    i personally find the news great. reading that other countries are tightening the rules,what one can do and what not, more and more. suppose it DID help to comply with the rules?not that i will be running now to go to a museum. or go to a theater. i am still awaiting my second vaccination. so, i walk my dog and wait and see what the future will bring. hopefully back to a -new normality- soon?

    Well, now that the American political establishment has regained its control, their paymasters don’t need the virus as much. Until the next time they need it. Then they’ll release -20 or whatever follows -19.

    In Russia, the situation with the coronavirus is stabilising, it is possible to gradually remove the restrictions introduced in connection with the pandemic. This was stated by President Vladimir Putin during an online meeting with students, broadcasted by RBC.

    “In general, the epidemiological situation in the country is gradually stabilising. This morning I listened to reports: we already have the number of recovered more than the number of sick.

    As old as you, yes. I first joined in 2006, then had to change my nik, in 2014, I joined again. I guess Judge would be one of the oldest and he joined just after I did.

    I was here about 2006, too, as "fantastika", for a year of so. Then I came back a few years ago. Throwing up a lot of stuff to get reactions, gather information and gell my own opinions with the aim of writing the definitive book about contemporary affairs, pissing off a lot of other posters. But things seem to be moving way too fast and accelerating, if case you haven't noticed.

    Where do you go surfing in Moscow? Ice surfing? They have a beach in Samara, but the waves max out at about 40 cm.

    We have a Democrat governor, and she keeps sending out Press Releases bragging about her glorious "Ad Astra" program with regards to Chinese virus shutdown. Makes no sense (Ad Astra?) to me either. "Let them eat stardust!"

    The basketball season is half over, and usually I go to the games 2-3 games a week. This year only parents are allowed, and this week is the big tournament, first time I ever missed it.

    I went to the Coronavirus testing center, and you had to spit 20-30 times to fill a glass tube. The medi-crats got enturbulated when I refused to give them my e-mail address. They seem to be unable to get results back to you.

    The Left/Media are using the old materialist maxims from Pavlov's dog. On the one hand they are rewarding "good" behavior - releasing the shutdown for "electing" Biden. On the other hand, they are keeping in hand the amorphous threat of a new virus variant to throttle down on the population - keep them in a State of Fear, to facilitate and augment their control over the proletariat and deplorables.

    Fox News pundit Steve Hilton pushed a ridiculous conspiracy theory that Dr. Fauci is behind the coronavirus https://a.msn.com/r/2/BB1d7Bkg?m=en-...rID=InAppShare


    This article shows they were working on a more contagious virus even though they say Dr. Fauci was not involved they leave out facts like Dr. Fauci was financing research and kept doing so even after he was supposed to stop.

    They lie or twist the truth by saying the virus was not "man made" but say that "gain of function" research was going on. So it's man made. They take the virus from bat's, make it so it can infect man then make it so it spreads faster, then they want us to believe that it wasn't they who released it but we got it from bat's.
    Then there's the little thing about Democrats supporting "peaceful protester" that did over a billion dollars in damage and left some 40 dead. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris raised money to bail out people who were arrested for violent crimes. Now that they are in power the want the National Guard deployed and crack down on protest.
    In the article they said it was "baseless" that Dr. Fauci lied about masks and herd immunity. Sorry but Dr. Fauci admitted he did. Yes the virus can kill people but it is most dangerous to weak and old people, that's why Governor Cuomo put sick people in nursing homes, it all started in America in a nursing home in Washington state! Why would Cuomo do that if he did not want people to die? 1/3 of the people who died from Covid in New York state died in nursing homes.

    Then there is the censorship, Facebook, Twitter and Google all censored information not in line with their own. Now they censore info on voter fraud. Censorship is a big red flag and the most dangerous thing to a free and transparent society. It's something Fascist do.

    Dr. Slouchi is the highest paid "civil servant" in the entire federal government. At $417,000/year, he pulls in more than the President.

    Not sure what one has to do these days to qualify as an “old-timer”. I asked whether one can freely express one’s philosophical views, was told that I could, and I’ve been here for going on 14 years now, I guess. I never dropped out, though the glory days of the great debates seem to be over.
