Topic Do you think Ahmed Mohamed deserves $15m compensation?
Posted 24 Nov 2015 06:01

While I thought officials overreacted by arresting the boy, he has already received more than enough compensation.

Once it was investigated and found out it was just a homemade clock, they should've dropped it, but warned him not to bring anything else to school that resembled a bomb.

Many bombs are attached to clock timing devices, so yes, that could scare the hell out of anyone. And really teachers encounter all kinds of shit at schools, threats from students and parents, etc.

Why is there a wave of paranoia? I don't know, ask the people from the Boston Marathon or the folks in Paris?

Topic Donating & Helping during the Holidays...
Posted 23 Nov 2015 17:48

I am a big fan of Habitat for Humanity, and they get nearly all of our donations. A wonderful organization. And unlike a LOT of organizations, they don't bug you for money all year long. Meaning they don't spend money on promoting themselves, they spend it where it is needed.

Also if you know some basic carpentry or not, you can volunteer to help out building houses. There are plenty of jobs that can be done with that. And if you are good with power tools and know how to use them, Habitat is always needing someone with those skills when they put up a house.

Is it wrong to blame Buz, as his post was the only one showing?

Should be fixed now loops.

Topic Where do you write and save the drafts?
Posted 21 Nov 2015 10:05

I work in Mac Pages and save stories to my cloud. There is a feature, a new one, that allows you to back up and save all of your Lush stories. It saves them to a folder you can store on your computer or upload the cloud.

I am hoping to get around to seeing that new James Bond movie Spectre at the cinemas. Love seeing them on the big screen, sneaking beer into the cinema and getting a big bucket of hot buttered popcorn.

Topic How to know when you're too picky?
Posted 21 Nov 2015 09:40

It;s okay to be picky. But sometimes just try someone out that might be nice. Some people will definitely grow on you and only time will tell you whether they're worth it or not. Use your instincts.

Topic Reactions to IS (Islamic State)
Posted 21 Nov 2015 09:15

Much of the roots of this started when UK greed didn't give the Arabs and Moslems their true independence at the end of WWI, by turning the 'liberated' Ottoman Empire states into colonies to glorify and enrich The British Empire (don't forget how that empire enslaved India for two centuries). The resentment and hatred started then and got worse with further western interference. The modern world's dependence on oil made this part of the world important. Eventually they became independent and now with the enormous input of oil money, the radical groups have the financing they need to spread terror in their quest for an entire world that conforms to their view.

And culturally much of the radicalism has roots that goes back centuries to the times of religious wars. Though often religion was a scapegoat for old fashioned financial gain. Money & power is always intertwined.

No doubt exasperated by Bush's Irag War, but that is not the cause (which was already seething and waiting for a chance to grow and explode). It did destabilize that region and allow for a faster rise of ISIS and other radical violent terrorists.

This violent clash of cultures is very complex and will probably curse all of us for the rest of our lives and beyond. Remember, those people who adhere to the most radical Moslem views hate our culture and consider us the great Satan. Our liberty, freedom, acceptance of alternative lifestyles, accepting many religions, even athiesm and paganism is totally abhorrent in their view and unacceptable. They want to eradicate our culture and way of life.

But it is important to remember that not all Moslems believe like them. Like most other religions there is a wide spectrum of beliefs and many are quite accepting and peace loving.

Our freedom and liberty is really going to be put to the test over the next few decades. Just be prepared.

University campuses in the USA are the worst offenders of promoting PC censorship in North America. Instead of educating creative free thinking minds they want to generate cookie cutter brainwashed PC zombies.

I started a Group called Classic & Almost Classic Novels where we can discuss great novels and/or almost great novels. and the authors.

A group and place to discuss great and almost great novels of the past and present. Friendly discussion of novels, the book's achievements, strengths, weaknesses and the author, their life, strengths, weaknesses and so forth. What makes a novel great?
