Kansas City hospitals turn away ambulances due to COVID-19 patients
Lockdowns are always the wrong policy excpet for the time when hospitals and health workers are so overburdened as to make the pandemic and other health problems more severe or consequencial.
The odd reality is that the dissenting scientists are the mainstream and who we were told were mainstream scientists are the outliers. Our progressive Governors are listening to the outliers and locking down the economy when there is no reason to do so. This does much harm and not good. Not only does this harm the poor in the state and the nation, but it also harms the poor internationally. It also dries up resources for the cities, counties, and states by deeply cutting tax revenues. It further drives many people in the middle and working classes into poverty and homelessness, burdening public resources that much more at a time when resources are under serious revenue pressures already.
This is madness, not reasoned policy. Our progressive states' governors have acted independently without input from the legislatures or the public to do great harm. In New York, Michigan, and many other states, the governors implemented state orders that Covid infected elderly must be returned to their care homes or facilities to lower the hospitals' burden. The result was an epidemic of Covid illnesses among the most vulnerable elderly and a massive cascade of elderly sick on the hospitals. This was straightforward gross negligence. Because the consequences were so well understood, these cases should be investigated as manslaughter for all in the command chain who developed and implemented these policies.
This will not happen because our corrupt system is designed to protect those wielding power from accountability. This lack of accountability has driven us to the place we are today with rampant political corruption. A media which has been bought off by the Democratic Party to become the party's propaganda machine. The Academe that is all in with the most absurd far-leftist positions one can take.
