My body, my choice. Use it till it bleeds, use their propaganda against them until they eat dirt.

Hundreds gathered last Sunday afternoon in Ontario for an open-air church service, despite the crazy lockdown orders in the province.

This church has had their building seized by the gov't and are currently locked out, not to mention being fined multiple times in the past, and had at least one arrest of the pastor as well.

He doesn't mince words here and gave an excellent sermon. I'd love to hear more of this in Canada... not only public preaching, but also boldly calling out the government to repent of their lies and abuses of power. I'll spare the rest of my own commentary for now, but encourage you to have a listen to his message:

My friend is a landscapper and he was cutting someone's lawn when got asked if he has the sticker. He said no, and woman left. She sent him an email this morning on where to get it free, the list of incentives and gifts he will get and that he wont be mowing their lawn anymore until he gets it.

I have had two bad experiences recently - both in cafes. One of my favorite pastimes is to sit in a coffee shop reading or writing. Or should I say it was as now I can barely get in the door without being harassed about masks.

I tried to go to one near my house the other day. I entered and the man working behind the counter pointed to his mask and said,
'Face mask?'
'I'm exempt'
'Do you have a card?'
'I'm exempt'
'Can I see your card?'
'I'm exempt'
I then left the coffee shop

Today was even worse.
A man behind me in the queue said to me, 'Have you got a face mask?'
'I'm exempt'
'Can I see your card?'
*I turned away*
'Where's your card?'
'Sorry, I don't know you'
I then ordered my drink

The man went to the staff and complained about me. He said,
'He should be wearing a face mask'
'Maybe he's exempt'
'He's not exempt'
'How do you know?'
'He didn't have a card'
'Some people don't carry a card'
'He's a real pain in the butt'
'He comes here quite often'

And that was that. Luckily, I had chatted with the staff before and was somewhat on good terms with them so that helped.

I am partially to blame for this by not fully knowing how to respond to card demands.

I had a quick look at the uk govt website and it clearly states:

If you have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering:

  • you do not routinely need to show any written evidence of this
  • you do not need show an exemption card
This means that you do not need to seek advice or request a letter from a medical professional about your reason for not wearing a face covering.

However, some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering. This could be in the form of an exemption card, badge or even a home-made sign.

Carrying an exemption card or badge is a personal choice and is not required by law
So next time I am challenged I will say this and also have this website bookmarked on my phone.

These pathetic bullies are seriously ruining what should be a simple pleasure. I almost don't want to go to a coffee shop now but I really was a bit foolish not to have been prepared for such confrontations. I suppose I had faith in people. I was delusional enough to think they were saner than they truly are. I won't be making that mistake again.

I don't know why I didn't at least just say, 'I don't have a card with me right now' instead of my probably more guilty looking pleading the 5th amendment approach but as I said, I didn't want to make any kind of mistake that could be used against me.

I would also argue that I have a mental illness from wearing face masks if it came from that. I am fully within my rights in that case. Considering mental illness is a genuine reason for exemption these people are incredibly inconsiderate and cruel.

Mate, you don't need to explain yourself to people. Tell them to mind their own business, and if they keep hassling you, tell them that they're wearing their face mask so what's the problem.

I don't wear mine anymore, haven't done for about a month or so unless I'm in an uber for example because in that situation I want to be respectful to the driver who is likely spending his days living in brainwashed fear over catching it. If someone asked me if I had a face mask, I wouldn't answer them. If they insisted, I would tell them to leave me alone.

I see it as the compliant insist on compliance, "if I have to wear one, then so should he". Probably best to accept that such pleasures as sitting in a coffee shop are now a thing of the past, unless you want to keep bumping against the indoctrinated. Personally I cannot stand being around people in masks, it almost hurts--especially the big black muzzles. That these pitiful people don't understand they're taking part in ritual humiliation is hard to take. I go out and do my shopping and come back home.

This morning, a market employee pointed out to me the missing mask. However, the same lady has seen me countless times in the market without a face diaper and even chatted with me a little weeks ago when I was undecided which beer I wanted to buy.

This morning I entered the market and this time greeted with a nod of the head, just wanted to be friendly. That was probably a mistake.

She: "You are not wearing a mask."

I walked closer to her since my ears are weak: "Pardon".

She: "You don't have a mask on."

I moved my head to within 1 foot of hers and answered in a calm and low voice: "I always do my shopping here without."

She: "Just wanted to mention it."

Me: "OK" and moved on.

Later at the checkout no additional word on this issue.

That's how I was until I became yet another one of the huge wave of people moving from the west coast to a red state. I got so used to avoiding people and living a quarantine lifestyle that it feels weird showing my face in public and being polite to strangers. Still, I'm out and doing just that now for the first time in over a year.

There's still a lot of mask wearing, but not once have I been harassed, avoided, or even stared at for being maskless. I even smile at strangers like I used to, an innate habit that took months for me to stop, say "good afternoon" and the like. It's not really resisiting anymore since the CDC's update and being in a less fearful state, but still- who'd have thought that going out in public and being friendly would be taking the power back?

Try not speaking to them at all, not a single word.
 
If we don't wear a mask in a shop or a shopping mall then they must not serve you and the security guy can send you out of the building. So you can not unmask if you have something done. I have started to take off the mask after paying. Then they can freely ask me to leave because that is what I already intended to go :) Until now I was not bothered.

In shopping malls sometimes leaving the building is half of the time so it is an important win. (Yes, I have to enter the mall because some things are only available there.) Not much but honest rebellion.

Had a slight 'confrontation' today. Happened in the mall where I needed to get a few things from the big supermarket, I role in without a mask as I always do but most people are still masked inside despite it being very hot here today (in Poland).

As I'm paying for my stuff in the store the middle aged woman clerk tells me to put my mask on to pay, I said I don't wear masks then she says she won't serve me without one. I didn't say another word to her I simply stepped to the side to the next counter and was served normally by another woman. Felt like I dealt with the situation well by completely blanking her. Fortunately its been quite rare that I have been called out for not wearing a mask here.
 
...middle aged woman clerk tells me to put my mask on to pay...
What is the official rule in Poland where you live? Here in Hungary the clerk can not serve you otherwise she risks a very high penalty. That is why I have decided that I will not force them into this situation and I put on the mask when I communicate with the clerks. It is a very annoying situation for them either if they are pro-mask or against mask. And they did not choose to take part in this madness. They are also victims. So I sympathize with them.

I am not sure if this is the correct decision but I do this.

You're supposed to wear masks in stores here but I don't think there is any penalty or threats if you serve someone without one. The security don't really enforce it where I am, I walk past several in the mall and nobody cares most of the time. In the winter it was far more difficult when masks were mandated even outdoors.

Hungary does sound stricter than Poland with all this crap, I hear you've got that 'immunity' card majorly restricting anyone who hasn't got it. Poland is not at that stage yet fortunately.

Posting from Warsaw, Poland.

Its increasingly rare to see the silly masks in the street. Some weirdos still wear them for some weirdo reason. Its no longer required to wear them outside.

In my experience, its also weird to wear one inside a restaurant while sitting, or going to the toilet. It seems normal Polish people don't care and more often dislike your for wearing one..

Equally, I have yet to encounter a bolt/uber driver wearing one or requiring one. Shaking hands is also back.

I did see a few tables in the terribly ruined 'na lato' with women wearing masks between gulps of their cocktails. I have also seen kids being forced to wear them in the forests.

In a specialist doctors today, the waiting area contained no one wearing a mask, when i left there was a single woman waiting wearing one, who took it off when she saw I didnt care.

In many Zabkhas [small corner shop things] many people now ignore the masks also.

This is Warsaw, the capital of the idiot health fags, smaller cities/towns care less.

Writing you folks from the legendary St. Petersburg.

Been here for a week....it's full on 2019.

No restrictions, Nevsky Prospekt busier than I've ever seen...white nights at full effect.

have barely seen a single mask worn all week, even at metro/bus/shops....Writing this now at 2:40 am, with a view of Fontanka river from my Airbnb and it's as light as it could possibly be outside. Amazing!

Looks like the whole thing only lasted 2 months in Russia.....everyone and everything has moved on.

God, I'm looking for avenues to stay for a bit longer....Peter really is a magical city. a bit too hip and posh compared to Moscow and sadly I'm seeing more women with tattoeos than I used to last time I was here 3 years ago, but really still magical in its own way, especially during white nights. Blessed to be here. It's a blessing.

Went to a restaurant other day for dinner and they asked at the door for name and phone number for contact tracing. I just told them Jean Claude Van Damme and gave them a random number . They were like the actor? Im like no he copied me.

Its so stupid who in the right mind would give them a real name and number?

I know some places that when you come up to them and there is a wait they ask for your number to text you when your table is ready and those places , do report it to contact tracing. They do it without telling you.

Next week im torn between cycling my fav 90s action stars trying to see if i should be Charles Mongomery Norris or Stephan Eli Segal.
