Questions are funny things.  They can be good because they lead us to seek answers.  Of course, sometimes those answers are not what we wanted to find.

A few years ago I learned that the commissioners in the county where we lived were processing a contract to pave a gravel road.  No big issue there, except that there had been no public hearing as was required.  That raised a question.

So, I raised the question of why not at the next meeting.  One of the commissioners said that the people that lived in the county were not capable of understanding such complex issues.  I felt that everyone I knew in the county could understand a paving contract, so that posed another question.  Why would he say that?

I dug into the issue a bit and found that the contract included paving a 1/2 mile spur off the main road.  The county road map showed that spur to be the driveway of the commissioner that said we residents couldn’t understand complex issues.

Well at the next commission meeting I brought the matter to everyone’s attention.  The commissioner soon learned that the residents fully understood exactly what was going on and the meeting ended with the Sheriff’s department having to break up the meeting and clear the room.

Well, I find that I have some questions about this virus thing.  Why were we misled and lied to early on?  Why are none of the research scientists questioning anything that is reported to the public even though some of those reports seem questionable?  At the risk of answers to these questions leading to more questions, I began to dig a bit.

I soon bumped into the NIH and the NIAID.  Those are the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases.

Question:  Who are these institutes and what do they do?  They are major funding sources for research, particularly in the area of Gain-of-Function.

Question:  What is that and who does this money go to?  It seems that has to do with how diseases are spread, how fast, and variant issues.  One of the labs getting grant money from these two sources is the China Wuhan Lab where the Caronus 19 virus reportedly came from.

Question:  Who controls where these grants go?  Dr. Fauci, under the Obama administration, approved the grants to the China Wuhan Lab.

Question:  Why have none of the other researchers in the field questioned this, or demanded further investigation?  Because Dr. Fauci can turn off the faucet of their grant money ending their research, if not their careers.  That alone raises a number of questions.

Over a year ago we were told that masks were not effective and should not be used.  Now we are told that we should be wearing a triple-layer mask.  What has changed?

We were told a few months ago that the road back to “normal” was for everyone to get a vaccination.  We are now told that the vaccination may not keep us from getting the virus, but that we should all be vaccinated anyway.

We are told that visiting family, having dinner with friends, attending a wedding, funeral, or church service is a no-no but it is okay to go to a ballgame or a beach.  What?

Don’t call the Sheriff yet, let’s just keep asking questions.

    • I don’t know, Carol. Perhaps that is the point of asking questions. But some of the potential answers could be disturbing. Things such as we have been lied to. Data we have been fed has been manipulated. Some person or persons are more concerned with keeping their spot in the lime light than fixing the issues. The virus was purposely released to spread fear, terror, and wreck economies. We are being manipulated for someone’s or some entities’ gain. I’m not saying those things are true, but just giving examples of what could be disturbing answers.

  1. Just like the television police detective, “Columbo”, who would casually walk away from the suspect; then abruptly turn around (in his rumpled overcoat); strike a pregnant pause pose and then state: “Just one more question”. The suspect’s response would ultimately lead Columbo to putting together the “missing piece” insuring the case resolution.

    In life, as a real police detective, I had to always remain curious in order to ascertain the answers to my questions. Unanswered questions fueled the case investigation. Provable facts had to be established for a case resolution.

    Questions mattered that had to be asked for the answers that mattered the most. Gumshoe did not to dwell on metaphysical navel gazing in order to validate the victims and hold the guilty accountable.

    Stay curious Ken with the next question.
