Corona factoids.

Unread post by capt.dan » March 13th, 2020, 2:22 pm

Does anybody know that in 2009 on April 26th, Obama declared the Swine Flu a "Public Concern" and the Dow dropped 51 points. 4 days later it gained 140. On June 11th 2009, the W.H.O. declares the swine Flu a pandemic. The very next day June 12th, the Dow gains 28 points. On Saturday October 24th 2009, Obama finally declares Swine Flu a National Emergency. That next Monday the Dow drops 100 points. Then 2 weeks later gains over 300 and tops 10,000 for the first time. 61 Million Americans eventually catch the Swine Flu. 12,469 in America die from it. 574,000 die from it world wide. We have 14 deaths in America as of yesterday 3/12/20. Back in 2009 there were no shut downs of any American or national Sports venues or events. No banning of any gatherings of over 500 people. No rush on hand disinfectants, toilet paper or Grocery supplies. In fact how many of you even remember any of these facts I've posted at all. I'm not trying to make slight the repercussions of this virus. But scaring people like this is doing several bad things. And half of the permanent mental and business harm purposely being done IMHO is by the media, using all the publics viewable, hearable and internet information outlets. And given what we've all witnessed them try to do to our country and Mr. Trump since he became President, I fear and see this virus will be used as much politically to cause the most real harm to Him, our country and its people to change its political hearts and minds, then the virus itself actual physically will.
Not everyone will agree with, understand you, like you, appreciate your character, personality or politics. Not even a few benefiting from your knowledge and/or generosity. But stay true to your beliefs and convictions.

Well said. Too bad that is where we are politically. The media IS an enemy of our Republic.
