Almost Two Years and Counting….

The last thing most people want to read more about is the incessant coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic, and yet, the hysteria is still in full swing! After promises of getting back to the old normal instead of this “new normal” once the vaccines rolled out, the goal posts have been moved once again! Now, we all are pushed to get Covid booster shots just a few months after getting the full round of the original vaccines. Talk of different mutated strains such as the Delta variant are keeping the fear going for many, and it won’t be too long before stricter mask mandates and restrictions go into effect once more if the Left gets their way! Think of it too, winter is the perfect excuse as that is naturally cold and flu season where other bugs go around so it can easily be used to inflate the numbers and keep the “what if” in people’s minds when they get a cold.

No photo description available.

To the woke however, they argue it’s because of conservatives who are skeptical about the push for Covid restrictions and more vaccines this has gone on for so long. They say we are blind to the science and only wish to cut off our nose to spite our face to “own the libs”. However, if they truly want to help everyone do their part to get out of this pandemic, they need to stop pushing contradictory agendas, double standards and actually have more honesty and transparency across the board.

I’ve covered this in a few previous posts, but there are many reasons for conservatives to feel skeptical about much of what is advised in regards to Covid-19. They said we needed to lock down businesses, restaurants, public venues, and about everything imaginable to “flatten the curve”. Initially, many people did comply in the hopes that a short term shut down would pay off big time long term. However, the moment these shut downs came into effect, there were clear double standards: big businesses could stay afloat while family owned businesses suffered immensely. Places of worship, AA meetings, schools, etc… were forced to close, while the liquor store and abortion clinics were allowed to remain open as “essential businesses”. Let’s not forget also, when in the middle of summer 2020 Covid was all but forgotten as thousands flocked to the streets to loot and riot! We all had to move on Zoom for events yet the elites got to have fun in person, such as Obama’s big B-day bash! Think of it: children were forced to learn from home and blue collar workers who couldn’t do work from home suffered while the elites got to bend and break every shut down rule and come out even richer!

They said we all need to wear cloth or paper mask to stop the spread of a virus that escaped one of the top bio-labs in the world. That the science said it would prevent you from spreading the virus to others, and yet, studies have shown that the usual mask everyone wears is negligible in stopping it at all. Not only that, they moved the goal posts again and again saying you should wear not one, but two masks for it to really work! So, how effective is this mask if you need more than one?

Ben Garrison Cartoons GrrrGraphics.com on Twitter: "New Ben Garrison  Cartoon #Fauci's Function Funding- Fauci tries to cover his tracks! Don't  Just #FireFauci #LockHimUp #WuhanLab read the eye popping post at  https://t.co/thh27KeuV3… https://t.co ...

Not to mention, the usual double standards apply to who must wear it. Politicians and even health officials can get together in the middle of a shutdown to go out to eat to celebrate a birthday party at the fanciest restaurant in town without masks. The leftist elites at the Met Gala can go without a mask while the mere peons working the event had to mask up. School boards don’t have to mask up yet school children who are at the least risk of getting or spreading the virus do. For those who must follow the arbitrary rules regarding masks, the rules aren’t even enforced in a way that would logically stop the spread of disease! For example, a rule in one school is that those who play instruments such as flutes, horns, and tubas for instance must be masked but cut a slit to be able to blow through the instrument! What’s the point of a mask if you’re blowing air (and your infected droplets) through an instrument blasting it into the room forcefully? Didn’t they say singing supposedly was worse for those reasons? Hmm…

As for vaccines, still a huge hot topic even as mask mandates and shut downs have eased up a bit, the goal posts have been moved so many times it’s hard to keep track of! Full disclosure: I chose to get both rounds of the vaccine. I had no adverse effects and it has been like any other vaccine I have gotten. I’m not necessarily concerned about getting adverse effects from a booster, but it’s not high on my priority list to jump on. Why? I just got my two shots only a few months back, and the push to keep getting boosters is suspicious this early on. Yes, many vaccines need boosters every now and then, but usually it’s a matter of a year or a few years for many, and we know there’s much for the Left and companies like Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Pfizer to be gained by hyping up the fear and urging more vaccines! I personally don’t want to be lead around by manipulation and fear, and neither do even stronger skeptics than I. Many of these so called “anti-science conspiracy theorists” have no issue getting other vaccines.

Some are, but the majority of conservatives have gotten other vaccines for many other diseases. The reason why this one has been distrusted is not a lack of reason, but the Left’s lack of transparency and honesty as well as blatant hypocrisy in this and other Covid related matters. Why should we trust you when you’ve lied to and manipulated us before? Yes, viruses mutate but this Delta variant for example that they love to hype up now is indeed more contagious, but significantly less deadly. For those who are in good health and are not immunocompromised or elderly, the vaccine will lessen the strength of the virus if you do get it, however natural immunity gained from a mild case is far stronger. It may be the hard reality is we all need a brush with Covid-19 to gain true herd immunity. A final point on vaccine skepticism is we were told we’d get back to normal after the vaccines rolled out, and yet, here we are stuck in the Left’s panic driven “normal”…

What is this ongoing “normal” since “the adults are back in charge”? Higher prices on food, and other merchandise due to arbitrary Covid related rules around shipping driving up shipping expenses. Higher gas prices too. Covid relief funds that are now just handouts incentivizing people to stay home and not work as they’re making more by staying home than working so now we have an employment crisis.

Shaun on Twitter: "big fan of this garrison cartoon titled 'why you should  ditch the masks' in which masks simultaneously deprive people of oxygen,  allow covid-19 to pass through freely, and 'collect

More inflation due to all of this as now it takes more to buy stuff and employ people. An economic crash. A shortage of affordable middle class homes. A few dollars extra on merchandise, food and gas may not put as big a dent in upper middle class/white collar wallets, just as the pandemic didn’t stop them from working as they moved to Zoom, but it hurts the blue collar workers perhaps not so coincidentally who are more likely to vote conservative. Yet, the welfare state, illegal immigration, “refugees” from terror plagued nations, sanctuary cities and such are booming! The elites aren’t affected in their walled off gated homes and communities, the illegals and welfare recipients get their handouts; it’s the middle class and blue collar workers who foot the bill! We have to wear the masks, we have to give up in person events, we have to keep our kids home from school, we have to pay more for goods due to arbitrary Covid red tape, while the Leftist elites get to live the high life with no consequences of their policies they enforce on the “little people” and the welfare and illegal voting base gets their incentives to keep voting Left.

It’s clear to see if one would only open their eyes and look, why many conservatives are DONE with this Covid-19 nonsense! You want us to go along with all your rules, mandates and restrictions? Show us real scientific evidence and stop making rules that ignore the science, such as the true effectiveness of masks, shut downs and contagion patterns. Stop the blatant double standards and hypocrisy in having two sets of rules: one for the privileged few and one for the rest of us. Give us more transparency into the true incentives for pushing so hard for booster after booster shot of vaccines and declare conflicts of interest. Tell us the risks as well as benefits of getting your vaccines. You want responses to this pandemic to not be divided along political lines in a never ending culture war? Why not simply care about everyone’s health rather than use Covid-19 to push every woke agenda in the book? Don’t lead us on, manipulate us and lead through fear, but rather honesty and transparency. If the virus is truly such a great risk, why do you need to push so hard for us to see that? Two years is enough: More have opened their eyes and will vote accordingly the next time around 😉

  3. Terry McAuliff must be pretty dammed stupid if he believes that his is a winning strategy. Only NAZIS believe that parents shouldn’t have a say in what their Children are being taught. McAuliff must believe that children are the property of the State.

    There are Virginia Yard Signs: that say ‘Keep Parents Out Of Classrooms — Vote For McAuliffe
    Just this last Monday, it was reported that yard signs are popping up across Virginia that read, “Keep Parents out of Classrooms,” Followed By, “Vote Mcauliffe” and “Keep Virginia Blue.”

    According to “The Hill”, the signs are being put up by supporters of Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who single-handedly changed the course of the gubernatorial campaign by saying: “ Parents should NOT be allowed to tell schools what to teach”.
    Talk about Stupidity!
    McAuliffe actually said during the debate with his opponent, Glenn Youngkin. “I DON’T THINK PARENTS SHOULD BE TELLING SCHOOLS WHAT THEY SHOULD TEACH.”

  4. Isn’t it EXTREMELY interesting that Kamala Harris and Selile Old Joe Biden had plenty of time to go to VIRGINIA and campaign for Terry McAuliffe, but seem to never have Time to Go to the Border and See the Crisis That THEY Have Created. The very same boarder that BiDumb just said that he was SO busy because of the recent Hurricanes?
    Mr Biden, we can see right theough your cheap LIES the minute after they pass through your lips.
    The Left constantly tells us “No One Is above the Law.” But a minute later they LIE like a rug.

    And they don’t apply it to millions of illegal invaders they let cross the border, they don’t follow their own mandates, and they don’t follow the laws on the books themselves.

    When they get caught, they normally give a weak excuse and blame it on some recent personal event that they had committed to, like the “RECENT HURRICANE” . LMAO.

    Kamala sent a recorded message to over 300 BLACK churches throughout Virginia saying “This is the first year that you can vote on Sunday. So please vote after today’s service.”
    The recorded video message endorsing Terry McAuliffe that will play in over 300 black churches throughout Virginia before Election Day. . And By The Way! Churches are NOT ALLOWED to engage in ANY endorsements of Political candidates or they risk losing Their Tax Exempt status. What was that about “No One Being Above The Law”.
    A Typical move of the American Left is ” LAWS ARE FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME”
    Where was the separation of church and state there?

    So even Mr. Obama came out of the Wood-Work stumping for Terry McAuliffe and couldn’t help but comment…Stirring up the public like he has since he completely got the Professor Henry Gates burglary situation wrong (remember the Beer Summit!?) and really provoked race issues that had finally got so much better. Remember he somehow got news of cops mistreating Prof Gates before Prof Gates said “No, they were wonderful! I just couldn’t get my KEY to work!” ?? and blew it into a huge race deal? Yes, despite all the parents in Loudoun County and other counties across the country, Mr. Obama thinks CRT is just a ‘fake culture war’ …CRT isn’t being taught, right? Most Americans know that’s, sadly, not true
    By the way, where was Mr. Obama last summer when the Socialist Democrats were running all over the Streets of the Cities Rioting, murdering, and Looting , the stores that were still open and left the people scrambling for food they were left because the groceries, and Supermarkets were burned down and looted?
    Real Americans were shocked and disheartened by the lack outspoken Mayors, Governors, and other Politicians. Instead they were given support to the looters, arsonists, and thugs fron the Democrats, and the High, and Mighty Progressive Party. The Black Lives Matters Hoodlums where praised and treated like Saviors. Instead of the Thugs that they really are,

    I don’t seem to remember any complaints about violating our religious principles, when Barack Hussein Obama went to Georgetown University and had the symbol of Jesus covered up because the excuse was, “Well he didn’t want any background distracting from Mr. Obama’s message,’”
    REALLY? They DIDN’T want any background distracting from his message, but he had absolutely no problem speaking with a background plastered with Planned Parenthood signs, The clergyman would later refer to Obama’s blessing a “blasphemy”
    As they say….. Leftism destroys everything it touches.

    No, Mr. Obama, YOU can vote for Terry McAuliffe if YOU want to, but it’s not a “phony, TRUMPed up” lie as you said…. This cause is too important for you to Stand there an LIE to our Faces just to get someone in your party elected !

  5. Do you remember the Old, and the REAL America …when riots were unthinkable, and we only saw them in the news reels of other Countries, but NEVER here in America….. When you left front doors open. When socialism was a dirty word. When ghettos were neighborhoods. When the Flag was a sacred symbol. When criminals actually went to jail. When you weren’t afraid to go out at night. When taxes were only a necessary nuisance. When a boy was a boy, and dressed like one. When a girl was a girl, and dressed like one. When the poor were too proud to take charity. When the clergy actually talked about religion. When clerks and repairmen tried to please you. When college kids swallowed goldfish, not acid. When songs had a tune, and the words made sense. When young fellows tried to join the Army or Navy. When people knew what the Fourth of July stood for. When you never dreamed our country could ever lose. When a Sunday drive was a pleasant trip, not an ordeal. When you bragged about your hometown and home state. When everybody didn’t feel entitled to a college education. When people expected less and valued what they had more. When politicians proclaimed their patriotism, and meant it. When everybody knew the difference between right and wrong. When things weren’t perfect — but you never expected them to be. When you weren’t made to feel guilty for enjoying dialect comedy. When our Government stood up for Americans, anywhere in the world. When you knew that the law would be enforced, and your safety protected. When you considered yourself lucky to have a good job, and proud to have it. When the law meant justice, and you felt a shiver of awe at sight of a policeman. When you weren’t embarrassed to say that this is the best country in the world. When America was a land filled with brave, proud, confident, hardworking people!

  6. The Lady of Reason has pointed out the essential issue with the covid policies. Those imposing them have squandered their credibility by their contradictory statements and actions. Their use of the virus as a pretense to alter election rules only added to questions about the honesty and motives of those politicians and bureaucrats. There’s an old saying that trust is a lot easier to maintain than it is to repair and Dr. Fauci et al are adding to that distrust rather than trying to repair the damage. Instead of trying to restore confidence, they attempt to force compliance with threats of job loss and other restrictions..

    Their allies at Facebook, Twitter etc only add to that skepticism when they censor dissenting voices under the guise of “restricting misinformation.” Essentially, in a modern version of Lysenkoism, tech company gender studies majors are judging which epidemiologists and virologists have gotten the science right. People are likely to work with the government when they feel that it’s leveling with them but they have no desire to be governed by deep state zampolits.

    The exhortations to “believe in the science” are themselves unscientific. As Richard Feynman put it, science is the belief in the fallibility of experts. One does not “believe” in science because science is a process of questioning beliefs. If the covid policies are warranted by science, Dr. Fauci and company should have no resistance to discussing the scientific studies that support their conclusions as well as any data that appears to contradict them. When Fauci ducks those questions from Rand Paul and others, it only fuels skepticism.

    The difference between science and religion is that science is based on open debate and the willingness to abandon opinions upon the discovery of better information. With religion, one maintains one’s beliefs as a matter of immutable principle.
    Those who refuse to permit questions about the scientific basis for current covid policies should ask themselves whether they are practicing science or simply adhering to a quasi religious belief in the authority of the deep state.

  7. Trump maybe a lot of things but you can bet your last dollar that he is NOT a socialist, Communist, Muslim loving traitor who follows Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals . I’ll leave that to Hillary and the other Progressive Socialist Democrats like our Senile Delusional Illegal Tough Guy President, who is so eager to “Take you Behind the Barn and Beat the Crap out of you” .He’s more likely to sit on the edge of the swimming Pool and let the Kids play with the Hair on His Legs.
    As for Hillary Clinton! I would NOT trust Hillary Clinton to govern our nation any more than I’d trust Barack Obama, or even that Dumb Ass Joseph Biden
    But right now, I’m for Donald Trump. Yes, he may have a temper problem, but I know that he Loves this country, and only wants whats good for it. .
    Now you can Carry On with your rants about Free Lunches, Free Breakfasts, and turning this country into the Land of “Entitlements” Slavery, The Culture War, Racism, and more of Michelle Obama’s ridiculous bullshit, like her excuse’s for people being be Jobless!
    As if the Socialist Teachers weren’t Obnoxious enough with their contentious exchanges between officials and parents who oppose controversial policies like mask mandates, or teaching critical race theory and more.
    In some cases, parents have been kicked out of meetings for refusing to wear masks, leading to allegations that school boards were trying to silence dissent. In one specific instance, an entire school board was forced to resign after hot mic comments showed board members mocking concerned parents. ”

    The socialists are going for total control of the school systems, from grade school thru high school, since they already control the college level.

    I would never have thought that I would see the FBI trying to intimidate parents from free speech here in the USA. Now Biden’s DOJ has issued a memo to the FBI to Kick out any Moms, or Dads that push back to protect their kids from being indoctrinated to the socialist agenda of these Marxist teachers.
    .This is the goal of Biden’s totalitarian state.

    If we do not STOP this bullshit from the liberals, we will soon have NO freedoms whatsoever. No constitution, no Free Speech, No Freedom of Religion, No Rights, and No Choice.
    Parents can’t express themselves at SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS because the Marxists do not want their indoctrination to be messed with.

  8. I believe people should just do what they want. That includes businesses requiring their own rules. No one’s forcing anyone to do anything. People are not restricted to one place if they are not happy with it and I am the first to say, “if you’re not happy with America, LEAVE.” And I believe that applies to your city, town, grocery, work etc. if you are not happy with their mandates. I live in in Texas. The ICU’s in the medical center are again saturated. At the very least, I only wish people would take full responsibility for their choices. If your SpO2 starts to drop or you start having shortness of breath AND you refused the vaccine, were anti-restrictions, refused masks, and continued on as if nothing has changed, then by all means, just stay home and continue to do just that. Don’t show up to the hospital and take up a slot in the ER triage or a hospital bed someone else needs and deserves more. I’ve already had my share and my patience has worn thin with the non-vaccinated patients I’ve had in the ICU taking up a bed that needs to be used by someone else. You made your bed so please lie in it at home instead of coming to the hospital.

    • Even vaccinated people have succumbed to the effects of Covid. You’re literally arguing that unless you get vaccinated you deserve to die of Covid and your life’s not worth saving. WOW. Such an extreme attitude is what pushes many away from getting vaccinated and only breeds resentment and more distrust. Do you apply the same reasoning to any other disease? If I don’t get a flu shot this year and get the flu I’m not worth saving? If I refuse an HPV vaccine I might as well die of cancer? etc… To extend this further, are those who acquire diabetes later in life less deserving of insulin than those born with diabetes? The Left loves to think of addiction as a disease yet one’s direct choices put them in that condition as well as hurt everyone around them. Are they less deserving of drugs like Narcan to give them a second chance? Point is, people make all sorts of “ill-advised” health choices and there are consequences, yet we treat them to the best of our medical ability. Last I checked the Hippocratic oath didn’t have an addendum that says *only applies to healing people who make the same choices as you would…

      And yes, I’m vaccinated 😉 I just think the next guy who isn’t deserves the same devotion to saving their life as much as mine.

  9. And now emergency approval is being sought for an anti-Covid pill, and they want everyone to be taking these pills, every day. For something with a better than 95% survival rate, even for those that are high risk.

    As for vaccines, people seeking medical exemptions are being told that if they might have an allergic reaction to the vaccine, but can still be saved from death with medical treatment, they cannot get a medical exemption. So… if they will die from a vaccine, they are exempt, but if they might only almost die, they aren’t?

    It’s ridiculous. A neighbor of mine broke his neck in an accident, and because he wasn’t vaxxed with this particular vaccine, the hospital wouldn’t do the surgery he needed unless he got a PCR test, which our province runs at 40, sometimes 45, cycles (which has an almost 100% false positivity rate). He refused the PCR test, but said he would be willing to do a saliva test. They refused. It was more than a week of him in traction before they finally did the surgery and he’s now home and recovering, but not before he basically told them that they could wheel him out into the parking lot if they wanted, but he was not getting the PCR test.

    Our province just went back into “code orange”. Exactly as I predicted, they did it just in time for our Thanksgiving. The new regulations include things like limiting how many people you can have in your own home, if even one person who “qualifies” for a vaccine is present – even if that person lives in that home. There are similar restrictions for outdoor events, weddings and funerals, all based on whether or not an where just a single unvaccinated person might be there. I believe every Canadian province now requires vaccine passports, and businesses are being ordered to enforce vaccine mandates, despite the fact that it is illegal to mandate vaccines of any kind in Canada. And they’re already offering booster shots to some groups. Meanwhile, our “conservative” premier (Canada’s equivalent to a governor in the US) resigned and has basically dropped off the radar, probably off to his second home in Costa Rica, but there is no change with the new guy. If anything, things have gotten worse.

    Oh, and our ICUs are being overwhelmed again – at least according to the official announcements. One province’s health services already got caught lying about how many were in ICU in general, never mind with Covid, and this after the province cut the number of ICU beds almost in half, rather than increasing them as they said they would. The narrative is that it’s all the unvaxxed that are in ICU, until you read the fine print and it’s closer to half and half – and they don’t actually say if they are in ICU because of Covid, or if they are in ICU and happen to also test positive for Covid.

    Heck, even our military got outed as using the pandemic status to test their propaganda machine on Canadians for behavioural modification. They only stopped when some media found out about and started asking questions. They claim the government didn’t know about it, and that they never needed government authorization to do it, but such activities are only allowed against an enemy, not against our own citizens.

    The non stop deception, goal post moving, outright lies, manipulation and more, is incredible.
