Hold up. How old do you have to be to have had a teacher use a black board??? I'm thinking not that old. My girls' (early 20's) classes definitely had them. Hell, it's economical. Those markers are, by comparison, expensive. F that. Plus they go missing. Chalk?? Who wants chalk????

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that it received 848 pages of documents revealing the contract materials and communications related to a $1 billion contract for face masks between the California Office of Emergency Services and the Chinese Communist Party linked BYD.
BYD reportedly has been barred by law from some federal contracts for providing faulty electric vehicles and lithium batteries to American buyers.
“The documents show how a well-connected and controversial Chinese firm was able to get a leg up on a billion-dollar mask contract with California politicians,” said Judicial Watch President @TomFitton.

They sure are having a lot of spikes where they are mandated. I'll need billions of dollars for research into whether more people get covid while using masks made in China or elsewhere. If the research shows the Chinese masks are causing the problem expect me and my research to disappear.;)[laugh]

And??? Like we’d be surprised by anything in CA. Remember the fake brown-outs about 20 years ago?

I watch a lot of #’s and can’t see anything like that. Places with “lots” of people have higher incidents of infection. Those places with lower populations and infections had problems, upped their protocols and then #’s dropped. I mean, look at the Dakotas. Do you really think they instituted a mandate THEN had a 12% infection rate? What about Sweden? No mandate. 9months of nothing. Then problems. Then mandates.

What it comes down to is when people spend copious time with others in close proximity with no masks. Like Christmas parties.

I’m not sure how much a mask is doing at Hannafords. What masks are doing is making people avoid people, which slows infection rates.

The gym I went to, through the entire pandemic, everyone working out with 95% no masks. 0 cases, contact tracing calls, etc etc

The odds of getting sick shopping at Hannaford or anywhere is very very low.

Stumbling around a crowded bar hugging people and drinking the wrong beer, sure your risk goes up.

But the idea that you walk by someone who is infected and a mask is needed or is keeping you safe is ridiculous.

There is something deeper going on that may not be related to population density or masks. This summer's Sturgis motorcycle rally had nearly 500,000 attendees in close proximity to each other and with practically no use of masks. The Karen's were all claiming that Sturgis would be a "super spreader event" and insisted that Governor Noem should cancel the event, which she refused to do. There was even one "study" performed post-Sturgis by economists claiming 250,000 'rona infections and billions of dollars in medical costs related to the event, yet the final CDC report in November only found an actual count of 86 infections among attendees. At that, the CDC report does not even claim that those 86 got 'rona AT Sturgis.

My point is that Sturgis has a disproportionately large number of white attendees compared to other population demographics. The attendees tend to be people who are constantly outside getting fresh air and sunshine. Compare that to the parts of the country with the largest 'rona spikes, NY in the spring and CA now. These two areas have had the most rigid of lock down orders and mask orders, yet, here we are.

I've heard rumors vitamin D can help fight it

We've had mask mandates for months, CA has been even worse and them and us have been having spikes. Sweden's population should have been wiped out by now. Also South Dakota and Florida's population should have been decimated by now. They're using cases to scare people and since the tests themselves are questionable who knows what is accurate. I'd posted this before: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnlj7dS82O4&feature=emb_logo

Here's the latest for Sweden. It is looking quite good to me. They are almost all the way down the backside of the curve. All these other places going on severe lockdown restrictions, all they are doing is extending the length of the curve. The area under the curve in the end is still going to be the same. A virus is gonna virus.

It's not deeper or complicated, it just comes down to that it doesn't spread that easily.

For instance how many times do you actually get sick when you can't think of a time you were around a sick person in a significant way? For me it's about 0.

The only unique things I see about Covid is it is possibly more contagious than other viruses right in the onset when nobody feels sick, but I am not convinced anyone has studied a typical flu for that trait. Then secondly a tiny percentage of the population have such an adverse reaction to it that it can kill more easily or have longer impact, however those folks are predominantly already dying of a known cause (and most of them still survive covid).

The reaction of people and governments has been such a panic everything is error on the safe side, listen to biased medical opinions (who only see sick people, always want safety over freedom, and are not looking at the big picture).

Bottom line most of the transmission goes on in environments that cannot be controlled but instead of accepting that fact all the focus is on mostly irrelevant environments that can be controlled.

Mmm. Maybe.

let’s ignore all the early stuff. Too many deaths of at-risk folks. Let’s look at the Dakotas.

Assume that their true historic rate is double what is listed. Deaths to cases goes to .75%

.75% of the US population is 2.4million people. More than die of all causes annually.

that’s not taking into account any disruptions in supply chains if we had widespread infection for a month or two.

I don’t have all the answers. I think that we are over-reacting and, as I’ve said above the majority of infections are close contact. But that also means that restaurants are still a big infection contributor. As are parties.

We won’t know how this really works or how to limit this for another 5-10 years. But for now, we can’t pick and choose stats that fit our own narrative. We need to find the most accurate and effective stats and do a better guess. Because we are all still guessing. Lol

Interesting Lancet article on Sweden

For me the common cold would have been picked up in the cube farm at work,
but never bothered to notice it was some particular sicko sneezing and coughing.

The only unique things I see about Covid is it is possibly more contagious than other viruses right in the onset when nobody feels sick, but I am not convinced anyone has studied a typical flu for that trait.
(As I must have posted elsewhere), the last time I saw a story about scientific findings,
the coronavirus rule of thumb was, "asymptomatic transmission but no pre-symptomatic transmission".

In other words, if someone really is sick but just barely sick,
so that you can't tell from casual observation,
then they could give it to you.

But

You can't get it from someone during their few-day gestation period between exposure and symptoms.
(Which flies in the face of much of the panic porn).

No. That's not what I said. It'll take 5-10 years of RESEARCH to figure it all out and find out what worked and what was total BS. In the lab, not on the street. LOL

Like in 2025 they'll be this big NOVA program on it and what they learned.

From a blog I read; this is how you deal with mask Karens:

He said I was not fit to be taken out in public. I melted.

So my friend Rocky swung by the house and caught me as I was getting ready to leave to get a few things at the supermarket. He wanted to talk so I told him to hop in with me.

Now Rocky is blessed with a cheerful disposition and cursed with the face of a man that has just been released from two decades of prison hard time even though he probably doesn't have a parking ticket. In a way he reminds me of Danny Trejo, the actor that specialized in slasher films and plays convicts. He's also pretty big.

Anyway, we were entering the supermarket but were well clear of it. I had just donned my mask and Rocky was fishing his out when some Karen snapped at him that he had better get his mask on.

Rocky is generally pretty fast on the uptake. He's kind and cheerful but doesn't take a whole lot of shit. He's fast but I was faster.

"Lady, that my WIFE you're talking to," I snapped. You better give the love of my life an apology before she bitch slaps you across the parking lot!"

Her look of confusion and fear was something to behold. She was looking at an angry 70 year old man and a man of about 45 years old that looked like he had just been released from Sing Sing. She didn't know what to do so she went to woman's default.

She turned on the water works and started blubbering out an apology. "I didn't know he's your wife," she sobbed.

"Well, you knew she's somebodies wife," I shot back. "You owe my wife an apology!"

She blubbered out a quick apology and fled.

I looked at Rocky who was beet red. He looked at me and stuttered, "I'm your WIFE? I ought to beat the hell out of you for that little stunt!" Then he settled down a bit. He shook his head sadly, laughed and said told me I was unfit to be taken out in public.

I overheard the following conversation between a few women walking past my house.
Brainwashing complete.

Karen 1: “I’m going to start calling out people who walk their dogs without masks.”
Karen 2: “Be careful! Remember how trump supporters were killing cops early in the pandemic over masks!”
