What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

Re: Lyndon LaRouche
A classic American POS.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Lyndon LaRouche

Yep, that's for sure.

I remember, maybe back in the '80s, when he would do these long (30-60 minute) rants that ran on late night TV. Entertaining.

Looking at things in 2019, LaRouche can't hold a candle to Trump as far as being completely nuts. Trump being president is as anomalous as LaRouche becoming president. We're in an alternate universe.

Ken Nordine (April 13, 1920 – February 16, 2019)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Nordine

quote:
Ken Nordine (April 13, 1920 – February 16, 2019) was an American voice-over and recording artist, best known for his series of word jazz albums. His deep, resonant voice has also been featured in many commercial advertisements and movie trailers. One critic wrote that "you may not know Ken Nordine by name or face, but you'll almost certainly recognize his voice.

There is a hoard of video available via http://www.wordjazz.com/
