After The Guillotine, things get WORSE for The People. Just History and Human Nature.

Really? I take it you've never been to France. Lovely country.

Isn't this really off topic.

Only if you don't know French history.

Might know this. Family was living in Paris on a day that Guillotine was famously used on a queen and her severed head was paraded down the street on a pole by the family abode.

That was not a good time. It got worse. A lot worse. The big revisionist gloss overs claimed it was better. They want to ignore the period before order was restored and mob rule was is charge. How much damage happened. Normal eventually returned, but France was never again a world power. That is why there are jokes about the French military, they used to be feared.

If you wish to use some narrow metric and claim it improved and ignore other metrics ......... that's an agenda.

Any conflict is terrible while people are going it through it. Which is exactly why you don't want things to get to the point where people think it is their only recourse to justice. The French Revolution was a terrible time, but in the end France was a lot better under socialism than it was under imperialism.

I don't understand your assertion that there is some sort of correlation between how much the army is feared and the quality of life in a country. I love France and have spent a lot of time there. They seem to have their priorities right.

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.

They will be building guillotines, Clyde. History tells us exactly what happens when the gap between rich and poor gets too big. It wass one of the concerns of your President Teddy Roosevelt, which is why he made such efforts to break up monopolies.

Thats a good point ES. And that lesson applys to just about every country on the planet who has had such a divide between rich and poor. Past and or present.

Always considered Teddy Roosevelt, to be among our top three President's. Just below Lincoln and his cousin FDR.

I think it is a barbaric, primitive reaction that we must fight against to show we are better than those who can kill remorselessly.


A mother, defending her children, is a primitive reaction. I wouldn't call it barbaric tho. We will always have those primitive reactions, it's part of our nature. I think every mother with her heart in the right place would do the same as I.

I dont Think there are many mothers in this thread Julie
Many fathers though.


Oh, there are a few mothers here. I have children and grandchildren and I think Julie is wrong about other mothers. Perhaps that urge to kill might exist for a few seconds but I hope I would never kill anyone.

I really hope not.

Should I cancel your visit?

*gulp*

I also find the existence of PTSD from soldiers returning from war one of the most hopeful aspects of humanity.

This is true. People have to be programmed to kill. It is not as natural as some people think. Although infanticide is more common than seems to be acknowledged. I am surprised that Gary has not bought up how in nature mothers who are stressed or unable to feed their young often kill them.

I have some news on My mobile home, the park wants to give Me back full title to the place and I don't have to pay back the $6,500.00 that I was given in exchange for the title back in 2011, in addition the park's General Manager says that they will fix the gas heater and My rent will go down to $215.00 a month(space rent here) from the present $320.00 a month rent and I'd be an owner again, this means if I were to do this, I'd then have to find someone to buy the place in the park, that's if the park is still here in about 4 years, also no matter what they are going to fix the gas heater. The park is getting out of renting mobile homes I'm told. I wasn't sure about where to post this.

A bit of good news for you there, Vic.

With less than two weeks to go before the Sept. 18 vote, the poll puts the "Yes" to independence campaign on 51 percent, with the unionists on 49 percent, overturning a 22-point lead for the unionist campaign in just a month, the Sunday Times said.
http://news.stv.tv/scotland-decides/291077-indyref-daily-stephen-daisley-on-independence-referendum-campaign
11 days and 4 hours to go :)

"If Scots voted to leave the United Kingdom, Prime Minister David Cameron would face calls to resign ahead of a national election in May 2015 while the opposition Labor party's chances of gaining a majority could be scuppered if it lost its Scottish lawmakers."

What's it got to reflect on him? It's always been made plain that this is between the Yes and No parties in Scotland, not between Scotland and England.
Same reason Cameron (rightly) refused to travel to Scotland to debate independence with Salmond, it's not his to debate.

P.S. They spelt Labour wrong!

You don't see the connection between Scotland being governed by the worse UK government in decades and wanting to leave the union?

Blue Chicken in Trafalgar Square

There is a plinth at each of the four corners of the square. The two southern plinths carry sculptures of Henry Havelock and Charles James Napier. The northern plinths are larger than those as they were designed to have equestrian statues, and indeed the northeastern plinth has one of George IV. The history of the fourth vacant plinth in Trafalgar Square is that it was originally intended to hold an equestrian statue of William IV, but remained bare due to insufficient funds.

For over 150 years the fate of the plinth was debated; in 1999, a sequence of three contemporary artworks to be displayed on the plinth were announced. The success of this initiative led to a commission being formed to decide on a use for the plinth. Eventually that commission unanimously decided to continue using it for the temporary display of artworks.

In my view the use of the fourth plinth in this way is nothing less than a public scandal, and desecrates a British and Internationally famous landmark. I helped to host a close friend of mine in London earlier this year, and quite frankly I was embarrassed to take them there.

I think they should replace it with a Guillotine.

The Fourth Plinth Programme is the most talked about contemporary art prize in the UK. Funded by the Mayor of London, the programme invites world class artists to make "astonishing" new works for the centre of the capital city

Ah well there we go, "Bonkers Boris" at it again. World Class artists??? A blue plastic chicken is world class art??? "astonishing" yes it is, because they are allowed to get away with it! I know who is taking this piss out of whom, and I suspect most of the public do as well.

There are far too many avant garde artists in this world whose only aim is to shock and be controversial. They haven't got a shred of real art in their little toes. Yet they make a living from it. It's high time the public fought back. Yes of course the world would be a bleaker place without art, but let's have real art not all this pseudo namby pamby luvvie stuff!

Its a pretty good representation of a chicken. I'd like to see your attempt. I know I would struggle creating something that looked like a chicken.

Will you post a picture of your chicken sculpture so I can compare your skills with those of the person with no shred of real art in their toes. You being the expert and all.

Esme lost weight on my cooking!!! That is horrible!!!!!

We simply must try again...

I am pretty sure that Mr.99 is planning another trip to Hotel Korpela. If I'm lucky he might bring me with him. I haven't asked him if he gained weight, but at the gym this morning he was explaining that the extra belly fat is there to help with his workout as extra resistance weight.

I went back to the gym this morning for the first time in two weeks. It was hard.

I did weigh myself and for reasons I can't explain due to the 24 hour a day food and alcohol binge that was my trip to San Francisco, I appear to have actually lost two pounds. I am wondering if due to food overload my internal organs just shut down in disgust and refused to digest any more.

yes i can but not the latest posts for some reason even some of your pic i can still see just not the last few for some reason

People have been linking to images on sites that do not like hotlinking. That's all. You can either rehost the images somewhere else such as photobucket or imgur, or just post a link to them rather than embedding the image.

Celebgate: it's not the internet we need to fix but men's squalid behaviour

"There is abundant evidence that large numbers of people behave appallingly when they are online. The degree of verbal aggression and incivility in much online discourse is shocking. It's also misogynistic to an extraordinary degree, as any woman who has a prominent profile in cyberspace will tell you."

Thank you friends. I'm feeling a bit old and decrepid but I'll probably last a few more years and even though I am all alone I'm feeling very happy.

Happy birthday old friend!

Well that's the thing, no one in My family has diabetes, not even in My late brothers family(or even in My ancestry, My great grandpa lived until He was 94), which is really all the family I have outside of 3 aging older cousins.

Then I'm doing ok, since I don't take in a lot of calories, My bread is 50 a slice instead of 200+ a slice($0.99 a loaf), peanut butter is 180 instead of 200+ and the turkey bologna is 70 a slice and I normally have BF lite mayo at 15 a serving, but I'm almost out of that for the moment, so I do without, My nephew won't go without mayo on a sandwich.

Just be aware that if you are eating white bread the starch is broken down into sugar during digestion. In fact digestion starts in the mouth as saliva contains the enzyme amylase which begins to break down your food as you chew. That is why white bread can taste sweet. If possible eat whole wheat or whole grain bread.
