Quick story...I was at 2 grocery stores yesterday and all the aisles were full of food. I was expecting the meat shortages to show up by now, but literally the meat shelves were full. Only TP was missing -- you would think this COVID was a food poisoning disease.

Also, in one of the stores I walked in and after getting a quick stare from another customer, I realized that I had forgotten my mask in the car. Didn't want to have problems (since masks are required in grocery stores in LA), so I went back to my car and got one. (Also forgot a week before, but just finished shopping and no one said a thing -- not even the cashier when checking out.) However, I'm thinking that next time I'm just going to intentionally walk in, shop and check out just as I used to as I tend to think about half of the shoppers agree the masks are useless and silly, but they just need a catalyst / leader to take the first steps.

My point is that Americans should have never bought this brainwashing, but they did and although I would love and prefer if things went back to the old normal overnight, the masses will need baby steps and every little thing we can do to disrupt the narrative and propaganda will take us there.

So unless I'm stopped at the door by a security guard and specifically told that I can't enter without a mask, I will not be wearing them when entering and will just mind my business as if not wearing the mask, always was and still is the same normal.

Last, back to TP. Because the TP is always gone, and there's no possible way to store that much in our homes, and I never see people leaving the store with TP, I've come to the conclusion that the only reason for the TP shortage is because they're blocking it from even being distributed to the stores in any normal quantities in order to create the panic. Would love to ask a store general manager for confirmation, but I'm sure they've been told months ago to deny that the distribution is the issue.

Anyway, I'll be maskless (naked face)...hoping others get on board like Ugrev here did.

@Tickerguy - per your point about no "red" states fully lifting restrictions...Are we to assume that literally almost every one of these .gov leaders is either ignorant, stupid, or a power-hungry tyrant (mostly #3)? If so, we are well and truly fucked as there will be no end to this.

@Wifi - looking at your video, I'm astounded at how stupid these commissioners seem to be. Anyone else get that impression?

Every day I wake up thinking the voice of reason will show up in TPTB and every day it fails to happen.

@Tarponchaser - Yep.

This is what happens when you let various shake-down rackets run for years if not decades without saying "no" and enforcing it. That sort of horseshit NEVER gets better over time.

As expected there are the screams of racism! coming from people because of a skew in the death numbers toward black and brown people.

I believe there is truth to that, a virus of course can't be racist, so how could the screams of racism be true? Simple Vitamin D

It is also generated by your body as a consequence of sun exposure. That is, locking people into their homes directly injures them

But who gets injured more from lack of vitamin D? Whites like fauxi, berks, gates and coumo or blacks that only want to go to work to support their families?
From the link:

among African Americans, some experts have called vitamin D deficiency a hidden epidemic and have speculated that low levels are to blame for higher rates of diseases such as hypertension, heart disease and diabetes. The Chicago Sun-Times went even further, linking African-American death rates from aggressive forms of breast and prostate cancer to low levels of vitamin D.

In addition what is the percentage of black or brown people who have lost their jobs during this forced lock down?

The virus of course can not be racist, but to those who are using it to control our actions, it is most certainly racist. If they can keep you from getting what God intended - The Sun!

If they can keep you hiding under your covers, they are happy. If your youth are weak they are happy, if your communities fall into ruins they are happy. So please keep cowering in fear of this "Invisible Enemy" while your REAL enemies takes everything from you.

Where are you black leaders? Where are you brown leaders? Where are you churches? Why are you so willing to submit to these racist overlords, for the hope of receiving a dime?

A virus can never be racist, but it certainly can be used as a whip against anyone willing to submit

A black friend of mine on FB who is a retired nurse posted an article about getting out in the sun to generate vitamin D. I pointed out that people with darker complexions might not be able to get enough vitamin D from the sun to achieve therapeutic blood levels and probably need to supplement. She agreed 100% and wrote that she took 10,000 IU of D3 per day.

what in your opinion are practical ways of withdrawing consent and voicing dissent?
Every situation is different, larger cities seem to be more willing to consent to this stupidity. Smaller communities is about a 50/50 split. I was at walmart last night, they have cute little signs EXIT ONLY and ENTER ONLY for the most part people are now ignoring those signs. NO ONE except the store clerk in the check out line I was in was wearing a mask, social distancing is mostly a shopping cart length. Thankfully many people around this part simply aren't complying.

I personally make it a point to go into a mom and pop shop and buy something, thank them for remaining open. Almost every day I go on a couple three mile walk, some walks take me by parks and I have noticed some rat bastard has been taking down the "Caution" tape that had been surrounding the playground equipment...Some people....

Guantlett: LA is Much bigger than my area, so things of course will be different. For years walmart has been trying to get people to "show their receipts" on the way out the door. Although I have been asked on several occasions, I have never shown my receipt. I walk right past them. Can this work in reverse for you? You will never know if you don't try.

There is no expectation of you needing to ask any flunky standing at the door for permission for what to wear. Pretend you are on the phone, pretend you can't hear them, pretend you can't understand engrish. Being rude or confrontational will get you no where, but unless they are a commissioned officer they can not stop you. Maybe they end up calling the real piggies, but you are under no obligation to answer ANY of their questions, be polite, sign nothing, except nothing and if the real pigs escort you from the store go polity, but document EVERYTHING on your end.

If you get all the way to the check out line and the teller says "Sir, I can't help you unless you wear a mask" Smile and leave. If that does happen I hope you have a bunch of ice cream in your cart.

Good luck out there.

@Mangymutt, re black and brown people having a higher COVID death rate, I assumed it was due to poorer diet higher in carbs causing a higher percentage of obesity, heart disease, etc., but lack of Vitamin D could definitely also be a contributing factor.

Kinda' reminds me of all this BS you hear online about "X" food being the new "super food" over the past 20 plus years (first broccoli, then blueberries, then avocados, then pomegranates, then kale,...), so people rush out to get it while not understanding that we all need a balance of all the vitamins and minerals.

Also, I came to the conclusion that a good diet isn't about the good/healthy things you do eat, but rather the unhealthy, poisons/toxins you DON'T eat, whereas tons of people think "hey, I'll eat cake, donuts, and candies (all of which have artificial colors and flavors with carcinogenic effects) and then a floret of broccoli will make it all better. Sorry, doesn't work that way.

Would you feed that crap to your dog, cat, bunny, etc.? People would call PETA on you and say you're a horrible person, right? Then why the F do you feed that crap on a daily basis to yourself?

Yeah, be careful with Vitamin D supplementation. It is entirely possible to overdo that and if you do it's VERY, VERY BAD. This is NOT Vitamin C where taking too much just means you piss it out and, in the extreme case, you get the shits.

Because the food pyramid is a lie.

Granted we are in charge of what we put into our bodies. But when we have a compulsorily education system that magically deems one side of the argument as science. Most people willingly except that as truth and never question there might be more to the story.

When our system says your child MUST go to school, most parents never question what their child is being told. And when those parents are told their children will be fed, they never question what they are eating. And when kids are told lots and lots of chemically laden cards are good for them, and the schools confirm this by feeding it to them, most parents are inclined to follow instead of lead.

What group is most effected by this? Which demographic group is having their health stolen from them? Which skin colors are most effected by lack of fresh air and sun light. Yet day in and day out the brown and black leaders cry....Beg...for more equality by ending "white privilege" Ummm Wrong argument!!!

But I guess when you get sexed daily by the system, it is easy for you to believe fauxi, brix and gates actually care about you. Looks like Karl is right, it's not rape if you consent.

It's not so bad.

No bullets whizzing by our heads, there's plenty of food, power, water.

If this is as bad as it gets, I'll take it.

FWIW, I'm a big vitamin D person. Take 2000-5000 iu/day (I take 4000). Take it with Vit K2 (MK4 and MK7 blend), reasonable amount of Vit A, and magnesium. Take a high dose of Vit D3 by itself and it can lead to problems. But take all the stuff together and it does one a lot of good.

@Ticker Guy

Everyone living North of the 45th Parallel is Vit D deficient. I've been taking 15,000 to 20,000IU in excess of 10 years and no ill effects unless you consider the nature of my opinions an 'ill effect".

Now back to the rest of the opinions.

So went to Wallyworld today to exchange a couple pairs of shorts that were too big for my daughter. Walk through the front door and the dept manager standing there asked if it was return or exchange, told her exchange and she said go ahead to counter. Get up there after waiting for 5 min and she proceeds to tell me they are no longer accepting returns/exchanges of clothing until "this" is over. I honestly thought it was a joke until I realize its not. I'm furious as I walk out and tell the dept manager about it and she looks at her little list on the wall and it apparently says clothing (she clearly did not know about this little rule change). She was surprised....

She walks in with me to another manager inside the door and that manager said yes it came from "corporate" and they can't do anything until this is over. I ask "so over could mean never right??" "Yet I can return a plastic toy?? But not clothing?" I was fuming and I could see in her eyse she knew that it's all total BS. Pure deception where I'm buying something that normally is returnable and there are no signs or notices (other than going to their corp website and digging for it) to tell me there is no chance in H#LL that I can return things that pose no more risk than me flatly walking into a store.

I'm tempted now just to go in and grab the exchange items, walk up to the counter and when they tell me again that I can't do that, I just happen to leave the wrong sized apparel on the table and walk out with what I need. Ooops my mistake, mixed them up.

Other than ourselves, there are NONE who are charged with the custodianship of our welfare. Those who consider gov't or the medical establishment as the custodians of our welfare are pusillanimous, simpering fools who have enabled and even encouraged the excesses of gov't and gov't-affiliated orgs (of which the medical establishment is one of the most powerful) to control, and limit the liberties of, the citizens of what used to be the USA.

Time to get over it an move on. What ever they had planned its already done, whether that was the Fed/Market, Treasury/Spending, lower borrowing rates,or more control over people, they already have what they want. You only have to look at the headlines in the papers, its gone from Covid headlines and end of the world, to everything is opening up, beaches, pubs etc and the covid death stories are on page 3. No one is going to do anything about it this time either and that includes Trump, so may as well accept your lot as crappy as that may be.

15000-20000 iu of Vitamin D by itself, and one can likely deposit calcium right into their blood vessels and arteries. It hurts more than it helps + totally unnecessary.

But up to 5000 iu Vit D3 & Vit K2 (100 mcg MK4 + 100 mcg MK7) & up to 4000 iu Vit A & Magnesium 200+ MG all works together and = good immune function and good blood vessel and artery maintenance

A big middle finger to Trump, Governor Newsom and the globalists. Love it! That's what we need...people, cities, etc. popping up like zits and fires that they can't put out.

By the way, I go to the post office every week, never wear a face mask even though 100% of the others there are masked and never had one worker or anyone else there question it. Like Karl says, it's only rape if you resist, so stop wearing the masks and we can end this charade.
