Why are they so hellbent on striping us of our autonomy and liberty? Don't they have enough wealth they've plundered from us already? What more do they want?

Pfizer, I recently researched it since it's what I received, is 95% effective at preventing symptomatic covid and 100% at preventing severe covid 14 days after the 2nd dose. I think in the US J&J is the only one in the 70% range. Moderna is over 90% too.
did you know that seatbelts don't prevent deaths resulting from car accidents?
sorry, this disenfranchises the poor blacks and hispanics who cant afford to get this pass. Why do you hate black people?
I'll have you know that I was a student at Harvard University studying sociology when I discovered (and proved) that non whites can not be expected to provide proof of voting eligibility in the same manner as white people racistly expect them to. I spent all semester researching why disadvantaged minorities don't vote in the same numbers as white people and I came to the irrefutable conclusion that there is mass voter suppression going on because these people can't be expected to provide proof of eligibility like the white population. It's eurocentric to want to validate eligibility to vote. Indeed, nearly every country in the EU requires some form of proof of voting eligibility before they let a citizen vote.
Horribly disenfranchised.
My PhD dissertation was on the topic of voting disenfranchisement. In it I argued successfully that egalitarian voting can only be done in models such as california. We must rely on an individuals self attestation that they are eligible to vote and we must keep these voting records secure with the state Secretary and have codified in law that the state Secretary may not under any circumstance transfer any voting records to outside departments for the purpose of eligibility verification, as this would open up the floodgates for racist ice policies to deport people.
So don't take the moral ground on me you fascist, I've worked my entire life to remove eligibility verification from voting so that the entire population is franchised and the racist expectation that minority populations prove the same eligibility that we expect from white people be shelved


In a series of interviews aired by CNN, Dr. Deborah Birx, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and other Trump veterans tell of their own pandemic battles. Variants and eased restrictions are pushing cases up around the United States.

In interviews broadcast on CNN Sunday night, former President Donald J. Trump’s pandemic officials confirmed in stark and no uncertain terms what was already an open secret in Washington: The administration’s pandemic response was riddled with dysfunction, and the discord, untruths and infighting most likely cost many lives.

Dr. Deborah L. Birx, Mr. Trump’s coronavirus response coordinator, suggested that hundreds of thousands of Americans may have died needlessly, and Adm. Brett P. Giroir, the testing czar, said the administration had lied to the public about the availability of testing.

The comments were among a string of bombshells that emerged during a CNN special report that featured the doctors who led the government’s coronavirus response in 2020.

Dr. Robert R. Redfield, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, accused Mr. Trump’s health secretary, Alex M. Azar III, and the secretary’s leadership team of pressuring him to revise scientific reports. “Now he may deny that, but it’s true,” Dr. Redfield said in an interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent. Mr. Azar, in a statement, denied it.

Dr. Stephen K. Hahn, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said his relationship with Mr. Azar had grown “strained” after the health secretary revoked the agency’s power to regulate coronavirus tests. “That was a line in the sand for me,” Dr. Hahn said. When Dr. Gupta asked him if Mr. Azar had screamed at him, Dr. Hahn replied: “You should ask him that question.”

>An article entirely about theoreticals

Can't look at yourself in the mirror, huh
Really. It was over 500K under Trump. It's over 1M now? Or are you just a product of a red-state education, you inbred trailer dweller.
Have you ever seen a Trump cultist who understood even 8th grade mathematics, let alone statistics?
Except the riots and shit weren't hitting critical mass until summer. We had mask refusal at day 1 and the trump followers also doing their own (maskless) protests by June.

Protests were going to happen no matter what you did.
Perhaps it has to do with the President title. For example only two guards who got fucked over in the jan. riot are suing him for less than 100k each.

Also another obstacle is proving any other person in that position would have prevented your family member from directly dying from the disease given what was known. If your loved one was going around saying fuck masks all day while we had no clue about how long it lasted on surfaces, well tough shit.

The Vatican has been digging a secret tunnel in Jerusalem in order to exhume King David's DNA and resurrect the Messiah, a rabbi has claimed.

It's claimed there is a passage approximately 1,970 feet long and 5 feet wide under the Church of the Dormition on Mount Zion, on which construction was completed about 12 years ago.

Rabbi Daniel Asor of the Yanar Institute claims it was built to allow members of the Church of the Dormition to exhume the remains of King David (the King of Israel who killed the giant Goliath), who is believed to have been buried in Mt Zion.

Asor has also alleged that the church is acting on instructions from the Vatican, which he says has a plan to collect DNA samples from King David's bones.

The Vatican will then use his DNA to clone an entirely new human, who they will then attempt to fool the world into believing is the returned Messiah.

The Jerusalem Municipality recently bowed to pressure and confirmed that there is an "old tunnel" in the subterranean area.

Official documentation revealed the 150-metre-long tunnel consists of several underground rooms containing ancient artefacts.

The vatican had already succeeded in June 14, 1946, to clone David.

Vatican were working with Nazi scientists during ww2, and had to destroy all research in 1946.

The Nazis used David as a test subject in advance of De Furor.

Who woulda thunk that David would turn out so white!

So the boys from brazil is true, except they used a dead jew king?

Dna still viable 2500 yrs later?


DNA cloning wasn't a thing until 1998.
The genetic experiments by the Nazis were purely breeding.
Does this story smell like shit? You know, since it was pulled out of some kike's ass.

Senate Republicans cleared the way Thursday for new, sweeping restrictions to voting in Texas that take particular aim at forbidding local efforts meant to widen access.

In an overnight vote after more than seven hours of debate, the Texas Senate signed off on Senate Bill 7, which would limit extended early voting hours, prohibit drive-thru voting and make it illegal for local election officials to proactively send applications to vote by mail to voters, even if they qualify.

The legislation is at the forefront of Texas Republicans’ crusade to further restrict voting in the state after last year’s election. Although Republicans remain in full control of state government, Texas saw the highest turnout in decades in 2020, with Democrats continuing to drive up their vote counts in the state’s urban centers and diversifying suburban communities.

Like other proposals under consideration at the Texas Capitol, many of the restrictions in SB 7 would target initiatives championed in those areas to make it easier for more voters to participate in elections.

The bill — deemed a priority by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick — now heads to the House for consideration after moving rapidly through the Senate. Just two weeks after it was filed, a Senate committee advanced it Friday. That approval followed more than five hours of public testimony, largely in opposition over concerns it would be detrimental to voters who already struggle to vote under the state’s strict rules for elections.

While presenting the bill to the Senate, Republican state Sen. Bryan Hughes said the legislation “standardizes and clarifies” voting rules so that “every Texan has a fair and equal opportunity to vote, regardless of where they live in the state.”

>Because thats not the argument I made. I partially stated and implied whites were simply better at funding their own welfare which is objectively supported by data.
This is not supported by the data. This is all just mindless conjecture that white people are better at running countries because they're white. You were arguing a causal link, anon.

>Blacks and Hispanics are net drains on welfare.
Everyone on welfare is a net drain on welfare, anon. That's the point of welfare. Everyone in Sweden on welfare is a drain on welfare. You're not even making any sense at this point.

>Secondly you are using the US which is the outlier when compared to these countries and using it as the gold standard to judge the worlds welfare. Are you not seeing the flaw in your logic?
There is no flaw in my logic. My logic is that we have both empirical data and case studies that show safety nets pay for themselves in the long run and my prescriptive statement is that we need to do more of it in the U.S. That's my entire argument.

>The issue here is you think hyperinflation is just a speedbump and not the steps to social mobility getting higher and higher each time fucking the poor harder and harder.
Hyperinflation just isn't as big of an issue as people make it out to be.

>The left likes to blame a lot of shit on socioeconomical problems and has trouble admitting some people are poor because they make poor choices.
This is the crux of your dumb dumb argument. Socioeconomics definitively proves that people are very predictably products of their environment. Rich people with access to good schools do better in life than poor people who go to poor schools. Its a statistical reality. We can go with your option and just mindlessly blame personal responsibility or we could do the things we objectively know works and improve people's environments. Its all there in the data I sourced.

>Its honestly pretty cringe you cant put 2+2 together and are fighting this when you could take the same money the government would put towards single payer and already get better service with private insurance.
Its pretty cringey that you're so confident about a topic you know absolutely nothing about. The issue is not enough people are ensured but that our healthcare has the worst cost to outcome ratio among first world countries. I'm shocked that I have to say this but everyone deciding to buy insurance is not the solution to our healthcare problem.

>If youre that damn poor then you already get subsidies for better insurance and the people that always bitch about healthcare costs are the ones that dont have insurance.
The issue if you just don't have any idea how healthcare works. Poor people statistically have the worst access to health insurance and that doesn't even include the issue of deductibles, long term hospital stays, emergency care or prescription medication. If you honestly think that healthcare subsidies are adequate enough on average to prevent middle/low income people from falling into medical debt you're just nowhere near educated enough on this issue to be having this conversation. You live in a fucking alternate universe.

>And then government fucks with it and premiums shoot through the roof. And having an open mind is apparently very painful for liberals. Im not surprised.
Says the guy who thinks government intervention is the reason our healthcare costs more than any other first world nation on the planet. You really are cripplingly stupid.
Turns out Biden's proposal to lower Medicare age from 65 to 60 has broad bipartisan popular support. You likely understand this fact but many people don't: There are millions who fall into the gap of making too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to qualify for ACA subsidies. They effectively can't get health insurance because w/o the subsidies there's no way they can afford the premiums. Many of them fall into that 60-65 age group which means they wait to seek medical treatment or even physical exams which may mean the difference between life or death particularly at that age.
>Turns out Biden's proposal to lower Medicare age from 65 to 60 has broad bipartisan popular support. You likely understand this fact but many people don't
A public option healthcare system, much like the one in Canada, is popular with about 65% of the population. There is pretty comprehensive support for healthcare reform in the U.S. I think the discourse is just really polarized between absolute conservative dipshits who think our healthcare system is the best in the world and braindead lefties who think anything less than medicare for all (a generally unpopular policy which would be the most radically progressive healthcare system in the world) is evil.

>There are millions who fall into the gap of making too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to qualify for ACA subsidies. They effectively can't get health insurance because w/o the subsidies there's no way they can afford the premiums.
This is far too nuanced an understanding of how healthcare works for the anon I was speaking with to wrap his mind around. The notion that anybody who is poor can just scoop up subsidies and afford great healthcare is so pants on head retarded I actually don't know how to address it. The preventative care aspect is also gigantic because, as you said, the people who can't afford regular office visits will wait until their conditions become so bad their only recourse is an emergency room and their medical costs become exponentially higher than they would be otherwise.

While unaware that he was being recorded by a nursery camera, a Michigan home inspector pleasured himself with an Elmo doll, according to police.

Kevin Wayne VanLuven, 59, was arraigned yesterday on a pair of misdemeanor charges stemming from an unsettling incident last month at a residence in Oxford Township, a Detroit suburb.

Investigators say VanLuven had been hired by the home’s owners to inspect their property prior to a sale. The owners told police that they let VanLuven and the buyer’s real estate agent into the home, then departed the residence during the March 12 inspection.

While away from the property, a 22-year-old female homeowner received an alert on her phone that a webcam had detected movement in the residence’s nursery. The woman then accessed the camera feed and saw VanLuven touching himself, cops report. The home inspector then picked up an Elmo doll and “appeared to be pleasuring himself with the doll,” police charge.

VanLuven, with the furry Sesame Street character in his hand, is pictured above in a webcam still.

After the homeowners called 911, sheriff’s deputies confronted VanLuven, who claimed to have only moved the doll to inspect an electrical outlet. But when cops told him that there was a camera in the nursery, VanLuven reportedly made incriminating statements and apologized for his actions.

Charged with aggravated indecent exposure and malicious destruction of property under $200, VanLuven was booked into the Oakland County jail, where he is being held in lieu of $2500 bond. A judge has directed VanLuven to undergo a mental health evaluation, and has prohibited him from being alone in any residential property that he does not own. Additionally, he has been ordered to have no contact with the Oxford Township homeowners.

>They have the same right to legal protection against discrimination as a cis hetero black man, or a cis gay white man.
It depends on what you mean by legal protection. Firstly, the last presidential administration spent the last four years trying to erase trans people from all forms of legal protections and then banned them from the military. They also passed EOs giving places like homeless shelters and medical facilities the right to deny service to trans people based on religious beliefs. That is also not even including the wide variety of employment and housing discrimination that occurs on a daily basis. So, no, to try to pretend like legal protections and discrimination against trans people hasn't been a gigantic point of contention over the past decade is pretty dumb.

>A person targetting you as a trans person is as legally culpable as a homophobe or a racist.
Well, no. Trans people are a relatively new addition to protected classes and LGBTQ people are uniquely targeted by religious exemptions in a way that minorities are not.

>You have that guaranteed human right.
I feel like you're one of those people who thinks that racism stopped the second that it became illegal to discriminate against black people. You seem to conflate legal protection with societal acceptance quite a bit. Proving discrimination is really fucking hard. Its also expensive.

>What rights don't you have?
I'll give you a fun example - its currently illegal to refuse employment to someone based on their race. Even with that law in place, studies show that people with black sounding names receive fewer call backs for interviews than equally qualified people with white sounding names. Legal protection =/= societal acceptance.
On behalf of all straight men: no we dont
>I'll give you a fun example - its currently illegal to refuse employment to someone based on their race. Even with that law in place, studies show that people with black sounding names receive fewer call backs for interviews than equally qualified people with white sounding names.

And that is a criminal act. Are you suggesting that people breaking the law means you don't have human rights? Your argument seems to be "Well there are people who don't like us"'

Nobody is universally liked and being universally liked is not a human right. So what rights, that everyone else has and I can't believe I have to state that caveat, what rights that everyone else has don't you have?
>Misgender people all you want. Scream tranny at people on the internet all you want. There is no law against it.
No law yet. Plenty of activists are pushing for a law, and some nations already have such laws. Trans rights is a dogwhistle for criminalizing "hate" speech.

The past week has marked a watershed moment in Russia’s relations with the West – and the US in particular. In two dramatic, televised moments, US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin changed the dynamics between their countries, perhaps irrevocably.

Most commentators in the West have focused on Putin’s “trolling” of Biden by dryly – though, according to Putin, unironically – wishing his American counterpart “good health.” This, of course, came after Biden called Putin a “killer.”

But a more careful and complete reading of Putin’s message to the US is necessary to understand how a Russian leader is, finally, ready to tell the US: Do not judge us by your claimed standards, and do not try to tell us what to do.

Putin has never asserted these propositions so bluntly. And it matters when he does.

Putin’s message to Biden
The tense test of strength began when Biden was asked about Putin in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos and agreed he was “a killer” and didn’t have a soul. He also said Putin will “pay a price” for his actions.

In my purely nonpartisan, apolitical view, you are a lame loser who think it's funny.

What are the Senate Democrats supposed to do? Making 15$ minimum wage its own bill wouldn't somehow magically make it able to bypass the filibuster, the GOP are still going to block it no matter what because their only goal is to make the Democrats look bad to politically uninformed voters like you who will ignorantly blame them for any delays in legislative action.
Republicunts are never going to agree to a $15 minimum wage even though the country desperately needs it, so it’s either reconciliation or nuking the filibuster.

>Supporters of Donald Trump are more likely than supporters of Joe Biden to say they would oppose a mandatory mask policy. Half (54%) of those who choose Trump in a trial heat against Biden say they would oppose a mask mandate, compared to 8 percent of those who say they will vote for Biden in 2020. In contrast, two in five (41%) Trump supporters say they support a mask mandate, compared to 91 percent of Biden supporters.

As a California resident where we did have a mask mandate I can tell you masks were not the issue
What hit California hard was how our governor managed this.
He closed off all small businesses and only a designated larger businesses as critical, and so now you had everybody, sick and healthy, being funneled into the same exact Walmarts and targets.

Nowhere in the US did we have an actual lockdown and it was up to the governor's to do so, and the ones who did quarantine botched it for the most part

Most guns used in crimes are stolen or straw purchased. There were only 12 mass shootings in 2019, 10 in 2018, and 2 in 2020 and each year fewer than 100 people were killed in mass shootings. Dems want to ban guns because they are planning another holocaust.

The majority of Americans voted for Trump both times. Also Trump never tried to deny anyone's basic human rights, like Biden does.
The fuck? How does a 3.5+ million popular vote margin of victory for Hillary equate to the "majority of people voted for Drumphus?" Don't forget, Drumphus set up a commission to investigate the 3.5+ million "fraudulent" votes that disbanded after finding nothing. And 7+ million the second time along with Biden's electoral college margin of victory the same as Drumphus' 2016 which he called "a landslide."

Now you're just being MyPillow/Powell/Drumphus silly.
There was massive voter fraud and Californian's aren't Americans
Don't be surprised when he never does this at all. It doesn't help build oil pipeline in Syria or lower wages for American/the employees of his donors. I am predicting he will make several statements about this and then do nothing. I actually kind of wish he would try it, because I want to see the law enforcement in my district pledge to not enforce it.

WAUKEGAN, Ill. (WLS) -- Waukegan's Board of Education met Tuesday night as it considers changing the names of two of its schools, Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Daniel Webster Middle School.

Jefferson, who was the nation's third president, owned slaves. Webster was a former senator who supported slavery. Renaming committees were formed for each school, and included people in the community, students and staff.

The school board heard concerns from the public Tuesday night over one of the finalists in the running to be the new name for Thomas Jefferson Middle School.

The country's first Black President and First Lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, is one of the top three choices for the school's new name, but is drawing opposition in the area with a large Latinx population.

RELATED: Waukegan renaming 2 middle schools due to namesakes' ties to slavery

"I will not be part of renaming a school after someone who did not and does not represent the undocumented community," said District 60 school board member Edgar Castellanos. Castellanos said he came to the United States undocumented as a child.
Waukegan activist Julie Contreras works with a group that runs shelters for undocumented children at the U.S./Mexico border.

She said former President Obama failed to deliver on promises to help the immigrant population.

>Anyone with even a cursory understanding of American history recognises the fact America was built from stolen land.
What the hell is "stolen land"? You're saying the land wasn't acquired legitimately in your opinion and still "belongs" to others, not to the Americans who built the nation upon it. Talk of others as "the rightful owners" is ridiculous for an American citizen to say.
>The fuck you wailing about? What institutions - white supremacy and systemic racism?
The latest is getting rid of police officers because black people are apparently not compatible with law enforcement and the justice system. Education is also seeing widespread reform. What you call "excising white supremacy" typically means removing any European influence, no matter how fundamental. You can't take the European influence out of America and still consider it the same country. Even our symbols and history have calls for reform; changing the national anthem, removing statues of our national heroes, the 1619 project that aims to make the history of America centered around black slaves.
These issues are all racial and reflect an inability for non-Europeans to assimilate into the American identity.
Too bad for you your christian white nationalist/supremacist "1776 Commission" got swept back into the sewer where it belongs, I guess. I'll remember you in my prayers to the pantheon of the gods.
