The truth about covid is trying hard to get out... Now Newsweek has an article about deaths "with covid" vs "from covid"

" Even if the true death toll is closer to 60,000 than 200,000, this pandemic is a big deal. But we need some perspective. During the 2017-18 flu season, 61,000 Americans died from the flu."

This one will be memory-holed soon too I expect because it'll cause "misleading and dangerous" memes about the 'rona.

Dutch Horeca (all bars, restaurants, etc) announces they had enough of the random lockdowns by our government. From January 17th they will all open again, government mandated lockdowns or not.

The health Minister simply said it probably would be much longer after the projected half of January. In the meantime Dutch RIVM (like CDC) announced it could take up to March.

Guess what's in March? Elections.

Horeca zegt vertrouwen op in kabinet: 'Wij gaan 17 januari weer open'

I gotta believe the Saracens are laughing their asses off that Western males (they think are Xtian, but are really secular humanist) are covering their faces like Saracen women.

@robh @vandys it is VERY troubling. People actually do crave subjugation and that frightens me, a lot

It looks as if Pennsylvania has been tossed into the chaos of an uncostitutional elction decision by the state court and the legislature's decision for choosing electors has been decoupled from the popular vote.


Senators Markey and Blumenthal have introduced a bill for a National Mask Law.

“The Government has an interest in encouraging the use of face coverings in public and each place of business,”

These assholes know no limits.

Forget the topic for a second, The Sun newspaper's words just trumped whatever I was looking up....

"Why did he get a Chairman Mao tattoo?"

-----------That's what you call him?

"On Tyson's right bicep, is a tattoo of Chinese communist revolutionary, Mao Zedong."

---------He was a what?

What millennial who should be working at Starbucks wrote this?

Election is not over yet

"Pennsylvania trial court rules the 2020 election was likely unconstitutional in Pennsylvania, and that gives state legislators power to choose electors."

When the punishment is a fine, it's just a tax poor people can't afford to pay.

Windsor, Ont mayor orders "Zero Tolerance", then breaks covid rules ... says he'll voluntarily pay the fine as a chartiable donation after calling it an "unfortunate error" that he went to dinner with his friends.

How to understand Ontario's confusing colour-coded system

Update: This story was updated to reflect changes to colour-coded zones, effective as of November 30😂

The colour-coded framework includes five different zones: Prevent-Green, Protect-Yellow, Restrict-Orange, Control-Red, and Lockdown-Grey.

The government recently announced that it would be extending the orders intended to combat COVID-19 until at least December 21.

@OVDB @robh @Boolysteed

Last time I rode the 'hound they had this weird rent-a-cop brutal ritual to enter the "protected" area. It was like airline security, except less professional. I love the lower-mid-class-and-below people who ride, but there's no WAY it's a growth industry.
