#2912388 CDC Whistleblower Claims Studies Disproving Link Between Vaccines and Autism...

Posted by mav1234 on 28 August 2014 - 08:11 AM

I've stayed quiet on this subject because frankly even if that study was "tampered with," there have been numerous others that found no connection between autism and vaccines.

 

Anyway, if anyone wants to read about how the CDC "whistleblower" was totally fuged by Hooker & the anti-vaxxer movement, you can read that in his statement where he was recorded without his knowledge and his name released without allowing it.  Yay.

Yes, and it took all of 20 seconds after arriving for the police to shoot him dead.

 

 

that video disturbed the crap out of me.

Meh isis is proving where you're born doesn't matter...

I'm sensing most of the last few posters don't know about National Report yet.

#2901710 Set-up in Furgeson Actors? 2012 Video Predicts Events

Posted by mav1234 on 21 August 2014 - 08:10 PM

Good question. I also missed the evidence that this guy was an actor employed by CNN. Appears to be a former military guy who is now a law enforcement officer doing his job.

 

this video refers to CNN staging a "psyop" campaign, but it doesn't substantiate it. 

 

the guy seems crazy, but there's no evidence he's from cnn as far as I can tell

Very rarely does an innocent person minding their own business and obeying the law get shot by police

 

"Very rarely" is still too fuging often.

Many protesters are blocking the entrances to stores that have been broken into to prevent looting.




#2891398 Shooting in Missouri sparks protests, looting

Yep agreed. Odd that it took this long for the store footage to be released.

 

Yup and to me it looks a lot like the cops, knowing they fuged up hard, that they have been overreacting hard, are trying to divert attention away from their tactics in fighting the protests towards the victim.

tbqh this is irrelevant to the greater issues here: the man who was shot was still innocent, still unarmed, and still surrending. the police are still scarily militarized. 




#2889229 Reparations for black descendants of the slaves

Posted by mav1234 on 13 August 2014 - 04:47 PM

 

They did get some land back, which are the reservations.  They (perhaps not all, I'll have to look at the stats) also received reparations as well.

 

 

 

You may want to research the situation on many of those reservations... They are the most impoverised places in the country by and large.  Native Americans, at least according to the government, are still the most impoverished ethnic group in the country (see http://www.census.go.../acsbr11-17.pdf).  The idea that the American government has "done right by them" and now should pay reparations to others demonstrates a disturbing level of ignorance. 

 

Slavery was atrocious.  No doubt about it.  Period.  But you can't even compare it to the genocide that took place in the Americas by European powers in any way - I don't mean like, "gee, this was worse than slavery!" I mean you literally can't compare the two.  There is no possible way that any sum of money could even come close to repairing the damage that was done during colonization of the country, and nor can you during slavery.  This isn't to say that America as a whole doesn't "owe" certain groups because of past situations that lead to present circumstances, but reparations aren't the answer.

 

The solution to poverty is not a check cut to each person impoverished.  I don't pretend to know what is, but just throwing some money at the problem to the individual isn't going to solve everything or very much at all.




#2889100 Reparations for black descendants of the slaves

Posted by mav1234 on 13 August 2014 - 02:52 PM

no check is going to solve institutional racism and cycle-driven poverty.  native americans, hispanics, and blacks suffer mightily in this country, and their plights are similar yet differnt.  but cutting a check to any one group isn't going to resolve issues, and it likely would create other ones.




#2888895 Reparations for black descendants of the slaves

Posted by mav1234 on 13 August 2014 - 12:16 PM

I'm all for programs targeted to fight poverty, esp. minority poverty, and to help combat institutional racism, but reparations directly paid to individuals will not alleviate any problems. 




#2886680 "Rape Culture"

Posted by mav1234 on 11 August 2014 - 05:19 PM

I don't think anyone using the term "rape culture" is attempting to imply individuals lose agency due to it, but instead, indicate that as a culture we may be too permissive of behaviors that lead to rape and sexual violence.  The idea that cultural factors do not influence our decision making is preposterious, but that doesn't mean that we lose all responsibility for our actions just because of those circumstances.

 

edit: to elaborate, I'm pretty sure references to rape culture is more that it allows rapists to continue to operate with impunity, as opposed to saying that our culture causes people to rape.

I'll just be happy with an adequate running game not featuring cam Newton.

I know it's just preseason, but I fear that our passing game is going to need to open up our running game.  :\
