  1. Re: Russia Dumps 20% Of Its Treasury Holdings As Mystery "Belgium" Buyer Adds Another

    Thanks for continuing updates on an issue that most people won't take notice of until there's a stockmarket meltdown and Weimar Republic-level inflation.

    Re: Another fatal shooting

    I'm still a newspaper subscriber. But, we still have an independent...fairly decent local paper. And besides, when we're done reading it (which doesn't take long these days), they make good doggie...

    Re: It's Not the Gun that Kills!

    And what about "when you do not want to kill someone, but during a heated argument, pull out a gun and threaten someone?

    Point being that a gun makes homicide more likely for two reasons:

    Re: Another fatal shooting

    The cop's story sounds like a contrivance; especially after considering it along with a stack of recent stories on police abuse of powers in Ferguson. One of the highlights is the Daily Beast expose...

    Re: Another fatal shooting

    Yes, you are saying that! Not directly...just leaving the usual trail of breadcrumbs in the same way that the police chief did, who released that information just prior to his funeral.

  6. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    2nd try:

    Yes, and today's oligarchs can't convince people that they rule by the grace of God, they have to justify their wealth and power through appeals to property rights, the invisible hand of...

    Re: Debates and Discussions.

    I don't know whether I will consider this new forum....I took a look at a large active forum that was suggested to me previously, but there were things about it that made me reluctant to join in. ...
  8. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    I had what I thought was a great followup already to post and then either my browser or this board crashed and lost my data. I'll try to get back to it later when I have time.
  9. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    Like most Faux News reports, it's not good for much aside comedic value. But, it's worth noting that the rest of the MSM doesn't do much better! There are no in-depth reporting going on to get...
  10. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    Okay, but my point isn't whether capitalism modified to even out income and wealth disparities qualifies as socialism....it does to some people; but my issue is economics based on continuous growth. ...

    Re: Ebola.....why?

    Bitter-minded? The facts are that 99% of the medical research and drug research is done by public institutions, and then the drug companies swoop down on research they can gather up for free, and...
  13. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    I haven't been in a very cheerful mood since I read that study on increasing methane releases in the Arctic, that was published in Nature a week ago. Some scientists studying methane and trying to...
  14. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    The kind of socialism you are describing is social democratic rather than socialist. Real socialist economic options like the worker co-op movements have had to fight against both governments and...
  15. Re: Is the US ( world) addicted to violence?

    And, even a candidate with Ross Perot's money, can't get in the game anymore since the Parties took over the management of the presidential debates from the League of Women Voters.

    The main reason: Israel is the proving ground for new U.S. weapons as well as tactics and strategies for urban warfare and population management. Israel "advises" many other nations besides the U.S....

    Re: Ebola.....why?

    Sounds like a great reason to do nothing! Now that there are strains of Ebola virus that appear to be far more contagious than previously, we should expect that number to climb dramatically, even if...
