Sweden Pays Price For Not Locking Down

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Lots of B.S. out there about how “Sweden did it right.”  Take a few minutes and watch the following video.

We have always maintained, from day one,  that to lock down or to stay open was a false choice.  Sweden is almost as close to a laboratory case as we are going to get, which illustrates that if consumers don’t feel safe from the virus, the economic results will be the same, or even worse,  as “keeping everything open” or locking things down.  False choice.

Will the barbershops and massage parlors on Peachtree Street in Atlanta still have customers when the new cases begin to tick up even though their open signs are out?

We have to get this right, folks.  Listen to the scientists and  F the politics. — GMM, April 21st

Then, again, we are not exactly living in a period of enlightenment.  If it’s not in the National Enquirer, it’s fake news, no?

Locking Down Is Super Regressive

We did have an epiphany however that locking down the economy is super regressive and disproportionately hurts the working class, who can’t work from home.  There has to be a better way.  Maybe next January.
