Well.. this site is dead. The silly idea that downvotes are a bad thing has prevented users from having the tools needed to adjust what they see. Se we end up with a bunch of gross crap and stupid censorship. The effort to make everyone happy in a centralized manner has predictably resulted in nobody being happy.

Per the CDC There Are Nearly Twice As Many Vaccine Related Deaths SO FAR in 2021 (1,755) Than All the Vaccine Deaths this Past Decade (994) by scrubking in politics

If you're saying child birth vaccines account for the majority of vaccines then I have to strongly disagree. This data from the previous year's flu vaccine data states that around 150 million flu vaccines were administered that year. I assume that this does account for the largest percentage though, but I don't really know. There are a lot of vaccines out there and a lot of reasons to take them. Maybe a fair guestimate is 200 million? which is comparable to the number you gave for the covid ones so far this year. All the more so since the flu is no longer envogue.

Nutz... It sure didn't take long for saidit to fall into the thin skinned morass that the current reddit suffers from (compared to the original reddit of pre-2008). I've said many times and will continue to say that the whole lack of a down vote thing along without being able to hide posts/comments below a user set level is retarded and ignores what made reddit great back in the first few years.

Yep. The same technocratic propaganda games were being played by the fascists and communists back then as well. In some countries, it was the fascists that the "winners" used for their excuse for totalitarianism and in others (like Hitler and Germany) it was the socialists and communists that were blamed. You never heard about pro-liberty groups at the time. The mainstream wasn't reporting on them.

There are a long string of assumptions you're making there that I would not. Not sure how we got from masks to Putin and a hot tub.

But if you are really curious rather than being dismissive, then you should check out https://www.corbettreport.com/corbett-report-documentaries/ .. You are asking a relatively simple question with many long answers that require a better understanding of history. This links is a good place to start.

I assume we can agree that colonialism and aristocracy once was a major force a hundred or fewer years ago? If so, then lets consider the possibility that groups of people who thrived at the top of that system didn't just walk away, but maybe they just started calling what they did by different names and continued moving their agendas in the same direction.

It would be kind of like telling you that all matter is made up of tiny "particles" and charges that you can't see and expecting you to not doubt me without you having some basic understanding of the concepts being referred to first.

yes, I agree. Holding the line against both sides of the false dichotomy that pushes fascist programs and tactics is the best way forward.

If you're an ethnic minority Conservative, you just can't win. The idea that you are not “really” black if you have certain views, and that departing from those views makes you a ‘traitor’, is straight up racism that harks back to the Victorian era. by Chipit in politics

Yea.. you're right.. just doesn't seem plausible to think that could happen accidentally.

But with that in mind.. if they wanted people to not think about it you would think they'd call it something else rather than "crown land".

Yea... I foresee the employee number "exemption" to not last very long unless there is a gross amount of public kickback regarding this. I pray this craziness doesn't spread to where I'm at. It would put me out of business. I haven't been able to afford health insurance since Obama outlawed my plan. Or at least not afford it and afford other things I value more like building my savings.

Those are some interesting ideas. I suppose they could keep the cost down by doing it in a co-op sort of way. Also, different states may be different, but where I'm at having the check written to your name opposed to the LLC name isn't a problem.

cost of the government imposed benefits

This is where I'm getting confused then. Wouldn't this mean that all businesses would have to charge for benefits when selling their product or services? My thinking was that the LLC thing would change it from freelance work to an invoiced service being sold. I'm in the graphics field and this is how I'm doing it. I'm not getting a 1099 from any of my clients anymore than McDonald's expects to get 1099's for selling you a hamburger.

now that I'm writing out my thoughts... does this mean that there is already California legislation forcing all businesses (including LLCs) to provide these benefits even if is owner operated and there are no employees?

Interesting. I was about to argue that it marked the area where a heavy amount of federally owned land started .... but I checked, and that line is a little bit farther to the west than what we're looking at in the map above.

Still a pain of course... but would that help most? Or is it not so simple in California?

We are in full agreement.

As far as the web is concerned it has been like this since the beginning in the 90's. The anti-statists create cool new communities and then the authoritarians move in and ruin it. Although I've been spending plenty of time on IRC again these last couple years and it really hasn't changed much.

Whether there are plenty of useful idiots who work for the company are completely beside the point. Its not like anyone would be crazy enough to argue that Bayer as a company has any moral base.

Here's one of the first links a basic web search brought up. Although a simple web search seems to dredge up a seemingly bottomless pit of evil.
