No problem Jesus hasn't been seen by a single soul in the last 2000 years inspite of Hitler and tons of scoundrels before and after him creating all kinds of murder and mayhem. I doubt he's suddenly gonna show up on my account.
That largely has to do with the fact that Jesus was nothing more than a mortal David koresh without the guns. The Romans were his Janet Reno.
Btw, keep an eye on Joel Olsten. Don't be surprised if one day he goes all Jim Jones after it's discovered he's been flocking his flock. 😃
As general.miltz always says from his religious teachings, never pass up a particularly attractive sheep.
You're right. It's unfortunate, although I know a few blacks that have gotten rich off affirmative action in government contracting, they generally don't pool (and aren't encouraged by their role models to pool) their resources to start businesses (other than illegal drug pedaling) in general as a way to better themselves rather than asking whitey to give them handouts. Hispanics form little construction companies. There are chinese dry cleaners, buffets, etc...out the ying yang. But then black leadership can't maintain their power and riches off the masses of blacks if it doesn't keep them enslaved in poverty.
And while discussing monetary systems and the impact deficit welfare spending has on currencies (fiat or otherwise) is entertaining, it quickly flies over the heads of many and it's just you, jd, me,... and one or two others discussing it.
I was just hypothesizing perhaps as opposed to debating it theoretically, maybe discussing how we could pool our knowledge, ideas, experiences,... conquer the beast and profit off the reality of the tardian destruction of the currency.
That is, identify and get ahead of the next bull cycle whether it's the 4th qtr stock bull market, short currency(s), long real estate etf's, long credit default swaps,.. Maybe develop a website...call it "PhaseBook"..or "Cbay"...and go public with it,...... dunno.
"What dooms your argument is the fact that we know where the increased CO2 comes from - fossil fuel consumption."
I assume you're commenting on some long ago post about the causes of "global warming" or as you tards call it when the former isn't happening "global climate change"
What dooms your argument is the fact; that we exhale CO2, plants absorb in fact need CO2 to survive, rotting organic matter gives off CO2, moisture in the air is 8 times the green house gas CO2 is, moisture makes up about 5% of the components of air while CO2 makes up about 0.03% of it (should we create moisture tax credits & restrict the use of moisture? That'd be a little difficult since a majority of the earth's surface is covered by water) and finally the old post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.
Just because there's A and B, doesn't mean A caused B.
If you tards would look at a science book rather than swallowing whatever talking points the tard leadership says you should, you might understand a little known science called psychrometrics. Generally it is the relationship of gas and vapor mixtures used predominately for air and vapor mixtures in the design HVAC systems.
It is a proven fact that the amount of moisture air can hold is directly proportional to air temperature. At a certain temperature, air can only hold a certain amount of moisture. If any more moisture is available it will not absorb it. When air at a certain temperature is holding its maximum moisture at that temperature, it is at 100% relative humidity. If the temperature is dropped, it starts to rain.
Now if the amount of one green house gas is a function of air temperature, it is likely another may be as well. That is because air temperatures are warmer now than during the last ice age (although not warmer than a decade ago), it has the capacity to hold more CO2.
This is supported by the fact that even though there may be more CO2 now, although still minutial amounts, the temperature is not proportionately higher.
No. There is no after life. There's just nothing, just like there was no "before life" for the 14 billion years (or is it 6000 years to you bible thumping creationists?) before you were born.
Enjoy it while you can.
You believe in a devil dressed as jesus???
You religious wackos believe in some weird sheet. A devil dressed as jesus, a bible with no knowledge of the physical universe, no wonder you people scare the hades out of people in the center and we get these far left nutcases elected to office to feck up the country.
This reminds me...
I mistakenly went to a religious play one night at an amphitheater located within miles of fossilized dinosaur tracks I was exploring one time because the headline claimed it would reconcile the existence of dinosaurs and their not being mentioned in the bible.
There was no reconciliation or even a mention of dinosaurs in the play, so it was deceptive from the start as all religions are, but the funniest thing was every time the character playing the devil (yes what religious play "explaining the evolution of dinosaurs" is complete without a devil) came on stage, the whole crowd hissed and booed at it.
I couldn't believe it. I was surrounded by a bunch of child minded science snubbing mental patients. Scary sheet. Like being surrounded by zombies if they also weren't fiction.
"Since when does a Cross look like a T"
Since when doesn't a cross look like a T?
Here's a test. Assuming it comes out right, is the following a letter of the alphabet or a cross? (Ignore the dots as well as the voices in your head.)
"YOU never know when to let something die."
How ironic, on one hand, coming from someone who believes in a religion that won't let jesus die. How ignorant, on the other hand, when you're the one that posted something about a cross at the WTC. Sounds like you're uncomfortable with your faith, when you won't let the subject of your faith be resurrected when the messiah of it supposedly was, but let's move on,...
So you don't worship a cross, you just treat it as a sacred symbol of faith?
If a cross is a sacred symbol of faith and a cross looks like a "T", then a "T" is the prefect symbol of faith. A "T" at least can be used to form words.
What can you do with a cross?
Except be used by you and your ilk to burn in some poor black family''s yard or crucify menaces to society on?
Tell jesus I said if there was an omnipotent god and he was the son of him, he wouldn't act, be as ignorant about the universe or let the Romans crucify him like every other bum of society back then,... at the very least.
I'm sure if there was a god and he was the son of him, he'd have a cool wardrobe, one of those wheeless skate boards like they had in Back to the Future or a flying car like on the Jetsons and rather than let the Romans have their way with the christians, feed them to lions and so forth, he could have just nodded his head like on I Dream of Jeanie, zapped the Romans into oblivion and provided a liveable minimum wage to all supporters like the current false messiah. That would make true believers out of anyone.
On second thought, just tell jesus I said to shut the feck up. He's a waste of time.
"Anyone who would worship the letter " T " as you do, is no doubt a little light upstairs as well as delusional."
Bingo!!! As is anyone who worships a cross and says things like "hate the sin, love the sinner", "god works in mysterious ways" and last but not least "god helps those who help themselves", you closet atheist you.
A non-delusional person would hate the sin AND the sinner both. Feck the sinner, when there are plenty of people who might need help who haven't sinned.
If you only get a rewarded if you help yourself, why give god credit for it?
And why would god give a rat's axe about a professional athlete doing well during a sporting event, when there are all kinds of inhumane acts he should be spending his impotent time on?
Perhaps he likes to sip a few suds and watch a good game on Saturday and Sunday after mowing the clouds like everyone else?
claiming the cross shape has proven since 0000.1 AD to have magical healing powers and should only be used for holy worship like the mythological gods the Greeks worshiped up to december 25th - 0000 BC when man started the development of this new mythological character.... (which has been so successful in rooting out evil and human injustices,... like; Hitler before he could put into place his plans for the holocaust, murder, cancer and abortion of 100% innocent babies while murderers live comfortable long lives. Because the christian mantra is the mental contortion causing "hate the sin, but love the sinner". (HUH!!!)
And this is because since no one has seen, let alone met, this new guy of the new testament since 0000.1AD, you CAN see a cross and a "T" every day. It's no coincidence that it too works in mysterious ways to cover it's impotence to the religion.
And since they all have the same power, no more or less than the letter "T", we should worship the letter "T" as if it were god itself.
In the name of the father of the "T", the son, THE "T" itself and the holy ghost of the "T", amen, Mr. T.
This Sesame Street lesson has been brought to you by the letter "T".
The value of the work doesn't change because you're on a silver standard. If the currency was redeemable in silver and $5.15 = $77.83, the minimum wage would be about $0.34/hr.
Regardless, it seems to me debating whether a fiat currency is any worse than a gold standard (which is just a glorified fiat currency with a piece of metal with an arbitrary value placed on it as a base) rather than finding a way to amass as much money as you can no matter what the currency is, is akin to debating what the color of monopoly money should be rather than concentrating on winning the game. The play money is just a way to keep score. Rather than having green, blue, orange, etc pieces of paper or metal, the monetary exchanges could just as well be kept track of on a spreadsheet.
When early man, fresh with the ability to start a fire (just before the invention of the wheel) to grill a steak, found himself surrounded by wooly mammoths that no one man could kill alone, he didn't succeed in enjoying bar b que wooly mammoth steaks by debating what color the spears should be or whether to marinate the meat or not first,.... they pooled their knowledge, ideas, experiences, labor and worked as a team to conquer the beast so they all could succeed.
Ya know, like Ocean's Eleven,... to throw one more metaphor into the mix.
"I am not against any one making a bunch of money."
There's nothing wrong with earning a bunch of money.
The amount of money you earn is a function of (among other things like contribution to company earnings) a supply of the number of people who can do what you do to earn it (and of course the number of people who want the services you have to offer, but set that part of the equation aside).
a monkey or even a bonobo could flip a burger. a bonobo could put a windshield or an engine in a car on a union worker's assembly line.
The number of people who can design a safe, efficient bonobo resistant burger cooker or a vehicle with mass market appeal is small in comparison. Therefore the latter make more money than the former. As they should.
Artificially raising the wages on services with large supply and a disproportionately small demand will disrupt the wage/cost of living scale. That's not the market. That's a tax. It's the same as welfare.
Everyone should be allowed to earn as much as the market is willing to pay. And everyone should be allowed to earn as little as the market will pay.
And they should be taught that when they're in school screwing around not getting an education.
I heard this morning on a talk show that Norwegian mcdonalds pay their burger flippers about $20/hr.
The big mac is also goes for about $20 there.
Which makes my earlier point. If you artificially raise wages, the cost of living will go up proportionately for no net gain.
I think the blue states should have the right to vote to formally join Russia. They've already joined them in ideological effigy.
If it were a true democratic decision, but if I understand it correctly, the voters of crimea have a gun to their head. They have the freedom to vote, but it's to join Russia or join the democratic republic of earth worms.
general.miltz or general.gaymiltz,... whoever you are, the 1980's called, they want their "funny as a wet fart" and "don't give up your day job" cliches back.
