Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

@Vinny The Salk polio vaccine was administered orally on a sugar cube. The vaccine that used 'the gun’ was for small pox. I thought the Salk vaccine (the "dead" virus version) was injected--albeit with a syringe and not an injector gun--and the Sabin vaccine (the attenuated live virus version) was ...

Re: Wikipedia Is the Last Best Place on the Internet

I use it every day and I contribute now and then (both editing and funds). It is amazing that it is still ad-free. It’s gotten a bit political, which is annoying. The “deletionists” bug the shit out of me. Wikipedia used to be great. Once anything 'becomes political', it can no longer be trusted as...

It does seem like a lot of the antifa crowd are angry liberal arts graduates.
They're probably angry bc they just realized they spent $100,000+ on a worthless degree that will not get them a job.

I guess the master plan of the US government is to kill off all of its health care workers then. Almost all of them got the vaccine so I guess they are all going to die, and then there will be no one left to treat any patients. Excellent plan. ::)

Re: How does the G-Fund Work?

You basically get the return of ITTs with the stability of a money market fund. In it's entire history the G fund has never went down even for a day. That sounds so awesome it should be restricted to government employees. Regular citizens don't deserve a rigged investment like that. Also, if it mak...

As a side bar my wife and i were watching tv and a bizarre commercial came on for the NYT. It was very weird imagery and they kept flashing "truth" on the screen. Pravda anyone?
You can call the material in the NYT a lot of things, but 'truth' is not one of them.

It is actually lack of proper laws and regulations that creates a lot of the situation

The last thing health care needs is more regulations. Less rules would would create a better market based solution. But of course, that's way to Libertarian of a perspective, so never mind.

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

I'm hardly neurotypical, but I confess that my one exposure to Monte Python (a movie about 40 years ago in which the characters pranced around on make-believe horses) left me thinking, "I don't get it!" I generally 'got it', I just never thought it was all that funny. Unlike many friends who though...

Re: Bitcoin as a complement or alternative to gold in the PP

The fact that IRS form 1040 now asks
"At any time during 2020, did you receive, sell, send, exchange, or otherwise acquire any financial interest in any virtual currency?"
