is Something else is going on ?

bear with me here. I think something else is happening behind the scene with this corona virus or else the "stupid virus" arrives first followed by the corona virus.
if this is only as bad as they claim, why such a panic, the flu has killed more people this year and every year than this virus has. schools are closing, stores are closing, malls are closing. restaurants are going to pick up service only. international flights are shut down and they are talking about stopping domestic air travel too.
New York has drive thru testing centers, for anyone that wants tested. why the panic ? people see the government react like this and they react too. crime rates are going to go up. cleaning supplies were the first items to be raided, now they moved on to food. if people keep reacting this way, the stores will start closing because of nothing to sell but clothes.
people cant get food, they will start taking what others have....did the stupid virus hit the Government first ? their reaction is setting people off their normal thought process. why would Government officials act this way if this virus is only so-so bad and not an OMG virus that they know they cant control? what are they not saying ?



is this such a thing ? if so, they cant tell us because the panic would get a thousand times worse. is this, or does this have the potential to be the new flu pandemic of the 1800's ?


i think i might buy a few things from my previous list tomorrow. maybe not !!

makes one think about this. the MNM , always does this. every time there is a disaster , they claim how bad it is and the people go out and go crazy buying things up and the disaster ends up to be less sever as they said it would.

I think the issue is how fast the virus spreads and hospitals aren't setup to treat the high number of patients they are seeing. I read in the paper that a local hospital has 25 total breathing machines for a town of 21,000 residents. If even 50 patients need breathing treatment, half will go without.

If anybody doesnít think this virus is serious stuff, ask yourself this question. Why are entire countries shutting down? Why did the NBA, NHL, MLB and the NCAA shut down? Why did DisneyWorld, Disneyland and Universal shut down their theme parks? Why are schools, restaurants, bars and concerts being shut down? Has this ever happened in our lifetime?

Yep, this is serious stuff and the leadership (?) at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is rudderless. The CDC is advising everybody to stop shaking hands, a simple thing to do, and what was the leadership doing at Fridayís Rose Garden press conference? You guessed it, shaking hands.

Listen to what the science and medical professionals say and heed their advice.

Got my second notice to do the Census online today. Tells me the same as my first notice did....I will be getting a form to return in a few weeks if they don't hear from me online. It's a true second notice, as it's marked as such. They really could have saved the trouble of a second notice.

mom said a local news station said that al l you need to tell is number of residents and age , not house size or income. they also reported that a Lancaster couple said a pair of census takers showed up and wanted to go thru their house and asked a lot of personal questions. wouldn`t leave after being told to. they left after the husband got their license plate number and threatened to call the police.

We're paying now for a failure to plan...by the people we pay thousands a month to for healthcare...and so we have to hit the kill switch on our economy so they can catch up. It ain't rocket science. Again, big business effed up and we pay the price. America is a loser now, get used to it.
