FIRST, PERSONAL AND REAL LIFE OBSERVATION(S)
I PERSONALLY HAD, AND, YES, LIVED THROUGH THE FOLLOWING:
- GERMAN MEASLES
- CHICKEN POX
- A SEVERE GASTRONOMICAL BUG THAT HAD ME IN BED, FACE DOWN, UNMOVING FOR ALMOST 4 DAYS
- PNEUMONIA AT LEAST 10 TIMES , ONCE WAS BED FAST
- BRONCHITIS MORE TIMES THAN I CAN REMEMBER
- COMMON COLD A LOT
- STOMACH FLU 10-15 TIMES
- A UNKNOWN INFECTION I’VE HAD SINCE 2002, CAUSED, FIRST, ULCERATE COLITIS, THEN INFLAMMATION AROUND THREE VALVES OF MY HEART, AND THEN CHRONIC EAR INFECTION. FROM ALL THE BLOOD, URINE, EKG’s, X-RAYS, CAT-SCANS, MRI’s THE DOCTORS, INCLUDING A CARDIOLOGIST AND A GASTROLOGIST, DETERMINED I DID NOT HAVE : EPSTEIN BAR, AIDS/HIV, HERPES (ANY KIND), TUBERCULOSIS, EMPHYSEMA, CANCER…NOT EVEN LEPROSY. THE INFECTION IS UNKNOWN STILL IN ORIGIN AND TYPE. ONE THING THEY DID DETERMINE: WHATEVER IT IS IT IS NOT CONTAGIOUS. WHATEVER THIS INFECTION IS IT MADE SO SICK THAT I WAS BED FAST FOR 6 WEEKS, MISSED WORK THE WHOLE TIME, WENT TO COUNTLESS DOCTORS, AND SPENT A WEEK IN THE HOSPITAL. ALL OF THIS (AND IT’S SYMPTOMS) IS TREATABLE, AND TREATED WITH MEDS.
On top of that, I’ve personally lived through when these diseases were around, and did NOT catch them:
The point of my sharing this is:
NOT EVERYBODY GETS EVERY DISEASE. SOME HAVE BEEN EVEN HEALTHIER THAN ME.
IF YOU DO GET SICK…IT IS RARELY THE “END OF THE WORLD”.
SECONDLY, NEWS & VIEWS THAT ARE PERTINENT TO THE ISSUE OF COVID-19, AKA CORONAVIRUS
With the media and even many of the world’s SUPPOSED “medical experts” in on this, against us; as well as things like this and many more frauds, being perpetrated……how do you even know that those figures are correct, it might well be lower (and, yes, it could be higher, but as this virus has been PROVEN to be weaker even than the flu bug, then common sense alone dictates that we should be taking a wary look at the fear-mongering they are trying to do) than what they are reporting…..
When the media is enlisted against you, little you read can be believed……unless the source has REPEATEDLY personally proven to your senses that they do not lie……but even then it is hard—the WHO has been busted by a major American University using false information to craft their stats, and that is a world-wide major health org, when you cannot believe them, what does that tell you (that you need to be extra vigilant) ? SEE: HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE .
There’s no need to send the economy into a depression which is going to kill more people, and impose draconian restrictions on personal liberty, which is also negatively impacting peoples health by, among other things, discouraging getting outside and exercising, and getting sunshine both of which are vital to maintaining good health.
ONE STATE REPORTS:
According to the latest stats I could find for my state, there were 22 deaths from the flu in 22 days…and 7 deaths in 10 days from coronavirus. Do we really want our government shutting everything down for a virus? The flu would have everything shut down for at least 5 months of the year. A spokesperson for the department of health said that many people are going in to be tested for Covid19 and they end up testing positive for Influenza A instead. (Not trying to negate anyone’s opinion, just trying to share another perspective.)
43% of small businesses say they’ll be forced to close permanently if they don’t get help soon, survey says
Small businesses have been battered by the coronavirus outbreak. Main Street in Rockton, Ill., shown here late last month, is normally a bustling commercial district.
Small businesses are suddenly hanging on by a thread.
Forty-three percent of small businesses say they will have to permanently close within six months without some sort of quick cash infusion or fast improvement in economic conditions, according to a Friday survey that gives another look into the coronavirus outbreak’s swift and severe economic damage.
Coming the same day as a “devastating” jobs report revealing the loss of 701,000 jobs in March — which some economist said is only a glimpse of the carnage to come — a survey by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and MetLife MET, -1.17% revealed:
• 24% have already shut down on a temporary basis, and 40% of the small businesses that are still open say they will probably have to close temporarily close within the next two weeks.
• Though 43% of the 500 polled businesses say they can’t survive without some sort of government assistance and/or change in economic conditions, 46% say the economy needs between six months and a year to return to the way it was.
• 54% said the American economy is in “poor” health.
Friday’s poll results are a special edition of an ongoing index that the national business trade association and the insurer MetLife have been using since 2017 to gauge small-business attitudes and economic conditions.
The index reached a record high of 71.7 out of 100 when researchers talked to businesses about their confidence in local economies and other factors in December and January; those same results showed a record 60% of businesses saying they were optimistic about the national economy.
Friday’s survey arrives during a key date in the federal government’s effort to help the country’s approximately 30 million small businesses.
Friday is the first day it will start accepting applications for $350 billion in forgivable small-business loans. The loans are one part of a $2 trillion stimulus package that includes $1,200 direct checks to individuals and an extra $600 per week for unemployment claims.
More than half of the businesses (56%) said direct cash payments are the best way to help, and 30% favor Small Business Administration loans, the survey said.
Cash flow and customer foot traffic are grinding down as consumers stay indoors and states impose shelter-in-place orders that temporarily close “nonessential” business and require restaurants to operate only on a delivery and takeout basis.
Almost 460,000 of the 701,000 vanishing jobs in March were in the hotels, restaurants and the hospitality industry, according to Friday’s nonfarm-payrolls report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Other observers say there’s a limited time to help small businesses because many small businesses only have cash buffers to last them several weeks.
Commercial bankruptcy filings could start increasing as soon as this month, according to a prediction by one bankruptcy expert.
The Coronavirus Hoax.
Quotes from Patriots all over: there is, for due reason, emotions flared sometimes, and politics discussed.
Someone had all day long callously posted that they didn’t care if families lost their businesses and homes, government “knew better”…the response is below:
You are delusional if you think this isn’t affecting small businesses! They will be out of business soon! Your orange “messiah” and your stupid liberals are totally screwing our country for a virus that is not nearly as deadly as the flu or pneumonia. And yes more people starve to death every week than this virus has killed in four months. As Rahm Emanuel said “Never let a good crisis go to waste!” This shut down is unnecessary and people are going to be hurt. And the bad economy is STILL OWNED by your orange messiah TRUMP!
Then someone said, rather casually:
Part of the problem with this virus is that you can infect someone before you know you have it.
The common flu virus works the same way. You can infect others with that before you know you have it, as well. And thousands die of the flu every year. I think maybe people don’t realize that…if you are concerned, self quarantine. That’s how this should have been handled from the beginning. If you don’t want to take the risk of getting a virus, stay home. If you are self quarantined, you stand zero chance of getting it, since you have zero contact with the outside world.
WHEN DISCUSSING THE MISERY, POVERTY, AND EVEN DEATH VIA STARVATION AS THE RESULT OF LOSING 50% OR MORE OF ALL BUSINESSES IN AMERICA, SOMEONE FLIPPANTLY TOSSED THIS BROMIDE, SAYING COMPARING A MISERY OF A WEAK VIRUS TO DESTROYING AMERICA’S BUSINESSES AND ECONOMY:
Uh one is a contagious virus….apple to oranges lol
WHICH MET THE RESPONSE:
Dead is dead. If the concern is lives, people should be concerned about about one as much as the other. I agree it is apple’s to oranges, the flu, and starvation cause vastly more deaths than Coronavirus.
[NOTE: These are FACTS: FROM JANUARY 1 TO MARCH 25, GLOBALLY:
133, 039 have DIED from The COMMON Flu.
21,297 FROM COVID-19
2,382,324 FROM HUNGER.
OVER 5 TIMES AS MANY DIE FROM THE COMMON FLU EVERY YEAR AS THEY DO FROM COVID-19.
IN TRUTH, COVID-19 IS FROM THE SAME STRAIN OF VIRUSES AS THE COMMON FLU AND THE COMMON COLD. ALL THAT THE TERM “NOVEL” MEANS IN RELATION TO NOVEL CORONAVIRUS IS THAT IT IS MERELY A NEW STRAIN OF FLU/COLD…AND NOT NEAR AS STRONG, AND NOT NEAR AS DEADLY.
YET WE ARE WITNESSING A GLOBAL HYSTERIA AND IT’S ATTENDANT LOCK-DOWNS AND UNNECESSARY REGULATORY RESTRICTIONS.
We’ve simply never done this before in our history. These are not mere quarantine laws that supporters cite to justify what is going on today. Quarantine laws traditionally separate an individual or an entire group of people from the general population. What we are doing now, however, is locking down the entire general population.
Whether they use the term or not, governors are ordering nothing short of martial law, shutting down nearly all businesses and churches to the point that there will be no public services for Easter and Passover under any circumstance, and unemployment will surpass the levels of the Great Depression. Yes, there are times when that might be necessary, but the question should require a debate, transparency, time limits, and the production of more evidence about the value of these additional measures, which will undoubtedly grow legs in the coming days.
One might retort that in this circumstance, with modern travel, the disease is already rampant everywhere. But that is circular logic. In that case, it casts doubt on the entire premise of categorical lockdown, given that this has already spread to every state. Locking everyone down indoors is not a proven method of quarantine in this circumstance, where the virus is already ubiquitous.
Horowitz: Is this quarantine or tyranny?

Moreover, most of the past court cases were over clearly constructed statutes. These edicts are nothing more than memos unilaterally drawn up by governors and mayors every few days. They are arbitrarily constructed and enforced. Mass transit, the ultimate virus spreader, is still open, yet single businesses with few people in the office are closed, and individuals just driving alone in their cars for pleasure or strolling in a state park can get pulled over by a cop. Marijuana shops are considered essential in California, but not gun shops. So many important medical procedures are banned, while abortion in many states is still considered “essential.”
There’s got to be some limit. As the Supreme Court said in the landmark Shelton v. Tucker (1960) case, “Even [when] the governmental purpose [is] legitimate and substantial, that purpose cannot be pursued by means that broadly stifle fundamental personal liberties when the end can be more narrowly achieved.” It can’t be unlimited and indiscriminate, and pronouncing the death penalty on jobs, the economy, and the mental health of hundreds of millions of people is as broad as it gets.
Remember, these governors are just getting warmed up. We’re only two weeks into this phase. At this pace, if we don’t rise up and demand answers, there is no limit to what these politicians might do with their divine right of kings. It’s appalling that Congress and state legislatures are in recess indefinitely, as random executives – from governors and mayors to county supervisors and sheriffs – rule the nation by fiat. It’s time for some real debate and accountability with public input and hearings (remotely, if needed).
All of us are willing to sacrifice for public safety – a lot. But there are limits, and there are serious questions about whether those sacrifices are even helping, or in some instances, downright hurting. Either way, we will never recover from this devastating blow to liberty.
As Patrick Henry warned in 1788, “Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men, without a consequent loss of liberty! I say that the loss of that dearest privilege has ever followed, with absolute certainty, every such mad attempt.”
In the comments section for the above article, first out was this:
Okay, so is it a choice between ruining the economy to save lives, running the economy at the cost of lives, keeping our freedom but having people die of coronavirus, or losing freedom in the name of staying alive?
If anyone here has a perfect solution, I’d love to hear it. As it is, the current dilemmas of the day are now costing me more energy than I have.
[MY NOTE: Rather hysterical and binary thinking there. Here’s the reply.]
There is no perfect solution, but far more will die during quarantine that will from the virus.. did you panic with the common cold or flu last year or the year before that? nope… so why panic now?
These measures are going to save zero lives and will in fact COST lives in the long run when many are living in cardboard boxes with no job and no food.
Again, these measures are doing nothing but killing the economy. Anyone who thinks we’ve slowed it down is fooling themself.
When you look at the map with the most corona virus cases. They are always the ones with the most martial law and strict stay at home.. the ones with the fewest allow the most freedom… funny how that works.. tyranny spreads the virus and freedom stops it…
Prof. Walter Ricciardi, scientific advisor to Italy’s minister of health said, and I quote, “The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus. … On re-evaluation by the NIH,” he says, “only 12% of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88% of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many two or three.”
…Italy was actually exposed.. 88 percent of the deaths they reported for corona were NOT actually corona..SEE ABOVE QUOTE AND SOURCE.
…they are laying off full medical teams at the hospital in my state…. do you know of any business expecting a surge that fires people? All of the companies that do Christmas hire people.. all of the Florists hire people for Valentines Day and Mother’s Day…. no one fires people when they expect to get busy…
Those who will trade their liberty for perceived safety will lose both.
LINK TO PERTINENT FACTS .
Is COVID-19, aka Coronavirus, really as bad as they say it is?
EARTH’S POPULATION: 7.8 BILLION.
*TOTAL CASES OF COVID-19: 1,271,875
*TOTAL DEATHS FROM COVID-19: 69,405
*TOTAL NUMBER OF THOSE FULLY RECOVERED ALREADY: 262,424
The * is there because of all the lying from about every source in every nation. Example: It’s been shown that Italy LIED about how many died from COVID-19; China tried to hide it: Spain has LIED about their numbers; here in the U.S. Trump and HIS Surgeon General, and HIS CDC, and other Admin. sycophants have lied, down played, hid, fudged, and then lied some more. The actual, TRUE numbers are in all likelihood MUCH LOWER.
BUT we will work with these numbers nonetheless.
There are 7.8 BILLION people.
ONLY .0016% OF ALL PEOPLE- supposedly- are even getting COVID-19.
Of the supposed 1,271,875 million that have or had it- again, supposedly had it- already we have over 261,424 FULLY RECOVERED! THE MATH: ALREADY 1/5TH of ALL who ever had this have ALREADY FULLY RECOVERED!
COVID-19/Coronavirus is NOT as bad as they are making it to be.
So, to recap. ONLY ABOUT .0016% of the entire world population have or HAD COVID-19. BUT of the supposed TOTAL number that have/had COVID-19 already over 80% have FULLY RECOVERED.
Let me be clear in saying this:
1.THIS IS NOT A PANDEMIC.
2. THIS IS NOT AS BAD AS THE COMMON FLU.
3. THIS IS NOT EVEN BAD FOR ALL THOSE WHO GET IT; 80%-85% OF ALL CASES ARE MILD, WITH 80%-81% FULLY RECOVERING WITH NO MEDICAL TREATMENT!
4. STOP THE HYSTERIA.
5. STOP THE LIES.
6. STOP THE UNNECESSARY QUARANTINES AND LOCK-DOWNS!
Can wearing a face mask protect against the 2019 coronavirus?
SARS-CoV-2 spreads from person to person via small respiratory droplets. These are generated when a person with the virus exhales, coughs, or sneezes. You can contract the virus if you breathe in these droplets.
Additionally, respiratory droplets containing the virus can land on various objects or surfaces. Touching a contaminated object or surface and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth can also lead to infection.
Surgical masks can’t protect against infection with SARS-CoV-2. Not only does the mask not filter out smaller aerosol particles, but air leakage also occurs through the sides of the mask as you inhale.
N95 respirators can protect against smaller respiratory droplets, such as those containing SARS-CoV-2. However, the CDC currently doesn’t recommend Trusted Source their use outside of healthcare settings.
THIRDLY, A STERN REBUKE OF THE FEAR AND COWARDICE IN THE (SUPPOSEDLY) OVERCOMING, VICTORIOUS CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
A FULL 170 TIMES GOD TELLS US TO “FEAR NOT”!
63 TIMES GOD SAYS “BE NOT AFRAID”.
37 TIMES GOD TELLS “DO NOT FEAR”
40 TIMES GOD TELLS US TO HAVE HIS PEACE.
64 TIMES GOD SAYS TO “TRUST IN THE LORD”.
46 TIMES GOD TELLS US TO “TRUST IN GOD”. AND…
52 TIMES GOD SAYS SIMPLY “TRUST GOD”.
CHURCH of THE One, True, Living God…WHY do we fear then, and NOT trust God when HE has told us 472 times to do the EXACT OPPOSITE!
Is COVID-19 greater than:
The Palsy? NO.
Being blind from birth? NO.
Being deaf? NO.
The Lord God of Heaven and Earth? NO!
Did not OUR Lord God Almighty:
Create the ENTIRE Universe? YES.
Save Noah and his ENTIRE family from the Global Flood? YES.
Save Lot and those who LISTENED to God from Sodom and Gomorrah? YES.
Bring 6,000,000 slaves OUT of Egypt? YES.
Part the Red Sea AND the River Jordan? YES
Give a 15 year old shepherd named David the Victory over a 13 foot tall WARRIOR named Goliath? YES.
Deliver Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from a fiery furnace? YES.
Save Daniel from the lion’s den? YES.
Save Jonah OUT of the belly of the whale? YES.
Then save the entire city and Kingdom of Nineveh? YES.
Then WHY do we fear a virus that is NOT even as strong as the COMMON Flu???
Church, we’ve grown SOFT. LACKADAISICAL. APATHETIC. WORLDLY.
We know the names of our 12 favorite entertainers/athletes…but the church CAN’T name all 12 Apostles!
Church, we can tell the story lines, name the characters of our favorite shows…but we can’t quote ONE verse except John 3:16!
WHERE is our faith and trust?
Where is our holiness and righteousness?
Where, dear church, is our courage and boldness?
Why are we so puny in faith, and so strong in self reliance and self will???
WHY do we cower when we HAVE all the power in Heaven and in Earth LIVING IN OUR HEARTS?
The same JESUS that healed 10 LEPERS AT THE SAME TIME…AND KEPT ALL 12 OF HIS APOSTLES FROM GETTING LEPROSY…HE IS OUR GOD!
Church, QUIT COWERING.
QUIT being hysterical!
We have too many confusing fear for common-sense! TRUST GOD.
We have too many mistaking a mask for “safety”! TRUST GOD.
Isaiah 54:17 King James Version (KJV)

Psalm 91 King James Version (KJV)
91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
