Halal sounds very much like Kosher to me:)


I was told, by a Muslim co-worker, a few years ago, that if a follower of Islam has no alternative: They may buy from, or eat in, a Kosher Establishment, because the Religious Dietary Laws are similar.

I know. I have friends who are muslims and jews.
But they are not practicing religion.
Just as we dont.

Here in The USA, most people profess to 'Believing', including some of my friends. A large percentage actually Practice their Religion. Hopefully they get it right someday. Just kidding.

When referring to Muslims, I was speaking of those who follow their Dietary Laws.

Russia sends Obama a message

Wonder what the next message would be if Obama ignores it...

The World is a terrible place. With possible terrible consequences for every action.

Wonder if Obama is up to the task?

Back then, they slaughtered the cows alive, and it was horrifying.

As opposed to what?

Forgive me if I don't use the correct terms.

Back in the 50's, as I saw, and my Great Uncle said was 'normal': The Alive cows were forcibly driven into neck stockades, and their throats were slit, while they are alive. Don't need to be more graphic. They then 'hung up' the cows.

Today. They first kill the cow, and I hope other's, with an 'airgun shot' to the head.

Ah i see, so the difference is whether the animal is conscious.

Your earlier statement made it sound like you objected to killing the cow while it was alive, it would be hard to do otherwise.

At least today, they are dead BEFORE the slaughter.

Also cannot understand Boiling Lobster's ALIVE! That's Barbaric!

They are not dead first Clyde.

Abattoirs these days use captive bolt guns to render the animal unconscious before they're hung and have their throats cut so the the heart can pump most of the blood out.

You'd think for an ex-cop you'd get your facts straight first (seeing as you hit others up for making similar errors).

Cheers.

You're correct. But, Unconscious is better than Conscious.

Guess admitting a mistake is the 'Ex-Cop' in me. The Majority do take responsibly for their mistakes.

The Capitalist's transfer money to these people, and the people buy the Capitalist's Goods and Service's, with The Capitalist's own money?

Clyde, if the people don't get enough goods and services they will take them and it won't be pretty for the capitalists.

Nor The People. They will be fighting over The Scraps.

Stop with 'The West Forces Them to do...

Show them some respect, and make them responsible for THEIR Religious Civil War. THEIR 1000 Year History of... The West is NOT Superior to THEM.

In fact. We may be Stupider, or perhaps Inferior to Them. We got involved in THEIR Problems.

So in other words, SSDD, whether or not it's Local, State or Federal.

Quite correct. But... Lesson's the effect of 'Rogue Law Enforcement' if split-up into smaller units..

More automation and use of expert-systems will mean that ever increasing numbers of people will find themselves out of a job.
Soon fast food outlets will replace minimum wage jobs with automation.
Expert systems like IBM's WATSON will start replacing White collar workers.
How will these displaced workers survive if not through government support?
Are profits not just a form of hidden tax levied by corporations with revenues going to investors.
My point is that as technology automates more jobs, society will have to turn to Socialist solutions to provide for the needs of its members.

Agree about the future peril of Automation. But..

If most are out of work. Who pays for all these people's Lodging, Food, Medical Care, etc. The Capitalists?

Since there is not enough income to tax, in order to provide these service's: The Capitalist's transfer money to these people, and the people buy the Capitalist's Goods and Service's, with The Capitalist's own money?

Interesting Economic Theory.

The problems with Capitalism, and the future threat of automation, is very real.

The solution must also be real. Not wishful thinking about Human Nature.

Part of the thread title is "Full force of the law". Just who gets to make that law? State or Federal or maybe both!

Threat of "big small government"

"What Ferguson shows is that the heart of the problem is, in fact, small government - the cops, prosecutors and their bosses with an inflated sense of their powers. The great and growing threat to liberty in this country comes from states and localities run amok."

So which law is better? State or Federal?

Actually, in The USA, it is: Federal, State and Local.

If you have many, many, many Smallish Law Enforcement Authority's: Any harm done, by a few, is Limited. Also, any 'Small' Law Enforcement Agency, if it goes 'bad', can be controlled and punished.

If you Centralize Law Enforcement, History has shown: When, not if, the Centralized Law Enforcement Agency 'Goes Bad': There is, in the Real World, no means of Control. THEY ARE The Control.

As a Child I used to stay at a farm some summers. First summer I saw a calf being born.
Next summer we used to play with him. Both he and we kids enjoyed it. Do anybody know to have your hand in a calves mouth?
Then the summer after a truck came...
The calve felt that something was wrong and it was almost impossibly to get him into truck.

As a child, in the mid 50's. I visited my Great Uncle Otto's, Slaughter House.

Back then, they slaughtered the cows alive, and it was horrifying. Great Uncle Otto was not a vegetarian, and I still eat beef. Additionally, when buying a whole, pre-cooked chicken: I still think to myself "Poor Chicken".

Maybe there's something wrong with me.

Shouldn't the vote then be postponed until All, or at least, Most of the questions, are answered?
Not if they want it before the heat death of the universe.

If not: Do the People of Scotland, if they do not like the answers: Have the ability to 'Repeal' their original vote?
From much of the rhetoric recently, i suspect not. Several campaigners, particularly on the pro-union side, have made frequent reference to this being a permanent decision; including our Prime Minister earlier today.

So, it is just come down to 'Scotland for Scot's'. The same type of thinking, that has happened in many parts of the world. Sometimes with disastrous results.

it's not like you can just move a 10 ton elephant to a less populated area.

You can if you have a big enough truck.

Males usually only grow to maximum of 6 tonnes, females 3.5 tonnes. A large truck could get three males or four females on, though they'd probably need to be sedated.

Where do you put them?

This is not 19th Century Africa. Vast amounts of unpopulated, able to support large herds land, is vanishing, as happened in Europe.

Sorry for this question from an Ignorant 'outsider'.

If Scotland votes for Independence: Is it Immediate, or in the near future - Total? Or a Slow, Step-by-Step, Process?

This referendum is just a question, "Should Scotland be an independent country?"

If answered yes, the actually process will take many months, probably years. No-one really seems to know. However their aim is total independence, apart from having the Queen as head of state, and the Pound as their currency, though that seems increasingly unlikely.
It seems unclear to me what exactly they're hoping will change, most governance issues that pertain to Scotland are already devolved to the Scottish parliament.
They don't even know what currency they're going to use and the vote is eight days away, with planning like that i'll probably be old and grey before Scotland secedes.

Shouldn't the vote then be postponed until All, or at least, Most of the questions, are answered?

If not: Do the People of Scotland, if they do not like the answers: Have the ability to 'Repeal' their original vote?

Republicans worse than ISIL?
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/09/02/dem-candidate-for-congress-says-republicans-worse-than-islamic-state/
The greatest country on earth is being bullied from within. Actions of Republicans in congress are worse than #ISIL.

So now we can really see how far down the sewer a politician will climb.
When I see a tea party member actually behead a democratic member of Congress. I will agree. I call it BS. And big BS.
Both partys are so out of whack I want to vomit. Each party should look in the damn mirror. They both are rotten to the core.
We need term limits for congrass and senatewhores.

Agree 1000%

2 Terms for Senator? 12 Years.

4 Terms for Representative? 8 Years.

Additionally. Nobody will be allowed to live within 100 Miles of D.C., unless Their District/State in included within the limitation.

And MOST Importantly. When their Term's are completed: They Can Not MOVE to within 100 Miles of D.C.

Would like TWO to FOUR Year's for ALL. But, let's be practical.

We took a boat several times to see the whale's.

Looked into the eye of a whale. They breathe air like we do.
They give birth to live young like we do. But the similarities seem to stop there. Their scale, body structure, and environment are all different.

The killing of these magnificence mammals, has got to stop. :(

I also go to swim with the Dolphins. Dolphins are highly intelligent marine mammals and are part of the family of toothed whales that includes orcas and pilot whales. They are found worldwide, mostly in shallow seas of the continental shelves, and are carnivores, mostly eating fish and squid. Dolphin coloration varies, but they are generally gray in color with darker backs than the rest of their bodies.

I'm also very disgusted with the continued senseless Japanese whaling corruption.

Lynn...

Same here.

Understand for Food, and 'Culling' so the population does not starve.

One of the saddest things I saw, on TV, was the 'Culling' of an Elephant Herd in Africa, due to overpopulation.

When they started shooting: ALL the adult females (all related) herded the young, and then surrounded them, in an attempt to shield them. The Females then turned towards the shooter's, while still shielding their young, 'yelling' towards the shooters. Very, very, very sad. But, I guess, must be done.
