Posted on 05/02/2020 8:35:39 AM PDT by SilvieWaldorfMD
From an Unhinged Liberal: More deaths from Coronavirus in the US than many wars - and of course thats with lots of remediation in place. You do realize thats more Americans (in just 3 months) than were lost in the Vietnam War (58,200), the First World War (53,402), the Korean War (36,574), the 2003 Iraq conflict (4,431) and the Afghanistan misadventure, the longest armed conflict in American history (2,445).
Vietnam, oh you mean, LBJ’s War?
One of the biggest con jobs the Left has pulled off is by turning Vietnam into “Nixon’s War” and totally removing all mentions of LBJ’s role in it.
Sorry, one too many P’s. Planned Parenthood...
I kept trying to make Planned Parenthood out of it, but was coming up short for the last P. Thanks, and you are correct. 8>)
If we had deployed 350 million to Vietnam there would have been far fewer deaths on our side and total destruction of Asia. Of course they cherry pick their statistics to make whatever twisted point that they want.
Who gives a flying f ck what any liberal thinks?
Oh, you mean those two wars that Democrat Presidents got us into.
Truman and Johnson...
I would like to see a map of Corona deaths in the US by county.
Odd that it resembles the map of counties that Hillary won against Trump in the 2016 election.
Also remind them to take a look at NY
1/3 or more of all US deaths coming from one state
1/2 if count NJ
So 2 states
Half or more of those deaths coming from care homes and elderly 70+ and underlying conditions
Seriously, selective statistics without context or relationships are MEANINGLESS except to the already credulous. By that I mean the legendary "Low Information Voters" and LEFTists and Democrats, but I just repeated myself 3 times!
Actually, I'd be willing to bet that we have had a net DECREASE in total deaths for this period but at a tremendous FINANCIAL COST. When Gov.Cuomo[?] says he would be satisfied if it just saved one life I'd ask him if he is tracking the long-term costs that can easily have increases in financial ruin and suicides!
Remember this; There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics. ― Benjamin Disraeli
Also there is evidence that all respiratory illnesses are being counted as Covid-19 deaths, even without checking to see if they have the virus or not. Plus they are underlying health issues so even if they had Covid-19 it is impossible to know what actually killed many of these people.
Invalid comparison. It has no validity. It all depends on how people choose to count deaths, and assign the count a label. The inclusiveness of the counts, and the labels, are both arbitrary. So no comparison is possible.
All three are victims of Communism.
Yes, Cuomo seeded nursing homes all over the state with elderly covid patients while the Comfort and Javits Center sat largely empty
( both of which were accidentally infected and then converted to covids facilities at Cuomos demand)
>>Invalid comparison. It has no validity<<
Deaths by vehicles last year: ~40,000
People die from all kinds of things. And there is not a single empirical fact that says the numbers would be any fewer if different actions had been taken.
For self=styled “science” people, logic and quantitative math seem to be WAY out of the left’s reach.
As a survivor of the swine flu of 1976, I am one of the 7 that were infected on Dover AFB, Del., where was the media outcry then?
And why do you drag the memories of our war dead, down to equivocating with a stupid virus?
i remember that...think the vaccine killed more than the actual flu...
Estimate of deaths associated with influenza from a flu season of 8 months (October through May) for 2017-2018: 61,099.
Did we send Soldiers to fight those Wars who were over 70 Years Old and in bad Health?
The best response, “so what’s your point”? Make them explain the idiotic comparison.
You can’t fight nonsensical Liberal blathering. They do the same thing regarding “Gun Violence” in order to take away our Civil Rights. Nothing new here...
There were 67,367 drug overdose deaths in 2018. So far, there have only been 66,259 new coronavirus deaths.
You could say the same about the seasonal flu in many years, and the hypocrite liberals can be reminded they have never raised a big stink about that.
