My beloved parents got married in this beautiful Unitarian Church on 57th and Woodlawn featured in this blog, and the Wedding reception was across the street at Quad Club – what a party it must have been, I have the photos.
How about some of you young, sane, intelligent Conservatives or whatever you want to call yourself now here at the Chicago Thinker do the same – get married, have a great wedding reception party at Quad Club and then…
Talk is cheap.
Not very many people that count are listening to you/us anyway.
Please, lets have some traditional heterosexual marriages in these beautiful, largely abandoned Hyde Park, Kewood churches – where the current Woke, LGBT, Liberation Theology, feminists, BLM clergy has a hard time getting anyone to come to their Sunday services unless they offer free grocery and clothes give always. Even the the overweight poor people taking the freebies don’t stay for the Woke services.
What does that have to do with COVID?
The fact that most people criticising COVID policies are “conservatives” means nothing.
The one has nothing to do with the other.
“What does that have to do with COVID?”
Because the featured image on this COVID article/blog is of the beautiful Unitarian Church on 57th and Woodlawn – the church where my parents were married.
So many, most of the bad Lib Leftist problems we see in our universities, our society could be solved if other young college students do what may parents did.
Get married and start, raise a traditional American family.
Talk is cheap.
Let’s do it.
Methinks Jacob Stewart has some problems with others expressing opinions on subjects not actauly related to the blog. Too bad for Jacob.
Methinks Hal has some problems actually replying to the person he’s talking about. Too bad for Hal.
So, when will the Livestream begin? Have been trying since 11:20 pm but nada so far. Hope that this event is still on.
I hope you will also make the recording available later on rumble. Youtube will eventually censor you. Kudos for speaking out and organizing this symposium
Background conversations are distracting to viewers of the livestream.
Can the non-speakers stay quiet?
Youtube is STILL running the propaganda from the CDC about Covid19 – even during this livestream 3 years later, and after all the revelations of their bad info!
Thank you for bringing together so many esteemed voices in this symposium! I respectfully offer some suggestions here for ensuring more robust audience turnout (and participation) and greater chance for webcasting ease and success. Consider the following: Break up each speaker/panel segment into separate consecutive broadcasting “events”. Promote them and title them as such. Title each event with words that concisely define the theme under discussion. List the participants of each panel and add link bios and contact. List the precise time of start and an estimated length. Start 30 minutes earlier than the advertised start, many people tune in early to check their bandwidth/connectivity and some will want to record it, so they will appreciate. Investigate Rumble.com where the possibility of squelch is zero as opposed to the youtube/google complex that is created by morons for morons. Thanks again for your efforts today, great job!
