Sam Cogley: Describe a phase one search.
Captain Kirk: It’s a painstaking, thorough attempt in and around the ship to find a man who’s presumably injured and unable to respond.
Sam Cogley It presupposes, does it not, that a man wishes to be found?
Captain Kirk: I beg your pardon?
Sam Cogley: If you start a search for a man, you assume, don’t you, that he wants to be found? He’s not hiding?

The reaction to the decision by the Governor of Georgia to allow (stress allow not compel) business to open on the 24th rather than waiting an extra week has caused an extreme reaction all over the democrat/left/media.
The supposed reason is they are afraid of deaths from the Corona/Wuhan/CCP virus (although they aren’t apparently afraid of deaths from surgeries that don’t happen, or other side effects of an economy crashing and burning) but I submit and suggest this is not the case, because people are making an assumption that I don’t think is true.
The assumption people are making is that the people outraged by this move have the same goal as the Governor, the ability to safely re-open the economy without dying by the virus. I think this is not the case.
I don’t think they are afraid of people dying from the Corona/Wuhan/CCP virus, I think they’re afraid they won’t!
What happens if some business open and things work out? What happens if the supply chains are able to supply, people are allowed to shop, eat or function as normal and the economy roars?
Then Americans go back to work, then unemployment drops, then wealth returns to the middle class without government aid. While this would be a great help to the vast majority of the American people, who does it hurt?
The Democrats and the left, because if all these things come back then they are in the same spot that they were in two months ago, facing a president with a booming economy, foreign policy success and the lowest black and Hispanic unemployment in history in an election year:
“But DaTechGuy”, you ask, “didn’t President Trump himself say that he thought this was too early, why don’t you think he is cheering for dead bodies?”
Well it’s true that the President has suggested this move is too soon, but unlike the left he suffers no penalty if the move works, his warning actually puts him in a no-lose situation. If it fails he suggested it was a tad soon and can note this if it works not only does he get all the benefits of Georgia doing well but he can also get credit for giving the state the flexibility to give things a shot.
The left however only wins if Georgia fails, that’s what I think is going on, as I said earlier this month:
What we write, broadcast and report about Communist China, Russia, Iran and the Corona Virus,we do because we believe it helps to save the Union from Donald Trump; and what we forbear, we forbear because we do not believe it would help to save the Union from Donald Trump.
Trump threw them for a loop by not endorsing this move but I submit and suggest that this is not about saving citizens lives for the left, it is about saving the lives of Democrat campaigns.
After all do you really think people who are willing to knock off babies up to the moment of birth are concerned if older folks live or die?
