Judy, I totally agree with you regarding masks and lockdowns. The problem as I see it is that because there is so much conflicting data on both these issues that governments tend to err on the side of caution and once they have set a plan in action (mask mandatory/lockdowns for all), they cannot reverse track because to do so would be admitting they made a mistake. And that, they cannot manage. I am elderly and find I can only wear a mask for short periods (which studies show is common especially in older adults because they lower the blood oxygen level and I get lightheaded--bad for driving). People seem to accept mask wearing quite well overall probably bc they feel they are contributing to slowing down the virus (if they only knew); but propaganda is more powerful than common sense. As to lockdowns -- yes, absolutely let the healthy out of lockdowns. The problems they cause are greater than the health damage of the virus itself, One day, true stats will come out that deaths caused by lockdowns exceeded deaths by COVID-1984 ( hope you caught the satire) but don't wait for the government to admit to it now--too busy flouting propaganda). Imagine the children and the lockdown effect on them -- some younger ones may never recover socially.

REALFOODCHANNEL.COM - Check out todays video from Prof. Dolores Cahill. Prof. Dolores Cahill explains how people are dying because of the lockdowns, how we are being controlled by Government and Media and how you can build your immune system. Also discusses the use of Hydroxychloroquine and it's success. Prof. Cahill is another expert who is not paid by Government or Pharma and is willing to go into court to fight these lockdowns. She also discusses the use of masks and the dangers. This interview is long and informative. There is so much information available to those who want to be free again. Prof. Cahill continually repeats how important it is to build the immune system through nutrients, Vit. C,D and Zinc. There is no reason that children should wear a mask or not attend school. Flu viruses are serious and we must protect the elderly who have immune issues. The young people will build Herd Immunity. It is time for all of us to throw off the masks, say NO to the lockdowns and start to live our lives again. Please take the time to listen to what Prof. Cahill has to say. My Wish and Prayer for the World is Freedom of Choice as is God Given and not to be manipulated and controlled by Evil. This is not a Medical Crisis but a Political Crisis to Control the Public. It is time to call out the Media and the Governments.

You wouldnt know what a gun mount was if it hit you in the head. Someone obviously needs to teach you some manners. If you are so proud of the US, then why are you living in Panama? I cant stand to see left wing Demonrats like you tearing down this country. What a sackless goof-nut.

Hey snake.....I'll send you a copy of my dd214, then we can get together and "talk this out". We took morons like you behind the #2 gun mount and taught them some manners. No wonder you didn't make your debate team. Every one who opposes you is "gay". Not a very good argument idiot.

@ sphincter observer. Vietnam? I doubt it. They didn't let queers in the military back then. You two observerbobs would have been casualties in those days. Man, this place is worse than Jerry Springer!

Hands in the days of Covid. Went shopping the other day. Temperature checked, alcohol wipes. Used the back of one hand to push the dispenser. Then wiped my hands on my pants. Same ones I had been wearing for 6 days. Picked up cans, onions etc. Put them back if moldy or noticed another brand. Went to the check out. Touched the top side of the checkout counter. Also the CC machine buttons. Gave the packer a tip. Left the store without more alcohol wipes. Not sure what I left with or left behind for others. All the attempts to stop the spread have not produce results by now. You ever wonder why? They could not stop this with flame throwers.

As a Vietnam vet, I get pissed every time this fraudulent punk wraps himself in the flag and claims he loves the military so much. What a load of horseshit.

The USA hospital system was never going to collapse it turned out to be leftist media hype. Even with Democrat governors committing mass murder by filling hundreds of nursing homes with covid patients the system held up well. Quickly Trump deployed hospital ships and built emergency hospitals for fearful and panicked democrat governors. Turns out never needed them. There were plenty of hospital beds, icu and ventilators all along. CNN and leftist media hype. God Bless you President Trump for your love of country.

Now we know where Brown gets his misplaced ideas -Breitbart and its white power followers, I hope he read details of the 50,000 new coronavirus cases in the US, heading to 100,00 daily as the hospital system and the "recovering" economy collapse.

100% correct MHogan. And casual observer, just because you are gay, does not make you casual. Maybe sphincter observer would be more appropriate for you.

These media reports are, I’m convinced, a way to install fear. Human’s worst fear is death and when you fear this, manipulation is easy. You will look to, in this case, the government, to do anything that will prevent your worst fear. So, how far will YOU go to assuage your fear? Lockdowns, masks, social distancing, accept the “new normal”, and finally, the goal of the 1% so they can control and profit — an unsafe vaccine program complete with Covi-pass or like tattoo to verify your compliance — or will you ditch the fear of death and stand for liberty? Know that at the top of the pyramid, as it now exists, are those with power and wealth who want more of it, the part below them is the military state (police, etc) who are there to re-inforce the will of the “elites” and keep the lower group, the largest, general population in line. But, we, the general population can retain liberty only thru rejecting fear, become aware of facts/accept that we’re not being fed 100% truth, and act accordingly to reject the “new normal”.

This is what the Art of the comeback looks like!! President Trump being the great self made businessman that he is has saved America once again. While Panama slips into a 10 year economic depression the USA under the greatest President ever recovers in record time! https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/07/02/the-u-s-economy-added-4-8-million-jobs-in-june-unemployment-fell-to-11-1/

Still think this lockdown is ending anytime soon? Years of gorging on PIO PIO chicken and Chicharron washed down by 2 cases of balboa has put a large percentage of the population as undiagnosed diabetics or insulin resistant with high blood pressure. Luckily many are younger so they don't die from the virus but they require some level of support. The virus is going to keep spreading there is no way to stop it. These daily monsoon downpours just push people into close quarters to avoid getting wet. areas of the interior that have been lucky so far will get their outbreaks also. Herd immunity would be the smart move but then the companies making a vaccine won't get paid. Every person who has acquired immunity is money they don't make. Lock everyone up so that everyone needs to buy a vaccine.
