How many weapons and soliders does China and Russia have in the US?
Alot less than the number who stormed the capital on January 6.
Stormed the capital?[sic] These extremely dangerous looking people who have calmly stopped to have their photos taken by the assembled press who a) knew they would be there and b) felt in absolutely no mortal danger whatsoever? You think is gaggle have more weapons and soldiers than China?



I think you've been watching too much CNN again.

No need to quote my post to talk about how smart you are.

Anyway, to people interested in discussing, it seems like Biden and the establishment Dems are interested in ratcheting up funding and legislation to increase already disastrous power wielded by the FBI and CIA, using Jan 6th as the political smokescreen.

Unfortunately MSNBC and CNN won’t cover it and Fox News will cover it badly and no one will realize that their government is amping up the surveillance state.
Forget China and Russia. The US government sees its own citizens as the real enemy. It watches them far more closely than any would be geopolitical rival.

Hey America, would it be possible to start speaking out against the drive for extreme domestic counter-terrorism powers now instead of waiting until it’s too late?

Sincerely,

Your concerned neighbor. (Canada)

OMG, if there was ever anyone who needed to get their political house in order before worrying about others, its Canada.

Does your numbers take into account that, as president, he has the best healthcare money can buy?
Or is this based on the average American, who (just fyi) does not have the best medical care or even very good medical care.
Between you and me Dave, I think Biden died sometime last year on the campaign trail and what you are seeing on TV, is his reanimated corpse. I don't want to start a conspiracy theory, but I'm sure I read something about 'Project Weekend at Bernie's".

I thought I'd calculate the odds of Joe Biden dying in office. Below are the actuarial tables so you can see my sources.
https://www.ssa.gov/oact/STATS/table4c6.html

Joe is 78 years old. He has a 4.78% chance of dying this year.

Out of 100,000, people only 56,065 would be left to make the ripe old age of 78.
4 years later 44,553 will be left to celebrate their 82nd birthday.

56,056 - 44,553 = 11503
100 / (56056 / 11503) = 20.5% chance of death in those 4 years. Joe didn't have his birthday on the day he was inaugurated so his chances are a fraction more.

I honestly thought his odds of dying would be a lot higher.  :-\


Edit: Joe has dementia.
Quote from: https://www.liftedcare.com/what-is-the-life-expectancy-for-someone-with-dementia/
General life expectancy for someone with Alzheimer’s is around 8-12 years.
After diagnosis, the average lifespan of someone with dementia with Lewy bodies was found in one study to be around 5-7 years after onset.
The average life span for someone with frontotemporal dementia (sometimes called Pick’s disease) is around eight years.

So its about 50-50. Ok, I feel better about this now.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Warning!
« on: June 18, 2021, 08:25:12 AM »
I dislike the cowardly nature of the warnings. Who gave you the warning? Why is it anonymous? Why does no one stand up and take ownership for their actions?

If you have great power, you should also be charged with accountability.

As i responded in my pm, I think it is the best approach to simply share your questions here and let all who wish to answer them do so at their own leisure! 

I'm going to assume that a Professor will regard an interview as a source material ... and idly taking opinions on a forum as cocking about.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Ronaldo snubs Coke

For those who aren't European.

Watch the first 20 seconds of this video below.



Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the biggest sporting star in Europe. And with that little act ...

Quote from: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/christiano-ronaldo-coca-cola-value-b1866890.html
Coca-Cola’s share price dipped by $4bn (£2.8bn) after Cristiano Ronaldo removed two bottles of the carbonated drink in front of him at a press conference and encouraged people to drink water.

They should have paid him $400m and asked him to take a slurp.  :o


Amusingly

On Tuesday, France midfielder Paul Pogba removed a bottle of Heineken beer that had been placed in front of him at a Euro 2020 news conference.

Heineken's share price finished 1.39% up on the day.  🤣

British trade and the G7 I am interested in. Northern Ireland ... don't care. You changed the subject. You made the thread interesting again.

Well ... controversial but I have no idea what Trudeau is doing there either. Surely China get a seat at the table before a pisspot province in the Arctic circle? You want to tackle climate change ... why bother with Canada? Surely you bring in China ... oh, and India for that matter. On that note, Draghi should probably pack up his shit and go home too.

And no, the EU should not have representation ... or if it does, you don't give Germany, France and Italy representation as they are already being represented by the EU. The French shouldn't have 2 seats at the same table for example. EU or France ... not both.

Ok, should Corsica be banned from selling sausages to Paris? That's the same thing. It is every bit as stupid and if Macron thinks the UK will just spilt up because he won't agree a trade deal he's in for a shock. It was unbelievably clumsy of him ... if not outright ignorant.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/1449330/emmanuel-macron-brexit-news-latest-g7-summit-northern-ireland-protocol

Also ... question ... the G7.

1. Boris Johnson
2. Macron
3. Merkel
4. Trudeau
5. Biden
6. Mario Draghi
7. Suga Yoshihide

What is Ursula Von Der Leyen doing there? The EU is not part of the G7. Fuck off home you meddling cunt.  >o<

Either the EU is part of the G7 in which case send Macron, Merkel and Draghi home, or the EU is not part of the G7 and Von Der Leyen is not welcome. The French, Germans and Italians should not have their handler there putting pressure on issues using the leverage of nations who are NOT part of the G7. The EU is full of complete wankers.

Stop picking the wrong side. The French have demonstrated how absurd the EUs position is and how unreasonable their demands. Boris asked

"Do you think it would be reasonable to ask that sausages made in Toulouse could not be sold in Paris?" to which Macron replied "Its not the same thing. Northern Ireland is not part of the UK."

Of course, it is part of the UK. Failure to understand such basics is why it is impossible to have a reasonable deal with these idiots.

I have a new conspiracy theory.

Coronavirus became a pandemic because of gain of function research that escaped from a lab. However ... we keep seeing new variants emerge, each more contagious than the last. Convenient that the improvement about all these new variants seems to be its contagiousness.

I think these new variants are man-made and the US and its Chinese partner are continuing the development of their bio-weapons and unleashing them on the public to gain more data. Under the guise of 'natural mutations' they release new improved variants in different parts of the world to cover their tracks and then monitor the effects. They know they will never get an opportunity like this ever again, to experiment on the public like this.

You heard it at tfes.org first.

I don't like Russell Brand. In fact, I'd go so far as to say I loathe the bastard and his liberal politics. But, just because most of what he says is shit, doesn't mean he is consistently always wrong.

His view on why the West refused to believe that the virus came from a Chinese lab a few miles from the source of the outbreak and instead told everyone it came from a bat several thousand miles away.



The tl;dr ... the West has a narrative that science will always provide the solutions. An inexorable drive for progress spurred on by corporate profits. But what if science was increasingly becoming the source of all our problems? What if science didn't provide the solutions to the pandemic, but instead increasingly caused them? Can pharma companies rely on government grants and handouts from a supportive tax base when those funds are used to hurt that self same set of tax payers?

I think this "science solves everything and answers all our prayers" narrative is particularly prevalent on these forums. The blind faith placed in these institutions by patrons of this site never ceases to amaze.
