Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Trump’s very statesmanlike New Year's message was directed to “EVERYONE INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA”. Personally, I would rather prefer not to be included in the intended audience for his drivel. Meanwhile, his personal vanity project government shutdown is going on its 12th day now.

Re: Spewers of bullshit

Wait! Since you have a religious belief in global warming being a hoax, why do you care in the slightest how he gets around?

Re: Spewers of bullshit

I’m not sure it makes much of a difference what you call it. While he has significant philanthropic efforts underway, I think he would classify his climate change work as political activism.

Only some of the billionaires. Mike Bloomberg, for one, is spending significant amounts of time and money to help the fight against global warming.

Re: gmail sucks

One should also allow for the possibility that one set of emails were indeed full of lies and reasonably classified as spam and the other set actually carrying facts and information relevant to the election. There is a false equivalency at the outset here.

Re: gmail sucks

My spam filter is full of email from various Republican campaign groups, even though I don't live in the USA. I receive no campaign emails from the Democrats. If you don't target your email marketing campaigns properly (e.g don't send US election campaign emails to non-US residents...), your stuff ...

Re: Nouvelles de France

History’s oldest woman a fraud? Russian researchers claim 122-year-old Jeanne Calment was actually a 99-year-old imposter they think her daughter may have pretended to be her to avoid death taxes as an aside, Sarah lived to be 127 (see Genesis) While on the topic of tall tales and fanciful fiction,...

Re: Spewers of bullshit


you're as bad as Jimmy Savile
You once said I was worse than Mr. Hitler. 
how you compare to the president?
Assuming that Breitbart got at least the headline right (big stretch), Chomsky’s view seems pretty reasonable.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

American culture (both South and North) is centred around violence. Fair enough, but you have the very European inquisition, which pretty much wins the violence game. And, in more recent times, Hitler and Stalin and all that. So, with the wrong people in charge, the thin veneer of civilization does...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Nah, you'd never reach the level of chaos, criminality and lawlessness typical for countries like Honduras or El Salvador. And you explain the deplorable states of such countries with what? Genetic inferiority of their populations? Too much nice weather? With "it's a complex issue"? History, cultur...
