    She didn't use a gun. And even though they want to ban SUVs, they want people to stay under the impression that only guns can be used to cause mayhem. Of course when that antifa lady was run over at the Charlottesville protest that was covered non-stop so....I dunno. Edit: NVM. I see this in your article. The man’s motive was not immediately known. According to investigators, preliminary information suggests that drugs and alcohol could have played a role. He was just drunk and high? No racism as a motive? Yeah....M.A.D.D. was so 1990s.

    Is it just me, or is Newsweek less biased that a lot of the MSM? They also published the gain of function story back in 2020. Note this story also cites a study on the effectiveness of hydroxycholoroquine. https://www.newsweek.com/how-americans-opinion-dr-anthony-fauci-has-changed-over-past-year-1596690 Don't listen to those maniacs. Everybody loves you," Jimmy Kimmel told Dr. Anthony Fauci on his ABC show May 5, shortly after mocking the Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson for criticizing colleges that mandate students get a coronavirus vaccine. Last week, singer Trisha Yearwood was so giddy over meeting Fauci she said she was tempted to have him autograph her vaccine card. Last year, actress Julia Roberts called Fauci her "personal hero." There's also a children's book set for release June 28 called Dr. Fauci: How a Boy From Brooklyn Became America's Doctor, and Disney's National Geographic is working on a presumably laudatory documentary about Fauci. More than a year into the pandemic, the list of trendsetters who have fawned over the chief medical adviser to the president goes on and on. But while Americans had mostly been on board with the praise, new polling data suggests their patience for lockdowns, social distancing and mask-wearing has worn thin, as has their confidence in Fauci, with 60 percent of Republicans, 41 percent of independents and 20 percent of Democrats saying their trust in him has decreased in the past year.

    That's your dishonest definition. You are forcing the word "state" on something that doesn't require a state to exist. The Diggers of England are considered early precursors of anarco communists. No state required. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diggers https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarcho-communism#Early_precursors

    I'm quite familiar with the fact that the gospel reached Africa and the oldest Christian church in the world is in Ethiopia. And I don't know many Christians who aren't familiar with the story of the Ethiopian eunuch. That said "capitalism" as we now know it didn't exist on a large scale until the 16th century. You can't have anti-capitalism without capitalism. A) That's a straw man argument. I never said there was anything anti-capitalist in Scripture. But the early Christian church was not capitalist. B) It's false to say "the organization of the church and the organization of the economy are two separate things." Going all the way back to Moses there were religious laws about economics, such as the fact that Jews could not charge Jews interest. By the way, modern capitalism cannot exist without interest. That's the point. Letting money work for you. Capitalism is more than just using money as a means of exchange or having a market. While you can't have capitalism without market forces, you can have market forces without capitalism. Feudalism predated capitalism in Europe but there were markets. LOL. Jesus kicked the money changers out of the temple so clearly ^that is not true. But more importantly, the same laws of Moses that you referenced at the beginning of your post laid out how the Lord wanted commerce to be done. So from the beginning of the Old Testament church, which predated Jesus by thousands of years, the church was about the organization of the economy.

    I'm doing no such thing. You are misusing words. Communism has nothing to do with communal anything, save communal poverty and communal force of the "state" against the individual. "Communism" is jargon. The term was foisted upon the world by a raft of raving lunatics and has nothing to do with community, communes, communion, and so forth. It has everything to do with painting misleading pictures of false utopias and using the sword to force people into acting as if their stoogery was ultimate paradise. An analogous effect would be seen were I to be stabbing you though the neck repeatedly with a large knife while telling you how much I love and treasure you. The words and what people have been lead to believe they imply turn out to be diametric opposites of the accompanying reality.

    We could go down that pedantic path, but to what end? Pardon me, but that response sounds eerily similar to the brands of rationale used by the hard-left to justify their crimes against humanity. They pull that brand of thing all the time. Generally speaking, I believe people know when they are being genuine and when they are being disingenuous. Few of us fail to see the bullshit and baloney spewed by those who choose to accept absurdity for no other reason than that it gets them what they think they want. And yes, people do that sort of thing all the time, but that isn't really territorial behavior, but rather blind avarice being masqueraded as such.

    People who have had Covid and got over it are going to be this country's saving grace. It's because of them that we can stop mandatory vaccinations. It should be just because of liberty n stuff, but it'll be because about a 1/3 of the country will get no benefit from a vaccination. There is simply no scientific way of making a case to jab those folks.

    That's nice. What would you call the early Christian church? It most certainly was not capitalistic by any stretch of the imagination. Acts 4:32-35. 32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need. You certainly cannot call ^that capitalism by any stretch of the imagination. If this was a state requiring people to sell all of their possessions and keep them in common it would be classic statist communism. Instead, this was done voluntarily. No, the people weren't forced to sell their possessions and let the church distribute to who had need. They chose to do it. When Ananias and Sapphira lied to Peter and claimed they had donated all when they had only donated a portion, this is what Peter told them: Acts 5:3-5 5 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

    No. You are arguing through projection. You are doing exactly what you are falsely accusing me of doing. Someone can believe in communal living without wanting to force communal living on others. Or someone can with to do communal living through government force. Your "wall of text" doesn't change your dishonesty in this regard.

    You are employing a different sense of the term, and in fact "communism" has practically nothing to do with "commune" in reality. What you have outlined here is a prime example of the abuse of language, much like "For The People Act", which is in no conceivable way for the people, but rather the tyrants. Communists are pathological liars by their nature precisely because they are thieves. They want to take what is yours, preferably with your consent, but will employ force if need be. In either case, they are incentivized to lie to and bullshit those around them. In the case of voluntary handing over of the goods, Theye need a line of shit that convinces the rest to put out. "Blah blah equality blah blah blather blah..." The dumbasses and opportunist-parasites go, "OOOOOooooo... we're all EEEEEEEEEKWAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL... Sign me up!" In the case of having to use force, Theye similarly need a line of shit that enables them to rationalize and justify their felonies. And so the methods of NewSpeak come into play, and Orwell didn't invent a whit of it, but gave it a good name. Define terms to suit one's goals, even if it means mangling words and language to the detriment of all. It's all good if it gets you what you want, consequences be damned. This is what Theye do. It is ALL Theye do. Communism has a very specific meaning and it has absolutely nothing to do with "commune", "community", etc. It has everything to do with chicanery and bitter hatred or, far worse, utter indifference by one population to the rights and plights of another, and is thinly disguised as the precise opposite. Furthermore, the purported altruism of the hard-left commie is in fact one of the foulest of human obscenities of self-absorption, masquerading as compassion for one's fellow human beings. The claim of altruistic intent is a clear and infallible sign of malice and malignancy in a human being. I would prescribe the death penalty for any policital officeholder who would dare utter that word as the basis of any legislative effort. And no, I am not joking. "Altruism" is one of the most singularly spectacular lies of all human existence. It is a penultimate obscenity and should be stricken from human consciousness, as it describes an impossibility and labels it as some form of ultimate human virtue. Fie upon all who worship at that altar.

    I would tend to agree with this, but since when did "state" have anything to do with the good between men and their inherent natures? "State" is all about tyranny. The very concept of "state" is repellent to Freemen and attractive only to Weakmen.

    I went to an almost all white elementary school. I remember when a kid from India joined our first grade class. He was darker skinned then me, and I'm not light skinned, but with straight hair. That totally blew my 6 y/o mind. The truth is that India isn't homogenous the way Japan kind of is. But then there are the Ainu, the dark skinned wolly haired indigineous Japanese. So in reality a lot of countries have people of different ethnic groups that we just lump into one for convenience.

    As distrubing as this is, I would consider this an example of what 69360 was saying with regards to scientists doing things for no other reason than to see if they can. Or I would even go a step further and say there was a potential benefit to the research. Staph is already a pathogen that kills people. Doing experiements on humanized mice with aborted fetal tissue grafted onto them to better understand how staph, an already existing pathogen, affects humans could lead to better ways to prevent and treat staph, again an already existing pathogen. Also from your link it sounds like human organs were being grown on the mice. There is a severe shortage of transplant organs. So there's another potential benefit. In fact, the more I think of it, this is the opposite of 69360's point in that it's not "doing things for no other reason except that they can" but rather "doing something unethical for a potential benefit to mankind." Dr. Mengela's research on hypothermia, where he put Jewish prisoners in freezing water bringing them to near death to see if he could revive them, is credited for saving many lives in the decades since it happened. Same thing. Unethical research done for a potential benefit.

    Yeah.....but this is different. They were getting government grant money and sending that grant money to government researchers in other countries. To get that money you have to justify it. This isn't creating a mouse with an ear on its back (although that's actually useful). We did bioweapons research until that was banned. Since then we've continued to do bioweapons research, only we call it "defensive" bioweapons research. That kind of makes sense if you know the enemy has anthrax to make anthrax yourself to know how to defeat it. But it this case money was sent to our arch "enemy" to help the create a more deadly virus. No, the "scientists just being scientists" explanation makes no sense either. Also I see you ignored my pint about tear gas.

    Why is that unlikely? U.S. government researches infected Guatamalen prisoners and military with siphylus. And you're making the mistake of conflating rogue elements in the government with the entire government. See: It is extremely unlikely that there was a secret joint session of congress where the president signed a secret bill and the SCOTUS secretly approved the action to develop a COVID virus as a bioweapon, but it's not extremely unlikely that government beuracrats did this to create a bioweapon. Again I'll ask you the question I have asked the "trust the science" crowd (not saying you're in that crowd), since I first learned of gain of function research last year. What possible motive could there be for doing gain of function research on a deadly virus other than to create a bioweapon? If you do research on how to increase the yield of a nuclear bomb, everyone understands that to be weapons research. Why is this any different?

    Do you consider tear gas a chemical weapon? It's not supposed to be deadly at all. It has the exact effect that it's meant to have. If you have the goal of killing off all of humanity then no it's not a good bioweapon. If your goal is to be just deadly enough to scare the entire world into submission...then damn it's an awesome bioweapon! And what exaclty is the point of "gain of function" of a virus that can kill people except to be used as a weapon? I do not at all buy the "We need to create a more deadly virus so we can know how to fight it" argument. That makes no logical sense.

Professor Susan Michie, of University College London, said she thinks the draconian restrictions should become part of people's every day routine. In a bizarre comparison, she said Britons never used to wear seat belts in cars or 'pick up dog poo in the park' but learned to over time. It comes as the country waits with bated breath to see if Boris Johnson will stick to his roadmap and launch 'Freedom Day' on June 21.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.
