    This is harsh. What are you guys planning to do? See why you should have been more interested when they disarmed you?

    And some great advice from our public servants at the CDC: Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings | CDC

    Mental Health
    Consideration: Ensure mental health and psychosocial support*,23 structures are in place to address increased stress and anxiety.

    Explanation: Additional stress and worry are common during any epidemic and may be more pronounced with COVID-19 due to the novelty of the disease and increased fear of infection, increased childcare responsibilities due to school closures, and loss of livelihoods. Thus, in addition to the risk of stigmatization and feeling of isolation, this shielding approach may have an important psychological impact and may lead to significant emotional distress, exacerbate existing mental illness or contribute to anxiety, depression, helplessness, grief, substance abuse, or thoughts of suicide among those who are separated or have been left behind. Shielded individuals with concurrent severe mental health conditions should not be left alone. There must be a caregiver allocated to them to prevent further protection risks such as neglect and abuse.
    And let's keep the data in mind:

    In the US, the Deadly Covid-19 Pandemic has killed 251,715 out of a population of 328,239,523, for a DC19 of 0.0767%. In 2018, there were a total of 2,839,205 deaths in the US (for some reason, 2019 is not available yet).

    In the UK, the Deadly COVID-19 Pandemic has killed 53,775 out of a population of 67,866,000, for a DC19 of 0.079%. In 2018, there were a total of 541,589 deaths in England and Wales.

    In Germany, The Deadly COVID-19 Pandemic has killed 13662 people out of a population of 83,166,700, for a DC19 (deaths from COVID-19) of 0.0164%. In 2019, there were a total of 939,536 deaths in Germany.

    In Australia, the Deadly COVID-19 Pandemic has killed 907 people out of a population of 25,699,400, for a DC19 of 0.003529%. In 2019, there were a total of 169,301 deaths in Australia.

    And please remember that anybody who falls off a ladder or gets killed in a car wreck that tests positive for the Deadly COVID-19 Virus appears in the first number, so that the real percentage is lower.

    Isn't it interesting that this year, for the first time, we have been encouraged to stop the spread of the virus to "save lives" when the seasonal flu kills people at approximately the same rate, and has in the past killed many more, and nobody ever sold us a flu shot as "saving lives." People get sick. They always have. The flu makes you sick. COVID-19 makes you sick. Sometimes, although not often, sick people die. It has always been this way. It will continue to be this way, no matter how much control people give the government over our lives. Stop being afraid, and remember what you already know to be true.

    Agreed. Why would the group of people who benefit from election fraud have any interest in making them more honest?

    It seems like it's a similar situation to try and get pass term limit legislation. Why would someone who's spent all that time and effort winning a Senate or House seat place a limit on their own time in office?

    No BS, I think this is the hard part for many..... They don't know how to. They desperately want to, but they're "stuck."

    I know many who would love to stop being afraid, most of whom aren't generally anxious, worried, "scared" individuals. The constant noise of this mess has transformed/paralyzed them. It truly sucks.

    I should be terrified at age 70. But I'm not. It is not that difficult to overcome the chattering classes of politicians and their sirens on the rocks we call the media. Refuse to participate in the madness where and when you can. Push back where and when you can. Remember you have a spine.

    Doesn't sound like we're too far behind that here in the US. The Biden team just went public with their "gun safety" plan today and was broadcast on the morning news on the radio here - forced buyback or registration of all semi-auto weapons and magazines. It's no longer a hidden page on the Biden for president website - Joe Biden's Plan to End Gun Violence | Joe Biden for President

    Is that the reason, why Powell was "removed"? I don't get it. Is she crazy or is she onto something?

    This is an important distinction. The Australians decided to disarm. He will not disarm American society, and if he pushes it too hard, the outcome will be messy for his group of criminal accomplices.

    The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic" - Sidney Powell, regarding the "clarification" that she is independent of Trump's team.

    She's going after Republicans as well as Democrats. Trump is the GOP head so he has to distance himself from The Kraken. Bad optics.

    This shit doesn't even work in Croatia, and guns are illegal here, we just have a bunch of them left over from the war we fought 25 years ago. It will for sure not work in the US.
