I haven't read any of his stuff yet, but I did recently buy 12 Rules for Life. I can get behind philosophy of "clean your room" and other such obvious things, but any sort of dogma involving an all powerful being/creator, that isn't something my mind accepts. I can tolerate him talking about it because it's a different viewpoint than my own and it's important to expose myself to those things, but I won't be a "convert" or whatever.

Who the heck has problems with dancing these days? Other than twerking anyway...

That and the administration positions in these same universities. They need/want the income these games bring, but they still treat the students like dogshit by requiring vaccines, mandatory testing for those who managed to get a religious exemption, and masks regardless to vaccination status. The brainwashing is still going on behind the scenes, but these games make it seem like students have more freedom than what they actually do in a daily class setting. A number of universities across the country, even in red states, still have it on their websites that if case rates get to a certain threshold that the university will return to 100% online lockdown class format to "quarantine" students and "slow the spread."

The entire system is fucked still, especially since they're almost all beholden to federal dollars. Texas A&M will be requiring all employees to be vaccinated soon because they receive federal dollars (their announcement said to the sum of 2 billion somehow) and so must bend to the federal mandate. This includes students who are doing a work-study program and not just the career adults that work there.

Hillsdale College in Michigan is based. I wrote in with a few questions after finding them and they're very welcoming even though I'm not Christian of any flavor. They said as long as I'm okay with discussions about Christianity or how it affects our country, I should be fine. Since I'm very right-wing, that isn't a problem for me since I can see the influence the religion has on most of our country, even though I'm not a believer.

Most of the private Christian colleges I found in Florida and Texas have it in the open on their website that applicants must be Christian, so that's I'm sure the same as your experience. I have no idea how to find more like Hillsdale, IF there are any.

I thought "double stupid" would end with a comment about how now he's going to end up drinking some of the chemicals he sprayed on the drink and make himself sick anyway.

I've been scrounging hard for a university in Florida that has a good BS degree in economics. I love the weather, I love the sun, and the freedom most people have.

All I've found is that all the schools require this daily psychological fuckery of making you fill out a questionnaire in some app and confirm you don't have symptoms in order to be let on campus. It's treated basically like a training bra for the vaxpass. At basically all areas of the campus they have people near the doors to the building that randomly demand you to show your app saying you've been given green clearance to be on campus that day. It's not even on a basis of filling out the info in the app when you're SICK, it's a constant daily reminder that you're supposed to be afraid and never move on with your life even when you're HEALTHY.

On top of that, they're still doing that crap where if you've been in "close contact" with someone that may have it, then they require you to isolate yourself for 10 days. Isolation isn't healthy. It also fucks with your ability to be a good student, prevents you from attending in-person classes which reduces your ability to learn, and essentially the whole thing makes it so your grades drop due to the disruption. It's built into the app that if you're one of these "close contact" people, it automatically gives you a red icon in their app and the people at the entrances will force you off campus.

They're blocked from mandating masks and vaccines, but there's nothing forcing them to provide the same quality of education as before the virus. They're free to harass students as much as they want and hinder people's learning.

Some of the universities in Texas still have the policy on their website that if they reach a certain threshold of cases that the entire university will go back into hard lockdown and force everything back into online format 100%.

I have no idea where to go. I would ask people here for help and see if anyone knows of a college (private or public) that refuses to play these games, but any time this subject of higher education gets brought up, people just judge and trash on university degrees. Some of us need them to work in our fields. I have no desire to be a female plumber or construction worker. But I have nowhere to turn for help either.

Florida isn't the safe haven I thought it would be as a student. As a free adult that's just going through life, I'm sure most of the state is in a better place than 98% of the country.

They're not searching any of this before they have their kids injected with something. In medicine we have a right to "informed consent." Patients should be informed on an issue before making medical decisions. They should he researching things on their own too and not exclusively depending on a medical doctor to give them all the information. A doctor is a person and people are flawed. Many doctors don't keep up on research and use info that is a decade old.

The parents injecting their kids with this crap are willfully ignorant on this issue. I have no pity for them. They didn't put in the bare minimum level of effort required to properly form an opinion and protect their children. They failed utterly in their responsibility as a parent. They have no one else to blame for that. They made the decision to shrug their shoulders and go along with the narrative and that led to the death of their son. They could have chosen differently, but didn't.

The fine isn't acceptable either. His rights were violated by being ordered to submit to medical treatment or be penalized. They have no right to demand any of that. He never should have had to be put in that situation because the government has no right to force this "choice" on anyone in the first place. Making something available to people is one thing, it's completely different when people are penalized for making the "wrong" decision.

There shouldn't be any means to punish someone for refusing to allow their human rights to be violated. All the state governments have to do now is introduce a fine that nobody can afford and then you're back facing forced medical procedures or prison time because you won't follow the "law."

Edit: He was financially penalized for refusing medical treatment. How is this so different from the Obamacare crap? People being financially penalized for refusing to submit to the medical industry. Obamacare supposedly was to improve the public health too, so it's the same excuse as the vax mandates and also this 1905 ruling potentially introduces a financial penalty like not having insurance did. How was Obamacare unconstitutional and forced vaccines aren't? One way or another we're all paying for this crap and we're expected to participate even if we object. Opening the door to financial penalty is no more acceptable than the mandates in the first place.

The mRNA vaccines are gene editing. They're justifying forcing this on us all claiming it protects everyone else from a virus.

Develop an mRNA "vaccine" that fixes the gene predisposing people to being gay, make it mandatory at birth, and prevent a portion of child sexual abuse that happens in the country.

See how that one flies with leftists.

Most are doing the crap where you have to get vaxed or apply for an exemption. IF somebody gets an exemption, then you still have to mask and test weekly or twice weekly. Exemptions aren't being given out like they should be, so a number of students are still being required to be vaxed because their application got rejected for whatever reason.

For the last 6 years I thought that problem was only in my area since I'm in Michigan with all the auto companies. I'm not a car person, so I thought it was something to do with the American "trendy" cars being sold in higher quantities around here, but other areas still had color from other foreign imports.

What happened to all the colors we used to use for cars? Blue, yellow, green, and shades in between... they're all gone and just this soulless grayscale is left over.

I'm still pissed over that.

I was half through my degree after completing my required core classes at community college (a third the cost of the big uni up the road) and was supposed to transfer when everything went online for a year. Now I have nowhere to transfer to because everybody requires the vax or constant testing if you got on your knees and begged for an exemption from participating in human experimentation.

I'm 33. I don't have time to be messing around waiting for them to quit playing games. Nobody shows any signs of relenting though, so my future is just gone.

The US is about the rights and freedoms of the individual. Businesses can fall in line and do what they want AFTER our rights have been respected.

I will never trade government tyranny for corporate tyranny.

There's still a problem in that the court thinks any business with a "good enough reason" can still force vaccinations. This statement isn't the win some people think it is. NO business has the right or privilege of requiring medical treatment or testing of its employees.

This ruling then is still supporting the basic idea that if a business sees a need, then they can still mandate even without OSHA ordering it. Waitresses come face to face with a lot of people in a short time. Boom. Waitresses are now required to be vaccinated because the business felt it has a "good enough reason."

ALL compulsory medical treatment and testing should be reinforced as illegal. None of it was legal before, but our courts have been flawed for a very long time. The door that allowed this all to happen, mandatory vaccinations for things like MMR, are how we got here. Those mandates never should have been allowed to stand.

This is the bodily autonomy rights equivalent of red flag laws. They're unconstitutional as fuck, but the courts allow it and different groups of the population support it.

Their "expert" sounded more like an intern imo. Maybe this is just what we get when we find recent grads in professional fields that got their degree through floor-level university standards and fluff diversity classes.

He didn't seem like he actually understood the meaning of, or was comfortable with, the technical words that he was using.

I agree. I think this was their goal since last spring into early summer. Their first active, but secretish, step is when the first recall was noticed that was issued by the FDA for the PCR tests. Christmas break is some sort of goal date, but we'll see if that deadline is actually met.

What I don't think they counted on was the sheer number of people who are STILL refusing to take the vax at this point in the game (if you want to use that term). I don't know if they've whittled the pureblood numbers down low enough to actually be able to hit that final "vaxpass or you don't get to work" lever and take a huge step towards a future that no American wants.

It's not about WANTING to get tested. People are still submitting to the demands of employers and colleges/universities that require proof of negative test in order to show up in person if someone is unvaxed. People are choosing to submit to extortion demands in order to continue working or attending class.

These tests with a high false positive rate (that even we knew about over a year ago alongside the PCR test problems) are being used to keep the "pandemic" going because people keep conceding ground. They figure it's reasonable to submit to unconstitutional invasions into their person with these tests because "at least I don't have to get vaccinated with this 'option.'"

People in large mass aren't ready to put their livelihoods on the line for their rights yet, so they're helping the enemy continue to hurt us all in the mean time. Tests like this are some of the tools used to keep this whole farce going.

This clip got the name of the treatment stuck in my head. Figured I'd share this gold. Retro Trump commercial somebody made from one of his updates where he was pushing the name of what he had.

Idk why there's a Lincoln Project logo in the upper left since it's not on their channel, but just ignore that and enjoy the clip.

It's the chicken or the egg issue then.

Will the jury be stupid af because they're stupid af or will they be stupid because they were intimidated. If it's the former, then I agree this is a strategy by the judge to help the appeal. But if it's the latter, then the judge is helping to make the situation bad enough to where Kyle would need to appeal in the first place whereas he may not have needed to appeal if they weren't intimidated.

I'm going to ask here since I asked people in person and other sites, but received no real answer.

Why the fuck didn't the judge sequester the jury as soon as they were chosen?

Even if pics are taken of them, they shouldn't know some asshats are threatening to riot or go after them if there's a "not guilty" verdict. Law enforcement needed to step up and investigate this too even though we know the FBI won't, so send another group of law enforcement.

States were starting to reopen fully like dominos after Texas did it following Florida. It had been that way for about 1.5-2 months and the data was showing that was the way to handle it because the case and death stats in those reopened states plummeted and held steady. We were talking about it like nuts on here and blasting the news for lying and claiming it was getting worse in the reopened states. This site was linking site after site from these states and their data tracking.

It was after it was clear that lockdowns were harmful, but before normies could catch up, that the vaccines were finally made available to more than just the initial "at-risk" groups. It was their desperate attempt to make sure the virus fear narrative didn't fade away in entire states rather than be limited to smaller cities/towns.

The lockdowns were in the process of ending completely in certain states and spreading to others. There was no way this all was going to last for another year. They had to push the vaccines to keep the virus fearporn in the forefront of people's attention.

They've been doing that for decades with other drugs, illness "studies", and treatments. Otherwise I agree with you.

There's a different meme site I frequent and it supports free speech still too, but much like Fight Club, it doesn't exist.

Anyway, because of the free speech part there's some mouthbreathingly retarded people sometimes. One guy tried claiming that being physically fit like an athlete is actually puts MORE stress on the body because of the constant exertion, which increases their risk of dying to heart attack compared to those who aren't active.

Lefties can rationalize anything.
