davknight comments on Feb 4, 2019:
I don't think the U.S. even has a nation-wide rubric for treating the mentally ill. It would vary so much from state to state. From what I can see, we either consign them to group homes run by non-profits, turn em loose but medicated, or even run em for President!

davknight comments on Feb 2, 2019:
A U.S. withdrawal from the Treaty, justifies Russia doing the same, which allows Russia to build and emplace more Intermediate-ranged weapons on their border with Ukraine, and the rest of NATO. It is of no threat to the U.S. But it is a threat to the EU and NATO. It is a cleverly disguised boon to Putin's desires for territorial expansion. It makes one wonder if there isn't some truth to allegations of Trump being in the employ of Russian Intelligence.

How do you quit smoking? My girl friend is dying from smoking and won't quit. Help! Anybody know?
davknight comments on Feb 2, 2019:
Quitting smoking can be done in one week. It's quitting the nicotine that's hard. I would recommend enrolling in a Stop Smoking class, and using the nicotine lozenges they give you. Start with the 4 mg, and then go to the 2 mg. I quit in 2014; and that's how I did it. Good luck!

I once went into a Starbucks, and ordered an ordinary cup of Columbian coffee. The clerk told me they "didn't have any". I left, bewildered; and haven't been in a Starbucks since. I try to keep my coffee consumption down to two cups each morning. And that does it for me. On cold mornings, I find a shot of Irish Whiskey gives it all the zing I need. I once wrote a research paper on coffee consumption. Did you know that, as of 1890, coffee consumption in the U.S. was less than 10 lbs per person, per year? To boost sales, U.S. coffee importers conducted an advertising campaign, featuring posters of Victorian-looking women, with stoned smiles on their faces, sniffing the fumes arising off hot cups of coffee. Thus, by 1900, U.S. coffee consumption increased to 100 lbs per person, per year Nowadays, it's somewhere between 160-170 lbs (which means a lot of it must go down the drain!). Israel is the World's biggest consumer of coffee, closely followed by Sweden.

Robo Calls & Junk Mail
davknight comments on Jan 31, 2019:
Yes. If you've got a p.o. box, you'll get deluged with junk mail. I've had four, over the past 20 years. And the junk mail was a big headache. One solution might be to buy a paper-making kit from Hobby Lobby, and convert it all into stationary, or maybe even toilet paper. But you'd only be re-cycling it. Another solution might be to mark each piece "Return to Sender", and re-mail it.(Although, I don't know if the Post Office accepts re-mailed junk mail).

Earliest known lead exposure... [sciencedaily.com]
davknight comments on Jan 29, 2019:
I'm surprised the oldest known exposure to lead wasn't in Spain's Balearic Islands. In the ancient past, it was quite rich in lead deposits. Much of it just laying around. The Romans used to recruit cohorts of slingers from the Balearics, who were notorious for using lead shot. The lead shot expanded on contact with human flesh, and produced a bigger shock wave .

From NACLA July 1 2008: Outsourcing the Iraq War: Mercenary Recruiters Turn to Latin America Despite the fact that public sentiment in Latin America has been strongly against the Iraq war since it began, thousands of Latin Americans have the joined the occupation, many of them as private contractors hired by U.S. companies like Blackwater and Triple Canopy. July 1, 2008 Eric Stoner In October, Erik Prince, the 39-year-old CEO of Blackwater Worldwide, a leading private security company operating in Iraq, went into damage-control mode. Blackwater employees in Baghdad’s Nisour Square had killed 17 Iraqi civilians the previous month, causing an uproar and the suspension of official diplomatic convoys throughout the country for four days. Making the rounds with the media and testifying before Congress, Prince repeatedly said that his employees are not mercenaries, as critics contend. Citing the definition of a mercenary as “a professional soldier working for a foreign government,” Prince told the House Oversight Committee that in contrast, Blackwater’s employees are “Americans working for America, protecting Americans.” This statement would come as a surprise—and a slap in the face—to the thousands of Latin Americans and others from outside the United States whom the company has hired to fill its contracts in Iraq since the war began. Greystone Limited, a Blackwater affiliate set up in 2004 in the tax haven of Barbados, has recruited Iraq security guards from countries throughout Latin America, including Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, El Salvador, Honduras, and Panama, as journalist Jeremy Scahill has reported. But Blackwater is far from the only such company hiring “third-country nationals,” or employees who are not from the United States or Iraq. In the interest of improving profit margins, private military firms in Iraq are increasingly turning to the developing world for armed guards. Peter Singer, a leading expert on the private security industry at the Brookings Institution, has estimated that there are citizens from 30 countries employed as security contractors in Iraq. While ex-soldiers from the Balkans, Fiji, Nepal, the Philippines, South Africa, and Uganda are all common in Iraq, Latin America has proven to be a particularly fertile recruiting ground for these companies. Latin America, says Adam Isacson, director of programs at the Center for International Policy, is a predictable site for U.S. mercenary companies to recruit personnel. In “what other region of the world are you going to find reasonably westernized people with military experience, in some cases with combat experience, who will work for low wages, who speak a language that a lot of our own military personnel speak,” he asks, noting that ...

So, I sometimes inserted insulting Latin phrases into research papers I wrote, just to see if any of my 'smarter-than-thou' profs would catch on. None of them ever did! Of course, I only did this to profs I considered over-rated charlatans.

Another peculiarity of the contractors is that they pay different wages to different nationalities. E.g., Chileans might get $300 per day, while Americans get $1,000 per day. I'm surprised it hasn't produced friction within their ranks.

davknight comments on Jan 29, 2019:
I was sitting on my couch, watching the 'Today Show' coverage. A thought flashed through my mind. 'Watch it blow up!'. Then, for a brief second, I 'saw' it blow up. It was a very visual image, like i was watching it on TV. Only it was still on the launch pad. Then, it was launched; and a few moments later, it blew up in flight. Then, I could remember feeling guilty about the whole thing. But what could I have done? Anyone else ever have a pre-cognitive experience? I have had a few. Some of which saved my life.

davknight comments on Jan 26, 2019:
I hope not. The Venezuelan Army alone, fields 550,000 troops. In addition, there are nearly 1,000,000 National Guard and Militia. Trump thinks it would be a walk-in, like Granada, or Panama. But the Venezuelans are much more numerous, and heavily armed. They have invested their oil money in their military over the years, in anticipation of a US invasion. And the Americans would certainly sustain heavy losses. It would just be another money-draining 'forever war'.

davknight comments on Jan 17, 2019:
Glorification of the US Military goes back to the post-Vietnam War period. The Pentagon decided to undertake a massive makeover of the military's PR image. One of the methods they used was to make available to filmmakers, cash grants, if they were making a film that glorified, or inspired sympathy for the military.A similar project was undertaken by the old Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, to improve the public's perception of the police. In that case, funds were made available to offset the production costs of 'cop shows' on TV. So, the US population has undergone nearly 50 years of pro- police/military psychological conditioning in that regards.
