Does Anyone Think We Rushed Into Going Back To Normal For Memorial Day?.....

When many Covid restrictions were lifted to welcome in Memorial Day and the summer - I was skeptical. I thought we were rushing through to normalcy because people were getting antsy to get back to normal and businesses wanted to open to recover from their months of being down or running at 50% capacity.

July 4th wasn't too far away after that. All sorts of super spreader events held and people out in droves without masks, not social distancing and really not knowing who was vaccinated and who was not.

We were told the vaccinated didn't need to wear masks - but the non-vaccinated needed to wear their masks.

Now come on now. Do you trust anti-vaxxers to wear a mask.

Well - we knew of the threat of the 'delta variant' back then - but because it wasn't that prevalent in the U.S. - we threw caution to the wind.

And now we're getting back to where we started. Only this time - people have become more distrustful of the experts that are making the rules.

Why couldn't we just stay cautious at the start of summer and not open things up all the way like we did. We're paying for it now.

I wonder if the CDC had it to do over again - if they would have made a different decision?

There Was That Brief Moment On 1/6 When The Insurrectionists Orderly Walked Thru The.......

rope stanchions in Statuary Hall. This was at the very beginning of the riots and mayhem that ensued in and around that building that day.

What killed that moment for them was when a man, later identified as Adam Johnson of Florida, was seen carrying House Speaker Nancy Pelosiís lectern as a mob entered the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021 in Washington, DC..

It was clear from that moment on that - these were not just normal tourists checking out the Capitol.

This was just a blip of time in the unraveling of the destructive events of the day.

Anybody taking these early images and saying these were just tourists - is trying real hard to provide and excuse for this obvious insurrection and attempt at a coup to stop the certification of the election.

I Learned Today That My Doctor Is Passing On To His Patients/Customers His Processing Fee He Pays...

to credit card companies.

I told him I've been using only my credit card and not using cash - because of the pandemic and didn't want to deal with dirty money or change. I was trying to keep myself safe - and now I'm being charged for that when I use my credit card.

I told him as a business man - paying the credit card processing fee is a cost of doing business and is good customer service - making things more convenient for his customers.

Now Is The Time To Float The Thought That Anyone Refusing To Testify Or Ignoring A Subpoena......

for this 1/6 commission has something to hide or somebody to protect; would most probably be guilty of breaking some law(s); and is afraid to face the American People.

They should get that thought out their now - before they start issuing subpoena's so as to force these people into a box that will prevent them from ignoring the subpoena's and the work of this commission that is trying to get to the bottom of this insurrection and prevent future insurrections.

Almost Had A Run-In With A Karen Today - But Kept My Cool And Didn't Engage....

Just finished an exam at my Dr's Office. Office rules are that everyone is required to wear a mask. I was at the front desk paying my bill when this lady about 45 - 55 y/o came in to the front desk - without a mask - and said she was there for her appointment with the Dr.

The receptionist told the lady that she needed to wear a mask and the lady replied "I don't need to. I had Covid and I have the antibodies."

Now if I was the receptionist I would have said - sorry lady - these are the office rules - you come back when you have a mask on.

Instead - she said - well we don't have a mask we can give you - and she proceeded to call on of the other office people - to escort this lady to a Guest Waiting Room.

When I heard this lady say she had Covid and has the antibodies and didn't need a mask - I made it very visible that I was upset and I deliberately move back about three more feet between us. I made sure that she saw that I did that. Now I was about 8-9 feet away from her.

Now I could have engaged her and got into it with her - and I probably should have - but in this last 18 months I've completely lost patience with and just don't trust anyone anymore. I'm becoming a old man curmudgeon.

I couldn't wait to get out of that office and back in my car.

This lady wore the fact that she had Covid and didn't need to wear a mask - like a badge of honor. She acted very proud that she was able to say that to the receptionist.

I'm sorry - if it were my business - I would have kicked this woman out.

I Want To Know What Was Discussed At Tr**p's DC Hotel - The Day(s) Before 1/6....

I seem to recall a picture of Roger Stone walking out of the hotel surrounded by what looked like body guards.

Where the plans for 1/6 being finalized then? Was Rudy there? Weren't Don Jr and Eric there as well? Who else?

Heard Again Yesterday That The Joint Chiefs Were All Going To Resign One-By-One If....

Tr**p pushed for martial law or a coup. That this was their plan for stopping him.

I'm bothered by and question their judgement on this plan - because - if they would have all resigned - Tr**p would have been in the position to appoint his cronies and he would be able to follow through on his plan.

Have any of the Joint Chiefs addressed this concern?

I Don't Think Many Americans Realize That The Capitol Bldg Was Breached.....

on all sides. Multiple points of entry. That suggests to me that these terrorists had a plan and were organized.

Can Somebody Take A Clip Of The 1/6 Insurrection Video & Play Helter Skelter...

as its soundtrack. I think that would make a very powerful combination when seen and heard together.

I watched the movie 'Across the Universe' over the weekend and that's where I got the idea for somebody to do this. I would - but don't know how to pull that off.

Do We Need To Counteract The Karen's And Kevin's Out There?......

Here's my thoughts.

I've been seeing many posts here at DU and on the Internet of Karen's and Kevin's throwing fits - in stores, on planes, in the middle of a street - about their rights being infringed upon and that they won't wear masks or get vaxxed.

Is it time that we had some Kathy and Ken posts to counteract the Karen's and Kevin's out there.

Up to now - we've been pretty calm, cool and collected about dealing with Covid and the pandemic. We've made rational arguments as to why we should be masked and why we should get vaxxed. We've tried to reason with people and are now realizing that 'reason isn't working'.

However, everyday, and more so now than ever - we've been running into these dangerous and careless people that say they don't need to wear a mask or they don't need to get vaccinated. They're healthy and they don't want their rights taken away from them or to be dictated to by the government.

They've thrown caution to the wind and they are endangering those of us that are doing what we should be doing to protect ourselves, our kids and grandkids and others from this scourge.

Now I'm beginning to lose my patience. Maybe its time that we have some Kathy's and Ken's on our side that go off on these dangerous and careless people and tell them - in no uncertain terms - and in their own vernacular and style - not being nice to them anymore.

We need to go on tirade's and dish back what they've been dishing out at us that are trying to do the right thing.

About a week ago - I posted here on DU - that we 'tried the carrot and now it's time for the stick'.

Does anyone think I might be on to something here by advocating we post some viral videos on the internet - that counteract the Karen and Kevin - posts out there.

Maybe that's the only way these Karen's and Kevin's will get the message. Give them a taste of their own medicine.
