So BOTH Russia and Ukraine collapse?

So?

Russia is starting to feel the effects of The Putin Collapse.

Start worrying about Putin, not Ukraine.

Does believing, or not believing in a God, makes a person good or bad?


Yes!



Sorry to hear you believe that.

If you wish to believe in a God, and are a good person: Who cares about your Belief?

If you don't believe in a God, and are a good person: Who cares about your Non-Belief?

Does believing, or not believing in a God, makes a person good or bad?

The US and Canada doesn't.


well clyde if you can't expand it then you will be forced to buy fom them or the Russians

And your country still owes how much again ????

So your not realy in any better position then the Russians when it come to paying your debts

Canada might not have a problem but i'm not shore if they owe much .

You really don't understand what the numbers really mean. Nor Economics 101.

Oh, by the way...

If you really think it is that bad...

You have been living in Our House (but will not admit it), and IF it burns down, you are homeless.

Good luck.

For those who argue for gun control, read this & weep...

8 Children found dead in Cairns, Australia - reportedly stabbed

And very likely another illegal firearm involved again. :-(

Illegal? Probably.

The Art of War is not an art you understand or are talented in.

Coming from a bookworm with no experience himself to rely on is insulting to say the least.


It's amazing what you can learn from books. They are so powerful that now and again dictators have to burn them.


:) +1

The eternal 'problem' with Learning from Books, without Experiences, is this:

Without Experience - Book Learning has the Reader believe there are Real, and Eternal Solutions.

With Experience - One realizes there are No Real, nor Permanent Solutions. That ALL 'Solutions' are Temporary, and carry 'the seeds' of more problems.

Therefore (regarding his discussion): The 'Solution' of War, and all its destruction, is acknowledged by those advocating - to be temporary, and may bring 'other' problems. That is the Real World.

Note: Lived Decades in the World of Experience, and The World of Books.

I disagree. I belive it is to punish Russia. Make mideast oil cheaper than Russian oil


James it's got nothing to do with Russia after all they cam produce it just as cheap as the Arab's . Don't cost much to drill a hole and just pump it out but Canada's oil tar sands well that is totally different .
And to think your spending heaps on a pipeline to bring the oil down to the gulf , mmmmmmmm one big white expencive white elephant . And it's going to cost poor Canada and you guys heaps of cash if you keep extracting it from the tar sand s . minimum to break even on that is $65 per barrel.

And to think the terrorist get a lot of cash from them back stabbing Sudia's

Negative, know people working in that Industry.

At $40, production WILL continue, with little profit, and payment of borrowed money will be delayed (has already been agreed to)

The $60-$70 Price is the minimum necessary, for profits, needed for EXPANDING Production.

The Mid-East, and Russia, NEED high profitability to 'Pay Off' their People.

The US and Canada doesn't.

Who 'Breaks First'? Give me a break.

NATO starts a war with the Russian Federation?!

The present report on how Russia's economy devastated by sanctions and the ruble is falling at a rate compared to the dollar on the amount of stock held by artificially, which in fact does not have any real value, they are just preparing for a huge provocation, which will probably be against the Ukrainian army used a nuclear weapon and throws it to Russia.

Everything Gary says is correct.

Why we are not in an Emergency Mode to 'Harden' our Systems, from the Inevitable Attack, I don't know.

Good luck to us.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/12/18/it-okay-to-hate-republicans-michigan-professor-writes-in-column/
A University of Michigan professor already known for her partisan views confirmed the suspicions of students when she penned a column for a non-profit magazine titled, "It's okay to hate Republicans."

Well, if it is okay to hate one minority group, why not another say women university professors or the subject here; a race?

Just my personal experiences.

As a recently retired Associate Professor at a Local University in Miami, after a Career as an NYPD Detective, and prior Service in Vietnam:

Have found that those Serving in the Armed Forces and Police Departments, are MORE Tolerant, than those Employed at University's of Higher Education.

You have to understand he does like to make these silly accusations.

His experience in War, and Combat, has to be more extensive than mine.

His experience, and training in the Art of War, when assigned to NATO, has to be more extensive than mine.

He also believed, because his experience is more extensive than mine, that a gun pointed at you, for 2 seconds, is not dangerous.

I believe he is a young and inexperienced person.

Hopefully he will come to understand.

An all-white jury convicted him in a flash, 10 minutes.

Did they even leave the Jury Box?

That era seems to be more disgusting than I thought.

Edit: The OJ Jury also took a short time. Racial Decisions are, as I said, Disgusting.

Edit 2: 4 Hours and reportedly had packed Their Bags PRIOR to Deliberations. How would they know what the other Jurors thought?

There's a simple enough answer, but the West is too scared to do it & all because of Civil Rights.

Kick them into the 21st century.

You want an Islamic state, fair enough. Let's see how you feed them when the West kicks out all of Islam, with the provisio that if they attempt to expand outside of that territory, they'll be attacked.

Unfortunately, we are being dragged into a 'Perfect Storm' of Jihadists attempting to restore a Caliph, and an Islamist Civil War.

So...

They'll have what they want, no interference from the West & we'll sit back & watch them kill each other - self inflicted genocide.

Understand the idea of a 'Fence'.

What would you do with their supporter's living in The West?

However it is a big wake up call to business that anyone can at any time close them down. Better get some real expert IT in place. Think of what he could do to a power grid, air traffic control, traffic and train signals, a refinery, or an operating reactor! Get a good nights sleep.

Never advocated Nuke's, except for Tactical Nuke's against Jihadist Iran's Nuclear Weapons Production Facilities (Necessary to destroy).

A problem is that ISIS are aiming for the Nuclear Weapons Production Facilities in Iran


see there you go . If we don't get them first they won't hesitate to get us and we all know who the target will be and then it will on for young and old .

Clyde you Americans have to learn to forgive , Iran has changed . We need to help them not make them our ememy . most of the jihadi's come from Sudia Arabia and it's them freaking Sudia's we need to watch , there the one's bankrolling the jihadi's .

If you are wrong...

We will see.

Edit: The Saud's are paying 'Protection Money'.

Then how come Bin Laden got away ??? And so did many of his men !!

The 'Revenge War', having spoken to Personnel involved back then:

Was not meant to Capture ANYONE (that would be done later), nor 'Overthrow' the Jihadist Government.

It was meant as 'A Warning' to them, and other Governments not to Harbor, nor assist, those attempting to kill Americans on US soil, like 9/11.

According to those involved: Intercepts confirmed that they were completely 'shocked' by the level of response, and were trying to figure out how to get the Leadership, and their Training Camps, out of Afghanistan.

Then Bush...

That story is funny . Still a silly threat . If push came to shove nothing would happen .Kim mite seem to be a nutter but i don't think he's that stupid as to realy do something . North Korea are all noise . Attcking south Korea has not lead to a invasion . lope a few missile over the boarder maybe kill a few people but it never goes much father than that . he knows if it came to a real fight he will lose . But then again the great sear did say the mongal king would make a premtive strick against the west so i guess we better be carefull

Wars have been lost, and people's defeated, by thinking someone would not do something 'That Stupid'.

History confirms that.

Yeh Clyde that didn't work to well in Afganistan when we had them in there bunker on that mountain they still got away and they where surounded and being carpet bombed then . if you guys had just droped one nuke on that mountain we would have got them all inculing Bin Laden . Carpet bombing didn't work to well on the veit con either . In fact capet bombing has had limited success ever since aircraft where used to drop bombs . Hitler tryed it and failed even the allies failled most of the time in wwII with a few exceptions .

It DID work in Afghanistan.

Unfortunately, Bush turned a War of Revenge (Don't do THAT again), into Nation Building.

That is what failed.

In the not too distant past.

This type of Harassment world be done by Telephone, Letters, or in Person, and the Harasser could easily be located, and Arrested.

Now with basically Internet Anonymity, and therefore a Huge Increase in this type of crime: Most will not suffer the consequences.

Brave New World.
