yes Clyde i understand that and i understand you American love you money so much there's fat chance of changing your mind either .

You're quite correct. The Color of America is GREEN. If you have GREEN, you're accepted.

Very practical, and stops the Ideology's from taking control, as happens around The Globe.

Another case of driving while black - just reaching for his license as requested http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/25/sean-groubert-fired-arrested_n_5879694.html. Cop lost his job and has been arrested -- finally one that got what was coming to him, hopefully he'll be found guilty and serve some time. At the start you see the man's truck in front of the cruiser, leaving approx. 7 seconds before the cop pulls off and seems to be exiting the location. At the street he backs up and you see the man already out of his truck. The officer asks for his license and the man reaches back into the truck to get it.

Then we have a case of shopping while black, in which no charges will be brought against the cop. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/24/john-crawford-iii_n_5876574.html?utm_hp_ref=crime

Or, this. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/23/denver-deputies-kill-marvin-booker-homeless_n_5865092.html?utm_hp_ref=black-voices&ir=Black%20Voices

Meanwhile Marlene Pinnock, the 51 year old great-grandmother who was beaten by CPH trooper Daniel Andrew, has settled her suite for 1.5 million and Adrew resigns. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/25/marlene-pinnock-california-highway-patrol-beating-settlement_n_5879514.html

Why would a White person be Racist?

I have been taken out of my car, at Gun Point, as a Middle Aged White Male. Did I believe this was done, because one of the Officer's was Black, and therefore...?

Yelling Racism, at any Race. When there are many other reason's for a Cop's 'Bad Behavior', is Bigotry.

Note: Too bad Marlene Pinnock has 'Emotional Issues': OTHER People will be spending her money.

Now everyone understand that economic is based on credit and promissory notes you could have a system where people get a wage but there would have to be a understanding that you would have to do something for it even if it just a street sweeper all it will take is the will to change our way of thinking .

Change Human's 'way of thinking' when it comes to 'Paper Money'? It took 5000 years for Humans to Accept Paper Money.

The World is not some huge 'Re-Education Camp'.

Here we go again. :-(

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/exclusive-pregnant-woman-thrown-nypd-article-1.1950499

An NYPD officer was caught on a disturbing video tackling a clearly pregnant woman and riding her to the ground early Saturday in Brooklyn.

The recording shows Sandra Amezquita, who is 5-foot-4 and five months pregnant, being grabbed by the arm and thrown to the pavement with the cop on her back in Sunset Park around 2:15 a.m.

The baby’s father, Ronel Lemos, said he watched in horror as his wife hit the ground belly-first.

“The first thing I thought was they killed my baby and they’re going to kill my wife,” Lemos, 50, told the Daily News on Tuesday.

Moments later, another unidentified woman was violently flung to the ground on Fifth Ave. and 41st St.

“You would think the police would respect a woman that is pregnant,” Amezquita, 43, said through an interpreter in an exclusive interview with The News.

“I was afraid something happened to my baby. I am still afraid that something is wrong,” she said, referring to the abdominal pain that persists.

Not a good at all.

In general: Ever been surrounded by Family Member's attempting to physically stop a loved one from being arrested? They are, just Human Nature, A MOB.

Physical violence, against police, by police, or at anytime: Is ugly

Come on all you economic professors answer my question .

Why is the dollar not worth anything ?

It's economic's 101

Here's a clue it's printed on the dollar note

The Dollar, HAD Real Value when 'backed' by first Gold, then Silver. Which for some reason, Humans have always thought of them having Real Value. No more. This applies to other paper currency's.

To simplify: The Value of paper Currency's is based upon the 'Good Faith' of the issuing Country's, and this 'Good Faith' is accepted by Other's around The Globe. It is, in the end, artificial, and basically a 'Story Accepted'.

Yes, I do understand the Foundation's regarding the Value of Paper Currency's. They are truly artificial, but accepted.

The car you drive is an expert system and is becoming more so with each new model year.

I'll call it an expert system when my car drives me.
I don't consider not having to pull out the choke to start my car much of an expert system.

Are you an 'Old Timer' like me?

Does anyone remember the 'Manual' Choke and 'Vacuum' Windshield Wipers?

Or do you have specification for how to build a mechanical brain?
Dont think so. Nobody has.

Like Julie just said. They have no soul.
What a boring World.

Well yeah, but we don't need to build an exact replica of the human brain. All we need is the bit that gives it self awareness and intelligence. Granted, not an easy task, but given the extremely big leaps we made in the fields of computing and artificial intelligence of the past few decades and Im confident that it wont take more than a few more decades before we have self aware, hyper intelligent computers.

Is Awareness, ability to Feel Love, Hate, Joy & Sadness: Just 'Computing Power'?

Algerian militants behead kidnapped French tourist

When, not if, this happens inside The West. Let's say 'Home Grown' Jihadist's invade a Children's School, be-head some children, then kill themselves.

What will the reaction be?

Machines will never be able to replace people completely imo. For instance in my job, people will always be needed, or doctors, nurses, daycare centers, psychiatrists, psychologists, priests, singers, ... and so on... I don't see machines doing those jobs...

That's for Humans.

What happens when Machines decide THEY don't need Humans.



That would be called Sci-fi in human terms:) Machines don't have a own will or rather, don't have the capacities of a human brain.

Yet :)



Mother Nature didn't make them!

Mother Nature made The Humans, who made the Machines.

Just shows Evolution is a fact. :) :) :)

Hence all the recent demonstrations around the world to overcome the Fossil-fuel lobbying?

Are they demonstrating inside China? Are they demanding China STOP their vast increase...

Oooer... Such an old distraction.

Of course :)

CO2 emissions – China is the big hockey stick in the room

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/07/06/co2-emissions-china-is-the-big-hockey-stick-in-the-room/

In fact. China emits 72% MORE co2 into the atmosphere than The US.

http://www.nationmaster.com/country-info/compare/China/United-States/Environment

China increase in co2, is more than The US Decrease.

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/06/11/china-and-co2/

These Demonstrations must be considered 'Political'. Until China, the 500 pound gorilla in the room, is addressed.

3D printers can only produce parts in plastic or sprayed metal. They can't drop forge for strength, or harden and temper with heat treatment. Mechanisation has been going on since the Luddites in the early 17C, from plugboard capstans, to CNC milling machines, to modern car production lines. Machines still need machine minders.

Well thats changing. 3d printers are just in their early stages of what I believe will be nothing but a revolution in the field of home production. Now they 'print' soon they will assemble. Up until we are dealing with nano assemblies that can produce pretty much anything thanks to nano machines.

Also, the machine minders are going to become obsolete soon. Machines that can self diagnose and self regulate, that can essentially fix themselves. Sure, we are not there yet, but give it 20-30 years and they will be able to do just that. There will always be some human overseeing the whole operation, sure, but the fact remains that there will be less humans needed, so there will be less humans able to get a job.

And that is the problem here. Its not that jobs are completely disappearing, the problem is that in a decade, maybe two decades, a significant part of the population simply wont be able to get a job, because there arent any jobs for them to do. And our current way of dealing with unemployment wont work then.

Agree... But...

Machines being able to 'Fix' themselves, without human intervention, does not advance the technology.

When 'Machines' are able to do this...

Have seen this scenario, in many Science Fiction Movies.

Last time i show'd some one some documents about the Catholic church they got peed off with me , and didn't talk to me for week i finally said to him you asked me to show you so i did and now your peed off . Don't get peed off with the messenger you ask to see it

My motto is: If you're going to ask a "hot" question, be prepared for a "hot" answer. If you don't want to hear a "hot" answer, don't ask the question!

Also. Be prepared for the "hot" response, to the "hot" answer.

yes i agree with that there are crack pots on the warming side too

There are. And they are the ones with the voices in the media.

Agree 100%.

The Media, and others, keep on Reporting every crazy, 'EVERYTHING happening is because of Man Made Climate Change' (MMCC): IE: OMG!!!!! There are too many crabs on the beach!!!! MUST be because of MMCC!!!!

The other side: We CAN'T be causing ANY Problem.

Can both sides get rid of their Crazy's, and let's have a Mature, non-name calling, discussion?

Money comes from Consumption.


You have it exactly backwards mi amigo:

Money (CAPITAL) comes from PRODUCTION. The US and China and all Produced themselves to a higher standard of living.

What is done with 'The Production', if their is no Consumption?

ow Jan don't get me started on the Catholic church mate.

I'm an Atheist. My wife is a Practicing Roman Catholic. I do help The Church regarding Security at Bingo Night's, and other events, because of my previous occupation. Yes, they do know about my Non-Belief, and don't 'push me'.

Responding to the above quote.

When living in New York City, years ago. 'Our' Monsignor, with whom I shared Irish Whiskey on many occasions, said to me, while discussing the latest Church Scandal:

'You have to remember that every person, in The Church, from the Holy Father down, is A Sinner'. He was stating Christen Doctrine.

All Human organizations contain Evil. It is the percentage that matters.
