The Irish are revolting
There is a glimmer of hope in this blighted isle.
Yesterday there was a large demonstration in Dublin protesting against the wearing of face nappies. It was only a matter of time before people started to revolt against the widespread laws and restrictions that have torn normal life asunder. I’m just surprised it didn’t happen earlier in the year.
Another notable item of news yesterday which in my book is far more important is an article by a high ranking doctor –
‘Draconian’ restrictions around Covid-19 condemned by HSE doctor.
At last there is someone prepared to stick their head above the parapet and say what a lot of us have been thinking for a long time. The hysterical over-reaction to a bit of a virus has baffled me from the start. Okay, it’s a new strain of flu that we haven’t seen before. Okay it’s quite contagious and can be infectious even if the victim is asymptomatic, but is this reason enough to destroy an economy and condemn people to misery and even death?
Remove the restrictions. Let the virus do its worst. It may be a nasty dose of flu but sooner or later we’ll have to learn to live with it. They talk about “defeating” it by imposing “social distancing” and lockdowns but you can’t defeat a virus. It will just linger until there is an opportunity to infect again. All they have really done is to postpone the infection rate until the beginning of the normal flu season which is going to cause chaos as the medical profession frantically tries to discern the difference between the two flu strains. What difference does it make whether you have the “old” flu or the “new” one? The symptoms are much the same and by all accounts the death rate will also be much the same also.
We live in interesting, if somewhat hysterical times.
I see that Wales have now imposed these idiotic restrictions after leaving off for a while , all because 20 people in 100,000 a percentage of 0.02. It truly is bewildering to me, I’ve just carried on as normal, although I had some kind of like illness In November which was probably a version of Hong Kong fluey. This madness has to end soon ,because it’s got to be paid for by the likes of my children and their children.
Do a virtual 'tour' of the different countries of this world and its fundamentally the same CV script being rolled out in a bizarre Mexican wave for purposes unknown to the most of us. Perhaps the Walking Dead has morphed into reality courtesy of a glitch in the Matrix, makes more sense that the drivel 'experts 'scientists' civil servants and politicians put out.
Did anyone on the Emerald Isle ever get to find out what happened to people who travelled more than 2km from home back when the madness began?
Masks are doing more harm than good. Even ones which trap the finest particles will still allow the Covid and other viruses through. How do I know this?
Hay-fever sufferers report that masks do NOT prevent their symptoms.
The smallest pollen grains come from forget-me-not flowers and are approx 10 microns diameter (0.01mm).
Most tree pollen grains are much larger, up to 200 microns (0.2mm).
Covid viruses are approx 125nm (0.125 microns, or 0.000125mm) diameter, that is, 80 times smaller than the smallest pollen grains.
So, although masks may reduce the spread of coughs and sneezes, it's logical that they do not stop Covid viruses. A face-shield stops coughs and sneezes and does not impede breathing, so when insisted upon by shop drongos, that's what I use.
I wonder what the idiots in charge would do if everyone used face-shields instead of these pointless and unhealthy masks?
(sigh) If only they'd start doing it here as well. Not just the little (anti-masks/restrictions) protests popping up here and there but on a country wide basis. But noooo. Too many
idiotspeople have bought into the hype. I swear, most people here are so gullible these days they'll believe anything…
…or am I being a bit too cynical?
I hope this is not extremely bad Blog etiquette but the link below is a pretty good summery of where we are now. And it is not comfortable reading. It is LONG but IMO very impressive.
By the way how is the old bed sheet rope factory prospering?
