Perhaps adding a special dye that turns them gold, silver and bronze, depending on performance, might raise sales.

There are loads of completely credible doctors, medical scientists and journalists 

Can you name one?

Sure. Once my work for the day is out of the way I'll list a few.

Ah yes, either believe doctors, scientists and journalists, or a guy on the internet named after the area between the anus and the scrotum. Though choice, eh?

There are loads of completely credible doctors, medical scientists and journalists who don't swallow the official narrative and have solid, peer-reviewed and clinical evidence to back up their views. But you wouldn't know it if you just consumed a diet of "mainstream" junk from people with a financial motive to either look the other way or deliberately misinform the public.

But pop yourself a Restoril and take a nap as history rolls right over you.

Posted in: All Olympic live viewing events in Tokyo to be canceled: Koike See in context

I look forward to the day, sometime in the far distant future, when the Japanese people kick criminal liars like Koike and just about everyone in the LDP to the curb. These politicians are holding the country hostage with relentless fear mongering about the virus while preventing doctors from providing sick COVID patients with a cheap and proven effective drug called I.... , and providing it as an effective prophylactic against the virus.

Instead, they’re in the pocket of the pharmaceutical industry, promoting expensive experimental drugs on a guinea pig population. If these things are so safe and effective, might Koike suggest that only vaccinated people be able to attend the outdoor events? (I don’t support vaccine apartheid, just tossing up an idea that I thought she might consider). All she’s doing if further demonstrating this whole affair is a 3 ring circus paid for by the hapless chumps in taxpayerland: the Games themselves, the government theatrics surrounding it, and the relentless propaganda campaign to inject people with experimental cocktails.

And for the millionth time, I’m not against vaccination in principle, just this one.

Build Back Better World initiative

As rotten as the BRI is, Asia ought to be wary of B3W as well.

Using the same slogan bandied about by Boris, Biden and an assortment of other politicians of dubious provenance and intent, this Build Back Better stuff comes straight from the percolating bowels of the World Economic Forum's PR office. The same WEF populated by corporations and hangers-on whose commitment to democracy, sovereignty and free speech is only slightly less tenuous than that of the CCP. The same folks who pushed lockdowns and have increased their wealth tremendously during the pandemic at the expense of people's health, freedom and prosperity.

"For sensitive infrastructure such as telecoms and strategically located ports, however, it will continue to be either/or and they'll be under pressure to make the 'right' choice."

Yep.

Posted in: Health experts warn of Olympic COVID-19 threat; prefer no spectators See in context

Sounds like the establishment are getting frustrated that more and more plebs are getting tired of the fear mongering, don't want a bar of the jab if they can avoid it, and want to get their normal lives back.

So what do they do? Why, throw out some threat that no spectators will be allowed at the Olympics. This might only be a threat to people who wanted the Games to go head anyway, which seems to be a majority.

Japan's public remains concerned about the risks. A survey by NHK public TV this month showed 32% favored a cap on spectators, 29% wanted no spectators and 31% wanted the Games to be cancelled.

Caution is advised around anything to do with NHK. Their nightly news is simply an exercise in fear mongering and an ad for vaccines. Never once in their interviews with hand-picked experts or obviously curated comments from "random" people on the street does anyone show clear skepticism toward the preferred government line. Glad I don't pay for it.

Come on, seriously, what is the alternative to total lockdown if you genuinely want to save lives (as NZ did)?

Let doctors give infected people cheap, safe treatments and proven effective, regardless of what corrupt governments and their paymasters in the pharmaceutical might want.

Of course it would come to this. It'll be interesting to see how far they try to push it domestically. For a disease that only affects a tiny proportion the population, and from which the vast majority who catch it fully recover.

Fascists.

Posted in: Is tax avoidance ethical? Asking on behalf of a few billionaire friends See in context

BigYenToday  07:43 pm JST

The question is not whether tax avoidance is legal or illegal. The question is whether tax avoidance is ethical. Avoiding one’s responsibility to contribute to the running of your society is unethical. End of story.

It's a little more nuanced than that, I think. If a tax is excessive or is merely instituted to advantage a particular political party with dubious merit to society in general, then it's not really ethical. So avoiding such a tax is not necessarily unethical.

So the lockdown isn't working? I could've told Sutton that before he started it and saved him the trouble. But how many are even sick? If the Victorian government is that worried about it there are effective medicines that can treat people if they do develop symptoms. But really, it was never about that. It's about control.

Finally, a useful and thought-provoking article posted from The Conversation. Bravo, JT!

On topic, if you erroneously receive money or any other property and don't make reasonable efforts to inform the rightful the owner or return the property, that's theft. The principle is pretty simple really, and adding levels of moral relativity can have us heading into murky waters.

And they all were in quarantine for two weeks , after they traveled with their entourages by horse back to this meeting. 

Because heaven forbid them burning fossil fuels on air travel and riding around in big limousines.

And of course they will be into quarantine when they return to their home countries we all expect.................

Yup. These high-paid minions have no moral authority to order anyone to do anything, corporations or otherwise.

...especially the disingenuousness of the people pushing for de facto mass vaccination for people who don't need it.

*Except that without mass vaccination we don't achieve herd immunity. Without herd immunity, we face more and more variants that ARE harmful to those that weren't in danger previously. Already the India "Delta" variant is causing sudden onset diabetes and mucormycosis.*

By not having the vaccine, people are making the world a less safe place.

You might want to think things through a little before jumping to conclusions.

There are other treatments available that both have an effective prophylactic outcome and treatment outcomes that do not require injecting experimental vaccines (they have only emergency authorization, granted under the false premise that no other effective treatments are available). If safety is your concern, look at these:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn_b4NRTB6k&t=524s

These are safe and tested as effective in practice, yet there's a concerted effort to discredit them in favour of the new vaccines, together with a fear campaign about a new variant every other day in order to justify de facto mandatory vaccination and the attendant vaccine passports that give you the "right" (LOL) to move around "freely." I'm not saying don't get a jab if you want one, but effectively mandating them to participate in society is a bridge too far.

Did you actually read the article? If so, break it down for us with your expertise, won't you? Point by point.

And with the other link, all you're doing is appealing to authority by referring to "the institutions" and a phoney "consensus," while grudgingly acknowledging doctors who are getting real results on the ground to show that ivermectin works when used as a prophylactic and as a treatment when administered in appropriate doses - ethically, clearly - otherwise they'd be hauled before their certification boards. It's clear you haven't watched the video discussion or followed the links pointing to the research. Otherwise you'd understand the doctor's discussion about clinical trials.
