I don't want the Corona Virus Flu, but how far, is too far?
In my 70 years I have NEVER seen anything like this.
The news media says: the United States leads the world in Corona virus cases!
Horse sh!t!
The United States leads the world in medical technology that is CAPABLE of testing for this virus, and the United States leads the world in media technology.

OUR GOVERNMENT, has ordered the ruination of thousands of independent businesses, by ORDERING their closing for the month of April.

What happens when this Corona virus shows up again next year, or next month?
We gonna shut everything down again, and again, and again?

THIS AIN'T POLIO FOLKS!

And this 2+ TRILLION dollar bailout?
Convert those DOLLARS INTO SECONDS!

Two trillion seconds equates into 63,420 YEARS!

These same smart government officials have already put this country into debt 20 trillion dollars, or 634,200 YEARS for comparison.

Stay in your house! That's an order!

No, that's a form of "martial law".

What's next?

Do you as an adult, FREE AMERICAN, not have enough sense to decide for "yourself" what you need to do.

Do we have an EOTWAWKI apocalypse, or a mean strain of the flu?

Those who give up essential liberty, to purchase a little TEMPORARY SAFETY deserve neither liberty, or safety.
Benjamin Franklin,

And this unemployment bullsh!t. I have 5 friends from Harley Davidson TRYING to sign up. They've been TRYING for over 2 weeks.
Unemployment offices are OVERLOADED, and the can't get through.
This country is going into a recession like no other, over a strain of flu.

I'm still working I'm essential they say or do they mean expendable. I have said it before we get pushed to see how far we will allow . Each time a little more.

I remember polio season in Texas well. Summers were scary and nothing much happened in the way of recreation. People didn't interact much at all but not by government decree. They still had common sense.


Flu deaths are estimated to be somewhere between 290,000 to 650,000 world wide each year and no one gets very excited about it yet as soon as the first deaths from coronavirus began being reported the world began loosing it's collective mind. I blame the media entirely for the panic and the governments immediately saw their chance to step in and try to "save" us and by doing so they are just getting us to accept more government control over our lives. When this is over and it will be, the whole world will be in a neck deep recession and maybe a full blown depression. Hang on boys and girls, you are going to see a world that basically no one alive today has seen.



Me? I stay in the house when I want and go outside when I want just like I always have. I don' mix with crowds but that is my ordinary, every day, mode of operation anyway.

And that's my point. How far will we go.
A person, or family work their whole lives to start a business, and a mean flu strain shows up, and the government orders you to shut it down?
Really?
All those years of work, and sacrifice gone, because the government says so?
Are we as a people so stupid that we need the government to tell us what to do to protect ourselves?

I was in Houston Monday. ALL the lighted signs on freeways, and tollways said the same thing.
ALL Louisiana travelers MUST QUARANTINE.

Sooner, or later, we and the rest of the world are going to figure out how evil communism is and in particular how evil communist China is. None of this had to happen to the world if China had been responsible and not allowed their home brewed viral mess to infect the world. Some might think that it all happened by accident and wasn't on purpose. I think it was absolutely on purpose. China should be shunned back into obscurity until they can prove they are a responsible world citizen.

Apparently some people in this country are okay with an annual "sick season" that should not be accepted as normal. Maybe this time around we will take it seriously and make it a priority to stop these annual disease seasons. If we make it a priority to find new cures and preventives all of this will have not been for nothing. Knowing what we know now, all of this could have been avoided if China had been isolated right off the bat. To me, China is a giant virus and needs to be eradicated. I put our Dummycratic Party in the same category--enemies of mankind.

Our liberal governor has shut down our state to "protect" us. But she put the abortion clinics in the "essential business" category.

There is a porn shop 13 miles east of town. It's been there for over 25 years and I thought the internet would have finished it off years ago but it still persists. My son made a trip that goes past it this morning and he reported it to have customers or at least cars in the parking lot. Funny how our liberal in charge determines what is essential and what is not. Gun shops aren't. porn shops are. Go figger.

You can bet the farm that China will come out of the other side of the World's madness and the Media's fanning the flames of "pandemic" as richer, stronger, healthier, and more sinister in its weaponizing of disease. They, and their bloviating Media rancid dogs, brought the world down, bought low when the market sank, and stand to profit from the ashes when the world turns itself back on.

In the meantime, our lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness were eliminated - PERIOD - and supplanted by a Police State that threatens, like a communist dictator, to imprison us if we dare to disagree. Not my idea of a Free America with a Constitution and Bill of Rights. Dem Politicians like this crisis.
