The Ultimate COVID-19 Confidence Test

Last night markets priced in Trump’s death, upon being diagnosed with COVID-19. He is, on paper at least, elderly an overweight, which places him in the high risk quintile. However, he also seems to be strong — at least that’s the persona he likes to give off.

Barreling into what can be considered the most contentious election in US history, nothing is more important than to see Trump recover successfully from COVID-19. It’s way more important than him even winning — because, god forbid anything should happen to him, this fucking country will be vapor locked sealed and the economy will spiral into the greatest calamity you’ve ever known.

It’s one thing a celebrity getting the virus, totally different when someone like Trump gets it.

On the other hand, should he recover from this with no problem — there’s zero chance I am taking the vaccine. I know what you’ll say: ‘but Fly, fly, the vaccine isn’t for you — but the people you could potentially infect.”

Fuck you snowflake — I’m not taking the vaccine. Plus anyway, I don’t like needles. As a matter of fact, I might even have an aversion to them.

Markets were supposed to CRASH, but now it’s more nothing — totally disappointing and I didn’t even want to trade today — because I knew I’d be down. I hadn’t even looked at my portfolio until now and VOILA — down 2%. This is my life now — carrying water, missing out on winners, trading into and thru losers, repeating the process amidst the chop until dispirited.

    I pray that during these distressing times for God’s chosen country that we can all find it in our hearts to support those suffering, through no fault of their own, from needle aversion syndrome. Why are there no programs and subsidies to help these people navigate through this? Perhaps a GoFundMe should be set up for Fly and company.

    On this historic news, Naz has plunged to levels not seen since ….a few days ago. Anyway, I agree with Fly that this could be quite disruptive ..but we won’t know for a week or so just how badly Trump and those around him are affected. Got some 10/9 QQQ puts here …and some expiring today.

    I’ll get the shot as soon as it’s proven safe and effective. Why wouldn’t I?

    Donning one’s tin foil hat, consider:
    Do they want Trump re-installed?
    – are they setting-up a super-hero recovery and sympathy play for him?

    Or do they want rid of him and so will use this as a way to JFK him without suspicion?
    – but why bother, he looked to be on his way to losing anyway?

    Or did he fail to deliver some neocon wet dream and so is being punished …or negotiated with ..as a known cure is withheld?

    Or are things just random – with powerful interested parties just kicking back and letting things unfold?

    I did some investigation, Fly’s family line goes back 100,002 generations.
    Viruses existed throughout that time. Viruses killed descendants, but the generation continued. So Fly’s family is essentially batting: 1,000. That’s 100,002 for 100,002 generationally. Not too shabby.

    Vaccines were invented 2 generations ago. Covid is just another virus, (perhaps created in a bioweapons lab) but ultimately, still just a virus. They got thru 100,000 generations with no vaccines. Chances are, they can make it thru a few more.

    So vaccine?, for my money NFW.

    Bonus!!! Getting a seasonal flu shot increases your chances of getting covid!

    You see, they say they understand this stuff. The reality is; they know alot, but still don’t know fuck.

    Knowing alot about stocks doesn’t mean you can trade.

    Autism was created in the ’30’s. It appears to have been a vaccine experimental mistake. The Dr. who did it, killed himself after he realized what he did. Oopps, sorry future generations; you’re fucked.

    I’m all for science; but these guys are reckless. And some are purposely – doing harm to m/billions. Gates, Fauci …

    I read recently 10,000 have died – solely from covid (w no other issues). But I think the numbers are as reliable as election polls.

    I never got a flu shot and plan to avoid any covid vaccine for the foreseeable future.

    I have a dozen anti-virals for my defense.

    Bill Gates’ father was big in planned parenthood. He thinks there are too many people. His son seems to agree. At some point earth can’t support more people. But these guys have been saying too many for the last 4 billion people.
    Technology has made it possible.

    This is Fauci’s 5th or 6th go round with hyping pandemics. These guys are not for the little guy. The evidence seems overwhelming. – see corbettreport & others

    This was all planned in Event 201.

    PS Sweden – No lockdown & their #’s are better than most countries, some with massive lockdowns.
