How do you like being upside down?

How do you like being upside down?

The world we live in is absolutely turned upside down. I do NOT understand why it is so hard for people to see this.  But they have been systematically brainwashed with terror. They fear for their lives, literally.  These people often feel that a diagnosis of Covid means a death sentence. I am sorry for them, but at a loss about how to help. Even Bill Mahr https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/bill-maher-democrats-misinformed-coronavirus was shocked at the political divide when it comes to ideas about the virus. He discovered that Democrats believed the virus would cause way more of those who catch the virus to go to the hospital. “Forty-one percent of Democrats thought it was over 50%! Another 28% put the chances at 20% to 49%. So, almost 70% of Democrats are wildly off on this key question.” The true percentage is 1 -5%. That just means to the hospital, not dead. YET, you would think it is a death sentence if you speak with one of these people.


Once you are terrified all other systems “shut down” and you just cannot be convinced it was an illusion. Just start with the numbers. They are trying to tell us that we have now lost as many people to COVID as died during the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic.  But though it might be true that 600,000 people died in each event. It is not nearly as serious when taken as a percentage of the population. Back then there were less than 2 billion people in the world, while that number has climbed to more than 7 billion now. So only 1/3 as many people have died so far this time.  Add to that the fact that the death rate is surely wildly inflated in the USA. There is story after story about people being labeled COVID deaths when they actually died of something else.

There seems to be a great disparity in the way doctors and nurses speak of this. Some speak of the horror of full ICUs and death coming after agonizing days or weeks on a ventilator. Others are trying to find treatments early on in the diagnosis and prescribing intravenous Vitamin C and the forbidden cures of Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine.  Some nurses are exhausted from watching people die while others are exhausted from watching treatments they feel are wrong, not helping.
They say the hospitals are full because so many nurses and staff have quit that they cannot handle more patients.  The death rate is way down from last year in spite of the “Delta” scare tactics. These numbers are available. And surely they will have a new variety (variant )every year from now on, maybe more than one. The virus is not going to go away.


Those who want to change the world into a place ruled by a ONE WORLD ORDER should be happy with the way things are going. The weakness of our government and its shyness about standing up for the USA, is frightening.  The shocking events surrounding the exit from Afghanistan are being obscured by the mandates for vaccines. Was the “Mandate” just another ruse to get the people to focus on something else besides our failed foreign policy? Instead of watching the news with horror as people try to escape Kabul we now have a problem right here, right now. The government and the President and many others are attempting to shame, terrorize, threaten and control the entire nation to get the shot. Naturally, there are people who are horrified at the orders to inject themselves with a substance they do not want. While one segment of the population is rushing to get the shot, there are others who do not want it. Some of these have had the virus and believe in their immunity, hundreds of thousands of them. Others simply do not feel comfortable with the type of shot being offered. They have done their research, looked into the ingredients, checked out the side effects, evaluated their own immune systems, and made a personal decision. They are questioning the science. This is not allowed. You are not allowed to think for yourself. Conform or die.

The average individual does not wish to be subjugated by anyone, especially the government. I want to be me. You want to be YOU. But more importantly, we do not want to be controlled. We want to control our own destiny. Though some are saying we need to be in “Harmony” and love one another. That is a lovely sentiment but it reminds me of the slogan Make Love, Not War!” which became popular during the Viet Nam War. We used to say things like “who would bomb a flower?” We were very innocent. Just last week the country learned that we made a drone strike that killed 7 children. We have a right to question our government. We are sovereign over ourselves. People are saying “No More!” We need to find others who will help us protect our inalienable rights.

  1. Here is a story that is relevant to today.
    The donkey told the tiger, “The grass is blue.”
    The tiger replied, “No, the grass is green .”
    The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they approached the lion.
    As they approached the lion on his throne, the donkey started screaming: ??Your Highness, isn’t it true that the grass is blue?”
    The lion replied: “If you believe it is true, the grass is blue.”
    The donkey rushed forward and continued: ??The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him.”
    The king then declared: ??The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence.”
    The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating ??The grass is blue, the grass is blue…”
    The tiger asked the lion, “Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?”
    The lion replied, ??You’ve known and seen the grass is green.”
    The tiger asked, ??So why do you punish me?”
    The lion replied, “That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is degrading for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with an ass, and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that question just to validate something you already knew was true!”
    The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn’t care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.
    When IGNORANCE SCREAMS, intelligence moves on.

  2. Bonnie, while I understand and appreciate that the population growth means that the Spanish flu was (so far) roughly 3x more deadly than Covid. What I don’t understand is why you of all people would not think that 30 percent as deadly as the Spanish flu is not reason to take every measure to protect our families and neighbors. This is a contagious disease and thank goodness we have the means to drastically lower the number of deaths. I don’t understand why you continue to spread disinformation. You know what loss is. No one is losing their freedom by protecting public health, it’s apples and oranges. When you speak of fear I think of your paranoia re: government overreach.

    1. Marina, the government overreach is so intense, so horrifying and so wrong that it is like talking to a wall to try to convince someone who does not see this. Don’t you have any sense of the intrusion into our private lives? First, it was seatbelts, and they do save lives. Then it was warning labels on everything including coffee “liquid may be hot” and banning any expression of Christian holidays. Gradually there are more and more medical restrictions and intrusions, are you in favor of doing away with Roe versus Wade? But now, they have taken the gloves off. Authorities are talking about limiting where people can go, the medical care they can receive, credit cards being forbidden without proof of a vaccine that is absolutely under suspicion by many, different entities. And all of this is outrageous because it is no one else’s business. Terrorizing people because a few extra people died last year, (which number is still unclear). Don’t you see that it could be you next? Have you read the poem “First they came for the Jews, but I didn’t say anything because I am not Jewish…”It goes on from there. How did you grow up with such a fear of doing things without government help? The government is not trying to keep you safe from people who do not use the “jab”. They are trying to keep you controlled. And scared.
      This disease is nowhere near as scary as the Spanish Flu. Thousands of people have died unnecessarily during this time because the authorities did not want patients to be treated for the disease. They have forbidden proven cures and treatments. They only wanted them to be scared and compliant and take the shot. If they really cared about people they would do something about the border. They would work to end child trafficking, or slavery in Islamic countries, or even just fix our homeless problems, but they don’t because that is not the “end game”. Wake up and look around.

  3. Marina, Bonnie is entitled and not very smart. Her children are right. She is selfish. She, like Trump, projects onto others her deficiencies. She’s let herself go physically, mentally, and morally.
