Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

My thought is that people are stocking up for the possibility of election violence. I have not heard of transport disruptions (other than the hurricanes in my AO) in a couple of months. https://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=124437&p=2745909#p2745909 Yes I saw that in the chat thr...

Or in other words, Just Because You're Paranoid Doesn't Mean They're Not Out To Get You.

Keep your head on a swivel, avoid distraction.
Yes indeed ... that ...and do think about the likely risks you face and plan accordingly to mitigate the risk.

Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

I don't put credence in any cell phone video coverage I see. The camera has always started rolling *after* the cause of confrontation and we're always missing that crucial datapoint that explains *why* someone is getting shot or getting the beat-down. It's good to be skeptical of video for sure. Wh...

More like diffusion of accountability.

It's a shitty situation, but that's the grand jury's conclusion. From a prep...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

I don't trust the official mortality numbers. There have been too many cases of someone who dies and just happens to have COVID, so COVID is declared the cause of death.
