One of the definitions of a fanatic is someone who redoubles their efforts after losing sight of their goal. That definition fits California health department "experts."
Their latest idiocy concerns "Flumanchu" rules for golfers.
For those of you who don’t play, we’d like to refresh your memory concerning the game.
Golf is played outside on a course that occupies an average of 150 acres of land.
Golf is played in the open air where sunlight kills the Kungflu and the breeze disperses it.
Golfers may have invented "social distancing," because no golfer wants another player hovering over him as he lines up a shot.
The closest players come to each other is if they use a cart, then two golfers sit in the front as the cart moves through the countryside essentially providing its own breeze.
Once the cart stops, the golfers get out and play again.
Golfers rarely come into contact other than the occasional pat on the back or handshake.
And even if they hugged like sorority girls it would make no difference.
The NFL has found no instance of "Wuflu" transmission during games that are filled with contact and collisions.
And that is the science surrounding golf.
And here is the hysterical, superstition-based rules for golf just issued by Los Angeles county health authorities. All golf reservations are immediately canceled through this week.
All golfers are ordered to rebook their tee times and to make sure everyone in the playing group is from the same household.
All of this is absurd, unscientific — and insulting.
Yes, reported cases are going up, but so is testing which results in more cases being discovered. This time of year — before the "Kungflu" — hospitals normally saw a large increase in ICU admissions due to the regular seasonal flu (a disease that appears to have suddenly been wiped out, since no one reports having normal flu anymore).
This latest set of Pandemic Panic rules is just reinforcing failure.
Lockdowns don’t work.
Hysterical additional lockdowns based on a feverish refusal to admit past lockdowns didn’t work only serve to push people that much closer to actual revolt.
(We were going to say these medieval lockdowns also destroy public confidence in government, but we’re past the point of no return there already.)
Peru had the toughest lockdown in the world earlier this year and the nation was applauded by all the "experts."
Jordan Schachtel writes, "For months on end, Peruvians were largely forbidden from leaving their homes. The country began its lockdown like many others, by cutting itself off from the rest of the world, closing its borders to outsiders, and shutting down the nation’s economy and society. …only 'essential' businesses were allowed to be open. The military has enforced a nationwide mandatory 10pm-4am curfew most 'essential' stores are only open for a handful of hours a day, and citizens face extreme penalties and legal consequences for failing to abide by the rigid restrictions."
And the result?
"Once hailed as a COVID-19 success story, Peru is now the COVID-19 case study that lockdown advocates no longer want to discuss. Lima is on pace to surpass Belgium (another strict lockdown country) sometime next week as having the world’s highest COVID-19 deaths per million."
That is the science.
These dollar store dictators running public health organizations can’t punish the virus, so they continue to punish us.
Give people information and let them live their lives.
End these punitive, nonsensical lockdowns now.
