    Default The Barrington Declaration

    .
    The world renowned experts in their fields, after a 4 day conference regarding COVID-19, declare that WE SHOULD ALL GO BACK TO LIVING NORMALLY, PRACTICING SIMPLE HYGIENE & STAYING HOME WHEN SICK (NO FACE MASKS OR SOCIAL DISTANCING) and only protect the most vulnerable populations with more protective measures!

    “From October 1-4, 2020, the American Institute for Economic Research had a remarkable meeting of top epidemiologists, economists, and journalists, to discuss the global emergency created by the unprecedented use of state compulsion in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. The result is The Great Barrington Declaration, which urges a “Focused Protection” strategy.”

    “Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.”

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    just no more damn lockdowns.
    I personally dont think masks do a damn thing except create a false sense of security.

    We've seen lockdowns dont stop it -it's way too contagious; we should quarantine the high risk ( like my family)
    and live our lives otherwise
    Think "collateral damage" for canceling gatherings, and lockdowns

    Instead parts of Europe have decided to attempt to force their citizens into a new lockdown.

    This is insanity and faith in our leaders will suffer for it.

    The medical bureaucracy scared my governor into locking WV down when we were under 100 cases. It accomplished absolutely nothing but killing a bunch of jobs and small businesses. When we opened back up, nothing happened. Literally, nothing.

    It was the most asinine government action I’ve ever witnessed but I don’t blame Jim Justice—or Trump for it. I blame the blithering idiots who were basing their projections on *absolutely worthless* computer models.

    It wasn’t until late summer that WV started seeing significant numbers. If lockdowns worked, that was when we should have locked down but that, thankfully, was never on the table.

    Everyone of those scientists who signed that declaration are as reputable as any other but their proclamation will be dismissed—because why, is the only question.

    DUH, so let me get this straight.... as West Virginia slowly opened up, it took a little while before the cases started increasing? ROTLFMFAO!!! Of course there was going to be a delay. When the phased reopening started in May, WV had an average of 20 cases a day. By May 27th, the 7 day average had increased by 250%, then by July they had increased from May's low by 650 PERCENT.

    Do you just roll out of bed and decide what lies you're going to post today?

    No he did not. Coal was dropping for decades. Automation was taking jobs for decades. Mountaintop does the same.

    An excuse for you lying? What excuse is that. You're dishonest? We knew that. Your claim was that absolutely nothing happened. Your claim is a lie.

    Why should I accept your “took a little while excuse”?

    The fact is your hero’s in the medical bureaucracy told the lie: WV was going to suffer “a tsunami” [governors exact words] if WV didn’t lockdown. So we locked down, jobs were lost, businesses shut down and when we opened back up LITERALLY NOTHING HAPPENED RELATIVE TO ANY TSUNAMI. There was never going to be a “tsunami” in WV, regardless. Lockdown no lockdown.

    It was like a bad joke. And you goof balls applauded it. And no, don’t bother peddling any more excuses for it because I’m not buying them.
