There is no end-game. An exit strategy does not exist. A way out of this current oppression has not been considered, let alone set in motion.
It has been a year-and-a-half since Hawaii Governor David Ige started exercising his statutory 60-day emergency order authorization. Nobody seems to care that it just goes on forever without any end in sight. – Advertisement –
A few months ago, the Governor had promised that when Hawaii reached 70% vaccination rate, all restrictions would be terminated. In reality, just the opposite happened. He doubled down along with Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi by tightening the screws with a vaccine mandate that prevents Hawaii residents from living a normal life.
Do you even remember what it was like to live a normal life without having to check on the most current health department restrictions? – Advertisement –
The vaccine mandate which began on September 13th was limited by statute to 60 days which ended on November 11th. But the lack of inquisitiveness of the Hawaii media is surpassed only by that of the Hawaii Restaurant Association which doesn’t know or care when or if they will be able to stop checking vaccination cards or negative COVID-19 tests for dine-in customers.
Calls to several national franchise restaurants here on Oahu were met with different results. One said they would stop checking. Another said they would not. A reputable local establishment said that the mandate will never end.
Nobody has a plan.
They don’t want to put themselves in the spotlight by asking. Everybody prefers to slink in the darkness and let somebody else expose their brashness by inquiring. Or not.
The status quo is easy for those who have neither initiative nor incentive.
Some restaurants have just cut out sit-down-inside dining altogether by preparing all meals in takeout containers and allowing customers to sit outside without having their vaccination status verified. It’s obvious that the profit margin of local establishments is being undermined, but nobody has the guts to challenge this unnecessarily oppressive government.
There is no doubt that the authorities are more concerned about appearance than substance.
If there ever was a health crisis, it is definitely over now. The Governor of Hawaii realized that his presence here in the 50th state was absolutely unneeded when he went on a boondoggle at taxpayer expense to a climate change conference in far away Europe. Somehow, it’s hard to imagine that a 6,898 mile airline flight from Hawaii to Scotland would reduce the global carbon footprint.
By all means, Hawaii is not the worst place on Earth for vaxximania.
Austria, the birthplace of Adolf Hitler, learned nothing from the Third Reich and is now locking down all unvaccinated people. Today there were unconfirmed reports that they may actually start force-vaccinating people there. Vienna was once respected as a center of classical culture. It may soon be best known for those little sausages that you buy in a can in the market.
Canada has stormtroopers marching into Christian churches and expelling worshippers as they lock the doors. Sometimes they even hog-tie pastors in the middle of the highway if they don’t comply with government edicts.
What goes on in China, we will never know because information is locked down just as tightly as are human victims. But, Joe Biden and Xi Jinping are bosom buddies, so what the hey.
The United States of America has been known as a bastion of freedom for a very long time. Hawaii has the reputation of being a tropical paradise. Looks can be deceptive. What you see may actually be a mirage.
The brain drain will continue and intensify as Hawaii refuses to employ common sense. A handful of politicians on the mainland are standing up against the brain-washing of American citizens. You are going to be hard-pressed however here in these islands to find anyone willing to buck the trend and take the flack.
In what universe is class warfare preferable to peace, harmony and tranquility?
Yet our elected leaders here in Hawaii are totally unresponsive. They keep moving the goalposts to accommodate their greed for power. No one has ever held them accountable before, so why would they think the voters would suddenly do an end-run for the touchdown?
As long as we keep trying to barrel right up the middle, we’re going to win even less often than the current U.H. football team.
Ask yourself, where are we going to be at this time next year? When 2020 ended, it was like taking off a shoe that was too tight. But, there is even less anticipation now at the end of 2021 that the future will bring something better in 2022.
Does anybody really doubt that there will be the same worn out politicians playing musical chairs to become our next Hawaii Governor? Will you be surprised when the incumbent Hawaii Senator and two Congressmen get sent back to Washington again?
Nothing really ever changes here. Because nobody wants it to.
You will have no one but yourself to blame if you just sit on your okole and let things happen around you. Think back to a couple of years ago when you made plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas without waiting to see what your fearful leaders were going to deign to permit you to do. Those were personal and family decisions, not for elected officials to determine and impose upon you against your will and contrary to your better judgment.
Those were the days, my friend. We thought they’d never end. But they did. Forever!
The vaccine is not intended to save your life, or even help you. its intent is literally to kill you slowly… not quickly so the numbers are fucked since most deaths have not occurred yet. those are about to start and youre right they will blame a virus not the vaccine when that happens.
A review of the basic sciences for covid on a understandable level, with only root level sources.
The PCR tests (which they call COVID tests) do not detect covid.
They can only detect viral material.
The inventor of the PCR test which these days they call the covid test Kary Mullis warned us long ago that they were using the pcr tests and changing the thresholds and creating false detects to tell the patients they were infected with AIDS.. exact same scam they do with covid. (see the videos below for this and more about Fauci)
The test cannot tell if its a cold sore, AIDS, covid, the flu, pnuemonia or what virus it is. They also lower the threshold of detection so it detect the smallest bit of viral material.
That’s how they are creating all these cases, if you have ANY small amount of ANY virus when you take the covid test you get told you have covid and then are poisoned with a drug that gives symptoms of covid. This is also why ANYONE vaccinated, not vaccinated, already had covid passed a test 5 minutes ago etc.. can test positive for covid, and even a papaya (yes the fruit) once did..
The above video is the inventor of the PCR test Kary Mullis telling us before covid that they were misusing the test and the below video is him telling us that Fauci does not know shit, and is paid to lie.
Kary Mullis died just before covid hit on August 7, 2019.
The standard drugs prescribed both in hospitals and vaccines have killed lots of people and animals in trials, certainly a higher percentage than covid, killing over 50 percent of humans and 100 percent percent of animals in their only trials.
The only approved drug for treatment of covid is remdisvir. That Fauci calls the standard of treatment. This is the most common drug prescribed because Fauci said it should be is. remdisivir.
The ebola trials were the only trials remdisvir underwent prior to this. Notice how it killed over half the people that took it so the results were unable to be completed. The drug that Fauci introduced killed the second most. Neither of those two got to finish the study with two other drugs that did, because of so many deaths associated. Here are the results admitting that on a government website.
“Among patients in the remdesivir group, the estimated median time was actually more than 28 days because mortality exceeded 50% and expired patients were assigned a time of “>28 days”.”
If this doesn’t disturb you incredibly…. It’s called FAUCI-CIDE.. why would anyone prescribe such a damaging drug to such a easy to beat illness?
In this video a chiropractor discusses how he ran across the above mentioned ebola trials results showing the over 50% death rates, with the devastating results, and realized Fauci was insane to have known about that and still made the drug the standard for covid care.
100 Percent of animals given the covid ‘vaccines’ or mrna injections died.
By both traditional scientific, and traditional legal standards the mRNA shots they give for covid and call vaccines do not qualify as vaccines. But dont worry they decided to change both right before and even after covid-19 to cover it. How convenient that they would have such foresight.
The above video is of course elite level professor of immunology Dolores Cahill. In the video she answers questions about if the covid injections should be considered vaccines, and how the animals reacted in the animal studies for the mRNA shots. Dolores Cahill has decades of elite level achievements, and has never until recently been questioned about her credentials until she went against what paid science is saying. This is of course the case with all of the very brave people being mentioned on this page.
The people pushing these vaccines know they are killing people. but the deal is it took a year or two so we aren’t seeing the most deaths yet. https://files.catbox.moe/qrjxux.mp4
In the video below, Gina, a molecular Biologist blows the whistle very hard at a council meeting in Dawson Creek, BC. This is a mind blowing wow for a city council meeting.
In the below video Dr of Immunology, Dr Thompson reports his findings from tests he preformed He did immunity blood tests both before and after (covid injections). The results blew his mind.
OK the conclusion first…..there is ZERO Comirnaty in the USA, and Pfizer has no intention of bringing Comirnaty to the USA at least for months.
There is no vaccine available in USA that is “fully approved”
Comirnaty is the only “fully approved” Vax in the USA
There is ZERO statement that definitively says that the composition of Comirnaty is the same as BNT162b2, and when they got EUA approval for our children I thought it was #FaF that they just slipped in an anti-heart attack drug to the mix without some massive or ANY study.
This headline from the FDA seems to state that these are separate entities.
stock here: I kind of ignored this high definition video. In reality, the aggregate of all the other videos made it clear that Rittenhouse tried his best to escape the situations, and defended himself when attacked. 2 final statements by “the prosecution” are that because Rosenbaum didn’t have a gun that he posed no threat. Well it is beyond obvious that if Rosenbaum could have succeeded in taking Rittenhouse’s gun, he certainly could have used it against him.
Second point was that because Rittenhouse had a gun, he had given up the right to defend himself.
OK Time to Throw DOWN: The prosecution has known for quite some time that they have ZERO chance of winning. So their choice was to create a trial that greatly angered the judge, and therefore to enable their “base” of Kyle haters to get even stronger hatred and outrage over the process and the outcome.
Soon it will be thrown down that Kyle got to walk away scot free because he was white, once again proving the systemic racism in the white capitalist patriarchy that we all suffer under. Even as the oppressors, we suffer as we knowingly oppress.
1) 20% increase in Teen death among Vaxxed teens in Ireland….I have not verified this one.
2) 20% death by all cause, increase in highly vaccinated Scotland, this year compared to average of last five years. I have verified this one. Spreadsheet attached.
3) Entire UK, 90% of the COVID Deaths are in the Vaccinated, and that is the highest age group, which is coincidentally, 90% vaccinated. The simplest interpretation is that the Vax is not helping this age group the slightest bit, while putting them at considerable risk from the Vax itself. I have verified this one, Image attached.
All these are backed up with peer reviewed Governmental data, and I’ll be glad to provide the backup to anyone who wants it.
That said, there is definitely some benefit to the Vax for younger age groups, of the 50 to 59 age group, 54.6% of the deaths are in the vaccinated, and that age group is 84% Vaxxed. But this is a far cry from Vax prevents severe sickness or death. A majority of those in the hospital for COVID are Vaxxed.
CONCLUSION: THIS IS ALL FISHY AS FUCK. Here is 31 years of VAERS data. Of the 60 or so other vaccines, about the same amount of shots are given in prior years, as COVID shots in the last year. DEATHS reported from the Jab are higher than the prior 30 years COMBINED, that’s not fishy as fuck, that dangerous as eff…..and best estimates are that only 1 in 100 or 2 in 100 get reported. Some think it could be as high as 1 in 10, with the highest reporting rate I have ever seen claimed as 1 in 8.
My dad was almost killed by the Vax, and I have been very familiar with VAERS, but I have not reported it.
stock here: it’s quite interesting, I saw this yesterday, grok’d it. And then lost it and couldn’t find it. Of the one comment on an article I post to Poal about all cause deaths being way up, a reader commented back with this exact article.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS–CoV–2) has led to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID–19) pandemic, severely affecting public health and the global economy. Adaptive immunity plays a crucial role in fighting against SARS–CoV–2 infection and directly influences the clinical outcomes of patients. Clinical studies have indicated that patients with severe COVID–19 exhibit delayed and weak adaptive immune responses; however, the mechanism by which SARS–CoV–2 impedes adaptive immunity remains unclear. Here, by using an in vitro cell line, we report that the SARS–CoV–2 spike protein significantly inhibits DNA damage repair, which is required for effective V(D)J recombination in adaptive immunity. Mechanistically, we found that the spike protein localizes in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding key DNA repair protein BRCA1 and 53BP1 recruitment to the damage site. Our findings reveal a potential molecular mechanism by which the spike protein might impede adaptive immunity and underscore the potential side effects of full-length spike-based vaccines.
Oh, an as an added bonus, the Spike S suppresses adaptive immunity…..Collectively, these clinical observations suggest that SARS–CoV–2 affects the adaptive immune system. However, the mechanism by which SARS–CoV–2 suppresses adaptive immunity remains unclear.
When I first received the invitation to the wedding where I would eventually get COVID, I was on the fence about attending at all. My best friend had gone through a tough divorce and was remarrying. I was thrilled for him. His wedding had been put off repeatedly because of COVID, and this was the couple’s second try at a real ceremony. As a bonus, the wedding would take place in New Orleans, where my friend lives. I hadn’t seen him since before the pandemic. New Orleans is a miraculous place, and my favorite city to visit in America. The notion of a trip there shone out of the fog and dreariness of this whole era of history.
The downside, of course, was the risk of exposure to COVID. Sure, I’m vaccinated—two shots of Pfizer—and the wedding’s other attendees would all be vaccinated too. But breakthrough cases happen, and we’d be in New Orleans in October, a place where cases were still high and vaccination was inconsistent. One could not expect to not get exposed to COVID.
But then I reasoned both with myself and with my wife. COVID was unlikely to kill me, a vaccinated 39-year-old endurance athlete. I would be fine, and even if I gave the coronavirus to any of my family members, they too would almost certainly be fine. My wife is vaccinated, and our young children’s risk of serious illness, while not nonexistent, is very low.
I went back and forth, looking at flights and realizing that I’d probably have to travel through Las Vegas and have a considerable layover. I put off RSVPing one way or the other, and thought I would end up passively not going, the slow slide into a never-booked flight.
But for some reason, one morning in early October, I got the “last call” email about the wedding and I revisited the prospect. Everything was beginning to seem more and more normal. The radio station where I host a show was encouraging people to come back into the office. I saw laughing, maskless people in my social-media feeds and in restaurant windows. The Delta-variant surge was easing in most places. Cases were coming down. The really vulnerable were getting boosters. Kid vaccinations were on the horizon. Filled with a surge of love for my friends and New Orleans and a sense that, you know what, I’m ready to nose out into a new tier of risk, I booked a flight; I’d be going solo.
As the day approached, my wife and I had not run through every scenario. I still was not precisely sure how the wedding would work, COVID-wise. My friend is a doctor, and I knew the crowd would mostly be New York and California people. There would be no anti-vaxxers among the guests, and the invitation said they’d follow the local public-health protocols. And I think I didn’t want to know too much. If I’m honest with myself, once I decided to go, it felt like I’d committed to taking on some risk. At the same time, my wife and I had been in lockstep on COVID stuff for so long that I don’t think I had the courage to really say: Hey, I want to go to this wedding, and it’s probably going to be maskless and … are we really okay with that? I don’t think she wanted to be the one to say no to seeing such good friends, if I was willing to do it.
And so I boarded my flight without the kind of real conversation and—as important—return plan that we should have made. I spent hours in an N95 mask in the Las Vegas airport and on planes before arriving in Louisiana and heading to the welcome drinks.
I walked in and saw that people were all inside, fairly densely packed in a big room. No one was wearing a mask. Everyone was celebrating like people who haven’t seen one another for a long time, ready for a wedding weekend in the greatest city in America. For some reason, I was shocked.
I don’t know why I didn’t expect it to look like that. Maybe I thought we’d be in a garden under some nice string lights, mostly keeping masks on, in that maybe it helps way. I almost turned around and begged off the night of drinks, figuring that the next day would be less risky. But I’d come all that way. Here were my friend’s family and closest friends, the woman he’d fallen in love with. I just couldn’t do it. And all the everyone is vaccinated reasoning started to play in my head. I ordered a tequila and soda, pushed breakthrough infections out of mind, made some new friends, and had a great time.
The wedding was maskless too. But in a huge, airy, gorgeous building. There was a second line through the streets, and people danced and waved white handkerchiefs with the names of the bride and groom. We wore tuxedos and listened to old-time music at Preservation Hall and made jokes and got a little drunk, mostly hanging around outside. When that part ended, a bunch of people went next door to a huge party spot, but I left as soon as I saw the piano-bar-and-club scene there.
My wife was rightfully getting worried. It seemed not unlikely that I’d get exposed to COVID. Had we really been thinking clearly? Had we really wanted to take on that level of risk? Honestly, once I’d been in the situation, the realness started to unfurl. Outside the wedding events, I’d followed our protocols from home, staying outside, masking inside, etc. But attending the wedding was much riskier than I’d wanted to admit before I’d done it.
Walking back across the city, the energy of wanting things to be normal was thick. I felt it too. After spending so much of my time studying COVID, being a part of the response with the COVID Tracking Project, and writing many stories about the pandemic, I was over it. I was done. I don’t know that I could have admitted that to myself, but I just wanted it all to go away. And there in New Orleans, for a few days, it seemed like it had. Just look at all those people singing at the piano bar, dancing to Lizzo, arm in arm with friend and stranger alike.
The next day, away from the wedding and visiting with my best friend, it became more and more obvious. My wife and I needed a plan for my return. I’d do a rapid PCR test at the airport. At least that would get me somewhere.
My kids were so happy to see me, and after my negative result came back, to hug me. Was I actually safe? No, I knew I was not. I should have quarantined. But I had stuck my wife with the kids for four days, and I wanted to get back in the mix and help. That seemed like the right thing to do.
On Monday, I felt fine, but I took an antigen test anyway (negative). I scheduled a PCR test for the next day. By the time my appointment arrived, I’d started to have some postnasal drip and what felt like a possibly psychosomatic tickle in my throat. Tuesday night—four days after the wedding—my PCR result came back negative, and despite having what felt like a cold, I figured I was pretty close to being in the clear.
The next day, my symptoms were about the same. I did an intense Peloton workout and it felt fine, though maybe my legs were a little slow. I wasn’t eager to test again; a negative PCR test seemed good enough. But my wife heard me cough—one of only maybe 20 coughs throughout my whole sickness—and said, “Couldn’t you take another antigen test?”
I was on the phone with a young geographer, talking about doing research at Bay Area libraries, and kind of absentmindedly did the swabbing. When I looked down a few minutes later, I had tested positive. Maybe a false positive? I immediately took another antigen test and the little pink line was practically red, it was so dark. Wrapping up the call, I packed my things quickly, texted my wife the result, walked outside with an N95 mask on, and waited for all hell to break loose.
I was able to find a long-term rental on our block thanks to an angelic neighbor. I set my bags down inside and tried to figure out what I had to do. The worst-case scenario that I’d imagined was that I’d get sick, mildly, as I did. I ended up taking one day off from work, and even that was more of a precaution. I felt pretty sick, like when you have a cold, but I’ve probably been sicker 15 times as an adult. As someone who has thought so much about COVID science, it was almost interesting to experience: Oh! That’s what losing your smell is like.
But the real worst-case scenario was everything that happened to the people around me. My kids had to come out of school and isolate with my wife. A raft of tests had to be taken by everyone I’d had even limited contact with. (I was one of at least a dozen people at the wedding who got sick.) I had been with several older people, including my mother-in-law. For my wife and children, the tests went on for days and days, each one bringing a prospective new disaster and 10 to 14 more days of life disruption or worse.
But for me, the very worst part was my children. They knew, cognitively, that I was vaccinated and unlikely to get really sick. That said, COVID-19, for them, is a terrible thing. The past year and a half of their lives has been disrupted by this virus. They take precautions every single day not to have this happen.
They reacted in different ways. My nonbinary 8-year-old was so mad and maybe so scared that they could barely look at me. My 5-year-old daughter proved her status as the ultimate ride-or-die kid. She brought a chair down the street so she could sit 20 feet away from me outside in her mask, as I sat on the porch in an N95. I’m not sure which reaction was more heartbreaking. It was as if one never wanted to see me again and the other didn’t want to let me out of her sight.
These vaccines are amazing. I was and am fine. But as The Atlantic’s Sarah Zhang described in her recent article “America Has Lost the Plot on COVID,” we have developed the least logical system around them. “The least vaccinated communities have some of the laxest restrictions, while highly vaccinated communities … tend to have some of the most aggressive measures aimed at driving down cases,” Zhang writes.
In the communities where ignoring the pandemic is the norm, COVID testing may not be standard—and even when testing takes place, the required isolation and quarantining procedures are sometimes ignored. As I’ve found, you really are on your own to set the limits of what you do. And given the requirements and difficulties of isolating, I can imagine that few people are willing and able to follow the letter of the law.
A positive test sets in motion huge hassles and anxieties for anyone you’ve been in contact with. This is how we slow the spread, right? It makes sense. And also, families and businesses and schools and event venues are trying to return to normal. Perhaps the risks of going into an office every day are far less than those of going to a wedding in New Orleans. But in the course of actual normal life in the places that have fought this virus the hardest, there will be more positive tests. Just in the past few weeks, I’ve seen more and more of them around me here in the Bay Area.
For people pondering edging back into normal life, or trying to jump in headfirst as I did, it’s easy to do the risk calculation only about physical health; that’s really what this was about for so long. But the vaccines changed that, and we need to update our mental spreadsheets. The life disruption—the logistical pain you cause those around you—is now a major part of any bad scenario. As I write this, I’m now 10 days past my first symptoms, but I continue to test positive on antigen tests, and so I have not returned home. I haven’t hugged my kids for 10 days. They missed a whole week of school, and my wife’s work life got turned upside down—even though they never tested positive or got sick. I blame no one but myself for this. We cannot will this pandemic to be over. Lord knows I tried.
I understand that my scenario is far better than could or would have played out in a pre-vaccination world. So many communities were hit hard. I have enjoyed tremendous privilege to keep my risk low before now. We got lucky that I didn’t infect anyone vulnerable. I’m so grateful my wife insisted that I take just one more test.
In social worlds like mine, though, where most people do work from home, where people have minimized risk and gotten vaccinated, we’re at a weird moment. Things aren’t likely to change that much for quite some time. Even after however many kids get vaccinated, there will still be breakthrough infections. Other variants could spread. Maybe we’re in this space for another year or two or three. One way to put the question of endemicity is: When do we start treating COVID like other respiratory illnesses?
I don’t know the answer. And I’m not even sure who should be trying to answer the question. There are many outstanding mysteries about long COVID. There are still so many unvaccinated Americans, and that number seems unlikely to shift a lot anytime soon.
Right now most policies appear designed to make life seem normal. Masks are coming off. Restaurants are dining in. Planes are full. Offices are calling. But don’t be fooled: The world’s normal only until you test positive.Alexis C. Madrigal is a contributing writer at The Atlantic,a co-founder of the COVID Tracking Project,and the author of Powering the Dream: The History and Promise of Green Technology. He is also a co-host of Forum on KQED.
stock here: To me this seems like an act of desperation. He knows what he has been put up to, sending dozen of “science experiments” in different lots to many different states. Why do that when it is so logistically difficult? To test different “formulas” on different demographics, ages, and temperatures.
And why is Pfizer being allowed to re-purpose a drug used in 2003 SARS-1 research, call it their new product, and make Billions off it? But also this will be route to get their formulations into the bodies of the VXX hesitant. Don’t effing fall for it.
So Pfizer J*w is creating division, hate, and a scape goat of the truth tellers.
In OhMyGod, Ohio, on a slow Thursday afternoon, Dr. Helmet Von Suit, a career bureaucrat, the president of the school board, held a meeting to discuss budget allocations for the coming year. Sixty parents sat in the room.

Margo Smith stood up and said:
I have two young boys in elementary school. One of them brought me a book from the library which contains pictures and descriptions of oral sex and other sexual practices. I’m going to read a graphic passage from the book now—
That won’t be possible. To read it would be obscene, and we can’t have that at a public meeting.
Dr. Suit, as I said, this is a book from—
I don’t care where it’s from. I refuse to allow—
All right. I’ve copied pages from the book and sent them to a hundred parents in the District. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from them. Now, as to the matter of Critical Race Theory, I have a video taken in a sixth grade class two weeks ago. The teacher is telling nine-year olds that all white people are evil racists, and that would include children. I’ll play you the audio.
No you won’t. What goes on in our classrooms is private and privileged. Taping is a crime.
I see. It’s all right for a teacher to tell nine-year olds that all white people are racists, but it’s not all right for anyone to document the teacher saying that. Good, Dr. Suit. We now have you on the record. So I’ll move on. Four teachers in the District are teaching very young children they can choose their gender. Not only that—and we have audio and video—but the teachers are telling the kids they can take puberty blocking drugs that will help them make a choice about gender. In this folder, I have eight published studies describing the VERY serious adverse effects of the drugs. I want to read a passage from one of the studies.
Out of order. We don’t permit casual reading of scientific literature. Our District public health people make all medical decisions—
Then I’ll say this. I have another folder here with studies documenting the ineffectiveness of masks, and the negative consequences of children wearing them. On top of that, I have 40 studies—
—That conclude the COVID vaccines are unnecessary for children and carry considerable risks.
You don’t get to decide that.
Oh but I do. A month ago, I started a Zoom group of school parents in the District. We now have 85 parents attending our sessions. The number expands every week. You can either hold real discussions with us or you can suffer the consequences.
That sounds like a threat. It borders on terrorism.
We’re aware the US Attorney General has tasked the FBI with investigating parents like us, all across the country, who are rising up in rebellion against oppressive school boards. We don’t care. We’re willing to deal with whatever comes our way.
Even if it means being thrown in jail?
Especially if it means that. We want the vaccine mandate eradicated. We’re not sending our kids to school if they have to take the shot. We’ll pull our kids out. Actually, we’re in the process of starting our own home school. Free from people like you.
What do mean, people like me?
Bureaucrats who pick up a paycheck on our tax dime and harm our children. By the way, we know your teachers aren’t teaching our children how to read and write. Certainly not at their grade levels. Your teachers are faking grades to make it seem education is going on in the classrooms.
This is outrageous.
I agree. And we’ve had enough. This is a 1776 moment, Doctor.
Another threat of insurrection.
You bet. That’s exactly what it is. Without guns. Without a shot being fired. You’re a bureaucrat who does evil, who passes along evil, who permits evil. You think we serve you, but we don’t. You’re OURS.
I won’t stand for this.
You’ll stand for it or sit for it. Our numbers are growing every day. We won’t back down. No matter what.
Trump is behind all this!
Who? Oh, you mean the former President who keeps flogging his wondrous COVID vaccine that’s caused, by a VERY conservative estimate, more than 800,000 injuries in America? But listen, keep trying to sell that line. Sell anything you want to.
Who are you anyway? Who’s behind you? Who’s funding you? Everything you’re saying is just code for white racism.
Keep telling yourself that, as more and more black parents join our group.
We have hundreds of thousands of people on social media who will drown you out.
Do you seriously think we care about those bobble heads? We’re parents. PARENTS. We would do anything for our children. You’re fronting for an agenda of destruction. We see that clearly. You want to control our kids’ minds. We want to make them free and strong and independent. Those are the terms of the war. Now, seriously, who do you think is on the side of the angels?
Don’t give me that garbage. Children live under the protection of the State. They’re part of the State.
Glad to get that on the record, too, DOCTOR.
You don’t have final say over your children. We can intercede.
You’ve been interceding for a long time. We were asleep. Not anymore.
We’re a duly instituted public school board. You have no license to change what we do.
The school system and the government behind it are stronger than you are.
We’ll see about that. Ever hear of the phrase, “consent of the governed?”
That consent was given to us a long time ago.
We’re in the process of taking it back. You’re a figurehead, Dr. Suit. As classrooms in your schools empty out, and more and more parents put their kids into home schooling, you’ll see that. When our Union of Concerned Parents starts picketing your—
Union of what?!
Did I forget to mention that? We’re forming a Union of the Dissenters.
You have no power to do that.
Of course we do. That’s what our lawyers tell us.
Yes. It turns out that some parents are also practicing attorneys.
Don’t get sarcastic with me.
This is just the beginning of your nightmare. We’re going to squeeze you in every possible way. We no longer recognize your authority. Nor do we accept your judgments.
I’ll have you thrown in jail.
You already said that. We’re ready. We have six local police officers in our parent group. If we’re arrested, they’ll be making video statements which, by the way, will mention you by name. Those videos will be spread all over the world.
By what law? Has the 1st Amendment been recently revoked? And how do you think jailing dozens of parents is going to play? Talk to your PR people. Ask them.
You pay us to babysit your children.
Thank you again, Doctor. Another nice statement for the record. Actually, no. We pay you to teach our children to think for themselves, to use their imaginations. To learn the basics. You’re failing on all counts.
I’m warning you.
Warning us about what?
You’ve gone too far.
We’re just getting started. Our theater group—
—Will be putting on little sketches all over town. You’re the featured character. Doctor Suit Enforces Mask Mandates on Our Children, But He Doesn’t Wear a Mask in Public. That’s the first one. We’ll be reading passages describing raw sex acts from the book in the school library. That should provoke some interesting reactions. You know—“Here’s how your tax dollars are being spent.”
I am sitting down, Doctor. I’ve been sitting down for a few minutes. You’re the one standing up.
You’re a devil.
I refer you to the members of my church. I’m the head of the choir. On the other hand, your provenance is questionable.
My status is Independent. I cast my votes in elections on a case by case basis. You…not so much. We have your record during your term as city councilman. We know who donated to your campaign. For example, that “financier for the people,” who lobbied against the bill that would have ordered a clean-up of the lead and other heavy metals in the drinking water.
I’m calling the police now.
We already have, Doctor. We’ve informed them this is a legal and peaceful meeting, and we’re happy to answer any questions they may have. You see, Doctor, we’re prepared. We’re not bumpkins. We try to think things through and anticipate. We want to provide a workable template for other parent groups, so they can do the same. Of course, we’re outraged at what you’ve been doing to our children. But that doesn’t mean we’re flying by the seat of our pants. By the way, we have a request. Your brother-in-law owns a piece of empty land on the edge of the city. Some of our parents who live out there want to turn it into an urban farm. People in the community would grow food for themselves and sell the excess to local markets. We’d like you to help us get permission.
I can’t do that.
There is an ongoing negotiation with the city to—
Turn it into a landfill for garbage. Yes, we’re aware. But which would you rather see? People living next door to a toxic dump, or those people growing clean, nutritious, free food for themselves and their families?
This is a PR stunt.
Since when is food a stunt?
I refuse to knuckle under to pressure.
Because you’re bent on control. In your mind, giving people an inch is letting them take a mile. You need basic re-education.
You’re lecturing me about education?
Your PhD is in social psychology. Aside from teaching one semester of plane geometry and algebra in a private junior high school, you’ve never dealt with students face to face. After the school let you go, you flew out to California and convinced a rich friend from college to cut you in on a winery he was launching. You’ve been serving as an administrative assistant in that operation for many years. As far as we can tell, your job involves studying in-house reports and liaising with a law firm. Recently, you spoke with your friend about bankrolling your run for mayor of our city. You have your eye on that office, as a stepping-stone to the governorship. We don’t think that’s going to happen for you. We think you’re dead in the water, Doctor.
I’m what, Doctor? My name is Margo Smith, and I have two young children in public school in your District. Today, I pulled them out of school. They’re never going back. The perverse show you and your board members are running, which you call education, is a blight. It’s a disgrace and a crime. You’re a grifter with a degree next to your name, that’s all.
You’re making this personal. You’re digging into my private life. That’s out of bounds. It’s illegal.
Really? If you’re going to throw your hat in the political arena, Doctor, you’d better get used to it. It’s called opposition research. I’m trying to prepare you. You should be thanking me. For instance, remember the cute beagle your family used to have? Sonny? For some reason, you gave Sonny away. But not to another family. Not even to a shelter. You donated him to your old friend, Jim Murdock. Jim owns an animal testing lab. Sonny went into a cage. To test an experimental antibiotic, lab techs cut away pieces of Sonny’s body, leaving open wounds, to study “infection rate and treatment.” The experimental drug, used for bacterial infections, was redundant. There were a dozen antibiotics just like it on the market.
I never knew about that until it was too late!
We don’t think that’s true. We’ve been talking to Jim Murdock.
That son of a bitch!
A few years ago, you gave him advice about a biotech stock. You told him you had inside information. He bought shares, and it tanked. He wasn’t very happy about that. —I see the police are arriving. A bunch of us are leaving now, Doctor, to chat with them. Carry on. Discuss how you’re going to spend our tax dollars. We’ll see you around. Soon and often. We’ll pass along your regards to your ex-wife. A few of us are having tea with her later this afternoon. Should be an interesting conversation.
I have been meaning to write this one up quickly. I guess there could be other reasons why they would refuse shot 2, but I can’t think of any whenever the published knowledge is that shot 2 greatly increases your immunity, or “risk of severe illness”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday about 223.9 million people have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, including about 194 million people who have been fully vaccinated by Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine or the two-dose series made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.
