Common Sense Deserts

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Two thirds of the reported coronavirus deaths have occurred in just seven states: New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Pennsylvania, California, Michigan and Connecticut. Urban areas are the centers of infection with other areas showing significantly fewer cases and often zero hospitalizations. Yet the seven Democrat governors have imposed drastic restrictions over the entire states. Now all have current lawsuits pending against them challenging these severe restrictions.

If you’re considering moving to one of these states, take a lot of money for the taxes, record all the regulations and laws because they will arrest you. They’ve got room in the jails now because they released most of the criminals. Don’t take a gun and be prepared to be shut in for a long, long time. The mayor of Los Angeles says their quarantine will last until a cure is found.

California was recently pleading for federal money to avoid bankruptcy but Governor Newsom just gave $75 million to illegals instead of helping citizens out of work. In fact the helpline to receive the money crashed from requests. Newsom chose to do this after a Supreme Court ruling May 7 that it is a felony to encourage illegals to reside in the U.S. Michigan kept abortion clinics open but ordered elective surgeries put on hold as did many other states.

The leftist media and usual suspects in the DNC have been attacking states that reopened with dark and ominous warnings of massive deaths. The Atlantic published an article entitled Georgia’s Experiment in Human Sacrifice. CNN viciously went after Florida Governor DeSantis listing his alleged mistakes in dealing with the pandemic.

Georgia and Florida have not seen the massive deaths that occurred in New York and Pennsylvania during the time since reopening. In New York and Pennsylvania officials ordered nursing homes to take active cases. This put them with the most vulnerable people while at the same time refusing to allow families to visit. New York Governor Cuomo was surprised to learn two thirds of the active cases in New York were happening while people have been on strict quarantine.

Don’t expect much from the media about why the Pennsylvania Secretary of Health’s 95 year old mother was removed from a nursing home directed to take active coronavirus patients. CNN is more interested in ranting about Trump not wearing a mask. Then Kaitlan Collins of CNN, when she thinks the cameras are turned off, is shown taking off her mask and not social distancing.

The leftist mantra you’re going to hear now is “food deserts.” What should be more troubling is what is happening in these seven states and with the media. They are actually “common sense deserts“ where politics overrules everything else. Is this what we want for America for the next four years? We have a choice.
