  1. Why You Shouldn’t Be A Socialist #3 I tried to put a book review of Why You Should Be a Socialist on Amazon and met a barrier that was new to me. "We apologize but this account has not met the minimum eligibility requirements to write a review. If you would like to learn more about our eligibility requirements, please see our community guidelines." The guidelines say to post a review you must have spent at least $50 on Amazon.com in the past 12 months. I did spend more than $50 in the past 12 months. However, part was with a gift card, and my net spent was less than $50. 🙂

  3. No, fabricator. I didn't fall for an "illusion" and said nothing about being being dazzled. I dared the conceptually and mechanically inept Jonathan to explain why what happens does happen. He failed. You and Brant also didn't explain why or even feel it was needed. I'm not surprised. None of you saw the significance of the center of the moving coin. Déjà vu. Analysis and Solution Why does the moving coin make two rotations? From start to end the center of the moving coin travels a circular path. The radius of that path is twice either coin's radius. Hence, the circumference of the path is twice either coin's circumference. How much the moving coin rotates around its own center en route, even if none, or in what direction -- clockwise, counterclockwise, or some of both -- has no effect on the length of the path. That the coin rotates twice per the description on Wikipedia makes a distraction.
  4. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. You are still a lying, obnoxious ignoranus. Doderage? Are you senile? Here's your chance to improve or mutilate Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coin_rotation_paradox Edit the page to explain why the phenomena happens. I bet you can't do so correctly and without help. But you can show your stupidity to many people not on OL.

  6. Do you? Ask MSK, moron. Maybe he'll tell you what he pretends to know about what's on Trump's mind. He didn't or wouldn't tell me anything relevant. Mere word games and smoke screens. Nothing about planting trees or bigger subsidies.
  7. Why You Shouldn’t Be A Socialist #1
  8. Heh. I get it fine. You either can't or don't want to explain: - why Trump declared that the U.S. will join the pledge to plant a trillion trees that intake carbon dioxide, and - why Trump signed legislation to hand out much bigger subsidies to companies for sequestering carbon dioxide, increasing one subsidy from $10 per ton to $35 per ton and another subsidy from $20 per ton to $50 per ton. Maybe Trump succumbed to little Greta at Davos. 🙂 The video of Scott Adams you posted was mostly a big waste of time. The part you alleged as relevant turned out to be a smoke screen. I’m not interested in your word games or your ploys to dodge my question.
  9. You failed to answer my question. I’m not interested in your word games or your ploys to avoid my question. I’m not interested in your method of trying to control the conversation so that you can dodge my question. Does that sound familiar?
  10. My other question was: Why does President Trump seem concerned enough about climate change to say "nothing's a hoax" and do the two things I referenced to fight it?

  12. Strike two. Here comes a change-up pitch. Maybe. 🙂 Why does President Trump seem concerned enough about climate change to say "nothing's a hoax" and do the two things I referenced to fight it? Are they mere vote chasing?
