    It has nothing to do with the Corona virus. People were shunning you long before the lockdown. :rolleyes:

    And it appears that with 45,186 UNOPENED messages that he is shunning a LOT of people.

    Maybe he thinks that by not opening those messages he will avoid the CV.

    Oh boy, is the New England Journal of Medicine in trouble now. This renowned, scientific journal is not following the fake news narrative and is, instead, relying on science in its study of Covid-19. Here is a headline and link from Friday:

    https://fromrome.info/2020/03/27/new-england-journal-of-medicine-covid-19-may-be-no-more-lethal-than-the-common-winter-flu/

    NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE: COVID-19 MAY BE NO MORE LETHAL THAN THE COMMON WINTER FLU

    What a surprise! :rolleyes:

    Keep in mind, all of this hysteria in the US (and probably elsewhere) has been a cynical attempt by the Left and their propaganda wing (fake news) to try to damage Trump's re-election. Of course, just like the Russian, Ukraine and other hoaxes, this has totally backfired on them as Trump's popularity is at its highest level ever and Sleepy Joe Biden is getting no attention whatsoever (actually a good thing that his dementia is not on display daily.) In a few years, there will be multiple books on Trump's PR mastery when it comes to defeating a formerly invincible propaganda machine that is now known as the fake news industry.

    That said, we are having a BOGO special sale on our Super Deluxe Tinfoil Hats for the folks who have the ability to see past the actual science and understand that Covid-19 is a threat to civilization, itself. Come out of your hermetically sealed bunkers to buy one and get the second one free!

    I only realised lately that even the mask had two sides - one side is the filter and the other side isn't. You basically wear the filter side in if you are sick and not wanting to infect someone or the filter side out if you are fine and preventing anything from getting in.

    However the general consensus is that people shouldn't wear them as they do not do much in terms of prevention. Dont know whom to believe these days!

    May be a retraction on the horizon...

    I've been wondering about the lack of news coverage on the election campaign. Maybe the media doesn't believe Trump can outsmart them and still rely on the virus to bring him down somehow.

    One thing I found out yesterday. I ventured out to the grocery and drug store and wore an N95 and disposable sanitary gloves. First time I wore a mask.

    It was very interesting. I quickly noticed that when people entered the aisle I was in most of them took one look at me, turned around, and left the aisle.

    My conclusion is that even though those masks may not protect the wearer by filtering out the virus they do protect the wearer by enforcing social distancing.

    I'm eternally looking for that silver lining...

    I feel your pain, when I enter the store wearing my tinfoil hat with the toilet paper dispenser on top some people actually have the sheer gall to laugh at me! What is wrong with these people? :mad:

    @Spoiltdiva they are just envious of you and probably unaware that we still have plenty in stock.

    @JoeSpirit social isolation can be a good thing when you are in the toilet paper aisle!

    It is because the Swamp, the Left, and the Fake News Media recognize that Sleepy Joe is a gaffe-machine and clearly demonstrating signs of dementia when he speaks. These folks are actually not very bright, just power-hungry, and they do not have any history or previous playbook for what is happening right now in this election campaign. So, they know not what to do right now and better to focus on the virus story, even though it is actually helping Trump. Funny to watch them squirm a bit right now as they realize that nothing is working for them. I think that some of them have already given up hope for November.

    Here is something to add to your historical perspective on the very serious con game that is being played right now by the Swamp, the Left, and the Fake News Media:

    H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu) April 2009 - 2010

    60,800,000 Americans Infected
    274,304 Americans Hospitalized
    12,649 American Deaths

    Remember April 2009 - April 2010?

    - No school closings
    - No shelter-in-place
    - No mandatory business closings
    - No 24/7 panic porn from fake news

    What was the difference? Ah, Obama was president then! Nothing to see then folks, just move along. Now, however, it is a world-stopping crisis because Trump Bad.

    This is another case of infectious diseases that have spilled over to people in areas undergoing rapid forest clearing. A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that deforestation creates the conditions for diseases to spread to people.

    I would recommend our Deluxe Organic Tinfoil Hat for this situation. It not only prevents infection by coronavirus, but also reduces your carbon footprint.

    At yesterdays Whitehouse briefing V.P. Pence lambasted people who have been hoarding tinfoil hats. Now it is true that I own 34 tinfoil hats, but I have not been hoarding! They have all been gifts, can I help it if people give me the hats?:oops:

    President Trump has inacted a war measures act and has ordered GM to mass produce the tinfoil hats. This ought to take some strain off the high demand. We the tax payers bailed out GM back in 2008, it's the least they can do to pay us back.

    PUMP OUT THOSE TINFOIL HATS!
