The Covid-19, a corona virus unknown until present, has taken up all the news of late. As well it should.
The human race and our survival is suddenly at stake. Our rights are suppressed. Our freedoms, suppressed. Some states are attempting to introduce more laws against guns, gun makers, ammo, restrictions on guns and on people owning those things.
Several groups, including the III% United Patriots – or 3UP, have been clamoring for “action” against the government apparently. Some of those people have threatened force “if all the boxes are checked”, including quarantine, etc.
This Patriot believes that, while we certainly need to maintain our rights, and stand up for them, and make it CLEAR to any local and state government that attempting to restrict our Freedoms is a no-go, also believes that at least we should also use common sense, and our God Given Talents at understanding what is really happening.
A) This virus is highly suspected to have been manufactured right there in Wuhan, China, where there is certainly a bioweapons lab. SUSPECTED is a strong word. It means we have intelligence on this from somewhere. We have arrested several in connection with stealing information, lying about it, and attempting to smuggle vials out of the country. All of them are connected to the Chinese government, one is a spy/military agent, a second a smuggler, and a third, American biomedical professor from Harvard, who, spent time in China and was being paid by the Chinese and lied about it.
B) The virus was already “floating around” in places and it hit Italy around the same time, but with more virility than it did in Wuhan. Wuhan, and China put the kabosh on it quickly, locking people up, dragging them out and into the street, putting them in sealed, metal boxes and taking them to God Knows Where. China, rapidly got the virus under control – because they are communists, and they will just kill anyone who doesn’t comply.
C) Italy isn’t so lucky. They are number one on the infected/dead lists. Italy also has a huge tourism industry, and more Chinese visit Italy than any other country. Thus, it is not surprising, Italy caught the brunt of the disease, and they waited too long to take extreme measures.
D) Some of us believe the Chinese hid the details of this virus for up to thirty days before releasing information to the world, and it was an attempt to spread, rather than confine this disease.
E) Novel Corona Virus is actually called “2019 nCoV”, Scientists gave the strain an interim name of 2019-nCoV, accounting for the year of discovery, its status as a “novel” virus, and its family name (CoV). The new designation, while different, represents the same information. I’ll just call it “The Chinese Virus” because it pisses off the Left, and everyone is claiming it is “Racist”. In the past, diseases, foods, and many other things have been named for regions from which they originated. I’ll stick to the “Old Ways”.
F) I believe this “Chinese Virus” was in fact a bioweapon designed specifically to attack humans, remain undetected for several days while carriers (the people infected) passed it on to many more people. No other virus does this. You get an infection, you start getting symptoms and are contagious. This one is different, thus, man made. It was designed to be passed rapidly and on a 1:2 or 1:5 basis. Flu and cold virus have a near 1:1. You get it it, you pass it to one other. When you pass it on a 1:2 factor, then they do the same, the mathematics tell you we’re in trouble.
G) Simple math. I have the virus, and pass it to two, so we have 2 people, who pass to two more. That is 2^2 (or 2 to the second power, four). If this happens each day for 30 days, each of the persons passing to two more people, the total number of infected becomes: 1073741824 in just 30 days. In two months, or 60 days that number jumps to 1.152921505×10¹⁸ or 115,292,150,500,000,000 – more people than live on Planet Earth.
H) We assume that only two are infected from each person. We assume it goes unchecked for 60 days. We assume everyone can catch it. We assume no one is doing anything to stop it. Obviously, we are, as are the people in other countries. The problem arises though, that some are being completely overwhelmed, like Italy. There are only so many hospital beds.
I) Given the fact this disease causes pneumonia-like respiratory problems and many (but not all) of the patients require at the peak of the disease, artificial breathing assistance from respirators (requiring intubation-the process of putting a tube over ones trachea tube and machine-breathing for them) we will see a time when hospital beds run out, there will be not enough respirators, and not enough medical professionals to assist the ill. People will simply die from lack of care. The death toll will increase dramatically.
Americans are used to freedoms, they are used to coming and going as they wish, and it’s a good freedom, it should NEVER be willingly given up.
HOWEVER, this is the entire human race we’re talking about here, and the whole “social distacing” thing they’ve come up with is a way to prevent us all from coming in to direct contact with others and thereby spreading the disease.
This isn’t about over reaching governments stopping people from having meetings.
This is about the survival of the entire human race at this point.
So… it’s not about 2A or not 2A; it is about “To Be, or Not to Be…”
Stay home. Don’t spread this disease. Don’t come in contact with others. Give it a few days.
The economy IS going to suffer for a time. We’re going to go without certain things, for a time. Life is GOING to be tough for a time – at least for the non-Preppers out there.
We do not have the ability to clone humans yet. Pray we don’t have to do that, or, we become extinct because of lack of common sense on this planet. Go home, stay there, watch television or better yet, turn it off and spend time with your loved ones.
Tomorrow is not promised, friends.
Survival is imperative, not socially drinking with your friends tonight.
