While we worry about the spread of the Chinese virus, we should also be worried about the ill effects of the quarantine itself.
Not only is the quarantine damaging our economy, but tens of millions of Americans are suffering. They are bored, angry, lonely, worried, cooped-up and depressed. This is very detrimental to their long-term health, perhaps moreso than the virus itself.
For instance, there is evidence that divorce rates are going to soar under the quarantine as people are trapped in the house with a spouse with whom they are disagreeing. The artificial quarantine may be creating new tensions or exacerbating underlying conditions that may have existed before the quarantine.
The quarantine is forcing Americans to stay indoors. Nikitas3.com walks 2 to 3 miles every single day, even during the quarantine. I do not feel good if I don’t move around and get fresh air. On the other hand this type of quarantine is making people feel psychologically and physically trapped indoors. In a place like New York City, with its tiny apartments, this must be doubly devastating.
If you are feeling sick, one of the best things that you can do is to get outdoors and be active in the fresh air. But tens of millions of people are not even going outside.
At the same time millions of Americans are gaining weight to unhealthy levels during quarantine since they are home all day and have nothing to do but go on the computer, watch TV, eat and snack.
Meanwhile millions of Americans are depressed about the effects of being alone and they are desperately worried about money. This is damaging their health as they are stuck indoors. These people need to get back to work!
One estimate says that 80,000 Americans could commit suicide over the virus crisis and that a similar number are going to defer medical treatment and die out of fear of going to the hospital or the doctor. In other words, the quarantine is probably worse than the virus.
Tens of millions of Americans are living in fear of the virus. This is going to damage these people psychologically in both the short term and the long-term, including children. They are being traumatized by this Chinese virus.
These anti-virus face masks are unhealthy. They are blocking normal breathing and getting clogged with all sorts of body fluids from breath, lungs and noses. Millions of Americans certainly are seeing their health damaged by the masks.
Thus Democrats are using the virus crisis to control the people with emotion and fear under the quarantine. When people are afraid, they often will sacrifice their freedom and look to the government to help them.
And what would a crisis like this be without a Democrat like New York governor Andrew Cuomo taking advantage. He called it “the European virus”.
Nikitas3.com believes that Cuomo said this because China is paying him to say it just like China is paying off tens of thousands of influential people all over the world to lie about the virus and shift the blame away from China.
Remember the facts: China has a $12 trillion annual economy. That money is all controlled by the Chinese communist party that controls China. The communists use this enormous wealth to pay influential people all over the world to say whatever the communists want them to say.
Nikitas3.com believes that Cuomo is evil and corrupt and is being paid off, just as the Democrat party has become evil and corrupt. We know that Democrat US senator Dianne Feinstein of California has had long-term economic ties to China through her husband as have many Democrats in the US, who also just happen to love communism. We know that Joe Biden’s son has been involved in a financial scam involving China.
In other words, Democrats are siding with the country that gave us this virus rather than with America. This is frightening and disgusting.
Update: Cuomo is desperate to get in the good graces of the leftist media after he forced nursing homes to accept elderly coronavirus patients, spreading the disease and killing thousands of New Yorkers in nursing homes in what is easily the biggest scandal of the crisis so far. This story alone would doom any aspirations that Cuomo has to be president.
So filthy China screwed us all with the virus and now is screwing us all by directing the blame away from itself and its communist party. Nikitas3.com believes that all Chinese nationals should be expelled from the US immediately since all Chinese in the US are communist party members who get the favor of traveling abroad. Good riddance to every one of them.
Update from Breitbart News:
CNN host Van Jones and the rapper known as will.i.am are teaming up with China’s (telcom giant corporation) Huawei to lead a virtual panel discussion about the rise of disinformation during the coronavirus pandemic.
That’s right. A Chinese tech giant is sponsoring a coronavirus disinformation panel. And it will be headlined by a CNN anchor.
Huawei announced Monday that the free webinar will take place Wednesday at 2 p.m. E.T., and will focus on how disinformation about the coronavirus disproportionately affects communities of color and low-income neighborhoods.
Jones is a known communist. Nikitas3.com wonders how much China is paying CNN and Van Jones…
Meanwhile in San Antonio, Texas mayor Ron Nirenberg says the city must take a stand against coronavirus “hate speech”. He wrote in a letter:
“This coronavirus has held no regard for race, religion, creed, or political boundary. As such, our efforts must meet the indiscriminate nature of COVID-19 with empathy and compassion for all our neighbors. I ask that you consider adopting the attached resolution – which declares that our COVID-19 response efforts will be free of hate and discrimination – at the next Council A-Session.”
The letter added that terms like ‘Chinese virus’ and ‘Kung Flu virus’ encourage hate crimes and incidents against Asians. He even wrote that that the Jewish community has been targeted with conspiracy theories.
This is sick. Again we have a politician seeking to shift the blame from China and to use this virus crisis to trash the Constitution and destroy our liberties.
Another Potential Solar Energy Disaster
Breitbart News reported:
The United Kingdom is considering a proposal to build the world’s largest solar power farm in the Kent countryside, yet local campaigners have warned that the project poses risks to the surrounding areas, claiming that if a fire should occur at the site the result could be an equivalent to a “small nuclear bomb”.
The proposed Cleve Hill Solar Park near Faversham, England would house one million solar panels taking up an estimated 900 acres of land. The battery facility alone would cover 25 acres and would contain lithium batteries that campaigners fear would be vulnerable to fire, and could explode, devastating the surrounding area as well as releasing toxic chemicals into the air.
An online petition against the proposed solar farm has attracted nearly 4,000 signatures from concerned residents, and said: “These batteries, which are untested at this scale, are prone to runaway fires leading to massive explosions and the emission of toxic hydrogen fluoride gas that can kill or maim over a large area.”
“An explosion would have the energy of a small nuclear bomb. Lithium-ion batteries have a history of spontaneous fires that cannot be put out with water and can throw flames 70ft high,” the group added.
The vice president of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) in Kent, Richard Knox-Johnston told The Sunday Telegraph that: “The size of this storage is five times the current largest similar battery storage in the world and poses unacceptable risks. It is equivalent to 602 tons of TNT, which is 1/20th of the TNT equivalent of the Hiroshima atom bomb,” he added.
This is another example of the disaster of ‘green’ energy which is worse for the environment than coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear power, which are all reliable energy sources.
This 900 acre solar collector installation is 1.5 square miles. This is another disaster for the environment. This project would be great if solar panels actually worked, but they are grossly inefficient and produce only tiny amounts of electricity for the large amount of land that they consume. The batteries also require large amounts of rare minerals like lithium, for which the mining is very detrimental to the environment.
At the same time The Los Angeles Times reported about the Tesla electric car:
Federal safety regulators have begun looking into Tesla battery fires. The probe covers all Model S and Model X vehicles manufactured between 2012 and 2019 and sold in the United States.
The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration is casting a wide net in its action, which NHTSA does not technically classify as an “investigation” but rather as a “defect petition.“ In a letter sent to Tesla’s legal department dated Oct. 24, the agency demands that Tesla produce all documents that relate to “high-voltage battery fires that are not related to collision or impact damage to the battery pack” in the Model S and Model X.
That includes documents from “all original written, printed, typed, recorded or graphic matter whatsoever … of every kind, nature and description.” Included are papers, letters, memos, emails, charts, tables, appointment books, diaries, travel reports, blueprints and well over 100 other sources of information.
The demand includes not only Tesla but also contractors, consultants and agencies involved with Model S and X battery issues.
The media has reported several incidents where Tesla batteries appeared to spontaneously burst into flames — sometimes while driving, other times while the car was parked. If Tesla knows of other such fires that the media has not picked up on, NHTSA wants to know about them.
Electric cars are another ‘green’ hoax. Nikitas3.com calculates that electric cars use 2 to 10 times as much energy as a gasoline-powered car per mile traveled since electricity is a highly “refined” resource and it is a law of physics that ‘it consumes energy to refine energy’.
And since an electric car battery can lose half of its energy in frigid weather, this means that cold places like Norway or Minnesota USA would be at a massive economic disadvantage if we converted to electric cars and trucks.
More Global Warming Nonsense
Popular Science magazine reported:
“Experts say that climate change will likely compound the problem. Soaring temperatures will either compel people wanting relief to go outside, where they could get infected, or the pandemic will force people to stay indoors, where they could swelter. Both the pandemic and extreme heat pose a mortal risk to the elderly and the infirm.”
Gee, Popular Science should have come to New England on May 9 for the mid-winter cold, howling winds and snow. Today May 12 is cloudy and cold. Spring 2019 did not even exist. It was cold up until the end of June.
