. One week after the election: “No evidence of wide scale voter fraud.”

3. Two weeks after election: “No evidence of systemic wide scale voter fraud.”

4. Three weeks after election: “No evidence of systemic wide scale voter fraud in enough areas to overturn the outcome of the election.”
Waiting for weeks 4 and 5 – maybe final statement is “Trump wins after proving wide scale systemic voter fraud in enough locations to change the outcome of the election” 😉

Is COVID just about generating fear?

he CDC released a report last week that mortalities in the U.S. pre-covid and during covid were essentially unchanged. The same number of people per 100,000 die each year. They separated it by age group expecting to see a spike in the rate for the elderly but were surprised that it too was unchanged.

The REASON for death changed for this group with Covid added as a new reason which topped heart disease, which is consistently the top cause.

Why are we so fearful of a “pandemic” that has a 99.97 survival rate that has not affected the death rate of the populace? This entire lockdown/shutdown/mask strategy is not scientific. It is soley based on control of the populace by generating fear.

One of America’s Greatest Presidents Donald Trump

We lived through 8 years of Obama. We will survive this. Keep your chin up and don’t complain. We had a great president in Donald Trump who, despite constant attacks, accomplished more good for this country than any president in history. And the news never gave him credit.

He exposed corruption in the deep state, grew the economy and jobs, appointed an unbelievable number of conservative judges, strenghtened our military, solved problems with the VA, brokered peace deals in the middle east that no one else ever got done, secured our borders, lowered taxes, dealt with Chinese trade issues, saved our steel industry, promoted black colleges and enterprise zones for minority communities, achieved energy independence and I could go on an on. He worked like a dog for this country and got no recognition for it.

NO ONE has done so much for this country in the face of so much opposition. Melania was the most beautiful, intelligent and graceful first lady since Jacki Kennedy. Yet no talk shows had her on. No magazines featured her. No White House tours. No fawning over her like Michelle. But that’s OK.

People that love this country know and appreciate the Trumps. Donald was just what we needed. He was not a politician, and that’s why so many of us love him. He said what he felt and we appreciated that. He knows and loves American and working Americans and we can feel that. He is a great great man and I am proud to have supported him.

An incompetent President -Joe Biden

It is not so much that Trump lost, it is more how he lost and who he lost to. At some point we may hear the real truth, but I doubt it very much. Our self appointed royalty class needs to be replaced and term limits need to be put in place.

I am an independent, raised in an all democrat family and I lean conservative. That being said, Joe Biden is not a quality president. He does not have the strength, ability, mental accumen or mental toughness to be president. There were so many potential candidates that the dems started out with that were so much more qualified that Joe Biden.

I don’t believe that he will mentally and possibly physically make it through the next four years healthy. I pray that I am wrong, but even at that, he is not qualified to be president. I just wish that the dems would have put up someone else that is better equipped. No, I am not bitter about any of it.

Biden may have been duly elected, but he will go down as an inadequate president. Oh what I wouldn’t give for a JFK or Ronald Reagan.

Is America Splitting Apart?

Geography is showing republicans (conservatives) the wisdom of our founders in establishing a republic rather than a pure democracy.

The popular vote in cities and urban areas is overpowering the rest of the nation. Urban areas absolutely depend on the production of the rural areas and seem to completely discount their reliance on us to supply food, water, manufacturing and consume products that “big city” companies produce – although they produce them in our geography.

America will split over this unless wiser – more cool-headed people start thinking about unifying around the few things upon which we agree. If there’s not enough to bring some cohesion, this may be our last national election as the U.S.A.

The Biases and Exaggerations Of CBS’ 60 Minutes

From a Bright Citizen Reader

Back in the 70s, I went with my dad (an electrical engineer for GE) to a presentation by Illinois Power. They first showed the “60 Minutes” episode that was done about an IP nuclear power plant, pointing out all the lies the officials told and stuff like that.

BUT, Illinois Power had done ONE thing right — THEY HAD FILMED everything presented to the “60 Minutes” crew, and the additional footage PROVED WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT that “60 Minutes” had PURPOSELY distorted the information presented to them.

For example, on the flow chart for how long it would take IP to move the reactor from the rail car into position, it showed 4 weeks. “60 Minutes” showed they only took 1 day and stating that the time frame was purposely exaggerated.

BUT IP’s film showed the “60 Minutes” reporter being told that the 4 weeks included all the preparation and testing time required by law before the actual move, but THAT information was conveniently left out of “60 Minutes” show.

MY POINT? NOBODY should watch “60 Minutes” — EVER.
