    Why I am not planning on taking the vaccine any time soon, if ever

    My body probably doesn't need it. But I'm not prepared to cause suffering and death through spreading a preventable disease. So I'll be taking the vaccine recommended by the vast majority of health care professionals. Keeps me safe, keeps others safe. You do you.

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    Limbaugh is more subtle than a clown like Glenn Beck. But whilst he's subtle he still contributes to a toxic narrative, and has a role in repeating and amplifying lies. It's important to consider the context in which comments are made. "Birtherism" was a conspiracy theory. Some believed it...

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    Thank you for the gentle reply Wade. I'm genuinely curious to understand your perspective. I guess what constitutes "a good economy" is subjective, if we're going to ignore the abundance of economic growth and performance indicators. But your personal perspective is valid, and if you felt you...

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    I asked you a simple question - whether lies told about Obama upset you as much as the lies about Trump upset you. You've dismissed progress under Obama as inconsequential, and lies told about Obama as irrelevant. It seems your outrage is selective. I agree with this sentiment. I also don't...

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    Genuine question Wade. Were you equally upset about the constant lies about Obama? Ranging from him being the literal anti-christ, setting up death squads to kill elderly relatives, being a foreign born muslim terrorist etc. Were you equally happy about the very good economy he and Biden developed?

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    I'm stunned to learn that students of social science follow progressive politics. I would have thought that it would be a hotbed of conservative christianity. Next you'll tell me that military academies aren't the bastions of liberal free thinking I've always assumed them to be....

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    If a phone makes someone a journalist, most of the planet would have a press pass. Next time me and the boys break into a civic building having killed and injured the security guards protecting it, I must remember to waggle my phone about so people recognize me as a freedom loving patriot and...

    I'm sure Trump can pre-pardon that as well

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    A gentle reminder (lest we forget) that Trump is repeating the same "voter fraud" claims he made back in 2016. This article from 2016 could have been written yesterday - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-us-2016-37673797 Any of the below sound familiar? All 2016... "Former New York Mayor...

    Epicenter of Pandemic in Latin America now becoming Argentina

    You're right about optics. You might not guess from that chart, that 15k died from the 2003 heatwave, and 31k died from COVID.

    Buying a RED camera here

    It would be cheaper to travel to NY and buy the camera & B+H than buy it in Argentina.

    2 tourists shot outside Faena Hotel P. Madero

    What would you miss most if you left Argentina?

    As someone who left and went back to the UK, I miss the weather, my friends, eating out casually all the time, the fact that people aren't working themselves into the ground, the pace of life, the steak and ice cream, the friendly interactions I had with a dozen people each day. I miss Buenos...

    Now Police Can Ask You For The Dni You Don't Have

    This is true. But remaining vigilant isn't unreasonable. The security services have a well documented history of incompetence, overreach, corruption, torture and murder. It's public knowledge that a large number of military personnel transitioned to the security services during the post...

    Because if there's one group of people you can trust to use a tool correctly and legally its the Argentine security services.

    Starbucks Vs A Good Old Cafeteria.

    Nothing better than a cortado served in a old school cafe, from a career waiter pushing 60, impeccably mannered, and all the time in the world to sit in your elegant surroundings and watch the world go by. Sadly, I've drank more cups of burned brown filth than I care to mention. So whilst I'm...

    Anyone Used The Service "miami A Tu Casa" ??

    Entrusters is a safer bet. Peer to peer delivery, much more reputable and money goes into escrow so no concerns over it disappearing into the ether. A bit less smuggly, since it's based on the ability of tourists to bring in a few extra things, as opposed to a company offering to bypass customs...
