The Trump party (formerly the GOP) continues apace at encouraging the display of the latent very, very, un-Christian bigotry of a large percentage of American Christians. The only consolation is that because they also have an anti-science stance, about a thousand of them a day are dying of Covid and many more are being financially and physically harmed. If Covid keeps evolving in dangerous ways, and they keep denying the reality, enough of them will eventually be dead or become aware of how they fell for one of the greatest con-men of the century, their messiah Trump.
His lies, his illogical defense, and his hubris damage all professional athletes.
Kareem, not just one of the best athletes of all time but also a wise rational human.
I wish I’d paid more attention to my headline on my hike Saturday ;-), but seriously Ilya’s article is must read for those concerned about constitutional rights.
If Texas’ SB 8 subterfuge works, it would be a dangerous road map for attacking other constitutional rights. The slippery slope risks on the other side are minor by comparison.
The incredibly despicable RJK Jr., consorts with some of the most damaging groups on the planet in his quest to encourage needless suffering and death. It doesn’t increase his upper class wealth enough to sue the newspapers who report on his atrocities but he’s using it against a little guy. I’m sure his Dad and Uncles are very disappointed with how he turned out.
What’s traditionally been a silly placebo that takes money from the gullible has now become a potentially deadly snake oil scam.
No way, not me, I recently turned 3.875 times that age.

We’re living through tens of thousands of avoidable deaths caused by the anti-intellectualism movement ignoring reality.
The problem is not as much ignorance as the false illusion of knowledge.
Apparently, you go to this “school” to get a degree in ignorance and dishonesty.

I was reading another excellent review article from Cameron this morning and chuckled at this.
First he says:
“My house is old (built in 1953”
Then He says:
“Granted, a lot of that has to do with the fact that my house is super old”
Here in New England a 68 year old house is more than a hundred of years shy of being super old. Back when I visited some historic sites in Utah I’d noticed that other tourists from west of the Mississippi thought things were old, while our group was thinking those things aren’t very old.
This would be my choice for the headline:
71% of Unvaccinated Have No Critical Thinking Skills
