So in other words, you claim the vaccine trial now has 6.72 billion people in it? So where is the placebo group?
And show us the record of outcomes for both groups?
Similarly, we are all part of a gigantic trial into the long term effects of cellphone radiation on the human body.

Unfortunately they normally only get identified much later because The Narrative cheered them on.
That awkward moment when they realize they are "thinking" with/using their fee-fees.
Or/alternatively as Geoff.D put it, when they realize they are "a group thinker".

My summer job ... nearly 20 years ago

So an interesting thing happened today. A Web site has published an article saying that I once worked for the CIA.

CNN received a call from the Web site yesterday informing us that they were going to publish this story. They didn't have all their facts straight, and I've received some questions about it, so I decided to just write this blog post, hoping to get the facts out there.

As a college student, I had a number of summer jobs and internships, including working at the CIA. Keep in mind, we are talking about nearly 20 years ago. The Bangles "Walk Like An Egyptian" was on the radio. I was 19 years old, and like many college students was curious about a variety of careers.

There was a flyer for the CIA in my college career counseling office, and I applied for a summer job. I was a political science major and was interested in serving my country.

For a couple months over the course of two summers, I worked at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. There are reporters who've been in the military, others who've interned on Capitol Hill while they were in college.

I know the CIA may sound more exotic and mysterious, but it was actually pretty bureaucratic and mundane, at least the little bit that I saw of it. By the end of the second summer, I realized it was not a place I wanted to work after college.

I've told all my employers about it over the years, but have chosen not to talk about it publicly. When I began to travel overseas to war zones as a reporter, I realized that some Jihadist might not understand that what people do for summer jobs in college doesn't mean they make a career out of it.

Oh, yeah, in case you're interested, after I graduated college, I briefly worked as a waiter, but I decided not to make a career out of that job either.

I hope not everyone eats up this garbage excuse he conjured up .... suppose nearly everyone does believe him, and that's why we find ourselves "waist-high" in this Covid hoax

.... is he on his knees? :ROFL:

I seriously doubt doubt whether Cooper's sexuality has anything to do with it.

you didn't .... clever clever ...... :love: ... I was referring to him kneeling in the water, but your comment does illustrate the methods used.... you've been at this "trivialization" for a while then?

You should also point to the "hidden hand", ..... really funny ... no, he is not playing with himself, the "concealed hand" is a known masonic symbol. Why would Cooper hold his hand under water? Unless he is trying to convey a message?

But then again ... maybe I'm biased?

Anyway, think this applies to you ....
The auto troll: It tries to distract users who express themselves on a certain topic and tries to involve them in a conversation. It usually does this with contradictory statements, which causes the user to retaliate. This distracts the user from the original conversation, and the new conversation becomes polemic and heated. With this method, bots and/or "paid misinformation agents" can easily prevent users from exchanging content.

But it's the wrong hand. "Mano sinistra", not "mano destra" as we Freemasons say.

Agreed. "Group think" is the big problem. People need to become individuals, not clones.
