As much as I like seeing fascists being punched in the face... and having their heads stomped once hitting concrete...


I think the real story to watch is the abduction of Chinese businessperson. Its far bigger than France

It needs to be pointed out that the working class in the West has not just been screwed by the ruling elite, they have also been "screwed" by the abjectly poor, mostly in Africa, India and China.

WHAT?!?!?!?!

The working class of the West has been "screwed" by the abject poor in the 3rd World? ???  :icon_scratch:

OMFG.  ::)

RE

Maybe you didn't notice I put the word "screwed" in quotes before you did. Neither did your little buddy cernunno65. That's how most people think (especially on this forum) - they are victims of some other group of people out there. I try to stay away from that mindset as much as possible.

The point was, people in the West generally have no idea what their slow decline has purchased for the poorest people in the world. And even if they did know, they may not really care, because we (humans) experience much more negative emotion when we LOSE something than we experience positive emotion when we GAIN something.

That's a part of the reason why their living standard is what it is now and why they are rioting in the streets, even if they don't know it.


You just admitted you're addicted to mind sets....

To any real LGBT folks out there. I deeply apologize for that comment. You know I have got your back. My sword or fist is yours.

And you know Ashlyn didn't "Give" you anything. You fought for it and took it as Adam Smith recommended.

Point still stands.

Someone recently wrote, The choices we are offered are The Road Warrior or The Hunger Games. Lousy article but the title sums up the point.

I'm sick of hearing about "the productive class" being taxed. They are the parasitic class. Sure they work hard but so does a parasite and not nearly as hard as its host.

Girls, lets sing Killer Queen together

Okay, so I think we all agree that a dropping EROEI is at the heart of what is going on in France. No argument from me.

Not me, my thoughts are it's almost negligible.

Only voicing my different view for the record, it's a rebellion against elitists, globalists and is a worldwide movement manifesting most strongly in France at the moment but will rage soon enough among most developed nations in short order.

These people, rightly or wrongly, feel they have been screwed by the ruling elite and they are correct the way I see it. We have tens of millions of them, here in America, just waiting for an excuse to do likewise.

This is why Donald Trump is in the White House. Most just don't get it that it's big stuff and not a one country phenomenon. I must say however, this Macron is a real work of art. If anyone can piss off the poor and working class it's that jerk off. If there were an Olympics for nauseating elitist ass holes, He would be the Gold Medal Winner and Christine Lagarde the runner up for the Silver.

This France uprising will be considered a school yard quarrel once Italy explodes in Europe. Trust me, "You ain't seen Nothing yet." The entire status quo is under attack. Prepare for troubling times here and abroad.

It needs to be pointed out that the working class in the West has not just been screwed by the ruling elite, they have also been "screwed" by the abjectly poor, mostly in Africa, India and China. Many of these people are no longer starving. Many of them now earn a wage decent enough to keep their children fed well. A good portion of them even have access to cell phones and the digital information we take for granted.

Someone had to pay a price for that, a real big price, but perhaps a price worth paying.

The Diner Pantry / 🐔 Doomstead Diner Dinner Special: 12/11/2018

We landed at Casablanca International Airport in Morocco around 6PM, just slightly delayed due to headwinds and having to circle the airport for about 10 minutes waiting for landing clearance.

After lunch, I passed the time with Nikki going over Bridge strategies, so next time we have a Tournament with Amelia and Natasha we don't lose so miserably.  Julia has no interst in learning to play Brigdge but she does make great Hors d'Oeuvres when we play!   :icon_sunny:

While airborne, I made a reservation at Rick's Cafe for an 8 PM dinner, where else would you go for dinner in Casablanca? ???  :icon_scratch:

We all got dressed to the 9s, I even dusted off one of my Brooks Brothers Monkey Suits to wear for dinner.  It was (of course) FABULOUS!
