    We’ll that’s one reason I decided to skip the ride this am. I’m certain that two issues caused the problem. First, I over exerted myself trying to do too much too fast. I ride weekly not daily, so I need to notch back the ambition. Secondly, I’m thinking my seat needs adjustment. I thought the [...]

    Speaking of amazing bicycle mileage, the boys howled this morning because I needed to skip our ride to school. Crap.

    LOL!! I hadn’t thought of that, but it makes sense! Was SD a thigh man? ‘Cause Nagi’s a thigh cat. Chicken thigh, that is.

    Yes, I miss SD too. Never. Give. Up.

    Nagi is a little cheater. He comes home for a turn at the kibble bowl and to tell me he’s safe and happy and then he roams the neighborhood. Little brat.

    Not to bad for a 19 year old buffed up gym boy, let alone an older lady. You should be crowing about your achievement!!

    I hesitate to write this because corruption is usually much worse than it initially appears…

    Genius couldn’t even make a buck with insider information. These are the types who head our institutions.

    During the 2007 timeframe, Ukraine’s parliament was working on legislating agricultural issues. There was a constitutional crisis at the time. This was after the first round of the Orange Revolution. Potash is a chemical used in fertilizer. Perhaps there was some connection there. We know Cargill in particular has been in Ukraine.

    Wondering if potash and/or aluminum are dual use materials for military as well as agriculture.

    Never. Give. Up.

  • Right? It’s counterintuitive! Peeps like us get all warm and fuzzy when we think about people power overturning an oppressive system — and we should be, when it’s totally authentic and not underwritten by NEd and Otpor!

    Russia and China know that USG is behind the color revolutions and both have said so publicly. Even if USG isn’t a major player in the protests (although it is), Russia and China rightfully see USG meddling as an attack on their sovereignty.

    If US had proof that occupy was funded and trained by Russia in an attempt to depose Obama and dissolve Congress, would the US respond militarily?

    One step further. Russia and China *believe* US is involved in their burgeoning color revolutions, so even if US isn’t, Russia and China will act as if.

  • I supported Occupy here strongly. In retrospect, occupy was *likely* used by one faction of our elites against another. Remember the redacted lines of government docs relating to sniper assassination of Occupy leaders in TX? Well, look how snipers have been used in other color revolutions to escalate conflict rather than stifle the opposition. The sniper assassinations were to be used in TX “if deemed necessary”, which I read to mean if one faction of our elites didn’t get what they wanted from another faction of our elites (Obama?)

  • Blowback is a euphemism for a fabricated reason for military escalation.

  • Disagree entirely. US is using Islamic entities around the world including but not limited to the Muslim Brotherhood to establish a US controlled Caucasus/ME region and to destabilize Russia through Chechnya and Dagestan and China through Its Uighar regions. Ask yourself why blowback always gives the US a reason to double down on a region.

  • The Arab Spring and several contemporaneous “revolutions” created by the US were wildly successful. NED and Otpor! Have a system to hijack legit local activist energy to use as cover for their insidious aims.

  • Exactly. And, that’s the mindset that is leading us down a path to another world war — our oligarchs v. the oligarchs of Russia and China. Capitalism v. Communism during the Cold War was largely a cover story for a deeper battle for the global oligarchs’ access to resources around the world.

  • Further, Moscow warned that the US was fomenting a color revolution to begin in Russia at the time of the elections there in September. Vigilant Putin prevented that,but the HK protests sprouted at that magical time. Go figure.

  • Wait. The protesters are the good guys, to be sure. But. The organizational infrastructure behind the righteous protesters is funded and guided by the odious NED, which means that the Umbrella Revolution is ultimately a creation of the US. In fact, even some of the language used in NED literature has wound up being used by the protesters; for example, the peculiar phrase “universal suffrage” is in NED docs predations the HK protests.

    McCain said a few years ago that the Arab Spring would arrive in Moscow and Beijing. In retrospect, that was a threat and a promise rather than a prediction.

    This is how I do it: take a head of cauliflower, chop it into chunks, and put it in the food processor. Chop down to rice size pices. Set aside. Cut ham steak into small cubes. Mix a couple tablespoons of rice wine (or white wine, chick broth or whatever you have on hand), about [...]

    Totally off topic, but I have to share a recipe find. We are doing an XFit paleo eating “challenge” *cough fucking diet cough* and since grains are forbidden, I tried making Chinese fried rice substituting cauliflower for cooked rice. Not only was it very tasty, it was easier to prepare than using real rice!
