End Of Vacation

End Of Vacation

According to time-honored end-of-vacation protocols, I should have a gleaming new post ready to go for tomorrow, full of wit, verve, interest, and words. Let’s start a poll to see if that happens.

I beg forgiveness for not answering your emails. They are many and I am one. I value each, and thank you all for them. Many valuable tips and articles, without which this blog cannot succeed.

    Whether or not a bright shiny new post occurs would depend on what you did on vacation……Joe never has anything bright and shiny to say after he runs off on vacation during a crisis he caused. Of course, you’re not Joe. Still, depends on what you did, which hopefully was enjoy time off!

    Well, I also just concluded a vacation in that part of the world and found the end somewhat bittersweet.

    What?… Oh, I thought you said “End of vaccination”.

    Vacation ending?! — but you just got there, and Labor Day is yet far in the future. Relax, go back to tying your flies. The world will still be there when you finally return.

    The masks do nothing! Absolutely effing nothing! It’s over. The masked lost, Science has failed them… but THE SCIENCE ™ will go on, and it insists that you wear its emblem, because it is no longer about who’s wrong or who’s right, but who is more virtuous in their hearts… It shows that you care!

    Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’

    Lou: ‘Why not?’

    Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’

    Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’

    Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’

    Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’

    Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’

    Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’

    Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’

    Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’

    Bud: ‘Yes.’

    Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’

    Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’

    Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’

    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

    Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’

    Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’

    Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’

    Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’

    Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’

    Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’

    Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.

    Bud: ‘Ok.’

    Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’

    Bud: ‘That’s right.’

    Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’

    Bud: ‘Certainly.’

    Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’

    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

    Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’

    Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’

    Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’

    Bud: ‘That’s fine.’

    Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’

    Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’

    Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’

    Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’

    Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’

    Bud: ‘I know.’

    Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’

    Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’

    Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’

    Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’

    Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’

    Bud: ‘Correct.’

    Lou: ‘Why not?’

    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

    Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’

    Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’

    Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’

    Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’

    Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’

    Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’

    Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’

    Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’

    Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’

    Bud: ‘Third base.’

    I continue my, so far in vain, search for Redman.

    Rescue dogs shot dead by NSW council due to COVID-19 restrictions

    “Several impounded dogs due to be rescued by a shelter have instead been shot dead by a rural council in NSW under its interpretation of COVID-19 restrictions, alarming animal activists and prompting a government probe.

    Bourke Shire Council, in the state’s north-west, killed the dogs to prevent volunteers at a Cobar-based animal shelter from travelling to pick up the animals last week, according to council’s watchdog, the Office of Local Government.”

    Is There In Truth No Beauty?

    “Bourke Shire Council, in the state’s north-west, killed the dogs to prevent volunteers at a Cobar-based animal shelter from travelling to pick up the animals last week, according to council’s watchdog, the Office of Local Government.”

    Lovely. So, now they’re slaughtering dogs.

  13. Oldavid

    Well, the Bourke Shire Council was acting very properly according to the hoax mandates because those dogs would’ve tested positive for a remnant of a “corona virus” if the PCR “test” was recycled often enough (surely, if goats and paw paws can be “cases”) then those dogs would’ve posed a real risk to the spread… not to mention the risk posed by the, presumably, healthy “unsymptomatic” volunteers spreading the “disease” beyond the confines of their homes or the arbitrary travel limits imposed.

    Come now, we should know that Big Brother only wants to impose his diabolical megalomania on us because his narcissism is benevolent.

    Lovely. So, now they’re slaughtering dogs.

    Hey, if it just saves one life… then this is all worth it!

    Why do you think Fauci injected all those Beagles?

    Compared to how Fauci’s lab-dogs died, the bullet was more quick and merciful.

    But you’d think they’d have been smart enough to try putting masks on the dogs first. I hear those work!

  15. Oldavid

    Yair, Johnno, perhaps we should put “masks” on all fruits, vegetables and animals as these fragments of RNA can be found everywhere with appropriate magnification via the PCR “tests”.

    Anyhow, have a little smile at the grand prognostications of the plebiscite:
