All the big box store giants are enforcing masking and hand sanitizing when entering their stores in spite of your right to refuse it. Amazon, one of Big Tech five would hope that the COVID lockdowns and re-lockdowns never end as they presently are, for Amazon has reaped great rewards during Covid. Like all the Big Tech five have gained immensely while the rest of the world has suffered become impoverished. Bill Gates and his foundation for instance, the BMGF (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) promised to give away its fortune to philanthropy. In March 2020 Bill Gates stepped down from the Microsoft Board -- but he did create a new area for himself within the company where he oversees all decisions made by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. He sold all his stock and owns 1% of prime share. And invested that money in mix stock and other assets. To date Bill Gates has donated $35 billion worth of Microsoft stock to the Gates foundation.
...China has been amassing incredible manufacturing power at the cost by the west in a disintegrating manufacturing infrastructure, that was the largest in the world at one time...and now along with all this dollar store junk and excess of dumping their plastic waste re-manufactured into widgets, and gadgets; their back doors into communication tech like cellphones and the purchasing of any intellectual, property or property maker, because they stifle the creative within China.
A slow creep of the socialist model has been going on now some one hundred and twenty years, since its inception with the Socialist Party of America. By Lenin interpreting Karl Marx and Engels manifesto as the first stone laid of the Communist party. It is said that Socialism wishes to control production whereas communism aims to control production and the consumption. Socialism is the groundwork laid for the follow by communism, and it is moving through the polarity in North America like a wild fire, through the call for revolution; the destruction of the university and the emasculation and corruption of the intelligentsia. The corruption of western leaders doing business with China. The innovators and inventors selling out to the great wealth no holds barred of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).
I took some time off, I was too focused and I was getting a new madness from the new normal. I went to Edmonton to find the city is neck deep in batshit crazy. The need to keep the peace with my daughters and wife, and the requirements of a mandatory masked society, was a high wire act to say the least. I think it is the pretense that is the most annoying -- I did experience some wearers of the device who actually have a good sense of humor. But wear it anyway. A black masked woman came up to me in a Save-On-Foods and looked at my mask down around my neck -- they didn't say 'how' to wear it? Just wear it. And besides its a $130 ticket I hear, and going back to Edmonton to challenge an unjust bylaw and the court appearance would prove a waste of my rather illustrious talents. You have to pick your battles. Anyway this nice lady looked at me and smiled from under her mask -- I could tell by here eyes, and she said, "You're a rather tall and handsome fellow, can you get something off the top shelf for me?"
