No need to quote my post to talk about how smart you are.

Anyway, to people interested in discussing, it seems like Biden and the establishment Dems are interested in ratcheting up funding and legislation to increase already disastrous power wielded by the FBI and CIA, using Jan 6th as the political smokescreen.

Unfortunately MSNBC and CNN won’t cover it and Fox News will cover it badly and no one will realize that their government is amping up the surveillance state.
Forget China and Russia. The US government sees its own citizens as the real enemy. It watches them far more closely than any would be geopolitical rival.

How many weapons and soliders does China and Russia have in the US?
Alot less than the number who stormed the capital on January 6.

So yeah, it is a bigger threat.  "A gun in every bush" applies to domestic terrorists as well as peaceful citizens.

Does your numbers take into account that, as president, he has the best healthcare money can buy?
Or is this based on the average American, who (just fyi) does not have the best medical care or even very good medical care.
Between you and me Dave, I think Biden died sometime last year on the campaign trail and what you are seeing on TV, is his reanimated corpse. I don't want to start a conspiracy theory, but I'm sure I read something about 'Project Weekend at Bernie's".
So a reanimated corpse was better than Donald Trump?
Yeah... Yeah that makes sense.

I thought I'd calculate the odds of Joe Biden dying in office. Below are the actuarial tables so you can see my sources.
https://www.ssa.gov/oact/STATS/table4c6.html

Joe is 78 years old. He has a 4.78% chance of dying this year.

Out of 100,000, people only 56,065 would be left to make the ripe old age of 78.
4 years later 44,553 will be left to celebrate their 82nd birthday.

56,056 - 44,553 = 11503
100 / (56056 / 11503) = 20.5% chance of death in those 4 years. Joe didn't have his birthday on the day he was inaugurated so his chances are a fraction more.

I honestly thought his odds of dying would be a lot higher.  :-\


Edit: Joe has dementia.
Quote from: https://www.liftedcare.com/what-is-the-life-expectancy-for-someone-with-dementia/
General life expectancy for someone with Alzheimer’s is around 8-12 years.
After diagnosis, the average lifespan of someone with dementia with Lewy bodies was found in one study to be around 5-7 years after onset.
The average life span for someone with frontotemporal dementia (sometimes called Pick’s disease) is around eight years.

So its about 50-50. Ok, I feel better about this now.

Does your numbers take into account that, as president, he has the best healthcare money can buy?
Or is this based on the average American, who (just fyi) does not have the best medical care or even very good medical care.

https://www.newyorker.com/news/annals-of-inquiry/how-a-conservative-activist-invented-the-conflict-over-critical-race-theory

A frank admission that the hubbub over CRT is an insincere work of partisan astroturfing, from the person largely responsible for astroturfing it to begin with.
And it worked so well, no conservative questioned anything about it.

Yeah, I see he musta borrowed some pubic hair from Mike in order to glue it to his armpits for this special photo.

What a delightfully odd thing to say.

Borrowed...so like.... he gave it back after?
Who's mike? He sounds like a very generous guy!
Do you have evidence that Barry doesnt normally have armpit hair?
Why do you think Barry thought it would be important to have visible armpit hair for that photo, or... why do you think he would have been worried about NOT having it?
What exactly makes this photo special.

Better question:
How does he know what Obama's armpits look like before this photo?
I mean, there's obsession and then there's "I know what your armpits look like".

He never looked great in my books, but the creases along the back of the leg would happen if he just got there after leaving from mar-a-lago...being seated that long doesnt do even a crisp suit any favours.

Definitely not seeing that sparkle Donnie had during his time in public eye though, that's for sure
Obama looked much happier and healthier after leaving the WH.

... it makes complete sense that radicalized Anti-Trump Democrats would leak classified information ...

Only the "radicalized" ones.

Are there also non-radicalised Anti-Trump Democrats, or does being radicalised go with the gig?
I mean... Trump leaked Classified Information.  Without officially declassifying it first.  So.... you know... doesn't HAVE to be Democrats.

The article I posted.


lol @ the test animals here who took an experimental vaccine and risked their health on blind faith for a sticker and a box of juice

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/news-nation/doctor-on-covid-vax-we-screwed-up-we-didn-t-realize-the-spike-protein-is-a-toxin-does-this-mean-everyone-vaccinated-is-manufacturing-their-own-spike-protein-toxins-in-their-own-bodies

Quote
Doctor on COVID Vax: "We Screwed-Up. We didn't realize the Spike Protein is a TOXIN" Does this mean everyone vaccinated is manufacturing their own Spike Protein Toxins in their own bodies?

Audio from a radio show has emerged wherein Dr. Byram Bridle reveals the scientists behind the COVID-19 "Vaccine" made a terrible mistake.

According to the Doctor, who cites a brand new, peer-reviewed research study out of Japan "They made a mistake - they thought the spike protein was a great target antigen, only to discover it is a toxin, that can travel to many organs of the body, causing severe damage."

WORSE,  the spike proteins generated by mRNA vaccines don’t stay in the shoulder muscle, but spread to the brain, heart, ovaries, etc.

They also know that the spike protein is what causes the damage with COVID—and now it is clear how it is causing so much damage in other parts of the bodies of the vaccinated.

From the video below Dr. Bridle on why the vax injuries are happening:

"Spike protein, on its own is the cause of the vascular, neurodegenerative, problems, not the virus.

In the original theory it stay's in deltoid, goes to local draining lymph node, activates immune system.
But a new bio-distribution study from Japan tracked the vax and spike proteins.

It gets into the blood within days of vax, accumulates in spleen, brain, bone marrow, liver, adrenal glands, with high concentrations in ovaries.

Spike protein is a pathogenic toxin that causes damage if in circulation, binds to platelets, epithelial cells of blood vessels, clotting, bleeding, heart problems, brain blood clotting."

Conclusion is "We made a big mistake, and didn't realize it till now." "We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen but never knew the spike protein itself was a pathogenic toxin protein." "By vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin."

Isn't an antigen the thing we use in the vaccine to train the body's immune system to fight?
The same spike protienes that are on the corona virus?

So isn't it GOOD that the body attacks and destroys the spike protiene?

Non-elite males will beat ultra-elite females, quite soundly.
Just because you write it, does not make it true.

Like, I'm, pretty sure you can't run 100 meters in 10.49 seconds.  And I'm willing to bet that your local HS team of men can't either.

No, you are committing a fallacy. You are only comparing one of the best females against all "non-elite males." You need to compare all elite-females against all non-elite males.
Actually I'm comparing 1 Ultra-Elite Female to a non-elite male since that was Action's claim that the female would be beaten "quite soundly".  Which I have demonstrated to be false. 
I also do not have a list of all Elite-famale runners vs all Non-Elite-Male runners.  So I can't do that work.  Especially since "elite" and "non-elite" are undefined terms.  Like I would say I'm a non-elite.
I might be able to do the 100 meter dash in 20 seconds.  Might.  Should I be added into that pool?

Quote
Also:

There are hundreds of male elite athletes faster than her: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10-second_barrier

And here are a high school senior and a high school junior doing 100 meters in under 10 seconds:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZm3xlMw9us
I'd call those elite athletes.  And since I did not claim, nor refute the claim when it was made, that male athletes have a slight advantage (10-12% seems about right) given identical training, as female athletes, I'm not sure what your point is.

I'm just refuting the "Ultra-Elite Females get soundly beat by non-elite males" statement.

Are you arguing that 'ex-men' should be able to compete with women?

I'd like to use the example of Fallon Fox.

Fallon Fox was a dude. A dude who decided to hide behind gender apologists and compete in women's MMA.
Behold the headline.

Quote from: https://bjj-world.com/transgender-mma-fighter-fallon-fox-breaks-skull-of-her-female-opponent/
Everything happened in the first round and in the first two and a half minutes. It was messy, it was bloody and it’s not easy viewing for everybody. Tamika suffered a concussion and a broken skull and Fallon Fox wasn’t stopping until Tamika Brents was finally TKO’d.
Now it isn't easy viewing, because there aren't many people who would actively watch a man take a woman's face apart in a brutal assault and call it entertainment.

The defeated woman, who by-the-way was an extremely accomplished fighter in her own right said after the fight
Quote from: Tamika Brents
“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not because I’m not a doctor. I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right… I still disagree with Fox fighting. Any other job or career I say have a go at it, but when it comes to a combat sport I think it just isn’t fair.”

It is very very easy to sort this mess out. The women's competitions are a handicapped event. The handicap being, they don't have a y-chromosome. If you lack a y-chromosome, you can compete in the womens. But it you are xy or more uncommonly xxy or xyy or xxyy or any other combination with a y in it ... you can't compete in the women's because every cell in your body is male. And no amount of chopping off your genitalia, taking hormones and stuffing silicon in your chest is going to change that.

No one is stopping you neutering yourself and getting an office job or working in a factory. But you shouldn't be allowed to compete with women in sports.

We should also look at 'ex-men' competing at colleges and actively winning scholarships. They are taking places of women.


And if you are in any doubt as to the difference between men and women and thinking ... meh, women are only a second slower at 100m, maybe its not that big of a deal ... watch the video below. It is the weird event of mixed 100m relay. For reasons I don't fully understand, Jamaica decide to make their two men run first ... against everyone else's women. Have a look at the difference between Asafa Powell vs 5 of the fastest women in the world. Then decide if you chopped off Powell's enormous dick, if that would slow him down enough to make this a fair race (Give him time to heal. I don't mean chop it off 2 mins before the start).



That Powell race looks a lot like this college race ... spot the dude.


This is actually a bad argument.  Why?  Because the skull is not gender specific.  A man's skull is just as tough as a woman's skull.  Therefore, Fallon could have done that to anyone.
Also, reading up:
Did you know the orbital socket is part of the skull?
Having your "skull" broken also means bits where it's weak, like around the eyes.  And this is a common enough injury in the MMA circuit.  The 7 staples, btw, are for the skin, not the bone.  Like stiches.

Also:
Ashlee Evans-Smith kicked Fox's ass.

I'm sorry, but... *shakes head*

https://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/556523-laws-banning-trans-athletes-from-competing-in

Until men and women compete in sports together, on equal footing, the premise of this article is pure uncut bullshit.

There are reasons we don't have female linebackers in the NFL, reasons why there is a WNBA separate from the regular NBA, and that is that women's and men's bodies are fundamentally different, and that difference is determined at birth, not whenever whoever decides to choose what gender they want to be.

They're seriously saying that this isn't supported by science?  ::)

What Rama said.
In essence, how "strong" someone is has a lot of factors and testosterone is one of them.  And if you're gonna go Trans, odds are you aren't fitting the framework of your birth gender anyway.  (ie. strong woman / Weak male).
And besides, what the law is now saying is "If you take testosterone and become more agressive and stronger, like a man, you need to play on the girl's team.".
Conversely, its saying "Trans girls need to play on the boys team".
Think about that for a second.  If you're taking Estrogen and losing muscle mass, growing (small) breasts, dressing as a woman... then told "You gotta go play mens basketball" what the hell is that going to do?  Do you think it'll be some kind of advantage?  How is the public going to react to a Woman on the men's team?


Yes, men and women are built differently.  Men can get muscle mass alot faster and easier than women purely due to biology.  This does not mean a woman can't be as strong as a man.  Just means she needs to work harder.

Honestly, the division of the sexes in sports seems more geared towards "keeping men and women separate" than it does any comptative disadvantages.

I'll buy one Thork for -20,000 dollars

There may be something to this.
Why just an NFT, why not a full on cryptocurrency?

The Thork could be mined into into Quanta-Thorks placed on the open market. It could suck value out of the economy and make somebody rich.

But how would we mine them?  Just pulling the posts isn't work.  We'd need something time consuming and frustrating, like engaging Thork in debate.

Congratulations and good luck!

Thanks.

How did you get the job without knowing anything about it?
I think its a mix of I have alot of IT experienced with alot of things, such as coding and scripting which they want.  I can be trained.  I already started learning it by installing it on a VM before the interview.  And ... their pool of people who actually know it and could take the job (it requires a high security clearance) is very very small.  Like, I might not even get the security clearance because I haven't lived in Norway long enough and America is... not a country that answers inquiries like that typically.
