Heck, pretty much anything from November 1918 could be considered WW2... Pre WW2 during the Versailles treaty, 1918, through 1939. The stock market crash in 1929, global depression allowed the Lenin/Marxist movement in Russia, Spain had its civil war, Hitler comes to power, violates the treaty (oh gee, just like everyone violating the UN), and before you know it, the entire world blows up. Kind of like what is happening now. I'd say we are at the 1925-1929 period. Once the stock market blows up again, depression sets in, you'll see those wanting power to take over, you'll have another global war. This next global conflict, I doubt mankind will survive, in any strength. Heck, it might even make it more like the Star Trek TOS episode "The Omega Glory".

"A similar approach could one day spur the development of long-term birth control options for humans." Oh, wouldn't Margaret Sanger have loved this when she started that abortion milling organization. She could have single handed wiped out the black population, as she wanted, in a couple generations. On blacks, immigrants and indigents: "...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people On sterilization & racial purification: Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech. On the right of married couples to bear children: Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace." Birth Control Review, April 1932 On the purpose of birth control: The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2) On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities: "More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control."

The reason the wildlife have come back is because the SOCIALIST COMMUNIST don't live in that area. Biggest polluters in the world. Yes, the USA has polluted, but at least we clean it up. You look at a lot of the photos coming out of the post Soviet Union...terrible. Just look at Aral sea...99% gone. Don't give me this anti human crap. Don't believe it one bit!

Comment Proves my point about tobacco (Score 1) 175

Smoking doesn't "cause" cancer, unless you are genetically predisposed for cancer. My grandfather, born in the late 1800's, started smoking unfiltered cigarettes, as an 18 year old draftee in WW1. He smoked unfiltered cigarettes until the 1970's. He quit cold turkey, because, and I quote "I'm not paying no d*mn 75 cents for a pack of d*mn cigrettes". (I could just imagine what he would say now. He lived until he was 99 years, 3 months old. He even had a pacemaker at age 85. When the doc was telling my parents, his caregivers, about what to do/not do, one of the things was to transmit the data via a phone link once a week or something, to monitor the condition of the battery. My grandfather heard battery, and asked the doc how you change the battery. Doc told him that at his age, he shouldn't worry about wearing the battery out. Grandfather didn't miss a beat....Doc, I've already outlived THREE doctors. My parents smoked from the early 1950's, until the mid 70's when their children just flat got tired of the stink. Both in their 80's with no cancer. I think the whole tobacco as the "bad guy" is overblown. Yes, smoking isn't the best thing to put in your LUNGS, considering all the chemicals, but, to say smoking causes cancer, is not really true either, if you have a genetic predisposition for cancer. Considering how much the government gets via a tobacco tax, you'd think they would just love it if EVERYONE smoked tobacco products.

The EPA, nutjobs, man made global warming idiots, earth first, tree huggers would LOVE for this to cause automobile prices to go through the roof. Their goal, is to completely eliminate the internal combustion engine. They want auto to go away so we can be more like bicycle China... Well, of course the "right" people will be allowed to continue as nothing happened, politicians, hollyWEIRD, etc...

Comment Republicans vs Democrats (Score 1) 142

Hell, what's the difference? They both have a goal of destroying freedom, liberty. Flood the country with illegal aliens that benefit both parties. Democrats get em here for votes and free stuff, Republicans want em here to destroy the labor force, reduce labor cost for the cheap labor. In the end, we stopped having a representative republic over a century ago (17th amendment). It's just taken a while to completely destroy it. It's more of a post constitution "politburo" now. About the only thing left would be removing the 22nd amendment and allowing someone to be elected for life.

99% of the crap on the big screen today isn't worth the money. Take a husband, wife, and the typical 2 children. Gas to and back, tickets, minimum 10 bucks each (unless you go to the early show) Say 7-8 bucks for the kids minimum. Popcorn, drinks, snacks (unless you cheat and bring your own 40-50 bucks. You are looking at anywhere between 80-120 bucks easy. Once a movie is released, wait a few weeks, download a REAL image of the movie not that "filmed in a theater" crap, or, just wait a month or two for it to show up on netflix as a legit source, watch it for 10 bucks, make your own snacks. No hassle.

You want to see what happens if you guarantee "free income" to citizens? Just look at ANY ghetto in the USA, any "project" housing. THAT is the result of over 50 years of "welfare". I suppose you would prefer NO ONE work? Unless you give people a reason to get off their lazy ass and do something productive, the entire country will look like "project" houses in a few years. (mostly) blacks, have become nothing more than slaves to the United States government. Politicians, have turned them, into a guaranteed block of voters, who will almost always vote democratic, otherwise, they would have to get up off their butts, and WORK for a LIVING. Call me racist, call me this or that, I don't care, but YOU KNOW IT IS THE TRUTH!

Nothing on my phone, other than photos, email addresses, bookmarks. No bank info, no home addresses. Phone is never left unattended, always on my belt clip. I've never lost a phone, had one stolen. Never used a password. Swipe to unlock. I don't leave my phone in the car, at the beach, bar, etc. I look at it as if I would my wallet. I've never lost it, had it stolen in over 40 years of carrying one since I got my drivers license in the 70's. If people were more RESPONSIBLE, it wouldn't be an issue.

Probably should have taken the batteries out. Also, as stupid as people are, given the world climate today, it sounds FOOLISH to be walking around with a bunch of wires, circuit board, display inside any building. I'm sure if he were black, white, hispanic, yellow, would have gotten about the same reaction. But, you must remember, it's not "profiling" as far as I'm concerned. The predominate race that is cutting off heads, burning people alive, blowing up themselves are people from the middle east. If 99 year old grandmothers in wheelchairs were doing that, people would be afraid of 99 year old grandmothers in wheelchairs. But, in this politically correct world, you can bet the school system will be sued, AND WIN.
