    After a ton of research – what I found…

    Posted by delta on 17th August 2020

    First off, I wear a mask. Up to a few days ago I wore it just in case I had something that I did not want to pass to you. When I was in the military I spent a lot of time in Japan and saw how they wore masks when they were sick – this did two things: 1) it made it obvious that that person had something that they didn’t want to pass on to others so they could avoid that individual if they chose to and 2) it prevented them from sneezing or coughing all over the place… So, out of consideration to those around me, I happily donned a mask and felt good about it…

    It then dawned on me recently that I have only had one customer greet me with a mask on since this thing began. I work in their houses, so it really got me to thinking because many of my customers are doctors and lawyers – so I started talking to them about it and they directed me to various information and now I’m kind of miffed…

    If you ask me today, I still wear a mask. I no longer wear it because I think I’m going to catch something; I no longer wear it because I think I’m going to pass something to someone else; I wear it because you are afraid, there is absolutely no way of talking you out of your fear and I don’t want your reaction (due to your fear) to create in me (in anyway) any type of situation in which I may have to hurt you. I have nine mouths to feed and can not afford to not go to work tomorrow because I reacted incorrectly to your incorrect reaction. So, I wear a mask…

    Many folks have said or wrote to me stating that they simply do not understand what rights are being taken from us by county or state mandates – such as wearing of masks. I thought I’d respond here so I don’t have to repeat it.

    The current County and State mandates being imposed due to this virus/flu ARE a loss of your constitutional rights as an American. This is a document which I swore to support and defend when I was 18 years old – I take the oath as seriously today as I did then… When you join the military, and take this oath, you give up your rights and become an indentured slave for the duration of your enlistment (if you are enlisted, officers are a bit different). When your term of indenturement comes to an end, no one ever “relieves” you of the oath – the words were said and, if you have an ounce of honor in you, can not be “taken back”… Pay attention…

    When a church/store/restaurant puts a sign up that says “No shirt, No Shoes, No Mask, No Service” – that is their choice. I then have the choice to go to that church/store/restaurant or find another one. NOW, If the government mandates it, the choice has been removed from both the church/store/restaurant and myself…

    Concerning the Church, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    In other words, speaking to the scenario above, the First Amendment states the Federal Government can not, in any way, mandate anything (such as masks, or praising God at the top of my lungs) which can prohibit my right to go to church, to say whatever I want about it or peaceably assemble. It simply can not.

    The Ninth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

    The Ninth Amendment is the “My Body, My Choice” Amendment – by denying a vendor/church or an individual the right to choose (EX: wearing masks with no scientific data/basis that it prevents spread, mass quarantines effectively shutting down our economy, potential forced vaccinations which may or may not work and perhaps may make more people sick) we are being denied our Ninth Amendment Rights…

    Once the government begins to take any of these rights from us, and we settle for it, it makes it easier for them to take just a little more next time – wait for us to settle and then take a little more, wait for us to settle and then take a little more, etc… This is about more than the life and death of .05% of our population, this is about the death of our economy, our rights and our country – and we are simply sitting in our houses in front of the TV (in many cases becoming more afraid day by day) watching it happen as though we were watching a football game…

    The President has, I’m sure, several constitutional lawyers on hand who brought these issues up with him and he used the Tenth Amendment as a safeguard to assure the Federal Government stayed within it’s Constitutional boundaries. The Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    The President was bound by the Tenth Amendment to hand over the issue of the day to the states to assure our First and Ninth Amendment rights were not being denied by the Federal Government – and he did just that… Odd thing is that he got slammed by doing it from the liberals and the press – really odd…

    Once the President handed the issue to the States his hands were tied – there is no Federal Statute which gives the President the authority to override the States in this situation. This prevents the Executive Branch of our government from becoming a Dictatorship – and still, he gets slammed by the liberals and the press – really odd…

    The President is charged to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” – he must do what he needs to do, within the boundaries of the Constitution, to preserve, protect and defend YOUR RIGHTS as an American… He initially tried to do so, but issues beyond the purview of the Constitution arose, so he had to hand it over to the States… I don’t like the man myself, but he has done what he thought best to keep his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States – I have a bit of respect for that…

    If there is still a United States when this is all over, there will be many lawsuits (of course) and many of the issues that the states and counties are handling incorrectly today will be seen as gross-negligence of our Ninth Amendment Rights. Mask mandates, quarantines, being forced to live/work/vacation in a “bubble”, forced vaccinations and all derivatives or extensions of these things – a reckoning is coming (it may even take the form of a revolution if our kids begin starving)… They will use their State constitutions, specifically the emergency/special powers within them, to justify their actions – but, as a county within a state and a state within the United States, “the buck stops” at the top. When all is said and done, the United States Constitution supersedes all State and County laws/mandates within the United States and the U.S. Supreme Court will have the final say…

    Once the President handed the issue over to the States, it became a local issue and you have to start looking at local Constitutions, Laws and Statutes. You will find within each State, the State Constitutions afford the Governors certain policing/emergency/special powers which the federal government does not have – which is a good thing (otherwise we’d have a dictatorship)… Why do they need “Police/Emergency/Special Powers”? Haven’t you heard? There’s a virus out there!

    A virus that 70%-80% of the population has T-Cell immunity to from the get-go; A virus that 99.95% of us will survive with very few issues. Let me explain…

    First off, lockdown is the wrong way to go at this point – the hospitals are ready for us now. We are all going to be exposed to this virus and there is nothing anyone can do about it. So, now, at this time, in this place, lockdown is actually prolonging the issue. Numbers will continue to ebb and flow as we continue to open and close…

    So, when you are exposed to this virus (just like any other flu) it will attack you. Immune or not, 99.95% of us will either have no symptoms at all or we’d have a few (just as we would with any flu). First, the antibodies (if you have any) will attempt to prevent the virus from binding to cells and then your T-Cells immediately start searching and destroying the remaining invaders until they are ALL dead… At that point, these individuals will then be immune…

    The problem we’re seeing here is with the PCR testing. If an immune individual is tested shortly after being exposed they will test positive (even though they are immune). What is showing up on the test are small parts of the dead virus (Viral Debris) that the T-Cells and antibodies have killed… That’s right! The PCR test does not test whether the virus from your body is alive or dead!

    The news, and our politicians, are reporting “Cases” as if that is THE number – they are presenting it as though “those are the people who are going to die”. This is absolutely false, in fact, “Cases” are:
    1) those who are immune and shedding dead virus (these are your “asymptomatic” folks)
    2) those who are slightly sick (with minor flu symptoms) will have immunity in a few weeks (after dealing with the virus/flu while in quarantine)
    3) those who are in the hospital for another issue and then test positive after being exposed in the hospital and
    4) those who need hospitalization specifically due to the virus/flu
    so, the word “Cases” means absolutely nothing!

    It’s that simple! The number I want to see is “hospitalizations due to….” – that number means something…

    There’s another issue with the reports coming out. They say that the antibodies may not stick around for this specific virus/flu. First of all, how do they expect to make, market, sell and implement a vaccine if this is true? How are they possibly going to walk that one back? I can’t wait to see how they sell it to you all. Secondly, it doesn’t matter because T-Cell immunity is like having memory cells in your body – and they tend to stick around for quite a while (years in many cases)…

    Worst case scenario: at the moment, there’s a 50% chance that a vaccine could stimulate the T-Cells to produce the wrong type of antibodies to fight this virus/flu (whether you are already immune or not) – those individuals who do not react well with the vaccine may be a larger number than those who have been hospitalized or died so far (and that would simply “SUCK”)…

    What the above breaks down to is this: if you’ve had SARS, MERS, Flu A, Flu B, OC43, HKU1, NL63, 229E or any other derivative coronavirus/flu (which is about 70%-80% of the population) then you likely, at least partially, have cross-immunity (via T-Cell immunity) from one (or more) of the above…

    If you look at the numbers being hospitalized for this virus/flu and dying specifically from this virus/flu statistically, it would actually put the number of cross-immune (via T-Cell Immunity) folks to a higher percentage (somewhere around 95%), but I’m willing to concede a few points for the bad diets, bad habits, bad living conditions, bad health and bad shape many of our high-risk folks are in (half of them probably don’t know they’re high risk)…

    A few things to “keep in mind” throughout this “Emergency”:
    1) we are ALL going to be exposed to this (by shutting down and reopening we are just prolonging the inevitable)
    2) high risk folks (of which, I am most likely one) are just as high-risk with this virus/flu as they are with another
    3) All of the lasting effects of this virus/flu to our bodies have the same potential as they would with any other virus/flu (it depends on the condition of our body when we are exposed to it)
    4) The only thing which makes this virus/flu different than any other is that it is being reported as though it was a continuous sporting event and many are stuck in their house watching it…

    Going back to the original question: what do they need emergency/special powers for? Yeah… Exactly… At this point, the biggest danger is the doctors treating it differently (for various reasons) and soon-to-be forced vaccinations…

    These “Emergency/Special Powers” exercised by the States can not be instituted by the Federal Government. As such, they are obligated to hand it over to the States under the current climate – this does not mean these actions are Constitutional in any way, quite the opposite actually…

    Think about it, if we lose the First Amendment, we don’t JUST lose our freedom of religion and/or our right to go to church, we’d also lose our right to free speech, freedom the press, freedom to assemble or to petition the government. If we lose the Ninth Amendment, we lose our right to choose – for those of you still paying attention, Roe v Wade goes away. I’m personally not a fan of Roe v Wade, but for many of the folks reading this, I just got your attention…

    This is about more than you can possibly fathom – an Amendment which protects my right to go to church also protects your right to post, write, say and/or read whatever you would like; an Amendment which protects my right to choose to wear, or not wear, a mask also protects your right to do what you do with your body. You have the right to kill so that your life will not be inconvenienced; my right to wear, or not wear, a mask seems pretty insignificant in comparison… This is a big deal!

    Please look this stuff up- don’t be a parrot! Think for yourself! Stop the fear! Stop spreading fear! Open up that mind of yours and don’t just look for information to perpetuate your existing prejudices! Do Not Take My Word For Any Of This! Do Your Own Research! The Truth Is Out There…
