Mask on, mask (never) off

You weren’t really fool enough to think they were ever going to take the jack-boot off of our necks, were you?

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said on Wednesday that the state will extend Phase 3 of the coronavirus reopening plan for three more weeks.

The state moved into Phase 3 on Oct. 2. Phase 3 allowed bars, amusement parks and movie theaters to reopen, but with limits on capacity and rules about social distancing and face coverings.

And in three weeks, there’ll be another extension. Count on it, people. But hey, at least I was wrong when I predicted that Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas would be suffering the same ignoble fate as Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and etc, wasn’t I?

Ummm. Kinda.

Halloween is not canceled, but the NC Department of Health and Human Services has recommended that people take precautions such as not sending kids out door-to-door to solicit candy.

The state also notes that having kids reach into a bowl for candy is a high-risk activity that should be discouraged. Large indoor Halloween or costume parties are also a bad idea.

Okay, I guess “recommended” is at least somewhat better than “forbidden.” In Amerika v2.0, we gotta take whatever scraps and crumbs our benevolent masters deign to throw us, it seems.

Free advice, from me to you: if you own a small business in a Democommie shitrapy like NC, particularly in the bar/restaurant/entertainment industry, and it hasn’t collapsed around your and your employees’ ears already: permanently shut that thing the fuck down IMMEDIATELY. I do not mean next month. I do not mean next week. I do not mean tomorrow. I mean friggin’ yesterday. Close the doors, bar the windows, and never look back.

If you can somehow conjure up a gullible, wet-behind-the-ears nimrod to buy the business off you, then sell it for whatever the mark is willing to give you. Don’t negotiate, don’t haggle, just take the sucker’s cash and run. Better to bite that bullet and take your financial lumps now, before things get even worse, which they almost certainly will. Then quickly move away to one of the handful of relatively free states that still remain, while that’s something you’re still permitted to do without being penalized for it. Take some small comfort in having denied Kount Koopula the opportunity to bleed you for any more of your hard-earned in taxes, fees, licenses, and the like, and be glad you escaped without further damage.

  1. The most astounding stat of 2020 is the 100% survival rate (not from Covid) of the hundreds of petty dictators around the country.

  2. I actually live about 1/2 hour away from Charlotte, in Rock Hill, SC. We have an OLDER and sicker population, with more Black people (who seem to be more vulnerable to COVID, for whatever reason).

    We have LESS restrictive policies. Haven’t noticed an onslaught of deaths recently.

    Sure, the numbers showing a positive test are up. And, yes, tragically, some have died. But the deaths are largely:

    Old people, particularly those in fragile condition and/or in nursing home/assisted living
    Immuno-compromised people – cancers, lung conditions, heart problems, diabetes, AIDS – all of which, Black people have a higher incidence of
    The morbidly obese – most of them are NOT ‘otherwise healthy’. They are less likely to have full breathing capacity, good circulation, or a healthy immune system. Often, that was a CAUSE of their obesity.

    That’s it. Sometimes, someone will be on the news as a healthy, young person who died of COVID. When fuller information is available, it’s found that, no, the person was quite sickly, or had some other cause of death (but, with a positive COVID test).

    Cooper is determined to kill the NC economy. A more suspicious person than I might ask: What’s the outcome for the state if people have to sell at fire sale prices?

    Could it be that there are those who would buy up the properties/businesses at distress sale prices, and thereby profit from others’ misery? Might those people be connected to powerful political interests?

    1. Yep, as we noticed very early on, half or more of the deaths are those in congregate living. Almost every death is the result of poor health primarily related to old age.

      8000 people die every day in the USA. How easy is it to pin a few of those normal deaths on the china/electionVirus for political purposes?

      What is the excess death rate now? Hint, near zero, bordering on subzero.
