@mindpilot To my knowledge, the Saudis do not have their own flight schools. They pay other people for those. As for as their Air Force pilots are concerned, they’ve been training at American bases on American soil since at least the 1970s.

His entire schtick is founded on a worldview that is maintained through deceitful propaganda. When I became aware of that, he was no longer funny to me. Humor doesn’t work without a common view of the subject matter. Now I see him as a propagandist, in service to the political establishment.

@mindpilot Why now? Why this? I speculate it was two things. First, Biden himself made it clear he was in favor of impeachment. He was probably just pissed off at Trump and didn’t think about how it would expose his own corruption, but then again Joe’s never been the brightest bulb in the ceiling. He’s also a rich, arrogant SOB.
Second, Pelosi…[Read more]
Yes indeed. Which rights are the more important? One’s right to privacy while walking is indeed important but might become less important if a surveillance drone is following a nearby car-jacker hell bent on running innocent pedestrians over.
I get this idea of priorities. What I do not get is Conservetive priorities.

Bernie will purge The Family and all their religious cohorts. None will have access to his White House. I wouldn’t be surprised if that idiotic (not so innocent) Prayer Breakfast where all our elected officials go to VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION, is banned by Bernie. Now that we know the truth about The Family and that Prayer Breakfast,…[Read more]
thanks for the reference, @mindpilot

@mindpilot You’re right, that’s how it was. If I reported it to school authorities, that made me a wimp, a tattletale, and a snitch. My parents would talk to the other kids’ parents, but that only made it worse, so I learned to stay silent.
I was lucky on two counts. One, my parents had at least as much social status as the parents of any of the…[Read more]
“I also get the sense that you were one of those lucky kids who were never bullied since you see my description as a caricature. “Your face got in the way of my fist” is literally something a bully will say.”

Everything reproduces its kind. Bullies create bullies, hate creates hate.
Hitting a bully doesn’t generally produce understanding, particularly when the bully is a child. It just teaches children that violence is the way to solve problems, or that aggrandizing power is the way to solve problems, that bigger walls are the way to s…[Read more]

@mindpilot That is the attitude Over There; like it helped Hillary any. Insulting people usually isn’t the most effective way of persuading them to vote for one’s chosen candidate, but they don’t seem to understand that.
What I don’t understand is why they don’t see that.

You can also find Carrageenan in many “low fat” and especially “non-dairy” foods. I even found it in a delicious looking granola-type cereal, which I had to give away, after I brought it home from the store.
