I heard the President announce that January’s Covid deaths was the highest yet. So after a year of mask, shutdowns, school closings, social distancing and economic devastation we have the most deaths. If any of these things worked why are we worse off now then last March. 

Yesterday I read that Dr. Fauci and the CDC are going to study if wearing two masks will improve their effectiveness. I doubt it. I seem to remember in fifth grade math they taught us two times zero is still zero. Why not get a clear plastic bag, put it over your head, tie it at the neck guaranteed to prevent Covid. To paraphrase Winston Churchill “never have so few caused so much pain to so many.”

Observing so many of our so called leaders ignoring the mandates they expect us to obey lets you know they don’t believe their own rules, Dr. Fauci at the ballpark, Governor Gavin Newsome dining out, President Biden and family at the Lincoln Memorial and of course Speaker Pelosi at the beauty parlor. I cringe to think of how much damage we’ve done to a generation of school children especially those from low income families most who will catch back up.

Then there’s our governor arrogant Andy Cuomo whose  decision on sending Covid positive people back to nursing homes even though he was told they had no way to isolate them. How could he not be aware that people are in nursing homes due to failing health and the last thing they needed was to be exposed to others with a highly contagious virus. He then proceeded to lie about the results and refused to release the number of fatalities. He just lost another court case which might force him to release the actual numbers. He and his Democratic colleagues in the State Legislator then passed a law so the families of the victims cannot sue.

He does, however, deserve his Emmy for the daily TV show of a complete incompetent acting like he’s the best governor in the country.
