About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Covid-19 deaths are accelerating, WHO warns, as world records most cases ever in a single week

Source: CNN

(CNN) -- Covid-19 infections have been rising at an alarming rate for eight consecutive weeks, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned, as the virus sweeps unabated through hotspots in several corners of the globe.

More than 5.2 million new cases were recorded last week -- the most in a single week since the pandemic began -- WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news briefing in Geneva on Monday.

Deaths also increased for the fifth straight week, he said, with the pandemic now officially claiming more than 3 million lives.

And Tedros warned that the pace of the pandemic is accelerating, even as some countries tout their own improved vaccination programs.

I hate wearing a mask and plastic gloves all the time when I go out..I also hate staying at home most of
the time and spending a lot of time cleaning the house and sorting out stuff, and putting the stuff over here and over there. Then I throw out the "stuff" later..I also hate not seeing my friends and family in person and spending so much time on the phone..I also hate being at home alone, and not having anyone over for any reason.

.But.... I want you to know this: I hate being in the hospital on a breathing tube...much more..I've been there and done that, and will avoid that as much as possible.

If Founding Fathers Knew The Horror of Gun Violence in the Future,..No 2nd Amendment.....

Or worded in a totally different way. These people who founded this country and created the U.S.
Constitution were very smart. While they may have imagined a larger country, they could not
imagine that gun ownership would cause the problems that it presently cause. And the availability
of guns is what it is. It is my deepest opinion, that if they knew what gun ownership is causing today, no 2nd Amendment at all, or something totally different to control gun ownership.
...Remember, we had won the Revolutionary War about 10 years earlier, gun ownership was part of
winning that war. The thought may have been: "If we need to fight again, we need everyone to be
prepared for the next war."
...I doubt that anyone could look into the future and see young kid buying a automatic weapon and shooting up a number of people, since there were no automatic weapons back then. Also, gun ownership was a different
kind of deal back then. (No police, all kinds of animals at loose, fear of Native Americans, and so on)

3.Hand Guns become illegal after a certain date far into the future..

4.Federal program to register rifles and other similar weapons

You Can't Change The Past....

...That one is simple and easy to understand..But we want to change the past, because it hurt us and
made us feel bad. (and much worse)...I have never been able to "Change The Past" ..and neither has
my HP.

... That is why acceptance is so important. We can learn from the past, and when that situation
comes again, we can do something different, but no matter how much we try, we cannot change the
past...That one seems easy to accept, but many of us think we can change it, but we can't.

...You think that I have got that one by now, but...Not totally, just ..."One Day At A Time"..or
"One Moment At A Time"

A prediction: Joe Biden will do something significant about gun control

...I don't know when or how , but Joe Biden cares about people, and cares about the U.S.A. and I believe that he will do something about gun control. Also, what he does will be somewhat effective in controlling this awful out of control problem. Joe knows the ropes and knows how congress works, so whatever he proposes will take time, because Joe will want that proposal to be passed by congress.

But I do believe that he will do something significant because he deeply cares about people in the U.S.A. This last sentence is why Joe will be successful. Yes, this will take time, but I do think this gun control issue will be dealt with in an effective way...This is the essence of Joe Biden.

Mask Wearing in Illinois..Everyone does it, at least at the foodstore I went to today.

...I left the Jewel in the suburb of Skokie about an hour and a half ago.. Everyone wore a mask. There
is a sign upon entering that says, "Masks are required to enter" All employees had masks, children
had masks and comers and goers had them. (Yes, I had one too, double mask & gloves)..This is not a
game, and people who don't wear them are not only stupid but don't really care about their own health.
...Right now in the last year and 2 months..(is that correct?) in the time that Covid 19 has been around
over 500,000 have died...that is 14 times the number killed in auto accident.. To prevent the disease
from spreading, you wear a mask...all the time you are somewhere with strangers...
....Is wearing a mask that much more difficult than wearing a seatbelt? How hard is it to put on a seatbelt?
You didn't know this, but from research....55,000 were killed before seat belts became "The Law".
.Now even though there are twice the number of cars...35,000 are killed...40 percent less..
....How difficult is wearing a mask if wearing one saves your life?..Think about it...& pass it on to
those who do not wear masks.. I do guess that everyone puts on a seatbelt when you get into the car...
Is that correct?
