A fun post for us oldies. From Facebook, brings back memories.
1/Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment.
2/ The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."
The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."
3/ The older lady said that she was right, our generation didn't have the "green thing" in its day. The older lady went on to explain: Back then,we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store.The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized

The first causality in war -is the truth. The truth ceased to exist on March 17, 2020 with the @fordnation declaration of a state of emergency in Ontario #onpoli #cdnpoli
In every war, deception & ruse are most effective in disguising what is really happening. Covid & corona viruses although real were disguised as something far more virulent, far more dangerous than the reality. A great panic & fear was induced by deception into the western world
The fog of war can be generated by gunpowder, artillery & bombs. It can also be generated by misinformation, propaganda, chaos & confusion. However it always prevents one from seeing a true picture of the battlefield & can be used to ones advantage.

1/ How do you know that the pro-lockdown+face mask crowd are losing the war & getting increasingly desperate? They’re now using identity politics instead of #science in their arguments. Let me explain how public health/infectious disease docs, not lockdown skeptics, are fascists
2/ Let’s start w/ the parasite hypothesis, which explains why “authoritarian governments are more likely to emerge in regions characterized by a high prevalence of disease-causing pathogens”. Studies also show parasite prevalence predicts measures of authoritarian governance
3/ Hitler, leader of the nazis, was a germaphobe & “obsessed w/ the idea of infection”. He avoided personal contact & is said to have bathed 4 times/day. He also referred to Jews as parasites that infected nations. These traits are linked to authoritarian ideologies, not skeptics
