Bill Whittle’s Rage: How to Keep Your Head When All About You Are Losing Theirs

Worth your time to listen to and share.

With panic sweeping the news media, social media, official Washington D.C., and the toilet paper aisle at the local grocery store, Bill Whittle deals with the taproot of fear. He explodes in righteous indignation against the craven acts of opportunistic politicians. Among Bill’s common sense concepts for escaping bad crisis advice:
– It’s not a financial issue, it’s a health care issue.
– Wait until we understand the financial impact before we make irreversible national policy with massive impact on our debt.
– Make any relief bill directly related to the pandemic and it’s economic impact, rather than passing catch-all legislation that would use the crisis to accomplish redistributive measures Democrats have failed to accomplish to date.
– Compensate industries for actual losses caused by government action, based on actual accounting. Don’t just hand out money.
– Vote out politicians who will do anything, anything, anything for power.

    Whittle is a pretty good guy from what little i know of him but I wish he had ok’d the shooting of the over the top assholes that are emerging in this crisis. A world wide recession creates an unfathomable target rich environment and dog gone it, it’s a waste to pass on these dead beats.

    I get along pretty well with my ladyfriend, but the biggest divide between us is her habit of turning on the News to “Find out whats going on”. Then she gets upset with me when after five or sometimes ten minutes I get angry listening to those talking heads spew their garbage.
    She voted for DJT, she considers herself conservative, but she watches “The View” and other afternoon programing. She could never sit through Bill Whittles video, or understand why he’s so angry. She doesn’t understand why I get so angry either.
    And I am.

    John, I hope the sex is worth the frustration.

    All very good points, but the problem is that the USA (and the UK) are in the very earliest stages of a period of exponential growth in a potentially lethal disease.

    There is another point hidden here. A guesstimate of the mortality rate of covid-19 is 2%. However, that assumes the availability of the full range of medical intervention, including life-support measures such as ventilators and the trained staff to run them. Sooner or later, the capacity of ICUs is going to run out – and then we might see death rates of 10% or more.

    There is also a potential for second-order effects. To illustrate this point, imagine that you or someone you care about has some major life-threatening event such as a stroke or heart attack. If you get to hospital in the first place, and intensive care is full…
