Dr. Phil, psychologist, on the Ingraham Angle said, and I’m paraphrasing:
“There’s no x-ray for depression or anxiety. There’s a tipping point where the problems of staying in lock up at home create more death and destruction in time than the virus itself. Poverty kills more people.
The fallout from this shut down will last for years as people’s lives are being destroyed. A perfect storm of isolation and loneliness will cause people to suffer from heart disease and dementia. A paradoxical effect that will destroy more lives if you keep them home.
Seniors’ bodies will start to break down during a lock up. They need to protect themselves and do what they believe in. People are ingrained to protect themselves not hide in a cave.
Children staying home without school are suffering too. Parents aren’t trained to teach school. Parents are over stressed trying to teach their children and put food on the table as well as work from home.”
The likes of Doctors Fauci and Birx are clueless to the psychology effects on people nor do they care. They care about their specific scientific “field of expertise” but not the economy nor psychology. Thank you Dr. Phil for swallowing your pride and going on FOX to relay this message. He also went on to say that we probably shouldn’t have done the lock up in the first place; but now that were here, it needs to end. It will do more harm than prevention.
Thank you President Trump for the Three Phase Guideline for reopening of America. It was the best news I’ve heard in months. It was genius and timely. It made my day. I was losing hope in America. Let’s pray that the governors will put politics aside and implement these guidelines in a timely manner. These guidelines were specific enough yet left room for states’ particular needs and concerns for the governors to interpret. I heard Jacksonville, Florida, opened their beaches today with proper social distancing. Little by little the governors will start to allow places to open up in stages. It’s great.
If the governors ignore this Three Phase Guideline and plead for a vaccine first like I heard last night on CNN, we’ll know that they’re just being political and irrational as vaccines take months, if not years, to test. Trump will have to intervene if they don’t follow them. That’s his job. Buck stops at his desk.
This could become the “Battle of Red States versus Blue States” to see which are more successful recovering from both the pandemic crisis and economic downfall. Gov. Cuomo is already whining that he needs more money from the Feds for testing and Pelosi says the guidelines are too vague. That either means she’s not smart enough to comprehend them or just had to say something negative. She’s never had a kind word for Trump.
We are at war now and need the weapons at hand now, not two years from now. Let’s get out of lock up and get moving again for the sake of our mental health.
