Today I went to buy a case of beer, well the reasons aren't important but nonetheless....on the door, I saw two signs. The first was the state mandated "mask required" sign. The second, well, tore me up

"Due to HIPPA and the 4th Amendment we are unable to ask you about your medical conditions. Therefore, if you enter without wearing a mask, we must assume it is due to a medical condition. Those who are unable to wear a mask are welcome inside. -Signed, Management"

This is what 21st century Bravery look like, folks.

Patriots and patriotic acts come in all shapes and sizes.

Whichever enemy wants to invade America, she's ripe for the taking and getting riper, as cowardice becomes "normal".

Hitler (Germany), or Tojo (Japan), would own our ass in a heartbeat today.

Compliance with a dash of passive aggressive note writing is patriotic?


No wonder skinny jean wearing, gender confused toddlers are destroying this nation.

I was berated by a store clerk for having a mask. The law here mandates the sign, but no one follows it. Whatever, I removed it and that was that. Smiles all around. A simple pleasure you miss with masks.

Yes. The store owner was giving patrons a choice. That's the very embodiment of liberty. Hence, it was patriotic.

Does my breath hurt you. I already want to distance myself without government mandates. The question was really simple.

No. The store owner was complying with what can be assumed a state mandate while at the same time expressing a clear disagreement.

You can come to your own conclusions as it suits.

I normally agree with you, but you understand this insanity, right?

I said back when this started that it was okay to smoke indoors again because the masks will protect them or they can explain how these giant smoke particles filled to the brim with cancer can get through the masks but those tiny virus cells cannot.

Indeed I do.

So I have a 5 year old. I need him to brush his teeth. Idgaf how much he bemoans, complains or throws a fit.. as long as he brushes his teeth. Which he does everyday.


See my point yet?

I guess not. Unreasonable demands need to be called out. Brushing you teeth is basic hygiene. Wearing a mask is not reasonable.

ETA: I hope your son is well.

Agreed. But writing notes and bitching aint solving anything nor would I believe it to be patriotic.

Good for them. We need more of this!

The below is a Farcebook post from a restaurant in my neck of the woods. Sorry it’s so long but I thought it was great with some humour tossed in!

We are on lockdown at the moment with no indoor dining.

To put his menu in perspective our Premier is called Jason Kenny.

*From Whistle stop post:

*edit** supper special starts at 5:30. Dine-in only (inside or patio) wait Times will be looonnngggg.

Good morning everyone! It's been a busy, stressful couple days for us here. I'm not going into details as they're irrelevant to our vision of serving delicious food, to beautiful people ❤️ today could be a very big day for us here at the Whistle Stop Cafe in Mirror, Alberta. We've got a lot on the go including planning this coming weekends festivities here. Live music, karaoke, and wonderful food prepared with care and attention to detail. All of us here believe strongly in taking every precaution with the way we handle food. As a food "service," provider our number one priority is ensuring that what we serve its fresh and safe. We also believe in your choice to either venture out in this dangerous world or stay home and limit your exposure to the thousands of risks we encounter every day. Nobody here will ever judge you for making your own choice. As most of you know, Alberta Health Services suspended our food handling permit yesterday, via EMAIL. Now I could have ignored the email and said I didn't recieved it and made them come out here and deliver themselves, but I didn't. AHS inspectors are not well received these days. And I'm happy to consider them as human beings and keep them out of situations where they may be subject to abusive language and threats. So I accepted the email as it was written and acknowledge the suspension of my permit. However, as a man and a human being I have the right to engage in commerce. I have the right to Life, Liberty and security. These rights are not conditional on any agency "permitting," them. We continue to follow best practices in regards to purchase, storage, and preparation of our food. And we continue to maintain a clean environment in which to serve or consume said food. We will not continue to be bullied into submitting to garbage, harmful, baseless restrictions forced on the people of Alberta by those who will never suffer the consequences of their own actions. We are OPEN for business. And we have some great specials today!

Breakfast- Eggs Kenney served with a side of disobedience. 2 eggs poached one way, then changed to whatever we feel like making up at the time. We will give you ham, sausage, and bacon with your eggs Kenney but then we're going to take back half of it and tell you is for your own good. Comes with hashbrowns on the side, but only if you submit to our stupid rule of clapping three times and saying the word, "knee," (as in the Knights who say, knee. Because it's ridiculous and changes nothing.) $5.00 plus a fee of $7.95 for the permit to eat.

Lunch special today is a UCP Monster Rueben. Our delicious, HUGE Reuben! But like our government it will be served open and two-faced with an egg on its face. Comes with delicious freedom fries! $11.95

Soup today is Hinshaw chicken noodle. Chicken soup is good for you! And since Dr. Hinshaw seems to think she's the only person who knows what's good for us I figured it was an appropriate name.

Supper special is whatever you want. We will prepare you anything you like! Because what you put in your body, and where you choose to eat and do business is YOUR CHOICE!!! Keep in mind our kitchen is small so please don't go crazy🤣 our supper special is FREE! And if you feel like donating to our cause we would be very happy to accept it. I heard something about "plague rats," so all donations will go towards cleaning supplies and a consultation with an exterminator because we want ALBERTA TO REMAIN RAT FREE!!!

We're looking forward to seeing you today!! We NEED YOU HERE. We need your support! We need to push back as hard as we can, knowing that we may get sick but doing OF OUR OWN ACCORD!!

Sending love and freedom from the Whistle Stop Cafe in Mirror ❤️“

-Chris
