    There's no reason not to believe in nWo. They started taking things over on live TV in 1996.

    Ive had numerous older folk bring up Bill Gates and 5G....you wouldn't see this 10 years ago. Conspiracy Theories are pretty much mainstream as it gets now, and it will just continue to grow. I had younger cousin bring up reptilians, I was like....reptilians ?!? You know about that? Even David Ickes stuff is mainstream now.

    But why are people so dumb and have zero interest in even basic physics. 5G is nothing, it's all the same electromagnetic waves on a low energy frequency. You get blasted every day with EM waves on the UV spectrum that damage your skin and DNA not to mention stray X-Rays or gamma background radiation. 5G is in the cell provider spectrum, it can't do shit to you, it's just a different way to process the data

    Maybe somebody on one of your favorite websites hung it out there and you gobbled it up, hook, line, and sinker. And then puked it all back up.

    I don't really think this is true. I thin it probably just gets amplified on a message board. Most people I know despise Trump and the modern republican party, but they are also generally of the belief that putting the economy into an indefinite coma falls somewhere between "not worth it" and "never fully justified in the first place." The fact is that a lot of small businesses are going to shut down and economic activity come to a halt anyway if there is a second surge. If we start seeing spikes in a few weeks, I don't think its going to be the hardest sell to get people to lock down again. I'm not talking about Ted Nugent and like-minded nitwits, just regular folks.

    This is my fear . A second lock down will be stricter and probably more widely accepted. A lot of people around here don’t really get it... having family back in ny I always have to reassure anyone I talk to that it is real and to pray it never gets like that around here. Simple and inexpensive steps can be taken like distancing and wearing a mask in stores, but there are so many refusing to do it. I have no doubt that we might see a tolerable lull during the summer, but people should start thinking about fall and winter .

    I know exactly what you mean, I talk to my family in NY and they think I'm insane for going to work every day. On the other hand, some people around here are convinced this is a slow moving nuclear holocaust. You get letters to the local paper admonishing people out for a walk to wear masks and to stop being selfish, etc.

    The problem is nobody knows what the fuck they're talking about. I'm not a scientist and you can't trust me to interpret data properly if I need to count beyond my toes.There has needed to be a coordinated, coherent response or plan and despite spending three fucking trillion dollars we don't have anything close to it and every policy has been completely weaponized politically, so nobody trusts anybody. We're all just winging it.

    100%. If there is no profit in the solution, we won’t see it.

    Well said. I do think there was a more coordinated plan than you think though. It just wasn't communicated because Trump thought it was more necessary in his press conferences to have videos made on his China restrictions and fight with the media. The media didn't make it easy on him, but the President should be able to rise about the bullshit and just act Presidential for two months and stick to outlining the plan, but he just can't.

    The 14 day declining cases, and four phases of opening was the plan. But the governors have decided to do whatever the fuck they want whike Trump keeps cheering on the people to fight back and organize against the government trying to deploy the guidelines he and the CDC put together.

    It's such a massive clusterfuck that we're all pretty much on our own.

    You have to understand though, chaos is Trump's preferred business model. I know someone who met him once and he confided his business strategy is to make the other party think he's completely crazy and unpredictable. People will concede all kinds of things to him just to get away and cut their losses.

    That and his investments in lawyers to screw you over in court if you go against him. And his base wonders why the "elites" hate him, he ripped a bunch of them off back in the day.

    It’s more than that. There’s all kinds of ruthless business people who’ll fuck over their own mother if it’s in their interest. But most successful business people place at least some value on predictability and certainty.

    Trump is different in that there are no accepted rules or bounds when you’re dealing with him. Anything goes and nothing matters, and after enough exposure to hurricanes you’ll pay anything for some calm.

    Here's my C0VID-19 story for the day. I am officially so fucking sick of this shit. I just came from getting my antibody test, I should know by Tuesday. The reason I got tested is because I'm sure that I had Coronavirus in Dec. or Jan. I had the flu twice in a row bang bang. I have an uncommon blood type and I want to donate if I'm positive for antibodies in case someone should need it.

    So after I pull out of the lab parking lot I drive down the road to get gas. No fewer than five fucking motherfuckers cut/kept cutting in front of me and I had been waiting for 5 minutes. Every time I would try to go to a new pump, another cocksucker would pull in after they saw me sitting there first and would cut me off and start pumping. Don't say I should have just stayed where I was because I had already fucking tried that.

    When I finally was able to finagle in front of a pump of course I was on the wrong side, so I told the guy who just pulled in - I rolled down my fucking window - and I said everyone keeps cutting in front of me can you please just wait I need to turn around. He goes okay.

    I pull forward to turn around and the cock sucker takes my spot. I lost my mind. I go to pull in to yet another open spot and another cocksucker pulls in who also saw that I was there first. That was cocksucker number 5. So I got out of the car and I started yelling at cocksucker number 4 and he goes oh, I thought you told me that I could go in front of you and I told him he was full of it, which he was. No fucking shame whatsoever.

    Cocksucker number 5 goes look you fucking bitch you don't own the gas station and I said I did not curse at you, and I am not yelling at you, but you also know that you cut me off so it's best if you don't involve yourself. He continues cursing at me and it's escalating. I said I don't know why you're cursing at me when I'm not cursing at you and you're getting gas aren't you? Still with the fucking bitch blah blah blah so I said yeah also getting gas at my expense while we're at it, correct?

    He shuts up for 2 seconds and I pull up next to him now because I had to pull around. I had to get out of the car first and tell the person next in line please, don't you dare pull in front of me and cut me off, too (they witnessed the whole thing). I start pumping and the guy who was calling me a fucking bitch is still mumbling under his breath that I think I own the world and I said you know what? This isn't worth my time but I'm going to say it, anyway. Everybody was nice to each other after 9/11. COVID-19? Not so much. I just came back from getting an antibody test and if I'm positive for antibodies I'm going to donate blood. Hopefully you'll never get sick, but if you do, wouldn't that be hilarious if you got this fucking bitches blood and it saved your life. A cardinal rule in New York is that you do not cut people off and you know what you did. He finally shut the fuck up.

    Fuck this shit already, I am done.

    EDIT & P.S.: This is the second time that I've had a verbal altercation at this gas station. It's probably because it's one of the cheapest ones around. Fucking discourteous fucking animals. I hate when things like this happen, because it makes me hate humanity so much that I get upset and I stay that way for a couple of hours. Right now I wish I could go back to the lab and tell him them to pour my blood sample down the fucking sink. They close at 4:00. TOO BAD.

    I just hope at the end of the day everyone realizes, all of our politicians have fucked us. They don't give a shit about anything other than power, control, fame, and authority.

    This isn't even about Corona, this has been ongoing for years and years but I think Corona made it more clear than ever that whatever side you are on, it's all lies, it's all theatre, the government is not there for you, only themselves, to keep themselves in power, so we aren't in power and they will say whatever they have to say to keep it that way.

    How can democratics politicians support policies that are giving more strength and power to billionaires and big corporations? Why are mom and pop shops forced to be closed while big businnesses like Amazon eat them all up? Why are Republicans supporting mass spending bills when they have claimed for years that they are against it? Why are they pushing socialist policies along with the Democrats?

    The hypocrisy and lies are more evident than ever before.
