    Yeah, luckily or unluckily these are lessons that only need to be learned one time. Wonder if we will ever see class-warrants... or mass warrants for individuals belonging to a certain class.

    Agreed. I watched a second video of his on "homesteading essentials" and in the first few minutes he talks about one's "plans." That one might think a welder is non-essential because if one doesn't know how to use a welder, it wouldn't be part of the plan. But that mindset limits the homestead. He suggests expanding one's view on what's possible and include empowering tools like welders in one's plans. An interesting (and valuable) twist on planning. Reminds me of a speech Karen Kwiatkowski gave a long time ago where she speculated that freedom wasn't popular because people lacked the imagination to see how it would benefit them. Our minds can imprison us or free us. I'm going to look into getting a welder.

    I did the flatten the curve thing in March 2020. In April 2020, I declared my personal economy "open." There were no mask mandates at the time, but the 6' stuff was there. I told friends and family that I would respect their 6' zone but that anyone was welcome to enter mine for a fist bump, handshake, hug, or whatever. A year later, no mask, no hand sanitizer, just going about life as normally as I can. I've never had it. I know people who have claimed that they did, but I never saw them sick and don't know their details. No one in my (extended) household got it (couple family members were considered part of our household since the start. They're over for dinner several times a week). I live in a small city and I'm out and about almost daily. The 7-11 alone should have exposed me to it by now.

    So what they've basically done is ban ballot measures. And only the legislature can fix that. And what could possibly motivate the state legislature to fix something that gives some of their power to the people?

    Reading this article I wouldn't call it a "punt." It doesn't sound like any red flag law was specifically before specifically before the court. The Court isn't supposed to rule on issues not part of the case before them. (No saying they've never done that before...but they aren't supposed to). It sounds like Alito, at least, is willing to consider a 4th amendment challenge to red flag laws. I also found this interesting. In the case, Mr. Caniglia and his wife were arguing when he put an unloaded gun on their table and said, “shoot me now and get it over with.” Following the argument, Caniglia’s wife called the non-emergency police line, leading to a visit from law enforcement. The police convinced Mr. Caniglia to go to the hospital for psychological evaluation, despite disagreeing that his behavior was “abnormal” or “agitated.” Proverbs 21:19 King James Version 19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

    That's right small businesses. You must mandate your employees receive the gene therapy otherwise you will go out of business. Also, if any one of those employees has a negative reaction you'd better be up to date on your workers comp--and likley go out of business. You big guys? Keep on scalping our cattle, this one isn't for you to worry about.

    You cannot give Reputation to the same post twice. I'm going to have to watch this more than once to digest it. Not just the report itself, but all of the vectoring in it. So.....to keep people from watching this and thinking "Hey...maybe this is a good idea" and the end CNN throws in a "Trump supports torture and the generals he surrounded himself didn't" unsourced hand grenade. Ummm....if these long time generals were against torture, why didn't they stop it under Bush? Trump wanted to pull all of the troops out of Africa? Sounds good to me. Same for pulling them out of Germany and Afghanistan. And yeah..."diversity" isn't the job description of a military.

    I know people who have been sick this year with something they never experienced before. Some of them were COVID skeptics. And yes I have known some who have been diagnosed as having COVID without ever coming down with any symptoms. I dunno. Personally about 10 years ago I started taking massive doses of garlic whenever I started feeling sick with anything and so far while I've had mild symptoms I have not been knocked off my feet by any cold or flu. Maybe it's possible to catch whatever is causing people to really get sick with COVID-19 and have a strong enough immune system not to get sick. In fact I'm sure of that.

    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.

  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.
