    Everyone on here that thinks this is just the flu I have a question for you. Why do you think all of these countries are shutting down when to do so economically devastate them and have repercussions on the rest of the world? Do you think they are doing this because it’s just the flu? Have you ever seen anything like this before in your lifetime? Isn’t there a red flag here somewhere for you that says maybe it’s not just the flu?

    Trump has done great things. So he said some dumb things. Impeach him – that is what the left does, that is what the left is good at, lunacy. Left is far worse than some of the dumb things Trump said.
    Anyway, as a general idea, it is not totally bad, ie maybe there could have been some advantages with the regular flue vaccine against covid19.
    Maybe Trump is playing a deeper game to eventually show up the left.

    Please join this world prayer every Sunday regardless of faith, race, beliefs, and where you are…we're all children of God, in this together. For the planet and our children…:check out the details in this short video, and pass it on: https://suprememastertv.com/en1/v/85783840493.html Don’t like to preach but it’s what the prophets down the ages say: disasters are often the result of cumulative collective wrong actions, such as killing – because of the negative energy that builds up, though invisible. Only another more powerful energy can overcome it, though equally invisible, called love. That's why collective positive thoughts and kind actions work – as in group prayer. (Please don’t say it’s not scientific – one can easily point at Buddha or Jesus and say prove your god-nature talk, but it’s just a higher science that’s beyond the mind so can only be proven by a higher faculty, called enlightened consciousness) A personal plea: I wrote a message of a similar nature on another site the other day and there was a negative response, like a smear… I felt rather bad, like I had done him/her wrong. This is why: The law of cause and effect is in every major scripture. The founders of these religions were not understood or treated nicely, because the majority of the people in their times may have been good people, but had certain faiths or beliefs that they adhered to. The prophet may have come with the same message in a different packaging, but were invariably persecuted. Since the highest purpose of humans being is self-knowledge, those who had harmed these Masters or spoken against them faced pretty serious retributions by hindering others from learning from these high-level beings through their words or actions. Unless one has attained to full knowledge and is capable of infallible judgement of who the real Master is, it is better to refrain from saying anything based on the mind or on impulse. It’s just not worth it. If one has already done so without full-knowledge or thorough research (which shouldn’t be too hard in this day and age), the only salvation is to repent and do good. Have no preconceptions…check it out…

    Lol, the point is that the flu kills thousands of people every year and nobody bats an eye. If the media did what they are doing right now, every time the flu season came, the world would have grinded to a halt a long time ago and never recovered. The coronavirus is not wiping out healthy people in record numbers. It is killing 80 year olds (like the flu). And even the flu kills healthy people every year. We are talking about statistics and I think it's fair to say that nobody on MSNBC should be talking about any sort of math at all.

Good people have good things happen to them, that's why President Trump and the people that voted for him always have good things happening to them. It's hard for us to understand why you are being this mean to Trump, always trying to degrade and demean him. If you would open your eyes, you would see that the more you try to hurt him, the double more you are hurting yourselves (Democrats). Every attempt you have made has failed. The more you try, the worse it's getting for you. If you would only try to work with Trump, the United States could be so much better…
