Just an addition...

Why is Chinese Leadership willing, as I believe, to engage in a Military Confrontation, with The USA, over 'New Islands'?

Because they do understand how fragile their Economy, and thier continuation in Power, is.

They must have the Oil, which is there. They understand their Energy cannot be under the protection of a Non-Friend (USA).

They understand their systemic problem. Why don't others?

Understand I look at the Present, as if it is 1000/2000 years from now (how I taught). What is different, and similar, to 1000/2000 years ago, from today?

Really nothing.

Right, so you believe that nothing is similar yet nothing has changed as well. At least, that is what you literally just stated. That is an interesting take on history, but also immediately proves history is anything but your area of expertise.

Most living today, as then: Believe they are different, and the outcome will be different.

You don't know what people believe nor how it affects their handling of the situation they find themselves in.

Understanding Historical Time Frames: Is to understand that Collapses, which appear to happen quickly - are a matter of decades.

No collapse is permanent or total. Europes power has waned compared to the 19th century, but we are still around and a force to be reckoned with. China has 'collapsed' after it was one of the most powerful countries on the planet for thousands of years, and now they are back. Russia 'collapsed' after the fall of the Soviet Union, and while they have not completely recovered, they are still a major player on this planet.


China, since it doesn't Control the 'means of their wealth', will end up like all the others. They too, didn't understand.

Right, if anyone understands their base of power its China. I'm not to worried about their sudden collapse any time soon.

Again: Collapse - Does not mean elimination, of course.

Historically, unless China can project its Military Power Internationally, and soon: They are, as many others in the past, subjected to the whims, and bad intentions, of other Countries and Interests.

Western Europe, has been living as a Protectorate, to the American Empire. Helps both sides. Western Europe does not have the International Military Capability to defend it's energy, or imports. That was left up to the American Empire, with its Powerful Navy, Air Force, and International Logistic Bases. This helped both sides economically, and also helped defend against another Expanding Empire (USSR). Nothing new since Sumeria.

The West has deep problems, but surmountable. China has deep, deep, systemic problems.

Wish I was living 1000 years from now. To see which side collapsed first (ALL collapse). And how it happened.

Nothing new, if you understand he history, of these type of countries. China is temporary, as history teaches us.

Clearly you have never touched a history book if you honestly believe that China is only 'temporary'. They have been around longer and generally where more advanced than everyone else. The Chinese people have never been healthier, safer, wealthier and enjoyed more freedom than right at this moment.

My area of expertise, of course. Probably not yours.

Understand these types of Threads are only an 'Introduction to... (light)'. Cannot be different. Unless one is on an ego trip, as many here are, and give long winded, ain't I greater, smarter and more educated than you.

They are not really. But, their problem.

Understand I look at the Present, as if it is 1000/2000 years from now (how I taught). What is different, and similar, to 1000/2000 years ago, from today?

Understanding Historical Time Frames: Is to understand that Collapses, which appear to happen quickly - are a matter of decades.

Our Present Era (Post WWII) is 7 Decades old. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

BTW: Temporary, in Historical Terms, does not mean the existence of a Country, of course. Only their Power.

China, since it doesn't Control the 'means of their wealth', will end up like all the others. They too, didn't understand.

Clyde how you going to make the touch screens you don't have lot's of rare earths mate so that mite just cause you a problems and a big one at that .
It looks to me it's the U.S that can have there economy stuffed up quick if China stopped doing business

All these 'rare earths' are in North America. Mines were shut down because of Chinese Prices.

Yes, US Economy goes into a recoverable depression. China Collapses, and their non-docile people (as history teaches us) will cut off their leaders heads.

If it comes to a war Clyde they can get the raw materials from Russia and Mongolia . The oil will come from the south china sea as well as Russia and then what if Iran joins them they will have plenty of oil . The west has made a lot of ememy's so don't think we will get there support if it comes down to a war .

China gets the needed replacement of energy, from non-friends, within weeks'months? They are already 'gone'.

Nothing new, if you understand he history, of these type of countries. China is temporary, as history teaches us.

Add to that, Inner City Schools and Community Leaders.
Who's running them?
Republicans? KKK?
Who?
All successful oppressed groups took power, and said: 'Screw them. We don't need them. We can do it'.
Most Inner Cities, within The USA, have not been Governed by The Republicans, or the KKK, over the past few decades.
Stop the 'Blame Game' and DO IT. Everyone else has. Only a racist would believe Blacks cannot succeed without Non-Black help or approval.

I come to Think of first Detroit and now Chicago hearing this.
Who are running cities in the US?

Mostly Democrats run Inner Cities. Some for decades. Also the failing schools, and their teacher unions.

Interestingly, the Democrats are against 'School Choice'. Where inner city (poor and black) would be able to have better (non-public) schools, with taxpayer assistance. The 'other party' is for this.

Since in The USA, most Democrats are now Liberal: Who's policy is really to blame?

Note: I am Pro-Union/Anti-Capitalist. But I do understand that Liberal/Left Wing thinking and solutions, are a disaster to Black people.

Think of the Marxist 'solution' to Capitalism. Same regarding this issue.

Up is Up, and Down is Down.
Righty tighty, Lefty loosey.
Left is never Right.
So Left is Wrong, and Left is Bad.
Any child can understand that, and many do.

I do.

Oh oh.

Easy victim blaming and absolving your own responsibility. America is not racist, black people aren't getting ahead in life because of racism, its all because they are part of a culture that tells them to don't even try. Its all on them.

You are right it is a culture telling them they can't succeed. The people telling them are the guilty. Who is doing that today? Mom and Dad!

Add to that, Inner City Schools and Community Leaders.

Who's running them?

Republicans? KKK?

Who?

All successful oppressed groups took power, and said: 'Screw them. We don't need them. We can do it'.

Just a note to other Posters.

I will ignore this compulsive.

Wonder what this person thinks about 297902 post, or my response.

In many of the under-developed countries male-privilege is a serious problem.
In most industrialized countries not so much.
The booklet "The Manipulated Man", by Esther Vilar, holds many truths that men suspect are in play in female-male relationships.
The intro to the MCP thread, now closed, reminded me of Vilar's book.
Any signifcant change to the power imbalance between men and women can only come about through a co-operative effort.
Stop calling men sexist and maybe they'll listen more.( That's not an order.)

As you correctly point out: Name calling corrects nothing.

Are there serious problems? Of course.

A co-operative effort, not only means men listening to women's concerns. But women listening to men's concerns.

When people such as yourself stop posting political B/S & provide your own personal views once in a while.

Sirius B...

Very mature. As always.

Haven't heard your attitude, since I was 16. Well maybe 18.

I do welcome your silliness. It is a necessary break, in this important discussion.

As an answer to your question: When The Left, as The Right, posts their B/S. I just point it out.

What exactly is your problem, when the foundation of your 'thinking' is shown to be totally....?

Just show why there is a God, or your Ideology (Same thing), is correct.

Of course you cannot. Therefore you, as an Ideologue, as Religious Fanatics also do, degenerate to name calling. As most of your posts display.

But you are interesting. In a weird sort of way.

Now the Left, after decades of promoting the lie of ...isms upon the majority of Individual Whites and Males. And having been shown wrong - of course:

The Left is now promoting male/white privilege.

Question: How many more decades do we have to suffer this?

Answer: Many

Question 2: What do they come up with next?

Maybe, but you do have to give her kudos - to stop, get out, give the cops the "bird" get back in & drive off. She did as she pleased :-)

However, it cost her! WAS IT WORTH IT?

Only she can answer that. Unfortunately, for many the answer is yes.

A few people are awarded fortunes.

Most are screwed.

Say 'Yes Sir/Ma'am' and take any problem up later.

Unless you're 'Stupid, or something'.

You can please some of the people some of the time, but you cannot please all the people all of the time

Saira Khan - A British Muslim highlights how good comedy can be attacked by many with closed minds.

Is it working for you?

Hope so.

Keep it up. I like laughing.

As do I, it keeps one youthful & fit, so please continue giving all our "daily bread" :-)

Not good enough.

Have to come up with your, not repeat, my response.

Never is.

As every adult instructed us, many decades ago:

Do what the Cops say. If you didn't, they would say (with much truth):

"Are you stupid, or something".

the women were sex objects (many times).

In every show women where sex objects.
But I only remember the silly tune when Benny chased women:)

Hill made fun of both males and females.

Always thought he was making more fun of males.

He was the 'Buffoon Male', and in every skit.

I'm convinced that Clyde understand that joke.
I know what countries his grandparents came from:)

Yes, a nice racist joke. This thread is about racism & as pointed out by several, for so called intelligent people to use nationality, colour or disability to garner laughs says much of the person.

There's enough material out there for funny jokes, so surprised with many that they use much content as seen on these types of threads.

The OP is correct, all of us are racist in form or another whether or not we realise it.

Sirius B...

Have Viking Blood in me.

Have Somalia Blood, in me.

Have two wonderful Black Grandchildren..

Raised by my Jewish Grandmother, in a Roman Catholic household. Lost family members in the Holocaust.

Therefore: Racists (of all sides), Sexists, Anti-Semites, Nazi's, etc. - ARE MY ENEMY.

I wish to thank The Left, for defending me against the ...ist's.

And why you choose to do that is totally up to you as well.

Right, enough childish banter, I'm signing off for today, I have more important things to do in real life.

& how many times have you stated that? Getting too hot in the kitchen for you?

You're retired & suggesting the rest of us have nothing important to do but make comments on a public forum is nothing but the actions of idle people?

HOW "superior" of you. Makes one wonder how you managed to cope with all those inferior people you met & worked with over the years.

Will miss Chris S.

Find the above response to his departure, to be laughable, in it's usual unthinking attacks.

Have mostly disagreed with Chris S.

But he was a 'breath of fresh air' to the tired, old, and stale, Left.

The only one on this board who is unthinking is yourself. You have yet to make a sensible comment in any of your posts to date.

Is it possible you don't know how to do that?

Sirius B...

Very adolescent and childish understanding, of other poster's..

Will you, and other, basically adolescent 'thinking' ideologues' ever grow up?

Answer: No.

But you have progressed from 'Laugh of The Day', to 'Laugh of The Hour'.

Keep it up. I like laughing.

Benny Hill.
A group of critics accused the show of sexism, but Hill said that female characters kept their dignity while the men who chase them were portrayed as buffoons.
I only remember this very funny episode.
No sex included:)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=191tBvVsqDs

Yes and no. Used to watch in the 70's.

The Men were buffoons (most of the time), and the women were sex objects (many times).

The only problem with the feminist's attack against Hill:

They can 'Dish it out, but...'

Do the feminists understand they continually display, as everyone can see: Their own, Anti-Male Sexism. Including name calling, and possibly hatred of women, whose individual and free decisions, they do not agree with?

We do understand the answers.


Clyde who is we? Is that an admission of multiple personalities? That could explain a lot.

You are making my point.

Will your type ever understand?

BTW: Why do you believe the back and forth, in the PM's, is a sign of multiple...?

Do you need help, with your 'problem'?

BTW 2: Love, and laugh, at all the childish attacks by...

Do you guys/gals understand?

Keep it up. We are amused in the PM's, by the unthinking silliness.
