Honestly I’d lower it to 3k per month because most aren’t even making that.

10k is generous! That’s a lot higher than most people who have jobs. The bar is very low. 10k is not a low bar - that’s a lot of money for most people

The concept is right. Numbers may differ but message stands and I agree.

Internet gave everyone a voice. Most should keep that voice to themselves. Poor/ broke “financial advisors”, marketing gurus who never ran any marketing agency, fitness advice from a a fat person who “I read a book”. You get my drift…



be real people. Add real value or GTfO.

My heart is racing at the moment. I was literally inches away from getting run over. I was crossing a street when I had the right of way and a speeding car came racing up a hill, blew through the intersection which I was crossing and when he saw me, lost control of his car. Luckily I stepped slightly to the right and he swerved to the left. Stopping right at my feet.

Just in shock at the moment. Things could've gone totally different.

That's the butterfly effect. You will now go on to potentially cure cancer or solve world peace.

Oh, and the other you in the parallel universe might be a little dead. Or..

He gets heavily injured, makes a full recovery against all odds, AND goes on to cure cancer AND solves world peace.

Life sure works in mysterious ways, doesn't it?

Almost a big brawl shit was thrown out front of CMFEAU construction union for him not fighting mandatory JAB in Melbourne.

1:50 is where they start throwing shit at them.

They were throwing $5 notes at him and calling him a sell-out aswell.
They are continuing to march, it is getting bigger and they are not stopping.

Jesus!

Jesus things have turned very ugly at CFMEU. Entire front has been trashed. Windows smashed. Crowd throwing projectiles. Setka going on 3aw and not responding to crowds seems to have made things much worse. These are unbelievable scenes. There's no coming back from this.

Setka calling them extremists on 3aw lit a match inside a very volatile tinderbox. It's very ugly now. Cops are about to get involved. Still not over yet. Some at the front trying to stop people storming into the building.

All after they got sold out by the bloke and said this on air below.

The “extremists” are the ones shutting down society and putting people in camps!

when I die I want this kind of funeral.

EDIT: Turn on the music to really experience the video.
I got really confused when they brought out the lion dances...as a Chinese myself, I have never seen lion dance at funerals except in occasions of happiness like opening new business or New Year.

Then I found out that these kinds of 'lion outfits' are white in colour...Southern Lions.
Inspired by a Three Kingdoms general, Ma Chao, who always wore a white armband in war to mourn his father and brother who got killed by Cao Cao, warlord of the state of Wei. Typically used for the funeral of a Master or important head.

What got me more confused were the cheerleaders and Taiwan military honor guard...at this rate, I wonder who's really ruling Taiwan lol.

Taiwan is still far more free than the CCP-controlled mainland China.

Don't let the meme fool you...

Be safe man, hopefully with enough grassroots pressure, there will be some change *for the better*.

What did I miss? Clue me in here please. Who’s putting who into camps?

is this people protesting peacefully turning into a riot? Are the stores being destroyed and business owners won’t have insurance coverage? Or some isolated buildings of government?

I don’t watch news. But this looks bad.

Australia has "remote quarantine camps."

That's the tip of the iceberg in Australia, one of the strictest countries during this whole shitshow.

Some cultures have belief that the death is a new beginning.

Love Scott Adams.

He's absolutely right, the vaccines do work.

BUT, that's not really the point.

The authoritarian government and totalitarian laws are the issue.

Creating an argument that your opponent is not making = straw man fallacy, which is all we see in the news today.

The straw man fallacy is also all over "fact check" websites.

I’m still confused about Australia- who are they rounding up? Is this like the nazi final solution or something else? I can use Google … but then… I’m already here ;)

Well, it's not quite there yet, but it's basically anyone who has refused to take the vaccines.

We are already experiencing a division of "us" and "them" and there are mainstream news hosts as well as world leaders suggesting that if you decide not to get this vaccine, then you will not be able to "participate in the economy" and that you could be denied medical care.

That is the real issue at hand, in my opinion.

The vaccines work, (at risk) people should get them, but if you don't, you shouldn't be treated like a "cockroach of society" like one of the first stages of genocide...

Rwanda, the Holocaust, it's always the same pattern.

Blame everything on "the other people," treat them like second class citizens, and then commit mass atrocities.

We are somewhere beyond step 1 of that, actually.

My favorite Rand quote:

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”​


Keep pushing!
