GOP Overtly Turned Against the Will of the People

In actively trying to subvert the results of the election, the GOP has shown unapologetically that aside from power, what they want above all else is the ability to tax the American people without actually having to represent them. ... a dangerous…Continue

A good read, & much of it is very obvious.

Thanks for posting, Doone. Scary and true.

Are the USA and UK turning into failed countries - read this if you want to see the reasons it may be true.   https://eand.co/america-and-britain-are-teaching-the-world-how-soci...

Stephen, don't tell me that you need it LOL! And I am already gay!

Comment was by Grinning Cat on February 27, 2021 at 5:59pm

About the COVID vaccine supposedly turning you gay, a wingnut rabbi and a wingnut ayatollah agree, so it must be true! :)

(And if fewer people are inclined to make babies, that could be a net positive for the world! Massive fossil fuel use and the resulting global warming / climate destabilization and its effects all ultimately come from, among other things, having so many human beings on this finite planet.)

Though if it turned people bisexual or pansexual, I wouldn't argue with the newly expanded possibilities for great relationships and good sex!

 

If the vaccine turns you atheist, then Marshall Brain outlines, towards the end of "Why Won't God Heal Amputees?", how churches might play a positive role in the resulting new world:

"A thriving church community can be an amazing thing. But it is the people who make that happen, not any imaginary being. Once the imaginary being is gone, churches continue to exist as communities of people who enjoy each others' company, who help one another in times of need, and who focus on goodness and good deeds for the benefit of society as a whole." "...many churches have an outreach component. When there is a disaster, either in the community or somewhere else in the world, the church members often will band together to help in some way." "What's not to like about that?"

Chris. Id take that vaccine lol

Comment was by Mrs.B on February 27, 2021 at 1:53pm

I heard it turns people gay.

Comment was by Chris B on February 27, 2021 at 11:59am

Here we have a protestant leader who can tell you that you turn ATHEIST from the vaccine....

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on February 27, 2021 at 11:34am

Chris B I've come across in my neighbourhood some people who believe in the conspiracy that bill Gates is behind the virus and one of my neighbours believe that it was created to kill all Muslims. The last one was told to me personally only yesterday.

It's surprising how quickly these conspiracies take hold. 

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on February 27, 2021 at 11:25am

Chris B. To my mind, the real tests for a vaccine are tests done in real-time and the Scottish and Israeli tests show the High efficacy of both the Oxford and Pfizer jabs. Politicians being careful is one thing but I believe Macron and Merkel have been playing fast and loose with the roll-out.
