But in your last post, you hung an entire conspiracy off it.

Are you saying you're a fucking dipshit who doesn't even read the shit they base their retarded conspiracies off?

Colour me surprised.

For real, I love the lockdown.

Signed a nice little contract 3 weeks before everything went introvert. Have spent the entire time staying at home, lifting, and ordering shit online. All the while getting paid.

Alphabet daily routine:

1)Wake up around 9am. Drink coffee for the following hour.

2)20 minutes of responding to work email.

3)Look at oil stock I bought with the TrumpBux. Bought heavily when oil shit the bed 2 months ago. Winning.

4)Shop for 30 mins. "The Mandalorian" playing in the background for white noise.

5)UPS guy shows up. New toys.

6)Break for lunch. Sea Doo time.

7)Lift in the garage for 2 hours.

8)Do some milling and machining on the new toys that have arrived.

9)Nap.

10)10 minutes answering email.

11)Bang the air force girl next door who is on lockdown as well.



Who in their right fooking mind is crying about lockdown and "working" from home?
It could be raining pussy, and troops will complain and blame leadership for not providing an equal ration of ass.

Well ROB, I think that I stated that I didn't give any consideration to the theories presented, only to the statements the article claimed were made by Fauci and the technical head of the government's Covid team. You and others piped in with "Oh no he didn't", perhaps you could direct me to the original quotes or statements that refute what the ZH article said. I'm open to new sources of information. I'm surprised I have to point that out to you or are you saying you're a fucking dipshit that can't read my posts? Color me unsurprised.

You couldn't write, you apparently have difficulty reading and you are filled with bitterness and bile and vent it here in simplistic attacks. What's that like?

What? You mean what he said?

The original source is Fauci's conclusions based on what we know so far about a virus that has been studied for less than 7 months.

But picture this:

Someone who works in Traffic safety and has for years says "obeying the speed limit, traffic laws, and wearing a seat belt will reduce your chance of being hurt or killed in a car accident by making it more likely that you and others like you will avoid a car accident in the first place. But doing this is a still not a 100% guarantee of safety on the road."

That would be accurate, right? Based on what we know about cars, traffic, velocity and human mistakes that is accurate information and if followed it works. The more people who follow it the more it works.

Putting it through the conspiracy grist mill it would be:

Seatbelts, traffic laws and speed limits are largely symbolic, the expert said it was no guarantee anyway.

That's you guys right there. But with a plague.

That's stupid.

It's in the video here:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/27/politics ... index.html

Sorry about CNN (the worst website ever, it just changes layout spontaneously for some reason as if to get you to click on something you never wanted to see)

Then 4 days later as it went through a stupid filter in a still somewhat mainstream media it became "Largely Symbolic"

https://www.newsbreak.com/news/0PChnzXP ... not-happen

http://www.capecharlesmirror.com/news/f ... ot-happen/

Then that, combined with earlier wrong information based on what little we knew back when we were told to avoid masks because it may give the virus a place to hide, have created the "largely symbolic" claim.

That said, if you like Zero Hedge you will love Strogosekretno

You know Kurt, the link I asked for served nicely; thanks. Everything else is just you complaining that I and whomever you have, without much thought lumped me in with are degrading the acoustics of the echo chamber you are working hard to build here. We are either with you or agin you, and if we agin you we are all the same. That is pretty tedious and while I have come to expect it from the likes of ROB he isn't a moderator. If CNN is your go to news source then perhaps I understand why you cannot answer simple questions like who would you like to see as Biden's VP pick. Maybe you haven't been told what you think about that yet. I am actually trying to be open minded and objective, fail though I might. I can be reasoned with and I would never lump you in with all the rest of those I disagree with currently, subject to change with the rational presentation of new info. You are not like the others, you are unique in your over emotive and uncritical defense of the narratives that you elect to support. You didn't hear me say, "Look at these links and know the truth, ye who are all cut from the same cloth..." I expected pushback, and I expect to be wrong sometimes. What I don't expect from you is, "Look MJK is one of those, let's exchange Internet eyerolls!" You should give your current debate style another look; it isn't becoming of a moderator. I have worked hard lately to be polite to everyone except, well, you know; give it a try yourself.

I think you view refutation as being rude.

I believe nonsense is fatal these days so I am a bit more harsh with it when I encounter it. I picture the BFC as like a gym where people sometimes punch each other. Perhaps I am wrong.

Welcome back J! There really is no leaving this big dysfunctional family...once you’re in, there’s no way out !

I too have been loving 2020’s lockdown, has saved my ass from countless social obligations, the wife can’t go shopping any more, and the kids are now getting a ‘proper’ education away from school.

I’m certainly not shagging any Air Force girls next door though, so you got me beat.....wait, you didn’t mention if she was hot. Always provide pics!

We aren't fairing too well here in Florida. Kinda funny how opening up the state and allowing in tourists from all the hot zones does that.

But hey.....All the single babymomma servers and Waffle House neck tattooed cooks are back to work.

DeSantis is an idiot.

Sorry it took a day to get back here; working three jobs, 7 days a week. ROB piped right up, must be unemployed. I know he isn't working as a writer....

Kurt, I find it interesting that you view alternate opinions about the pandemic as nonsense. Didn't you just state that there is a lot we don't know about it as it is a new thing? Yet what you know about it is all chiseled in stone and handed down from the mountain; that must be nice. Also lumping ZH in with whatever the fuck Russian shit that was at that link seems a bit over the top. Show us on the doll where Zero Hedge touched you inappropriately with one of their articles. Their nickname is Fight Club; did you get 'punched' in the Comments section and didn't like it? Every news source with a following seems to eventually get compromised one way or the other. ZH started as cutting edge financial news and then moved into the doom porn field although is often right on the money. There are still accurate articles posted there, even the Left quotes ZH from time to time. I look to the left for a bit of balance and sometimes find gold there; New Eastern Order is interesting. Voltairenet has opened my eyes on things MiddleEastern. Target Liberty gives the Libertarian angle an airing. Where do you go for your info?

Come clean and tell me where you go for news first thing in the morning; I know it isn't CNN. Even Godless New Yorkers set the bar higher than that. Then perhaps your shyness on who should be Biden's running mate might lessen. But I doubt it. Let me type a few names and when you see one you like for VP just nod at the screen...Kamala Harris? AOC? Lizzie Warren? Jussie Smollet? Biden favors a woman of color and those are the highest profile I can think of. Warren did brush up against a First Nations person on a crowded sidewalk once.

I go to the New York Post. Why? No Paywall. Simple as that. For subscription I get The Spectator (UK) and The Times (UK) I tend to hate American style writing in newspapers.

That was a Bulgarian news site. It is the father of the guy who founded Zero Hedge. ZH and I have the same views on high finance but the Politics are closer to Strogo Sekretno, and that is Pro-Russian.

Not a Biden fan, I do not like Kamala harris or Warren. Don't care who he chooses actually. Gonna vote for the idiot though, not going to be enthusiastic about it.

And I do view "Alternate" versions of the pandemic as nonsense and advocates of that alternate view as dangerous idiots. We do not know about this new virus and that alone says we should be much more cautious than we are.

Our infection rate and our climbing death rate shows I am right about the "Dangerous Idiots" part.
