So many American idiots think that we can open the economy without adequately suppressing the virus,
While this idiotic thinking, prolongs and supports the contagion, and thus makes trying to open the economy without addressing the virus properly, an exercise in deadly futility.
If the American idiots who are still promoting this dysfunctional…[Read more]
The G614 mutation of the COVID-19 virus is now the dominant strain. (It came thru Europe to the USA, and was devastating to the Northeast.) It is said to be 3 to 9 times as infectious as the D614 strain (that was initially prominent on the West…[Read more]
But just put it in your post, as I did the above, WITHOUT using the insert/edit link, please.
Then we can google that link.
I am amending my advice from my last post. Don’t put the link in EXACTLY as it is. Rather, leave one obvious extra space, as I did, this time, in typing out the link.

…the fascist Communist dotard and his cronies will make it so uninhabitable that life won’t be on the planet anymore. That’s how they will destroy the planet- making it uninhabitable by any living organism that we know of.
Oh boy. You must think the tRump is going to remain in power after Jan 20, 2021. I am still hopeful that he will not,…[Read more]
The quote “Peace without justice is tyranny” – by William Allen White
is shorter, and therefore catchier, while still being an essentially similar message, hence it is superior to my:
“Peace without Justice is Successful Repression”
(In my hubris, I was proud for a moment of my “creativity”, but lo, all glory is fleeting.)
In every instance of mob complaints and street protests against bad Cops, the suspect was asking for it.
Breonna Taylor (only knew the suspect) and she was asleep when the cops broke in to her residence, firing their pistols like drunken monkeys and killing her (tho the vast majority of their shots missed her, six did not). So I don’t think she…[Read more]
Like I’ve been saying, when I put the sources in, my content doesn’t post.
If that is true, it sucks. Hopefully the admin will figure out the issue.
But would you mind copying the address of one of the sources that you most want to pass on? for example

Everything we look at is a pattern and a 3D pattern at that. Whatever we see is a pattern. Without a pattern there is only chaos…. 🙂
Ok, (although some things are definitely seem more “patterny” than others, but) let’s generally assume that “Everything we look at is a pattern and a 3D pattern at that”.
But that does not address the “awareness” p…[Read more]
TimB started the topic Harvard Gazette games out how the tRump could steal the election in the forum Politics and Social Issues 3 days, 1 hour ago
It seems clear to me that the tRump is recognizing that he will very likely lose a free and fair election. He has been very actively claiming that there is going to be terrible fraud by the Dems.
It seems clear to me from what the tRump himself has said, that he hopes that…[Read more]

I saw my 1st episode of Star Trek: Discovery.
I enjoyed the beautiful cinematography. The writing is ok too. I think it will be one of the better Star Trek iterations.
However, the appearance of the Klingons, confused me, as it has throughout the various iterations of Star Trek.
Can anyone explain (logically in terms of the ongoing story…[Read more]

…senior leaders at the Pentagon, speaking on the condition of anonymity, acknowledged that they were talking among themselves about what to do if Mr. Trump, who will still be president from Election Day to Inauguration Day, invokes the Insurrection Act and tries to send troops into the streets, as he threatened to do during the protests against…

This post was begun 4 years ago. Are we better off now, than we were 4 years ago?
Hmmm. I’d say that Putin IS definitely better off.
And the tRump is as much in the pocket of Putin as ever.
And the tRump HAS STEADILY INEXHORABLY installed his SHALLOW STATE of lackees, and has gained power over more and more, previously independent facets of g…[Read more]

timb, I thought I’d get a little pushback on that comment. Sure, he’s done a lot of damage. Let’s hope it’s all fixable.
I do hope so. When people have crashed into cars of mine in the past, the obvious damage was fixed by their insurance coverage. But you never know if some fundamental underlying mechanical weakness was caused by the crash. At…[Read more]

There is also no evidence that the correlation between higher education and atheism/secularism exists outside of W.E.I.R.D. populations.
A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. I can see how the W.E.I.R.D. moniker would draw your attention as some pop psychology that you can twist into supporting your preconceived…[Read more]

He has not accomplished very much of his agenda.
The tRump has almost certainly accomplished his agenda of installing more federal justices than almost any POTUS and they are probably more tRump loyalists rather than just conservatives. AND the tRump will have 3 SCOTUS appointees. That is a major major agenda. And it is going to hurt. St…[Read more]

Religion is not about worshipping God. It’s about not sleeping with your neighbor’s wife, not passing off fake twenty-dollar bills, not having drug-dealers for boyfriends, not shooting members of other gangs, not resisting arrest, and a few other wicked things.
Your religion seems to be about continually coming up with trollish comments. I mea…[Read more]
