COVID Lockdowns Fail Again

This is a continuing demographics disaster for this country.

Many mediots assumed that months of lockdowns in 2020 would give us a spike in new babies this year. Well, no such luck. As it happens, the birth rate declined once again last year.

Even as the birth rate of our citizenry has fallen below replacement rates, some were happy when predictions for a baby boom were bandied about during the beginning phases of the various lockdowns that popped up all across the nation. But now we have found that the birth rate has fallen to a low not seen since 1979 as the birth numbers fell 4.4 percent over 2019.

Sadly, it is all just in keeping with the falling numbers we seen for decades.

“Birthrates fell among all ranges of women, in the childbearing 15 to 44 age group,” Townhall wrote. “Most concerning were birth rates among Millennial women (born between 1981 and 1996) who account for the majority of women making babies; birth rates for 30-somethings fell by between 2 and 4 percent, while those for 20-somethings decreased by between 4 and 6 percent.”

Townhall went on to note that those at prime baby-making age have been facing particularly difficult situations:

Why aren’t Millennials having babies? Experts suggest that Millennials are scarred. Starting careers during the Great Recession and saddled with student loan debt, this generation suffered significantly high unemployment rates and lost income. From 2007 through 2017, the average Millennial missed out on13 percent of total earnings ($25,000). Millennials had just begun to recover when the pandemic hit. Millions of them were driven out of work, especially since job losses hit the dining and leisure industries hardest, which tend to employ younger workers.

The numbers look bad, per CNBC:

Overall, the number of births declined 3% for Hispanic women and 4% for white and Black women from 2019 to 2020.

Teen birth rates dropped considerably with births to 15- to-17-year-olds falling by 6% and to 18- to-19-year-olds falling by 7%, both hitting record lows.

Birth rates among women ages 20 to 24 and 25 to 29 dipped by 6% and 4%, respectively, both to record lows. Birth rates fell by 4% and 2% respectively among women ages 30 to 34 and 35 to 39, but did not reach record lows, according to CDC data.

Birth rates for women ages 40 to 44 fell by 2% from 2019, but birth rates for women 45 and up remained unchanged. according to the CDC.

This is a continuing demographics disaster for this country.

But, once again we see that the lockdowns failed to do what “experts” said they would do.

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?

Published

For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
