I like when cult members pretend that we had a vacation and it wasn't just your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness being crushed by totalitarian philanthropaths bent on contorting the world to their own dystopian vision by deploying coercion tactics designed for torturing prisoners of war.

I like it when dipshits think a lockdown stopped a virus anywhere. Thats cute.

Yeah, just no take out for 3 months. No one had their livelihoods ruined or anything. Say "I'm part of the laptop class" without saying it.

Tell that to my daughter who was in kindergarten at the time. She came home from school one Friday in March of 2020 and didn’t get to see the inside of a classroom again until the Fall of 2021. Definitely wasn’t due to any sort of lockdowns, though.

Lord forgive me for the insatiable hatred I have for these people.

Or as a somewhat wealthy acquaintance recently said “ well, it ( the lockdown) really wasn’t that bad”.... after I stopped my tongue from hemorrhaging , I responded “ easy for you when your Country Club in your gated community delivers dinner to you.” This is a person who remains double masked in public. Princeton graduate.

As the vaccinators start to gloss over their many sins, ask for forgiveness and amnesty, we must remember that all over the world, anyone who dared raise a finger in protest and/or did not comply was threatened, fined, imprisoned, harassed etc.

Here is my definition of "lockdown":

Any nonzero measure of government-imposed or government-enabled restriction on economic activity beyond what was present in AD 2019.

(Not that 2019 represents an ideal scenario for economic freedom, only that it presents a convenient contrast to 2020 and beyond)

Masks = lockdowns

Mass testing = lockdowns

All part and parcel of the same demonic possession.

To REALLY stop and for lockdowns to really work this is what would need to happen (my point is going to show it's impossible):

Everyone would have to isolate for like 90 days. NO essential workers. So, no food delivery, no medical supplies, no fuel deliveries, no grocery shopping. No mail. I mean, TRUE isolation. True lockdown. How does that even work? It's impossible. What about the sick people.

This also isn't possible because police still need to work, firemen, Emergency medical services...plus there are some things that just can't be left alone (like a power grid, or nuclear plants, or military facilities). People HAVE To eat. When things break (like a sewage pipe) humans have to go out and repair them. Or a power outage. Or your fridge breaks and all your food goes bad. True lockdown isolation to stop a respiratory virus is just impossible if one thinks through it.

People would end up starving and going insane. The mental illness just from the "lockdowns" we had was terrible.

Are all the people who want to commit crimes going to stop? Nope. So you have to have some sort of security presence. Public or private.

Even then, the compliance of this would not work. Plus, EVEN if all of these things were to still happen I doubt that a "lockdown" would stop it. Maybe slow it down with a huge interest charge on the back end. I'm no expert, but it seemed like locking down just delayed stuff from happening. There is of course a seasonality effect with Covid, but now people are getting sick because they have immune deficiencies.

People can't reduce things to first principles and see the outcome of what a true lockdown would be, and that is total chaos. It is unrealistic and impossible.

I never understood why public drinking fountains were turned off, closed off or taped off in buildings. No one actually knew why. Some thought that it was because people would be touching the lever and thus spread the virus. I replied that no one is doing anything about the door handle to the building where the drinking fountain is taped off. Why one, but not the other?

I occasionally judge outdoor only dog events. I was one of the few judges of this type that was willing to travel during the height of the pandemic. The club was paranoid about me flying so I agreed to drive and visited friends and did some other dog related events along the way since WA had a "rule" about being in the state for 10 days about something so that was how I conformed to WA's ridiculous rules. The club freaked out about my road trip and insisted that I get a covid test before judging. The county I was judging in had free drive thru covid testing at the fairgrounds if you lived or worked in the county. I told them that I had a temporary job at the local that I was judging at as I had out of state drivers license and vehicle plates. It was a warm day so as I was waiting for the hour in my vehicle, I had the windows open. I was rudely told to keep them closed while I was siting in my vehicle in full sun. They had a couple of porta potties by the parking area that I watched people use. The guy who was directing traffic and making everyone mask up and have windows closed watched the people use the facilities. There was no rush to spray disinfectant between uses. There was occasionally a person waiting outside to use the facilities and there was no screaming for the person to remain in their vehicle until one was free. So much discord and non logic surrounding what was acceptable and what wasn't.

Oh, the building that we drove thru to get the test? It was the Sheep Barn. They had to take down the sign as apparently there were complaints about lining up to drive thru the sheep barn to get tested was too much for some people.

Well, technically it wasn't a lockdown, but it sure was heavy-handed in what businesses were allowed to stay open vs those forced to close, rules made for those who wanted to shop, discrimination against anyone with legitimate medical issues preventing them from wearing a mask, attempted discrimination against the average person for not wanting to take part in a medical experiment, sending police to gatherings with more than the "allowed" number of people, and so on.

Yes, we were not forcibly detained or imprisoned in our houses as happened in some other countries, but the effects on our society as a whole are still pretty bad.

Crawl inside the mind of this guy and spend a few minutes absorbing the world like he does. It isn't pretty.

Yeah, it was just take out and Tiger King for a few months...

Look, toots, here's my story: My son was in the ICU for a week. Was I able to visit him, be by his side in his moment of need? NO, no I was not allowed to be there. I sat by the phone, hoping not to get that phone call that every parent dreads, hoping to God he is getting the attention he needs from an overstretch hospital staff. All day and night, my stomach churning in grief and angst, just waiting and waiting, biting my tongue with all my teeth.

So, spare me the revisionist history "Watto_Allen" or whoever the F**k you are. I will never, ever, EVER forgive or forget. You can kiss my fluffy ass, covidians.

Don't fall for the gaslight beyond calling this trog out for being a tweet grifter, nothing more.

Is Lockdown Denial a thing now? I’m still waiting for delivery of my new “I support nuclear war in Ukraine!” curtains.

It’s so hard to keep up with the latest fashions!

Leftist ideas never been because they've never been tried. Granted, lots of people claim they've tried Leftist ideas & every Leftist supported all of these previous attempts, but none of these attempts were really attempts because everyone the Leftists ever supported tricked them in some way. Don't worry, though, this time they're right!
