(Thanks to commenter Alarmist for turning me on to the Off Guardian and the myriad Kung Flu PanicFest memes therein.)

I have detested the precedent set by all of this liberty-destroying LOCKDOWN, social-distancing, face-diapering, fear-mongering activity that is the essence of the Kung Flu PanicFest from Day 1. (I'd call it mid-March of '20.) However, after that Season 2 Summer '20 Re-Panic*, then a tail-off by late fall, with the election "won" and all, then the panicker-placating deadly vaccines, I really thought this show had run it's course, like a bad case of the common cold(?). That didn't mean the damage was undone, but at least I didn't have to hear or think about it. Even Peak Stupidity tailed off our posts on this subject.

Well, as the young lady in Poltergeist, who also watched too much TV, said, "they're Baa-aaack". "They" even includes Panic Maestro Anthony Fauci. I do not kid when I write here that I had not heard more than 10 or 20 words strung together from this man during this whole ordeal until yesterday. I'd always walk, briskly at the slowest, away from whatever idiot plate I had come near with the guy on. My wife, who's been a real trooper on the anti-panic side in '21, a completer reversal from the miserable Spring of '20**, showed me Fauci blabbing on about our new worries on her phone.

I hadn't even known he had the NE accent - that's how little I'd paid attention to the Totalitarian fucker before. This Delta variant is supposed to be a big worry now, the vaccine, even if it doesn't maim or kill you, is not helping at all, and maybe even increasing your chances of being a case (nut case? Some kind of case.) Yeah, sure, all that is concerning, but if you get the death stab, you are a hero, so there's that ...

At the end of Season 2, we were pretty sure we got the ending. Man, what surprises they had in store for us with this new season! The bats did not kill J.R. after all. The vaccine will not save Ewing Oil from Sue Ellen's shenanigans. The face diapers, well, I'm not sure how they will fit in at South Fork, but as long as they still have that cute dark haired lady and young Lucy with the big 'uns, they may be able to hold a big audience.

The script from Dr. Fauci is all over the place though now. So, what do we do, get the stabs, take our masks back out of the recycling bins, don't LOCKDOWN just yet, and what else? That clip my wife showed me was a crapload of total confusion from the guy. Is he STILL the guy that really knows WTF is going on? Should even the suckers who believed him through Season 2 believe him now? Will they? The Summer Olympics are on too, you know. Do they still have TiVo's around for people who want to keep up with both?

I really hope that the number of Season 3 viewers is much lower, as the good scriptwriters must have gone on strike. Could Americans finally have their own press conferences, as the blurb from commenter Adam Smith sounded like, and tell the producers that enough is enough, and this show sucks and should be taken off the air? I am encouraged by some video of the French people and the French cops siding with them. I'd love to not only see a lot of that here but be a part of it too.

In the meantime, Peak Stupidity has its work cut out for it. We will monitor the (shit)shows of Season 3, and get right on it like Beavis and Butthead watching MTV.

* Peak Stupidity had a 13-part series on Scene(s) from the Kung Flu Summer re-Panic, now buried within our Kung Flu Stupidity topic key. (Well, it became Fall, you know ...)

** This is NOT about the vaccine either. She will not take it and maybe even run into the workplace dilemmas we have been discussing in the comments.

PS Oh yeah, easily two hours to get from Boston to Provincetown; more on a Friday night (those bridges are a MAJOR bottleneck). I never did that whole drive in one go; my destination was usually Brewster (where my uncle owned a campground) or Falmouth (where my first wife's parents lived). Took around 90 minutes to get from Boston to either of those.

Good evening, all.

@Mr. Robert, I now get trusting nobody over the age of 30 ... does that mean I’m still part of the problem ;)

PS: Greetings all. When I was a little kid, I thought that adults might be a little odd, but that those in charge knew what they were doing. Now I fear that I was right.

Mr. Moderator: the band is more Company than Dead these days Jerry, Pig Pen, Keith, and Vince have all shed their mortal coils. Phil’s not long for this world either, if my reports are accurate. The guys they’ve brought in, particularly Little Johnny Mayer are quite good though. I hope I get to see them. Perhaps they’ll do “Corona Corona” (Where ya been so long?)

PS. Mister Rex is correct about the Cape- and as Sailer points out Provincetown has a somewhat peculiar characteristic that might or might not be relevant- think the Castro, Key West, or 32nd St Beach on Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis.

Mr. Blanc I was delighted to find that Lou Malnati’s has a take out store in Greenfield, WI, a mere stone’s throw from my son’s house in Franklin. Deeee-lish!

Mr. Smith, as I suspected. As we were leaving Bradley Airport on our way home a guy was getting into it with the (non native English-speaking) airport security over masks. You go Boy!

My position is no more masks. I’m not doing it.

PS: Rex, I've been there myself. Technically, Cape Cod is an island, as the Cape Cod Canal goes from Cape Cod Sound through to Buzzard's Bay (both part of the Atlantic Ocean). Without the 2 bridges, on the #28 and the US-6, it would really be.

Hyannis is the most well-known town on the lower, E-W portion, and it goes around way up to the north and ends in Provincetown, mentioned by Steve Sailer today. It's quite the drive to go all the way around from Boston*, while a small plane can come from one of the many Boston area airports and get there in 20-30 minutes. Sailing there from Plymouth or Boston would be cool too. You don't HAVE to be gay to visit, but I suppose it sure helps, haha.

* Maybe 2 hours or more, depending on traffic - you can tell me better probably, Rex.

PS A small nitpick: Cape Cod is not a resort town; it's a peninsula containing at least nine cities and towns (that's just how many I remember off the top of my head; I'm sure I forgot a couple). I grew up in Massachusetts and spent many a summer on the Cape.

The worst part is, rather than admit the errors of their ways, and then taking a deep breath and follow the Swedish example, our sociopath “leaders” are going to insist on playing lockdown-and-vaxx whack-a-mole on what will become a never-ending series of semi-annual scariants.

Well, it’s either sociopathy, or they really are reaching for the “brass ring” of mass depopulation. When nearly every developed nation government is following the same suicidal course of action, one cannot help but wonder if we are looking at pure evil rather than mere psychotic stupidity.

Welcome to your subscription life.

PS: Good afternoon again,
And good afternoon Mr. Ganderson...

“Is it really a law, passed by a legislative body and signed by an executive; or is it, as I suspect, a directive from the CDC or FAA, or an executive order from a governor, or the Dementia Patient in Chief?”

Apparently it is a pair of executive orders, one from the Dementia Patient in Chief and one from the CDC...

(Since when does the CDC have the authority to make executive orders?)

Executive orders can only be given to federal or state agencies, not to citizens, although citizens are indirectly affected by them. I noticed quite a few articles erroneously referring to these executive orders as “Federal Law” or other such nonsense. They are what I would call “Color of Law”, something the people masquerading as “government” simply luv, luv, luv to use as a weapon against the people they lord over.

Such heavy use of executive orders and other mandates is yet another dangerous precedent set by this liberty-destroying KungFlu PanicFest.

I hope everyone has a great evening/rest of the weekend.

PS: Good afternoon everyone, Mr. Moderator...

“This Delta variant is supposed to be a big worry now, the vaccine, even if it doesn't maim or kill you, is not helping at all, and maybe even increasing your chances of being a case...”

Whoa there... Easy with the conspiracy stuff... The vaccine is a miracle! A miraculous miracle!
The rise in new covid cases among the vaccinated is proof that the vaccines work!

Seriously though, even the CDC is starting to notice that vaccines spread disease...

“In a study of 469 cases of Covid-19 that broke out in the resort town of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, earlier this month, 74% occurred in “fully vaccinated persons.” Four out of five patients hospitalized were fully vaccinated, and on average the inoculated had completed their two rounds of doses only 86 days before infection.”

From the study...

“In July 2021, following multiple large public events in a Barnstable County, Massachusetts, town, 469 COVID-19 cases were identified among Massachusetts residents who had traveled to the town during July 3–17; 346 (74%) occurred in fully vaccinated persons.”

“Overall, 274 (79%) vaccinated patients with breakthrough infection were symptomatic. Among five COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized, four were fully vaccinated; no deaths were reported.”

“Real-time reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) cycle threshold (Ct) values in specimens from 127 vaccinated persons with breakthrough cases were similar to those from 84 persons who were unvaccinated, not fully vaccinated, or whose vaccination status was unknown.”

“Asymptomatic breakthrough infections might be underrepresented because of detection bias.”

Ars Technica reports...

“Vaccinated people were found to be spreading the dangerous virus variant to other vaccinated people.” (This also means that the vaccinated are spreading the virus to unvaccinated people.)

“Nationwide, the CDC estimated that there are 35,000 symptomatic breakthrough infections per week among 162 million fully vaccinated Americans.”

In related news, Dr. Henry Ting would like us to call it the B.1.617.2 variant (since that is so much more simple to say and remember) while Ed Bastian simply calls it “the variant”.

PS: Bill, nobody requires them here either, but I don't want to even see a quorum wearing the things. I want to see people with some backbone. Are they going to have to redo the HOA meeting, or did they just pull a Jekyll Isle?

Mr. Blanc, good to hear from you. The leftists have fewer jobs and responsibility, but then, that's just not a good enough excuse for you grandchildren to hear later ... in the camps, as they burned ... [/Solzhenitsyn]

PS: Thanks for the anecdotes, Mr. Ganderson. I did not catch that one on unz yet - I'll look for it in a bit. I am so glad we have it close to normal still where I live, and I hope it stays that way. I don't think people are up to another round of the BS... unless it's not up to them.

Regarding the airplanes and airports: What I've seen is in the smaller airport boarding areas, which are basically holding pens, quite a few passengers will keep their masks off even when not taking that sip of Coke. They've had enough, but they don't want to get in trouble on the planes and in the hub airport terminals (too many official type people walking around). Do you know that it is the TSA that is responsible for enforcing this law/whatever? (Though, that's not for on-board, of course.) You couldn't have picked a more appropriate outfit.

There was some talk about this masking on the A/C and terminals ending in September, but that was just before this latest variant hysteria push. I don't know what kind of bill was actually passed on it, or if it was an E.O. - a BS concept to begin with.

Man, if those guys can live through hundreds of doses of Windowpane™, I think think the Kung Flu shouldn't phase Bobby, Phil, Mickey, Billy, and whichever keyboard player has not OD'd yet. ;-} OTOH, they do sing something like "if the COVID don't get you, then the lightning will".

PS: Yeah, maybe I should have had a movie theme, Alarmist, nd I couldn't really remember much of that "Dallas" show.

Yep, I was riding on that very thing.. "The lecturing, stabbings and jabbings will continue until compliance improves."

Haha, the Return of the Science, ... in a galaxy far, far, away...

PS So far, San Diego is mostly ignoring the "everyone must mask indoors" thing. I was at the grocery store yesterday, postal store, barber, and auto parts store, and none required masks.

On the other hand our HOA annual meeting was cancelled and held on Zoom and board members present were all masked, but the board is a bunch of Nazis anyway, so... To add the the comedy, they handed out flyers which contained the wrong "meeting number," so people were frantically calling board members on their cell phones screaming, "I can't get in." President of the board thought it was funny.

Posted this over at Sailer’s:

Masking has made a big comeback in my moonbat college town (Department of Redundancy Department); it’s only a matter of time before indoor masking will be required, followed by an outdoor masking requirement. Many other Massachusetts towns in the “coalition of the moonbats” (P-town, Cambridge, Brookline, and soon, Northampton) have reintroduced mask requirements, and our local school administration has stated that while school will be open in the fall, all students and staff will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccine status. I guess the tin foil hatters are right, the vaccine doesn’t work, that’s why we have to wear masks. But you better get the COVID 9 Vactine, as Slow Joe put it.

(I think I just set some kind of record for the number of times using the term ‘mask’ in a paragraph)

Oh, and I’d lay some odds that the Dead and Company show at Citi Field on 20 August that I have tix for will not be happening. On the other hand, if the show does go on I’ll be interested in hearing “Brown-Eyed Women” sung through a face diaper.

And another thing: I flew earlier in the week, and in the airports and on the planes they kept yammering on about how Federal law requires that masks be on at all times, except when one is actually depositing food into one’s yap. Take a bite or drink, put the mask back on. Is it really a law, passed by a legislative body and signed by an executive; or is it, as I suspect, a directive from the CDC or FAA, or an executive order from a governor, or the Dementia Patient in Chief?

To put this in a Star Wars-like taxonomy, this new series or sequel could be called “The Empire Strikes Back.” It is revenge against those of us free-riding on the New Hope of the vaxxes without actually taking them. The beatings and the vaxxes will continue until compliance improves.

Stayed tuned for the next sequel, as people start to drop off in larger numbers from the damage caused by the vaxxes ... let’s call it “The Return of the Science.”
