PhilboydStudge's Comments

Windows 10 users with laptops... Does this happen to you as well? I was just replying to an e-mail, didn't really pay any attention to the surroundings, and after I hit "send" (Gmail), well... Apparently I somehow changed the overall theme without any intention. The same thing happens with Skype from time to time, change to scheme and *puff* - now it's the dark, teeny mode.

I don't have a laptop but I have seen this happen! Gmail has a new mode they're trying to promote and you have to pay attention when you use it or you'll click that button and change the whole screen.
That happens to me sometimes on Skype but for the last month or so? Skype has been FUBAR a lot.

What Do BLM, ANTIFA, Democrat Party, and Media Have in common with the Communist Party Goals To Take Over America?

Trump walked it back like Thinkerbell pointed out but, maybe he took umbrage over those intelligence agencies that have been working 24/7 to destroy his candidacy, disrupt the transition and impeach him.

Yes he did..



(smile)

Liberal media organizations have been working to destroy Trump's candidacy, However, aren't the Intelligence Agencies trying to uncover Russian interference with the 2016 election? If they eventually do indict the President, then he'll have his day in court. And only if he is found guilty should we start seriously talking impeachment.

We know Russia took actions intended to prevent Hillary from becoming the 45th President, including the infiltration of the DNC's computer network. Russia will continue to attempt to interfere with our elections and our government should be defending our representative government. I don't understand why so many citizens don't take this threat seriously.

You're behind the times, Phil... Trump took back his gaffe, if rather unconvincingly.

Maybe Trump was taking Schumer's advice: "You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday of getting back at you."  (see 0:40, below)

Perhaps Schumer has also discredited American Intelligence with that comment?   Hmmm... I thought they were supposed to be on our side. (biggrin)

I was aware that Trump said he misspoke. Personally I don't believe him.

I never saw this video before. Thanks for posting! Did Schumer ever explain this further? I agree with you. Our Intelligence should not target an individual because they have a bone to pick... especially if that person is the POTUS.

Thought experiment... You have the option of going back to the year 1889 and drown baby Adolf Hitler. Do you do it?

Yes, I watched the movie "Minority Report".

I also watched the great 80s movie: " The Final Countdown".

"In 1980, the assistant of the Department of Defense Warren Lasky is assigned by his mysterious chief Richard Tideman to visit the aircraft carrier USS Nimtz commanded by Capt. Matthew Yelland as an observer of the routines. Lasky finds that Wing Commander Richard T. Owens has a great knowledge of history. Out of the blue, the vessel faces a weird storm and they find that they have traveled back in time to the eve of the attack of Pearl Harbor on 06 December 1941. When the two Japanese Zeros attack the motorboat of Senator Samuel Chapman, the crew of the Nimitz rescues the senator and his assistant Laurel Scott. But sooner Lasky learns that the senator had disappeared on that day and Capt. Matthew Yelland is planning to attack the Japanese. Will these actions create a time paradox?"

No. I could never kill a baby....That might also create a paradox.

"A temporal paradox, time paradox, or time travel paradox is a paradox, an apparent contradiction, or a logical contradiction that is associated with the idea of time and time travel. In physics, temporal paradoxes fall into two broad groups: consistency paradoxes exemplified by the grandfather paradox; and causal loops.[1] More broadly, a variation of the Fermi paradox also applies to time travel."

Point well taken. The entire concept of time travel is absurd to me.

Did you ever read or see "Minority Report"? In it they could arrest people for a crime they had not committed. I was thinking along those lines..

Thanks for the comment.

Hitler did not create Hitler. He was a product of the people of that time. If Adolph had not been there, they would have put somebody else in the same position. For instance, it is generally agreed that the treaty ending WW1 was largely responsible for starting WW2, and A. H. had no part in that treaty.

You might like to read a book by a fellow named Kondratieff. It's called "The Long Wave Cycle". He noticed that big wars happen about 55 years apart, with little wars between them, also about 55 years apart. He followed this cycle in records of market prices for 800 years. A. H. was a product of that cycle, not a cause.

You can not adequately explain human history without supposing the existence of a devil.

"Time flies"... I have often wondered about the phrase. Perhaps not so much about the psychology behind it, but more about flies themselves. If there are time flies, there should also be space flies as well. How many flies are trapped in various anomalies in the space-time -continuum at any given moment? Is it nine?

Flies are special creatures indeed. I think they can glimpse the future. That's why it's so difficult to swat them out of the air.

Is it irrational to say that god created the universe?

There is no connection with belief or evidence. In this topic we have only one item: Genesis 1:1. Two items are required before you can discuss the relationship between them.

And it doesn't matter if you believe it or don't. God said it, that settles it. Those who reject God are on their own, not even Genesis 1:1 going for them.

Okay. Let me try this again..

A belief is a conviction based on personal faith. They cannot be disproved or even contested in a rational or logical manner.

Your remark that it doesn't matter if you believe it or don't. God said it, that settles it. is an example of a belief.

HERE'S A ROSY ECONOMIC PICTURE FOR YOU

In my opinion neither party does enough to curb deficit spending. The GOP get extra points though for being so hypocritical. Ranting and raving about deficits for years, and when given the chance (the control the Legislative and Executive branches) they double-down on unsustainable deficits with their tax cuts.

As far as I know, no tax cut has ever stimulated an economy enough to pay for itself.

People can say Politics are what they always have been. I agree to a point. Though I do believe if Trump was assasinated JFK Style. There would be the biggest nastiest civil war this planet has ever seen.

I hate the current President, but I would never want to see him (or any other President) assassinated. I doubt there would be a civil war because power would transfer to the Vice President.

Interesting answer. Knowing that evil was eventually defeated, just let it be. That makes sense.

I answered that I couldn't have killed an innocent baby. However, had an ancestor of mine died fighting in Europe, or worse, in a concentration camp, it would have been a much more difficult decision. I might have been willing to do the unthinkable.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to do that. Changing one little thing in the past can have unforeseen consequences, I suspect. Not that the scenario presented is any way little, of course.

I had a neighbor I came to know well, who said he knew an 'old' gentleman who couldn't quite forgive himself, because he might have succeeded in killing the adult Hitler once if he'd pulled the trigger of the gun he held. I have thought of that many times in the 40 years since I heard that, and wondered what I would have done.

I feel sorry for your neighbor. If he had a chance to kill Hitler (after it was apparent he was powerful and evil), that would be a terrible burden to carry.

I'd like to think that I would have shot him without hesitation, but that's just fanciful thinking.
