    Gotta love Indiana!
    Billboards just south of the Indiana-Michigan border have critiqued Michigan's pandemic restrictions on businesses over the last several months.

    It’s sad. A road trip feels like a jailbreak.

    It's really good to see people in leadership positions acting like the true leaders they are, and accepting responsibility for their failures...

    NY Gov Cuomo blames Covid deaths on nursing home STAFF and calls cover-up claims ‘political spin’
    Cuomo blames Covid deaths on nursing home STAFF & calls cover-up claims ‘spin’

    Remember just a few short weeks ago how the MSM was saying "all hail the great Cuomo, the minister truth". :eek:

    I am heartened by brilliant free thinkers like Scott Atlas but fear that they are howling at the moon. In this exceptionally well cited article Atlas outlines the total lack of efficacy of lockdowns and monstrous consequences of the mismanagement of the Wuhan virus outbreak by policymakers. He points out the abject failure of lockdown policies and shows how the massive collateral damage is being blamed not on their inherently flawed nature but rather on those who objected and resisted their implementation. Perversely the natural downward trend in cases over the last month will be attributed to the new administration even though the full extent of the collateral damage may not be apparent for decades. As policymakers continue to vaccinate the least vulnerable while ignoring the established science related to herd immunity, I must concur with Atlas that we may be hearing the final death rattle of the age of reason.

    that would be this article, from the advisers to our new President: Opinion | A Dismal Spring Awaits Unless We Slow the Spread of Covid-19 reading crap like that makes me want to be infected. if this is the quality of life that we can expect, it ain't worth it. these people are bat-shit crazy.

    local lawsuit : PiNZ part of lawsuit against Cuomo seeking OK to reopen
    PINZ PART OF LAWSUIT AGAINST CUOMO SEEKING OK TO REOPEN
    NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – Dozens of entertainment businesses, including PiNZ in Sangertown Square, are suing New York State and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to allow them to reopen.

    The suit claims Cuomo randomly decided when and how businesses could open throughout the pandemic, and several arcades, trampoline parks and other entertainment industries suffered in the end.


    The suit argues entertainment centers should be able to open following the same guidelines as gyms and other indoor recreation venues.

    “Gov. Cuomo continues to make random and arbitrary decisions as to which businesses can open, none of which are based on science or data,” said James G. Mermigis, attorney for the plaintiffs who filed the suit. “Gov. Cuomo and his team tasked with reopening our economy have ignored these family businesses, which have provided extensive evidence of how they can operate safely. The governor is destroying these family businesses, some of which may never recover.”

    PiNZ CEO David Breen says it’s unfair that places like casinos can open while arcades are still closed.

    “These casinos have much deeper pockets, number one, and they have direct lines to the state government officials with their tax base that they pay to play these games, and we don't have that,” he said. “So, we just got pushed aside, pushed aside, pushed aside, and we're done being pushed aside. It’s not fair.”

    i guess that's what it takes

    The governor’s announcement comes about two weeks after a state lawsuit from trampoline parks, laser tag facilities, arcades and other amusement centers.

    The same here in Canada, yet our ministry of truth ignores the decline, droning endless on about "new variants" and continues to crank up the fear mongering.

    that seems to be the "plan". no government anywhere in the world is taking credit for or claiming victory due to the decline. the decline goes against everything that was predicted or planned for. now it seems that they're engaged in fear mongering over things that i don't think science understands. it's almost as if they're disappointed. their Christmas/New Years "surge on a surge" never happened. now their "4th wave"due to the variants isn't happening either.

    doh! might be hard to justify a 2T covid relief bill for a virus that dying out on it's own. then there's the upcoming 3T infrastructure/stimulus proposal. we need that virus!!

    Now they are clutching at straws, so new variants are required. This article provides a concise update on what is circulating out there. What is noteworthy the only thing established is some of the variants may be more contagious. The science hasn't demonstrated increased leathality nevertheless the MSM maintains its fear mongering.

    You will be hearing more of the term "Zerocovid" in the near future. "...the coronavirus pandemic has given us the opportunity to reset in order to address inequities in society and threats posed by climate change." If you are interested in how the reset will unfold this article is worth a read.

    I hope my theory is correct, that large cities will have rules that are continuing on the path of wrapping your body in a protective bubble, while small towns use common sense, and stop following the phony rules that have been forced upon us.

    I stopped reading the above article when it said that lockdowns haven't gone far enough. Again, it sounds like my mom.
