If you live anywhere near Chicago/Seattle/Portland, you’re asking me, how much longer will it take for them to come to my neighborhood? Over the last two days alone in Chicago, 63 people were shot, 12 fatally. In Seattle, twelve police officers were hurt in violent protests. And in Portland, the Police Association office was burned. What a weekend.
Listen, the clock is ticking for you to do everything you can to make you and your family a hard target. In other words, as difficult as possible to damage you or a loved one. Thugs like easy targets.
When you visit my property, the first thing you see isn’t the “Welcome” mat, it’s the “24 Hour Video Surveillance No Trespassing” signs. Visit me at night, and you’ll be lit up like a Christmas tree by motion-sensing spotlights, captured on video, and reminded how I vote by my NRA window sticker. Even in RI it’s legal to open carry my rifle. And I’ve been meticulously counting calories as I add to my food storage supply.
Two words about death rates and masks: volatility and useless. You can see the chart below for death rates, and for masks, if you can breathe then the virus is getting in, and it’s getting out. As Dr. Mercola points out here, surgeons wear masks to keep spittle and bacteria from open wounds— masks do not inhibit viral spread.
The best defense against the virus is heavy air like we’re experiencing here on the east coast. It’s the three H’s: Hazy, Hot, and Humid. Heavy air sinks a virus aerosol like an iceberg does the Titanic. Coastal New England is a great place to be right now, not stuck inside down south in the A/C.
But get this, just as the Weather app warns about “Air Quality” in Boston, the government is opening cooling centers just perfect for spreading a virus. You really can’t make this stuff up. You have the tools at your fingertips to become a hard target. Let’s keep in touch and get through this together: Sign up for my monthly best of in: Survive and Thrive here.
