You've never lived under a migratory bird flyway have you?



That's just one flock of snow geese.


10,000+ birds taking off at once is quite the site.


Easy hunting though.

Hey, are you getting yourself ready for the next Convid 20 wave coming this fall? Your dear leaders and the media are getting ready to rev you up to get you into a state of fear and panic once again. You followers never learn anything. You have to be a sucker for punishment alright. What a loser. LOL.


Oh look! It's a new episode of taxme covid-19, oh wait, nevermind. It's a repeat.

You really need to get some new material.

Sweden has exposed the cruel folly of lockdown

Sweden’s strategy was subjected to a global smear campaign, but now it’s showing results.

A Notorious COVID Troll Actually Works for Dr. Fauci’s Agency


Bill Crews is a PR official at the National Institutes of Health. But he also has another job: an anonymous RedState editor who rails against the agency for which he works.

The managing editor of the prominent conservative website RedState has spent months trashing U.S. officials tasked with combating COVID-19, dubbing White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci a “mask nazi,” and intimating that government officials responsible for the pandemic response should be executed.

But that writer, who goes by the pseudonym “streiff,” isn’t just another political blogger. The Daily Beast has discovered that he actually works in the public affairs shop of the very agency that Fauci leads.

William B. Crews is, by day, a public affairs specialist for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. But for years he has been writing for RedState under the streiff pseudonym. And in that capacity he has been contributing to the very same disinformation campaign that his superiors at the NIAID say is a major challenge to widespread efforts to control a pandemic that has claimed roughly 200,000 U.S. lives.

Under his pseudonym, Crews has derided his own colleagues as part of a left-wing anti-Trump conspiracy and vehemently criticized the man who leads his agency, whom he described as the “attention-grubbing and media-whoring Anthony Fauci.” He has gone after other public health officials at the state and federal levels, as well—“the public health Karenwaffen,'' as he’s called them—over measures such as the closures of businesses and other public establishments and the promotion of social distancing and mask-wearing. Those policies, Crews insists, have no basis in science and are simply surreptitious efforts to usurp Americans’ rights, destroy the U.S. economy, and damage President Donald Trump’s reelection effort.

“I think we’re at the point where it is safe to say that the entire Wuhan virus scare was nothing more or less than a massive fraud perpetrated upon the American people by ‘experts’ who were determined to fundamentally change the way the country lives and is organized and governed,” Crews wrote in a June post on RedState.

“If there were justice,” he added, “we’d send and [sic] few dozen of these fascists to the gallows and gibbet their tarred bodies in chains until they fall apart.”


After The Daily Beast brought those and other quotes from Crews to NIAID’s attention, the agency said in an emailed statement that Crews would “retire” from his position. “NIAID first learned of this matter this morning, and Mr. Crews has informed us of his intention to retire,” the spokesperson, Kathy Stover, wrote. “We have no further comments on this as it is a personnel matter.”

Are they trying to scare us witless?

Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance’s scary graphs bear little relation to reality.

https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/0...re-us-witless/


Why won’t the opposition oppose this Covid authoritarianism?

MPs, judges and much of civil society are as committed to curtailing our freedoms as the government is, if not more so.

Nearly a third of recent ‘Covid deaths’ were not caused by Covid

Covid-19 was not the underlying cause of nearly 30 per cent of officially recorded Covid deaths over the summer.

I found a risk calculator.

https://www.mdlinx.com/article/what-...OSNTMU5eINtlOk

This is what it rated me at.

Infection Risk
We estimate you have a 13% chance
of catching COVID-19.
The average is 11.36%
You are in the middle risk band for catching COVID-19
13% is the equivalent of 1 in 7.69 people
or betting odds of 6.69/1.
Mortality Risk
If infected we estimate you have a 0.691% chance
of dying COVID-19.
The average is 0.407%
You are in the high risk band for dying from COVID-19
0.691% is the equivalent of 1 in 144.72 people
or betting odds of 143.72/1.

In England and Wales it's 44 in one million chance.

The answer is mind boggling. It is not that Covid was particularly bad in the jails but the government needs the space to lock up law abiding citizens that chose to ignore illegal lock down orders. After all ignoring a demand from an unelected bureaucrap is orders of magnitude worse than being a mass murderer of pedophile or drug dealer.

Today's total cases:

Quebec 586
Ontario 425
Alberta 147
BC 128
Manitoba 22
Saskatchewan 7
New Brunswick 2
Nunavut 1

Canada recorded 1,308 cases today, the most new daily since May 8. The record number of cases for one day is 1,920 (April 23). It would not surprise me, if we surpass that total by the end of the month.

I am unaware of any place in Canada that sentences people to prison for breaking social distancing rules, or for not wearing masks. In Alberta, you will be fined, but not sent to jail.

PS...if a municipality enacts a bylaw that forbids people from entering a business or Government office within city limits, that is considered "legal.' I am personally unaware of any person being sentenced to prison for breaking social distancing laws.

We? We have 7 and are doing 10X the testing that we did in May.

I can break it down for you:
Canada recorded 1,308 cases today, the most new daily cases (in Canada)since May 8 (in Canada). The record number of cases (in Canada) for one day is 1,920 (April 23). It would not surprise me, if we (Canada) surpass that total by the end of the month.

PS...do you have a source that can back up your claim that Canada now tests at 10 times the rate it did in May? I am positive it would not have been over three times the rate from four months prior.

Regardless, the percentage of tests that come back positive for COVID is currently under 2.2%, less than it was in May (3.2%).

Did you mean for yourself or British people in general?


If one is British, and does a COVID tests, the odds of receiving a positive test is 1 in 55.
