    I dunno. Maybe it's my browser. I'll try again on my laptop, which has a morally and culturally superior Ukrainian keyboard.
    Elon Musk and Kanye are both disgusting, sad humans, and I think your perspective on the topic of Israel and free speech is infected with a disturbing amount of paranoia...
    BUT
    I agree completely that Israel and the ADL are actively working to conflate criticism of Israel with anti-semitism, and to suppress any criticism of Israel's policies or behavior, which could reasonably be described as genocidal. I'm somewhat disturbed to find myself agreeing with someone who thinks that Kanye is anything other than an egotistical lunatic and that Jews (writ large) are pulling the levers of the world, but here we are.
    Oh, right.
    What was I thinking; I am sure it is incredibly common and not unusual at all for someone to stop posting here for 14 years, then suddenly return sounding like a CNN anchor or Sean Hannity

    You sound just like a bot or one of the keyboard warriors at Eglin Airforce Base; your statements are almost entirely personal attacks, appeal to authority logical fallacies or vague generalities.
    Tell us specifically why you are defaming Elon Musk.

    There are definitely people here who seem oddly concerned with making sure the Overton Window doesn't shift too far on certain topics.

    I kinda wish Barry was posting more. He was always my favorite dead horse to beat.

Numerous kids that were in decent shape prior to lockdowns ended up 50-90lbs heavier - sloppy as hell heavier. If I noticed in teen ATHLETES, what is it like for the non-athletic or in shape humans?
    Your thoughts reminded me of something I thought about over a year ago, but have completely neglected despite its importance. Selective amnesia from the exhaustion of staring evil in the face every day, perhaps.

    Let's say COVID was extremely deadly to the over sixty crowd, but mostly harmless to children and young adults. Essentially reality, but even more spiteful towards boomers. Let's also say the vaxx wasn't disproportionately dangerous to young men. Even in this situation, where the boomers are dropping like flies, how do you justify risking the maiming and killing young children on a brand new, unproven technology to save the elderly? No civilization sacrifices its children for its elderly. In fact it is just the opposite. Honor demands it. (This applies not only to the vaxx, but to all the lockdown psychological warfare that directly impacted children.)

    They're really doing all the evil shit in plain sight. That is what I want people to see. But like I always say, the spells are strong.

    Recently, Dave Rowe very respectfully accused me of being utterly confident in my position. He was absolutely correct. Until someone can prove to me why I am wrong, I will fight for my position vigorously, as if it were most certainly true. Prove me wrong, and I will gladly change my position on anything. I'm too autistic to defy logic.

    But we don't even need logic to know the mainstream narrative is false. It's obvious. They did it right in front our faces. Any theory I have to offer will almost certainly have higher probability of truth than the mainstream narrative, since it only has to be greater than zero.

    You cannot expect certainty in war. Hitler was too rash because those before him were too timid.

    You no doubt know the purpose of forum sliding and trolls is to detract from the discussion, you should know better than to respond to him. He can only break up discussions if you respond to them.

    Tucker Carlson on Dave Smith's show

    This is such a great conversation. I highly recommend everyone listen to the entire thing.

    Tucker: "There are three things about the war that I think... you know, I've always had kind of conventional views about everything. I'm hardly radical or like a true freethinker, anything like that, but there are three questions no one's ever answered, in my mind.

    One - So Churchill committed his country, and then we followed to war in Europe, in defense of Poland. Fine, okay. That was his view. But then he handed Poland over to Stalin! We're going to war. We're going to wreck our country. We're gonna, you know, join this war where tens of millions will die. Because the territorial integrity, the sovereignty of Poland is that important! And then you just blithely hand it over to Joseph Stalin? Huh? Like can someone explain that to me?

    Second, it's clear there was foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor. It's... it's just absolutely clear. It's like not in dispute. The Senate actually had an inquiry into it during the war, and kind of concluded that yeah we sort of knew, and then it was buried because there was a war on. What was that? Like, why aren't we talking about that?

    And the third thing that I've never gotten over is that the war kind of ended American culture, and Western culture. Like we haven't produced meaningful art at scale since 1945. Like everything we produced in architecture, visual arts, music... music is a little different. I think we have created innovative music in that time. But... but certainly in the visual arts and architecture it's just been pure shit, since 1945. Really 1945, like it... at... something changed at a very basic level in Western culture. And like what is that? I thought we won. Like why would it destroy our creative impulse? But it did. And why is there not a serious inquiry into that? I don't... I mean it, I don't understand!"
    Tucker is starting to sound a lot like me. And if he doesn't already, he will understand.

    Leo Hohmann: FBI Tells Newsweek that Trump Supporters are Enemies of the State and Must be Secretly Tracked, Monitored, Investigated

    Put the primary subject of this article aside for a second. The rhetoric perfectly illustrates what a retarded position conservatives put themselves in. I've talked about this several times, but this example is just too perfect:

    As a member of the conservative movement in America, I can tell you that it is the most unorganized, disjointed and fragmented movement in the country. It is not in any way monolithic and as such poses no threat to the government or anyone else.
    This is your "leave us alone" argument? Why the fuck does your movement even exist, you absolute fucking retard? Why are you even protecting something so pathetic and ineffective? The entire thrust of your retarded fucking article is that the government should leave us alone because we're so gentle, meek, and pathetic?

    Well, you absolute fucking retard, have you thought that maybe that's the fucking problem? So, at your weakest and most pathetic, the big bad FBI comes and harasses you. And your response is to highlight how weak and pathetic you are to make them go away?

    And if that isn't enough rhetorical virtuosity for one article, I really love the photo content. "Oh! Oh! Maybe if I put a picture of some Nazis next to Roger Stone being arrested, that will do the trick! They'll be so embarrassed that I'm comparing them to the mean and evil Nazis that surely everyone will be convinced to leave us alone!"

    My God, the stupidity is sometimes just too much for me to bear.

    Here's the link to the Newsweek article: Exclusive: Donald Trump Followers Targeted by FBI as 2024 Election Nears

    Note the lovely red background inserted into the first photo. This country cannot survive it's own media.

    I don't do the mortuary/embalming work so I can't comment on that unfortunately.
