Are small business owners committing financial suicide?

Monday, March 30, 2020, 5:32 pm | Randy Thomasson

If the always-paid government bureaucracy wanted to kill off capitalism, they’re not wasting this opportunity. For every day, small businesses fail because they “aren’t open.”

Yet if you stay closed like the government wants, you might be committing financial suicide. Ask yourself — how long can you go without income?

Small business owners shouldn’t be overly-afraid of the government. Have you heard of a single business owner being fined for staying fully open during the virus scare? I haven’t. And so what if you’re fined? Wouldn’t a couple hundred dollars be a small price to pay compared to all the value you’ll receive by staying open?

And consider the various “bugs” that can be on every public door handle — whether it’s coronavirus, the flu, stomach flu, strep throat, pink eye, or the common cold. Which is why small business owners who are “open for business” should exercise (and require from their customers) an improved level of good hygiene.

What’s more, the “cure” for COVID-19 might already be here. On Sunday, the FDA approved the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine sulfate. Millions of doses are being donated to the nation’s hospitals right now. 

Is the COVID-19 lockdown overkill? One decade ago, America had another epidemic. But the 2009-2010 swine flu occurred when there was a Democrat in the White House, who the Big Media protected, and the opposition party Republicans did not politicize the virus. 

The swine flu’s death toll was higher than (or some might argue, similar to) COVID-19. “According to the CDC from April 2009 to April 2010 there were about 60.8 million cases of the swine flu with 12,469 deaths in the United States. Unlike COVID-19, swine flu targeted the younger population, who health officials said had little to no existing immunity.” Source

Yet now we have a Republican president, who the Big Media hates, and who the opposition party Democrats seem to blame for everything. They unsuccessfully tried to oust him twice. Is it the Big Media’s turn to defeat Trump by eliminating his booming economy?

We are now at a point where the cure is worse than the disease. As R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. wrote a week ago: “… we need not destroy our economy over this pandemic …The state we had arrived at by last weekend was explained cogently by Bob Luddy, the CEO and founder of CaptiveAire, in The American Spectator on Monday. He wrote: “Our leaders are creating an economic crisis and a major national security risk with limited data. The cure is far worse than any perceived impact by COVID-19.”

For small business owners, and workers who’ve been laid off without pay, the big question is how much more financial bleeding can you stand? Big stores like Wal-Mart and Target haven’t closed. So why must you?

For the sake of your constitutional rights, your God-given ownership rights, your family, and your in-born need to succeed, I encourage you to be “open for business,” along with taking wise steps of good hygiene. Don’t let the establishment destroy your livelihood!

“You shall not steal … You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Should you panic over the China virus?

For the sake of all the people in the United States of America, and especially California, I’m annoyed that the Liberal Left’s scare tactics have made it hard to buy toilet paper.

As the China virus scare has turned into a Big-Media-induced panic, people are hoarding disinfectant, bottled water, meat, toilet paper, and more. Because most people are more afraid of what they don’t understand.

Will you think with me? Have you wondered why the Big Media and Democrat politicians are saying don’t gather at large events and don’t even go into a church building?

The ruling Democrats say it’s because you have to protect yourself from the coronavirus (COVID-19). Yet the evidence shows the threat is largely to the elderly and infirmed. As honest investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson reported: “Early American fatalities of the coronavirus are mostly elderly or suffering from health issues.” (As of March 22, the number of U.S. deaths attributed to the COVID-19 virus has risen to 414.)

In contrast, the swine flu from China in 2009-2010 affected U.S. children, young adults, and pregnant mothers the most. But back then, a Democrat named Barack Obama was in the White House, and the Big Media never induced a national panic as they’re doing today.

And what about the annual flu season from October through March each year? Even young children die from the flu, but no kids under 10, anywhere, have died from COVID-19.

In the U.S., the CDC reports that 22,000 to 52,000 Americans have died this flu season. Compare this to the relatively small number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — virtually all elderly persons with “underlying health conditions” (and no young children have died). Yet regular flu strains have killed infants.

As for COVID-19’s mortality (fatality) rate, it’s not 3.4% as the World Health Organization previously reported. It’s much more telling when the WHO said, “Most people will have mild disease and get better without needing any special care.”

As the virus traveled to the U.S., the picture on our own soil has become more clear. As the Washington Post reported on March 6, “U.S. health officials on Thursday briefed lawmakers in Congress and said they believe the case fatality rate in this country will most likely be in the range of 0.1 to 1.0 percent.”

The concern is the COVID-19 virus is spreading faster than most viruses we know, and its mortality (death) rate is higher that common flu, which has U.S. mortality rate of 0.095%, just under 0.1%. (China’s death rate was likely higher because 50% of China men are regular smokers). Yet, for anyone who’s elderly, sickly, or immunocompromised, if you are “taken down” by COVID-19, hospitals in the U.S. are quickly becoming equipped to apply life-saving techniques.

So this doesn’t merit sending the general public into a panic. In the U.S., COVID-19 has only killed sickly elderly persons — those with lung disease, heart disease, or diabetes. As CNN reported, of the Americans who died from COVID-19, “most of them were 60 years and older,” “many lived in nursing homes and other facilities,” and “many had other health problems.”

Here’s what we can all do. To protect yourself against most contagious infections (beginning with the common cold), you have to practice good hygiene by frequently washing your hands, not touching your face, and wearing gloves or using other methods to avoid picking up “ick” from a door handle. And, of course, take your vitamins (including Vitamin D) and supplements, get your daily sunshine (the best Vitamin D3), and try to get adequate sleep. You know the drill.

Given what we know, most people have less chance of their health being harmed by COVID-19 than by the regular flu or swine flu. But the Big Media and the “never let a crisis go to waste” Democrat politicians aren’t telling you that, are they?

California’s rulers are killing innocent people

Friday, December 6, 2019, 11:47 pm | Randy Thomasson

The Liberal Left’s Democrat-controlled state government is killing innocent Californians.

Perhaps the last remaining independent state official, State Auditor Elaine Howle, reports that three county governments and the Governor’s office (Democrat Jerry Brown, followed by Democrat Gavin Newsom) were LAX (similar to “lackadaisical”) by NOT preparing for “monster” fires and NOT effectively evacuating people (some who burned inside their cars on clogged roads).

Amazingly, Howle uses the word “failed” in describing the State’s preparation for and response to wildfires, and even reports the consequences of not requiring all Californians to learn English (so non-English speakers didn’t understand evacuation instructions). What an indictment of your Democrat rulers.

Of course, the story behind the story, and the facts that the Liberal Left and Big Media are hiding from you, is that there are nearly 150 million dead trees and countless millions of acres of dead underbrush that the Democrat rulers of California refuse to remove. So the Democrat politicians who bow down to environmental wackos threaten and kill Californians instead. Truly, Democrat politicians’ policies regard trees and weeds as more valuable than people created in the image of God, which is hateful and wrong and a terrible sin.

Also, based on the evidence and the cause and effect of this whole matter, here’s a good question:

Should non-thinking Democrat voters be called “Dumbocrats”?

The Los Angeles Times reported on the failure of California’s Democrat voters to critically think:

“Pummeled by fires, drought and floods, California’s Democratic primary voters put fighting climate change at the top of their list of issues for the next president to tackle. Nearly half of likely Democratic primary voters call the issue the No. 1 priority for the next president, according to a new statewide poll conducted by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies for the Los Angeles Times.”

But get this — most Democrats never question what they’re told, and thus never study how the main influence of little climate changes on Planet Earth are from fluctuations in the Sun (Sol), which we revolve around by design: https://tinyurl.com/w855fab

And most Democrats never think of the logic of how pouring gasoline on a fire is dangerous, foolish, and wrong. But that’s figuratively what the Democrat rulers of California are doing. By not thinning live trees and bushes and not clearing out dead trees and underbrush, they are providing very combustible fodder to sparks that fly.

As I reported earlier, a child can understand how a lighted match can start a small fire. Why can’t the ruling Democrats in Sacramento? Oh, they understand. They just aren’t willing to go against their environmental group pimps, who value trees and weeds over people’s lives and property.
