I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. drill ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die along with the oil industry

Amen

Change will come..it has too and not just in the US the ongoing collapse of the EU is testament of that

Nationalism is what happens next...

With respect, El Nikko, I think Socialism is their goal.  It has been explained on here many a time, but Nationalism of the third reich variety is not something most Americans will allow to happen, hence the guns attitude; the only Nationalism we will tolerate, if I may speak for my "comrades", is the type that means we need to take care of our home (U.S.) before we allow our resources and wealth to extend to the neighbors (non-U.S.).

Man Brilliantly Defuses Argument By Telling Wife To Calm Down

U.S.—Local man Paul Jensen is being heralded as a genius and hero after he got the brilliant idea to defuse an argument with his wife by suggesting that she "calm down."

Paul and Rachel were arguing over finances when the idea came to him to just ask her to relax and settle down a bit. He was baffled that he had never thought of this before, as it's such a surefire tactic. He also couldn't believe no one else had ever tried this in the history of mankind since it's such a great idea.

"Why don't you just relax, babe?" said the man in a stroke of genius. "Calm down. Take a chill pill. Settle down. Take a deep breath. Count to ten. Let's be rational here."

The tactic had the instant and immediate effect of his wife calming down, exactly as he had intended. He knew she had calmed down because she immediately threw a pillow at him and left the room, slamming the door behind her -- instantly ending the argument and all of Paul's worries.

"Slamming the door? Oh, that's just a little inside joke between me and her," he told reporters as things broke in the next room. "When she slams the door, what she's really saying is, 'I love you.' Classic Rachel."

Haha. Oooh, this is a fun one! Yeah, men actually are faster. I agree with the Mayor. A man will go into the store, go directly to wants he wants, get it, and be out in 5 minutes.

Now, he'll only have bought what he was hungry for at that moment, and only enough for himself and maybe one other person... And, he'll have neglected to pair it with anything, like, perhaps a vegetable or a beverage other than beer. And there won't be anything else to eat for the rest of the week.

But look at all the time saved, right? 😁

Except you're completely wrong about the 'debate'. I'm fortunate enough to live in a country (South Korea) where the correct scientific course of action was taken, and we're now almost Covid free. Instead of muppets on the streets shouting about their civil rights in the middle of an epidemic, people are actually out and about and being free.

Yep your right there men dont normally do the shopping thing the same as the ladies, were on a mission, planned before hand, product preselected, perhaps some light browsing if in a tool shop, I loathe Supermarkets but at least I go inside and happily push the trolley oblivious to what its being filled with, its painful but I can force a smile. Many of my kind sit in the carpark listening to the radio or surfing motorcycles online or drag boats things of that nature, were cave men at heart, sorry its just our make up. I don't fight it anymore its not worth the grief.

Put me in a junk market or bike shop and turn full circle...

If you saw the coverage DT never said that, it was pushed by a reporter who projected the injecting of detergents as well as other things in the same question, if there was ever a loaded statement or question that was it. If I was Trump I would tell the medial all of them to GTF and they are no longer 'GUESTS" in the white house. US media is the laughing stock of the modern world, they don't realise it but each question and then heavily edited sound bight etc is making people turn off the TVs. For posting this you should be sent to the back of the class and assume the position with Cone in hand...... You know the cone with D for ??????

Do we really think that Donnie is that dumb that he would advise injecting disinfectants, this deserves some clarification, as it ties in with my Does POTUS know the oil Industry thread- Of course he doesn't - He may come across to most as a dumbass but he is the man at the top, he speaks his mind and then others filter it to hopefully come with a resultant which includes the sum of all the parts. 

If anyone thinks that injecting toilet cleansing products into your bloodstream is a good thing, then go with your gut one less deadwood to worry about, we dont really need these people around us, they don't bring much to the table. But CNN are getting some mileage out of it, Dr Sanjay Gupta looks worried, he cares you know......

James watch the video from Fox Business News at around minute 18 is the presentation from Homeland security and Trump comments in it around minute 25.

Later Trump lies about it and say he was being sarcatic.  Not in the video posted below, I could not believe it when I saw it.

And as far as any idiot knowing this is a bad idea, the President did not seem to realize what a dumb idea it was when he said it.

Also for those that prefer Fox News rather than the liberals at Fox Business

see at 1:28:50 for start of Trump's comments, also around 1:29:30 for disinfectant comment.

One can try to claim he did't say what he said, but this is a fact that cannot be denied.

Valerie,

If one watched and was paying attention he said:

A question that probably some of you are thinking of if you’re totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So, supposedly we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it. And then I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting, right? And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that so that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me. So, we’ll see, but the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute. That’s pretty powerful. Steve, please.

and really what is the problem with that? It's Trump speak anyone who knows how he talks can understand it, he talks off the cuff which is a benefit not a negative unless people want to go back to robitic moronic politicians.

I'm not saying you imply that (not at all) but I've spoken to a bunch of people that all think they are clever and are telling me Trump is telling people to drink bleach...these clever people didn't even listen to what he said!

Piers Morgan is now crying that Trump unfollowed him on twitter....becasue Morgan is a piece of sh*t who was the editor of a newspaper that accused British soldiers of beating Iraqis...something that was proven to be false.

What a mess

 Yeah right. 

"Kids, you go to your bedroom. Why? Because the President is speaking on tv"

And only adults "well, you know what I  saying" can understand him. 

El nikko, really? 

Who are you? Where do you live? I am curious.

You are correct, he did not say we should have people drink bleach he said, "And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that ..."  so the suggestion was to inject disinfectant for a cleaning, perfectly reasonable.  :)

(My comment 1 of 2)

Simple timeline for you to consider.  Your mileage may vary.

1) War on drugs  (unwinnable)

2) War on terror  (unwinnable)

3) War on Global Warming  ( *sigh* )

4) War on Panic-demic  (unwinnable)

Each of these items in the timeline has a very specific thing in common:  "voluntarily" giving up rights and freedoms in exchange for a false sense of security.

See how that works?

Also, I refuse to apologize for being a pain in the butt about my views.

I think we have won the war on terror to a large extent, and are winning the war against global warming. The economic cost of the pandemic, however, makes the rest seem trifling. On the other hand, seeing US meat processors close down due to covid deaths of workers is very troubling. I reckon they should be given suits like the army has for chemical warfare. I do agree that rights and freedoms are under threat, that to me is just as worrying as the economic collapse that is underway. My grandfather fought the Germans (British Navy), and would be turning in his grave right now if he could see what has become of the world. Everything his generation fought for is disappearing fast.
