Where Have All The Workers Gone--Mystery Solved?
Just last week we did a post on this Big Mystery: Where have all the workers gone? Amazing. One week ago it was a big freakin’ mystery, and now—thanks to the wonder of the internet—eh, not so much.
The answer is simple and all too final: They’re dead. Further question: Why?
The background, quoted in that earlier post:
Where did all the workers go? That is a great mystery that continues to be unsolved. All over America, businesses are literally hiring anyone with a pulse and there are “help wanted” signs all over the place. But the number of people that are actually working is still close to four million below the pre-pandemic peak. What happened to all of those extra workers? They certainly aren’t on unemployment, because claims for unemployment benefits are the lowest that we have seen “in decades”. So where are they? It is almost as if millions upon millions of people have disappeared from the system completely over the past couple of years.
This is one of those cases that illustrates the wisdom of what smart people have been saying: Look to the mortality numbers, especially excess mortality. Those are probably the only stats that the government can’t fudge. So check out this article:
“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business," OneAmerica CEO Scott Davison says.
Now, this isn’t just a one-liner that Davison—who, I assume, is a basically smart guy—tosses off, then moves on. He dwells on it, puzzling over it. It’s, like, a mystery. And Davison wants you to realize that this is a big deal.
Spoiler alert: Nowhere in the article will you find the word “vaccine” or any variations on that word. Nor “injection”. Nor “mRNA.” Nor “VAERS”.
On to the details!
The head of OneAmerica insurance said the death rate is up a stunning 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people.
“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica,” the company’s CEO Scott Davison said during an online news conference this week. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”
Davison said the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and that’s it’s not elderly people who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64” who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica.
There ya are. “Huge, huge numbers” of newly dead people—primarily working age people. Go figure, right?
“And what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said.
Wait a minute—what’s this babble about death rates being up over “pre-pandemic” levels? The “pandemic” started nearly two years ago, in January of 2020. What he actually seems to be saying is that the big increase started in the third quarter of 2021 and is continuing into the fourth quarter of 2021. That suggests that the big increase is also up majorly over first and second quarter levels of 2021. And since this increase isn’t due to Covid, shouldn’t we be asking, What happened just before the big increase? I think we know the answer—experimental injections for over half the population. Could that be the explanation? It certainly seems worth exploring, doesn’t it?
“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.”
Let that sink in. A 10% increase in deaths would be “a one-in-200-year catastrophe”, but this is 40%.
Most of the claims for deaths being filed are not classified as COVID-19 deaths, Davison said.
“What the data is showing to us is that the deaths that are being reported as COVID deaths greatly understate the actual death losses among working-age people from the pandemic. It may not all be COVID on their death certificate, but deaths are up just huge, huge numbers.”
He said at the same time, the company is seeing an “uptick” in disability claims, saying at first it was short-term disability claims, and now the increase is in long-term disability claims.
Unprecedented increase in deaths, “uptick” in long term disability? Related? Does VAERS offer a clue?
What are all these people dying from, if it isn’t Covid? Don’t hold your breath waiting for the answer, but I’m gonna suggest—just because of anecdotal reports—strokes and heart attacks. The cancers and so forth will doubtless come later.
At the same news conference where Davison spoke, Brian Tabor, the president of the Indiana Hospital Association, said that hospitals across the state are being flooded with patients “with many different conditions,” saying “unfortunately, the average Hoosiers’ health has declined during the pandemic.”
In a follow-up call, he said he did not have a breakdown showing why so many people in the state are being hospitalized – for what conditions or ailments. But he said the extraordinarily high death rate quoted by Davison matched what hospitals in the state are seeing.
Wait a minute. The president of the Indiana Hospital Association doesn’t know what health conditions are causing the hospitals in his state association to be “flooded”? What’s this guy good for? Does he just sit in his office muttering: It’s a mystery!
The number of hospitalizations in the state is now higher than before the COVID-19 vaccine was introduced a year ago, and in fact is higher than it’s been in the past five years, Dr. Lindsay Weaver, Indiana’s chief medical officer, said at a news conference with Gov. Eric Holcomb on Wednesday.
Ah, there it is again. That date. The date they started the injections. Must be coincidence.
Just 8.9% of ICU beds are available at hospitals in the state, a low for the year, and lower than at any time during the pandemic. But the majority of ICU beds are not taken up by COVID-19 patients – just 37% are, while 54% of the ICU beds are being occupied by people with other illnesses or conditions.
Interesting times. Another one of those imagine-if-this-happened-under-Trump conundrums.
