Equal Time: Reporter Says Covid Policies Killing Kids

 Which is worse for kids: The Covid-19 virus or the Covid-19 policies?  A CBS reported minced no words yesterday in saying the policies are literally killing our kids and ruining their lives.  

For me…my kids hear me rant about this every day, so I might as well tell you guys.

It’s the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children. By far, the least serious risk for serious illness, but — I mean even teenagers, you know, a healthy teenager has a one in a million chance of getting and dying from COVID, which is way lower than dying in a car wreck on a road trip.

But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids in underrepresented and at-risk communities. And now we have the surgeon general saying there’s a mental health crisis among our kids.

The risk of suicide attempts among girls now up 51 percent this year. Black kids nearly twice as likely as white kids to die by suicide.

School closures, lockdowns, cancelation of sports. You couldn’t even go on a playground in the D.C. area without cops scurrying, shooing the kids off.

Tremendous negative impact on kids, and it’s been an afterthought. It’s hurt their dreams, their future, learning loss, risk of abuse, their mental health.

And now, with our knowledge, our vaccines, if our policies don’t reflect a more measured and reasonable approach for our children, they will be paying for our generation’s decisions the rest of their lives.

And that, to me, is the greatest underreported story of the past year.

 Her statement should come as no surprise.  Propublica reported in March: 

The novel coronavirus, by contrast, has hit the elderly the hardest. The median age for COVID-19 fatalities in the U.S. is about 80. Of the nearly 500,000 deaths in the U.S. analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as of early March, 252 were among those 18 or younger — five hundredths of a percent of the total....

As many of these experts have noted, the cost of restrictions on youth has gone beyond academics. The CDC found that the proportion of visits to the emergency room by adolescents between ages 12 and 17 that were mental-health-related increased 31% during the span of March to October 2020, compared with the same months in 2019. A study in the March 2021 issue of Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, of people aged 11 to 21 visiting emergency rooms found “significantly higher” rates of “suicidal ideation” during the first half of 2020 (compared to 2019), as well as higher rates of suicide attempts, though the actual number of suicides remained flat.

 Doctors are concerned about possible increases in childhood obesity — no surprise with many kids housebound in stress-filled homes — while addiction experts are warning of the long-term effects of endless hours of screen time when both schoolwork and downtime stimulation are delivered digitally. (Perhaps the only indicator of youth distress that is falling — reports of child abuse and neglect, which dropped about 40% early in the pandemic — is nonetheless worrisome because experts suspect it is the reporting that is declining, not the frequency of the abuse.)

Coming to a full stop at a Jackson, Mississippi "red light" is much more dangerous.

Any national "news stories" about that reality ?

I'm glad she wasn't worried about the adults who teach the kids.

Delbert Hoseman said before March 2020 that Mississippi had 750 fewer teachers than 5 years ago.

Currently, there are 3600 open teacher positions (certified teachers) available. That's an increase of 500%, if my math teacher taught me correctly.

How did so many literary and scientific geniuses live and develop in the midst of total ignorance in the lack of the www, helicopter moms and coddling teachers during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance?

Interesting that she leads with "my kids hear me rant about this every day" without the least indication that her ranting has any effect on her kid's perceptions. It apparently never occurs to her that the way in which she presents the challenges shapes their reaction.

Jan Crawford has worked for CBS, ABC, and the Chicago Tribune all of which are left leaning organizations which leads me to believe she is left leaning since these organizations typically don't hire right leaning people. She said she has kids so we can take her comments at face value and truly reflective of her concern for the impact that the current Covid policies are having on her kids and children in general. It is refreshing to see someone speak the truth even when doing so can put one's career in jeopardy. I suspect that the people in charge at CBS may retaliate against her. I hope not but that would be par for the course in today's world.

Most of the world implemented lockdowns. Children all over the world are experiencing the same circumstances. It could be worse - what if your daughter grew up in a Muslim country that refuses to educate girls? Parental involvement in educating their children and working to keep their children mentally healthy is critical. This is a Karen reporter having a meltdown about her lousy parenting. How dare the government take away her babysitter?!

This woman most likely hated the previous administration, and helped to usher in the present one. Now, she's crying about how bad things are.

Typical example of mental illness at its worst, or serious emotional immaturity at the very best.

Leftism is a mental illness of delayed brain development affecting emotional regulation and rational judgment - that is manifested of childhood experiences that denied them any proper role models, discipline, or critical thinking ability. They live their lives by their "feelings", and want someone, anyone - to take care of them when it comes to the hard, grown up stuff - because it hurts too much to have to think.

CBS cut the piece from its viewers. They know the simpletons who watch their programs couldn't handle Covid facts. These are the same people who believe children actually die from Covid and are running around Jackson with their 5 year old double masked with a N95 and cloth masks.

Actually most of the world didn't shut down their schools as we did.

Epidemiologists recommended temporary school closures, masks in class, and vaccines for children. Have they been involved in a great conspiracy with the government? Who knows more, the doctors or this kook reporter? I cannot believe anyone is dumb enough to believe this garbage. Wait, yes I can. Just read the posts.

But left-wing eco-fascists like Tracy Stone-Manning point out that children are "environmental hazards". We should be elated that leaders like Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci have finally taken bold and decisive action to rid the earth of the great excess of "parasites" and "cancers" on this planet. Bill's father must be so proud of him.

Clearly this "reporter" knows nothing.

The reporter is pissed off that the village is not raising, educating and taking care of her children's mental health.

BTW, look at CNN's report today on the Jackson's murder rate.

Whoa...thanks 10:39am. Well done overview of the problems, but talk about white flight.....

Perhaps the worst thing that the kids have experienced from the Covid policies is the virtual learning. The kids that have had to "learn" this way may never catch up. A friend of mine is a teacher and I asked him why they call it virtual learning. He told me they call it virtual learning because the kids learn virtually nothing.

"As a general rule, the earlier you recognize someone is trying to kill you, the better off you’ll be." -- Robert Gore, April 23, 2020

The most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to RE-learn is that psychopaths typically are not physically violent crazies but always stealth predators (exploitative deceivers, which explains why the public has been fed a MISLEADING understanding of psychopaths).

And then... the most vital urgent and DEEP understanding everyone needs to gain is that a network of manipulating psychopaths ARE governing big businesses (eg official medicine), nations and the world (the evidence is irrefutable) and that, therefore, the Covid Scamdemic is a VERY DESTRUCTIVE WAR AGAINST NON-RULING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE --- you and I. But that's only ONE part of the equation that makes up the destructive human condition.

It is NOT just a matter of "draining the swamp" at the top and we're back to our former (sick) "normal."

The true, WHOLE, but "politically inconvenient" and “culturally forbidden” reality is more encompassing because "the swamp that needs draining" on a psychological and behavioral level is over 90% of people anywhere. Check out “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” at w w w d o t CovidTruthBeKnown d o t c o m

Without a proper understanding, and full acknowledgment, of the true WHOLE problem and reality, no real constructive LASTING change is possible for humanity.


If your employer (even educational or federal employers) wants you to take a Covid vaccine give him/her one of these form letters of exemption found at w w w d o t lc d o t o r g/exempt

One of the ways psychopaths show their hate for the public is by rubbing the public's stupidity in their own faces. Eg with the letters of "omicron" an alleged Covid variant you can spell "moronic"... And indeed most of the public NEVER recognizes their own stupidity as the believe, trust, and follow any explanation or demand of the psychopaths-in-power..

And further speaking of stupid herd people not getting the glaringly obvious truth/ie not getting the constant onslaught of BIG lies of the official authorities......

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
