The US Will Break Its Teeth On Iran
By Eric Margolis
Maybe the president believes he’s won a great victory over the wicked Syrians by lobbing cruise missiles at one of their underused air bases. Maybe Trump believes that he’s scared the evil Russians and the too big for their sampans Chinese into obedience.
His 22,000 lb MOAB terror bomb on Afghanistan should keep those pesky Taliban quiet for a while even though the Pentagon claimed the intended target was a group- Khorosan – that may not actually exist.
Those major malefactors, the crazy North Koreans, could be about to feel America’s full military might if they so much as twitch.
This ^^^. Whatever the settlement amount might be for, it is surely orders of magnitude greater than what they would have had to pay in order to induce someone (Dao or anyone else) to voluntarily give up a seat, if they had only been willing to "up the ante" some more instead of deciding to go to the "involuntary" phase of passenger selection. (And this is not even considering the cost of the huge PR "black eye" they've given themselves.)
Uh huh, and I am not defending that. However, if someone started character assassinating you and taking what you said out of context, I would be right here defending you as well.
No man/woman is perfect but anyone paying attention knows what is really transpiring here.
Philippians 2:5-8 (KJV)
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
How about you cut the spending too?
The 'more conservative' would cover Trump's unapologetically deficit/spend happy ass.
It's surprising yet unsurprising that the so called conservatives can't pinch pennies when the rubber hits the road.
ETA: Or is unsurprising yet surprising?
Or are they all whores who ought get real goddamn jobs?
SPOKANE, Wash. -- Spokane Police are honing in on a man they suspect of slapping women on their back sides along the Centennial trail.
They started getting reports about it this weekend and now more than a half dozen people have come forward. Police said runners, walkers and anyone who uses this trail should feel safe and comfortable.
Investigators are still interviewing victims and collecting any video evidence they can find. Spokane Police said they are taking this case seriously. Officials said this is assault with a sexual motivation, which is a gross misdemeanor. They hope to make an arrest this week.
"People should be able to walk down the Centennial trail, at Gonzaga Campus or wherever and not be assaulted," said Spokane Police Public Information Officer Shane Phillips.
Police are reminding people to always be aware of your surroundings when you are out and about.
Then don't volunteer to take the cash being offered to take a later flight the few times that even becomes an issue.
if the price is right, they will find volunteers who can wait and are not desperate for their next peyote fix.
They've been used for thousands of years, throughout almost all of human history.
How many fiat currencies can say the same?
How many were deliberately undermined and killed by governements in favor of fiat, rather than being fairly outcompeted by fiat on their merits?
I had ants once and they tasted like pepper. Not a fan of bug grub.
Yeah, the frogs are getting cranked up around here. We have lots of 'em, too. I even had one living in a potted plant in my garage for awhile. I think that was a toad.
I refuse to upgrade my minivan because of my Ron Paul stickers. <---That's worth 5 stars, I drive a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager.:(
I try to live by example. Homeschooling, avoiding paying taxes whenever possible, planning for the collapse...
I've donated money to Ron Paul, RPI (Christmas donations in the names of my Democrat in-laws:)), Mises Institute.
Attended Ron Paul rallies and Mises conferences. I met Lew Rockwell at Mises, we're BFF's now.:cool:
Most importantly, I talk to people about liberty.:)
