    AJ Oliver got a reaction from lateral in CCC application online with council.......   
    Well, they may have a point. When average folks need "consultants" to get permits, etc. done with local government, 
    it is a bad sign. In countries that do not work very well - Brazil, India, Italy and I'm sure elsewhere, skid greasing is a very big business. 
    Thanks y'all for letting me hang around !!

    Well, I complain about my government too - frequently. 
    But y'all, on the other hand, live in what is generally regarded 
    as a country with just about the most honest and efficient 
    government in the world. 
    98% of the people on the planet would trade their government for yours 
    in a heartbeat. (Including moi)

    Hey Mr. @Knot Me... maybe 
    What US history did I get wrong when I wrote what is below? (Always trying to learn things) 
    And Mr.    @Knot Me... maybe  You wrote "Actually worse than that when AJ demonstrates such deep ignorance of his own countries history." 
    It should be "country's" (possessive), not "countries" 
    I'm not a great historian, but my grammar is not too shabby.

    Or, as Gandhi put it when asked what he thought of Western Civilization  . .    said . .

    now that is a seriously genius idea . . 
    Well, Mr. AA I do my poor best to take a clear-eyed look at reality, and go where it takes me. 
    You cannot believe how much trouble you can get into by doing that !

    Good article here by Dean Baker, US economist. 
    He makes a number of good points about patent protection, and US Corona-V vaccine research. 
    There appears to be some profiteering going on already. 
    I consider him to be a credible source. He frequently corrects major US papers on their economics reporting.

    Yeah, thanks. 
    All those posts by Rehab made it difficult to access what others had written.

    I'll drink to that - in fact, I already did.

    This is about US politics - let me know if you rather not get into it. 
    Last Monday, the far right in the US spread rumors (written and promulgated by the Right themselves) that busloads of Antifa were on the way to our town to bust it up, and that the National Guard was mobilized. It worked -  it made many of us fearful and suspicious, and scared the crap out of people. Businesses boarded up and sent workers home. Lots of money was lost because of the lies of weasels. And do you know what the response of our local Reich was?? They laughed about it - thought it was just so hilarious. 
    As it turned out, we had a very big march for a town of our size; totally peaceful and w/o incident. The police provided escorts.

    So in the midst of the second warmest April on record for the planet,
    one of the few outliers has been the US Sweetwater Seas - where it has been 
    too cold and northeasterly to sail. (and May has been even worse)   schadenfreude'd 
    I'm thinking Saturday

    Dear Mr. Scott - 
    I may have misunderstood you. You may have been referring to a news show from OZ also called "60 Minutes". 
    I do not know enough about the OZ version of the show to have an opinion about its bias, or lack thereof. 
    60 Minutes US is rated very good on sourcing and accuracy, but with a liberal slant - whatever that means 
     https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/cbs-news/
    It has deteriorated of late with a fixation on celeb news.

    The segment from the program that was cited was a 
    direct clip from a FAUX "news" broadcast. 
    Are you saying that the tape showing Carlson and Gaetz is fabricated? 
    They are sitting their lying their butts off, knowing that lives will be forfeit 
    I cannot respect that - putting it mildly. 
    (And, ah, you don't seriously believe either FOX or Trump, do you? 
    They both have a lengthy track record.) 
    And furthermore . .

    Rehab apparently thinks he has a free speech right to walk into your business, 
    start yabbering, and make life harder for your other customers. 
    I think the CO honchos have shown remarkable forbearance here. 
    At some point, their business will be hurt by this behavior - if it has not been already

    Do you think you might give it a rest? 
    If you post one or two new threads per week, that would be sufficient. 
    You seem to be making it hard for others to get a word in.
