Re: Food shortages in Venezuela

The regime made private gun ownership illegal in 2012. This is one consequence. It should be noted that MAduro does not trust his own national guard troops at the border enough to give them weapons other than tear gas and rubber bullets Though he does trust the colectivos/Baijii thugs with real gun...

Re: Could this be the beginning of the next India-Pakistan war?

Modi is a new kind of Indian PM. He is assertive when it comes to Hindu identity.

He may go much further than his predecessors.

Re: Food shortages in Venezuela

I see. Thanks Milo. So the environmentalists should be happy that the less pure and thus more polluting Venezuelan crude is for the moment sanctioned by the US. But can't Maduro shipped their oil to Russia or China to refine it? Or better yet, get the Chinese to build a refinery in Venezuela. That ...

Re: Food shortages in Venezuela

You must concede, doc, that America's recently achieved self-sufficiency in crude oil production has made it so much easier for the US to boycott purchases of Venezuelan crude. http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2018-12/13/c_137669737.htm HOUSTON, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- The United States exported more c...

Re: Civilization is an oxymoron

I think the lesson here is slaughter your own people all you want but don't invade others.

As to civilization, I don't know if it's supposed to be more moral, just more capable, and this proves that!

Re: Twins get 'mystifying' DNA ancestry test results

From what I heard it's not the tests themselves, it's the mathematical models used to interpret the results. Lawyers are getting some good business out of Chimerism too! The DNA of Fairchild's children matched that of Fairchild's mother to the extent expected of a grandmother. They also found that,...

Re: A parable about wealth

According to Max Weber, the Protestant ethic is why North Europe and North America have done better than South Europe and South America. So you come from a part of the world where the people are bums, sorry I mean, less productive. The most important thing to point out is that virtues are the cause...
