Business insiders have warned Wall St. and investors about Chinese manufacturing for DECADES. Everyone, from CEOs to the common consumer have ignored these warnings again and again. First of all, cutting corners is a standard Chinese business tool.Secondly, there are NO/ZERO/0 consequences for Chinese companies if they produce markedly inferior products, even if said products risk the public health, or cause injury.

I think it's all a part of that left-wing meme, in which most of them don't even realize theyre meming. For example, 'my three-year-old just asked me, "Mommy, why is Trump trying to defy the laws of thermodynamics?" I don't know what I should say.

A year to pass a drug which has been around since 1934 and been used by Millions if not Billions of people already.

Female (progressive) friend in Toronato tells me about throwing a coffee in the face of a dude at Starbucks because he was jacking it to two young women at another table. Me:Sitting in a Starbucks in downtown Vancouver BC. Tranny at another table, whips it out & starts goin at it. If I hit did what she did, I'd be the bad guy in her eyes, and I'd get arrested.

I suppose with regard to 1). The citizen's power continuously decreasing as government's power increases.. 2). The citizen's access to their elected representatives. 3). The level of punishment a citizen receives if they oppose government in any way, from financial punishment up to potential execution. 4). The lack of freedom of each citizen as government dependence increases. The limitations on what type of work one can do, as well as travel, etc. The main character finds freedom only after inadvertently breaking all ties with the government, which in itself is terrifying in that one is entirely alone to face the dangers of life, (ie, no police, hospitals, no welfare etc.). 5). The pressure which government puts on one's community (friends, family), in order to bring the offending citizen into line, as we see in China's new Social rating system. If a friend helps the offender, the friend's credit rating drops. It's been about 30 years since I read it, but those are some things I recall.

“It seemed to K. as if at last those people had broken off all relations with him, and as if now in reality he were freer than he had ever been, and at liberty to wait here in this place usually forbidden to him as long as he desired, and had won a freedom such as hardly anybody else had ever succeeded in winning, and as if nobody could dare touch him or drive him away, or even speak to him, but — this conviction was at least equally as strong — as if at the same time there was nothing more senseless, more hopeless, than this freedom, this waiting, this inviolability.”

Google/Youtube parent company is Alphabet as in Alphabet agencies, (i.e.; CIA, FBI, DHS, SES). I'd include IRS, but I'm pretty sure that they are an entity unto themselves. Branches of the most powerful mafia in the world.

I don't think she'll last long, just as I knew Soph wouldn't. There are only so many death threats a child can receive. Besides, you know their teachers are isolating them and turning the other kids at school against them.

I think the best you'll get is them making photocopies of the checks and burning them on video of course, then secretly cashing the checks. The best we could hope for is that they accidentally burn the real one and try to cash the fake and get charged with fraud.

Politically inclined people tend to go on and on about Orwell's "1984". I always found Franz Kafka's "The Castle" to be a far better warning of the excesses of government.

Congress won't do shit! Not just because the Dems control it. Even Trey Gowdy said that Congress is not good at these types of investigation and they don't have the force to get the information they need, (Eric Holder 400 days waiting), and they don't have the power to do anything even if they did have the information.

I think the bigger story there was that they were very closely connected with the Clinton foundation. As far as I understand, there is no patent on hydrochloquine, so pretty much any pharmaceutical company in the world could make it.

I absolutely guarantee that Twitter execs have all bought stocks or puts on Bill Gates' drug, or some other new drug that will be hundreds of dollars a bottle.

I had been shadow-banned for most of my time on reddit. I posted a George Webb video & bye bye! People could only ever see my posts if I had the term shadow-banned in it. It was there way of getting you by saying, "See, you haven't been shadow-banned, everyone can see you."
