Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Did anyone pick up any good Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals? I picked up the 14" Macbook Pro for a $350 discount off normal price. Nice! i tried not to, but I did end up buying some zippered cubes that store towels and clothes. 60% off. No electronics. The battery in my cool Gerber flashlight mu...

Re: Time to buy more physical gold

I’d like to offer help, but I’ve only used AJPM and Apmex. The past few years have been Apmex, so I don’t really have anyone to compare them to. Expensive but reliable. (I never had any issues with AJPM. Just didn’t like ordering by phone). If memory serves, people here really liked JM Bullion. I ne...

... if Putin had been able to take over Ukraine in the manner he originally envisioned .... what do you believe he would have done next?
There are duped westerners experts who see him eyeing the former bloc states. And, those old bloc states see it, too.

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

I'm afraid I don't follow :( I want to though. Are you saying people in Kazakhstan or Singapore are siding with or against kiev? I’ll try to explain.

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

It is a discussion board, the purpose of which is an outlet for opinions and such. The premise that stuper said that most people believe anything the TV says is probably true, but it's a shrinking population. A vocal minority of the country believe and support what the TV tells them. Most people ar...

It's just a minority in the western world that supports it. It might only be a vocal minority on this discussion board even. Because…the Russians a...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

By the way, you might want to re-check what an ad hominem attack is like. An ad hominem attack is mudslinging meant to divert attention away from the real issue. The statement I made about people believing whatever their television tells them is hardly a diversion; it's at the heart of the problem....

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

And so it's okay for us to kill terrorists without due process, but it's not okay for Putin to do it, and the only reason most people don't see any contradiction here is because they believe anything their television tells them. You don’t have to go all ad hominem on everyone who doesn’t share your...

That guy is the master, Vinny (Bill McClintock). His mashups are artful. Rob Zombie’s Dragula mixed with the Trammps’ Disco Inferno: perfect. Too many to mention. Many a Sabbath mix.

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

The Ukrainian demands of Russian surrendering all the contested territory with Russian populations will never be acceptable, so I'm afraid it ...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Think about it like this; the post-coup Ukrainian government has been bombing civilians since 2014. Not the ones in Crimea though (those civilians were protected by Russia), but they did cut off the water supply to them*. Why aren't you supportive of the Russians not letting the American-backed Ukr...

Who here would support their children or nieces and nephews bring sent to fight Russia? Do you draw the line there? We are at war with Russia, but currently by proxy.

I mean, if you do believe that, so be it, but it’s not the case. I know the Ukraine gover...
