Gawd. The recommendation to buy a gun because we should be afraid of Trumpian mobs is crazy as fuck. I'm not buying into it. And, uhh, nice hair trigger on that rant, btw.

Trump went all in to overturn the election & failed miserably. It might have been the lamest coup attempt ever. Absolutely pitiful. He never had a chance but that didn't stop him. The election was not stolen. Trump & the GOP knew that all along.
Trumpanzee's are not the reason I own guns, but the fucking crack heads that will stick a blade in you for nothing more than a $10 bag of what ever the fuck controls their life.

But again, yea, anti-fucking-gun-nuts, that fail to explain their position, and zero fucking plan to take the guns from the bad guys, but only the people that do follow the fucking rules. We are not the fucking problem!

I didn't say fetishize guns, obsess over them, stockpile them, be careless with them. But I would get a handgun, learn how to use it and keep it in a safe.

In Germany their first coup attempt was a spectacular failure. Ten years later Jews are getting rounded up door to door and getting tossed in ovens. It doesn't take long for even modern societies to break down. Look how many tens of millions of Americans don't live in reality today, and are getting worse by the day, not better - it can potentially get worse. Not guaranteed but you'd be stupid not to consider it.

Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Margarine Taylor Greene says that vaccine passports are “corporate communism”, which I can only get a “What the fuck are you talking about?” out of Marx.


Lol ... "corporate communism” ... Oftentimes, I hear a new phrase and I can tease it out based on the juxtaposition of the two ideas. But this? It’s alliterative.

It’s part of that ignominious list of Right wing buzz words that’s meant to be an albatross around the neck of whatever they associate it with. If the Republicans called labradoodles “the favorite dog of the Marxist,” the breed would all but disappear in the red states.

Gotta be honest I wouldn’t load a vaccine passport app on my phone unless I absolutely had to do it.
I see nothing good coming from that. The signed off paper is good enough for me. I’ll keep it in my wallet.

I'm interested-how is the digital copy so much more dangerous than a paper one? Or the base question, which is how is either one dangerous in the first place? Given the vast trammeling of personal liability and personal privacy done in the last 70+ years or so, ESPECIALLY by corporations (I point out store affinity cards as a prime example where nearly all people voluntarily give up their privacy for a few pennies savings) I always get a chuckle out of people drawing the line so arbitrarily and wrongly.

It is not that.
It is about how much access that app gets to your phone and does it do contact tracing and so on.
Another way is one could simply walk around with a picture of their vaccination certificate.
I’m not concerned about the certificate, I am concerned about who and what access does a digital passport have to my device and where does this data go.

Yes, there may be issues with this that need to be discussed. Discussed in good faith without idiots like Greene and her "fleece the flock" buzz words like Corporate Communism,
Cultural Marxism, and myabe Agricultural Leninism, Cosplay Bolshevism, Low-fat Stalinism, High Intensity Interval Communism ,Harper-and-Marxism? and any other dumb shit and nonsense these grifters make up.
