Have you ever seen a recipe for bean soup in the US? half pound of bacon, ham, or smoke jowl, boil the shit out of it, put 2 pounds of soaked navy beans in and boil until tender adding salt and butter to taste at the end. The good tasting recipes will have at least an inch of lard coagulating on the top when the left overs are put into the fridge. But if that didn't sound bad enough, it's usually eaten with fried potatoes and buttered corn bread. (god I'm getting hungry..lol)

as for rice, the only rice dishes I am familiar with that have any flavor are drenched with something else like General Tso's chicken or sausage of some sorts with peppers, onions, and mushrooms sauteed in butter first..

Again, poor food choices. But yes, in theory, I would agree with you. I just don't seem to think it would happen in practice often. Americans like flavor.

Poverty does not cause obesity. It causes unhealthy diets which can cause obesity. Stay home and eat a 7 dollar lean steak or a 12 dollar healthy omega3 rich fish fillet with about 4 dollars in trimmings or get filled up with a 6 dollar super sized big mac meal and not have to fix the crap. Fill up between meals by snacking on 6 dollar nuts or have a 3 for a dollar twinky. These are choices not limited to the poor. But the better off have a more easy time not making them.

There are even some people who think the problem with obesity is solely contained within our switch from real sugar to high fructose corn syrup in the 1970s. They make convincing arguments if the arguments are factual. I have never had the time to bother checking them. A lot of obese people get thin also when they go gluten free. I think it has a lot to do with food containing gluten also having HFCS in them but that's just a guess.

I also wouldn't say Reagan or Thatcher's economic policies were disastrous. In the US, Carter's policies likely were worse. They certainly threw a lot more people into poverty than when Reagan was president. But I'm sure you will spout some half cocked theories that don't line up with reality so I'm not bothering with it. I do agree that illegals will increase the obesity rates, but not because of poverty- because they will make the same poor food choices and be subjected to the mass marketing that many Americans already are.

So all those democrats claiming there is a war on women and that hobby lobby means employers are trying to tell women what they can and cannot do in thier personal life are terrorists?

Opinions and even lies are not terrorism. It can be fraud, deciet, snd a number of other things but not terrorism.

After looking at the two replies i have seen so far, i'm not sure some people even know what terrorism is. Participating in a legal political proccess cannot be terrorism.

Stating political or economic opinion cannot be terrorism even when someone legally acts on that opinion. Free speech includes harmful speech and legal acts surounding that speech.

You hsve not listed any examples of terrorism. Ylu listed some stulid experiments we have tried snd hou even managed to invent some scenarios, but none of it could be considered terrofismm.

Plausible deniability..

However, some comments made by politicians make s 60 IQ seem like a mensa candidate. I mean we have that guy from texas who thought the term black hole was a sexist and racial derogotory term. Snd there was that senator who feared an island would flip over. Of coursd nanci pelosi gives us s few good ones too.

Here is a silly question of sorts.

what is in the process of making this, you used some patented off the shelf part and perhaps created something else as a part inside it that seems to be covered by a patent.

I'm assuming that as long as you don't sell it, the off the shelf part is covered (maybe even if you did sell it) but the other patent, would it require royalties or whatever just for this proof of concept device because it won a prize? Of course I could be wrong on it all, I don't really know the answer.

So if i did some convoluted bad thing that made you look like a duck, you would be fine taking the blame?

The entire purpose of a false flag operation is to place obvious blame on someone else. We are dealing with masters of deciet here. Ukraine used to be part of the USSR and people around then are around today too.

Do you know that the separatist taking credit are both A: separatists and B: the ones who shot it down? For all we know they cljld be plants for disinformation. But even if they are the real deal, nnothing has linked them to being the ones who shot the missiles. For all we know, they could be cheer leading something someone else said who could have been a Ukrainian plant. Their bragging about it is not evidence of anything other than they bragged. I mean hell, plenty of people popped the cork and started celebrating in 2000 when the networks called Florida for Gore. That was all over something that wasn't true.

As for them having a missile system. That doesn't prove anything other than they had the capability to do it. Lots of parties in the area have that capability including ukraine.

Your evidence doesn't amount to any logic or factual error when someone questions it. It doesn't amount to proof either. But for what its worth, i think the rebels did it too. I'm just not willing to dismiss other possabilities based on what we are being told. You shouldn' either.

A friend was buying baby stuff for another friend. Somehow this ended up. With a rumor that he got his wife pregnant. When it got back to me, another friend asked if i though he was happy about it. I said he is probably mad as hell because he was fixed 20 years ago after his second kid. Good news traveled faster than the real news- it was for someone else.

So perhaps Ukraine security services planted the story that the rebels shot down a military plane, they went to bragging between themselves, and there is every piece of evidence you brought up.

Or it was a false flag operation by senior ukranian military designed to outrage EU countries to impose the sanction against Russia that they rejected the previous day due to fears of wreckibg their own economy.

There is no logic error, Ukraine could have expected to benefit from the start. Having Russia abandon the rebels would be a huge victory for them. Its not the first time something like this has happened either.
