Your seven year old kid is going nuts. It’s his birthday and he wants to have some friends over, just to share some cake and play some games. It’s just going to be a few hours.

As you walk down the street by yourself, you see a group of friends , maybe some you have not seen in a while. You stop to chat.

When you pull into a supermarket, the lot is packed and the line is going almost out the door just to check out. People are not six feet away, they are together. Especially lines to get free food at churches and food banks.

Alex Lloyd Gross- Photo Delaware Valley News.com social distancing be damned at this SEPTA train station.

Dawn Altstatt Special To Delaware Valley News.com. When Giant announced near store procedures, people responded by swarming the stores. This is the scene on Street Road in Bensalem.

When you go for exercise, you grab a basketball and before you know it, 10 to 20 people in your neighborhood are having a game. Since it’s a beautiful night, several others have come out to watch. Maybe there is a BBQ and some music.

In 2020 NONE of that is acceptable. Not just yet.  That seven year old coming to your house from down the block, his mother has COVID-19.She just does not show symptoms yet. Congratulations. you gave him some cake and he gave your entire household coronavirus.

Those friends you have not seen,  you do know know who they have been around.  A few days later you now have symptoms.

That basketball game was fun.  you worked up a seat and bumped into some players or spectators that transmitted the disease. .At Giant Supermarkets in Lower Bucks County and NE Philadelphia, the line is around the store, inside. No one is doing any social distancing and few of the customers or employees are wearing masks.

The longer people keep doing these things, the longer we will all be stuck inside our houses and our businesses will be closed. Within a few weeks, look for  stores to restrict what you can buy. It is happening  in other areas of the country. Televisions, paints, clothes are all put away or those sections are roped off.

    Problem is what we are doing now…isnt working to irradicate the virus, its only slowing it down….some may argue that slowing it down as to not overwhelm the healthcare system is the best option…It isnt…..Many prople have spent their last paychecks weeks ago, and still not received unemployment or government stimulus…Most of country is currently unemployed……Our Economy is in very real danger of collapsing…..Once that happens….America is gone.
    There are only 2 real ways to deal with this virus.
    1.martial law enacted and a forced vaccine.
    ( problem is we are at least a YEAR away from a vaccine and Americans probably will react violently to martial law seeing it as a hostile takeover…)
    2.HERD IMMUNITY is the best option…..Isolate the elderly/vulnerable people……Let the healthy go back to work, children back to school…Let mother nature do her thing.
    We know that most people have caught the virus with little or no issues, and it rarely affects children……
    We must get sick to gain immunity.
    Right now, most of our workforce can be working and our Economy would be fine…….
    If We stay the course with what we are currently doing…..the Economy will crash, there will be no jobs to go back to…there will be no funds to give out, there will be no medical care.
    It takes money to support all these things…..and by the way, a little off subject….we are extremely vulnerable to terroristic attacks right now….We have the strongest military in the world, but it is only as good as our economy…..it takes alot of money to support our military actions.
