First Entry....

Where to begin....as for many folks these past ten months have been challenging outside of MSM "corona virus". The stigma of the pandemic (plandemic) is far greater than the virus, simply put - if you knew someone or came in close proximity of an infected person, you were to be quarantine - thus giving you this stigma. This same stigma went to small businesses, out of fear the ruling MSM made an effort to report of shaming and censoring of any business breaking suggested guidelines. Am I a virus denier, no. But its clear to see that this was planned and fueled by the media, politicians and financial institutions to cripple the mom and pop stores in our community, as for reasons why, I don't know, maybe to transfer assets? Either way, this riddled the country's work force and put everyone's livelihood in jeopardy.   

Working musicians were hit hard! I'm not talking pop music puppets, but you're hard working professional musicians, who play various events i.e. weddings, corporate events, wineries, private events, etc. you know the ones performing three-four hour gigs with no breaks, those musicians. They depend on small businesses in the events field to thrive and since every event since Feb./March 2020 came to a complete stop, so too have these working musicians.  I get it, you can say do a live stream and ask for tips, but here's the truth that doesn't work, because the well of those tipping is drying up too. Plus these musicians have catered most of their professional careers playing these events, that it just doesn't translate to a live stream. 

We are seeing industries disappear and livelihoods vanish right in front of our eyes, livelihoods that have a family structure that partially depends on income of some kind. Will we get these industries back? Maybe not all. Will we get back to normal? Maybe not. As of today January 26 2021 its not looking good, this country is on the ropes and its not the virus fault.
