  2. The Screws are tightening on Iran

    Yes, I'm sure the poor wee lambs are misunderstood and ill treated by we warmongers in the U.S.
  3. Yes there is. There are at least a couple of studies that can be googled. In a report published last Thursday, neuroscience researchers from the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London announced that they had found evidence that liberals and conservatives actually have different brain structures. Cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Ryota Kanai and colleagues conducted MRI scans of 118 college students whose self-reported political views ranged from "very liberal" to "very conservative." Many areas of the subjects' brains showed no difference based on political orientation. But the subjects classifying themselves as "liberal" had a higher volume of gray matter in the anterior cingulate cortex of their brains than study participants who classified themselves as "conservative." The anterior cingulate cortex is believed to play a role in helping people cope with and sort through uncertainty and conflicting information, as well as affecting their levels of emotional awareness and empathy. The "conservative" participants, on the other hand, had a higher volume of gray matter in the right amygdala region -- which is thought to play a big role in identifying and responding to threats. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2011/04/are-liberals-and-conservatives-hard-wired-to-disagree/237075/ Seems like it would be better and safer for all if we learned to work together. Not likely though is it.
  4. The Screws are tightening on Iran

    The US has been trying to pick a war with Iran for half a century and more. Ever since their oil became a threat to the Saudi's and the petrodollar. They even gave chemical weapons to Saddam during the Iran-Iraq conflict because they were about to invade Iraq at Basra. Those same chemical weapons Saddam used to murder thousands of Kurds and the ones Bush went after in 2003. The US has been interfering in Iranian politics since the 1950's and people wonder why they hate your country and your foreign policy makers. You might think Israel is in danger of an Iranian attack but history in the region suggests otherwise and above all, guess who are the (only) ones with the nukes?
  5. Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    I told you Mueller wouldn't find any crimes and definitely no collusion. Score one for me. I told you Mueller would write an incendiary report that would keep you and people like you, p***ed off and still with hope until the election. Score two for me. What is your score grommy? Yeah,a big old goose egg so why are you crowing kike you actually know something? You're clueless son and have been on he wrong side of things since day one so have a little humility, I never took you for a brain dead leftist but maybe I need to change that opinion.
  6. Yesterday
  7. "Terrorists" kill 200+ in Sri Lanka

    Just saw a far left posting where everyone was going on about what Clinton and Obama said. Many were atheists or agnostics who attended church on Easter only because their family did. It shouldn't be painful to say that. They aren't worshippers but attendees. That's ok. People need to stop dodging and just say it as it is.
  8. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    https://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/23/us/politics/joe-biden-argued-for-delaying-supreme-court-picks-in-1992.html Uh...no...
  9. I mentioned in another thread the incidents my brother and I had when we were in grade school. Over the years things have happened that are unexplainable and weird. When I lived in Texas I had a long distance relationship with a man whose nephew hung himself. The night I was told about it, which was a couple of days after it happened I lit a candle for him. The table where I had lit the candle had some crystals and other stones on one side by the candle and a cd player on the other. In the middle of sleep I was awoken by a crashing sound and the cd player opening and closing the cd tray 3 times. I was tired and didn't get up to investigate. The next morning I found the candle still burning but the rocks were strewn all over the living room as if someone had swiped them off the table. The cd player never worked right again, either it would act like it had no power or the cd tray would just open and close. I sent it to the manufacturer to get it fixed (which was a waste since I lived 20 miles from the place I had to mail it, but they would not let people just drop stuff off). When I got it back I opened the box and a huge puff of cigarette smoke came out, as if someone had puffed a bunch of smoke in the box before taping it up. I figured it was a disgruntled employee because the cd player was not fixed and the case was attached cockeyed. I sent it back and they replaced the mother board, but it never worked again and I just gave up on it. A few years later I quit my job and moved back to New Mexico to take care of my mother in the home I grew up in. I also took care of my grandsons and sometimes my dad would call asking for help. My parents had been divorced since the 90's. Anyway, i was making cookies with my grandson and after I put the spices back in the cupboard and closed the door I turned back to the counter and the cupboard door flew open and all the spices flew out. Some of them hit me in the head, the ones in glass bottles broke. I did not know at the time, but it was the same day that the police had picked up my dad and taken him to court ordered rehab. He built those cupboards when he remodeled that kitchen in the 80's. Later my dad told me and my brother that he blamed us for being locked up, he never has been one to accept responsibility for his bad behavior. I have my ideas of what went on with the cupboard, but I have no clue what was going on with the rocks and the CD player. I did not know the young man who hung himself as I had only met him twice so I just chock it up to general weirdness that I experience often.
  10. I don't believe you

    Hi Golden Duck Thanks, I will take a look at it. I no longer live in that city as I moved to be here for my grand-daughter and left everyone I knew behind, basically never said goodbye or where I was going so I haven't spoken to anyone besides a 2 relatives in a decade and left a death notice on my facebook account so that people wouldn't waste time trying to contact me. The city I grew up in populated many other places in different provinces so I knew good people that were willing to help because they left back home because of crime, bigotry and opportunity I stayed home and grew with the city and knew a lot of people in several circles of life including the heads and soldiers of all of the organized groups but never aligned with any of them even though they had all tried to recruit me because of those contacts. I always walked alone and never asked anyone to back me but had a bit of a rep for fighting and some herbal multi level marketing which is legal now but not part my life anymore. Still to this day I always carry a knife and keep a handy assortment of tools for my trade(construction) in my vehicle and still walk alone. jmccr8
  11. Is Handwashing As Important As They Say?

    .. haha yeah reminds me Grandpa we called him GAPA he was outside the majority of the time no his LIFE HA! and anyway was always made to wash when he came in and I think he didn`t care for it either hehehehee! but !!!!!! if sitting down to the dinner then WASHING UP WAS MANDITORY!
  12. I don't believe you

    Not to anyone of influence at the time. I think that's more because the oppressed now well outnumber oppressors. Quite frankly though, I see the POTUS in a similar light myself. Talking about grabbing married women on the you know what strikes me as zero respect for the people he is supposed to looking after but such bad behaviour is brushed aside quite quickly and easily.
  13. The FDIC receives no Congressional appropriations - it is funded by premiums that banks and thrift institutions pay for deposit insurance coverage and from earnings on investments in U.S. Treasury securities. The FDIC insures trillions of dollars of deposits in U.S. banks and thrifts - deposits in virtually every bank and thrift in the country. https://www.fdic.gov/about/learn/symbol/index.html
  14. gyroscope as a microphone for the vestibular

    Here's another attempt at a gyroscope speaker. I thought by maybe holding the coil to a normal speaker still and dangling a spinning gyro with a magnet in the coil's vicinity might work. FAIL.
  15. Venezuelan Revolt on the Horizon?

    And there we have you resorting to the ad hominem. These popular Popular Will candidates weren't even named in that link. That's a pretty big detail if you're really motivated by human rights. I guess there's some other motivation. And there's still no reason for the UN declining the invitation to observe the Venezuelan elections. The chronology of J4O goes over your head. Maduro stops foreign aid to US poverty and he's guilty of giving aid and treason. Text book non sequitur.
  16. Hawken

    Mowed my lawn for the first time this year. I had these wild onions growing in my yard. Everytime I mowed over them. tears would come to my eyes.:D

  17. Yes it was free speech translates into donating to whomever you choose. This is a reach. Will it be tested? Will a corporation be able to defend itself by saying this customer would cause them to lose much business if we allow him to maintain an account? I think they may test it. Is it free speech to refuse service to a party you disagree with? In a sense this is even cleaner than race. religion. and sexual orientation because it is all about political free speech. The bank might argue that their service contributes business and funds to a cause they do not believe in. I am not a lawyer, but I bet a lot of legal disagreement could result. For an average citizen, it could be bad if political belief can result in denial of service. It doesn't matter if it is a conservative organization this time, it could be a liberal one next time.
  18. Yeah and the Supreme Court just agreed with them...... So why not this guy? Edit to add: If the Supreme Court ruled on this issue, it's the law of the land. With that in mind, what did this guy expect?
  19. Chase Bank Closing "Alt-Right" Accounts

    That's what the baker said to the SC. Oopsie!
  20. IRS fails to hand over Trump tax returns

    The IRS needs some breathing room, I expect. With their new authority, the House is on fire with no water in sight. That fire began with a decisive election. As for house Trump .....
  21. Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    Sheesh, you always get mad when someone tells you that you were right?
  22. I'm not surprised. I mean if you are a hard core right wing guy you really shouldn't make your entire business dependent on a company with a democrat CEO. Why can't this guy take his business elsewhere, btw?
  23. number of personal stars

    My stars, so shiny, so beautiful.
  24. Is this Atlantis? Why not just name it Atlantis then if it was such a known quantity? You mention Zeus and Cronos. You do realize those are fictional characters right?
  25. Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    Who F'ing cares? Listen melon head, I didn't say tomorrow, it will be over the next few months and you best not play like you are way ahead here, you have been losing since this started and the Mueller report must've crushed you. I called it exactly and what did you call? LMAO
  26. The Screws are tightening on Iran

    From what I have been reading and from one of Trump's tweets it will be great news for Saudi Arabia. Trump is pushing those who had contracts with Iran and Venezuela to switch to them.
