Resisting against coronavirus laws

Going maskless, like Game, is something that you have to keep practicing or else you'll lose your skill and nerve. Just now I came from Smart and Final, which I am told is very inflexible with regard to their mask rules. Here's how it played out:
  • I came prepared. I had in hand a copy of the California Guidance for Face Coverings with the portion for exemptions underlined.
  • In general, I avoided making a scene when possible. Notably this means avoiding eye contact. People typically do not go out of the way to notice things besides what they're focused on and so long as you're not actively getting in their way, they won't get in yours either.
  • Despite my best efforts, I was called out by an employee. I showed them the excerpt in the Guidance but she wouldn't take it. Which leads to my final point and something I hadn't done in earlier confrontations (but wish I did)...
  • DOUBLE DOWN. While this sounds confrontational, if you play your cards right it won't seem that way at all. With all my cool and calm, I replied, "I'll just be a few minutes." Employee relented and left me alone.
There was a big line, like there is everywhere in VirusRegime. It of course felt weird being the only maskless person there and highly visible--but keep calm and collected, I carried on like nothing was out of the ordinary.

If things got really ugly, I simply would have just left.

Employee: "Sir, you have to wear a mask."
Me: "Got it. Thank you." Proceeding to keep walking.
Employee: "Sir, you have to wear a mask."
Me: "Oh, yes, we're not wearing masks."
Employee: confused, semi-compliant look.
Me: "Can you imagine depriving the world of these incredible lips?" Pointing in a circular fashion to my mouth.
Employee: smiles and laughs, waving me on.

True story.

It's also worked by just saying "we don't wear masks."

Most of you underestimate how badly people want this to stop but also how compliant they really are. "We" aren't wearing masks, I suspect, is ambiguous, even if they're wearing a mask. It violates their expectations of a disagreement or your submission. That's your in.

They want to comply...even with your commands.
 
I am still trying to wrap my head around how people, Americans in particular despite the spirit of American rebellion, are so intense on policing each other on muzzles. If I walked in to a store and saw a man in a thong with a dildo on his head I wouldn't tell him to put clothes on... I'd leave. It's not my business. People are extremely foul mouthed and angry about it... its like they're anonymously shitposting in real life.

People generally believe the strong evidence that Coronavirus is a threat to not only them, but should they get infected, their loved ones, co-workers and neighbors. It is a matter of respecting other people's lives. Yes, the young and middle aged will most likely be okay if they get infected, but they could still infect older people, and end up killing them. I admit that face masks are not 100%, but far better than doing nothing.

What concerns me most is the economy and people losing jobs, not being able to pay rent, going hungry and becoming homeless! Many Americans are financially struggling to the extreme right now, and things will get crazy in the streets, unless we get the economy going again, for the majority and the underclass working poor. We need to do regular monthly payments in America, just as they are being done in other western nations. But we cannot do that indefinitely, and so the economy must be fully re-opened fairly soon. Meanwhile, the Republicans must not stop the poor and middle class from getting the monthly financial aid they desperately need right now.

On Facebook, I have prosperous friends who post all these memes about the evil of "choosing money over lives." But people must have/make money to pay their bills and not become homeless. This seems to be forgotten. Every life lost to Coronavirus is tragic, but when you think that America loses about 7,500 people every non-pandemic day to car crashes, cancer, heart disease, accidents, murder, etc., and that the pandemic adds roughly 1,200 extra people to that statistic, it keeps things in perspective. Things are bad, but they could be infinitely worse!

We needed decisive leadership across the board, but we as a nation have sure not gotten it.

Yeah - that isn't happening - there is no uptick in real deaths in the US and corona is adding zero. Corona is substracting even some. It's such a terrible pandemic that mortality is lower than normal. It's bullshit. You can reassign deaths to corona all you want, that does not make it true. And the few that were killed with pressure ventilators and high-dosage toxic drugs - that was only working in local areas with little impact anywhere else.


Things thus are not bad on that front. The only bad thing is the shutdown.

They even recently admitted that the US has now more extra suicides than official corona deaths!
 


Hmmm..................... Well, comrade, your comic strip choice makes these thoughts come to mind....

"Wray told the House judiciary committee that Russia, just as it did in 2016, is relying on a covert social media campaign aimed at dividing American public opinion and sowing discord.

That effort, which involves fictional personas, bots, social media postings and disinformation, may have an election-year uptick but is also a round-the-clock threat that is in some ways harder to combat than an election system hack, Wray said.

“Unlike a cyber-attack on an election infrastructure, that kind of effort – disinformation – in a world where we have a first amendment and believe strongly in freedom of expression, the FBI is not going to be in the business of being the truth police and monitoring disinformation online,” Wray said."

More power to you man, but fuck me, EVERYONE should be doing this.

Just think, 80% of people out there KNOW they don't need to wear a mask...

But they do, just to make life easier. Or because they're too weak and spineless to 'make a scene'.

Kill me.

Oh, wait. That's most likely what they'll do.

If you know masks are bullshit, and you wear one anyway just because Fauchi told you to, shame on you.

That's exactly why this guy has to plan has mask-free shopping trips like a guerilla operation.

(If I wasn't so alpha, I could cry)

As a business owner, I try to respect others' liability concerns, so if I'm in a rush I'll wear one of those neckerchiefs in the most useless way possible. At the very least my nose is always exposed.

In general, I like wearing a plague doctor's mask. Due to government edict we had to start enforcing them at work (prior to this week we were still maskless). I enjoyed serving customers with it on. The creepy part was it didn't seem to engender a reaction. Like that's just normal, because this is equivalent to the bubonic plague? Business was terrible, though, as people seem to just not want to go out with the mask edict in effect.

Today we had to start wearing masks in Church. I refrained from the plague mask, though I was tempted, out of respect for the Lord. I wore my neckerchief-mask around my chin most of the Service, as I can't sing properly with that thing on. A couple of the ornery older men were wearing theirs around the chin as well. However, many larger families simply boycotted the Divine Service entirely. I don't support skipping the Sabbath, but at the same time I appreciated their basedness.

Some better, more detailed footage:


The police shuts it down at the end.

If they had come out in support of BLM and the druggie Floyd, then they would have applauded them for their courage and conviction, because that protest is just and actually lowers covid cases. But this - peaceful congregation of common folk - that is a no-go. The idea that there are any Neonazis left in Germany is batshit insane. Some if not all of the leading organizers of the protests are even more open borders, mass immigration and are on board with all the gender-gay agenda. They are just people who did not receive the right kind of top-down update when it comes to the covid dictatorship. It's clearly a protest that strangely unites both left and right at least in Germany. Only the far-left like Antifa is opposed to it - as well as those who listen to orders from above regardless of the content.

Figured I would provide an update and maybe a reference point for other fathers here that are worried about "next steps" in the schooling culture within the USA!

Earlier, I worded my post wrong! The Board DID NOT vote. It was a proposal by the school administrators that was shown off around the district through social media and local media and feedback was requested, at which time I made my original post! It was to be voted on last week at the regularly scheduled Board Meeting. Naturally, many parents were interested and many attended the meeting

I provided feedback and so did 1,800 parents in our district, lot of them harpies and left wingers that subscribe to the 100% remote learning concept. The fact that this plan was already out there and social media was full of support for it made us less than hopeful! That said, my feedback included references and links to the Academy of American Pediatrics' (AAP) guidance [https://services.aap.org/en/pages/2...ons-return-to-in-person-education-in-schools/] as well as references to other districts' plans which have decided to open up in person with a hybrid plan.

So we watched the meeting as well on live stream in Youtube....I kept hearing the Board members vote Yes to this shitty remote learning plan and in comes.......BOOOOM...

.....A board member with BALLS! Went through the entire set of reasoning that I (and likely others) had in our feedback. Then kind of like dominoes the remaining 2 board members also vote no. To give you some context, one of the board members in support of remote learning (short haired older woman) said something along the lines of "This sounds harsh but teachers are there to educate your kids, not babysit them." That didn't go well!

Anyways, long story short, the resolution for remote learning DID NOT PASS. So they are back to the drawing board. Yesterday, we had the Teacher's Union out there protesting on the local news station and I hear they are likely going to put "sheep's clothing" around the same plan and peddle it to us again. I hope the based board member and his supporters hold strong....

That all said, I just showed you what's happening locally in my district BUT this appears to be happening everywhere. Essentially a hybrid/remote plan is already approved by the Board and then in comes the Teacher's Union to shit all over it.

I'd love to get others' perspective..

This is painful to report... BUT..

They had another vote on a new plan which was basically just another "Remote Learning" plan with minor adjustments on safety. The previous 3-3 vote got overturned by one board member that decided to vote FOR the plan and it went 4-2. The reason he gave for his vote was that he "wanted to break the tie." Basically, it was the old plan in sheep's clothing. What a cuck!

Not only this. In the past week a few districts that voted to be hybrid now have overturned and went to Remote. Not a shocker at this point.

This not only sucks for me as a parent but many other parents across the country whose representation is being overturned by harpies that really don't care about the effects of remote learning and lack of access to school resources (e.g. abuse).

We don't know what happened but the reality is that these plans are put together by the administration of the school district. They likely got extreme pressure from Teacher's Unions! There's the culprit. These unions are putting enough pressure on the administrations and using the old emotional arguments.

Not to mention, now we have this. A childrens camp in Georgia got infected with 100s of cases for children. MSM is using this against schools reopening. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6931e1.htm

I know this thread is about resisting coronavirus laws, for which, like someone already pointed out, we would just have to move out. That just isn't an option and it's hard not to be bitter, but at this point resistance is futile.

Same where I live. It was the teacher's unions. The teachers have ZERO incentive to go back to school. They get the same pay to just work from home and do "online teaching" which is fewer hours and less work -- most of the online assignments are created by the instructional specialists at the main office. So who wouldn't turn down online teaching, when it's the same pay as in-school, but for less work and fewer hours. Sweet deal!

The board of education should tell teachers you get a 20% pay cut while teaching from home, then it goes back to normal if you teach in school.. but since the board members get huge campaign contributions from the union, then that's not going to happen.

For your kids sake, you need to take this one into your own hands. What some parents are doing near me is hiring a college student or fresh graduate to be a tutor, and setting up a "pod" of a few other kids, and they meet at someone's house each day and learn that way.

Or another approach is to enroll your kids in private. In most areas, they are still allowed to stay open, and they have smaller class sizes so it's easy to meet all the social distancing requirements and so on.

@An0dyne...

What's a plague mask?

Another nice idea for passive resistance is to print a statement that might lead others to question things...

Like '#pizzagate' or '#pedowood'...

Something like this:



Doctors and medical personnel during bouts of the Plague would wear them stuffed with various spices for protection.
