Because she's a horrible person. I don't apologize for Democrats either.
I am guessing they don't want to release any information about their internal security measures (secret tunnels and/or exits, security forces and weapons, camera locations, evacuation routes and tactics, etc.) It's probably SOP to not be able to release any of that info.
Just like in 9/11 they would not release any camera footage from the Pentagon. It's not that they don't have the footage, it's a top-secret just that the footage exists. The resolution, frame rate, camera angles (+any missing camera angles), showing the existence of any hidden cameras, EVERYTHING about that is information that you do not want released to the public. Remember that you are not only releasing it to the US citizens, you are releasing it to every enemy of the US forever.

Were the uniformed people who let them in Republican or Democrat? When you get done turning yourself inside out to convolute these answers, you will have the answer to your puzzle. Republican Proud-Boy sympathizers (cops) let them in, in full view of the cameras. Occam's Razor. They were not hidden double-agent Democrats.

The death rate of everyone in the general population has increased since the beginning of 2020. Life insurers were the ones that notably remarked on this. It's not just pilots... it's a pandemic. Weird.
The last time this came up, there were a total of three pilots who had heart attacks. But they didn't say:
How large of a group it was.
How this compared to a normal group of pilots in a non-pandemic year.
How it compares to the overall population.
Sample size is important. Otherwise it is meaningless.
I have asked this info every time I see this posted, and I get nothing in response.
Would you vote for Trump in 2024? by fschmidt in AskSaidIt

That's an interesting question. I, personally, write in candidates. I don't think I've voted for a (R) or (D) candidate on the ticket in the last 40 years.
Biden was a very mediocre candidate after the disaster that was Hillary. I think Bernie would have been a decent Populist president, but all of Congress (along with the DNC) would have been pulling against him, so he would not have gotten much done.
People voted for Biden simply because he wasn't Trump. Now that Biden has shown that he's not a very good President and he puts corporate interests in front of the people (as we already knew, but it pissed off the progressive far Left)... we are setting up a stage for Republicans to do very strongly in the midterms. Would Trump win in '24? I don't think so, since we know all of his true colors, but he'd make a showing. I think Biden would have to come to the table with something new in order to pull off a definitive lead.
I think almost any other Republican (other than race-to-the-bottom Idiocracy types like Marjorie Taylor Greene) would make a stronger showing than Trump. He has pissed off the Left, the Center, and even his own on the Trump Right wing of the GOP. His own people say that he doesn't pass his own purity tests as their Fuhrer. So I do not believe he'd win a fair fight if it was held today.

This is a disingenuous argument made in bad faith.
I literally don't care if an antivaxxer doesn't take the shot. What I do care is that both of our hospitals and ICUs in my county are 100% full. This is preventing me from having access to emergency medicine. The people in ICU are 99% unvaccinated covid cases. Regular medical vists are very hard to schedule, and elective surgeries are nonexistent. And just try getting an appointment with someone like a pulmonologist or a cardiologist.
I don't care if you're vaccinated or not. But if you want to die, die at home and don't clog up the system. And don't kill my grandmother.

In terms of it being a leaky vaccine, you do have a point. And I think it got lost in the noise, being that this virus mutates fast, the whole point wasn't to eradicate the virus. We can't do that for the flu or the common cold either. The point was to keep the medical system from collapsing entirely. I saw the original report that was leaked from the Trump administration (220 pages long) analyzing all the ins and outs. If we had done nothing, 2.2 million people would now be dead. So we are doing some good, not enough.
I do think that medical insurance may start charging extra for no-vaxxers (or giving vaxxers a discount, which is the same thing). Since I don't set policy, and I really have no impact at all except for the town forum like this one... no one asked me, so my opinion doesn't really have any weight.

Also, some thoughts on healthcare. The healthcare system will sell you drugs or whatever, regardless of your state of health. But the price is another matter. They charge you more if you're a smoker. So does life insurance.
There are some nuances to this. Hear me out.
If you are riding on a motorcycle and you don't want to wear a helmet, a lot of people are thinking that you are only risking your own life and that is a risk you should be willing to take. But you don't always just die. You could become a vegetable and have to be taken care of at government's expense. You could have children, and if you become a vegetable or die, the government has to take care of them.
If you are riding in a car without a seatbelt, similarly you're not the only one at risk. Your body becomes a missile and can injure or kill other people in the car. And, again, you might not die. My grandfather was a firefighter in the 60s and 70s before seatbelt use was widespread. His fire truck was t-boned by a drunk driver going 100mph. The fire truck was hit so hard it tipped onto its side. He spent weeks in the hospital and months recuperating before he could return to his job. The drunk driver was killed, of course.
If you go to public school or university, spreading disease is one vector where your own inadvertent actions can kill or disable others. So you have to have a very long list of vaccine injections by the time you are old enough for elementary school. They are compulsory or you cannot attend. That's the part that anti-vaxxers seem to not want to engage with. If you are resistant to taking a new vaccine, what about all the other dozens of them you had by the time you were five years old? Why no protest until now? If you were truly a staunch lifelong believer, wouldn't you have already protested?
I think anti-vaxxers should have to start their own schools or homeschool their kids. Stay out of public theaters, restaurants, stores, concerts unless they are willing to submit to PCR testing before entering, at their own expense. If you want to be a burden to society, you should pay the price for your burden. Isn't the republican party the party of personal responsibility?
One further thing I want to interject into the conversation: The bible says, if you are sick, you are to stay outside of town, cover your face with a piece of cloth, and shout "unclean! unclean!" if anyone tries to approach you. Whenever I point this out to a "Christian" anti-vaxxer, crickets.

I'm no doctor, but according to Wikipedia, one of the known causes of myocarditis is covid infection. There have been millions upon millions of covid infections, and some of them were asymptomatic. So the cause and effect may be wrong here. Perhaps it isn't caused by the vaccination, but by covid. A 100x elevation in the rate of myocarditis does not sound out of line at all.

A Yellowstone supervolcano eruption would be very bad. But magma takes a long time to percolate to the surface and it hasn't been doing that. So it won't happen instantly. News and media hype and movies aside, it takes a while. Mt. St. Helens in 1980 took about 2 months to go from no activity to a big eruption... they had lots of warning. And Mt. St. Helens had been dormant only since the time of the Lewis and Clark expedition. So it wasn't really dormant at all... just on a pause. Yellowstone is many orders of magnitude bigger than that, and will take a lot more time to become active.
Also, these quakes are like 600 miles away from there and are on the rim of the Pacific subduction zone (on the edge of the North American plate). So they are very unrelated events.

It's pretty simple and I'm surprised that more stores in these areas don't do this:
You put a big bulletproof plexiglass door in the front with a turntable or drawer in it, like they have in pot shops and banks and everything.
Customer comes up to the window. They are not allowed in the store. They talk into a speaker or use a kiosk to tell the employee what they want. The employee goes and gets the crap from the store and rings it up. Customer pays for it by putting cash in the drawer or running a card through an armored card reader. If it is paid properly, the order is dropped into the slot and the customer can retrieve it.
This isn't rocket science. If shoplifters take over, make it impossible to do. If shoplifters cannot get to the products, they cannot shoplift. 2" thick plexiglass is bulletproof and cannot be pried open. A linebacker can't take it down. You would need to install some 36" tall steel columns in front of the store to prevent someone from driving a car through the door. This is pretty standard stuff.
I live in a state where pot is legal to sell in licensed shops. They are all run this way. They have a small display area out front. You tell the salesperson what you want and pay for it. They take your money into the back and return with your product. Customers are never anywhere near the product or the cash register. Nobody ever tries to rob or shoplift at a place like this. They'd just lock the "airlock" on the bulletproof lobby doors and you'd get a ride to jail.

You need to find out that you are okay with being you. Find your own meaning and place in this universe without that being external to you (not within another person).
And do the physical things. Take a shower and brush your teeth. Go for a walk in the woods. Go outside at night and look at the stars away from city lights. Go for a drive to nowhere, a place you've never been before. Take a long hike. Work with your hands in the garage. Plant something in the ground. Do a hobby. Volunteer.
People are stressed out right now and need to have a release. Everyone is going through this. The sooner you find your own internal peace, the better off you will be.
A Warning Regarding Our Collapsing Healthcare Systems: Many Healthcare Workers Are Quitting or Taking Leaves of Absence Due to the Shot/Vaccine Mandates. by salvia_d in conspiracy

Couple of points in the US. Hospital staff, particularly nurses:
Have quit because of terminal burnout / overwork
Have quit because of mask mandates
Have died because of Covid
Have had permanent injuries due to Covid, or are suffering from Long Covid symptoms and cannot work
Have left hospital nursing and went to work for a private practice or other less-stressful job.
All of this has led to the current shortage of nurses in the US. Now with fewer nurses to actually do the work, two things are happening:
Hospitals cannot fill up to the capacity of the number of beds they have. They can only fill to a certain ratio of nurses to patients. There may be unused beds in a hospital, but they cannot have a patient in them because there is no one to take care of them.
The remaining nurses are being worked harder and harder, leading to more burnout and more nurses leaving. This is a snowball effect that can only get worse as time goes on. The head of Alabama's medical system had a press conference last week and was in tears, saying "We don't know how much longer we can do this."
I've seen two postings for my area for nursing staff. They paid anywhere from $135 to $150 per hour, guaranteed at least 48 hours a week of work. No interview needed. You walk in, show them your credentials, get your paperwork filled out, and you get on the schedule. You are hired. They cannot fill all the available positions at $150 an hour.
Repeat: They cannot fill all the available positions at $150 an hour.

Also, Trump told the audience at his own rally that the vaccine was a good idea, he had gotten it, and he recommended that they get it.

So the person who got into a flame war with me over a year ago, you owe me a public apology.
Trump took the vaccine and he also told his audience to get it.

Let's look at actual data, shall we?
Hospitals in my local county:
Total Covid patients: 1037
Unvaccinated patients: 963 92.8%
Partially vaccinated patients: 40 3.8%
Fully vaccinated patients: 34 3.2%
Total admissions up 475% over baseline numbers from previous years.
I'll take my chances with the vaccine, thank you very much.

Every President since Reagan has had some involvement in Afghanistan. It's almost as if you create an instability in the region, you create terrorists. Keep swatting the hornet's nest, next time will be better.
Reagan -> CIA -> Supported Bin Laden "freedom fighters" against the Soviet Union. When we inevitably pulled out, we left the Mujahadin hanging and this caused them to become radicalized and eventually turned into Al Qaeda.
George W. Bush -> Invaded Afghanistan to go after Bin Laden. What was left of Al Qaeda radicalized further and created the Taliban.
What will be next? We shouldn't have ever been involved there at all.
If our 20 year, $2 trillion dollar involvement fell apart in a couple of weeks, there wasn't really any long term stability there, ever. This isn't Biden's fault. This isn't even Trump's fault. It isn't Obama's fault. It isn't W's fault. But they all share in it. Whoever was left holding the bag, the person who was POTUS when we inevitably pulled out, got stuck with it. Musical chairs.
You do know that Trump negotiated the pullout, right? Edit: and he also signed a deal to release 5000 suspected Taliban prisoners in exchange for not being shot at while we were pulling out. One of the people he released (suspected Taliban ex-prisoner) is now the new leader of Afghanistan.
Home Depot plans to foil shoplifters with power tools that won't work if they're stolen by thefirststone in whatever
Could be. If they do that, I'll opt out of buying them and shop somewhere else. Better yet, get a 25 year old drill instead of a new one. I have one that is as old as I am (50) and it runs great. They'll fight over it when I die. The old machines are much better quality and longer lasting than the new ones. They are designed to wear out and break, with no spare parts available.
It is said (by stores) that a lot of the problem is employee theft. I don't know if I believe that or not.

This would be relatively easy to bypass, except that the BT authorization might be located on a board along with the battery management and other "smart" (integrated) technologies. If the BT device was separate and inline, you just clip a couple of wires and put in a wire nut to hotwire it.
Much simpler just to lock the tools up in the store. If you want one, they take it to the register and you buy it.
They already do this at some locations. In my location, the actual item is located in a locker below the display. If you want it, you get an employee, he gets it out of the locker and carries it up to the register for you. You are not allowed to touch it until you paid for it.
This isn't rocket science and it does not require bluetooth. This whole premise is silly.

Biden Imports Oil from Iran After Shutting Down Keystone Pipeline and Putting US Oil Workers Out of Work by scrubking in politics
Okay, just so that we can clear the air just a little here... this is not 100% pertinent to the article, but it is pertinent to the headline.
The "US" (meaning the government) does not buy and sell oil generally. US companies drill for oil, refine it, buy it on the international market, and sell it domestically and internationally.
In general, the US sells more oil than we import. This makes us a net energy producer, which - to give credit where credit is due - began under Trump. But it could be said under Trump as well... "The US is forced to import oil! Everyone panic and blame Trump." Because we buy and sell oil internationally every single day of every year. Cherrypicking to make a clickbait headline is disingenuous at best. People need to think critically and not react based on a headline.
How many of us saidit users are there in 2021? by SambaMamba in AskSaidIt
To answer your question seriously: Not very many.
The most populous sub had 39,717 subscribers.
Many of those are bots. How many? Unknown.
I believe, without evidence, that many of those actual humans were one-time signups that are now gone. Reddit subreddit bans come in waves. Each time a big wave happens, it results in a wave of signups here out of a response of frustration and anger. Those people appear to sign up, look around a little, and then slowly trickle away when they realize that the site just really isn't that large.
You'd have to judge actual numbers on site engagement. Using the 90/9/1 rule of thumb, 90% of users are lurkers. 9% create an account and upvote and downvote and comment. 1% are content creators and submit new posts. So if you go by the front page, you have some posts that do not have any comments, just a few upvotes, and some posts make it to the front page without any upvotes at all.
So not very many active users. Using this post as an example, you have 16 comments and 16 upvotes. Using the 90/9/1 rule, around 160 people saw this post and 16 interacted with it. And this was one of the more active posts on the front page.

Papers, Please! Oregon Now Requires ‘Proof of Vaccination’ by NewsJunkie in news

That's entirely within your rights to say...
But I had Covid-19 and it gave me all kinds of problems. If you are familiar with the symptoms of long covid, I had a whole list of them, such as a pulmonary embolism and a stroke. I am otherwise healthy and have had no cardiovascular issues my whole life. I have had shortness of breath for 6 months. I wouldn't wish that on anybody. As an anecdote, I work with a guy that now has 55% lung capacity due to permanent scarring because of covid.
For what it's worth, our 12 year old made the decision himself with the insight and assistance from 2 parents and a step parent.
So it's your right if you want to not take the shot and risk getting sick. There is a meme going around today of a cop who was anti-vax and said "I have an immune system, I don't need a vaccination". He died of Covid yesterday. The irony is thick but I feel sorry for his family. There have been a bunch of these including politicians.
I'm curious if you feel this way about other vaccinations you get when you're a child. When I was in elementary school many years ago, they didn't allow you to say no. You got the shot, or you weren't allowed to attend public school. This was for MMR and other common vaccinations at the time. How say you?

At this point I am just waiting for Darwin to take care of the anti-vax crowd. They've earned it.
Unfortunately there are also people that cannot be vaccinated due to legitimate medical needs, and the children who have not received it yet. My 12 year old just got his first shot.

Flu Has Disappeared Worldwide during the COVID Pandemic by RuckusChan in conspiracy
Not following. Are you saying that Asians have less influenza deaths because more Americans are obese?
Anyone who studies epidemiology predicted this, they know it, and they know why it happened.
The influenza virus has a lower R0 and cannot pass and reproduce as easily as COVID-19. Therefore the masks and social distancing used for COVID-19 also work for influenza, and work better. Influenza can't spread. So it dies out.
Guess what. It's normal for people in SE Asia to wear masks during flu season as a courtesy to others. It's cultural and it has been for many years. And they don't have nearly as many people die of influenza as the US. Weird, huh?
This type of post needs to be nuked. A fifth grader could have figured this out, but it seems beyond people who are being deliberately obtuse.

I agree that it was orchestrated. Not grass-roots but astroturf.
The reason was that the Occupy (we are the 99%) movement was very dangerous. This took over a lot of the same people and distracted them with something unwinnable. The goal posts on something nebulous like this will be moved wherever needed to keep the group engaged and everybody busy.
Meanwhile the 1% continue to rape and pillage wholesale.

Why are most subs so utterly dead (devoid of comments) and how to fix it? by justvisiting in AskSaidIt
I'd bet that there are less than 1,000 people regularly reading and probably less than 500 active participants and commenters.
SearchVoat was a nice site statistic resource that daily posted total comments, commenters, comments by sub, and all of that. Were around 1,800 to 2k daily commenters before the Qtard invasion.
SearchVoat was a nice site statistic resource that daily posted total comments, commenters, comments by sub, and all of that. Were around 1,800 to 2k daily commenters before the Qtard invasion.
If I wasn't clear, my comment was aimed toward this site (and also poal).
This site's most populous sub has 39,000 subscribers, but very few comments and votes. I suspect that there aren't more than 1000 people actively on the site and less than 500 commenting and voting on a regular basis. I mostly lurk here a couple of times a week for a few minutes, then move on.
Poal is extremely small even in comparison to this site, let alone reddit. Poal's most active sub is a Q sub, with 800 subscribers. Most subs have more like 200. Other than the Q subs, news, and politics, very little active engagement with the site. A handful of new posts a day, and only a small number of votes or comments (other than the Q subs, news, and politics).
Voat had much more active engagement, at least. The Q people had a number of extremely active groups with lots of new posts, comments, and votes. They did tend to stick to those locations, but over time they chased people off.
Like I said, it's hard to get true numbers. Those are just my own anecdotes.
I'd like to remind everyone there is a "block user" and a "block sub" button under every post and every comment. Please use them! You can unblock users by clicking the "blocked" tab on the preferences page, or unblock subs by going to that sub directly and hitting "unblock sub" under any post there. by magnora7 in SaidIt

There simply aren't that many people regularly visiting the site and interacting with it. There were a couple of waves of new signups that happened corresponding with subreddits being canceled on reddit. But those people need to have a group of people to interact with, to comment on each others posts and other comments. Since that startup threshold wasn't met, they all left (mostly) after being here for a brief time.
The people who are actually here are outcasts of other social media (here and on poal and gab and parler) that have been kicked out or left reddit and twitter due to censorship and cancellation.
This tends to create a feedback loop, as some saw on voat. Only the outcasts were at voat, which means a very small group on a free speech site, and the really vocal, really unpleasant people tended to have extremist positions. As they grew more powerful, they were emboldened and they grew louder. This drove off more "moderate" or "reasonable" free-speech loving folk. Over time, this effect was amplified x 100, until only the true Nazis and scum of the earth were on voat. This has already taken over poal, and is beginning to happen here.
So the most populous sub on this site has about 39,000 subscribers, but almost all of them are gone. Hard to get any good metrics on the engagement each participant has on this site, but I'd bet that there are less than 1,000 people regularly reading and probably less than 500 active participants and commenters. Poal is even smaller. Since the Q people took over, the most populous sub has only 800 subscribers and probably less than 100 active participants.
You have to hit a critical mass early on in order to have a snowball effect of people joining and more people joining because there are people already there. If you don't hit it within a certain amount of time, you're not going to. And I think saidit and poal are both going downhill due to the extremists taking over the political discussion on the site. If you don't pass their purity test, they actively go against you with more than just downvotes. I had my life threatened on multiple occasions on voat, due to having an opinion that did not line up with the purity test. That scares most people off, and the site dies a slow death.
So How's Biden? by christnmusicreleases in politics
Well, a claim was made about SpaceX in particular. I'm aware that they just got a NASA contract to develop a lunar lander based on the Starship design. If you are aware of something to the contrary, I'd love to see a citation. I follow space policy pretty closely.
EDIT: I'm also aware that they were awarded two contracts worth $159 million today for spy satellite launches for the US government (US Space Force and NROL).
Again, I'd like to see a citation. Not just "he said, she said".

That's the idea. It looks like a small UFO on a stick. You point it at the open sky and you get internet out the cable. The first consumer version they have out draws too much power for off-grid use (on the order of 250W). If they can get it down to half that or lower, it'd be good for all kinds of uses such as people living in RVs, etc.
