Like the article said, why would you have a live round on the set at all?

I'm thinking an union worker was pissed they were bringing in scabs. They might have snuck in a live round thinking this would scare them (baldwin) and that the round would go off and no one would get hurt. (Even when filming your suppose to aim beside the target)

Anyway just a theory.

Thanks for your insight. Things here in Canada are on the same level but with different items. (At least where I live.) I've been to the supermarket and there was no chicken available at all. You could find it if you shopped around though. Prices for everything have risen sharply but I'm not surprised given the amount of money we have printed.

When I posted this it was just after listening to the morning news and they heavily blamed Brexit for the driver shortage. Yet tonight the news is talking about our local problem of not having enough truck drivers and workers for our fall harvest?!? (at least they didn't try and blame it on Brexit!) Again I feel like they are heavily implying that Brexit was the cause when it seams like there is a lot more too it. (I'm not surprised.)

I completely agree with everything you said about the UN.

My hope is about drawing attention to this case first and foremost. I belive the average person would still side with the father and its a very vocal minority that makes it seam this situation is reasonable and or acceptable.

The problem is getting the average person to invest time in this case, to read and consider the facts. A human rights complaint is hard to ignore (but not impossible) and a big headline that might just grab the attention of an average Joe.

Ohio mayor tells ENTIRE school board to resign or 'face child pornography charges' after teachers gave children writing prompt to 'write a sex scene you wouldn't show your mom' by Chipit in news

I don't get why they are even given the option. If they were charged would that not generate enough pressure to make them resign?

Also I think there should be a further investigation to root out who else was involved and even cane up with this crap. I worked for my provincial board of education for 3 years. We had a whole floor of people who would work on the years curriculum for just primary. A whole floor for mid school and a whole floor for high school.

Last, this IS a form of child pornography. This puts children in a position of write a sexualized assignment or face consequences. Having to share a sexual fantasy with your grade 11 teacher or you fail the assignment is 100% child abuse.

I hope this is a wake up call for parents but I doubt we will be seeing much of this in the MSM.

This plan is stupid. Mine is so much better.

Step one: create low death rate virus and release. Cause global panic!

Step two: Release vaccine that protects against the "Omega" variant as well as the original virus. Keep Omega a secret until step three. Encourage all to get vaccine!

Step three: release the Omega variant and let all the free thinking non lemmings who saw the grand plan coming die. Thus destroying any question of if the vaccine was a good idea to take.

Step four: Everyone left will be a total obedient lemming taking whatever you offer them. At this point you can pretty much pick and choose who lives and dies. There would be ZERO left who would even question let alone resist.

Step five: Throw ruler of the world party!

Here in the province of PEI, Canada we have 92% vaccinated. We have no masks, social distancing is pretty much a memory and empty hand sanitizers sit unused. At this time we have 5 active cases all from locals who traveled and returned positive. They are force to self isolate for 2 weeks and are checked on a few times a day to ensure compliance. Things are 99% back to pre covid.


There is a local dollar store that is still in full panic mode. You need a mask, they have someone making sure you sanitize your hands when you walk in. They yell at you if you pick something up and set it back, no cash... it goes on and on.... I used to shop there 1-2 times a month but have not been in there since Christmas. Co workers from my wife's work keep us informed.

I appreciate the statement that this falls on no one person's shoulders. Not Biden, not Trump, not some other president. Anyone who tries to blame one or the other is foolish and trying to devide.

To me it's human nature.

We seem to think (in the west at least) that in the last 100 years we have gone though some radical evolution that has whiped out a million years of instict and natural evolution.

I'm never shocked when I see a governor make advances on a female subordinate, or unending fighting over a patch of desert or a lack of female construction workers or the hundreds of other examples of progression we see now on a daily basis.

I'm not saying we shouldn't try and change. However progress moves at a snail's pace.

I'm going to take a page from Joe Rogan's book and say it has to do with how we are wired to have conversations. We are ment to have them face to face, not in 255 character messages while being anonymous.

The discussions were there back then but the format was different. I remember chat boards where things could get intense but once a few hot headed people left things would simmer. Smart phones and Twitter allow that nonsense to continue 24/7 and every person gets to toss there opinion in as well... truly I belive Twitter will be the down fall of the west.

As for the shopping, Amazon is today what Walmart was 25 years ago. People want their shit and they want it a cheap as possible. No questions asked, no moral implications considered, zero fucks given. Give-me give-me give-me, cheap cheap cheap!!!

You make a good point about the flu vaccine. I didn't consider it when I wrote my post. I've never taken the flu shot and in my mind I dont see it as being on the same level as something like a hepatitis vaccine.

It seems like every year I know people who got the flu shot and still got the flu. I had the flu once in my life (2019) and was over it in 3 days.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that in my mind, from my experiences I see the flu shot as nothing more then a money grabbing placebo. TBO I can understand the elderly getting it as I'm sure there is some help the flu shot gives but for almost every one else... I just feel like it's a joke. Again, that's why I didn't consider it.

Also thanks for the civil response.

Fucking propaganda headline.... the numbers are correct. However, how many vaccines have been given from 2011 until late 2020 VS the last 3 months?

If we assume ever baby born gets a vaccine of some type ( a quick search shows about 4 million births in the USA a yesr) that's 40 million shots over the decade. The USA has given out 55 million shots in just 3 months.

I agree that these vaccines have a higher incidence rate but dont let the 994 vs 1755 number deceive and shock you. There is more to it.

(Understand there are more metrics to this. Some children dont get vaccines. Some adults would be getting them though out the decade. Also we are hyper vigilant with reporting right now. Last, anyone can post a report to this CDC site, not just doctors. My main point is this is a click bait headline displaying selected shocking stats.)

The best way to back my statement is with an example. I have an epson wf-2750 printer. I use it for my business b/c I was able to mod it and add an ink reserve. Good luck getting that pronter to work on a linux build. I spent 2 hours plus learning all about how linux printing works.

In the end I was able to get it working. However, I use this printer to print invoices in a landscape format. The drive I ended up with didn't allow you to pre config your printers default settings. It was a very basic driver. In the end I gave up on it. Having to select printer options and landscape ever time was a minor problem but on the end just too frustrating.

With windows I plug in the usb and I'm done. 30 seconds in the device manager and my printer was working perfect. When linux is there then we will have a true alternative for the masses. But now, no way...

OTOH, if the poor are nameless and FACELESS >people, the wealthy can take the course of >action that they please without being >concerned with little things like a 'conscience' >or 'morality

We don't need people to be faceless. From the genocides in Rwanda or Burma or may other places, from Saddam Hussein gassing his own to Stalin.... the British, the Roman's, the good old USA. None had or needed masks to behave the way they did.

It's the very nature of our spices. No one race or country can claim otherwise. Those that due only add fuel to the fire.

I dont belive masks will change how those with power act. I believe masks are a weak and ultimately useless symbol of an attempt to try and control and uncontrollable situation.

I've kept daily weather logs for over 20 years now as part of my business. I dont claim to be a pro on this stuff but our weather here is definitely different then from 20 years ago.

For us so far things are better. Less snow and cold and longer summers and amazing falls. Our springs are almost non existent now. We go from a shorter winter to a snow/ rain mix for like two months and then bam, in like a week it changes into hot summer.

I think your a fool if you deny that a change is happening but I do belive that the consequences are vastly overstated. I also believe that a lot of the green movements profit driven not true environmentalism to help the planet.

Very interesting.

Here in Canada we have what we call "the big 6" which are the six major banks. We also have credit unions. Due to the oversight and rules for these limited banks canada was very isolated from the impacts of the late 2000s. Most of the hard ships came from spil over from the USA. I'm not saying thing were perfect but we got though it pretty good.

I totally agree with Russia and it trying to be free from foreign power debt. In fact people should try and live as debt free as possible but that's another issue.

Do we remember when Russia invaded Crimea? How they crashed Russias currency? Guess they are free to invade whom ever they want now!

Lack of critical thinking - What is the root of this? by PencilPusher55 in AskSaidIt

[–]HiddenFox 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm going to go with then internet and more specifically social media as the main tools.

When I was young people believed whatever was on the 6 o'clock news or was written in a newspaper. Now all information for most younger people comes exclusively from online. And it's all the time, non stop, every time you pick up your phone. Combine that medium with decades of research into human psychology and you have the perfect storm for brain washing. Far more effective then in the past.

Also, I remember reading about the governments of ancient Rome. About how they understood the need to passify the "mob". Social media (an endless distraction), legalized drugs and a society based on consumption are all an effect to keep people relatively happy (even if that happiness is an illusion) and to not think too deep, to not rock the boat.

In summary I just feel we have structured our society to discourage critical thinking and social media and the internet are the perfect, next level tools to continue this process.

The root of this problem stems from the very basics of our culture. From the loss of morals, to the distruction of the nuclear family, to the complete lack of any form of shame. Its good times for everyone and dont think too deeply about it! The good times will never end! At least that's what my Facebook and Instagram are showing me...

Well said. I agree wholeheartedly that this is the biggest problem we are facing this decade.

Beyond in-person education on how to resist manipulation tactics there is little that can be done as it seems to be a war of "one upminship" between spammers and anti spammers.

Yelling online that something or someone is fake just seems to add fuel to the fire and I really feel that social media manipulation has a high degree of moving people to phyically act in the real world., thus creating a real danger when that compulsion to act is drivin by someones agenda (whether that be an individual, social movement, private company or government.)

Truly this is a great and serious problem of our age.

I often wonder with reassignment surgery if the children who receive it will one day be aloud to sue their parents and/or doctors?

While there may be an incredibly small amount of children that benefit from this, I feel most are pushed into it. Hence why I see lawsuits in the future.

In all my years I have never meet an 8 ,9 or 10 year old who thought about this stuff at all. Nor a parent who has had to deal with this. My gut tells me there is a lot of influencing going on.

That's not what I said at all. I don't want people not wearing mask to be tazed. I want people who show sheer contempt for police just doing there job to be tazed.

The police where there to break up the gathering. Knowing the French and how they act I can imagine pretty quickly how things devolved.

These people where not being stupid. They were being arrogant. They effectively were saying " Fuck the chief public health officer. Fuck the scientific data. And fuck everyone else we are going to do what we want and to hell with the consequences." It is to that attitude that I would see them tazed.

Nobody wants stupid people to be tazed.

Alright time for a rant, so I live on the east coast of Canada where 4 provinces make up ~ 2.5 million people. As of Jan 4th, 2021 we have a total of 102 active cases with 26 of those added in the last 24 hours... and that's a bad day! (All are related to travel outside the provinces.) We have a grand total of 78 deaths since day 1 of this shitstorm. (Those numbers are for all 4 provinces and like 50 of those deaths were in 1 seniors home!)

Life here is all but normal (like 80%) with the exception of having to wear a mask indoors and travel is a pain. Restaurants are full, New years was a thing and weddings and funerals can have 50 people at a time (and sometimes multiple groups of 50, space permitting) You know why life is so good here? BECAUSE PEOPLE FUCKING LISTENED! It's that simple!

Before early December we had a bubble between the 4 provinces and there was free travel, no quarantine needed until some shithead went to Toronto, came back and didn't quarantine for 2 weeks and fucked off to a CostCo full of people. Things started to spread and with Christmas gatherings on the horizon the governments pulled the plug on the bubble and we stepped up our "Covid threat level" and as before PEOPLE FUCKING LISTENED!

By the time Christmas came restrictions were already backing off and gatherings were happening again because of low new case levels. Today on the local news there is talk again of bring back the bubble next month.

If the asshats of Quebec just showed some fucking self control for a month back in September then this wouldn't have been a thing. But having been to Quebec many times I can tell you the French are assholes who will tell you to fuck off at the drop of a hat. So too bad for them, deal with the shit you made Quebec! I hoped they had to use a taser on them!

Haven't seen a beyond meat advertisement here in Canada in well over a year. I tried it once... It was beyond terrible....

What I don't get is back in the late 90s a national brand here called President's Choice made a very delicious frozen veggie burger. I loved them and would often get them because they were very tasty and cheaper then regular burgers... Then they stopped making them?!? (Or stocking them not sure which.) Not sure if they every stated up again....

"So naturally, if you are not open to the idea of a Vegan lifestyle or don't want to fall into any ethical dilemma, you can skip this article entirely." ...And that's as far as I got!

My cat knows he is not supposed to harass the Christmas tree... he looks at me but continues to inch closer, testing my resolve yet again for a moment of weakness. Finally about a foot away from the tree I let out a low, calm, disapproving "Mr.Magoo....".

He then response with a series of koos and disgruntled "cat sounds" before making eye contact with me to convey his message: "If I had another 20lbs on me I would kill you in your sleep and feast on your eyes human!"

Then, using my previous tone I respond with "leave it alone..." With the utmost reluctance possible he saunters away to the fire place, lies down and waits for a moment of distraction so he may continue his assault upon my decoration.

Beyond any doubt he knows, yet actively chooses the path of destruction. He knows right from wrong...

I won't even begin to tell you about how he treats all manner of life that is smaller then him....
