    Funny….in a this is not normal kind of way.

    In my paranoid mind I have come to believe that the lockdowns have been useful for the power-drunk ruling class to keep people from associating and thereby talking about all that is happening under the guise of pandemic mitigation. In other words – a power grab.
    State representatives and congress-critters have not held town hall type meetings, they aren’t even accepting constituents into their home offices for face-to-face, gun club no meetings, camera club-same. It is a good ploy as part of a divide and conquer strategy.

    There is one class of people that is not struggling. They are those people employed by government. None of them have missed a paycheck during this shit-show.

    “We share your concerns.” Yeah, sure.

    spot on.

    You want to know what I hate the most about covid (as I fully admit to doing this myself)?

    Having to talk about it EVERY DAMNED DAY.

    I mean, there are so many other interesting things to talk about in the world, and every single time you’re in an interesting conversation, the topic eventually turns back to covid.

    “Having to talk about it EVERY DAMNED DAY.”
    That’s a “society” disease.
    To yammer on and on about goofy meaningless gossip, over and over.
    I stopped by Gnawbone Jacks place the other day and we didn’t yap about that shit at all.
    He did tell me the diff, though, between a US Stihl string trimmer and a chinese Stihl string trimmer is about $30. I’ll prolly get the US version just because. But I gotta think about it a bit. Any expenditures over $50 requires some deep thought over a week or so. It’s an old dood thang.

    virus? what virus? Didn’t happen but a lot of naïve and gullible people were easily scared into believing so. They’ll be the ones fist fighting to get on the boxcars first. Each boxcar will have 200 USB ports.

    I haven’t the least bit of interest in Stihl string trimmers, whatever they are and to each his own, but I have a great deal of interest in derailing the covid narrative and its destructive effects. Probably a losing battle and it does get old, but ya gotta try. If it saves just one life…

    Remember, we are all in this together. Gag! In just the past two weeks, I’ve noticed an increase in my area of the covid inquisition and vaccine status posturing. People actually feel that it’s appropriate to announce their covid vaccine status in an email, or in person while they look inquiringly at you. If you don’t reply with your status, they directly ask, as if your private health information is their business. My husband was just harassed at an in person photography class by a crazy woman who asked everyone’s status, eagerly announcing that she had received both of her shots. Out of 16 people including the teacher and the moderator, he was the only one who didn’t raise his hand that he was vaccinated. She then glared at him for two days, and later suggested that he might be uncomfortable coming to the front of the class-socially distanced of course-with the group to view physical enlarged photos. This was a class where everyone had to be masked and everyone had an indicidual table and chair six feet apart. Most of the time was spent going out into a large garden to do individual photography assignments. He schooled her that he had never said he was unvaccinated. He simply preferred not to share his private health information. She didn’t know how to respond to that. I went online to research this hysteria and discovered that there are etiquette coaches being interviewed in articles about people’s right to demand someone’s vaccine status, how to convince a friend, family member, or co-worker to get the jab, and finally, how to break off a relationship with a non-vaxxer. There are also writers in major publications actually calling for rounding up and killing those who refuse the jab—concentration camps anyone?

    Echo for the string trimmer. That advice came to me from a perfessnul lawn care dood who runs nothing else. Eight years in on mine and after sitting all winter, it started on the third pull. I’ve done nothing to it but put gas and string in it. Your mileage may vary.

    @Annie Rose
    …If you don’t reply with your status, they directly ask, as if your private health information is their business…..

    Exactly. Has anyone ever asked me whether I’m current on a flu shot or the shingles vaccine? STD? Should they? These diseases are also transmissable. Why are we concerned about one disease and not the others?

    I’m not a public health and I don’t play one on the Internet but when I see this chart….
    ….I have to ask myself: How different from this would a chart displaying herd immunity look like?

    Annie Rose,
    Thanks for sharing. We are truly in dangerous territory. The irrationality that is being stoked by the media is remarkable. And to think in spite of all the HIIPA regulations people are expected to divulge their vaccination status publicly, to sate the hysteria of a bunch of mentally unbalanced ignoramuses.

    I am not anti-vaccine, but I am not interested in taking this one, as I believe it to be untested and probably unsafe. I also do not trust the folks peddling it – Gates, Fauci, et.al. Both of these men are dishonest. More info coming out each day about Fauci’s involvement and funding of “gain of function” research at the Wuhan Virology Lab.
    It always fascinates me that people who get vaccines are worried about other people not getting vaccinated. If they trust that the vaccines work to protect against being infected and that they are vaccinated, but someone else is not….what are they worried about? There is an element of control-freakishness to these people that really bothers me.

    Annie Rose sed: “…people’s right to demand someone’s vaccine status…”
    There is no such “right” and anyone ignorant enough to think there is should be punched in the face on the spot. That is, if you want to cure them of that malady. Anything less will just encourage them.

    Notice: One side keeps getting harsher and the other side keeps stepping backward trying to avoid the harsh. At some point you will have your back to the wall, literally or figuratively, and at that point you will snap a glass rod being bent too far. Afterward you won’t remember the fine details and your whole body will ache for a week but your mind will be sated temporarily.

    Thanks for the list of phrases never to be used in any of my communications, I’d missed a few of those.
