AOC Puts on Mask For a Photo Op-- Then Immediately Takes It Off When the Photo Is Taken

Phony flake.

Do what we say, not what we do. We are The Regime. We have special immunity from all of the restrictions and obligations we impose on you.

Shockingly, Noted Hysteric, Self-Care Enthusiast, and Murder Victim Alexandria Donkey-Chompers also called Simone Biles' decision to quit the competition and focus on her "mental health" brave.

I think the Simone Biles' quitting incident is provoking a lot of ire less due to the actual quitting, and more due to infantile leftwing feminists insisting that literally everything a woman does, including quitting a competition, is "brave."

Male athletes are not called "brave" for quitting a competition or sitting a game out. That doesn't mean they're criticized for doing so, if they have adequate cause. If a running back's foot is fractured and he could play but would only be at 90% and would also risk aggravating it, a lot of people would say of his decision to sit a game out, "It was a tough call but probably the right one" or would call the decision prudent.

Prudent -- but not brave. And prudence, of course, is the wise decision to avoid risk. Which is kind of the opposite of bravery. Prudence is a good thing, but it is, seriously, kind of the opposite of bravery. Not to the extent that cowardice is a perfect opposite.

But definitely on the other side of the Risk-Seeking Vs. Risk-Avoidance graph.

But now when a female athlete withdraws from a competition either because of stress or, it is said, she lost mental focus while in the air and this put her safety in danger -- the infantile feminist left insists on calling her "brave" for avoiding risk.

Again, I'm not saying that this wasn't a sound call or a prudent call. Bad risks should be avoided.

But I will insist it's not brave.

This is the Olympics, after all. The equivalent of a Super Bowl -- and you would generally expect a running back, even one with a fractured foot who might re-aggravate it if he plays, to play anyway in the Super Bowl.

Simone Biles was not "brave."

But that's what the infantile woman-children of the far left insist it is.

This old article from 2003 -- back when The Onion was funny -- has never been more true.

50 From what bits and pieces of news reporting on Biles I have read it appears she suffered withdrawal symptoms from adderall discontinuation, she was dizzy and unfocused which made gymnastics dangerous, and she and the Olympic team coach and doctors milked it for all they could to further the mental health victim status. Coming home without competing was going to hurt Simones money train so a routine was designed on beam that had enough difficulty to not be embarrassing but was safe enough to do. Had her competitors not had bad performances she would not of medaled. But she is now a mental health hero.

She loses focus at the Olympics after having just dominated at the US trials? OK, I can accept that.

But to then call that loss of focus a mental health issue is an absolute insult to those actually suffering from mental illness.

That most of these situations happen to coincide with women's empowerment is true (hey there, shout that abortion!), it does often follow a path of holding no one accountable for anything and reveling in it.

74 Apparently, Ms. Biles pulled out of the various competitions because she had a case of "The Twisties", a supposedly common malady suffered by gymnasts where their internal gyroscope gets fouled up, resulting in the inability to perform a lot of complex maneuvers involving twisting in 3 dimensions.

Which is what she should have said in the first place, instead of "I'm dropping out to focus on my mental health"* . . .

She was able to compete and win the Bronze in the balance beam because that event only requires moves in 2 dimensions, though she did have to simplify her dismount to avoid the possibility of skull-decking.

He'd be savaged by the press, his GOAT status revoked, and he'd forever be called a pussy. But we're not even allowed to QUESTION Biles' cowardly decision to refuse to compete. She was not physically injured. She gave "evolving" and vague excuses about not being mentally right. I think the real reason is that she was worried she would lose to the competition and decided to take the easy way out.

86 C19 is a very real threat to those who are in a higher-risk category who might develop a serious case.

Just like all diseases are, to different cohorts.

It is not, however, much of a threat to most of the population. Which is why universal measures make no sense, and have never been used before for anything with these characteristics. 60+ are reco'd to get flu shots (leaving aside that these shots apparently have made no difference, based on actual long-term data) - but 20-yr olds aren't. For a reason.

For the same reason, the most vulnerable should isolate/take steps to protect themselves. Everyone will happily help and cooperate. General "mitigation" measures are *not* such steps (leaving aside, again, that they lack efficacy anyway).

Which frankly, is pretty old to be in gymnastics, but ...that is true. She is 24. She may also be a little emotionally backward, and did this whole quitting schtick to get more attention. Not impressed.

But..we will see her a lot more in Subway commercials. Along with Megan Rapinoe.

This reminds me, if your employer is pressuring you to get the clot shot or get fired, do not ever tell them your vax status. Let them fire you for refusal to provide confidential medical information to them, not because you admitted that you aren't vaccinated.

The Biden Administration is telling you to get vaccinated AT THE SAME TIME it's telling you vaccinated people can still catch & spread COVID because of the Delta variant AT THE SAME TIME it's telling you that it's not clear how they test for the Delta variant.
AT THE SAME TIME the Biden administration is also telling you to put your masks BACK ON and prepare for lockdowns whether you're vaccinated or not!

The US female gymnastics team has been living in Hell. Apparently for years, if not decades, unbeknownst to any of the mainstream until the first major assault / abuse accusation was levied.

Honestly, had the entire team at the time resigned after the cases played out and the dust started to settle, I would have been alright with that. You've been through shit. I get it. Hopefully they'd stick around help make sure what got rebuilt was a better environment for the next group of aspiring competitors.

For whatever reason, she wanted to stick around and keep competing. Or she was pressured into it. Or she thought she could put it behind her. And it didn't work out.

Bingo. My conspiracy theory is that they have a treatment/cure in hand, but are not releasing it since they can continue and increase their control.
____________

There was an article linked here the other day that said that the reason the government keeps insisting that ivermectin and HCQ don't work against the virus (despite the many reports by treating physicians that they do work, especially when given early on) is this: per federal regs, pharmaceutical companies can't get "emergency use authorization" for vaccines unless they can show that there are no effective treatments available for the condition the vaccine is targeting.

So the only way the government could give Big Pharma the EUA and okay the experimental vaccines for everybody was by denying that ivermectin and HCQ work -- even though they do work, and the government knows they work.

179 Because of course

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) publicly applauded U.S. gymnast Simone Biles after she withdrew from the U.S. women's Olympic team final on Tuesday.

"I love and admire Simone Biles and our Olympians," Romney tweeted. "Beyond their determination and sacrifice, they evidence the greatness of the human spirit, in victory and in defeat."

He added, "I take pride in them, not so much for the medals they win as for the grace, humanity & character of their hearts."

At least now we know he's not a RACIST.

Posted by: ... at August 05, 2021 02:42 PM (Lic/8)

180 Well at least she recognized she would totally eff up the team if she kept going and allowed others team mates to compete. She's tied for the most medals of any US gymnast so I am not going to question her talent. If she was going through withdrawal she should have figured that out ahead of time I suppose.

She doesn't strike me as particularly good at remembering orders or remembering recipes.

So she probably had to look a lot of stuff up, and then brought your date a fuzzy navel when she ordered a cosmo.

Which is why the "stories" about her bartending days are mostly about how she bravely-boldly spearheaded Tip Jar Equity. The staff remembers her more than the regulars.

They got back their bluetooth speaker and pair of shoes, but the homeless guys weren't about to let their loot go freely. They attacked the couple and car with a five foot pole, a machete, rocks, and fists.

The couple managed to get in the car and drive through the zombie horde, killing one of them. Two of the zombies, the one with the pole and the one with the machete were arrested. They have a combined 21 felonies between them.

The couple is not expected to be charged. Oh, and the couple stupidly brought their toddler for the cultural experience.

Nope - there isn't a one mile stretch of any highway anywhere that doesn't have a pot hole, or large crack, or a car disabled on the side of the road, or dead animals, or traffic cones, or, even fucking everyday traffic. You'd have to close whole sections of entire highways, fix every thing, clear everything off the road, fill in every pot hole or crack, and then get the cooperation of LE and the State to hold the road open...and no state in the US has ever been able to do that.

After that impossible mission, try and get military pilots to come in hot and land on a 20 foot wide runway....

252 Nope - there isn't a one mile stretch of any highway anywhere that doesn't have a pot hole, or large crack, or a car disabled on the side of the road, or dead animals, or traffic cones, or, even fucking everyday traffic. You'd have to close whole sections of entire highways, fix every thing, clear everything off the road, fill in every pot hole or crack, and then get the cooperation of LE and the State to hold the road open...and no state in the US has ever been able to do that.

After that impossible mission, try and get military pilots to come in hot and land on a 20 foot wide runway....

258 Maybe the runway thing is why billboards have to be so far from the Interstate. Except....where the Interstate crosses an Indian reservation. I see that on the NY thruway. Not many billboards for miles, but when they go through an Indian reservation, billboards are like every 100 feet, and close to the highway. Although I-95 has plenty of billboards, (Pedro says) so it might just be a NYS rule.

This is an important distinction:

In other words, they love "rent." Indeed, they want everyone to rent. But only as long as their government is the Landlord.

Yep, the "peaceful protests" that people supposedly didn't listen to were never "peaceful" to begin with, and the protests were essentially "how dare you arrest and prosecute blacks for committing crimes! Blacks should have the right to commit crimes with no adverse consequences to them!"

So trying to justify the violence by claiming that nobody would listen to the "peaceful protests" is just bullshit.

325 I competed in gymnastics when I was younger and I disagree with Nurse Rached.

You don't bow out of anything for "mental reasons" and remain Brave. It is just not done.

I also don't buy the "its dangerous" argument. She has any number of fallback moves that still beat her teammates moves. She has done all of these routines thousands of times in practice. Even if she screws-up it is extraordinarily unlikely that it would be so bad as to result in an injury.

She took the spot of another potential Olympian and did not even bother completing the task.

Since she was the best on all (or most) of the events, she was not replaced by the second best - but the fifth best gymnast on each event. That has a devastating impact on the team score.

Bizarrely, she did chose to compete on the balance beam - the event that requires the most balance and airsense.

Nope - there isn't a one mile stretch of any highway anywhere that doesn't have a pot hole, or large crack, or a car disabled on the side of the road, or dead animals, or traffic cones, or, even fucking everyday traffic. You'd have to close whole sections of entire highways, fix every thing, clear everything off the road, fill in every pot hole or crack, and then get the cooperation of LE and the State to hold the road open...and no state in the US has ever been able to do that.

After that impossible mission, try and get military pilots to come in hot and land on a 20 foot wide runway....

407 I announce I was wuflu positive a couple of weeks ago. No symptoms. Sawbones wanted me to have DanMa'am tested. Positive, no symptoms.

We're both unpositive now.

We both suspected our two day flu in January/February 2020 could have been wuflu but there was no vaccines then so whatever.

Everything I'm reading says natural immunity is better than vaccine immunity. Sawbones is going to test for antibodies next week.

There is very little cover for the millions of us in our condition.

At moderate fuel load no payload, extremely high steam. It wasn't a useful test.

You can't comply with navy sea-state boat heave Nz requirements for any of those type of aircraft's gear. You'd have to have a multi-stage strut half the height of the fuselage for a 150K go-around abort in rough sea-state. You'd have to design a new type of landing platform that could damp sea roll/pitch substantially better than any aircraft carrier known to land a big 150K+ cargo craft and meet typical navair reqs.

lol have you seen our military these days?

This is not the military of the 80's. After decades of decaying standards, leftist social engineering, political promotions, corruption in the defense industry, and the general decay of America's body and soul, the military is pretty much just a glorified jobs program at this point. Combat readiness has gone to complete shit. We literally just lost the "war" in Afghanistan a few weeks ago.

Another ten years of diversity hires & grrrl power & purging "white supremists" (i.e., anyone who can actually fight) from the ranks, and it'll pretty much be the DMV in camo. The military won't even have the personnel qualified to operate its own equipment or carry out its own tactics.

Where do they think they're going to get Navy Seals and nuclear reactor operators and ship captains and pilots who can land planes on aircraft carriers? Draft more people from the talent pool of morbidly obese, weed-addicted blue-haired tranny America?

I had a video once of the C130's flight test of the first 40k payload airdrop. 40K coming out the back of a 100K aircraft is something. You have to understand the aircraft is massively statically unbalanced at that point for any airdrop. Luckily just a few seconds before it's off the back teeter rollers and away. Requirements on the initial deployment chutes is whatever is sufficient to accelerate the pallet out at 1G. no . f'ing. matter . what . happens

Also, I have the airforce/lockheed slideshow of them packing up the P-3 China forced down onto a big An. Had to cut the wings off for that too. I watched the An land with the P-3 inside at dobbins in Marietta. Big aircraft like that looks like it's hovering when it's close to land.
