Wealth by itself doesn't make one either bad or good; it's what you do to maintain and increase it and what you do with it.

Right. Just like the Solyndra group who shoveled money over to the Magic Negro.

In the 70's the acid rain was gonna wipe out our water supplies and the rain forests.
When that didn't pan out for them it was the coming ice age.
Then they pivoted to global warming when the ice age was a wash.
Climate change,climate disruption and whatever other scams they try to run to regulate and tax Americans on what boils down to junk science.

"Climate with a tax." Will have to remember that one.

The Wisdom of Crowds is BS. When the Roman audience majority gives a Thumbs-Down to any particular Gladiator's opponent, sonic is right there with them as an unthinking corpuscle inside of an unthinking animal.

If sonic was in Rome doing as Romans do, he'd believe that slavery was a necessary part of Roman(and Greek) life because the majority believes it to be their right.

To him, sonic, everything in Life is based on crowd approval - unless, of course, it comes from a Conservative majority.

China and Russia ink $400 billion gas deal
China and Russia signed off on a huge gas deal worth as much as $400 billion over 30 years. The deal has been in talks for about a decade, but experts see the timing of the final agreement as a move by Russia to avoid sanctions from the West. VPC

BEIJING — China and Russia signed off on a huge gas deal worth as much as $400 billion Wednesday that heralds a pivot east for Russian business amid ongoing tensions with the West over Ukraine, though few details of the deal were made public.
The 30-year gas-export contract, seen as a move by Russian President Vladimir Putin to aggressively shift the country's commercial interests east amid mounting sanctions from the United States and Europe, was signed as the Russian leader has enjoyed a warm welcome in China, where the two countries have inked a raft of agreements during his ongoing, two-day visit.
The price China is paying for Russia's gas was not disclosed but the value of the agreement is thought to be somewhere near $400 billion. The deal, which will see Gazprom gas flow to China from a pipeline in Siberia, was confirmed by China's state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation.
The eleventh-hour deal represents "good news for both countries," said Shi Yinhong, an international relations expert at People's University of China, in Beijing. "The political requirements on both sides are so powerful they can overcome the concerns on price," he said. "This is a political action by both sides."
Talks for the deal had been going on for more than a decade and will see Russia export up to 38 billion cubic meters of gas per year, for 30 years, starting in 2018. The export agreement is significant because it will permit Russia to diversify the market for its gas away from Europe, which has threatened sanctions over Russia's incursion into Ukraine.
China's neutrality over Ukraine has begun "tilting" toward Russia, said Shi, but this deal will not fundamentally change a relationship he called "a convenient coalition, not an alliance." The agreement is an example of "selective cooperation, due to the situation in Eastern Europe, the Western Pacific and East Asia at this period," but on some issues their concerns remain incompatible, he said.
"It's a demonstration of the fact that Russia always has and always will have other options to develop relations elsewhere. The threat of isolation coming from the West will not be complete," said Sergei Utkin, political expert at the Russian Academy of Sciences.
And the biggest political vacuum today resides smack dab between those two jackass ears stuck to Magic Negro's head.

Yeah, that article really doesn't help prove Bush could have done anything about 9/11
Sonic shouldn't read the liberal squawking points to learn history.

The 9/11 Commission Report is easy to find.

He might actually learn what really happened.

And no one could have possibly known the day, time or targets even if bin Laden had sent Bush a memo the attack was "imminent" personally.

'Robert Petzel resigned last week as the top health official for the Department of Veterans Affairs, just one day after testifying before a Senate committee that he knew VA health clinics were using inappropriate scheduling practices as early as 2010.'
'The message summarized at least 17 tactics that VA hospitals were known to have used to hide treatment delays and give the impression they were meeting the department’s goal of seeing patients within 14 to 30 days'
Robert Petzel's head must be spinning in confusion. After all, he read and memorized the Magic Negro Playbook - and this is what happens?

He must have missed something. Maybe he didn't buy off enough politicians or hospital board members?

you still haven't explained why Bush needed an excuse to attack Iraq. like i said....

Bush decided to remove Saddam 'on day one'

Former aide says US president made up his mind to go to war with Iraq long before 9/11, then ordered his staff to find an excuse

Did you happen to hear a more detailed presentation of the recent news headlines about the pending doom of the Western Antarctic glacial collapse? It's hilarious.
I recently caught an NPR "Science" presentation about this. The lead author of this "study" said that the glacial collapse is a certainty very soon. The host asked "how soon?" and he replied "Anywhere from 200 years to 1,000 years". I began snickering. "Is this wide temporal disparity a reflection of the accuracy of your study, azzhole?", I thought.
Further into the presentation, the author said "Our computer model shows us that..." and I went "Bingo!"
Any amount of variables above maybe 4 or 5 makes computer modeling a Casino full of gambles. These Climate Models contain perhaps hundreds or even thousands - not to mention those that lead us to understand that we don't know what we don't know.
This Circus Of Idiots needs a bigger Round-Top.
Yeah, that was a big headline the other day Thought it was going to happen tomorrow the way it was written.

According to one of the "two teams of scientists" who did a "pair of tests" as reported in the National Geographic: "If the whole glacier system melts, it would raise global sea levels about 24 inches. The process will take a while, roughly 200 to 900 years depending on how fast temperatures rise and how much snow falls in the area."

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/...

Of course, it was only "two teams of scientists" who did a "pair of studies" predicting doomsday in possibly 2 to 9 centuries...depending.

So how much damage can a rise of only 24 inches do? Having to wade in two feet of extra water at the beach? Moving the beach chairs back a few more feet? What?

Guess he got tired of the UN picking their noses all those years Saddam was picking his and flicking his boogers at them after 9/11?

Terrorists didn't fly jet airliners into the UN either. Saddam was another kind of terrorist who would have gassed them all if given the opportunity.

Just a guess, mind you.
