Understanding Covid

Colleges should have been the first major hot spots

Not only were they not first, none are hot spots. Do the experts really understand Covid?

Those college students, many with older parents at home, would have then infected their parents. Easy tracing. But this is not happened. Why?

Why Lombardy Italy, NYC, nursing homes?


Politicians continually fanning the flames need to turn down the volume. They must stop condemning and insulting anyone they disagree with. And, stop making enemies between Identity and Interest Groups.

Regulation and globalism have put US labor out of work. People in the work force are a possible asset, but also a big contingent liability.
Robots don’t sue or assert any of 100’s of human workers’ rights.
And US citizens can’t “waive” their rights as do H-1B and illegal alien workers.
Workers organize or a little wage inflation? Employers then just move the jobs off-shore.
