Oil, light sweet(not sour) crude for Europe. North Sea crude reserve's dwindling. Russia's crude supply is not dependable(due to Crimea, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, etc.)

Like Saudi Arabia and Iran in the lost decade of the 1970's, Russia will use oil as an arm-twisting economic weapon, this time on Europe(excluding Russia which doesn't want to be just one of many) because it still harbors hope that it will reconstitute the Soviet Union someday and is working towards the goal.

Syria is just a chess piece for Russia to block Europe from quenching the oil thirst with Persian Gulf oil so Europe will become dependent on Russia's oil and cannot stand up against Russia's re-annexation of Europe.

When Trump's base realizes betrayal.

Chris Hedges says "Widespread social unrest will ignite when Donald Trump’s base realizes it has been betrayed. I do not know when this will happen. But that it will happen is certain.

Truth. Trump is just a symptom of a much bigger problem. NEOLIBERALISM and it's good friend, CAPITALISM. They must go down together.

They go down, people like Trump go down. We need an economy and a social structure and ideologies that work for all of us, not just the 1% greedy creeps.

He overshoots too quickly and is overboard sometimes, such as calling for death penalties in the so-called "Central Park Five" "Wilding" case of the brutal rape of a Wellesley-College-educated young woman investment-banker jogger.

I hate women being raped so I agree with his motive(New York NY was going through a very bad stretch of rampant crimes then, remember squeegee men? They're back! So nostalgic, yeah; getting rid of the horse dung near Central Park's southern end was Mayor de Blasio's top priority; oh, poor walking petfood with manes... ; ((( ) but injustice(not by Trump directly but the frenzy he had whipped up could have affected the case) was done in haste and pre-judgment.

Mr. Doughnuts, please don't say, "I missed the doughnuts."

Justice needs its due diligence done thoroughly - no strawmen or "alternative[sic] facts" are ever allowed, yes, walls, walls, walls to block fake "reality"! Think with the brain, not with the void in the heart.

Doing pilot trials on a small scale before full-scale deployment or running new and old processes in parallel in duplication to compare differences for a while can help iron out the kinks beforehand. Before pulling the camping trailer out on a long and faraway trip, try camping next to your home for a few nights first to test what provisions are still missing.

Yep! He's a right wing demagogue for sure. Like all conservatives, there's no honesty or sincerity in him. The only evil he sees is that which he projects into the straw men he sets up for his imbecile base to knock down.

I knew what was in the "wonderful video" decades ago. I've sparred many times with flip on the effect of that, inflation - money that people hold buying less and less while things people need costing more and more. I claim that our government creates inflation stealing wealth from everyone who has any financial wealth and gives it to the borrowers(rich people with access to credit "created out of thin air" - they can outbid anyone with the funny money, then let inflation and tax write-offs diminish the debt). In my opinion, that's immoral but then there're lots of people like flip around to confuse the masses. He loves the highly inflationary 1970's when the Semites(both half-brothers', Ishmael's and Isaac's, descendants) got us by our balls(alright they didn't Invade and occupy the Bronx[Isaac's descendants evacuated from it]; OMG, I've just realized that the map of New York, NY harbors a gigantic phallic diagram visible from space! Berlusconitis, yikes!). Yom Kiss-ass, does anyone still remember the day when we got brown from being downstream of the global anal sphincter which saw action?

In the 1970's, my Mom complained of grocery prices shooting up; our home was broken into; and my Dad lost his job(I did appreciate him getting the time to help me with "masculinity" preparations due to his impeccably good taste) so we became domestic refugees(here's where I appreciated guns or just the reputation of such in lily-white neighborhoods). All that occurred because some Semites(Ishmael's) wanted to drive other Semites(Isaac's) into the Mediterranean Sea.

Why do you think that the Jews have been persecuted worldwide for ages? Yes, this is it. It's not just Hitler who finally got it. Eventually, almost everyone gets it and boots out the Jews. The Holocaust(Jews invent new words because they are the "Chosen People") "transferred" ownership of the Jews' gold to the Swiss, didn't it? Very nice way to "burn away" some "money - Mammon's," too! I guess it's called "re-balancing" or "creative destruction" in some boardroom circles.

Yes, algebra, algorithm, and azimuth were all derived from Arabic but Arabic numerals and zero are Not originally Arabs'. They were Hindu or Babylonian. Islamic conquests allowed them to be appropriated.

I'm on here to make the Unconscious conscious and I aspire to serve my people. Yes, I have even discovered that I was Unconscious(of my pubescent neighborhood-girl babysitter "sexually molesting" me and my first [sexually charged?] sex-educational experience being "gay" with my neighborhood-boy playmate[I regret telling him about female anatomy I learnt from my babysitter and joining him on his "field research" because the neighborhood preschooler girl became embarrassed peeing into her chamber pot - we were so amazingly scientifically minded as preschoolers, with the observations and the reducing to practice to answer the question, "from which orifice does urine come out?"]) so I was truly humbled by the 》kämpfen《 effort and results.

Climate change and lousy rulers are the other causes(the U.S. and N.A.T.O. were not and are not powerful enough to precipitate/halt these) of misery and migrations in the world. The crisis in Syria and Europe is caused by these.

The First Amendment is for keeping our federal government out of religions, not the other way around. Colonies (which became states later) came first and they long had their own religious sects. That's why overcoming the sectarian divide was so vital for the founding fathers. Not transcending the religious sectarian divide at the session-opening prayer meant not getting down to the business of uniting the colonies to fight the British Empire to avoid getting hanged separately. Of course, the converse of the First Amendment also came about as a largely unintended side effect.

On the International Space Station, carrying out the five required daily prayers(is a day 24 hours or closer to 1.5 hours for very near-to-Earth orbits? Imagine doing five prayers every 90 minutes. Not much time is left to do anything else!) while facing Mecca is a fairly challenging task for any Muslim onboard. Watch this video clip and try to aim at Mecca while praying to Allah. You probably need something like a human-size gerbil-exercise-ball with equatorial and azimuthal computerized controls. Islam hails from a time when space flights did not exist. "New spacetime, new rules" is how I would handle it, "No Haj is required of any Muslim(e.g., in the Family of TRAPPIST-1, "per aspera ad astra ...") outside of the Family of the Sun."

I'm not slamming Islam. The ancient Greeks used Euclidean geometry in their city states but they clearly had an inkling that the Earth was Not flat as Euclidean geometry requires. We do the same thing, too. I doubt very much that Boeing uses relativistic physics when designing their jet-planes. The rules must "flex" to fit the new situations but they must be "good enough."

I'm saying that the U.S. is Exceptional in observing the First Amendment so anyone who lives under the dominion of the U.S. had better observe it as well. No "And, If, or But" to it. It's a part of our national definition.

I concede that the Dutch certainly has an honorary place in this regard, being willing to exercise free speech triggering many other countries to follow(I certainly feel a bit tingly proud that the mental tradition of the U.S.[its Saturday-Night-Live First-Amendment style] has been expanded with the help of the Dutch worldwide). I'm not totally surprised because there are Stuyvesant Town, Stuyvesant Place/Street (the battle-hardened Peter Stuyvesant who surrendered New Netherlands to the British is still revered and honored centuries later by heeding the people's wish for peace, not bad at all for a so-called "loser" who was obviously not a coward at all), Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant, Stuyvesant Avenue, and Man-heeft-ding's Amsterdam Avenue(I've fond memory of spending time there shopping with my Dad, doing "masculinity" preparations) running in similar North-South fashion as the Broadway. I think FDR was of Dutch descent so yes, we even have FDR Drive(where the Damned Pothole was; there was a big one on West 57th Street, too, near the great restaurant Russian Tea Room next to Carnegie Hall). I don't mind, "Yay, Amerika first, Nederland second!" Many countries' videos are pretty neat tongue-in-cheek fun introductions to the countries' distinctive characteristics.

I can see and feel some of the "Dutch concubine" feelings because I have a Big Brother. As a young child, I didn't get to choose what movies we watched(some definitely overaged to me, especially the foreign-language films) or to which beach we went swimming with His girlfriend but all in all, it was fun. He paid, including for cocoanut drinks and other goodies. Oh, I've just realized from where I'd acquired my taste for the cocoanuts in piña coladas! Rum, rum, it'll be tough for me to become a Muslim - my brother spoilt me with the cocoanut flavor. The Road to Hell is paved with freebies. Whether White Russian, Black Russian, Bloody Mary, or man heeft ding, no matter, only piña colada is the true love for me!
