    Epstein found Dead in Jail

    Probably. After all, he had to keep casting his net to find other buyers for his product. He HAD to be friends with the rich and famous if he wanted to find more rich fish. But the ones who still associated with him AFTER everyone knew what he was need a closer look.

    Epstein found Dead in Jail

    Trump has 22+ sexual assault accusations against him. Of course he needs to be included in the discussion. But he was a sleazeball long before he was president. I don't give a hoot who's involved in this. Take them all to jail. I simply have no politics involved when kids are being assaulted and women raped.

    Trump wants the US to buy Greenland

    I don't see any mention of a price being offered by Trump, to my mind if you offer to buy something that isn't on the market, you better name the price you are prepared to pay. What sort of businessman wouldn't ?
  8. That's no secret. It's around $250,000 US per ticket.
  9. More compliments? But I have to score one for your psychic abilities, as I'm super lazy, and much more than you are able to perceive. You, as a professed professor, should have explained the rhetoric about Art 11. It seems that the young nation, apart paying a ransom , it was also giving lip service to the Muslims to avert further conflicts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli Article 11 Article 11 has been and is a point of contention in popular culture disputes on the doctrine of separation of church and state as it applies to the founding principles of the United States. Some religious spokesmen claim that—despite unanimous ratification by the U.S. Senate of the text in English which contained Article 11—the page containing Article 11 is missing from the Arabic version of the treaty.[12] The contemporaneous purpose of Article 11 was to make clear that the United States was a secular state[14] and to reassure the Muslims that the agreement was not with an extension of earlier Christian nations that took part in the Crusades.[15] Article 11 Article 11 reads: Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen (Muslims); and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan (Mohammedan) nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries. According to Frank Lambert, Professor of History at Purdue University, the assurances in Article 11 were "intended to allay the fears of the Muslim state by insisting that religion would not govern how the treaty was interpreted and enforced. John Adams and the Senate made clear that the pact was between two sovereign states, not between two religious powers." Lambert writes, By their actions, the Founding Fathers made clear that their primary concern was religious freedom, not the advancement of a state religion. Individuals, not the government, would define religious faith and practice in the United States. Thus the Founders ensured that in no official sense would America be a Christian Republic. Ten years after the Constitutional Convention ended its work, the country assured the world that the United States was a secular state, and that its negotiations would adhere to the rule of law, not the dictates of the Christian faith. The assurances were contained in the Treaty of Tripoli of 1797 and were intended to allay the fears of the Muslim state by insisting that religion would not govern how the treaty was interpreted and enforced. John Adams and the Senate made clear that the pact was between two sovereign states, not between two religious powers.[16] Episcopal minister and educator Anson Phelps Stokes noted that "those who wished to deny that the United States as a government has any special regard for the Christian religion...[have ] almost invariably failed to call attention to the fact that the treaty was superseded, less than a decade later, by another 'Treaty of Peace and Amity,' signed in Tripoli June 4, 1805, in which the clause in question...is omitted."[17] Later dissent A prominent member of Adams' cabinet, Secretary of War James McHenry, claimed that he protested the language of Article 11 before its ratification. He wrote to Secretary of the Treasury Oliver Wolcott, Jr., September 26, 1800: "The Senate, my good friend, and I said so at the time, ought never to have ratified the treaty alluded to, with the declaration that 'the government of the United States, is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.' What else is it founded on? This act always appeared to me like trampling upon the cross. I do not recollect that Barlow was even reprimanded for this outrage upon the government and religion."

    Dyatlov Pass

    Sorry, I've been out of this thread for a while (since I last replied in here actually!) but I wanted to mention the theory of the person's bones breaking with the weight of snow that's fallen slowly onto the body. It wouldn't cause bruising obviously, although the possibility of the weight of the snow could break the bones? I'm sorry I've just popped in like this out of the blue. I shall come back tomorrow as I'm so tired I need to sleep now, but I just saw this and remembered the snowfall theory for the fractures and thought, quickly, mention it. *yawns* see you good folk tomorrow

    Iran tries to hijack vessel British Heritage

    Indeed you might. I'd suggest you start by reading your own link. Asymmetric warfare refers to the differing capabilities of belligerents, not the theatres they operate in. You are correct that I was talking about reciprocity. As we're you when you first mentioned retaliation (same thing). You just got it wrong. I'm well aware. That's why you stay so uninformed.

    New Zealanders hand over guns in Christchurch

    But the founding of America was all about the individuals and their wants. I don't really know the history of New Zealand...but I do know the history of the United States and it began with a big Bang of gunfire involving the British soldiers of King George. Wyatt Earp cleaned up Tucson Arizona by taking guns at the City Limit. But then again...Mayor Giulliani cleaned up New York City just by enforcing existing laws which resulted in a large number of guns off the streets.

    Opening gambits in EU / UK exit negotiations;

    most of them are stepping down anyway, Dominic Grieve, Ken Clarke etc.... they know the game is up for them. Its like the news yesterday project fear once more, The latest outpouring of nonsense about how the ports will cease to work and we will be short of imports is bizarre. Both Calais and Dover have said they are ready for smooth working after October 31, whilst other Belgian and Dutch ports are applying competitive pressure as they would love to take more of the business. Calais/Dover have to deal with VAT, Excise and currency changes whilst we are in the EU so adding a few tariffs if some are needed does not create some new problem we haven’t already solved for other taxes. HMRC have said they don’t want to hold imported goods up with lots of new checks. I am not worried about Brexit but I am worried about the danger of Project Fear as so many gullible people have been taken in. - take fuel shortages that was mentioned in this 'leaked' report it only applied to the local area around the Port of Dover, but the impression was allowed to grow to mean national shortage. strange when fuel arrives via seaborne oil tankers Then we have medicines and shortage, The NHS holds three months supply anyway. The suppliers of medicines haven't said their no longer going to supply their products or block their delivery. nor have the UK said were going to block there importation. The question i want answering who are people that are going to hold up the supply of medicine? I see Corbyn who understands he has no chance of ever being Prime minster wants to recall Parliament to debate Brexit, what on earth have they been doing for the last 3 years ? They don’t want to debate it they want to stop it, well the time for debate is over it’s now time to leave. IF we leave with no Deal remainers only have themselves to blame for 3 years they've been fighting the EU's rearguard action for them instead of trying to get a deal for the UK. The EU offered the remainers in parliament a deal and Parliament voted it down three times. So the choice is clear its the EU deal which you've voted down three times or transition to WTO deal.

    The article is about sleep deprivation as a factor of loneliness. Yes, I am very close to my family and kids. Not all of us are religious either. I have friend who recently divorced, he had no family, no friends, so he hit the local bar and made friends, created a support system out of them and met a wonderful lady whom he is now in a serious relationships with, and he is very happy, he isn’t religious, just practical and industrious.

    Spiritual or science

    So, I googled LBRP. The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, or LBRP for short, is a tool to assist you in maintaining your own Light, and protect you from the overwhelming sea of emotions and energies flying about the world. One can only 'banish' the negativism of others by maintaining one's own positive thought process.

    "Gay Cake" row goes to European Courts

    He's spewing nonsense that has been disproved by science for decades. So forgotten and ridiculed are some of his views that I'm genuinely surprised that anyone can still believe such things in 2019. Even his misguided opinion on gender is increasingly being shown to have a biological, not merely environmental, explanation. He even states that psychology sees homosexuality as an 'identity problem' (it doesn't - it views it as neither a problem nor an identity issue), then moves right on to conflate sexual preference and gender. And he offers no evidence to support his opinions. In short, he has absolutely no ****ing idea what he's talking about - at all - and it would be a waste of time to argue with a pseudo intellectual of this magnitude. But then, if you read his last sentence, all becomes clear. 'Do not argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience'.

    Epstein found Dead in Jail

    I think that's a very valid point @Kismit regarding the #metoo movement. A lot of these girls would have felt shamed and most likely didn't tell anyone of their ordeals. In all likelihood, if the women who came forward with the Weinstein case hadn't paved the way for women of all ages to speak out, we'd probably still be living in an era where women stay quiet due to the shame or fear of ridicule or disbelief by society. The flipside is what I mentioned earlier in a post - I really hope the girls who would be grown women now, have some type of evidence like Guiffre had, otherwise it could end up looking like a bunch of random females coming out of the woodwork to try to claim fame/money without some sort of evidence to back up their claims. I'm all for the victims receiving justice as long as the evidence is there. And then people would say, what do the victims do if they don't have evidence but horrid mental scars of the abuse they endured. I really don't know.
