I have science and proven fact on my side. You have information provided by misguided and confused individuals who want to believe in magical immunity shields that last years from single shots or are "boosted" after half a decade. I will just say this: the human immunity system has very, very short memory.
That is an incorrect and ignorant belief. Please check your facts. You will find out how useless those blanket vaccinations are in the absence of an ongoing threat. That isn't to say they are useless as they are the go-to weapon during outbreaks.
Seriously. This account was created just to post some numbers and we are suppose to take them as fact? Hell, I could create an account on Reddit and come up with a totally different set of numbers and you can take my comment as fact too.
How much you want to bet they have been sitting on this? Probably waited until X number of people were compromised and they couldn't cover it up any longer.
Sorry, still don't care.
>We're discussing whether it is morally justified to support a person or organization whose profit from goods and/or services sold will be used in furtherance of the oppression of a political minority.
Last I checked the majority of Americans support gay marriage. So the reverse, those against it, are the political minority.
>But tolerance is not the same as acceptance
True. This is why the KKK has the right to exist even though their views are not acceptable by the majority.
I really don't see a problem with this. I mean, I can actually reason this as being used to find "bad guys". This is very different from the NSA bullshit program which you don't have to be a conspiracy nut to know is being used for totally different reasons than we are being told.
Good for them. By the time they figure out a single persons message that person will already have passed away from old age.
You think the internet is free of censorship and spying by the government where you live? Check again. You don't have to look too hard to find about every country in the "free world" is actively looking at ways to spy on their citizens and limit their access. Countries like China and Iran are unique in that they decided to make their own non-Western controlled version of the same trap.
Sad thing is that if the U.S. stopped importing the world market would crash followed by decades of wars. As much as I hate the huge amount of imports I will gladly take those over that happening.
But by saying the planet is doing it on its own makes us seem insignificant like ants on a giant ball!
The U.S. government didn't spend a penny on LHC. But U.S. based Fermi, and many other U.S. companies, provided equipment and help in building the LHC.
And what "brouhaha" is there about Higgs Boson? Last I checked they are still looking for its existence.
You mean the CIA has been actively trying to halt the nuclear weapons program of a nation who is opposed to the United States?
Maybe a better, simpler solution is to build good relations with those who oppose you? This current strategy doesn't seem to be working very well and looks like it will only end with lots of people getting killed.
Then why don't they do that?
>Nearly every time I read about the EU doing something that doesn't outright fuck over its citizens, I think to myself, "Man, they must have heard about how we're all about freedom and citizens rights and just ran with it."
I always think "this must be the first step towards something bad". And it is funny that people have to mention when there is an EU rule that a member state can opt out of like it is the exception rather than the norm.
