This is less than 30 minutes from where I work. People that I work with know people who work at the Children's Hospital.

Gunman who had been holding baby is shot at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin

The building was on lockdown after the suspect was reportedly in custody after being shot on the seventh floor of the hospital. The Wauwatosa hospital was on lockdown after the gunfire erupted sometime after 1 p.m.

I watched a docu called Death by China on Netflix last night. It's worth checking out. Basically it's about:
China is going to own us, if it doesn't already. The US owes them a cool 3 trillion. Read/eat the label! If it comes from China don't buy it. They steal our technology and don't open their markets to foreign imports or investments. Right now they are building the biggest army the world has ever seen under a communist/dictatorship since the 1930's and no ones bothered buy it. Not when they can go to the great Wall of Mart and save a few bucks on Chinese made toy's that break down and are often the fruits of labor from a 7-8 yr. old kid in some sweatshop covered with lead paint. Now your kid can be poisoned slowly too. No other country has had so many recalls as China has on it's goods. Where covering the USA in Chinese Junk from companies that have moved to China from here. Irony?
Support the Americas, buy American.
While the Olympics were on. The Chinese couldn't see them through the coal burning smog, but we could with our close up's and camera filters on though, sitting on our Chinese made couches and watching Chinese made big flat screen TV's. Smoke and mirrors.
Then there's the slave labor camps where everyone is basically waiting for someone with enough $$$'s that needs a liver/kidneys heart transplant etcetera. The recipient is told it's from an executed murderer...how convenient!
I wouldn't do biz with any country that can "nationalize" your biz and interest in that country.

It's worth checking out and makes a compelling case about the economics of China draining the US's economy. It has some very valid points. Scary points too!

Good to know KK.

Also, don't buy any canned goods if they say Product of Thailand or China. Their facilities are full of bacteria and feces, so I hear. Those 99cent-type stores carry a lot of overseas foodstuffs.

huh. I guess more details will emerge but it reads like maybe the cops should have waited for him to come outside before serving a warrant to an "armed felon" in the maternity wing?

Maybe you are, because centre-right, means partly liberal & conservative. But it certainly does NOT mean fully right wing and/or conservative or anywhere close to it. And that was what Caputh was heavily implying in his initial post.

Nice try, assholes... :roll:

Well, it doesn't fully. But it does partly.

And btw, you've basically admitted that you manipulated the meanings of said political parties to support your position, since you're not denying it otherwise.

I knew when I placed you on ignore, you'd continue to pull this shit. :roll:

It's probably because some people hold onto their beliefs a little too tightly...

Ah, so a manipulative shithead is one who fails to include the word "liberal" after the word "Conservative" (notice the big c?) in describing "centre right parties". Once again, I was referring to Conservative in the sense of the British political party "the Conservatives", who also describe themselves as "Centre Right". In Europe, the two terms are synonyms.

So, if I'm a manipulative shithead, I wonder what that makes somebody who...
a) claims that the centre right governments in Spain, Portugal and Greece are socialist...
b) then describes "centre right" parties as "partly" socialist...
c) apparently puts somebody on "ignore" whilst continuing to read and reply to their posts...
d) then repeats the claim that he has put them on ignore?

The Dutch Catholic church bans the songs Stille Nacht (Silent Night) and De Herdertjes Lagen Bij Nachte from Christmas services. They're concerned about the lack of quality of these songs.

Who's ever heard of quality in religion ? :lol:
Isn't faith supposed to elude that ? :lol:

Is there an option that prevent posts from a certain person to be even displayed when I'm looking at a thread ?
I thought that a ban only refers to upcoming emails but I may be wrong.

If such an option exists, let me know !

Oh no, poor rhino! :(

Mij: there's a perfectly fine Ignore feature. Click on "profile" below a post of the person you take offense to. You'll end up on his profile.
Below his avatar on the left side of the profile, you can see the buttons "Add friend" and "Add foe". Click Add Foe.

Enjoy!

No, a manipulative shithead is one who constantly fails at winning arguments and instead weasels or ultimately backpedals their way out of debates.

a) claims that the centre right governments in Spain, Portugal and Greece are socialist...


I didn't exactly claim that. This was my initial statement, when I was referring to high unemployment in Europe:

Much of Europe, especially southern European countries like Spain, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal (which are currently at Great Depression era levels of unemployment) etc., have already. And it's NO surprise that socialists run the bulk of these countries...

Manipulative Shithead wrote:
b) then describes "centre right" parties as "partly" socialist...


So a liberal isn't partly socialist? That's news to me.

Manipulative Shithead wrote:

These recent set of posts you've made were the ONLY posts of yours I've read since I've put you on ignore. And please tell me what rulebook states that putting someone on ignore automatically means they can't read the ignoree's posts?

I'll freely admit to being perceived as a manipulative shithead, dear DB, on the grounds that one could argue that I have, once again, succeeded in manipulating you to reveal the bottomless depths of your own lack of self-awareness - although that was not my intention. So I suppose some might say that makes me a manipulative shithead and you a manipulated shithead. I, at least, know which I'd rather be.

BTW Conservative does not equal socialist and neither does liberal. We can refer to social (e.g. the Liberal Democrats in the UK) or economic liberals (the Austrian Liberals -FPÖ-and, in fact, Ron Paul). The term is ambiguous and thus I did not use it in the above context.
