A few things....

People in the US, always buy guns. Always. It's big sales and actually always has been.
The only time gun sales literally jump through the roofs is when people think the government
might restrict the sales. So, when the media states people in the US are buying guns, it is
laughable because people always buy guns.

Every adult in America received a stimulus check or bank deposit in the amount of $1,200.00.
Those with children, also received in addition, $500.00 per child. If you were a married couple
with three children, your total stimulus was $3,900.00. There is some exception to this such
as a person owing child support. If a person owes $1,200 in child support or more, that person
would not get the stimulus check.

Even if you are retired, such as myself, I received the $1,200.00 stimulus direct deposit.

In addition, if you are unemployed and filed for unemployment, you will receive $600 per
week, in unemployment. I have some friends that received $3,900.00 in stimulus and
the woman works at Walmart and her husband is unemployed receiving $600.00 per week.

The reality is, for many people, they are receiving more than if they were working.

Also, those on SNAP benefits have received more. At least one I know of received almost
twice the allotment as usual. SNAP (food stamps).

Many people in the US live beyond their means. Not everyone of course but many do.
Those that live beyond their means, probably have the toughest go of it during hard times
like these. Hopefully it is a wake up call for them.

I'd hate to have everything some people have and have the worry those people have.

We're not forced to stay in our houses here.

My sister and I went to Walmart today and through McDonalds for a coke.
It was a nice sunny day, not cold, not hot. A lot of people were out and I
should say a lot was at Walmart. We concluded that many were out because
they had got their stimulus deposit and/or stimulus check, plus it being a
beautiful Spring day.

I live in a rural town, so I am in town but I do have yard, front, back, each
side. I sit out back on the deck when the weather is nice enough some times,
drink coffee, grill out, or simply watch the deer, squirrels, rabbits, birds. Some
times I sit out front or on my front porch. I wave at people that walk or drive
by. Here, some people drive by in golf carts. Some drive by on their lawn
mowers. Some times I take Bo (my dog) out walking.

There's lots of places to be outside around here, yet not around anyone else.
There is lakes, rivers, streams, hiking trails, etc.

My sister lives out of town, about ten minute drive from me in a very remote
rural area. Her closest neighbor is her step relatives and they have a lot of
open land where the kids ride their four wheelers. She feeds the deer and
birds, etc.

So for us, it doesn't feel like we are locked in at all. We still do most of what
we do anyway. The only difference is, we wear masks and gloves in Walmart...
and some places are not open such as hair salons. That doesn't bother me
either because I cut my own hair.

There is so much for me to do, right in here at my house that I have not felt
the least bit locked in. Not at all. I've got some fencing I need to paint. I
mow my yard so that is almost a constant chore this time of year. I trim the
shrubs, plant flowers, hand wash the car, got to caulk some windows, and
plenty to do outside. I am still working on cleaning up my office. I tossed a
huge trash bag full of papers and junk away this week. Still more to go thru.
I have two front doors that are white. I plan to paint those. Not sure what
color to paint them but something other than white. There's always clothes
to wash, floors to mop, movies to watch, computer stuff to do. There's hobbies
too, I do jigsaw puzzles.

I don't think it's too difficult on us country folks. People that live in large populated
cities where they live almost on top of each other and their pass time is going to
the zoo, museums, theaters, opera's, etc.....probably has a rough time for them
to stay inside.

"Give me liberty, or give me death!" is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia.

So those wanting to open everything up, will certainly get one or the other.

I may be wrong but I think it stems from people hollering across valleys.

Like today, someone might say 'give me a shout out' referring to get back to me about it
or call me soon. Whereas in the Southern States, even long before telephones, people
would holler across the fields or across the ponds, etc. So I would guess over time, low
lying places became known as 'hollers'.

In the South we use the word 'Holler' often. There are rural areas that have the
name 'Holler' such as a place I have known 'Shot Gun Holler'.

Holler:

hollow noun A small, sheltered valley that usually but not necessarily has a watercourse. The term occurs often in place names, especially informal ones, as Hell's Holler (NC) and Piedy Holler (TN). [ DARE labels this pronunciation holler as “chiefly South, South Midland, especially Southern Appalachians, Ozarks”]

I never understand people can put their vote on him.

TRUMP is FAKE NEWS

I voted for him like many others and I will again. The reason why I voted for
him, like many others, is because we believed he would do more for the country
then Clinton.

Obviously he is not an idiot. He is pretty smart. Much smarter than some people
realize. Also, like I said, America has been in the best condition in many many
years. Our employment rate was almost 0 in comparison to years past.

I realize people in other countries don't realize the entire scope of America or
the politicians here.

Trump does not own news channels. In fact, he is not much of a fan of any of them
when it gets right down to it. He is certainly correct about it, however. Real journalism
is about dead.

In the old days, journalist was sworn to their duty. I guess they don't take that oath
today.

I do read the news through 'Apple' news. I like it rather well because they tend to
pick unbiased news articles. It's best to know your countries constitution and laws.
If you know that, you can better track the realities of news. Not always easy, that
is for sure.

I'm not so sure Trump can make anyone believe anything. :lol: However, he has
in fact done what he said he would do, all but where the Democrat's stopped him.

America was in the greatest shape it has been in, in many years, until this virus came
along. No matter what anyone says or thinks, Trump has proven himself to do what
he said and he has did more for the country then most recent past presidents.

They only believe it if they want to believe it. I think most have enough sense to know
what he said but the fake news and others that want to kill his re-election, is going to
do whatever they can to blow whatever he says out of the water.

What I like about Trump is he does focus on doing what he says. He has done more of
what he has said, than most any other president. He created jobs for the American
people and has focused on bringing jobs back to America. The unemployment rate
was the lowest it had been in many many years. He wanted to build a wall and he
did.

The way Trump talks is odd in one respect but in another respect, people can for
the most part understand him. Not everyone in America has a Masters degree in
Speech. I like that he is open and says what he thinks. There are people that don't
like that.

In regards to his morality, that is something he has to live with, certainly not the
American people. Every time anyone runs for President, roaches crawl out of the
woodwork. Even sleepy Biden has sxx scandals coming out on him.

I do wish we had better candidates that stepped up to the plate. Unfortunately
these days, with all the greed and selfishness, it's difficult to find a true winner.

No he did not.

He did not tell the public to inject disinfectant.

You see, any person that was to say what he actually said, would be ignored.

All the fake news media did was take one portion of what he said, and make
it sound as if he was telling the public to inject disinfectant. He never said that.

He commented on what was already stated by the doctor in the previous video.

You can take it however you want. Democrats will eat it up and the fake news
media will make it sound as if he was telling Americans to go inject themselves
with Lysol. :lol:
