Medical fact

Jay Bhattacharya was considered one of a handful of medical consultants prepared to talk out in opposition to the shortage of scientific assist for draconian and damaging measures compelled on the nation in the course of the pandemic and for years after the disaster handed (“Nation Still Needs Full COVID Truth,” Martin Kulldorff & Jay Bhattacharya, PostOpinion, Feb. 22).

Those in these fields who swallowed their questions and stood by in masked silence can now stay with the outcomes of their decisions.

Medicine has at all times been an inexact science, open to questions, research and analysis, however that was not the case in the course of the pandemic. The scariest end result will not be the whole lack of belief we now have within the medical subject, however the understanding of the breadth and scope of the collusion between these in drugs and Big Pharma, Big Tech, media and our authorities to power their will upon this “free” nation, irrespective of the associated fee to its residents.

Despicable and horrifying. May they reap what they’ve sown.

Wage increase execs

The Post editorial “Albany’s Demented Bidding War” (Feb. 22) goes by way of all types of contortions to keep away from addressing the advantages of elevating and indexing the minimal wage.

It not solely permits staff to maintain up with inflation, thus sustaining buying energy, however supplies companies relative price certainty and the chance to plan effectively upfront for year-to-year affordable will increase.

Most minimum-wage earners are adults, and greater than 1 / 4 of them have households. As such, their earnings normally go proper again into the native financial system, particularly neighborhood small companies, to buy on a regular basis requirements.

Eighteen different states have figured it out and routinely regulate or index the minimal wage every year. It’s time New York breaks the cycle of rare will increase that result in inadequate wages and a diminished way of life for these on the backside of the pay scale.

Stab over shrimp

A father grieves, as considered one of his sons is dead and the opposite lies in a hospital mattress (“Fish mart shrimp ‘snatcher’ killed,” Feb. 23).

And a fishmonger with no prior legal file faces a homicide rap.The inconsolable father cries, “My sons have been good children, they ain’t get in no hassle. They not no arduous criminals” and “I can’t consider my boy was killed over some shrimp.”

Who’s in charge? Could or not it’s a permissive liberal society that withholds institutional self-discipline for minority children out of a priority for social justice? Or state and metropolis governments that, out of a priority for restorative justice, foster legal environments in cities like New York?

What will it take to finish the self-inflicted wounds these tragedies replicate? A return to the Ten Commandments and private accountability?

Weak sign

I disagree with Dalibor Rohac’s “Vlad’s Last Hope” (PostOpinion, Feb. 22.

It’s the West’s wimping out that acquired us into the conflict in Ukraine within the first place.

Lest we overlook, it was President Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 US troops dead and signaled to the likes of Presidents Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping simply how weak this administration’s international coverage stance is.

Sen. Mitch McConnell has it fallacious, the “chilly, arduous, sensible American pursuits” at the moment lie on our soil and the “stark warning to different would-be aggressors just like the People’s Republic of China” was already missed in Afghanistan.
