Rebel Alliance Ground Reports – What’s Your Current COVID Living Status?…

With such incredible disparity between the states of our republic, I’m curious what is the current status of the COVID lifestyle near you.   What is going on in/around your town, city, region or hamlet?

This isn’t just a typical request for ground reports, it’s also a little selfish.  You are helping me with advanced recon for a travel itinerary.  It is quite amazing the scale of difference between states.  The media reports in large generic terms, but the stuff that matters is how it impacts your life; your daily function.  That’s what we are all interested in.

It is quite remarkable how different life amid COVID is within each state, even when two states are right next to each other.  So how is it your area?

    From Weatherford, Tx, near Ft. Worth: Gov. Abbot made an executive order requiring masks be worn…Only if social distancing is not possible. Most people didnt catch that. So just about all places like stores, gas stations and restaurants have signs at the entrance requiring customers to wear masks. Probably 90% of people are wearing masks inside these locations, and take them off as soon as they leave. Some places are lenient with the mask policy while others are militant about it. I saw two different customers get shouted at by a very flamboyant male clerk at a Pilot travel stop near me for not wearing a mask, the “excuse me” and finger snapping on full display. Later that night a pregnant female employee at the same location was not wearing a mask. It seems the political and social views of the person determine whether they support mask wearing or not.

    Funny, contrary to what most would believe about our area we have had what I would call pretty good relations with most of the population. However, human nature does not change and in that respect we are all the same.
    The only companies that have boarded up their shops seem to be places like the Apple Store, full of geniuses that maybe pride themselves with knowing things that we do not? Some other stores who feel liability if they don’t’ will require masks, we oblige out of courtesy to them. (it’s hard to be a small business owner in this environment, “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”)
    There have been a few dust ups, I would not call these demonstrations being born prior to the 60’s, rather 15-20 peeps with signs & generally in the same suburban areas as the apple stores. Go figure.
    We own a franchise and shut down mid March until May 1st. Our agents are independent contractors and come an go in our building at will so not much really changed it just gave some older folks a feeling of comfort. My son is a chef and has continued to work within his company’s various restaurants. Hallelujah! Other children working from home, daughter & husband have been able to make some amazing memories with their children. (Starting to look forward to school!! 👀)
    Banking seems to be an on going problem, some branches of various banks have closed which might be an issue that bears further scrutiny?
    Stores seem to be returning to normal stocking & rates of consumption for now.
    Had dinner out last weekend after long hiatus, was nice!
    Overall feel okay…
    Still, on our knees praying that The Great I Am will sustain us and give us a little more time to sow His seeds of Grace & Deliverance.

    God Bless You And Let His Light Upon You And Give You Peace.

    I reported the other day that my teeny tiny, rural neighborhood had a great 4th of July parade.

    We have a non political Facebook group for information on fires, looking out for mail thief’s, run away lamb ….etc.

    A person joins yesterday and first post ever is a black lives matter protest flyer.

    I told the lady this is a non political group and it’s Blue Lives Matter.

    I asked administrator to delete, but it already was problem.

    I decided to host my own event tonight for supporters of the police and to discuss protecting our neighborhood from violence and deaths associated with BLM protests. I said Delete Me!

    People Karen me and I comment you’re not invited.

    Lots of people agreed with me????

    I managed to get both her post and mine deleted.

    So now I reposted my meeting again, but we’re discussing boat design for a boat race in the creek on my property.

    I’m learning really quick who’s listening to the angels of light and who’s not.

    I live in Colorado With a power hungry liberal socialist governor. We should never have shut down in the 1st place but he is still trying to keep everyone from opening up completely when there’s absolutely no reason not to. Most people don’t wear masks but of course you have your obedient socialists who do even outside riding their bicycles!

    Never wore a mask except when I took my wife to the ER for a possible foot fracture (it wasn’t), and being in a hospital for that short of time was probably a good idea. We had been in Florida for nearly six months before the start of this madness. When we left it was opening up. Restaurants were distancing the tables and booths and the staff usually wore masks.

    (I have been fortunate in not having had the flu for years and I have never had the flu shot. I was convinced of that when over all those years co workers, who did get the shot, always got sick.)

    Returned to the land of Lincoln and everything was shut down. They allowed outside seating in restaurant parking lots. Great to be exposed to insects drawn by garbage and uneaten food plus auto and truck exhaust.

    Went to a grocery store and was the only one without a mask. It was like “Day of the Living Dead” where I was the only one not a zombie. No one said anything. There were people with their mask down around their neck or not covering their nose if they had it on.

    We go to Indiana to shop and eat. (By the way gas in Illinois where we live is $2.45 a gallon. In Indiana just across the border it’s $1.98.)

    There are consequences with wearing a mask as many have stated on these pages during this fiasco.

    You need to wash you hands before and after putting on a mask and again after taking it off.

    Your eyes are always exposed.

    Your clothes are as well.

    If the mask is a cloth or makeshift one (I’ve seen knitted ones) it is not safe (but it does satisfy mandatory use ).

    OSHA has criteria for mask wearing and it stresses the reduction of oxygen intake that results, which can occur within five minutes of putting a mask on. We’re not supposed to have a petry dish on our face.

    If its mandatory to wear a mask on the job, your company has a legal liability if usage makes you sick or weakens your immune system.

    Governors and mayors are practicing medicine without a license.

    How many people now counted as a positive have always worn a mask? Had the shot? In nursing homes I would expect the flu shot is provided to all. If wearing the mask all day the inmates are hurting themselves. Not seeing family and loved ones causes depression, which also leads to loss of immunity and many are already health compromised. Five states accounted for many of them dying.

    Social distancing of six feet was thought up by a high school student in 2005 who mentioned it to her father . He worked I believe in a federal medical lab and that’s as far as the science goes for that. He thought that a good idea.

    Remember Fauci first said masks were not needed.. Might have been the only time he was honest
    (or was machevelian).

    East Bay Area, across the bridge from San Francisco; Berkeley and Oakland are hot-beds of anarchy, always. Go through the tunnel to “East Bay Cities”, Contra Costa County, (Orinda, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Concord, Alamo, Danville, San Ramon) relatively up-scale and most wearing masks, keeping social distance, “locked down”. Many restaurants curb-side, then opened July 1, then closed because of weekend surge. Grocery and Mega-box stores installed plastic shields between customers and clerks. Many very nice Airbnb places in this area, if you need lodging.

  8. Kentucky has a Governor that is toying with mask mandate. He is doing everything he can to keep the state in a state of emergency so he can continue to invoke KRS 39 A which gives him unrestricted authority to executive order whatever he pleases. The state legislature which is strongly conservative has been dismissed from session and he refuses to call them back in to session bc there is a bill with bipartisan support that will strictly limit his executive powers if a state of emergency lasts more than 2 weeks. The patriots are beginning to coalesce… He speaks for an hour a day to go on about the 1 new death in KY warrants the whole state being under a state of emergency. He intends to do this till Jan 5 when the legislature is back in session when the first bill presented will be the one to strip him of this unchecked power. It will likely be veto proof. For now he is power drunk. God help us.

    I have some health issues and so do some family members, so I’ll wear the mask. I don’t think it ought to be required though. Gov. Kelly wants to get the case numbers down or we might have to cancel school again. Most businesses are open but with some restriction on bars, hair salons, ect.

        Kris Kobach was the Republican candidate. He was too conservative for more moderate Republicans. We had several years of Sam Brownback, who was sharply to the right. Laura Kelly, although a Democrat, was well liked. She was successful at painting Kobach as another Brownback, who was not a popular governer due to his severe budget cuts.

        I would also add that Kansas is kind of pink. Right leaning, yes. But we have our blue areas in urban areas and university towns, just like many states.

Contact tracers are showing up to medical offices demanding names and contact numbers of all patients visiting when one patient was positive for Covid. Then for 2 weeks they make very one on that list stay home whether they are positive or not or symptomatic or not, calling and/or visiting daily. I turn my phone off when I leave my house now.

  13. Mobile, Al here. I am ready to take out a contract on Dr. Fauci and Senator Doug Jones. Fauci is worried about the uptick in positive cases so he had a conference call with Jones. They are pushing the fear porn with the aid of the local news people. Once in a while the news will mention the death rate is down. The political adds are obnoxious. grocery stores open, all senior centers closed. Big box stores all open and mostly normal.

    Gwinnett County, GA
    Governor Kemp has stated on several occasions that he will not mandate masks. He is also spending a lot of time encouraging people to wear masks. IMO, this is how it should be handled.

    I haven’t seen a single place of business requiring masks. I wear one when in a very crowded place, like the grocery or Target, but there are plenty of people going without masks too. I’d say it’s close to 50/50. In less crowded places, like Ace hardware or the auto store virtually noone wears masks, and I don’t either.

    My employer, a large #BLM supporting engineering company, is requiring all employees to wear masks at all times while in the office, even if you’re the only person in the area. It’s obnoxious and they’re waaaaay too on board with all the PC virtue signaling going on.

    The only time I’ve seen anyone speaking to someone else about whether or not they were wearing a mask out in public is at the gas station I frequent where the owner is trying to sell them lol. He’s a friendly guy and isn’t pushy or condescending or anything. I get the sense he’s only doing it for the $$$.

    Reporting from The People’s Republic of New Mexico…masks mandatory in all public places (outdoors included) AND $100 fine if you get caught without one. The sign at the Sonic drive in today stated that a mask must be worn IN YOUR CAR when the carhop approaches with your food. No, I’m not joking…and I’m not doing it. Gov Lujan-Grisham has threatened all NM businesses with fines if they do not comply with her mandate and force the public to wear masks. Local grocery store (Kroger) now has mask police stationed at each entrance to stop those who attempt to enter without one. This is complete and utter insanity. Lord, help us.

What’s most disheartening to me is seeing how many people comply with a mandate not backed by law or science. God help us.

    WNC here. Very strong connections in 6 counties And my hobby sees me talking with people from Charlotte to Cherokee to the western half of the Virginia line.

    Locals are largely ignoring Roy Stupor. Big corporations and businesses owned by outta state and outta country people are really posting lots of mean bossy signage to try to scare folks. Most of the local owned businesses have little to no signage. Mask wearing is maybe around 50-65 % in the scary sign businesses and 0 to 40 % in the local owned businesses. Almost no one is wearing masks outdoors. Disclaimer; I haven’t tried big box retail and grocery. Don’t care for them to start with.

    Restaurants all seem to be open but I don’t know how things are going. Haven’t been out to eat in a long time.

    Traffic is about up to 80-90 % of normal.

    Consensus among natives seems to be Roy Cooper can kiss our country asp. He’s sealed his fate as a one term governor. Most people would vote for Satan over Roy now.

    Rumors are being pushed by state employees the Roy Boy is going back to full lockdown soon because he knows he’s lost re-election anyways and wants to build up his cred with the commies and punish the peons. The business I have talked to say they will ignore him. We have already decided to ignore and go to court if messed with.

    Consensus also seems to be that the communists called Democrat have finally went too far. Also that they will try to cheat Trump out of the election and that if they somehow do, we’ll have no choice but to use the 2nd to re-gain all the others and restore The Republic.

    Nobody wants that, but it seems that almost everyone I talk to is preparing for it.

The people you speak of I only see in those counties or in the “foreigner communities”, the transplant communities.

      P.S. The only business I have seen actually fully enforcing the mask wearing is the bank. Since they have a drive-up window and have pre-approved my 3/16″ holes mesh “mask” if I do need to actually come in for some reason, it’s of no concern. A very few businesses are forcing only employees to wear a mask. But as I said, I haven’t tried the huge corporate stores or restaurants.

    I’m in sunny Colorado where the beer is cheap (over 200 craft and micro breweries), you get drunk quicker (because of our elevation, average elevation is highest in the nation, sun is stronger) and pot is legal (has caused lots of problems). It’s a party and outdoor lifestyle place. 4 national parks, 42 state parks, 11 national forests, 2 national grasslands and 8 wildlife refuge areas.

    We’ve been invaded by leftists, but genuine Coloradans are, for the most part, individualistic, conservative and don’t like to be told what to do. We’ve had tomato wars vs. Texas (Keep Colorado Beautiful, Put a Texan on a Bus), Frozen Dead Guy Days, Polar Plunge, Madam Lou Bunch Days with bed races, Cowboy Downhill Skiing, biggest Zombie Crawl in the nation. Heck, we’ll celebrate anything. Unofficial state motto is “Hold my beer and watch this” whether we’re being pulled by a truck and waterskiing down a water filled ditch or climbing illegally at midnight on Red Rocks Ampitheater., or other things I will not mention on any public forum. Right from the start in March of flatten the curve people were defying authorities and getting into the back country to ski.

    I’m about 20 miles north of Denver, county is way too blue now, but Denver is the epicenter of the leftists, much of the state is still red. There’s a lot more resistance since the virus gave our overlords the false impression they could run our lives. Recent primary showed huge numbers for POTUS, Bernie won dem primary and Biden was a lame 2nd.

    No matter what edicts leftist governor Polis (born in Boulder to ’60s peace protesters) throws down, most of us will do what we want. Hardly anyone wearing masks here but I’m sure ite a different story in Denver and Boulder.

    I live in Culver City, California, which is a incorporated city mostly surrounded by the City of Los Angeles (with some small portions bordering unincorporated parts of LA County. CC is one of three “island” cities on the Westside of LA, all similarly surrounded by LA City; the other two being more famous: Santa Monica (which has a beach), and Beverly Hills (which does not). CC has two large film studios, one of which (formerly MGM) is where the Wizard of Oz was filmed; the other (Culver Studios) is where Gone with the Wind was filmed… both are now owned by Sony Pictures.

    I do NOT wear a mask in public, unless required to on entering stores, etc. Even inside stores, I do NOT cover my nose. I occasionally get verbally harassed people, but never by LE. If I am ever questioned by LE, I will simply and truthfully say that I never received any official notice of any “law” or “order” from Gov. Newsom or other official requiring me to wear a mask… I’ve received some unsolicited notices on my cell phone, but I cannot verify their source and simply delete them, and I know of no law requiring me to comply with anything on my cell phone. LA Mayor Garcetti can do whatever he wants, but it does not apply within Culver City. I’ve never heard of anything coming out of the City of Culver City regarding masks.

    Moreover, I would say that when I’m out and about, approximately HALF of the people I see are NOT wearing masks; and a smaller percentage are wearing masks that merely covering their chins. I also wear a red MAGA hat when I’m out, which occasionally triggers a sneer, but far more often attracts friendly conversations initiated by Trump supporters who say, “I like your hat,” and praise me for my courage to wear it. There are PLENTY of people here in the Democrat-infested Westside of LA who support our president. They are in varying stages of awareness about the deep state, and people often ask me how they can learn more. I often point them to this site. These people also come from every age group (although I rarely have occasion to talk with teens).

    Nantucket MA still more strict than the rest of MA. Now there are signs downtown which let you know where you have to wear a face mask. Which is pretty much everywhere. There is a $300 fine for violators. Well yesterday the first fine was imposed. Someone rented a house to a bunch of people and the people were violating the face mask rule. I am assuming this house was in town in the historic district. So they imposed a fine on the HOMEOWNER, not the knucklehead renters in violation. Homeowner was not even there. Not sure if the fine was per person. There is something really messed up about this.

    Southern Indiana. Haven’t met anyone taking the WuFlu seriously. Things are pretty much back to normal. Other than employees, not many people are wearing masks. No one is staying 6 feet apart or following any of the directional signs. Restaurants are at about 1/2 to 3/4 capacity and some hair/nail saloons are still requiring reservations. Unfortunately, it looks like there are quite a few small businesses that have not been able to reopen.

    In Indianapolis, where our children live, is not as same. The D Mayor has decreed that on the 9th, masks become mandatory. Many more people are distancing and wearing masks. About 1/2 of the restaurants are open with many fast food places still not providing eatin space. Medical buildings are the worst with checkpoints inside the lobbies. Temps and masks are mandatory. The protest/riots have stopped but who knows if/when that will change.

    Our Rino governor didn’t move the state to Stage 5 last weekend as promised. He made a new stage 4.5 that expires on July 19th but at least he didn’t move us backwards. The reason given was a small uptick in hospital admits due to covid. They have an education taskforce who are still talking about how schools will proceed. The Indiana State Fair has been canceled except for a very limited amount of H4 exhibitions. Apparently there was a NOOSECAR race at IMS on the 4th but the Indy 500 was delayed until late August.

    The last time we’ve had a day with more than 10 deaths was June 26th. Testing appears to have peaked in mid-June and is slowly declining. The number of positive cases has been up and down for several weeks. It appears, without crunching the numbers, that more of the people being tested are positive. There isn’t enough data to tell what’s driving that but our hospitalizations and deaths are consistently low.

    Our State Health Commissioner, Dr. Box, has to be a D. She keeps talking about a new normal and doesn’t foresee us ever going back to our “old normal.” All in all, we’re doing better than a lot of our neighbors but we’d be back to our old normal with truly conservative leadership.

    Weak leadership from our side, it is like one party states such as CA, IL, NY, etc. We are witnessing a cultural meltdown and communist revolution, whitewashing of history. We have the most history in the Union so if we go the country is to follow.

    We are in phase 3 meaning absolutely nothing since the mask mandate is a joke. Governor more concerned about his white guilt communist revolution. No timeliness for phase 4. Don’t think he will go to phase 4 in the next calendar year, our Newsome.

    GA feels like we’re back to normal. Everything is open and people are out and about (most Georgians didn’t follow the stay at home rules anyway). I go out to eat regularly and have never had a problem. The restaurants are 100% open but I haven’t seen them filled to 100% yet. I think a lot of people are still doing takeout. I will say this, when we first opened back up and my husband and I would go out to eat, surprisingly, the people who were eating out were on the older side (60+) which I thought was interesting since the virus is said to affect the elderly. You would not know it from going out to eat. Maybe people just wanted to go out again–LIVE. Being forced to stay home when you are healthy feels like a kind of death to me. I love seeing full parking lots again.

    On the mask issue, we have no mandates yet but they are pushing it relentlessly in the media ALL THE TIME. It’s weird, the longer this goes on, the further we’re away from it being a serious thing, the more masks I’m seeing–so the relentless fear mongering works! Sadly. I forget this is the new normal until I go out and see all the masked people. I went to a Publix today and I was one of about 5 people who were unmasked in the store. It’s so hot here that I can’t see how sweating profusely and wiping at the mask can be sanitary or helpful. At the park there are still people JOGGING in the 90+ heat and 100% humidity. It’s difficult to breathe without the mask so I don’t know how they do it. I see more black people wearing masks than white people, but it’s been that way since the beginning. White folks are wearing them more now for some reason.

    They are doing massive free testing here and there are lines of people and cars waiting to get tested. This is why our numbers are up. I think people are being “encouraged” to test to keep the numbers up and the fear mongering in place.

    I went to the Mall a couple of weeks ago and it was as busy as Christmas time. We have lots of those weird sticker rules that were implemented long after the virus was a real problem but lots of us ignore them.

    I have a daughter who lives in a democrat state who is moving home after 5 years because of this. It’s been hard for her to be in a tiny apartment on lock down for a long period of time (working from the apartment). She told me that at one time she thought she could be happy living in a condo in the city, but after this experience she just wants to have a home with some land so she can move around in freedom. What she loved about living there was taken away–the bars, restaurants, concerts, even hiking at one point was not permitted). This has damaged a lot of young people and I’m very angry at what has been done to our children and young people during this. The took young, healthy people and shut down their lives and isolated them. It’s unforgivable. It did not have to be this way.

  28. Southeast Louisiana here- North of the Lake Pontchartrain, to be exact- With the exception of NOLA & Baton Rouge, its mostly conservative. Most businesses are open to at least 50% capacity & most have masks signs up, but its not mandatory or enforced. I’d say about half of the patrons wear them. I don’t. In talking with people, in general, strangers as well as the people I associate with, most people go back & forth from, “This is ridiculous, I’m over it” to “I believe the virus is real & I don’t want to get it”. There are no protests/riots here, they wouldn’t be tolerated well. I would venture to say that the majority support Pres Trump, but just don’t advertise it. I wear my MAGA hat when I feel like it, & haven’t been confronted yet. People are respectful & polite of others political beliefs, except for the occasional outspoken anti-Trumper, I also believe that many conservatives don’t understand the seriousness of whats happened or if they do, they don’t want to talk about it, publicly. I would like to scream it from the rooftops- quite honestly, Thank you for all that you’re doing and have done, Sundance. You are a treasure, and as Ive said on many platforms, if I felt like the Pulitzer prize meant anything anymore, Id love to see you receive it for your excellence in investigative journalism. You’ve made so many discoveries over the years, & I only wish Breitbart was here to see it, He would be SO very proud. If you come my way, there are several of us that would do anything we could to help you, or meet up with you, Family members have been in office in the past- Republican, at state levels, and I’m certain they’d be honored to meet you, as well, My twitter handle is @truthpirate4Rt- Message me anytime, Godspeed, my friend,

      NW LA., here – and it’s about the same. I don’t wear a mask and haven’t been Karened yet, but I think the petty little dem mayor of S’port is going to mandate masks everywhere in his domain sometime today. Fine. Shreveport can have him – but from what I’ve witnessed of the people there he’s gonna play hell enforcing it. Same goes for Bel Edwards if he does the same in his speech later today.

    From a blue state (can’t disclose), it’s a mixed bag:
    –the myrmidons/snobs who’ll do and wear whatever because they’ve been successfully brainwashed by the Chi-Com scare tactics of the wannabe Fuhrers, Himmlers, gestapo and their ilk. [ I mean no disrespect or insensitivity toward my Jewish brethren. I know what I’m talking about.] Somehow these vermin are still convincing people that they know-it-all When in fact, they’re making punks out of them.
    –those who are genuinely fearful and just want to do-and wear, the right thing but would probably be in the third category below if they really took the time to look at ALL the facts and took the time to think for Themselves
    –those who pretty much say, “GFY” (T2020-that was a good one!), go about their daily lives–and look pretty happy and healthy doing so. They’re going to parks, teaching their little ones how to ride a bike, going for walks and bike rides, a lot of dining–even if alfresco. And in that vein, I see positive signs of recovery, meaning a return to common sense: on the store shelves, there are masks and a lot of hand sanitizer and the like. As if to say, “I’m/we’re on to you, Bastards. You’re not going to scare the crap out of me/us.”

      Every time I get in a conversation with someone who actually believes they will get or die from the virus, I trot out the statistics straight from the CDC dashboard and break down the numbers for them.

      I think in some cases, my simple certainty at the age of 67 that we have nothing to fear, is what persuades them. It’s the first time they’ve even heard it!

  30. Southern Oregon – Jackson County (Medford is largest city)
    On March 8, 2020, Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency and non-essential businesses were shut down. Hairdressers, Barbers, bars, restaurants are examples of places that closed completely. Other businesses (grocery stores, gun stores, etc.) deemed essential were open but with distancing rules and spot checks by OSHA. Some restaurants that could provide takeaway did that, again with OSHA spot checks. The small businesses that I frequented that wanted to stay open applied for PPP funds, but none of them received them. A month after the initial emergency declaration, Gov. Brown signed an Executive Order to extend the emergency – without getting approval by the Oregon House/Senate. In May, as the weather improved, locals started hiking, biking, etc. By June, people’s masks were gone, and people were looking forward to Summer. Sorry… not so fast, Oregonians! On July 1, Gov. Brown instituted a statewide mandatory mask rule for indoor spaces. Generally, Southern Oregon has not been hit hard with the virus. Here are the numbers:
    6.9 COVID-19 cases per 10,000 people.
    • 152 COVID-19 cases
    • 77 COVID-19 recovered cases (51% recovered)
    • 0 COVID-19 deaths (0% died)
    • 138 positive COVID-19 tests (1% positive)
    • 13,094 negative COVID-19 tests (99% negative)
    • 13,232 total tests (597.9 tests per 10,000 people)

    • 221,290 total population

    Melbourne, Australia.
    we’ve just gone back down into Stage 3 restrictive lockdown for SIX weeks. We can only go out for: food, medical care, physical exercise (locally), work/education (where you can’t work from home).
    If the police catch you outside of your home for anything other than those four reasons, AUD$1600 fine for individuals, and thousands more for businesses. There isn’t a mandate to wear masks, but given that I live in the state of Victoria (aka the socialist capital of Australia), I wouldn’t be surprised if that doesn’t get implemented soon. Some people choose to wear masks though.

    Only three weeks earlier we’d exited from Stage 3 restrictions: businesses were starting to re-open, we could go to Church again, could gather at homes of friends/family – all within certain limitations. During this re-opening phase, we had a spike in infections in specific suburbs of Melbourne – but no corresponding spike in deaths (thank God) – and the government decided to shut us down again.

    This is nothing short of madness. Going into lockdown didn’t do anything except ruin small business, cause huge strain on families, and weaken everyone’s immune systems. We were told that this was necessary to ‘flatten the curve’ so we wouldn’t overwhelm our health systems and would give them time to prepare. We did that, and all we heard from the government and their disgusting media allies during that stage that re-opening would risk a ‘second wave’. Well of course it would. The whole purpose of our initial lock down wasn’t to prevent infections, but to prevent our healthcare systems from being overwhelmed. We spend over a month in restrictive lock down, our immune systems are weakened, and then everyone wonders why people start getting sick? The government moved the goal posts, changed the narrative. First ‘flatten the curve’, then ‘avoid a second wave’, now we ‘won’t be safe until there’s a cure’. So once this six weeks is over, and we venture out again – if there’s another spike, will they lock us up again?

    We had 191 new infections since we slowly started to re-open, and they’ve now locked those who reside in ‘the towers’ (government high-rise housing) into their housing towers, and forced the rest of metropolitan Melbourne back into restrictive lock down. And for what? This virus is here. Let’s protect those who are most at risk, and figure out how to get the hell on with our lives.

      The Arizona Republic is not accurate. How unusual! /sarc. I googled Covid 19 and Race and found this article that is researched state by state from CDC statistics and individual State Department of Health Service statistics. It showed dramatically high numbers in Arizona for Native Americans while every other race was relatively low. This tallies with anecdotal evidence from friends in Flagstaff and my Native American niece’s experience with hospitals in Flagstaff and Cottonwood. Other “Hot”spots are Yuma and Nogales. There are maps online that show cases/deaths by Zip code for Arizona. (Or there were a few days ago.)

      It looks to me that someone or the media has decided not to research the truth to somehow control the public’s reaction in Arizona. (Could this be all about the election because we are a swing state and if McSally loses, it could swing the Senate for the democrats?)

    I was just watching local news on tv. Cochise County in the far southeast corner of AZ held a public vote on whether to mask or not. The residents voted against masking. The sheriff of Cochise County is a true conservative. Lots of ranchers, military base and military families, artsy-weird but independent Bisbee, and retired folks down there. So, no masking and apparently very few Karen’s and Chads!

    PRIMA restaurant in Walnut Creek, CA, closes after 43 years, and New York hit a 28-year high for shootings. These disparate occurrences reveal massive changes.

    A top special event restaurant in a prime, centrally located suburb couldn’t weather Governor Newsom’s Draconian Covid policies and our unspoken cultural Civil War. I’m sure the owners foresaw another 6 months, or more, of leadership uncertainty despite an over 90% reduction in daily Covid deaths.

    New York suffers from socialist Mayor deBlasio, criminal “bond reform”, the Covid shutdown and Marxist BLM movement. I’m sure Atlanta, Seattle, and others are seeing similiar crime records.

    Super safe Walnut Creek has had 3 daylight shootings in one month. In 30 years I can’t recall ONE shooting in Walnut Creek! (One was a BLM drive by; yesterday a middle-of-the-day shooting, on a major street, by a Latino young man. In contiguous suburbs the past year: a couple shot in the drive thru in Moraga; and several Oakland residents killed in a “mansion party” in Orinda rented off of Airbnb. Ahh, diversity!)

    Sky high San Francisco rents have dropped 12%. Lots of rumblings Covid19 may have accelerated the work-from-home push.

    Californians itching to get out. I went to my first outdoor Happy Hour. Nice & odd at the same time. I tipped 250% of normal.

    California’s Caltrans finally starting some small highway projects months after Governor DeSantis in Florida. 24 Hour Fitness has filed for bankruptcy. Local libraries anticipating a huge reduction in hours due to funding reductions.

    A friend I’ve known for decades is moving to Utah. Hard-working sales professional with a six figure income who can’t afford a home in a safe, central location. For a city boy, that’s a big change.

Not even in hotels, stores and restaurants. Pretty much the only ones wearing them are servers at restaurants.

    In Salem, Oregon, masks became a requirement on June 24, in public places. Trader Joe’s lines people up six-feet apart to enter the store. I only wear a mask in public places, never outside or around my yard. Neither do my neighbors. The bars aren’t acting as mask police and mist patrons do not wear masks (How can you to eat and drink?). Most people see the mask gig as a fraud.


  41. West of Las Vegas in Pahrump, Nevada. Democrat governor issued a statewide mask mandate last week. Stores require masks now. Restaurants and bars ask to see your mask, but don’t require using them. I don’t know about the casinos because I don’t gamble. Lots of unhealthy looking old people here taking precautions (as they should). The younger people seem willing to comply.

    Moving on to my neck of the woods – NC, north of Charlotte…

    …I don’t get out much, but have noticed a shift toward conformity with the recent (lib-turd) governor’s ordinances. Previously only certain stores required masks (Costco being the one I’m most familiar with). Since June 25th, “phase 2” was extended and masks were made mandatory in all public areas. Stores started displaying signs requirements masks and social-distancing . When these new ordinances first hit a couple weeks back, it seemed the vast majority conformed. Now I see more and more citizens (primarily older and younger) ignoring the masks and simply staying clear of others. Common sense really.

    There have been a few BLM protests over the past couple months, but not rising to the level of stupidity seen in the blue wastelands like Chi-raq, NYC, LA and Seattle.

    North Phoenix (Peoria, AZ)
    Went to Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Sprouts, and Safeway on Monday July 6th without a mask.
    Target; everyone else wearing masks, one store employee offered us masks, we declined, no further issue.
    Bed Bath and Beyond; everyone else in masks, we were double teamed by a customer and employee concurrently for not wearing a mask. We claimed the ADA Medical exemption and I explained having been an engineer and scientist in medical microelectronics for 30 years that masks provide limited if any protection whatsoever, they backed off and no further issue.
    Sprouts; everyone else wearing masks, no challenge or issue from anyone.
    Safeway; all but one woman and her two kids were wearing masks, some mask wearers had them pulled down, no challenge or issue from anyone.

    My scientific analysis of mask efficacy below.

    Mask Math:

    Let (A) equal the size of a virus which is ~0.25 micron (0.00000984 inches) in diameter.

    Let (B) equal the spacing between threads of mask fabric which is ~1.0 micron (0.0000394 inches).

    Dividing thread spacing by virus diameter we get,

    B / A = 4

    Mathematically, this means the spacing between fabric threads is 4 times larger than the virus!

    To make the above more clear:

    Imagine the virus as a typical mosquito which is ~0.25 +/- 0.05 inches (1/4 inch).

    Therefore, since the spacing between threads of mask fabric is 4 times larger than the virus, it would scale to ~1.0 +/- 0.2 inches (1 inch), or about the size of chicken wire.

    So, could someone explain how chicken wire prevents mosquito bites?

  48. Northern VA – masks required, but I don’t wear one. Some stores have mask “police” at the door, but most don’t challenge you if you don’t have one on. Northern VA opening up phases lagged behind the rest of VA because of the blue libs fear mongering. Arlington schools are going to either a hybrid (2-3 days in-person) or full remote learning. Its total crap.


  49. I live in the heart of OKC and where I live I swear it’s a 50/50 white to black ratio. I’ve noticed that basically Democrats all wear masks, thus black people are by and large walking around masked up. White older people out in public are as well. But the younger white folks are not. Or maybe only in certain businesses.

    I went to a buffet yesterday and a woman was in there acting like she was afraid to pick from the buffet because of covid so she wanted food made fresh especially for her. Only a Democrat could try to use covid to cheat on the buffet.

    The fascinating thing is a large chunk are wearing masks off and on – and it does not seem to do any good in terms of the spread. As per usual the alarmist and weaponizing Democrats want to pretend like people are not wearing masks, but they are, and it’s still spreading.

    My view is we need to just accept this now as apart of our life. It’s not going away and we’re just going to have to live with it. The recent growth “in cases” shows that we test more and that the original shutdown was a total waste and only prolonged this entire event.

      So how are they handling buffets? Our favorite restaurant here in town is a Chinese (ha!) buffet, and like a lot of other restaurants they haven’t opened back up yet.

But I don’t. Instead, what I usually do it send a private message and ask my friend what they think. Sometimes they’re like “Say whatever you want, that person is an idiot anyway.” But other times it’s “Yeah, probably best not to say anything, because that person is a real-life friend I’ve known for decades, and they’re not all there.”
