Kansas City Health Director Doc Rex Archer Shares Last Word Tonight On Coronavirus



A bold statement that deserves a highlight from the top health honcho in Kansas City.

His strongest tweet so far picked up by City Hall:

“If you’re over 70, you have absolutely no business going out.” - @RexArcherMD

"If you’re over 60, have a serious health problem or live with someone who fits that description, go nowhere you don’t have to go."

And this leads us to a glimpse at big picture news:

Pandemic & More Perfect Union

The pandemic broke America

Eight weeks into this nation's greatest crisis since World War II, we seem no closer to a national strategy to reopen the nation, rebuild the economy and defeat the coronavirus. Why it matters: America's ongoing cultural wars over everything have weakened our ability to respond to this pandemic.

Dr. Archer is a doctor and I'm not, but I don't think treating him like our Dr. Fauci is appropriate. Media should stop doing that.

In order to erase all doubt, as if there were any, Dr. Archer opens his pie hole and proves he is a nut and should himself be locked up before he hurts anymore people. The guy is Fruitloops. Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. His elevator does not go all the way to the top. He would not know responsible public health policy if it smacked him in his stupid looking face.

Do I feel better after writing that? Only a little.

So Tony, Doctor Barr has "delivered the last word on Covid-19", correct?

And can we take that to mean this is the last TKC topic that will mention Covid-19?
And that no City official will ever again talk about Covid-19?

Even in Captions/Headlines words have meaning, Tony - don't start writing like you worked for the KC Star.

Sorry, Doctor Archer - "Doctor Barr" is the President's latest "fixer", until he generates enough heat that Trump has to fire him and claim he never met the guy.

Archer is nuts people, he’s ranting and freaking out constantly about the thousands upon thousands of deaths that are going to happen if we don’t follow his oeders.... his orders? we have 17 deaths in theee months and 838 cases of which he refuses to say how many recoveries have happened. He’s a sick old man that needs to be replaced, his doom and gloom theories and fear mongering is ridiculous and unwarranted. No wonder q has gone above his head and opened the city back up, and it’s about time too.

We've quickly gone from having some serious public heath doctor experts share their thoughts, concerns, and recommendations to every politico in the c seountry treating this very serious health emergency as nothing more than opportunities for TV face time, ponderous bloviations, and self-importance.
And locally smiley selfies Lucas and Archer are at the very top of the list.
One "plan" after another.
Statements that become more detached from reality and extreme.
Most people have a pretty good idea of what this is all about and what they need to do to keep themselves and their families safe.
There's a whole lot that KCMO city government has to do that's been done very poorly or not at all for decades.
How about focusing on some of that?

Fun fact; Rex owns a gas station in NKC that has been open throughout the entire epidemic, the same epidemic he personally is losing his mind over.

Dave portnay was on national news last night and laid out word for word what he said and how Forbes butchered up the article to make him look bad, they called him five minutes before he went on air and said do you want to change anything he said for the article and he pointed out the things they got wrong and they told him it was too late because they already put the article out two hours before. Another left wing nut out of control hit job from the lame stream media reporting fake news, again.

Rex is over 70 so is he working from his basement???

Tony, you said last week he resigned, what’s up with that?

This is extremely ageist. Not everyone over 70 is in poor health or feeble.

Where Communist China sent us a virus, we get our loans from China to Rebuild. And Bidenfudu and Puleski-tkung fu profit from the same Communist China Partners that they have for decades. While we worry about peanuts.

Dr. Archer is much more qualified than TKC readers know. The city is lucky to have him— too bad more people don’t listen to him. He’s probably the best department leader in municipal govt.

Sorry Boomers, you're going to get this and die. No sense crying about it, denying it, or not believing it will happen. This is what you wanted. You elected a con-man with no common sense, believe every lie he tells you, and think science is fantasy. This is a perfect storm designed to cull the Trumper herd and the rest of us couldn't be happier! This second wave will be much worse than the first.

Anyone intentionally coughing corona virus germs on a police officer or grocery worker should get 20 years to life for attempted murder.

Grocery Store workers have been saints through all of this.

Has anyone seen Sleepy Joe Biden? I have been in my teepee on the reservation during the lockdown and did not have phone service. Sleepy Joe left me an urgent message that he can't remove his Depends. I have a plan to find Sleepy Joe, I just can't tell you about it now.

At least 20% of the 65,000 deaths thought virus would effect them and they went out! They were healthy and thought they would get just a cold. Now they are filled with embalming fluid and wont see another New Years. Ignore the virus at your own peril. Many "healthy people" have underlying health issues they dont know about yet.
