As we enter into the final week of May, we are going into the last week (supposedly) of reopenings. Now as we've also pointed out, most of these reopenings are completely fake; with the various scumbags in power only allowing partial and conditional activities. The Ameroboobs aren't questioning this any more than they questioned the original closures.
The Bolsheviks and the Mad Scientists advising them spout about maintaining 'social distancing' of at least 6 feet. Has anybody heard even one reason ever given as to why 6 feet distances make any difference? Why not 3 feet, or 10 feet? Let's see what the CDC has to say:
"COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning how it spreads. The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to mainly spread from close contact (i.e., within about 6 feet) with a person who is currently sick with COVID-19."
In other words, these jokers have no idea how it actually spreads; and 6 feet is just an arbitrary number. It should be noted that when the COVID was first discovered in bats, it was being transmitted to pigs in the Chinese Agricultural collectives. Dr. Fauci, among other Americans helped research its properties at the Wuhan Laboratory. They concluded then that the virus posed no threat of transmission to humans. The hog farmers in China with infected herds never came down with the disease. What's obvious is that this virus mutated in some way after 2018.
"The virus likely spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory infections spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs." the CDC explains. Which also explains the hysteria about wearing masks---which only a few weeks ago weren't recommended by the CDC.
Now the Social Engineers are not only requiring distancing, but mask-wearing as well. It's interesting that there are no recommendations whatsoever about the types of masks employed. During the outbreak of H1N1, the National Center for Health Research, wrote the following:
"Facemasks, which refer to disposable masks like the ones health workers occasionally wear, are designed to block large particle droplets, splashes, and sprays from reaching the wearer’s mouth and nose. They are intended to be used once (for whatever period of time) and then discarded. Facemasks do not form a tight seal around the nose and mouth and so they can’t protect you from very small particles in the air transmitted by coughs or sneezes (such as virus particles that can be breathed in by the user)."
In other words, most of the masks people are currently sporting in public are completely useless. What about the vaunted N-95 masks?
"Unlike facemasks, respirators form a tight seal to the face. Respirators typically refer to CDC-certified N95 or higher filtering face pieces (meaning that they filter out 95% of airborne particles). They are primarily manufactured for use in construction and industrial jobs that expose workers to dust and small airborne particles. In order for respirators to be effective, they must be fitted properly according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. Respirators are harder than facemasks to breathe through for extended periods of time and can cause skin irritation. CDC guidelines do not suggest respirators for children or people with facial hair."
These are little better since (1) not all of them are OSHA-certified or are worn improperly; and (2) they aren't intended for long-term use. Speaking from experience here, I can point out that they are about as comfortable as military gas-masks, feel like you're trying to breathe through a cheesecloth after just a few hours, and absolute torture in hot weather. They're even worse outside in the rain.
The same political and academic charlatans who are pushing this nonsense are the same crowd who've been telling us that there are no gender differences but all men are potential rapists. They tell us that Global Warming is man-made; but can't predict the path of an ordinary windstorm. They told us that ISIS would be capable of attacking the US unless we overthrew the people who were actually fighting them. They've told us that gun control would stop mass shootings; that the 21-drinking age would stop DUI fatalities; that residual tobacco smoke is deadly but marijuana is harmless. All we have to do as good citizens is to pay our taxes, put up with 'inconveniences' and keep our mouths shut---because by sacrificing our liberties now we're securing an earthy paradise for our great-great grandchildren.
When will Americans stop believing these absurdities? All of this codswallop about the post-COVID society "changing our lives forever" is such an obvious smokescreen for ulterior motives that even a few moments of serious thought should dispel it. The Mad Scientists tell us that we can't return to ''fully normal" until a vaccine is discovered (which of course will be mandatory). They also have been blathering about a potential second outbreak of a stronger version and claim some disease among the children is a mutation of COVID-19.
While I'm not an anti-vaxxer, even Common Sense should tell anybody that an immunization for a virus that they can't define, don't know how is spread, and is potentially highly mutable either will not work at all or will cause a pandemic itself. The reason that vaccinations work against Polio, Smallpox, Measles, etc., is because these viruses have static properties which scientists have learned how to counter. Flu shots are not 100% effective because Influenza can mutate---although not radically. COVID-19 is apparently radically mutable---meaning that it can change form if met with antibodies. The earlier tests run by Dr. Fauci and his Chinese friends on the infected swine seem to confirm this thesis, however.
Speaking for myself, though, I doubt that a vaccine will be produced---and even if we get one it will only be a harmless placebo. The only protection it will actually provide is against political, social, and economic ostracism.
And that has been part of the scheme all along. Pundits are already planning for reshaping the Post-COVID World. The fact is that there is no 'Post-COVID World'. Just ask yourself---now that Bin Laden and Caliph Baghdadi are dead and Al-Qaeda and ISIS have been reduced to about the size of street gangs---how many temporary post 9/11 measures have been rescinded?
But in Postmodern America, where the mantra is "never let a good crisis go to waste," many will care as little about this as they did about 9/11. The Smart Boys and the Wise Guys know that nowadays principles are for suckers and that COVID restrictions equal a ground-floor opportunity. New Normals might bring poverty and slavery for most of us, but the guys who know how to work the system and make themselves acceptable to the Elites go laughing all the way to the bank.
