IIRC, "head rolling" means "going to jail".

So there's Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort.
Yeah.

BEFORE his trial.

What is this? The Soviet Union?
yes and no

quick rundown of what happend in court

maniforts lawyers asked for a do not contact list and that he return to house arrest

judge assumed that the list would be huge and he would contact potential others not on the list yet

prosecutors gave examples of how he was contacting poeple he knew would be witnesses

judge decided he would wait in prison for his trial to prevent any method to contact other potential witnesses

manifort was escorted out, bailiff returned to his wife with maniforts wallet, tie and belt
Why should he not be allowed to contact other Witnesses?
Again I ask ...
Again I  :facepalm:
And I

In any case the Llano estacado used to be teeming with bison herds and other life and now it is mostly dead like Westley in The Princess Bride, kept alive only by Center pivot irrigation but that too will soon fail  according to this article ...

Cows can't replace irrigation. Stop the irrigation and let Nature do her thing.
Nope.  As weird as it sounds, properly managed cows are the only thing that will save areas like that.
The ONLY thing

Like I said I read the article. But have you guys looked at a Google map of Niger? Have you read anything about the agriculture situation in Niger? Other than this article I linked? It's a pretty dire situation and people cannot feed themselves year around.  The things that they're doing that this article talks about are great but it's so small and the problem is so enormous.

I personally am hanging my hopes for the world on somebody very powerful and influential like Donald Trump or the Chinese president getting their eyes opened about Holistic Management.

You are on to something there dave. Irrigation using fossil water is the OG unsustainable agricultural.

Finally, in 1867, Cody took up the trade that gave him his nickname, hunting buffalo to feed the construction crews of the Kansas Pacific Railroad. By his own count, he killed 4,280 head of buffalo in seventeen months. He is supposed to have won the name "Buffalo Bill" in an eight-hour shooting match with a hunter named William Comstock, presumably to determine which of the two Buffalo Bill's deserved the title.

It's captivating watching this and trying to figure out if the justice system moves faster than Trump is corrupting it.
That is a disturbing question

Unhappy is the land that needs a hero, Andreus.

Pisses me off that he wasn't handcuffed.

How does this guy still keep his job? Has "LOL nothing matters" mentality infected 100% of the population over there?
People don't like it, but... did you see that dude reading the Howard zinn speech I posted in the alt right thread? Yeah. That.

N. Africa is degraded.

Period.
It still has not dawned on you how dumb these

" The End "
 and
" Period. "

pronouncements are, has it?
Messiahs are not ever wrong though.

Actually that article is excellent,  dave. You should read it.
12
He read past the title.

He at least read it until he found a quote that he thought supported him.
No. Google gave him the quote and he never read even the title.
13
Bahahahaha...  here's what happens when arrogant octohatters who have absolutely  no fucking clue what they are talking about yet get paid large salaries advise country presidents like Senegal's.

"Plant trees in a belt 10 miles wide and 4300 miles long. Derp. Derp"

Oops! 80% of them are now dead! Imagine that!

Fucking LOL. Did you even read past the title, dave? :rofl:
Omg that's funny. I don't think he even read the title.

N. Africa is degraded.

Period.
Thus spake the messiah, king of the tree fort.

In any case, does everyone understand Allan Savory's use of the term brittleness better now?  Another way to look at it is that these are areas that will degrade without help from rotating herbivore herds natural or artificial. Of course if one bastardizes the term degrade and thus thinks that places like the Sahara Desert are not degraded, then we have a problem.
You mean your personal preference is the correct personal preference?

TBF, I don't think Dave understood most of what vivisectus said. Not the words so much as the point made.

Oh, ye of little faith! Dave has a Phd in truth detection, remember. The truthiness or lack thereof just becomes apparent to his high-speed mind directly. It effortlessly penetrates the bulwarks of jargon thrown up by the kind of ivory tower, hoity-toity elitist technocrats and leaves just the kind of red-blooded, robust homespun truth that the real experts, the people getting their hands dirty on the bleeding edge of Christian land-stewardship research, already know.
The evidence does seem to indicates this, yes.
Lol

No, that's not my duty.  My duty is twofold ...

TRUTH. LOVE.

Always strive to be truthful no matter how tempting it is to lie even just a little bit.  Always try to love my neighbor - even you - no matter how unlovable.

If we do these two things ... but use words like snappy-offyness ... then we will do good for the cause of science.  (And business) (And community) (And family)


I see. So would it be safe to say that you feel that using terms like snappy-offyness rather than less ambiguous terms represents an ideological commitment to what we could call a higher, shall we say, truthiness, in your opinion?
No just more understandable by a wider audience.

But we just saw that often ambiguous terms actually make things less understandable. Not more.

Also, if that is all you meant then your grandiose speech on your duty to truth and love seems a bit apropos of nothing.
Well, feeding his messiah complex is always apropos.

This is so poignant.  Well spent 10 minutes.

Well, that's not the difference in how c-levels behave though.

Me too. Btw, I can play pennywhistle passably.

Learning pennywhistle is right at the top of the list of signs of depression.

I thought Americans were supposed to be unimpressed by such things as being a "king".
I am American and am pretty unimpressed with kings.

This is what it looks like when we run government like a Trump business.
ftfy
You didn't make any significant change there. It's an ignorant bumper sticker supported by a stack of equally ignorant bumper stickers like the car tabs when you realize you haven't taken any off ever and you've owned the car for 12 years. This is what it looks like to run government like a business. Stipulating what kind of business is irrelevant.
