Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center

The Coronavirus Pandemic may be the first incident of an epidemic of an infectious disease in which the powers that be successfully quarantined the healthy population, ordered all healthy restaurants and taverns emptied of patrons, and ordered all non-infected businesses closed.
This has got to be a first in American history, if not world history.
The evil Machiavelli himself could not have thought of a better trick by which to induce massive panic in a population, bring about instant chaos, disorder, disruption of the norm and the overnight near total elimination of the formerly peaceful status quo.
And the near elimination of private business, private profit, worker's wages, peace and harmony. All of that is replaced by massive panic.
The First Amendment Rights are gone, in an instant, along with nearly all other Constitutional Rights. The American citizen no longer enjoys the individual citizen sovereignty formerly guaranteed by our Constitution. We can no longer make our own decisions regarding what we do with our life, and how we and we alone discriminate in all of our personal choices in the living of life. We are being made into not only indiscriminate, but unthinking herd animals, blindly following the directions of our new masters.
Unelected and unrepresentative deep-state bureaucrats, administrators and "experts" make the rules, for the good of the world, and we are expected to obey, for the good of the majority.
We are not to gather in groups larger than 50; we are to keep at least three feet between people in any gathering; we are not to be seated at table in any restaurant or tavern; etc., etc., etc.
By who's order? Some bureaucrat?
What will they do if we disobey? Arrest us?
For a violation of exactly what Constitutionally legislated and representative law?
Will some new quarantine police come around with yardsticks to make sure we all keep the exact dictated distance from each other?
What we are looking at here is a soft form of undeclared Marshal Law, willingly complied with by a well prepared, mal-educated and now thoroughly panicked citizenry. We, or most of us, have already been transformed from can-do, self-reliant, rugged-individualist sovereign citizens, and the final check on Constitutional government, into, essentially, compliant and obedient domestic servants of Der Stadt.
The Marxocrats and the Globalists, world-wide, advise President Trump to put his Presidency aside and follow the advice of the "experts". And they advise the now panic-stricken citizenry to put aside their Constitutional rights and follow the advice of the "experts".
Unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable "experts". And deep-state bureaucrats.
American Capitalism is, or was, rooted in a citizenry who held and exercised the American Constitutional Rights. When those rights are either taken away of meekly surrendered, Capitalism no longer exists.
Let us all try to remember that this Covid-19 is a cold virus.
We're not talking about the bubonic plague here. It's the common cold.
Oh, but it's so much more infectious, and unidentified asymptomatic carriers are walking around out there, so we've got to quarantine the whole world, is the standing expert argument.
When's the last time they tested any other corona virus or the common cold for how many unidentified asymptomatic carriers were walking around out there?
This is entirely new. It has become or been made into more of a political virus than a medical one. This is not any kind of plague, nor is it even a flue virus. It's a cold virus. The fatality rate in America is 1.9%, and in the world, 3.7%. We have better health care in America than in the outside world, and that is why our fatality rate, for everything, is lower.
We addressed this in Pandemic, in Coronavirus and in the Virus page. The common cold has been killing the elderly and the infirm all of our lives, and long before any of us were born; the common cold is what killed George Washington. Common sense rules apply here, not this "quarantine the healthy" nonsense.
My gut tells me that President Trump fully sees the big picture here, and is letting the thing play out, as a self-resolving problem. It's a typical epidemic, which will peak on its own and then subside. If a problem is a self-resolving problem, you get out of the way and let it resolve itself. All he can do is mitigate the negative aspects as much as he can, while Governors and Mayors do their best to wreck their own economies, for one reason or another.
It's a whole lot more political than it is medical.
In the end, God's will will be done.
Happy St. Patrick's day, and Happy Birthday Marcie.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

From another website.
The flu kills about 12,000 people in the U.S. each year, but the coronavirus is 10 times more deadly than the flu."
Skewed numbers. The flu mortality rate is based on estimated cases, which, in '18-'19, was 180 times that of confirmed cases. There were 220,000 confirmed flu cases and 22,000 deaths, which makes the flu mortality rate 10%.
C virus mortality is based on confirmed cases only, and in the US is 1%. If there are ten people who have it with no symptoms, mild symptoms, etc, who won't get tested, for every confirmed case - a ratio of 10:1, and that could be a lot higher - then the C virus mortality rate is .1% or less, more in line with the flu. Which means we've been played.

And the Marxists have encouraged people to become narcissists who only want to think about themselves. That extremely toxic mix, and the power grabbing un-elected bureaucrats, have led us to this wretched kettle of fish.

Mr. and Mary Ann:
An interesting note is that there is and can be no known number of actual infections of Covid-19, any other Corona virus, any yet known flue virus, or, in fact, any disease ever known to man. It's impossible to ever know that number. To know it, you would have to test every individual in the whole population with a test that produced no false negatives and no false positives.
Every disease, including Coronavirus, has patients who are treated and either get well or die, without ever being tested for Covid-19. And that is true of every other disease as well. It's a cold; medics treat the symptoms, and that's it.
Ohio governor Mike DeWine and his State Health Director Amy Acton are just lying through their teeth when they say that Ohio has 100,000 cases of Coronavirus. They made that up out of thin air. At this moment there are only 198,166 known cases in the whole world, and they would have us believe that most of them are in Ohio.
(See Coronavirus Update Live.)
To date there are 67 known cases in Ohio. Just a few less than 100,000. To date, the Coronavirus death rate in Ohio is zero.
We should not be too surprised that the whole population is being quarantined over 6,439 cases and 109 deaths in the USA, because we have the precedent of 9/11 to look at.
In that case, a group of Moslems did exactly what Mohammed tells all Moslems to do in the Koran, which was to spread death and terror widely among the infidels. And as a result, our government started searching, feeling-up, x-raying and even strip-searching all non-Moslems at airports. But not Moslems; that would be profiling. Can't have that.
Doesn't that sound like quarantining the healthy rather than the sick?
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
