World War II buffs will recall the story where General Patton, about the launch a counter-offensive in the Battle of the Bulge, was called into Eisenhower’s office. With Ike was the Surgeon General of the Third Army, one Dr Truffa.
Truffa had convinced Eisenhower that if Patton conducted his attack, Patton would put American soldiers at risk of severe lead poisoning, which caused death in 5% of cases. To avoid this, Truffa advised that all soldiers must shelter in place in their foxholes for at least two months.
The doctor admitted the two-month figure was only a forecast based on a model. At the end of the two months, if tests revealed there were still Germans present, the lockdown would have to continue indefinitely.
Patton left SHAEF Headquarters without saying a word. Later that night, however, it seems Truffa was visited by a party comprised of unknown individuals, who threw Dr Truffa a blanket party. The next day Patton was reportedly not surprised to receive a call from Eisenhower reversing his earlier order, now allowing Patton to commence the attack.
The moral of the lesson is: never put doctors in charge of anything except in handing out aspirins and sawing off legs.
Speaking of armed conflict, we always hear that if women were in charge there would be no more wars: ‘Crossed the line’: Ban-happy Michigan governor blasted for ‘insane’ overreach in response to coronavirus outbreak (here are several examples). She banned buy car seats, traveling between homes, and gardening, among other things.
If women were in charge everywhere, there’d be no more wars, all right. There’d be nothing else, either. Someone might get hurt.
Speaking of that dictatorial governor of Michigan: “Michigan Gov. #GretchenWhitmar Says She’s Not Concerned Over an Extremely Popular Petition Demanding Her Recall. ‘They can’t leave Their Houses, Who’s Going to Deliver It?” She Laughed.”
The BB speculates Governor Whitmar banned gardening equipment so that people cannot purchase pitchforks before the Operation Gridlock rally in Lansing.
Some men are turning themselves into women to hasten the trend of all-female leaders. I don’t mean by turning trans. I mean mentally. Cartoonist Scott Adams has embraced his inner little girl and now shouts that people who aren’t cowering in the dark are “sociopaths.” This should remind you of Nassim Taleb, a fellow cry bully, who called normal men “psychopaths“.
Crises always tell us a lot about people, about who they really are.
Governments all over the USA, and indeed the world over, are unhappy with their citizens. Frankly, these most beneficent people are growing sick of the antics of citizens, and they’re not going to take it anymore. One story among many:
Kentucky will record license plates of those who show up to any mass gatherings, such as church services, and will provide that info to local health departments, who will in turn order those individuals to be quarantined for 14 days, Gov. Andy Beshear says
Citizens should shut up, bend over, and take it. They should accept their lockdowns obediently and with good graces. They should ask no questions. It is for their own good.
If the enforced mandatory lockdowns have to last 18 full months until a vaccine arrives, then dammit, they have to last 18 months. Going outside into the fresh germicidal air any earlier than 18 months could cause somebody to get sick and die. A stroll is no different than murder!
Eighteen months? “UK will have to live with some restrictions until coronavirus vaccine is developed, say officials,” and “Normal life will stay on hold until a virus vaccine becomes available in about 18 months, officials have said.” Another expert says four years!
We are being governed by the same people who insist euthanasia is a right, but that you have no right to catch a cold.
Not everybody is unhappy with our semi-worldwide house arrest. A scientific Naomi Oreskes scientifically tweeted this science opinion “Sobering thought: It’s possible Coronavirus could save lines by decreasing pollution”.
How does a virus save lives? By killing people. You cannot argue against such ironclad scientific reasoning.
In Dorval, a privately run seniors’ residence dealing with the current coronavirus outbreak has been compared with a “concentration camp” by health professionals. Reports of underfed and soiled residence were shared by the Montreal Gazette who investigated the facility…
“There were (two) patients who were dead in their beds,” the source added. “Their deaths had not been recognized. There were patients who had fallen on the floor. There were patients who hadn’t had any basic care for a number of days, diapers that hadn’t been changed for three or four days, excrement that was covering their skin and patients who hadn’t been fed.”
Old people are icky and might be infected by coronavirus.
GRAPHIC: Police smashed a residents door in looking for 'social gatherings'. The police are out of control. These Police should be prosecuted for criminal damage and abuse of power. Got given a right serve. #CoronaPolice #CoronaCops pic.twitter.com/ReF17tUrZy

Apparently, the man did not answer the police’s request to search his house for illicit closeness. So they broke the door open. After all, illicit closeness could be deadly. You could be a carrier and kill somebody!
This is from Oxleas Woods this morning. Sunbathing is NOT essential and any person seen sunbathing will be moved on by enforcement officers or fined by the police.
