  2. you've never been to China, try going there and visiting villages outside of tier 5 cities and some tier 4 cities you will see the real face of poverty try visit xinjiang and villages around Kashgar, and you poverty , its not or nowhere near to being eliminated. The truth is China was having problems, Mao's vision isn't working, the fact that Deng Xiaoping opened up economic zones saved china and one of them was shenzhen, during Mao's time it was poor as poor can be, after Mao died ( best thing that happened to China) Deng opened up the city and within 20 years it flourished, today its has over 18 million people, its rivals Hong Kong. Marxism is dying off as the new younger generation sees that its better to have some freedom than none like their cousins in North Korea, they see the differences between Seoul and Pyongyang, they see the difference between a Tier one city like Beijing, Shenzhen and a not so great capital city like Umanqi in Xinjiang and think nah, Marxism isnt appealing. I predict China will be a mixed economy and will lose the communist party and socialism to a degree when the old guards finally die off and the billionaires most of which is in the communist party will give their inheritance to their one child and that generation will transform China into what we see in America, that is assuming they have to political will to do so or maybe they will forged their own idea of what China should be
  3. Trump wants to play the victim. He already has set up the victim card. Now he is going after the very people that investigated him in yet another witch hunt.
  4. And the dumbass demoman says he wasn't impeached. LOL
  5. So you aren't buying the idea that Trump is an extremely stable genius? Bill
  6. Where is leftwinger? LOL Is he still licking his wounds? Maybe he should be at the Hello Kitty forum. It's more his speed.

    Eating bad pork was not the problem persia...it was the residue / fat it left in the the pots them folks ate out of. Now lets get back to killing babies in the womb...whose DEF of a soul are you using; the Judeo-Christian one or the one people who lived in what is now Egypt use ? And once again exman can't answer a question of mine...so he goes right to the agenda playbook. The agenda says...when face with irrefutable facts the dedicate must divert, clamor, be repetitious, equivocate or just totally ignore the argument.
  8. We need more consumer protections for old people who fall victim to scammers and con-men who take them for tens of thousands (and more). Bill

    Emma Goldman

    This rerun of her life on American Experience on PBS the other night was great! Way before her time, she was so smart and so exceptional. American exceptional, until she was deported. She herself claimed she was wrong and way off base after talking to Lenin. She told Lenin that he needed to push for Free Speech, while the Bolshevik revolution was being played out. Lenin joked, do you know what is actually going on here, what with all the looting and killing, and you want Free Speech??? I kind of feel as though we are kind of in that same situation these days. Peace!
  10. The UAE is more enlightened than Saudi Arabia, but of course, it is not Malibu. If you have Netflix, there is a series about a lady lawyer called "Justice". Quite well done and somewhat entertaining.

    The Bible says alot of things that does not make sense and that is because people look at it from thier understanding / realities. I watch Shepherd's Chapel and one thing I have learned from that is: you could spend your entire life studying the Bible and still not understand everything that is written in it. My FAV example of something I learned: Pastor Murray said back than everyone walked everywhere and that a mansion was a resting place...set at certain marks of your journey. So when I read "In my Father’s house are many mansions..." I really never understood what it meant until now. Bob Dylan: They say in your father's house, there's many mansions each one of them got a fireproof floor.

    Wild pigs in Galilee? Really? Do you also believe that insanity is caused by demonic possession? There are a few crazy preachers who are into snake handling, but I have never heard of any preacher curing insanity by exorcising demons into swine. I mean, if Jesus is actually God and God is omnipotent, then swine are not required for mental therapy. Jesus would just need to gesture hypnotically (like Mandrake) and *POOF!* the crazy guy is cured. I am actually from Missouri. You have to show me.
  14. Scumbags like Trump don't scream and drool in demented rage when they're winning. The do it when they're getting their asses kicked.
  15. All Muslims worship a vile murderous pedophile. Those who don't harm others in support of this reprobate are fine with me. Not going to break out a prayer rug but live and let live.
