• I had a conversation with an Amish gentleman
yesterday while I was loading at a mill, and at
the end of the conversation he asked me one
question that should really get one thinking.
He asked Do you know why this virus hasn't
affected us yet?" no "well because we don't
have television"

    • Covid is real but the amount of people that will actually die from it is very very small. That’s why hospitals are incentivized to call any death Covid to pump the number of deaths.
