British politics[edit]

Unlike what Rob S says, is not rabid (rabies has been locally extinct since 1922), and is not partisan - possibly something to do with the 1313 statute about armour in parliament and the separation distance of the two red lines. Besides there are more examples of this in the US than the UK (with this being a special case). Anna Livia (talk) 23:28, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

I'm assuming you refer to comments I made based upon American experiences with cp:Christopher Steele. Steele was quite an idiot in not understanding anything about the American political system, bureaucracy, media, constitutional rights, the American sense of fair play and even freedom of speech. He evidently thought whatever outrageous crap that must be common currency in UK electoral politics could be duplicated in the United States. Sure, he found kindred spirits among Democrats, the FBI, and journalists, but it all stunk to high heaven from the day he started his bullshit. And the fucking idiots in the Democrat party, Obama administration, and American media today have nothing but damaged careers, or are in denial about the massive fraud perpetrated upon the American people. And Steele to this day believes his rabid partisan lies and nonsense is perfectly acceptable and rational. I conclude the only way such deranged views about people and society is the product of the environment he hails from. nobsFree Roger Stone! 02:19, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
I came to these conclusions after reading the Katheleen Kavalec notes. How a formerly high level intelligence official and heir of the US/UK 'special relationship' that defeated Hitler and the Soviet Union could be so profoundly ignorant of the U.S. political system was stunning. He evidently truly believed the bullshit he dumped in Kathleen Kavalec's lap was perfectly legitimate and acceptable to achieve some political end. Maybe in the UK its acceptable and routine, but here in the U.S. we still do have a few civil servants with integrity. nobsFree Roger Stone! 02:34, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
Your response makes no reference to the systems in the British Isles (ie Parliament, devolved governments in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, the House of Keys, and the governments of Jersey and Guernsey). Anna Livia (talk) 19:49, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
That's bollocks mate. I cannot recall any serious UK politician calling for the imprisonment of their political opponents, not even with the DUP and Sinn Fein who are historically deadly enemies. Neither have I heard a politician mutter anything similar to Pizzgate or QANON. I have no beef with neighbours or friends who vote differently from me and my attitude is typical. Even in the most vicious BREXIT debates did The UK, politicians and public, come close to the partisanship and hatred that is seen in America every day.--Mercian (talk) 03:17, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
Rob, like the rest of the CP crew, know fuck all about Britain or Europe. They watch Steve Turley videos or read websites that are seventeen links removed from the primary source, add the first number they thought of, reverse it, take away six then shoehorn it into whatever position their leaders have adopted today. They are like very stupid Stalinists on magic mushrooms. Humour them. LondonGrump (talk) 06:41, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
(ec) No, I'm referring to the former head of MI6 Russia Desk sitting with a State Department official 30 days before the election, spewing obvious, admittedly, fraudulent partisan bullshit looking for help to rig an election. Now in the UK, elections happen in 30 days; in the US, the FBI, DOJ, and other Departments are restricted from giving the appearance of partisan actions 60 days prior to an election.
Yes, we have our mindless, rabid partisans; but for a former high level intelligence official who thinks bald faced lies and bullshit is going to sway the U.S. Justice Department to violate its own departmental regulations to engage in a conspiracy with foreigners to interfere in an election -- sure, this crap has been routine in the British Empire for decades if not centuries. But that sort of politicking sets us apart from the UK. Yes, we have stupid voters vulnerable to manipulation. No, our federal system is designed to resist such naked outside partisan and ideological interference.
Steele, a foreigner, waltzes into a State Department office and says, "Hey, the election is in 3 weeks. Here's some crap 'we' can use to win for 'our' side." Only a rabidly partisan culture, with values like that engrained in their bureaucracy produces such gangsters - cause the voting public has come to expect and accept it. nobsFree Roger Stone! 07:02, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
Spot on, Rob, spot on. LondonGrump (talk) 18:15, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
Presumably the Republicans who initially employed Steele were utter morons.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 19:10, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
We been over this a thousand times: the Free Beacon employed FusionGPS until the end of March when Trump won enuff delegates; Hillary Clinton picked up the contract then. FusionGPS hired Steele on June 12, 2016. Steele was never employed by any Republican client.
It is bullshit like that -- a steadfast refusal to ever come clean in the face of indisputable facts -- why partisans like yourself can never regain any credibility. Time for some soul searching, my friend. nobsFree Roger Stone! 23:08, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

How much of 'Unparliamentary Language' - [1] and [2] etc has been used in this and related US contexts? Anna Livia (talk) 19:49, 22 March 2020 (UTC)

Rob, you posted that the Democrats are obstructing a stimulus relief package, a package that was passed by the Democratic controlled House but failed in the Republican controlled Senate. I give up, you are not a stupid man, you know what you are posting is deliberately misleading bullshit. --Mercian (talk) 08:16, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
Seems like I was wrong, apologies.--Mercian (talk) 12:00, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
That's very noble of you, and much appreciated. nobsFree Roger Stone! 23:10, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Two metres[edit]

Conservapedia proven right!

The UK government keeps saying people should keep 2m apart and all I can think of is Ed Poor's masterpiece from long ago. Avida Dollarsher again 09:10, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

It is as the prophesy foretold!!!!
Also: cf: "Conservapedia Proven Right." RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 15:24, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
The jingle, if anyone wants it:
'A metre's three-foot-three.
It's longer than a yard you see.'
(The litre and kilogram versions on request.) Anna Livia (talk) 19:54, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
Hahaha. Years ahead of his time. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 02:17, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
'A statement of fact cannot be insolent' (though CP's interpretation of it may be). Anna Livia (talk) 12:53, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
Shouldn't it be
'A metre's three-foot-three-ish.
It's longer than a yard you see. Ish.'
51.6.140.42 (talk) 17:24, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
That was how the ditty went.
'Two and a quarter pounds of jam
Weigh about a kilogram'
'A litre of water's
A pint and three quarters'

For most people a sufficiently close approximation: and the UK is prepared to combine measurements (rubber bands being 6 inches long, 3 millimetres wide). Anna Livia (talk) 18:19, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

The actual version of the metre rhyme was: "a metre measures three foot three; it's longer than a yard, you see". 2A00:23C6:548B:E500:6843:BCB1:B495:1E3E (talk) 15:06, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Ditties evolve - and the key point is the numbers. Is there a ditty for Fahrenheit and Centigrade? (I know the fraction 5/8 or 8/5 is involved and the number 32 gets added or subtracted, but not more). Anna Livia (talk) 17:15, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Shout out to Rob[edit]

Seeing as the Conservapedia party line is now that Italy's government is leaning left, you might like to memory hole this. You're welcome. LondonGrump (talk) 17:47, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

According to Andy, any government that isn't actively hanging gays and atheists from lampposts, is left-leaning. Unless they're Muslim. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 18:49, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
Sadly that is true. Early last year when Brunei bought in the law to stone gay people it was a "Setback for the homosexual agenda" A week or so later when Brunei announced it would not stone them to death it was "Caving to leftists" leaving absolutely no doubt on his position. I have not yet seen the ultra pro life Andy back Trump's proposed abandonment of 4,000,000 Americans to Covid19 to shore up the economy and his re election chances but I have no doubt he will. Remember, pro life starts at conception and ends with the birth, after that they are on their own.--Mercian (talk) 23:05, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
I have said with facetiousness that Ken has blood on his hands, he hasn't, it was pointless sparring and unnecessary. Andy will have though, another appalling post from him today [3] praising a moronic pastor for defying a state ban and holding a service for 1000+ people in his mega church which over-zealous liberals tried to stop. Conservatives are supposed to be pro life and pro law and order. Supporting this is both pro death and defiance of the law. I think a more appropriate stance is that they pro life and pro law and order ONLY if and when it suits their ideology.--Mercian (talk) 02:04, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
You raise an interesting moral point, Mercian. Although there is nothing close to equivalence yet, let's use the example of the Holocaust. Who was to blame? The camp guards? The men who drove the trains to the camps? The men who maintained the locomotives and track? The people who fed and clothed the maintenance staff? The people who staffed the shops that supplied the food and clothes? The truck drivers that delivered to the shops? The Circle of Guilt becomes fainter and fainter, even though every last person in that chain contributed in his or her small way to the enormity of the Shoah. However, the lines are more defined when you look at who cheered the Nazis, who them explicit, vocal moral support, who gave them the eucharist.
Ken may not have blood on his hands now but he fully supports and enables those who do. Now.
If "it happened here" and a new Anne Frank was in his neighbour's attic, what do you think he would do? LondonGrump (talk) 07:43, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
I am not sure what he would do but at least he is taking this threat seriously. It has been quite a sudden change from posting pictures of cute dogs and blaming atheists who eat them for the disease to posting coherent postings such as how the curve needs to be flattened, people need to isolate and if the economy takes a hit so be it. Andy is still posting that the spring months are a "setback for global warning" as the virus fares better in the cold. How the Olympics will (Conservapedia proven wrong)and should go ahead and praising a church crowd that some League Two teams would be happy to get. People can change their views, it seems Ken's at least on this issue have tempered whilst Andy has done the impossible and moved further into right wing lunacy than ever before.--Mercian (talk) 08:01, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
And just like that, he proves you right and me wrong.[4]--Mercian (talk) 09:51, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
One thing remains constant. Ken, like most of his buddies, can't evaluate evidence for toffee. LondonGrump (talk) 13:52, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
They still fawn to Trump like he is God. The man who two weeks ago declared himself a War President surrendered two days ago. No clue, no empathy, no intelligence, no chutzpah and a complete lack of Machismo. The macho man surrendered without a fight, thinking only of himself and his political future. Trump's new standard is a white cross on a white background, appropriate for a coward. Churchill promised nothing but blood, toil, tears and sweat, that's what a war leaders does. Trump offers false hope, pseudoscience and selfishness. --Mercian (talk) 08:34, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Look, the racist Mexicans just closed the border with the US, and the racist totalitarian Democrat governor of Rhode Island set up border check points and is incarcerating New Yorkers in quarantine gulags without trial. You guys need to seriously rethink some deeply held positions. nobsFree Roger Stone! 23:17, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Ken wants a Rob to send a message to London Grump.[edit]

As Rob has refused in the past to pass on messages from Ken and he is too cowardly to do so in person here it is before he bravely over-sites the post. [5]

Re: "One thing remains constant... [User: Conservative]..., like most of his buddies, can't evaluate evidence for toffee. LondonGrump (talk) 13:52, 26 March 2020 (UTC)"

Please tell LondonGrump that I know there is plenty of evidence pointing to secular leftism and globalism dropping like a rock in influence and right-wing nationalism and religious fundamentalism gaining influence.

Lastly, ask him to read the article Atheism and evidence which ranks #10 at a popular search engine that begins with a G for the phrase "Atheism and evidence". What proof and evidence does he have that atheism is a valid worldview?Conservative (talk) 02:22, 27 March 2020 (EDT)

Brave Sir Kenneth ran away, when danger reared it's ugly head he bravely turned his heels and fled, Brave brave Sir Kenneth.--Mercian (talk) 08:47, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Is he still doing that "popular search engine that begins with a G" shit? It's like it's 2012 again. (And I wish it fucking was.) Spud (talk) 13:43, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Evidence for toffee - [7] and [8] (and many, many, many other sites and cookbooks). Anna Livia (talk) 17:11, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Brave Sir Kendol, do you honestly think that if this drug that your pseudo doctor is pushing was an effective cure that the whole world would be crying for it? They are not because he is speaking bullshit, dangerous bullshit at that as stupid naive people like yourself fall for it and are given false hope. As you push this crap the the infection and death rate continues to rise exponentially. If only they listened to you eh, the man who thinks that atheism is the route of all the worlds health problems. Where is your God now Ken? Why has he not answered the prayers of all good conservatives and rid the world of this awful disease?--Mercian (talk) 19:16, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Hey, Ken, I'm flattered. If none of your collective wants to come here and join in, why not send someone to fix the thing about Italy moving to the populist right. You know, the Italy you think is moving to the left. You know, the one you have evidence for moving to the right. That one. LondonGrump (talk) 21:56, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

It's a miracle medicine, meanwhile the US has over 100,000 cases and rising sharply. It is very likely that the US will have the highest infection and death rate before this is over. If the response where the responsibility of anyone else than girly Trump this would not be so (Has anyone seen his briefings? it's all me, me, me, I am great, I am the best, the messiah, leader of the world, like a spoilt brat who's daddy bought her the wrong colour Range Rover for her 18th birthday) There is no doubt that when in becomes obvious that it is not a miracle cure and cases continue to rise that all the diarrhoea Ken has spouted will be deep burnt. As I have passed on a message for you Ken perhaps you can pass one to Andy from me. Even Trump was disgusted at the actions of a certain Thomas Massie, calling for his unseating. Remind Andy that it is forbidden to go against the word of Trump in any circumstances whatsoever. He should remove it.--Mercian (talk) 09:17, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
PS, Ken, are you descended from Ulster folk? It's just a hunch but take a look a the Ulster Banner and my hunch will become clear.--Mercian (talk) 09:22, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
I see Ken's new favourite doctor, and his miracle cure, appear to be deeply flawed. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 13:03, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

User Conservative, Gentlemen.[edit]

[9] Any person with any intelligence would understand that my reference to the Ulster Banner is an analogy . Red hand of Ulster means that someone in legend cut of and threw his hand so he could touch Ulster's soil first, it means you have blood on your hands, red hand of Ulster etc, understand now? In the time of world crisis you go back to your atheism and shite. New Zealand has not shut it's borders to stop immigration, they have closed their borders, like every other country in the world, to stop the spread of this deadly virus that you are finding both a source of humour and a stick to beat atheists with. You truly are a sick bastard. I for one hope you don't actually get sick whilst you, I am sure, want us all to die in our atheistic misery. I say again, you are a sick bastard, Ole Ole Ole.--Mercian (talk) 18:44, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

PS you must be mentally ill, someone pays you a compliment, like I did, and you spend the next 3 days dribbling and playing with your crayons to prove that you are unworthy of being complimented. What's up Sir Brave Sir [User: Conservative], can't you take a compliment? I think it is more likely that you are such a wanker that no one has ever paid you a compliment before and you just have no idea how to handle it. Even other Conservapedians strongly dislike you. What does it feel like to be the most hateful of an already strongly hateful gang of armchair thugs? Sick Bastard.--Mercian (talk) 18:54, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
And it's gone, and back, removed messy capture--Mercian (talk) 19:48, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
I must be mentally ill?
Global News reported:
"Children who are raised with religious or spiritual beliefs tend to have better mental health into their adulthood, a new study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found.
According to the study’s findings, people who attended weekly religious services or prayed or meditated daily in their childhood reported greater life satisfaction in their 20s. People who grew up in a religious household also reported fewer symptoms of depression and lower rates of post-traumatic stress disorder."[10]"
The journal article A global perspective in the epidemiology of suicide, published in the academic journal Suicidologi, found that "At 25.6, the total suicide rate is markedly highest in Atheist countries (e.g. China) which included in this analysis countries where religious observances had been prohibited for a long period of time (e.g. Albania)."[11]
According to the 2014 journal article Correlates of psychopathic personality traits in everyday life: results from a large community survey published in the journal Frontiers of Psychology lack of belief in God is positively associated with psychopathic traits.[12]GiuocoPiano (talk) 00:51, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Conservapedian grammar[edit]

Hey, Ken. Get one of your collective to find out what a conditional verb is. Then explain it to everyone else on Conservapedia, including PeterKaPeterKa. It will improve your comprehension no end and you'll be able to use words like "citation" with confidence.

There is no excuse for such poor literacy in a Western nation in 2020. Let's start with the little things and you can build up to the difference between a symptom and a disease. One day, you might even do the rocket science like R0. LondonGrump (talk) 09:50, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Grammar is unimportant, what is important is the virus is sparing conservatives and disproportionally (sic) affecting liberal/leftist geographic strongholds in the United States. The fewer people to vote for Trump the better. The pseudo cure he is pushing is working a treat, the US infection rate is only 112,000 (as of 18 hours ago)and rising fast but they are all liberals so that does not matter. The good pro (liberal) death conservatives are all protected by taking Bakker's Silver Solution, Jones' toothpaste and by going to church in their 1000s to pray for immunity.--Mercian (talk) 11:14, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

TK[edit]

I am not aware of this guy, before my time, I know that he died some time back. Was he a particularly liberal Conservapedian? I ask because in a now recent but deleted post Ken was dancing on his grave saying it was him who was hated, there was an Ole Ole Ole so I am presuming so.--Mercian (talk) 11:22, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Ha! TK was the über Conservapedian (see here). He was an RW user, you can access his talk page archives from here. He was totally self-centred (IMHO) and would have supplanted Andy if he could. Scream!! (talk) 12:03, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
I vaguely remember him as notable for a very hardline approach to banning users. and some falling out with andy. AMassiveGay (talk) 12:37, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
or more accurately vaguely remember talk of him. AMassiveGay (talk)
So why the grave dancing?--Mercian (talk) 13:38, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
possibly ken fell foul of tk's blocking regime. very probable even. I cant stress the draconian blocking enough btw. it was his thing. and this is all still 2nd hand half memories. I just know he blocked everyone and he pissed everyone off. AMassiveGay (talk) 13:56, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
TK was a fucking Golden Age legend. LondonGrump (talk) 16:58, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
This is the case. They really didn't like each other towards the end, and feuded in various ways. As I recall, TK really did block Ken at one point, but Ken unblocked himself. And that recent behavior by Ken does sound typical, though I haven't kept up with events there.192․168․1․42 (talk) 05:43, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
TK was a deep level parodist, something that the morons at CP were totally unaware of until after he died. In fact they were unaware he had died until it was posted on here. TK managed to cause more damage to conservapedia than possible any other single user. He managed to get super admin powers from schlafly and promptly used them to range block more than half the world, and I am not joking. At one stage the whole of the UK was range blocked at ip level from CP because TK was singly handly destroying the place. The only way I could view CP was to use a US based proxy. As a user he was possibly one of the most obnoxious people who ever lived, as a deep level parodist he was without peer. 87.74.14.220 (talk) 12:47, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
TK never had me fooled; in fact, I still don't believe he's dead. nobsFree Roger Stone! 06:41, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

Andy's MPR posts since the shutdown.[edit]

[13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22] I especially like the "Setback for global warning, spring will come and cure the virus". WTF does that actually mean! There is a pattern here, every one of his posts criticises one person or the other for doing the right thing apart from the congressman who "stood up to bullying" who did very much the wrong thing. Is this man a pillar of the conservative christian community or a spoilt brat who hates it that things are not going how he wants them too. No need to answer, I have learned by reading articles during my enforced social distancing (which I agree with) that a pillar of the conservative christian community and spolit brat are the same thing. And this man is allowed to teach kids.--Mercian (talk) 08:35, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Is he still teaching kids? It’s been ages since CP has seen new home-school content, and I have the impression, which could be wrong, that asking about its current use as a home school resource is a banning offense.

He's switched to all hyroxychloroquine. The whole pandemic is now a liberal plot based on denying God's gift of this virus-vanquisher. Democrat governors won't distribute it. And somehow they stop Republic governors from distributing it too. Whoover (talk) 16:54, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
There does seem to be some promise with hyroxychloroquine, I am not sure whether the genius who invented this cure was Andy or Trump though. Awards from WHO because of their discovery can wait, for now it would speed things up if a sample of the virus and hyroxychloroquine were released to Andy for testing. I believe he has both experience and expertise on such matters--Mercian (talk) 07:28, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

I am not sure where he lives but it is in New Jersey. I have been to NJ and the part I was in was just miles and miles of what were de facto NYC suburbs.

Ken can't do maths.[edit]

He posted to an article where he says that the coranavirus was bought to America from Europe including the UK. Reality: The first case in the USA was 20 Jan and the first case in the UK was 31 Jan. I know there is a time difference but I did not think it was 11 days.--Mercian (talk) 00:56, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Is Ken serious about this?[edit]

Is he really arguing that Trump should serve as President until there’s a vaccine? MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 21:28, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

It has been proven that Ken and his like do not care about democracy. It's like everything, extreme conservatives only care about being pro-life, pro law and order and pro-democracy when it suits their needs. Abortion, strictly no, willing to kill two million so their lives are not pushed into discomfort, a big thumbs up on that. A protestor litters on Wall Street, lock him up and throw away the key, a pastor gets arrested for blatantly disregardful the law about large gatherings after numerous warnings, a cave to the left. If a hypothetical President Biden was pushing for a delay it would be a liberal coup to undermine democracy. If hydroxychloroquine was the cure and the democrats were so insistent on the election going ahead as planned they would be pushing it left right and centre . But they are not doing that, why? Because though it might be able to ease the symptoms of Covid19 like Paracetamol does with the Common Cold neither is the fucking cure.--Mercian (talk) 11:08, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

I’ve watched the first two episodes. Andy (and her other children) appear, but they barely speak. The credits list Liam MacDonald as the actor playing Andy. The listing of episodes says the final episode is called “Reagan”, so if he’s in later episodes, they might have an older actor. If you’ve got a Hulu subscription, it’s worth checking out.

Be warned that the series opens with Cate Blanchett as Phyllis in a bikini. Now, Cate is a lovely woman, but the idea of younger Phyllis in a bikini may be scarring to some. MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 17:46, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

Could be worse. There could be a sex scene or two. LondonGrump (talk) 12:52, 21 April 2020 (UTC)
There is at least one, though the sexuality is not graphic. In short, her husband forces her to have sex, against her will. Phyllis is shown on the bed, obviously unhappy. What parts of her that can be seen remain clothed. It’s brief, and not done to be titillating.
Her daughter Ann has objected to the scene on Twitter, and says it never would have happened (and has criticized much of the rest of the series.)
Of course, only two people know for sure, and both are dead. However, I think it serves a valid dramatic point since she did not believe a woman had the right to refuse sex with her husband.
The series is as much about the early feminist movement as it is about Schlafly’s opposition to it. Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Betty Friedan are all there. Phyllis is the most prominent character, but that’s in part due to her being the singular main representation of the opposition, while the feminist leaders have multiple characters.
And while Phyllis is clearly the villain of the piece (and I’m not sure villain is a completely valid term), she’s shown to have some redeeming qualities. There’s one or two scenes where she deals with southern allies who are quite clearly racists. She maneuvers to get them out of national leadership. I’m not sure if that’s due to her personal opposition to segregation or just feeling it would be politically savvy to sideline segregationists, though.
I’ll add this and close. Cate Blanchett is great in the role. As a friend said, she has a remarkable ability to make an utterly acid comment and then turn on an icy smile. She’s a bit like Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter, simultaneously charming and horrific. (Though to be fair, she was nota monster like him. She was not a cannibal. At least, not to my knowledge.)

Belgium gives its citizens an education voucher for primary/secondary schooling which they can use at a variety of public/private/religious schools. "Belgium enacted universal school choice in 1958 in what it termed the “School Pact”; school choice was seen as a way of avoiding strife between Catholic and Protestant schools."[27] Homeschooling is legal in Belgium, education is compulsory, but school attendance is not.[28]
Education in Belgium ranks third-best among the 35 OECD countries, well above the EU and world averages, with the highest level of pre-school participation, good teachers and a broad and flexible higher education system.[29]

Conservapedia's obsession with Bill Gates.[edit]

[30] I always wondered why they hate him so until I read an article. I don't have it to hand but the jist goes that ultra conservatives just cannot get their head around a multi billionaire doing good things in the world without having an ulterior motive. Hence when he spends hundreds of millions on vaccines for Africa he MUST be planning to take over the world. As conservative billionaires generally do no act in that way he must be evil. I wonder how many of them run Windows--Mercian (talk) 00:42, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Perhaps because he’s one of the most charitable people alive, and is apparently non-religious? Or, more generally, they mistrust the intents of anyone who is trying to change the world from outside their worldview.
Or he’s just the latest conservative boogeyman. At least George Soros is off the hook for now. MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 22:08, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Have you read the article Atheism and the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic. After the SARS outbreak, China's atheist leaders should have put a stop to the wild animal trade in wet markets and elsewhere in China. But they were negligent. "Because atheists" is entirely correct!
Second, as far as "silver linings", it is not my fault that liberal/leftist leaning institutions like Hollywood and secular universities are less resilient during this crisis than biblical Christianity.[35][36][37][38] Is there anything more fragile than secular leftism? In 2019, John Feffer wrote at the left leaning The Nation: "In the Americas, the Trump tsunami has swept across both continents and the 'pink tide' of progressivism has all but disappeared from the southern half of the hemisphere... In this planet-wide rising tide of right-wing populism, the liberal left commands only a few disconnected islands — Iceland, Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, Spain, Uruguay... Worse, crafty operators with even more ambitious agendas stand ready to destroy the liberal status quo once and for all."[39] And New Zealand faces desecularization within this century (see: Postsecularism and New Zealand in the 21st century).
Deny that God's chosen people, the Jews, are making faster progress in treatments to the Covid-19 than the atheistic countries of China, Vietnam and North Korea and lose all credibility![40][41] See also: Atheism and medicine and Atheism and science and Atheist hospitals and Atheist doctors and Atheism and health.
