Back when I was a kid, my dad was a painting contractor. There were different masks for different materials; and also, how the materials would be applied, and whether in an enclosed space or more open.
Think about those elements without thinking of politicized mandates. What sort of things come to mind?
Perhaps if you’re brushing or rolling on latex, a water-based paint, a mask isn’t necessary. If you’re spraying any sort of paint, a typical painter’s mask might be called for. If you’re spraying in an enclosed room, definitely a painter’s mask for latex, something more serious for an oil-based paint. But if you’re spraying lacquer—which we did often for custom cabinetry—you really need a respirator. Etc.
The US Department of Labor has a division called OSHA—Occupational Health and Safety Administration. They were renowned to be tough, even back in the day. All sorts of things come into play from machinery to ladders, to various safety apparatus such as harnesses…and masks. Industry is a big killer and maimer of its chief employees: men. If you want to know a lot about various masks for various applications, you can actually read up on it at the OSHA Website, though I would not be surprised if it has been heavily edited and qualified over the last year or so in keeping with political imperatives.
Here’s how OSHA says “just wear the damn mask.”
What is personal protective equipment?
Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as “PPE”, is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits.
What can be done to ensure proper use of personal protective equipment?
All personal protective equipment should be safely designed and constructed, and should be maintained in a clean and reliable fashion. It should fit comfortably, encouraging worker use. If the personal protective equipment does not fit properly, it can make the difference between being safely covered or dangerously exposed. When engineering, work practice, and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide personal protective equipment to their workers and ensure its proper use. Employers are also required to train each worker required to use personal protective equipment to know:
- When it is necessary
- What kind is necessary
- How to properly put it on, adjust, wear and take it off
- The limitations of the equipment
- Proper care, maintenance, useful life, and disposal of the equipment
If PPE is to be used, a PPE program should be implemented. This program should address the hazards present; the selection, maintenance, and use of PPE; the training of employees; and monitoring of the program to ensure its ongoing effectiveness.
So as they say: just wear the damn mask as you’re told.
Now, how many people do you know for whom that doesn’t even faze whatsoever? Anyone have a mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, friend, co-worker, or social-media contact for whom it Just. Does. Not. Matter? Orders are orders, experts have spoken, there is CNN and MSNBC, we’re all in this together, you’ll kill my grandmother, you’re selfish, and on and on it goes—evading the point that it’s a useless means of protecting against viral infection, but top-notch in signalling virtue while at the same time, offering opportunities to shame, humiliate, and embarrass others—which elevates the most worthless and undesirable organisms that ever slithered out from under vermin to an unearned social and per-group status.
It doesn’t end there.
It keeps going.
I outlined some of the stuff I was working on in a recent post and newsletter: I Got Stuck in a Rut and the title of this post reflects my efforts to get out of it. But it’s tough, because I’m so outraged so often and paid subscribers haven’t told me that’s all they pay for. Yesterday, it got so bad I shut everything off and streamed. I picked the film Deep Impact which I hadn’t seen in many years, but any film with Morgan Freeman and Robert Duvall is bound to be worth a re-watch and when it has both of them, a must. I had forgotten that former Navy pilot and astronaut Spurgeon “Fish” Tanner and his crew save most of the world in the end…
…How disappointing. But sorry for the spoiler.
So you know what I did?
I queued up another film, a long one, like 2:40. 2012.
And therein did I achieve complete catharsis, since I’ve been half-joking lately that nothing short of a #Noah event is needed, at this point. And this film comes complete with a few Arks, and everything else is cleansed.
…Of course, earth is not totally cleansed from moron and evil, but it sure does put a good dent in it when 99.99999% of the entire infestation is gloriously obliterated and in almost all cases includes your mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, friends, co-workers, and social-media contacts.
Are you detecting a theme, here?
You should be, because as evil as these photographed fuckers are, they pale in comparison to what all of you have in your midst: your enemies, who are at the root cause of it all. No, I won’t explain. You should know what I mean, or this blog is most definitely not for you.
I know it’s a hard pill to swallow but it’s also just so. None of this is possible without it being allowed to be possible and that is from the noisy cheerleading and clamoring close to you, nearly all of you and you know who I mean. But what reason do they have to change their ways if you smile and welcome them, rather than ostracize them?
…It’s funny, because the the left is already on this, as the real warriors they are, fighting for their ideas, asking questions like “isn’t it time to ostracize?”
YES!!! IT. IS. TIME!!!
I clamor for the ostracism of parasites, but I fear they won’t mean it, once bills come due. Do you get that and what are the implications?
If parasites—and it’s the rare Democrat who is not, at heart—want to ostracize you, they are making an error and you’re stupid if you don’t accept. And you are far more moronic and hopeless it you don’t hold them to it without mercy or quarter.
…But how about you, conservatives? How long are you going to signal your virtue in relaying how many slithering organisms out from under vermin you have, and it’s a “nice relationship?” You’re a cucked chump. And I’m not talking about the cashier or shelves-stockers at the 24 who you exchange pleasantries with. You know who I mean. People who incomprehensibly really matter, those to whom you give a pass where you shouldn’t.
…After finishing 2012, I went back to a Netflix series I’ve been watching, Billions. Well, that brings you back to reality quick. It’s a good treatment in terms of how meaningless distinctions are made between “good” and “evil.”
We have long lived in a world where good and evil play almost no real and objective part, anymore. Both are merely dressed up in plausible narrative and we pick our favorite. Then, we obsess about sports and other entertainment designed to ‘archetype’ the narratives that you’re supposed to pick sides over, like a tribe.
Wherefore art thou, Noah, with your Ark?
Ok So What’s Next?
You’re not God, you don’t know God, there probably isn’t a God in the sense it’s commonly thought of: indoctrinated from childhood, and weaved into the thread of social and cultural fabric.
All of that woven fabric serves to differentiate one thread, one color, and various patterns from all the others that make up the whole. Such contrasts are fine and valuable inasmuch as we can appreciate the differences; but as importantly: delight in our favorites. That isn’t the world in which we live. The whole comforter is not comforting, each distinct part and element at war with each other part and element.
If you were God, even for a day, you have a pretty good idea of what would happen, so ALL of your protestations of “his plan,” “he’s in control,” “Jesus take the wheel,” ad nauseum, is just dishonest, lazy-ass-covering bullshit because you don’t want to look like a fucktard so you just take on the same intransigence as the left does. You’re as worthless, just as evil. God is not in control, because there isn’t one—in the manner in which you were taught, and you fucking well know it but won’t admit it.
That’s why nearly the entire world is best described as deer in headlights, now. Their fundamental problem is not in reconciling what’s been going on with the fact of their personal God, it’s in realizing what they cannot speak or even admit to themselves: that they have been chumped and fooled for the entirety their lives.
And that’s on you, if you subscribe to such lazy, do-the-literal-least-you-can-do—pray—fantasy.
Have you ever looked at a typical comment thread on social media invoking prayers?
Oh Noah wherefore art thou?
The reason leftists kick ass over and over every single time since the 19th Amendment, 100 years ago, is that they dispensed with that lazy prayer-shit long ago and their activism is coordinated and tightly integrated around socialized, altruistic virtue-signalling while guilting, shaming, and embarrassing everyone who’s not part of the cool kids. It is what it is, God doesn’t give a fuck.
The religious right, conservatives, and Republicans have been taking knives to gunfights for decades expecting a merit badge for honestly telling the truth as they apprehend it, and they are always chumped: there are never any exceptions. To those wankers, a 2nd Amendment Court decision in their favor is like God come down from the heavens to personally preside over a communion ceremony.
The 2nd Amendment is The Wankers Amendment.
When one guy came along to Trump that, they eventually got him too, and the Republicans deserved to lose, because they are the everlasting Stupid Party—just watch the Newsmax archive from about November 6, 2020 to January 6, 2021. Don’t forget all the paid ads—those speak volumes in terms of the worthless lazy-asses you’re dealing with amongst Republicans, conservatives, and religious right…
But that “Trump card” chumping embarrassment wasn’t before they literally shut down your churches—your supposed base and fundamental core and foundation for what the 2nd Amendment is for—and not a shot was fired. I don’t go to church, not my gig; but I certainly support the right of those who wish to do so, and I fervently believe anyone blocking the door to that assembly ought to be subject to the most righteous killing right on the spot, no questions asked. From a cop to any head of state, and anyone in-between.
Clearly, that particular affirmation is not shared by many of those otherwise agitating to climax on their keyboards….
…Obviously, no religious right, God fearing, conservative Republican, 2nd Amendment advocates share my view—or they’re just simple disappointments…cowards; and thus, dismissable and disgusting—and I fervently believe that as much as they believe in their sky fairy. The word frauds comes to mind; because, they don’t really advocate for guns because of their ‘God & Country’ bullshit. They’re shooting range wankers and showoffs, and that’s the fucking extent of it. They defend the 2nd at their own gun-collection convenience, and that is all they do.
Say another prayer. It’s the least you can do.
…So you go talk about and invoke your fantasy God and Jesus and you get chumped like foolish suckers every damn time, and I can’t honestly say that’s a bad thing. Rather, I hang and shake my head that almost none wake up. And so, in the Noah apocalypse, in my version, the God fearing are right in there with the cleansed, just for different reasons.
So, with all that said, I will be back with you all on practical measures because here’s one thing you should take away from this: your government institutions and your churches are equally worthless, and so is your notion of God who watches over.
You are on your own, so isn’t it time to start really digging into how you can intelligently craft your life—not only to get around all this nonsense in and on our faces for the last year, but diminish such awful impacts going forward?
I’ll be in touch soon.
All my posts going forward except for the anchor index post forthcoming will be for paid members only, 100%.
