Re: Russia земля борца самбо

6. Is the equal sovereignty of other people and their governments recognized?
Every country sticks its nose into other countries' businesses. It's annoying. One thing you can say about North Korea is they don't interfere. If you can ignore the occasional missile.

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

Very good. However... Democracy is not the same as being able to decide what is best for oneself and one's family. The nuances therein is the story of America! Being self sufficient is one of the best things about Americans...although it leads to e.g. the worst healthcare in the world outside lots o...

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

Clearly the world is conglomerating into four clusters:

Russia + satellites
China + satellites
Religious nut cases
Pursuers of life, liberty and PB&J sandwiches

Re: Stupid question of the day

Charge laptop, pen, headset,... Plan where to put the children while lecturing. Hope internet is stable. Don't drink too many cups of tea.

Re: Why can't I access an article?

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

Below is from Putin's days as a rock star. I don't read or speak Russian, so someone will have to translate. Might have some clues to his state of mind?

Re: Random Republican WINGNUTS (or RRWs as they are affectionately known as)

It used to be "1984" as the model. You're suggesting that it's now "The Handmaids' Tale." Not my kind of literature. Imagine the level of government control to make sure nobody receives abortion pills in the mail. It will make the (amazingly stupid) “war on drugs” look like a ki...

Re: Random Republican WINGNUTS (or RRWs as they are affectionately known as)

Americans are obsessed with their Constitution and Bill of Rights. They twisted a few casual mentions of “privacy” to apply to abortions(!). Clutching at straws. Amazing that it’s lasted this long.

Sun: Yes. But same for front and rear, see below Headwind: I like it! Heat: Another good one. From light bulb or engine? Clear poly: I am comparing clear front and clear rear. But I don’t know what they are made of Geometry: This will affect sun exposure and wind. But I have upper and lower front li...

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

I've only ever met one nice Russian. All the others were unpleasant. But they probably weren't rapists. So I cannot imagine what the worst are like.

Re: Stupid question of the day
