Covid 19 Crisis in California

Is not what you think…..

Let me give you some stats:

  1. California has 74,624 hospital beds according to the American Hospital Directory
  2. California has 11,578 ICU beds according to  California Department of Health
  3. Today there are 1,076 covid19 patients total in ICU units across California according to calmatters.org (the official calif. tracking site.)
  4. There are 78,839 in California who have the virus and do not need hospitalization according to LA Times
  5. California’s populations is: 39,500,000. (US Census)

So let’s do the math………

  1. 9.2% of the ICU beds in California are in need for covid19! (less than one out of ten)
  2. 1.4% of all Hospital beds are being used for these serious covid19 patients.
  3. .19% of Californians have the virus (less than 2 tenths of one percent

Now for some comments…………

If you do the numbers on a National basis you will find the covid19 impact is far less than in California.

Hospitals in California have been laying of staff…..doctors and nursing staff as well as admin.

I have it from multiple sources that for several weeks now deaths which are being contributed to covid19 are not deaths cause by the virus. But for some reason are being reported by the hospitals as if they were.

Even the Doctors in Bakersfield who brought attention to this have since been taken off Utube” and have basically been silenced.

Deaths cause by Flu and related issues and dropped significantly (below normally report numbers) since covid19 deaths have increased.

My only conclusion is the fear of this virus is massively out of proportion. The leadership  is either completely incompetent or there is a different agenda behind shutting down America’s and the World’s economies.

We in America have been thoughtful to follow safety protocols. But now there has been enough time and attention to no longer blindly follow needlessly.  There are those intentionally violating our basic rights as American as listed in the Bill of Rights which the government is suppose to protect above all things.

To follow blindly is to only encourage those who would and will take power at all cost and this absurd mask and social distancing is no more needful than doing what your mother told you to do as a child; ie wash your hands, cover your coughs and be thoughtful of others, if your felling sick, stay home you have 99% chance of getting over it if it is covid19!!!!!!

Get a grip don’t be sheepeople !!!!!

The Church

I have always thought it a good idea for the Christian community to support local businesses and community endeavors. After all we are part of our community.
Yet a sickness, or a Pandemic does not override the truth of God. It is true if we gather together as a congregation a virus may spread.
But it is also truth it may not. Who knows?
All we can do is to personally gather the best data available and after prayer make the wisest choice.
Yet, it is not business as usual. Perhaps the Church can stand in the gap to encourage: the way of life and truth. Speak truth to all with Boldness, gentleness and kindness.
I am thinking it is far more important for the church to provide emotional support for those families and individuals who for the first time in their lives are facing a life and death crisis. Because of the societal close down depression and fear is hovering over a lot of families. The Church is built, was made for, these times.
But am I thinking the church hungers for those in leadership to take a stand. Be wise and thoughtful for peoples health while at the same time not allowing any human institution to dictate to the Church of the Living God! Regardless of the cost.
For most of time and history human life has been defined by pain, loss and suffering. Yet in the midst of perhaps the worst time in human history God though Jesus broke through reality with a simple message of truth, Love and kindness over selfishness and control of the strong over the weak.
And now in America we, the Church of the Creator of all that is the only true God, who have surrendered and pledged our lives and fortunes to His control are willing to give all. Yet we need to be encouraged by the example of our leaders to stand in Christ above human institutions and governments.
We, as those called out by the Creator, need to gather as individuals joined by God’s Holy Spirit to form His Bride.
I hunger for the gathering of His Body the Church. Watching moving pictures of those caught in a 20th century expression is not people gathering together as a reflection or His truth.
 Now is the time to stand! No longer  surrendering to man’s authority. Stand as one accountably to a higher authority.
The Church needs to be who we are, the called out ones! Called out from everyone else.  If we die because of a stupid virus, so be it. Our life in Christ is beyond this temporary existence!

Covid 19 just an excuse

What is the objective standard by which the Federal Government uses to establish a national emergence and revoke the bill of rights and the rights granted by the constitution? If a disease which kills 50,000 or even 100,000 people a year is the standard, then we will never be free again.

Heart disease kills about 647,000 a year!!! It is an attack of an invisible enemy!!!!!

61,000 flu deaths in 2015 is that a crisis?

48,344 suicide deaths in 2018 is that a crisis?

169,000 accidental deaths in 2017 was that a crisis?

Is there an objective standard? If not, it is the whim or best guess of an expert who is as often as not wrong! To cause vast damage to an economy and the rule of law (constitution) is inexcusable and safeguards need to be put in place to prevent this from happening again!!

Covid19 in perspective

There are about 1,000,000 people who are known to have the virus. Last I read there were about 75,000 deaths. It is sad and disturbing whenever anyone dies much less from a totally new virus.

But that being said: the numbers say you have a 92.5% of getting better if you get sick with this thing! The number also seems to indicate it is only a serious threat to a very small portion of our general population; the elderly and those with preexisting conditions.

It seems to me this was started by a computer model (same folks who model global climate change). Folks in leadership are so used now to believing that a computer model can predict the future they have lost all perspective.

Reality based science and past practices in how to handle an outbreak were discarded in preference to massive government control in complete violation of our constitution and bill of rights!

And we the Sheepeople, quietly have followed because our lives are so comfortable we do not want to upset the apple cart in fear we will lose our traditional way of life……..

Sorry folks…..it is already gone….question is can we get it back??? It will not be given back…..The powerful never (or rarely) reduce their power willingly….

Time to stand or surrender.

 

Relational Reality

Most folks live in a fog of subjective fiction created around and floating above the shallow pond of personal desire and a vague sense of ought. No reason to live like that!

No reason to wonder why there is no purpose to life. No reason to do settle for a short lived temporary happiness and then fall back into a life in disappointment.

There is objective truth independent of opinion or circumstance. There is the potential of living in Relational Reality which changes everything for amazing good!

 

Public Unions

The greatest issue no one is talking about within the “shadow government” is public unions.

Whenever you have a group of people who can vote themselves a raise at the expense of other people with only marginal accountability, you have a recipe for oppression and a government which hides accountability.

Today there is a whirlpool of money being sucked from the producers of wealth in America; the small business persons, those who are middle management in large businesses, artist who are making a living at their art, being pull into the unaccountably of bureaucracy.

Our country is dangerously close to being a dictatorship under the guise of a democracy.

The elected officials no longer have enough courage to stand against the entrenched unionized bureaucracy.

The answer is simple to out law public employee unions.

Who has the courage?

 

Reality

How long will people be willing to live in the subjective fiction of personal preference?

There is an objective reality.

There is objective truth.

Something cannot come from nothing.

Nothing is: the absence of all……no physical reality, no energy, no laws of physics, no time… the absence of all! Nothing cannot produce something!!!!!!!!!

There has always been something……..The Creator………..

Live with it !!!!!!!

Anxious? Frustrated? Angry? Disappointed?

These things seem to spring from false expectations.When we expect something or someone to behave in certain way and it does not happen in accord with our expectations.

When, no matter how hard we work or invest ourselves to a relationship or circumstance and our desired outcome does not well….come out.
When we are or feel helpless to make or force the change we desire emotional darkness descends.

When that someone does not respond in the way we wish creates a whole bath of negative emotions.

Where is the emotional center point of stability if our lives are truly just a subjective compilation of physical experience translated through a self centered filter?

There is a path for Positive Healthy Relational Reality.

The New American Lap Dog!

The New 21st Century American Breed is cuddly, attractive and harmless. It lives only to be comforted and comfort.

Has its lineage in the ancient past (wolves who were outcast from other packs). It is  recognized by many as the most attractive breed of modern times.

Over many  lustrums  this breed provided not only for themselves, but many others. Still they willingly gave up their ability to do so for security.

This Breed can also be identified by its gentle demeanor and willingness to accept ownership from any who provide basic subsistence.

You can identify this modern Breed by its behavior or willingness to give up its freedom for gentle stroking, calming verbal commands as well as meager gifts of food, health, sensuality and comfort.

This new breed has been carefully modified from the former aggressively independent, yet temperate animals selected from a cross sections of many different breeds.

Being self identified and self selected through a willingness to surrender freedom, this breed’s desired behavior can be reenforced by giving them ever more progressive treats.

They rapidly lose the ability to provide for themselves. At this point one can comfortably misuse and abuse their trust with no consequence.

This New Breed is attractive from a distance, but the closer and more personally involved you get, the more they require of you.

The more attention you give to it, the more it demands.

These animals have minimal demands place upon them. But demand much from those who provide for them.

They rapidly reproduce to such an extent no single person or family can house this new Breed for long.

The only way to care or provide for this new Breed is to allow the greater community to collect ever-growing resources from those still aggressive enough to provide for themselves and others

This is not a self-sustaining breed. It requires a master or a more aggressive breed to provide for it to survive.

Unfortunately this breed becomes an increasing burden upon its master and as attractive as this breed seems, for it to survive, the master must take ever-increasing control of its behavior.

This Breed has a diminishing intelligence and each generation has a reduction in skills and abilities, to provide for themselves.

Some Breeds are just a failure regardless good intent!

 

Change of Profession….. not retirement! :)

As I approach this change of profession, I have been reviewing some old material to help me focus my new career as a writer. A writer is an artist who uses words instead of paint or musical notes.

Genuine art reflect the world, events, relationships, times and emotions of the environment and society of the artist. Recognition of the artist depends upon how the art is realized, identified or creates empathy with those who come in contact with it.

There are two components to art. One is the art itself. Two is getting the art to the general public and to those who will accept and appreciate it. Both are components to art. Just as communication, to exist requires the transmitter and the receptor. Without both it does not exist.

I have no idea how well my writings will be accepted or even meet my above definition of art. I do know I have some thoughts which need to be said, expressed in such a way those who read them will be affected to reflect reality.

For several decades I have been successful in creating and managing organizations that exist solely for the benefit of others. Over those years I discovered some basic keys for success. It is my plan to implement these same keys as a writer. The keys follow.

1. Always be positive, beware of negativity
2. Decide upon true dreams and goals………create the plan to realize them.
3. Take Action! Do something each day to accomplish the dreams.
4. Learn! To write better, understand what the publisher are looking for, understand the hunger of the general population for your style of art. Your niche.
5. Be persistent……Work hard means hours………when you would like to be doing something else……
Success is a Marathon!!!!!!!!!
6. Analyze details
7. Focus time and money: both are in short supply
8. Innovate! Be Different to be noticed.
9. Deal and Communicate with people effectively, understanding those things which motivate others.
10. Above all be honest! Be Dependable. Take personal responsibility!

If you are reading this, it is because you may become one of my treasured friends (does not matter if you are a relative or not). Love (self sacrificing for the benefit of the other) is the most accurate reflection of the Creator of all things. It does not matter whether you place me in the same spot in your relationships.

Love is such a great thing! I can give it without reservation and it just grows in my person, my heart! So I have more to give! I know of nothing else which grows as personal possession when you give it away! The more you give the more you have! Amazing!!!!

I love you! Yep, just got some more! 

Now if you doubt my love, all you have to do is call. I will do all within my wisdom to help you.

The Creator who is both outside and inside of time and physical reality bless you with tenderness, gentleness, goodness, kindness, love, acceptance and forgiveness!!!!!!!!!! 
