    Posted to quick. But, yes, bring on the lawyers.

    While this might be a small nit to pick, it also presents as cause for legal action against any entity that seeks to force vaccinations or restrict other methods of treatment for COVID-19.

    “This judgment “reinforces the possibility of a compulsory vaccination under conditions of the current COVID-19 epidemic,” Nicolas Hervieu, a legal expert specializing in the ECHR, told AFP.”

    Epidemic, as opposed to pandemic, could be construed to mean we are for all intents and purposes no longer in a health emergency. Thus, all restrictions pertaining to said health emergency are null and void.

    I can think, and I don’t need or want you to think for me.

    This right here is exactly what these school marms of cancel culture need every time they open their mouths. It cannot be said enough. because that is the ultimate aim of canceling. The notion they believe they need to tell us what to think is ludicrous on its face, and in the case of corporate media behind paywalls, I’m certainly NOT going to pay for the “privilege.”

    There’s a fairly good summary of the movie “Office Space” here.

    Even 20 years it hits home.

    “(Bloomberg) — The world is awash with too much savings and central banks don’t have the tools on their own to combat the economic stagnation that’s a result.

    Translation: Too much money is being hoarded by the cartels and 1% and central banks don’t have the tools to combat it. Governments are too corrupt to address it.

    Giuliani called New York City police to report the incident on July 7. It was no big story then, but it is now.

    This week in the news: Rudy Guliani is really Al Bundy. Film at 11.

    In America, I suspect that a true populist leader could only arise at the state level, and then from outside the two main parties.

    Thanks for a great comment that illustrates the mechanics of the US political economy perfectly. I also like the Tommy Douglas reference. To that end, our Tommy Douglas would have to come from the kitchen table discussions that used to take place in past generations, but no more. Given that even families are polarized in the current political environment, we might be waiting awhile for the true populist to emerge.
