    FDA Gives Full Approval to Pfizer

    In the US, there is a vaccine injury fund. And has been for decades (1986 start) A small amount of all vax sales goes into the fund ($.75 per disease per vax). The fund pays out against vax injuries. Sort of an insurance So while you are correct to say that Pfizer has no liability neither does...

    Complaints to be laid against leading heart surgeon after 'problematic' video on Covid-19 vaccines

    The headline is a tad misleading. And the description is incorrect They are not trying to force the child to do anything The child wants the vax. The parent does not. So when should a child have the ability to choose? My youngest daughter is 15. We have decided to let our daughter make the...

    Watch: White South Africans owe Black people an apology – Malema

    The voters had the power to end it... collectively Collectively they didn't want to. I wanted to.... but we weren't nearly enough. Did we try hard enough? Did we exert pressure hard enough? I don't think so but winning would have been hard

    Watch: White South Africans owe Black people an apology – Malema

    We will never know how well my grandparents, parents or myself would have done elsewhere My grandfather lost out because he opposed apartheid too vigorously in his occupation. I like to believe I would have been OK. Maybe even better. But in the SA context, apartheid gave me relative...

    Watch: White South Africans owe Black people an apology – Malema

    I was speaking for myself. You obviously have nothing personally to apologise for. Perhaps your ancestors do Many whites have gained from history but all we can do is - Acknowledge the advantages - Be good citizens going forward

    Watch: White South Africans owe Black people an apology – Malema

    I was 25 when Mandela was released. Without a doubt, I benefited from a system that white people voted for. I didn't vote for the system but I admit I didn't do enough to oppose it. I am sorry for my insufficient action. However, Malema doesn't represent a remotely sensible position - I stayed...

    Generator or Inverter for residential use?

    Agree with them or not but the City generates a huge electricity surplus after maintenance which it ploughs into other services mainly to benefit the poor. They are pretty open about that. Each service is not ring fenced

    Is it just me or is the Magic Mouse the worst product ever?

    I buy almost anything Apple and I bought one. I don't use it anymore Part of it is my fault. My hands are big and it is way too dainty. It is also not nearly robust enough I was ok with the mouse tracking but don't like the practicality of the gestures on such a frail device On the other hand...

    Cops Caught on Video Holding a Black Army Lieutenant at Gunpoint, Then Pepper-Spraying Him

    Possible. But when they got closer they saw the plates... My point is they failed to de-escalate and just cranked it up. The problem with these debates is it becomes a stupid binary debate. The soldier in the car could have handled things better. Saying that does not mean the cops were good
