The coronavirus has completely altered how we currently operate our businesses, education and home life. It is the biggest disruption to our society since WW2. And the economic result will likely plunge the world into at least a short- term depression. As FDR noted in the midst of WW2, – There is nothing to fear but fear itself. There are others who summed up how we must persevere during the current coronavirus crisis if we are to maintain our society and come out stronger than we went in.
“Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country” President John F Kennedy:
“The Needs of the Many Outweigh the Needs of the Few” Mr. Spock in Star Trek
Even Neil Armstrong noted that his accomplishment was our accomplishment “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

To this (and I note that Trump banner), I can only ask the following questions to these people:
Are you 1) completely a selfish, self centered person who cares little about your neighbor?
Or 2) just completely uninformed about the issues with the virus?
Or 3) incapable of understanding the information given to you about the virus?
Or 4) brain damaged from your environment, being abused as a child, too many concussions form playing sports or abusing to many substances to exercise competent judgment?
Or 5) trying to commit suicide (noting that many fit the high risk category of older, white, fat, pre-diabetic or diabetics with high blood pressure)?
Or 6) trying to kill off as many older, white, fat, pre-diabetic or diabetics with high blood pressure because you hate yourself and people like you?
Those are the only option I can come up with other than being stupid, because the prior 6 we can get you help for. But we can’t cure stupid. What this and similar displays ARE NOT is a group of intelligent, informed, thoughtful people trying to make the best of a bad situation with the goal of building a stronger nation for everyone on the other side of covid-19.
My Michigan born and raised, patriotic WW2 B17 gunning, aerospace engineering Father, who loved everything about this country is rolling in his grave of sand in Northern Michigan over this nonsense.
PS – I think the coronavirus is to small to be killed AR15 weapons. Just FYI – see questions above
