Wikipedia Co-founder: “Wikipedia Is Badly Biased”

Uncyclopedia logoWikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger published an article on his blog, “Wikipedia Is Badly Biased”, on 2020-05-14.  He begins by stating,

Wikipedia’s “NPOV” is dead.  The original policy long since forgotten, Wikipedia no longer has an effective neutrality policy. There is a rewritten policy, but it endorses the utterly bankrupt canard of journalistic “false balance,” which is directly contradictory to the original neutrality policy. As a result, even as journalists turn to opinion and activism, Wikipedia now touts controversial points of view on politics, religion, and science.... [Read More]

Queue-Anon

If we wait for the Dem governors to tell us how we may reopen the country, it won’t be only “breadlines“  we see.  It’ll be dining lines, gym lines, clothes shopping lines…Queues everywhere!  Because, if you close off half or more of the seats in an establishment, or mandate that stores and other establishments maintain huge patches of customer-free space—

then necessarily, Americans will hafta queue up, wait in line.  To do, or buy anything.  To enter, or leave,  anywhere.... [Read More]

Can we just ask Dr Fauci to retire?

Ok, so a week or two ago the illustrious Dr Fauci was arguing with Dr. Rand Paul, about the risk of opening up too fast.

NOW, he is saying that if we don’t open up it would cause irreputable damage“. First he says no mask, then he says to wear a mask. Can we just ask Dr. Fauci to just retire and move along, because he’s been in his position for over 30 years and just might be a bit out of touch with trying to run the country during a pandemic. The is proably the best move at this point because as insane as this lockdown has been. Putting so much power into the hands of a tiny doctor from Brooklyn was a MASSIVE mistake.... [Read More]

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now says the coronavirus “does not spread easily” through touching surfaces or objects

Can we stop being required to wear a freaking mask when going to the store then. This is ridiculous. I only wear a mask when I HAVE TO. That means as soon as I step into the store until I step out of the door. I also resent having to wear it the entire time, because I KNEW, that it is a pointless gesture that has nothing to do with preventing the spread of the virus.

At least this can shut the uptight busybody Karen’s up. You know those ladies who have appointed themselves the Mask Police on Next Door.... [Read More]

“Clown in the Graveyard”

What does that phrase mean to you?  Think for a minute before you read on: it does  mean something to you, doesn’t it?
When I first encountered the phrase, it didn’t.  But within a few minutes it hit me: my best friend volunteered as a hospital clown!  And now he’s dead!  

It actually felt like a revelation,  even though I was just reading a Wiki article about various techniques used by people performing “cold readings” in front of an audience.  Imagine the effect it would have  if I’d been part of an audience to a psychic performance: a group of people probably inclined to believe in the phenomenon of ESP, (or at least curious about it, else they wouldn’t be there). Is that him?  Is he trying to get through to me? ... [Read More]

An Understanding of Libertarianism

No one person can say to have the entire knowledge of an ideology understood and synthesized such that he or she could definitively define what that ideology stands for. In any set of political principles there will always be debate about what those principles actually mean and even what those principles actually are. It is said that William F. Buckley Jr. did that for the Conservative Movement, and yet there are still folks like Irving Kristol, Pat Buchanan, and Pat Robertson who could be considered contributors to the definition of “Conservative.” There are certainly figure heads who seem more worthy of praise and discipleship, but this does not ultimately define anything. It is merely a resemblance of a high school popularity contest. This is true of libertarianism.

I have been told that there are all sorts of libertarian ideals, from the contradictory Left libertarians to the more expected anarcho-capitalists. There is no doubt a wide range of clowns from which to pick in an attempt to hold that clown up as the epitome of libertarian. (“What is Aleppo?” comes to mind in this regard.) And, although I am ill equipped to flush out for you, dear readers, what each strand of libertarian stands for and why one strand is superior to the others, I do feel comfortable explaining to you why the particular group of self described libertarians I respect are deserving of yours as well. I will call this group Misesian Libertarians.... [Read More]

Sharyl Attkisson Reports on the politics around Hydroxychloroquine

Sharyl Attkisson did a great report on the politics surrounding the drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Remdesivir. It’s a report worth watching how there might be financial incentives in pushing one drug over the other (huge shock).

Also (and this is my opinion) it is possible media companies can be persuaded to push a certain story regarding a drug due to pharmaceutical companies who advertise on those media channels may be producers of the drugs. There are way too many conflicts of interest going on for my comfort level.... [Read More]
