If he was hunting black people, why did he shoot white people?
Because the narrative is, "Everyone who opposes us is a racist," that's why. Nothing as inconvenient as the truth must stand in the way of the narrative!

This links to a...thing...of unprecedented stupidity. It's an editorial or something published on some commie site:
And the reason that the world is organized that way, obviously, is for the profit of the people who own the stores and the factories. So you get to the heart of that property relation, and demonstrate that without police and without state oppression, we can have things for free.Sure! Because that iPhone you have, Apple didn't have to pay people to design and build it, and doesn't have to pay for the materials and parts that go into it; no! Tim Cook just wanders into his Magic iPhone Forest (stolen from the Ios indians in 1836) and picks the ripe ones, then has them put into a fancy box and sells them for a thousand dollars each.
Likewise, the car you drive wasn't manufactured by Honda; they went into their car mine and dug it out of the earth, gave it a quick wash, and sold it to you.
The things those stores sell, the people that own those stores don't pay for the merchandise they sell or anything. It just comes down from on high in a truck driven by an archangel!
The text from the commie article that's blockquoted in that post displays such an abject ignorance of economics that it leaves me speechless. I mean, just being a marxist means you already don't understand the first thing about what profit is for, why it's a vital necessity for the proper function of any economic system--but this turkey is well past that, into a delusional weirdland where nobody needs to work for anything but we'll still have the biggest economy in the world.

The unchecked criminality, the rioting, the looting, all that horseshit, is accelerating flight from the cities. "I'll take 'Tax base collapse' for $600, Alex."

It's been in development for a decade, it's already hideously expensive, and the price just went up another thirty percent. SLS is a typical government program, in other words.
But they're almost ready to try running a static test on a prototype! It's only been nine years and twenty-odd billion dollars.

Inconvenient facts about COVID-19.
1) it's not really new, being highly similar to SARS
2) There is pre-existing immunity out there, partly because of SARS, partly because many common cold virii are coronavirii
3) the models are all shit
4) If someone is exposed to the virus and doesn't get sick, he's immune to it DUH

I think it's time to try to get that nap.
