Everything about PROGS is fake. I'm open to a test on that, say something PROGS believe in, anything will do, we'll have some fun with it.
Sorry asshole but the KKK always was and always will be a democratic party effort, just as Jim Crow and lots of other racially motivated bullshit. I'm from the south so I know just exactly who they are, who they've always been and who they always will be. I've also seen the clan live and in person so there's no mistake.
Yes, the KKK grew from the conservative south in the Bible Belt which many years ago, was mostly Democrat.

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."

2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.
The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Yet you still have 275k deaths and rising to account for, dope.
So much for your statistical prowess.
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
The average is irrelevant to the 275k deaths you deny.
How many lives are required to satisfy your freedom? How many families must sacrifice members because dopes like you can’t bother to wear a mask for 15 or 30 minutes?

That is stupid. If you take total deaths of every disease for the year and see how many people die every day from something, then you can see how ridiculous the focus on one silly virus has been. And these numbers would be even less impactful if not for the ignorant mishandling by 6 Democrat states contributing almost half the total. The overall death rate for this virus is now 1.9%....soon it will be 1.5% then sub 1% and eventually once everyone is done getting tested now that they can, the flu. You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.

If you think this pandemic is nonsense, then feel free to visit some Covid patients at your local hospital.

Also, feel free not to wear any protective gear when you do.
Of the 102 infected coworkers I knew, I couldn't visit any of them in the hospital because they were home getting over the leftyflu in a week or 10 days. You go visit your imaginary friends in the hospital.
So you're saying that you're scared to go to the Hospital.
Why would I go to the hospital with no symptoms?
To verify that there are no critical patients as you seem to believe.

Or to verify that you're an idiot.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
So...by your logic, the mortality rate is 1.9% but critical patients are only .46%? So those dying aren’t critical cases?
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.
You just lack the ability to interpret them competently.
Simple math of actual numbers nothing to "interpret". See thats the problem, you libbers let the propaganda machine media do the interpreting for you.

Yes, competently. By experts in their field. Not internet morons who are failed human beings that are unable to navigate modern life competently.
You dopes are so twisted that there are actually folks like you who are literally on their deathbed with COVID who still refuse to believe it’s real.
You’re like the Germans who couldn’t believe what they saw when the death camps were liberated. “ We didn’t know”.

If you think this pandemic is nonsense, then feel free to visit some Covid patients at your local hospital.

Also, feel free not to wear any protective gear when you do.
Of the 102 infected coworkers I knew, I couldn't visit any of them in the hospital because they were home getting over the leftyflu in a week or 10 days. You go visit your imaginary friends in the hospital.
So you're saying that you're scared to go to the Hospital.
Why would I go to the hospital with no symptoms?
To verify that there are no critical patients as you seem to believe.

Or to verify that you're an idiot.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
So...by your logic, the mortality rate is 1.9% but critical patients are only .46%? So those dying aren’t critical cases?
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.

You just lack the ability to interpret them competently.
Simple math of actual numbers nothing to "interpret". See thats the problem, you libbers let the propaganda machine media do the interpreting for you.

Yes, competently. By experts in their field. Not internet morons who are failed human beings that are unable to navigate modern life competently.
You dopes are so twisted that there are actually folks like you who are literally on their deathbed with COVID who still refuse to believe it’s real.
You’re like the Germans who couldn’t believe what they saw when the death camps were liberated. “ We didn’t know”.
You call me a dope yet you are the one hiding in your basement with a mask because some "expert" told you to. Sure some people die from this many more die from other more dangerous diseases, a simple fact. You can't hide from this virus or any of the others and trying to is just moronic.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.

“I Think It's Time To End This COVID Hysteria: Change My Mind”


2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.
The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Yet you still have 275k deaths and rising to account for, dope.
So much for your statistical prowess.
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
The average is irrelevant to the 275k deaths you deny.
How many lives are required to satisfy your freedom? How many families must sacrifice members because dopes like you can’t bother to wear a mask for 15 or 30 minutes?
That is stupid. If you take total deaths of every disease for the year and see how many people die every day from something, then you can see how ridiculous the focus on one silly virus has been. And these numbers would be even less impactful if not for the ignorant mishandling by 6 Democrat states contributing almost half the total. The overall death rate for this virus is now 1.9%....soon it will be 1.5% then sub 1% and eventually once everyone is done getting tested now that they can, the flu. You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.
You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.
275k deaths is dramatic to functional people. It’s the Dems who’ve been trying all year to get COVID relief funds to people, dope.

All except for Pelosi and the Dems in Congress though right? And I would offer up that the loss of millions and millions of jobs affecting families is more impactful than the death total which is questionable at best anyway.

For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."

If you think this pandemic is nonsense, then feel free to visit some Covid patients at your local hospital.

Also, feel free not to wear any protective gear when you do.
Of the 102 infected coworkers I knew, I couldn't visit any of them in the hospital because they were home getting over the leftyflu in a week or 10 days. You go visit your imaginary friends in the hospital.
So you're saying that you're scared to go to the Hospital.
Why would I go to the hospital with no symptoms?
To verify that there are no critical patients as you seem to believe.

Or to verify that you're an idiot.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
So...by your logic, the mortality rate is 1.9% but critical patients are only .46%? So those dying aren’t critical cases?
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.

You just lack the ability to interpret them competently.
Simple math of actual numbers nothing to "interpret". See thats the problem, you libbers let the propaganda machine media do the interpreting for you.

Yes, competently. By experts in their field. Not internet morons who are failed human beings that are unable to navigate modern life competently.
You dopes are so twisted that there are actually folks like you who are literally on their deathbed with COVID who still refuse to believe it’s real.
You’re like the Germans who couldn’t believe what they saw when the death camps were liberated. “ We didn’t know”.
You call me a dope yet you are the one hiding in your basement with a mask because some "expert" told you to. Sure some people die from this many more die from other more dangerous diseases, a simple fact. You can't hide from this virus or any of the others and trying to is just moronic.

I don’t hide, dope. I simply wear a mask and respect people’s space. It’s simple for those who are mature. Being a whiney twat over a mask is simply retarded.

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:

Oh really? I have been doing that for about 20 years myself especially during flu season, along with anyone I know who has common sense. But since we also know wearing a mask makes you sicker if you are sick, we don't wear the silly things. So before Covid you used to run all up on people and cough and sneeze in their face?

“I Think It's Time To End This COVID Hysteria: Change My Mind”


2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.
The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Yet you still have 275k deaths and rising to account for, dope.
So much for your statistical prowess.
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
The average is irrelevant to the 275k deaths you deny.
How many lives are required to satisfy your freedom? How many families must sacrifice members because dopes like you can’t bother to wear a mask for 15 or 30 minutes?
That is stupid. If you take total deaths of every disease for the year and see how many people die every day from something, then you can see how ridiculous the focus on one silly virus has been. And these numbers would be even less impactful if not for the ignorant mishandling by 6 Democrat states contributing almost half the total. The overall death rate for this virus is now 1.9%....soon it will be 1.5% then sub 1% and eventually once everyone is done getting tested now that they can, the flu. You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.
You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.
275k deaths is dramatic to functional people. It’s the Dems who’ve been trying all year to get COVID relief funds to people, dope.
All except for Pelosi and the Dems in Congress though right? And I would offer up that the loss of millions and millions of jobs affecting families is more impactful than the death total which is questionable at best anyway.
All except for Pelosi and the Dems in Congress though right?
Of course you would lie about this or are just too stupid to know the difference. McConnell just turned down yet another offer. The Dems have made at least a dozen offers, dope.

If you think this pandemic is nonsense, then feel free to visit some Covid patients at your local hospital.

Also, feel free not to wear any protective gear when you do.
Of the 102 infected coworkers I knew, I couldn't visit any of them in the hospital because they were home getting over the leftyflu in a week or 10 days. You go visit your imaginary friends in the hospital.
So you're saying that you're scared to go to the Hospital.
Why would I go to the hospital with no symptoms?
To verify that there are no critical patients as you seem to believe.

Or to verify that you're an idiot.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
So...by your logic, the mortality rate is 1.9% but critical patients are only .46%? So those dying aren’t critical cases?
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.

You just lack the ability to interpret them competently.
Simple math of actual numbers nothing to "interpret". See thats the problem, you libbers let the propaganda machine media do the interpreting for you.

Yes, competently. By experts in their field. Not internet morons who are failed human beings that are unable to navigate modern life competently.
You dopes are so twisted that there are actually folks like you who are literally on their deathbed with COVID who still refuse to believe it’s real.
You’re like the Germans who couldn’t believe what they saw when the death camps were liberated. “ We didn’t know”.
You call me a dope yet you are the one hiding in your basement with a mask because some "expert" told you to. Sure some people die from this many more die from other more dangerous diseases, a simple fact. You can't hide from this virus or any of the others and trying to is just moronic.

I don’t hide, dope. I simply wear a mask and respect people’s space. It’s simple for those who are mature. Being a whiney twat over a mask is simply retarded.
And the whiney twat is calling me a what??

Everything about PROGS is fake. I'm open to a test on that, say something PROGS believe in, anything will do, we'll have some fun with it.
Sorry asshole but the KKK always was and always will be a democratic party effort, just as Jim Crow and lots of other racially motivated bullshit. I'm from the south so I know just exactly who they are, who they've always been and who they always will be. I've also seen the clan live and in person so there's no mistake.
and democrats also support BLM?

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."
“I Think It's Time To End This COVID Hysteria: Change My Mind”


2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.

The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Yet you still have 275k deaths and rising to account for, dope.
So much for your statistical prowess.
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
The average is irrelevant to the 275k deaths you deny.
How many lives are required to satisfy your freedom? How many families must sacrifice members because dopes like you can’t bother to wear a mask for 15 or 30 minutes?
That is stupid. If you take total deaths of every disease for the year and see how many people die every day from something, then you can see how ridiculous the focus on one silly virus has been. And these numbers would be even less impactful if not for the ignorant mishandling by 6 Democrat states contributing almost half the total. The overall death rate for this virus is now 1.9%....soon it will be 1.5% then sub 1% and eventually once everyone is done getting tested now that they can, the flu. You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.
You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.
275k deaths is dramatic to functional people. It’s the Dems who’ve been trying all year to get COVID relief funds to people, dope.
All except for Pelosi and the Dems in Congress though right? And I would offer up that the loss of millions and millions of jobs affecting families is more impactful than the death total which is questionable at best anyway.
All except for Pelosi and the Dems in Congress though right?
Of course you would lie about this or are just too stupid to know the difference. McConnell just turned down yet another offer. The Dems have made at least a dozen offers, dope.
Riiigght, and all in the interest of simply getting relief out to Covid victims......funny how you call me your names.

Oh really? I have been doing that for about 20 years myself especially during flu season, along with anyone I know who has common sense. But since we also know wearing a mask makes you sicker if you are sick, we don't wear the silly things. So before Covid you used to run all up on people and cough and sneeze in their face?

The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.

All except for Pelosi and the Dems in Congress though right? And I would offer up that the loss of millions and millions of jobs affecting families is more impactful than the death total which is questionable at best anyway.

Of course you would lie about this or are just too stupid to know the difference. McConnell just turned down yet another offer. The Dems have made at least a dozen offers, dope.
The best thing you zombie virus Chicken Littles can do is let these folks go back and get jobs and work to support their families.

Clearly the Dems used a fake pandemic to steal an election. Without the fear they generated to trick people into using mail-in ballots they wouldn't have been able to use Domination software to steal the election in battleground states like PA, AZ, MI, GA, and WI.
So the only reason they would have to continue this total farce is if they fully intend on destroying the economy. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting tired of this nonsense.

Coronavirus Hysteria Is Simply Too Ridiculous to Continue
The ignorance and the lies concerning the Wuhan virus can't continue much longer, because time is simply revealing the truth about it. As we continue to suffer under foolish Wuhan virus restrictions, and as many parts of the U.S. — especially those under the rule of Democrats — are again ramping up the shutdowns and the lockdowns, more and more Americans are beginning to see what many of us have long known: the Wuhan virus data simply don't match the Wuhan virus hysteria. The evidence of this continues to pile up.
As they near the end of the first semester, U.S. schools provide some of the best evidence for those sick of shutdown politics and propaganda. In spite of millions of U.S. students attending in-person classes, nowhere in America are school-aged students suffering in any significant way from the Wuhan virus. And don't tell me about "cases." As I've long noted when it comes to the Wuhan virus, cases without context are meaningless.
Andrew Bostom again provides us with some important context on Wuhan virus cases. As of early October, in spite of nearly seventy thousand reported Wuhan virus "cases" across 50 U.S. colleges and universities, there were only three hospitalizations and zero deaths! Almost certainly, numbers across all of America's K–12 schools are similar. We can be nearly certain that if this were not the case, a media establishment desperate to further the shutdown narrative would tell us so. (The media have already been caught multiple times publishing fake news on this matter.)
Months-old data out of Europe told us that schoolchildren were in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. As City Journal recently reported:
For young students, the risk of dying from Covid is lower than the risk of dying from the flu, and researchers have repeatedly found that children do not easily transmit the virus to adults. The clearest evidence comes from Sweden, which did not close elementary schools or junior high schools during the spring Covid wave, and which did not reduce class sizes or encourage students and teachers to wear face masks.
Not a single child died, and there was little effect beyond the schools, as a team of Swedish economists reports after analyzing records of Covid infections and medical treatment for the entire Swedish population.
Even Dr. "follow the science" Fauci finally agrees that schoolchildren are not significant spreaders of the Wuhan virus! Yet, in U.S. schools, sporting events continue to get postponed or canceled, and many schools remain in remote learning mode or are threatening to move back in that direction. Again, every instance of this is driven by "cases." Yet the vast majority of students and student-athletes are not getting sick, and if they are, they are certainly not sick to the point of death or even hospitalization. The longer this pandemic propaganda continues, the longer it becomes clear that shutting down schools and athletic events is nothing more than a political stunt perpetuated by leftist authoritarians, or at least an ignorant reaction to the left's Wuhan virus fear mongering.
The same is true for the lockdowns imposed on businesses and churches. As is the case with schools, there is still zero evidence that churches and businesses are in any way significantly complicit in the spread of the Wuhan virus. As RedState reported recently:
[T]here was never a shred of scientific evidence that putting healthy people in quarantine would do anything to ameliorate the spread of COVD-19. Moreover, everything we knew about viruses made the idea of quarantining people who aren't sick completely absurd.
Even the CDC's most recent pandemic planning guide from 2017 admitted that "direct evidence for the effectiveness of these measures is limited." And by "limited" they meant non-existent. There wasn't a single study that supports the idea that quarantining healthy people was going to do a damn thing to stop a virus from spreading.
The European Centre for Disease Control's summary of the research was more honest. They noted that "there are few, if any, empirical data underpinning" the assumptions that workplace closures do anything to stop viruses from spreading. Indeed, they found no evidence for the effectiveness of any social distancing measures.
In spite of the science and the months of real-time data that proved it unnecessary, the left has persisted with shutting down businesses and churches. As a result of these state-enforced lockdowns, hundreds of thousands of small businesses in the U.S. have shut down — many of them permanently.
Data from late September show that between March 1 and August 31, a total of 163,735 businesses on Yelp — which is especially representative of small businesses — closed. According to Yelp, about 60 percent of these businesses (nearly 98,000) will never reopen. The Yelp data reveal that small restaurants and retail stores have been hit particularly hard. It has made zero sense that Walmart, Target, Home Depot — none of whom were requiring masks as late as middle July — and the like have been allowed to remain open, while your local diner, gun store, or gym was forced to close.
"Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.
It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.
Masks are not merely a small inconvenience. They have inadvertently become a key impediment to returning to a more normal life, a desirable goal for those seeking to twist the pandemic for political and electoral purposes.
Masks dehumanize us, and ironically serve as a constant reminder that we should be afraid. People can now be spotted wearing masks while camping by themselves in the woods or on a solo sailing trip. They have become a cruel device on young children everywhere, kindergarten students covered by masks and isolated by Plexiglas, struggling to understand the social expressions of their peers. Face coverings are causing real harm to the American psyche, provide little to no medical benefit, and distract us from more important health policy issues."
“I Think It's Time To End This COVID Hysteria: Change My Mind”


2,777 deaths just yesterday.
And the mortality rate dropped another notch to 1.9%. Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing? Hmmm maybe they aren't increasing at all.
Now how can the death rate decrease if in fact deaths are increasing?
Because the number of new infections is rising exponentially, dope.
Well dope that is because of over 2 million tests a day being done at a 7% positivity rate, and those "infections" cause the actual mortality and critical case rates to keep declining. So dope, the new infections are causing the decline as opposed to the rise. Dope.

The mortality rate is the number of deaths relative to the number of cases. It has declined because the number of infected has grown very quickly. Positivity rates are as high as 50% in some areas.
As the number of cases has risen, so have deaths. More than ever.
The number of deaths have risen steeply but at a lower rate relative to the number of infections which has grown exponentially in the last month.

Get it now, dope?
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Well, dope....let me see.....if the number of so called deaths never keeps pace with the number of asymptomatic cases, guess what? The leftyvirus is proved to be a hoax! Dope.
Yet you still have 275k deaths and rising to account for, dope.
So much for your statistical prowess.
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
And 2 million tests a day with daily mortality rates at 1% or lower.......so dope what will that do to the overall average?
The average is irrelevant to the 275k deaths you deny.
How many lives are required to satisfy your freedom? How many families must sacrifice members because dopes like you can’t bother to wear a mask for 15 or 30 minutes?
That is stupid. If you take total deaths of every disease for the year and see how many people die every day from something, then you can see how ridiculous the focus on one silly virus has been. And these numbers would be even less impactful if not for the ignorant mishandling by 6 Democrat states contributing almost half the total. The overall death rate for this virus is now 1.9%....soon it will be 1.5% then sub 1% and eventually once everyone is done getting tested now that they can, the flu. You libbers are sooo dramatic and no mention of the millions already impacted worse by the loss of their jobs because of this silly hoax.

Yes. Since May, dope. You really are absolutely clueless.

If you think this pandemic is nonsense, then feel free to visit some Covid patients at your local hospital.

Also, feel free not to wear any protective gear when you do.
Of the 102 infected coworkers I knew, I couldn't visit any of them in the hospital because they were home getting over the leftyflu in a week or 10 days. You go visit your imaginary friends in the hospital.
So you're saying that you're scared to go to the Hospital.
Why would I go to the hospital with no symptoms?
To verify that there are no critical patients as you seem to believe.

Or to verify that you're an idiot.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
There are .46% critical patients, I believe I have said that many times Forrest....and what I believe is factual what you babble is parroted garbage.
So...by your logic, the mortality rate is 1.9% but critical patients are only .46%? So those dying aren’t critical cases?
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.
The critical case percentage was once over 10% and the mortality rate 8%...they both are falling just at a different pace. I don't make up numbers like you do I get mine straight from Worldmeters.
You just lack the ability to interpret them competently.
Simple math of actual numbers nothing to "interpret". See thats the problem, you libbers let the propaganda machine media do the interpreting for you.

Yes, competently. By experts in their field. Not internet morons who are failed human beings that are unable to navigate modern life competently.
You dopes are so twisted that there are actually folks like you who are literally on their deathbed with COVID who still refuse to believe it’s real.
You’re like the Germans who couldn’t believe what they saw when the death camps were liberated. “ We didn’t know”.
You call me a dope yet you are the one hiding in your basement with a mask because some "expert" told you to. Sure some people die from this many more die from other more dangerous diseases, a simple fact. You can't hide from this virus or any of the others and trying to is just moronic.

I don’t hide, dope. I simply wear a mask and respect people’s space. It’s simple for those who are mature. Being a whiney twat over a mask is simply retarded.
Oh really? I have been doing that for about 20 years myself especially during flu season, along with anyone I know who has common sense. But since we also know wearing a mask makes you sicker if you are sick, we don't wear the silly things. So before Covid you used to run all up on people and cough and sneeze in their face?

Oh really? Hmmm better do some research on that Forrest.
