The thing with the “unvaxxed wear masks” rules here in Wisconsin is that in typical USAmerican fashion, we’re doing it half-assed, with the result that anyone who wants to can ditch their face-mask now. I suppose I’ll keep a mask in my rear back-pocket of my pants for the next few years, but seriously nobody is going to come up to you in a store or wherever and demand to see your “proof of vaccination”. I think here in Wisconsin we’re at the point where we don’t really believe masks do anything much to help stop the spread of airborne viruses, and even if they did, we still just don’t care anymore. Hoo-ray, I can eyeball the beautiful young men again! (No, “Me-Too-ers”, I don’t leer, I just look and try to make it appear as casual as possible.)June 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm #77666Dr. DParticipant
“if one accord is denounced by CH, all the rest fall flat,”
Soooo…basically extortion and terrorism. And the government said “Yup! We’re the top negotiators: looks good to us! Nothing could possibly go wrong!” And everyone will pretend it’s an “accident”.
You can’t BE that stupid on accident. Accidents involve random things happening, not the world’s most predictable things, ever.
“Polish and Slovak guys and gals go and work in Germany and France, and they are paid …like in their country”
Soooo…legalized slavery and human trafficking, just like in the ‘States. Got it. What’s not to like? That even includes E. European sex workers, so got the whole labor market covered. Aren’t they 14 too, just like RBG wanted back ‘when? So. Proud.
“High pay in CH”. Yeah, have they seen the cost of living in Geneva? Srs? Why can’t we live in San Fran and get paid prices from Bangalore? What’s wrong with these guys? “I can’t eat, I’M going to die, Me Me Me…” Don’t ya know we got $5,000 ice cream fridges to buy? Police will just have to live in Death Valley and commute. (This is actually happening).
At least the Swiss retain some sense, not being part of the EU.
Wear your gold star mask with pride. Remember it’s gold! They are self-selecting. Now you know who can be trusted: they’re either masked or skirting it. Ignore the others, they’re not trustworthy and may die soon. (Or not. Still waiting for final info)
Thanks to America, despite every attempt, exploit, and loophole, I can’t get any work done at all anymore and I’m here instead. That’s okay, they’re really doing me a favor: like all of us, I’m punished if I work and rewarded if I don’t anyway. When they’ve reached their heart’s desire and you hear Americans are now living in caves and tents, you’ll know they’ve finally succeed.June 18, 2021 at 6:06 pm #77667
Gotta love this. Delta variant likened to a “bad cold”. So let’s all freak out and get a vax with extreme effects over a bad cold? They admit it.

““Covid is also acting differently now,” Spector noted in a YouTube briefing last week. “It’s more like a bad cold in this younger population”
Actually, that is exactly the same. They were all LYING, and now that the facts are confirmed, keep LYING, and when something new happens, LIE by pretending the same is new.
Covid was always 99.97% safe. It’s 99.997% safe if you’re under 70. That is, it’s a “bad cold”. As seen by how Influenza and Pneumonia were cured! 0% deaths, instead becoming Covid.
Always always safe. Safe then, safe now. Maybe it existed for 1,000 years: no one ever tested before, nor would have noticed. Kidding, but as Day says, probably appeared as early as October and nobody noticed.
And safe, relatively. What is Measles, a disease we used to get on purpose? About the same. What was a REAL pandemic like smallpox? 10%. 1 in 10. I know everyone’s bad at math, run screaming from the room, horizontally body tackle anyone who poses math on their lips, straightjacket and disappear them, but 99.997% is one in one hundred, one thousand, ten thousand, three in a hundred thousand.
Three per city. SHUT IT DOWN Mr. PRESIDENT. Kill ’em all, let God sort them out!
Death rate? Hardly rose, just pulled a few forward. U.K. death rate at 5 year low. Still shut down. Well, ya know, they’ve got the variant, which is a bad head cold. SHUT IT DOWN.

I hate raffles, gambling, sweepstakes, and lotteries.
TPTB…do they realize that prizes — even definite, guaranteed prizes, not maybes — only work for a subset of the population?
I have 3 kids.
One is motivated by rewards. He loves it when he is enrolled token systems at school, in a behavioral health program, at home. In order to parent him I had to figure this out, and work with it.
His twin could take or leave token systems. Rewards are nice to this son, but he tends to do chores and such for the intangible benefits of parental approbation.
My daughter feels manipulated by reward systems. When she is asked to do something, she wants to control the how and when. If there is a reward attached she will work towards it if it is convenient for her, and as long as I understand that she doesn’t have to do it, and sometimes she may not.
A lot of us see through reward systems. Raffles for doing a medical procedure — do they really think that we are that mindless and stupid? The rewards reveal their hand.
Of course, this is the carrot. Next will be the stick. (Oh, and “the stick” never worked al that well with any of my three kids.). (“Stick” used figuratively for “punitive consequences.”)
And, yes, many do see the unvaxed as stupid…because that is how people deluded by brainwashing see those who are not so deluded.June 18, 2021 at 7:51 pm #77675
I don’t think we should forget that there was an unfortunate subset of the under-60, relatively-healthy population that ended up receiving a very nasty wallop from Covid-19 on account of their innate immunological allotment not being to fend off the virus, and if it weren’t for the cytokine-storm-disruption protocol utilizing steroids (and blood thinners for the clotting) developed by Dr. Pierre Kory, I think more of this unfortunate handful might have perished in the hospital. A few of them actually did. This isn’t surprising, as we all know by now that Covid-19 was made in a lab to be meaner than the average coronavirus!June 18, 2021 at 7:53 pm #77676

You stand in line at a jazz club. The doorperson asks to scan your pass. You’re allowed into the club.
You’ve just volunteered your Personal Health Information to the doorman, who, by allowing you in, has just communicated that bit of Personal Health Information to all the other folks in line, the other staff in the venue, the musicians, any passers-by. I assume that, even though they might not see the PHI facet of this, they surely know they are deliberately communicating that one status point (with MANY connections) to hundreds of third-party participants in the exchange.
That violation of HIPAA is a felony with a possible 10 year prison sentence.
You can’t get to the folks at the top of this. It’s the attacker/defender paradigm. How can you defend against new threats? How can you detect new threats in a pool of 8bn people? Think globally, act locally. Break the tools. Misused tools often break. Oops. Shoudn’t’a used that screwdriver to pry my 302 block into position. The Gates, Fauci, Schwab et al are tools. They are not invulnerable, and can be broken. They are obviously not the critical parts, as they seem to have fallen under a passing vehicle at some point. But there appears to be a need to have something like them to get things done.
So…excommunication. I have a hard time with the lamp-posts concept (was raised a peacenik), but I can certainly see us letting them all flee to NZ or Patag, and just barricading them.

Two competing energy transition strategies
Elites of China/Russia/Iran: fossil fuels—>nuclear fission—>nuclear fusion
Elites of the West: fossil fuels—>depopulation—>nuclear fusion
Jeff Bezos-Backed Company To Build Fusion Plant In UK
By Irina Slav – Jun 17, 2021, 10:30 AM CDT
Canadian General Fusion, a company backed by Amazon, is set to build a demonstration nuclear fusion reactor in Oxfordshire, the BBC reports, adding the facility will be 70 percent the size of a commercial reactor.
The news comes a couple of weeks after the UK government said it would start work to create a regulatory framework for supporting research and development of nuclear fusion technology to enable the delivery of clean and safe energy.
Nuclear fusion has been garnering growing attention amid government efforts to pursue an energy transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable sources of energy. To date, the biggest project aiming to recreate the process by which the Sun generates energy is ITER in France, which is planned to begin operation in 2035, after a series of delays.
Another, very different, fusion project is taking place in California. The researchers behind the General Atomics DIII-D National Fusion Facility recently published a paper suggesting a “compact nuclear fusion plant” concept can achieve 200 megawatts (MW) of net electricity after the energy cost of the fusion process through the use of relatively tiny, self-sustaining tokamaks powered by pressurized plasma, rather than the mega-tokamak of the ITER project.
In the UK, the Atomic Energy Authority is building the Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production (STEP), a prototype fusion power plant it plans to be operational by 2040. Last month, the AEA announced a breakthrough that would allow the components of the fusion reactor to last longer despite the intense heat produced during the fusion process, potentially bringing commercially viable fusion closer to reality.
China is also working on nuclear fusion. In May, researchers working on the country’s artificial sun project announced they had achieved plasma of 120 million degrees Celsius for close to two minutes. The duration of the successful experiment shows hope, but it also shows the long road nuclear fusion has yet to go to reach commercial viability.

While speaking with my step-mum last Sunday, she complained again about the amount of pressure she was under to get vaccinated. Doctors insisting, close friends and family accusing her of putting her and my father’s life at risk, eye rolls, neighbors asking, ads saturating the airwaves, and even traffic message signs. It’s a full court press and she’s feeling the heat.
I told her that this was intentional, that very few have the strength to resist so much social pressure. Like most, she seriously underestimates the power of peer pressure, and how much of what we do it conditioned by it. I said, “If you went shopping tomorrow and every woman you met was wearing black leotards, you would immediately feel uncomfortable and would make a beeline for the nearest clothing store to get a pair.” That’s how important it is for us to “fit in”.
It reminded me of the Solomon Asch Conformity Experiment in which several people were asked to select which of 3 lines were the same length as the target line. The actual subject undergoing the experiment didn’t realize that all the others in the room were stooges who were all assigned to pick the same wrong answer. By the time the actual subject chose (being last), he felt a great deal of pressure to give the same answer as all the others, even though he thought it was incorrect.
Humans are herding animals. Very few have the courage or strength to stand alone against the prevailing narrative. Maybe it all goes back to the days when banishment or exile meant certain death. The whole “there is safety in numbers” phenomenon.
So, all those doctors who are currently turning a blind eye to patients that are coming in with vaccine related injuries, turning them away like they are radioactive, telling them to see a psychologist, etc., are they doing so because of peer pressure? And what about those who send newly diagnosed Covid-positive patients away without treatment, telling them to come back when they can’t breathe and their lips turn blue?
Peer pressure? I don’t think so. When doctors are threatened with their position and livelihood if they dare attempt to treat a Covid patient with anything other than a Big Pharma product, that sounds more like extortion. There are always those who are oblivious, and drift along with the prevailing medical orthodoxy until someone tells them otherwise, but I believe that the majority willingly submit to the extortion, thereby placing their own welfare above that of their patients. Picking the wrong answer, not because they’re psychologically uncomfortable, but because they’ll be punished if the don’t.June 18, 2021 at 9:31 pm #77683

‘California launches digital COVID-19 vaccine pass but won’t require it’:
“California officials on Friday unveiled a website to access or download a digital copy of COVID-19 immunization records, though they stressed the state would not make it mandatory to carry the vaccine credentials.

Being from upnorth, I love blueberries!
One of my favorite things to do, as a kid, up north in the fall, was when the family went out blueberry picking. The blueberries in the far north are very small. Actually tiny. If we we lucky, the family would pick enough blueberries to bake a blueberry pie. If not, then blueberry tarts. Both were delicious!
These days it is mostly the much larger domestic blueberries.
In the winter we get blueberries from Argentina, Chile, and later Peru.
Four weeks ago it was Georgia blueberries!
Two weeks ago it was North Carolina blueberries!
Now it is New Jersey blueberries!
In a few weeks time it will be Ontario blueberries!
By late-July to August, it will then be British Columbia blueberries!
The fall is the worst time, because there are few blueberries to be had from anywhere! I then suffer cold turkey blueberry withdrawal symptoms!June 18, 2021 at 10:38 pm #77692
Just wondering if you are a fisherman? I think trout fishing season should be just around the corner! As a kid I just loved to fish for speckle brook trout using worms.

As viruses age and mutate they generally get less virulent because killing all the hosts leaves no room for replication.
So the BS that will be pedaled this fall, that some Covid ‘variant’ is worst than the original will be for propaganda and control purposes and most important, to sell ‘boosters’ to the Plebs.

Yes, I keep frozen wild blueberries all year round in the freezer to make blueberry pancakes! I think most of Canada’s frozen wild blueberries come from northern Nova Scotia. Ann Murry country! Blueberry fields everywhere!
In mid 2000s we, as a family, toured the northern half of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island, PEI, and Southern New Brunswick. That is when I discovered the frozen wild blueberry capital of Canada. They have a massive plant just for freezing the fresh wild blueberries.
