Does socialists are against the right of guns possesion by the people?
Robecology comments on Jun 13, 2019:
Socialism isn't for or against gun rights. It's for using the government to collect funds to pay for things that society needs...so for example, Socialism collects money (taxes) to pay for -military -health care -road and highway maintenance -schools/education. -regulation of farming, food production, and other things...including licensing, testing and demanding insurance for car -and gun - use. Some nations have got this down well. Some don't do well with it at all. Brazil has had the socialization of fuel regulation ahead of most North and South American nations. That's why you pay so little for gas; and almost all of your gas has 10-15% Ethanol (alcohol from plants) in it. Brazil is apparently well socialized in health care. I'm not sure where you stand with gun regulation and control. But you are far ahead of us in the fuel and health care department. With our rediculous death rate, I'm guessing you're ahead of us in gun regulation and control (socialization) as well Healthcare in Brazil is a constitutional right. ... Public healthcare is provided to all Brazilian permanent residents and foreigners in Brazilian territory through the National Healthcare System, known as the Unified Health System (Portuguese: Sistema Único de Saúde, SUS). The SUS is universal and free for everyone. Healthcare in Brazil - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_in_Brazil

You hit on the main reason I'm happily divorced. I have been with women who at first seem smart, and articulate; but then get down to the "threatening and belittling" campaigns. That's when I softly, and politely, issue an ultimatum...'either you will quietly, softly, and slowly discuss the issue, and how you will help me solve it...or you will say nothing - and leave". It's about "Transactional Analysis" (see link attached). It's about talking "adult to adult" not talking "down". It's about talking, not shouting. It's about addressing the problem, not attacking the person. If you're in a debate; it's debating the issues; fairly, quietly, with equal time given to each debater. The goal is to stay close to the top of the debate triangle. (see image) Here's my favorite chart on that issue; I keep it handy;

Robecology comments on Jun 13, 2019:
It's an interesting perspective. I have to respect those tapering off on red meat, as I have; most med science finds we eat too much of it. Butchering is still a skill, and can be an expensive proposition. While touring a mid-western cattle ranch last year, I asked the owner "what's holding back farmers from raising Buffalo" the answer wasn't the cost of the feed - it was the cost of the butchering harness. Cattle can have their heads locked In rather inexpensively. Buffalo, due to their almost missing neck and huge shoulders, need a very expensive harness. Laws are now being considered and passed, allowing field slaughter. That way the animals aren't herded and guided in to slaughter locks....which builds up toxins in their flesh. https://www.concordmonitor.com/Archive/2016/03/From-Archives-2/buffalobill-cm-032316 Once you've seen it...or have taken part in it...you "get it" and know that the best and smartest make sure that it's sudden and leaves the animal with little "suffering". Those labels were slapped on the packaging by folk who I'm sure never experienced "butchering"; and it shows a bias of theirs...the animals aren't "named" - they are I.D. by number tags...and it's unkind and unfair of them to assign a name to the meat cut. They're trying to personalize this. That's wrong. And it's a fact; taste is an acquired thing. I do admire folk who've lowered or removed their taste for meat from their diet. I've tried...I can't.

Robecology comments on Jun 13, 2019:
Fascinating indeed. I recall reading that the Oriental eyelid (which contains far more fatty tissue than most) evolved as eye protection from the cold. I also recall reading that small-statured was a survival feature of many island species; from humans down to Key Deer. Something about the smaller body needing less food and thus thriving in a minimalist island environment. "The diminutive stature and small brain of H. floresiensis may have resulted from island dwarfism—an evolutionary process that results from long-term isolation on a small island with limited food resources and a lack of predators. Pygmy elephants on Flores, now extinct, showed the same adaptation." "The smallest known species of Homo and Stegodon elephant are both found on the island of Flores, Indonesia. However, some scientists are now considering the possibility that the ancestors of H. floresiensis may have been small when they first reached Flores." http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-fossils/species/homo-floresiensis

I love my son and daughter in law; but that's one habit they've developed that i hate; always pushing my new grandson to eat. I raised my son to be a very picky eater...and now in his late 30's he's still lean and athletic...yet they've adopted a "helicopter" or "bulldozer" parent approach...and I feel sorry for my little Grandson.

Some are raised by not such good "communicators....some raised with less "love" than others....so does this mean they're "fated" to be the same? Some of us come out of sad/corrupt/spiteful/hostile parental relationships and fight to never let that happen in their lives... And what does that mean; "fight like a married couple"?

This was a "world cup" match. I'm talking as a former soccer coach. No...you don't "ease up" if you're ahead. You put in 2nd and 3rd string to test your depth. This was "the best of the best of each nation".... Shame on Thailand...a former well known soccer-obsessed nation For putting up such a defenseless team; or for playing "defeatist" Soccer. The U.S. players in then were 2nd and 3rd string...so, no...you don't "let up" and play soft in a championship match. This was a chance for players who are rarely put in to "show their stuff"....so of course the 2nd and 3rd string women played hard. This is a tribute to our depth of field. This is a harbinger of Women's soccer; watch out, World. We're tough...and deep. Here's a clip of the Thailand women's soccer team warming up.

Robecology comments on Jun 11, 2019:
My prediction could almost be made in to a movie; in fact; I'm thinking of producing a story-line and marketing it, because it's based on real-life information. 1. As global warming continues - conditions are improving for "super-storm formation and maintenance....so two or more "perfect" hurricanes, Saffir-Simpson #5 or stronger...hits not only a major metropolis in the US east coast, but a Typhoon (the name for hurricanes in the pacific) does the same, around the same time. (this isn't a matter of if....it's a matter of when). The area hit in the Pacific can be Seoul Korea, Japan, Vietnam, China, even India and/or Bangladesh. See this video to see why - if Bangladesh takes the brunt of a #5 Typhoon - that millions will die. https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/bangladesh-country-underwater-culture-move 2. With the US disaster, there's tens to hundreds of billions of dollars of damage, and some very "photogenic" images of tilted - and perhaps toppled - skyscrapers. Perhaps this happens to the metropolis of Washington, D.C; which also causes a political "stand-still". But with the Pacific disaster, a wide swath of low-lying ultra poor are drowned or killed by the savage winds and flying debris. The two day death toll is in the hundreds of thousands and the 7 day toll goes over a million. 3. In the US....the death toll is low; but the images of tilted and toppled skyscrapers incite politicians to create emergency measures and proposals to stop the "already-too-late-to-stop" fossil fuel onslaught on our atmosphere. 4. Meanwhile, in the pacific and Asia, death tolls continue to rise as all the rotting corpses create an ideal breeding ground for more potent diseases...so rapidly evolving infections are becoming air borne; and the death toll not only rises, but spreads. 5.The spreading, highly contagious diseases brewed by all the rotting corpses creates panic and mass migrations. Reactions to mass migrations go from mass incarceration to mass weapons assault in a vain attempt to slow down the panic-flow of immigrants. 6. One of the middle eastern - or North Korean - nations with a phalanx of armed nuclear weapons presses the button to counter-act the aggression against the nations blocking the massive migration away from the rapidly spreading disease....and larger nations, getting wind of this nuclear launch, produce a counter attack. 7.And you continue the story.... https://www.sciencenewsforstudents.org/sites/default/files/scald-image/860_tropical_cyclones_1851_2015_allstorms.png.

[cnn.com] Pompeo suggests people should move if they don't like climate change. - Is he a moron?...
Robecology comments on Jun 11, 2019:
Pompeo is religious; he often talks about "being blessed" and "blessings to you and your family"....but he seems to carry on intelligent conversations; so as an ecologist/Environmentalist, I'm disappointed about his comments regarding "climate change" - yet I'm impressed with his efforts to gain knowledge. So as unreal as it seems, Pompeo also seems to know what he's doing in politics...albeit a bit of a "traditionalist" approach...he's well versed in "intelligence" (per se...see this; https://www.cbsnews.com/news/transcript-mike-pompeo-talks-with-michael-morell-on-intelligence-matters/ But most, if not all "religous" are #religulous" to me. They look at climate as "god's will" they minimize man's influence on it. They ignore the profit/greed motive for the fossil fuel push. And there's the rub. Is he intentionally ignoring the profiteers? Does he truly believe "it's in god's hands"? Or does he make the connection between the profit motive and the build-up of our "greenhouse" and inevitable ensuing disasters? That's a tough call. Read the interview. It's very detailed...and a bit revealing of Pompeo's personality.

OK. You admitted it. You said you're an idiot. But let's be real; That's not the normal you. Now how do you fix this? How do you go from idiot to wise and shrewd? Here's my recommendation #1..You admitted you're an idiot; but that's not who you normally are; Realize that this was the idiot side of you who called her. That's not normally who you are. She is obviously an obsession of your "idiot" persona. She likes him. She's been intimate with him. This isn't your fault. It's her loss. #2. Her attraction to him isn't based on anything he did to you; Why did "the idiot" think he needs his teeth knocked out...Does "the idiot" (your alter-ego) need to be in jail? Remember - you're not an idiot. You need to erase this persona. Get back to the man she was impressed with; the shrewd and wise one. Erase the idiot. #3. You need to go from hatred to indifference ASAP. How? Block her phone # and/or remove it from your phone. Write down on a note and hang it on the fridge; "You want to move from hatred to indifference ASAP." Find ways to be OK being alone. Get back in to a hobby. Or cooking. or fixing the car. Spend time contacting new people. Going out with old friends not related to her Get some gym equipment. Do some workouts at home. No one to 'impress" there. Do this. Now. You'll thank me later.
OK now to talk about the 2nd amendment. Right to Bear Arms. What does that mean to you? More ...
Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
Bingo....you touched on the major flaw of the 2nd amendment. And what's a "well disciplined militia"? Isn't it clear in the 2nd amendment that in order to "bear arms" you have to be a member of a "well disciplined militia"? I sure hope that in 2020 we have such a sweeping change in politicians that some brave soul finally proposes a re-write for this terribly written and obviously out-dated legal document.

What is your experience with online dating?
Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
Some good came of it...I met three "lovers" - one whom I married - then divorced....but overall; it was a useful tool. I'm talking about almost pre-internet days (late 80's) until less than 10 years ago...and quite a lot has changed since then. The best; most recommended? POF, OKCupid - only because they were free. Eharmony and Match proved (to me) to be waste of time...and money. Right now? I've met no-one through Agnostic but I can see how it could be a useful - and free - dating site. Right now the population (of this site) seems too low to find a like-minded person within a reasonable distance....but that could change.

As I had said...earlier... I've been in to - and out of - alcohol interests all my life. Never developed a "Wine-snob" POV. I like my Martini's straight and cold...not dirty, "dry" (no vermouth) and any brand will do. Tequila's fun...anyone notice a slightly different "high"? ...and I'll "taste" a liquer every now and then... Beer? The cheap stuff is fine to me...every once in a while. A feature that "sold" me on my new home is a separate "bar" complete with mirrors and glass shelves. I hung a couple of glass racks at the top....and I'm proud of the look!

[cnn.com] Pompeo suggests people should move if they don't like climate change. - Is he a moron?...
Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
He makes a good point. Most people who live close to rising shore lines -and who can afford to do so - are moving. The property value in some of these area are going down....and the insurance rates are going up. Except for future developers....who know how to "raise the ground level, elevate driveways, etc....so this is, in fact, happening now. And the rich are getting richer...while the poor get poorer. Watch this shocking aerial view of Bangladesth....then read - the coming floods, or sudden sea-level rise in these areas will kill a million or more overnight. There are few other places to go when your country is being slowly swallowed by the sea. Climate experts predict that by 2050, rising sea levels will submerge some 17 percent of the nation’s land and displace about 20 million people. And the whole of Bangladesh is roughly the size of Iowa. So Dhaka, for so many of its transplants, is a city of last resort. But the #Religulous Republicans will call it "god's plan" and "natural birth control" https://www.nrdc.org/onearth/bangladesh-country-underwater-culture-move

Robecology comments on Jun 10, 2019:
I've been using a pressure cooker for decades. Read the recipe book. With some effort you can make some astounding good meals. And I ignore the warnings about rice and pasta...just watch that you don't add so much water that the outlet at the top sputters. It really speeds up cooking brown rice.

And you chose an Avatar-name of a very advanced species! Kudos! The Cetaceans will then have their turn... When, in the near future we Homo sapiens bite the dust... Think about it. No clothes, no buildings, no farms, no schools, no jobs. The dolphins and whales already are more advanced than us in a lot of ways. They deserve the next dominance on earth. OK...so they don't develop technology and spend their entire lives eating, having fun, and having sex...doesn't sound that bad, does it? I bet they even figure out intelligent family planning...maybe they already have?
