There are more people being hurt or dying by not going to get surgeries and procedures done when they should than there are people being hurt or
killed from the coronavirus itself. People who are sick and think they have the flu or a cold are not going to the doctor, I surely would not go to
the doctor if I had a cold right now....I could have had coronavirus a couple of times already...well, I will be getting the antibody test when it is
available around here, a hundred nineteen bucks is not that bad. But, I am not going to go to the doctors to get that test, there are too many sick
people in the hospital where my doctor works. It is for my own information, I will share the results with my doctor, but I am not going to pay my
copay with him and then pay for the antibody test.
The country handled this virus wrong, they went overboard. I still believe the initial response until we learned more about this virus was
appropriate, and I do believe we should be making things we need in this country instead of buying those things from foreign suppliers. We can buy
the things we want from China or other countries, but we need to start producing what we need on our own. We have a freezer shortage, seems too many
people decided that we need freezers worldwide now and they are hard to come by now....if we made more of them here for sale here., that would not be
as much of a problem.
Screw the big import states who want us dependent on them, we need to start producing things around the country and do it in an environmental friendly
way. We are causing ill health among the Chinese to make the importers rich. I feel sorry for the Chinese people because we are contributing to
their local air polution and they have to wear masks outside to try to make it so they can breathe. The toxins dumping into their ocean from this
activity is also making it hard for their small fishermen to make a living, they have to get factory ships to fish elsewhere. I have no problem
buying fish that is wild caught with a Chinese label on it.
I have been stating pretty much since I came here that we should be producing what we need here in America to stabalize the economy and supply jobs
for our people. I worked in a foundry, it was not that bad. I worked in a flooring mill, it was not that bad. We do not have to concentrate the
factories in one location and have big factories, the practice of big corporations buying out small companies around the country and closing them down
so they can get bigger shares of the market in their big city is terrible economics, that should be illegal. It happens all the time. Smaller
communities suffer because of this.
