Pow Wow – An Autumn Conundrum

Taxi, yes, several days I find I cant even get the comment box to work--assumed it was on my computer's end but will try re signing in and see if it clears up...there seems to be some kind of 'lag' where the post commdnt lags in showing up.

Yea taxi you do need some help...its too much for one person. I, for one, do like the news articles (objective ones at least) because I think we need to be up the latest info for things to hit our politicians with. The TTP trade deal is a good example of things we need to see and have explained so we can oppose it---just as is news of Israel's demand for an increase to 5 billion in US aid. When I see info like that is when I am hot on the phone to my politicians----and as I keep saying getting the politicians is the only thing that is going to produce change in anything, especially Palestine. I don't have the patience or time to sit down and write a coherent article but plenty of the other members here do. Cloak and Dagger is also someone you could recruit to do takes on news articles. The thing is we all get saturated and worn out--but that is exactly why we need info that fires us up and makes us pick up the phone and rant to congress as well as passing it on to people we see in our every day off the net lives. I know that not a week passes when I don't engage some friend or acquaintance or even a stranger on something/issue I have seen---and watch them be shocked and get enraged over what I told them----and that is what the country/world needs----informed and enraged people.

I am not adverse to anyone posting articles or even opinion pieces-- even people like Jones and others that I dont agree with --as long as we can argue the merits or lack of and not turn things into personal attacks. Sean is fast at this kind of thing and you could ask him to cross post some of his stuff from his Facebook to Plato's. You might even consider asking some MW commenters you like if they want to do some post here instead of just being confined to the comment section at MW---there are one or two left there that still have intelligent things to say.

Construction of a New World Order for the 21st Century Has Begun

Re: Trump "A sizable chunk of America’s population couldn’t care less about the middle east and would prefer their government invested in creating more jobs instead of more overseas wars. The Neocons selling another war to the majority of American people is but a practical impossibility right now." This is why Trump is getting the numbers he's getting. I said it long ago--America First--is what the majority of the public wants and wants to hear.

Accurate analysis Sean. IMO however ---and if we are thinking of how to rid ourselves of both---it would be easier to bring down the Jewish neos than the non Jewish neos---the Jewish neos have a big Achilles Heel---their fidelity to a foreign country for which they are willing to destroy America to support it---easier to turn the ignorants against them for that. The non Jeiwsh neos are a harder case--again if we are talking about how to get rid of them also and the 'ignorants' they appeal to with their fear mongering and rah rah superpower shit. "If' you can destroy the Zio neos first, the non Jewish neos will be easier to bring down--since they can be tarred with their affiliation with the treasonous Zio neos. I know I have said this a million times but bottom line traitor trumps anti semite every day of the week. And in today's climate --and the climate is ripe for it--that is the Only way to destroy them.

Russia Destroys The Greater Israel Dream

October 21, 2015 11:24 pm
Great analysis and article Taxi! Yahoo! And I think this supports the take on Israel's worry and hysterics:.....the US is clearly not challenging Russia in Syria......much to Israel's ire. lol US pilots 'told not to react to aggressive Russian jets in Syria' http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/us-pilots-told-not-to-react-to-aggressive-russian-jets-in-syria-a6701381.html '' US military pilots have reportedly been ordered not to respond to any provocative or aggressive actions from their Russian counterparts, as both countries fly increasingly close to each other in operations in Syria. US media said the American pilots have were told to proceed with standard aviation safety procedures. The report, by CNN, comes as Russian and US officials seek to agree a way both countries can operate safely. Russia has been flying airstrikes in Syria since last month The report said that in one instance in the last two weeks, a Russian jet flew within 500 feet of a US fighter. On another, on Thursday, a Russian aircraft came within 1,500 feet of two US aircraft. There was no hostile action by either side and no indication of hostile intent in these two incidents, the report said.''

.BTW..re: "" Secure OUR Borders to protect American interests and preserve our traditions and identity.” I have to say b.grand that you don't have to be a 'white nationalist' (i.e. a racist or Aryan nation clod) to understand or object to the way American principles, institutions and our government have been perverted out of all recognition of what the nation was and is suppose to be about by ethnic and foreign interest. This ethnic 'salad bowl' political governing/panderng instead of the ethnic 'melting pot' governing for the 'common good' is not what our founders intended---and even warned against---and the corruption we see today is the result of not heeding those warnings. The empire is corrupt to the core and it will not end well.

Plato’s Pow Wow

October 4, 2015 11:08 pm
I am not a good story teller but here is a true story in case you thought all those tales of scandals in Southern Gardens of good and evil were just tales. My wife (and I) had a friend whose father was killed while she was in college. When we got word we drove down and were going to stay until the funeral was held. Neither of us knew exactly what had happened until we got there. Friends and family were sitting in the den drinking cocktails and being served canapés when we arrived. It was all very tisk ,tisk, how tragic. Kaye, the daughter, called us outside and gave us the details----her mother had shot her father. The story was that her father came home late, didn't turn on the lights on the staircase and in the dark her mother had thought he was a burglar and shot him 3 times with a 38 they kept in the bedroom.......about 6 feet from the top of the stairs. . The deceased it needs to be explained was a total cad as the old ladies say ---he had married Kaye 's mother for her money and her fathers two cash generating Pepsi bottling companies that she let him control after her father died. And he lived it up on her money...gambling...flaunting his girl friends around in front of her friend as if he wasn't married....disappearing to Vegas or the islands for periods of time. The whole thing was actually surreal...the atmosphere was more like people attending to Kaye's mother and attending the funeral as if it was a "fitting end' to some major unpleasantness. The shooting had been declared an accident by the police immediately with no investigation.............and that was that. Avoiding justice.....? Covering up for a respected lady of the town? Probably. But of anyone cared they never said so or did anything about it. The last comment I heard from any of the mourners was two ladies leaving the house saying how they needed to take Libby to Roanoke next week to go shopping and get her over all this' unpleasantness.'

Great telling of the story taxi. But I agree with danaa, don't be too hard on her---she is as you said a simple girl----and was probably afraid to tell you of her secret boyfriend because in a sense you are the 'master' of her...she is dependent on your good graces. And too you don't know what the situation is between her and her husband....her life probably isnt a bed of roses and lonely people look for a fairy tale love sometimes......its human. Have a woman to woman talk and give her some birth control.
