Default You can kick their balls, but you can't touch their balls

Local politician's coronavirus tennis ball warning goes hilariously wrong

She said at a news briefing on Sunday that people have to bring their own tennis balls so that they don't come in contact with other players' equipment.

Then things veered into "Beavis and Butthead" territory.

"You can kick their balls, but you can't touch them," she said.

Now really putting things into prospective about Covid 19 vs the Spanish Flu, and so when you do.... Covid 19 numbers are very low compared to the Spanish Flu. Now ask yourself, where was all the pandemic screamers back then?

What you're not getting, is that Covid 19 has only effected 2.2% of the total population of the US, compared to the other viruses like H1N1, Ebola, Sine Flu, Sars. All the new cases that are coming out of NY ie 66% are from being shut indoors.. where herd immunity could have saved their lives. Not to mention that there is lots of money to be had, for those reporting Covid 19 deaths, and bigger $$$$ for respirator death while reported on Covid 19. They are cooking the books, at the classifications.

I'm not saying that Covid 19 isn't a bad virus, it is... but ask yourself why the homeless aren't being reported as getting it, as they don't practice social distancing or staying indoors, self quarantine etc.

Think about what really is behind all this... and suddenly right after election day, everything will be lifted.

When I played tennis the doubles courts were 2808 sqft and the object of the game was to hit their balls when they served them and returned volley. It the science of virus transmission has changed the court and the game I missed it. Sounds like we are following idiots. Makes us not very smart to continue.
