I'm pretty sure that "Chess GG" is from Australia. Lots of closed minded type are from there is.
I don't care where he's from, or if he pays his monthly 5 bucks to Erik, but I just snap when someone thinks he's better than anyone else, just because he has the nicer gimmicks. Maybe 'twat' wasn't really the appropriate choice of words after all, embittered, old stinker sounds more like it.
I remember reading "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand back in the fifties. I also read "Animal Farm" by George Orwell around the same time.
Put me down as a capitalist...apparently becoming an extinct minority here. I was raised quite poor. But whatever I've accomplished in life came from motivation, goal setting and plenty of hard work.
I do believe that we should help the truly disabled...those that can't physically or mentally work. But, we've become a nation where about 50% of the population doesn't pay taxes, 47 million are on food stamps, about 30 million of working age are on social security disability, etc.
This "something for nothing" attitude is sinking us.
And, if the OP wants premium features...try something novel and pay for them.
People are always coming out against food stamps and social security disability and welfare and so forth. But I have noticed that no one ever says anything against the banks and corporations that have been given billions of dollars by the USGOV because they are too big to fail. Not only are they too big to fail they are too crooked to fail.
Well, to the nutty OP or the dope who made a crack about Australia and such...I have nothing to say. I do not believe in arguing with idiots.
But to you DrFrank124c I would like to respond, and will, I need to take care of something and will return shortly.
Why do you call me 'nutty', or an 'idiot'? Is name-calling your last resort? Is your self-worth that low that you define yourself by your income? But I don't see the merit in hoping for a non-pejorative answer from you and wish you all the luck in the world with your upcoming kidney stones removal (or whatever the reason is you're so pissed).
Don't you find it ironic that you're using a US-based website as a platform for disseminating Anti-American propaganda, while simultaneously benefiting from the website's other services (namely chess) for free?
'Propaganda' apparently has taken on a meaning broad enough to include "sharing your perspective and relating your life experiences, as well as the those that have been related to you by your colleagues". That someone who apparently believes there are still 'Leftists' in the United States, and names Obama with them (even though he is clearly conservative according to the global barometer), would talk about 'propaganda' is highly ironic!
Ok, so maybe "propaganda" wasn't the best word, but you're missing my point. My point is, if I were using the services of a website based in another country for free, I wouldn't go around criticising that country or (in your case) making extremely pessimistic predictions about that country's future, from the perspective of an outsider. Rather I would be grateful that that country allows me to use their website free of charge, and stay away from political discussions about that country.
On the contrary, I hear a lot more people complaining about Wall Street and that kind of stuff than people on welfare who shouldn't be.
@ TheGambitKing and others like him: Bottom line is, if you don't live in the US, then you shouldn't be telling us what to do. Americans are capable of thinking for themselves and making our own political decisions, thank you.
And, I will probably be dead within 5 to 10 years.
Aw, c'mon Gramps, nowadays nobody needs to die anymore from such a trivial incision like a simple kidney stone surgery, you'll be just fine!
---> Americans: in charge of telling others that they better not tell Americans what to do, and that includes not telling them what they SHOULDN'T do, either...
---> Americans: violating Geneva Convention rights via interrogation of 'war criminals',
I agree with you on a lot of these, but terrorist leaders aren't even war criminals. They are not participating in an officially waged war. Perhaps the closest status would be 'pirate'. As such, according to the laws of nations, they can be hung (!) without trial.
Not according to the laws of our nation.And torturing civilian criminals is wrong also.
Chess GG is in the John Birch Society.
I dunno, but I heard somewhere that an extensive diet of raw vegetables and unskimmed goat milk might reduce the risk of kidney stones by up to 33% !!!
I'll be praying for you, pal, a nephrolithotomy should never be taken lightly, despite all the recent advancements in Modern medicine.
I haven't seen the John Birch Society since I was a kid. What happened to the American Opinion book stores?
I better stop teasing him now, I should know better. After all, isn't it stated in the Holy Writ:
Now this thread covers everything: Politics, religion, some remarks about Chess as well, slinging insults at each other ... I bet it'll be closed in the next 24 hours. But I'm crossing my fingers!
If you have kidney stones I suggest you look into alternative medical treatment before you let the doctors butcher you up. I seem to remember that you can pass a kidney stone if you drink lemon juice mixed with olive oil, but you should check it out on the internet before you try it at home.
I don't know what all this talk about kidney stones is all about (except inane stupidity and idleness), but I've already had my share of kidney stones and gall stones...and serious surgery in both cases. No...no...this is something for you young uns to face.
But, I do have some other serious health issues related to old age, including the big C. Now, I suppose you imbeciles do actually have something to mock me with. Have a good laugh. Commie bastards!
Hey, cheer up, maybe I'll even mow your lawn some time! :)
Neither of us is a Commie Bastard, as you put it so nicely, but you just seem to be one of the regular kind.
Ha ha ha! I am actually in a library, and laughed out loud, disturbing some individuals.
What are you doing at 3AM in a library? (You are right now in Belgium, correct?)
University libraries never close.
I'm 71, my mother and older brother died of cancer but I do not have cancer myself. I always use alternative health products whenever possible. I know that people my age take lots of medications, I do not take any medications and do not see doctors. For cancer both to prevent and cure I suggest you try broccoli and broccoli sprouts. I suggest you check out mercola.com. He has a video about alternative cancer cures. I followed his advice and reduced the amount of bread I eat and I have lost 25 pounds.
No one is laughing at your health problems. And I used to be interested in Marxist Leninism but I now see that they did not take into consideration biological factors and their way of thinking is therefore unscientific. The point I have been trying to make is that regardless of the economic system you believe it, communism, capitalism, Keynsian economics, Austrican economics or whatever, it is all futile. It is all vanity.
I love broccoli! A broccoli cure for anything sounds yummy!
