An interesting write up about Fauci and his long history of not-so-successfully fighting disease while funnelling money to Big Pharma:

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/artic....

Despite the MSM effort to paint him as a saint, he's been flailing for years and wrong about nearly everything.

Tonythetiger -- the question is not what Fauci did in the past. it is why does he still have a job?

Answers a lot of questions about the problems with our government.

It's really "why isn't he in prison?"

30,000 people that ****er shoved in the hole during the fiasco with PCP and AIDS -- for which we KNEW there was a working prophylaxis, as it was discovered in 1977 (Bactrim.) He was loudly and repeatedly against it for years and literally 30,000 people who had AIDS died of a preventable infection as a direct consequence.

If you or I pulled that sort of **** we would have done 999 years in general population.

Perhaps the low wage workers (YOU KNOW)!
or was that made up as a means of just talking more **** about them "low wage" workers?

Most of us in retail of any kind restaurant/store don't give a **** to say anything to anyone! Even management could care less about telling the customers blah blah blah!

Most notably because in retail you don't want conflict, it's the same reason why we can't do **** about the shop lifters!

So what? Ya got griped at once and so you're making it out to be everyone who works at now a very dangerous Job? A job you probably wouldn't have any clue on how to do!

Dangerous not the virus **** that! Dangerous because of *******s whom walk around with the look at and **** these low wage workers, perhaps I'll******one off and see if I can get them fired! Yeah we face losing our jobs every minute of every day!

Dangerous because of criminal types, yep that's getting worse!

Dangerous because of entitled ******* customers who are impatient and ready to kill you if this or that is out of stock and or doesn't instantly appear in their hands!!

Oh yeah yeah now you or some of you will run me some bull**** about how y'all worked retail back in the 70's, 80's and or the 90's!!

Big ****in whoop you know Jack **** about it today customertards!

Tell ya what, you think society is going down? You think that it's all failing?
Yeah you're right but you still have no idea!

You really want to see the demise of society? You really want to see first hand what's going on?
Then get your ass a part time retail job, I don't care if it's only one or two days/nights a week!

I bet ya $50 bucks not many many of you would last a month!

"Oh but it's low wage"
"yes those pesky low wage workers"

Funny thing is y'all would be the first ****ers to demand more money lol though many of you act as if the balance of earth will be destroyed if these "low wage workers was to earn more money"!

Yeah see lots of folks love to Dick wag about their fantasy 1950s nonsense... But they conveniently leave out of just forget to mention that humm in the 40's, 50's and oh the late 60's you could totally work in retail and own a couple of cars, own a house and have a wife and kids that it actually paid a livable wage!!!
and you didn't even need to be in management like that went for the person running the register to the ****er stocking the shelves!

but most of you filled your head with corporate nonsense since probably the seventies anyway, it's that corporations aren't really going to tell you how business actually works, so when they do come out and pretend to give you some inside information most of you walk around with your head in the clouds as if you've just learned some nextlevel****....

But of course what did these corporations convince you of? Simple, "the job isn't worth that kind of money" then they used logic against you, by threatening that if we actually have to pay theirs livable wages we're going to jack up the prices beyond belief!!

And you idiots bought it! pretty funny how everyone forgets the 40s 50s and 1960s when retail did honestly pay a livable wage but somewhere in the seventies they convinced all of you, that no no it's just a supplemental job for the wife, or no no it's just a teeny bopper job it's really not worth blah blah blah!!

so then of course it's become a political issue which has led to minimum wage hikes they use that as a convenient excuse to jack up prices even if it's hardly a ****ing nickel wage hike!

yes I understand that every penny does contribute to the cost of business I'm not stupid I have managed to set on both sides of this desk....

however when you're jacking **** up $0.70 because some idiot politicians said that your state has to pay another five to ten cents more on the hour and you claim you're going oh so ****ing broke, okay you're just running a scam because if your books are in that bad of shape chances are you probably should have went out of business six months ago goodbye!

But it's just them "low wage workers"!!!

it's the same answer Karl, prison or fired. People in this country decided to outsource their monitoring of the society because they had better things to do and did not wish to be held accountable for their own decisions.

Parents outsource the raising of their children and can blame the schools, hello so-called conservatives. This goes for those who think that private/parochial schools are good for teaching children proper discipline.

The subset of Americans (a large one in some communities) when they achieve a certain degree of wealth, perhaps in early retirement, definitely if retired at standard age, do not dedicate their economic freedom and lives to active engagement with the problems. No, they pursue their hobbies and interests and whatever leisure that they think that they deserve.

Men with free time and resources do not spend even a small percentage of such patrolling their own communities, virtually eliminating the need for constant policing. Nah, gotta have the second house, boat or some other hobby or home improvement projects.

People just exist until they cannot anymore. Most of them consider themselves conservative Republicans, yuck. They think that voting is their contribution along with the pittance of taxes in comparison to their retirement medical benefits.

This is the problem.

@Whitehat @Tickerguy

Agree 150%. Hanging would probably too good for Fauci. He deserves to suffer longer than that, with the same end result, after a fair trial of course. But that's only an opinion of what would constitute a just result. Eye for an eye, and all that.

@Jeepguy I fully understand where you're coming from. I spent several years in the small restaurant (partner) business back in the 2000s. I routinely put in 90 hour weeks to clear roughly $30,000 a year as one of the bosses. Gave it up to go back to engineering.

But I have experienced first hand what you describe. Some customers are the worst sort of people, while trying to act like they're somebody. I've had asshats run my butt everywhere for an hour to make their meal enjoyable, only to leave a $2 tip on a $45 tab before driving off in their BMW 7 series.

I have found these are mostly lifelong government employees. They treat their servers like **** and are the first to launch into a near hissy fit over anything that's not up to the standards they demand.

My engineering job supports a government customer. What I've observed there is that many of these folks don't know the meaning of hard work. One government guy I worked with spent at least 45 minutes a day looking through the USA Jobs website (on the clock) trying to find an opening in Hawaii that would 1) pay more than his current salary, and 2) pay his moving expenses to get there. A real productive use of taxpayer dollars there. Meanwhile, I'm making an average of 15 trips around the country to attend meetings for an entire decade, with barely enough time to do the necessary work between them, much less peruse want ads.

IMHO, the expansion of government into almost every aspect of our lives is one of the major problems with our country. Take TSA as an example. Over 50,000 TSA agents costing billions annually and producing exactly zero in return. In fact, their net contribution is probably negative once you take the harassment factor into account. Ditto for the guy who clears $80,000, plus benefits, for riding a golf cart around checking up on the contractors hired to mow the lawns at $12/hr and no benefits.

You should see the government folks surprised look when I tip 50% on a dinner paid with per diem money. I'd rather eat a low cost meal and tip extra, while the government folks are busy using the calculator on their phone to figure a 15% tip and complain how expensive it all is, like it was their money to begin with.

I've made it a standard to tip at least 35% on anything I order in a restaurant, even take out. I often tip more than that. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten a heartfelt Thank You in return. I can't solve everyone's problems, but I can make one person a bit happier from time to time. I've been lucky to continue working from home and collecting a paycheck. Sharing it with folks waiting tables is the least I can do.

If only with more people saw it that way. Surprisingly, most people aren't even aware that servers get paid less than minimum wage and that tips are a significant portion of their take home pay. Imagine running yourself into the ground for 6 hours and earning more income from the $5/hr wage than you do in tips, while being verbally abused for anything that isn't perfect. After a while they stop caring, and I don't blame them really.

Be kind to the people who make your dining experience(s) pleasant. After the second or third time of doing so don't be surprised if the quality of your food improves, or if a packed dining room suddenly has a reserved table with your name on it. Kindness begets its own rewards.

Karl,

There are many who see the corruption of society. And as more voices tell the truth the corrupt leaders - the executives and politicians and directors, etc - will be made uncomfortable. But will they change? They will if the pressure of truth is sustained. But do we have the courage to sustain the truth?

Barnhardt has a post today that is a repeat of a post from a decade ago. The situation has only gotten worse.

"If you forced me to distill everything that is wrong with this culture down to one word, to find one word that covered almost every sin in one fell swoop, it would be cowardice. I look at western civilization and I see cowardice EVERYWHERE. It is in the eyes and hearts of every adult. Its stench permeates everything...

The reason we are in this mess, and the reason why I dont see any indication of anything getting any better is because we are indeed a nation, and a civilization, of cowards. I see exactly ZERO willingness by anyone to offer any meaningful resistance to evil. I see zero willingness for anyone to do anything that might result in the least bit of discomfort, loss or material damage to themselves or their estate."

No. If you or I had that kind of power we'd walk too.

I suspect many, if not most people who really are inside for serial murder are taking the fall for richer, better-connected "pillars of the community." Framing the weird guy with no money whom nobody liked in high school, frightening him into confessing, and closing the case closed is much easier than confronting a local dignitary, no matter how much he gives people the creeps.

Since the mask mandate went into effect 2 months ago, Texas has had around 400,000 positives. There were around 200,000 then. No effect, or negative.

The whole thing is a fraud. It is pretty evident that the most susceptible get hit first and it becomes next to nothing. The flu has operated unannounced all year. If you went to the doctor, with the flu, he would give you something. Why nothing, when they have blown this up as the black plague. This is probably less deadly than the Asian and Hong Kong flu and more likely about as deadly as driving.

****erburg is a real mother****er. That lizard looking bastard should eat a bowl of ****. What they are enabling is a threat to the republic. Blame him or not, Trump has been largely disabled by corporate state liars, who fund BLM and control the news. Recall, when Trump said he was taking HCQ, Neal Cavuto said he was going to die.

Why are there 27 deaths in Singapore and 2200 in Harris county Texas? Houston is the medical center of the country, Why no solution?

Trump brought forward ventilators, because the MSM had a microphone in Cuomo's face every day, screaming for them. Trump all but said they were useless in one of his pressers. I don't know that Trump could change this any more than he could have made the Russian collusion lie go away.

The progressives have been trying to kill small business since the days of Woodrow Wilson. They are now trying to finish them off. People are cattle to them. Centralization of everything and the crushing of independent thought are part of the plan. They have been constructively killing the American economy for 100 years.

Karl, what do we do? Armed and unorganized is almost unarmed. Antifa has developed hit squads and they have been funded, likely, in the billions. BLM hides behind race, when they are actually a criminal, not a racial justice organization. Otherwise, they would be burning the teachers union hall, instead of the police station. We already have Civil War. As an example, Antifa and BLM wet after their #1 ass kisser, the Portland mayor. This is going to be genocidal, most likely, if we are going to emerge free.

As for mayors? Mayors are bureaucrats and municipalities are corporations. There really isn't room for a free market or conservative in such a system. We live in a world, where people aren't supposed to die, because people are delusional. The one piece of evidence there is a God is death, after life. That fact will never change.

I turned 65 today. Fittingly, for me, it is a holiday. I probably have 10 to 15 good years left, if I'm lucky. Those are the facts. Of the stated dead, in Texas, roughly 60% are over 70. 1/3 are over 80. That is who dies, in general, this day and time. 81% are over 60. 59% are male, most likely more, in the lower 60 to 70 age bracket. This isn't much different than the normal age distribution of deaths.

The point is, time isn't on my side. I have to ask the question whether I want to be free or a slave. If I was 20, I might play along, thinking things will change, in the future. 10 years, I don't have a future. It is now. This is really a crisis point, for me. I'm watching what is happening. There is no truth in the media. One can only watch and make their own deduction. Killing, isn't a pleasant thought. But, a future under totalitarians isn't either. One wonders how so many ideas can be broadly pushed, under the idea of science, that are patently false? The global warming idea, even, if it was valid, doesn't necessarily imply a bad outcome. Masks and the denial of therapeutics is prima facia evidence they want us under their thumb. I will post this video. As far as friends, they all know where I stand. I have been spreading what you have broadcast for 7 months.

It is now proven without a doubt that once some virus spread has occurred in a population, lockdowns fail to suppress it until there is herd immunity.

A logical question then follows. If lockdowns - the forced isolation of people - dies not stop viral spread, then how will a piece of cloth stop viral spread?

Of course the piece of cloth doesn't stop viral spread. We know that. The question is why are so many "authorities" giving support to make believe?

To be honest tipping is the problem... As the customer I pay for the products in the restaurant case, it's of course a meal...

The cost of that meal would include the cost of doing business such as paying employees....

See there again the restaurant business has everyone convinced that if you stop tipping the prices would go insanely high even though I argue the cost of the meal is already insanely high...

see if we stop tipping it actually would force the employer to cough up more money on the hour for the servers bussers waiters....

where as currently with the tipping system they're basically just getting a free ride off of their customers because I the customer when I tip I'm paying a significant portion of that person's wage given that the state doesn't necessarily make them pay a real minimum wage....

I shouldn't have to pay for the same meal twice that's basically what I'm saying!

Yeah, we're still in SoCal (I know you hate CA with a passion and understandably), and still may move to TN, but from what I'm seeing online and in person when we drove there a month ago, the government is similarly as bad as the others (although perhaps to a lesser degree).

Anyway, looks like there's nowhere to run to.

no I certainly don't need a safe space but you're kind after you've gotten in my face generally require a safe space!
Spare me the buzzword bull****!

did you watch corporate Carlson on the Fox news the other night? Did he talk about safe spaces? Is that where you heard the term and now you think you're cool?
see you're the one making accusations as if I would be the type to need to safe space all because I called you on your ****!

Anyway, Mr fit throwing little baby stuck up customer,

I know the kind of customer you are, big mouth thinks they're all that, thinks the entire world revolves around them and when someone goes to Clue them in, about how that's not how it actually works, then they look down upon those people and say that they was *******s to them, when in reality you barged in strutting your bull**** and you were the *******!!!

It takes a hell of a lot of nerves and patience to deal with about 150 of you in a shift!

You have no Clue! So how you experience other people, is mostly based off whether or not you were a ****head! And your little complaint about how apparently they're some kind of problem to deal with and or experience, yeah you're just whining, so go to your little safe space and go whine some more!
