Socialists and Fascists Have Always Been Kissing Cousins by useless_aether in Freedom

[–]Tom_Bombadil 5 insightful - 1 funny5 insightful - 0 funny6 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

If Socialists and Fascists are kissing cousins, then Capitalists and Fascists are newlywed siblings who don't mind fornicating in public.

 

Socialism is (supposed to be) a bottom-up democratic approach to industrial production, which is antithetical to top-down nature of fascism and capitalism.
 

It's easy to overlook the fact that Dubya's grandfather Prescott Bush (and Henry Ford, and many other American capitalists) literally bankrolled the Nazis war industry.

I'm guessing that Clinton still has 571 pledged super-delegates, so she's well positioned to sabotage democracy for the U.S. again.

What about the Russian hacking!? The Russians made John Podesta type pedophile e-mails, and purchase pedophile art.
The Russians then murdered Seth Rich for giving the DNC e-mails to Wikileaks.

Russia!

You could have an outfit with sharp buttons, and you make new button holes each time.
It would be interesting to evaluate whether the material is experiencing elastic deformation, so it will continue to recover. As opposed to a partial plastic deformation, which will eventually fatigue the bonds and recover less and less.

Wow. A material that heals when rubbed? Sounds like a future condom candidate.

Ted Was Right, Wasn't He? by useless_aether in quotes

[–]Tom_Bombadil 4 insightful - 1 funny4 insightful - 0 funny5 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Ted was a victim of MK Ultra experiments, so he's understandably opposed to the doctrinal system.

JP is largely misunderstood. He makes statements that appear incendiary but have significant merit if considered carefully. The statements are generally gender and social rights/justice issues. He loses people when they ask him if he thinks a given situation is ok, and he generally responds, "I don't know", because no one has adequately researched the specifics of the topic being discussed (plus pinpointing causality in social sciences is dubious, at best). Public opinion on most social topics is largely based on unfounded social norms and sociological assumptions. This is the general thesis of 95% of his arguments.

For example: If women wear makeup at work, can that create an unintended/unforseen sexual/social message???

Imagine if women quit wearing makeup to work, or all men started wearing makeup, etc. Makeup or not, the workplace social environment will be impacted. The status quo is currently affecting society in ways that are not fully understood.

Then there's the non-gender pronoun debate, which is a SJW hot button issue that some use to attack him. The right supports him as, an enemy of my enemy; he's Canadian though and his views are to the left of most of theirs. You do have to listen carefully, because he doesn't state his personal views very often.

Liquid water molecules absorb lighter in the microwave bandwidth, which excites the water molecules as their energy is increased. Most molecules are functionally transparent to microwaves, so they are unaffected.

However, there's no way of knowing for sure whether some rare (but crucial) molecules in in our nervous system or endocrine system, and inadvertantly wreck millions of developing children.

5G technology should be rigerously beta tested for a decade on the households of executives at Qualcom and other major Telecoms. Then we can discuss rolling it out to the public.

Your butt dust words are confusing. Can summarize what's being said at Voat, in contrast to your assessment? Higher frequency = higher photon energy, which is generally associated with higher risk of unforeseen consequences.

 

I'm on the fence about the severity of 5G risks. However, I am in favor of making the telecoms deliver on their promise of delivering 1 Gbps using 4G frequencies. The existing bandwidths should be optimized; prior to rolling out 5G. 5G is sure to be a battery killer, and I don't know of any common applications that require more than 1 Gbps of data to function efficiently.

 

4G works just fine, so the state should not force communities to use 5G if they're opposed to it.

Your theory has merit. It would be very convenient for TPTB to discredit conspiracy/evidence theorists by associating them with antisemitic statements.

Fortunately, I think that the antisemitism card has been overused, and has generally been discredited. Most people understand the obvious distinction between the Israeli state, and Jewish ethnicity.

That is a funny idea, and i'm sure Mel Brooks would make it hilarious.

Do you have any movie title suggestions? "Broke Back Minneapolis" is all I can think of.
