It's a very powerful strike, but even so, shattering a car window with it is no mean feat.
    And then we have a scene transition to the perspective of the other side of the civil war:

    I cannot understand why there is such resistance to verying votes unless there is fraud

    Right, that'd actually be one of the reasons I'm fine with the military doing it, because it's possible for them to regulate the process. Not so much with ballots mailed out into the wild, as we've seen demonstrated so painfully here.

    It probably needs to be done

    Something most of us have noticed compiled into a nice collection of graphs:
    WTF Happened In 1971?

    To be accurate, I believe it should be interpreted as: WTF happened in 1964-1968, manifesting itself fully in policy, law and effect by 1971. The second inflection point we can see is the period from about 1913 to 1918 (however, this inflection point is obscured by data aberrations caused by WWI, less accurate data collection methods and scale).
    We have now reached the third inflection point.

    • Total deaths in the US, Jan-Sep 2020 versus the same period, previous year
    • Split by age group
    • Split by type of death
    • Increase in [and causes of] non-COVID related deaths and whether or not that number is equal to, less than, or greater than total COVID deaths
    • The above stats calculated in terms of "life years lost" (I wonder how many life years have been lost due to things like suicide among young people, which represent 40+ life years lost per person, as compared to life years lost due to COVID deaths from the elderly)

    It'd be hard to get accurate ranges, but it'd be worth attempting to calculate:
    • Total economic cost
    • Cost per incremental death (over last year's baseline)
    • Cost per incremental life year lost (over last year's baseline)
    • A simulation, based on actuals from other countries, to imagine what these stats may have been if there were no lockdowns, social distancing, mask mandates, etc in the US

    It would also be interesting to know:
    • Total and percentage of deaths caused by government intervention (especially early moves that placed COVID patients in end of life care facilities, for example)
    • Psychological impact on the country as measured by Rx drug use, illegal drug use, alcohol/cannabis use increases, and a sentiment analysis (hopelessness/optimism, feeling of being in control of one's own destiny, etc)
    • Total dollars spent by businesses and government on policy implementation (including social distancing, signage, PPE, human resources, equipment, etc)
    • Number and percentage of small businesses that filed for bankruptcy, year over year
    • Average economic injury to government employee vs public company employee vs private company employee vs small business owner
    • Crime stats comparison, year over year
    • Trust in media and government stats, year over year

    It is impossible to quantify the true costs of these policy decisions, since they have permanently altered the course of history. A functioning media would be useful in a situation like this.

    Paul Weston: "...here is an interesting fact I discovered the other day. The total number of deaths from or with COVID-19 in England amongst those aged under 60 and without one or more existing life threatening illnesses, is pretty much zero..."

    An interesting quote from Dr. Susan Hopkins, Public Health England's incident director: "Although it may seem straightforward, there is no WHO agreed method of counting deaths from COVID-19. In England, we count all those that have died who had a positive COVID-19 test at any point, to ensure our data are as complete as possible."

    Read that about 4 times and then watch this video. Prepare to cry or puke, maybe both.

    The level of incompetence is a material evil. She is ensuring the exact opposite, that the data is as incomplete as possible by completely drowning covid as root cause in a massive amount of noise.

    Keep having to rub my eyes and pinch myself.
