Re: Saint Stalin

Greg, "And no matter how strange it may seem to you in your little bubble, ..." How dare you impugn my bubble size! "It is quite as big for me, said he, as yours is big for you." That's fine, all of us live inside our little bubble, but the Russian bubble is HUGE and it does not conform all that we...

Re: Advice

There really isn't much else I can say without knowing specifics. Divorce feels like the end of the world but it's not. The best choices involve thinking about ten years in the future. My ex wives and kid think I did a great job ten years on. I was very tough and returned every blow while always sui...

Re: Religious nones are the new #1

Most religions were designed for social control. They generally produce obedient slaves and citizens without critical thinking skills. New religions are needed that do not exclusively serve hierarchy.

Re: Breaking the law = bad karma?

Slavery was legal. Killing Indians and selling their scalps to the government was legal. All wars are legal for the winners. If you think following rules makes you pure you are a fool.

Source? Can't you use google? My profile pic is me in my CBRN gear from back in the day. I can't validate your claim as a fact until I find the source and if such source is credible. If it's from a conspiracy theory website, then I will automatically reject it and I've already blocked Fox News from...

Re: Chinese Scientists Have Put Human Brain Genes In Monkeys

honestly this is a nightmare scenario. It's similar to the recent story of a maverick Chinese scientist who claimed to have genetically altered an infant female. These people are literally messing with genomes. It's what Frankenstein was about, only a lot more real, and a lot scarier. It wasn't a c...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

I wish I was wrong Queequeg. But after awhile in the intelligence and state security community I bet the farm on the system being completely corrupt. So now I'm retired on Captains pay. A Pyrrhic victory since I was hoping the system was what it pretended to be. The system is equitable enough that i...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

For that to be true Trump would need to have fundamentally changed the Republican agenda. The opposite happened. Trump changed his agenda to fit the establishment. Nothing actually changed. Repubs will break a bunch of stuff and make you fix it. Once you fix it they will break it again. You may win ...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

As I wrote, Trump getting elected blew it all up. As soon as he got elected, the powers that be are practical, and they went on their pilgrimages to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring, but he's not their guy. He is a literal, useful idiot. This means, its possible to break out of that control you're talki...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

In my city the police collected homeless people and newly released rapists and dropped them off at our local Occupy near city hall. Half the black bloc anarchists trying to throw things and light fires were police. Then the police stole everyone's tents and belongings. It was a coordinated crackdown...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

It became very clear to me that our democracies were controlled like our economy when studying candlestick charting for securities. The ranges of policy were too exactly constrained. It became clear we were in a falling channel. The rich know if they go to 99% of what they want and stay there revolt...

Re: Wrinkles & Aging Skin

Stop worrying and frowning so much. Try the Taoist inner smile technique. https://www.universal-tao.com/article/smile.html Or since facial feedback alters neural activity just cheat and get Botox. It has the oddest side effect of reducing anxiety. https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/blog/slightly-bli...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

Queequeg to me the problem is the liberal classes have sold out. During the New Deal there were strong communist movements in the US and Canada. The liberal technocratic classes were given the job of tempering the worst impulses of the capitalist class. They were allowed, even encouraged to make inc...

Re: Blessed Be The Fruit

I'm curious... How do you figure the rule of law is not normative and functioning? The countless civilians we murdered when I was in the army. Oh wait they were brown or Muslim. Doesn't count. Yes. Terrible. Not a new phenomenon though. Not evidence of the decline of rule of law. I realize that sou...
