They don't HAVE to, it's just been a way of life in the U.S. for over 200 years, agreed upon by both sides. Starting to erode now, by ONE political party.

The reason people are intolerant of your speech is because what you speak of is intolerable.

If you want people to listen to you don't say really unpleasant things.

Why is everyone on the other side of religious and political argument a total plonker? It seems without exception. Surely there are those that can actually think and maintain a coherent, rational argument? Shirley?

well, why?
it seems very unchristian to me.

I used to think that 'Christian' was synonymous with 'nice'. I've learned a lot since.

There are some nice Christians but Christianity itself is revolting and very definitely unChristian.

'What would Jesus do?' They generally don't like the answer.

If i dont get enough after my best attempts at forming consensus with the world then I /we will blow something up versus being humiliated and squeezed.

How Christian. Is that something Jesus revealed to you in your long conversations?

Phat writes:

Of course not!


Ok, so it's just you wanting to stuff blow up. I thought you were saved?

But the fact is, the educated class would rather support a global meritocracy rather than taking care of their own people. This is why globalism potentially sucks.

I'm part of the 'educated class' and I have no idea what 'globalism' is. It seems to be something that conspiracy theorists and religious right wing nutters concern themselves with. They seem to need an idealogical enemy.

(btw, didn't you go to school? It would explain a lot)

Re: In Essence You Support A Meritocracy
And I suppose it helps if you can manage to turn education into 'a bad thing' so that the uneducated can feel better about themselves. Stupid and proud,

Reminds me of a Dilbert cartoon

I will be honest. i recently bought a 100 oz silver bar from Bernie. Silver spot was 25.00 an ounce. i paid 2800.00 for the bar. Check back with me in a year and we can crunch the numbers.
i know im not a wise sage. um foolish in many ways and this may prove to be one of them.

You're just gambling again.

I trust my intuition.

You're intuition is shit Phat, not least because there can be no such thing intuition forecasting silver prices. It's just a bet.

Any analyst uses intuition based on what they already know and have seen about the markets.

You're not an analyst, you're just betting based on you special spidie senses.

My inner spidey recommends that your personal investments be widely diversified.

Is that what Jesus tells you?

Once thats done you and I can relax and go fishing.

I relaxed and went fishing decades ago having invested in myself not half-understood "investments" that I had no control over..

You do understand that the market traders get rich by taking a percentage off every gambler's trade, not so much by gambling themselves?
