A plague, I say, a man made pandemic that will whip us all out, O my goodness.
The Time to ponder
How this happens, and why this happen? What will the future hold? What will we do and what will 2021 look like and beyond is yet to be determined. 2020 was a year like no other. Starting with

Is this all a Conspiracy caused by the US Democratic party and world leaders to remove President Donald Trump and his new way of leadership led by the Russian?

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that the 2019-2020 season involved two waves of activity and moderate severity with an estimated 38 million people falling ill, 18 million visiting a health care provider, 400,000 patients hospitalized and 22,000 lives lost. That being said, case counts do tend to run higher due to the fact that not everybody gets diagnosed for flu and cases/deaths are invariably missing from official totals.”
Could this all be – “Up to 650 000 people die of respiratory diseases linked to seasonal flu each year.
Have we entered into the twilight zone?

Talk about how the rich got richer. Billionaires’ wealth rises to $10.2 trillion amid COVID crisis. Billionaire wealth equates to a fortune almost impossible to spend over multiple lifetimes of absolute luxury. At the same time, more than 40 million Americans filed for unemployment. With tens of millions of Americans out of a paycheck and the stock market plummeting by 37% in March, how is it that the rich have continued getting richer?
Wealth concentration now is as high as in 1905, this is something billionaires are concerned about. The problem is the power of interest on interest – that makes big money bigger and, the question is to what extent is that sustainable and at what point will society intervene and strike back?”
The fact that billionaire wealth had increased so much at a time when hundreds of millions of people around the world are struggling could lead to public and political anger. “Is there a risk they may be singled out by society? Yes,” he said. “Are they aware of it? Yes.”
The super-rich were able to benefit from the crisis because they had “the stomach” to buy more company shares when equity markets around the world were crashing. Global stock markets have since rebounded making up much of the losses. The shares in some technology companies – which are often owned by billionaires – have risen very sharply.
