Some rebuttal to Bill Cate's Letter to the Editor: 1.) Over 120 countries have shut their borders to Americans because we are #1 in Covid-19 cases, Covid-19 deaths, and have a president that has tragically bungled, ignored, politicized, and refused to take responsibility for a national pandemic, the consequence of which the virus was allowed to spread throughout every state in the Union, with no controlled national plan to slow it down. 2.) Gov Whitmer did not put in place safety protocols to deliberately harm small businesses - on the contrary, she made those calls, based on expert science, medical, and business advice, to slow the spread and save lives from a highly contagious, deadly new virus with no cure or vaccine. 3.) Huizenga did indeed drop in on a Grand Rapids postal center, but somehow managed to overlook the pile of dismantled mail-sorting machinery, a photo of which was shown on the WOODTV8 website. 4.) It's a hoot you lump Kenosha, a town of 100,000 (the City of Grand Rapids has a pop. of 200,000), in with some of the largest urban centers in the world! But I guess as long as it's run by a Democrat, that's comparison enough for you. Let's not forget that those cities you so disparage send billions to the federal government in taxes that are then largely sent to Republican states and cities that seem to have the most need for government assistance. 5.) Your quote that "only 6% of deaths were caused by just the virus" is misleading, and as you might say, a "half-truth". What the CDC actually said...."The CDC said 6 percent died of COVID-19 alone, 94 percent died of the coronavirus and contributing conditions, some of which may have been caused by the virus." Let's get the facts......https://www.wbir.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/cdc-statistic-on-covid-19-deaths-does-not-mean-only-6-percent-died-of-the-virus/51-fa6bcf24-5f2a-44fb-9b2d-5bc9e499242a

You have lost you mind.

Bill, Your last paragraph hit the nail on the head. The guy is a political pundit for the extreme left. He has nothing original to offer.

Lanivan

Thank you for sharing yet another one of your original, yet repetitious, offerings!

Sadly Mr. Cate, All Mark Smiths letters are biased garbage. He is a classic narcisscist. We have not heard the last from him.

Gee, for a minute there I thought you were referring to Trump's dozens of tweets he makes every day!

Nope but you are back with your same old tired bitter trope.
