    covid-19

    It’s all about percentage increase. If you go from one case to 13 it’s a 1200% increase, and if you go from 36 000 to 40 000 it’s only a 15% increase. /sarcasm
  2. I’m really struggling with all of this. I don’t envy the mods at all. Where does the line between sheer stupidity and trolling lie? Is Trump a troll or stupid as an example? The quality of discussion is suffering. It appears that most threads within a few posts get trolled, followed by a few tenacious posters who are intent on getting the troll(s) to own their posts, which has proven entirely pointless. Followed up by “don’t feed the trolls” posts and quite often then by a few of us complaining about the trolls. Nobody has a gun to my head to stay on this forum. I’ve always enjoyed the “genuine” speakers corner content, and whether it is butting heads over religion, politics or guns However the signal to noise ratio is deteriorating:(

    Q

    "I was just one of those people, just like millions of other Americans, that just started looking at other information," Greene said. "And so, yeah, there was a time there for a while that I had read about Q, posted about it, talked about it, which is some of these videos you've seen come out. But once I started finding misinformation, I decided that I would choose another path." From the little I read about her I don’t think she’s a nice person. But I disagree with your conclusion about her public view in Q. “Once I found misinformation...” that is publicly distancing herself from Q.

    https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.foxnews.com/politics/marjorie-greene-georgia-gop-says-shes-not-a-qanon-candidate.amp Don’t crucify me for posting from Fox. I thought I had seen it on the hill (about the only USA news source I read) but a google search turned up the same article I recalled seeing.
  5. Unless they have a lisp
  6. Completely off topic. When did you get the green god powers? Congratulations or commiserations :)
  7. Some people are best ignored. When there was a cry for Rush to be banned I disagreed. I like diversity and not an echo chamber, it is nice having posters where I disagree with their world views, because it challenges my views and gives me a different perspective. For the most part the posters who have different viewpoints have the backbone and conviction to consistently defend their viewpoint. However there is at least one poster here, where their sole objective is to troll. They add no value whatsoever and are brazenly open about it. I think their behaviour detracts from quality discussions and the overall “user experience” in speakers corner. I’ve come to the opinion that continued blatant trolling should ideally result in a permanent ban.

    No. In the article I read she said she no longer thinks Q is credible.

    I read that she has seen the light?

    Honestly, I got exposed to a bucket load of Evangelicals growing up. They are the taliban of Christianity. Of course there is a spectrum there always is. On one side of the spectrum will be the genuine loving caring person with altruistic motives. At the other end you get Pat Robertson and the private jet club narcissists. I would say that for evangelicals there is a considerable weighting towards predators. look at how evangelicals suspend all rational thought to support Trump. A significant proportion of his base are evangelicals. My OPINION is that a large part of that is the church indoctrination in evangelicals. The Mumbo jumbo of god works in mysterious ways etc.

    Q

    Unfortunately religion and especially Christianity has the insane underlying principle of “faith” and the sheep are actively taught not to question anything. They prey on the vulnerable and easily manipulated. I’m pretty happy to generalise that most church leaders are predators, especially of the evangelical flavour.

    covid-19

    I’m not sure if the accuracy as some of my aunts news sources can be dubious... Seems Covid might have released a new upgraded version https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1307599/china-disease-news-coronavirus-death-cases-latest-Kazakhstan

    No it’s a victory in their minds. Proof of persecution. We will be feeding them to the lions next
  14. No, no, no Trump doesn’t take a salary as President. Don’t you know that costs him over a billion a year?

    And this is why America is screwed... Comment taken from the Hill “As my wife pointed it out, this mask thing is a ploy to install the burqa and to normalize Sharia Law.PATRIOTS, SAY “NO” TO MASKS, NO TO MANDATORY VACCINE, NO TO THE MARK OF THE BEAST.“
  16. Exactly! I’ll at least have stories to tell when I’m old
  17. End of a wild ride for me! Three and a half years of chaos. Shameless may as well have been a documentary of my life. In many ways a sad ending due to mental health of a person involved. But alongside it some major funny events and times. Karma also came through proving that staying within the law is always best. Some of the people who caused me massive drama and stress got done in a major police bust last week... They fucked up the life of someone very special to me and are paying a high price.
  18. The poor oppressed Christian line in the USA makes me laugh. You can’t even elect a president who doesn’t claim to hold Christian beliefs
  19. Oh come on. I’m not bothered to trawl through 100’s of posts. You’ve not done newbie here. Jesus we all know that Normiss is a left wing lunatic, Billvon is a tree hugger and I’m a religious hating bigot.
  20. Well suffering the consequences could be exactly as was originally proposed. Deny them healthcare because they are ultimately costing society. So in some ways you are agreeing with him. To be clear I don’t care what religion or belief system you are from, the same would apply. Don’t put others at risk because of your selfishness. Fair enough on casting the first stone. You’ve not seen Ron’s posts? They go well beyond self Defense. From the way he writes the message he is itching for the SHTF so that right wingers can go on a killing spree. As far as self defense, I’m lucky enough to live in a country with a functional police system and without one of worst gun and violence problems in the world.
  21. Why is the US system so skewed towards “old” white guys? Surely the demographic of the USA should support more diversity? Maybe the wave of younger people in politics and rise of social media campaigning will shift the balance. I’d be interested in your views?
  22. First off, obeying the law of the land is actually one of the teachings of Jesus. If they are going to flout the rules they deserve the consequences. His suggestion is one that I don’t necessarily agree with. However there should be consequences. They are selfishly placing other people at risk. Maybe they should be fined heavily and the money put into subsidising the costs of the innocent people they have harmed, and if that means they lose their homes and everything they own (due to your expensive health care system) that seems reasonable to me. Secondly this cherry picking of the bible always amuses me. Didn’t Jesus teachings nullify the Old Testament it is stoning gays still acceptable? And to ask you a question in return. Where do you stand on Ron’s eagerness to shoot liberals? Is he given a pass for wanting to inflict harm on people? I haven’t heard you advocate that, but to my knowledge you haven’t smacked that down either (could be wrong I don’t read every post in every thread) But my point still stands, god seems impotent on protecting his flock
  23. I know you’ll likely see this as Christian bashing, but isn’t god supposed to protect his flock?
  24. In sorry Wendy. That is a really stressful and disturbing situation
