I used to visit an atheist blog all the time and I always got ads for Jesus-fish stickers.

 -k

When I listen to Sam Harris’ Youtube stuff I always get Jesus $hit for the ads too...   I am definitely not their target audience....

I once bought a chocolate Jesus fish for easter in the southern USA.  True story.  It was delicious.

After posting about banning guns, I am getting gun accessory ads!   Haha!    Karma hates us pinko commie anti-gun bitches!

Without naming names...

I will never forget on the old site a poster tried to discredit another poster by mocking their link for being full of ads for lubricants.  A third party had to point out that the ads are Google generated.

I clicked and the page was full of ads for office supplies and accounting software.

I laughed my butt off.

Real question - would you eat a chocolate swastika ?  I don't know if I would.

I ate one today.  I made it out of these. 

I wanted to see if it tasted any different to the time I made a Stonehenge and a Hagia Sophia out of them.  It didn't.

Why not? It would have to be dark chocolate. I wouldn't buy one though.

That's a great question.  If given as a gift....I'm not sure.  I might do it just to say I did.  Something to tell the grandkids.

If you snap one side of it off and throw it away...is it still a swastika?  Could you then eat it?

Wouldn't it need to be white chocolate?

So we missed the most successful example of outrage culture: a handful of marginal members of the public, egged on by vested interests make an outrageous protest WITH GUNS and influence the conversation.

Trump called the protests'meaningful'.

You’ll have to be more specific.

The Michigan Crew is what I am talking about.

People protesting because the stores are closed, or possibly because the stores they own are closed.

The 3 classes are reflected thusly:

- The poor working class people who have to risk their lives because people want their Arby's
- The middle class people who can work from home but want to risk going to Arby's once a week or so
- The wealthy and above who own franchises, or stock in the consortium that owns the chain

I mentioned it in a different thread.  I think that an armed insurrection should be met with a hail of bullets from authorities. 

If people showed up to any legislature in Canada with guns, they’d be immediately arrested, and if they resisted, probably shot.

The only reason they’re protesting is because it’s well-funded by right-wing groups.

Trudeau’s failed leadership and failed preparedness and response should outrage everyone.  Not only did Trudeau fail to maintain a proper supply, he’s now forced to lower the standard for importing PPE from China!  What a disgrace.

Depleted national stockpile leaves Canada reliant on China for masks, gowns and other supplies during pandemic

Health Canada has temporarily lowered its standard for the importation PPE to meet demand

Anti-herd is the new anti-vaxx.  Sweden did it right.
