Dr. Phil Says Economic Consequences From Lockdown Could Kill More Than COVID-19

Published

on

Dr. Phil McGraw, popular psychologist guru and television host, took an opportunity to warn folks that the economic consequences from the lockdowns across the country could end up leading to more death than the coronavirus they were meant to stop.

As governors of states across the country have closed what they dub “non-essential” businesses, millions of folks are finding themselves out of work and unable to provide for their families. On top of that, many are actually having to shut down their companies completely, as in never opening the doors again.

This, McGraw and others have warned, will spike depression and anxiety and could potentially lead to a serious uptick in suicides.

While appearing on Fox News with Laura Ingraham, the self-help television host argued that prolonged social distancing measures designed to curb the spread of the coronavirus could themselves be deadly.

“I can’t show you an X-ray of depression. I can’t show you an X-ray of anxiety. But the fact of the matter is the longer this lockdown goes on, the more vulnerable people get, and it’s like there’s a tipping point. There’s a point at which people start having enough problems in lockdown that it will actually create more destruction and actually more death across time than the actual virus will itself,” he said.

McGraw has a doctorate in psychology, but as of now is not a licensed psychologist, made a comparison of the deaths from the virus to those caused by swimming pool accidents, car accidents, and smoking, noting that “we don’t shut the country down for that.”

He’s got a very valid point. There is an inconsistency in the response to the coronavirus compared to other serious illnesses and accidents that kills hundreds of thousands of individuals every year. This leads to one of two conclusions. Either the government is overreacting, or this thing is way worse than they are telling us.

“Two hundred and fifty people a year die from poverty. And the poverty line is getting such that more and more people are going to fall below that because the economy is crashing around us. And they’re doing that because people are dying from the coronavirus. I get that. But look, the fact of the matter is we have people dying. Forty-five thousand people a year die from automobile accidents, 480,000 from cigarettes, 360,000 a year from swimming pools, but we don’t shut the country down for that,” Dr. Phil went on to say.

The CDC has said that 480,000 people die from smoking in the United States, but other stats that McGraw shared are greatly inflated.

The National Safety Council estimates that around 38,800 people died from automobile accidents in 2019. Another report from the CDC says 3,500 people died from unintentional pool drownings between the years of 2005 to 2014.

“But yet, we are doing it for this, and the fallout is going to last for years because people’s lives are being destroyed,” he said.

There have been 2.1 million people confirmed to have coronavirus globally, with at least 147,000 deaths being associated with the illness in some capacity.

Here in the United States there have been 671,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 3,423,034 having been tested for the disease.

Bill O’Reilly Brilliantly Explains Why 2020 Election Doesn’t Make Much Sense (Video)

You probably won’t find a better summarization.

Bill O’Reilly may not be a perfect person. But that is to be expected, considering he’s human. That being said, the man is very intelligent and well-informed (and his Killing series is just plain awesome). On Monday, Bill explained why the 2020 presidential election seems so funky to so many millions of Americans. Did you know, as O’Reilly points out, that no president in 150 years has lost a second term when they nabbed more votes than they did the first time around? Trump earned over 10 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, but somehow he’s the one who can’t keep up with the trend – despite the massive rallies, both scheduled and impromptu, all over the nation??

There’s zero chance Joe Biden outperformed President Trump to the tune of 80 million total votes. Come on, man! The GOP needs to get to the bottom of this or risk going extinct.

GOP Senator Says Biden’s Pick for OMB, Neera Tanden, Has ‘Zero Chance of Being Confirmed’

Buh bye.

It is absolutely imperative that Republicans retain control of the Senate. Both upper chamber races in Georgia have the ability to make or break the country. Loeffler and Perdue must win. If they don’t, Democrats will have the House, Senate, and, possibly, the Executive Branch. If that happens, things will change fast – and not in a good way. From The Daily Wire: On Monday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced he had selected Neera Tanden, the president of The Center for American Progress and a close friend of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as his choice to head the White House Office of Management and Budget, eliciting criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Sen. John Cornyn, (R-TX) said Tanden “stands zero chance of being confirmed.” […] Tandem has also come under fire for her handling of sexual harassment claims at the Center for American Progress. Buzzfeed News reported in 2018 that two days after they had revealed allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation at the Center for American Progress, where Tanden served as president, Tanden “met with staff to restore confidence in the organization’s ability to handle the issue and ensure that employees feel safe. But during the meeting Wednesday afternoon, Tanden named the anonymous victim at the center that story — a revelation that a CAP spokesperson said was unintentional — and what began as a tense meeting became what three staffers in the room described as a textbook example of the organization’s failures to appropriately handle sexual harassment cases.” Check out some of these tweets… https://twitter.com/GarrettVentry/status/1333250823531470855?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1333250823531470855%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/802605607081615360?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E802605607081615360%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/959471674528878593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E959471674528878593%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration
