They didn’t care because after it is announced that Trump won re-election the left has already has smuggled into our country armed terrorists that will try to create Kaos. I encourage everyone to welcome them by exercising your second amendment rights. We The People wish to show you what lies in your near future: or maybe you prefer the music :


    I’m keeping real this virus isn’t something to ignore. This time could be worse but we can make it safer by keeping our distance from large gatherings and crowded restaurants. People think we’ll I’m mostly home so I’ll be safe but then they invite over 20 people. This time it could be worse because it’s the cold season it brings on other colds and flues making the immune system weaker allowing the body to catch easily. Then people happen to drink excessively during the holidays that’s another blow to the immune system, glass or two of wine a day can actually have amazing health benefits including boosting your immune system. Does the cold weather help slow the virus, problem as it’s being released into cold conditions but once it’s in the body then there’s no promising how fast it’s going to take off. I think the cold weather will paralyze it in the air so what but don’t get to close either way. What worries me here is this, now that it’s cold season everyone is going to be in doors cramming themselves together for every time they meet up, no more outside gatherings nor meet ups and to me it’s like one big hospital because everyone is inside meeting up. I’ve noticed cold places like Alaska and Russia there’s not much covid or is there? That’s because bacteria and viruses don’t linger on in cold conditions as strong as in warmer weather. So like I said the cold weather might help the lingering of the virus outside but not so much us, another thing our bodies aren’t used to cold temperatures so when our cold season’s start it’s a blow to our body’s causing respiratory infections ranging from infants to the elderly causing the covid virus to really attack us harder. When the virus hit was it during cold weather? I think this is the first time so we don’t really know how it’s going to play out, could go good or bad, I’m thinking both. Keep the immune system strong and keep a eye on a raspy voice it’s either dropping or going pro advanced. My voice is naturally raspy so it’s difficult to tell but you can tell by waking up with to many temporary sore throat’s. Vitamin C is good but to much makes immune system pro advanced then what happens it does the opposite starts to decline. Stay at around 200 mg a day no more, the body can’t utilize more than 200 or 500 mg a day anyways it’ll flush it out but it can still effect your immune system to rise to much, I’d take 100 mg a day just to keep it idling smooth especially if you eat vegetables and fruits already. Rely on that glass of red wine, doesn’t need to be expensive just plain red wine. Red wine preserves you. Antioxidants preserve you. Wine is pure antioxidants. Open up the vessel’s keep them cells alive. Just eating one piece of salmon once a week with a glass of red wine that’s four times in a month you’ll live a long healthy life. It keeps that blood flowing and inflammation cells down eventually blocking the inflammation enzyme similar to aspirin, garlic is good too but not to much leave room for that salmon wild ( omegas3’s) not farm and wine, you don’t want your blood to thin. After a while when you work out you’ll see less fatigue and soreness. Keep consistent. Once a week. But for now get that glass of wine a day. Eat your regular foods you like but get these in between. Again be safe everyone

  21. Cheryl Carlson says

    It's not burn out these nurses are grappling with but the moral injury that does indeed cause PTSD. It is the demand to be perfect when the deck is stacked against you, going home and seeing terror in family's eyes when the wailing wakes you up from the nightmare you just lived, pounding heart all the time, aching body, fear of everything, feeling responsible for everything then being pressured to work " a few more hours" "one more shift". This has been building for 10 yrs now. If you want a nurse to be there check out National Nurses united, find ways to support us in the fight that administration doesn't want us to do. Know that nursing home nurses are forbidden to be part of unions and where there are no state mandated ratios administration can and has forced 20 hr shifts with 55 patients and that was in 2016!!! Getting healthcare fixed is going to take absolutely everyone demanding better.

  22. M B says

    We have a healthcare system that’s worse than; India, Brazil and even Mexico on fighting covid.

    Dr. Judy Mikovits was a research Director of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis research organization Whittemore Peterson Institute (WPI) from 2006-2011, Dr. Judy Mikovits led a research effort that reported in 2009 that a retrovirus known as Xenotropic Murine Leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) contaminated monkey, mice cells and human viruses in vaccines was associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and may have had a causal role.

    In 1980, Dr. Judy Mikovits was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with a specialization in biology at the University of Virginia. After graduation, she went to the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, Maryland, where she developed purification methods for Interferon alpha.

    Dr. Judy Mikovits has gained attention on social media for promoting her ideas about the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. She does not believe that a vaccine is needed to prevent COVID-19, and claims that the coronavirus was “caused by a bad strain of flu vaccine that was circulating between 2013 and 2015“. She also claimed masks will “activate” the virus and reinfect a mask-wearer over and over.

    One such circulating video gained notoriety in May 2020. Titled Plandemic Part 1, the film is a half-hour long documentary-styled interview of Dr. Judy Mikovits’s perspective on the accusations thrown upon her by the WPI. YouTube has removed this video number of times, citing community guidelines.

    At some point I think people who supported Trump will be organizing bonfires to burn their red MAGA hats in a ceremony of the repudiation of Donald Trump.

    One of the specified whistleblowers,  “machines installed in each county are pre-configured so that the expected turnout and two-pool results are synchronized.  For example, Biden received 50.9%, Trump 48.1%, and other candidates 1%.  In the process, you make a date as if there is contention and make people trustworthy.  In fact, it doesn't matter whether you voted for Mickey Mouse or who you voted for, because the software tells you what you voted for, not you.  The result is determined by the software.”  Please don't be fooled to believe CNN and they knew it.  Covid doesn't scare us, but these corrupted people in America.
