And this wasn't a "skyscraper," being only 47 stories tall, and this was one that was not only a records storage facility, filled with paper, but one that also had 42,000 gallons of diesel, unlike others fires. Also, the roof and steel frame was damaged by falling debris, unlike other fires. Need I go on?
It didn't collapse the same way as buildings 1 or 2, with the upper floors pancaking the lower floors (or what you presume was a controlled demo). Firefighters tried to save it, but got pulled back when it because obvious that it couldn't be done. The steel beams expanded in the heat, and it collapsed.
This is actually bigger news than you'd think.
As much as I like the meme, building 7 burned for 8 hours before it collapsed, and had 42,000 gallons of fuel in it for back up generators because it was a federal headquarters of several agencies.
[edit: I've argued ad infinitum with people about 9/11. You're wasting your time, and mine. The real 9/11 conspiracy was that Bush let it happen and Bush/Obama covered for the Saudis afterwards. I'm not responding anymore about WTC7, thanks!]
Our freedoms rest on four boxes:
As much as I love Dixie... the origin of the Democrat Party in America was the continuation of slavery, the ultimate fascism.
Yea, and this just furthers the exodus to alt tech like Gab, or even Telegram. I don't see how this is a big deal either way?
The Dark Age papacy barely could extend any political power beyond Rome. The only power the Catholic church had at the time was cultural, i.e., Europe (mostly) had a shared faith. And Charlemagne was a just and fair sovereign. If we could bring him back from the dead, catch him up on things, and put him in charge of France and Germany, the world would be a far better place than it is today.
I think you are making the mistake of putting your 21st century morality onto the 800s. Comparing early midevil Europe to zionism is just silly. You're stretching so hard to find some sort of jew connection, but it's just not there.
I suppose we will have to just agree to disagree on the Armenian Genocide.
Catholics weren't, and aren't, saints. There is a reason why there is the sacrament of confession. Lots of bad along with the good.
That said, Christianity is what led to modern pseudo-equality and the eventual end of serfdom and slavery, because the premise behind it is that all people are made in the image of God. Only Christian Europe, with many fits and starts, ended slavery and then forced the rest of the world to do the same.
That's why it was reeled back a bit, just my theory, because being made with aborted babies the religious had a very reasonable shot at an exemption, and thus they didn't want it to be the main shot everybody was pushed to get.
Agreed. The trial is to get her put away, and isolated, and not able to cause any damage, not to expose the sordid filth.
I can't wait for the 4chan autists to comb through this and give us the juicy bits.
The Armenian Genocide wasn't a "madness of crowds" situation? Okay, that's just wrong on many, many levels. As for the Salem Witch Trials, it's pretty much a textbook case, like tulip bulb mania or a stock bubble.
As for the Dark Ages. Jews were not in control of anything in the Western Roman Empire, let alone barbarian controlled Western Europe after the fall of the empire. Hell, they weren't even physically present in Europe at that point.
I wonder why there has been no bipartisan push to discard FOIA
Thanks. I suspected there was more to the story, thus the "appear" in the title.
Still, things don't appear to be going smoothly for them.
Some scientists have speculated that the Nile turning red in Egypt for the Book of Exodus was by a huge amount of a red bacteria, which produced a foul smell as many bacteria often do. I forgot the species of it. These bacteria sucked up the oxygen, killing the fish. To an ancient, without a microscope, it could indeed appear to be the Nile turning to blood.
Remember, God can, and does, use natural phenomena, properly timed, as miracles.
I refuse to engage in that level of dehumanization, really the sin of excessive solipsism, with the people you refer too. That's doing to them the same they do to the "unvaxxed" as "not deserving of health care/food/freedom, etc. etc."
NPC is just a good descriptor, that's all, I think they really are people. A baby is a person, similarly.
That said, I agree that they don't think for themselves. Thus, as was pointed out by others in this thread, we need the levers of power to program them the way we want them to be.
I can't really disagree.
That's partially the point Bret was making. The "lived experience" as undeniable proof of X or Y, despite all evidence to the contrary, was indeed born out of fake news or propaganda. Or in fairness, perhaps one anecdote by the black guy about getting pulled over by the cops gets spun into "all cops are racist" stuff and "the man" is out to get him. The person may actually have been pulled over by the cops, but that's about it.
The irony is that my lived experiences, or Eric Clapton's, or anyone who had a bad reaction to the jab, is being downplayed as not real, or trivial, via the same outlets that told you in 2019 that "lived experiences" were the ultimate evidence of anything, no matter what statistics Ben Shapiro would bring to the table telling you cops shoot more white people per capita or some shit like that.
I think we are talking past each other, because I'm not clear what I mean. By "collective walking back of things" I mean situations where there is a collective paranoia (Salem Witch Trial or COVID or Japanese internment, Armenian Genocide, etc. etc.) where society gets right up to the point where it goes insane, but then some people stand up for what's right and the herd doesn't run off the cliff. Can you think of examples? The examples I list are where it did go off the rails.
The examples you list are ones were shit did go off the rails, and things had to be picked up later, though I disagree with the Dark Ages as an example of anything other than the collapse of Roman Empire via bad luck combined with stupid policies.
I suppose you're right, but I would qualify it with the idea that we are able to share online in forums like this, or even listening to the podcast itself, which prompted the post.
Well, they spoke about this on the podcast. There are very few historical situations, (maybe Jonah and Nineveh?) where once we get to the point where we are at currently, there is some sort of collective walking back of things.
The light of hope, they suggest, is that while many people dutifully took their jabs, endless boosters seems to be the deal breaker for many.
As for me, I don't think it will get that bad (despite your dire predictions) because if they go door to door, the cops, health officials, and military are going to start getting the business ends of guns pointed at them.
It's a good movie.
It's just odd. Really odd. I hope the question mark in the title revealed my skepticism.
