That just means the microchips have implanted themselves with ease.

Initially, I'd say ~50% of our pilots refused the vaccine. Not sure about the rest of the base.

Humans are nowhere near as rational as you'd like to think; we decide what to believe/buy/invest time in first, then scour the sewer that is the internet to justify our "rational thoughts" second.

Genocide is depressingly common, and insanely well documented. The "Never Again!" slogan sounds nice, but ......


Red Famine: Stalin's War on Ukraine - Anne Applebaum

Mao's Great Famine: The History of China's Most Devastating Catastrophe -Frank Dikotter, a truly fascinating fellow

Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda-Romeo Dallaire, (UN force commander in Rwanda powerless to stop it)

Three genocides within living memory, or at most one generation removed. I doubt one in a hundred random people in the US would know what you were talking about. "Deniers", in this context, are just willfully ignorant; so wrapped up in cognitive dissonance they can't see the forest for the trees.

Books help.

Not too long ago....Cambodia....1975...the killing fields of the Pol Pot regime...about 1.4 million executed...another approx 1 million starved to death out of a population of 8 million. Pretty sobering. You don't even have to be a Boomer to have been alive for this....and nobody stopped it.

I highly recommend a "walkabout" to Angkor Wat and include Phnom Penh and the "killing fields"....that is ...when we reach herd immunity and we can travel again.

Im not sure how else to take the rhetorical asking for the defintion of stupid or obtuse or dumb or whatever it was... and how does whataboutism factor in ??? But like I said, it's gone, I can't even find what I originally posted now.

My friends in the medical field that have been vaccinated had the same experience.

Very interesting continuously updates graphs of Israel and their vaccination data (plus infection rates, by age group and more).

Israel has really been knocking it out of the park with the vaccines.
