What? How many guns in the USA and we are still in lockdown? It isn't guns that will get people their freedom but guts will. Those folks down there have guts.

I always hated interpreted/captions.

I figure if I can't understand a word they're saying, they may even be trying to tell a bad joke about a priest, a buddhist, and a jew riding a camel and I'd never know the person doing the captions wasn't trying to lie about whatever the writing says.

So you are saying that every time people in other countries refuse to speak the only approved language, American, god kills a kitten?

Sadly, I have to agree. America has been an incredibly well-armed country for decades, yet we still have allowed all manner of tyranny to grow. People need to stop focusing on guns and start worrying about pushing back against tyranny.

The CCP virus told the world how folks react to tyranny, say it's for their safety and they will lock themselves in their own homes. People are afraid of death, that tool let's tyranny grow.

The winners write the history books anyway so all we ever get is a half truth, even from the side we support.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

If you can't figure out what it means to have allies in today's world then I can't help you.

Apparently the video was of a private meeting. Supposedly Bolsonaro is demanding the defense ministry arm the population against communists who he says are using coronaflu as an excuse to install tyranny.
