I was think about this the other day. With all the stats and numbers of covid cases/deaths/hospitalizations etc , some of it is just pure junk or fake news to create the 'plandemic'.

If you have stepped into a Walmart recently, with them cutting their hours down to 'help' with controlling covid , it just about does the opposite as you now have the same amount of people in a smaller time frame. Let's face it people need stuff like food and other things. Add into the mix smaller stores that have been closed due to restrictions , this forces more people to Walmart.

Here is the question , with all this human activity crammed into Walmart , the Walmart employees are dealing with piles of people every day all day.

Why hasn't there been a huge spike of Walmart employees getting sick ? You would think they would be dropping like flies.

Thoughts ?

I think the protocol is to only allow a certain amount of people in the store at one time,to maintain social distancing.At least it was here last spring,when the pandemic started and was on the rise in places like grocery stores,etc.
Things are more normal now that it is going away.

Good point, and one thats been made by some in the past. Sean Hannity talks about this very thing often. Heres another question. Why the big push to wear masks? I had some first hand experience with masks early on. Our entire ambulance crew was tested with masks last spring and the masks failed in every case. They put a hood over your head while you are wearing a mask, then spray some stuff inside the hood. If you smell or taste it, the mask failed. It failed with every member of our crew. So we dont wear them. Heres an article on the actual data of the effectiveness of masks. Try sharing it to FB....the "fact checkers" say its false information.....why?? Heres the article, ( one of many)

https://www.rcreader.com/commentary...ence-relevant-to-covide-19-social-policy

Then you have to ask yourself, why is it that 500 people can go into the big box stores, but the barber down the street had to close his doors?? Doesn't make any sense, and thats why some of us are skeptical and think there is a hidden agenda to this whole hoax...

was at a store that had that limit not a WM but a different store 116 people was the number this is when you realize they base these numbers on total SQ footage and not available space 116 people in that store would have been shoulder to shoulder.

WM is like 400 people here it never actually gets that many

my son worked for WM for a while during this pandemic

as a part timer they had him working nearly full time to cover for the people who were out with covid or on 14 day time out

he was not a cashier so they may be different but revolving door of people coming in and leaving , he only had any close contact with one person per shift that was the person he was designated to team lift with heavy stuff.

you are a disposable shift filler at WM


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Big thing for them is you almost never have to interact with an employee there.

During the Barret deal at the White House, I believe 12 people got Covid out of over 100 attendees, one of those infected was Senator who was wearing a mask. If masks are the answer how is this possible and how did the unmasked majority not get sick?

"Wear a Mask to Protect Others

Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect others in case youíre infected with COVID-19 but donít have symptoms
Wear a mask in public settings when around people who donít live in your household, especially when it may be difficult for you to stay six feet apart"

CDC

Glad I could help!

How would you be able to tell? People will still get infected, even if people made an effort not to infect other people. Many people don't care if they get infected, or infect other people. I sure would make an effort not to infect an 80 year old.

Nobody in their right mind want's to infect anyone. If I was 80 I'd be staying home alone and if they don't that's on them. No one can put you at risk other than yourself.

Its nothing but common sense. Hopefully most of us are smart enough to know all this. Long before the china virus came along it was just considered common sense not to go visit the elderly if you were sick. Nothing has changed except now it seems like most need the government to tell them that. Science says masks are not going to help stop transmission. My wife works home care when we are not in the bush and has for years, news flash here, there are many things that can be deadly to older people, especially those with underlying conditions, ( which the vast majority of the elderly have.) This virus is just one of many things you should be careful of....what you shouldn't need is the government to have to do your thinking for you. Look at the stats...the vast majority of china virus deaths in the US are those 79 and older. How many actually died from the china virus vs those who died with it we will never know, but the published data is garbage...

This should make some think about whats going on....these numbers are from Scotland but our numbers are very similar...

The average age at death for those who died with Covid-19 in Scotland was 79 for men and 84 for women. Elsewhere in the NRS report it showed that life expectancy in Scotland is 77.1 for males and 81.1 for females.
The report says the age profile of those dying with Covid was significantly older than that for deaths in general.

More than three quarters (77%) of all those who died were aged 75 or over and 43% were aged 85 or over.

This compared with overall deaths in 2019 where 63% were aged 75 or over and 33% were aged 85 or over.

So how do I know I have covid, if I have no symptoms, so I can avoid people when I'm sick?

It's not up to you to protect everyone, people need to protect themselves.

Now you're thinking for yourself...answer is you dont/wont know if you have it. My wife and I just finished a 14-day plus self isolation/quarantine because we both got the china virus. We knew because our daughters fiancť tested positive. The reality is that everything we did we would have done anyway if we were sick. Normally we wouldn't self isolate for 14 days, and in fact it looks like that is overkill but just to be safe not a bad idea maybe.

I look at it like this. They cant have it both ways. On one hand they tell us how contagious it is, then in the next breath they say you can reduce the odds of getting it by wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart. The fact is way more people have had it than the numbers show. I felt like I had a mild cold, nothing more. Didnt take anything for it. Lasted for a few days then back to normal. Common sense says there are thousands walking around with it, and now the tests are proving it...

1968 I got the Hong Kong Flu I was real sick!.....250,000 people died in the US. Nothing was shut down, no masks, no distancing, life continued on, Fauchi was silent if even around!

February, March, April WM, Sportsman Warehouse, Fred Meyers were packed. There was no big uptick. Testing started and cases started rise but very few deaths. Now there is supposed to be a rise in cases but John Hopkins says we are flat. Alaska Airlines on November 1 is opening the center seats.

I am almost 80 and I have just finished radiation and have other health issues. I CHOOSE to wear a mask and stay away from stores but our family still meets every day since I have a family business and also interact with my employees. These are my choices. That is what liberty and freedom are, be informed and make my own decisions! No regrets!!!


I love the smell of burning spruce-- I love the sound of the spring time goose--I love the feel of 40 below--from my Trapline I will never go.

I questioned the same thing. Walmart closed to one entrance and exit funneling all the people closer together when they are supposed to further apart. They answered they didnt have enough staff to have someone watch both doors. I this than that makes little since since they wont say anything to those without a mask on what the point. They just responded like a Democrat that ran out of talking points with no original thought of their own well with out resorting to the name calling that normally follows like homophobe and racist.

A lady in my hometown who is a hairdresser had a customer come in. They both wore a mask. The customer later tested positive and the health dept. forced the hairdresser to close for 14 days even though they both were wearing masks. Pure insanity.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

You sir, are the kind of people who built America and keep it the greatest country on the planet. Glad to hear you have a family, your kids and those like them are our only hope.
