GERM-A-FOBIA: Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

As I watch all the grown adults out there sheltering in place, wearing a mask, and cowering in fear for their lives, the only thing that compares to it is the Keystone Cops! --Al Colombo

Sitting in my office on this fine Saturday morning, I've been pondering all the strange sights I've encountered since March. Grown men and women wearing masks, cowering in their homes, deathly afraid of a mortality rate of 1% to 3% (depending on which source you quote).

Sadly, they're willing to sacrifice income and their very means of sustenance to assure their own life and the lives of others. Even worse yet, all of Society's Children are forced to wear them as well--thus taking on the germafob mentality of their Elders.

All of this puts me in mind of a famous historical event that took place during the founding of our nation.
"Give me liberty, or give me death!" is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775,[1] at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia.

Henry is credited with having swung the balance in convincing the convention to pass a resolution delivering Virginian troops for the Revolutionary War. Among the delegates to the convention were future U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. (click here)

The very idea of cowering in our homes because of something so small that you can't see it is frightening because we're up against an invisible enemy that cannot be discerned. And the worst part of all this is, for the very first time in this nation's 200+ year history, our own state governments are mandating this lock-downs. Again, I hear Patrick Henry as he stands during the convention, demanding that citizens wake up, stand up and be brave.
In March of 1775, the Second Virginia Convention met at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia, to discuss the state’s strategy against the British. It was here that Patrick Henry delivered his most famous speech, ending with the quote, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” (click here)

Another sad note of realization is that today's children probably don't even recognize this famous saying, the man, or the reason why he said it. How could they? Their teachers are routinely dialing U.S. History out of their educational curriculum.

So what's the answer to all this? Is there truly a risk of dying from COVID-19?

Yes, there is a risk, for those who are old, those who have pre-existing health conditions. Those who follow my work already knows what I'm going to say next: "Protect those who are vulnerable and let the rest of the world go on living!"

In the coming days and weeks, I'll be posting information that will demonstrate how ridiculous this "sheltering in place" really is. Whether those of you who believe it's the right thing to do believe the experts and professionals is up to you.

Here's a good example: Aid Groups Call for Worldwide COVID-19 Bailout Amid Fears of Mass Hunger:

"As many as 12,000 people could die every day from COVID-linked hunger, which is more than those dying daily from the virus itself,” warns Oxfam America President Abby Maxman. Written by Alan Macleod (click here)
