Big pharma is bad. Don't trust big pharma.

Big HCQ is very good. I love it. Trust them and give them all your money.

No, you heard wrong. The idea that HCQ doesn't work for Covid-19 is the consensus of the overwhelming majority of the big pharma linked medical scientific community. Those not linked to big pharma overwhelmingly consider HCQ-azithromycin to be effective.

You're wrong. None of this is true.

He expresses his plan to inhabit his granddaughter’s body after she destroys him.  She succumbs to his wishes and succeeds in destroying him.  His plan succeeded. 

This isn't correct. He destroys himself, and doesn't inhabit her body. Rise of Skywalker is a garbage movie - or it would be if it weren't only a fever dream I had once - but that's not a fair criticism.

Synecdoche, New York, directed by Charlie Kaufman. I liked this movie overall, but I had to watch it twice to even start to make sense of the overall plot, or my version of "sense" anyway, and I still don't get the last half hour. Talk about naval gazing so intensely that you actually fall into your own naval!

Yeah, agreed.

As for my answer? I guess maybe Brazil?

I don't know what is meant by "boycott" in this context. Would I support my country not sending athletes? Yeah, I guess. Would I not buy Beijing 2022 mech? Well, I wasn't going to anyway. Would I not watch it on TV? I mean, ditto, I wouldn't have done in any case. Would I support ending all trade with China for the duration of the Olympics? No, probably not.

Just brand him already, bar him from society, make him walk in the streets to avoid infecting people on the sidewalks. Strip him of civil liberties and human dignity. Shame him, cancel him.

I think arresting him is probably enough. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

I could sense there was a lot of excitement here when people woke up and saw a Trump article. The most popular president in U.S. history, that people voted for because they love his policies

There was a recent, definitive poll that proved otherwise.

Seriously, who are these people??? Never of them or what they represent.

You yourself have said that Qanon cultists are "very sensible people". You followed the debate where Trump told the Proud Boys to "stand back, and stand by" with interest. This is just not honest.

Posted in: Grim view of global future offered in U.S. intelligence report See in context

The Trump supporter sits in his musty apartment, beads of sweat collecting on his furrowed brow. Having tacitly admitted that liberals are better educated and more informed than he is, he finds himself in the unenviable position of having to argue that doctors, scientists, and experts are all wrong. Each one of them, a filthy deep-stater, who try to suppress the truth of Qanon, Trump, and the rest of the real free-thinkers and truth knowers.

But he knows that, if he posts this, he'll be mocked again for his slavish dedication to conspiracy theories. To having so confidently predicted that Trump would win in a landslide, and then that the States would certify him, and then that the Supreme Court would say that the election doesn't count, and then that Trump somehow, someway, had an ace up his sleeve to maintain his grip on the Presidency. He'd be mocked for devoting himself wholeheartedly to these obvious lies as, one by one, his predictions failed to come true.

What to do? What to do?

He draws the curtain back briefly, letting the sun shine in. Outside, he sees people wearing masks, reading newspapers, and taking care of themselves and each other. Don't they know there's no pandemic? That the media is lying to them? That they should be angry that Bill Gates is using the vaccine that he created with Chinese magicians to make everyone trans?

But he sees something else. They look happy.

Quietly, he begins to rise. Brushing the Chip Star crumbs from his shirt, he ventures towards his front door. Puts on his shoes. He's about to turn the door handle when, all of a sudden... the familiar ping of an e-mail.

It's from the Trump Campaign. "We need your help," the subject reads. "Can you give us your money so that Trump can buy another round of Big Macs for himself?"

There was no time to go outside now. He had no time for fresh air, or fresh perspective.

Now was the time to empty his wallet.

Brexit - I don’t remember too much talk about issues like this coming from the leave side in their grand plan for the UK. Surely they considered it?

Johnson said he'd never allow a border in the Irish Sea and then put a border in the Irish Sea.

He's a stupid PM, but to be honest I don't think that's such a problem. I've read in UK publications like Private Eye (which I consider to be much funnier than our Onion website, and more informative than many other media outlets) that the Civil Service and similar can handle ministers, even Prime Ministers, who are dumb, or unprepared, or just not up to the gig (at least at first), because even the least gifted office holders are expected to want to do their jobs.

But the problem with Johnson is that he's lazy and disinterested. And you can't fix that.

This article is obviously implying such, although they wont come out and say it.

Is it? Seems like you're inferring something that isn't there. Hollywood isn't mentioned once, for example.

Who do YOU think they are referring to?

Scientists, doctors, and other experts in their field.

very curious statement,

Seems reasonable to me. It's demonstrable. Look at the large numbers of people who, instead of believing doctors and scientists, insist that Covid-19 isn't real, or isn't bad, or that vaccines have microchips in them, or hawk useless cures like hydroxychloroquine or disinfectant injections.

Are you 100% sure about this?

No, because I don’t know who “you” as any JT poster is, and I also cannot be entirely sure of my SO’s mind, since it is entirely independent of mine. I can, however, make a highly educated guess based on the conversations we’ve had and the experiences we’ve shared. Were i to give it a percentage? I dunno, 99? 98? I don’t think it’s important.
