She sucks. She tweeted that the disease was not deadly for the “vast majority of responsible Americans”. The people at risk have always been either already very elderly and sick or have been let down by a medical community practicing non early intervention malpractice. Not irresponsible. But she needs to continue to gin up an enemy for selfish hysterical political reasons.

"Irresponsible" is just a euphemism for "uncooperative or non-compliant". If they actually cared about people they wouldn't have demonized or prevented people from learning about and accessing effective, early treatment protocols. It's not a genuine awakening to the bigger issues.

As the saying goes.."A snake that slithers back into a hole is still a snake."

Notice this horrible woman uses "responsible" Americans, meaning those who got the jab. I consider maintaining my long-term health by not getting the experimental jab pretty darn responsible, thank you very much.

If they are retreating, we must continue to advance. We can never let our guard down as each apparent concession is only an “occasional indulgence” from Biderman’s Chart of Coercion (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/letter-to-a-tyrant) and a pit stop on the way to “demonstrating omnipotence.”

And I am smitten with polka-dot baby zebra!! 😻😻😻 (tennis instructor 😹😹😹)

They are trying to get us to focus on hospitalizations but have no intention of distinguishing between hospitalizations FROM covid and hospitalizations WITH incidental covid.

That is their game.

They know omicron is highly contagious and the tests highly sensitive so they are counting on rising prevalence in the community to show up incidentally in a rising proportion of all cause hospitalizations.

They are just pausing to pull a little more air into their lungs before screaming "PANIC!!".

I hope the next thing they force us to do is something I can deal with, for instance do 30 minutes exercise a day. But then I realize I could not stand such an imposition either.

Sometimes I would like to eat the blue pill, but that is not really true. I want to fight.

People that do what they are told seem happier, they are not sick of this madness. But honestly, I cannot be like them. I do not know why, and it hurts. Lots of headaches and bad nights.

What utter fools are the individuals cited in this article. When their time comes may it be slow, painful, degrading, and alone. They were the cheerleaders of tyranny and an authoritarian approach to this virus. They must pay.

I'm like a feral cat. Ungovernable. Thanks for your work during this interesting time.

Thank you for the excellent analysis and constant reminders to be ungovernable. The solution is with the culture, not the government.

The ratio on that tweet is glorious.

Fuck these liars and Mandarins. Mock them at every turn.

"Become ungovernable" says it all the best, perhaps the most succinct lesson of the COVID era.

Yes! I've been screaming (albeit mostly at myself lol) for many years when one "side" is pushing something they think is only going to punish the other "side", "Don't you realize that whatever you get implemented in the name of politics will eventually come back on you eventually!?" In the past, it didn't seem like such a big deal, but now... Oh man! People *demanding* mandatory medicine for people's bodies? Seriously? The people demanding this kind of madness just don't seem to (or want to) think down the road a ways like, "what's going to happen when something comes along that you don't want and you are no longer allowed to refuse?" With the way things are with this "vaccine" alone, one can imagine a time when 3 or 4 people out of 5 are either croaking or getting maimed and there will be absolutely no choice (it will be an "acceptable" risk). After all, if it saves just one life...

Great guidance and principles as always. BUT what is it EXACTLY that we Gatos are going to do going forward as individuals in the specific situations we face in our personal lives as the rats like this one start pouring out of the basement? This tweeter means nothing to me. The people who I thought were my friends are a different issue.

In the past with the statists it’s always been two steps “backwards” towards feudalism, and sometimes one step back towards reality, over and over to the point where we are now down to just about nothing. This happened with TSA and Homeland Security. Will you EVER see the end of TSA? Will you ever see the end of the idea, now well established that in certain non-voted on circumstances you have to “show your papers”? Showing you papers is now part of us. It’s a tool in “our” kit, maybe put away for now, but sure to return.

You can’t assume it of just anyone unless they said or did something specific, but some number of your “friends”, when at home alone, considered that maybe you should be starved to death, disqualified from anything at all and or put in a concentration camp? They will deny it, but WE know what happened. What it was like.

If one has been through a divorce there are some parallels here. Can there be a reconciliation? If so, under what terms? Most of the time, one party or the other simply cannot unsee what one has seen about the other party. They didn’t invite you to dinner because you were “unclean”. Is it all better now? Forgive and forget? Will you just walk away and lick you wounds? At this point, there is no next time. There have to be at least three steps back towards our social contract. There have to be consequences for bad behavior.

One place to start, and maybe there is a stack one could point me to where anecdotal evidence...short stories and reflections...are collected about what it was like to live through these times unvaxxed. Seems like it would make a good book to have circulating.

Not so fast my friend! You did notice the subhead on the WaPo headline, did you not? "Let irresponsible Americans face the consequences of the reckless conduct." These losers are not admitting anything. They *still* think they are correct and we are "irresponsible" for not taking Pfizer's magic juice. Maybe there is some other game afoot. Or, maybe a small victory is still a victory?
