Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 21, 2020

Wired interviews Larry Brilliant, an epidemiologist who helped eradicate smallpox, about what Americans can expect to experience during this pandemic and what he would like to see happen to help the situation. One thing Brilliant said that sounded so logical was that people should not only be tested to see if they have the virus but also tested to see if they have recovered and now have immunity to the virus. Then, Brilliant said, those people could be issued official identification which would allow them to safely help others and continue working, hastening everyone's return to normalcy.

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

The end times are here.

This guy's name is Brilliant...
Is this a badly scripted movie or a simulation?

So?

YOU think you got you a seat right next to Jayzus or something?

Trash the earth and expect Gawd to give you an eternal paradise in return?

Besides.... how do you know it isn't the beginning times?

Do you think you are so special that you don't deserve to die into non-existence like everything else?

I've thought about this.

Not sure they have a serological assay up and running yet. Making the actual assay isn't hard, it's more validating the controls. Also, they're not as fast as the PCR tests to run. (caveat, I've used lab versions of this, clinical lab tests may be more streamlined than what I would have used)

#5 When Trump requires his evangelical christian base to get the mark of the beast to work or go to church, things are going to get real.
