My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

CORONA VIRUS— REAL OR NOT!!!

I have heard from both sides of this issue and have yet had anyone convince me one way or the other. The Chinese Flu started in Wuhan, China and was called the Wuhan Flu by almost everyone at first. Then, someone hollered racist; so now, it is the Chinese Flu, I guess. But, the liberal bastages don’t like that name either. It also is racist. It is where it originated and that is how most if not all flu’s are named.  Is it as bad as some claim, “who the hell knows”? There is not even an accurate test for it yet. I just heard one of the experts explain about the WHO test that has not been approved for use here, because it may produce 50/60% false positive readings. Think about that for a moment, folks. If that is true, then that is why America did not purchase the test from the WHO. Also, if true, then the numbers we are looking at in these other countries could be “half-ass” numbers.

Think about how many people died back in ’09 of the (H1N1) Swine flu. If my numbers are right, it was about 17K people who died but none of the panic we see now. Each year somewhere from 30/40K people die from the regular flu and yet no panic. You could, back then, even at the peak of the outbreak, get all the toilet paper you needed. I will admit that I also prepared and I am hiding on the ranch. I prepared by making sure I had plenty of “Hersey’s Chocolate Nuggets”, “Famous Amos cookies” and lots of “Pringles” to make it thru the hard times. I never once gave a thought to “TP”. I guess this “old redneck” just has lots of ways and things to cover that chore.

As mentioned above, 17K people died in 2009 of the swine flu; so if you divide that by 12 (for you liberals—12 months in a year), that is just over 1400 deaths a month. So far in about 2 months, we have about 80 deaths with this “Chink Flu” (guess that name would be offensive, too). So, if you multiply that out, it comes to 960 deaths in a year. Please feel free to check my math because the only math I was ever good at is how much someone owed me in dollars. And I was always really, really good on the collection side. I’m not claiming that this will come out this way; but, what I am trying to convey is that we might, just might, be letting the “liberal bastages” and the media hype this out of proportion. (Sorry for the redundancy in the statement of liberals/media).

Please, take all precautions to keep you and your families safe; but, please use “COMMON SENSE” in the decision as you go forward. Wash you hands, use disinfectant wipes and use social distancing if you please and try to avoid people who look like they may be carriers. HAHA!!! And one last tip for you! You can not catch the “Chink Flu” from eating Chinese food; so, support your local Chinese restaurant by visiting or at least ordering “Chinese Take Out”. Tip—be sure to eat the fortune cookie as it will “kill the virus”. HAHA.

    The following is part of an article by Roger Taylor, “Coronavirus Crisis Highlights Socialism in Government”
    “Bottom line, the numbers do NOT support this outrageous response. Even in the so-called epicenter of this “crisis,” New York. Although the numbers vary based on the time one looks at them, it seems reasonable to say that New York City has a population of around 8 million, and at some point—in recent days—there were 80,000 confirmed cases in New York City. Simple math tells us that is ONLY 0.1 percent of the population. That means that 99.9 percent of the population does NOT have the virus! It also means that the number of confirmed infections must double to 160,000 to increase to 0.2 percent of the population, again meaning that 99.8 percent of the population does NOT have the virus!

    Speaking nationally, at the first of the week (4/5/2020), the numbers were around 330,000 infected nationwide. With a population of around 330 million, that represents 0.01 percent of the population. In other words, 99.99 percent of the population does NOT have the virus!”
