The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I am persuaded that this is not going to get better with another two weeks. I’m persuaded that this language is a version of describing the intention of the petitioner and 20,000 people who signed the petition saying they want to create a significant change and that we should put it on the ballot. So I’m going to go ahead and move for approval of language as is.” Minneapolis Council member Steve Fletcher

Quote II

“The first thing I think your viewers need to understand is that my client is not suing one of its customers for leaving a bad review. That's not what's going on here,”Davud Bowser, Attorney

Quote III

"We used to be known as a late-night restaurant. ... We can't do that anymore. I don't have the staff and people are exhausted,"Laurie Torres, restaurant owner

Quote IV

“Catholic social teaching upholds the principle that every person has the right to live in his or her own homeland in security and dignity. However, when loss of work forces migration, we must welcome them, protect them and share our abundance with them.” The archbishop of Washington, DC, Cardinal Wilton Gregory

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has a burr under his saddle for Dr. Anthony Fauci. He now has made a referral to the DOJ about Fauci's testimony before the senate. We know nothing will happen.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) has delivered on his promise to criminally refer Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, to the Department of Justice for allegedly lying to Congress.


Last week, Paul told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would send a criminal referral to the Justice Department alleging that Fauci lied to Congress about whether the National Institutes of Health funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

"He's lying about whether or not he funded gain-of-function research, and yes, he should be punished," Paul said.

If the DOJ won't investigate the democratic state governors who caused the nursing home Kung Flu deaths. Why in the hell would they target Fauci?

F*ck Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream and eat
Haagen Dazs.

A major New York supermarket chain has taken punitive action against Ben & Jerry’s after the ice cream company declared that it was ending sales in the West Bank.

John A. Catsimatidis, owner and CEO of the Gristedes grocery store chain, which mainly operates in New York City, announced Sunday, “I authorized our stores to cut Ben & Jerry’s space by 30% & not advertise until further notice.”

“It’s a tragedy that Ben & Jerry’s has politicized ice cream,” he stated.

Catsimatidis added, “I like Haagen Dazs better created by a South Bronx family who is pro-Israel.”

The decision by Ben & Jerry’s was met with intense criticism in Israel, while some US officials have promised to use state anti-BDS laws to take legal action against the company.

Of course the little smarmy worm doesn't have a reason.

“That’s a local decision that’s not incompatible with the CDC’s overall recommendations that give a lot of discretion to the locals,” Fauci said Sunday regarding the local policies. “And we’re seeing that in L.A. We’re seeing it in Chicago. We’re seeing that in New Orleans, because the officials there, many of them are saying, ‘Even if you’re vaccinated, it’s prudent to wear a mask indoors.'”

During the Sunday interview, Fauci didn’t provide a specific reason why vaccinated people should wear masks.


I'll be honest with you, I've been vaccinated. But, I'll be damned if I'm going to wear a face diaper anymore.

This is almost as enjoyable as the US Women's soccer team going down like Kamala "The San Francisco Headhunter" Harris.


Team USA men’s basketball was fried by the French in a stunning opening loss at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Americans led Team France by seven with under four minutes remaining, but the French scored the next 14 points for a shocking 83-76 victory Sunday at Saitama Super Arena.

Nets star Kevin Durant was in early foul trouble and had 10 points on 4-for-12 shooting in 21 minutes before fouling out in the closing seconds. Jrue Holiday had a team-high 18 and Bam Adebayo added 12 in a rocky start for the three-time defending gold medalists.

The loss marked Team USA’s first in the Olympics since it fell short of the medal stand in 2004


Speaking of Olympics, I hope this team sinks.

Oh I think the jury is still out on this. NYC sent non-police teams to respond to mental health calls for a month. Data shows that more people got help and fewer were hospitalized.

A New York City pilot program that sends social workers instead of police officers to respond to mental health crisis calls is showing some early signs of success, according to data from the city.

The B-HEARD program — it stands for Behavioral Health Emergency Assistance Response Division — launched in a portion of Harlem last month and has sent teams of three unarmed, behavioral health specialists to respond to more than 100 911 calls.

Between June 6 and July 7, 911 dispatchers rerouted about 25% of all mental health-related calls to B-HEARD teams, according to the city's data. Once the teams arrived on scene, about 95% of the people in crisis accepted medical assistance. When there is a traditional response from police and EMS workers, about 82% of people in crisis accept help.

Mooooo-ve over Trans folks. The next new mental disorder is here.

If you happen to spot someone in a field on all fours, chewing grass, and exhibiting other cow-like behaviors such as mooing, they may be suffering from Boanthropy. Boanthropy is a rare psychological disorder that causes a human being to believe that they are a cow. Those inflicted with Boanthropy behave accordingly and attempt to live like cows. I don't think I've met anyone with Boanthropy before, but perhaps I will someday.

A fool and his money are soon parted. San Francisco likes spending money on cops inanimate objects.

San Francisco Rolls Out "Ridiculous" $20,000 Designer-Style Trash Cans

What a bunch of rubbish. San Francisco elected officials can barely govern their own city as violent crime, homelessness, a drug epidemic, and trash plague the metro area. With complaints piling up about garbage strung across streets that resemble a third-world country, officials know how to do one thing: spend. They have proposed installing new prototype trash cans that cost a whopping $20,000 each.

Local news KRON4 spoke with San Francisco Public Works, Aleric Degrafinried, who defended the cost associated with the prototype trash cans shaped like a fancy salt shaker.

City officials agreed Wednesday to build 15 trash can prototypes, five each of three different designs.

My how times have changed. I could never imagine doing this only 15 years ago.

14-Year-Old Forced to Do House Chores Reports His Father to Police for “Illegal Child Labor”

Chinese media recently reported the case of a 14-year-old boy who shocked police when he accused his father of “illegal child labor”, because he had been forced to do chores around the house.

The bizarre incident allegedly took place this week in Ma’anshan, China’s Anhui province. Sick of seeing his son with his hands and eyes glued to his smartphone, and ignoring his homework and studies, a parent decided to give the boy a taste of life’s hardships, and asked him to put down the handheld and do some housework. Angry with his father making him take a break from his phone, the reportedly smartphone-addicted teenager snuck out of the house when his father wasn’t paying attention and went straight to the police station. There, he proceeded to accuse his father of “illegal child labor”.

After a year plus of the Kung Flu dictates by governments world wide, things are getting tense in Australia.

Police are searching for an anti-lockdown protester who punched a horse after a Sydney demonstration turned ugly.

Protests took place in several Australian cities on Saturday after officials imposed restrictions to combat a surge of Covid-19 infections.

Unmasked protestors clashed with police after they broke through barriers and pelted officers with bottles and plants.

Several arrests were made as the demonstrators made their way towards the city’s town hall.

The concept sounds good, but what about all of the details such as foundation, HVAC, electrical to name just a few.


A new factory in Las Vegas will soon be churning out foldable, stackable housing units that can be shipped without the need for a wide load.

Boxabl, the company behind this endeavor, is entering a competitive field of technology-driven companies aiming to reduce the cost of construction. Though other companies in this arena have focused on 3D printing and other automated construction technologies, the central challenge for Boxabl was how to ship its houses as conveniently as possible. This is one of the primary factors that led to its unique foldable design.

Good old Illinois politics. It certainly isn't for the faint of heart.

REVEALED: Illinois Democrat congresswoman bribed rival to not run against her, offered six-figure job at congressional office
Democrat Illinois Rep. Marie Newman admitted to a federal judge that she offered a six-figure job at her congressional office to a potential political rival, an apparent bribe that may be a federal crime.

"But, your honor I had the "OK" from city hall. Well, city hall is full of crap and doesn't know what they are doing.

Homeowner must demolish $3M Gatineau luxury home built too close to road: Quebec court

The judge placed the blame squarely on the city, saying Patrick Molla was given no reason to believe his project would face problems

The ruling describes how the home’s owner, Patrick Molla, had thought everything was in order when he was granted permits to build in May 2013. That September, the city discovered the permits had been issued in error, but it never ordered the owner to cease construction. Instead, the ruling says, Molla was told the issue would be resolved with an exemption, and in February 2014 the family moved into the house.

Neighbours, however, complained about the property, saying it didn’t fit with the rest of the neighbourhood and contravened a bylaw because it was not far enough from the street. The bylaw at issue states homes must be at least 15.67 metres from the street, instead of the seven metres for the home in question.

Son's summer league baseball is finally over. He played his last game today. He has improved SO much over the summer under this coach it is amazing. He started the season striking out repeatedly. He ended his season with a two-weekend total of two triples, one double, and a home run. Goes to show what a good coach can do.

Hell, he used to take me to NWA wrestling shows and get us backstage for events like Starcade.

Sadly, the churches getting burned are not the "woke" social justice shit-barns, but older traditional churches that had some association, real or imagined, with the now long-closed Indian Residential Schools (which the native elders of the day admitted were necessary to protect children from abusive drunk parents.).

Then why do I need the vaccine if it doesn't work?



Dumbest bullshit ever.

Posted by: Alabama at July 25, 2021 09:19 PM (4fSQf)
The great golfer from Spain, Jon Rahm tested positive for covid right after he got the jab. It was before the famous 14 window but he had the jab and then tested positive. So by that, he had the Wuflu and also had the jab. And now, two months later, he tested positive for Covid again. I don't know what to make of it but I know what many others will make of it, time for another lock down. Bryson Dechambeau, the American also tested positive and both are out of the Olympics.But i just saw that something like 0.0001 percent of Americans who have been vaccinated have been hospitalized or passed away. It was something like 190 million vs 5,500. I don't do math but i know that is a very small percentage. Be on the lookout though, as some are already freaking and using two guys in a particular sport to make a trend.

86 In happy news: Today, in our beach vacation spot the church was packed at the 8am Mass! I estimate 500-600 folks. During the sign of peace perfect strangers actually shook hands and/or hugged each other. Almost like old times again. It was magnificent!!

Also, a very famous actress from the 90s was in attendance. She's been through the meat grinder these last few years but looked sober, healthy and happy. Good for her. I won't name her as she is on vacation too. But it was good to see her happy with her elderly parents.

The other night, maybe last night ONT, I posted some numbers from a guy on Denninger's forum familiar with these kinds of stats, and he ran the latest numbers out of England to get honest vaccine efficacy data, by looking at the numbers after vaccine uptake became appreciable.

He just posted the relative efficacy numbers, and I asked him if he would post the absolute efficacy numbers. He did.

Now, by way of explanation, what is the difference between relative and absolute efficacy? Supposed your chance of getting something is 1%. Some proposed treatment drops that change to 0.5%. That's a 50% relative efficacy. Now, the difference is the absolute efficacy, which is 0.5%.

In relative terms, your risk is reduced by 50%. In absolute terms your risk dropped 0.5%. The inverse of this is the "Number Needed to Treat" (NNT), which is the number of people you need to treat to prevent one case. In this case, it's 100/0.5 = 200. It's the absolute risk reduction that is key.

108 another thing about these golfer's. Every time they test positive, nothing happens. They come back in two weeks and still play at the highest level. That is what Rahm did when he won the US Open. You keep hearing about athletes testing positive. How many spent time in a hospital fighting for their lives?
My point is some are missing the forest for the trees. I don't get the Rahm thing. We don't know the entire story but also it seems he is the unluckiest lucky guy in history. He is still a multi millionaire who whacks a ball around.

The "we" is the real problem there. He's turning individual merit* into corporate merit. While "we" as the church should practice charity and such, as well, the command is for the church and for the saints, NOT for the gov't or groups of people as simply corporate entities.

That's beside the issues of not committing other sins while trying to practice virtue. (Otherwise, what's to stop me from stealing to feed the poor?)

Now, here's the absolute numbers from England, from 4/18 until the present. Remember, as a rough cut off, he used below 50 and 50 or above. These risk are normalized to a per year rate, which is standard. That is, if the risk is X%, that means X% per year.

Under 50: absolute infection risk reduction: 1.01%; hospitalization: 0.020%; Death: 0.00032%

Over 50: absolute infection risk reduction: 0.73%; hospitalization: 0.117%; death: 0.0344%

The absolute risk reduction for "catching the bug" is about the same order of magnitude for both groups. But for over 50, reduction for hospitalization is about 10 times greater, and death is about 100 times.

Rest assured that there are good men willing to fight the good fight. This is not over. The Lord provides the strength. We must be willing to accept the challenge. Not easy. I know this. But I was inspired by what I heard from these men of Christ.

Read this. It will infuriate you and also provide clarity.
Basically we have known since the 60's that Coronaviruses have 2 infections peaks as year late fall/early winter and late spring/early summer because antibodies don't last long and they constantly evolve. They have known forever vaccinations were useless because of this.
Oh also the CDC removed the PCR test because not only could they not differentiate between Coronaviruses but now they admit influenza viruses as well.
Also modern doctors get their research and are taught by Big Pharma. So Big Pharma teaches doctors about drugs they make the the effects.
But read the entire thing. It's worth it.

If the cops are using horses as weapons against protesters, then punching the horses is justified. Pretty hard to really hurt a horse without a weapon, but if you can make them rear up and buck off their rider, it's a tactic.

My parents told me a month ago an outbreak of Bronchitis was going around at home taking 2-3 antibiotics to treat and the town wasn't testing for Rona, while at the same up in the Highlands Area (Mountains where people from Georgia vacation and have homes), an outbreak of Corona was affecting mostly men.

I had to remind my parents that Bronchitis isn't contagious like the doctors were leading their patients and friends to believe. It's inflammation of the Bronchial things caused by post nasal drip from allergies or a cold.

230 Our church bulletin today stated that a significant number of our congregation is still unvaccinated, so everyone must continue to use caution (although no forced masks any more, at least.)

But I have been pondering all day--how do they know this? We haven't been asked to report if we have been or not. A lot of paranoid things are occurring to me. Is there actually a database of vaccinations somewhere, after all, and could influential people access it and look up names? We have a lot of health care people in our church.

237 Hey all. Played soccer today, feel like the ole bod might expire. Ow, my knees.

Of course, since this is the people's republic of pugetopolis, i had to play a women's game where a man in a sports bra got to dribble around us. They are 6' and my team has a few 5 footers. Its not fair. Its not fucking fair. Plays like a stereotypical dude too, no passing, and no defense. Shitty!

239 Our church bulletin today stated that a significant number of our congregation is still unvaccinated, so everyone must continue to use caution (although no forced masks any more, at least.)

But I have been pondering all day--how do they know this?


Its a simple trick taken by carnival mentalists performing cold readings. They are betting that no one in the congregation knows the ratio either. It could be 100% but who would know?

I lay odds that the Fe'ral Government reached out to those in the church administration and dangled some C19 cash to push the Kill Shot. Jizz Socky consoled everyone the other day saying that their Jecovid Witnesses would not be agents, but volunteers from churches and other community groups.

These are people in their thirties and forties who are happy to have the governor of Michigan run their lives. It's pathetic.

Required digging down about 18", in a 3' diameter to get down to some un-fractured PVC, and make enough room to get a recip Fein Tool in there to cut a new, clean line. Did the repair, with the cap now below ground level and protected inside a Water Utilities casement and lid. I'll finish the lawnmowing chores, tomorrow. *pours bourbon* I EARNED this one!

To me the best is that Gelato in Italy. Not at every stand mind you, the opposite is the fact. We have nothing on the Italians when it comes to selling crapola at tourist joints. I said before, go for pistachio that is white, and banana that is grayish white, not yellow. That is the best test I can offer.

It was like farting in church. As though they never pondered such a question.

Would you fight to stop your 8 year old daughter from being subjected to a transgender man naked in a bathroom?

Would you fight to stop the government from injecting your kid with a experimental vaccine that might severely damage their health moving forward?

What principles would you lose everything over?

The other day, I was walking on the grass strip between the limit of my property, and the edge of the cultivated cropland beside it. Stubbed my toe on a one and a half inch iron pipe plug, screwed into a coupling coming out of the ground. Never saw it before, and I have been mowing this strip for years. The co-op's gas line runs up that way, so I wonder if it is part of the gas line? Should have a flag or sign on it if it is. Luckily, never hit it with the mower. I will call the gas co-op tomorrow.

He is correct, there are no net health benefits from taking the Kill Shot. It is being strong-armed on the population purely because of politics.

Its kind of weird that your priest wants you dead though. Rome has fallen a long way. I remember when people were worried that Rome would have control over the former United States via JFK. It seems that the State and the Church have married now into an unholy alliance of death and chattel slavery to the Secular State.

Another this guy got was some adverse event numbers out of Hungary. That's one thing our elites will not put out, and that's any serious estimates of side effects with these damned vaccines. They don't want us to know. "Why did you need to know that?", said Psaki the other day when asked about the hospitalization rate for the vaccinated.

Well, Hungary has been more open with the data and he got some. Based on that, the "serious adverse event rate" for the vaccines (and this would be all of them in the proportion Hungary is using) is estimated to be 0.039% That's about 4 per 10K.

The kill rate of the shots looks to be 0.0079%. That's 79 out of a million, or about 8 per 100K.

292 Compare that to the absolute risk reductions. For the under 50, the risk to benefit ratio is over 1, and well over it. The ratio for hospitalization is 1.95. You'll have 2 serious adverse reactions for every one you prevent being hospitalized. For death, that ratio is *26*.

For the over 50 numbers, the risk to benefit are 0.33 for hospitalization, and 0.23.

For over 50, it's under 1, but still appreciable. That is, you save more people than you harm or kill, but it ain't too hot.

Sure many are arguing over whether people are told about this stuff beforehand, I know I wasn't. I looked it up on the web at some point. I got it just like they said.

ten or so hours after the second shot I felt more ill than I have in decades, many decades. A legit fever, the chills, basically bedridden. I wasn't expecting it at all because i never think about those things. I was on the net, likely here and just started to feel weird all of a sudden. It lasted two days and I had a fever.

Well, if it was just 2 days of severe discomfort, but it guaranteed you complete immunity from the WuFlu, for life, it might be worth it. But they aren't even claiming short-term "immunity". Just that if you catch the Coof, you won't get as sick as otherwise. Which is an untestable claim, because some people get very sick from the Coof, and others just have a snotty day or two.

325 Part of the reason the Catholic moderns are so devoted to liberation theology is that the ancien regime had the Church hand-in-glove, not just with the old aristocracy, but with the whole feudal structure. You'll find lots of immigrant enclaves in US cities with whole villages of people from east and central Europe, the old Holy Roman Empire and Austro-Hungary and countries that had "voivodes," where a count would decide to make a change in his local economy, and just send the people away to the New World.

The Church was complicit in this, and would pack them off compete with their parish priest to the New World. After all, lack of work forced the migration -- just like during the Enclosures in Scotland. And it was for bishops and archbishops to make these decisions, and judge their rectitude. Of course the same class of prelate demands your cooperation on the receiving end. It was the Power of The Church, in those days. Not a power God or the Bible endowed, but, there you have it.

Masks are useless. It's been abundantly clear from the get-go that the virus is in aerosols, not large droplets, and thus masks are useless. The Krauts proved that early on analyzing an outbreak at one of their meat packing plants.

Although this kind of testing is very involved and very expensive, you can detect, within a small population, which individual actually infected another by looking tiny changes in the virus.

They showed that people were infecting people from nearly 100' away. They were all masked. This showed the virus was likely aerosolized.

I think the flaw in that reasoning is that the regime has never tied a lifting of mask mandates to the meeting of some benchmark in vaccinations. Some, like Fauci, have explicitly said you should continue to wear the mask, even if vaxed.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 25, 2021 11:08 PM (eKR8N)

344 Some under the radar scandal recently involving Fauci -

FOIA'd emails - heavily redacted, of course - point to not only the general coverup effort in Feb 2020, but also provided a tip off into some particularly idiotic activities: using genetically modified mice to study human-infecting pathogens. You don't need anything to make a species jump when you made it in a lab in the first place and iterated on it using human surrogate lab animals.

I am thinking more and more that the PRC got conned into thinking the West was paying for bioweapon research in PRC labs, when instead Western progs intended for it to be a lab escape (or simply bribed someone to make it happen) from the start. This would explain a lot of things that went on around Aug 2019 - March 2020.

Posted by: somedood at July 25, 2021 11:14 PM (/z9fK)

345 The mask thing alone dispositively proves we're in a post-scientific, and post-rational, society.

Not only was the issue studied extensively since WWII, with nobody ever finding benefit from general population wearing face coverings, but we've had a massive, global, (idiotic) trial in the last 18 months.

If anyone is aware of *any* data indicating *any* impact of mask-wearing on transmission, hospitalization, or mortality, please bring it to my attention. In return I will give you about all the data there is, which shows the opposite - no correlation whatsoever. But you won't be able to provide any such data.

And why haven't the tiny handful of public figures openly contesting *any* of this self-inflicted disaster confronted CDC et al with the fact that no science, no history, and no contemporary data from this epidemic support efficacy of masks? Parsed words about gain of function, or whether the bug was man-made in Wuhan, are interesting questions, and utterly irrelevant to current, pressing issues.

And those that don't want the vaccine don't bother me a lick. The real anti vaxxers are the Karens that got the vaxx from day one but are still so worried about what other people choose to do with their lives. It makes no sense at all. I am over it.

It's not just that, it's also surface contact. This is why there are so many outbreaks in cold warehouse and food processing facilities; the virus lasts significantly longer with cold and fewer windows. If it was just aerosols, you'd have similar outbreaks cropping up in similar but warmer environments.

Imagine you're in big enclosed space, such as a meat packing plant. You're got active air recirculation going on. Introduce someone in there breathing out aerosols. They mix in that recirculating air all over the place.

Now add in surviving on surfaces to that as mentioned above.

365 In a response to I think a FOIA request - or some other kind of request, can't recall - CDC, in writing, actually said they had no studies showing mask efficacy. I saw this on one of the twatter feeds I used to follow and which I glimpsed briefly, probably over a month ago. Should have linked the original document.

Anyway. Why the F aren't the tiny handful of public figures not mindlessly complying with CDC nonsense screaming about this and beating Fauci the bimbette who replaced the bimbo as head of CDC to pieces with it?

As to "science". Last fall, when asked when the already completed, peer-reviewed, and anxiously awaited large (N=6K) mask efficacy study in Denmark would be published, one of the authors said "when someone has the courage to publish it." (it of course showed no efficacy)

of 190 million that got the vax, only 5,500 have been hospitalized, including those who passed away. That is a serious figure there, that is well under 0.0001 percent. I can look it up if you want, I hope I can find it.

I am not vax proponent as I always say we go our own way. But I think they have shown the vax has worked. There is a reason why places abroad are in turmoil and we are not. This think never freaked me out like it did some for my own personal reasons. I was never really afraid. I took the jab for the reason stated. My choice was just that and not advice for anyone. But for sure the vax has some impact. I don't know what it had on me personally. Hell i could have had the wuflu a year ago and not known it.

Here's an anecdote (not data): a mom told me the reason her kids didn't get sick this past school year like they usually do is because they wore masks. I can't imagine a kid wearing a mask in any kind of sanitary manner. I think the kids were just lucky, or maybe they usually put a lot of not-clean things in their mouths when they aren't masked.

377 of 190 million that got the vax, only 5,500 have been hospitalized, including those who passed away. That is a serious figure there, that is well under 0.0001 percent. I can look it up if you want, I hope I can find it.

I am not vax proponent as I always say we go our own way. But I think they have shown the vax has worked. There is a reason why places abroad are in turmoil and we are not. This think never freaked me out like it did some for my own personal reasons. I was never really afraid. I took the jab for the reason stated. My choice was just that and not advice for anyone. But for sure the vax has some impact. I don't know what it had on me personally. Hell i could have had the wuflu a year ago and not known it. But the statistics show we are doing better and other places are doing worse.

All that really shows is that the chances of the vax killing you in the short term are really small. It has a whole lot less to say about how well the vax protects against the WuFlu. But even the vax evangelists don't claim immunity; they just claim that the vaccinated get less sick.

Fauci may have (knowingly) killed many more than the governors. But he also may be even more "protected" than they are. This video from Bannon on the "Dirty Dozen" (the 12 accused of being America's most dangerous ... for "misinfo").

At 20:00 Kennedy is on saying what seems exactly true .. all the big money, universities and BigPharma, needs approval from Fauci for the BigGov BigBucks. Gov workers directly profit from government funded products.

I've been on airplanes, I've been among the great unwashed, I've been to church (gasp!), I've been to the grocery store, and I've used public toilets on occasion. Some people are just not going to get it, and that's a fact. Nobody bothered to find out why.

I heard 0+blood type is good defense, but no idea if that's true or not. It's not like anybody is studying it. I'm taking D and Zinc, and if I need to, I'll take ivermectin, but so far, no problem.

When people tell me they trust statistics, they never mention how they trust the people gathering, calculating or disseminating them.

I can't judge either, but I can see there isn't much being done in medical facilities to anticipate the dreaded Delta variant, and there was a surprising lack of reported seasonal asthma, allergy based bronchitis and sinus infections last winter locally.

I notice also from reported statistics the inflation price index has remained mostly steady for the last six months, and breakfast for four at a diner yesterday cost $50

but to be fair, that is a big deal. They say if you have it you won't be hospitalized, and it is very unlikely you will spread it. If someone technically has it and it doesn't matter, then that is pretty good. Maybe you are right, it doesn't mean you can't possibly get it. But the real issue is what "getting it" means to a person's life.
I again mention the golfers I have seen. Trump was the same way and he had not vacc. Many get it and after two weeks are quarantine they are fine.

that is a fair point. I will mention my case one last time and really there is nothing more to say. I didn't do it to comply, but really the opposite. I did it so I could never wear the mask again and to refuse to wear it anywhere. I was not afraid, thought that is personal and many have been affected grievously. I did it not out of fear or compliance. It was a choice on a whim. But i decided fine, two weeks an I will never wear the mask anywhere. I only wore them a few minutes a day anyway.

As far as I am concerned, the current WuFlu vax's are all experimental therapies that promise little benefit, and have not been adequately tested to ensure the risks are well understood.

When you have a better than 98% chance of surviving the disease, there seems to be little crying need for a vax that doesn't even claim to prevent it.

405 Using a test to detect a substance under controlled conditions (say titrations of cell culture) is entirely different than diagnosing disease with said test. The transition from lab to clinical testing and diagnosis can be quite prolonged and difficult. There is usually a rigorous attempt to establish a range of false positive/negative and predictive values, which can vary widely with disease prevalence. Seems like some steps may have been skipped with rt-pcr.

Publius, here in Colorado we experienced that post-vaccine spike in cases. Somehow an increase in the vax rate preceded an unseasonal increase in cases. Like, cases usually go down in May after an April high, but they opened jabs to 18+ in April, so cases were increasing in May. No official explanation why so many people getting an "effective" vaccine wouldn't reduce cases.

There's something really bad starting to show up. First, "vaccine failure" is becomming evident. It's showing up in the Brit data, and from Israel. We're a little farther behind their curves, but we're starting to see it here.

The reason is unknown really. THe vaccine protection could be just waning over time, or it could the virus is mutating to get around it. This is why the spike-only immunity that they all target is so stupid. Natural immunity pays little attention to the spikes, because coronaviruses mutate their spikes all the time.

This is why all the talk about "boosters", and they're going to start pushing them here soon. Israel has already launched a booster deal with Pfizer. A 3rd shot for everybody.

I never mention the vax until tonight though I got it long ago. My guess is a lot of the Horde got it too. I would never go to a place that demands a mask though I have been to some sans a mask.

Now, this vaccine failure alone is not what is so concerning. A couple of weeks ago there were some papers out looking at these breakthrough infections.

Turned out the symptomatic breakthrough cases had lower "cycle counts" (the PCR test) than the unvaccinated. This value is dubbed "C_t" or CT. Generally, it's about 28 - 30. The vaccinated cases were showing lower CTs, some outliers as low as 20.

And this is bearing out. The lower the cycle count, the higher the viral load. Each cycle is a factor of 2. So, a cycle count difference of 4, means 16 times the viral load for the lower number.

If that holds, and it appears to, that means the virus is infecting and spreading in the vaccinated, but the symptoms are masked until the viral load gets much higher.

439 >> I'm curious about the effects of the jab on naturally-immune people.

It absolutely screws it up -- there was a paper on that. If you look at the "memory profile" of natural immunity, the pieces of virus your immune system stores and remembers, the spike protein is a very tiny part of that. The other pieces represent the vast majority.

Now, they looked at that profile after vaccination. It shifts it greatly towards the spike, and reduces the overall number of pieces.

Those breakthrough case studies are showing that natural immunity is holding up against all the variants well. Very little breakthrough with that.

446 If that holds, and it appears to, that means the virus is infecting and
spreading in the vaccinated, but the symptoms are masked until the viral
load gets much higher.


Huh, I wonder what the consequences for mortality are for that?

447 >> So, the virus is learning how to overwhelm the vaccine, which in turn means it's a much more serious problem once symptoms present?

It's either the vaccine efficacy is decreasing with time, or the viral mutations are evading it. Could be a combination of both.

See Marek's disease. This shows the perils of vaccinating with a "leaky vaccine", non-sterilizing into active outbreaks.

These vaccines are clearly leaky. They are allowing transmission and infection. And allowing that to happen at higher viral loads before symptoms show up.

That is a perfect recipe for a Marek's disaster. At that could be very well be happening right now. If it does, well you don't want to think about it.

About 15 years ago there was a big medical scare about superflu. Lots of documentaries and all the notable medical experts weighed in on it. The argument was essentially that if everyone gets hyper-vaccinated for everything under the sun, viruses will eventually make it around them and become *really* devastating in the process. Like worse than the Spanish flu pandemic.

I frequently wonder if we're just setting ourselves up for an Act II. Narrated by Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, of course.

The color in Pacific salmon seems to be caused by diet. I have eaten white Spring (Chinook) salmon that was every bit as tasty as the pink kind. Both cases caught by sport fishing, in the same general area.

464 Riots almost always happen for one of two reasons: people who work for a living are going without or people who don't work for a living are doing it for the lulz. The not-works-for-a-living group is totally down with this sickness so they'll only riot if the government tyranny abates, and the works-for-a-living group hasn't been hit all that hard--yet--so they have things they'd rather do.

Other countries are a different kettle of fish. Less capacity to spend their way out of all problems, and less built-up economic and strategic infrastructure to lean back on when things get messy. There will absolutely be wars and revolutions that come out of this, but they'll start in Europe for the same reasons that most of the other wars and revolutions started in Europe.

And one final thing. The higher an individual's viral load, the more infectious they are. They breath out more virus particles.

Asymptomatic transmission was never a problem. They worried about it, bloviated about it, but it never happened.

But now it may. In spades. And with the *vaccinated* population. If this raised the viral load threshold for symptoms to high, then you have a lot of vaccinated people walking around spreading the shit without knowing they are infected.

Talk about a public health fuck up disaster beyond all imagination. Good job, geniuses.

I caution this is not happening enough yet to be a problem. I don't think. But it's becoming a big possibility if trends continue.

but to be fair, that is a big deal. They say if you have it you won't be hospitalized, and it is very unlikely you will spread it. If someone technically has it and it doesn't matter, then that is pretty good. Maybe you are right, it doesn't mean you can't possibly get it. But the real issue is what "getting it" means to a person's life.
****

Literally 100% exactly like America before the vaccine. Remember "wear your mask so grandma doesn't die because asymptomatic spread and you won't even know you're sick?"

You have to admit it's badass that they pulled this no-difference plan off, though.

Well, except for the part where the virus is evolving to try and survive with the vaccines now.

This is a point I've brought up in a few discussions with coworkers: the "follow science and data" position reveals itself to be very hollow and cynical when one considers the vast ocean of vague, often conflicting information floating around such that one can "follow the data" to any conclusion one wants, really. Normally what happens is there's second and third order studies that try to make sense of it all and identify trends, but that takes time--years, often decades--and so it obviously hasn't happened yet. But until that happens it's just another 21st century, internet-fueled case of everyone has an opinion and "their guy" is also saying it, so it must be right.

Reminds me of when Gov. No-Balz announced his mask mandate. His speech included a smug snark along the lines of "President Trump said that masks are okay, so you Republican deplorables are allowed to wear them now." Like, dude, gotta break it to ya, there's a lot of people out there that don't fawn over every word said by either DoctorDoctorDoctor or OrangeManBad. You'd think a guy whose state produced Gov.

A lot of businesses with $$$ are putting UV systems in their HVAC, my employer included. But it's really not going to make a huge difference if it's indoors, at a normal humidity, and you have little or no UV coming in from outdoors. People simply don't wash their damned hands and bathrooms in particular are virtually guaranteed to spread cases.

Despite warning here early that this wasn't just TV hype and bad shit was coming - well before the progs took up this as their ticket to electoral victory and social credit systems, and at a time when we had cases and a lot of people still had never even heard of COVID - we're still on the same box of masks we cracked open from our medical stash in spring of 2020.

Almost all of the leading Dems in the state are from somewhere else. If you look back twenty years and look at governors, senators, and leadership in both houses, it is striking.

Warner was smart when he first got in. The Repubs ran the legislature and he went along with a lot of stuff, mostly the 2a stuff. He passed us Tim Kaine. He was the guy that allowed the slow hand off to the deep Left. It was a smart political move, he did what he could at the time. Now they Left can do anything and they planned it all along.

It's getting late, but I before I go, let me say this. I'm afraid time is getting short. If you've got any bug-out plans, any shit-hit-the-fan plans made, you'd better think about activating them. I would not want to be in the cities or even dense suburbs now.

The probability of the shit hitting the fan is getting appreciable. If this Marek's disease disaster unfolds, we'll know in a month or two. And if it does, it's gonna get bad. If you can lay in any medical supplies, by hook or by crook, get all you can. You don't want to be dependent on the medical system.

Bear in mind the evil side of human nature. The powers that be, the elites are never going to admit they were wrong and do the right thing. All they care about is preserving their power and control. The citizenry mean nothing to them.

All our economic doom and gloom scenarios will be moot if this Marek's shit goes down. Oh, there will be economic destruction like you've never seen, but it will be nothing compared to that.

All this stuff I've been talking about above, the elites know. They have access to all the data, much more than manages to leak out to us. They know what's going on with this. They will blame the unvaccinated. You will become "unclean" and they will encourage the population to hate you.

That's why I say, get away from the dense population. Even if people realize the truth, they will *HATE THE FUCK OUT OF YOU* for not being in the same boat they are. This is human nature. It ain't pretty.

Your existence shows them they were stupid. So blow your brains out to prevent that constant reminder.

All I can do then though, is to make things more expensive to them than to me. I can do that FOR A WHILE. We'll see who first says uncle, yes?

510 I'm Australian. People may disagree on the rights and wrongs of the protest but regarding the horse punch picture...

The media ran VERY hard on it here to upset people (front page websites and leading many TV news bulletins) and it worked. Video footage of the event has since come out and it shows no punch. The horse was pressing against the man, turning and coming back while his arm was up to block fend it off him. No-one was hurt. A still photo makes it look very malicious.

The police found him and have since dropped the charges against him (for that offence).

511 live in a Red Area if you can. The think about every "Red Area" I have experienced, they treat everyone kindly. There have been some major commentaries about this recently because it is the truth. A lib in Red Area is much more content than a conservative in a Lefty area, and for good reason.

It is easy to tell people what to do. But really, get away from all the BS if you can. There are small towns that need people. I never saw a good reason why buying land was a bad thing. Sure it is situational, but that is part of the challenge. If you want to get rich, you expect the suburbs to take over. That was fine even ten years ago, but not so much today.

I was thinking Montana because of the ideal, but a lot of the libs already got it. Really it is Idaho is you want to be left alone. The funny part is that was true forty years ago. People knew that was the place to go if you wanted to check out from all the BS.

There are more, uh, "non-Idahoans" here now than ever before! They're mostly blue-invaders and probably because of midnight drop-shipments of illegals that have been going on since the O'Bastard years. Seriously! We previously had way more french- speakers than spanish- but it's all different now.

I remember when Leno or Letterman mentioned "shrimp on the barbie" to Paul Hogan, he got legitimately pissed. It had nothing to do with his franchise. The other thing about that guy, he was probably the least pc major actor in the Western World. Check out Hogan shows before Dundee, they are a real laugh.

There are massive protests in Oz, London, France, and Italy against the lockdowns and vaccine passports. MSM is silent (other than anti-protest propaganda as mentioned above).

The fucking French, the cheese-eating surrender monkeys are showing more testicular fortitude. The Aussies, Eye-talians, etc. They are taking the streets for freedom.

And what are we Americans doing? Not too much to honor our birthright, are we?

NOVA used to have a tiny Spanish speaking population. The key immigrants were Koreans and South Vietnamese. For some reason DC is pretty much the head place for Ethiopians not living in that country. Today for sure there are a lot of people from Latin America. They need more Mexicans because the food is simply better than the other Latin American alternatives.

553 Altho that roofing company has a point that they are not allowed to give those people the results of their inspection, that does not allow them to be rude to people (if so) over the phone when telling them of that. (could be this gal was abusive over the phone as she was upset to not find out what the results were probably had had bad experiences with the landlord).

And unless they have a recording of the conversations (either one of the parties and WA is a two party consent state) then it's they said vs they said. I doubt they can prove that the review was done to gain that info (altho that depends on what else they've said to other and that can be discovered by ERS) Oh and I love this lawyer dodging the question about slapp when he says that is a motion and this is a lawsuit. *snerk* yeah a motion made in court butthead.

Posted by: jakee308 at July 26, 2021 03:36 AM (wb4G5)

554 That suit by ERS is almost proof of the attitude of the "office manager" as I would bet she is the one who's decided to do it. And her purpose of course is not to get the review with drawn (by suing they've done more to make people know about what happened that that review did) no what's being done is retribution to make this poor couple pay for them calling her out for her rudeness. (that office manager makes me think of Gov Whitmer of Mich. in looks and attitude.) A real beeyotch Karen.

555 Oh and Walmart sells a store brand called Good Value. They make a gallon size (don't get the smaller containers they don't taste the same. ????) of ice cream and their vanilla is to die for. And it also warms and refreezes very well at least once (some ice cream that is watery or full of chemicals doesn't) so you can mix up your own and put it in containers (I use saved cottage cheese containers) and then enjoy in small portions cause it is quite rich. Best ice cream for the money. Less than $6.

569 areas towards Sterling and Loudon County were always Republican. That is the thing with those things, they are Republican right up until they were not. VA had the bragging power of not having voted for Carter, unlike the rest of the South. They always voted Republican until Obama. Now I heard the Repbublicans have lost something like 17 statewide elections in a row. The last Republican governor got crucified for some very complicated deal. The guy before him ran on rescinding the car tax, and he could not get it through.
Virginia is bad for Republicans. Sure it is full of conservatives, tons of them. But that just makes it worse. A bunch of people who want representation and will never get it at the state level. I don't know if it is cheating or the reality of looking around. The place is loaded with lefties, many of whom hated their home states and thing their call is to change ours.
