    IPhone. Gilead was the author. You should listen to the guy I linked too though, it might dispel some of your weak ideas regarding Trump in this whole mess.

    This is a nice piece on the UK: The Most Frightened Nation | City Journal

    According to an Ipsos MORI poll conducted in July, an impressive 27 percent of Britons want to impose a government-mandated nationwide curfew of 10 PM—not then in force—“until the pandemic was under control worldwide,” which might be years from now. A not-inconsiderable 19 percent would impose such a curfew “permanently, regardless of the risk from Covid-19.” Presumably, these are people who don’t get out much. While 64 percent want Britain’s mask mandate in shops and on public transport to remain a legal requirement for the duration of the global pandemic, an astounding 51 percent want to be masked by law, forever.

    There’s more: some 35 percent want to confine any Briton who returns from a foreign country, vaccinated or not, to a ten-day home quarantine—permanently, Covid or no Covid. A full 46 percent would require a vaccine passport in order to travel abroad—permanently, Covid or no Covid. So young people today would still be flashing that QR code on whatever passes for smartphones in 2095, though they might have trouble displaying the device to a flight attendant while bracing on their walkers. Likewise, the 36 percent who want to be required to check in at pubs and restaurants with a National Health Service contact-tracing app forever. A goodly 34 percent want social distancing in “theatres, pubs and sports grounds,” regardless of any risk of Covid, forever. A truly astonishing 26 percent of Britons would summarily close all casinos and nightclubs forever. Are these just a bunch of fogies who don’t go clubbing anyway? No. In the 16-to-24 age bracket, the proportion of Brits who want to convert Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London’s Soho into a community lending library, even after Covid is a distant memory, soars to a staggering 40 percent.

    Far from yearning for their historic liberties as “free-born Englishmen,” eight out of ten of the British, according to a Southbank/Kingston University survey, were “anxious” about lifting any of their benevolent government’s copious pandemic restrictions. I’m not sure that you can call it Stockholm syndrome when captives don’t fall in love with their captors but with the state of captivity itself.
    Snitching on your neighbors for violating lockdown measures has been actively encouraged. The majority of English police forces established online forms to report lockdown breaches. Only three days into the first lockdown, the Northamptonshire force alone had received “dozens and dozens” of public reports about, for instance, neighbors who had been out for a second run in one day (more “guidance,” not law). By early April 2020, a full 11 percent of Derbyshire’s 2,300 daily calls were to rat out lockdown flouters. Last autumn, Johnson encouraged local councils to hire citizen “Covid marshals” to bully and harass the noncompliant. (One of Google’s “related searches” when I input “reports on lockdown breaches U.K.” runs “do you get a reward for reporting Covid breaches.”) In a January 2021 YouGov poll, 91 percent of Britons claimed that they would keep following the rules, but 56 percent did not believe that other people would. Sanctimony plus faultfinding equals a formula for “curtain twitchers” on a scale that would make the Stasi proud.

The guy left Comedy Central with 50 million on the table over bullshit, got cancelled for a decade and has an intelligent yet hilarious perspective on that world's bullshit. Good stuff.
    I just finished it and I really enjoyed it. I have always been a DC fan, I particularly liked this one. For me it was a little more darkÖ the comical pretzel he puts the me2 movement in was incredible and probably went over half the crowds head. Heís great, I donít know how everyone will take it, but I particularly loved it and felt he hit every nail he could. Laughter, emotion, wit, and good deliveries.

    Texas:
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott bans any COVID-19 vaccine mandates | The Texas Tribune
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday issued another executive order cracking down on COVID-19 vaccine mandates ó this time banning any entity in Texas, including private businesses, from requiring vaccinations for employees or customers
    California:
    California moves toward ban on gas lawn mowers and leaf blowers - Los Angeles Times
    California will outlaw the sale of new gas-powered lawn mowers, leaf blowers and chain saws
    It's all collapsing baby! Hillarious this happens the day after my resignation. Fuck them though, landed a contracting gig making more money and working less hours. You now have ZERO reason to comply if you live in Texas. Abbott should keep pushing every conservative mandate possible, overwhelm these fucking clowns and give them a taste of their own medicine.

    Also selling my battery powered trimmer for a gas trimmer to spite the commie assholes.

    Tucker on the professional class saying no.

    Morale is high and rising. At this point I want my company to give me the mandate just so I can tell them to fuck off. In fact, I will be disappointed if they don't. Especially after teasing me so coyly.

    -Raiders Coach Resigns After Leaked Emails Show He Called Joe Biden a “Nervous Clueless Pussy”

    If you resign over this, it's pretty obvious who the "nervous clueless pussy" is. What a pathetic coward.

    Although, I suspect this is some kind of surrender theater. He's probably being paid to resign. Just another propaganda cost. Probably a drop in the bucket compared to the overall budget.

    The Power of Noncompliance: Vaccine Mandates Awaken Calls for Freedom

    A specter is haunting America—the specter of freedom.

    How else to explain the weekly chants from hundreds of thousands of sports fans, packing into football stadiums and other large venues the way real American used to do in the days Before Fauci, chanting an obscene suggestion to the current resident of the White House.

    Eleven months ago, gas prices were low, and the United States was energy independent. Unemployment was also low, and minorities had never fared better in the job market. The southern border was relatively secure, the useless war in Afghanistan was bumping along, enriching the Pentagon but not troubling anybody overmuch, and the future looked bright.

    Then came the highly questionable election of 2020, one rendered nearly meaningless by last-minute, COVID-driven, illegal changes in state election laws that made a mockery of our democratic traditions and procedures in the name of a chimerical “safety” from a form of the flu. And presto—Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., who’d been in Washington for more than half a century, was suddenly president of the United States.

    Today, the economy is in chaos, supply chains have been disrupted, inflation is soaring, race relations are poisonous, crime including murder is way up, the energy business is assaulted on all fronts even as the industrialized nations face the prospect of a winter without reliable power, and China is rattling its plastic sabers.

    And yet the befuddled Biden’s principal concern is forcing a thoroughly anti-American, unconstitutional series of vaccination “mandates” on the American work force that has—thankfully—finally brought the country to its boiling point.

    Let’s go, Brandon!

    In Florida, Southwest Airlines has had to cancel hundreds of flights, ostensibly because of the weather (in mild October?) but more than likely because its pilots are staging a sickout in defiance of their company’s buckling to administration pressure. The pilot’s union has already gone to court to block the mandate, which applies to private companies doing business with the feds, and there have also been reports of a slowdown by FAA air-traffic controllers in Jacksonville as well.

    Biden’s misbegotten mandate also applies to American troops, who must be inoculated against the Chinese-manufactured, Fauci-funded virus in stages over the next month or so—but so far hundreds of thousands of servicemen, including members of elite units, have refused.

    Meanwhile, states like New York are firing hospital workers who decline to submit to replacement governor Kathy Hochul’s September vaccination order, further disrupting an already overstressed medical system.

    Other resistance has developed among Amtrak workers, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which will refuse to enforce the mandate, and even some NBA stars. This week, a federal appeals court agreed with 16 student athletes at Western Michigan University who’ve challenged the school’s vaccine mandate on religious grounds, and upheld a lower court ruling than enjoined the university.

    Great news. I was sure this was going to happen. The global labor market has been so
    fucked due to government interventions, it is actually providing opportunities to people.
