  1. *The FED has lost it and the sad fact is, it's pretty obvious we are headed for hyperinflation. I think stores better have tight security because when people can't afford to feed their families, things might get ugly*.

  2. 5:00 Uhh… Well, Bath does have some nice spots I guess, and there's some lovely places around the area out in the Cotswolds, but the City of Bath – the city centre at least – is kind of a dump.

  3. Are there any other artist, poets, hobbyists, etc who just find it hard to find a positive muse? Or is it just me? It was bad enough after '01 watching the right turn into war-hungry pigs. But, watching the willing give up all their freedoms and the previously skeptical 'trust the experts' on top of that is too much.

  4. yes Brett its true for me too, how you feel now in society. But really its just the assumption of new knowledge about our society, about our vulnerabilities within it that we are comprehending and the initial awkwardness that comes with it. Nonetheless these things actually are always true and always have been. We build societies to protect ourselves from nature around us (people) however the nature within remains a threat.

  5. I rarely wore a mask – and I never wore one outdoors or at any of my son's sporting events. (I live, at the risk of being stereotypical, in a very blue state.) To this day, I don't think about masks or Covid. After the the two weeks to "flatten the curve," I called it BS and lived my life.

  6. It's the people of freedom against the people of fear, and it's the people of fear who will bring about global tyranny.

  7. I don’t think the trust can be restored unless the truth comes out and,those who were so wrongly calling us unvaccinated apologise heartfelt and learn from this experience that the Government can so this to us.

  8. This is like after WW2 in Germany when people in Europe had to learn to live together when the majority capitulated and cooperated with Mr. H and his insanity and a few resisted. It was then “ Well the war’s over. Let’s forget all about it and move on. Stop living in the past where your entire family was murdered by your neighbors. Let bygones be bygones.” Fair enough? You should be pals with your neighbors again like nothing happened?

  9. The full evil & harm from lock downs is yet to be quantified. Apart from psychological harms, The youngest have been targeted on multiple levels. Their immune systems, restricted from microbial interaction, by masks, Now? absent to risks in pathogens like monkey pox & hepatitis

  10. The politicians who love authoritarian power should be kicked out of office, and they should be told why they are being kicked out of office.
