TheDailyBeast.com: The still-raging coronavirus pandemic helped to wipe 1.8 years off U.S. life expectancy last year, according to new figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Life expectancy fell to 77 years in 2020, the figures show, in the most dramatic one-year drop in life expectancy since at least World War II.

Elizabeth Arias, a demographer at the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, said she had to recheck her calculations several times because the drop was so much bigger she had anticipated.

“I knew there was going to be a decline, but I didn’t expect it to be this large,” Arias said, according to The Wall Street Journal. “For some groups, life expectancy declined three years or more.” COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death last year, behind heart disease and cancer. The figures also show the highest ever number of drug-overdose deaths.

  1. I have a pic I always post, with my point that:

    Pandemic mandates #MadeAmericaGreat.

    Failure to comply could get you jailed & shot #WhenAmericaWasGreat. (#MAGA!)

    It’s a pic of a 1918 newspaper headline about a health official (NOT even a cop) who shot a guy multiple times for not wearing a mask. The police backed him up & jailed the guy.
    Collaged with another pic of masked people with signs saying “Wear A Mask Or Go To Jail.”

    👆Nobody ever challenged me on this! 🤔…
    Till yesterday. Some troll says the story’s outta San Francisco: somewhere he wouldn’t be caught dead, now OR then.
    So, I…

    • … did a 2 minute image search, and found newspaper headlines from all over USA, showing cities & States with pandemic mandates.

      I told the troll he shouldn’t “be caught dead” in USA, then!

      He STFU.

  2. Mitch McConnell, Sheldon Adelson’s Lapdog (I’m not exaggerating
    check out how much money Mitch received from Sheldon since Citizens United!)
    McConnell recently said the GOP will take back the House in 2022,
    but where will they find the votes?
    John Hagee is 83 years old, the average age of a Republican Voter is 78 years old.
    The Zionist unvaxxed Trumpsters are literally dropping like flies.
    The AIPAC, ADL are disdained by US Citizens under 60 because of the growing hatred of War Mongering Israel.
    Young Americans hate Apartheid Israel because of Hasbara Cyber Terrorists spying on US Citizens using Israeli NSO Spyware.
    Veterans hate Apartheid Israel because of the mandatory
    “Loyalty Oaths to Israel”.
    Americans are starting to realize a vote for anyone bribed by
    AIPAC is a vote for Apartheid Israel !

    • So who’s your next world-dominating bogeyman gonna be?

      I mean, saying “Zionists are disdained by US Citizens under 60” would mean their days are numbered (and kills that BS quote forged to Voltaire, oft applied to Zio’s “Who you can’t criticize rules you”).

      No, I doubt even ⅕ “US Citizens” under 60 would even know what a Zio is, if asked. (Try it!)
      If anything, their days are numbered because of 2021 headlines like this: (highlighting my constant point here about demographics there.)
      “Netanyahu Courts Palestinian Vote.”

    • Moreover, ⅕ is orders of magnitude higher than “US Citizens” who even know about their own country! As recently proven by “Liberal” Bill Maher:

      Whoopi Goldberg: “ReEducate.”

      Bill Maher: “Mao! Communism! Camps!😱!”

      WHILE we find mass child graves* from the ReEducation Camps in USA: where it literally wasn’t illegal to kidnap N̶a̶t̶i̶v̶e̶ American children until 1978!

      (See sanitized NBC News headline:
      “Indian Boarding School Investigation Faces Hurdles In Missing Records, Legal Questions.”)

  3. Total deaths in US 2020,…. 3,358,814.
    Total deaths in US 2019,…2,854,838
    Difference, { 503,976 }………..
    There were many comparisons put out there that used early numbers as they tried to diminish the percentage increase. A wild variety of numbers can be found, even within the CDC documents depending on when they were published. If I use the full number from 2019, and the early reported number of 2020,…then there is a huge disparity.
