Remember back in March when we shut everything in the world down to “flatten the curve” so we’d be able to open everything back up by Easter? I get it that we’re told to “listen to the scientists!” but it gets hard to do when the scientists themselves don’t agree and when sometimes they tell us something that they totally reverse a short time later. Early on, we were implored to NOT wear a mask. I remember Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was considered the expert on all things Covid and the Surgeon General speaking at a press conference urging that only medical professionals wear a mask. Remember we were told that it was very dangerous for us to wear a mask if we weren’t medical professionals because we’d be more likely to touch our faces and if we wore a mask, we would DIE!

We were told to disinfectant everything we touched because the virus lingered for days on surfaces of the things we touch.

Somehow, we were told it would be safe to go to Walmart or the supermarket, but if we went to a small boutique where only a couple of people were in the store, we would surely DIE!

Churches closed, but casinos didn’t. You were not permitted to get a mammogram or have a tooth pulled, but you were allowed to have an abortion because in someone’s twisted mind, an abortion was essential, but church or having a cancer screening wasn’t. We were told to stay away from large groups, but if we rioted or looted a store or tossed bricks at a police officer, we’d be safe. It was about that time that much of the general public realized that Covid was serious, but some of the political figures ordering us about as if we were 3 year olds in potty training were not trying to control a deadly disease as much as they were trying to control us.

We were ordered to wear the very masks that we had just weeks before been told would kill us. We were told no need to spray the groceries or boxes delivered with disinfectant as it wouldn’t be helpful after all.

Let me be clear-Covid is real and it kills people. I’ve lost several friends who have died from this hideous disease including a dear friend who is a pastor’s wife in Arkansas and who once worked for me as an executive assistant in the Governor’s office. Aaron Wilbourn, a wonderful Christian gentleman who was a great songwriter, performer, and comedian, and who was a regular in our theater to entertain our studio audience died a week ago from Covid. One of my own sons came down with it, and while having some symptoms of fever, sore throat, and cough, was able to get treated early and effectively and avoided a hospital stay or severe consequences and he was very careful to always mask, sanitize and social distance. He had to isolate away from his 3 children and pregnant wife to avoid exposing them.

When it comes to the seriousness of Covid, I don’t believe many of the politicians who order the rest of us to avoid travel or socialization but who go out and eat, get haircuts, travel for vacation and even show up for big events. I don’t need their hypocritical demands. I will wear a mask, avoid personal contact, wash my hands and keep distances because I believe what’s happened to my friends even if I DON’T believe what hypocritical officials say since they themselves don’t believe anything they say. The cases and deaths this week are higher than they have ever been. Don’t be foolish or careless. But next time you get to vote, don’t vote for mayors and governors who tell you to do what they are unwilling to do. They think we’re peasants and they are princes and princesses. They aren’t. But even the peasants have the power to rise up and demand that leaders live by the same rules they impose on the rest of us.

    That was a great read you hit the nail right on the head. Now it is about the lazy and ignorant people that don’t see what the Liberal side of our government is trying to pull off. To many Americans today want to take the easy road. They need to realize there is no easy road. How much better would America be if everyone did their part.

    I thought Obama was the biggest hoax ever played on Americans but covid-19 has surpassed that by leaps and bounds. The good thing is it cured influenza and pneumonia. Nobody does of these diseases this year while in 2019 60,000 died of the flu and 50,000 died of pneumonia. My view is covid is just a new name for an old disease. The death rate in the USA has increased in 2020. Explain that......

    I think the government is trying to find out how far they can push the populace before they revolt.

    Hello, the misinformation from the beginning from so called "experts" put this country in a panic. The personal attacks on people not wearing masks became worse than schoolyard bullying. I believe people, like myself have looked at the information about the serious illnesses from bacteria ON masks and realized social distancing was enough. The masks people are wearing are a joke! They will not stop the virus. I'm sorry about the losses of beloved people in your life and hate that it happened to them. I won't, however, put myself in harm's way if I can avoid it nor would I harm anyone else if I were to become infected. Masks the general public are wearing are not stopping the virus. If they did, the virus would have been gone long ago. Thank you.

    Thank God our founders codified the 2nd Amendment. These peasants will have more than pitchforks to stop the rampaging monster of socialism.

    Covid19 isn't as bad as you and others are saying. Hydroxycloroquine and zpac work to cure it. Hundreds of DOCTORS have used it. One in san Diego had 1900 patients he used it on and only one died because they waited too late to come in for treatment. Turn off abc,cbs,nbc, fox and msnbc.

    Cut to the chase! There's 700,000,000,000 on the planet @ $50-$75 per dispensed vaccines. Do the math. Greed plagues the generations, when will we end the cycle. Solomon knew.

    I seriously am for taking another vote...without the Dominion machines, without mail-in ballots, except those who were already registered for YEARS. Let's see how that works out. I am fearful for my family and my country of what the Dems will do next.

    How can we vote these people out when they fix the votes . No wonder they don’t want term limits. And we know the fraud exists and the news doesn’t report it and politicians won’t stand up. We are screwed!

    It is an awful virus! But people still need to live! Most Americans will do what they should to stay safe and keep others safe. I don’t believe masks do anything. They make us more unhealthy. I have 0000 trust in our government and 000 trust in the Drs and scientists. I will not get the vaccine. I pray for all the families affected by this virus and I pray for this country but this road we’re on is not going to have a good outcome. It’s already been written and never been closer to being full filled. Thank you for all you Mr Huckabee! I love your daughter Sarah too!

    I respect what you say, and I m sorry you have lost friends to this virus. I don’t believe the numbers! They are being manipulated! Masks and social distancing is a joke! We are losing our rights and our humanity! People are afraid, angry, and disillusioned! We are told not to believe what we See and hear. The most humiliating, is we are told not to think!

    Great commentary. However, daily deaths are NOT higher than they’ve ever been. The death rate remains exceedingly low. Any “news source” that tells you otherwise is lying and or reporting deaths by date reported, not by date of occurrence (death harvesting).
