Re: A Prime Example of Racism
Percy responds again to our resident Racist:
What I was pointing out was that, most blacks, (and so many white race-hustlers who try to exploit them) constantly lament about how tough they had it when they were growing up, and use that as an excuse for their rioting and dependence on handouts. Very few blacks can claim they had a tougher time growing up than Sowell did. He made it work without rioting and handouts in the 1950's. They should all be able to make it work today, without all the accusations about how unfairly they've been treated historically.
Yes, I know, you racists want blacks to stop being so uppity and to just accept the lot in life that racists have assigned them and make the best they can of it. If it was good enough for Sowell then it should be good enough for them.
We can imagine/know how Marc feels about Reparations That Are Still Due (concurrent with ones also still due to the original tribes living here).
Marc, until you have lived in a black man's shoes your spoutings here are just shit. Since you cannot live in a black man's shoes, you should just save as much as whatever face you still have left and STFU.
I am trying to find anything good you have said on EvC and cannot. You are a sad little man.
My apologies to Percy for intruding into his demolition of Marc.

Re: Fascism
LNA keeps his BS meter running:
You said John Wayne was not rabid?
No, Ringo said
"He wasn't as rabid as you and the modern "Republicans".
with the operative word being "AS". Sort of on a scale, LNA.
Republicans are actually putting up a fight for free-speech
If squawking shit nonsense and delusional fantasies that endanger the public are considered "free speech", then you may have a point. But they're not.
the existential threat from criminalizers/fascists like Cheney
Are you talking about her dad? then maybe I'd begin to agree, but I think you are talking about one of the most beaming heroes of the old Republican party, Liz Cheney - who is calling out the Repugnants on their shit lies, which is plain to see for everyone but Fox News and the insurrectionists that are still encamped in the Big Trump Lie.
On the John Wayne stuff I'd mostly agree with your characterizations, but this:
John Wayne would have attacked the Biden pullout of Afghanistan
is purely your own bullshit. Yes, John may have gone along with the rabid right wingers and blamed Biden. But it was Trump that fucked us over real good with that one and Biden managed to extricate the armed forces with an astonishingly LOW casualty count. You really ate up the Fox News slimey shit with that big mouth of yours, didn't you? Man, how do you even function? Walk? Use a computer? Read?-wait, I know that answer.
I hope you aren't old enough to drive.

Re: LNA on history
LNA turns his wild accusatory eyes towards Ringo with:
Learn your history, Ringo.
Still brandishing your "I can't read" sign, huh? What ever makes you think he hasn't?

Re: Gold
Theodoric writes about Phat, among other things:
Damn. You are heavily invested in gold arent you. Oh well.
Yunno gang?
The one good thing about gold that I have seen, the only really good thing, is that it makes a great reflective surface for Infrared Light when building mirrors, such as the James Webb Space Telescope. It has also been used on satellites in many other places as well.
So I guess it's not such a horribly bad thing after all. Mowgli's story of the King's Ankus getting thrown back in the old cobra's pit may need a revision. Send it up in space!

Re: Gold

Gold is an interesting element. It is the most malleable metal and also the best non-superconducting electrical conductor.
and, as i noted above, it makes for a great reflective surface in the IR spectrum and has other applications on spacecraft.
just don't make an Ankus with it.

Hey, wasn't there a James Bond plot, something about making gold radioactive?
That was the Bond movie, Goldfinger. I read the novel over half a century ago, so I forget if that plot point was in the book (Wikipedia reports that the plot was to steal the gold in Fort Knox
wiki missed it. radioactive for 58 years:

Re: R E S P E C T
Percy, writing bout Phat:
What I think you're seeing is what a damaged brain does, weave together fragments of uncorrelated and unfiltered information and feelings from different brain regions. Feelings of paranoia, euphoria and infallibility become all mixed together.
but lately he seems to have improved. he sentences are better.

Re: Roe v Wade is coming down.
All Repugnants should be shot at dawn, including the 6 Assholes nominated by the Repugnants. Biden should then immediately expand the court to 13, one for each of the original states and appoint 6 + 4 = 10 more judges.
The Repugnants are just to repugnant to live.
If I posted this on Facebook this post would immediately put me back in Facebook jail, for the 9th time.
Do with me what you will, Percy.
