This phenomenon isn't limited to just California.

We had the same idea. I’ll bet you recognize this place. Looks like they’re serving up COVID. 😃

I thought I did keep the politics out by altering my first post and re-posting. The link itself might have been the issue.

Remaining willfully in the dark won't help the situation and relying solely on official, sanctioned sources isn't wise in this case because they do not have all the answers. Multiple sources of information should be referenced and compared. I recall a now deceased famous American historian who in an interview mentioned how bright on average Americans were compared to some parts of the world, but monumentally ignorant because they are so woefully uninformed.
Presumptuous much? You don't know anything about me, certainly not enough to make those kinds of judgements.
The truth? You think Ron Paul saying the democrats are using the Covid thing to bring down Trump is the truth? We're done.

Everyone chill. Even IIhan Omar is praising Trump now if you can believe that.

FYI from a certain source. Prepare for a big announcement before this weekend and stock up on two weeks worth of supplies no matter what state you're in before the rush. May want to buy an indoor trainer if you don't have one. Things may start to suck big time.

Party on!
In this supporter video I go into the phenomenon of emptying prisons - and how the world might soon look like what is happening in Iran, without careful measures. The link I talk about to the website that has many videos from China etc., can be found here: https://archive.nothingburger.today/

You don't know anything about me either, nor do you have all the answers. Paul is giving a medical estimation and an opinion on how crises can be manipulated, something societal managers know and are adept at. I'm not saying he's right, I'm saying it happens and has happened before. Now we're done.

It's interesting how these terms, aka "Boomer", come into common parlance. Billy Joel's "We didn't start the Fire" kind of addressed it; a younger generation blaming their problems in the World on an older generation. Boomer, in the young's minds, is clearly a derogatory term towards a certain age group, just like when Boomers called someone a "Square" in the 60's. I see it as perpetuation of divide and conquer strife; adding salt to the wound of the generation gap. I'm concerned for the younger generation and try to offer them meaningful advice on how to manage their future, and offer them some perspective. I ask them to try and think what they will be called when they are "Boomer" age.

Yea ... not exactly the greatest generation. But as my son points out, we are to blame for raising them. And it certainly not all of that generation that feel so entitled ... only the more whiny of them, and as usual, they are the ones making the most noise.

Really disappointed in way humanity is behaving as of late ...
