    Yeah, I think you're focusing on the wrong aspect of this. https://www.esquire.com/sports/a36530138/simone-biles-summer-olympics-yurchenko-double-pike-explained/ When you're training and developing the ability to do things others can't in order to get the higher difficulty scores, and spending the time and effort that others aren't willing to do, and then they reduce your scores because they're afraid others can't do it, I can empathize with that. That can give you the "John Galt - Why am I bothering?" outlook. And going into the games with that kind of letdown is going to affect your performance. But the interesting part here is NOT about how or why she quit - it's that the left thinks she was treated unfairly. She was. But they treat overperformers unfairly ALL THE TIME. It's only when it happens to one of their "protected classes" that it matters to them. This seems like a great opportunity to show them their own hypocrisy.

    Right?! lol. I really didn't make this thread to discuss her reasons for quitting or to put it into that side of the debate. Frankly, that doesn't interest me. What does interest me is that the Olympic Committee was, in effect, reducing her scores because her degree of difficulty was too high for the others to compete. That's driving the left insane - but they have no problem deducting money from overachievers every other day.

    I've been on many industry calls and workshops on Hydrogen and the economics still aren't there, yet. There is some promise there as an energy storage medium - but it's unlikely it'll ever make a good generation source. Here's a helpful color code that I keep on my desk: In the case of this thread, we're talking about Green Hydrogen. luctor-et-emergo was right when he talked about the inefficiencies. There is some hope to get the efficiency ratings up, but it's going to take a long time. Utility generators love the idea because they know that they'll get paid for all the electric produced for Green or Yellow Hydrogen instead of what is actually used. Nuclear plants are pushing for Pink. The idea is to produce the hydrogen store of energy and then move it and use it somewhere else. It basically becomes a battery. But it'll take a long time to get better than Li-ion and it'll never get better than transmission lines as a way to move energy from one point to another. Doesn't mean there aren't applications for it - just means they are few.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to TheTexan again. Someone please cover me. This is an excellent idea! This would certainly increase the pace of separation and secession!! We could all change our investments to these companies. We'd know which employers to hire us. We'd know where to shop and what services to use. And it would put pressure on the "woke" companies to chill out with their BS. Not only for firearms, but really for every corporate function. It wouldn't take long to separate the wheat from the chaff. Anyone know of such a list??

    I don't watch the Olympics, but I've heard about this recent "controversy" and thought it might be worth a discussion. Apparently, Simone Biles was getting penalized a bit because she was too good and the Olympic Committee thought she may drive other athletes to injury. So she dropped out of some events. https://www.salon.com/2021/05/26/simone-biles-yurchenko-double-pike-gymnastics-scoring/ I don't really care about the specifics, but that Salon article is saying that it's because she's a black female. Of course they are. But isn't this a good example of what the left wants done to every overachiever?? Take more of the wealth they created because they make too much?? Give participation trophies to everyone? Maybe there's something that these Marxists can learn here about "leveling the playing field"?

    The vaccines are effective because the government says they're effective. The masks are effective to stop the spread of COVID caused by the vaccines. The "Delta Variant" comes from India, but it also evolved from all of the unvaccinated folks. Staying at home to save lives is doubleplusgood. #AloneTogether Two plus two equals five. We've always been at war with Eastasia.

    The first thing I'd do is request an antibody test prior to getting the jab. If you've already had Covid (and many people have had it and didn't know it), you most likely have better antibodies than what the vaccines could provide. If your employer wouldn't accept a positive antibody test, then they're not worth working for. You could always try the religious exemption - that may buy you some time and piss off your HR department. Otherwise, group together with other like-minded employees and threaten a lawsuit - the vaccines are still experimental, after all. If all else fails, don't be afraid to quit. There are plenty of jobs out there and you'll be better off in the long run. Start your own business. Do anything that provides value to people. Skills and experience are helpful, but you can get those easily over time.

    Hmmm.... Seems like a relevant data point since roughly a 3rd of the country has recovered from Covid based on the case numbers you've provided before. I wonder why we're not seeing that stat? Why are we not testing for antibodies prior to vaccination? It's the antibodies that matter, right? And you get a fuller set of antibodies from the virus than you do from mRNA shots.

    I don't think anyone is saying the free market is perfect. There is no such thing. But at least with private entities, if you don't like the way you're being treated, you can go elsewhere and stop doing business with them. The problem is when government gets in the mix and starts mandating things to protect businesses from a competitor that would choose to operate differently.

    I've recommended this kind of system for all my friends in Health Care: https://www.moneycrashers.com/cash-only-doctors-no-insurance/ You may end up making less in your paycheck (depending on the clientele), but the job will be much more rewarding and with less stress. Don't underestimate the value of that! You have to understand that you're in the minority in Health Care, so your options will be more limited. But that doesn't mean they're not there. Hell, start your own nursing outfit!

    Well, then work for a company in the minority. But seriously, there is a problem with your mindset if you believe that you can't leave and get paid well. If a company is willing to pay a price for your services, so will a competitor. If your value is high enough, you hold all the cards. And isn't that what we all should be striving for?? Why would anyone want to be subject to the whims of an employer or the State?? I work for a corporation, but I consider myself self-employed. The corporation pays me well for the value I provide them. If either one of us decides it's not working for us anymore, we are both free to leave. No one owes anyone anything. The corporation could crumble tomorrow. I could become incapacitated. If you fear losing your job, then you may want to question your outlook on life - because you're allowing someone else to control you.

    Highly respected doctors were fired and canceled for questioning the science. Consider using your talent in the private market. Is there a market as a patient advocate? Suppose you have a clientele of elderly patients living in nursing homes. You get hired by the family to stop in and visit their loved one and have rights to have access to all their medical records. People that are supposedly ambulated 4 times per day that cannot even stand? People out of bed for all meals that have not been out of bed for a year? I think there is a place for a person that knows what goes on and can advocate on behalf of the patient.

    The problem with the libertarian perspective of let every business make it own decision or the philosophy of trading labor for money is that it only works one way. Any business owner can become destitute in the flash of a second by any trivial lawsuit. Only big corporations have the wherewithal to sustain the greased palms of societal bureaucrats. Where was liberty for all the businesses ordered shut down during the Spamdemic? Business owners are forced to comply with all sorts of regulations. Free speech is only allowed when it is sanctioned. Businesses are only allowed to make decisions when it fits the agenda or narrative. Youtube can make their own rules and silence Alex Jones or Donald Trump. They can promote BLM and a narrative about the dangers of white supremacy but stifle any legitimate debate because after all they are a private company. That is of course until some libtard decides what they are doing needs more regulations and then they haul them in and mandate propaganda.

    You are acting as if people couldn't walk away. Here's what you say, "yeah, sorry. I don't want to do any of that stuff - I'll sell my services elsewhere, thanks." I understand the corporate/State relationship and yes, that's a problem. The state wants to control of people and business and corporations want the cover of the state so they don't have to worry about competition from other businesses who aren't doing these kinds of mandates. That's the problem. It's not inflexible dogmatic libertarianism, it's just a belief in personal ownership and responsibility. If I'm a business owner, I should be able to select employees that meet my criteria. If I'm an employee, I should be able to select an employer that meets my criteria. That's a free exchange. Businesses that want to mandate vaccinations will have employees that have no problem with it and businesses that don't will have employees that are fine with that. This wouldn't even be an issue if not for the imposition of the State.

    Dammit. People need to understand their power! Your company doesn’t own you or your labor. You sell them your labor. If you don’t like the terms of the agreement, stop selling to them! If more people did this, businesses wouldn’t pull this stupid crap. They wouldn’t be able to. It’s a free mutual exchange. You are the seller. If your buyer is placing crazy demands on you, end the arrangement. Screw ‘em. They don’t own you! Know your value and don’t be cajoled into accepting less than you deserve.

  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.
