Axios is reporting:
"Some of the states that skeptics were most worried about, including Florida and Georgia, haven’t seen the rise in total cases that some experts feared. Florida’s new cases have actually declined by 14% compared to the previous week, and Georgia’s fell by 12%."
"Some experts" have been predicting piles of corpses in Florida for weeks. Our governor didn't lock down soon enough, they said.
These experts also predicted piles of corpses in Japan. Just wait two weeks, they said, and Japan will get what's coming to it. You'll see!
Then it was, "Oh, the Japanese wear masks and wash their hands," etc. Nice try, Bozo. You knew they did these things before you made the ghoulish predictions.
What's so hard about admitting: we're not entirely sure what's going on here?
And although the news about declining cases in Georgia and Florida is good, "cases" are not primarily what should concern us. The more we test, the more "cases" we find. The point is, most "cases" wind up amounting to precisely nothing.
There were over 800 "cases" at that South Dakota meat packing plant, and so far over 800 recoveries.
In March we got lurid reports of a doubling of "cases" in Hong Kong. We'd better wait two weeks! Piles of corpses!
Eight weeks later, zero additional deaths.
Now I'll be honest with you: I am afraid to see how these good numbers are being received by the Doomers.
Some of them seemed to be practically licking their chops when describing the wave of deaths they were sure awaited jurisdictions that hadn't adopted their panoply of closures and restrictions. It was downright ghoulish.
We shall see.
There is one place you can be sure will cheer good news, and which will keep you sane during the most Orwellian episode in American history.
The Tom Woods Show Elite, of course.
