About 75 years ago, Herman Göring, testified at the Court in Nürnberg, was asked:
- How did you get the German people to accept all this?
- ′′ It was very simple, it has nothing to do with Nazism, it has something to do with Humans. You can do it in a Nazi, socialist, communist regime, in a monarchy and even in a democracy. The only thing that needs to be done to enslave people is to scare them. If you manage to find a way to scare people, you can make them do what you want."
This guy is on to something @adam
Enjoy the vacation!
From a physician. He is right: the appendix shows 39 #Covid deaths in the 600,000 unvaccinated; 20 in the 600,000 vaccinated.
MORE IMPORTANTLY NO DISCLOSURE OF ALL-CAUSE MORTALITY IN EITHER GROUP.
None of the real-world studies have ever revealed that figure. Gee, I wonder why?

Dems: 'We Will Not Legitimize Georgia's Racist Election Law By Reading It To See What It Says'
"Just trust us, it's racist."
It's soo great to see someone like this stand up for all of us. What a great Patriot.
"I can not participate in what I perceive as an oppressive compliance ritual."
Sometimes I think about how awesome it is that my parents taught me some cooking techniques at a very young age.
They didn’t make me a 5-star chef, but they did teach me how to feed myself. Meanwhile, I know way too many people who never gained the skills, interest, and/or confidence.
I’m not speaking as a parent, but as a now grown-up kid who’s grateful to have this life skill and not live on takeout and frozen meals.
Now it’s time for some sexy ceviche. 👩🍳
Looking for opinions on relocation as we flee Seattle. Looking for a US area where self reliance and freedom are valued, house with a few acres around $300k, friendly people, good twisty roads for motorcycling, short winters. Smaller town with a nice local bar and good climate for gardening. We have no kids and need to be able to make friends outside of kid stuff or church. Is this possible, maybe Tennessee smokies area or South Carolina? Texas seems pretty free these days. Thanks!
I’m back from St Petersburg and Tampa. I should have been in the thick of the Super Bowl death surge but saw no sign of panic in the streets, piles of bodies, or people living in fear. Although masking is in effect by local ordinances, adherence is lassez-faire.
What signs would one realistically expect in a surge of disease? Probably stores closed due to lack of staffing, rise in street crime due to lack of police, members of the public adopting stricter ppe such as papr maybe.
Contrary to popular belief, Florida is not one giant maskless (I hate that word! Maskless should be normal, not like pantsless) beach rave. Plenty of masks here in the wild in the St Petersburg area. I have spotted an odd phenomenon: couples where one person is masked and one person isn’t, always a masked woman with an unmasked man. I’m not sure what the logic behind that is but relationships are full of compromise.
That jeep ad was so condescending. I can just imagine the creative meeting. So what do conservatives like? I don’t know, church and country roads? Maybe throw in some folksy voiceover from a nearly unrecognizable aged pop star? Perfect! That’ll calm them down. Oh and somewhere we have to sell cars idk.
