Shift the Paradigm

Quit Looking At the World Through Your Ass

During the last debate I heard some pretty wild claims that President Trump is responsible for 240,000 deaths from COVID-19. I also heard his rival Joe Biden promise that he had a plan that follows the science and that will protect us from COVID-19 deaths. The problem is that he didn’t really explain what his plan is. I think we are looking at the problem totally wrong. We shouldn’t be looking at how many deaths there were, but rather how many lives were saved.

All of the claims are based on following the science. The only science anyone has are the predictive models. All of the scientific models used back in March, 2020 predicted over that over 1.7 million deaths will occur if no action whatsoever is taken. Without any knowledge of how the virus spread, or why it spreads so quick, or why it affects some people and not others was totally unknown. All the science knew was based on experience gained from previous viruses like H1N1, SARS, and MERS.

Biden very boldly claimed the President is responsible for all the 224,000 COVID-19 deaths in the United States. I rather like the fact that the President saved 1.5 million lives with the action he took as early as he did.

Biden’s logic that his new COVID-19 plan will save lives. Joe’s plan, as far as I know it, is exactly the same as Trump’s which began in March, 2020, and will save the same number of lives that Trump’s plan is doing. Testing is another complaint that Biden has. Testing does not kill the virus, it merely lets us know who does or doesn’t have the virus at the time of the test. One could go home from the test and get it. But Biden believes that everyone in the country should be tested and the responsibility of testing should be given to the Federal government (another Bureaucracy in the making). If we choose to do that we will be looking for adequate testing capacity two years from now. Another part of his plan is to involve the federal government in how you will protect your people in the workplace. Again, a noble idea but scary as hell. I, for one, would not want the Feds to come into my place of business and dictate how I should run my process. I will protect my workers by the best means I have, but one of the means is not the Federal government. Biden’s plan is expensive, time consuming, and redundant. Trump put together a viable plan in less than two months bringing ventilator production on line, developing and implementing testing, and manufacturing PPE for the country. What new things Biden brings to the table with his plan is negligible.

No doubt, what is not shown in Biden’s plan are new laws that will make not wearing a mask, and not social distancing at all times, a federal offense punishable by huge fines and jail time.

What we need is a presidential candidate who does not ride on the success of his rival but rather depends on the common sense of we of the people to control the virus. All of Biden’s actions do not erase the virus they merely delay one from getting it, and we can do that ourselves. As long as there is COVID-19 there will be deaths attributed to it, even when we have drugs that will keep us alive.

Just as Obama Care has a death panel whose job it is to decide who will be treated and who will not, I’m sure Biden-Care will treat COVID-19 patients with the same compassionate care and allow nature take it’s course when dealing with difficult to treat souls.

Fire Fly Air Force-Chapter 4

Chapter 4

By the fourth week of summer, Ben became bored with vacation. He loved school and longed for classes, homework, and science projects. Morty Angel knew what Ben was thinking. He whispered into Ben’s ear, “Start a science project on your own.”

It was not long before Ben asked his mom if he could do a project.

“Sure, honey, go ahead and start a project. Let me know what I can do to help,”

With her encouragement, Ben was off to the library to search for a project. Two hours later, he left the library very confused. He saw so many things that he wanted to do, and he did not know where to start.

Later that evening, Ben played outside with friends. Morty tried suggesting a project again, only this time he said, “Start a project on the bioluminescence of lightening bugs. Study how a lightening bug lights his tail.” This time, Ben heard Morty’s suggestion.


It was getting dark, almost time to go in for the night. The fireflies were beginning to light up all around the yards.

“I know,” Ben, said, “Let’s collect lightening bugs.” He ran into the house to ask Mom if he could have a bottle with a lid, “I want to collect lightening bugs for a science project. Can I stay out to catch them?”

“What a great idea,” she said. “Stay around our house, and when I call, come in.”

“I will Mom.”

Morty raised his arms above his head. He did a victory dance. Again, he made a positive influence on Ben.
