So, with 70,000 dead at about 10k dollars a funeral, adds up to about 700 million dollars , funeral homes be making big bucks....just saying..
Gun deaths, car accidents, the flu, overdoses, they all kill about the same number of people every year, between 40,000 and 60,000.
Most people will tell you they know of someone who died from a gunshot, or overdose, or car accident, but almost no one knows anyone who died of the flu. Why is that?
It's because the number of flu deaths each year is largely made up, using complicated algorithms. When they actually count the number of flu deaths, it's about 4000 in most years, once in a while in a bad year its up there around 15,000.
Comparing COVID-19 Deaths to Flu Deaths Is like Comparing Apples to Oranges
Just the other day someone in front of me in line at the J commented that he didn't know what the big deal is, that this thing is no worse than the flu. If only he knew how wrong he was. I don't think he was a truck driver, though. Most truck drivers seem to realize this is different, even if they don't know the real numbers from the flu.That was a interesting article.
Perhaps if that message was spread around more, less people would be screaming to open the country back up. Or at least put on a mask if there going to scream
Except for the masks thing. We know why they kept telling us that masks don't work, but sheesh. It was a blatant lie. Adam Schiff level lying. I got a kick out of the Surgeon General on Fox and Friends when he said masks don't work, that a mask actually increases your chance of getting the virus. But they need them in hospitals. Kilmead gave him the ol' side eye. Two days later the Surgeon General walked it back, said new and improved CDC guidelines say masks work.It sure is comforting to know that government agencies lie to me for my own welfare.
