Oh my ... you are right... and I am pleased you take the time to do a simple google search beforre running your mouth .. or do you? If you did would we be having this conversation?.

Now I did check, as you suggested your new pic. Intrerestingly the first google result thinks Rebecca Francis is 12 years old and has a different name. So having apologised once for ruffling your feathers I will be more careful next time... perhaps.


Check again. Then apologize.

Someone brought this to my attention.

Wow what a surprise. Did they whisper it to you on the playground? Maybe next time you can trade a juice box for a peanut butter sandwich and a set of balls.

University is not the only way for people to become happy. I'm not even sure it's the best way for people to become happy. But as long as you're sure, I guess that makes it a requirement that everyone on the planet attend university. Really?

I agree. Maybe you should look past the insults and actually read what I wrote if you want to make an intelligent response. I didn't say that it would be a requirement. I said it should be accessible to everyone. You do see the difference don't you?

What about if someone is happy living in a trailer? Or what about those people who are happy attending a NASCAR race?

Then great. I'll still probably make fun of you, but if you really enjoy it then why would you take offense? I do notice that there is a strong correlation with people liking NASCAR and being really ignorant, stupid dumb fucks.. hence the jokes.

Now you've been here long enough so I really shouldn't need to explain to you how things go. I feel like you should start paying me tuition. So I make a rational argument, and I pepper in a few stereotyped insults for comedic effect. Then you respond. Now I know that jokes are way out of your wheelhouse, so why don't you take some time and consult with your little group of redneck friends (ya know, the ones that bitch about me behind closed doors but don't have the balls to confront me? The ones that I've probably already destroyed in the forums before?)

So come back with something substantial. Because nobody wants to to read a back and forth pissing contest, especially when one of the participants can produce little more than a dribble. It bogs the forums down people get bored. This should be entertaining for others as well as me.

This will be the last time I explain this to you.

My best guess is that it's a cultural thing. I've always seen it as BS or MS, not BSc or MSc. At least now if I ever see that I'll know two things: 1) what they mean; and 2) they are most likely from Europe.

Thanks for sharing that piece of information.

In sciences Bsc and Msc are generally used because in medical terminology BS and MS have other meanings. Scientists are super anal about abbreviations. It doesn't really matter though because there usually isn't any confusion between meanings. I have noticed that people with arts degrees (BA,MA) tend to use BS and MS.

Bsc and Msc are the correct terms though, because nobody wants "bowel signs" and "Multiple Sclerosis" after their names on a business card.

A bunch of typical republican selfish bullshit.

Seriously Seax? You can write 32 pages of garbage about the 2nd amendment, post a thousand wikipedia links, and drone on forever about the constitution... but you can't write one fucking joke?

Do I have to do all the work here? I leave for a couple days and you turn the entire Lush forum into some kind of white trash PBS.

And.... we're back to health care... I feel like I've already posted enough health care material in over the last few years to publish my own book.

Maybe I'll call it "Health Care For Dummies." Nah... Might run into some trademark issues. Maybe Healthcare for jackasses? Because trying to explain healthcare to a republican is like trying to explain astrophysics to a donkey. That might be more appropriate, even though even donkeys could probably grasp the basic principle of "not letting people in your country die."

And when I say "donkeys" I don't mean democrats. I would include elephants in that analogy, but that would probably just make your dick hard at the prospect of shooting them and fashioning their tusks into some kind of Boss Hog-style hood ornament for your pickup truck.

So what is the issue here? Is it just that you feel healthcare is a partisan issue and you've chosen to be on the shitty side? This is like a bad 80's movie and you're Biff Tannen. You do realize that you are the bad guy in this scenario right?

We are talking about healthcare now. And this is my world. If I want to know how many inches to saw off my shotgun or where I should go to get the best deal on confederate flag mud flaps... We all know who to call. But in the meantime, I suggest you start taking notes.

I could drone on about how health care is good for society and quote stats of other countries that have universal health care, but I've been through that dance before. So I'll try to explain it in a way that even right wing nutjobs can understand.

Think of it like the military. (We all know you guys love the military).

It's something that everyone pays for and that benefits everyone. It won't always be necessary, but the assurance that all your bases are covered makes it worthwhile. It provides a lot of jobs and the fact that demand is always high, makes it profitable for innovation to occur. Just like having law enforcement, fire departments, highways and sewers.

Now what is it that you are afraid of? Paying more? You already pay more than any other country per individual in the entire world. Way more. And the fact that you still have millions that have zero coverage should be a complete embarrassment. You want healthcare to be the domain of insurance companies? Terrible idea. If not everyone has insurance, then it fucks up the entire system. Imagine if you had millions of people driving around without car insurance... The same thing happens in health care. It's inefficient. The only ones benefiting are the insurance companies.

It all comes down to selfishness. You don't wan't to pay for healthcare if anyone else gets it too. In my books, that make you a pretty shitty person.

Maybe it's time you joined the rest of the world?

The pic I replaced it with is actually of Rebecca Francis, who is certainly not a 12 year old girl. She's a very well known "huntress" who constantly posts on social media. She had a very publicized spat with Ricky Gervais a couple years ago. If you would prefer, I can post pics her with dead lions, leopards, mountain goats, bears...... I'm amazed that since you went to the trouble of age checking a pic that had no consequence , you couldn't take the time to do a simple google search before running your mouth once again.

The fact is, neoliberal capitalism depends on an underprivileged class to be exploited. Depriving others is what allows the rest of us to stay comfortable. We need the working poor and stupid. Hell, we even need the homeless to scare the shit out of the working poor and stupid ('you don't want to end up like that, do you? Now keep grinding away for less than a living wage, and be happy about it'). Without an exploitable working class, the whole system just falls apart.

This is the classic "American" way of thinking. Individualism and competition over equality and the good of society as a whole. Which is why the US has the most billionaires yet also has a huge percentage of the population living in poverty.

Even post secondary education is hierarchical in the US. If you go to Harvard you are automatically considered a better human being. If you go to Arizona are shit. This is not how education should be.

Education should not be about "status". Education allows people to do something that they enjoy doing, as their vocation.

Let me reiterate that. University allows people to make a living off doing something that makes them happy.

If you are happy being a janitor, then great. If you want to work in a coal mine, then great. But if you want to do anything that requires advanced education then that option should be open to you.

The US should look to Denmark. (They won't, because the US doesn't seem to ever look to any other country as something to aspire to) But Denmark has one of the highest standards of living, one of the highest per capita income, the highest income equality, lowest corruption, almost zero crime, very educated...etc etc.

But Americans have been buying in to this idea that it's somehow better to have the slight option of becoming very rich, rather than having everyone living a good life. It's almost as if the entire country is a white trash family banking on winning the lottery. You're willing to let everyone live a garbage life if there is a slight chance that you might strike it rich.

So instead of addressing inequalities you're doubling down on "stupid", dividing your country and just hoping that the dumb and smart will somehow balance each other out and hoping that you fall on the winning side...

This is a good thread... as 7 pages of comments testify. Any chance you could edit your opening post to remove the pic of the girl with the dead giraffe?.
She is only 12 years old... the girl not the giraffe!. I know this adds to the outrage... but don't think it's allowed to be posted... despite mods commenting on the content. Am not trying to be a moderator... just suggesting that you might get a quiet pm once they realise.

The fact that the girl is only 12 years of age... mind boggles. I wonder how she responds to animals when she is older? Think ... crybaby


Because that's obviously the issue.... Glad to see you're researching the stuff that has nothing to do with the actual post. If you zoom in I think you can see some brand names on the clothing that the people are wearing. Maybe you should go and blur those out so not to infringe on any copyright laws?

By all means, remove it.

On second thought... Maybe I acted unfavorably. She does look kind of young. Even though she is wearing camo pants (which I hear is the new state color of Missouri.)

In future cases, just contact me privately with your concerns and I will most likely be very reasonable. The fact that you brought this minor issue out in a public forum indicates that you want to make it a public spectacle.

Absolutely LOVE this book. Sweetheart of Song Tra Bong still haunts me - the "necklace" (I won't spoil the book by describing it) is a really unnerving detail. Cranston seems like the perfect voice for this.

Don't know about Vietnam recommendations, but my favorite war books (other than this) are James Jones' The Thin Red Line, and Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels (favorite novel on the Civil War) and OF COURSE Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five.

I'm still reading Ill Will. Very dark, very good.

"Most people seemed to believe that they were experts of their own life story. They had a set of memories that they strung like beads, and this necklace told a sensible tale. But she suspected that most of these stories would fall apart under strict examination--that, in fact, we were only peeping through a keyhole of our lives, and the majority of the truth, the reality of what happened to us, was hidden. Memories were no more solid than dreams." - Dan Chaon, Ill Will

Yeah that was my favorite part of the book. Mary Anne Bell and her necklace of tongues. I feel like that part alone should be made into a movie. After I listened to it, I went back and read it in print again.

Topic The Age of Un-Enlightenment
Posted 19 Jul 2017 19:22

Well, it’s a new day. A bright new dawning in the dumbfuck empire. A literal age of un-enlightenment. In the day of “fake” news and “alternative facts” we find ourselves at an all-time low as the most powerful country in the history of the planet has a loud and proud minority that has once again given the rest of the 6 billion a figurative middle finger by declaring war on knowledge.

Okay, okay… that was a bit dramatic. Let me explain.

A recent poll by FOX News among current “GOP leaning individuals” states that a whopping 58% of those polled stated that colleges and universities have a “Negative” effect on America.

Now this isn’t really a surprise… After all, I seem to recall a well-known orange baboon trying to fit a hard-hat over his oversized head as he spouted out the words “I love the uneducated!” to a cheering crowd who predictably took that as an actual compliment. He might has well just shouted out “I love obese highschool dropouts with IQs under 90!” and the crowd would probably cheer as if Lynyrd Skynyrd just came back from the dead to play Sweet Home Alabama at your sister/cousin’s wedding.

After all… Isn’t that why you voted for him? Because he talks like you? Seems dumb like you? The sad part is that he’s actually smarter than you are.

You voted for a Manhattan billionaire with an Ivy League education and he’s playing you just like the Republicans have been playing you for years.

Does anyone else find it ironic that a group of rich white and very educated old men have managed to convince half the population that it’s now somehow “uncool” and “undesirable” to know how to read?

Hmmm…If I didn’t have such unassailable faith in humanity I would think that a selfish educated elite was looking to continue to find ways to make money while the rest of you waste your time squabbling over god, guns and people using the wrong bathroom. d'oh!

But I know what you red state rednecks think about higher education. You are probably picturing a bunch of privileged white kids decked out in man-buns and jean shorts, sitting around a drum circle smoking weed and bitching about “safe spaces” in between philosophy classes. Am I right?

Well why don’t I drop some knowledge on you while you sit your tar-paper shack waiting for your local coal mine to re-open? Think about what your life would be like without doctors, nurses, teachers, dentists, accountants, architects, engineers… pretty much everyone that is responsible for your current way of life. (I left out lawyers on purpose…)

So maybe you should get down on your knees and thank whatever ridiculous deity you pray to that not only did you have the dumb luck of being born on this patch of dirt, at this point in time… but also thank Zeus/Allah/Jupiter or whatever stone age dumbfuck messiah that’s in vogue these days that He instilled some desire for knowledge in at least some of your fellow human beings so that you can cook your possum stew over a stove, in a house, while you watch NASCAR and not over a campfire in some cave somewhere.

I know it’s too late for you, but the least you could do try your best to make sure your kids don’t follow in your footsteps. Just because “your daddy worked in the mine” and your daddy’s daddy worked in the mine” doesn’t mean that everyone in your ill-fated bloodline should be resigned to a life of stupidity as their livelihoods hang in the balance based on the global demand for natural resources. The world will progress with or without you.

The best resource a nation can have is a well-educated populace.

Now is access to education a problem in the US? Absolutely. Should post-secondary education be subsidized? Well I think so. In fact the rest of the western world thinks so. Bernie Sanders thought so… but half of you seem to think that makes him a “crazy Marxist.” If you see education as the domain of the privileged elite, then why wouldn’t you want to make it accessible to everyone? Give everyone a chance and let the cream rise to the top…?
(Maybe then your Secretary of Education wouldn’t be saying that schools in Montana should have guns for protection from grizzly bears.)

Or just sit back and watch FOX news and convince yourself that Trump actually “loves coal” because he puts on a hard hat and holds a cardboard sign for the cameras. Keep convincing yourself that global warming is a hoax and that the earth is only 10 thousand years old. Keep telling yourself that “learning” is a “bad word.”

Knowledge shouldn’t be a partisan issue.

Oh...I was told I should lighten up my posts a Smiley face!!

Yes, wouldn't be the first time a sparring partner takes a shot at a bigger name when they notice they've let their guard down. Or who knows what?

If it is true, then McGregor should have to put a pause in his sparring schedule after suffering a concussion. If there is no pause from sparring then that should show that nothing happened.

I first saw it on Forbes. You mentioned Forbes as not being a great source for MMA news so I looked up and just added a few other link sources.

I think the fight could be great entertainment. A great chance to have a party with a bunch of friends and watch it on the flat screen while consuming large quantities of alcohol, nachos, and dip.

So maybe the promoters of the fight will 'arrange' for it to go the distance.

One for posts that seemed more toward stirring the pot rather than discussing the topic at hand. The other for non stop abuse rather thinly disguised as discussion. One of the more ridiculous characteristics of his posts was the way that his abuse seemed to be based on conclusions he had jumped to earlier rather than anything his target had written such as the following:

"Just say that you like it and we can all walk away happy. Continue with this ridiculous notion that your love of killing animals for fun and not food is for the betterment of society and just dig yourself a deeper hole."

I am not, and have never been, a big game hunter, not in Africa, or anyplace else. Nowhere in this thread have I condoned much less supported the practice of trophy hunting. But this one poster evidently lives in an alternate reality where his fevered imagination throws up horrific visions of what other people are like. He needs help. But it is not my job to find that help for him, or to endure his rants any further.

He is blocked. He will stay blocked until he gives me good reason to unblock him. Nuff said!

Topic Does the 2nd Amendment only apply to white people?
Posted 17 Jul 2017 23:13

Every last stinking bit of it is amendable. By design.

It's also a darn hard process to finish. Also by design.

But here's the tough nut the gun banners would have to crack.

US v Cruikshank ruled that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is not dependent on the Second amendment for its existence. The Second Amendment merely says the government may not infringe on an existing right.

If any government can give you a "right", or take a "right" away, then that is not a right at all per the language of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of The United States. Rather it is a privilege.

Remember that this government was one of the first, if not the first, government(s) set up from scratch with the premise that the people ruled, not some monarch set upon the throne by god or some bloody orgy of violence. The men who set it up tried to use a rational process similar to deductive logic. They drew from earlier political philosophers and existing governments, the Swiss federation being one notable example. Conclusions flowed from axioms and postulates. As in all creatures, humans included had a right to life established in natural law. In order for that right to life to be protected, a creature must have the right to defend its life. In order for the right of self defense to be valid, that creature must have the means to defend itself. All of that flowed directly, ironically, from Blackstone's "Commentary on the Laws of England". Ironically because Blackstone felt the colonists were completely unjustified in their insurrection against the crown.

Blackstone, Locke, and then Jefferson wrote that governments must protect the rights of the governed. One of the prime complaints of the North American colonists was that King George III and Lord North were riding roughshod over their rights as freeborn English subjects.

So in 1789, when the Founders set about to establish a new government, one of their prime objectives was to ensure that the new government would not trample the people's rights like King George III's government had done.

The bulk of the constitution lays out all of the powers delegated by the 13 original states to the proposed Federal government. But several of the states refused to ratify the document if more safeguards to the people's rights were not added. And that's where the Bill of Rights comes in.

Many of you know of the Bill of Rights. Some of you who are not US citizens might be somewhat familiar with the contents. But almost no one teaches why they were passed, or that a preamble explaining why it was necessary exists. We're generally only familiar with the 10 amendments themselves. Well, here it is.


Preamble to the Bill of Rights

Congress of the United States
begun and held at the City of New-York, on
Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.

ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.

There is no "story". Click on one of those links you posted and watch the 3 min video and then tell if you think that it's a "credible source." Tsk, tsk. This is a great example of how fake news gets started. Somebody uploads a shaky 3 minute "interview" onto their phone, and then a bunch of of internet "journalists" jump on in and try to craft a story around it in an effort to maximize the number of 'clicks' they get before they go sit on the toilet and finish off their workday by completing the minimum number of 'tweets' that their parent company has mandated they perform each day. #deathofjournalism

Because we now live in a world where journalists (yes, even sports journalists are journalists) are judged by by how many twitter followers they have and how many clicks they can generate. So it is up to us, the consumers of such readily available information, to discern whether the sources referenced are actually credible.

First of all, you managed to passively aggressively post 4 shitty sources as opposed to just the usual 1. Congrats.

Second, you made me feel like one of the Conor McGregor fanboys that I've been shaking my head at for the last two years. My interest in Mac has been lukewarm at best, but now I feel like I should be wearing and Irish flag as a cape and chanting "ole, ole, ole, ole,"......whatever the fook that means.

Reports are out that Conor McGregor got knocked out while sparring in a training for his match with Mayweather. Not a good sign for McGregor fans, especially considering the 14 oz. training gloves compared to the 10 oz. gloves that will be used in the real match. Maybe McGregor broke his concentration. Who knows?

I'm pulling for Irishman but not overly optimistic.

I'm not sure Forbes would be my go-to for mma or boxing news.....

If you missed the press tour, check out the highlights on youtube.

They did 4 stops: LA, Toronto, New York, London

By the last stop Conor was treating the whole thing like a roast on comedy central.

I especially liked seeing Mayweather's meathead entourage take a break from gym,tan,laundry and try to insert themselves into the scene.

How many millions of dollars is this spectacle? People are throwing money in the air and these guys are wearing tank tops?

And did nobody point out the irony? How many domestic violence charges does Floyd have? I'm sure Jimmy Fallon's writing staff are "workshopping" wife beater jokes as we speak....

I was actually going to make this thread but I actually thought I would be the only on on Lush who would be even remotely interested in this fight.

I'm a huge MMA fan so I'm obviously going for Connor. Mayweather is a multiple-convicted woman-beater who at 40 years old can't even read.

That being said, McGreggor will be a huge underdog in this fight. Both guys will both be walking away with over 100 million dollars each. As a long time fight fan, the best fights usually aren't put on by multimillionaires.

This will be the biggest fight in history though, so it will definitely be worth the 100 dollar pay-per-view.

knock knock Sheldon! knock knock Sheldon! knock knock Sheldon!

It is Sheldon is it not!. Reading your posts on here, although some are more like rants, sorry, you just have to be the original Sheldon Cooper. Big Bang Theory had to model him on someone and you soooooooo fit the bill, perfectly in fact.

Of course big game hunting is the topic and I do understand what that is. But if you read through all of the posts there has been discussion of hunters just killing and leaving carcasses to rot or be collected and piled up. I have visited Africa, though only once. Have you?. Most carcasses don't last. Other animals etc. see to that.

And why do I need to convince myself that I am feeding hyenas or vultures?. It is true that rotting carcasses do so, along with feeding big cats and the like.

And if you did take sometime to follow your own thread you would find that I am opposed to big game hunting, but I won't bore you with my posts. But you amaze me that peeps who do it claim it is for humanitarian reasons. Surely the only humanitarian reason is the preservation of their own ego!.

As for NYC?. Well it is home to the United Nations. If they spent less on themselves they might spare a dime for those wildlife reserves. I know they donate to maintain antipoaching rangers but if the wildlife parks need the big game hunters in order to survive, then it isn't enough.

Are you sure you have grown out of your childhood habits?. Perhaps you have Lush Forum as a substitute for your childhood passion to kill for fun. There isn't much big game here. But as you are obviously Sheldon, someone has had you looked at.



You are right. I was being utterly lazy today. Congrats on a very entertaining post. I know I should look through all the posts in my thread, but I can only handle so many Seax's wikipedia links before feel the need to crawl into the sheets and call my "Mee-maa" back in Galveston. I'll try and do better next time.

Posted 16 Jul 2017 19:40

Under the provisions of the Gun Control Act of 1968, it is not possible for one of your "bad peeps" (the law calls them "prohibited persons") to legally acquire any firearm.

A prohibited person cannot legally "possess" a firearm. In this case possession is not ownership. They may not legally go into a gun shop or a friends house and pick one up off of a table.

The simple act of a prohibited person filling out ATF form 4473 constitutes a federal felony. Transferring a firearm to a prohibited person is a federal felony. If you know or have reason to believe they intend to use the firearm in the commission of a crime, the penalty is doubled.

And so forth and so on ad nauseum.

In short, there is no legal way for one of your "bad peeps" to legally come into possession of a firearm. But then, if they gave a rats ass about doing things legally, they wouldn't be a "bad peep" in the first place.

So enforce the existing law. Lock them up at hard labor in the Federal pen where 5 years means five years making little ones out of big ones. No probation, no parole, no early release. Five years means 5 x 365 days.

It worked in Richmond VA. Look up "Project Exile". But "Slick Willie" Clinton, POTUS # 42, refused to make it nationwide because some of the advertising was funded by the NRA.

How many innocent Americans do you think died because of that particular pissing match?

What kind of world do you live in? Your arguments are like that of a lawyer that seems to have no idea of how the real world works. Simple minded reasoning is why your "war on crime" and "War on drugs" have worked so well right? By your simple minded reasoning one would state that "Just make heroine illegal and then there will be no problem right?"

Your arguments tend to be geared towards "the way things should be if the world worked the way that it should."

At this point I don't even know if you believe what you say or if you are just grasping at straws to make your argument.

I'm still tending to think that people like you would like to lock up black and brown people who have guns, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt for now.

Now that I've been adequately cordial, let me address this childish, stupid claim of yours that if "bad people" can't legally acquire a gun then there will be no problems. That's like saying if making the legal age for smoking 19, then teenagers wont smoke. I'm beginning to wonder if republicans are really just child-like in their thought processes, if they are actually of lower than normal intelligence, or if they are just fighting tooth and nail for some argument that they think will benefit themselves in some way.
