  1. Just a quick follow up. On Thanksgiving we had 19 people at the house age 6 mos to 78. No masks. No social distancing. Hugs and kisses all around and a fun time was had by all. We did make a list of people and followed up. No one got Covid. This Christmas we are having 28, it’s a big house. We will enjoy our families and our holiday. We will also make a list again. Bet you a buffalo head nickel no one gets Covid. Why do cases go up after lock downs? Why are cases skyrocketing in the places that are the most mask compliant? Why does the overall death rate from 2015 to now show no increased deaths for 2020? Anyway, Merry Christmas!

    • “Why does the overall death rate from 2015 to now show no increased deaths for 2020?”

      Oh, it does. You just have to check the statistics. But you won’t find them on YouTube academy!

    • Excess death/mortality is explained on youtube. “Although total US death counts are remarkably consistent from year to year, US deaths increased by 20% during March-July 2020. COVID-19 was a documented cause of only 67% of these excess deaths. ” [Woolf et al., Journal of the American Medical Association, 324, 1562 (2020)].
      Keep making your lists, and you will end up on their list.

    • New infections from today don’t show up as confirmed COVID cases for about two weeks. ( days go by before people start to feel sick at all, then even more days go by before they get tested and it takes several days to get results. )
      THATS why you might see some case counts continue to go up after a lockdown starts. The shut down occurs when lots of new infections are happening, and those take two weeks to show up. After the lockdown is in affect for a couple weeks, the cases counts head down instead of up.

      I’ll take that bet of yours. Your Christmas plans could end up killing that 78 year old. Why would you take the risk? No love for the family, eh? We’re quarantining before xmas, so we’ll be fine.

  5. Yale university is named after their benefactor Elihu Yale, a slave trader.

    • As America is named after an invader. And the U.S. capital after a slaveholder.

    • Americus Vespucius December 26, 2020

      The name America was coined by Martin Waldseemüller from Americus Vespucius, the Latinized version of the name of Amerigo Vespucci (1454–1512), the Italian explorer who mapped South America’s east coast and the Caribbean Sea in the early 16th century. Later, Vespucci’s published letters were the basis of Waldseemüller’s 1507 map, which is the first usage of America. The adjective American subsequently denoted the New World. Another possible origin of the name is with Richard Amerike, a wealthy Welsh man who may have funded John Cabot’s 1497 expedition to the new World. [33]

      16th-century European usage of American denoted the native inhabitants of the New World.[34] The earliest recorded use of this term in English is in Thomas Hacket’s 1568 translation of André Thévet’s book France Antarctique; Thévet himself had referred to the natives as Ameriques.[34] In the following century, the term was extended to European settlers and their descendants in the Americas. The earliest recorded use of “English-American” dates to 1648, in Thomas Gage’s The English-American his travail by sea and land: or, a new survey of the West India’s.[34]

      In English, American was used especially for people in the British America. Samuel Johnson, the leading English lexicographer, wrote in 1775, before the United States declared independence: “That the Americans are able to bear taxation is indubitable.”[34] The Declaration of Independence of July 1776 refers to “[the] unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America” adopted by the “Representatives of the United States of America” on July 4, 1776.[35] The official name of the country was reaffirmed on November 15, 1777, when the Second Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, the first of which says, “The Stile of this Confederacy shall be ‘The United States of America'”. The Articles further state:

      In Witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands in Congress. Done at Philadelphia in the State of Pennsylvania the ninth day of July in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy-Eight, and in the Third Year of the independence of America.
      Sam Haselby, a history professor in Lebanon and Egypt, claims it was British officials who first called the colonists “Americans”. When the drafters of the Declaration—Thomas Jefferson from Virginia, for example, or John Adams from Massachusetts—talked about “my country”, they meant Virginia or Massachusetts, respectively. This situation was changed by the Revolution and the impulse toward nationalism.[36] Jefferson, newly elected president in May 1801 wrote, “I am sure the measures I mean to pursue are such as would in their nature be approved by every American who can emerge from preconceived prejudices; as for those who cannot, we must take care of them as of the sick in our hospitals. The medicine of time and fact may cure some of them.”[37]

      In The Federalist Papers (1787–88), Alexander Hamilton and James Madison used the adjective American with two different meanings: one political and one geographic; “the American republic” in Federalist No. 51 and in Federalist No. 70,[38][39] and, in Federalist No. 24, Hamilton used American to denote the lands beyond the U.S.’s political borders.[40]

      Early official U.S. documents show inconsistent usage; the 1778 Treaty of Alliance with France used “the United States of North America” in the first sentence, then “the said United States” afterwards; “the United States of America” and “the United States of North America” derive from “the United Colonies of America” and “the United Colonies of North America”. The Treaty of Peace and Amity of September 5, 1795, between the United States and the Barbary States contains the usages “the United States of North America”, “citizens of the United States”, and “American Citizens”.[41][improper synthesis?]
      U.S. President George Washington, in his 1796 Farewell Address, declaimed that “The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation.”[42] Political scientist Virginia L. Arbery notes that, in his Farewell Address:

      “…Washington invites his fellow citizens to view themselves now as Americans who, out of their love for the truth of liberty, have replaced their maiden names (Virginians, South Carolinians, New Yorkers, etc.) with that of “American”. Get rid of, he urges, “any appellation derived from local discriminations.” By defining himself as an American rather than as a Virginian, Washington set the national standard for all citizens. “Over and over, Washington said that America must be something set apart. As he put it to Patrick Henry, ‘In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others.'”[43]

      As the historian Garry Wills has noted: “This was a theme dear to Washington. He wrote to Timothy Pickering that the nation ‘must never forget that we are Americans; the remembrance of which will convince us we ought not to be French or English’.”[44] Washington’s countrymen subsequently embraced his exhortation with notable enthusiasm.

      This semantic divergence among North American anglophones, however, remained largely unknown in the Spanish-American colonies. In 1801, the document titled Letter to American Spaniards—published in French (1799), in Spanish (1801), and in English (1808)—might have influenced Venezuela’s Act of Independence and its 1811 constitution.[45]

      The Latter-day Saints’ Articles of Faith refer to the American continents as where they are to build Zion.[46]

      Common short forms and abbreviations are the United States, the U.S., the U.S.A., and America; colloquial versions include the U.S. of A. and the States. The term Columbia (from the Columbus surname) was a popular name for the U.S. and for the entire geographic Americas; its usage is present today in the District of Columbia’s name. Moreover, the womanly personification of Columbia appears in some official documents, including editions of the U.S. dollar.
