I knew a tech writer/recently former teacher who got a 48 hour observation because he didn't like a group of teachers who were involved in some new agey thing (eckists IIRC).

He said that he thought they were manipulative borderline sociopaths. The person to who he said this to reported it as a threat. 48 hour observation.

What?

They took no time at all to warm up. Recall that the Russian government they displaced was not the Czar's. It was the white Russians, a democratic group that had taken charge when the Czar's government fell.

They started by killing, continued killing and only paused killing their own people to go to war.

Lenin was not a good guy. Not as crazy as Stalin, but still a mass murdering bastard.

You yourself give a good analogy. 'Rocks for Jocks' is typically middle school earth science rehashed and taught slower. e.g. These are sedimentary rocks...

That's where science stops for liberal arts students. Science courses completely without math.

Why do you think journalists repeatedly report perpetual motion as straight news? They don't know any better.

What this country needs is a good five dollar plasma weapon.
