Exploding the Myth That Face Masks Must Be Worn on Bus Lines, Train Lines, or Other Public Transport
Kayak is one of many search tools that help one find a flight, right next to the more hackerish Skiplag, the options-filled ITA Matrix , and many others. There is a host of long distance travel options that aren’t covered by such searches.
How To Find Awesome “Underground” Bus Lines
A similar concept without TSA trying to inspect your body and possessions, Wanderu is a great search engine for surface transport between two cities.
There are bus lines that you would previously only have access to 1.) Through being part of an isolated community, 2.) By word of mouth, 3.) By coming across a schedule passed out on a flyer, or 4.) Posted up on a sticker somewhere like the side of a building or a streetlight pole.
Wanderu taps into some of the college-town-to-suburban-mall-parking-lot bus lines, the Miami-to-Guadalajara-type bus lines that line the American south, or the extensive network of “Chinatown express” lines that, in abundant quantity, once formed a vast network across the northeast before they were targeted for termination by nanny state “do-gooders.” Such do-gooders remind us why such bus lines are underground to begin with.
This is especially true of immigrant owned and operated lines. Owners and operators of lines like those fled to the United States precisely for the purpose of avoiding the insistent “help” of people who know not how irrelevant the help that they dedicate their life to providing is, and who also seem not to know how rapey are their repeated attempts to persist long after the word “No!” has been spoken.
That is the political left, the public health profession, the technocrats, the corona communists of 2020-2021, and all other nanny state do-gooders. There’s a special spot for them in the old country. The only difference is that the do-gooders wouldn’t last ten minutes there, some would contend that makes it all the more perfect for them.
But I digress. I am not here to harp on the hyenas. I am here to fawn over the lions, because when lions arise, and step into their God-given freedom, their right that some contemptuously call “privilege,” and which lions gleefully bask in the glow of, those lions just by being themselves make the space around then a little less hospitable for a hyena. And the hyenas know that. How little a hyena ultimately matters when a lion is in the room. Twain estimated a lion could handle 10,000 hyenas, not with fists, not with quarrels, but merely with the certainty of his voice.
A Note On Harassing An Immigrant Bus Company Owner Who Just Wants His Private Property Rights To Be Honored And Just Wants To Be Left Alone
The face masks are utter stupidity. They don’t work. They are dangerous. The only reason they are being worn everywhere is because of the threat of government.
If your bus company owner has protected his slice of paradise from that stupidity, great. Leave the guy alone. They have a-wink-and-a-nod operation and will leave you alone. If your bus company has onboarded the policies of the state and has made himself into an agent of the state by enforcing the asinine mask policy, then he is fair game.
I don’t think too many of the former exist. An awful lot of the latter exist.
Though, bus drivers are different. For a stealthily gifted $20 gratuity, and a quick, quiet, private, friendly explanation about how much you are looking forward to an unmasked journey since you aren’t able to wear one safely, and how you don’t want to cause him any trouble, there is hardly a private bus driver on the planet who will not happily leave you alone about the mask.
The Miserable Task Of Trying To Communicate Over The Phone With A Bus Line
Sometimes small bus lines have challenging customer service to deal with. They may have no phone number to call, which can be infuriating, or even more difficult for some individuals: they may have Spanish-speaking or Chinese-speaking staff that have a very difficult time communicating in English.
There is a designation used in language learning referred to as “native speaker” to refer to a high level of ability based on one’s speaking of a language from birth. Two non-native speakers may have a hard time communicating in the common language.
However, language may also be a barrier when English is a common native language. Two native speakers may also have a difficult time communicating from birth. Though we speak the same language, I can tell you I have no clue what comes out of the mouths of a-third of Scottish people, a third of Nigerians, and about half of Jamaicans.
Sometimes the native English speaker working customer service at bus lines can also be qu
