Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Spouts His Insane Anti-Vaxxer Conspiracy Theory in Measles Hot Zone by Orangutan in conspiracy

[–]Tom_Bombadil 8 insightful - 2 funny8 insightful - 1 funny9 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

The Pacific Northwest is in the grips of a measles outbreak that has already sickened 52 people in Washington and four in Oregon, nearly all of them children. Health officials say the spread of the highly contagious disease—which had been all but eradicated in the United States—is being fueled by parents, sometimes with the approval of their doctors, who refuse to immunize their children.

Measles is not a deadly disease. It's very similar to chicken pox. Do you know of anyone who has died of chickenpox? Me either.

It actually boosts your immune system for your entire lifespan. I would have no problem contracting measles of given the chance.

Having a 2 week fever would suck. But with plenty of vitamin A, I would be fine and immune boosted for life.

Access to information should be a human right (IMHO).

Including subs that aren't subscribed to is a great way to broaden proles horizons. It's like a news paper. You don't have to read any article, but you can't know what you're missing without a headline.

Censorship by omission is the most common method of spreading info. Reddit is guilty of this heinous crime. This should be discouraged.

I like the current system, but maybe it is time for a change.

I would propose some TBD ratio similar to:

  • Subscribed 67%
  • World news / Current Events 13%
  • TIL/Science/ 20%
  • Conspiracy 5%.

I understand the desire for total immersion in ones interests. However, this can lead to group-think and isolationism. This should be discouraged.

Academic and intellectual communitarianism should be encouraged. Expand the communities horizons. They are plenty of fascinating wonders that we'll never experienced unless other enlightened individuals make the effort to share them, and there's a platform for exposure.

What do you folks think???

Does anyone else have any suggestions. :-)

They also train American police officers alongside the IDF.
IIRC, they practice training against the Palestinian populace.

This training is then brought back to the US, and used against the American public.

I feel like this supports the American economic eugenics theory. Low income parents are disadvantaged, and their children suffer from a reduction in breastfeeding.

More Venezuela aid arrives in Colombia amid uncertainty over distribution by magnora7 in WorldNews

[–]Tom_Bombadil 3 insightful - 3 funny3 insightful - 2 funny4 insightful - 3 funny -  (0 children)

A conversation between two American pilots in Colombia:

Pilot 1: "Well, we've removed the last of the double stacked pallets of aid that is supposedly intended for use in Venezuela."

Pilot 2: "Yep. This giant military cargo plane is finally empty of all of its humanitarian contents.".

Pilot 1:. "it seems like wasteful to fly all of these empty military cargo aircraft back to the states in this empty condition."

Pilot 2:. "I completely agree... If only there were some high-value commodity that Americans want, which was almost exclusively produced in Colombia. It would be exceedingly convenient to return cargo laden aircraft that were full of a hypothetical substance to our handlers..."

Poor 2: "Unfortunately, such a substance does not exist, because if it did then, we'd probably fill up each and every plane in service to the American public. But, there's nothing for it. A pity...."

Pilot 2: "Yep."

<Both pilots aggressively pick at their nostrils.>

Then I kick those bridges in half, and use them as diving boards.

This isn't a story about success.

On the day JFK was killed, a man named George H. W. Bush was in Houston, TX overseeing the operation on behalf of the CIA. To obscure his true location, he called in a fake tip to the FBI that same afternoon from "Tyler, TX". Classic spycraft. Here's the memo from the phone call. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

Castro nationalized the Bush oil platforms.
Kennedy refused to escalate the cold war, and invade Cuba.

This may be a photo that captured "Poppy" on that day..

I wonder if Poppy, was a reference to the Bush CIA drug trade in heroin; rather than that of a father figure. Hidden in plain sight.

TBD = To Be Determined; meaning I haven't bothered to work out what I would regard as optimal %s for content. Also, who's to say what"optimal" is.

So their page would be X % their subscriptions, and some % of other material exposure. Preferably excluding that MartolioTimberschnoop.

However, I would prefer SaidIt discourage the group-think disasters that Reddit and Voat have been turned into. Remaining a "moderate" platform will probably require some degree of intentionally biasing certain subs and topics, etc.. Otherwise, some groups will feel alienated and leave prematurely. Creating an echo chamber.

Delousing chemical!? What?

That can't be possible, because zyclon B (HCN) was version 2 of a extermination chemical; specifically designed by the Nazis for mass extermination.

It couldn't possibly have been a delousing chemical, because that would undermine part the Holocaust narrative, which must be 100% accepted as factual.

This situation feels like a Problem Solution Reaction PsyOp.

In this case, they took an existing problem and exploited it with false solutions.

Your % system is a PERFECT compromise between alienation and exposure. Maybe even make that percentage a preference.

As intended. And good idea.

Edit: Or, better still, let people add a "weight" to their subscribed list (a multiplier of the points score when ordering) where unsubscribed is 1 and subscribed is 5-by-default or something. Much harder to implement, but would be better.

Also, a great suggestion.

Edit: Also, no one noticed how the conspiracy put the total at 105% (it's a conspiracy ;-).
