However the CV-19 event seems to have derailed the continuing process of full integration of a united Europe with no boarders. According to Bible prophecy the EU is supposed to be the the last world power made up of 10 states, however Britain was never meant to be part of that union hence Brexit. I think citizens of some of the member states want to depart the EU also, but German money is keeping some of the more inefficient states afloat therefore they are stuck in the union. According to this prophecy about the EU it will be like the old Roman Empire with one head of state, something like Napoleon or Hitler who tried but failed to restart the old Roman Empire. It is in the interest of the EU or who ever controls it to have a dysfunctional US so that the EU can finally dominate the world. I am sure the EU were delighted when Biden became president.

    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.
    Yet, had someone looked at you askance (Hurlingism), you would put it back on?

    It's somewhat amazing that you like O'Brian's books and yet can't seem to have such opprobrium over the language used in them.

    Because this is an internet forum about politics and current events, not a place to impress us with your grasp of English literary vocabulary and cuteness, which you seem compelled to do EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU POST.

    My point to RJP was that he hasn't actually had to wear the mask in AZ. I have never had one on, he has chosen to, and I was wondering why.

    It's a helluva process, stomping out the individual's will. The Brits are getting very good at this: Report: Brits At Pubs Will Have To Register On Government Tracking App, Hand Over Phones – Summit News

    No, I really don't think I would have. I'd like to think that I wouldn't anyway. I've reached that (long overdue) point.

    While AZ never had a state-wide mask mandate, Maricopa County, where I live, did. I've worn a mask mostly so I could see my son perform with his high school marching and concert bands. I have gone to various parties (4th of July, Christmas, New Year's, Super Bowl, etc.) where no one in attendance, including my wife and I, was wearing a mask. We have other friends we haven't seen in over a year because they are terrified to leave the house and mingle with other people. This includes a few who actually had the virus and recovered with no ill effect. As I said, I'm done with that.

    And you might be happy to hear that I fully intended to enter the USAPL Arizona State Championships in May until I heard you excoriate the federation in one of your podcasts, both for its mask policy and just general powerlifting stupidity. So, even though the current USAPL AZ state records for squat and deadlift in my age/weight class are literally my warmups, I've decided to wait until Santana has another meet and compete there instead (as I have in the past).

    Racial diversity in the military is fine because it doesn’t defy human nature, black, white, Mexican, whatever will have some minor cultural differences but other than that they all have the same biological urges.

    And one of if not the strongest urge at the age of most military age people is sexual.
    Put Young fit men and women together and they start fooling around, imagine that LOL.

    As a country we have been pursuing this ridiculous “men and women are not different” for so long it’s become laughable.

    The weird part is everyone knows it’s bullshit yet we all pretend the emperor has no clothes.

    I was in the First Cav when Nixon was president and it’s was enough of a clusterfuck without women in the mix. I really wonder how they do as well as they do.

    Women are great they can do many things better than men but “breaking things and killing people” isn’t one of them
