Well when you're a hat, you're not required to question or make any decisions. Your job is to go along with the programWhat are we debating/arguing about?
Coronavirus is not an issue? We have it beat? The government is lying? We know better than the experts? All of the above?
I find it interesting/amusing how geographical location influences belief/opinion. Americans tend to be far more suspicious/less trusting of their government than citizens of other developed nations. I have a lot of confidence in the government here and think they do a fine job most of the time.
Nice deflection Comrade. But you never addressed my question. What program? The one where people prosper and thrive as a nation, together?Well when you're a hat, you're not required to question or make any decisions. Your job is to go along with the program
Your implication that Canadians are somehow better than the cooky Americans is not warranted. Yeah, Americans know to question everything. They realize that if they go off the rails nobody's coming to save them.Perhaps you have a better safety net.Nice deflection Comrade. But you never addressed my question. What program? The one where people prosper and thrive as a nation, together?
I should be against this? Should more nations follow the lead of the USA and perpetually fight with each other over politics while constantly being angry?
Selfishness seems to be a virtue in the land of the free. In most countries (like Canada) people and communities try and work together. Co-operation is a good thing IMO - WAL.
The US could learn a thing or two from other nations. Arrogance is one of Americas worst qualities and it hinders progress.
With regard to Covid the "experts" I'm referring to are those that have studied and have university degrees in medicine and science etc.I don't get this homogeneous view of "experts". There are different experts with different views. Decent thinking people expect a debate.
People realize that what's often pushed on us is agenda driven. And when msm creates a hysteria of fear, produces talking heads who seem to focus on one aspect of a problem, are inconsistent, and do not engage in substantive debate, they most definitely should be questioned, if not descreditid altogether.
Plenty of experts who will justify leading us into endless war, taking away our basic rights etc.
Its not so much that its wrongly questioned, its that the answers never seem to be accepted, no matter what.I don't know what exactly you think these experts are saying that is being wrongly questioned.
oh my goodnessIn 2019 when the NBA season finished I stopped gambling. The plan was to take 6 months off from chasing numbers and just chill to avoid burn out. Then the pandemic started and it just extended that time. I didn't suffer at all with the lockdown, I was already slacking around doing nothing. Maybe because I am alone and don't have to worry much on others, maybe because I am not dependent on a 9-5 job, and maybe because I was renting a house with a big yard and not stuck in an apartment. Psychologically it was just a chill time. I saw some people get really hammered mentally from the lockdowns and uncertainty. Ignorance and propaganda didn't help them but to me it was just a respiratory disease, there was nothing extraordinary on how to try avoid getting it. I felt wary not knowing how wide a magnitude the outbreak was going to be and I felt sad knowing how much worse it was in other poor countries that I've been in with their non-existing medical infrastructure or government support. And I felt sad with the first death of the husband of a person I knew. I think that was a peak moment psychologically for me. Then it was just a matter of waiting it out. I thought it was amazing when scientists from the US and France took control of the ebola situation after the 2014 outbreak in a relatively short time. And now it's equally amazing that scientists have developed a vaccine for this virus in a year's time. Whoever denies the vaccine prevention for whatever x reason is a stupid and dumb fuck and deserves to die grasping for air from flooded lungs. These are the type of people that should be enslaved and we shall profit from them. Now Covid-19 is not even on my mental real estate day to day, it helps that I don't watch the entertainment news, now it's time to start gamblin' and rackets, game on game live.
