Predictably, the mini-hitlers on Twitter and in the leftist media are claiming that it had to have been a Trump supporter who loaded Alec Baldwin's "prop gun" with real bullets, causing him to murder one person and injure another on a movie set.

Right. As if anyone even remotely non-communist could get a job in Hollywood.
I wish it had been Rob Reiner that got killed.

Neutron bombs would work. Destroy every living thing in the state and

let it go back to orange groves.



I would feel bad for the non-human animals there. It is not their fault they were born in California.

No pity for humans though. Those didn't chose were to be born, but they could have moved away if they wanted.

I know its YouTube, but just telling you "idiots glue themselves to the road" just isn't enough.  Cops should just leave them there and open the roads then this nonsense would stop overnight.  "Sorry folks, you made your choice, good luck"

No, I have not verified this, only listened to her speak.

 

A well known art buyer was denied entry into the ‘private showing’ of Hunter’s “art”.  So she went across the street to another gallery, and of course was let in to look around. They had a signed Picasso, selling for less than Hunter’s chicken scratchings. 

 

Ya.

How can it be a private viewing? I thought it was supposed to be anonymous. Oh, that's right, because it's the /buyers/ who are anonymous, not the other way around...which is exactly the arrangement you'd want if you were a public figure trying to hide bribery. What a bunch of idiots we are to fall for this stuff.

I dont think most of us 'fall' for it. We know what is going on, we are just powerless to stop it.

Its always had single points of failure. It was flawed from the start and was never really meant for the 'real world' but instead a 'captive world', where everyone was supposed to behave.  Of course in the real world, that doesn't work.

The things that came later ( like distributed p2p, block chain, etc ) might have helped, but at this point the underlying flawed network topology is still there, so i donno.

For all of its flaws, it's still better than the networks that came before it. Consider this: with IP, the idea of moving all of the intelligence into the endpoints was revolutionary. Previous networks (think X.25 and SNA for example) required very specialized control nodes that could absolutely be used as choke points if they existed in the modern Internet.

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with Joshua Moon here. He touched upon the real issue briefly, but then moved on. The realy problem is that there are too few sites. A truly healthy Internet would have thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of sites exchanging discourse with each other. For all its flaws, UseNet was a far better model than Facebook. Currently we're in a situation where a Zerohedge or Gab or Parler sticks out like a sore thumb and can be targeted by the cancel mob. If there were thousands of them and they all talked to each other, the mob would not have the resources to take them all down.

That's the problem. Not the network itself. The network itself is healthy, and will someday become even more healthy when IPv6 removes the scarcity of globally reachable addresses. We can fix this.

Agreed, its just too bad they didnt think far enough ahead for when 'bad actors' could/would control entire sections of it. Of course im not tossing large stones, since really It started out as a in-house project, so that was not part of the requirement. Its just too bad it didnt truly evolve once it was 'released' from confinement.

I didnt verify this. It came from Ben Shapiro.. 

 

OSHA is looking to make the new "emergency temporary" mandate permanent AND

  • Remove the testing option. Antibodies, no longer an 'out'.  You get a shot shot or no job. Period.
  • New Mask requirements for all people with shots ( i guess you will have to buy 'government approved' masks )
  • New partitioning and ventilation requirements. Put everyone in a plastic box with their own AC

This will put millions out of work. Bankrupt all but the largest companies..   

I just dont get all this vaccination mandate stuff. It's almost like they want the people to get so fed up that they revolt.  To enact national martial law.... total take over of everything and if you step out of line. you get shot, no questions asked..

Some Republican talking about that stupid mega spend bill to a Democrat about a section that mandates child care workers now have college degrees. "why would you vote for such a thing, as that would cause a crisis in child care workers"

I'm not sure where to post this. It is instigated by a The Workplace event, but I have a feeling it's going to turn into a Rant, and most of the vaccine tin foil hattery is in Politics, Propaganda, Paranoia, so I'm going to put it there.

It's finally on my doorstep. This week my employer announced vaccine requirements to be able to enter the office. It doesn't impact me immediately because we're mostly all still working from home, but there will come a time when they will ask us to all return.

I've already notified my manager that I will not comply. He didn't respond. I know that he shares my politics, but he's also vaccinated, and he tends to be the "choose your battles" type, which in my experience means he will always say "this hill is not worth dying on" and bend over. There has to be a line somewhere. For as much shit as millennials get (and don't get me wrong, every one I know deserves it), I don't know a single boomer who I would trust to stand up with us. They are all nearing retirement, I get the feeling they're just riding it out for as long as they can stand it, and then they're going to cut and run.

Over the past week I have thought a lot about why I have this "dig in my heels" reaction, and I think I've come to a realization about what's been going on in me subconsciously.

I've used the line a few times, "I'm not in the demographic that is vulnerable to the disease, so I can wait and see what happens." The natural follow-up question to that is "wait for what?" I usually give some wishy-washy answer, "wait to see how effective it is," or "wait to see what adverse effects there are." The truth is that I'm no anti-vaxxer. Of course I've had other vaccines, and I still want to believe that the people who developed this one know what they're doing, mean well, and are treating it with the appropriate degree of caution.

What I realized is that this is what I was waiting for. I was waiting to see what would happen if, given the choice, I chose "wrong."

And I think that I could look back on my life and find that to be a running theme. At work and among family I think that I have a reputation for being stubborn and argumentative. The problem is that choice is a thin illusion. I've never really had the freedom to make the wrong choice. I've already revealed that I'm a millennial. Growing up as a millennial is an extremely institutionalized upbringing. I hated primary school, where teachers were always watching over your shoulder and judging everything you did. I hated being enrolled in sports I never had any interest in playing, and then being scolded by my parents for not trying. I hated university, which by the time I got there was just high school part 2. And now I hate working for a faceless corporation that installs spyware on every device in the building, having to ask for rubber stamps or permission to do my daily work even after 10 years of working there, and told what to do with my own resources by a government that I don't even like. Most people I know would tell me "but you are well off because of those things." Yes, I am very well off, but the problem is that I didn't consent to any of this. I was never even given the opportunity to consent to any of this. And now I'm told I have to take a vaccine to protect someone I've never met from a disease that is harmless to me, manufactured behind my back on the other side of the planet, funded with taxes I didn't want to pay in the first place.

And that's not even what's been keeping me up at night. What's been giving me the most anxiety is not that evil people seek power to do evil things. It's that when the subject of vaccine requirements comes up in a meeting, every question is clarifying what proof to upload, or how to upload it, and I appear to be the sole voice of opposition. I can handle having unpopular opinions, that's just my life in a nutshell. What I can't handle is the disregard for an unpopular opinion with respect to the sovereignty of my own physical self. If you can't convince me to decide for myself to drink the kool-aid, it is criminal to force it down my throat, no matter how enlightened you are or how wonderful the afterlife will be.

So much for a free country. If I don't have the freedom to decline prophylactic medical therapy, freedom is dead.

Can we get the damn war started already? I don't want a war. I really do not want a war. But the anticipation is killing me.

Not trying to minimize what you all said, but this is where a lot of us are right now.  Its always been a problem of 'rational people'. They actually think about the choices they make, while the 'radicals' just jump and if it goes bad they blame someone else.

Even for people that are currently vaccinated that get past the current planned rules, i suspect boosters will be mandatory to even leave your house soon.  Basically resetting the bar to zero.  Boosters are the hill that many of us will be willing to die on.  I met them 1/2 way, i wont go the other 1/2. I'm done. I happen to have had the virus in Jan of 2020, but i still do not support mandates. And i still would not have got vaccinated other than being forced.  It should be a choice, and you do what you want. ( in my case it was not work related but instead my mother's facility. "no vaccine, no visiting your family again". Shes old, i dont really have time to risk by fighting, so i got them. )

Its sick what the world has become, in such a short time. These people were just waiting for their chance to pounce. It was taking too long, so they manufactured it.  I now believe release was intentional, not accidental. Sure, the Chinese may have f-ed up, but the planners new this going in that it would happen, so yes, it was intentional. It was not deadly enough to take out the planet so the risk to them was actually low. But, it was just enough so they could spin it and seize control of everyone..

Yeah, I know that came out as a lot of me me me. I warned it would turn into a rant.

"no vaccine, no visiting your family again". Shes old, i dont really have time to risk by fighting, so i got them. )

Sorry to hear that you were strong-armed that way. It is disgusting. As you mentioned, because you were coerced, you can be vaccinated and still oppose mandates. What frustrates me is that most people don't have those ethics driving their decisions. Most people will say "I've been vaccinated, I have no reason not to comply," and they will happily turn in their papers. It's the same people who would defend the state spying on its citizens and say "If you haven't done anything wrong then you have nothing to hide." This mentality should not be in the majority, and given the supposed distrust of the government from both sides of the political spectrum, I don't understand how it is.

This is what is infuriating me. The complacency for tyranny because "it doesn't affect me." I'm not asking for people to take up arms, I'm just asking for a little push back. Don't make me be the only one who doesn't cooperate with HR. They'll let me go and never bat an eye. The problem is that we're too comfortable, I suppose. It's a different kind of enslavement. Instead of whipping our backs and demoralizing, they bribe us with a comfortable lifestyle and limited practical skills.

Its sick what the world has become, in such a short time. These people were just waiting for their chance to pounce. It was taking too long, so they manufactured it.  I now believe release was intentional, not accidental.

It was not deadly enough to take out the planet so the risk to them was actually low. But, it was just enough so they could spin it and seize control of everyone.. 

Did it became this sick in such a short time, or were we (at large) just asleep at the wheel? There are a lot of things wrong with our country that were set in motion before even my parents were born. I get the feeling that this has been cooking for a long time.
