    Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand

    Evil men, highway robbers, thieves, and tyrants have been with us from the beginning of time and will, I suppose, be with us to the end. Francisco d'Anconia's speech (quoted above) is what turned my wife instantly from liberalism's grasp. She literally sat up in bed after reading it and insisted on re-reading out loud it to me. Ahhh...the unforgettable taste of the red pill. Alas, there are few who listen to reason and are willing to change their mind when confronted with new facts and ideas. Of course it is no surprise looking back...she has lifted with me for years.

    The typical Socialist is not, as tremulous old ladies
    imagine, a ferocious-looking working man with greasy overalls and a raucous
    voice. He is either a youthful snob-Bolshevik who in five years' time will
    quite probably have made a wealthy marriage and been converted to Roman
    Catholicism; or, still more typically, a prim little man with a white-
    collar job, usually a secret teetotaller and often with vegetarian
    leanings, with a history of Nonconformity behind him, and, above all, with
    a social position which he has no intention of forfeiting. This last type
    is surprisingly common in Socialist parties of every shade; it has perhaps
    been taken over en bloc from. the old Liberal Party. In addition to this
    there is the horrible--the really disquieting--prevalence of cranks
    wherever Socialists are gathered together. One sometimes gets the
    impression that the mere words 'Socialism' and 'Communism' draw towards
    them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer,
    sex-maniac, Quaker, 'Nature Cure' quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.

    Antifa has served its purpose and will be dismantled / defunded under Biden. Remember "Code Pink magically disappeared once Obama took office.

    Or...are Patriots now in control, and the weaponized virus / antifa finally being turned "off"?

    Wednesday will be a historic day...either way.
    This is so precious. The liberal bullshit is strong in my neighborhood and I think i might have to troll a bit on NextDoor to commemorate this special moment.

    For the science orientated guys here, what's your thoughts on Kevin Mckernans view on masks?

    Masks Masquerading as ScienceTM.

    I spent a good part of my career engineering emulsion PCR and Nebulization equipment for DNA and RNA shearing. I have a very different view on this topic and have mostly stayed out of the debate as it's now cultish.

    I certainly hope that the courts make the principled decision and award all these businesses some form of compensation, but the events of the past 9 months have made me doubtful that this is what will happen.

    Maybe this is why many people hate Amazon with a passion. The Devil gets paid eventually. It sounds like youíll know that Bezos is about to collect on your soul when Amazon accuses you of selling counterfeit goods and demands you provide proof of authenticity by disclosing your supply chain and cost structure to them.
    It is working out for me. In my case, I have no worries that Amazon is the Devil. I'm not a reseller, nor an I outsourcing the making of my product, I am the entirety of my business. If Amazon wants to come for me, fine, they'll need to get in line. I'm already being copied on both Amazon and Etsy, I've even had my photos pirated by other people. If someone wants to copy my designs and sell it for half of what I'm selling it for, I can't really do anything about it. I either lower my prices to stay competitive or I find a new product to make and sell. To that end, I have a long list of products that I know will sell well, but don't, because I don't need to and trying to keep up with a large selection is too inefficient. (Time, Effort, Return) being my business motto.

    Unless the government steps in and provides Amazon special protections, then Amazon is not going to become a monopoly. There is just too many ways to sell a product and there are always going to be people that will sell for less.

    it's absolutely amazing that you can show this type of analysis to people all day, and they still prefer to be scared. It's like everyone is engaged in a planet-wide role-playing game where points are awarded for hysteria.

    This is how Lenin used Pavlov's dog theory to make the masses his bitches.

    Joshua Philipp
    Just as Pavlovís dog was taught to associate the reward of food with the sound of a bell, the sad victims of political conditioning are brainwashed through the subversion of their interpretations of symbols. They are conditioned to associate their emotions with political issues.
