This article is spreading fast.

It sounds like this affects negative results as well, so people who are actually positive are being counted as negative.

It seems like further investigation is in order to see what is causing this.

Oh I'm sure it works both ways. Imagine when drive thrus first started and people abruptly left the line. Everyone's order after them is wrong, but not wrong in the same way.

I'm just posting articles as I stumble across them. A lot of them may appear to cast skepticism of the virus but to me it is the government's handling of such that warrants a closer look.

Prophet, are you referring to the people wearing nazi uniforms and swastikas in Lansing? I just wanted to let you know that was proven to be a lie (even Snopes said so). Those pictures were actually taken from a left wing protest from months ago. I've seen plenty of interviews of Michiganders saying there was no racist tone to the protests. But of course, if there was a few bad apples, the media will surely cover it to smear anyone who values their civil liberties as bigots of some sort.

We should have executed targeted quarantines, not mass quarantines. Treating the epicenter of the virus the same as rural areas 1000 miles away and hours from the nearest airport is illogical, as is treating Alaska the same as NYC. People seem to forget or are unaware of the fact that economic recessions/depressions cause numerous deaths as well (immense increases in depression, mental illness, poverty, homelessness, starvation, drug abuse, suicide, domestic violence and other violent crimes, etc). It must also be kept in mind that we know for a fact that the death numbers are padded and highly inaccurate (to what degree they've been overestimated we may never know). We also know that the raw number of people infected was extremely inaccurate, with some studies (one conducted in LA county) suggesting that the real amount of people infected could be over 50 times more than what has been reported. I haven't paid attention to this figure (and it isn't easy to find), but around 10-15 days ago we had still only tested approximately 1.5% of the US population. Given this, it seems difficult to hold any opinion with utmost confidence.

On the subject of the bill of rights, we saw people's 1st, 2nd, and 5th amendment rights trampled by governors in numerous states. This was not only unnecessary but also sets and dangerous precedent. This country was founded on independence, liberty, and individualism, NOT dependence and collectivism. Giving up one's civil liberties for "the greater good" is a dangerous Marxist philosphy, especially when coupled with the fact that oligarchs control our MSM. "Obey, give up your constitutional rights, or you don't care about people dying" was the atmosphere set in place. History tells us that virtually every totalitarian regime has used tactics like this to slowly control a nation. This is absolutely a cause for concern and showcases a severe blunder in our leadership.

Assembly was banned, protests were banned, gun stores were labeled nonessential, due process went out the window, and in some cases engaging in outdoor activities was banned. Some states passed partisan measures while protests were banned. In other places, masks were required, but you can't concealed carry while wearing a mask, thus concealed carry was banned. And there is more. The governor of Michigan completely overstepped her bounds and I am proud of the protestors for not bending over and accepting tyrannical measures.

It was all very convenient that the response to the virus ended presidential rallies, which are good for Trump and Russian roulette (perhaps with 3 bullets in the cylinder) for Biden. It was also convenient for China that:
1. Virus targets elderly (communist regimes see people who no longer pay taxes as a nuisance to society)
2. US stock market tanks
3. US economic recession
4. Value of US dollar will certainly plummet
5. Negative press for the guy who put Tariffs on China which helps the candidate that is in bed with China (watch "Joe Biden should be very afraid of this video" by Mr Reagan)
6. China gets a "free" look at how America and the modern world respond to a pandemic
7. China gets to see how much influence their media has on the world
8. Depopulation never hurt China's feelings

And more. This whole thing is fishy as hell. With all this and much more that should be taken into consideration, the decision to open the country back up should not be getting the negative coverage it often receives. The governor of Georgia was recently criticized for opening much of the state up, but I believe when this blows over he'll be met with praise (aside from the usual suspects like CNN, who has been caught repeating Chinese propaganda - Tim Poole did a video on this).

I need to get a laptop. Sick of posting from phone.
