    Fauci on US after coronavirus: No shaking hands ‘ever again’

    Americans would be smart to carry some lessons with them into the future after the nation’s coronavirus crisis is over, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

    “One of them is absolute compulsive hand-washing,” Fauci, a member of President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force, said Wednesday during a Wall Street Journal podcast.

    “The other,” he added, “is you don't ever shake anybody's hands. I don't think we should ever shake hands ever again, to be honest with you.”

    &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

    From the same story but, relating to Trump.
    Over the years, Trump has made numerous references to his disapproval of handshaking, calling the practice “barbaric,” “disgusting,” “very, very terrible,” and “one of the curses of American society,” Politico reported in March.

    They would basically be throwing out 100's of years of social etiquette just in the effort to avoid spreading infectious diseases. Won't work. As we have seen this particular disease is not just passed by physical touch, it is airborne too. So, to follow his reasoning to its logical conclusion we should just all wear masks all the time. The germaphobes out there can certainly go this route, but the general populous will live life as we always have.

    What I find amazing all the double-speak coming different areas of the government and from the likes of Bill Gates, who will continue to push vaccines under the guise of wanting to eradicate disease while at the same time what they are really doing is pushing forward their agenda of population control.

    Stop taking advice on how to live from the government and just follow the guidance of the bible. That is the ultimate source that is truly worth following.

    I was a little slow to accept the Hand Bump Thing that the younger crowd at our Church started doing many years back. In time I kinda got it down and have been using it occasionally.

    Looks like now it may be popular for a long time into the future?

    Or the now famous old CV knee bump?
    From a safe distance.
    Long legs work best.

    Instructions for proper use of Knee Bump.
    Lean way back as if doing the Limbo.
    Lift one leg while extending knee.
    Bump knee with other while keeping head
    at a safe 6 ft distance from the others head.

    Caution
    Old guys have been known to fall down.
    Best shake others with cane.
    Gentle shake or stroke -- no hitting.

    Got any links for that claim and if they are the usual conspiracy theory stuff maybe they have a better forum somewhere?

    Is it this debunked stuff or some new exciting spin off ?

    Did Bill Gates Admit Vaccinations Are Designed So Governments Can Depopulate the World?

    You're using snopes to disprove something that is part of the liberal agenda? Way to go.

    Have you not been seeing all of the reports coming out lately about how Bill Gates' foundation has been developing an electronic method to track people who have been vaccinated? Now, I am not saying this will actually come to fruition any time soon, if at all, as there are plenty of people in this country who would actively oppose such a program (at varying degrees of aggressiveness), but it is certainly something they have considered are at different levels of trying to get their agenda pushed onto the populous.

    SOP for conspiracy theorists - all evidence against the conspiracy is just part of the conspiracy. Meaning that it can never be disproven.

    I stopped shaking hands with people years ago, because I got tired of catching people's colds. And I haven't caught a cold since. :)

    How does this relate to population control ?

    Let me guess...

    The tracking system also monitors for elevated hearth rate and pheromone production preceding sex so instantly men in black suits are dispatched to the scene to show the aspiring couple pictures of fat naked grannies while their loud speakers boom babies cry. This will kill the mood and earth gets depopulated.

    Devious.
