    "Chad grinned, hearing the European's promise. Sweet Jesus, he thought, this was the way the world would end. A warren of rooms, cars on the freeway winding their last way home, the dead and almost dead exchanging blows by candlelight. The Reverend had been wrong. The Deluge wasn't a wave, was it? It was blind men with axes, it was the great on their knees begging not to die at the hands of idiots; it was the itch of the irrational grown to an epidemic. He watched, and thought of how he would describe this scene to the Reverend, and for the first time in his nineteen years, his pretty head felt a spasm of pure joy.

    Wind had the world."

    I made it to 4:43 in this video. It was filled with 'right wing' assholes. Figured it was more of the same.

    This group was more appropriate for a psychological proctologist than suggesting they were of the same ilk as forum member Aianawa.

    I like few of his posts or videos. Not because I don't love the guy but, because it seems a futile effort. I cannot support a futile effort.

    Given that the people I saw in my 25% of vid watching were drinking some form of 'kool-aid' and I think are 'lost in the sauce', are you using a subtle form of insult?

    Vern posts so much woo-woo here and has been supporting that mania too so I figured that he would feel at home in a place like that.

    This is a good thread for this comment which I just heard.

    Folks are screaming about their freedoms regarding wearing masks. A question to them might be, have they read the Patriot Act? Do they really understand how the government can take away their rights? It's pretty profound. Masks are a bandaid on a bite compared to the way rights and property can legally be infringed/taken away if it's decided the country is under a terrorist threat.

    There was widespread support for the Patriot Act, especially among self-described 'support the troops!' patriots.

    I don't think people really know what they're talking about when it comes to freedom.

    It is my general impression that most people don't even know what they're talking about on account of everything else either.

    Your terse style of expressing yourself has found a peak, IMO.

    If wearing colors actually made one more patriotic.....

    I hear there are 'anti-vax' things occurring in other countries.

    The end road for some of these folks would be forcing Americans to take a bunch of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin despite not having malaria or parasites. It'll be a show of 'patriotism'. Force fed.

    Yes, but not quite to the same degree as in the US of A, and it'll mostly be in Anglo-Saxon countries ─ the UK, Canada and Australia. And that, of course, is because of (1) the common language, and (2) people like Andrew Wakefield, who is British.

    I can confirm that anti-vaxx sentiment is just as strong in many other parts of the world, it's a truly borderless phenomenon. Asians are perhaps more conformist and more likely to accept vaccine mandates. On the other hand, their trust in traditional medicine is also far stronger than that of Westerners. China has a particular problem with fake traditional remedies against Covid.
