Posted in: Planning a BBQ? Not if you want to save the planet See in context

Reminds me of how the Brahmans controlled India.

The peasants were told not to eat beef (cows are sacred after all).

Meanwhile the rulers lavished on high quality meat, including beef, which contains essential Omega fatty acids and Vitamin B-complex.

The rulers were thus healthier, stronger and could think with more clarity and easily control the feeble peasants.

Oh well, what can you do except lament and just sit back and watch the marriage rate plummet even further.

In the end, women will find that this new social paradigm of banning the ability of men to pursue women will actually hurt them more than it hurts men.

Interesting that the Malaysian Prime Minister claims that Russian is being unfairly scapegoated here.

Is he a victim of Russian propaganda also?

It’s simply, if she likes you, it’s flirting, if she doesn’t, it’s an unwanted advance.

In this climate, any man looking for a romantic partner at the office is playing with fire.

The White House, however, said in its statement Wednesday that Turkey had plenty of chances to buy the U.S. Patriot system.

Men are wisely avoiding women altogether and refraining from any and all non-professional engagements.

Posted in: LGBT community hopes election spurs gay rights debate, legislation See in context

I wonder how the world went from gayship during the Roman-era, Greek-era, Viking-era, and Nanshoku during the feudal-era of Japan

Technically true, evidence shows that prevalence of homosexuality in society is widespread in all collapsing civilizations. Whether it's causation or correlation is another matter.

The West (embracing homosexuality) is collapsing as we speak and Islam (not embracing homosexuality) is slowly taking over, as Muslim families have far stronger family bonds and bear more children and at an earlier age.

Posted in: LGBT community hopes election spurs gay rights debate, legislation See in context

I think LGBT people should have the exact same rights I do.

They should be allowed to marry whomever they love, as long as that person is not under 18, of the same gender, closely related, mentally retarded or already married.

Let's apply the same rule equally to everybody.

China had its civil war and Beijing won fair and square.

Akin to Alabama refusing to accept the result of the US civil war and not accepting rule from Yankee Washington DC.

Then China starts arming Alabama, all in the name of "maintaining balance in the region"

Posted in: U.S. deciding how to punish ally Turkey over Russian arms deal See in context

But the US also has the requisite not to sell the F-35 to them

Turkey and the US signed a contract and Turkey already paid a huge deposit.

Akin to signing a deal for a new Chevy and paying the down payment, but then Chevy says "We refuse to deliver your car because your other car is a Ford".

Turkey is a paying customer, they did nothing wrong.

America please impeach or vote out this cretin in the next election.

Why is it Trump's fault that the US can't produce technology to compete the the Russians?

Trump's handling this admirably, trying to promote US interests but not letting things spiral out of control.

The US defence industry meanwhile, is in full-blown crybaby mode after not only losing out on the Turkey air defence bid but losing both a customer and a supplier for the the F35.

Posted in: Trump pattern is create a crisis, retreat, move on See in context

It's not his job to micromanage every problem in the US. His job is to point out areas where the US is failing and delegate the task of solving those problems to the government civil service.

Problem is that most civil servants in place today were hired during the Obama and Clinton years and are woefully incompetent.

Turkey obviously wants Russian technology (the S400) more than American technology (the F35).

US allies Saudi Arabia, India and Qatar and also going to make the same decision.

Go ahead, pile on the crybaby sanctions, everybody seems to be ignoring them anyway.

Funny how a society that disciplines people with death thinks it's wrong for a parent to discipline their own child with a mere slap.

Parents are going to start fearing their kids.

Kids will have power over their parents, and they're going to use it.

Buy me that new smartphone or else I'm going to hit my head on the wall and go to the koban and have you arrested.
