USA TODAY: My Recommendations for Biden Covid Policy

USA TODAY asked its Board of Contributors for Covid policy recommendations for Biden. Here are my two cents:

Stop the lockdowns and shutdowns

Biden should condemn the lockdowns and shutdowns that have caused vast economic and social damage (soaring drug abuse, suicides, depression) while failing to prevent more than 100 million Americans from becoming infected with COVID (based on the CDC’s estimate in December that only 1 out of 7 of cases are reported).   Biden should reproach teacher unions for blocking school reopening; low-income and minority students have been devastated and the “achievement gap” has ballooned. He should drop his National Mask Mandate: imposing the same policy on the New York subway and Idaho mountaintops makes no sense.  Biden should recognize that promising to inject 100 million vaccines in 100 million arms in 100 days is a recipe for a bureaucratic train wreck. Government policies should focus on protecting the most vulnerable while minimizing the restrictions and losses imposed on everyone else. The past 10 months have proven that Pandemic Security Theater won’t save this nation.

    But Kabuki theater, mass fearmongering, economic destruction, and all the rest, were NEVER about the virus. They were about engendering compliance, creating mass fear, laying the groundwork for easily corruptible mail-in ballots, and stealing an election. Around the rest of the world, they were about compliance, mass fear, and destroying the economy to create greater government dependence in preparation for the “Great Reset” of the WEF. Sadly, not enough have figure out their plans yet. Their agenda is nearly complete. They certainly aren’t going to embrace any common sense at this point in the play. There are still a few acts to go.
