Besides, now someone wants to debate the meaning of debate? LOL!

debate: noun
A discussion in which reasons are advanced for and against some proposition or proposal
Seems like a debate is a discussion .........


Somebody finally got it. Figures it had to be someone with brains. Now, as to the original claim that we somehow are not having a discussion here....

Or just a small group, congratulating themselves. Regarding their 'Brainlyness'.

Give up, anyone else want to try .....

You're giving up attempting to say that Military Weapon Systems are not 'Insured' by a Government, and are by Private Companies?

Are there any private armies in the World?

Yes. But they are not insured by Private Insurance Company's.

Many are designated as 'Security' Company's. Paid for by Governments.

Unknown if they are covered by Unemployment Insurance, or Workman's Compensation. In this capacity. :) :) :)

It is based upon ridiculous belief in the Superiority of Their Thinking [sic].

You missed off a k.

Made my point (as I knew you would).

Do you truly understand that?

No.

You are very easy. Thank you.

Well...

This silly little Agenda Driven 'Ignore' is, of course, Intellectually Flawed. It is based upon a ridiculous belief in the Superiority of Their Thinking [sic].

They attempt to drive out those who they disagree with Them. It is typical of Them. One of the failures of Human Nature.

The 'Ignore' Controllers do not understand there are many, many, many different beliefs within these Forum's.

Therefore their Motto: 'Of Us, By Us, and For Us', Controls their actions.

We do understand Their Beliefs have been, quite correctly, shown to be ignorant.

But let us, in these Forum's, not lower ourselves to Their Level.

Note to Dull: Keep on Posting. Don't let these 'Types' win.

Edit: Many do enjoy your Posts. Let 'The Controllers' talk among themselves. 'Controllers' really don't matter in an Intellectual Discussion.

Well Daily Mail is perhaps not the best source:)

Anyway. Grab the problem before it grows big.

The Source is Duke University.

Any problem with Duke University?

- Duke University study looked at 1,000 years of temperature records

- It compared it to the most severe emissions scenarios by the IPCC

- Found that natural variability can slow or speed the rate of warming

- These 'climate wiggles' were not properly accounted for in IPCC report

Interesting Duke University Study, and conclusions.

Any Non-Agenda Drive, Thoughtful Reply?

Please no name calling, and the like, silliness.

The prosecution rests.

Just Martin, being Martin.


So... No useful comment or discussion. Just ad-homium.


Looks like you both have no case or anything much to offer to any discussion.

Long past time for you both to "rest"?...


All in the Amerikan Gone-West!...

Why, when losing an argument:

The Right, as The Left, say the above sillyness?

Because in their silly little Intellectually Cloistered World: It works.

Martin. Please enter the Real World. It is much bigger than you can imagine.

What was incorrect about This Ruling?

The only thing wrong is Martin's mind is hermetically sealed. It appears to operate like this, once upon a time a man discriminated against a woman, therefore all men always discriminate against women. Same thinking as a black man broke the law therefore all black men break the law.

Now, I'm sure Martin wasn't sitting in the jury box so he does not know what evidence was presented, nor did he watch the witnesses testify to know their creditability, so how he can form an opinion on this specific case .... he can't, but he can use a thought process like that outlined above .....

That might be what YOU alone think and an unfortunate example of your style of thought processes.

Or are you lost in your own prejudices?...


So... To clear one small point: The OJ Simpson example was used just to highlight how USA courts appear to be more greatly influenced by the flamboyance of the lawyers and the protagonists than by the actual merits of the case...

Another single example being touted as a universal truth. Not one word on the specific case.

The prosecution rests.

Just Martin, being Martin.

Well, the thugs attempting to make everything Race failed.

New tactics, same agenda.

BTW: Don't intervene. Or as our parents said, many decades ago, in a White neighborhood: 'Do what the Cops tell you to do. Only a complete idiot will not. You're not Stupid, are you?'

And if you didn't, and bad things happened. They, and your buddies would say 'You Stupid, or something?'

The current mod team have three females and 4 males. Does any one agree with me that the balanace these days is far better than previous virtually all male teams?

Equality works!!

Agree.

Understanding the 'make up', also depends upon who is available.

Note: They were all male, in the past?

As we've seen in some of the rather patronising sexist comments on this thread recently, moving to a more balanced and enlightened 'attitude' and culture is in some areas still a long long way away...

Here's yet another example and one example where the numbers are suggestive:


Ellen Pao faces $1m legal bill in sexism case

Ellen Pao, the woman who took a Silicon Valley firm to court over sexism claims and lost, has been asked to pay legal costs of nearly $1m (£660,000).

Venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins has said it will waive these costs if former employee Ms Pao does not appeal against the jury's decision...



And for my own experience for my 'high tech' areas of work, the male-female ratio has been as extreme as 200:1 !!! For various areas I've seen in high tech, women seem to be seen as more of a 'non-tech support'.

All from too many years of 'stereotyping' and 'type-casting'?

Unfortunately, attitudes seem to be inherited and perhaps need a few generations to break out into new areas...

Interestingly, the far more pleasant office areas where I've worked have been where the male/female balance has been better balanced.


A crying need for better balanced education and less misogynist TV and religion?

All in our only one world,
Martin

So...

This Individual Accusation, was deemed Legally False.

This is why, one should not believe Every Individual Claim, about anything, as Gospel.

Except... So dubiously so that there is great temptation placed there to dissuade from taking the case further...


So... Also the case that the American legal system looks to be more of a gameshow gamble than of dispassionate judgement... "OJ Simpson" anyone?...

All in our only one world,
Martin

Why is This Case, the same as OJ?

What was incorrect about This Ruling?

Can Western Europe afford, perhaps millions (why not), of New Poor into their County's/Cultures, in the meantime?

We can't but we don't need to deal with 'millions'. The idea that all immigrants come from poor countries to rich countries is utter nonsense. Europe deals with about 10% of the world immigrant population. The vast majority stays in the region they are born in.

How does Secular, and Tolerant Western Europe, assimilate all these Religious, Non-Tolerant people?

How nice of you to just brush over all those non white people non Christian people as religious zealots and intolerant. Those people are human beings who want just one thing, a better life for themselves and their families. They want to work, get an education, earn money and be able to afford all the nice stuff that we hold for granted. They risk their lives for that, and what do they get. People like you, who judge them like you just did.

Sorry for these Inconvenient Questions. I am just a Practicable Person, who believes in Practicable Solutions.

They aren't inconvenient questions, they are ignorant questions that show you don't know jack about the scale, scope and nature of the problem.

Мишель...

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. More name calling, when wrong.

Your entire Rant is not unusual, regarding attacking a 'Blasphemer' to your thinking.

Your Rant is entirely consistent, as if coming from a Religious Fanatic, attacking a Non-Believer.

Ignorant? No.

Just outside your 'Belief System'.

Will you ever understand?

you know it wasn't all that long ago there was a boat filled with people and no country would let them dock ....Voyage of the Dam'd ! comes to mind .

My how we have not learnt the lessons of the past .

Sorry - No, and rarely will. Unless people perceive it will help (money and/or freedom) them.

As History, and Human Nature, shows.

Waving ones finger at, or saying 'I am more moral/better than you', does not fix any problem.

Africa don't need Money. It's a rich continent. They just need technological help and assistant.
It seems to go faster in some African contries then predicted in many ways to get out of poverty.

If Europe cannot afford to help Africa then we are doomed.
Religion? Are you serious? Most countries are secular even in Africa.

If no one ask Inconvenient Questions or talk about issues then what will happen?
Everyone Political correct?

Here is some depressing stats.
Reporters Without Borders
https://index.rsf.org/#!/

Are we speaking of the entire African Continent, or North Africa?

The African Continent has different Races, Religions, Country's, Cultures, Wealth, etc.

The 'Wealthy' portions of This Continent, are going to 'share' their Wealth with different Races, Religions, Cultures, Country's, etc.

Using the Eurasian Continent, as an example: Ain't gonna happen.

Poor Germany, however, will they still employ Londoners?

DB receives record fine

"The Department orders the Bank to take all steps necessary to terminate seven employees, who played a role in the misconduct but who remain employed by the Bank: one London-based Managing Director, four London-based Directors, one London-based Vice President, and one Frankfurt-based Vice President."

Reminds me of Government. Where they also will not dismiss.
