    The conditioning is already in place. The jab requires two shots, roughly a month apart. With new strains of covid, booster jabs will be required. It'll be monthly "updates" (boosters?) within 3 years. You heard it here first.

    Well...it's better than nothing. Employers will balance the risk of lost productivity from potential outbreaks to the risk of vaccine adverse reactions. I think to convince employers against vaccine mandates is to point out alternatives. For example there are COVID test kits that can attach to your cellphone and give you results in minutes. https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions-treatments/info-2021/at-home-covid-tests.html There are also COVID sniffing dogs. https://phys.org/news/2021-04-accuracy-dogs-coronavirus.html If you can show you aren't infected, it shouldn't matter that you aren't vaccinated. If you are infected you need to be home anyway.

    ^This. It's funny that some years ago I was at a conference that was supposed to be comemorating the history of a black hospital in Nashville that existed back during segregation, and lasted a few decades after desegregation but ultimately closed. But it became a political farce. One of the presenters was talking about the very real problem of racial bias in medicine. Apparently studies show that doctors are less likely to prescribe powerful pain medication to blacks than to whites assuming falsely that blacks have a higher pain tollerance. During the question and answer session I asked "Aren't these powerful pain medications the main reason why whites, as opposed to blacks, are suffering from the opiod crisis?" He was like "Yes that's true. But it's still racist." Well....if the racism HELPS me...is it bad? Right now some people are saying that blacks should be prioritized to receive the vaccine. That sounds more like blacks being prioritized as guinea pigs rather than "reverse racism." But that's just me.

    This belongs here. On my favorite sci-fi TV show of all time, Babylon 5 (though The Expanse might overtake that), there is an episode where Mr. Girabaldi is restoring an old motorcyle. He has problems finishing the project because he can't find parts or fuel. Lennier, one of the aliens on the show, finds out that the last gasoline powered motorcycle was built in 2035 and that the motorcyle was a sign of masculinity and "sexual prowess." Lennier later takes it upon himself to finish the project for Girabaldi with using a clean energy source. Girabaldi is pissed at first, but then enjoys the experience and he and Lennier ride around the space station.

    Yes. We know we're being lied to. But what exactly is that lie? That's the problem the 9/11 Truth movement faced. All every faction in that movement ever agreed on is that it could have actually been prevented and that we were lied to by the government. Beyond that there was the no plane theory, the "missile / drone" theory (with or without a plane), the thermite theory, remote control plane theory, controlled opposition "patsy" theory, LIHOP vs MIHOP etc. These theories were not mutually exclusive (I subscribe to several of them) but some conflicted with each other. The strength of the 9/11 Truth movement is this. We were (all) certain that none of the government response was justified. The wars were not justified. The police state was not justified. There was no ongoing threat. Even the "blowback" theory put forward in public by Ron Paul and Michael Schuerer embraced the idea that the wars and police state were not justified. When it comes to the pandemic, the difference in the views also leads to a difference in responses. There is the "there is no virus" view. Maybe the illness comes from 5G. I don't think that makes sense. People get sick...and then either die or get better. Some sort of radiation poisoning just gets progressively worse. Then there is "It's just the flu." Maybe. I do think it is an altered coronavirus though. Coronaviruses are not new. They cause colds. This one was altered IMO to be lethal. Some accept the "It really came from the wild" theory but reject all mitigation measures including masks, vaccines, lockdowns and travel restrictions. I wore masks back when the CDC said not to. (Call me a rebel....and something of a bootlegger as I was going through the back roads of Tennessee finding masks to re-sell and ordering them from China when they were not available in stores). I think Iceland and Taiwan did pretty good without lockdowns, though both did restrict international travel and Taiwan masked up. (It doesn't seem like Iceland masked up). These days I'm kind of ambivalent about masks. I wear them sometimes. Sometimes I don't. I don't argue if someone says put one on. What the coronavirus truth movement seems united on is that mandates, whether they are lockdowns or mask mandates or vaccine mandates, are wrong. So what do we do? Sure. Fighting is great. But how? A call to action, without a plan, just leads to frustration. Though I no longer listen to Alex Jones, I do like the idea of an "information war." What information needs to get out? IMO this is key. 1) Dr. Fauci can't be trusted. It's not just Dr. Fauci, but he is the focal point, the "point person" the "kindly grandfather type" 2) The virus is most likely man made.

    Which is why when you try to remove the nuance, you end up flat. I'm actually glad to see Ron's position on this mirrors my own as I laid out earlier. There is no reason why a private company would do this without government coercion. So if this ever became an issue - which it won't - then you'd have to address the underlying problems. Obviously, some politicians are taking a proactive step to tell businesses to not slice their own throats. Ok - not really necessary, but also not really harmful compared to everything else they do. It's just a political show. But I'd rather have that political show than the opposite. In reality, if DeSantis and Abbot would have banned government from pressuring private companies to institute these vaccine passports, it would have accomplished the same thing without this ridiculous controversy you're trying to drum up. Because companies will NOT do this on their own.

    I know you really want to remove all nuance (again to keep it in the theoretical realm), but nuance matters. First of all, this hasn't been a problem in the real world, so we are not likely to see legislation banning this. If it did become an issue, the corporate interests would line up against the ban, because they'd HAVE to ensure that it was as nearly ubiquitous as possible so that they wouldn't be driving their business to their competitors. If there was a collusion among businesses that in turn drove privacy advocates to request a ban on the practice, I'd like to see the bill to address the collusion rather than an outright ban, but that's not the real world either.

    In the real world, I'd have to see the language of any proposed bill. In theory, businesses should be able to turn away anyone for any reason at any time. But that's not the world we're living in. Government is already forcing businesses to engage in commerce with people that they may not want to. If this fairy-tale ban you're proposing prevented government from coercing businesses to collude with each other I think I might support it.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
