(There is nothing political in this. It is advice for your health.) The good news is more of us are likely to die from quarantine diabetes or heart disease as we are from COVID.

I’ll repeat it again. People need to get outside and exercise. Take up new hobbies. Talk to their neighbors. Clean up their yards. Fix their cars. Spend time with family and friends. Meet strangers and say hello. Smile more. Laugh at jokes. Spend less time blaming strangers for their problems and more time building their talents. Hike in the woods. Go for a drive. Read a good book. Compliment others. Share their joys and heartaches with those closest to them. Celebrate the holidays. Rejoice in the ending of a year and the start of a new one. Be thankful for all of the blessings in their lives. Thank the lineman that keep electricity flowing, the postman delivering your mail, the city worker that keeps clean water coming in and foul water going out.

In short, if we exercised our bodies and minds as much as we spend online pissing and moaning and pretending to be expert researchers and doctors, we would drop our susceptibility to all diseases and comorbidities by half and be happier each and every day.

I'm thinking it was deleted because it wasn't very honest. Some cherry picking was done and the facts are different.

Political? Of course. Because the states all have different requirements, a uniform nation wide scientific plan would be welcome. Spokane anti-maskers have been driving to Idatucky to shop mask free. Idatucky people come to our state to shop, or work, where masks are required. I went to Idaho in September and mask wearing was taken seriously in the touristy town, but not very much elsewhere. It was up to the local government to decide what to do because their state legislature was using politics instead of science, and ignoring the virus. They still are and are suffering from it. Spokane has an outbreak also.

The majority of people where I live absolutely hate our governor. He was hated before the virus and even more now, for making a decision. It takes courage to do that and not many politicians have that. It takes courage on our part, to try to follow the rules. This country would never survive the WWII era. Black out curtains? It's my right to have my windows uncovered! (In fact one town on the east coast did not participate in the black out and their Freedumb silhouetted cargo ships nicely for the U-boats to torpedo). Gas rationing? Let everybody else not drive, I need to drive a block to the store....etc.

You can deny it all you want and be part of the spread, or you can buck up and help try to get things under control until you can get a vaccination. In fact, vaccine is the only hope that I can see because we live in an Idiocracy where most folks don't have any backbone. What should you hoard? Once again, work on your brain cells. Toilet paper can't do your thinking for you.

Free thinking is tough, I know. Believing the govt and some officials have my best interests is a load of BS. You can call me a super spread. Don't care. If masks work, why people that wear em get sick?

Don't come hear and preach "science".....they don't even know how it spreads. Fauchi said right away masks were useless. Then flipped. Then flipped again. ZERO trust in any of these clowns....

Don't even start on states rights....

I'm starting to think this is a Russian BOT. :rolleyes:

My bet it is a disgruntled member here who is using satire to show the stupidity of the positions.

No, but trolls do.
I find it humorous when one can’t come up with an intelligent response to answer someone’s questions they then fall back on the good old “troll” “bot” and whatever else they can conjure up.

It’s how the sheep justify why they can’t comprehend what’s happening. They fail to see the clear and concise writing on the wall.

How come strip clubs in California can stay open and churches need to close?

Read it again and try it for a day. Nowhere in there did I mention anything political.
My point was, I agree with all that but you’re pretending the agendas aren’t being accomplished. Basically, you’re ignoring it and focusing on other things instead of protecting your freedoms.

No I’m advising on healthy changes. If we keep our freedoms but lose further contact with each other it makes it worse.

Interesting anomalies about this virus: 1/3 who test positive have no idea because they have zero symptoms. When was the last time you had the flu and had absolutely no idea you had the flu? The difference in the symptoms is C-19 can rob carriers of taste and smell.

FWIW - all the cold and flu viruses (there are literally hundreds) are either rhinoviruses or corona viruses.

C-19 can and does kill people. So does the flu - hundreds of thousands every year. By the exact same mechanisms that the flu kills by.

How to explain this anomaly? There are two different C-19 strains. One is potentially lethal and one is almost benign from a mortality standpoint. So why do they treat them both the same?

Some good news is that apparently very few die of the flu in 2020. C-19 is also mysterious in where it attacks. We are impervious at Walmart, Home Depot, casinos and while rioting. But it stealthily kills in churches and home gatherings and funerals.

C-19 has a .4% mortality rate. We have a 1 in 250 chance of dying from it if we catch it. Minuscule unless we are over 65 with substantial health problems.

The average American live to be 79. The average Covid mortality is 80. That would seem to say quite a bit to even the very slightly intuitive.

I would suggest you use your little grey cells a bit more. You are using the same tired old arguments that are spewed out by hateful radio pundits who make good money fomenting ignorance.

Walmart is often used for this. Have you been inside a Walmart? How big is the building? How much time are you inside? Are you singing while in Walmart? The size of a building, the time spent inside, and the use of it all matter. I feel pretty safe in our Walmarche because they have cracked down and really require mask wearing inside, and I go early in the morning when the store is pretty empty. I've not seen any people sitting close together singing as is done in church. Look up the church choir in the Seattle area where the virus spread and killed part of the choir.

The mortality rate may not be much in the big picture until somebody in your family dies from it. The virus is also killing healthy people--again, you need to READ more on this. If you are not killed by it, you can still have nasty side effects again READ some articles about those.

It isn't easy to follow the safety protocol. Our orchestra can only play via Skype and my computer is on its last legs and won't do it. Music festivals were cancelled, etc. It isn't easy. Men on this forum tend to give the impression that they are tough. I see different when it comes to dealing with this. Here's a newspaper article from a Seattle web paper that you can READ. The part I would emphasize is the timeline given. Exposed at Thankgiving, hospitalized, dead at Christmas, New Year's spent planning the funeral. That's the holiday season that is coming up.
