The month of April starts out with a day for fools, APRIL FOOL’S DAY. In Alabama some citizens are participating a 100%, at the potential risk of others.

When will people in south Alabama take Covid-19 seriously?

When will people in south Alabama take Covid-19 seriously?

Beaches all across the south part of the state are still packed with people.

Because Alabama is usually dead last in every health category, education and job opportunities.

This is supported by Alabama being first in the nation, when it comes to political corruption.

Some people in our area are convinced that the virus is a hoax designed to dethrone the President.

Others believe in a China conspiracy meant to destabilize the economy.

Others believe this is a flu virus and some will die but that is par.

All of these people have one thing in common. They do not believe in science.

Political corruption, the lack of leadership from the Governor and the general apathy that Alabama citizens seem to share may cost us all.

Be Smart not an April Fool.

Prepare yourself for what may be the most financially stressful time of your life. You have options and resources that will assist you through this period.

A covid-19 economic injury disaster loan for $10,000.00 is available through the Small Business Administration.

In Alabama the virus and politics are a lot alike. Either you educate yourself or you become an APRIL FOOL.

  1. Ripp ,
    Do you REALLY think people are going to imprison themselves for a whole month?
    When they hear that 80% of COVID19 cases are mild, 15% will feel like thy have a mild flu and the remaining 5% will need care. How soon will the masses ask why they don’t quarantine that 5%?
    Don’t shoot me or say I am a mean person, I am just asking how long before the masses revolt against being imprisoned, uh I meant quarantined?
    If everyone is quarantined then who is growing the food?
    I see that a developer still has his crew building houses in one of the new subdivisions. But the real estate lobby had this labeled as essential.

    • “Do you REALLY think people are going to imprison themselves for a whole month?” Alabama? Probably not. “and the remaining 5% will need care.” If the current rate of deaths, around 2.1%, does not change when the hospitals get overwhelmed, we are heading for numbers significantly higher than the President has estimated. He’s been underplaying this pandemic from the beginning and only getting in the way. If not for Pence, it would be 10x worse. But he’s totally not underplaying this time right? Right? The 100th time? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me 100 times, shame on me. “How soon will the masses ask why they don’t quarantine that 5%?” They did, and then they found out shortly after that you can’t do that because people don’t show symptoms for 14 days. “Don’t shoot me or say I am a mean person” Dumb, horrible person, blind, cult member, “pro-life”. Oh and mean. “If everyone is quarantined then who is growing the food?” That essential thingy you mention two sentences later. That. “I see that a developer still has his crew building houses in one of the new subdivisions. But the real estate lobby had this labeled as essential.” Protecting the banks from imploding when the construction loans default would be my guess. It’s not going to work, the developers are just digging themselves deeper.

        We have over 2,000,000 people die from the flu each year. Do we shutter the economy? NOPE
        Keep making the people stay shut up in their homes and not being able to work. There will be lots of mad people.
        They say to do this to flatten the curve. The only thing that is being flattened is the economy. I say tell those “health experts” to stop talking on TV and do their job and find a treatment or let the people free

        • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 7:58 pm |

          Got a source on the 2 million? CDC says “12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010” And that’s spread over many months. Not with a peak only 2 months from the first known case. Maybe if the President didn’t acknowledge any consequences for over a month? Maybe the President shouldn’t have cut the CDC’s budget and knowingly dissolved the pandemic prevention that, in the past, sent experts to the source of outbreaks. Maybe then, we could have started making the tests like South Korea did very successfully resulting in no lockdown. You didn’t care about expert’s opinions when protections were cut for costing money. You didn’t have the foresight to see that the money that cost pales in comparison to the damage done. Maybe someone actively screwing up the “flattening the curve” shouldn’t have an opinion about it failing.

            Whatever but I got kids to feed. This socialist crap is crap. YOU quarantine yourself and let those go to work. There, you won’t need to catch covid while the rest of us who have to work to eat can work
            I bet you have a guaranteed paycheck so you hide in your house
            Others do not have your luxury.

            • Yeah let the pansies quarantine themselves and suck up to the Chinese and the real men go to work
              The rest of you need to make a MAN CHECK. Ask your daddy what this means if you have one

          • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 9:11 pm |

            The source is CDC. I know you get your sources from MSNBC

            • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 9:36 pm |

              Ok, where is it?

              MSNBC, like Fox, is a gutted skeleton of what it was 15-20 years ago. Anyone with sense knows they are just mouthpieces for those who own them and have nothing to do with journalism. I do have a guaranteed paycheck because I am in an industry not affected. One that requires college degrees and additional schooling. I did it on my own. Self taught and rare in this business. I spent 20 years well below the poverty line and took nor applied for any assistance. I’m sorry you don’t have that luxury. Maybe you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps like I heard throughout the years. I saw common sense go out the window and replaced by bean counters. So I worked my ass off to never work for one again. But keep going on those gut feelings. Keep saying your sources come from something you’ve never yourself looked into because your chosen TV station owner told you to.

            • Frieda Smith | April 2, 2020 at 12:42 pm |

              If your life has not been altered in the quarantine, you’re a Democrat.

          • CDC. Uh huh. Is that who says we should stay home while the USA goes down the tubes?

      • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 7:19 pm |

        When they keep the rest of the people from working so that they cannot pay their mortgages the banks will indeed implode.
        But I guess the working man does not have a voice like those home builders do. When the people cannot buy those cheaply built houses, what will they do then?

        • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 8:01 pm |

          Mr Business Man President backed us into a corner and we are all scrambling and making decisions to slow down the eventual depression to save face as long as possible? Maybe Mr. Business President realized the costs to the economy would be more to do nothing despite reaaally wishing it wouldn’t. The houses will go empty.

      • Oh stop it. Go hide on your couch and let those going to work go to work. We will feed you while you binge watch Netflix. Watch Tiger King and thank us

        • “let those going to work go to work. We will feed you while you binge watch Netflix. Watch Tiger King and thank us” Wow awesome what’s your address. I’m in.

        • Anonymous | April 4, 2020 at 2:25 pm |

          Hey I haven’t heard from you yet. I don’t have enough cash for Netflix, can I get your pw? Thanks in advance

      • You sound like an alarmist

    • We could at least expect people not to get on 10,000 person cruise ships. They could stay home from the beach and not congregate and overwhelm the regions hospitals. They could not do the complete opposite because they can’t look into things because they are all too busy circle jerking on Facebook to actually go look for themselves. Surely you are in the medical field and know what you are talking about. Surely you know the state of our health care system that has been privatized and slimmed down to make the highest profit. Talk to a nurse? Have you?

      • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 7:23 pm |

        Why does one need to speak to a nurse to see what is happening in the economy? yes, the medical workers are being over worked. i will give you that.
        Yes, I know the hospitals are being overwhelmed. So is the economy.
        Do I need to speak to a family of four kids to see why the breadwinner is worried about his or her next paycheck?

        • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 8:06 pm |

          Yes. Tell them how South Korea and Japan didn’t screw up. Tell them America used to send the help, not beg for it from Russia or whoever will give it. Tell them the decisions of life or death that the medical workers will have to decide over and over because of lack of supplies. Tell them that Italy is consistently ranked in the top 3 healthcare systems in the World. Tell them that the United States is 30. Tell them that Alabama is 4th to last for medical care. Tell them that pro-life means more than unborn. Tell them the United States has no guarantee of an infinite future and that we are living in the poorest part. Tell them that there is no guarantee that the wealthy states will drop the ones they have been propping up when the going gets tough. Tell them that doesn’t mean Texas wants us. Tell them how close we came to electing Moore and how he could be swept into power. Tell them how no one will do business with us then.

          • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 9:09 pm |

            Yada yada yada. If Italy is so advanced then why is their government holding their citizens prisoner?
            These “experts” don’t know nothing because they are too busy pimping for the news cameras
            I am going to work. If the wimps want to stay home then they can quarantine themselves so they can stay safe. I have a family to feed

            • Anonymous | April 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm |

              You’re right. It’s not like these people have dedicated decades in the field. Their medical system is ranked 3rd. Nothing to do with holding their citizens prisoner. People defied the recommendations and later complied when the shit hit the fan. I’m sorry that you have to bury your head in the sand to tell yourself you’re not a wimp. I’ve seen plenty of suffering families with painful smiles. That has nothing to do with the fact that those who had a lot to lose in this economy, decided this was the lesser impact. But your gut feelings, that’s what we should go by.

              • Go stuff it. Stop your saving lives. Carona will blow over and I will NOT be held hostage to a government that is trying to imprison me.
                The Chinese can eat their crap covered bat soup
                Fauci can go blow off. He has no other solution but bury his head in the sand. We must keep the economy running.
                You go buy toilet paper and hide in your house. The brave ones will go out and keep the country running
                Mother Nature will build our immunity like any other virus

                • The latest is that a shrimp merchant was patient zero. They believe from a toilet. Toilet zero. Or is it crap zero? But who is to say that in the end, no pun intended, maybe it’s possible that it was crap from crap covered bat soup. They really do eat everything. On a side note, the brown string thing that goes up the spine of a shrimp is shrimp poop. A poop spine. Anyway, continue.

              • Their decades in the field is a waste of their time and ours. You go take refuge in your house and wait for the 2 trillion from the government. You won’t see it but keep believing the government will save you
                What a joke

            • Yep. Nature culls the herd. That is a Nancy Pelosi quote. Any of you bleeding hearts have a comeback?
              The Director is the WHO is from a Third World country. We should not listen to him

              • The WHO director said Wuhan is the hope of the world. Really….
                And we Americans are cowering in our homes. What a bunch of cucks

          I don’t suggest googling it. So let me explain in terms the Internet Manly Men can understand. Picture a football team, Alabama or Auburn. Your choice. They all get in a big circle. Football butt tap to the right! Good job! Football but tap to left! Good job!

    • Tell you what WATCHER! You worry about you and your family, God forbid you have one and we’ll take care of ours. Imprisoned, you say! That’s for people like you who are only talking crap about this virus and not doing a thing about it. You are probably the asshole posting how bad our hospitals are. Well, there will be plenty of people taking care of the young or old, the sick or the well, the hungry or those who have plenty and those who are rich or poor! All the while you are bitching about everything that you don’t agree during your daily self pity party! Of course you are a pathetic little person that we will, naturally, have to take care of. Who care about this or that. Shut up your pie hole and get out of the way. We’ll take care of “Everything”! We always do! Crawl back to your hole! STFU!!!

          They tell we what to think and it saves me lots of what little mental energy I have

    Why does Kay Ivey close up businesses but allows developers who employ Mexicans to keep building? The only ones I see able to work are Mexicans NOT Americans
    Why are we Americans/Alabamians being discriminated against in our own stare?

  7. Rupert Madlock | April 2, 2020 at 9:01 pm |

    Mr. ripp blame covid 19 on burrell. He deserves.
