Default Corona virus..your $ .02

.
Have we just endured the first modern biological warfare attack ? Was this corona attack, truly an "accident" ?

I think it was a test in preparation of bigger things to come. It was also to muddy the water for Trump and the conservative party. However Trump may come out of this thing as the hero. He has played his hand well with the central banking industry and the economy comeback could be brilliance in action on his part.

I heard it was a bio weapon right from the git-go. The story I got was we were working with the COVID virus when this strain happened along, but was contained, with a couple of Chinese scientists here with us.
The virus was determined to be too dangerous and difficult to control and the order was to destroy it. Somehow the Chinese working with the project got their hands on a sample and smuggled it back to China, and we're going thru the result of them letting it get away.

I didn't believe the story at first, but with the mutations reported, the way it hides in a host without causing symtoms, (think typhoid Mary), and can either be so mild it passes for a cold or allergy, or it kills you has not just us, but many other people wondering.

No way the truth will be told. There are so many theories being told now, the truth is hidden among them. Bat virus that crossed species, or biological weapon? If you discover the truth let us know!

I think the socialist elite are absolutely thrilled at the reaction of the general public when fear is injected.

Rush Limbaugh nailed it today when he said that all their (socialist) "theories" of how to bring the masses into line, have now been PROVEN to work.

They have tanked a great economy, and we will be very fortunate if it doesn't turn into a full blown depression.
Us older folks who can no longer work a full time job could see hyperinflation wipe out our savings.

The covid-19, or starvation. Which sounds the best for you?

Choose your poison.

It's like pulling hens teeth to get cooperation with Social Security and IPERS (the holder of my pension) at the present. They are being inundated with phone calls since their offices are closed. I waited on the speaker phone for over an hour the other day and got the newest receptionist in the fold. I may be retired for months before I get a check from either. I tried to do it earlier but both said that I was too far out from my retirement date and to set up an appointment for the end of March or first of April......then they closed their doors.

If it goes that far south Dee then there will be a lot of us in the same boat.

yup conspiracy theory. Like sandhillbilly said the same was asked with sars, mers, H1N1, Ebola and aids too. There are billions of bacteria and virus in a big stew pot on this planet just waiting for the right conditions to mutate into something like this. Its why we had the plague, polio, small pox, measles and hundreds of other diseases. Just spit on a slide and look at it under a microscope and see how many bacteria are alive in you! If it was created by china why would they release it there when it would have been a simple thing to just take it to Cleveland or Detroit or anywhere in the US in a bottle and open the bottle in some motel and walk away.


personaly I think its more likely God is doing a bit of purging then china is attacking. This world is getting overpopulated and its probably just one of Gods natural relief valves. Or its him telling us wed better wake up and start paying attention. Because were not the bad asses we think we are.


I hope GPA gets his retirement straightened out. That's much more important then some welfare bum getting more food stamp money. Its money he worked hard for. I hope all of you here have enough food to ride this out and a few grand in cash in the house. Heck we were all set to build a new home this summer and I told my wife yesterday that we maybe should think about just living where we are and keeping the savings in case this gets worse or something else comes down the line. Told her even my habit of buying a new truck every 3 years should be reevaluated. This old world today is a very fragile thing. I think we all found that out. You can go from driving a new truck off the lot today to searching for toliet paper and food a week later. Maybe its just time to reevaluate our priorities

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!

The Holy Spirit whispers in my ear, "This is nothing compared to what is coming.
Stay hidden, be still, restock supply's when it is possible, be patient and cautious."



The grocery delivery sites have gone from same day service to delivery a week after you order.



Still in my opinion it puts us less at risk than going to the store.


They deliver to my back door. We get them inside and put away, then scrub hands very very well.


We have been out a bit in the last 2 weeks, doctoring for Cindy's back.
She had surgery on wed to releave pressure on nerves at the L1-L2 point.


Was back home same day. Still a bit sore, but doing better. Most of the pain is gone. And the "Fireballs and rockets" that were shooting down her legs are gone.


Now its a matter of combating osteo-perosis, trying to improve posture, regain stability walking.


Praise the Lord for he is good. Once I accepted that it was out of my control or ability to change in any meaninful way everything clicked like a swiss clock.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
