America it seems is in a bad dream that it just can’t wake up from. Half of our country believes this is a nothingburger and a hoax, the other half is starting to realize that this is quiet possibly a worst case scenario and are emptying the shelves of everything they can get their hands on.
Currently I believe our government is trying to do their best to keep utter chaos from being unleashed. They have been slowly rolling out closure’s here closure’s there etc. However that could be doing more harm than good with the spread of this virus. Is the government just trying to suppress panic? Or are they hoping that people aren’t prepared and when it all comes tumbling down they beg their government to save them and trade away their freedoms? I can tell you now I will not trade away my freedoms and become a slave, I’d rather die.
This Virus is Dangerous. This pandemic is not all hype. Government inevitably seeks expansion of power no matter the means. Is this virus a perfect opportunity for them to expand power and control? You bet it is?
But don’t blow this virus off as “it’s just the flu.” Here are some numbers for you:
8,645 actively infected and transmitting on this day
580 cumulative dead since day one, with 58 deaths on this day
5,432 cumulative recovered since day one
By May 4th, 2020, if no travel restrictions are put in place:
122,529 actively infected and transmitting on this day
10,432 cumulative dead since day one, with 910 deaths on this day
85,332 cumulative recovered since day one
By June 4th, 2020, if no travel restrictions are put in place:
1.7 million actively infected and transmitting on this day
153,000 cumulative dead since day one, with 12,960 deaths on this day
1.2 million cumulative recovered since day one
By July 4th, 2020, if no travel restrictions are put in place:
24.3 million actively infected and transmitting on this day
2.16 million cumulative dead since day one, with 183,000 deaths on this day
17.1 million cumulative recovered since day one
Once thousands start dying each week in the United States, it’s going to be increasingly difficult to pretend it’s all some sort of hoax.
While the virus should be a concern for everyone. People should be really concerned for the after effects that are quickly approaching. The economic collapse is virtually inevitable now.
I think I am about done talking to people about this situation. People look at me like I’m a mad man or insane when I try explaining to them just how bad this situation could get. People think that we can just isolate ourselves for two weeks and it’ll be over and life will go back to normal. They are Delusional.
Everything about this situation screams to me life is over as we know it. I know it’s hard to fathom for most people. I enjoy air conditioning, heat in the winter, I enjoy going to the grocery store and buying food. I hope I am wrong. I hope you come back here in a couple weeks and laugh your ass of at me. Enjoy…. But you won’t. People are scared of facing the truth. I understand that. I’ve been called many names over the past few weeks. It’s ok. I feel sorry for those people. They are ignoring the warning signs. A wise man told me recently, “people hoping that this all gets better soon is like a drowning man wishing the oceans would drain to save him.”
It makes me sick to my stomach thinking of what is most likely coming. I pray I am wrong. Perhaps it is best I quit worrying about trying to wake up people to the fact they are running out of time to prepare to survive. Go ahead and laugh at me. The thing is you’ll never be able to apologize to me or other’s who are sounding the alarms if I/we are right and that is ok. I wish you well. I hope you survive. Keep your family safe. I’m done trying to wake you up.
