#3140534 Breaking: US and Cuba seek to normalise ties

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on Yesterday, 02:28 PM

No more Cuban sugar embargo? 

 

Cell towers are probably over heating right now with American cane and corn farmers calling their lobbyist in DC.

Rubio is pandering to his base of wealthy ex-patriots who fled Cuba over 50 years ago.

Bet these people will be among the first to take advantage of what Obama is doing now to normalize relations, but will never thank him for his efforts.

Long overdue.

Best way to defeat soviet style dictatorships?

Access to Western consumer goods.

Like watching kids in a candy shop.

This tragic situation in Russia will likely result in at least on epic novel being written.

#3139213 Why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 16 December 2014 - 12:51 PM

I think education in general frightens a lot of people especially super religious people. It can mess with the indoctrination.


Like the Governor of Ohio?

Schools need a religious partner if they want any of Gov. Kasich's student mentorship money


CLEVELAND, Ohio – Gov. John Kasich's $10 million plan to bring mentors into Ohio's schools for students now has a surprise religious requirement – one that goes beyond what is spelled out in the legislation authorizing it.

Any school district that wants a piece of that state money must partner with both a church and a business – or a faith-based organization and a non-profit set up by a business to do community service.

No business and no faith-based partner means no state dollars.

"You must include a faith-based partner," United Way of Greater Cleveland President Bill Kitson, told potential applicants at an information session the United Way hosted Thursday here in Cleveland.

Kitson sits on Kasich's advisory panel for the program, called "Community Connectors," which is taking applications for grants now.

#3138655 Why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 16 December 2014 - 12:27 AM

yup, it's a word used to incur knee-jerk responses that lack insight… like the fact that if you were the british government in the 18th century, george washington was a bloodthirsty terrorist who wrote in his nasty terrorist prayer journal in campaigns against The Troops, who are our heroes and looked out for by Almighty God


I really don't understand why it is so difficult for most people to appreciate this point.


#3138646 Why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 16 December 2014 - 12:19 AM

Already answered. It's a classic eye for an eye response. Where have I heard that before? Hmm.
If all the US involvement were solely based on religion or invoking Christianity yeah I can see the apples vs the other apples.
Unfortunately things are global now and the walls are less and less due to technology. The rational people that are Muslim are going about making change and getting results a safer and more peaceful route.
If the US and other nations felt like if they all just pulled out of the places that the radicals didn't want them to be then I'm sure they would. But what confidence are the radicals giving the West that they will not mess with Israel? And yea Israel has to play nice as well. Believe what people will do, not what they say.


You are not trying very hard to pretend you are pstall the Muslim now are you?

Terms like "radicals" or "terrorists" are terms used to delegitimize an adversary.

Nothing will be ever be resolved when both sides consider the other's POV to be illegitimate.


#3137206 The story of Robert Bryant and Jason Klonowski

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 15 December 2014 - 12:21 PM

Sounds like a story you'd hear in Mexico.

 
 

Or 1950's Mississippi


Or in 2004 when the American voters reelected GWB to office after he started an illegal war on false pretenses resulting in the deaths of thousands of young Americans and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians.

Sadly, there are still several individuals here that support that horrific war to this very day.

So... A murderous sheriff getting reelected by an ignorant small town electorate? Peanuts by comparison.


#3136551 So, if we win the South, who do we host?

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 15 December 2014 - 12:10 AM

If we were to beat AZ in the playoffs this year it would go a long way towards healing some old wounds.


#3135684 So is Cam already out for next week?

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 14 December 2014 - 05:20 PM

Until Shula solves the riddle that is the red zone, any team in the league will stand a good chance of beating the Panthers.


#3135663 If the Panthers make the Playoffs...

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 14 December 2014 - 05:16 PM

I remember a few years ago when the Panthers looked like a lock for representing the NFC in the SB

Then JD throws like 5 picks and our season is over

Anything can happen in the playoffs

Role the dice and take your chances

He is a liability!


Yeah, we kinda already knew that.

Well, there's a timeout gone. And I'm sure we'll probably need it towards the end.

 

It is the 4th quarter and we are up by 6 points, in Ron's mind that is like a million.
