The last thing they want is for you to be moving around.
Just stay in your little apartment, goy. Smoke weed and masturbate.
In Boston, transit officials warned of ending weekend service on the commuter rail and shutting down the city’s ferries. In Washington, weekend and late-night metro service would be eliminated and 19 of the system’s 91 stations would close. In Atlanta, 70 of the city’s 110 bus routes have already been suspended, a move that could become permanent.
And in New York City, home to the largest mass transportation system in North America, transit officials have unveiled a plan that could slash subway service by 40 percent and cut commuter rail service in half.
(You know, there was a time when the NYT would never think of starting a paragraph with “and.” I know that I hesitate to do that, but I’m not trying to be an upstanding “paper of record.” It’s a bit disgusting, as a journalist, to see that “and”).
Across the United States, public transportation systems are confronting an extraordinary financial crisis set off by the pandemic, which has starved transit agencies of huge amounts of revenue and threatens to cripple service for years.
The profound cuts agencies are contemplating could hobble the recoveries of major cities from New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco, where reliable transit is a lifeblood of the local economies.
Trains and buses carry the office workers, shoppers and tourists who will help revive stores, restaurants, cultural attractions, hotels and other key businesses that have been battered by the outbreak.
A glimmer of hope emerged in recent days, when a bipartisan group of lawmakers in Congress proposed $15 billion for public transit agencies as part of a $908 billion framework for a pandemic-relief package.
The plan, which President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. has said he supports, would provide nearly half of the $32 billion that transit leaders have lobbied for in recent months and that is intended to provide short-term relief.
(I’m obligated to correct the Times, as I do every day, with regards to the false claim that anything was “set off by the pandemic” or “battered by the outbreak.” All of the problems were are talking about are a result of government policy, not a disease).
What a coincidence that money is being poured into banks, Jeff Bezos is sucking it up like a sponge, the military has no shortage of cash to throw at Islamic terrorists or Chinese dissidents.
But a key organ of the economy in major cities is unfunded, which is going to trigger further economic disenfranchisement of working people.
Of course, the transit system would have to downsize in every city, because there is no way that the same numbers of people would ever be riding again, given what the government has done to the economy. Oh shit. The MTA and its billion dollar profits every year.
Instead, what’s going to happen is that the federal government is going to pour billions into it, so that no one gets fired, then the money will run out and the whole thing will collapse, and people will be told to just stay home. This is of course as people will be forced to sell their cars.
Beyond that, there are going to be roadblocks and everything else. Basically, you’re going to have a small area, a neighborhood, where you’re allowed to go to the grocery store, and that’s about it.
I just want to remind you that this is all planned. This isn’t some kind of monumental mismanagement. It’s a purposeful gutting of the working and middle classes. All normal people are being driven into poverty.
It becomes very tiresome to to watch it all unfolding, with all of these people talking about this and that plan to fix that or this, as we watch them engage in actions clearly designed to destroy things more and more.
This was a project to destroy all small businesses and take your rights away. The rest of it is effectively theater.
I can’t imagine what it is like to believe that this is all real, but it can’t be as frustrating as what I’m going through here, laying this all out before it happens like some kind of prophet. There is nothing exhilarating about any of this. I take no joy in it.
By the way, I’m not a prophet – I’m not getting visions here. I can just see it all clearly. I’m starting to think that Biblical prophets weren’t so much getting visions so much as they were just tapped in and could analyze situations.
It is kind of amazing what I’ve done, apparently. I said there would be a second lockdown, and readers were all flipping out, saying I was going to look silly. People were sending me emails saying “bro I don’t know what you’re doing, if you think you’re some kind of prophet, but you’re going to look stupid predicting all this stuff when it doesn’t happen, you should stop saying they’re going to do a second lockdown to completely collapse the economy.”
I never had a vision. It was just obvious – to me, apparently not to anyone else – that if they were able to push this through in the first place, saying that the normal flu is a plague, they would continue it indefinitely. It was also clear that they already knew how people would respond, because of these simulations they run.
At this point, if you don’t get it, you should probably just trust me.
A lot of you seem to be thinking “they can’t do that” – but they already did it.
None of us grew up in a tyrannical dystopia. So, it is difficult to imagine what it is going to be like. You’re sitting here thinking “surely, they’re not going to trap me in my neighborhood with road blocks and tell me it is because of the flu? They wouldn’t be able to get away with such a thing!” You know what? Playing lots of video games in the 90s and into the 2000s would have helped. The Japanese knew! They were speaking to us gamers all along.
Why wouldn’t they be able to get away with it? What are you going to do? What is anyone going to do? They have almost fully locked down all communication channels. With total control of information, you won’t even know what they’re doing. They could lockdown your neighborhood, slaughter everyone a block over using a chemical weapon, and you wouldn’t know about it. That is what they are doing – they are locking everything down, making every single segment of society individually manageable by algorithms.
They took your rights from you, and now when they move forward, they can just do whatever they want, and the explanation doesn’t have to make any sense, because you already gave up your ability to resist it. Basically, when you allowed them to lockdown our countries, the entire Western world signed a waiver surrendering all rights.
You should move out of the city.
It’s just going to keep getting worse and worse.
We’re going to push for secession, but you know – who the hell knows?
I’m not a prophet.
I’m just tapped in.
