of course the 'left' is just deciding to worship big pharma and the government as a way to 'own the rednecks'....which is of course the only important activity that exists in their pathetic life.

but there is also way too much trust among ordinary people and even on the right.

It is literally mRNA engineering. it is gene therapy. And clearly you are going to be forced to get boosters every 6 months.

Imagine what the government COULD do if it just wants access to all the DNA of its **** population? And WOULD the government do that sort of thing if they could get away with it? OF COURSE.

We are living in a kafka esque sort of dystopia right now.

The government spies on absolutely everything you do...collects all data on absolutely everyone...and uses AI to analyze that data.

corporations can literally patent a strand of DNA...which of course started out being used for GMO technology.

BUt what if human beings are about to be the new **** GMO? why not?

and we are allowing all of this access because we are afraid of a bad flu? that kills less than 1% of the people it infects?

I really am baffled at the modern man. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

The people who are able sometimes to admit that I made a point happen to be conservatives and libertarians and sometimes anarchists.

There is an obvious psychological difference between the two. People who consider themselves leftists have somehow been so deeply brainwashed that they have lost all sentience. They just want to be good servants to their masters and could not care less about truth or consequences.
I certainly cannot disagree. But my own experience with the right, PRE TRUMP, is that their behavior was extremely similar. 

These days, it is less pronounced on the right - and it is bloody ubiquitous on the left. But snapshots are snapshots - and the moving picture we live in is a two party production. Back when the repukes became slavish goons for corporate power (for example, huey defended citizens united, as well as torture - neo defended torture - almost every conjob on the board defended torture, and ALL the mother **** defended globalism and so-called free trade), the democrats were still the party of labor. They fought AGAINST globalism. The democrat old guard was stridently nationalist and protectionist, beyond anything Trump manifested.

It was only after republicans turned our nation over to the globalists that democrats threw dignity to the winds and started sucking global corporate dick. 

And not fer nuthin? I can find you an *** load of leftists who oppose aipac and israeli influence. You find me ANY repuke, and I can swab that ***'s mouth for jew semen every time, never fails. 

The repukes are cheek by jowl with the demonrats on covid - if they were not, the game would not be afoot. They are presenting TOKEN resistance, while the demonrats' agenda continues to gain steam.

Days start getting longer now, Northern Hemispherians.

Let's have a little better attitude about life for a while.
Embrace the give and take, the live and let live spirit.

In about a week, we can start to try (yet again) to be the person our dog thinks we are...

-

Sure, some folks have squatted in our brains and deserve flailing of skin with brands of fire.
Maybe an electronic lost-context post has enraged us for no truly identifiable reason.
So you found out a now-former friend voted for (in your opinion) the worst human on Earth.

I hope the Mystery of the Magic Mask will be solved or forgotten soon.
Maybe the Roswell Rods of the Vaccine will be triggered and finally the cyborgs will march.

Let's try to keep the youngins from being denied their childhood at least.
Adults can manage the scares and chaos better than we have.
Be a good example in front of the kids. Some of them are parents themselves... Image

The problem that you are encountering, libdave, is that you are bringing level one arguments to a level 2, level 3 board.

Yes, we are replete with lowbrows, always. And yes, we tire of holding our end and engage in a bit of trolling.

But many of us on this board have worked through the level one **** you are bringing. I mean, you sling adam smith like he's the new kid with the shiny idea. A bit of infill has been experienced since his day. We've gone from theory to practice.

And it is the actual practice of capitalism that affects our lives - not the theory.

You still have not explained why the nanny state needs to be involved in the economy at the level of regulating the trading boards which you APPARENTLY require in order for you and some buddies to go into bidness together...

[quote="Vegas" post_id=1919889 time=1642450690 user_id=1050]
As some may be aware, I have a strong dedication to education. I have always maintained that there cannot possibly be a negative effect on creating an educated populace. This is a good article on why poor students underperform in school. It isn't because they are stupid. Kids from poor families don't have the basic needs taken care of such as food, shelter, clothes, and parental involvement. How does a child learn when they are hungry? They may eat a **** meal at school, and that is it for the rest of the day. 

Here is what the research found: 
[list]
[*]Poor families who received an extra $3000 in government assistance had a significant increase in test scores vs those who did not receive assistance. 
[*]There is no lack of data that shows a strong correlation between poverty and low educational performance. 
[/list]

A counter argument states that America spends more money per student than most any other nation on Earth, yet we still have poor performance with respect to the rest of the developed world. 

My response is that the money is not being allotted correctly. The money spent is used for books, teacher salaries, building costs, etc...It doesn't address the root cause, which is poverty. 

My solution is to follow the overwhelming research. Provide money to impoverished families so they can at least have three meals a day, a decent apartment/home, and the basic needs.[/quote]

With all due respect to your very valid points, I've really got to ask how it is that those poor who you refer to that send their kids to school hungry, are either not taking advantage of the federal food stamp program, or are simply not spending it for it's intended purposes for their children.  I refuse to believe that those recipients can't afford to spend a couple of bucks a day of that welfare money to give their kid a couple of eggs and toast for breakfast, and a tuna sandwich for lunch.  This isn't and should not be the responsibility of the schools, nor should the hard-working taxpayer be forced to pay for those meals twice, first for the food stamp fund and later to pay a stipend to the school. 

Before I'd ask taxpayers to spend another $3000 per family, I'd want to see why their parents are not taking their responsibility seriously, and not simply cover up their abuse of that welfare they're already getting.  And one more thing.  Before sending another nickel their way, they should be required to take a drug test, just to confirm that this is not where their welfare money is going.  Why shouldn't those taking welfare fall under the same criteria as those required to take a drug test prior to getting hired for a job?  How is it that one is perfectly acceptable, and the other is an inhumane and unfair requirement steeped in racism that causes such great humiliation?

Do you find that so unreasonable?

I would say this was a masterpiece by clint eastwood...and it also expresses how much our society has changed.

the name naturally comes from biblical prophecy....the pale horse heralds the final struggle of god against satan. Clint Eastwood himself plays the tool of god's divine intervention...he appears to be an answer to a prayer of a 14 year old girl whose dog was killed by the 'bad guys'.

one of the nice things about this 'western' is that it does tip its hat to something closer to the reality of the original settlers in the west: the fact they were deeply religious. This never seems to be portrayed in normal westerns...but the fact is that people in the old west were deep believers in god, divine intervention, and perhaps witchcraft. That actually makes them a lot more fascinating than the typical western which portrays them as some sort of post modern nihilistic thugs.

the 'bad guys' in the movie are in fact industrialist capitalists. They are the nihilistic ones. carpet baggers...as we southerners used to call them during reconstruction. That also is closer to the truth of the history of this country...in contrast to mainstream boomer narrative: that capitalism was some sort of high virtue in the history of this country. Think about it: the first settlers were religious pilgrims wanting to construct a more deeply religious society than they could ever have in europe in the 1600s. They burned witches. How could they ever imagine their society would be transformed into the nihilistic late stage capitalist society we have today?

The movie also makes an important point about leadership: clint eastwood first arrives as a preacher. The main villian explicitly says that he would have preferred a gunslinger to a preacher...because you can simply kill a gunslinger. A preacher, however, can give the people hope. And the people drastically outnumber the industrialists and they could seize power at any time, if only they had the inspiration. They are only oppressed because they are meek and afraid (a common problem among christians i must say)...and i suppose they also suffer from the typical prisoners dilemma. Nobody wants to be the first to resist because of course you will get killed and there is no guarantee that the rest of the people will support you. Clint therefore serves this purpose of giving the people hope and making them more bold...and that is what a good leader does. When one of the people, Hull, declare their intention to fight, clint is no longer a preacher...he then transforms into the avenging angel role.

the rest of the movie is just standard western shooting stuff...and naturally the good guys win. Clint then leaves town and returns back to heaven.

anyway, it is an intellectually interesting movie. Do recommend.

this is why intelligent debate is so hard.  The passing of time is gradual, inexorable and powerful. 

1920s globalism was so much different than today’s globalism in terms of logistics.  In 1920, McDonalds wasn’t even a thing.  Today a private landowner in the Southeast Asia could become a franchise owner and have a McDonalds doing business in 5 countries by the end of the week,  and the local guy selling fried possum ******* sautéed on a stick would be losing market share

I KNOW globalism was around in the 1920s, but mass overnight transit.. not so much

It doesn’t work for the same reason that libertarianism doesn’t work, it is naive.  People will always conspire, Cheat, work to gain advantage and leverage on others.  Power just is, and power corrupts.  


 [/quote]

there is no political philosophy that is 100% wrong. They all contain a grain of truth...they HAVE to, or they wouldnt be persuasive.

What marxists get correct is that there IS a serious threat of private ('bourgeois') power.

state power is the only thing that even has the potential to defy money power. And that is the purpose of a state in the first place: to protect the people it represents from organizations stronger than they are. Not all states successfully DO THAT (ours does not)...but that is their PRIMARY purpose. No doubt. Any state that fails is illegitimate. 

the fact the USA is so vulnerable to attack from money and an entrenched cooperate minority is made clear by looking at the history of the italian mafia. They were even able to enter the political circle...for example mayor of providence rhode island.

If the mafia could do that...made up of bootstrapping poor italians who were just engaged in semi organized criminal profits...just imagine what an entrenched ethnocentric people who had overwhelming control over banks and the media could accomplish? (did accomplish).

In contrast...if the USA were ruled by a queen isabella...neither the mafia nor any other private power could have ever acquired much power. Queen isabella would be very illiberal, of course...but then so is mafia power...so the idea you have a better choice is just an illusion.

like yes...power always exists...and power vacuums are always filled. You cannot eliminate all power by simply taking power from the state. The only relevant question is who has power? If you are an italian you might have good reason to appreciate that the italian mafia has power...but when it was taken over by jews (sheldon adleson, top trump donor, had such a legacy)...italian americans moved back to italy. Power of course is a threat to any individual but your best option is this: the person in power is on your side.

As a white man i would of COURSE prefer that white people had the power in this country. Then crap like affirmative action and race shaming children would cease to exist real fast. And this need not be an ethics question at all...i would prefer it simply because i am white. black activist trying to encroach upon my nation would then be mere adversaries. I would not need to consider them evil or inferior...just adversaries. Just like it wasnt necessary to call native americans evil or inferior. In contrast, an ostensibly LIBERAL country is FORCED to label its adversaries evil or inferior...because liberalism is founded on the illusion of moral superiority. All the freaks who consider this attitude 'white supremacist' are simply projecting their own political priors onto me.

Politics: Progressive

The idea that Socialists want free stuff is the great lie of capitalism.
What Socialists want is for the fruits of the people's labor to be distributed equitably, rather than allowing ten old men to hoard half of the planet's wealth and control over half of its assets.

Under Capitalism, food is not produced to feed people. It is produced to make a profit.
When it is unprofitable to feed people, they are allowed to starve.

Even when our labor has conquered scarcity, capitalism must manufacture it to justify the existence of the capitalist system.

Poverty exists, not because we cannot feed the poor, but because we cannot satisfy the rich.

Capitalism is a useful tool for establishing the means to create needed products and to encourage innovation and competition. But the capitalists despise competition and will always seek to have a monopoly. A major role of government is to encourage competition and prevent monopolization.

Get this clear for yourself. 

There is a reason that you have 1300 references to police mistreating blacks and ZERO references to police mistreating whites. And it's NOT because police don't mistreat whites - derp.

Wanna deal with the racial problem in America? Find a mirror and do the work.

So long as you mischaracterize the PROBLEM, you will never identify the SOLUTION. Your media and your mentality are what stand between the problem and the solution - which makes you part of the problem.

My bringing to your attention that democrat jurisdictions are where the BLACK side of it takes place was intended to wake you up to the real problem - which is not race. After all, you are CERTAINLY not going to start thinking democrats are racist - are you? So it MIGHT loosen up your brain a bit and get you to THINK. Critically.

Your media keeps making it about race, which simply prevents us from dealing with the real issues - like **** qualified immunity derp. Like training protocols. Like putting a **** bridle on runaway cops and creating accountability.

No, it confirms that you consume biased reporting. The reason assaults against WHITE citizens do not receive equal press is that they are WHITE, and that would counter the narrative you are being fed. And the narrative you are being fed is a shibboleth to occupy small minds. 

Thought experiment: Imagine if a WHITE citizen had been acquitted under stand your ground for shooting a BLACK cop. Just THINK about that for one **** minute. Ya know how your media ignored that case, or called it a "SHOCKER" in the insignificant reportage that it DID provide?

You know full well that it would have been NATIONAL BANNER HEADLINES. White man kills black cop and walks - RAY CISSUM! And you would be parroting THAT **** along with the rest of your ****, like the useful idiot your media is training you to be.

And not fer nuthin? When police shoot people, they don't holler, "Black," or "***." They holler "GUN!"

simplejack » 10 Feb 2022, 2:05 pm » wrote: What do you think the cause of CCD is?
Honestly, I have no real answer that I can say definitively is the cause.

It's most likely a combination of things. First, we are using a LOT of nicotinomide insecticides that are supposed to be "bee friendly", but still, we see bees that have been exposed to it behaving weird. It affects their central nervous system dramatically and since it's brought into the hive and found in their comb, it stays in the hive a very long time affecting brood and the queen as well.

Second, we are seeing so many colonies wiped out due to varroa mites, an "introduced" mite from Asia, that has really brought viruses and other things to our bees that they simply can't deal with like the Asian bees did. It can overwhelm a hive in a couple of weeks if you don't get a handle on it FAST. Basically, you are trying to kill an insect ON an insect. That is challenging at best. And the other viral diseases that this causes is also destructive as it gets too.

Third, we don't have the longevity nor the productivity of the queen bee like it once was. Used to be a queen would produce for h4-5 years. Now, you are lucky if you get a full year to a year and a half out of her. You are constantly requeening, splitting hives to reproduce queens and even buying queens to keep you hives going.

Fourth, the foraging areas are being taken over by housing developments. There are few fence lines with weeds left for bees to find nectar and pollen at. The demand for pristine fence lines results in herbicide use that kills all the plants that bees survived on, produced honey from, and had a thriving colony as a result. No more. These HOA's "demand" you keep every weed and dandelion killed or else, and the honey bees have nothing to eat. And that means no brood to keep the colony alive. Sure that manicured lawn looks great, but you are destroying the foraging area our bees need to survive too.  Just stop killing the weeds on the fence lines and that alone would be a huge help.

So pick one you think is the culprit. As for me, I think it's a combination of all of the above.

Cont......

What has 50 years of UNICEF accomplished..?
More starving Africans than ever before.
What will increased welfare create...?
More welfare babies for YOU to raise than ever before.
We have never seen this way of thinking trend downward...ever.
All of our low skilled labor that can be replaced by robots WILL be replaced by robots.
Job opportunities for people who are marginally employable today will become increasingly scarce as time marches on.
We need to allow Darwin to do his thing..and even give Darwin some help..instead of finding more ways to work against Darwin.[/quote]

You are misinterpreting my position. I do not believe in unconditional welfare or "aid" to Africa. I am 100% opposed to mass immigration.

What I am doing is setting up an ideological framework that integrates "real economics" (studying economics from a position where you FIRST OBSERVE real world phenomena before making conclusions, [b]e.g. "Minimum Wage bad cuz my model says MW increases black unemployment"[/b] /facepalm) and then tying up loose ends.

Most economists begin with faulty assumptions...as they were predictably lied to by (((the propagandists))) in higher education as to disarm them to the true nature of how our economy works. Then these economists present doctrine/dogma as if they were fact...when they are not. Disarming people by supplying them with disinformation is a primary tactic of (((OUR FRIENDS))), and as much as you would loathe to admit, perhaps even you should consider the possibility you are a victim to their wiles on the subject of economics.

My argument, [b]if you carefully read my post (just above this one)[/b] is that welfare WORKS in primarily white, high-trust, and wealthy societies, because the typical European white is far more likely to "contribute" and provide some sort of value. The Danish welfare system is not going to collapse unless Danes suddenly have some kind of shift (in demographics, for example).

Look, I understand you dislike the idea of welfare. Nobody wants people to scrounge/leech off the system, and I do not find your sentiments unreasonable at all. But that is a [b]value judgment. [/b]It is irrelevant to the discussion of whether welfare seriously disincentives work.

Whether you like the idea of welfare or not does not change the fact that [b]the welfare system (e.g. in Denmark) "works" given their constraints/conditions and does not have a seriously negative impact on their employment rate. I have already shown you why this is the case. [/b]On the other hand you can certainly make the case that welfare does seriously disincentivize work among ****** as ****** do not have the same standards/values/"mental capacity" for work that is necessary to become middle class in modern America.

One final minor correction - [b]it is not our "tax money" that pays for these welfare types.[/b] I do not believe "our tax dollars" have paid for anything in decades...the way our system works is that whenever the federal government needs to spend something on whatever purpose they claim, the money (which is actually debt) is supplied by our [b]private banking system[/b] which then collects interest on the "loans" made. And it should not shock you a (((Certain group))) is there as recipients of the interest.

In reality your "tax dollars" probably go into "garbage collection" on some computer database linked to the IRS...the same way when you modify some cell on an Excel spreadsheet.

I apologize for my lengthy posts, but I feel obligated to correct misunderstandings when they arise, as I am first and foremost a seeker of truth.

Highly social animal such as humans...the society and the culture also is a necessary aspect if your 'environment'. 

this might FEEL confusing to the midwit because it is kinda abstract I guess. But even if a midwit devotes some thought to this I think it ought to become clear.

if you are a species like humans who RELY on cooperation to survive...then your culture becomes even less abstract than the sun is to Africans. 

And every community...every culture has its own rules about hierarchy, who reproduces, how cooperation occurs, etc. 

Different races must necessarily have adapted to different cultures...being necessary for survival.

it OUGHT to be easy to imagine what happens to a community composed of different individuals with totally different adaptations and instincts about how to fit in and cooperate with their community.

The Florentines had their neighborhood in Rome, the Neapolitans theirs, etc. And every neighborhood was distinct - some clean, some filthy; some ordered, some raucous. What the left wants is all of that - but in a blender, to get rid of any differences. The end of multiculturalism and of culture itself. 
New York is still like this to an extent.
Little Italy and Chinatown are not just tourist traps.
There are many distinct neighborhoods in the boroughs, and they exist nicely together.

Roll Out
Amazing how fast people stopped talking about Rona after the media stopped with the dire hourly stories of how white uneducated Trump supporters were defiantly spreading the disease. A claim that has always been more Jussie than journalism. Masks have dropped nation wide regardless of the local transmission rate.

You bet.  I was a divorced mother raising 3 young daughters. I spent most of my life chasing down my deadbeat ex husband for child support. I, at times, was a recipient of food banks; and later on a volunteer. I worked 2 full time jobs to pay college tuition for my daughters.  Plus I did overtime.  Some weeks I worked almost 100 hours.

I worked 40 grueling years to provide a future for my daughters and myself.

I did it all by myself.

Do you think I understand suffering?

I think it might help people understand who is male or female if we do a crash course on what biological sex actually is and why it came about. 

First of all it is not limited to humans. Many life forms do have a biological sex. And all of them have 2 sexes, like humans. 

Asexual reproduction worked fine for billions of years...and still works for rather simple organisms. 

But asexual reproduction has a downside: it is basically a clone. Therefore a species will change extremely slowly with a sexual reproduction which may be a good thing if it's survival strategy is simple and not much hurt by changes in circumstance...but is bad as a species becomes more complex and tries to exist in a particular ecological niche that is subject to change. 

The arms race therefore that initiated between predator and prey in the history of life resulted in the Cambrian explosion and also made greater genetic diversity imperative. 

Biological sex evolved as a way to provide this. Despite making reproduction more difficult...it does introduce a massive amount of genetic diversity...because the lifeform receives half the DNA from one parent and half from the other. 

The closer 2 parents are to each other genetically the closer the reproduction is to cloning. It also results in 'inbreeding depression' thay leftists love to accuse white people of. But there is also the opposite issue called 'outbreeding depression' which is that if the parents are very different genetically than any fine tuning their genes may have had is lost when they reproduce and their offspring is not particularly adapted to anything at all. 

it is very difficult to imagine why a third sex would ever be introduced because that wouldnonly make reproduction even more difficult while providing no extra amount of genetic diversity...it would still be a question of how genetically close the 3 sexes are... 

therefore even if we found some alien life form that also engaged I sexual reproduction logically we could assume they only have 2 sexes. A third sex would have no reason to evolve because it has no advantage.
