      @2bRealist Your are right! They never asked us, they FORCED us into this mess!
      And they did side step our Constitution to do it!

      @2bRealistYOU are mistaken. TDS is Totally Dumb Suckers aka trump derangement syndrome is someone incapable of seeing the truth about trump and they follow him blindly as if he is a God. A cult like mentality designed for the drones(supporters) to protect the queen bee (Trump). Providing a sense of belonging for the disenfranchised; those who made really bad life choices. So your assertion that I suffer from being so stupid that I would even listen to that jackass named Trump, is truly insulting to me. I am not a bottom feeder.

    • @Raul Sanchez Cool beans.. but you will still be down on your knees screaming at the sky WHYYYYYYYYYYY… in a cringe worthy TDS infused fit after the election O_o

      Deal with it…

      @2bRealist I won’t be upset a bit in November. Trump hasn’t the numbers in the swing states to win electoral college again and he won’t win the popular vote, he has screwed to many people and demonstrated just enough stupidity to loss enough of his base to lose. Not just lose but badly.

      @2bRealist you aren’t bright for thinking trump has a fat chance in hell, of winning. Everything is going blue the house, senate and the white house. Will you cry when trump is indicted?

    Learn from the best. Germany is the leading economy in Europe. Their results about this crisis is a lesson and moreover Germany has reopened. Common sense is not common nowadays.

    Early on CDC did not recommend mask for those without symptoms. This was a HUGE error on the part of the CDC. Masks and Gloves work. I will keep mine and use them every Flu season. This is part of learning from the current situation.

      Jon Leonard, yes that was the directive in our country too, it’s my thought that this was simply in an effort to access PPE for front line employees who were at the highest risk without them. So many countries were ill prepared in this respect, ours accessed the military stores as we had endured the most dreadful bush fires and every mask of quality had been sent to the fire fighters. The directive changed after supplies were procured, I am sad that we were not trusted enough to have been told the truth in the first instance, most people I believe would have left the masks for front line workers and made their own from the get go. .

  5. Freedom and the constituion are what matters. Honesty within the media and politicians should be mandatory.

    26:42 My Grandfather used to say, “If you have your health we can figure out anything else. We can fix anything else. If it’s about money we’ll figure it out. But you have to have your health.” That’s why public health versus the economy, I don’t see the trade off. We have to have our health. We should protect human life. I don’t care if a person is old. I’m old by your definition. I still think I have a value. My mother is old. She’s the most precious person to me. So protect every life. I’m not going to trade off public health. We’ll figure out the dollars. We’ll figure out the economic impact. But we’ll protect people in the meantime. And we’ll protect their health.

      Rachelle M My dad told me the exact same thing, he died at 97. born in 1896, a soldier in WW1 he lived a long and productive life. I was born when he was 67. Long after he lost his first wife and was a father to 5 sons who had fought in WW2. He told me you will live your life in chapters and that has been so very true. He saw enormous change in his life. he had already written the first chapters, having been a child, a war veteran and a young dad when the brand new T Model Ford rolled off the line. He lived through the great depression and was still alive 20 years after man walked on the moon. He would say if you are fit and heathy you can handle anything and he pretty much did. Money never meant much to him, enjoy the good times and be stoic thru the bad. The last few months have cost me financially but we are well, my wife’s elderly but amazingly fit 80 year old dad is safe and loving life, my two 20ish yo sons and he spend a lot of time together bringing enormous value to each other’s lives. He adds to them and makes them better men.
      Your grandfather was a wise man, hold his memory close. Stay safe and well, best wishes from Australia.

    There is hope…Revelation 21:4 – “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore”. Isaiah 33:24 – “And no resident will say “I am sick” But, what do we have to do to enjoy this blessings? John 17:3 – “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ”
    1 John 2:17 – “The one who does the will of God remains forever”

    General updates: You won’t believe my husband actually pulled out our savings to invest in sh*tty companies. When he confessed I had to ask around before LEGAL247RECOVERY. C O M was recommended to help with the recovery of our savings. I was at first very furious thinking he was cheating on me. But it even turned out worse because a bad Investment can leave us broke in future. I have forgiven him and now he’s very careful not to fall prey again for those parading as reliable investment company
