1. PJ Watson on the vaccine passport. This really must be watched. This is not the usual sarcastic series of jokes of logical extremes. This is what is now, and what will be, and what the powerful are openly building.
(Dennis Prager is someone I listen to on walks and runs many times a week. He is one of the most rational and insightful people out there and certainly on mass market radio)
When I see people walking outside, often alone with no one anywhere near them, wearing a mask, my primary reactions are disappointment and sadness.
I am disappointed because I expected better from my fellow Americans. I never thought most Americans would be governed by irrational fears and unquestioning obedience to authority. I have come to realize that I had a somewhat romanticized view of my countrymen.
Had you told me a year ago that nearly every American in nearly every metropolitan area would cover their faces for over a year because one man, one political party and the media told them to, I would have responded that you underestimate the strength of the American character.
But here we are, over a year later, and where I live (the Los Angeles area), I am usually the only person on the street not wearing a mask. (For the record, I wear a mask in stores and when entering the building in which I work, out of courtesy to those who think a person not wearing a mask poses a lethal threat.)
On the rare occasions I pass people not wearing a mask, I thank and praise them. They are invariably enthused by my reaction.
You do not need medical or scientific expertise to understand the foolishness of outdoor mask-wearing. Common sense, that great unused guide to life, suffices.
3. CNN France shows some of the footage of elites and cabinet members breaking Covid rules in secret, just like the California governor did along with the SanFrancisco mayor, and of course, that Italian judge. What does it mean when the people most in the know break their own rules in the most lavish fashion?
