    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/08/july-8th-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1266/comment-page-1/#comment-8450072)

    Note: Most of the WBTW related social media accounts are covering coronavirus, politics, or illegal alien crimes. We will probably be in a quiet period regarding wall content until the next project(s) are near completion.
    The praises (much of which are older news) have been provided for those who wish to give thanks for them before praying for the wall prayer requests. I may add to, trim back, or simplify from time to time as projects/events progress or come to completion. If there is any new wall news I’ll list them in the update below. Otherwise, feel free to page down or scroll past.
    – – – – –
    Tuesday night update – 7/7/20 – (See link above.)

    ***Reminder: Tomorrow (Wed.) – “Status conference” about Project 2 in Judge Randy Crane’s court (Texas).

    – Article: Palmer Luckey’s startup will build a ‘virtual’ border wall
    – CBP Press release: CBP’s Autonomous Surveillance Towers Declared a Program of Record along the Southwest Border
    – 7 photos related to Anduril Industries’ solar-powered mobile surveillance tower.

    – – – – –
    Wednesday night update – 7/8/20

    – Just posting the prayer post today.

    – – – – –
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… WBTW/Fisher Industries was able to build a half mile wall up the side of a mountain in 11 days (with zero safety incidents), cutting off 19 major drug cartel trails, and closing off one of the worst areas along the border… (Sunland Park, NM)
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall & Fisher industries project while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    Fisher receives $268M; another $132M could be added if all options in contract are exercised, totaling $400M… or $8.6 to $13M per mile)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.
    Project: Yuma (Wellton Station) Border Wall System

    ***Praise: (12/4/19)… Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House.
    ***Praise: While the Temporary Restraining Order(s) were in place, Fisher Industries and crews were still able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing to Dec 12th (after which they were off for the holidays).
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Judge Crane lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher was able to continue to “shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.”
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge Crane lifted/removed the TROs from both the Federal government’s lawsuit (on behalf of the IBWC) and the North American Butterfly Association’s lawsuit (on behalf of Marianna Trevino-Wright’s National Butterfly Center) against Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 2 complete: Feb 17)… Fisher Industries was able to build 3.5 miles of wall along the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas. Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the floodplain.

    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE’s procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (5/6/20)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $1.28B border wall contract to build 42 miles of wall in southern Arizona, most of which will run from Nogales to the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation. It’s the largest border wall contract that’s ever been awarded. The project includes seven (or 8?) segments and will be painted black.
    Project: Tucson Package 3, (Complex terrain, which includes rugged mountains and water crossings)
    ***PRAISE: (6/11/20)… Foreman Mike stated that Fisher Industries now has ~95 miles of border wall contracts out of the 450. (Of the 95, only ~73 miles are accounted for in the federal awards we know about, which leaves ~21 miles from contract(s) we do not yet know about.)

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name (& according to Your will):
    – for safety, health, and good weather for the work crews as they continue working on WBTW’s private projects… as well as Fisher’s Federal 7.6M/800 foot contract, the 400M/31 mile contract, the 1.28B/42 mile contract for border wall, and any other projects they may be working on; that Fisher would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.
    – that Fisher would be able to safely and smoothly transition(scale up w/ equipment & training of work crews) to be able to build 1+(to 2?) miles of wall per day.
    (Tommy Fisher has previously stated that, given a large enough project, they would be able to build 1 mile of wall per day within 3 months. So this process may have started as early as mid-April or May 6th… and will possibly be ramped up by mid-August??? Just a guess…)

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned. (Backstory/timeline)
    ***Praise: (4/15/19)… Fisher Industries has been awarded a 7.6M contract modification to build 800 linear feet of 30-foot bollard barrier while the original 400M contract is still under review by the DoD IG’s office. My guess is this will give further evidence to the IG that Fisher Industries was justified in receiving the original 400M contract. (Details)
    (Update: Fisher has built well beyond the initial 800 feet.)
    ***Praise:… Looks like work has already begun on this 31 mile project, despite the ongoing audit. Photos showing well over 800 feet of wall, started appearing around the end of April. No official word yet though.

    – for WBTW/Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that both sides would be able to resolve any issues and the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (May 6)… Positive developments in today’s hearing.
    “Warner and Courtois sounded cautiously optimistic that engineers could work out any remaining problems.”
    “In the meantime, the IBWC and Fisher Industries will review the hydraulic analysis.”
    “Engineers with the United States section of the IBWC also sent hydraulic models to their counterparts in Mexico, who may offer comments or objections.”
    “Attorney Javier Peña, who represents the butterfly association, said his client wanted to independently review the hydraulic model.”
    “U.S. District Judge Randy Crane agreed to schedule a status conference in 60 days.”
    – for the next “status conference” on Wednesday, July 8.

    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. (They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking for a solar LED security lighting manufacturer or supplier.)
    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill, HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    ***Praise: (Feb 6)… The bill passed AZ house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; and that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction/salvation(through faith in Christ Jesus) for the work crews, security personnel, legal teams, CBP, DHS, Army, National Guard and all involved in WBTW/Fisher Industries private or federal projects; and for WBTW/Fisher Industries as they work with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – (May 29 – CBP notice)… for Fisher to come up with innovative solutions or improvements requested by CBP “related to the anti-climb/anti-cut features of the border wall” (Deadline: June 12)
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)

    – that Project 2’s wall will prove that the design is sound and that WBTW/Fisher Industries are capable of safely and effectively building it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW &/or Fisher Industries to build 250+ miles of wall on Private Property in Texas
    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.

    🌟 “The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you must be that you must keep pushing ahead. Because it’s the outsiders who change the world and will make a real and lasting difference. Nothing worth doing ever came easy. Treat the word impossible as nothing more than motivation.” ~ President Donald J. Trump 🌟

      There was an article on TCTH last week that talked about the fact that European countries are using a different level of specificity to determine “positive” case and that is why their numbers are so much lower. The only count it if COVID is found in the first 25-30 “cycles” of the PRC test whereas in the US, our labs will re-run it through up to 45 “cycles” in order to get a positive result.

      From President Trump’s tweet posted by citizen817: “May cut off funding if not open!”

      Kayleigh covered this a couple of times in the presser yesterday. President Trump plans to increase – not decrease, increase – funding, but it will be directed to the kids.

      The Press Corpse totally missed this in their attempt to paint Orange Man Bad and Coercive and Mean and Hates Kids and is Abusing His Power.

      Why give money to a closed school? However, give the money to the students and let them find a school that is open. Most will see President Trump as being right.

      It will be an end run around the iron grip of public education and effectively usher in school choice.

      Also, the closed schools are going to create a huge rumble and grumble from taxpayers. Taxpayers will see it the same way. Why are they giving money to closed schools? “Open the schools or give us back our money!”

      Can you imagine the vote on an emergency school levy to make up the shortfall of Federal dollars because the school is closed? Methinks the “Yes” votes would be few and far in between.

    Below is a message I sent to whitehouse.gov in the hope that we can get some help here. I’m also going to send it out to as many people who I think may be able to get the word out as possible. Next time it could be your hometown.

    There is going to be a massive protest in my small town this Sunday, 7-12-20. It is being put on by the same group that instigated the riots and violence in Minneapolis & Charlottesville. We have a very small police department and their entire plan is to tell the downtown businesses to board up and they will then stand down and hope for the best. We have a Soros-funded DA, so no rioters or looters will be prosecuted and anybody who defends themselves or their property from the mob will be prosecuted. We desperately need federal help, either in the form of troops or undercover federal officers that can infiltrate the mob, arrest and prosecute the rioters for federal crimes. This is extremely urgent. The mob has declared our peaceful little town to be a “bastion of white supremacy”. I have lived here for 27 years and it is nothing of the sort. Also, keep in mind that nothing happened here, there was no police brutality, no violence whatsoever. Now our town is being threatened.

Now, all that goes out the window if they come near me or any of my kids’ houses. Fortunately, none of our properties are any closer that a mile from downtown. I gave my kids explicit instructions to stay the hell away from downtown on Sunday. I’m not about to take on thousands of people, the police and the DA.

      Another chance we may win more Dems and California for President Trump.

      Can the townfolks, like the South Phillies did recently, come out and chase them away claiming the town is close due to “Quarrantine” or “Incoming Bubonic Plague” something? May this Plot fizzle out before it gets started.

      It’s not very proactive … but can you attend the riot and take lots of pictures of rioters’ faces? Because that will be incredibly helpful if they do damage. It’s why the DC rioters were indicted. The rioters and their enablers are always the ones shoving cameras into peoples’ faces. It’s one of their classic intimidation tactics. We MUST do the same to them.

        The police chief doesn’t want to have a large force at the riot because it will upset the rioters. But law-abiding citizens and business owners are prevented from operating normally:

        We will recommend that the Farmer’s Market not take place as we cannot always predict whether any counter protestors will show up and at what time.

        While we are not going to mandate businesses board up, we do recommend that merchants take whatever action they feel necessary to ensure their businesses are protected.

What a load of crap and Friedman knows his laying a field of manure with his op-ed piece in the Slimes. They’re scared that once Dementia Joe is out in the open for the American to see and hear for themselves without his handlers the man is toast. They can’t keep the Delaware Dimwit in the basement forever! That’s why they’ll find any excuse to cancel the presidential debates this fall.

      Overall it’s a great video. But I take issue with her claim about warm weather. This video was posted on Jun 13, that’s nearly a month ago now. We have seen an increase in transmission of the virus in the warmer states once they opened up. I”m not alarmed by that, I think it’s appropriate to open up right now, let people live normally, and the vulnerable should protect themselves. But this doctor is giving the false impression that the virus will die off in the hot summer months and it’s just not doing that. And the second spike in the fall isn’t just predicted because of cooler weather but because we all tend to congregate more indoors as the temperatures drop, and that contributes to spreading illness.


      • Super elite covfefe999 loves her President! says:

        I also take issue with her claim that SARS-CoV-2 being a novel virus didn’t mean we can’t fight it off. It all depends on the virus, not its category. We were very lucky that SARS-CoV-2 wasn’t as deadly as the original SARS which is also a coronavirus but has a fatality rate of around 15% and was more than 50% in older age ranges.

I remember her telling Jim Acosta a couple weeks ago, this is the briefing room at the White House, not some cable news segment. Was it the absence of certain media clowns that made it so? And if that’s the case, time to figure out how to exclude those people with no manners and repetitive gotcha questions. I know a judge intervened once, but there has to be more they can do. A lot of the questions were lightweight, but not really a lot of disagreeable stuff. Got to hand it to her, she is taming the beast.

      Here we go again! The Ford Foundation cut all ties with the Ford Motor Company when they sold all their non voting shares in 1974. They have zilch, nada, nothing to do with FoMoCo. It would take all of 1 whole minute to find this out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Foundation

      When you click on the Marsha Blackburn Tweet above, you end up at the Law Enforcement Today website viewing this article about FoMoCo selling police cars while “backing the defund police movement.”

      At the beginning of this libelous article you’ll encounter an embedded blue link that takes you to a Ford Foundation history which tap dances around them being a completely separate entity since 1974. Henry Ford ii was on the board of the Ford Foundation until 1976 but he wasn’t representing FoMoCo.

      Right after you encounter the blue highlighted link to the Ford Foundation history link you’ll see the article mentions that they reached out to FoMoCo for a statement. Wait until you read the quote from Elizabeth Kraft, Commercial Vehicle Communications Manager at Ford Motor Vehicle.

      She spells out in no uncertain terms that FoMoCo has nothing to do with the Ford Foundation and has their own charitable arm, the Ford Motor Company Fund. She unequivocally states they have nothing to do with defunding the police.

      This doesn’t even slow down whoever this Law Enforcement Today outfit is. They continue to rail about FoMoCo/Ford Foundation stabbing Policemen in the back while backing the defunding of the police. They go on to mention that Henry Ford iii is now on the board of the Ford Foundation. The author of this diatribe is champing at the bit to somehow blend FoMoCo with the Ford Foundation.

      I will see what I can find about Law Enforcement Today. I will look for a way to contact them. Maybe they have a writer here that used to work for Ferrari? Other Treepers need to look this over. Something’s rotten in Dearborn.

    “ Why appalling? The main aim of humanities education is precisely to prepare students to engage in civil, reasoned “discussion on sensitive issues.” To avoid this is to abandon our mission.

    We neglect that mission if we impose our own or anyone else’s views on students. But the msg from HKUSpace calls for preventing students themselves from talking about anything “sensitive.” (And of course it doesn’t define “sensitive,” except to indicate it’s political.)

    So teachers are being told there’s “zero tolerance” for some unspecified range of politically related topics. Standard white terror technique: something is off limits but we won’t tell you what it is, or why, or what the consequences of doing it are.

    “ I suggest an appropriate classroom response might be a discussion of the meaning of “Arise, ye who refuse to be slave.”

    Five Years of Injustice Following China’s 709 Crackdown

    “ On July 9, five years ago the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a nationwide offensive targeting hundreds of defense lawyers and human rights defenders for detention, interrogation, and politically motivated criminal charges. The “709” crackdown, named for the date it began on July 9, 2015, was designed to intimidate a generation of lawyers and activists from representing or assisting anyone the CCP perceives as a threat to its absolute power. It showed the world what it means to govern via “rule by law,” rather than a system based on the rule of law.”

    Implementing Visa Restrictions Under the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act

    The United States seeks fair, transparent, and reciprocal treatment from the People’s Republic of China for our citizens. We have taken several steps to further this goal. Unfortunately, Beijing has continued systematically to obstruct travel to the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) and other Tibetan areas by U.S. diplomats and other officials, journalists, and tourists, while PRC officials and other citizens enjoy far greater access to the United States.

    Therefore, today I am announcing visa restrictions on PRC government and Chinese Communist Party officials determined to be “substantially involved in the formulation or execution of policies related to access for foreigners to Tibetan areas,” pursuant to the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act of 2018. Access to Tibetan areas is increasingly vital to regional stability, given the PRC’s human rights abuses there, as well as Beijing’s failure to prevent environmental degradation near the headwaters of Asia’s major rivers.


    Please note : reciprocity

    Tonight we learned that the Houston mayor (a progressive—no surprise there) cancelled the GOP convention at the last minute. This was an obvious political stunt, but his excuse for doing so was based on the current hysteria about the pandemic “spike:” in covind-19 virus cases.

    The reporting on the spike is bogus. In March the CDC changed the criteria for defining virus cases: formally one positive case = one infected person. But the CDC’s new definition started including people within the tested individual’s immediate group. The individuals where not test and were nonetheless presumed to be “infected” regardless of whether they were tested or not.

    Texas and other state started reporting this exponentially wider (x 17) number of presumed infected cases—without explanation—as legitimate infected cases. Not surprisingly, thanks to the x 17 multiplier, the reported numbers of “cases” skyrocketed. This was when big-city media began promoting a “new” pandemic. This bureaucratic slight-of-hand just derailed the GOP convention in Houston. Why are out politicians not talking about this?

      MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas — Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough said he’s willing to host the Texas Republican convention after Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner canceled the event at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

      There has been a lot of back-and-forth surrounding the GOP plans, but one thing is certain, it won’t be held at the GRB. The convention was expected to bring more than 6,000 delegates to the city from July 16-18. Turner called off the convention on Wednesday.

      The Woodlands is well equipped to host the convention and is a beautiful location.

    Repost, accidentally posted on wrong thread.

    Mike Pompeo is disappointed in the WHO. No wonder. It has recently come to light that the CCP wasn’t just late in informing the World about the Wuhan Plague, it NEVER informed the World about the Wuhan Plague. Not only is it a toady for the CCP, (Taiwan calls it the Chinese Health Organization), but it lies about important events and facts with deadly consequences.

    Chris Plante did yeoman service in covering on his radio show The Chris Plante Show on Friday, July 3. Second hour, from 9min to 22 min after the hour.


    I only heard this once and nothing from anywhere else over the weekend. Since it’s important, I did a little research to see what I could come up with, seems like this is a blockbuster story that never got the fuse lit.

    The source for Chris’ story is a Washington Examiner article from July 1 or 2, which in turn got the story from Washington Free Beacon. I have seen neither source. WFB doesn’t seem to have a search function. *( Did anyone see those?)

    A brief synopsis is that civilian monitoring agencies, (not CDC) picked up reports from doctors in Wuhan reporting on cases of mysterious pneumonias. Taiwan got a heads up, and since they were badly burned by SARS in 2002, another bat virus from Wuhan, they fired off an interrogatory to the WHO district office in China on Jan 1. Apparently, that was the first WHO had heard about it but WHO pretended that of course they knew about it and it was no big deal and there’s no evidence of human to human spread.

    For the next month the WHO praised China for its transparency and good citizenship and made up the story (lied) that China had notified WHO on December 31st. They encouraged good case detection and tracing at arrival airports. ( Right. Like 10,000 arrivals a day) This fake story was widely promoted by the usual suspects in the MSM, CNN, WaPo, NYT etc, although mildly chiding China for supposedly waiting 6 days to tell the World.

    Apparently, that’s a false narrative. China NEVER told the World. Or if it did, it did it in secret. WHO has recently revised its web page timeline on June 29th to make its false story harder to detect. Since I don’t consider WHO an honest agency, despite all its trappings, I went to the Wayback Machine to check its Website, http://www.WHO.int, and there are a few things worth noting.

    The “Corona Virus” isn’t mentioned until a Q&A article on Jan9, which discusses it together with the common cold, another corona virus, with no sense of urgency. On Jan 13, it reported the first case in Thailand and added the info that it is a zoonotic virus that is spread from animals to people, Cooking meat well was encouraged.

    President Trump was forming a crisis group in mid-January and cut off travel from China Jan 31st.
    I was looking for a date after which, WHO supported travel bans from hotspots to contain the contagion. To my surprise, reading the travel advice, WHO has NEVER to this day recommended restricting trade or travel to infected areas

    The WHO is one big Shine, all hat no cattle.

    👇👇rectification campaign in PRC. Going full Mao2.0

    “that the rectification campaign coming through the Chinese political-legal apparatus is *big.*

    2/x) Language is very tough; emphasis on “political security” very broad.

    As @linglivienna has pointed out, this is coming out of the renovated/renamed stability maintenance 综合治理 apparatus built up by Zhou Yongkang. Now titled 平安中国建设协调小组, run by Xi.

    Note that the website is still the same: http://chinapeace.gov.cn.

    Why might this be important?

    Some of the darker scenarios of where China might go in terms of domestic politics involve a steady revival of Maoist-style political struggle against internal enemies.(5/x) And once you see this specific bureaucracy launch a rectification campaign, using terms like “political security” 政治安全, “Yan’an rectification” 延安整风, all the time while emphasizing “political security” 政治安全, “Yan’an rectification” 延安整风, all the time while emphasizing Xi’s core leadership role ….

    well, you can just start imagining where this might go – even if the current campaign seems to be limited to the political-legal apparatus right now …

    This explains Sec Pompeo’s statement on https://www.state.gov/five-years-of-injustice-following-chinas-709-crackdown/#.XwZ2ehdDjiM.twitter

    Looks like Mao2.0 is facing headwinds. Within his party.if he goes down this route, today I would say he has lost. Big time.

    As an aside, many here do not give credit to the US government under this administration. They know the score, have a policy and a willingness to implement. It.

    The Political Logic of China’s Strategic Mistakes


    For the first time since the end of the Cultural Revolution, the Communist Party of China faces a genuine existential threat, mainly because its mindset has led it to commit a series of calamitous strategic errors.

    Martinez, CA, “protest” planned for Sunday. (They had 2 letters of a BLM street sign recently painted over.)

    The Police Chief is being very proactive.

    Streets downtown will be closed off; residents and businesses are being asked to not park downtown for several days; likely extra help being brought in from surrounding areas.

    Not sure if the “protestors” are aware, but Martinez is the county seat and has a jail or several jails and holding facilities. The downtown is older, forgotten in time with un-reinforced brick buildings, not-exactly vintage shops, small homeless population, aging bikers, and protected otters.

    It is cutoff on several sides by mountains, an oil refinery, and the water. I think there may only be two ways into the core area.

    If things git nasty, I can see looters going back to Best Buy (Pleasant Hill) or Walnut Creek. Minimal attractive targets for looting in Martinez.

    Dutch Police Discover Kidnap, Torture Chamber in Hidden Shipping Containers

    53lbs MDMA (extasy drug) found, maybe this was to torture their drug or underground crime competitors

    Dutch police have arrested six men after a torture chamber was discovered in a series of underground shipping containers, kitted out with implements of torture including a dentist chair, handcuffs, pliers, saws, and black hoods.

    The seven shipping containers were modified with sound insulation and lined with heat-insulating foil. Each container had handcuffs on the floor and ceiling, with the purpose of chaining kidnapping victims in standing position. The torture chambers were also fitted with cameras, the Dutch Public Prosecution Service revealed on Tuesday.

    One of the shipping containers was found to have several sets of police clothing, bulletproof vests, and flashing lights. Dutch police also found a container with a dental chair bolted in the middle. There were also bags full of instruments presumably meant to torture prospective victims, including “pruning shears, tree loppers, branch saws, scalpels, pliers, extra handcuffs, finger cuffs, tape, balaclavas, and black cotton bags” that could be used as kidnapping hoods.

    A raid on one in Rotterdam also found 24 kilograms (53lbs) of MDMA.

    A few observations on the “mask of submission” here locally.

    Today, I had to go to a particular store in the city limits for some items that I can’t get outside the city limits. This is the first time I went anywhere complicated since the idiot mayor jumped on the “mask of submission” bandwagon.

    Of course, I REFUSE to wear this idiotic and ineffective mask as it impairs my breathing I guess due to childhood pneumonia. Sadly, a large percentage of people inside the city limits seem to be obediently doing it although it is close to 90 degrees every day.

    What I do is just act normal sans mask. I was ready to rumble if challenged but no problem at the convenience store.

    The next stop was a home center. Again, no problem. I think the employees aren’t into being the mask “police”.

    At my last stop for food, there was a person at the door who asked if I had a mask. I informed them that I was taking the medical exemption and that was that. No hassle although I was ready for it. I have the mayor’s order printed out with the exemption paragraph in bold but haven’t had to use it yet.

    One of the things that occurred to me out in the world of “mask of submission” is how DEHUMANIZING it is to see all these people wearing masks. It totally destroys their individuality which is probably another reason such stupidity is being pushed.

    I’m glad I haven’t had a confrontation yet and have been able to purchase what I need but I am ready to rumble if necessary. If more people in mass pushed back, the mask crap would be over pretty quick, IMHO.
