You'll get a kick out of this. I went to a local antivaxxers meeting and they were out of their frikkin minds. Left wing, organically obsessed, crystal clutching, kooks. Also almost all over 65 and fat as hell.

I don't think they knew what to make of me. I disagreed that the financial system is collapsing, and disagreed that an appropriate remedy is to stash all your money under your mattress.

They also didn't appreciate that I intend to take a RAT test every day before going to work in someone's house. Told me I would be complying. Well, no, it's a decision I'm making on my own because it makes my business more marketable, not because someone ordered me to do it, and no one has ordered that anyway. You get to make your own decisions. That's the whole point, right? They weren't sure how to reply to that but they didn't like me, lol.

Tribalism on all sides.


Yeah, the same people buying organic are loving them some vaxxx that they have no idea what is in it. Very similar to below.

Why didn’t they want to get vaccinated?

I didn't hear a single medically relevant reason. Nor did I hear any discussion of other prophylactic or treatment options.

It hardly got discussed, which I found odd, but maybe they'd gone over it in past meetings. One girl, who seems to have taken control of the group and is straight out of an Antifa riot, yapped endlessly about forming a food co-op dedicated to organic produce, and how judges are terrified of defendants who can quote Common Law. She was completely bonkers.

The vast majority were just larping boomers. Marshmallows who sit around on their comfy retirement nest egg all day. All their "I will not comply" (which everyone except me quoted in cult member fashion during introductions, and I was immediately thinking uh-oh)... that'll go straight out the window as soon as fines start being issued. Theae are not hardcore people by nature, and they have no empirical basis for their beliefs.

I'm more Cool Hand Luke. Just not as cool. And my decisions are founded on my best assessment (which could be wrong) of medical risks vs benefits, not kooky shit about Freemasons and aliens and how Joe Biden is an actor with a mask on. Nutbars.

It was interesting to observe how a group of lunatics might have evolved tho. I'd guess more moderate people have attended in the past and, like me, never returned, so it ends up sifting membership for maximal craziness.

Generally, yes. Socialism requires the belief that the government is benevolent and omniscient, so I'm not that surprised that left wing people want government policy obeyed.

The one I saw was another kind of nut tho. Get this: She wanted people to form co-op food groups of 8 people each ( because 8 is a magical number - not kidding, she said it) and she wants to call the groups Free Cells.


You... want to form groups opposed to government policy... and you want to call them Cells. Are you fucking retarded?

Really doubt I'll be going back, lol.

I wouldn't think so. Most people have perfectly rational concerns and questions. People like my clients whose daughter ended up in hospital with excruciating chest pains in days following Pfizer, but she and they still have to take quarterly boosters or they're all fired. I think the next trend is resentment by the manditorily vaccinated.

And I think the proper approach is to reach out to such people and let them have a voice. The wrong approach is to circle wagons, retreat from civilization to a mountaintop and live as a law unto yourselves, which seemed to be what the crazies I met were intending.

I step on prob 10 nails a year on job sites,usually rusty ones and the last tetanus shot I had was 20 years ago. Last year I had two nails go from bottom thru top of foot.fuck tetanus.

I agree, fuck tetanus.  That's why I keep up on my shots.  ;D

Seriously though why do you step on so many nails?  I work construction too and it's happened once, and I tore the guy who didn't bend the nails over a new asshole.  I've shot myself w the nailgun four times though

Him being my “President” and not complying with anything he or the left have to say are two totally completely things. For the most part I laugh because I told you so lololololo

Just like you told us about the fake birth certificate, Hillary going to jail, Obama resigning, the sex ring under the pizza parlor, etc.. etc.. etc...

You laugh because you are retarded and can't do anything else.

He's still your President.

My assessment was that they were at risk people, being old and fat, and they should take the shots, lol.

Their meat, their choice, their consequence tho.

I think the confusion comes from you posting that they were "left wing" when most often antivaxers are right wing.

I read or heard somewhere that RAT tests are or will be free, that is if we ever get access to them. "Oregon promised at-home coronavirus test kits. Where are they?"

Lukewarm Hand Luke? ;D

As for your last sentence, I think that may stand for most self-organised quasi-political groups - there is a need to demonstrate obedience/compliance/commitment to the cause, so any lukewarm handed people are perceived with suspicion - these new people notice that and either drift away again or ramp up their responses to gain acceptance.  A bit like new gang members having to cold cock a stranger or survive a beating or hazing or something to gain admission... it's all tribalism, cults, etc. isn't it



Weirdest AA meeting I've ever heard of.  ;D

Be careful though - last time I saw a left wing minge it was an epic fur-burger - belonging to this thing.  I didn't need to post this, but it's sooo funny ;D

There's no confusion. I was there. I met them. They're hardcore hippies. Half of them were costumed up like they were at Woodstock. Organic food co-ops, aboriginal land rights, etc. They're left wing liberals.

I would guess they regard vaccine mandates as the actions of a fascist government, although no one said so explicitly. That seems like a sensible position to me. I'm confused how US liberals have come to support authoritarian intrusion in matters of bodily autonomy.

I don’t know why I step on so many nails but it’s usually pieces of trim or siding or shingles broken off hidden in flower beds or higher grass areas around houses that had nothing to do with us. I expect it now. Most crews are lazy sacks of shit and just toss stuff. My buddy has nailed himself to plywood a few times with a nail gun doing roofing hahah.

Lol, nice. I'm going with Tepid Hand Tape.

I'm tempted to go back just to see what hilarity ensues. Proof of vax requirements have since been announced for lots of places so they'll really be frothing.

That's bad, man. When I had a tetanus booster after I stepped on one, the doc asked me if horses were around the area. Guess that ups the risk a lot

Reckon a bootmaker could put in a kevlar layer? Maybe they could do it like that dragonskin armor with overlapping pieces to permit articulation.

I've always wanted a pair of Nicks or Whites but the pricetag is painful. For that kinda dough tho maybe they'd accomodate you.

Interesting. I've read this too. I've also heard it is because they've had poor medical treatment in the past so they don't trust medical science or doctors.

If you actually left your lily white neighborhood and conversed with a minority, you would see that they don't trust the government.

Poor medical treatment is a bit of an understatement.  Start with The Tuskegee Experiment and go from the there.  It's less about trusting the medical community and more about not trusting the government.
