who knew, Greenspan was a proponent of what is essentially "soft-slavery".
Greenspan is right that taking the lid off of immigration will drive the top of the wage scale down, greatly reducing wage inequality.
Gates is right that there's one "job" that won't be automated: ownership.
I confess that I am assuming that Greenspan (who was never a dummy) is talking about wage, rather than income inequality. Otherwise I'm not sure how he expects a rise in immigration to do anything but accelerate the shift of income from wages to rents.
hey, you, paid Russian web-propaganda dude! You're on the wrong thread. This is the thread for the paid pro-Nuclear web propaganda team. The Ukraine thread is about a page and a half down.
Every time I come on to one of these threads about radiation, usually dozens of very knowledgable people come on and say that this kind of radiation is less than a bannana, and therefore, safe. I can't imagine what could possibly be causing such observations of slowing decay. Maybe those scientists are part of the world coal-burning conspiracy who are trying to raise the earth's climate to make it more habitable for the aliens, and are spreading false stories to discredit that clean, clean, safe and reliable nuclear power.
as in meatspace, language is still a powerful barrier. Though at least there are tools to try to address that.
For every family that takes unvaccinated kids to France and brings them back sick
Is there something particularly disgusting about France that I am unaware of?
A particularly low vaccination rate, mostly. Along with Switzerland, it seems that most of the USA's trip-to-X-and-came-back-with-measles cases seem to be from France.
I'm not a homeschooler (all my kids are in public), but I've known a few. One of my best friends is a family practice doc. His family homeschools because they believe they can give a better education than the local schools in his small town, but he's adamantly in favor of vaccination.
Homeschooling absolutely doesn't imply anti-vax (although the Venn diagram does overlap a fair bit).
Did you miss the lower bad outcomes risk than the vaccine?
I did, but the math (and severity of outcomes) were off so I ignored it.
That's a pretty legit-sounding reason not to trust that particular doctor. I wouldn't hesitate to look for another doctor and get a second opinion.
And you would most assuredly be wrong. Certainly not recently. We are quite careful about what we eat, tending only to eat those things God fashioned and directed us to eat.
God provided me with a cheeseburger yesterday, and it was aluminumally delicious.
Yes, I'm making fun of you. All opinions aren't equal, and yours is incredibly naive and dangerous. You're endangering your kids for no legitimate reason, you're a bad parent, and I have no desire to be tactful about this idiocy anymore.
Question, if the vax works so well, why then are the vaxxed so worried about the few who dont.
Short answer: because measles is a human-only disease like smallpox and polio. We could eliminate it. In which case, the we'd have as many adverse outcomes from measles and its vaccine as we do now from smallpox and its vaccine: zero.
There are other reasons, but IMHO that's good enough. Except, perhaps, for the virus-rights movement.
I skipped the second M of the MMR (mumps), as my sons exposure risk was minimal and it's very treatable with lower bad outcomes than the vaccine.
Have you ever seen the mumps? What kind of sadistic bastard would rather see his kid suffer through that than a 5-second injection?
Punishing the victims.
You misspelled "willful accomplices". Everyone's heard that vaccines are good and safe. Rallying against that is exactly like arguing that cigarette smoke is harmless when it's well documented and universally understood to be the opposite.
