N14 everyday 1 mile N of Ribs, 12 to 1
Everyday I take my chair and my "Liberty Is Essential' sign to the highway, smile and wave. I get many 'right on' waves and honks. Yet some really nasty responses. Yesterday a 'lady' in her thirties slowed to give me the finger and bellowed 'f&%$ you'. I had no American Flag so her reaction was to the message. Sad. I wonder if she kisses her kids with that mouth.
Our Gov, Michele Grisham is lying to us with phony statistics. She is using the increasing total number of reported cases to justify her lockdown. BUT the number of tests are increasing at the same time. Even if the virus does not spread, if the testing numbers increase there will always be more cases found everyday. You don't have to be an epidemiologist to know that this is disingenuous at best. BTW she is joined by an ignorant and mendacious media doing the same.
Antibody testing has shown that Gov Michele Grisham is misinformed about the actual death rate of corona virus. Along with many others, she stated that the death rate due to the virus is the total deaths divided by the number of cases found (but only people with symptoms were tested). New wide spread antibody testing in NYC and LA reveal that the virus has penetrated the US population an estimated 30 to 80 times the number of symptomatic cases confirmed. That means that the NM death rate after infection changes from 2.9% to between 0.04% to 0.06% of those infected. Corona virus is close to the death rate of influenza. BUT corona appears to be far more contagious, so the potential of harm is much greater than the flu.
Our Gov, Michele Grisham has falsely told NM that all citizens are at risk of death from the virus. Early on, the CDC published that the average age of corona virus victims was 80 years. Risk factors are compromised immune systems due to advanced age and underlying disease. Corona attacks our elders and the medically vulnerable. Every NM corona virus death included co-morbidities (underlying disease). In New York, out of about 20,000 deaths, only 128 seemed to have no underlying disease. The young and healthy are at very low risk of death from the virus.
Gov Grisham - change course now. Let's protect the vulnerable and quickly free healthy people before their lives and livelihoods are destroyed. Will you listen to the people' cries and the actual facts or will you CYA for your proven misguided policies?
We must light a huge fire so the Gov will see the light. Before the economy is destroyed and we become paupers from misguided government diktat.
