Comment Re:enough with the statistics (Score 0) 286

Well, what I think is very scientific about it is every time a statistical claim on cancer 'remedy' is announced, there is no subsequent analysis of the case. But I suppose due to the definition of 'statistics', they aren't treated as badly as those in homeopathy.

For everything in the universe, there is a balance.
Do countries really exist? If not what does patriotism mean? If yes is it unhypocritical to promote world peace?
When the rich are rich, at what point is that a privilege? and at what point not?
Greed triumphs over ideal, ideal triumphs over selfishness, selfishness triumphs over pragmatism, pragmatism triumphs over greed.
In the end, balance will be kept. Either nobody wins, or everyone loses.
Thus, identify your suffering, stop blaming others.
So go ahead, it's not only ethical to set up offshore business, it will be unethical not to. So some people will learn from hardship, the sweet labor of life.

A wise man once said:" remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise he bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony."

I'm beginning to think this whole homeland security fad is just a way for those supposedly responsible trying to blame the historical faults on others such as the lowly security guards and the old speechless security system. Thus, seemingly making themselves innocent, while everyone else either suffers or become more obtuse:

Directors: Terrorists? Then go do more searches, buy more scanners, get more guards. Not our faults, don't look at us. More problems, then do more of the above and everyone must wear a tracking device at all times, more problems, sure we'll come up with something, but don't ever blame on us.
