The Truth Hurts

Let the virus spread . . . Herd Immunity, here we come!


Sad for these deaths. The number of new cases is irrelevant information...hospitalizations and ICU capacity would be useful. Consider that in Oregon every day 22 people die of cancer, 19 people die of heart disease, 5 people die of respiratory disease, 5 people die in accidents, 5 people die of strokes, 5 people die of Alzheimer, 3 people die of diabetes, 2 people die of flu/pneumonia, and 24 unborn children are killed. So, covid deaths are just part of the tragedy in life that is normal.
