Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
People are at the point of begging the government for a mandatory quarantine. What I don't think they understand is that handing over all their freedom to the government is a dangerous thing. There's no guarantee that the government will be willing to give it back.
Now Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is calling for a "temporary" lockdown of the country in order to stop the spread of coronavirus.
"For the time being, I would," Biden told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Friday regarding a lockdown, "You don't know who doesn't have the virus."
That's a dangerous, slippery slope to go down.
Several governors have put a "stay in home" order in place, and closed most businesses not deemed essential. Thankfully President Donald has some sense and has declined (so far) to implement or recommend a national quarantine due to COVID-19.
The Hill reports:
Biden said Friday that he has spoken with a number of Democratic governors, including Jay Inslee (Wash.), Gretchen Whitmer (Mich.), Tom Wolf (Pa.) and John Bel Edwards (La.). Whitmer is a co-chair on Biden's campaign.
The former vice president said he also spoke with Republican governors, but did not specifically name them.
Biden has used his now-completely digital campaign to counterprogram Trump's response to the virus this week, using virtual television interviews, press briefings, roundtables and a new newsletter in an attempt to contrast Trump's handling of the crisis with his own recommended approach.
The former vice president released a plan to bolster the economy amid the pandemic. Biden said the plan would accelerate aid to businesses that vow to keep their workers employed, expedite the delivery of unemployment insurance, pressure banks to provide loans to small businesses and lean on large companies seeking taxpayer assistance to emphasize “that they need to make hard commitments that the assistance will go toward their workers.”
I think this goes without saying, but let's hope no one is dumb enough to listen to creepy ol Joe.

SHOCKING: News Outlet Accuses Coronavirus of Being Sexist
I guess the liberal media is just as dumb in Australia as it is here in the United States.
One news outlet Down Under is saying that the coronavirus is targeting women more than it is targeting men. Can someone tell me what kind of logic they're using in that the virus is consciously able to do such a thing?
MSM Outlets Are Re-Writing History By Editing Old Coronavirus Reports
And so it has begun again. The media is trying to be slick and go back and edit stories, headlines, and even tweets when they've been busted on. Either something they wrote didn't take the coronavirus seriously or it was just straight-up fake news.
The New York Times, Vox, and Buzzfeed are all trying to fix all their fake news they've been putting out. It's too bad CNN doesn't at least do this, they just really don't care at all. They'll just leave it that way.
