How can you require different rules for some and not others?This COVID is never going away.

That’s right. This will be like the flu virus, every year a new strain.

The large stores and malls are owned by international capital funds or soon will be the small businesses are being targeted for destruction
International capital can manipulate the Fed Reserve and ECB etc to print money for themselves and have been doing so to buy up property
They want to create digital money to be completely monitored and controlled
This is real not a joke
Billionaires and people that own banking system are behind Great Reset
They intend to destroy free US economy and impoverish most people keeping them dependent on gov stimulus or other handouts
Politicians work for them not you
Their fraudulent pyramid scheme of fake money is collapsing and they need to build a new system fast
Only Russia and China and a few others are standing in their way of a global takeover
They may just try for anglosphere countries and Europe instead

DOD is building a new protocol under an initiative called JADC2. It’ll be spatial web 3.0 i.e. metaverse that big brands will need big tech to start building for. Network is called HGTP i.e. hypergraph transfer protocol. Good luck trying to understand how that works. The guy who designed it is only a freakin mathematics, physics, and computer science genius. There’s not much we can do now besides civil disobedience. These county idiots don’t know what they’re helping create. They’re just getting a threat from someone above them and someone above them on their pensions.

These stupid moronic rules make no sense to anyone with half a brain. But nice to know that crafty little germ will leave us alone at grocery stores, department stores, and malls. I swear, we are living in a clown world. As long as fools continue to go along with this insanity, we will find ourselves in desparate times. As far as I’m concerned, I WILL BOYCOTT EVERY PLACE OF BUSINESS OR RESTAURANT THAT GOES ALONG WITH THIS. I understand that they may not have a choice, but we all need to unite and grow a backbone at some point.

I can also bet that The French Laundry and any business Champagne Liberals frequent or own are except from any mandates. They can put their foot on citizens and the same rules don’t apply to them because in their minds everyone else is beneath them. Remember someone said that Obama’s birthday party was fine because the people at the party were sophisticated.

My concern would be that if people are getting killed when asking a customer to put on a mask, what will happen when that business asks for there vaccine card or a negative test when the customer has done neither? These mandates are making people crazy.

Levity is what we need here, Thanks guys
We do not seem to learn from the past and always seem to believe we can do it better than the ones that failed. Communism under MARX was the guarantee that everyone was the same and we all worked (equity). This worked for the USSR for a while as everyone had an occupation but everyone was poor as dirt and eventually failed. I believe we have something special here as we work to promote our lives not live to work. This is why we are free. We live within the laws that keep us civilized and have the opportunity to promote ourselves to a higher standard. This will not happen in socialism. My children will be better than me as they should, not simply a footnote in society “you will not get this any where else on earth” . We need to be proud of were we are and protect for our future. ramblings of a madman I guess

Are hair salons, barbers, nail salons, massage and beauty treatments requiring vaccination, too?

Reply

CountryGal September 14, 2021 at 6:38 PM

How pathetic!!!

First off, the virus doesn’t know what type lf business someone is going into.

If we’re required to wear face diapers indoors at any business, why does one need to be vaxxed or show a negative COVID-19 test to enter an entertainment venue but not to enter the mall or grocery store????

Make it make sense!!!!

The next step is Newsom requiring this state wide along with adding grocery stores, retail, and malls to the list.

This is what happens when little to no one cares or does anything about their freedoms being jeopardized.

If you are vaccinated, you shouldn’t give a s*** whether someone else is or not because YOU’RE protected!!!
The vaccine is a choice!!!!

Commiefornia is done.

The media release from CCC makes no mention of any penalty for businesses that do not comply with the mandate. So it seems compliance may be voluntary.

Meanwhile a couple counties over, not only are vaccines not mandated, but masks are optional. I drove by one restaurant that said “No masks allowed”.

According to CCC covid report only one woman has died of covid so far this month and no men.

What is the plan for food courts? Grocery stores that have Starbucks or cafes inside? Once again, Contra Costa County is passing the buck off to local businesses in enforcing these draconian mandates. Even though I’m fully vaccinated, I do not want to be interrogated by restaurants just to eat inside or movie theaters just to watch a movie. Meanwhile, the nearby Solano County doesn’t even have a mask mandate and is worse than off than Contra Costa!

How many of those who died contracted Covid at a gym or restaurant? I’d like to see some data on that.

If none, then why require proof of vaxx or a negative test to go work out or eat?

Chris September 15, 2021 at 10:57 AM

You’ll just have to trust science like Gavin, Nancy, London, and Anthony.

I’m not sure when was the last time you were in a Mall like many, but last month I saw plenty of people drinking beverages, eating ice cream, chewing gum, eating candy and snacks and also filling their faces at the food courts.

If they were concerned about “stopping the spread”, since we know that the virus can be spread by and infect the vaccinated, ONLY a negative test would be permitted.

I am sincerely asking that someone please explain the logic to me.

Reply

Yves Harlowe September 15, 2021 at 12:05 PM

It isn’t logical. Why gyms and restaurants? Why not salons? Why not other places of business? And if vaccinated people can still get infected and be contagious, what’s the point of proving you’re vaccinated to get into the gym? And if you are one who goes to the gy often, you’ll have to get tested a couple of times a week if you aren’t vaxxed. And if you aren’t vaxxed, you won’t be able to go out to eat without planning ahead so you can get tested first. No spontaneous eating out if you’re with your friends, and decide to grab lunch or dinner. Oh, whoops. I don’t have a negative Covid test in hand.

It’s appalling.

Jj September 15, 2021 at 1:41 PM

@Yves

yes exactly. Appalling sums it up perfectly.

It’s called the completion backwards principle:

1-Settle on a decision that is politically beneficial.
2-Manufacture a “science appearing procedure”.
3-Create data points to support the politically beneficial decision.
4-Bring in well compensated medical professionals to support it.
5-Alert county officials they better support it if they value employment.
6-If called to the carpet introduce a distraction.
7-If the distraction fails, cry racism and climate change.

as p-sack would say, “why do you need that information”

In today’s news, ” Fox Corp. human resources chief Kevin Lord said he was “pleased” to report a robust 90%-plus inoculation rate for the company, which happens to oversee the vaccine-bashing Fox News.”

“Fox has told its employees it will enforce daily COVID-19 testing for the few who haven’t been vaccinated, earning praise from the White House on Tuesday.”
