4. Math was never my strong suit... I taught history.

But those numbers might make mathematical sense, but...

This country has turned itself inside out about 3,000 deaths on 9/11. What would the numbers be on that one? Nobody screamed on the radio about how the loss of a "mere" 3,000 people was not great enough to cause policy changes.

And we didn't have people pointing out that roughly 3 million Americans served in Vietnam and that "only" 56,000 died there.

And our casualties in combat during WWII were a minuscule percent of the population of the country, too. 140 million Americans... and we "only" lost 291,000.

Covid has killed TWICE what we lost in WWII... and in less than 2 years...and assholes like Bondino can still pump their bullshit out on the public airwaves.

It ain't right!
