    Governments took a virus with a very low fatality rate and turned it into mayhem. Millions of people have lost their jobs. Many have just given up the concept of work. Suicide rates increased. Mental health issues increased. Millions have died without being able to be with their families. They made us isolate our children and interrupted their fragile development. We saw one of the biggest wealth shifts from the poor to the rich in history. Governments stole our liberties and are threatening us when we want them back. These bureaucrats indebted our children and grandchildren. And the American people let them because for some reason, we trusted them. And what did we get for that trust? A complete and recurring disaster. It's really disgusting. Bureaucracies have dysfunctional organizational management because the incentives are all wrong. One could be forgiven for thinking they do it on purpose to grow their departments. Just as easily, we could have informed the public about the virus... Tell them to boost their immune systems by getting sunlight, exercise, eating healthier and reducing stress. Even an immune system boost of just a few points across a large population would have resulted in thousands, if not millions, of fewer deaths. And we wouldn't be having these viral boomerangs. But we left it up to these damned bureaucracies. And now they want to blame the unvaccinated?? We can't let them get away with this.

    The Health Care Bureaucracy of the World, led by the United States Health Care Bureaucracy, has completely mismanaged the response to the virus. Just like bureaucracies mismanage everything else. This incredibly stupid "follow the science" approach to control the narrative has resulted in millions of unnecessary deaths. And once they won the narrative, they didn't know what to do with it. We simply do not know enough about the nature of viruses to be haphazardly monkeying with them. Whether through research or vaccination. Governments did this to us. Not the unvaccinated. For them to blame the unvaccinated is just a way of pointing the finger hoping nobody's looking at them. They cannot get away with this. This is the message we want to use with our friends.

    So how can they even determine if there is a variant causing further infections?

    Yeah, since they can't tell the difference between Influenza and Covid with a PCR test. How can they even determine the difference between Covid-19 and the so called Delta variant?

    heh, this thread is all over the place. To the question of devil21's willingness to defend his rights, I can unequivocally vouch for him. He has manned up and paid prices to stand up for his rights that I have (to this point) been unwilling to pay myself. I admire him for his efforts in this realm. On the question of secession, I think devil21 is right in that the failed secession attempt in 1861 did lead to greater centralization of government but the successful secession in 1776 lead to greater decentralization. So on the question of secession in general, I'm more on the side of TheTexan in that I support it in concept, but one should consider the costs when considering specific secession attempts, for both successes and failures.

    Until a few years ago, Virginia was a place that respected one's right to keep and bear (some) arms. Virginia was one of the few places on Earth where one could buy a handgun with cash, load it, put it on your hip and walk down the street without any paperwork involved. I miss that Virginia. :sorrow:

    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"?

    And while I do believe the BIble requires civil authorities to punish homosexuality, and with death as the maximum penalty, I don't think it would be legitimate even for the government to just round up people in a gay bar.

  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.

In the twilight of the Cold War, the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.
