There is a rumor going around my state regarding a scam that the public schools are pulling. So, the state has an annual deadline of September 18th for schools to confirm their enrollments. Those enrollment numbers determine funding for the next year.

The rumor is that schools are going to remain open for in person instruction until September 18, so they can count all of the students and then shut down for virtual learning for as long as possible so the teachers and administration can get a paid vacation again.

I believe it, my dealings with the local schoolboard during the pandemic so far have shown that their goals are to a) preserve their funding and b) justify zero layoffs.

Growing up, my school would bring us in on days that they knew they should've cancelled because of snow, but they get funding from the state based on how many days and students they have, and a "day" means a student was there for like two hours or something. So, they'd bring us in, keep us there for a few hours, and then say "Oh, snow's still falling, we'll send you home now before it gets any worse" so they could get get that state funding for each student who showed up for those two hours for the day.

Some good news from Switzerland, guys: Swiss authorities are permitting football stadia to admit two-thirds of their capacity as of 01/10/2020.


This will in turn put pressure on other European leagues to readmit fans in significant numbers, just as the restart of Germany's Bundesliga this summer began a domino effect for other soccer leagues.

Just got back from the gym. They had WWE on and the fans were actually thousands of screens around the wrestlers. The baseball game that was on had cardboard cutout fans. I think this is a form of psychological torture for sane people.

The citizens of Moscow, Idaho showed up in pretty large numbers today for another mask protest in the form of a Psalm / hymn sing. Several people were arrested yesterday. Today, the left/anti-Christians showed up... with drums... Generations come and go, but the left's juvenile fixation on disruption and percussion never changes.

 
Yes it all seems to be a propaganda war of attrition where the last sane man standing will be the winner. I quit drinking 7 years ago and wake up some mornings questioning my reality. I can't imagine how things would be if I was still fully influenced by an alcoholic hangover. Best of luck to those guys for surviving this rhetoric.

OPINION: We may need climate lockdowns to halt climate change, Mariana Mazzucato writes. That might mean governments limiting private vehicle use, banning consumption of red meat, etc. We must do capitalism differently to avoid that.

That's the only thing they want - covid is just their bullshit excuse like global warming. They are after that and only that. They are not concerned about grandma dying or such crap. It's the old environmental agenda. Prince Charles - the royal pedophile - has been talkign recently only about this crap - great reset due to covid blabla

The mask is slipping and they tell you what they want - you living in your restricted lifesyle without meat, travel and little heating until you die.

I also learned this one after starting homeschool with my kids in Tennessee. When they would do "half days" or early dismissal it was always at a weird time like 11:15am. It turns out, when I was reading the laws for what I had to do for my own homeschool records, that 11:15 or whatever it was, was the earliest a kid could be taken out of school and not be considered truant...aka counted for a full day's attendance.

Some public school teachers care about the kids, and some don't but everyone on up from the teachers from 'teaching leads' and principals on up through the administration and union do not give 1 crap about the kids. They are there to maximize benefits/income, minimize effort, exert political influence, expand or preserve their budget and gain social status. That's it.

From Wikipedia:

Set /sɛt/ or Seth /sɛθ/ (Egyptian: stẖ;) is a god of deserts, storms, disorder, violence, and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion. ... In the Osiris myth, the most important Egyptian myth, Set is portrayed as the usurper who killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris.


God of disorder, violence and foreigners?

Usurper who killed his own brother?

Hidden in plain sight much?

(if it's real, that is)

It would be good to find out a political breakdown of those committing / attempting suicide due to Plandemic cabin fever.

If it's a whole host of weak Soycialists attempting to top themselves... well... that's simply their vaunted "natural selection" in action...
