    Btw, it isn’t an early symbol of Christianity, that’s the fish. The cross only shows up with Emperor Constantine, as James Carroll documented well in his book. Throwing the body up on the cross is only the next stage in insanity, its something that is so obviously wrong, but when you are even a normal attending catholic, you just block it out.
    The best is trying to explain how the cross isn’t really a good Christian symbol to someone who really believes. Even better trying to explain how taxes, military funding, and empire factor in… Oh wait.

    You killed the tone of the article with your link, nicely done. I agree, this is “look at what I say, not what I do” from the Russians. They don’t want to be seen as the aggressors in this brewing storm of blame, we’ve already tried pushing in a litany of ways. Just checking back to us makes them look a lot better, and forces us to show how committed we are.

  • Nail on the head. The question really is, does he need to buy time for the next compromise? Or was he hopeful that this would somehow push things up enough to justify muddling along putting everyone in debt even more.

    Spot on. I mean, as much as I enjoy sounding like a nuts doomer and becoming more withdrawn in order to fit in, it would be nice for our society to pull its head of its collective ass. It’s not like any of these problems are “new”, the complexity has just increased, as always, and the will of the “people” has become entirely co-opted. It will take effort to reset, and like you’ve implied, it will not be pretty.

    Mumm, exactly! Sadly =(

    Much like the junk the Spanish are about to do tomorrow morning. Insisting they don’t need to hold off selling debt into an open market, while crying for a private bailout from someone else (Germany). Where were they when Greece wanted help? Its all fun and games to force people to play by the rules… Until you’re the one losing.

    I believe that is one of the final options to play before the election in order to fully pull the rug out from romneybot. Promises, lies, all of it. Believe what I say, not what I do.

    have a goodnight sir! We can hope that cooler heads prevail, because the actions of the USA have not put us in a position to bargain much at all.

    Go figure! If I wanted to pretend I’d ever have a shot in a recording career, I’d point out I sound like him, dead on. It’s slightly scary because I actually remember singing along to him as a kid, not realizing his was dead. =/ Hell of a way to go out though.

    Bahaha I saw that! I thought it was a good choice! Unfortunately the problems consumers have are too often just the collateral damage of some giveaway to the corporatocracy, so trying to get people to clue in to the truth is rough.

    Unfortunately consumer decisions really are based on container size. I’m not sure the best way to deal with this is to fight them directly, in reality the subsides to corn have much more to deal with this problem. But what is NYC really gonna be able to do about that? I’m sure limiting portion size really does convince consumers to not buy as much of the liquid crack (which I do appreciate) so maybe its not the worst call ever. Its definitely a distraction though.

    pshh, ironically it seems to the best of our knowledge the human body just consumes to the point of excess no matter what. From my somewhat limited personal experience, this is absolutely true, but I don’t want it to ever limit me, so awesomely tasty tropical fruit here I come! If it seduced my father I’m sure it will cause problems with me too =P As much as he’d hate to admit it, our tastes are similar. Hopefully I end up in a position to try them out!

    Geez, good for you guys! That’s something I’d like to reenact someday if I get the chance to visit that way. I’ve only heard good things about the taste. I tend to hide from that sort of food though, in an attempt to keep a waistline and whatnot, but they do sound good =P

    Can’t let those brown folks have the weapons we’ve abused as reasons for keeping our nation in a state of subjugation. As some on here, and yourself I think know, Hollande is simply a neo-con stooge with leftist flavor all over. His position will help pull the EU into a position where they are infuriating [...]

    Haha, I’ve been too absent from your fonts lately! Glad to be noticed, I hope your night is treating you well, I’m loading up your post now, doesn’t look like it will help my mood though =P

    I honestly was absolutely terrified it would not be covered when it happened to me, glad to hear, functional asset pools can be useful!

    My dad has stories told about him climbing up for lychee nuts out your way, I’m wondering if I could make it going up one of those trees as a mainlander with too much climbing ability =P

    Those are truly sad/scary. That happened to me a week after getting my first car as a youth, turns out the city we lived in (western ny area) had planted a somewhat suspect oak. Within minutes of a light rainfall my entire street was blocked by a downed tree, with my car directly underneath. It’s impressive how little water/wind is needed to push them down. Hopefully nobody got hurt and it works out well with insurance!

    Well done DD for seeing the comical revision noise they keep firing month/week after week/month! The problem they boxed themselves into, was trying to use birth death data, and trumpeting how good things were getting, which causes people to actually go out and try to find a job again, or think seriously about getting a “more desired” job. Unfortunately lies are quickly catching up to reality, and once again neither candidate has any willingness to actually talk about this, and try to plan a recovery, or true recession to start over.
