    They should rename themselves: "Bag Of Dicks". I had an account and card, canceled and shredded the card haven't been there since!

    Robin Sage happens every year... nothing new. I think it started early 70's.

    I think they're trying out the hypersonic grenades this year though :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    From a YouTube comment:

    I'm going to help set the record straight about Robin Sage. I used to live in that area, and it is a yearly thing that happens to train new recruits. What they simulate is an attack on US soil, how to handle the threat of the attack, and how to handle the casualties mostly. Both of my now grown kids and their friends participated in this many times over the years while in high school as victims to be treated and rescued. The reason people are flipping out about this is due to the new people that have moved here in that area, and then the story spread as nothing more than fear porn, and the sheep have eaten it up. Again it's been going on for decades, it's for training new cadets in warfare on US soil, and how to help and treat civilians and ones who act as military wounded subjects. People are so fast to act and spread news before getting their story correct.

    This is actually kind of believable. So, in full disclosure, I am diabetic and took the J&J in March. The lot number I received is one of the ones with the lowest reported adverse reactions. I may have gotten lucky. I have been adamant about no vaccine mandates, and I can say that I am not going to even consider a booster. I am not overweight, just have an unfortunate genetic proclivity to being diabetic, so I think I can weather Covid, if I haven’t already. I have even gone as far as not providing any documentation to my employer after they asked. With all this said, I have a PhD and feel like my position on boosters probably throws me into a hesitant category. I get looked at like a cyclops because I won’t wear a mask at work. They can’t make me thanks to a state law. I had lunch yesterday with someone else who also has a PhD and has the exact same feelings. On the other end of this chart is a whole lot of blue collar America who simply says screw this vaccine thing.

    The chart clearly shows that higher education instills group think until one reaches a point of research that enables one to eclipse the group.

    I'm not even sure that higher education trumps common sense. I just got forwarded a memo from a buddy of mine's employer saying NOBODY enters a facility unless they have an N95 mask and that slightly less than 10% of their workforce has tested positive. Then, they have rules for how long you can be around somebody. This shit is just nonsensical at this time. Let's throw absolutely ALL GD logic out the door. The inverse of Spock.

    So they are obviously, for the slow learners, now 100% admitting that the "mask" does ZILCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Un-f-ing believable.

    Add on the people who have "tested positive" numerous times and aren't dead yet, but continually panic.

    It took two generations to "Dumb Down America"... As you can see, it was successful. Common sense is on the "Endangered Species List".

    I disagree sir. :) Common sense is on the critically endangered species list. I'm beginning to wonder if it's actually "extinct in the wild."

  • It is all pointing to immune system damage and immunodeficiency. Severe COVID progresses into pneumonia, and possibly opportunistic bacterial pneumonia and sepsis. Guess what else has the same prognosis track in immunocompromised patients? The seasonal influenza.

    The Canadian government is saying someone made a mistake when they announced they were rescinding the vaccine mandate for cross border commercial truck drivers. As of right NOW, the January 15th deadline is in place. All truck drivers from the U.S. or Canada will have to prove their vaccinated status in order to cross the border.​

    As far as “hypersonic missiles” - they really mean low altitude hypersonic cruise missiles, which would definitely be a huge threat to our carrier groups as they’re currently used. Like said, I’d put my $$$ on Russia/India having the first operational ones with the Brahmos II. They’ve(Russia) had ramjet powered supersonic cruise missiles operational since early 80’s. A scramjet powered one would change the game and make all our above surface vessels/ships highly vulnerable.
    From the photos of the Chinese/NK “hypersonic missiles”, they appear rocket powered. A scramjet missile will have a very distinct kind of wide thin wedge shape.

    We’ve had the ability to make hypersonic rocket powered cruise missiles for decades and decades:
    That ^^ was fckn 1959! Apply todays tech to that and we could have a rocket powered ~Mach 8-10 sea skimmer within a month.

    We’ve also had since the early 2000’s(longgg before China/Russia were building such)working scramjet powered experimental aircraft(potential/probable future missiles…and now possibly even very close to having the genuine article ie a finished missile).
    For whatever reason, we’ve focused our efforts much more elsewhere..? But if we put the necessary resources toward it(assuming we ain’t, and that we actually ain’t secretly doing just that - we could’ve likely had a hypersonic scramjet powered sea/land skimmer already fully operational).

    Again, the scramjet engine is the game changer here… providing much longer range with a smaller missile and consequently lower radar cross section.

    The other cool thing when talking hypersonic missiles.. you don’t necessarily even need explosives on board - the kinetic energy alone provided by such immense velocities is tremendous…along with the penetration ability. They will be devastating weapons when they come on the scene, and no current tech with the ability to intercept them aside from possibly trying to jam their targeting system and cause a miss of the intended target. Provided you even detect them in time to begin such countermeasures, which will be a helluva feat in itself.

    Not just those - it so easy to dwell in the present...he didn't mention the open borders and 2M illegals that don't need to be vaccinated in, he didn't mention closing our Keystone pipeline/killing our energy independence costing thousands of jobs, while given Russia Nord2 so they can now go after Ukraine, giving China access to our power grid again, trying to force states that want more stringent abortion laws to be under federal control, then killing 13young soldiers, all the waste of money of the equipment left in Afghanistan and American lives STILL THERE likely to be at least in the hundreds if not thousands, killing 10 innocents in a drone strike, embarrassing us in front of the Pope and other world leaders, applying two standards of justice...I can go on but I got a headache now.

    I think it’s more likely than not that we already have tech that that beat these hyper sonic missles and that we have similar missles ourselves. We spend billions every year on top secret projects and we squirrel away and don’t release public info about.

    Now they are reporting that the potato is going to use executive action for police reform. I may be wrong, but believe that there is very little he can order in terms of state and local law enforcement. It sounds like anything too radical on his end will cause him to get smacked down again.
