The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it.

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon.

Today’s question:

QUESTION: Do you think California will go into another COVID-19 “lockdown” around the holidays if the numbers spike during the fall/winter?

Talk about it….

after the newscum is out

errrr sorry crap

obviously the dems will cheat again

hey ask for the audit

Ricardoh September 14, 2021 at 12:57 PM

That depends on today’s election results.

Fred September 14, 2021 at 1:06 PM

Probably not because our politicians don’t want to hassle with all the Karen’s freaking out. So we will just let them all get infected and die.

Pyrrhus September 14, 2021 at 1:14 PM

At this point I don’t think it will. However, it all depends on hospitalization and ICU bed availability.

Anon September 14, 2021 at 1:15 PM

If Newsollini remains in power = Yes.
Anyone else in power = No.

Newsollini will be changing numbers to follow the Australian model.

If you choose to keep that looser Newsom in there today you can almost count on it.

Concordejet September 14, 2021 at 1:20 PM

I hope not

Badge1104 September 14, 2021 at 1:22 PM

I’m afraid, the way the Democrats are already talking, yes we will be locked down again.

Tsa September 14, 2021 at 1:24 PM

Probably not, but we’ll most likely have another surge…

I hope not. The lockdowns were prior to vaccines. If anything changes, it will be a stronger push for vaccines and more and more places that won’t allow the unvaccinated.

BrbnLvr September 14, 2021 at 2:08 PM

Only if the unvaccinated stay that way, contracting and spreading ever more virulent variants.

Virus gonna virus. Everyone is going to get it. If you believe you are at risk of a bad outcome, get vaccinated and it should keep you from getting ill. If you get sick, then you will have great natural immunity.
If you are vaccinated you should have no reason to fear anyone vaccinated or unvaccinated. Right?

The Mamba September 14, 2021 at 2:15 PM

Between the vaccination rates in this state and the number of people who’ve already had it, I’m not sure how we can’t be on the downslope…

The lockdowns are an integral part of the Great Reset or Green New Deal agenda an eco fascist and anti human agenda
They are used to curb economic activity in order to reduce carbon emissions and to demonstrate the new 2 tier class and legal structure of owners and renters or elite vs commoners very similar to feudal societies
Another part of the agenda is complete digital and actual real time surveillance and control over all financial transactions
They may even try to modify your DNA through vaccinations in order to “turn you off “ remotely using 5G wireless if needed
This is the future that Democrats are voting for today

Garbear September 14, 2021 at 2:32 PM

I would not be surprised, our government likes to control us

Annoyed September 14, 2021 at 2:52 PM

Not sure we’ve had much of a “lockdown” since spring 2020 when everyone shat their pants. I haven’t felt restricted in much of anything after summer 2020, except indoor dining and the gym, which I wouldn’t do much of either anyway.

No…the only ones who obey the lunacy are liberals and pansies. Synonymous, I know.

No, l don’t think so, businesses have adjusted as has the public. People are use to be out and about, and businesses are again making money. It would be hard to go backwards. As long as the COVID numbers don’t get worse, and as long as people wear masks and many are vaccinated we will be fine.

MJ September 14, 2021 at 3:57 PM

It’s all but guaranteed. The “leaders” of this state, and most of its voters, are control freaks. Unfortunately medical tyranny is the “new normal” unless people organize, mobilize, and push back.

Graceful September 14, 2021 at 4:40 PM

This is the new world order, all control all the time. Kids think this is normal now so their job is done. They need to make sure the curve is flat (the economic curve) and its a permanent new normal.

Stealthy Mama September 14, 2021 at 4:58 PM

You got that right, fedup.

The Observer September 14, 2021 at 5:00 PM

I expect everyone to be wearing masks for Halloween. After that, enough people should have been vaccinated that another lockdown won’t be necessary. However, if a new, nastier variant shows up in the next couple of months, all bets are off.

Cellophane September 14, 2021 at 5:22 PM

Without a doubt.

Jeff (the other one) September 15, 2021 at 12:20 PM

I think many of these representatives of government enjoy the power. They may make these mandates because they “follow the science” that meets their beliefs, and to some degree, think they are doing good, but that in and of itself is the problem, mandating how the average citizen should live at this level. How about, if you are concerned you will catch the Chinese Bat Fever at your local department store, wear a mask, keep your distance, or don’t go (personal responsibility). If you are vaccinated, or are not concerned about catching, or dealing with, the ‘vid, go about your shopping/visiting/living (personal responsibility).

Randy September 15, 2021 at 2:32 PM

now that Newscum has won – yes, and there will be more “junk” from his office coming out soon I bet as well
