Moving the goalpost: Los Angeles County may stay locked down through August

Los Angeles County has a population of more than 10 million people. As of May 12, they had 33,180 confirmed cases of Wuhan virus which includes 1,613 deaths. You do the math.

Yet even with these extremely small numbers, County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said the stay at home order will “with all certainty” be extended possibly until July or August, according to Fox News.

The good doctor said the following, “Our hope is that by using the data we’d be slowly able to lift restrictions over the next three months. But without widely available therapeutic testing for the coronavirus or rapid at-home testing versions that would allow people to test themselves daily, it seems unlikely that restrictions would be completely eased.

Gov. Newsom issued the mandatory stay at home order in California on March 19. The goal was to “flatten the curve” together and “bend the curve.”

Whatever that means.

Two months later and less than .004 percent of the Los Angeles County population has been confirmed to have Wuhan virus and has an even lower percentage of deaths.

Way to “use the data” move the goalpost.

I live here & feel more trapped than usual (many have been trapped here since the Obama recession/”recovery” due to our homes being under water for near a decade—then, there was not walking away fr yrs invested in a job so we could finally retire w/SOME income for our old age, & get out…, even if we retire, we still can’t get out.… Read more »

On May 1, 2020, thousands in Los Angeles joined other protests across America against the lockdown:

But since Los Angeles and the population-heavy coastal California are dominated by Democrats, protests won’t change the minds of tyrannical mayors, counties and Gov. Gavin Newsom. Never knew Democrat voters are so docile, like compliant sheep being led to slaughter.

Cuomo just extended the lockdown in New York until June 13th. So let’s face it: The lockdown will NOT end, and Trump seems to be missing in action. So what do we do? Excellent question. I do not expect to be able to go to Confession or Mass ever again. I do not expect to earn pre-lockdown ever again. I do not expect to ever be free from debt, or to be free, ever again. I do expect, however, Jesus to Help me through this if I call upon Him. So let us uncuck ourselves. THIS IS IT. The Cabal… Read more »
