Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the CDC finally telling vaccinated people they can stop with all the restrictions – a decision millions of Americans had already made. They also hammer President Biden for tweeting out people have to get vaccinated or stay masked and react to the “trust the science” crowd suddenly very mad at the scientists. And they discuss the implications of cyberterrorists attacking the Colonial Pipeline and Colonial agreeing to pay the $5 million ransom to restart operations.

    WTF Jim?  “Al Queda never pulled off anything like” the pipeline hack?  Sure, all they did was bring down some very large, very important buildings, and kill thousands of people in them!

    Logged in here in a long time to say exactly this (except I think “geld” here is technically money, not necessarily gold).

    Surgeons in the operating room do not wear masks to prevent the spread of viruses. They wear masks  to reduce bacteria transmission.

    Studies from both MIT and Berkeley show wearing masks do (a) nothing to slow the spread of Covid and (b) have adverse results on the health of those wearing masks. (For the first time ever when I had my annual physical my blood CO2 was abnormally high. That was an artifact of the doctor’s office forcing me to wear a mask for 90 minutes before drawing blood.)

    Additionally Covid does not spread by surface transmission – only through transmission of airborne particles too small to be stopped by anything other than a properly-worn N-95 mask. If you believe wearing masks seriously reduce the chance of contracting Coivid-19 there is a word that describe you: superstitious.

    I was really expecting you to use one of these:

    Why is “nice” missing from that list?

    Done with this at the lame explanation for wearing masks. Science backs none of your statements.

    In all fairness Greg, I think you have a better grasp of a sunset, than Biden does at this point.

    Oh, good talk on the Ricochet podcast today… Well done.

    The viruses are too small to be stopped by most masks.

    However, the liquid droplets the viruses travel on — and apparently need, to remain infective — are much larger.

    I wish I could say masks were completely useless, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
