    You saw my other thread, as the court overruled the attempt to fuse Zionism and Judaism.

    An employment tribunal.

    I've already said that I don't think being anti-zionist is the same as being anti-semitic. Why would I?

    I am not going through all your posts. Just say you are happy with the court's ruling and I will believe you.

    So you just enjoy throwing out baseless accusations? Paint me unsurprised.

    And I've never thought being anti-zionist was the same as being anti-semitic. Your idiotic conspiracies, and the tone of much of your posts, though, are a different matter. Remember, for example, that article you happily linked to with those blatantly anti-semitic images in it...

    And what has this got to do with the constant crap you post about Sandy Hook, Boston, 9/11....?

    Oh, and whilst you are at it, feel free to post up the links to where I have supported zionism. I'll be waiting.

    You are a globalist. You believe in the British Empire. That was influenced by multiracial Zionism many years ago. And it still is. Tell my you are happy that the court ruled that Zionism of today is not Abrahamic Judaism and I will throw flower petals at your feet.

    I do? That's news to me. Post up the links where I've expressed my support for the British empire (seriously?!?). I'm still waiting for the zionism links.

    Vincente, did you know that one parent was an assistant to a woman who was a major fundraiser for the Democratic Party? And that woman has direct ties to Mayor Bloomberg, king of gun control and the one who wanted to tell people how much soda they could drink?

    OMG. A member of the human race knows another member of the human race. It's a conspiracy I tells you. A giant, frothing, zionist plot to take away guns so that 'they' are free to do things that you never mention but that couldn't possibly be done because too many red necks are still armed with some guns, and all this despite the fact you seem to think said nebulous zionist cabal is already free to do as it wishes.

    I fail to see the relevance of that to my post.

    You don't see the relevance? Your posting talked about opportunities. While they may not exist in England, they DO exist in the USA. Again, it's a matter of going where the opportunities are. Don't sit and wait with your hand out expecting that housing, food, healthcare, etc will be provided. No, go where the jobs are, anyone can do it but it's easier when you are young.

    The UK's unemployment rate is 6.9%. In the US, it's 7.3%. Every developed country has opportunities and every developed country has poverty. Have you checked your poverty rate recently? Opportunities are easier for some to access than for others. The post was about taking care of those that needed help, and that this wasn't tantamount to putting people on easy street. Like I said, your post bore little relevance to what I was referring to.

    When I lived in England, they had a coal miner strike. They made peanuts.

    The ARAB oil embargo was on, so they prepared for gasoline rationing, just like WWII. I saw old timers go to sell their cars at a car auction. Gasoline was very expensive so nobody drove around places and lots of people never owned a car.

    I presume you're talking about the strike in the early 70s. Things have changed rather a lot (everywhere) since then.

    That does seem to provide a mystery after nearly 70 years of a very generous welfare state which includes healthcare, that so many people still feel needy. The "poor kid" referenced in the article and for whom the author felt such pity had probably been a recipient of public benevolence his entire life, as well as his more than likely never-married mother, so why is he still poor? Could it be the principle of always more, never enough? Maybe there is a clue in the "safety net" itself. It should provide a harbinger and adumbration for the way our country seems to be drifting.

    Public benevolence? That's an interesting turn of phrase. A little over $80 a week for a 16-24 year-old in income support does not a life of luxury make. And if he's poor, it might well be because opportunities are difficult to come by for many of the young in society these days, especially for those who haven't had the benefits of say a stable and reasonably well off family background.
    And I don't think it's a harbinger for the way your country is drifting. Your country could do with a bit more benevolence (as you put it) towards those less fortunate from what I've seen. Images like this strike us Europeans as pretty shocking for such a rich country:

    So, if you are British and don't work over in London at some financial place, you're as bad off as you were before WW11, which was also pretty lousy.

    Disclosure: I have lived in England, it was great, but everyone seemed poor.

    Where did you live in England?

    And in what way are people as badly off as they were before WWII? People are generally far better off than then, and have a far better safety net in place - the obvious example (among many) being the post-war introduction of the NHS.

    I guess that's why all your posts at that time were about the DJIA.

    Nice to see how sour grapes look. When I go short it is not a one time buy. I have been playing the short side the last few months (loading up at the high, selling at the low) and have more than 1 house I can buy in the dump land they call Concord. How are your long positions favouring? Not that well I see. Good luck going forward (or I mean downward). At least you got your huge property tax bill each year as comfort.

    Sour grapes? About your imaginary investment failures? Hardly. And I see you're still peddling those fairy stories. Paint me unsurprised that your story has changed yet again. And what long positions would those be that you're referring to?

    Let me take a wild stab in the dark and suggest that you wouldn't have included the following paragraph if Goldman had been saying BUY, BUY, BUY:

    But investors need to be very skeptical when looking at Goldman's forecasts for gold prices. Not only are they often wrong, but the bank frequently does the opposite of what it recommends.

    I didn't write that.

    I am in favor a gasoline tax to support roads for example. I am against a tax to confiscate wealth.

    There was no income tax really until 1913. Previously taxes on sprits, beer, tobacco, were suffient to run things.

    Taxes were added to sales of other things to pay for the war of 1812.

    In 1862 there was a first income tax, (3%) this was also needed to pay for war activities. Later it was repealed in 1895 by the supreme court.

    1913 the 16th amendment was the actual beginning of income tax but much later it was expanded to tax labor.

    The 60's of course had another bunch of wars to pay for; Vietnam, the Cold War, and LBJ/Democrats "War on Poverty".

    The war on poverty can never be won and we will never stop paying for it.

    To me it's interesting that until 1913 the U.S.A. managed to get by without taxing everyone in ever increasing amounts in ever more inventive ways.

    Why are you comparing life over a 100 years ago to now? Perhaps you'd like to travel back to the era of Dickens whilst you are at it. Or the Middle Ages. Or...

    The point is that cattle destroy the natural eco system. It doesn't make any difference whether that is Nevada or Brazil. Cattle cause destruction.

    And repeated nuclear testing doesn't? Did you protest when a sizable part of Nevada has been made radioactive by the federal government?

    I'm not a US citizen (and I don't live in the US), so perhaps that might be more your responsibility. And I'm not clear why you need to draw in an unrelated topic. One doesn't somehow negate the other.

    Taxes are the way wealth is redistributed downward. This is not what they should be used for.

    I have no right to someone else's property or money and neither does the government. Whether the person is the 1%, the 5%, or the 90% doesn't matter.

    I know how the average liberal lefty thinks. They think someone should have his property taken from him for the greater good of society.

    Yes, stop all taxation. Let's see how that works out...

    lostand confused says

    Umm no. The ecosytem does not exist by itself as the Disney lovers believe.. Grazing animals have been part of the ecosystem for a gazillion years. it is a balance and we play the role of the predators to keep it in balance and check overgrazing. if we don't , the animals will die off from lack of food anyways.

    Cattle have been bred and placed on land often cleared to accommodate them. That hardly makes them a natural part of ecosystems. Ecosystems have been changed (read destroyed) to allow the rearing of these domesticated animals. And it's laughable to say that we play the role of keeping things in balance. What about all the redirecting of potential food/land resources to feed these cattle?

    The majority of cleared Brazilian rainforest is left as grass. Much of that grass is for cattle. Does that not count as destruction in your books?

    Um... We're talking about plains grass lands here, not the Texas rain forest.

    Now I get the missing money aspect of the story.

    And Liberals are a bunch stark raving greedy bastard lunatics.

    So I can understand how this decade long issue, can all of sudden be this administrations most pressing issue, even if Rome is burning to the ground.

    BUT!!!!

    Can you please explain to me how the COWS are destroying the land. Have you ever actually seen a COW, I mean in a real pastoral setting?

    Time flies fast Bigsby. I just knew that in some places house prices have doubled from the crash and you confirmed it for me, so thanks.

    I didn't confirm anything you said. I refuted it. The fact you now want to pretend you said something completely different doesn't change that.
