Coronavirus Pandemic

I've seen the same thing with local businesses. Some are welcoming and do a great job to make people welcome. Others are like what you described.

One shop I used to be a customer of wants everyone to buy a ticket for a 20 minute time slot to shop in her store. She lets everyone know on her website that shopping in person, as opposed to online shopping (which she would prefer people do), is a PRIVILEGE. The price of the time slot will be deducted from the cost of goods if you make a purchase, but it is not refundable. She doesn't want people just showing up at her store and looking at stuff.

I had no difficulty finding another local shop, selling the same sort of merchandise, that is welcoming customers back to their store. They do a great online business too, so the shops are very similar. They have hand sanitizer at the door and things are spaced farther apart now and everything is done safely. They do curbside pickup for people uncomfortable going into shops. But they are happy to have customers come in to shop.

Quite honestly, I don't go shopping without a plan to purchase something now. And if the first shop owner had sold time slots to raise money for our local food bank, I'd have been fine with it and it probably would have brought in paying customers to her shop without being so off-putting. I won't shop there again.

I have been trying to support local businesses, because I want those services to remain available. But I won't support the ones that act like bullies.
You're joking, right?

What kind of nonsense is that? A privilege?! That sounds exactly like the type of dynamic I experienced and felt. As if the social contract between a private entity such as a business and a member of the public has morphed into this beast whereby the moment you step outside your house, you WILL do as you are told; no exceptions!

Yeah, that was what she was telling critiques of the policy on facebook too. People were complaining that they couldn't buy a timeslot and bring a friend with to shop. That wasn't allowed. And you had 20 minutes to shop and then you had to buy something or leave.
 
Here's the thing David: If you lived here, had kids or grandkids in middle/high school athletics, had gone through the spring where all sports were canceled, went through the summer where government, health, and school officials worked super hard on behalf of the kids Fall sports seasons, negotiated through the headwinds of certain groups that didn't want to all Fall sports under any circumstance, and won the battle with the small cost of complying with a really easy rule set.... you might think differently.
I'd be bloody angry, because outdoor activities must be less considerably less risky than indoor ones. Ideally though the government should be offering help to the vulnerable, and letting the rest of society run free. The virus will burn out that way, just as it did in Sweden. All these lockdowns do is slow down that process.
You're looking at it from your lens only. That's fine, but this is the bottom line: If you lived here you'd find that 99% of parents/grandparents are ecstatic about following the rules as it protects their kids not even so much from the virus itself but the public pressure to cancel the season should any perception of recklessness be detected.
They might be even more ecstatic if the rules were abandoned and instead people were given advice about their personal protection.
Again, this woman knew the rules and didn't follow them. That was the first wrong action in this thread yet you (and obviously not K9 who seems utterly disconnected from any common sense) haven't seemed to find any fault with her.
I dare say most of the rules in Nazi Germany would have been better not obeyed. Yes, that is an extreme comparison, but these lockdowns could easily lead to far worse. I already see that in parts of Africa lockdowns are leading to famine. Imagine ploughing a field of corn for your family, and then you are locked down while it rots.
She should not have been tased. No one is challenging that.
Well you seemed to be getting awfully close when you explained that she was considered extremely difficult because she used marijuana and had been disorderly in the past!

This is why they are pushing the danger of covid-19: to justify mail-in ballots which makes massive voter fraud possible.

"With the help of mass mail-in ballots, the illegal ballot harvesting operation could harvest 700,000 ballots, one Harris County Democrat operative allegedly bragged."

Biden’s Texas Political Director Implicated in Massive Mail-In Ballot Harvesting Scheme in Harris County
By Debra Heine • September 28, 2020​
A Biden Campaign operative in Texas is attempting to rig the 2020 election with the help of others in a massive ballot harvesting scheme, according to two private investigators who testified under oath that they have “video evidence, documentation and witnesses” to prove it. With the help of mass mail-in ballots, the illegal ballot harvesting operation could harvest 700,000 ballots, one Harris County Democrat operative allegedly bragged.
700,000 votes is a lot of votes. Trump won Texas by 800,000 in 2016. It they are doing this in other states where the margin is closer they could steal the election.

I guess not.

If you did, and you had asthma, and you knew the rules for attendance were crystal clear, and that school/public officials had indicated there would be monitoring of the rules, would you have done as this woman did and simply show up without a mask?

Or, perhaps, you would have spoken with your school officials, explained that you had a condition that precluded mask wearing, you'd have gotten the appropriate pre approval and documentation simply to not put your kid's/grandkid's sports season at risk. You'd have acted responsibly I'd wager.

This woman could have avoided this entire situation, as thousands of parents and grandparents have been doing across the state of Ohio for over a month now.
 
I'm going to invent a new wild conspiracy theory. Are you ready?

"Corona" Virus is a cover for the increased incidence in radiation caused by the increase in cosmic rays reaching Earth's surface due to its weakened and rapidly weakening magnetic field.

Some of the weird effects being blamed on the virus:
These include skin rashes, diarrhea, kidney abnormalities and potentially life-threatening blood clots. It’s not unusual for viruses to directly infect and affect different tissues and organs in the body, but it is a bit unusual for a primarily respiratory virus like SARS-CoV-2, which is responsible for COVID-19, to have such a wide-ranging reach in the body.
https://time.com/5837591/unusual-symptoms-of-coronavirus/

Biological effects of space radiation:
"The effects related to various types of space radiation exposure that have been evaluated are: gene expression changes (primarily associated with programmed cell death and extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling), oxidative stress, gastrointestinal tract bacterial translocation and immune system activation, peripheral hematopoietic cell counts, emesis, blood coagulation, skin, behavior/fatigue (including social exploration, submaximal exercise treadmill and spontaneous locomotor activity), heart functions, alterations in biological endpoints related to astronaut vision problems (lumbar puncture/intracranial pressure, ocular ultrasound and histopathology studies), and survival, as well as long-term effects such as cancer and cataract development. "
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4170231/

5G FUD was thrown out there as a red herring for those who notice the similarities in COVID and radiation sickness.

All of this is a prelude to a coming solar Coronal Mass Ejection or micro-nova which will fit the description of all the ancient disaster myths resetting humanity to the stone age and triggering a new ice age.

CIA recently declassified a sanitized version of, The Adam and Eve Story:
https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP79B00752A000300070001-8.pdf


COVID, Climate Change, the Cold War... all dual purpose noble lies used as cover stories for governmental preps (DUMBs and Ark projects) for the coming return of the Sun with its Corona of thorns. This has to be hidden from the population to keep the economic engine going so the preps can continue right on up to the Day of the Lord when the moon turns to blood and those who are watching flee to the caves and the DUMBs.

Cheers!

The words of true wisdom...

"The Vaccine Should be Tested on Politicians First. If They Survive, the Vaccine Is Safe. If They Don’t, Then the Country Is Safe."

A long queue forming to administer the bleach I’m hearing.
I’m with the conspiracy theorists on this one: I think this is a stunt. People better hide their glee about Trump “having the virus” or the right will use it to keep claiming the left are heartless jerks who need to be punished. They’ll be claiming it anyway, I reckon. Meanwhile Trump will claim his superior genes and hydroxychloroquine+zinc cocktails might have spared him, except that, not really, since “the virus is a hoax” and it was just a mild cold, if that.

Maga land will cheer like it’s the original Easter when Trump resurrects from his quarantine tomb in time for the round two debates and says he’s back on his feet and back to work “like America needs to be” and then when there’s a close call election his wild card, the newly stacked Supreme Court will deliver us Trumps second term.

Voila, his huge deficit in the polls and all his legal issues resolved, just like that.
 
That Trump (and also Melania) has tested positive for the virus proves inarguable that the Sweden approach was and is the right approach.

Trump was the most protected man on the planet yet he still got it.

Get it? A pure no-brainer.
