It's accurate. Not wanting to believe a source is different from that source being biased. When you pick your tribe over your country, you tend to lose focus on that fact.

I couldn't agree more with a single post in this thread. I've some STRONG feelings about that horrendous business
Lol man, in all perfect honesty... all airlines suck ass today.

Before the pandemic, when I said airline travel is literally at an all time shit low and can't get worse, I was very sure it couldn't get worse... I was wrong lol.

I literally refuse to go places these days just based on how bad flying is.

I had to fly to Arkansas for work this week. My flight home was delayed, cancelled, resumed, delayed and eventually held connecting flight on tarmac. While I was waiting I cruised by another airlines terminal.. that flight had been ultimately cancelled and the full gate was in an uproar. You aren't wrong at all. No one seem to be doing it right.

It's an AP article and according to Captain Blood, it's the TRUTH. DO NOT DISPUTE IT OR QUESTION ITS AUTHENTICITY

https://apnews.com/article/science-health-coronavirus-pandemic-d9504519a8ae081f785ca012b5ef84d1

"People with breakthrough infections make up an increasing portion of hospitalizations and in-hospital deaths among COVID-19 patients, coinciding with the spread of the delta variant, according to the leaked documents."

Analysis / Bias

A quote from the above New Yorker article summarizes the blog's political stance, which Lokey told Bloomberg is: "Russia=good. Obama=idiot. Bashar al-Assad=benevolent leader. John Kerry= dunce. Vladimir Putin=greatest leader in the history of statecraft."

Failed Fact Checks

Says China "stole Coronavirus from Canada and weaponized it into a Bioweapon." – False
Craigslist ad proof counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally "paid to make chaos"? – False
It's now against the law in California to shower and do laundry on the same day. – Mostly False
A "newly uncovered" photograph reveals Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was crying over an empty parking lot, not detained migrant children, at a protest in Texas. – False
"The Ukrainian government just indicted the Burisma gas company & named Hunter Biden for accepting millions of dollars from a slush fund." – False
During the last hundred years the temperature increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was 0.01°C. – Incorrect
New Study Confirms EVs Considerably Worse For Climate Than Diesel Cars – Inaccurate
This coronavirus genome contained sequences of another virus […] the HIV virus (AIDS virus) – Inaccurate
Coronavirus contains 'HIV insertions' – Inaccurate
Fabricated genetic sequences used to support the hypothesis the virus arose naturally – False
Overall, we rate ZeroHedge an extreme right-biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information that routinely denigrates the left. (8/18/2016)
Lol. You can choose to believe whatever you want, especially since you have already determined what is "truth" before it is submitted to you.

Your truth is no more the truth than anyone else. That is the only truth. Unless of course you observe it first hand.
You've got your alternate truth, right?

Absolutely. Or, a working truth. I'm open to anything really, but the recent flip flop from the CDC doesn't really inspire confidence they know what is actually going to happen with Covid and/or the Vaccines.

Perhaps the truth "evolves" to my understanding of things someday.

Being unvaccinated is like driving without a seatbelt on. Can you drive home safely from the store? Probably, but how long can you keep on doing that before you get into a accident? What if you hit someone else on the road?

The great thing about the truth, is it can evolve. But, if you're wanting a certain truth, the truth will not evolve.

Are you for firing Dr. Fauci?

I got so sick from both Morerna shots, that I almost had to go to ER, both times. For now on, I’ll take my chances with Covid. Almost forgot, both times my arm felt like I got run into by a M2 Competition.

I got both Moderna shots early this spring and had no issues with either. Just a bit of soreness at the injection site for a day or so.

Yes, I also miss the times before social media. Other than LinkedIn, got me current job, no other "mainstream" social media.
People fighting/divided to almost a cult following over simple things such as a mask, getting shots…. Like, actually causing physical harm to each other due to altercations in stores, in front of children, losing jobs or going to jail with it all being recorded on a phone and shared around the world in seconds.
Yeeesh! No thanks!
Some extended family members CALL MY PHONE to ask me to get on Facebook, because they haven't heard from me in a long time………. Let that sink in for a moment.

"Why do you seldom attend family gatherings and duck away when we take photos?" I
Prefer not to have my photos posted online. "I promise I won't". Me. :bs:

Rigidity doesn't inspire confidence. Being willing to change as circumstance & the knowledge base change is only good.

"The website sells various dietary supplements, promotes alternative medicine and climate change denial, makes tendentious nutrition and health claims, disseminates fake news, and espouses various conspiracy theories and pro-Donald Trump propaganda. These conspiracy theories include chemophobic claims about the purported dangers of "chemtrails", fluoridated drinking water, anti-perspirants, laundry detergent, monosodium glutamate, aspartame, and vaccines."

I like to call Instagram... mutual masturbation...

People live for the likes, put nonsense up that no one cares about, share private stuff only to get a reaction... its all for the likes. It needs to stop and quick... people have a very alternate view of reality these days.
