The problem with being on the right side of history is everyone calling you wrong while you do it.

I like this particular analogy:

"Sometimes, after my 5-year-old suffers a spill, he requests a Band-Aid, even if nothing is bleeding. It makes him feel better, so I stick a little Batman Band-Aid wherever he wants. But I don’t also stick the Batman Band-Aids all over his siblings, just in case. I don’t force everyone around him into Band-Aids to ease his mental anguish: the equivalent of fearful people forcing the rest of us into masks again."

"We were told to do pointless things for our own good. We knew these things were irrational, but rules were rules: New York City shut down playgrounds and green spaces but opened up city streets alongside those shuttered playgrounds and green spaces. It was ridiculous, and everyone knew it. We can’t go down the stupid road again."

Italy now following in the footsteps of France with the green passport requirements. Mario Draghi and those other asshats in Rome are pieces of sh!t.

I find it curious that Biden is supporting this Russian pipeline despite cancelling Keystone XL. And that I've not seen any media inquiry as to why.

Rand Paul confronts Fauci over 'gain of function' research at Wuhan lab

Paul first addressed to Fauci saying that it "is a crime to lie to congress." Paul went on, "On your last trip to our committee, on May 11, you stated that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. And yet, gain of function research was done entirely in the Wuhan Institute by Dr. Shi, and was funded by the NIH."

Do you want to start a Boogaloo? Because this is how you start a Boogaloo. This kind of shit will turn into warfare.
