  1. Were you serving in Honolee? edit. They have video of the AC 47 being used in Vietnam. I didn't watch. "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" is even worse. Though I did watch some old WWII footage of flamethrowers being used. gross.
  2. I see Lil Kim called El Presidente an erratic old man. Chill out you dictatorial queen. What happened to you as you grew up? Let it go, let it go Can't hold it back anymore Let it go, let it go Turn my back and slam the door The snow blows white on the mountain tonight Not a footprint to be seen A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the queen The wind is howling like the swirling storm inside Couldn't keep it in Heaven knows I try Let it go. Let it go. . . . (someday I wish upon a star) Where the clouds are far behind me (And wake up where the clouds are far behind me) Where. All my troubles melt like lemon drops. Way above the chimney tops, (way above the chimney tops) That is where you will find me. Somewhere over the rainbow, Bluebirds fly. If birds can fly over the rainbow, Then why, then why can't I be safe and a good man?
  3. I remember BB was not happy with my little joke that spelled "the jews" as "the juice." Joos is a similar misspelling. I think one of the funniest fictional names ever is "Henny Penny." Is that from some children's story? I forget. Ms Money Penny, are you free tonight? Sorry James. I am watching you right now in "Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade." You look older.
  4. Michael wrote: That's why ruling class elitists, including those idiots who wrote and monitored the Wikipedia article, try to paint Q as a cult with specific weird-sounding jargon and beliefs. Q scares the shit out of them--like bombs are supposed to. end quote Thanks Michael. That was very informative and well said. I agree that it is correct to have backlash against the polarized left wing media but my fear is that “unknown sources” who suggest conspiracies can have a worrisome effect on anyone who does not fact check and use reason. Oddly, since I asked the question of “who Q was” I saw something on the net that referenced Qanon and suggested that just as with radical Muslim terrorist web sites, Q radicalizes The Right with propaganda, unverified sources, and dirty tricks. Should tricksters and divulgers worry about the unstable people they may influence, to use violence or promote violence? I suppose planting ideas in the minds of the gullible is not Q’s worry but websites that don’t self-censor are not my cup of tea. I suppose it is the same concern that some have about Fox News right wing analyses and selection of stories and the other three main networks left wing analyses and selection of stories. Of course, everyone has an agenda, but “the news” should be based on facts. As Walter Cronkite used to say, “And that’s the way it is.” I was not totally sure about the extent of his left wing bias until he retired and let loose with both barrels from his bent mind, and another leftie who could fool the gullible was Dan Rather. It might be interesting to see an analysis of the “truthiness” of all news sources. Peter
  5. I have his mojo on my computer. I thought he was interesting before and after I found out he has two Hispanic wives.
  6. What is Q? Brief synopsis? I haven"t been following.
  7. To me the worst part would be dressing up to go to a cocktail party to mingle with that crowd. Anthony wrote: What's been irritating to me is that while ARI authors show their expertise when they mostly stick with pure Objectivist theories, and finding new ways to re-present them - they are singularly poor at applying theory to reality (or, as you say, applying reality to the ideas, rationalistically). end quote They remind me of the anarchists. Never happened unless you count lawlessness. Never gunna happen. Wishin’ and hopin’ ain’t gunna bring it to our hearts. The best Objectivists can hope for is politicians and movements like libertarianism that are grounded and even founded with a nod towards Ayn Rand.
  8. Some notes from Fox. Will we have five years of prosperity? It is “likely” according to an analyst on Fox Business. The DOW is up 337.27 points today for a total of 28,015.06. There are more job openings than there are people unemployed. Some of those openings may be because the unemployed are not qualified which is why businesses are putting more time, money and effort into job training. President Trump promises he is going to deregulate even more. Catastrophes like war can harm the economy, but if there is no war who knows how high the DOW and the economy will surge? Of course the Democrats ignorantly argue that regular people don’t have dealings with the stock market, but they do through their employment and retirement plans. When companies are doing good, Americans are doing better or at least have more opportunities to thrive. Hail to the Chief! Now who will run in 2024? I think a candidate who vows to continue President Trump’s good practices will be a shoo-in. Pence may or may not run. Who knows? I think that if our Veep receives more press, more tasks, and more praise from President Trump from 2021 onwards, his chances of running will increase. Peter

  10. From The Economist Dec. 5. Biden 27, Warren 18, Sanders 13, Buttgieg 12, Bloomberg 3. Democrats' Diversity -- Only in the Back of the Bus, By Patrick Buchanan December 06, 2019. The "Our diversity is our strength!" Party is starting to look rather monochromatic in its upper echelons these days. The four leading candidates for its presidential nomination -- Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg -- are all white. The six candidates who have qualified for the Dec. 19 debate -- the front four, plus Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer -- are all white. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer are both white, as are Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Whip Dick Durbin. The chairs of the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees managing impeachment, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler, are both white. And as Congressman Al Green railed Wednesday, all three experts Nadler invited to make the Democrats' case for impeachment were white law professors. How come? Absent affirmative action by the DNC, neither Cory Booker, the leading black candidate for the nomination, nor Julian Castro, the leading Hispanic, will be on the stage Dec. 19. But though there is zero racial diversity among the top six Democrats in the presidential field, there is gender, ethnic and ideological diversity. Warren would be the first woman president; Sanders, the first Jewish nominee; and Buttigieg would be the first gay nominee. Yet the lack of racial diversity across the party hierarchy is going to put immense pressure on Joe Biden, should he win the nomination. If he hopes to reunite the Obama coalition, a woman and/or person of color as his running mate would seem an absolute imperative . . . . Bernie Sanders, an unapologetic socialist who went to the Soviet Union, Reagan's "Evil Empire," for his honeymoon, is holding on to half of the loyal base from his impressive 2016 race against Hillary Clinton. The other half of Bernie's base, however, has been captured by Warren. In October, she took the lead in national polls, only to lose that lead when she could not explain how, without major new taxes on the middle class, she could abolish private health insurance and put the entire country on the Medicare rolls . . . .
  11. Deep thoughts. Black people and Arabs rarely or never left Africa or areas close to Africa until later in human history, so they were never “CAVEMEN.” Only the people who left the African continent are referred to as cavemen. Is that discriminatory? Inflammatory? A slur based on territory? I suggest we use better terms that are nondiscriminatory, and instead congratulatory for successfully moving the whole household to another continent. History will thank you.
  12. Oh yeah. And not to be outdone as a candidate to play Jack Ryan, James Bond, and a fictional President named Daniel Trump, Daniel Craig became an American citizen! He’s working on his American accent too. Peter From ET Canada. Daniel Craig Confirms He Has An American Passport: ‘I’m Incredibly Proud’ By Shakiel Mahjouri. 21 Nov 2019 10:56 PM. The “No Time to Die” James Bond actor addressed his citizenship status at the “Knives Out” premiere in Los Angeles. There has often been speculation about Craig’s status and he confirmed to People he is an immigrant to the U.S. “Everybody in this country’s an immigrant,” Craig said. “That’s what the country’s built upon. We can’t forget it. We can’t just dismiss it … but it’s difficult, and it takes thought, and it takes smart people thinking about it instead of dividing people along party lines … and also along this anger that kind of builds up.” “It needs to be discussed… and that’s hard,” he continued. “Good things are hard to do. I’m incredibly proud to be part of this, to have an American passport and call myself an immigrant in this country.” Craig, 51, is thrilled to be living in the present: “I’m part of an amazing period in history that created this country and I’m proud to be a part of it.” “Knives Out” premieres Nov. 27 and stars Craig alongside Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Don Johnson and Katherine Langford.
  13. As the world turns, Biden is making more gaffs. Fair is fair. Wormy Bernie. Foreign Warren. Lie-in Biden. Bloomin’ Onion Bloomberg. I propose a socialist wealth tax. Everyone who is running or voting for socialist programs that confiscate YOUR money, should pay The Socialist Tax. All extra revenues can be directed to the socialist programs these un-American bastards want to “privately” fund. I propose a 90 percent tax rate for them and a 99 percent tax rate for all socialist billionaires. Isn’t “socialist billionaire” an oxymoron anyway? Peter Notes. Democrats Release Tax Hike Plan by Ryan Ellis . . . . Increase the top marginal income tax rate from 37 percent to 39.6 percent. This nearly 3 percentage point increase in the top personal rate is not only a hike in the top bracket levy, but it's also a direct tax increase on small and mid-sized businesses. The 30 million companies which are organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, Subchapter-S corporations, and LLCs pay their business taxes on their owners' 1040 personal tax returns. Hiking the top tax rate is a small business tax increase. Increasing personal income taxes would be particularly unfortunate since workers are now seeing the results of lower rates in their paychecks. Thanks to the new IRS withholding tables, in February of this year over 90 percent of workers saw higher take home pay in the form of fatter direct deposits (for a humorous spectacle of the New York Times desperately trying to get people to down-talk their bigger paychecks, click here). They will continue to see those bigger paydays for as long as the tax rates in law remain in effect. This higher tax home pay is a down payment on a lower tax liability. Typical families of four should see their federal income tax decline from $2000 to $4000, depending on their income level and number of children. Increase the corporate income tax rate from 21 percent to 25 percent. Up until this year, the United States labored under the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world. As a result, jobs and capital were fleeing America for more normal tax rates that could be found in tax havens like France and China (sarcasm font very much activated). Finally, after many years of bipartisan consensus that the U.S. corporate rate had become an impediment to attracting new jobs and investment, Congress cut the rate all the way from 35 to 21 percent. Even doing that only puts us in the middle of the pack of developed nations, but that's a heck of a lot better than dead last.
  14. GRIPE! The Allstate commercial with Tina Fey and a guy pretending to be a Saint Bernard puppy. As they are driving down the road the guy licks Tina Fey’s face. Seriously? Who would lick Tina Fey’s face. Ah, come on. That’s just not realistic. Joke.
  15. As I mentioned years before a Philadelphia doctor was censored, lost his license and may have done jail time for aborting and or delivering babies until their heads were visible and then he killed them with a needle before the baby was fully revealed. I think several nurses turned the bastard in.
