FIGHTING COMMUNISM WITH A PIANO

Prior to the 1980 US Olympic hockey team’s upset over the Soviet Union, the most famous American triumph over the Evil Empire was Van Cliburn’s shocking victory at the 1958 International Tchaikovsky Competition. His weapon was a piano.

It was April 1958, only six months after the Soviets had flaunted their technological might by launching the first Sputnik satellite; the Tchaikovsky competition was supposed to display their cultural superiority as well. Cliburn, 23 at the time, came, saw and, against all odds, triumphed. His performances of the Tchaikovsky First Piano Concerto and the Rachmaninov Third Concerto at the competition finale earned him a standing ovation that went on for nearly 10 minutes.

When I was growing up in Texas in the 1970s, this East Texas son of the oil patch was a living Texas legend. He was held in the same esteem as Sam Houston, Audie Murphy, and Roger Staubach. Among my musical regrets is that I never saw him perform. Here’s a clip of him playing the National Anthem before a Texas Rangers baseball game in 1994.

NO “STRANGE NEW RESPECT”

Have you ever noticed that Dan Quayle and Sarah Palin never earned the media’s “strange new respect” that most national GOP candidates eventually get? Good for them.

"I have been asked who caused the riots and the killing in LA, my answer has been direct & simple: Who is to blame for the riots? The rioters are to blame. Who is to blame for the killings? The killers are to blame." (Dan Quayle)

"We see America as the greatest force for good in this world. Our opponent though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country." (Sarah Palin)

The media still loathe Quayle and Palin for speaking hard truths. I only want to vote for candidates who will never earn the media’s “strange new respect.”

CULTURES ARE DIFFERENT – A SAFE ETHNIC JOKE*

(*We’re having a laugh at the expense of Europeans.)

A European gentleman, who was well traveled but not a church-goer, was in the autumn of his life, so he sought out a pastor to help him understand the afterlife. When he asked the pastor to describe heaven in terms that a layman could understand, the pastor replied:

“In Heaven the cooks are all French. The mechanics are German. The police are British. The lovers are Italian. And the organizers are Swiss.”

The gentleman then asked him to explain Hell.
“In Hell, the police are German. The mechanics are French. The cooks are British. The lovers are Swiss. And the organizers are Italian.”

RE-TRAINING YOUR TASTE BUDS

Are there foods that you taught yourself to like because you wanted to be the kind of person who liked that food? Or maybe because you wanted to experience the pleasure that others enjoyed with that food?

A Method To Learn To Love A Food You Dislike

When I was young, oysters were considered a special treat in my family, but I couldn’t stand them. (The oysters, that is. I liked my family.) By my early 20s I was running with some buddies who loved oysters, and I really wanted to enjoy the "oyster bar experience" with them. I forced myself to eat those slimy things and now I absolutely love oysters – raw, fried, baked, you name it.

What foods did you teach yourself to like?

BUCK THOUGHTS

People who “dance like there’s nobody watching” only dance that way when somebody is watching.

*****

WHO DOESN’T WANT TO WEAR THE RIBBON

I didn’t wear the ribbon. I don’t wear pink in October. I will not wear the mask. And I’ll never take a knee.

There are much deeper principles involved than just my refusal to wear a symbol in support of the cause du jour. But my first reaction when told I must fall in line with the crowd will always be “No.”

Woman: “You don’t want to wear an AIDS ribbon?”
Kramer: “Ah. No. No.”
Woman: “But you have to wear the AIDS ribbon.”
Kramer: “I have to?
Woman: “Yes.”
Kramer: “Yeah, see, that’s why I don’t want to.”

THROCKMORTON’S FIRST LAW OF LIVE MUSIC: IF THERE’S AN UPRIGHT BASS IN THE BAND, IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE GOOD

Monte Warden is a Texas Music Hall of Famer. He took Rockabilly back to the country charts in the late 1980s with his band The Wagoneers when he was barely 20 years old. If you were watching CMTV videos back then, you probably saw his videos. Monte later filled up his walls with gold records by writing songs for the likes of George Strait and Travis Tritt. Monte is now moving in a different retro direction. He has a new band named The Dangerous Few playing “martini music” in a Pop Jazz / Crooner style. I like it.

Here is George Strait singing Desperately, co-written by Monte Warden and Bruce Robison.

*****

THE GREATEST PLAY IN NFL HISTORY

Sure, the “Immaculate Reception” was memorable. “The Catch” by Dwight Clark was OK. But give me Doug Flutie’s drop kick any day. The only drop-kick in the NFL since 1941 was the coolest play I ever saw.

It looks like the Seattle Left is starting to purge itself, in finest Stainst tradition.

At Twichy, via Hot Air,

https://preview.tinyurl.com/yacymgjg

Title:

"Let them fight: Seattle's moonbat mayor brings up possibility of expulsion of socialist councilwoman..."

From the first listed tweet:

"Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan transmitted a letter to the City Council, urging members to take action against Councilwoman Sawant, up to and including expulsion."

I assume "expulsion" from the City Council, but we are dealing with Leftists/Socialists, so Relocation/Labor Camps are a distinct possibility.


Yes, this is funny.

Kraft Garlic & Cheddar, in the 6oz. "squeezy-tube" is some of the most potent bait on the planet for catfish. Carry it on ice in a cooler, squeeze out enough to form a ball of cheese on the ol' treble hood, and send it out.

Oddly enough, it's also THE secret weapon on the State Hatchery released Rainbow Trout, that Texas puts into the water below Canyon Lake Dam, late in January or early in February.

When salmon eggs fail and kernels of corn do nothing, then break out the squeezy cheese.

A salmon-egg sized daub on a small, single hook, just enough to cover the point and barb.

BB sized split shot on the line 10" above the hook, and cast it into the stream. You'll limit out, much to the ire of banks lined with frustrated fishermen and women.

CARMEL, Ind. - A Carmel priest is facing criticism following comments he made about the Black Lives Matter movement, calling demonstrators "maggots and parasites at best, feeding off the isolation of addiction and broken families."

That's prompted the new group Carmel Against Racial Injustice (CARI) to call for Father Ted Rothrock's removal as pastor of St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church.

Unfortunately, Cliburn is all too associated with his performance of the Tchaikovsky First Concerto, but his repertoire was much broader than that and all were accomplished. I've always loved his Brahms Second Concerto accompanied by Fritz Reiner (a very exacting tyrant) and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

221 I learned to eat anchovies. Us conservatives on the university student Senate would go have pizza after the monthly meeting.

My brother and I noticed that we always seemed to be buying the pizza but rarely getting more than a slice or two.

So we learned to at least eat anchovies. Once we could eat them without gagging we started ordering the pizzas with anchovies. Of course, the moochers were shocked and couldn't stand them and stopped eating our pizzas.

After a couple months we went back to ordering our non-anchovie pizza. When a mooch would asked who bought the pizza and found out it was us. They assumed it had anchovies and ordered their own pizza.

Not exactly. It's not an ideology thing. IIRC, the council member led a "protest" group to the Mayor's house. It's payback for that.


Payback is clearly a major part, but it looks like substantially more.

Sawant has been pushing violence and various whacky Leftist poverty stuff (and she grew up in India) for a while, and more than a few people are getting tired of her.

Further, Sawant shows the next step of Socialism. No one wants it, and the other City Council members don't want to lose their jobs.

261 Evening, Horde.

It rained all day today, so I drove into Calgary to do some much-needed shopping. No line-up to get into any of the businesses I entered. Some masks in evidence, but even in the Chinese supermarket, it was under 50%.

Co-Op supermarkets have a new type of plastic bag. Label says it's "green" and "compostable", but the plastic is silky soft, and feels downright luxurious, with a matte textured surface. Seem plenty strong; they have a lot of stretch in them before they tear.

And the transmission shop was right out of pan gaskets for the Warner Gear Type 35. "They don't move very fast. But we will put them on the stock order. Do you want me to add 5 on the order for you?" "OK, thanks."

There was a bad incident on camera that made Ford look uncoordinated. Chevy Chase ran with it on SNL and blew it way out of proportion.

As for Bush, I saw a political cartoon back during the 1988 campaign that had Mike Dukakis in a simple army uniform pointing to George Bush wearing an aviator's jacket, aviator's glasses, and badges with his various assignments (including CIA). Dukakis's line was "Get a load of the wimp."

You should feel freed.


Even if the Ronas was the most deadly disease ever?

The face touching, snot-storing, spit-smearing Maskrotums will not have slowed it even one iota.


Masks are not medically sound. They are made up talismans of protection for the weak and stupid.

Masks in real life, do to you and your opinions what Twitter and Facebook censors do to your concervative messages and Tweets.

They can't have you free and speaking freely. They can't sleep until they shut you up.


Strap on the mask and they win.

432 The really bad thing about these mask mandates is that the country as a whole is starting to see fewer and fewer deaths per day - as is common with ANY illness - and that trend is likely to continue on its own, regardless of what we may or may not do.

However, the stupid ones will see the natural decline as somehow having magically happened precisely BECAUSE people went back to wearing masks in public, so now they will be required every time that a new virus sweeps the globe.

China did this to get rid of pesky protestors.

"Let them fight: Seattle's moonbat mayor brings up possibility of expulsion of socialist councilwoman..."

From the first listed tweet:

"Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan transmitted a letter to the City Council, urging members to take action against Councilwoman Sawant, up to and including expulsion."

I assume "expulsion" from the City Council, but we are dealing with Leftists/Socialists, so Relocation/Labor Camps are a distinct possibility.


Yes, this is funny.

Posted by: Arbalest at June 30, 2020 10:19 PM (FlRtG)
--------------------

It gets better.

The charges that Mayor Jenny is hauling up Sawant on are all 3 weeks old, Sawant unlocked the City Hall doors 3 weeks ago and trashed the place with thousands of her friends. Sawant was always supporting rioters as they destroyed the downtown business district.

But that was not what ticked off Jenny. On Sunday, Sawant led a crowd of a hundred chanting fleabags to the front door of Mayor Jenny's classic mini-mansion, overlooking beautiful Lake Washington. It's only a mile or so from the Nation of CHOP, so it wasn't like it was difficult. Actually, it looks like they took a couple of city buses to get there.
TV cameras followed the CHOP residents as they left their Nation and journeyed into the United States, to visit Mayor Jenny and tell her what they think.

Anyway, bringing in anarchists, even ones with that nice Seattle vibe, is apparently a no-no.

To recap:

[OK] Destroy City Hall and full support of anarchists destroying miles of downtown Seattle

[NOT OK] Peaceful protest on the street in front of Mayor Jenny's house.

I wouldn't ask my doctor for a fake note to get out of mask wearing.

I'm not playing their games. They can arrest me. Then I won't show up to court. They can arrest me again for that too.

They can shoot me, for that matter. I'm not going to acquiesce.

Society can view me as the stupid guy that got himself shot over a mask or the victim of an oppressive government and mob mentality.

I don't really fucking care. But I'm not wearing the fucking mask and I'm not paying their fines for non-crime.

466 Mask fear seems to be up in southern Colorado. Colorado Springs today looked very weird to me because of all the masks. A friend of mine who lives there is a radiologist. She tells me she wears a mask because of how the lungs of Covid patients look in scans. Of course, at work she wears all kinds of protective gear, the kind you throw away when you leave the area.

I guess in my case, I would rather be exposed to small doses of other people's germs so that I can develop immunity. (I don't work in healthcare.). I predict the next flu season is going to be a doozy if people keep taking extreme precautions.

I really hoped people would notice what was going on and get tired of the charade. I guess they can still be manipulated by fear.

Inslee is such a government tool.


In the future, make sure you call them by name.

The Inslee Bankruptcies
The Inslee Divorces
The Inslee Suicides
The Inslee Domestic Beatings

All because Inslee ignores real science in favor of Bill Gates - style modelling, and ignores the real live situations that must be balanced with shutting down a country.

The statistics are bunk and not indicative of what is happening, and have little relevance to what is: the death rate from COVAD.

It continues to fall. And more people are getting infected each day. GOOD! Heard immunity is getting closer. And elderly can stay in quarantine, not the general working and functioning population.

But come November 4, suddenly none of it will matter any more. Because that is what this limited virus turned sham is all about.

Inslee and his cocktail party friends that run this state hate Trump. Inslee is a soldier in the Leftist Grift Machine. So are his friends.

Potential Mechanism for Lung Injury In COVID-19










An overactive defense response may lead to increased blood
clotting, disease severity, and death from COVID-19. A phenomenon called
NETosis--in which infection-fighting cells emit a web-like substance to
trap invading viruses--is part of an immune response that becomes
increasingly hyperactive in people on ventilators and people who die

Re: Soros
A lot of the BLM corporate shakedown protection racket money goes to Equal Justice Initiative.


From Breitbart:

>>>The memo states Soros-financed groups and activists influenced Obama's police reform task force. One of the nine members of the task force was Bryan Stevenson, identified on the final task force report itself as "Founder and Executive Director, Equal Justice Initiative." However, as the Soros document highlights, Stevenson also serves on the board of the Open Society Foundations' U.S. Programs. The Foundations' document also states that a number of Soros-financed organizations gave testimony to Obama's police reform task force.

532 FWIW:

ASHEVILLE - Buncombe County Sheriff Quentin Miller initially will not issue citations for organizations that do not enforce Gov. Roy Cooper's mask order, but may ultimately begin doing so if businesses do not voluntarily comply.

Asheville police will enforce the measure from the start. And both law enforcement bodies are prepared to issue trespassing or other charges for patrons who are asked to comply but refuse.

"The Sheriff's Office is asking for voluntary compliance with the Executive Order and we hope that our community continues to take COVID-19 seriously," sheriff's office spokesman Aaron Sarver said via email on Monday. "We will not be issuing citations to businesses."

Cooper's requirement went into effect at 5 p.m. June 26, mandating that face coverings be worn in most public settings. It is part of North Carolina's effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 after cases and hospitalizations surged in the state.

In making the call, the Democratic governor cited growing scientific evidence that shows cloth face coverings, when worn consistently, can decrease the spread of COVID-19, especially among those who are not showing symptoms of the virus.

The order allows law enforcement to issue citations to businesses who do not enforce the measure on their property, but not to individuals on the street.['i] Officers also may issue charges for patrons or visitors who refuse to comply and do not leave when businesses ask them to do so.
----

So, the Governor is transferring the burden to businesses.

Wiki mentions that she obtained her (US) citizenship in 2010, and she's married to a US Citizen (so, Green Card, at least), but Sawant is a rather hard-core Socialist, as is her husband, and I have the feeling that "something" is being finessed, and everyone is just assuming ....

589 we used to have to scrub off the anodiziation and shine brass with Brasso. You shined your boots with Kiwi and water and that is it. There was other stuff you could use to shine your boots but it looked like crap and anyone could tell it was bogus. I could shine the hell out of some boots but it took forever. You had to get into it really and it became therapeutic in a way. It is kind of like cleaning a detail stripped weapon for some people.

For infantry it might come off as kind of absurd and an affectation. But all of those tests taught you something. Even drill was a favorite of mine. I would win any Simon says drill contest. The key was focus and listening to the order. The funny thing is, I am not normally focused or a clean freak, the opposite is the case. But in those particular circumstances, they were a challenge that I wanted to take on.

I sometimes wonder what people think of drill in the modern military. It can seem outdated and a waste of time, but it builds unity and esprit de corps. When they used linear tactics, the unit that was sharper in their movements was likely the one to win in battle.

593 ..Barnacle-B-Gon

*careens from side to side*

Posted by: Miklos, cash only Cap'n at July 01, 2020 01:57 AM (QzkSJ)



Bottom paint job done in Roatan, Honduras. Paint was about 60% copper, 20% lead, 1% cyanide of some metallic form, and all suspended in some highly toxic form of alkylyd paint of suspicious origin.

First year it was on the boat, I did *not* contract for the routine "every 3 months" bottom scrubbing by a diver with a 3M nylon scrubbie.

Did not want to be responsible for killing a diver under my hull.

But the paint worked. For six years, never even a hint of a barnacle, and only after six years, did some hints of algae begin to show up.

Apologies to various Galveston Bay subsea life forms which might've visited the zone of the Sloop New Dawn. I meant you no individual harm, unless you were a barnacle.

In which case I'm glad you died.

Melted Kiwi to *apply* the wax. (it goes deep into the leather and STICKS).

Iced water for the polish. Because, harder wax, better shine.

And no one has ever improved on cotton balls for the process. But the final shine? Lamb's wool strop, applied by ONLY the most experienced shoe shine station operative.

There is ONE acceptable alternative to the traditionally shined .mil leather.

Cochoran Jump Boot, in Corfam, worn on Front Gate duty or Honor Guard for funerals or such.

In which case Pledge spray Furniture Polish, finished with chilled water and cotton ball, would produce a MIRROR sheen of the deepest black.

Pretty much the only way an Airman on rotating gate duty could make shift in "inspection order" without his every waking hour going to polishing, polishing, polishing.

614 Had to teach myself to like most foods I like now. Was an impossibly picky eater well into my early teens.
Learned to like pizza that wasn't just cheese on bread, burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, chicken that wasn't McNuggets (only McNuggets. Hated other nuggets.) Lunchmeat, tuna, deli sandwiches, egg sandwiches, eggs in general, cereal with milk, pasta with something other than grated cheese or salt and butter, Chinese food, meatballs, and even more I can't remember.

You may feel sorry for me after reading all that, but to me it was awesome because I got to learn to appreciate the foods other people look down on as "kid food." Their deliciousness is unmatched by most restaurant food I've eaten. I still won't eat shrimp though.

To me they might as well bring out a Big Mac and fries at a 5 star restaurant because that's what I'd rather be eating anyway.

I don't think we can be friends. Just kidding my man. I am glad I was not a picky eater. I wonder where that comes from really. Everyone has their hang ups I guess. My dad didn't like liver or lamb so it was never served at our table.

I used to hate cucumbers for some reason but i love them now. I even found a way to like beets but only in a really well made borscht. Hell, I never had much interest in any melon (insert joke hear) but I love berries and other fruits.


One of my earliest childhood memories was when the adults let me get two plates of shrimp at a restaurant. And that was back in the day when there was no such thing as all you can eat.

I'm going to put my Confederate flag back up soon too. The last one got faded and kind of ragged out so I took it down. The flag pole needs painting. If it ever stops raining here for a day or two I'll get it painted and put my new flag back up. For the same reason your neighbor did. I don't like people telling me how to live. If I want to own a gun and cling to my Bible that's what I'll do. If I want to fly a flag (any flag) that's my business. I'm not breaking any laws, so far, so if people don't like it they can just F.O. and deal with it. It's not my problem, it's THEIR problem.

BLM posturing concern for BLACK LIVES MATTER, has been a movement that has caused the deaths of many follower black lock-steppers and innocent black bystanders lives.

Time for a little innernet while I have breakfast. Shortly I will head out to bring my car to the shop for oil change, tire rotation, and engine air filter. (I really tried to change the filter. But I couldn't get that big hose off the air box, and I was afraid if I put my back into it I'd break something. Modern cars! Safe and economical as they may be. they are not easy for owners to do even simple things.)

After this, the big Buick should be good for another six months' puttering to the grocery and, maybe, commuting to and from work.

I hated spinach as a kid. That was a classic hide it under a napkin and sneak it in the trash. But that was the frozen Birds Eye crap. Wasn't until I was nearly thirty that I tried raw spinach in a spinach salad with hot bacon dressing that I changed my mind. To this day I do not like cooked spinach, but I do like it uncooked.

I'll never like Brussels Sprouts. I don't want to hear one more time that, oh you just wrap them in bacon and roast them and blah blah blah. No. They are still Brussels Sprouts and they are still asshoe.

711 you made this point the other day but it was the first time I saw it. It was a good point and good info there. I didn't know that Mcdonalds would help out someone if their business failed in that way. That is smart by McDonalds no doubt.

My problem with tweeting, texting, and even chatting on blogs is that it is difficult to express your complete ideas on a subject in a few one liners. Maybe I am just not good at it, I do better talking one on one.

There are obviously positives and negatives about the franchise model. But no doubt there are positives to the franchisee. I would guess that the number one positive is that you get to align yourself with a respected brand and you also get their support. For sure the company want's their franchisees to succeed, it only makes sense for them to feel that way. And Mcds has an incredible record. We used to hear that an individual Mcd's franchise pulled down over a million a year, and that was back in the day so to speak. It it likely a lot more today. And I have never seen a Mcd's close. I am sure it happens but I have not seen it.

I have seen a Pizza Hut and a Wendy's go out of business in my area alone.

No doubt the franchise model works for both parties if it is done properly. But things do happen, the market is the final arbiter.


809 621 correction. Over 80 percent of Mcdonald's
restaurants are franchises. There are a lot of benefits to the franchise
model for the parent company. Who want's to worry about the success of
an individual locale or deal with the overhead and staffing for example.





You buy the franchise, McDonald's picks a location and sends you to
their school. If the location fails they will buy you a different
location. If that fails it's your fault.



McDonald's puts a lot of support into making their franchisees successful.

Yep.

Systemic racism is YOU believing that blacks are incapbable of succeeding without you making concessions to account for their lower IQ, lower cultural motivation, lower abilities, and lower tolerance for coming to or being at work.

I think they're 100% equal to whites in IQ and ability, and that makes me a racist.

She'd add a tablespoon of vinegar sometimes when the other food was greasy. It gave the vegetables a different more bright flavor.

I tend to avoid Craftsman these days, but we've got some regular and soaker hoses of theirs that have held up for years. They were the higher priced ones and came with a lifetime warranty. That probably has a lot to do with it.

Doesn't look like that warranty is worth anything anymore (can you exchange Sears' Craftsman items at Lowes? Hmm...), but they've been good hoses.

Twenty-five hours a day we rant and rave about those darned Kolledge Kids and their hellish professors, all indoctrinatin' and shit. Meanwhile right in the center of our lives we have the very same evil, but these are our social friends and livelihoods, so we just choose not to notice.

Ok so who are the people pressuring you tube into demonetizing?

Posted by: clutch at July 01, 2020 07:18 AM

They provided an example of that in the thread:

youtube was originally not woke. It was a free platform. It would have been in the NEUTRAL category.

So what do the woke do about this?

Well, what DID they do...

First they mapped out youtube and the power relations of people on the right:

Then gaywonk (Carlos Maza) pressured youtube DURING PRIDE WEEK by saying scrowder (Steven Crowder) was engaged in homophobic harrassment

This put Youtube in a "decision dillema" where they have to respond but have no good options.

Youtube can give Carlos Maza what he wants and de-platform Crowder (one of their larger creators) and outrage conservatives, or they can refuse Carlos Maza's demands and then Maza's LGBT allies attack youtube for allowing homophobia DURING PRIDE WEEK.

See? no good options

Youtube tried to strike a balance by demonetizing Steven Crowder. This means that youtube went from being neutral and staying out of it, to being a passive ally: they no longer let Crowder earn money from advertising.

See how this works? They find the target, find out who has power, and then apply pressure to shift that target to their position.

I could say a lot more about specific tactics (and I will) but for today I want to you to see just how sophisticated this all is.

The woke people are a well oiled machine of protest, mobbing, intimidation and social pressure. Until we realize that and begin organizing to fight back we will always be on our back foot.

836 AOC, the gift that keeps giving for NYC. And they must love it! She sent 25k jobs packing, and she wants them to have greatly reduced police protection. And the voters say, awesome, when can I vote for her!?

837 The "woke machine" is run by people with too much time on their hands. Who the heck has time to map out how to take over a knitting website?! Shouldn't they be, y'know, knitting?


These people don't seem to have jobs, and if they do, it's for a "nonprofit." Even more reasons to end the welfare state and tax breaks for "awareness" or similar nonsense organizations.

838 Was in downtown Houston yesterday for a meeting - actual meeting. City is a ghost town except for the random bum wandering down the street like a zombie movie. There is no economic activity to be seen - not sure what the daily take was from a half a million people working in a ten square block area was, but zero can't be good for Mayor Turnover and the Commandante.

So they mix up the days to fool the CCP virus?

Or are those in-school days "Burn and Loot" days so that the Wuhan Death Miasma deactivates?

she'll be funding "her" police with the graft!

Ditto. Problem is, my choices for shopping are dwindling really
fast. I'm being left nowhere to shop without my stomach turning.

I like their pistachio ice cream but will never eat it again. I would rather go with Haagen Dazs or Blue Bell because screw those hippies. They are also sell outs to the man.

Went on a tour of their plant back in the 90's and on an employee's bulletinboard there was a flyer for a company sponsored excursion to a protest in Quebec against some hydroelectric project.
I remember thinking "Since when is this Canadian project any of your goddamn business?" I've avoided their overpriced crap ever since. Self righteous assholes!

854 The following requirements will be in place for all schools whether operating in a hybrid or traditional model:

--- Large group gatherings will be avoided at school buildings
--- Face coverings are required except while eating, drinking and exercising (with very limited exceptions for students and staff with medical conditions precluding wearing of a mask or face shield; those medical conditions must be documented)
--- Schools must adhere to social distancing requirements of their designated category
--- All staff must be screened every day, including a temperature check and review of potential symptoms upon arrival at school
--- All staff must participate in ongoing surveillance testing
--- All sites must coordinate with local health officials to conduct contact tracing and rapid response testing
--- All transportation staff and students boarding buses must wear face coverings
--- Meals must be provided to students during both in-person instruction and remote learning.


So students and teachers will have to wear face coverings all day? Even when teaching/talking?

Yeah, that's going to work really well.

And they have to provide meals to students on the days they learn from home? What the hell?
