Thanks to the full weekend of nonstop coverage of the 2020 Coronavirus update, life has been cancelled. Fr my own memory, I want to start a list of everything that I can think of that closed.
Just a short list of what this means:
Schools in Pennsylvania – Closed for 2 weeks by the Governor
Restaurants and Bars – Closed
Non Essential Stores – limited to 50 people
March Madness – NCAA Basketball – Cancelled
NBA Basketball – On Hold til further Notice
NHL – On Hold
MLB Spring Training – On Hold 2+ ? weeks
All gatherings of over 50 people – Cancelled
Churches – cancelled
Meetings and gatherings – Cancelled
St Patrick’s Day Parades – Cancelled
Non Stop Drinking and Debauchery for St Patty’s Day weekend – STRONGLY DISCOURAGED
Movie Theaters – Closed until further notice
National Guard in most states activated
Travel bans from China, Asia, Iran, Italy, Europe, UK and Ireland.
Both Canada and Mexico closing their borders
As the hype and hysteria set in over the weekend, so did the level of insanity toward shutdown and control. Governors across the country were changing their minds faster than they change their underwear.
They continue to go deeper and deeper as the headlines get bigger. Is it bowing to public pressure?
Happy Monday! Let your light shine and be the light that helps others to see.
America is in a media war. It is an extension of the cold war that never ended, but shifted to an electronic front. The war between freedom and statism ended geographically when the Berlin wall fell, but the existential battle never ceased.
When the Soviet Union disintegrated, the battle simply took a different form. Instead of missiles the new weapon was language and education. and the international left had successfully constructed a global infrastructure to get its message out. Schools, Newspapers, Network News, Art, Music, Film, Television.
For decades the left understood the importance of education, art and messaging. Oprah Winfrey gets is. David Geffen gets it. Bono gets it. President BHO gets it. Even Corey Feldman gets it. But the right doesn’t.
Common Sense Does not win the day.
In the 21st century, media everything. And the left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media. Narrative is everything.

Who might think that a couple of sniffles and a cold might bring into question our personal Liberties. But in a world where there needs to be a cure or a pill for every ailment, loss of control is the bane of the medical establishment and, worse, our leaders.
Friday Morning – CBS News (Local) 7:00AM
“Coming Up. Special Coverage of the Corona Virus Outbreak”
CBS This Morning – Starring Oprah’s best friend Gayle King – “We are dedicating the entire our to special coverage of the Corona Virus.”
As the talking heads behind the Glass Network-Logo table with CBS Coffee mugs open with a laundry list of the number of people in the US (by state) affected and dead attributed to the Corona Virus. SCARE SCARE SCARE!
This level of Coronavirus promotion went on throughout the day, with Breaking News, Special Reports, Whole News Reports dedicated to The Virus, and ending the day with a 20/20 Special Report on the Coronavirus.
Add to this it is Friday March 13, Schools in Pennsylvania are closed until the middle of next week. Grocery stores are being run over for Bread and Toilet paper. This is worse than the calm before a blizzard where everyone runs out to buy Milk and Bread.
Watching the hype non stop on the news, on the internet, in interactions with everyone in the community, we must ask whether it is truly a disaster, or whether it is another case of “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
I will be updating here about the hype, the fear mongering, and utter insanity behind this SUPERVIRUS. Much to say. But even more to consider when looking at how you prepare yourself for it
Happy Monday! Love the life you have while you create the life of your dreams.
Happy Monday! Blaze a path of your own brilliance and illuminate the world!
