    exactly
    i have a sister who lives paycheck to paycheck and i guarantee if you gave her 500k she be living pc to pc within 2 years max
    a lot of people have no idea how the dream is supposed to work
    work hard, deny yourself everything you want, save, invest, repeat
    no one is supposed to get anything for nothing but thats certainly changed
    to the point that if you point it out you're called all sorts of names

    Kids aren't a minority.
    They are THE minority.
    The original protected class.
    The first ones whose rights had to be fought for by human civil and social justice rights activists.

    It's not about gay candidates.
    Only the fringes really cares about that at the end of the day. Just like Diablo said.
    But more folks that are cool with gays and gay marriage still get upset at the glorification or exploitation of a child's sexuality.
    It's normal for us here out west to see it.
    But not everywhere else.
    And the fact that it's normal for us kinda disgusts them.

    Go west young man!
    That saying simply means progress.
    And the west is the best because it's also the end. The final door.
    Or as the final door is called in persian... Babylon.
    Babylon is not a country for old men.
    Old men get more conservative as they age.
    And that's not a good thing in general.
    Because it's a young man's world.
    Always been.
    Regardless of age or time.
    The next generation always wins.
    They always get in the gate.
    By hook or by crook.
    Unless you are an old man.

    Or unless this generation really is the start of the millennial kingdom.
    But then the church people and the global warming people can hold hands and sing kumbaya while spreading the crown virus to each other waiting for Trump to nuke the ice caps just so Jesus can come back with his band and rock them all to Oblivion or Beyond.

    But Anywhoo...
    Still have hope for Tulsi and Yang.
    Yeah Yang walked away.
    He did the math.
    And the math says that his type of thinking and even speaking style and personality but more importantly his character is gonna be missed.
    Then the math will be right again.
    And the Dems are gonna need someone who can give you the right answer quickly.
    And who always shows his work when asked for a proof.
    Unlike almost everyone else in this business.
    That's why the people and even the party will pull him back in. Just when he thought he was out.

    Your posts are quite the adventure, rube. They have it all, ups, downs, twists & turns. I'd rate this post as better than Season 8 of Game of Thrones, but not quite as good as Season 7.

    Wow...stilted, narrow minded, provincial thinking in the most part that taken element by element, is the underlying problems of the system currently.
    Sprinkling it with undeniable, obvious "self evident "bits here and there doesn't hide the tunnel vision aspects of it.
    OBEY.

    If you're able to criticize it that strongly, you must have been able to make sense of it.
    So you're doing better than me.

    I thought the post was pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
    Well in comparison to other times when Ive made rambling posts tinged with a little emotion.

    Season 7 was ok. It had its moments and definitely left us clinching our armrests wanting more, which only highlights the failure that was Season 8. But yeah, for what it was, Season 7 delivered enough.

    Had a guy discussion ( one gay chick, too) about who on GoT looked best naked...John Snow , of course is the overwhelming winner, so excluding him.
    The consensus was Danerys, the Dragon mom, by a wide margin. I guess petite, really pretty blondes have most fun. Until stabbed by their lover.
    But for me Lena Heady ( Cersei) was top of the pops. Not the naked walk of shame, shame, ( which she didn't do), but when she gets out of bed, from an incest boink, to answer the door.
    There were others, too, that were great...what say you? or, who say you?

    For the sake of giving everyone a fair chance, I might have to go back and review all the nude scenes. Danerys stands out the most, walking naked through fire is hard to forget - without further review that's who I'd vote for. Don't sleep on Khal Drogo either. Natalie Dormer (Queen Margaery), Talisa (Robb's wife - although I heard she had a body double), and I don't think Ros gets her just due. The Sand Snake who seduces Bronn and Massandei (Greyworm's crush) should get mentions as well. Really no wrong answer IMO except for Shae (not because the actress isn't beautiful, but that's the one character where I couldn't stand the acting) and maybe Melisandre (the red woman) without the necklace.

    Game Of Thrones is one of the best TV shows I've ever watched. The final season, Season 8, was bad though. It felt extremely rushed and amateurish from a story perspective. That said, the acting and effects were still top-notch that season. I'd say it's worth a go if you've never seen it, but if you aren't hooked 3 or 4 episodes in then you're probably not going to get hooked.

    I dont know Blue, it really is how you look at it.
    But old is death and life is young.
    Like the difference between sucking and fucking.
    Or exhaling and breathing.
    One is death, the other life.
    These are basic concepts.
    Not literal ones.
    I am not talking out of class here.
    You will find this in the bible and in many other texts.
    Including non religious types.
    It is not an age thing at all.

    Now some other bits may have been obtuse.
    But im sure some of you here understand.
    Babylon is Babel and that word in Persian means Gate of God.
    The same word was used as code by the Jews to mean Confusion.
    As in that babylonian old time religion/lifestyle is just a land of confusion with not much love to go round. Although its all about peace and love.
    Xerxes thought himself the god of this world remember.
    He wanted to bring peace and love to the planet.
    With swords and spears and steers and... well you know the rest.
    Im sure you saw 300.
    It was about the western Spartans vs the eastern Persians who descended from the first empire of Media. The Medes were able to use their own brand of propaganda to quickly rise from small group within the Eurasian empire when one of their sons became the first self styled King of Kings to actually try and conquer the known world.

    I was not trying to be confusing though.
    On the contrary.
    What is in the content of my post that was so bewildering though?
    The millennial kingdom part?
    That is a thing. It was a big deal for folks in the previous century.
    About Jesus Christ superstar coming down with his band of rock lords to usher in a new world order?
    Yeah that was a dream I had as a kid in church listening to When The Saints Come Marching In but wishing there was a heavy metal version. I still see that dream in my mind frequently.
    But you can look it up if you forgot about the concept of the spirit in the sky or the ghost riders the old cowboy used to talk about. They riding that millenium falcon.

    Was it about Yang and Tulsi?
    Because we know its going to be Bernie vs Trump.
    But who will be his running mate?
    Tulsi is who I think he will pick.
    Not someone like AOC.
    Certainly not Warren.
    And if not Tulsi then Yang makes the most sense.
    Who else from the field could help put him over the top with the segment of voters who voted for Trump but are disillusioned by his style.
    Not any of the senior citizens running.
    Yes because they are old. But don't trip.
    Bernie is old and has heart issues.
    Yang proved he can move the internet like Bernie does.
    And in a weird way since he is all about numbers and business and entrepreneurship but he is the most communist of all candidates.
    Wants to give everyone 1k a month.
    And his parents were born in China where the concept of big brother is not the government per se but a successful older mentor you respect and can get help from when you need it to better your situation.
    He can't run on the big brother thing here for obvious reasons.
    But the asian community who never NEVER votes may just turn out for one of their own.
    Specially since he wants to be everyone's big brother.
    And when I say that he may even reenter the race im not just pulling it out of my ass. I am pulling it out of my ear.

    Yang and Tulsi are both minorities and are both bold progressives with forward looking ideas instead of harping on the past or on the Don.
    Bernie knows this and they are his type of people.
    So yeah, things are inevitable blue.
    Just like rain when the weatherman says.
    You just prepare and bring an umbrella and a wide hat. And if you know whats best for you you will OBEY!
    That's Tulsi and Yang.
    Because even if the weatherman is wrong and its sunny all day.... you are still protected from the infrared and the ultraviolet if you just OBEY!

    Now if there is anything I said that you thought was offensive or controversial in my previous post then Im sorry man.
    Let me know what you wish me to clarify.
    I was not trying to be occult.
    Or funny or whatever.
    Yeah there was some attempt at a lighthearted moment with the way I characterized the frenzy over the corona virus pandemic.
    I made it a little bit over the top/end of the world.
    I will admit that part was a little glib.
    And that I framed the post as if it was a story.
    We all have our own distinct style.
    I sometimes can't help that.
    Specially if my health meter is low and im running out of hearts and I cant find the princess anymore no matter how many bombs I set off on the side of death mountain.
    So yeah, sometimes I get a little artsy fartsy.
    Its probably a self defense mechanism to keep me from actually putting my heart directly where my mouth is.
    But everything else was a post in earnest.
    As is this.

    so without reacting and just trying to sort out the truth this is my conclusion on the coronavirus
    between 95 and 98% survival rate
    the elderly and infirm as well as the babies are the ones dying although who knows since we only get the black plague propaganda
    it seems like every news story wants to blame it on trump while they scream about him not doing enough/not paying attn/laughing it off etc.
    the dow plummets 3600 pts as pelosi and gang point and criticize
    looks like a flu epidemic w the media and liberal fanning the flames in their gasping impeachment hopes of bringing down the man
    who gives a fuck about the economy or the way forward for american families this is about power
    for me it represents a buying opportunity
    and the weekend just slowed it down and set it up
    sooner or later the truth is going to come forward regardless of the incessant doomsday
    when the chickens run look the other direction
    thats where real money is made
