Maggots have never been observed in the wild wearing masks.

Attempts to mask Maggots have repeatedly failed.

It’s obviously Natural Law that Maggots don’t wear masks.

How hard is this to understand?

It's fascinating that an article about the pandemic immediately turns into a political slugfest. It's ironic that the very people that accuse others of acting hysterical are, in fact, the ones being hysterical. I'll give y'all a dated example so as not to fan the current flames.

20 years ago in Seattle I drove a Jaguar (likely a right-leaning car) and had some left-leaning bumper sticker on my car. I saw somebody driving a Subaru wagon ( PNW liberal vehicle of choice, it sometimes seems) with a Bush bumper sticker. I posted the irony of this on a Jaguar forum I was a member of, with zero political commentary, and was immediately screamed at for being an America-hating leftist, or something. Yikes.

BTW, I just moved from Portland to the Wenatchee area a few months ago. The majority of my friends are in PDX or Seattle. They, too, say that the media is blowing this out of proportion. Grain of salt and all that, but I thought I'd share

All right, that's all from this Libtard, Snowflake, Playground taunt du jour guy.

Thanks.

"It's ironic that the very people that accuse others of acting hysterical are, in fact, the ones being hysterical." What's even more ironic is that both the liberals and the conservatives who read this said "You tell those bastards!!"

I found it crystal clear that he was on the left, referring to the right. That’s why I thanked him when he said he was done posting.

@Cheburashka. 😉

TheIronyEscapesYou

Ah, I realized I wasn't clear in my comment about the media. They're blowing the protest and riots out of proportion, not the pandemic.

IF Trump was really concerned about Federal property he would not have pardoned Amon Bundy. This Portland stuff is just political theater, as the mayor of Portland said.

justbecool

It wouldn’t matter what Trump does or doesn’t do, your side of the aisle will always find something to complain about.

Cheburashka

Kinda like your car mechanic will always find something wrong with your car. But it helps when you're driving a Trump: the basic equivalent of a barn-found AMC Matador that had been in a saltwater flood.

Over 50 days of violent protests in Portland. Destruction, people getting hurt. What is theater about that?

Ooops! My error - he pardoned the Hammonds who apparently were the impetus for the Malheur takeover. The arsonists.

The Liberals and Democrats will get you killed, on welfare , take your house & Kids , put you in re-education camps, make you defenseless, make you hate your neighbors. Everything they accuse the President of doing the communists are actually responsible doing , There are Liberals here continuing to spew their anti Trump and anti you ( freedom patriots ) dogma, There is the likelihood that they are staffed to decimate chaos and division amongst the comment viewership. The communist will become more hysterical and more visible on more social platforms as time approaches towards November . You will see them here, many of the communist authors here will be taking orders and following directed talking points from their masters in Seattle and the Deep State and wether they know it or not , from China.

Nobody wants your house or your kids. But maybe a red dawn education class could help you.

Basin Patriots who are still able to pull their heads out of the Fox flatulence orifice know by now . . .

Militarized Trump agents outfitted similar to Proud Boy white-supremacist extremists have been “disappearing” citizens without cause into unmarked rental SUV’s in Portland.

Our life-long Patriot friends and neighbors have always warned:

When tyranny comes, it comes draped in a flag and promising to uphold law and order.

Will our Patriots rise to defend their countrymen in Portland? No? Why not?

Is it because they hold and keep their 2nd-Amendment rights to defend only themselves? Okay.

So, if the citizenry of Portland exercises their God-given 2nd-Amendment rights to drive out Trump’s secret police, what will our Basin Patriots have to say?

JohnQPublic

Here's the most balanced reporting I've been able to find, telling the various, verified facts and comments about what's been happening in Portland. The "city under siege," btw, is actually a small, designated area where protesters are doing their thing.

justbecool

Second Amendment loving basin patriots won’t do a damned thing to help those tearing Portland apart. I’m glad the Feds are over there. 50 straight days of chaos. Disappearing people “without cause”. Just innocent law abiding people walking their dogs down the street, eh? If anything, I’d want to invoke my second amendment right and go to Portland and help the Feds clean up the place.

justbecool

I actually wouldn’t mind hearing from an actual Portland resident about his opinion on the whole ordeal. Would be hard to imagine they’re fine with it. These protesters aren’t waking up in the morning and going to work, taking their ties off afterwards and heading out to protest. These are jobless, homeless, agents of chaos, nothing more. Let’s be crystal clear about that.

JohnQPublic

Here ya go. Saw somebody in Seattle share this:

From someone I trust in Portland:

"It’s been a nerve-racking week in Portland. I have a few thoughts to share about the events lately. I live on the west side of the river in downtown Portland, and as much as it seems the whole city is under siege when you watch the news, the protests have been pretty much concentrated to the area near the Justice Center, about a 10-minute walk for me.

I actually don't even realize these demonstrations are happening unless I walk over to them. For the last 50 days it's been a standoff between the citizens of Portland that feel there is an abuse of power and those abusers of power, the police.

Now, stepping back a few years, there has been an ongoing confrontation between the Proud Boys and the citizens of Portland. I say citizens of Portland and not Antifa because if you watch right leaning news channels they make a blanket statement and claim that everyone that protests the arrival of the Proud Boys to our town is associated with ”Antifa”. It's the furthest thing from the truth. These are normal everyday citizens that don't appreciate a hate group like the proud boys coming into our city and intimidating people of color.

When the Proud Boys arrive they attract counter-protestors and then the police arrive. So what you have now is two groups protesting with polar opposite beliefs. One side feels that because they are white and male they deserve a privilege that they were nothing more than born into. On the other hand, you have people that want everyone to have an equal opportunity in this country regardless of skin color or gender.

So you have these two sides squaring off and yelling at each other, right? Now the police enter the picture. When they arrive, they face the citizens of Portland with their back to the Proud Boys as if they are protecting them, and at the same time, intimidating the citizens of Portland. This and the events of police brutality that have been captured on cameras across the country is why we see this in Portland every night.

So now 45 has called in federal agents and they dress eerily similar to the Proud Boys. These federal agents are driving around in rental vans and grabbing people off of the streets because...well, one of the reasons I heard was that someone was wearing all black and walking down the road. For all anyone knows, this could be a van driven by Proud Boys grabbing people off the street.

This is why what is going on is horrifying. Imagine being pulled over by an unmarked police car on a dark country road late at night and someone not dressed as an officer asks you to get out of the vehicle, it's the same thing.

justbecool

“Someone from Seattle”...credible. “Someone I trust”...credible. So let’s say this person is legit, they don’t have anything to worry about because it’s not them down there protesting and not their business being trashed. I bet if they were protesting in her front yard or not a “10 minute walk from her house” she’d have a different view. You can’t allow allow violent protests rage in this country indefinitely. How long was President Trump supposed to sit back and let it happen? Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, LA, all democratic run liberal cities that are turning into black holes. Sad to see. Jobless, homeless, agents of chaos, nothing more.

JohnQPublic

Look, I'm sorry if what this Portland resident shared doesn't fit your Fox Flatulence narrative. I really am. The spectre of Trump goon squads rolling in the name of "law and order" should alarm all of us enough to look outside the silo of our personal infotainment sphincters, even if we only like the smell of our own farts.

justbecool

Yeah, it sure doesn’t. Man, I can’t tell if you’re 40 or 14 with some of the stuff you say. All I know is the only people that should be upset about the police presence are the protesters who are destroying things. You’d think everyone else would be cheering the police on.

justbecool

How do violent protesters, destroying buildings, fighting with police, benefit you at all? How do their destructive actions make this a better country? Do you even know what your argument is, or are you just arguing to argue?

Cheburashka

What scares me the most is not you, but that your rant sound so similar to the more "ordinary" posts here. You're just posing your paranoid prognostications in a raw form, while others here put a bit more polish on them. I'm one of the liberals you are referring to. I am not a communist, and I take no orders from China or any place else. I simply speak my mind based on what I believe in. If you believe otherwise, you are a fool.

JohnQPublic

Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this week he believes the pandemic could be brought under control over the next four to eight weeks if “we could get everybody to wear a mask right now.”

Dr. Redfield was due to testify before Congress next week, but he, and every other member of the CDC, has been blocked from appearing by the White House.

But hey, I'll take the word of some yokel in the boonies aping the narrative fed to him by GOP spin doctors -- and not the doctor who has massive data on the effectiveness of masking in regions all over the world.

Because I am smart and I can make my own decisions about myself -- without regard for how those decisions affect the society I'm leeching off.

justbecool

Cite a source. “He believes”. Hmmm. So, one mans opinion. Why do other experts “believe” the masks don’t do anything? Why have numbers risen in places that are predominantly masking (Seattle)? “I can make my own decisions about myself”...yeah, that’s the basis of freedom, which this country was supposed to be all about.

I am very over picking sides at this point . I am on the 3rd side- my own side.

Getreal, prior to Covid hitting how was your life so terrible under Trump? How did you have it so bad?

Getrealman

I simply dont like Trump. Im not a fan of his rhetoric, inaccurate and irresponsible things he says and I think he is divisive and not equipped to be a leader of anything except his ego. I do not blame him for Covid but I do think he could have handled it better. Honestly, Im a democrat with conservative leanings and complain about both sides of the political spectrum. I just want someone competent as the president and doesnt make twitter his pulpit. Just the way I see things obviously its different than your opinion and others

Cheburashka

I can give you one example. My ex-wife took out college loans with the assurance that if she went into public service they would be forgiven. This was a locked down deal approved by the government. Trump appointed Betsy DeVos, who is completely unqualified for her position. She has refused to pay off the debts of these people who've gone into public service, even though there is a definite legal compulsion for the government to do so. She has also authorized garnishing of people's wages to pay off student loans, again violating the rule of law. Several Court decisions without against her, but she continues to break the law. That's just one example, but this sort of behavior is contrary to what's best for this country. Even if you don't think this deal should have been put in place, it was approved, and DeVos has no legal standing for refusing to forgive people's student loans.

JohnQPublic

Wow! I had no idea . . .google google click click. . . oh. Seems the House AND Senate also tried to stop her from screwing students that were ripped off by shady for-profit schools, and the bill got vetoed . . . by the guy who paid $25 million to make a fraud case against Trump University go away.

https://time.com/5867375/attorney-generals-sue-devos-student-loan-forgiveness/

So they say lift-yourself-by-your-bootstraps, and then blindly back crooks who screw people who try. It's probably redundant to mention this, but DeVos is the daughter of a billionaire, and wife of the son of Amway's founder.

Rich people screwing America -- the core value of Republicanism since Reagan.

justbecool

Sounds like you have some rich person envy, there Trumpus. This is America, you can get rich too, with hard work. Hell, Obama and Biden screwed the country for 8 years, now Obama lives in a 14 million dollar spread on Martha’s Vineyard and Biden has two mansions with comfortable basements. God bless capitalism.

Cheburashka

@JBC. You conveniently sidestepped the part where DeVos repeatedly broke the law in a way that prevented people from getting ahead. It's not about being rich. It's about supporting American values. Trump's values are not American values. They are currently in favor in this country, but they are far from what the Founders intended. Obama DID raise himself up from a position of limited wealth. Trump and DeVos were born with silver spoons in their mouths.

justbecool

I didn’t reply to the Devos thing because I need to read more on it, I’m ignorant to the facts. Who says Trump doesn’t have American values? Not what the founders intended? I think socialism, and fascism, and communism isn’t what the founders intended...all concepts openly supported by the left. Is it Trump and Devos fault they were born into money? Should they apologize because their parents were successful and provided an advantage for them? Isn’t that what all parents want for their kids? Should they apologize because they were born white too? Let’s not pretend that shady interpretations of the law and bent rules are exclusive to this administration. I can find plenty of shady rule breakers in the Obama Administration whose dealings actually took lives. Cite Hillary and Benghazi, Eric Holder and Fast and the Furious.

Cheburashka

" I think socialism, and fascism, and communism isn’t what the founders intended...all concepts openly supported by the left." I'm on the left and I don't support either of the latter two concepts. Neither does Biden. Socialism? That ship sailed with Social Security and the New Deal. Most Americans benefit from policies that grew out of socialist thinking. Put the broad brush away.

justbecool

Cheb, Biden has endorsed Commie Bernie, Socialist AOC, and Fascist Beto. All of them endorsed, all of them having a role in his government. Um, no thanks.

Cheburashka

@JBC: Well there you go again. It's like going to the zoo and watching the monkeys. Sometimes they're fun to interact with, sometimes they target you with poo, and sometimes they just play with themselves. Fortunately, their poo-throwing is pretty much a "yeet." You wrote: "Cheb, Biden has endorsed Commie Bernie..." Nope. Bernie Sanders is not a Communist. He's a Democratic Socialist. "... Socialist AOC..." Again, Democratic Socialist. Look it up. It's a far cry from pure Socialism. "...and Fascist Beto." Oooh. That one was kinda sloppy. You thought you were targeting me, but it seems like most of the poo landed on you!! Maybe you need more I-fiber and less hydrogenated Fox in your diet.

justbecool

Yeah, I might have played fast and loose with calling Beto a fascist, I will own that. I was implying that his take on the government coming for people’s guns just wasn’t going to happen without severe repercussions. Bernie can call himself whatever phrase he wants, he’s a communist. He aligns with communist ideology, has always been a soviet sympathizer and even honeymooned in Soviet Russia. AOC is Socialist who embraces Socialist ideals. Again, they can call themselves whatever they want to try to add shine to what they are, but the fact is you can’t polish a turd.

justbecool

Democratic Socialist makes as much sense and is as contradictory as someone identifying as a Christian Atheist.

JohnQPublic

Another one of King Cheato's chimps flinging crap from his cage of Fox ignorance, trying to "target" someone but merely smearing his face with fetid ammunition . . . .

Trumpus....just go away. You bring nothing of value to the table. You can’t defend any rebuke, you rant about the end of times, and your message is so unclear as to be thrown in the trash.

Cheburashka

@JBC: "Democratic Socialist makes as much sense and is as contradictory as someone identifying as a Christian Atheist." Now you're getting it!! I believe that title would fit me well. I believe in the majority of the teachings of Jesus Christ, but I'm an atheist. I follow his philosophy when it works, (all the love your fellow man stuff) but not when it's silly (the virgin birth and triumvirate God nonsense.) Thanks for making that clear!

I was wondering when we would start seeing the lib bootlickers on here start blaming Trump for all their failures and poor decisions. Typical...like children saying " but, but what about him"..too easy

stinky stew

According to the website i was on-- Cov-n19 -its size is-- 0.125UM. we should study masks and see how far down they filter- cloth is useless- i see people selling colth masks inbedded with nano silver particles- useless. I still say- its likely to absorb this virus tru your moist eyes. seems logical??

Cheburashka

The virus does not travel by itself. It can only travel in water droplets. Thus, all that needs to be filtered is water droplets and not the virus itself.

stinky stew

I will try to find the size of 1 covid. It could be measured in microns? Then see how far a m-95 mask filters-- also a hepa filter. I am guessing cloth masks are useless, have doubts about m-95 also

What we are going to do is the community as a whole WEAR FACE MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCE. Keep the gatherings to a minimum if you absolutely need to gather and think of others and how you are affecting the community and economy by not following basic instructions from the health district.

OHHHH NOOOOOOO... Foxy Loxy what are we going to do scream all the chicken littles.. Run to the cave says Foxy Loxy.. The Cave will save you..

Wonder why this stupid report had graphs and charts and nonsense but NOT ONE number of how many of those people were sent home, how were in the hospital, and how many were in the ICU and they sure didn't show how many died..

Wonder Why CHICKEN LITTLE.. Do you dare ask yourself or is the cave just making you feel all safe and warm??

It's BECAUSE they aren't in the hospitalsssssss they are home playing Fortnite and watching YouTube !!! They just tested positive.. WHOOPIE BIG DEALL !!!

No leadership from the top combined with folks willing to suck up crackpot theories, conspiracies, and cures = more disease, more deaths, greater costs.

The top is in Olympia, his name is Inslee and I agree "No leadership". What do you suggest he do?

Cheburashka

The "top" is the bottom-feeder, Trump. His messages have been very destructive. Inject sunlight into your body. "Resist." And my favorite: “I think that at some point that’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope.” Wow! What amazing leadership!!
