1  Economy / Economics / Minimum wage. on: August 21, 2015, 04:46:43 PM
What are your thoughts about the minimum wage? Is it a job killer or a way of ensuring companies pay their workers fair wages and what do you think about its effects on employment?
2  Other / Politics & Society / Madness! The Iranians Get to Self Inspect in Secret Side Deal on: August 20, 2015, 04:41:20 PM
I'm sorry, but I do not believe even the Democrats are stupid and partisan enough to vote for the obamaBomb deal when they find out that the secret side deals about verification of the Nuclear deal has the IAEA letting Iran inspect itself!!!

VIENNA (AP) — Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a site it has been accused of using to develop nuclear arms, operating under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press.

Not even comedy writers would consider this sort of idiocy funny....Yet the Regime does. No wonder they kept the side deals secret.
3  Other / Politics & Society / Farrakhan calls for 10,000 volunteers to kill whites on: August 07, 2015, 06:44:38 PM
In the sermon at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Farrakhan said he was looking for "10,000 in the midst of the million ... 10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny" to retaliate against white Americans because of their alleged oppression of black people.

Farrakhan said the Quran calls for retaliation when "slaves" are oppressed.

"Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breath of those whose children have been slain. So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling," Farrakhan said.

4  Other / Politics & Society / What US Army Can Learn From Ukraine on: August 05, 2015, 05:37:09 PM
There is an interesting article from defense.com (hopefully not Putin's agent)

http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/policy-budget/warfare/2015/08/02/us-army-ukraine-russia-electronic-warfare/30913397/

"Our soldiers are doing the training with the Ukrainians and we've learned a lot from the Ukrainians," said Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges. "A third of the [Ukrainian] soldiers have served in the ... combat zone, and no Americans have been under Russian artillery or rocket fire..."

Which actually means that US troops can only finish the already disorganised troops who were bombed from above and have never been in a confrontation with an organised rival, who is willing to fight and possesses artillery, which made the most impact in the WW2. If we imagine that american soldiers are put against russian army or even ISIS or any other army which has at least old soviet artillery systems - it is not trained for the war and exposed for defeat.
This is why the americans are not sending the troops against ISIS I think. Not because they don't want to. But because they would fail without the air support.

Russia maintains an ability to destroy command-and-control networks by jamming radio communications, radars and GPS signals, according to Laurie Buckhout, former chief of the US Army's electronic warfare division, now CEO of the Corvus Group. In contrast with the US, Russia has large units dedicated to electronic warfare, known as EW, which it dedicates to ground electronic attack, jamming communications, radar and command-and-control nets...

..."Our biggest problem is we have not fought in a comms-degraded environment for decades, so we don't know how to do it," Buckhout said. "We lack not only tactics, techniques and procedures but the training to fight in a comms-degraded environment."

This is not about WW2, but about the future war. If an american squad is left without the communication with the commander it loses efficiency and those ugly russians have all the chances to take the communications off, which is a surprise for US Army for now.
Also, it is necessary to say that if the Donbass miners and teachers could cope and use this type of equipment - it is easy to use for anyone. In the world. Which pretty much shrinks the ability of US army to control the just conquered area and exposes their bases for planned attacks.

'Future of War Is in the Ukraine'

Forces with US Army Europe have for the last 10 weeks been training three battalions of Ukraine Ministry of the Interior troops, known as Ukraine's national guard. The second cycle of that training was paused so that troops could participate in a combined multinational exercise, underway through early August, and it will resume and conclude with the third battalion in August.
...
But Konstiantyn Liesnik, an adviser to the Defense Ministry's reform office and head of its working group for logistics and procurement, noted the US military's experience in recent years has concerned insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan, not a powerful, organized and well-equipped adversary like Russia.

"The future of war is in the Ukraine, and I think in this case our experience is very important to US personnel how war should be in this century and next century," Liesnik said.

This actually means that starting from Maidan US government used the ukrainian fascists in order to investigate what Russia would do and how it fights. Understanding that there is no chance of winning a war now US army needs to find weak spots for a fast and devastating strike which has more than 100% possibility to make a success.

The aim of US government for this and next century has been made. And it is war. Having entertained in Iraq and Afghanistan and leaving a wonderful ISIS as a result of long peacekeeping there US leadership is thinking of turning Eurasia in the same status as it has been done with arabian east. If US citizens agree with it - they should understand WHAT they do agree with and think of possible counteractions from the side of those who are being the aim of the aggressive plans.
5  Other / Politics & Society / DNC Chair can't tell difference between a Democrat and a socialist on: August 01, 2015, 04:24:08 PM
This might be the funniest video of the year.

When Chris "Tingles" Matthews asked Debbie Wasserman Schultz "What's the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?" the DNC chairwoman couldn't come up with an answer.

When you've got a socialist running for the Democratic nomination for president, what is the difference, Ms. Schultz?

Video c/o MSNBC and transcript c/o RealClearPolitics:


Chris Matthews vs. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: "What's The Difference Between A Democrat And A Socialist?" (w/ video)

On MSNBC's Hardball Thursday night, host Chris Matthews stumped DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) when he asked her what the difference is between a Democrat and a socialist.

"What is the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?" Matthews asked, leaving Wasserman Schultz at a loss for words.

"I used to think there is a big difference. What do you think it is?" Matthews tried again. "A Democrat like Hillary and a socialist like Bernie Sanders."

Wasserman Schultz again was unable to answer and instead tried to tell Matthews what the difference between a Democrat and a Republican is.

"The more important question is what is the difference between being a Democrat and being a Republican," she said.

"What's the big difference between a Democrat and a socialist?" Matthews again asked.

"You're chairman of the democratic party. Tell me the difference between you and a socialist," Matthews reminded her.

"The relevant debate that we'll be having this campaign is what's the difference between a Democrat and a Republican," Schultz said.

Schultz, however, was able to tell the difference between a Democrat and a Republican.

"The difference between a Democrat and Republican is that Democrats fight to make sure everybody has an opportunity to succeed and the Republicans are strangled by their right-wing extremists," she said.

Sure, this is funny, but in a sense it's not. It's no secret that "progressives" are socialists, and "progressives" like Barack Obama have overrun the Democratic Party.

Thanks to DWS for belaboring the point..
6  Other / Politics & Society / City of Reno replaces American Flag with Gay Flag on: July 28, 2015, 10:19:46 AM
"Sunday in Reno, Nevada, the infamous gay-pride rainbow flag replaced the American flag over City Hall. The outrage was immediate. For very good reason, many see the gay pride flag as a symbol of oppression, hate and bullying. City leaders eventually backed down claiming that the fascist gay-pride flag was supposed to fly with the American flag, not replace the American flag.

After the uproar, the gay pride flag, a provocative symbol of anti-Christian hate and oppression, was taken down Sunday evening and replaced with the American flag."

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/07/27/lgbt-rainbow-hate-flag-replaces-american-flag-over-reno-city-hall/

What the so called "city leaders" do no realize, IMO, is that ordering it to fly alongside the American flag is as repulsive to many as flying it by itself, maybe more so. What say you? Should city leaders allow gay fascists to replace the American flag with the Gay flag, and if not that, to fly it alongside the American flag?

8  Economy / Economics / Chicago launches 9% tax on internet streaming, Xbox, Netflix, cloud services on: July 25, 2015, 10:56:54 AM
Not content with making explicit attacks on Uber, AirBnB, and the “sharing economy” as a whole, Democrats have launched an even more egregious attack on something that rivals sex, alcohol, and food on Millennials’ “can’t survive without” lists: streaming entertainment. As of July 1, 2015, citizens of Chicago who enjoy their Netflix, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Prime, Xbox Live, and/or PlayStation Network subscriptions are now subject to the city’s 9 percent “Amusement Tax” for the privilege. Further, should you decide to digitally rent a movie or video game via these services, the 9 percent tax would be applied for every rental. In other words, Chicago now taxes its citizens 9 percent on their $99 annual Amazon Prime subscription because of its instant video/music service, plus 9 percent for each $3.99 digital rental through the same service. The same applies for rentals and music services offered directly from Microsoft and Sony. Fans of Sony’s PlayStation Network ecosystem are hit hardest: a 9 percent tax each on their PlayStation Plus subscription, PlayStation Music, PlayStation Now (videogame streaming), and Sony’s recently introduced PlayStation Vue live-TV service. Throw in other rental/subscription services such as Hulu, Gamefly, Google Play, HBO Go, iTunes, and Vudu, and you get a sense of the sheer breadth of this tax on Chicago consumers’ digital lives.

On one hand liberals are saying making the minimum wage isn't a livable wage, on the other hand how can it be livable when what it buys is taxed to the hilt? This 9% tax will hit families where their only or primary source of entertainment is internet based. This tax also raises the cost of these internet services far more than the rate of inflation and far more than most people can expect to get in a raise.

How can liberals push for subsidies for poor people but then tax them when they use what's subsidized - the internet.
9  Other / Politics & Society / More black babies aborted than born in New York City on: July 22, 2015, 04:42:37 PM
July 21, 2015
By Kyle Olson



Abortions among the “non-Hispanic black” demographic were by far the highest among any racial group, according to a chart on page 25 of the report:



Many lay the guilt at the feet of Planned Parenthood.

“Planned Parenthood is an organization with racist roots in their founder Margaret Sanger,” Hawaii State Rep. Bob McDermott tells EAGnews. “They continue to target poor minorities – to wit, more black babies were aborted in New York City than born last year.

“They claim to be providers of reproductive health care. I’m not sure how the little babies whose parts are being sold would feel about that statement,” he says, referring to the undercover videos that have been published.

Looks like the Planned Parenthood original mission statement is coming to fruition. Great profit potential too I bet. All those little black baby organs they can sell.

SHOCK: More black babies aborted than born in New York City

Black lives matter? Apparently not in New York City.

A “Pregnancy Outcomes” report from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reveals in 2013, more black babies were aborted than born in the city.

A chart on page 7 shows 24,108 “non-Hispanic black” babies were born while 29,007 faced “induced terminations” — or abortions.

A Florida gun shop owner has declared his business a “Muslim-free zone” after last week’s shooting rampage in Tennessee that left four Marines and a Navy sailor dead.

“I have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of all patriots in my community, and so effective immediately, I’m declaring Florida Gun Supply as a Muslim-free zone,” Andy Hallinan said in a video posted to his Inverness, Fla., gun shop’s Facebook page Saturday. “I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”

Ok, this is going to get interesting. Obama & Co. don't want people to have guns, but now that a gun dealer won't sell guns to people he feels would create a threat will Obama make this into a deal similar to not selling someone a wedding cake? Does Obama defend gun ownership? I'm saying he does.
11  Other / Politics & Society / UN Security Council endorses Iran nuclear deal on: July 21, 2015, 05:12:49 PM
The UN Security Council has unanimously endorsed the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers agreed last week.

The resolution, co-sponsored by all 15 members, authorises the lifting of sanctions in return for Iran curbing sensitive nuclear activities.

But it also provides a mechanism for UN sanctions to "snap back" if Iran fails to comply with its obligations.

No further action is required for 90 days, to give the US Congress time to consider whether to give its approval.

Obama, with both hands tied behind his back, head butts the GOP out of the ring.

UN Security Council has endorsed the Iran deal which now renders the decision of USA congress as irrelevant because trade with Iran is now permissible.

This will be a big boost for world trade, although USA is not likely to gain from the trade boost because of residual hostility of Iran to USA.

The big gain Obama received form this was to have the GOP-led Congress rendered impotent consequent to UNSC declaration.

Obama smashes GOP out of the ring again.

The study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research on Thursday found that the bones not only healed quicker, but were also stronger and more resilient against a repeated fracture, meaning the bones treated with marijuana were much less likely to break again.

13  Other / Politics & Society / Bakery That Refused to Make Cake for Lesbian Couple Raises Record-Breaking Donat on: July 19, 2015, 09:11:29 AM
A fund set up for Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, had raised $372,000 by Friday afternoon. The couple shut down the Gresham bakery in 2013 amid backlash over their decision not to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple because, they said, it was against their Christian beliefs.

Earlier this month, the bakery owners were ordered to pay a total of $135,000 in damages to the couple "for emotional and mental suffering resulting from the denial of service," according to court documents from the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries.

The donations made on the site Continue To Give surpassed the goal of the fund by $222,000, and has raised the most money of any personal fundraiser on the site to date, Continue to Give founder Jesse Wellhoefer said.

I can only hope Aaron and Melissa Klein file suit against the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries for violating their 1st Amendment and Civil Rights under the Civil Rights Act.

Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Pub.L. 88–352, 78 Stat. 241, enacted July 2, 1964) is a landmark piece of civil rights legislation in the United States[5] that outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Religion and religious practice is a protected class by not only the First Amendment to the Constitution as an right but also Codified in the Civil Rights Act. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries trampled those rights with their decision and should be made to pay for their religious discrimination. I would welcome this one heading for the SCOUTS and would be willing to donate as much as I can to get it there.


14  Other / Politics & Society / Obama Wishes Muslims Happy Ramadan on Day of Tennessee Shooting on: July 18, 2015, 05:19:27 AM
"Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr," the statement reads. "As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday."

Obama also uses the opportunity to ask Americans to respect people of all faiths.

"As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs," the statement reads. "This past year New York City Public Schools announced adding Eid to their official school calendars alongside Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays — an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation."

The statement closes by saying, "Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!"

On Thursday, 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez of Hixon, Tenn. is alleged to have shot at two military offices in Chattanooga — a recruiting center and a Navy reserve center. Four Marines were killed at the reserve center. Another person was wounded at the recruiting center.

Abdulazeez, who is believed to have been born in Kuwait, was shot and killed. Authorities have not said if he shot himself or if police shot him.

What a great sense of timing the leader of all American has... are you as insulted by this wishing to all American a great "Joy" as I am? And the families of four dead Marines, does Obama wishes them joy too and if not, why not?

It certainly appears, Obama places goodwill of moslems over the feelings of Americans
15  Other / Politics & Society / President Obama admires Putin’s help over Iran nuclear talks on: July 16, 2015, 09:35:28 AM
President Barack Obama has said that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin helped the United States to conclude the prolonged nuclear negotiations with Iran despite tensions between Washington and Moscow.

“Russia was a help on this. I’ll be honest with you. I was not sure given the strong differences we are having with Russia right now around Ukraine, whether this would sustain itself,” the US president said during an interview with the New York Times on Tuesday.

“Putin and the Russian government compartmentalized on this in a way that surprised me, and we would have not achieved this agreement had it not been for Russia’s willingness to stick with us and the other P5-Plus members in insisting on a strong deal,” he added.

Iran and the P5+1 group of countries -- the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany -- reached a conclusion on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the Austrian capital of Vienna on Tuesday.

The JCPOA will put limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for the removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

According to the text of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran will be recognized by the United Nations as a nuclear power and will continue its uranium enrichment program.

http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/07/15/420342/Obama-Putin-US-Iran-talks

There is something I like in this President: he is showing to be a real statesman. This last move, to show appreciation for Putin's behavior about Iran is a nice move.This is a clue that this administration is planning to do something to restart from what Bush administration did WITH Russia.It's just a little step, but a meaningful step.

In return for an end to sanctions, Iran will limit its nuclear activities.

Wow! I guess that when U.S. leftists totally refused to hold their Political Messiah responsible for his lies concerning Obamacare (If you like your current Health Care plan and M.D. then you can keep them) that he experienced this sense of anti-ethical freedom to the degree that he no longer worries about being caught out in any lie whatsoever. 99% of the world does NOT want this particular piece of crap nuclear deal with Iran!Hmmm . . . and so what to discuss about this? There is nothing to discuss in reality. The GOP leadership have repeatedly proved that they have the collective political spine of a worm and so after much blustering and threats they will ultimately sign off on Obama's obscenity of a 'deal' with Iran; an Iran that by the way is laughing at the United States over this deal.

So there is nothing to debate. It's effectively a done deal. I just wonder WHY leftists WANTED to do this sort of thing to the United States of America and to the West in general when they deliberately selected a first term U.S. senator with ZERO meaningful national level experience to become president and then put him into office again after he amply demonstrated that as president he is and shall always be a radical nation-hating Community Organizer. Why in the world were leftists DETERMINED to do THAT to this nation and to the West?
