Re: Dr Seuss

As a libertarian (with a small l by the way), I agree that Amazon or the foundation can stop selling the books. That doesn’t mean the reasons are not incredibly moronic. Are libertarians not allowed to talk about that? I think you have a dumb, caricature-ish view of libertarianism. Has anyone here ...

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: 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 seem to remember being in a long line of people to get it. Isn't small pox vaccination given individually at a certain age? My friend who is same age as me, lived less than a ...

Re: Dr Seuss

Am I missing something? Amazon banned those Seuss books. Not "banned". "Dropped". It's just another way that a private company chooses to conduct it's business same as another private company like eBay deciding to have an incredibly long list of items that are prohibited and restricted to be sold t...

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

What I find completely baffling is how many seem incapable of changing viewpoints as evidence comes in. What I think is relatively clear from the evidence. Masks and lockdowns do work and were implemented even in heavy red states when things got out of control For the large majority, COVID ranged f...

Re: Dr Seuss

Who is banning books? Isn't this the Libertarian way? A private group, the estate of Dr. Seuss who owns all the books and decides which ones to publish, decided not to publish six books. The government played no role in this. I'm confused why professed Libertarians have a problem with this. Who is ...

Sure hope lending rules haven't been loosened along with all of this again....

Do you have a take on the above?


Generally not a concern of mine. But it seems like this type of thing would be of concern to more than a few here. But maybe I've misread those people.
