Are there any fundamental reasons why anybody in the United States should have to buy any  manufactured product from any other country?    I really cannot think of any.
Hmm. Are there any fundamental reasons why anybody outside the United States should have to buy any manufactured product from the US?
Only if their own country doesn't have the resources to make that product in country.

Dave, try this.
Mrs Widget-maker runs a factory in Missouri. Her factory specialises in making widgets. Her factory makes the finest widgets in the world. She has spent years developing special techniques and tools to make widgets, and has established an excellent supply chain to ensure that her factory can make widgets.

Are you suggesting that Mrs Widget-maker should only try to sell widgets in the US. That she should not seek to sell to other countries and make her potential market for widget sales as large as possible?
Everytime I see this thread I read it as "Brexit is out for lunch". :D
Keen, your mom is what, 75-80? What she thinks is not indicative of where the country is headed.


She could run for president
You're a tool ... AND an idiot.  But an interesting one nonetheless ... Mainly because you hold a PhD so it's fascinating to me how someone who holds a PhD can be such an idiot and a tool all at once.

Dave, try to get this PhD obsession under control, OK?  A PhD is simply what you get if you do some original research for a few years for minimal financial reward, and write it up, and it's deemed good enough to pass a PhD committee.

It's not a club.  It's not awarded for loyalty to some octohatter mafia.  It's just the meagre reward you get for doing research for a pittance for a few years.

If it means anything, in science, it means that you basically understand scientific methodology, and a great deal about one tiny corner of the world. 

It doesn't mean you know anything else, however much creationists tout PhD credentials in X as their authority to lay down the law on Y.

Yah, but Dave can't get one. Therefore...........Dave.
Vase cats are sure to be all the rage soon. Sustainable, cute, and tasty.  And no robot required to pull the vases across the landscape.

Better if you put them in the vase as kittens. Then they grow to fit the vase.
Politics and Current Events / Re: Removing Assad
(who happen to be trigger happy like all military),

I don't know that this is necessarily true.  A guy like Mattis can't be correctly described as "Trigger Happy."

I know this is a cheap response, but I can't help myself. He literally said, "It's fun to shoot some people" and "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet."

More seriously, he was and probably still is itching for confrontation with Iran.

Well, it is fun to shoot some people.  Doesn't make you trigger happy, any more than liberals creaming their jeans over "Punching Nazis!!" makes them violent thugs who are eager to fight.  Right? 

I'm just going to toss this out there. It really shouldn't be fun to shoot anyone, even if they deserve it and even if you have to do it.
Well yeah, but it is anyway.

What about nazis?
I know it's unfounded, but when I hear about conservatives interests in science books, including criminology (makes sense), medicine (makes sense) and geophysics (????), and when they mention that one of the "science" books conservatives may go for is "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design" by Jonathan Wells, I can't help but wonder what their criteria is.

Just wondering if there's a bunch of flud geology in the list.
Climate change "skeptic" laughs at Flat Earthers.

Isn't the fact that other countries spend less on their health system, yet still have universal coverage an adequate reality check on the maths?
Of course some animals are going to die / get lost if I'm experimenting with new (better) ways of managing them.  Don't like it, but it's a necessary evil.  The anticipated gain is greater than the short term loss.

what the fuck is wrong with you people

I believe he just spilt some Straya all over the place. :D

see merkel knows what's up

would be hilarious if the trump admin turned out to be run by our first (acting) woman president

Yabbut, Pence won't have lunch with her.
By the way, Lizzie ... you and Damitall (and DaveG?) got your country back today ... and you can thank Nigel Farage ... in turn, Nigel Farage is thanking Steve Bannon and Breitbart ... for helping them win ...

He [Farage] took the opportunity to pay tribute to Breitbart News Network in general and former Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, now a leading figure within President Donald J. Trump's administration, in particular, for giving eurosceptic voices shut out by the establishment media a platform where they could speak to the public:

"One of the very important things that happened is, because we had the entire media against us, and not even willing to give us a fair hearing, I think when Bannon opened up the Breitbart office in London and began to give the arguments that I was making a fair hearing, and very quickly, as Breitbart does well, started to reach a very, very big audience. I think actually on this great Brexit day I have to say a personal thank you and tribute to Steve Bannon for having the foresightedness of doing that with Breitbart, and I'm extremely grateful."

Dave, don't speak about stuff you know jack shit about. Thx

But, but, but........then he wouldn't be Dave.
It's worth sacrificing a few thousand children to Make Russia Great Again.

I believe that is the Russian way.
I looked it up. 3 million per weekend at Mar a Lago.
The universe doesn't care about people's opinions.
How much is it for each weekend at Mar Al Lago?

Found it. 3 mill per visit.
I'd be interested in seeing him do 50 odd threads of such nature in the charred remains. :D
FX, imagine you're a terrorist, and your stupid posts here are terrorist attacks. How do we civilized people stop them happening?
So, we have the Allan Savory farming technique,
The Mark Shephard farming technique,
And the Rube Goldberg farming technique. :D
And hey, while your at it, explain to little Billy how you want to let millions of the same aassholes who kill and maim people regularly, into your city, and offer them all the benefits of civilization.  If he objects, just explain you can't tell which Muslim will try to kill you at the most unexpected time, and it would be wrong to let all the innocent good ones suffer just because some of them want to kill everyone you love.  And destroy all you hold dear.
At the most unexpected moment.
Jesus fucking christ
It was all fun and games until FX advocated for a religious war. :D

But flush afterwards
Please be good, please be good, please be good!!!

Has an very lol, "epic" poster.

Just watching the first one again. :D

Chris Pratt thinks it will be good. :D
On May 5th the greatest movie in the history of movies is coming. There has never been and will never again be a movie like this. Seriously. Ever heard of Citizen Kane? We're much better. Seriously. Our movie just tested at over one million points. Rotten tomatoes already has it at 234% fresh. #GotGVol2 will win every movie award AND about 39 Olympic gold medals in swimming, gymnastics, the skiiing event with the gun, x games, snowmobiling and everything. It will win the World Cup and about 7 super bowl rings, sorry TOM Brady. This movie will fry your brains and lift your spirits. James Gunn will be elected president of the world. They will add the faces of the guardians to Mount Rushmore for sure. We're gonna get a planet. May 5th will become a national holiday. Everyone will get pregnant. Candy will fall from the sky. Global warming will stop. Dinosaurs will come back to life. Which unlike some movies might tell you, is actually a really good thing. Because they won't flip out and kill people instead they'll be your awesome pets. So basically get your tickets as soon as you can. Don't be the only person on the planet who doesn't see this movie.
Ahhh. Just remembering the original argument from this thread, since dropped like a hot potato. Happy times. :D
