STILL STONES OF SILENCE

Indeed, we have given up. Freemen, once, .now happy slaves? No longer able to drink from a Church cup. We are the most willing knaves. Tragically, to those who unlawfully locked us up. Stockholm Syndrome has us by strongly, by the throat. We are grateful to our masters for our lifelong sentence. Never realizing we must be the butt of jokes. Contended, as our end draws near. Taken prisoner by a phenomenal, life-demeaning, worldwide power-!hoax!     September 10, 2020           11pm PST

Such a harsh reality. Being a medical patient when I do visit the medical center...which is rare now...I must wear a mask or not receive treatment. Ugliness. Chantelle hugs xx Mouse

I understand that. Hospitals and med centers carry the strongest germs. Including MD offices. I can only have med visits by phone. Cannot afford the virus. In Ca must wear mask in stores and nearly everywhere. I no longer go to stores. Be well Chantelle. Pangie xx

Government needs only two weapons: the power to license and tax. That is how they got people to wear masks. Stores put signs on windows that, in order to enter one had to wear a mask -- fearing the loss of their business license. All good laws or policies are as good as the people wielding them -- by themselves, they are worthless.

Good-Day Prince De Mino! I love to make up nics for folks. Hope you do not mind. Masks for all of course and a money and power grabber. In insane CA you can only eat outdoors? What is this......Rikers Island? Laws are ridiculous....go to LA, nutcase city. No trick or treating, no parties for kids on Halloween. Kids don't pass the virus. But..join the Insane Train, Canada suggested couples wear masks during sex??....'Bout fell on the floor. Will their be boudoir police? Or cameras in bedrooms? Maybe our cats and dogs need masks? I see no point in going out at all. Anything to suffocate freedom. And dorks follow any law! Thanks, Panagiota xx

Nobody gives a whit, Tom. The world is happily being choked to death. Faith? Freedom? Who cares? It's a totally oppressed world and you can tell, can't you? I can!! Freedom of expression is dead, unless we tickle someone's tummy. Ah, then, we are liked. BTW, I have been on the planet too long. I want off! See Word Hobo's comment. It's a sad day in the USA,9/11! I don't think Americans care anymore. Pasted to their egos and technology. Emoji-Land ...thank you... Panagiota xx

Panagiota. Lenin said "the 1917 revolution could not have happened without a "stage manager" capable of engendering a world-wide crisis of unparalleled intensity - economic, political, national and international.." & to turn social and political life into one BLOODY CLOT". To think that this pandemic and anarchist movement is not a top-down stage managed crisis by the Plutocracy is to be historically & politically naive. The WEF call this pandemic the ""Great Reset" to Reimagine the world. That said, regarding this virus, it would be foolish not to take reasonable precautions. Heart inflammation is a serious side effect even for healthy young athletes.

None among us have not contributed to the place where we are now. I am guilty as well. Human nature when imbued with power and riches concoct a toxic rationale that all actions, no matter how perversely inhumane, are permissible in pursuit of "noble causes" Many follow the Icons with noble causes, blind to their dehumanizing means. We are called to follow the One whose power was perfected in humility. Evil cannot be defeated by power. Those who try become tyrants. Examples abound within our own government institutions. Take care...

Right on, brother! There is a puppet master pulling the strings of the entire planet. He has a name. Plenty of followers...Like 3/4 of the planet is under his thumb and clueless as hens. I call the pandemic a Trojan Horse...within in lies the seeds to our destruction.so glad you are back, wish your Soupmail was on. Panagiota xx. Anarchists are everywhere..like roaches. Thank you..
