    I've noticed something. (Bear with me, you'll get the point.)

    The BOLsheviks claimed to be the majority party. They weren't. They seized the moniker and gave the other moniker to the MENsheviks. (Bol- meaning "big", Men- meaning "small" or something akin to that. I don't speak Russian.)

    They wrangled the name they wanted because, being savvy about human nature, they seized the print presses and the telegraphs. No way for the opposition to get their word out. The average Russian had no real way of proving they weren't the majority party, and as more and more people flocked to them, they became the majority.

    Basically, they became the majority by lying and exaggerating about their own political power.

    MY POINT? The Democrat Party in the USA and its media lapdogs CONSTANTLY OVERSTATE DEMOCRAT POLL NUMBERS.

    It's obvious the media in the UK plays by the same "overstating" rules that the American Bolshevik media are playing by.

    You can't believe a poll conducted by the left wing media.

    Which media outlet foresaw the victory of the Conservative Party in the UK? Or if they did, reported it to the people?

    Never trust the Bolshevik media.

    Those climate "scientists" are less informed than I am, and I'm no scientist.

    Notice how the decrease in hurricane activity COINCIDES with a decrease in decreased solar activity?

    Strange, how they didn't notice that. Weather is solar-driven. That's how it works.

    And if, as the title says, it's all "dumb luck", then are they saying that "dumb luck" drives climate? How does it power weather? It can't. The sun does. They're so intellectually false that they can't even describe, accurately, what is impelling our atmosphere to move around.

    The Left senses there is money to be made from this.

    They want to be paid off--at the bottom of all this protest, those holding the reins of the protest will turn the protest "off" quite instantly when offered a share of the money.

    This is extortion, pure and simple, disguised as an "environmental" protest. Watch how quickly it gets turned off once the right palms are greased.

    They should initiate a RICO prosecution against these extortionists. Jail a few of 'em. Make a big show--frog march them in front of the cameras.

    sauron to afraidfortherepublic
    Wouldn't the U.S. government ground the entire fleet of airliners IF it had genuinely been a fuel tank explosion?

    Wouldn't it be considered a product safety defect, and wouldn't the government react, as it does in the military when an aircraft exhibits some questionable defect, result in the GROUNDING OF THE AIR FLEET?

    The fact that the government did NOT ground that type of airframe until inspections were made, worldwide, indicates the government itself DOES NOT BELIEVE it was a fuel tank explosion.

    There was a wedding party of dozens of people who say a missile streak upwards. I am a news junkie; it was shown on TV...but within hours, the news networks pulled that from the TV.

    And why wasn't the NTSB in charge? Why the FBI? That's another "indicator" that something wasn't as they said.

    We were hit on that day. Did anyone claim credit (blame) for it? I'd like to know. It would be too easy to rent a small boat, sit just offshore and fire a U.S.-made Stinger missile, one of the countless that we gave the Afghans during their war against Soviet occupation.

    I think that's what happened; it was one of our Stingers, and the outcry, if the American people ever found that out, would be terrible.

    I had to fire someone like that. Very unproductive employee, started her shenanigans on DAY ONE, it turned out. I was stunned at the time.

    But I'm wiser, now. She seemed to arrive on the job "pre-trained" to try to play this kind of game.

    And yes (for the curious minded) she could have been Obama's daughter. Very sad...when given a chance (good job, very secure public sector, good pay, health/vacation benefits) she chose to throw all of it away.

    As if she came from another country, frankly. Different mores, different habits, different way of thinking. A very short-term mode of thought.

    And YES, if you're a competent and caring manager, you CAN fire public sector employees. It's a myth that you can't...at least in Nevada. (I don't know about NYC/Chicago/NJ.)

    WRENCHED his state, through sheer force of will and sound fiscal persuasion, into a state of solvency DESPITE temper tantrums from the Democrats who held Wisconsin in a state of bondage for many years.

    I'm sure his own political advisors...thought it couldn't be done. Probably advised him not to try.

    I'm sure the Democrats and their thug union pals thought he'd never succeed.

    But he fought those odds. (No, not odd people, just the percentage-based odds.)

    And now it's down to name-calling. Fine. But the author should have the sense of intellectual integrity at least to keep whatever name calling factual, at least. "Gutless wonder"? Indeed, not.

Thank God I was patient enough, but it took a little more than six months of study to work through it, and now...it seems crazy, but there was really no barrier at any time, at all.

    You have it precisely CORRECT, sir!

    NATO can't field much. I recently looked at their military manpower, number of armored vehicles (separating out the true tanks from the flimsy stuff they were trying to count as significant), the number of helicopters and aircraft (again, separating out the true "combat" capable ones) and I was horrified.

    Just the other week, the Brits--the BRITS!--couldn't find a sub next to their coast. Needed assistance. How far they've fallen! Then, a small group of Russian ships sheltered up briefly in the Straits of Dover, and the Brits weren't able to send out more than a frigate to escort 'em.

    Then, there have been numerous (a dozen or more) incidents where Russian (shall I say, SOVIET?) bombers have flown out of the Baltic, into the North Sea, and in other areas.

    All in a show of power. Russia has it, the Euros don't.

    Then, there's that dependency they've developed on Russian natural gas.

    The Euros have very little freedom of movement, militarily, and even some restriction (energy embargo in retaliation by Russia?) on their economic choices.

    Quite seriously, if you look at the land forces, especially, it's a stark and scary difference in power.

    How did we let this decline happen? We're tempting the Bear. Weakness, it has been said, can be procative, and lead to the very war that is being avoided at all costs.

    HOW FAR THE GREEK PEOPLE HAVE FALLEN.

    No longer the stoic people of old, they are whiney and weak. And without honor. Accepting loan after loan and never seeking to repay, just refinance after extension after extension again.

    How sad, really. No heroes. They need heroes.

    $200,000,000,000? They want two hundred billion? Their entire economy isn't worth that much.

    The sad thing about Greek politics is that the whiniest political party is the one that always gets the most votes. It sells to the electorate, who perennially have their hands outstretched, palms up.

    Gimmee, gimmee.

    Each political party hires party loyalists, packing them in to government jobs, doling out public money to trade unions in order to perpetuate themselves in power.

    The EU itself is squeezing the life out of little Greece; they have culpability, too, but I blame the debtor much more than the lendor.

    The Greeks retire at age 57, the Germans at 67. The Germans are aware of this, have commented on it, and are tired of playing the part of creditor--financing bad loan after bad loan so their happy-go-lucky debtors can live carefree lives.

    Been playin' it since 2009. IIRC, I may have tried it earlier than that, but passed.

    This game is almost as flexible as real life. You can be an accountant, or a pirate, or a CEO. Or anything else.

    Everyone who may be curious, follow that link to "This is EVE" or watch it on YouTube. Very well worth it.

    That said, the game will only appeal to < 10% of people, it's got so much detail 90% will see it as overly complicated and hate it, and the rest of us will revel in the beauty and complexity of it all.

    You can play it for years and no learn everything. Again, it's like real life. Hell of a learning cliff in this game!

    Lastly, this game does nothing to constrict or channel your options--it allows HUMAN NATURE to be what it is. It's the wild, wild west in most places. That said, you *will* find many who will help you if they see you need it.

    Iran's theocratic leaders believe that they cannot win a war with the USA, but that they must prove to their moon god that they are willing to try hard enough so that he will favor them and give them his support.

    They believe they will usher in their new age if they engage the Great Satan in a fight they should not be able to win.

    MAD (mutually assured destruction) does not apply to Iran, and our State Department is so secular that they routinely discount any sincere religious belief that may motivate the Iranians. Fools. Because we Americans generally aren't religious, we cannot comprehend those who are motivated by it.

    More correctly, our leaders aren't religious, they're secular. And that secular thinking underestimates the sincerity of belief the Other Side possesses in pursuit of its goals. We're all gonna die because of miscalculation.

    I vote for a pre-emptive strike on Iran. All those in favor?

  • Mother of Trayvon: 'The very thing that caused my son to lose his life was the color of his skin'

    Well, uh, NO Mrs. Martin, I'm sorry to have to break it to you, but it was the way YOU raised him, ma'am.

    You didn't teach him respect for others, nor did you teach him self-discipline. You didn't teach him "Thou Shalt Not Steal" and apparently many other things, like how not to resolve arguments with your fists.

    His death, ma'am, I lay at YOUR feet.

    Considering the cost to society in fires, riots, wholesale invasions and thefts from local businesses...if I were in charge, I'd make you pay $$$ for all of it, my dear.

    Any profits from your T-shirt sales and web site exploitation of your son's death would go to pay back the city of Ferguson via the Chamber of Commerce.

    Be thankful I'm not governing over you, ma'am.

    Amazing times. I'm glad I've lived this long. ;)

    I can't believe we're going to map out Ceres. Just incredible.

    There's a rape victim.

    She's crying out for help.

    And Tcrlaf is telling us to just ignore her cries for help, she deserves it. No, in fact, she started it, we should side with her attacker.

    There, I've about summed up Tcrlaf's absurd position. I'd like to know why he assumed that position in the first place; would make for interesting reading.

    Kiev propaganda ramping up again, along with the new offensive.

    Are you taking Russia's side, bud?

    Russia is the aggressor. Take a look at the map, friend. Russia has stepped over the border. Ukraine didn't invade Russia.

    It's the other way around.

    Explain to everyone on FR why you're taking the aggressor's side, we'd like to know just why you side with Russia at this moment in history.

  • The heat is on; NOAA, NASA say 2014 warmest year on record (hurl alert)

    Sadly, our NASA is no longer ours.

    It belongs to the Far Left. It belongs to Obama.

    If you think you can trust NASA for climate data, consider that its avowed first purpose is now "Muslim outreach."

    Doubt it?

    1) Google NASA + Muslim outreach.

    2) Be amazed.

    3) Be angry.

    My thoughts?

    I've noticed that the [m]uslims want DOMINANCE, that The Al Quaeda Reader which details their thinking--in their own words--illustrates this on every other page.

    Victory is no good unless it's a sweet victory that serves a didactic purpose to show [i]slam is dominant.

    At one point, in that book, there was a quotation from the [k]oran that advised the would-be jihadi, after winning his victory, to at least take (not ask for, TAKE) a glass of water from the defeated.

    It is CUSTOMARY to rub it in under [i]slam. Such a way of thinking would prohibit them from being civil and using a radio transmitter to issue forth the (mandatory) call to prayer. No, they'd want to rub it in your face.

    When you have consumed enough religion to violate the Golden Rule...then you aren’t really capable of handling religion (of any type), and need to get back to gardening, landscaping, painting the garage, and putt-putt golf.

    Karl Barth--returned from North America, where he found safety--and went back to Nazi Germany to directly level criticism against Hitler's regime--and was killed for it. A 20th century Christian martyr.

    Mother Teresa. She lived only for others. Gave up everything to help others. Did this until she died. She exemplified the selfless servant, the very model of Christ.

    They're what people who "consume enough" Christianity look like. ;)

    There's no way to "consume" enough Christianity to violate the Golden Rule.

    Gosh, I just hate it when people argue moral equivalence of all religions. ;)
