More bad science but at least it’s good news. Now, how do you know and what’s the difference anyway?

CDC says you can go maskless outdoors in small groups even if you don’t know the other people around you. But only if you are fully vaccinated. Because fully vaccinated people won’t get as sick as fully unvaccinated people and that’s all we know for sure. The method of treatment or isolation is the same when you come down with signs and symptoms of Covid or none at all...just a positive test.

So how are you to tell...do these fully vaccinated people wear a scarlet letter? Produce some paper bought at the local Five & Dime or, do you just believe them ‘cause they say so?

So many questions not enough time.

So afraid of being wrong for so long now that the bureaucrats in Washington can only throw out chum in the water so poisonous and toxic from their own anti-scientific followings for over a year of being wrong on nearly everything associated with SARS-CoV-2. At least deaf people will understand a little more what’s going on around them - when outside.

Went to a Paneras Bakery this morning in the Socialist Republic of Johnson County Iowa. Was shocked to see that the "Masks Required" signs were gone. Governor Reynolds had lifted the mask mandate quite some time ago but there exists some Iowa law that allows for local governments to enact their own special rules. Johnson County leaders like to think of themselves as Little Madison (Wisconsin). Governor Reynolds has also turned down millions in special covid funding from the feds and as of June first will be ending the bonus unemployment payments. There is some sanity out there.

Today is a magnanimous day for all Americans…the Biden administration has declared by “God” the virus controls and mandatory enforcement of regulatory unethical practices and unenforceable laws to be scrapped by order of the head scientist in charge (HMFSIC) so in order to stop the rapid decline in stock market trading.

Caveat- But only if you “say” you have been fully vaccinated against the non-Chinese “Wuhan” Coronavirus.

Gotta ditch that pre-emption krap. That stuff'll get a feller kilt.

So - now that it isn't good for CDC to equate death with the COVID vaccine, people can once again die from a heart attack or some other non-COVID cause.

Unlike the past year when they have overtly counted pretty much any death of a person with a positive COVID as 'COVID related' to run the numbers up.


Ht by a truck?
Uhm... yes but they were COVID-19 positive

98 years old with seven different terminal diseases?
...yes, but they had COVID

Fell off a ladder...
...had COVID



credibility - its just a made up word in the dictionary between crazy and crooked

In the paper today was an article that went into great detail about the risk of people lying about whether they were vaccinated in order to avoid having to wear a mask. Imagine LYING in order to support your own narrative...where would anyone get an idea like that?

You mean like Saint Fauci saying there was no threat
...there was a threat
...masks weren't necessary
...two weeks to flatten the curve
...masks are critical
...his associates dont support gain of function research'
...yes I'll speak at your function where they do gain of function research

Or the all time favorites from people like Clinton and Emmanuel:
...you need both a public and a private position on issues
...NEVER let a good crisis go to waste


It isn't "lying" when politicians do it - its just the strategic employment of selective pragmatism.

I take Sir Fauci at his word -- and you should too....

-- I believe that COVID is not only real, but it's one thousand million billion times worse than given credit for....

-- I wear seven masks at the same time because "more is better"....

-- I have had 12 vaccinations and am scheduled for three more because "more is better"...and I want all of them....

Long live Sir Fauci....

I stopped by Walmart this morning on my way into the office. I would say it was a 50/50 split. That's including the workers.

Central FL is about the same in grocery stores now.

This weekend my wife and I were re-reading an excellent write up on the whole situation. I believe it was called "The Stanford Prison Experiment".

"Texas reported zero deaths from COVID-19 on Sunday, just two months after Gov. Greg Abbott drew heat from the White House for rolling back business restrictions and lifting the state's mask mandate."

Isn't it wonderful that when you can actually count a death as is and not count it as COVID related...the count goes to ZERO COVID related...hmmm, funny how that works...

We no longer have to wear a mask at my work, and I can now go in 5 days a week. But the County Executive is recommending telework a few days a week to save on electricity and gasoline. Lol, I need to get back into the groove. I've only been going in 2-3 days a week since this started.

I'll see how the grocery store is today when I go, they lifted the restrictions on Friday.
