Barking Up The Wrong Tree

Jim Jordan came across as an angry, ranting lunatic in his questioning of Anthony Fauci the other day. He kept harping on Fauci’s “un-American” insistence on restrictions.

Give it a rest, Jim. From all appearances, your intent is to paint a leading physician who’s trying to minimize loss of life as the bad guy. Why would you want to do that? Why keep harping on this non-existent problem? Who are you pandering to?

There is no balance to be kept here. It’s not freedom at all costs. The usual considerations give way to new ones when a pandemic shows up on your doorstep. As Dr. Fauci keeps reiterating, this is a public health issue- not a civil liberties issue.
