    This is very much true for the EU. I do not expect the COVID crisis in the EU to be over before September and the German elections.

    Why take the time to understand something you won't suffer from? They have no real skin in the game. They do well when we do well. They do better when we suffer.

    Dr Ryan Cole, Covid & Children, Possibility of Mandatory Vaccine - YouTube

    This guy does a good job explaining why we shouldn’t be encouraging everyone to her the “vaccine” and especially why we shouldn’t be giving it to our kids

    Today I saw a lone man three stories up on on a window cleaning scaffold wearing a cloth mask.

    The process of slowly going insane continues.

How "diverse" is the Chinese People's Liberation Army? The Russian Armed Forces?

    Army Combat Fitness Disaster: Units Refusing to Take Test, Medics Bailing


    Navy Recruiting Could See Changes Following Diversity Listening Sessions - USNI News

    The U.S. Army has a readiness problem the likes of which it has not seen since the draft, and one which threatens to undermine the entire institution. This problem is called the Army Combat Fitness Test. The ACFT was designed to improve the physical fitness levels of soldiers. Because it was so poorly planned, however, 84% of women failed it straightaway, and data is scarce as to whether things have improved.
    Oh, I see. The problem is the test, not that they are inadequately trained to meet the standards that are fully possible for women to meet. They should be meeting the exact same standards as the men anyway. If a physical function is needed to be performed, then every soldier should be capable of it or ejected.

    Navy Destroyer Hopper's [First Female] Commanding Officer Fired Over Morale Problems
    Navy Destroyer Hopper's Commanding Officer Fired Over Morale Problems | Military.com


    Cmdr. Kathryn Dawley was relieved by Capt. Kenneth Athans, Destroyer Squadron 31's commodore, over a "loss of confidence in her leadership," Navy officials announced Wednesday. An official familiar with the circumstances said the decision was based on Dawley's overall performance in "this critical leadership billet."


    "Morale of the crew played a large factor in the decision to remove her from command," the official said.

    ...
    Dawley is Hopper's second commanding officer to be relieved in the last three years. In 2018, the ship's commanding officer was removed from his position over allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a junior sailor.
    Vast majority of men AND women do not want to serve under a woman. It's another one of Rip's "lies agreed upon" where we pretend this isn't so and that the reasons have nothing to do with biology.

    "Diversity" is not really working out. Second officer was a man and he presumably did wrong, but the point is if the "junior sailor" weren't a woman, which they didn't say but it 99.9% probably was, there'd be no issue. It plays out exactly as thinking people said it would. It affects the ability for them to perform their duties. This is life and death, not some luxury where we can afford some inefficiency to get tingly good feelings about "fairness," whatever that is.

    This is just in time for:

    Then maybe the government should stop giving training that encourages it in non-whites and passing anti-white unconstitutional laws that cause whites to become racist in self defense.

    The fatal flaw is in treating sexism the same as racism. Follow the science.

    I freely admit to being a wimp for waiting so long, but today I went to the grocery store without wearing my mask. God, it was liberating.

    I'm in Arizona, so I'm in one of the more free and open states. I did see three other people (out of several dozen) who were not wearing masks, interestingly all women, two of them probably in their 70's (I'm 60). No one gave me the stink eye or any hassles. So, I'm done.
