It’s beginning to look a lot like lockdowns,

Everywhere you go.

Take a look at the grocery store shelves. They’re emptying once again.

With Xs and lines that tell you where to go.

It’s beginning to look a lot like lockdowns.

Masks in every store

But the ugliest sight to see is the media that will be

Lying on every score.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a bad feeling of deja vu right about now. The media is filled with stories about Covid outbreaks and the “new variable.” On every network, serious-looking doctors hope for their five minutes of fame as they discuss why you should wear masks that don’t work and get shots that don’t work.

There are personal stories, too. One of my best friends was shocked when her fiance came home with a positive diagnosis. Another friend told me that half of her grandaughter’s 3rd grade class was out with Covid. My next-door neighbor has it. My daughter’s friend has it.

All that being said, the purpose of this article isn’t to scare you about all the sick people. Sick people happen, and contagious illnesses happen. We all know how to better our chances of not becoming sick and how to take care of ourselves if we’re ill.

But some things are outside of our control.

Things like government mandates, lockdowns, and the ensuing hysteria. Things like being lied to at every turn. (Masks don’t work! Just kidding, you HAVE to wear masks! Two weeks to stop the spread! This shot will protect you!)

If you look at the patterns that preceded the first lockdown, we’re seeing almost identical intensity in the ramp-up of warnings, spreading mask mandates, and other restrictions that led up to it. This article isn’t about whether or not this is right or wrong. It’s about getting prepared before the general public empties the shelves.

I strongly advise you to get prepped right now and make a plan on how you intend to handle it if this comes to pass. This warning is not a prediction – no crystal ball here! It’s a comparative analysis of the circumstances surrounding previous lockdowns. I’m big on patterns. By examining patterns, you can often deduce what’s coming next.

Whether you agree with lockdowns or not, you will most likely be affected by them or by whatever other draconian measures the government takes to “protect” us while simultaneously destroying the economy, the supply chain, and small businesses.

Use what you’ve learned about lockdowns.

This isn’t our first rodeo or even our second. That means we have some experience under our belts that can help us be even better prepared if another round of restrictions comes to pass.

We may not have full-on lockdowns again, but you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll face some type of restrictions in the not-so-distant future. Why would a government give up on something that worked so well to seize power and redistribute wealth the last time around?

Think about what you’ve learned and ask yourself the following questions.

What do you wish you’d done differently?

It’s easy to play quarterback after the game is done, but this exercise isn’t about beating yourself up. It’s about learning from your experience.

  • Is there anything you wish you’d done differently?
  • What food did you run out of the fastest?
  • Were there non-food supplies you didn’t think to buy?
  • Was there anything that broke, and you didn’t have the necessary tools or supplies to repair it?
  • About what item did you think, “Dang, I wish I had XXXXXX?”
  • Were there people who hunkered down with you who made things difficult or unpleasant? How can you make it better with those folks in the future? And will you even want them to come over next time?
  • Are there things you could have prepared to keep your kids or other family members more content?

Ask yourself these questions while you’ve got some time to sit and contemplate the lockdown. The things you wish you’d done differently are going to be very important things to address for the future.

What are the things you were satisfied with?

Luckily, we all probably had more successes than failures in this lockdown, so think about the successes. Here are a few examples of some things that may have worked well for you.

  • You had enough in your emergency fund to cover any shortfalls.
  • You were able to make tasty, nutritious, and filling meals from your supplies.
  • You didn’t need to leave the house for X amount of time for groceries.
  • You and your family bonded and enjoyed spending this time together.
  • You discovered your group worked really well together.
  • You did something productive with your time at home.

So, for you, what were the things that worked, and how can you replicate those things in the future?

Make some notes.

Go over the two lists you’ve made and start a third list of the things you either need to buy or need to do before the next time there’s a lockdown. Using the examples above:

  • Get more ingredients for your favorite meals.
  • Restock your pantry so you can avoid the pitfall of missing ingredients at the store for a couple of months.
  • Get a larger quantity of the things you ran out of first.
  • Get any needed tools and repair materials.
  • Grab multiples of the things you may have forgotten, like shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, etc.
  • Get some things to stash away for future entertainment purposes.
  • Figure out how to extricate yourself from partnerships that didn’t work.
  • For partnerships that did work, make sure they’re on the same page for the next time around.
  • Do an inventory of supplies so you can replenish the things you’ve used.

This is something that will take longer than 15-20 minutes at the kitchen table. Really spend some time being thorough with regard to this self-analysis.

Look at your budget.

Millions of Americans saw dramatic changes in their incomes over the past months. This is an important factor in future preparations.

If you’re just barely managing to pay your bills, you may have difficulty stocking up for Round 2. If this is the case, you’ll need to take a close look at your budget.

This is the time to reduce your output as much as possible so you can replenish your home for the future.

What should you get for the next set of lockdowns and shortages?

Aside from the things you’ve determined above that you need, there are some other things you may want to get for the second wave of lockdowns. Think about the things that ran out first and the things that had purchase limits. when you see them back on shelves, do some stocking up:

  • Toilet paper (the gold bars of the coronavirus pandemic!)
  • Paper towels
  • Lysol wipes
  • Paper plates
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant cleaners
  • Bleach
  • Flour
  • Yeast
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Meat
  • Canned goods
  • Dry foods like pasta and rice
  • Cough medicine with an expectorant
  • Cold and flu medicine
  • Ibuprofen
  • Tylenol
  • Vitamin C

If you store them properly, all of these items will serve you well in the future, even if this article is totally wrong and there is never another lockdown. They’ll help you to be ready for all manner of emergencies, not just mandated self-quarantines.

Make sure you have the following medical items, too so you can monitor yourself and your family:

  • Pulse oximeter – these became nearly impossible to acquire for a while
  • Touchless thermometer
  • N95 masks (if you ever want to leave the house, you may be required to mask up – even if you refuse to wear a mask, if your child is injured or sick, and needs to see a doctor, you’d be forced to abide by the rules there)

Another issue we ran into with shortages was appliances such as chest freezers and refrigerators. They couldn’t be had for love or money after a few months into the last crisis. Parts for repairing central heating and air systems were scarce. There were long waits for many automotive parts, too. If you have a major household or automotive component that needs repair (or will soon) if you can afford it, you may want to be proactive about that. Other shortages included computers, computer cords, tablets, headphones, and other devices for working or schooling from home.

When should you start getting supplies for the second wave?

Think back to when the outbreak began to come to the public eye back in 2020. It only took two days for the shelves to become nearly bare. Here are some pictures as a reminder. It would be pretty foolish to wait until the rest of the country becomes aware, and there’s another run on things, leaving the media to scold preppers for hoarding.

Of course, it wasn’t preppers doing the “hoarding.” We already had our stuff weeks, months, or even years ago.

My advice is to start replenishing your supplies immediately. Take a look at your lists and begin fulfilling them as soon as you can.

You don’t have to buy these things all at once. But start now. Grab a couple of items and put them back. Do this every time you are out. If money isn’t tight, buy one of everything on your list that you might reasonably need when you’re out.

The supply chain never completely bounced back after the last time around. Think about anything you might need to repair or replace, and if you can afford it, get the parts and items you may need.

Mentally preparing for the next lockdown

Something that is potentially even more important than your physical preparations is the mental ones.

Did you find yourself reeling in shock that it happened? Were you depressed or anxious? Lonely or isolated? Understand first that all those feelings are completely normal during a time period of dramatic change. You’re human, and you’re allowed to have feelings. When there’s so much uncertainty, it can be difficult to prepare for the future. It’s the ability to move past these feelings and still accomplish the things that need to be done that is important. A lot of people have suffered problems with their mental health during the past few years, and being a prepper doesn’t exclude you from a normal reaction to prolonged stress.

Think also about the personalities you encountered within your group. Obviously, you’re not going to kick your bratty teen out of the house the next time there’s a quarantine, but the involvement of certain people is optional. Some folks really surprise us (unpleasantly) with the way they behave under pressure.

Other things you may want to do before the next lockdown

The following items are miscellaneous tasks you may want to undertake. Most of them will be effective not only in a lockdown scenario but also during other types of emergencies.

I’ve established care with The Wellness Company. They are a network of doctors who will prescribe the medications you need, regardless of popular media opinion. A membership is only $10 a month and I find it to be very worthwhile. You can also get medical exemptions from the doctors there if you believe that certain mandates may be bad for your health.

You may have also noticed things in your outer circle that were unsettling. I wrote more about the different kinds of people you may have encountered – friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc. – during the lockdown. You should take some of the time you have between now and the next lockdown to assess these folks a little bit more closely. Pay strict attention to the things they say and do once this is over. Do they “joke” about coming to your place? Are they spending frivolously? Did they learn a lesson and decide to get better prepared? This will tell you a lot about them and let you know if you need to begin quietly distancing yourself from them.

If you weren’t happy with where you took shelter during this period of lockdown, examine the reasons why. We were in an apartment that didn’t have a place for a garden, and there were a few issues that would make the house fairly easy to break into if someone was interested in doing so.

When you examine this, you may need to make a major decision – is it time to relocate? Or you may simply need to make some adjustments to the place where you are, like a padlock on the gate, a new fence, security film on the windows, etc. This article has some tips on home security.

If your home needs some repairs, do it while supplies are easy to find and while mandates don’t make it difficult to get someone out to your place. Our dryer died during the first lockdown, but we weren’t crazy about the idea of some repair person stomping through the apartment, potentially seeing our stockpile of canned goods. If you have an appliance giving its last gasp, this might be a good time to replace it. The better maintained your home is, the less likely it is that you’ll have a repair emergency during the lockdown.

Take the opportunity to get any services performed that were needed before or during the lockdown. If there is a medical procedure you require, go ahead and get it done. Many patients saw their treatments delayed for months to prevent them from possibly coming into contact with COVID patients. Get everyone a dental exam and get your pets to the vet if necessary. If you need to have your house sprayed or gutters cleaned, get all of that stuff done as soon as you can.

Work toward greater self-reliance. Get those chickens you’ve been thinking about. Plant a garden and set up cold frames to extend your growing season. Get yourself well-positioned for an uncertain future.

Prepare your family

Your family may want to live in a rosy world in which this was an unpleasant interlude and now it’s over. It’s tempting to let them have that happiness, but it’s a mistake not to add at least a small dose of reality. If it hasn’t crossed their mind that the future could hold more lockdowns, it’s going to be a stunning blow when (or if) it happens again.

You also don’t want to meet pushback when you try to replenish supplies. Consider reminding them, “Remember the toilet paper apocalypse? We don’t want to run into that problem again!” or “Weren’t you happy we had this when we were stuck at home?”

If you see the situation is beginning to look like you might be facing another lockdown soon, casually mention it to family members. Don’t terrify them, but begin gently making them aware that the situation could change quickly.

On the other hand, you may find that family members who previously thought you were a little bit nuts are now far more on board with preparedness. This might be a great time to start teaching them more.

The time to prepare is right now

Here’s a great article written by other preppers who share what they learned during the first lockdown.

I may be wrong. I hope I am. I don’t see how our economy will withstand the restrictions we’ve gone through before. We’re still in terrible shape from the rules that were forced upon us in 2020 and beyond.

But the signs are all there. The urgency is increasing. The fear of those prone to hysteria is palpable. The best thing you can do is be ahead of the crowds. I also think we’re going to see even more stress, increased violence, and complete desperation for many families that are at the ends of their ropes. As well, this time around, we’re going to see a lot more pushback. Many of us do not want to participate in this again, and we’re done being forced to follow pointless rules.

What are you expecting?

I’m really not looking forward to the prospect of arrows on the floor at my local grocery store or frightened people skittering around the store with only their wild eyes visible above their masks. Fear is the biggest contagion there is and while it may not directly kill you, it’s fear that has allowed the government to run amok and destroyed lives.

Do you expect to see another lockdown soon? What warning signs have you on high alert? How are you preparing? Are you making any changes?

Let’s talk about it in the comments section.

  • I loved this article and all the links, thanks. I really don’t think that there will be another lockdown but possibly scares and resulting shortages. I can see folks becoming somewhat panicked and possibly vicious reliving their fear over the shortages from the last lockdown. For me, before, I kinda prepped for three months but then used it all up, ran out and restocked. I had ran out of everything and tried to go shopping right when the last lockdown hit. I survived but it got ugly. Now, I Always have a rotating three months stockpile. I just got back from Aldi’s and Walmart yesterday and will do another run next weekend. I save up for this and it saves me money in the long run. I always stock up on sales. I live in an one room efficiency w/practically no storage. If I can find space, anyone can. On a happy note, I discovered you and the Organic Prepper and The Frugalite during lockdown. You have changed my life for the better. I was always a Tightwad Gazette follower, when I had the kid, but I let things go. Thankyou so much for what you do. You have made such a difference in my life. Namely, much less fear. I learn, make changes, adapt and move on.

  • In the throwback article on TOP, Selco said a sense of humor was critical when TSHTF. Melissa did a super funny breakdown of the meaning of the name of the new variant-“pirola”- on her and Aaron’s YT channel Truthstream Media.

    One of the biggest improvements to our preps I’ve made in the last three years is the strengthening of my network of neighbors and trusted associates for mutual benefit. My other preps are as solid as I can get them in an inflationary economic environment.

    Do I believe another lockup is coming? I don’t know, but every cell in my body is telling me “something” is just around the corner, and it will be big, and there won’t be enough “stimmy” to make folks that feel like staying home and ordering Uber eats forget about how much less food is getting delivered compared to the last time. In fact, judging by the neglectful and contemptuous way we’ve been treated in the USA from Maui to East Palestine Oh, I sincerely doubt there will even be any financial assistance next go’round. Hope I’m wrong but, I doubt I am.

  • When the masses refuse to comply this time, they will find another contagion to take it’s place. My concern is the number of unvaxxed illegal kids (their adults fault) invading the schools nationwide that are bringing in diseases we thought eradicated in US. Small pox and TB come to mind. Those 2 diseases alone could be Gates/WEF/WHO dream population reducers…

    • I don’t think there are a lot of children of legal or illegal immigrants who are not vaccinated. From all appearances, they seem to care more for their kids than say what I call US of A white trash. Vax rates tend to be higher in the less fortunate parts of society.

      • Actually unvaxxed rates were higher among blacks and those who were higher educated, namely those with PhD.
        That would be from actual studies and not what you think or appearances.
        Your disconnection from reality is quite amazing.

    • There’s no smallpox left anywhere in the world. Monkeypox and yellow pox are in the same family, but usually milder.

      The US has never routinely vaxxed for TB. Many countries have, but Europe stopped using the BCG routinely because of its high rate of adverse reactions.

      I wouldn’t worry about that. Mexico and other Latin American countries have high vaccination rates among the poor. In addition, what VPDs are you worried about? For most, it’s better in the long run to just get the diseases and permanent or long lasting immunity. If you reduce vaccination, you get less allergic and autoimmune disease, and less autism. For tetanus and polio, and for daycares, Hib and pneumococcal disease, if heritage children are vaxxed, they’re protected.

  • It’s not like last time at all. If anyone thinks it is then they have learned nothing. Even the discussion of compliance infuriates me. Enjoy our freedom that my men and yours died for. However mislead we have been. Peace until there isn’t.

  • During the worst of the shortages, I found that where and when I shopped made a huge difference. I still have wipes and stuff leftover from that time period. lol. I have a plus membership to Sam’s club…costs more, but I find I buy enough there that the money back for every $500 spent pretty much evens out the extra cost, plus I get early access and free shipping. So I would go during the week in early hours and every time I saw certain products (like wipes) I bought them. I get a lot of my perishable groceries there, so I usually go every week or two. Sometimes I’d find the stuff people were clamoring for, and sometimes not. But in purchasing it every time I saw it I kept myself and a lot of family stocked in those hard to find things. Sometimes I was able to order things with the free shipping too that I couldn’t get in the store, like TP or canned goods. It was awesome. I kept a friend stocked up on gerber puffs for her kid when she couldn’t get them in stores, saved her money and was even able to have it shipped to her house (for free). I think other club stores have similar programs but I don’t know the details. But I would say these membership benefits were probably the biggest factor in my successful shopping during lockdowns, etc. What I found I wasn’t as well prepped for was comfort food and supplies to get projects done around the house. If I thought craft stores, etc. would close again I would think hard about what I might want to be more productive at home and try to obtain those supplies.

  • Thank you for the heads up, Daisy!
    Store shelves look pretty normal in Hawaii so far. I haven’t seen anything much in local MSM, but obviously we have been very consumed with Lahaina situation until very recently.
    I will get toilet paper and yeast, and maybe more frozen beef. I might also get a bidet spray (which I thought long and hard about last time, and got spray bottles and squirt bottles instead). My stocks are pretty good on the rest, but I have a list for how my work would need to shift again and materials to bring home etc.
    Looking forward to some gardening time if it happens. Going to get more quail.

  • Of course there will be something, election season is among us. They saw how easy it was to fear porn us & control us they will never give up. They are now even more evil, corrupt & sinister.

    I may be the odd duck but I really did not experience a whole lot of discomfort of food supply since I already have such food restrictions that my aisles of food were pretty well stocked lol! I laughed because I thought, yeah no one wants this healthier GF/DF stuff anyways….I’m good.

    I already had TP stocked (Amazon 80 rolls for $55) for a year as well as cleaning supplies since I have a cleaning business but it did force me to think outside of the box for empty bottles, disinfectants & sanitizers, etc. I am going to use alcohol or hydrogen peroxide with eucalyptus & tea tree essential oils to disinfect anything here on out. I have at least 1000 rags for cleaning & don’t use PT to clean with (costly & wasteful IMO). I don’t use bleach nor ammonia (now we know those aren’t good for our own immunity anyways) so I honestly did not understand much of the pandemonium 3 years ago on food & supplies.

    I am finding myself always thinking about how to stock up on things when I can’t/don’t eat the majority of things that last for years…hence my constant dilemma. I love Daisy’s ingenuity but struggle on how I can stock up for SHTF in my particular situation.

    I will be curious if the Walmart by me will attempt their stupidity again this year. I am in the country & I suspect the majority of people here will exercise their ‘redneckness’ of which we are proud of. 😉 Fool me once…

  • Of course it’s coming!
    The fear porn by MSM is out there and then comes the force, stay home save lives & jab yourself.
    The elites have studied & learned from mass formation psychosis of round 1, and round 2 will be even more insidious!
    Hope the sheeple 🐑 wake up & nip this in the bud We Will Not Comply before it morphs into another messed up conflagration!

    Remember election year is coming, so how do you steal more elections? drop boxes and mail in ballots for all.
    It worked so well first time 😡

  • I also bought a colloidal silver generator for $250 to make my own silver for immunity & disinfecting. It has been worth every penny spent. I will never buy another toxic disinfectant again.

    I guess my over the top sensitivities/allergies has taught me a thing or two.

    • Great idea! I have one too. The one I got is from The Silver Edge. I’ve been using it for about a year and it works great. Very high quality.

    • Hi Jennifo, what CS generator did you get? I have a SilverPuppy and like it so much that I got a second one for backup. I also have an HOCL generator to make that substance for sanitizing. CS is great for sanitizing US, but I’m not sure how well it works as a general sanitizer. i also got some dry powder to make Hydrogen Peroxide with, as the liquid we buy in stores has a finite shelf life that degrades with time. And of course I have pool shock to make Chlorine Bleach solutions with, since Clorox also degrades over time. Enjoy your CS generator, and do you have Silver wire to use with it? In a pinch you can use a .999 or .9999 fine silver coin if necessary.

      • I do have a back up wire for it. I’ve learned over the years it’s not always about dousing the crap out of a virus or germ. It’s about cleaning up our indoor air, stop eating garabge foods and repairing my gut.
        To disinfect everything so thoroughly does not allow our microbiome (gut lining/immunities) to rid of viruses, parasites, germs.
        So when I’m in public I do still spray a Walmart (the worst! Lol) cart handle with alcohol before I use, etc.
        I’m not as over the top with everything else now. Truly reducing the parasites and garbage already in me has had more benefit than heavy antibacterials.

        A life saver has been SinuMed nose cleaner/spray. I use it every time I come home or if working in theyard. The saline helps to destroy any germs or viruses in my nose before it goes into my respiratory system.

  • Should of gotten the bidet sooner. Saves a lot on the TP, the septic system and a lot more sanitary.

    At the beginning, being told to social distance even with friends visiting or even family, we stood around for about two minutes and all agreed, this is stupid. After that, we would have friends over or go to their place as normal.

    Been seeing more calls for mask mandates. Was a lot of fun to watch Fauci go on CNN, expecting a softball interview but got questioned hard (shockingly for CNN) about his stance on mask mandates and the anchor brought up more than a few studies showing how masks are all but useless.

    If we see mandates again, it is going to be fun to see the differences this time vs the first time. The mask vs the un-masked. Will it come to physical violence in the grocery stores? Watch and see.

  • About the only things I might need are N95 masks and even more cat food.
    I have almost enough chicken feed for a year, but have been ordering extra each month from Azure Standard.
    Also stocking up on chocolate😁!
    Maybe get some solar lights in case of power outages.
    Fortunately my doctor and my vet stayed open through the last round of lockdowns, and the first thing our new governor did after being sworn in was eliminate the lockdown put in place by the previous administration.
    Been prepping to one degree or another since about 1978, so I have stored food and equipment. God willing, I’ll be okay.

    • N95’s ? WHO TOLD YOU THEY ARE THE KING/QUEEN OF MASKS? Yes, I thought they were, but when tested, they were NO more efficient than any of the others. In actuality, NONE of them are going to protect us b/c the particles are sooo small they can fit right thru them ALL…
      Yes, that cat would need food haha…
      White chocolate is better for you that the brown and less fattening…
      Lanterns and candles do a good job of lighting in power outages…
      Gotta get the rotors fixed soon in my car and my motorized scooter fixed and that’s pretty much it for me. Stay healthy by keeping your immune system up to par…Get your blood work done so you’ll know what your numbers are lol… Stay safe…

  • yep think you’re right again, Daisy…..DONT FORGET TO STOCK FOR THE PETS!!! some people seem to forget that, there are sooo many poor pets that have been given up, turned loose, etc because people dont prepare for their survival as well as their own. cat litter, food, toys, etc. IDs, microchipped, spayed/neutered, and so on. have seen too many animals left behind during emergencies, storms, floods, etc. or people cant feed and care for them anymore. so folks, if you have animals, PLEASE start stocking for them also! they too are family!!! always learn new things from you Daisy, keep up the good work, glad you’re back home, and still watching out for us….God bless

  • Bawahahahahaha. Close??? Bull$hit!!
    I didn’t close my Mom & Pop Shop for WuFlu 1.0. Do you really think I’m going to close this time for WuFlu 2.0 Electric Boogaloo? Plus I live in the Free-State of Florida, were ANYTHING the Marxist Party says automatically gets the middle finger. I still have supplies from WuFlu 1.0 plus it’s Hurricane Season in Florida so I’m stocked better than most people.
    I’ll do exactly what I did before. NOTHING.
    No Shutdown
    No Masks
    No Social Distancing
    No OCD with hand sanitizer
    and NO Vaccine……EVER.

    • Good for you.
      I want to print flyers and a newsletter to show support for small local businesses and help them survive the next psy opp of hysteria. I believe it’s more about crushing the middle class than anything else.
      This is NOT an election year. Not everything is about Trump.
      Though he and his fanboys/groupies would disagree.
      I refuse to shop where masks are required. No quarreling. I’ll just leave.
      Oxygen is good for health. We need to breathe. Funny how people deny what used to be understood as common sense back in 2019. SMH
      “Live by Lies” is the motto of the New Normal.

    • Hummm, you sound determined. Sounds like you have your thoughts together… I lived in Fl. for 1/2 my life. Loved it, but the storms and expense and not speaking fluent Spanish and the sinkholes just ran us out…We did not let #1 bother us much at all… At first masks until I learned they do us no good anyway… Did not social distance, We were using sanitizer and washing our hands before any of that came about and I am allergic to all vaccines anyway… You’ll be fine this time too hopefully, but you knew that didn’t you? Hahaha…A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and you seem bright enough… More of a leader than a follower it seems…

    • The only reason you can brag is because of what state you live in. Folks tried to stay open here and got fined into bankruptcy. Thousands of dollars a day breaks mom & pop businesses.

  • I will add a few extras I’m not quite up to snuff on, but that is it.
    We didn’t follow their BS rules last time, and we will not this time either.
    When are people going to wake up? It was never about health. It is about control.

  • I like the comment about making your own colloidal silver. It will help with bacteria.
    Also, there are a couple of posts from another blogger about using a nebulizer if you get covid. (or for any lung issues.) I’ve included links to those. I bought a nebulizer (they aren’t too expensive either) But you need to get the ‘table’ one, not the smaller hand sized one as it isn’t strong enough to get it to your lungs..

  • People I know won’t comply to lockdowns or masking. If we see the plexiglass go up in the stores then we know they are planning lockdowns at churches and schools. I have stocked up on Tylenol, Flonase nasal spray and saline nasal sprays. Vit C.D and zinc other supplements. C. Booster is being advertised along with mRNA flu shots.

    • Yes, the flu shots with the “jumk” in them are coming, if they aren’t already here. How many doctors even read the papers that come with the shots?
      My guess is not many.
      I try passing the word, but don’t want an FBI Swat raid. (And yes, they are happening.)

    • Be very cautious with the Flonase. My Otolaryngologist was concerned with my usage and refused to Rx because of the risk of Glaucoma.
      He was too late, though. There are non steroidal nasal sprays you might try.

      • Agree! Colloidal silver spray works as good and better. Flonase gives nosebleeds over time because it thins the mucus lining

    • You did not mention ivermectin
      the apple flavor horse dewormer from tractor supply is just fine for human consumption.
      The same standards apply for animal medicines as to human
      just have to figure out the dose based on your body weight ivermectin is very forgiving and a 200 pound person can take the entire tube made for a 1200 pound horse and not experience an overdose.
      However, do your own research!!!
      There are several herbal remedies that relieve congestion and clear the bronchial passages of mucus
      one is the common plant known as rabbit tobacco.
      I’ve tried it and it works. I’ve given it to friends, and they were amazed at how quickly it worked.
      Once you become familiar with this plant, you’ll notice a lot of it grows by the side of the road.
      It is very difficult to miss identifier and don’t get run over while you’re collecting it.
      Now is the time to be picking it
      Do your research the encyclopedia of herbal medicine by Andrew Chevallier is a very valuable resource. In addition to a vegetable garden, your flowerbeds should be full of herbal plants.
      A lot of good ones are probably already in your spice rack.
      Strictly medicinal seeds is a wonderful resource for the seeds.

      • Thanks for the important info, Farmer. Especially the part about not poisoning yourself if you miscalculate and use too much Ivermectin. My girlfriend has a horse and likewise used Horse Ivermectin to snap out of COVID fairly quickly. She also recommends the Apple Flavor. It’s still available on Amazon, but I didn’t see any Apple Flavor there, on a recent search. Probably need to visit Tractor Supply like you do, or your local feed store.

      • Ivermectin was approved for human use before it was approved for livestock. Something the leftist media only has admitted recently (after their “it’s horse paste” campaign of 2021).

  • Stocking N 95 is unwise. They are no help with viruses, and are themselves a threat to health. Many are impregnated with Graphene and they should not be worn for any reason.

    • If you have to wear a mask very long, N95’s are somewhat unpleasant and reduce your oxygen intake. I use Surgical Masks which are a lot more comfortable and will work as well as the N95’s against aerosols carrying the virus. Surgeons and Dentists use them. So I used the surgical masks at seemingly appropriate times during the last “pandemic” and tossed them after each use, as they are relatively cheap.

    Three of the horsemen are already riding: ==> “But in those days, FOLLOWING
    [AFTER or POST] THAT DISTRESS [TRIBULATION], “’the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; ……..(Rev. 6:12; Mt. 24:29; Mk. 13:24)

    THE RAPTURE WILL HAPPEN BETWEEN REV. 6:12,13 AND REV. 6:16,17 (at the 6th seal). That also means there absolutely can NOT be any rapture beforehand to spare us from the first 5 seals.

    The first 3 seals have been opened.

    SEAL #1: (Rev 6:2) Rider on the WHITE HORSE was given a crown (Corona) & a bow (Toxon, from which we get our word poison- POINTED OBJECT WITH POISON – like a needle?

    SEAL #2- SUDDEN DEATH SYNDROME: Depopulation Jab (Rev 6:4) fiery red horse: peace taken from earth and men slaying each other with this poisonous “toxon” (bow) jab;

    SEAL #3 is now BLACK HORSE (Rev. 6:6) (hyperinflation & scarcity) to squeeze us to the MARK OF THE BEAST – COMING SOON (Consequences for taking it- (Revelation 14:9-12)

    ==> Let us turn to the Lord while we can find him. When we come to J-esus in humble repentance (depart from our sins, which are dragging us to hell/, and ask for forgiveness; Mt. 12:41, Jonah 3:5) and believe on him, we are born again and have salvation. A good prayer to pray to come to initial salvation is “Lord, have mercy on me a sinner”. (Luke 18:13) Show our repentance/ by our deeds (Acts 20:22) and submit to Jesus, a faith that obeys and endures to the end (Matthew 10:22, Hebrews 5:9) There is no once saved always saved.

  • I don’t care if people mask or don’t mask. It may or may not be a good idea to get a new variant and at least some natural immunity. Long Covid (which I have) seems to get worse with every infection.

    I looked at the Cochrane study linked. Masks work, and I wanted to see what it thought was evidence that they didn’t. It was a meta-analysis, looked at many studies, but just said that issues of compliance and subjectivity prevented real conclusions.

    The Covid virus is as a minimum just a little smaller than the flu virus, and as a maximum, larger. Masks work because virus-containing droplets land on the surface of the mask and can’t pass through. If the virus is aerosolized, the smallest might pass through, but most would be stopped to the same extent as the flu virus. In 2020 and 2021, the years when most people masked to prevent Covid, flu deaths plummeted to extremely low.

    • Here’s the problem with your study. Viruses travel through air, not through water vapor from your exhalations. They tried to push that BS back in 2020, and it is a lie. That’s been proven again and again. I take anything from the CDC and JAMA with an enormous grain of salt (too big for a mask pore).

      Masks did absolutely nothing to prevent the Rona. You know what did? Staying home if you are sick. Protecting those with weaknesses making them susceptible to the virus. Cleaning your hands. Not licking strangers. That’s about it. Not social distancing. Not masks. NOT FEAR. It is the damned flu.

  • Unless you’re planning on painting your house with a spraygun, masks are useless. Even less than useless are “surgical masks.” They’re fine for bacteria, but China flu is not a bacterial infection.

    Folks, the China flu virus is passed through the air, not through your water vapor. Stop surrendering to fear porn. Keep yourself clean (wash hands), if you feel sick then stay home, protect the infirm.

    The vax is useless, and in fact has led to an increase in blood clots in perfectly healthy people. Also shown is that most new cases of the latest “variant” are from people who have been vaxxed and boosted. My neighbor is up to date on her boosters and has had the Rona twice.

    Also, if you love your children DO NOT give them the “COVID-19 vaccine” in any form. The flu rarely affects children, and has led to an increase in child death.

    Thank God I live in a state that won’t fall for this fear and madness again. I’m just going to say no! You should, too.
