Topic: Serious Discussion / American wymyn will soon be forced to sign up for the draft

I personally say that they need to increase the age of which people can join. Right now, the US military, the joining age is 18 to 35. To me this isn’t broad enough. It needs to be 17 to 45. There’s many people that have reached around age 40 that decided to join, only to find out they’re too “old”.

Many people over 40 aren’t in the best health though. A realistic proposition is you can no matter what join if you’re under 35, but 45 if you’re in good health.

Topic: Serious Discussion / The first plasma: the Wendelstein 7-X fusion device is now in operation

Technology is the collection of skills, techniques and processes used to create something. Essentially the advancement of tools. Tools can be used for bad and good. Sometimes just one or the other. So of course we can think of ways a lot of it has done bad, but it has done good.

hates technology in general.

Look, I don’t hate technology. I’m just overly skeptical of things like this because as with any tool, bad things can come as well. So it’s best to evaluate and acknowledge any consequences before using this long term. “question everything” is my moral. But just because you have to question something doesn’t mean it’s bad or isn’t true.
Overall I really don’t give a damn about this fusion device, so in that you’re right. That doesn’t mean I’m anti-advancement altogether though.

Ruining the natural beauty is a real concern. Wind Mills when applied right don’t look so bad. I don’t agree putting them in naturally beautiful areas. I don’t agree putting much of anything that’s ugly in naturally beautiful areas.
I am all for them being applied near developed areas.

Hooligan, he’s maybe not using his wealth directly to help the world. But the knowledge and skill to have made that money to help the world.

Say what you will about him, but you can’t deny that a man of such wealth will do strongly in the economy. That’s what many most like about him.

So wait, Bob, if I understand you correctly, you are totally cool with me and a lot of my friends just dropping dead?

Not at all. One of my goals in that post was to steer away from that accusation. I said it once, I’ll say it again but more clear. I was being oblivious to all the people that need modern medical applications, which run on electricity to survive. If we wanted to put my 18th century lifestyle idea into force, Eugenics would be more of the optimal choice than downright genocide to take care of those who wouldn’t be able to live without modern technologies, as we could just prevent people from creating people that may potentially have to rely on them. I don’t agree with either Eugenics or genocide, because both choices go against my moral code. The sad thing is, some people are for Eugenics to eradicate religion and others are for genocide to eradicate certain religions.

The whole idea of us living lifestyles like they did in the 18th Century is indeed a creative idea. A valid approach to the pending energy crisis would be to not rely on modern energy at all. However such a approach would require ton’s of force and it would go against the interests of many people. The prospect is best left as a choice.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Bernie Sanders fatal flaw.

….
He’s

“Mad as hell and NOT going to take this anymore!”
and this is YOUR criticism of him? And that’s it?
I don’t think anger is a reason to deter someone from the White House. I personally desire a leader that will not let himself be trampled on and has a bit of a attitude.

Hillary has been accused of being abusive as well. And she really does seem to be female example of Wilford Brimley. People flock to her and say she’ll “do better than most Republicans.”

Trump has the attitude and temperament of a Boar. Many people are flocking to him. Why? His brash personality and Ultra-Successful wealth make him the ideal image of a leader to many people.

To me, we need a President that will do much more than “NOT take this anymore!” Someone that funds their own campaign, buys their OWN stuff and not from valuable tax payer money. And someone that will make us as a country respectable.
Someone like Ronald Reagan.

Good things and bad things happen when a man is President. I’ve found too many people just blame or thank the President for it. Just because a man is in office, doesn’t mean he had the full hand in it.

Example : Gay Marriage gets Legalized. People start thanking Obama for taking a huge effort towards making it happen.
Another Example : Mt McKinley gets renamed to “Denali”. People start blaming and trashing Obama for stripping this iconic Mountain of it’s name.

Vika, you’re taking what I’m saying completely out of proportion.

Originally posted by vikaTae:

Medical technology is not responsible for the obesity problem. You’re claiming it is the direct cause.

I wasn’t at all saying that was that was the cause. I was trying to say that with the knowledge we have gained about our health, we could use this to our advantage living in that kind of environment. People then were stronger, people now are healthier. Combine our health knowledge, we would both be strong and healthy.

I didn’t realise you actually meant ’we’ll load the entitre human race onto a giant spaceship and physically transport them back in time to the year 1700.
That indeed wasn’t was I meant. I was simply talking about REVERTING to how people LIVED back then.
You’re aware you are directly proposing genocide, right?
Eugenics would be a better proposition, that would fit more in what I was actually talking about. I am against that however. I would later add though, that UNFORTUNATELY, too many people today only survive because of todays technologies, hence making that whole 18th Century lifestyle idea useless if we want to do it morally. Right now it’s best left as a choice. And to me, that’s what its best left as.
How does your garage operate with absolutely no electrical power of any kind allowed within its walls? I’m sure you must make a fine living ripping the computers out of people’s cars and rewiring them so they’ll still run, albeit at much lower emission and safety standards.
Maybe it doesn’t occur to you, that I was talking about LIVING WITHOUT modern appliances? When someone says living without electricity, they’re meaning living without electrical appliances. I’m not an idiot, yet you treat me like one. learning how to live without modern comforts is a good idea. means the same to you as “Trying to work everything we work now without electricity”?
If breathable air even becomes so rare we’d have to fight to get enough for ourselves, I’m equally sure that most people would just give up interest in using it.
Air and oil are different things. And air is an infinite resource, unlike oil. What I meant by that one, is if we let ourselves run completely out of oil, and it becomes too much of a blood bath to get hands on it just to allow some people to live a few more months, it’ll be too illogical to continue. It’ll be the decision “Let a few thousand people die now just so a few hundred people to live a few more months.” And we wouldn’t want to take that decision. Hopefully we found and use other energy devices by then.
We shut down power to the farms, shut down power to the transportation networks, shut down power to manufacturing,
All those things worked without electricity back then. They didn’t use power on farms back then. Transportation requires fuel though, which is indeed a energy resource. Manufacturing was simply a more time taking task without modern machines.
Causing permanent damage to your eyes through working in the dark with no artificial light sources
Who said it has to be artificial light sources? The way you’re closing your mind to EVERYTHING I’m saying shows that you must deeply hate any kind of input from a Conservative, just as much as you claim I hate technological growth, interconnectivity of nature^, medical care. I don’t hate any of those things. I think we need to expand technological growth. I’m not fond of this Wendelstein device, but other means I am perfectly happy to see used. I was simply proposing some creative ideas to counter the energy problem, which included going without electricity.

We should maybe talk about that in another thread.

And Hooligan, nice chart. However I was mentioning how those people were physically stronger. Combine their lifestyles(not diets) with our modern health knowledge, we would be somewhere. Though granted, if we simply want to get the average person stronger while maintaining our modern health standards, I have just an idea that would work. Though I would much rather post that in a new thread. ^When did I ever express hatred on that?

I’ve questioned this devices benefit to mankind, of which I’ve received criticism for, but while bringing up other questionable solutions that I felt would solve the same thing while never stating my exact opinion on this Wendelstein 7+ Plasma Device.

Some of the propositions which I brought were solar energy. “Won’t help”. Well, it’ll at least satisfy the energy interests of such homes, while lessening CO2 output of such homes. Then we could maybe concentrate the main energy efforts towards industrialization. Stan Wise puts out that I seem to be oblivious to many peoples need for electricity, and that I seem to. Without “medicines and current technology” we would have a lot less people as too many would have died out. I am really just thinking of people in the 18th century, who, the alive people, did just fine without “medicines and current technology”. I simply was proposing that we live like them. We’ll almost completely reduce the C02 output, which will prevent Global Warming from ever happening. With our current health knowledge and what we CAN do without “medicines and current technology”, we’ll have the same diet and basic health as people now, while being the same muscular build those people had, hence lowering obesity. Unfortunately, not all of “us” today are fit to live like they did three hundred years ago. Too many people simply wouldn’t have made it past infancy, as many couldn’t back then . I still think, from a preppers standpoint alone, learning how to live without modern comforts is a good idea. Though that is just the prepper side of me, and it comes from a completely different topic. On the concept of fuel wars for the last drops of oil, I simply find that point to be unrealistic. I’m not saying fuel wars altogether are unrealistic. It’s the science fiction idea that only a few gallons are left, and here we are still fighting just to secure that. If oil becomes that much of a blood bath to get hands on, I’m sure people will lose interest in even using it. I hope by then we’ve already found other energy options. You see, I’m not opposed to the finding of other sources. I’ all for looking for other energy options. It’s a good idea. It’s a wise and necessary idea. However as of now I’m not stating my opinion on Nuclear Fission Plasma or whatever it’s called.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Black Students: "Give us separate but equal segregated dorms!!"

I say, let them have their own dorms. Just as long as they understand that it is indeed a form of segregation.

The worries though, is that these black students will feel more privileged than they really are and will act violent towards the whites. And when they fight back, they’ll say they " started it ".
The same worries I can say, apply to gender segregation in College campuses. The girls, as natural, will feel superior and privileged owning their own dorms. In public they’ll still act oppressed, when really the jokes on them.

Kind of hard giving someone their own place of self power without issues of pride. If this persons mature, such a personal space is really good. Prevents them from bothering other people. It’s just when they’re immature the issue may only get worse.

I would have died without the electricity that powered the laproscopy machine that saved my life.

Technophobia is another way of saying “hey look, my health privilege is showing.”

I was meaning as a species we wouldn’t have died out, as we’ve existed for centuries and millennium without it. And Vika, when I said Electricity, I was referring to the modern electric comforts of today, such as Light Bulbs, Computers, cell phones. I was trying to ridicule the man for saying that this is on par with landing on a Moon. People taking what I say the wrong way, no wonder people don’t like me here " as by that point the pressures to use a newly commissioned powerplant to help meet society’s needs for power would be more appealing than using that newly commissioned plant to provide the power necessary for high energy experiments to find better powersources. " If we get to that point, I would hope people would be mature enough to let it be used for testing. We need to learn to go without power for a few months, something many people today can’t stand the though of. Either that, or let’s start getting used to using Solar Panels on top of our roofs. Self Reliance would really fix this issue.

Technically, any energy source is a waste of time and “money”. We don’t need electricity to survive, we were fine without it. We could spread news, get along with each other and get our food without these modern comforts. So no, I wouldn’t say this is a huge achievement for mankind, on “par with landing on the Moon”, since this device doesn’t say or prove anything about our species’ capabilities.

This device could be a useful energy alternative that doesn’t release any ’Harmful" gases into the atmosphere. I would only approve though, if this system was only put in the hands of private individuals. I feel this is too much a waste of time to completely replace our current energy options. We need to focus on medicines or improving current technology more than some theoretical power source.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Mass sexual assaults in Germany

Originally posted by Kasic:
The Liberal media tries to cover up the Sexual Terrorism all across Europe, saying “OH NO! Those are Europeans! Not Syrians!”

No it doesn’t. IF you want to make somewhat questionable heated accusations, you’d only be justified in saying that they’re trying to put in perspective the number of attacks in relation to the high number of immigrants, which some (please, I don’t mean all. I don’t want this to go off in that unrelated direction) feminists might see as rape apology. I certainly haven’t heard of or seen any serious allegations that there’s a cover up of the assaults.

I seriously doubt that immigrants are sexually assaulting women in Europe significantly more than the native population, and that a higher rate of reporting due to the women not fearing social resistance or retaliation since the group they’re accusing is not liked is the cause of this perception. That and confirmation bias – has anyone actually compared the rates? I feel like if there was hard evidence that the assault rate was higher among immigrants it would be headline news.

Kasic, let’s move this conversation over here.

And it almost has been headline news. I do remember reading somewhere that one of the major News reporters or channels in this country was trying to deny any of the rapists are Syrian.

“I seriously doubt that immigrants are sexually assaulting women in Europe significantly more than the native population,” In Olso, Norway, a high percentage of the captured rapists were “Immigrants from a non-western background.” That seems to imply that either Immigrants in general are raping, or Syrian refuges are horny. In Germany, they’ve been having much more reports of rape than ever. Either Syrian or not, there’s a problem over in Europe.

Water wars are more realistic than a fuel war. Because people can go without driving their car.
People can’t go without quenching their throats.
However I think we should look at more ways to purify water. We in the United States and Europeans really are blessed. We don’t have to worry on a regular basis the issues of thirst.
As to making that a reason people hate us, I don’t see it all too way. Yes, it’s a reason they could hate us. But listening to what some of their leaders have to say, it really is just our Christianity.
In short, water is a small issue for these wars and politics right now. But in the future it could become a huge problem. We need to look at better and simpler ways to purify water, even Ocean water. Why haven’t we done that by now?

This is all an interesting theory. Though it seems to have been conceived to make an even bigger moral issue out of Global Warming.
I see how Global Warming could be causing this. Lack of resources, Migrate, get violent.
But to say all the troubles in the Middle East is being caused by water, that sounds like crap. I highly doubt the Palestinians are boming Israel all trying to get their water. Getting water could be causing some political issues in those Middle Eastern countries, but overall they all hate the Jews.

The number as to why 43 Percent of Republicans think Obama’s a muslim, is simply because they hate him. When you hate someone, of course you’re often come up with “delusional” or nonsense things to say about them.
If there’s any “delusional” argument I’m making, I’m open to any truth there might be.

As for “Deceiving the people”, I found the Liberal media does a far better job at that than any Libertarian or Conservative radio show I’ve listened to. The Liberal media tries to cover up the Sexual Terrorism all across Europe, saying “OH NO! Those are Europeans! Not Syrians!” Conservatives then, seem to hang on to a reality of nonsense for someone or a group of people they hate, while Liberals try to cover up something to try and prevent people from hating them. To me, report the goshdamn truth, and both Liberals and Conservatives will be more awake.

I would say the biggest reason most college graduates are democratic is because many college professors are biased in their teachings. Many people I know that go to college report that the teacher usually inserts their opinion when teaching an historical subject. “I believe the republicans did this out of this” or “You see here? It was the CONSERVATIVES that held us back!”
And many that come out democrat, say they got their info from their college professor.
As for this whole “Republicans are ignorant” assertion, who do you guys feel that way? I’ve met many democrats that are only educated by CNN or their neighborhood friendly Bernie Sanders. I look at both sides of the issue. I’m Conservative, but I’m not “Close-minded” like so many people assume.
