It's not you, Ray, It's the thread. If it were just you, you'd have heard from me personally by now. Relax. It's the conversation, not just you. Deep

Team, I'm closing this thread. It's bringing no good. Just hurting others, and that's not good. Please contact the Mods if you feel this was not a good decision. But I really think we need a break. It's spring. Don't hurt each other so much, any more... Deep

I will shut this thread down unless the behavior improves. And I will take individual actions to address member behaviours. Please allow 8 hours... folks... it takes time for behavioral changes... :) This thread is a travesty in personality conflicts and just individual meanness. It should never have happened... Deep

This is not a warning. I will issue warnings and ban people after consultations. Individually. This thread makes me sad. It was directed at a person. Not a viewpoint or even an worldview. But at a person. Why? It makes me ashamed. Has the level of discourse descended to the level that it become a one-on-one or many-on-one or such arguments? Gang Wars based on ideologies? We are better t

I don't see this as a fair thread. One person is being targeted instead of an issue or viewpoint. Seems like ganging up. I think it's below the levels of intellectual debate this forum was designed for. It is unjustifiable. I would comment on the various issues, but it would not be right. I this were framed differently, I would. I don't thing it is right to hit a person. As opposed to her or h

I agree with that. The talk in Asia is about war between China and India, given Chinese aggression about territorial border disputes. I will not call it assertiveness, but aggression... there is a distinct difference. Assertiveness consists of "Seek first to understand, then to be understood." Agression is "Seek to submit others." Anyway, the talk in the military circles i

"The current problem with China is the mood of the population of China, which has just recovered from about two centuries of chaos and being victimized by outside powers. The tradition of thinking of themselves as the center of civilization contributes to this, but is not really the cause of this current nationalism. Many ordinary Chinese citizens see a need to restore their "rightful&q

China just voted to abolish term limits for the President, with sweeping, unchallengeable unilateral powers to the President's office.This effectively makes Xi the President for life with no checks and balances... since the voting in the politburo is not by secret ballot, which makes it unlikely that anyone will vote against an incumbant with sweeping powers, unless they have a death wish.

I deliberately let my opening post remain vacant and open. Wanted to listen. This is about Gun Ownership laws, or specifically the 2nd Amendment in the US Constitution. This is not a rant, but just thoughts buzzing in my head. I know the very topic is anathema to many who will read this. To be clear, I’m not against gun ownership. I understand the reason and the application of guns. I’ve ha

Thomas, I accept your apology. You were skating on thin ice when it comes to the GHMB code of conduct. I chose not to go there. Having said that, I don't have thin skin. We can have an argument, but it should be offline of GHMB, so it does not affect others here. Thanks, Deep

Thomas, You do realize how offensive and insulting your response was, right? "So my response stands; "When you want to be historical (factual... aka get deep) and not hysterical (emotional... aka Deep), then come back." Because, yes, I do know you better than that and you are better than that... Unfortunately, you've not been you for some time and this newest thread is a per

Thomas, I'm being clear. I wish to discuss the 2nd amendment and the original reasons why it was included in the constitution. And why it is relevant today. I thought that was obvious. Get over that ego. Stick to the point, please. Any deviations will be considered personal and facetious. Get over that ego. Chill... Deep

This is a very good move. The US has been taken for ride and milked for billions in aid by a deep state that coddles, nurtures, funds and trains those who attack it. Of course, it will increase China's and Saudi grip on Pakistan who will turn to them for money, with its economy in the toilet... but, money is fungible. Lives are not. They choose to hunt with the hounds and run with the rabbits at

Let's try a thought experiment, or mind-tool. List down the attributes in a leader you'd support and vote for, perhaps even risk your life for if push came to shove. It's okay to list planks and principles, from environmentalism and economic conservatism to personal qualities like intergrity, honesty, transparency, and vision. Let's not get into partisan sniping on this. Let's contribute

Okay, I will engage in a conversation since your response was not the usual one-liner. I agree that Israel's right to exist should be honored and acknowledged by EVERY party in the ME. Including Iran and the Saudis (although the Saudis have long secretly opened their airspace to Israel for airstrikes on Iran...but that's a different story.) Israel does have the right to exist. I greatly admire

Dane, there is a 3,200 year gap between the first Kingdom of Israel and the present Democracy of Israel, right? The roots are deep, yes, but their are no connections politically between then and now. We can cite these roots until we are raw in our throats, but they really don't hold water citing history. By your logic, the Chinese can claim much of SE Asia, and India can claim much of Tibet, S

You asked about Muslims having Mecca, Christians having Rome, etc. So why not the Jewish people having Jerusalem? My personal view is that the Jews might or should have Jerusalem as their spiritual center. Why is it so hard? Let me list the ways. Now, the difference lies between being an administrative center and a spiritual one... the difference between Riyadh and Mecca, or that between Tel A

This article argues that 'silver bullet' theories about civilizational collapse are delusional and oversimplifications of history. Civilizations never collapse, but theocracies and monarchies or principalities or nation-states do. A civilizational collapse can rarely be pinned to climate change or a cataclysm, but more perhaps to a breakdown in political or social structure that are caused by hum

These 4 countries are starting to form a security "diamond" quadrilateral. Not sure I can call it an Indo-Pacific NATO yet, but the sketchboard is active. I can post links, but they're easy to find on Google news. The question is, is it aimed at China? Deep

This has been discussed before, but it seems like a a good time now too. Since we're discussing it in the Senate. The present system of taxing incomes is based on the premise that rich people make more, and therefore should pay more for the benefit of others. We tax income, assuming that fat cats have lavish lifestyles that they make by underpaying their workforces, and should have to pay more
