Rip-off alert! Rip-off alert!

I just have to call out some of these snake oil peddlers from time to time.

In this case, I’m referring to “Balance of Nature.’

If you haven’t seen their commercials, they have people claiming that taking these little capsules of pulverized fruits and vegetables have cured any number of ailments.

Do these people look like the pictures of health we should all emulate?

Hmmm…, let’s take a closer look.

“Balance of Nature” suggests we take 3 fruit capsules and 3 veggie capsules per day.

If you take a look at the size of these capsules, this is like the equivalent of eating a couple strawberries and maybe one carrot!

And this is their miraculous cure all?!

They claim to “pack 10 servings of fruits and vegetables into 6 tiny capsules.”

At least the “tiny capsules” part is right!

Let’s use a little common sense here.

I don’t care how much you smash and grind up something…, it is still going to take up the same basic amount of space.  It’s just basic science.

These people want us to believe they have their own “Honey, I shrunk the fruits and veggies” process.

Well, they don’t.

Just sayin’.

So, when we look at their bottle of fruits capsules and their bottle of veggies capsules, it’s like the equivalent of buying a couple bananas, a couple of apples, and a head of broccoli.

And for the equivalent of a couple bananas, a couple of apples, and a head of broccoli, you get to spend $89.95…, plus tax!  That comes to about 50 cents per capsule.

That’s for a “thirty day supply.”

But, hey, shipping is free!

They say this is how “nature intended” us to get our fruits and veggies!

Really?!

Do you realize how many real fruits and real veggies you could buy for $90?

Taking these capsules certainly don’t hurt.  And if you typically don’t eat any fruits or vegetables, taking these capsules is better than nothing, but they certainly are not going to change your life or significantly improve your health.

It really helps to step back and use a little common sense.

People would be much better off investing in a bottle of good daily multi-vitamins, a bag of apples and a bag of carrots, at a fifth of what these miracle capsules cost.

Is our response to the coronavirus unrealistic?

I see that this event is getting cancelled, and that school is closing down, and these games are being suspended, and any plans that involve interactions with people are being changed.

We’re wearing masks, washing our hands 20 times a day, and consuming hand sanitizer like never before.

Is it all really necessary?

Are these new “health” practices going to end up being more harmful than helpful?

I mean, the regular old annual flu is way more dangerous than the coronavirus is.

Are we setting a precedent now where we’re going to implement all of these travel bans and event cancellations and school closures every new flu season?

How can we not now?

How can we pretend one is more dangerous than the other?

How can we put all of these restrictions in place to avoid one virus but not another?

Does that make any sense?

Why have we been willing to just go about our normal everyday lives with the flu virus lurking out there, behind every cough, every sneeze, every handshake, and all of our everyday interactions?

Why is risking getting the flu any less risky than getting the coronavirus?

Why were we one day completely okay with the potential of catching the flu and the next day completely freaking out over the possibility of catching something that’s not even as bad?

Oh…, and just a reminder…, during the 2018-2019 flu season [November thru April, or about six months], 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died.”

And that’s only in the U.S.

The seasonal flu kills between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to estimates.

Again…, it doesn’t make any sense.

Worldwide 4,756 people have died due to the coronavirus as of today.

But making sense is not the strong suit of the democrats or their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

It is not a requirement either.

In fact, a situation like this is a perfect one for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

Why?

Because it’s a situation that The President can’t win.

Have we been able to eliminate the flu?

No.

Will we be able to eliminate the coronavirus?

Probably not.

And certainly not anytime soon.

And as long as the coronavirus hangs around, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media can stand back, whip up the hysteria, and take pot shots at him.

Boy…, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media friends are sure desperate to gain political control over this country again, aren’t they?

They are just hell-bent on destroying this country and our way of life.

That’s exactly why we have to stand strong and make sure they don’t get the chance.

At some point, people will get tired of living in fear and living in a bubble, and they’ll say screw it, just like they had been doing, and they’ll go back to living their lives again, and maybe they’ll get the flu along the way.
