NJ Gov. Phil Murphy passes the buck on decision to stick sick people in nursing homes
Phil Murphy, the governor of New Jersey, went on interview on Sunday and stated basically that “it’s tragic” but that the state government is not to blame for people getting sick and dying from COVID.

“So it was not enough just to separate the residents, but to separate the staff. Did some operators not take our advice? It’s possible, and if they did, if they did not, they deserve to pay a price for that.”

As of this writing, we have not been able to directly verify the governor’s statements that they were insisting on separating staff as well as patients in nursing homes due to the pandemic.

Hope someone can confirm or deny this.  I sure don’t remember it.  I do remember them attacking the observant Jewish nursing home owner who’s rabbi counseled him not to let the sick back into his nursing home.

If the governor’s statement can not be confirmed, then he’s almost as bad as Cuomo.


POLITICAL: Skepticism – Why critical thinking makes you smarter

It’s not always easy to tell the difference between objective truth and what we believe to be true. Separating facts from opinions, according to skeptic Michael Shermer, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, and others, requires research, self-reflection, and time.

  • Recognizing your own biases and those of others, avoiding echo chambers, actively seeking out opposing voices, and asking smart, testable questions are a few of the ways that skepticism can be a useful tool for learning and growth.

This is why I like “good” Conspiracy Theories.  One can ask smart, testable questions that will uncover the objective truth!

Cui bono.

That’s my personal favorite.

The recent Cuomo twin pr disaster of sex and nursing home deaths points to the value of this question.  Cuomo, who I believe was regarded as 2024 Presidential material, was eliminated by these “revelations”.  Who benefitted?  Number on on the list has to be VP Kamla Harris.

Prove me wrong?
