Well now we know why HappyDaze lost his shit when people didn't buy into the Covid scam.
Because of increasingly stupid motherfuckers (like yourself, Snowman) that can't understand the situation? No, that's not why I gave up on the fucks here. I gave up on the clowns here making conservatives and conservative talking points look radical and idiotic.
Increasingly stupid motherfuckers like Gavin Newsom and Lori Lightfoot, who declare draconian lockdowns and then wipe their asses with their decrees?

You just want to be ruled, don't you?

Is that what he posted?  HappyDaze you miserable sellout dumb fuck I put you on IGNORE.  That means I cannot read your posts you idiot.  Your basically talking to the wind and wasting your time at this point.

Back to Ghost.  No HappyDaze doesn't just want to be ruled.  He wants to make the big bucks by profiting out of our misery.  Straight up 8th circle in hell shit right here.

I'm not for some of the more draconian lockdown practices those idiots preach, and I'm all about leaders following their own rules (I'm not a fan of hypocrites). It's not about wanting to be ruled; it's about understanding the benefits to an organized, systematic response to a threat (much as any soldier or sailor does). Everyone doing their own thing (whether they are governors or the guy on the street) might be a statement of individuality over being ruled, but it'll get people killed whether the restrictions ignored are traffic laws or COVID responses (though the former are often much more sudden and spectacular to watch).

Get over yourself, bitch. Even when I respond to your posts, I'm not doing it for your benefit. I don't need you to read what I post; I can be content knowing others are appreciating my mockery of you.

Spinachcat, you disingenuous slut...

It's long been known that cloth and surgical/procedure masks are not intended to protect the wearer--they are there to reduce transmission from the wearer to others. The idea is that you wearing a mask protects me, and me wearing a mask protects you because the mask acts as a baffle to impede the force of exhalation and thus the range of spread. These masks do not capture/block the virus, they slow the air carrying it. Call it a face diaper if you like, because like a diaper, it's designed to catch the shit of the wearer, not to keep others' shit off of the wearer. Note that N95 and other respirators (along with eye protection) are what you need to wear to protect yourself from the virus. They may look like masks, but they work differently.

I've said all of this before, back when I though people here cared about anything beyond their own narratives, and you'll note that the article you mentioned says all of this too. But I'm sure that part got ignored in favor of the moron-friendly message of "masks don't work" devoid of all context.

Which is of course utter horseshit, because they end up spreading any viruses from their hands as they repeatedly touch and adjust their masks, which are rarely, if ever washed. All that happens is the vector of transmission is adjusted, they don't "protect" anyone. With the added bonus of culturing all sorts of nasty bacteria in the mask, right in front of their mouths.

But keep telling yourself you're a virtuous human being thinking about the wellbeing of others.
Masking involves both wearing a mask and developing the discipline to not keep fucking with it. As for changing the vector, what the fuck do you think all of the hand sanitizer is supposed to be for? See how each step works together? And the nasty bacteria in the mask? That's stuff you already have inside you--the mask is unlikely to be a better environment for it to grow than your own respiratory tract.

HappyDaze wants to be one of the rulers. Hence his jumping on COVID as his empowerment to rule.

He ain't going to rule shit if that is the case.  He is going to be stuck with us if the globist wins and forced to hide in shadows all of his life for his traitorous actions.  Living each day in shame as his money withers to nothing and knowing he signed a pact with, figuratively speaking, devils.

You are fucking delusional. Healthcare workers providing healthcare services and making money from it isn't shameful; it's a profession.

Except the best evidence right now is that masks don't work. They could help a little, but the effect is small enough it's hard to isolate. It's a couple pages back now, but I posted a lot of links to the research in reply #696.

... and moderate Democratic President who himself has never been big on the culture war (and who himself never supported the Green New Deal by the way)....
https://joebiden.com/climate-plan/#
Quote from: Joe Biden's own website
Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face.

Yes which all the actual Green New Deal people have rightly called a brush-off. "framework" means "We start here and then change it to something reasonable IE more towards the center".
That's him, supporting the Green New Deal. Which is exactly what you said he didn't do.

How much more clear can he make it. Biden Says He Doesn't Support the Green New Deal. He said he "took inspiration" from it but that it's not that plan. Which is like saying the Hobbit movies "took inspiration" from the Hobbit book.

If you look at the details, which is what matters, you will find Biden does not support most of the objectionable portions of the Green New Deal.

Pat you cannot expect honesty from Mistwell.  He has the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome).

No, I don't. If Sanders or Warren had been the candidate I'd have considered voting for him. I have a history of defending Trump supporters to those who do freak out about Trump, particularly on race issues. You have put me in a convenient box because it's easier to dismiss me than it is for you to grapple with nuance where I don't fit the boxes you are used to.

Someone posted photos of Gavin Newsom's party. Needless to say, not much social distancing and forget masks.

You know, it really grinds my gears to see this sort of thing. People wonder why resistance to the 'restrictions' keeps ratcheting up? It's because we can see the 'noble elite' ignoring them.

Seriously I despise Newsom.

First he kept his winery open after he told other ones to close. Then he sent his kid to in-person private school after he told public schools to close. Then he went to a party with more than three families with rich lobbyists after he told people to not gather with more than three families. Then some of our legislature flew to Maui on the dime of lobbyists after issuing to everyone else a travel advisory.

And the latest is he was caught lying about it being an outdoor event. It was indoors, and we have a photo and witness proof of that. He was trying to spin it as "outdoors" because a sliding glass door was open for part of the event, but was closed after someone complained about how much noise the party was making.

He's a hypocritical asshole. I look forward to signing the recall petition for him.

Are we still supposed to follow the science?

Danish study says Masks = Bullshit
https://noqreport.com/2020/11/18/the-danish-study-face-masks-showed-no-impact-protecting-wearers-against-covid-19/

  I just about made a lady shit herself when she came around a corner and I had a respirator on (one I had tucked away, and it looks more like Bane's and is an actual respirator, not an n95).  We both had a laugh, after she could talk again.
As i prepare to go run a COVID testing site, one of my friends is working to get me a Cobra Commander hood with the COVID virus replacing the cobra head symbol. Then I will be COVID Commander!




Ha, I've been wearing a Cobra Commander mask most days!
