I know their arguments. You know very well that the scientific community does not agree with those poorly argued assessments. Those few selfish assholes have failed to provide scientific evidencs, have failed the peer reviews, and are outnumbered by thousands of professional scientists and virologists. The bigger question is: why do people like you want so much to support the lies that are pushed by GOP special interest groups? They are fucking you over and the 99%. There is no controversy here. Anyone can appreciate the differences between facts and lies.

Trump and the GOP are the ones who rolled out the vaccine first.

Have you forgotten the 1st half of 2020? He was the main person, among others in the GOP, calling COVID a hoax and spreading misinformation about it for months. The vaccine program was unrelated to him or the GOP.

Nothing would be healthier for our society than a civil war.

mRNA vaccines are meant to be safer, by helping one build immunity to a virus without injecting an minor example strain of the virus. Thus the vaccine does not technically infect the patient. One benefit is that the exact strains do not have to be known or injected in order to develop mRNA resistence (though it's response to known strains is important). Part of the problem is that some form of a strain of the virus should be present in order for the mRNA reaction to work. Thus a second vaccine must be injected within the 3-6 month period after the first vaccine, in order to respond to any potential strain. Both vaccines must also be injected during the height of a virus epidemic or pandemic, in order to respond to potential strains. The key purpose of this type of vaccine is to help build immunity and the potential for immunity in the event of infection, so that the patient's response is as healthy as possible. Unvaccinated patients have been the higher percentage of COVID patients in hospitals, and at risk of death. During the period of the greatest impact of the pandemic - 24 months in this case - those who remained unvaccinated have also been more likely to pass it onto others. Taking the vaccine has always been a means of civic responsibility, ethics, and thoughtfulness, while also important for one's health (problems continue also after one has had COVID). Anti-vaxxers have endangered themselves and others, while also prolonging COVID. Trump politics converted fears like vaccine hesitancy (among other fears) to political weapons, meant to cause the 99% to harm itself. The only ones to benefit were the 1%, temporarly. Now everyone is poorer because of this kind of politics, even if the .001% made a fortune initially. And there is a large portion of GOP voters who now believe the lies they've been told by the GOP. This is similar to building a civil social war, with the help of lies. It's the only way the GOP can stay in power. Continued anti-democratic politics have hurt the 99% in a way that - were they to examine the truth - they would never vote GOP.

Vaccinating is a flawed science...

Virology is actually better science because the so-called test groups are in the billions. When extremely rare problems arrise, they are corrected with improved vaccines. Vaccines are also developed to respond to a broader range of strains on a regular basis.

It's not technically a medical procedure to get a vaccine. If you're in a civilized country, you've probably received a polio vaccine. Getting or spreading polio, especially in a hospital would be tragic. The same is true for Covid, where older people with limited immunity in the hospital could seriously suffer and/or die from it. It's inexcusable, by any standard. Children normally get a number of these vaccines:

• diphtheria (D)(external link opens in a new window / tab)

• tetanus (T)

• pertussis (whooping cough, P)

• polio (IPV)(external link opens in a new window / tab)

• haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)

• hepatitis B

• measles

• mumps

• rubella

• meningococcal disease (groups A, C, W and Y)

• meningococcal disease (group B)

• pneumococcal infection (PCV)

• human papillomavirus (HPV)

• rotavirus(external link opens in a new window / tab)

Parents of these children aren't protesting these vaccines for political purposes, nor should they worry about the COVID vaccine, which has been tested on billions of people. That said, children in most places are not required to take the COVID vaccine, but you see my point.

If you look at the history of polio and virology, you'll see that numerous people suffered from it until the time when most people were vaccinated. And where there was vaccine hesitancy, many continued to suffer from polio. It's that simple. It's always been unethical not to be vaccinated.

Lawyers for Noah’s Ark theme park are suing its insurance company for rain damage

By Eli Rosenberg and Karen Heller

May 25, 2019 at 8:57 a.m. EDT

It is one of the world’s classic stories.

A gigantic ark is built with the help of a higher power, a symbolic refuge from the depravity of humankind. It is a huge, grandiose structure constructed out of wood and is perhaps larger than anything comparable in the world. Then, heavy rains begin to fall, inundating the earth around it.

And that’s when the lawyers are called.

Genesis, this is not. This is the fate of the multimillion-dollar Noah’s Ark replica and theme park in Northern Kentucky, Ark Encounter, which is suing insurance carriers over coverage for rain-related damages to the property.

The company is seeking to recoup what it says were $1 million worth of repairs, as well as attorneys’ fees and costs, and an unspecified amount of punitive damages.

The irony has not been lost on local media organizations and observers on social media. Even the American Atheists took a shot on Twitter.

This particular chapter begins in 2017, when rains came to northern Kentucky. (They did not fall for 40 days and 40 nights.)

According to the National Weather Service, on-and-off precipitation throughout the year dropped 40-50 inches of rain that year on Williamstown, the town of 4,000 where the theme park is located — just a slight bump above average.

But a slope abutting an access road near the east side of the theme park’s ersatz ark began to fail in May and eventually was subject to a “significant landslide” that took out a barrier along the road, according to the lawsuit.

The theme park reported the property damage to its insurance companies.

Engineers it hired recommended it replace the barrier with a retaining wall with drilled concrete shafts to prevent further damage, and the theme park also repaved and repaired portions of the road, the grading and added some drainage improvements. The total cost was about $1 million, the lawsuit says.

But the insurance companies denied claims for the improvements, saying that the policy had an exclusion for correcting design deficiencies or faulty workmanship.

The two sides went back and forth, according to the lawsuit and the insurance companies did pay a “very small portion” of Ark Encounter’s claim. But the organization says they have “breached their contractual obligations, acted in bad faith, and violated Kentucky law by failing to provide further coverage.”

The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in district court in Kentucky. The Allied World Assurance Co. is named as a defendant, along with three other carriers, none of which responded to requests for comment.

The $120 million Ark Encounter, where adult tickets cost $48, was completed in 2016, with a zoo, zip lines, and a restaurant in addition to its five-story high replica ark. It was the brainchild of Ken Ham and his ministry, Answers in Genesis, which also created the Creation Museum. Ham, is a Christian fundamentalist and creationist who argues that the Bible is a historical narrative that is meant to be taken literally.

A giant ark is just the start. These creationists have a bigger plan for recruiting new believers.

He believes that dinosaurs lived alongside humans and that the biblical flood created the Grand Canyon. And he maintains that Noah labored seven decades to construct his vessel and was 600 years old when the storm surged.

He did not respond to a request for comment sent to Ark Encounter spokeswoman Melany Ethridge.

“The lawsuit speaks for itself,” read a statement she distributed on behalf of the park. “Ark Encounter guests have been unaffected by the work being done at the access road. Hours of operation were never affected.”

The theme park was met with no small amount of controversy when it opened, focused mainly on its sources of funding, including the $62 million in junk bonds that were floated by the town of Williamstown.

The ACLU and other groups charged that Answers in Genesis should have not been eligible for state and local subsidies because of its discriminatory hiring practices.

As a condition of employment, the museum and ark staff of 900, including 350 seasonal workers, must sign a statement of faith rejecting evolution and declaring that they regularly attend church and view homosexuality as a sin.

The story of Noah’s Ark is found in the Old Testament, in Genesis. It tells of a God who wipes every creature off the face of the earth with a flood for their evil, except for Noah and the animals he brings aboard.

“The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth,” one translation of the Bible notes in the passage explaining the God’s motivation for the flood.

Its not about the big boogeyman Jesus, my dude.

Indeed it's not, but the plaintiff sued because of 'religious discrimination', winning $10m because there is a STUPID state law against religious discrimination that these so-called medical professionals (who should not be medical professionals) claimed was the reason for their vaccine hesitancy and subsequent firing. But what this is really about is the politicization of science, which makes about as much sense as tits on a turtle. Vaccine hesitancy is only a minor part of the massive GOP Christo-fascist retard PR campaign of fear.

Seems you've not understood what happens in theocracies. Those poor sobs are slaves to whatever religious abuses the masters want to enforce. Look up theocracies.

The OPPOSITE of that slavery is known as "the American Experiment", drafted in the 1760s. That experiment is a civil society built on a representative democracy (not 100% democracy, so don't bitch about that part) wherein there is a separation of church and state. This experment fails with each legal decision to ENSLAVE the 99% in RELIGIOUS DOGMA. UNVACCINATED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ARE ENDANGERING THE LIVES AND WELLBEING OF PATIENTS. It's that simple. If they don't want to make patients suffer and potentially die AND they don't want a HARMLESS vaccine because JESUS somehow told them not to, then they can GET ANOTHER FUCKING JOB!

A terrible precedent. This would support anyone who wanted to use any religious argument in order to avoid laws that should apply to everyone. It's a conflation of church and state. Unvaccinated medical professionals would have put the lives of patients in danger. It's that simple. I hope the NorthShore University HealthSystem will appeal. The Supreme Court would however support any American Taliban proposal. Any anti-vaxxer here on Saidit who think's this was a good legal decision should also think about how this can backfire, and could be easily abused in due course.

Very interesting points. The unfortunate truth is in the details, however. For example, I supported Bernie almost to the point of campaigning for him, but knew also that - though he energized the left (which we needed) - he also lacked political realism and did not understand the importance of practical political deal-making or economics. He was absolutely right about what needed to be done, but did not show a practical method for achieving it. Krugman was absolutely correct on points like that.

The US Healthcare System - from the point of view of an economist - is broken. It is indeed too expensive for for everyone, in and out of the system, as we all know. And there is no economic solution to it. The solution will have to be political, or a nationalization of healcare. The first good step in that direction was Obamacare, though this led insurance companies to raise their rates. It put millions of people in the system who previously had no access. Economically that was difficult. There is much more to say about this, but Krugman is right about the economic problems of the very expensive system. The 99% cannot afford it, even with their deductables, and there is no way in which this can be fixed economically. Other methods must be considered.

He did not say explicitly that we don't need a living wage. (He's also way too liberal to ever argue that.) He argues that the living wage is a moral necessity. He's right that "what the living wage is really about is not living standards, or even economics, but morality." This again is an economists' argument. If for example you are paid $15 an hour because this is deemed a living wage, keep in ming that you will still not have a decent standard of living in most regions of the US, and that this so-called living wage is therefore not really tied to a good stanradd of living. The so-called living wage of $15 is nonetheless important for moral reasons. To arrange a reasonable standard of living will require additional financial support: partner also works, rent a small apartment, buy a cheap car, etc. etc.

I think he's a very good economist. He's also known for gloom and doom forecasts, so his latest assessment is unusual for him. It makes sense. Per our earlier comments, consider the number of available jobs per unemployed person. During a recession, the number of available jobs is much much lower. Moreover, inflation is indeed transitory in a wealthy country like the US, as it's a form of market correction, combined with Fed restrictions. The 'transition' takes much longer in poorer countries.

Here are the facts:

"Discretionary" spending would have given the so-called masters options to manipulate the money.

"Mandatory" spending requires that all of the money go directly to the veterans.

Repuglican traitors voted against the latter. Those voting against the bill previously profited from those soldiers' sacrifices and then abandoned them.

It was explained to you that "mandatory" spending is NOT a significant change to the bill. The bill should be legitimate, rather than political posturing, the latter obviously of interest to the GOP, rather than legitimate support for veterans.

Unless I've missed something, there were approximately 2 jobs per unemployed person in Q1. By contrast, there was only one job opening per unemployed person in June 2021. So it seems the report would like to see a return to this high number of 2 jobs/person of Q1 ('down to' .5). But I could be wrong.

But that's the article. In which of the 4 attached pages is the evidence located? I am trying to determine if the article is misleading or if this is genuinely something one can read in a formal mid-year review that is sent to investors.

He's not promoting anything.

It's just a comment by him.

Do you support the GOP decision not to pass this important bill for veterans, epecially when it's not changed from the time when it initially passed?

I hope veterans remember this and the many other bills the GOP will not allow to pass. Consistent GOP votes against the needs of the 99% deserve so much more attention.

What he's saying, as well as what happend with the veterans healthcare bill, might also be of interest.

Very interesting. I read through the 4 pages and see mainly an obsession with the Fed and energy consumption, which of course are leading factors, though there is so much more (eg. the 2/3rds of the economy supported by purchases, which dwindle because of low pay, small business losses, and lost jobs). These portions of the report seem to be rather myopic, even if all such reports have start with those basic indicators.

I seem to have missed the 'we hope..' statement. On which page is that noted?

Despite all the arm-twisting from govt, employers, and media, only 48% of eligible Americans have gotten boosted. The majority—over 100 million—have refused. Another 107 million remain unvaccinated. So more than 207 million Americans, about two thirds of the total population, are now “anti-vaxxers.” by Orangutan in politics

A legit conspiracy concern is that mRNA vaccines have been in development since the early 2000s and the companies investing in that research began to make a prfit in 2020. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MRNA_vaccine

Yes - and it's ironic when one considers how much Brits winge about everything. At the end of the day they get on with it, so to speak. Hence they understand irony much better than the Americans.

It's not a simple matter. $ Billions spent by authoritarian propaganda campaigns in recent years are swaying public opinion about healthcare in various countries, especially where healthcare services have been sold to private corporations that put profits before people. In the US this latter problem is not new, but in other countries national funding for healthcare continues to be a problem, especially after COVID. It's part of a lengthy discussion. If we focus on COVID as the present topic: vaccine distribution highlighted the impressive rate at which healthcare distribution worked for billions of people. In many countries heathcare is however very expensive and difficult to arrange, leading to the usual concerns by people about it's administration and overhead costs. No one doubts medical science, unless they are really dumb. What they doubt is the expensive administration and politicization of healthcare as a for-profit industry.

I don't think any of this changes what I noted. And if you're in the UK, you've been able to avoid much of the anti-vax insanity, which is mainly a political US PR Psyop, to drum up voters for Republicans. In the UK there's only been a few small protests. The attitude in the UK is generally to go on with the conventional wisdom - stiff upper lip - and all that.

(Vaccines help build immunity, thereby reducing one's potential to suffer from the virus and spread it. You're agreeing with fallacious propaganda that billions of people understand to be wrong. This is such as old topic. )

Read it. It was an unbiased survey by the Global Health Service Monitor of 20,000 adults online. You don't have a better, more trustworthy survey than that.

You folks are on the way out.

You don't know who you're addressing.

It's great to be on Saidit, where the 20 users here are so much smarter than the millions of scientists and billions of people who think they understand how vaccines put an end to serious COVID illnesses.
