Whose fears are you honoring?

I am not surprised that some Christian pastors have rejected the government’s fearful mandates and are meeting anyway. The government is not following any biblical principles in their attempts to stop COVID-19 and telling the church to stop meeting is anti-biblical and a sign of the times.

If the government has the power to harm you, then the government has too much power.

If you calculate the U.S. average, daily death toll from COVID-19 from the day the first death was reported on March 1, then there have been about 148 deaths a day. If you calculate the U.S. average, daily death toll from the first person diagnosed with COVID-19 on January 15, then the death toll is about 62 people a day.

The COVID-19 response suits self-righteous Americans well because they love to virtue signal.

If nothing changes in the U.S.' relationship with China because of COVID-19 they are being foolish.

Reportedly, as of April 1 about 2.2% of people in the U.S. that get infected with COVID-19 die from it.

On this current trajectory and in light of the government’s intentions to lift stay-at-home orders on May 1, they are apparently intending on COVID-19 killing around 25,000 people before May 1 and about 75,000 to 215,000 more people dying afterwards. With all due respect that doesn’t sound like much of a plan.

I use CNN, MSNBC and Fox News applications to watch the news on my Apple iPad. CNN’s app is the best. MSNBC’s app makes me enable Location Services and buffers or crashes when I change from the small screen to the full screen. Fox News doesn’t require Location Services, but unlike the others they do not allow you to watch a little screen and access other applications at the same time. All of the apps let users enter their cable TV credentials to watch live programs for free.

If Americans didn’t eat such a poor diet and have such an unhealthy lifestyle they would have a better chance to fully recover from COVID-19.

This weirdness is going to cause a lot of problems in the U.S. for a long time in many different ways.

I hope I see your face again because I can’t quite remember your name.

There should be a way to prove to the government that you have gotten over COVID-19 and are immune to it, so you can return to your regular life instead of living in hiding for no reason like they want everybody to do.

Why doesn’t the government protect us from air pollution?

Fools judge others more than themselves.

An employee told me to stop and I said ok and that she would never see me again. Meanwhile, an armed security man took their cash and walked to his running vehicle and I asked both of them a question. I said, “If those two homeless people stink (and I pointed to two homeless people in the parking lot) whose fault is it?”

A wisely worded question can be more powerful than an angry threat because the hearer will answer in his or her head and it will be a conclusion that they can’t easily deny or reject because you didn’t put it there.

If suicides increase in the dystopian state of America I will be unsurprised.

On this trajectory the planet has a death sentence and America will have blood on its hands because only America can stop destroying the planet before it irreparably changes everything for the worse and then motivate others to quit destroying it too.

No matter how much you worry and no matter how scared you get some things just aren’t newsworthy.

The U.S.’ response to COVID-19 is like somebody with a hangnail cutting off their hand.

Allegedly, God created everything in six days and Christians want us to believe that Jesus has been preparing a place for Christians in Heaven for almost 2,000 years? That doesn’t add up.

Mentally strong people should be fine in isolation and poverty, but mentally weak people probably won’t be ok.

As long as you don’t call your sins what they are you won’t repent.

There are zero verses in the Bible that condemn any of my behaviors, but there are many scriptures that condemn many of your actions.

The unrighteous call the righteous self-righteous.

If you can prove your righteousness, then you aren’t self-righteous. You’re righteous. If you can’t prove your righteousness, then you’re self-righteous.

Johns Hopkins University was dead wrong about Hong Kong being the country with the second most COVID-19 infections behind China. Dozens of other countries have more infections.

What will they call the next coronavirus? Perhaps they will call it “the new coronavirus” because calling this one “coronavirus” is a misnomer because it describes a type of diseases and not a specific one.

I still do not fear COVID-19. I think there is an extraordinarily remote chance that I will be infected. Also, I think if I get infected I will not die or have any lasting health problems from it. I am not afraid in the slightest despite the government and media’s best attempts to make people fearful.

If you add all the days that I have fasted, I have not eaten by choice for many months of my life. However, I have only not eaten by circumstance a few times. It’s a different feeling when you don’t decide to avoid food, but you are unable to buy food. Fasting is empowering, but hunger is debilitating.

Today I began instinctually saying something that I used to say in my first years living on the street. “We’re screwed.” It had little to do with COVID-19. It had to do with people still ignoring the biggest causes of suffering, disease, death and eventual extinction even after making radical changes.

The American lifestyle is the biggest cause of disease on Earth.

Today the Kauai police arrested a homeless man that flew here from Oahu because he had no lodging and violated the 14 day mandatory stay-at-home/self-quarantine order by Gov. Ige. I hope they aren’t rounding up all the homeless people and incarcerating them because that doesn’t seem fair.

Donald Trump ordered states to stop allowing exemptions for people to get EBT (food stamps). In other words, if a homeless person isn’t working or isn’t earning a lot of money they won’t qualify for EBT anymore (technically, they will only be eligible for 3 months in a 3 year period until they are 50 years old). However, he stayed the order for a while because of COVID-19.

If you cause a problem and then you fix the problem how much credit should you get for fixing the problem that you created in the first place?

Yesterday at Safeway there were lines and only one checkstand open and self-checkout. The cashier said she was the only person there that could do it. In a pandemic you would think the grocery store would try to get customers in and out as quickly as possible.

A scientist’s assumptions are not necessarily any better than a layperson’s assumptions.

I don’t believe a lot of things that are commonly accepted in society.

The truth defies a lot of textbooks.

Sometimes I click on a link to a YouTube video, but I don’t watch it. I pause the video and comment.

When I listened to Bible and prophecy buff Chuck Missler speak many years ago he said America is not mentioned in the Bible and it is strangely absent from the End Times verses. He said there were several reasons why America would be a non-factor and he proposed a few devastating possibilities.

I just realized that Ezekiel 39:6 could more easily refer to the U.S. and U.K. now that the U.K. left the European Union (which biblical scholars see as the revived Roman Empire).

Some Americans are desperate to justify their fears.
