    Well you could still post your beautifully crafted apology here (maybe not naming the person directly) and it will move their heart?

    Shocking how a republican, from the republican party of fiscal responsibility, figured that it's fiscally responsible to make use of a free, renewable (for all intents and purposes forever) energy source. To create jobs to build and maintain this equipment. To have less (0) waste to dump into rivers and air and thus have a healthier population

    The main theory is that this poor man is suffering from insanity, especially supported by the fact that he said he would trust scientists over people who have no education on a given field.

    Caterpillar is a trade related stock. Hoes soybeans, a key factor in the negotiations. Somebody will be eating them, more will be needed: and farm equip is cool.
    Don’t concern myself with stock value. Look for good dividends. But that’s just me.
    Caterpillar are 7% down on the day!

    Any more tips?

    That is my point. Isn’t it logical to buy shares in a solid, proven, much-needed worldwide company when the price has DROPPED.?
    No.
    Over 24 hours ago you posted
    I hope everyone loaded up on trade-related stocks as I sugggested last week.
    So your recommendation was to "load up" on them LAST WEEK.

    They are DOWN 7% in a single day!

    And you think that is a good thing?!?!!?

    (Divegeester replied to Wolfgang59.)

    Divegeester, an admirer of Nigel Farage, has absurdly denied being right-wing.
    In fact, his posts overwhelmingly show his hatred of what he perceives as left-wing.
    Just because someone admires a right-wing politician for some abilities, doesn’t mean he’s right-wing.
    Obviously Divegeester is. Compared to me.
    Not through this statement though.

    There are some right-wing speakers who are extremely funny, witty and even charming. Not on this site, here’s they’re rabid, but in the real world.

    Doesn’t make me right wing to enjoy listening to them.

    A ban on trousers in the Australian Parliament would definitely have more comedy value than one on skirts.
    Agreed. Someone would do something just to make the point. 😀

    Seriously, why do women have to worry about dress codes anyway? In the corporate world here the norm is a businesslike jacket-skirt or jacket-pants combination looking very much like what corporate men wear. The Parliament is not a place for nose-rings, see-through tops or budgie smugglers, it's a workplace.

    Aww, libertarians, how cute. The magic of "everything will sort itself out if you just don't look at it funny"

    Yes, renewable energy shouldn't get subsidies, once it establishes itself. But you need to invest into new tech before it can stand on it's own. You also need to realize the difference between subsidies and a government choosing to actively phase out dirty energy like coal, gas, oil. Free market would dictate that the best offer would win but what is best right now might not be best in the future.


    "No regulations" is the same hilarious talking point libertarians are so rightfully mocked for. No regulations won't stop a company from dumping toxic sludge into rivers or filling the air with pollutants. No regulations won't stop a company from using asbestos to line everything.

    Real conservatism means finding the pentagon toilet seats that cost 500$ and making sure you get cheaper toilet seats from now on and only as many as you need. Real conservatism means cutting redundant programs but not cutting every safety net a citizen has and let him fend for himself.



    That being said, i only found libertarian talking points on that site you provided and i am not going to spend hours looking up absolutely everything about them. If you have in mind a specific proposition they are supporting, we can discuss it.

    This was exactly where I was going several posts ago and why it is useless for us to object to one another's factions fundraising and expenditures.

    ... And I think the Left's obsession over Russia & cheering on Mueller is weird.

    ... And I didn't make a thread about Soros.

    I've just been watching thread after thread of people beating to death this horse.
    I find it almost incredible that you are trying to say a private person or organization publicly trying to convince other people their ideas are correct is the same thing as a foreign government clandestinely interfering in another country's electoral process by theft and fraud.

    I have them ready to show you. But before I do, can you or someone kindly tell me why the networks or Schumer or Obama or NYT or anybody of substance never say ONE thing about Trumps accomplishments? You need not ask me what they are: there about 80 clearly defined, so if you have missed it, see them on google and please let me know what you think.
    As to your questi ...[text shortened]... now that with the 800 point drop today, tomorrow is one of the best buying opportunities in history.
    Everyone of substance thinks Trump is a moron, which might go some way towards explaining why they aren't praising him or his non-existent accomplishments. To Trump's credit, however, his laziness and incompetence have thus far prevented him from being as poor a president as Reagan or Bush Jr.

    Not if they are savvy. . I didn’t lose any money on my purchase because I Bought, I didn’t Sell.
    So buying stock and watching it fall 7% is savvy?

    You should be educating fund-managers!

    Now to the one that seeks to judge me, you are causing offense against my brothers and sisters in Christ because when you criticize me in conjunction with my church, you are criticizing my family.
    You're in trouble now because I'm putting you at the top of my prayer list. God will deal with you, but not like me. God is so very kind and gentle and infinitely patient.
    He gonna get you boy! 😉
    In church and with your family you are what you do; in here SecondSon, in the online world, you are what you post. My posts are aimed at you and you alone; if you choose to come here and put about your blowhardiness and subsequently try to hide within or behind a list of your church’s congregational persons-in-need, then that is a reflection of your character, not my posting

    Apparently I’m not as easily impressed as the other contributors to your self-serving eulogy of your churchy deeds, or by your showy promises of prayer which are in reality, thinly veiled threats of how your version of God will “deal with me” and “get me”.

    If you want to call me as you see me then that’s absolutely fine with me and totally acceptable. I’ll do the same, but without the reinforcement of posting my Sunday résumé or calls to my God to “deal with” my forum detractors.

    [b]"They are not lies, those words are my honest perspective of you. You come across as a guy who’s been in his “church” a long time, possibly and elder, but more likely leader/overseer of the youth group. I get this impression by you turning up here and pontificating on scripture like you are talking to a bunch of green youngsters at your church who all think your pompous ...[text shortened]... but not like me.

    If you are a Christian who commands respect in your church community, as you seem to have portrayed yourself to be in this OP, then that's good. It makes the apparent effect of online disinhibition on your forum persona all the more fascinating.
