    Coach, may I respectfully ask why I've been censored here? This is one of the few places I feel there are people I can trust, having followed for the past 8 years...

    I haven't spoken out in a long while, because apparently no one wants to listen to or answer the hard questions about WTF is going on in our country for many years.

    Now the plandemic has some people waking up, but I've been living with this for many years, having realized long ago something nefarious is under way, and any discussion gets a conspiracy theorist label.

    The thing about the airplane flying through the wall? You haven't been censored, you just had a pointless post deleted, as most everybody else has too. Won't be the last time.

    Couple thoughts. Nicholas Christakis has a theory that as we do things we get genetically adapted to them. Like drinking milk. As humans domesticated animals and had dairy as a new food source, those who adapted to the later-in-life-lactose had an advantage so that over time, we are now mostly lactose tolerant even as adults. He has other examples, like the sea nomads in the south Pacific- but I digress. My point is that if this is true, and I can see how it can be, then the fact is that as time passes and we're mostly a species of city sardines who bend to the will of politicians then we will lose the genetic adaptations for individuality. Those who can tolerate what we think of as New York life, or London, will have an advantage that will forces changes in humans as a group. In the talk I saw, he mentioned 2000 years. If that's the case, that could be what's going on. It feels like we are gradually losing our balls, as a group. Becoming too domesticated. Those of us who don't think like that look around at the others and wonder how that gap happened. How are they tolerating this shit? Idk about ya'll but I sometimes feel like I am looking at a separate species of people. Maybe we are in a way. I think I'm coming to believe that the over-domestication of people (especially men, because of their obvious physical advantages) is a serious survival issue.

    Thought 2: I see a lot of people celebrating that this whole time we've been in masks the actual flu death and case rate has plummeted. Assuming that's true, isn't this a bad thing? If we're protecting ourselves for long periods of time via mask, social distancing, all the rest are we not setting ourselves up for an actual pandemic? My understanding is that the thing we know as seasonal flu is really the same strain types (terminology?) that caused the Spanish Flu situation. We just don't experience it like we did back then because of the herd immunity thing. It's out there, we just don't die in large numbers anymore. So while all the leftists are celebrating this lack of exposure (or in fairness, the lack of death associated with it) and saying it in terms of "hey we should keep this mask thing going" are we not actively weakening ourselves? Am I wrong? Does it not work that way? Is this something those in power know and are intending to do? I feel like I need to go out and roll in some mud just to be sure I get some germs, lol. (I'm kidding, I'm terrible about eating the tomatoes and berries while I'm picking them so I'm sure I've got plenty of germs.)

    There's a lot on that guy's site that's worth a read. I'm glad ya'll posted some stuff from there, I didn't know about it till I saw it here.

    "Is the completed work in that area what the Chinese "gave" us complete with that part of the work already done? That would explain how it happened that quickly, wouldn't it? I'd sure like to understand how someone -- anyone -- does that sort of work complete with the lab verification in cell cultures and animals, reachig those conclusions in days." This fills in a lot of gaps.

    Not sure if I can like this more, though probably not!

    I think genetic adaptation takes longer than 2000yrs. White men with flowing hair and beards still look like Jesus.

    In any case, while your concerns have merit, you are at risk for being the pot calling the kettle black, or whatever you’re allowed to say these days.

    Fear porn: https://www.washingtonpost.com/healt...pitalizations/

    Such absolute bullshit, but that never stops the state media. An "increase in severe cases" is the reason to be very afraid. What is the increase? Numbers? Deaths? Christ Almighty, this is an industry: making stupid people afraid.

    Yesterday my 15 y.o. daughter received a letter from the Indiana Department of Health, encouraging her to get the vaccine. The envelope and letter were addressed to her, but the letter "spoke" to me, i.e. "Dear Parent,". I find this fishy, as if they are trying to bypass the parent and appeal directly to a minor, while covering liabilities by using language directed at me. Obviously they intend for her to open the letter first, and read it first.

    Perhaps I should sue their candy covid asses, own the dept of health, and use my newfound powers to proselytize NE Indiana with barbell training.

    More likely, I'll forward this concern to my congressman, Jim Banks. He seems to be the combative type.

    I actually sincerely appreciate that some of mine never made it. Sometimes I post when I'm taking a break. Sometimes, though, I might be into my cups... and pretty pissed off.

    If anyone thinks I'm smart... they could be swiftly disillusioned.
