Flat Earth Debate / Re: Disproof: Clouds lit from below at sunset.
« on: September 14, 2017, 01:19:15 PM »
Never from below though Tom. You are intentionally ignoring that inevitable conclusion. Clouds are never at the altitude FET needs the sun to be at. They are always lower, yet we see them lit from below only at tims when the sun is setting. To be expected with a spheroid Earth rotating on it's axis. Impossible under your conception of the world.

Workplace competitiveness has made higher education, especially post-undergrad work, whether a graduate degree of a diploma or certificate augmentation to your degree very important to differentiate you from other candidates. In Canada, 53% of working age people have undergraduate degrees, so by virtue of the volume of degrees out there, they become a less certain indicator of ability or achievement.  If you are competing against that pool with only a high school education, you will have to be exceptional in other areas to stand out. It can happen, especially in areas like sales, but it is becoming more and more frequent to find candidates who not only have the social skills and mindset for a job, but also have higher education and often post undergraduate work to go with it.

Just wanted to elaborate on dogma. Dogma isn't something that is believed even after it has been proven false. Dogma is something whose belief in it does not rely on it being true or false.

If any one is close to an expert on vapor trails or contrails, I am. We all watched the movie "Topgun". Well I lived right on top of the nations topgun marine base "Fightertown USA", protecting the west coast of the US. I saw more hotshots and vapor trails than 99% of you. I know the difference.

Oh good.  A self-proclaimed expert.

Talking about HRC in 2017

Give it up man.  She lost and no one cares anymore but you.

Also I feel it necessary to point out that your rhetoric is ignoring the point you were arguing against, which is that keeping the Dreamers will result in more money going to the government in the form of taxes. So there's that. This is why I don't usually bother with you.

Your argument of "b-b-but illegals pay taxes" is in error.

No it isn't, you actually go on to agree with that statement.

Quote
  The  Congressional Budget Office states "the tax revenues that unauthorized immigrants generate for state and local governments do not offset the total cost of services provided to those immigrants."

See: https://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/110th-congress-2007-2008/reports/12-6-immigration.pdf

The same quote goes on to say that their impact is "most likely modest".  It also does nothing to say if the offset by immigrants vary substantially from those of citizens.  It could very well be that they do not add any more incremental burden than a citizen.  That aside, that is not even really the argument being made.  The argument being made is that not deporting these people costs incrementally less than deporting them.

The US elected democratic representatives, they didn't vote on this issue as a whole. You should stop the political platitudes and maybe make an actual cohesive argument.

The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt

An amazing story crafted by a wonderful writer I had never encountered before. She has an amazing talent of transporting people in to the scene's she creates and it gives the narrative an intense momentum and impact. Couple that with her willingness to explore extreme circumstances and you have a story that is very moving.

Oh no, you don't think cloud seeding is the same as the chemtrail conspiracy, do you?

He is neither at his podium nor being invaded by HRC in that photo. I know you kill the Hil and pump the Trump, but your narrative don't make no sense brah.

Trump is only a few inches away from his podium. She walked across the room to stand there in front of him as she talked, and then proceeded to complain about his creepy and stalking behavior.

I didn't say she was right, I said you were wrong.  She is not "invading his space" unless you take an extremely liberal sense of the term that only considers Trump's feelings.  I think, like many people here, that way too much is being made of the incident.  Trump looks creepy, because he has a serious resting bitch face, and it looks like he is looming because of their positions relative to the camera coupled with human's not being great at judging depth.  Perhaps he wanted HRC to feel his presence at her back, but that is not a sexual power game, it is just a power game, it is the literal definition of upstaging, and faulting him for that would be idiotic in my opinion.

She crossed over to the other side of the stage. ::) The whole thing was stupid anyway. It was just a meme based more than anything on the fact that certain camera angles made Trump's positioning look comedically sinister at times. Neither he nor Hillary could have known how it would look on camera until the debate was over. I'm sure he got too close to her at times, but the media wouldn't have made it into such a big issue without the silly pictures people were posting the next morning.

Yea, and this memoir excerpt only amplifies all the criticism of her in my opinion.

'My skin crawled': Hillary Clinton recalls dealing with 'creep' Trump

Poor Hillary, she was so close to accomplishing her goals, but then an ugly creepy man stood close to her and it all went to shit :(

Funny she says that since he was just standing at his podium and she was the one who walked over and invaded his space.

Incorrect.

The fewer creeps there are whispering poison in his ears the less likely he is to do any lasting harm. Let's remember that Trump doesnt have an ideology.

Gotta say I'm relieved Bannon is gone. Anyone wanting to get more Hawks in the East Asian command is not thinking real clear, imo.

Yes, AFTER they assumed absolute power.  I mean before.  When the process of government was actually working.  How did they get enough seats in their senate to GET absolute power?

Some brief history here:



Enough to research more if you want to.
