Well, no hysteria over Corona; aka the WuFlu – which has laid low most of the country except for a few places like South Dakota. Where there was no “lockdown” – a term formerly reserved for prisons – and in which Corona (as elsewhere) hasn’t killed 99.5-plus percent of the population.
But South Dakota’s governor, Kristi Noem, hasn’t killed the lives of 99.5 percent of her state’s population by imposing Face Diapering and other kabuki to make it appear as though 99.5 percent of the population will die unless they Diaper – and otherwise live in perpetual terror of a virus that poses less threat to 99.5 percent of the population than medical malpractice.
She has also refused the Corona Kool Aid – federal money to pay the populace to not work and to kill their businesses by operating at half capacity and imposing Face Diapering and Anti-Social Distancing on patrons.
“My administration is very grateful for the additional flexibility that this effort would have provided, but South Dakota is in the fortunate position of not needing to accept it,” Noem diplomatically said.
But she knows perfectly well that Corona Cash isn’t free – that Diaper strings are attached and that if she took the money, they take control.
“South Dakota’s economy, having never been shut down, has recovered nearly 80 percent of our job losses,” she added. “We’re the only state in the nation that didn’t have extended unemployment benefits kick in because our insured unemployment rate has been the lowest in the nation.”
Bravo to this brave women – who is the antidote to Corona Karens – and Kevins. She has more guts and other such than many technically men have.
We need more like her.
