The solution: get off fucking Twitter

 

I don't disagree, but I also don't know how we reach regular folks without these mainstream platforms. I guess we just need more in real life activism away from the internet.

I work in 8 to 10 houses a day....all walks of life. I spread the word to who ever I feel will listen. I even try to touch on it with those that don't sometimes. It is draining and zaps all your energy though. Yesterday 2 people opened their own front door to me wearing masks. They continued to wear it whilst I worked in their home without one. One of the ladies was 20 years younger than me as well. Saturated in fear!!!

 

I have been doing this sharing of info for many years now but since this I have really up the tempo. Sometimes you can almost feel the fear go away infront of your own eyes. I have even had some take the mask off infront of me and sit down and talk within 1/2 hour as if they has not even opened the door wearing one? It can be amazing but very draining alongside your normal work.

The last guy who's house I worked in yesterday was a devoted Muslim who really got it all. I explained that I had worked in a pensioners house earlier (also a Muslim lady) who had opened the door wearing a mask. She never took the mask off fully but before leaving she had agreed on everything from vaccines, cashless society, hospital care and depopulation agendas. He pointed out to me that it's great what I'm doing but some of these people will bleed you dry of energy.....He was 100% right there.

 

I do what I can and some days it's lot's and others not so much. That's all we can do whilst preserving our own mental and physical health alongside it all.

Dr Vernon Coleman has been suggesting leaflet campaigns  for some, and I agree. As well as containing useful info links showing that there are other websites & internet platforms is something Im sure that many who spend all day on facebook and twitter are not aware of. Im pretty sure there will be a great many (who have the time) would welcome the relief of an alternative to the doom gloom of bbc & msm.

No likes, but I totally understand how you feel. You have to look after your own mental health too, nothing wrong with that.

 

I guess I'm pretty out of touch with what you folks have to go through in a public work setting because I work remotely. I appreciate your efforts though.

She's obviously another one of the compromised 'celebs', probably videos of her riding a horse somewhere. Pure scumbag.

Definitely makes sense.

 

On that note, if anyone needs a print/graphic designer, feel free to give me a shout and I can help. I know information is the main thing, but if something looks more official it definitely helps. Even little things like typography and colour schemes can be a big factor when it comes to the readers engagement and attention span.

Me too, I could help on that level, know about colour, design and typography, give them a bit of their own medicine in terms of symbology. About time we fought back. And Id like to do something for Dr Vernon, he's done a lot for me.

Yeah I think so. I mean, it's tempting to try and spread the message everywhere online but the reality is people don't want to hear it a lot of the time, especially on platforms like Twitter. They're just looking for a fight.

 

And while I don't have any sympathy for people jumping down your throat just for stating the obvious reality you also have a whole other, probably larger group of people who are just depressed by the whole situation and are trying to avoid everything Covid to preserve their own sanity.

 

It makes sense to be honest, it's not healthy to pore over it too much or worry excessively about the future, I have some trouble with it becuase I've just always been someone who finds it hard to switch off or tune out even when it's probably better for my own mental health if I do. I've deliberately never joined Twitter because I know I'd only be driving myself mad if I did.

 

Vernon Coleman probably has it right. Go to the protests, distribute leaflets, talk to anyone willing to listen but beyond that it's not good for us or our mental or physical health if we're on the Internet debating all day

just like the uni students.

an endless supply of false positives

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-55265098

 

Mass testing for secondary schools in parts of London, Kent and Essex

 

I think we need to inform parents about the truth of PCR test.

1) The test is not designed to find out if one has covid or not. Hence it's bogus.

2) I don't know if they will do a spit test or use that long cotton bud which penetrates the blood brain barrier.

 

Easiest thing to do is to hand out a piece of paper with a zoom meeting invitation while parents are waiting to pick up their kids. Who is doing this already?

If it reaches here then my kids will be removed from school

 

not having them tested

The way things are moving, really kids don't need to be in school unless they want to be a doctor, lawyer of that elk. Even then, A.I. is going to take their job as well in the future so steer them towards what they like to do. Many of us would agree that schooling was a waste of time. I know a few young ones making ton of money.
