You watch the History Channel too?
The the son of a bitch was a lier too? So which was he, a God or a Mortal.
Shows you how stupid the Jap monkeys were. The Emporer should have been
hung in the town square like Mussilini and his mistress were. We should
have vaporized the whole dame iland chain for what they did to our sons and
the Chinese, Manchrians, Koreans, and a whole lot of other people.
BTW Mark, maybe when you grow up you'll learn marxism, communism and
liberalism doesn't work. When you reach the age of majority you're supposed
to take care of yourself and give Mommy and Daddy a break.
A minor problem with your political theory is that the US political
system doesn't work either.
It gets propped up in the US, Australia etc by your mineral resource
wealth, but without that it's crap.
I guess you could be right Greg. When we run out and have to import more
and more, we'll not be able to complete untill our standard of living slides
down to 3rd world levels. Glad Ill be dead by then.
Hey, how about if we just counquer other countries that still have mineral
wealth? Actually, the 500 families already control the whole world, so
what's the use. The only way we can get even is stop breeding and cut off
their labor source,,,,,,,,,,like that's gonna happen :-)
I guess nothing is stable, ever. I do believe that for the short term,
capitalism has provided the highest stand of living so far on Earth.
The flaw in your theory is illustrated by New Zealand - we have almost
no mineral wealth, almost no oil ...
We're forced to survive by producing from our land, basic raw materials
such as meat, grain, wool, and timber. We do that and stand amongst the
first world nations in regard to our standard of living etc. If we
totally embraced "capitalisim" we would have no reason to continue
What's the main fuel used for the electricty grid, coal? It makes sense to
me that a country with little internal fuel sources would be running a high
percentage of nuclear reactors generating electricity, like France.
The "main fuel" is hydro power - something over 50%.
Wind power looks likely to go from 5% to over 25%.
Some really really stupid people advocate nuclear power, but after 60
years no-one has figured out what to do with the nuclear waste and the
irradiated power stations, which will need isolation and ongoing
protection for the next million years. Factor that into the cost and
nuclear power is the most expensive option so far invented.
Around here we have a mix of coal, natural gas, nuclear and wind, but wind's
probably providing less than 1%. Just south of Scranton PA there were 5 or
6 400 foot high wind generators on a mountain ridge (you'd probably call
them foot hills :-). A few weeks ago when we were up that way again there
were 12. There are 5 similar units about 3 miles from Atlantic City.
However, considering the output, the cost of putting them up and the cost of
maintenance, I'm not sure they are a competitive source. I suspect the
politicans decided to put a few up to get the environmentalists off their
back. In California there are many more wind turbines than around here,
and environmentalists who bitched for decades about needing more wind power,
now complain because and occasional bird gets killed by the blades. Go
figure? We have been paying about 0.12 USD per kilowatt hour for quite a
few years, which is about 0.16 NZD. In the U.S. northwest, where
hydroelectic plants are more common, the rate is lower.
There's alway collateral damge in war, but this one has the least, due to
our high tech weapontry and compassion for the Iraqi people.
The difference is, when innocent civilans die by an American bullet or bomb,
it was a mistake the Americans try very hard to avoid.
The Muslim culture is so filled to the brim the hatred.......hate for
everyone not Muslim, hate for other kinds of Muslims, hate for Muslim women
who don't do what they're told, like trained circus dogs............that the
Muslins will murder, will torture, will kill women and childern and babies
and male civilians, up close and personal, with the infliction of the
maximum torture and pain, on purpose.
If the politicians would let the military do their job to the best of their
ability the whole thing would have been over in a few days, with Ole Glory
flying over the capital in
So tell me Mark, where ever you live, why do you hate the U.S. so much?
The great avoidance of responsibility for your actions!
You took war to Iraq - the damage and the slaughter is what you took to
Iraq - you are responsible for it all.
What "compassion"? You destroy their infrastructure, you destroy their
economy, you destroy their homes, you remove all possibility of their
gaining any rights or freedoms, you set up corrupt government. Next
you'll leave Iraq a political vacuum and set them up for a horrific
civil war andprobably genocide - what compassion?
There's no evidence to support that lie.
Who tells you these silly stories? Why are you so stupid as to fall for
Why would you stupidly believe that Iraqis want to be repressed by a
foreign military power?
Nobody hates the USa, that's just propaganda you've been brainwashed
OTOH many people hate what the US does to other nations. That is
entirely different from hating the USa.
(delusional rantings snipped)
Greg, why respond to this thing?
It's a fuckwit troll, or it's mentally defective, but in either case it
doesn't deserve to have it's ravings dignified with a sensible response.
Wayne/dgw, or whatever name the voices told you to post under, do us all
a favour, eh? Put yourself out of your misery. And ours.
Don't be bashful, list all your contributions to society, patents and
what not. Go ahead impress the hell out of us.
Excuse me, I'll be right back. I have to log onto a server in Romania
and verify all of my EBay, PayPal, bank and Social Security information
before they suspend my accounts.
Working the rockie road of the G&PX
I'm waiting to see how far he goes and if he reveals any new prejudices.
I have the uncomfortable feeling that many yanks believe the tripe he's
Perhaps I'm misguided in believing (some) yanks believe this crap, but
they are actively punishing assorted countries (Cuba, Afghanistan, Iraq.
Iran) so some of them believe their propaganda.
Personally, I've got a few hours a day when I'm unfit even for modelling
and Wayne deserves to be punished for that.
