Ah so that's all the people sending me personalised messages from the white house. I thought they made the names up.
Pondering that, distracts frm the Obama-care issue however.
Naming it so gets more negative responses than naming it 'health-care act'.
Cola used to give a kick, now it will give people sulfites, diabetes, overweight and dementia!
When they switched the recipe productivity world-wide took a nose-dive. Up the anti-depressants and sedatives.
No wonder by the way that army-suicide numbers are so high; as far as i know they also get uppers and downers.
So on return you have addicted people that do not even know it!
(As in the Vietnam years.)
W. 7 is fine, 8 horrific and C 64 to be cherished.
rabbee: just what is any health care act, from the enemies of HaShem G-D worth to any of you. the devil can't protect its selves from the pestilence, plague and famine all commanded by G-D.

something tells me, this kind of hard core idolatry. is not good, for your health at all. but we can always throw, more idolatry at it to not fix it trading for some other pestilence, plague, or famine.

That logic is misleading.
Back here in Asia and especially in India where marriage is considered a sacred bond and where divorce, family discord and infidelity are rare phenomena, kids get all the support and love from both parents and from grandparents and from aunts and from uncles and from others and yet in most cases the kids turn out selfish, exploitative, emotionally insecure, psychologically unsound, jealous of those better than them, hard-hearted, indifferent to the suffering of the gave nots, aggressive, unhappy, mental slaves of the West, superstitious, sex perverts, ill-mannered, egotistic, venal and corrupt and it is usually seen that they don't hesitate using criminal methods to get ahead in life.
So, in what way has parental togetherness and family support helped these kids who live with both biological parents become better human beings when on the contrary they turn out, in many ways, degraded individuals no better than the lower beasts?
rabbee: not asia's turn, in the barrel again yet? don't ever complain that you are not getting, your fair share of hell and death.

At a time when Malthusian worries are resurgent and people fear the
consequences for an overcrowded planet, the decline in fertility is surprising and
somewhat reassuring. It means that worries about a population explosion are
themselves being exploded—and it carries a lesson about how to solve the
problems of climate change.
Worth a bundle
Today's fall in fertility is both very large and very fast. Poor countries are racing
through the same demographic transition as rich ones, starting at an earlier stage
of development and moving more quickly. The transition from a rate of five to that
of two, which took 130 years to happen in Britain—from 1800 to 1930—took just
20 years—from 1965 to 1985—in South Korea. Mothers in developing countries
today can expect to have three children. Their mothers had six. In some countries
the speed of decline in the fertility rate has been astonishing. In Iran, it dropped
from seven in 1984 to 1.9 in 2006—and to just 1.5 in Tehran. That is about as
fast as social change can happen.
Falling fertility in poor and middle-income societies is a boon in and of itself. It
means that, for the first time, the majority of mothers are having the number of
children they want, which seems to be—as best one can judge—two.(China is an
exception: its fall in fertility has been coerced.)

You know the FUNNIEST part of that article (I just read the whole piece)??

It recognizes that unbridled population growth is terrible for the environment. And at the end, the solution is MORE government.

LOLOL

You won the argument but just lost the debate.

to quote:
".....What's more, the parts of the world where populations are growing fastest are also those most vulnerable to climate change, and a rising population will exacerbate the consequences of global warming—water shortages, mass migration, declining food yields....

....Mankind needs to develop more and cheaper technologies that can enable people to enjoy the fruits of economic growth without destroying the planet's natural capital. That's not going to happen unless governments both use carbon pricing and other policies to encourage investment in those technologies and constrain the damage that economic development does to biodiversity.

Falling fertility may be making poor people's lives better, but it cannot save the Earth. That lies in our own hands..."

Transparent rule of law government at work.

Company Admits New ‘Smart’ Street Lights Can Analyze Voices, Track
People
To aid Homeland Security in “protecting its citizens”
Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
November 11, 2013
The company behind a new ‘smart’ street lighting system which is being rolled out in major cities like Las Vegas
admits that the technology has the capability of analyzing voices and tracking people, features that will aid the
Department of Homeland Security in “protecting its citizens.”
We first reported on Intellistreets bragging of its product’s “homeland security” applications back in 2011 , with the
backlash from privacy advocates causing the company to remove a promotional video from YouTube. The video was
later restored (see above), although comments were disabled.
However, Illuminating Concepts, the company behind Intellistreets, seems to be more comfortable in acknowledging
the “security” aspects of its devices now that it has secured numerous lucrative government contracts to supply street
lighting in several major cities.
A page on the Intellistreets website which highlights “benefits and applications” features a section on security wherein
it is admitted that the hi-tech system includes “voice stress analyzers,” amongst several other sophisticated sensors that
“assist DHS in protecting its citizens and natural resources.”
The ability to record street conversations is merely one special feature of the Intellistreets lighting system, which is
linked back to a central data hub via a ubiquitous wi-fi connection. The ‘smart’ street lights can also act as
surveillance cameras, make loudspeaker security announcements (See Something, Say Something), as well as track
“RFID equipped staff,” which could be any of us given the increasing amount of clothing and products which are RFID
tagged.
The company’s website highlights how the system is now being installed in areas of Las Vegas, Chicago, Detroit,
Auburn Hills, Asbury Park, and at stadiums like the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
As we reported on Sunday, the Las Vegas Public Works Department has begun testing the devices although they denied
they would be used for surveillance, at least for the time being.
Authorities in New York City also recently announced that they would be replacing the city’s 250,000 street lights with
new LEDs by 2017, although it is not known how many of these if any will be provided by Intellistreets.
As we reported earlier, Intellistreets are just one component of a huge network of microphones embedded in
everything from games consoles to gunshot detectors that are beginning to blanket our streets and dominate our home
life.
A 2012 New York Times report on ShotSpotter audio sensors, which are installed in at least 70 major US cities,
acknowledged that they can and have been used to record conversations on the street.
The next level of NSA snooping, which will rely on systems like Intellistreets to record people’s conversations and
detect antagonism or political extremism, will make the recent revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden pale in
comparison, and represents the potential for a ubiquitous wiretapping system that outstrips George Orwell’s worst
nightmare.

Hey Retard,

Supported by the growing body of objective evidence, most would agree that only retards like COR keep supporting the conjecture that insentient matter gives rise to sentience.

COR = Sub-human type.

TED KACZYNSKI, MATH & MK ULTRA:

1) Obsession with mathematics upset the mental balance of Ted Kaczynski and turned him against humanity in later years.

2) The CIA further damaged his mental balance by turning him into a mind control slave by using him as a test subject in the highly controversial MK Ultra program. Most mind control slaves are used as assassins by their controllers to create panic among the common public.

3) Most of those who obsess with mathematics lose their mental balance after some time or if not this they could turn cold, calculating, insensitive and rigid after over-exposure to mathematics. I have seen this happening all too often.

4) The surface phenomenon of nature and being can be expressed mathematically but the deeper aspects of nature/being exceed the scope of mathematical rigidity.

HOMOSEXUALITY & EVOLUTION:

1) I often wonder whether homosexuality has any evolutionary advantage.

2) What I see is that many, if not a majority, of the most creative inventors, scientists, litterateurs and artists were/are gay. I also see that many if not most homosexuals suffer great mental anxiety.

3) The common notion of fertility in the minds of the common herd refers to a man who's fathered many kids (not online but in real life - LOL), whereas most homosexuals do not procreate.

4) What accounts for a higher incidence of genius and mental disturbance in homosexuals?

5) I can understand that when a new phenomenon is about to manifest in a system there occurs a period of instability that breaks down the old paradigm for a time until the old is replaced by the new aspect.

6) For biologists, development is a fundamental property of life. According to the new systemic understanding of life, every living system occasionally encounters points of instability where there is either a breakdown or, more frequently, a spontaneous emergence of new forms of order. This spontaneous emergence of novelty is one of the hallmarks of life. It has been recognized as the dynamic origin of development, learning, and evolution. In other words, creativity — the generation of new forms — is a key property of all living systems. This means that all living systems develop; life continually reaches out to create novelty.

7) The biological concept of development implies a sense of multi-faceted unfolding; of living organisms, ecosystems, or human communities reaching their maximum potential.

8) The experiences in the exacting discipline of the Integral Yoga has revealed to me the possibility of Nature throwing up higher degrees of consciousness in matter via phases of instability that lasts until the new range of consciousness in matter emerges and stabilizes and becomes a novel part of the existing system provided the system survives the shaking up that manifests as instability during the process of the new emergence.

9) The whole history of Nature reveals a continuous march towards manifesting higher and more radical aspects of intelligence and form.

10) Where sentient beings, especially where the mental race of beings which is the human race is concerned, Nature is moving towards an apogee of consciousness that could eventuality turn out asexual and supramental through various intermediate phases - this mechanism is becoming increasingly visible logically speaking and based on the evolutionary mechanism of human progress over the ages in sheer intellectual and biological terms.

11) It is said that the Y chromosome is deteriorating but if the Y chromosome loses its genetic capacities would it imply the asexualization of the male species? Will this be accompanied by a novel shift in consciousness? Will this radical shift in consciousness create an appropriate form for itself? How would the female X chromosome and phenotype and degree of consciousness be impacted by this transformation in males?

12) Will the human species survive this period of instability and break into a higher rhythm with the appearance of a radical consciousness that's supported by an appropriate physical form - a movement seen in increasing behavioral dysfunction, growing global unrest, rapid globalization, shattering of religious teachings that belongs to a perverse past, breakdown in morality, outbursts of new forms of creativity and changing genotypes? Does the transition from sexuality to asexuality first manifest as homosexuality and genius that we see in many gay men and in lesbians? What about heterosexual people? Does the advent of cloning technology in recent years support this hypothesis of Nature's intention of bringing forth an asexual species with heightened sensitivity and superior intellectual faculties and non-attraction to opposite gender thereby implying non-procreation via sexual methods?

With over a Billion people, most of which live in abject poverty, India could do with a lot MORE homosexuality.

While euthanasia and forced abortion are the methods most considered by overpopulation wags to deal with the issue -- these solutions are cruel, immoral and often applied along racial or ethnic lines.

"Going gay", on the other hand, deals with the issue in a much more humane manner. With the added benefit of finally getting some decent musical theatre to replace all that Bollywood nonsense.

Do your part by sending all your unwanted "Will and Grace" DVDs to India c/o this address.
