I just wish whoever writes these articles would learn grammar and how to spell. I see this Observer guy is a hateful idiot. He must work for the PRD and uses this web page to further their agenda.

Sorry, meant “ultimate unknown, death” not “Ultimate known”. Here’s an idea, why not order hazmat suits for all C-19 healthcare workers—they start their shift with it on, in between patients, they enter either a passage chamber with O3 (ozone) or UV, exit fully sterilized to treat the next patient. End of shift, decontaminate suit, change into civies and go safely home knowing you won’t contaminate your waiting family members. Problem solved.

JB, don’t you mean anti-social distancing. Am doing more research on whether on not masks provide protection for the wearer. And I know you appreciate that mask-wearing amounts to a symbol of FEAR — every time we put one on, we are acknowledging that fear and everytime we see a mask wearer, our brain confirms FEAR; a subtle but powerful manipulation of the masses. As you probably know, fear (especially of the ultimate known, death) is a powerful motivator for mass compliance throughout history.

Where are the social distancing police during this protest? From the photo several people are closer than 2 meters. These people need to be tracked down and arrested like the peoole who protested Jimmy's restaurant being opened and used for a PRD meeting! I guess you only get tracked down and arrested if you protest the marxists! How ya liking the "new normal" so far?
