    Not to mention that women buy the majority of disk and internet porn. When all porn dollars, be it for videos, internet, romance novels, women’s magazines, etc., are all tallied, well, to be candid, men could drop entirely out of the porn market and it wouldn’t be harmed much, financially.

    It was more than a little shocking to find that out, but the “industry” itself keeps statistics and knows whom it markets to. If women quit buying it, the porn market would fold in short order.

    And therein lies a problem.

    Since the jury sided with Ventura, has anyone considered that his story might be true?

    Thus far, everyone seems to be assuming that the Seal was innocent.

    What if he wasn’t?

    Annie Oakley sued a great many papers because they printed a false story. Was she a sore loser because she wouldn’t let someone lie about her?

    If so, then something needs to change.

    Samaritans is non-religious entity? Think again.

    Most of the doctors in Doctors Without Borders are Christians.

    There are not many secular orgs that actually try to help people. Goodwill, for example, has had an “oh wonderful us” image for years, and been rocked by scandal after scandal.

    A couple of years ago, I had a hospital infection. The nurse who put in the IV got the brachial artery, instead of a vein. Later, when the IV was removed, it sprayed blood more than 6′, and into the eye of one of the nurses. Fortunately, she didn’t come down with the infection.

    True.
    .
    And it’s also true that for more than 50 years, drugs have been the main thing used in interrogations. Drugs developed decades ago will make the person WANT to tell everything they know, and a number of drugs keeps the person from remembering what they did under the influence.
    .
    Because of that, I’ve suspected the entire “torture” garbage was just a smoke screen to cover how interrogations are done.

    Read James 5. Then make that statement.

    I got my start in restaurants. Back then, labor maxed at 10% of total costs, with overhead, taxes, etc being most of the costs. Today, it’s not uncommon to pay for the entire shift’s wages in five minutes.

    It’s the modern idea of something for nothing. Idiots don’t realize that when they steal from their workers, they are ultimately stealing from themselves.

    Every time the minimum wage has been waged, it resulted in economic growth. Why? Because of greater demand for goods and services. Those outfits hire people to meet the demand. When wages dropped, then less demand and people get laid off.

    An example of the reverse effect is the 1992 tax hike. By 1993, a large chunk of money was taken from the private sector. This had the effect of people buying less, and so the outfits they would buy had to lay people off. Same thing happens when wages drop.

    Take Walmart. Labor costs are typically recouped for the worker’s entire shift in one to two carts.

    But then you get stupidly greedy idiots like one Walmart in the Puget Sound area that deliberately doesn’t hire enough people, and so customers leave, en masse, with their carts filled with hundreds of dollars of merchandise unsold. Then they go to another store that actually has enough cashiers. Ah, but they “saved” $500 in wages for the shift. And didn’t sell perhaps $100,000 of merchandise and groceries.

    As I said, stupidly greedy.

    re: proverbs

    good point.

    I don’t think many realize water expands 11% in volume when it crystallizes.

    re: Nilssson

    you are a proper idiot. There are 1 million arabs in Israel that are citizens and have greater freedoms than any arabs in the nations around them.

    there are more than 200 languages spoken by people who have emigrated to Israel from more than 70 ethnic groups.

    But I thank you in one respect: not everyone knows such facts, and so when a person like you, Nilsson, makes a completely false, perjorative comment, those of us who do know have a reason to teach others those things that you reject because you hate the truth in general.

  • July 29, 2014 at 11:52am

    Nilsson, is there any chance you could take your irrational antisemitism to a different site?

    NW Front is mostly correct. Why is he being denigrated.

    You won’t find many people more pro-Jewish than me. (Part of the family is Messianic Jewish).

    But at the same time, most Jews in the U.S. are far left. There’s no getting around that.

    It makes NO SENSE for a Jew to be a member of a socialist party like the Democrats. Most Democrats Boomer and younger are antisemitic. Just like every other fare left socialist group like the national socialists, the communists, etc.

    Most of the media IS owned by people who are “cultural Jews”, i.e. they are not practicing, they are socialist, never see the inside of a synagogue, have no morals, but still claim to be Jews.

    It is not antisemitic to point out how most U.S. Jews have sold out to the socialists. Call it nazi all you like, but that is name calling just like Hamas and the EU radicals are doing.

    With gold having dropped to almost half it’s value in the last three years, heck with Glenn’s trying to prop gold prices up. It was far, far, far overvalued and is finally going back to what it’s worth. With a 30% drop in the value of the dollar, call that real worth about $400 an ounce.

    The real danger is debt by every major nation. The U.S. hit 100% of GDP this year. Japan ~220%. China ~240%.

    At some point the taxes become too much for the economy to bear and it crashes. Not inflation. Depression and deflation. If no one can buy, then you can’t have inflation.

    No. He’s just a sellout.

  • July 29, 2014 at 11:37am

    Hmmm. I would suggest he has no plans to get re-elected, either. He won’t get re-elected after doing so little to stop the lawbreaking. He could have led. But as time went on, he became a do-nothing. Not what we need in office.

    Plus the 60+ million already here.

    There are 13 million in california alone. 58 counties, so ~22400 per county…

    47 milllion for the other counties, so ~15,100

    Stop being dishonest Will. I thought you learned that lesson years ago.

    I forgot to mention that GenY is less healthy than GenX because of two things:

    1. The first generation to be mostly raised by daycare. This replicated the tenement conditions of the 1890s east coast cities in terms of bacterial and viral infections that kids were exposed to before the age of 6. It’s had some really bad results.
    2. Dope. One of the things ignored by the pothead is what it did to their kids. All sorts of effects on the unborn kids, from extremes like fetal marijuana syndrome, to genetic damage of various kinds. With so many GenX women addicted to pot, it made a massive difference in how healthy their kids were.

    When I took bio modeling, the first thing they did was take us to an 1800s cemetary.

    How long do you think the average was?

    Most lived to the mid 60s.

    The one exception was that people 5 and under usually died, because of childhood diseases. Much ado’s been made about indian epidemics, but epidemics were common among all groups in this world prior to modern medicine.

    Five things improved the lifespan. Antibiotics, smoking being less common now, immunizations, health services actively stopping epidemics, and better nutrition.

    As a biologist, I have to disagree with Coupe.

    The GMO stuff is scary. Test for 6 weeks with healthy volunteers, then put it on the market. When something is changed in a cell, it doesn’t just change that one thing. no technology exists that can transplant a single gene. Its’ a block of DNA that gets taken from one thing and put in another. Typically, there are 30+ failures before anything close to what is desired happens.

    All sorts of problems. The Integrated Pest Management people in the 1990s predicted that GMOs would create resistant pests because of having one pesticide in the food present all the time. This has happened. About 1/’3 of our crops in the U.S. are now lost to pestilence. Adding BT genes has resulted in allergic reactions, deaths of livestock, and resistant lepidopteran strains.

    The Snake River sugar company recently went to GMO sugar beets. Didn’t appear to consider the consequences to customers. I imagine they will go under shortly. Not many people want to buy stuff that can make them sick.

    Overall people are healthier longer. It’s mainly due to smoking disappearing. The life expectancy from 1890 to 1910 dropped from the mid 60s to 41 because of the widespread adoption of industrial cigarettes. By the1950s, half the country smoked. Those that didn’t, tended to live a long time.

    My (p) grandad was born in 1871. His dad served in the Civil War. My other grandad was born in 1911.

    Please. Learn something about the things you comment about, before commenting about it.

    It’s been said that the best way for a fool to not appear foolish is to keep his mouth shut.

    Our family canned for years. My grandma canned all sorts of stuff. Green beans, tomatoes, fruit, jams, jellies. All of it came from the garden she and grandad did.

  • July 28, 2014 at 11:42am

    Given how things work, I’d guess than the unions complained to the state, and then the state stole the food to protect the unions. I don’t have much faith in state agencies today with so much corruption going on.

    Last year, for example, an illegal alien got his s–t on strawberries in Oregon. E Coli sicked many. The state tried to blame deer, which was nonsense. They lied to protect the illegals and it killed a lot of the remnant respect people had for the state’s ag stuff.
