If you're supposed to be in quarantine because you've had close contact with someone who tested positive then yes, you should get slapped if you ignore it.


Holy cow you are a little fascist prick.

Would close contact mean within 6'? So maybe on a sunny day with a breeze if we're within 2-3' of someone who had tested positive 2 months ago they should be slapped? Why not just punch them? Oh hell, let's just go back to dragging their ass through the streets. That was a popular thing on here a few months back.

So there is a debate on RI about wearing masks? Nobody sees any cult symbolism about the masquerade? Give up your identity? The muzzle? OBEY?

Two days ago I was outside doing yard work on a rather lovely evening when some of my neighbors spontaneously came ambling over. Was a very lovely conversation that we all had in VERY close proximity to each other. One of them is a doctor at a local clinic, the other is the lab director at our local hospital. We've all kept rather to ourselves for several weeks and there was much catchup to do. I jokingly asked the two white coat medical professionals why they weren't wearing their masks. Both of them laughed and then proceeded to tell me what a joke it is that people think we should be wearing masks in the outdoors. They also think social distancing is rather stupid outdoors as well.

We all hung out for a good hour or so playing the the dogs, chatting and walking about in close proximity. My lab director friend even came in for a big hug. I burst out laughing and dodged her saying "oh hell no you work at the hospital with all those bugs and we can't hug until the contact tracing squad approves it." As the convo proceeded we discussed more about the lies, bad data and fallacy about homemade masks. I asked them why they won't speak publicly and they both looked down at the ground and got uncomfortable. One said she's fearful of what the administration would do if they found out. I suspect many medical professionals would agree.

I will not wear a mask unless it's super important I have to be in a place that requires it. I will never ever allow myself to be vaccinated for this shit unless they are holding a gun to my head. Gates, Fauci and all those assholes can shove any vaccine up their ass.

By the way, did anybody catch this?

Then there is this. DOD and HHS awarded Apiject with a $138 million contract to manufacture syringes for when the "miracle" vaccine appears. How exciting! Maybe people will even get to have the vaccine every year like that good 'ol trusty flu vaccine. Wonder how much mercury or peanut oil will be in these doses?

Scroll to the bottom where the PDF is and it describes the cute tidbit about how RFID tech is used to track the vaccinations. It made me so warm and fuzzy to think that science professor Bill Gates is looking out for me. :yay Those of you who had to use Windows for years must feel super safe by now, or just used to viruses. :P

Most of us are just laughing at a country that is broken and a pack of idiots who were prepared to do what a billionaire conman asked them to do on the basis of what? Helping him cos he was in Home Alone? talk about acting against your own interests.

I wouldn't think my response represents the state of this joint tho.

There are people on here who think BLM is a scam cooked up by Soros to destroy the west and this MAGA shit is great. They think everything is faked and controlled and run by people. Except when its something like Trump, then its authentic. People are incompetent morons most of the time. This was a classic example. People were calling for this for weeks. Go to GLP or somewhere similar and there were people breathlessly talking about how cool it would be to take back America, people who have posted there for a decade. They were talking about their plans and taking back their country.

cos Trump is a lazy shithead who doesn't do things properly, is impulsive and has spent his life and his presidency getting other people to do the work he didn't organise a proper coup. It was half arsed ego tripping rubbish that appealed to his vanity. The same people who saw this as a chance to take their country back will be right behind someone who does the job properly sometime in the next decade. And watch the businessmen and corporate scum fall in line behind that.

I've dealt racist cunts in RL for fifty years and not being white I don't slip under their radar. When they start saying things like "This is our country and we're taking it back" they mean from people like me, not the rich bastards who manipulate them. And even tho they are talking about a different country ... they sound exactly the same ('cept for accents).

If I was an American and believed in my country (not the state or the fed or whatever but the place and its people) I'd be furious, cos the only thing that holds it together is the myth around their constitution ... and the guy who took an oath to protect that constitution just tried to break it. I'm not an American and I don't believe in their country but i can recognise power grabs and there are plenty happening here. None are being made by "the woke" or the left.


(And the follow-up.)

This is not over. Nothing is predetermined. Not everything is planned and not every plan is going to go as planned. The struggle has only begun. All the radical breakneck insanity and apparent defeated alienation we've seen is not irreversible and can proceed at an even faster pace toward better outcomes than we may expect as mere logical-empirical oddsmakers. There will be openings and people willing to fight and to work to exploit them for the good. Many other worlds are possible. The world belongs to no one, and never will.

I also know that 'Covid' is a final and decisive chapter in that story. I know it is not an accidental hell paved with benign intentions. I know it is pre-meditated and engineered. I know it is a purposefully created crisis, enacted by a relative few. It took a while for me to arrive at this point, but I'm definitely here. What I don't know is how to counter it effectively, beyond a mass movement against all of it, involving almost everybody. In that sense it represents a last great oportunity to bring the whole charade down to the ground and embark on an entirely different journey in an entirely different direction, all of us together.

The odds are against us.

The fact is that none of the currently 90+ percent boys on this forum condemning Covid vaccine mandates (as they SHOULD, by the way, no false binaries here) would, if they were female but otherwise basically the same fellows, see this as anything other than far worse, especially if they were of child-bearing age. Forced breeding is the most egregious conceivable violation this side of chattel slavery, the Guantanamo treatment, or straight-up murder. In addition, the revocation of rights is to be perpetrated on the majority of humans within these jurisdictions, but somehow this is supposed to be some kind of specialized interest

The two presidencies may clearly be seen now as the bookends of a frightful moment in American history, with a worldview consolidated in the opinions of the Roberts court.

Bodily autonomy, to my ears, sounds like an abstraction made for the sake of argument. It’s not a position I’d choose to assume. Frankly, of all things, it reminds me of Mike Tyson’s notorious quip about the stunning immediacy of violence— everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face. The court’s recent decision feels, to me, exactly like that. Strategy, tactics, debate, years of vigilance, protest, and action have all been for naught.

There are a dozen ways this outcome could have been prevented, and while it was not, I still don’t believe any of this to have been "political" in any typical way. Symbolic, yes, and social, certainly, but in concrete terms, one can map the reactionary sea-change the nation underwent by following that which Roe brought in its wake. In 2022, this change, now become law, represents nothing less than the destruction of two hundred-plus years of human endeavor.

I understand modernity as reaching back to the fifteenth century. An outline of liberty was expressed in the eighteenth. In my lifetime, the ruthless dismantling of these ideals began in earnest following Roe, and now it’s finally and unequivocally complete. Finished. All which likely follows will be a mere reiteration of this awareness, or of these facts, which, as noted, had been coming for years.

I watched “The Baader Meinhof Complex” again last night— I mean, why not, it was late, and I live in the countryside now— and Gudrun Ensslin’s pragmatic expression of despair, “Hope is for theologians”, hit very hard. The film proceeded to then show her and her comrades dead in their cells.

This is where all will eventually lead. Our prison has just gotten alot bigger, and there are myriad ways for us to be killed in it, or to choose to kill ourselves in defiance of lockdown.

Bodily autonomy, indeed. The pursuit of happiness? A life without liberty isn't one worth living. It's arguably not life at all. The left in America makes a thousand mistakes every day, but framing the debates which Roe created around the question of "life", with religious fanaticism subsequently dragged into it, has been the most grievous political error possibly ever made in the history of humankind.
