      So maybe the IFF just broke? We don’t need another passenger liner accidentally shot down like last time, during the ‘Tanker War’

      I don’t believe in coincidences, especially when they happen in ‘near War’ situations or when operations happen near a contested border.

      @ eaglesoars:
      Read the intro and ALL of the debates back and forth. Spirited debate most of which was polite and well thought through. There were a couple of morons. Aren’t there always?

      One looked to be a 20 year old snowflake with attitude and nothing behind it. The other was a pro-CCP troll most likely from Building 101 in Shanghai. 🙂 The rest has worthwhile opinions that were well argued. Some clever stuff in there.

      BUT the 3 major articles are hiding behind a Pay-Wall.

      Groan!

      I need somebody to talk me off the ledge.

      If you’ve seen any of the Project Veritas piece on Google (now removed from most sites, surprise!), you won’t be surprised to learn that these people have no intention of abandoning their totalitarian pursuits.

      Mark Zuckerburg wants his own digital currency

      There’s a knitting site that is purging Trump supporters on the grounds of ‘white supremacy’.

      Bezos is trying to corner the grocery market

      Am I the only one connecting these dots and thinking perhaps elections won’t be enough? Glad I’m as old as I am, because by the time they can deny me health care – and perhaps food delivery (too old to drive)- since due to my wrong think they’ve frozen my digital assets that were forcibly converted from US$ – I’ll be ready to go.

      Oh, and in case you were wondering, Justin Trudeau actually IS the love child of Margaret and Fidel. Look at the pair of photos on the lower right.

      Get rid of the monarchy!

      https://www.apnews.com/63af8fd196c34a8dbe279c305a25aa58

      that blockquote thing ( I am tired )

      LONDON (AP) — The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s home was renovated with 2.4 million pounds ($3.06 million) of taxpayers’ money, royal accounts revealed Tuesday.

      Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s residence near Windsor Castle, called Frogmore Cottage, underwent major work to turn five properties back into a single home for the couple and their baby son Archie. Fixtures, fittings and furnishings at the Victorian-era structure were paid for by the royal couple.

      The figures were part of the release of the royal family’s accounts, which showed that the British taxpayers spent 67 million pounds ($85.2 million) on the monarchy during 2018-19, a 41% increase on the previous financial year.

      “The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation in line with our responsibility to maintain the condition of the occupied royal palaces estate,” said Michael Stevens, the keeper of the Privy Purse, who is responsible for the monarchy’s accounts.

      “The building was returned to a single residence and outdated infrastructure was replaced to guarantee the long-term future of the property,” he said. “Substantially all fixtures and fittings were paid for by Their Royal Highnesses.”

      Anti-monarchy campaign group Republic questioned why so much money was spent on the renovations at a time when public services are under financial pressure.

      “It is particularly galling that they’re allowed to get away this whilst public services need money,” said group spokesman Graham Smith.

      Overall, spending rose primarily because of higher levels of expenditure devoted to critical renovations for Buckingham Palace in London. The iconic structure is in the second year of a 10-year project after a Treasury report concluded the building’s infrastructure was in danger of a catastrophic failure.

      The total Sovereign Grant, which funds Queen Elizabeth II and her household’s official expenses, was 82.2 million pounds, or 1.24 pounds per person in the U.K. That figure includes 15.2 million pounds ($19.3 million) set aside for future phases of the palace renovation.

      End of blockquote thing.

      Here’s a hit list of people killing the planet. That is EXACTLY what it is, a hit list.

      Names and Locations of the Top 100 People Killing the Planet

      “The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses.” – Utah Phillips

      Just 100 companies are responsible for more than 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions since 1988. The guys who run those companies – and they are mostly guys – have gotten rich on the backs of literally all life on Earth. Their business model relies on the destruction of the only home humanity has ever known. Meanwhile, we misdirect our outrage at our neighbors, friends, and family for using plastic straws or not recycling. If there is anyone who deserves the outrage of all 7.5 billion of us, it’s these 100 people right here. Combined, they control the majority of the world’s mineral rights – the “right” to exploit the remaining unextracted oil, gas, and coal. They need to know that we won’t leave them alone until they agree to Keep It In The Ground. Not just their companies, but them. Now it’s personal.

      This is in the form of a map.

      One company is in Pittsburgh. The font is too small for me to see, so here’s the underlying report.

      It appears to be Consol Energy, HQ in Canonsburg PA. That’s South Hills (where I grew up) across the river from downtown. I can’t make out the person named on the map, Nicholas somebody?

      Oh… and Buckingham Palace and even little Frogmore Cottage do not belong to the Royal Family.

      They are historical buildings are being preserved for the nation. We just let the Royal Family live there.

      British taxpayers spent 67 million pounds ($85.2 million) on the monarchy during 2018-19,

      So, the biggest tourist attraction in the world cost $85 million to run last year?

      And brings in billions of pounds in tourism.

      I am OK as a British Subject paying £1.24 per year for the greatest tourist attraction on earth

      The monarchy cost per subject is one pound 24 pence.

      We’ll trade you all the former presidents we have to still support for Her Majesty, ok?

      Actually, I saw one report that said the monarchy is self-supporting as the Sovereign Grant, which replaced the Civil List, returns about 75% to the treasury. Not clear how that works

      I read the Daily Mail every day and the comments are always a hoot. A lot of people bitch about what they think the royals cost them, but the fact that the tax structure is confiscatory – not a peep. Resentment of the wealthy or well-to-do is rampant.

      Nice conspiracy theory. Unfortunately, the child in the picture isn’t Justin. One of his younger brothers. AS well, Margaret never met Fidel until after Justin was born. One of those time line things that kill the idea. That being said, the similarity between their looks is rather frightening.

      Just the opposite, I’m afraid. She’s living proof that there is no honesty in what should be the most pristine of our institutions. They’re all on the take for something or other. She’s been going thru this for years. No one in DOJ has the balls/spine/honor to pick that building up, turn it upside down and shake it until all the crud spills out.

      It’s very difficult to strike out at the person who signs your paycheck. We all need food, shelter, clothing, etc. It would be great if Trump could fire a few thousand government lawyers. Then simplify the tax code, then fire a couple thousand tax collectors. Rinse and repeat until more Government workers got trained to do something useful. Set up training on how to start a small business. Get mentors who have PROVEN skills. Government work stifles creativity for the most part. Send people to Singapore or South Korea to get trained. A month ago I would have said Hong Kong too. Governments are huge regressive institutions in an era of rapid change.
