We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Law PROF. KATE STITH SPEAKS: “GROW UP”
COVID Forever: Media Trying To Stoke Fear Over Latest Breakout In Europe
I thought we only had a few years left to solve the problem
Food for the Table, Not for the Gas Tank. With prices skyrocketing, it’s time for Washington to suspend—and ultimately repeal—the Renewable Fuel Standard.
Biden Falsely Blames Sex Addict Shooting Spree on Systemic Racism
Now that Joe Biden’s president, the Times finally admits: Hunter’s laptop is real
The NYT Now Admits the Biden Laptop -- Falsely Called "Russian Disinformation" -- is Authentic. The media outlets which spread this lie from ex-CIA officials never retracted their pre-election falsehoods, ones used by Big Tech to censor reporting on the front-runner.

The reason the NYT is disclosing that the Hunter Biden laptop story is authentic is the same reason they squelched the reporting of it in October 2020: Because it serves the purpose. I notice the Post didn't speculate on that aspect of the story (Why?). And the NYT apparently wants it to be noticed, or it would have been disclosed over the weekend.
So: Maybe there has been (soon-to-be-announced) progress in the criminal investigation into the First Engorger - and the NYT wants to get out in front of it, or maybe the NYT has decided its reputation can get no lower, and having reached its nadir, the time has come to start building back some credibility for the 2022 races. Not that it will change anybody's mind.
Another possibility - TPTB have decided it is time for Joe to go. The NYSlimes was tasked with the opening salve.
Joe should go. Yes but not first. Pelosi first and one minute later Harris and then Joe. They need to resign. At this point the only thing that will save this country is for those three to resign. Secretly for a week or two until suitable replacements can be lined up and in place. They won't of course, so the second best option is a serious late night meeting between the three of them and sane people in power where they are "nudged" into doing the right thing.
Of course none of this will happen so we will suffer a far worse fate than any in our 250 year history.
Stith's a tad late to the game. Fatherlessness has created an entire generation of selfish, ungrateful Millennial pinkos, and they're going to be running the country soon.
Probably over a million lives could have been saved https://ninetymilesfromtyranny.blogspot.com/2022/03/the-90-miles-mystery-video-nyctophilia_01136304263.html If we had paid attention to the science.
This week @CDCgov removed a total of 30,000 Covid deaths from the dashboard, reducing pediatric deaths by 24%. In small print at the bottom they cited a “coding error” as the reason for the incorrectly inflated numbers.
** Correction with updated numbers. The CDC may have removed closer to 70k deaths. Difficult to tell exacts as prior data has been removed.
That simply can't be. They must be ignorant about statistics.
Did you see the mRNA study from Sweden? Looks like the mRNA vaccines alter your DNA. But I don't believe it. The Science would never lie to us. The Science said no way, no how, will the mRNA vaccines alter your DNA. They wouldn't lie to us, would they?
Neither your statement nor Zachinoff's is true. Reading studies and understanding statistics is not hard, but it does take attention and most of all, it takes looking at the numbers for what they actually say, not what you wish they would say. 30K pediatric deaths have not been removed from the total. This describes a tangential, highly temporary incident. Gateway Pundit is an increasingly dishonest broker on covid statistics. I used to like the site.
"Alter your DNA" is not what the Swedish studies show. That is a huge overread and overreach. False dichotomies about imaginary enemies called "The Science" do not change that. You would not accept such reasoning from an opponent for five seconds. So don't use it yourself.
Yes, that is what you just said. I was pretty good on those sections on the SAT. I have had a reputation to protect these last two years and have been very cautious about committing one way of the other until someone produced good numbers. I have not seen that at MF in the last year.
The part about The Science is sort of tongue in cheek. A light hearted joke. I happen to agree with Dennis Prager that The Science says, has replaced, thus sayeth the Lord. I didn't follow his link. Just making a comment. Maybe you think that everything the CDC and Government in general is all above the board? They never lie to us, or simply make up/ suppress information? Can we meet halfway on anything?
Yes, you are correct. Alter, was not the best word choice. However, I read the article about 15 days ago, from the Epoch Times (learning that they are not the best source for information), and now that I searched again, and read from a different source, what the Epoch Times article claimed and what I read today, are not the same. Mea Culpa.
The Hunter Biden laptop story, is a perfect example of the lies and distortion coming from the media and government.
One thing AVI is good at is the ad hominem.
Never does he actually dispute or interpret the figures posted at the CDC site itself but instead continues to tell everyone here that he "knows" better. Just "knows" something only he can understand but often falls short of a real explanation.
Kinda like the Quibble-DickZ.
Assistant Village Idiot: "Alter your DNA" is not what the Swedish studies show.
There are several problems with the paper, such as they were working with carcinoma cells, not normal human cells. But even taking the study at face value, they specifically state, "At this stage, we do not know if DNA reverse transcribed from BNT162b2 is integrated into the cell genome.”
Aldén et al., Intracellular Reverse Transcription of Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 In Vitro in Human Liver Cell Line, Current Issues in Molecular Biology 2022.
Assistant Village Idiot: 30K pediatric deaths have not been removed from the total.
That number is far above the number of pediatric deaths due to COVID ever reported, so fails the reasonableness test. The CDC reduced the number of such deaths by 416 to 1,341.
Something very strange and complex has happened. It would take a book to explain and expose it all. But briefly, a disease was created and unleashed on the world possibly intentionally but most certainly because of evil intentions. A large well known group of politicians, let's call them Democrats although it has be 60 years or more since they had any right to call themselves that, used that disease to massively steal an election. In the process while creating the necessary diversions and denying the constitution a large pharmaceutical company made a mostly ineffective vaccine to treat the disease and after everyone's hands were crossed with silver the politicians forced this vaccine on their citizens and in the process killed and harmed many of them and, oh yeah, made billion$. But luckily a life saving medicine already commonly used was found to prevent death and other harm from this new disease. But unluckily that medicine would have kept billionaires from making billions more and handing out money to politicians so it had to be repressed. But all of this had to be covered up as people were exposing various lies and conspiracies. But luckily the media and the high tech companies were only too glad to silence anyone who questioned "the science". But the people still found out and threatened to revolt, so suddenly the disease require that everyone stay home and go bankrupt or take a life threatening vaccine. But still the serfs were angry and suddenly a war breaks out and for awhile people's attention was diverted from the shenanigans... but still that nagging feeling that grandma didn't need to die or little Johnny shouldn't have had a heart attack after getting the vax so suddenly the war threat becomes nuclear and all (except a few cooler heads) in DC beat the drums of war.
There is so much more to this story but soon it will all come out, it always does. And people will discover that grandma and little Johnny were killed by heartless politicians and mom and dad were bankrupted to keep the scam going and a lot of people will be angry, maybe angry enough to... to, well to try to get revenge. I would not want to be one of those politicians or co-conspiritors then.
re Food for the Table, Not for the Gas Tank. With prices skyrocketing, it’s time for Washington to suspend—and ultimately repeal—the Renewable Fuel Standard.
He is right, but there is no political will to upset the status quo.
Biofuels have been around for many years and - here in Canada - there was one company who proudly advertised same. I never went there; agreed with a friend that not going to fill my car's gas tank with someone else's food. Because that's what the biofuels did: move corn (a staple in Mexico and elsewhere) from a food crop to a (?subsidized) component of gasoline and - incidentally - raise prices so a basic food staple became less affordable.
