Is Alan Smithee a real person? I've seen several of his films. He isn't, but only because we know he's a pseudonym. What about William Shakespeare, William Tell, King Arthur or Robin Hood? People accept the possibility that they may not be real. This only comes up when supernatural claims are involved. It's actually not easy to totally fabricate someone, and there's usually

We've seen this before: "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Führer." Same old story. Only this time, we know how the story will end -- if we don't do anything. I like this story better :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovwHkb1wEfU&t=180 What is America to me? A name, a map, or a flag I see? A certain word, "democracy"? What is America to me? The hous

Hate is hate. You can't dress it up with faith. If you are going to hate, just hate. Stop pretending that it's something else. Don't claim that "sky daddy" is "making" you hate. You hate because you want to, not because someome or something told you to. It's all on you. *YOU* are throwing out your own child. *YOU* are denying rights to people you don't

After reading all the comments, I'd like to mention a few things. The white / non-white racial is so embedded in American society that many find it difficult to believe that it is not natural. I know people from the UK and Europe who are astonished at the level of racial polarization in the USA. It's not that they don't know about racism -- it's that it is so prevalent and pervasive that i

Here's a picture of a couple of cats. https://media-be.chewy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/29140851/orange-calico-cats-main.jpg One cat is a calico cat and the other is an orange tabby cat.

COVID denial is a cult. The virus is real, it is deadly, and the risk of severe illness and death is significantly reduced by being vaccinated and following basic, common sense practices like wearing a mask, social distancing, and personal hygiene. Or, in other words... ******************************************* ** "If you play with fire, you'll get burnt." ** **************

COVID-19 is an airborne respiratory illness caused by a virus. Wearing a mask, washing your hands, and avoiding contact with people in confined spaces and crowds will help prevent you from getting infected and infecting others. COVID vaccines keep you from being infected or becoming seriously ill if you do become infected, and the vast majority of people who are now becoming infected and ho

You've probably seen a scene like this: A grandmother and her granddaughter are in a store, and Grandma asks the granddaughter "to tell the coloured sales girl" to come help her. The granddaughter cringes and tells her, "Grandma, we don't use that word any more. That's a bad word" and the grandmother doesn't understand what's wrong. The words "black" and "

Fixed it for ya. Discrimination has existed in some form or another in just about all human societies throughout history. In the ancient world, class was the barrier in society, not "race." The Romans didn't care about what you looked like, where you came from, or your ethnic background — if you became "Roman." What mattered was your social class. There's a famous

Listen, children, and you shall hear Great tales of people who were not here And stories of places that never appeared. Sorry, Mormons. There were no horses, no mules, no draft animals at all in pre-Columbian North America.

This isn't like religion where you can just make up stuff. This is reality. Why are all the people who are not vaccinated and taking such "alternative" treatments sick and dying by the thousands?

Ivermectin, in whatever form, will not kill the virus and prevent or cure COVID-19. That's a fact. Wear a mask and wash your hands, reduce your risk of exposure, and get vaccinated and boosted. That's what is going to save your life :)

There's no "both sides" or alternative reality here. This is mother nature and science. Worms are parasites that live inside another animal and feed off of them. Worms and bacteria are living organisms. A virus is not really alive. Worms and bacteria can reproduce on their own. A virus cannot. A virus is just a collection of molecules that floats around and doesn't do a
