    Yuh!

    The other is a book about how politicians, the media and the legal profession desire to keep everyone in a constant state of panic. It's basically about eco-terrorism but makes good points about how reliant we've become on what we are told by those in authority at the expense of truth.

    There are loads of photos of the government officials wearing their masks that way. I especially like the ones of the governors of some of the states that still have the strictest lockdowns doing it. Those idiots are in charge of telling everyone else what sort of precautions are necessary

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I talked with a man yesterday on the phone who is absolutely TERRIFIED of getting Covid. His family says this is new - he never had this kind of fear before.
    He's older - 68-70, but in great health, and I believe him to be a Christian.
    He won't go outside, makes his wife take a shower when she comes home and put her clothes in the laundry, and is CONSTANTLY doing the hand sanitizer and mask thing.

    My attorney told me that his secretary is like that. Deathly afraid that she can catch it just by looking at someone across a room. Her skin has likely absorbed more alcohol than her stomach ever will.

    And speaking of my attorney he told me that some of his clients who are "escorts" (hookers) are now going on zoom and charging $350/hr for virtual sex.

    Yup. You read that right. $350/hr. And they aren't even in the same building and maybe not even the same state.

    Or the person who "invented" a mask with a hole in the front so that people could visit a bar and still be able to sip their drinks. At that point, you may as well not even bother wearing a mask at all.

    It's kind of like snipping the end off a condom and still expecting it to work.

    Folks with underlining health problems, i.e. overweight, who spend a lot of exertion just to move around might struggle to breath in one. I'm a very healthy dude, but I know I couldn't possibly exercise wearing one because it would greatly restrict my breathing.

    Although this could work in our favor. If we point out just how many people are using masks and rubber gloves in ways that offer no benefit whatsoever, and yet they're not getting sick, then maybe we can convince folks to ditch the practice and return to some semblance of normalcy.

    I'm in pretty good health but find it difficult to breath while wearing a mask when I exert myself.

    New England Journal of Medicine busts the mask myth, saying that you are very unlikely to catch the China flu simply by being briefly in the vicinity of someone, such as walking by them in a grocery store, that it needs to be a prolonged face to face encounter with a symptomatic person.

    https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2006372

    Another study says that asymptomatic carriers pose little risk.
