Here we go again. As the populace, except for the severely mentally deficient, begin to realize this we nothing but a naked power grab, its time for the WHO to trot out the boogeyman of "you might be able to get it again and die twice crap". Again, based on vaporware "models" and false-read tests. All to further justify continued confinement for literally NOTHING. Yes, people die, and its tragic for their family. But the fact those families are so willing to destroy their children's economic future and freedom to give the government power to restrict any number of rights "for the greater good" is the actual frightening thing of this entire charade. Like invasion of the body snatchers. Less than two generations of brainwashing in the school system has led to the majority of society completely unable to think for themselves and rely completely on the government for food, sustenance and thought.

And yet no one could ever criticize Jim Jordan for being an opportunist--even the Ohio State wrestlers he knew were being molested by the team doctor when Jordan was assistant coach. Weird.

Mr. Guthrie said...

Dear Ms. Pelosi:

I write to you out of utter disdain! You are as despicable and un-American as the traitor Jane Fonda.

I am a soon to be a 75 year-old who has voted in every state and local election since 1966. I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats alike. I have worked on campaigns for both Republicans and Democrats, white and black. I served the country that I love in Vietnam, as my son did in the Middle East . I was awarded two bronze stars. I have been involved in politics since age 6 when my father was campaign manager for a truly great American Congressman, Charles Raper Jonas, who worked for his constituents and his country, and was to be admired, unlike you.

You obviously haven't read the Constitution recently, if ever, the Federalist Papers, or even David McCulloughs book on John Adams. You ought to take the time while riding around in your government provided luxury executive jet to do just that. You represent Socialistic and even Marxist principals that our founding fathers tried to avoid when setting out the capitalistic republican form of government represented by our Constitution.

I find it interesting that you and your husband are multi-millionaires with much of your fortune being made as a result of your public service. You have controlled legislation that has enhanced your husband's investments both on and off shore. At the same time you redistributed the wealth of others. Our system of a free market economy is being destroyed by the likes of you. You ride around in a Gulfstream airplane at the tax payers expense while criticizing the presidents of companies who produced something for the economy. You add nothing to the economy of the United States; you only subtract therefrom.

I would like to suggest that you return to the city of fruitcakes and nuts and eat your husband's canned tuna and pineapple - produced by illegal immigrants and by workers who have been excluded from the protection that 90% of the legal workers in the United States have.

I await your defeat in the next election with glee...

Don’t ever use the term un-American again for protesters who love this country and are exercising their rights upon which this country was founded. By the way, while I served in the Army, I was spit on by the same type of lunatics who support you and who you probably supported in the 60s and 70s. You are an embarrassment to all of us who served so that you would have the protected right of free speech to call us un-American. But at the same time, I have the right to write you to notify you that I consider you to be un-American, as do the majority of the people of this formerly great country. You are a true disgrace to most of the people who served this country by offering themselves for public service in the United States Congress.

I feel certain your aides will not share this letter with you, but I intend to share it with many...

Of course you don't build any real immunity a "corona virus" is the common cold virus it constantly mutates and any slight change defeats any immunity, people on average get 2-4 colds per year. There can be no effective vaccine. Even the flu vaccine which has decades of work is only 50% effective in a good year.

The vast majority of deaths are from the elderly and already sick, over half the deaths have occurred patients that were in nursing homes already. The ave age is over 80 with more than 1 prextg condition.

No one has been able to say Why can't we just quarantine the at risk?

If we had a functioning media this would be common knowledge, instead we need to hear about the latest daily "ism" outrage violation.

The media is a joke and anyone relying upon it is more misinformed than if they never watch or read any MSM.

This is some "get off my lawn" ranting here. How pissed are you about Kelly Loeffler? Are you angry about Dick Durbin? Are you pissed about Trump skipping Vietnam because of 'bone spurs'? Or do you just reserve that for the Democrat side of the aisle.

Thank you for your service. Your son as well.

You don't seem very well read to me. Just another self-appointed spokesman for all veterans.

I think Donald the Dump is as traitor.

Look at this guy, he must be a Doctor or Epidemiologist, right? Nope, he just watched Trump speak and now he knows shit. STFU and let adults run the country dumbass.

Your misinformation is "common knowledge" to Fox Entertainment viewers.

The "media" is doing their job. They fact check Dotard's daily lies.

If you watch his daily campaign rallies, then you are the one who is misinformed.

In the world outside your mind requires more than saying one is "disputed." So is the ave death not over 80 years old with multiple prxtg conditions, are hospitals actually over run, burdened, are the makeshift hospitals in parks or the Navy Hospital ships being used, is a "corona" virus not actually the common cold virus, is the flu vaccine more than 50% effective in a good year, were there not 80K deaths in the US of the flu in 2017, is there a reason why we can't just isolate the elderly and sick instead of everyone of the 320 million plus ppl, is Sweden not just as well off after doing nothing, does bill gates and pharma not stand to make billions on a fake vaccine, do not the doctors who actually treat patients not say HCQ works?

Please tell me who here is misinformed...what did CNN tell you to think today?

Anonymous said...

No you haven't dipshit @3:18. You haven't refuted a single fact of any of this hoax. From efficacy of confinement of general populace. To why models have precipitously dropped from multi-million American deaths even WITH draconian faux-martial law to nothing more than a "bad" flu year of 61k deaths. Or why flu deaths in the populace have decreased to nearly nothing, with corona deaths account for the remainder of the average. To the FACT that hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating these infections and that the only rebuttals to this fact are 4th or 5th person related accounts.

Dafuq was wrong with what I said? I also thanked the guy, and his son for their service.

He's pissed at a bunch of Democrats as if the Republicans don't do all the same shit.

^^^ Did you know that 1/5 of infected people ages 20-44 have been hospitalized? With 2-4% of those requiring ICU care. Doesn't sound like much, huh. No big deal? By some quick google search, there's approximately 110M US citizens in this age group. Let's say 15% of these people happen to get COVID 19 around the same time. That's over 16M people who have it. 20% of those 16M require hospitalization, that's over 3M people. In total there are about a million staffed hospital beds in the country. It varies by state, some state's hospitals will get hammered, some will be ok.

Is this getting through to you yet? This isn't even accounting for those outside the age range that inadvertently come in contact with someone in this age group. You know, Grandma or Grandpa accidentally needing some groceries and Son or Grandson bringing those groceries by and getting careless and boom, someone's really sick. Or just people outside of that age range.

So again, I'm going to let the adults in the room continue to advise us. I assume you don't go to your mechanic for financial advice and you don't go to your financial advisor for mechanical care issue advice.

It seems you like to consider yourself wise and just a real 'thinker' but I think you should probably step away from Fox News for a moment.

I think this was called by some experts weeks ago, the curve would begin to flatten due to behavior and dumb assholes, like yourself, would filter out of the cracks and say "see, we didn't need to do all this quarantine garbage, it's all getting better already". I mean, it's like fucking clockwork because you morons are just that...morons.

And as of Thursday April 9th, according to the NIH: “Hydroxychloroquine has showed promise in a lab setting against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 and preliminary reports suggest potential efficacy in small studies with patients. However, we really need clinical trial data to determine whether hydroxychloroquine is effective and safe in treating COVID-19.”

Moral of the story, go be stupid somewhere else. I hear there's a Trumptard room on reddit or something for you to stroke out on bullshit rumors and innuendos.
