I Live here — and they have controlled and ran MESA, Arizona since I can remember — they truly believe that they are far more superior than those who do not subscribe to their cult (sorry if anyone on here is offended — but I have experienced this since the 80’s) — They are very cliquish and non-welcoming… well, at least until you refuse their “invitations” to learn about the Morman religion.

At time had one of lowest costs of living . Only time i saw my hosts get agitated was at one lunch at coffee shop cafe when my bill came to like $4.25 ( about a third of what it would cost in NYC) and I was going to leave a $1 tip for the young waitress and all 3 of my hosts went ballistic said I shouldn’t do that , I shouldn’t leave a tip higher than Fifty cents at most , I would raise her expectations etc , they all left 35 or 45 cents for tips to show me proper example. So strange, a real hive mentality, I think about that every time I see these Mormon politicians acting out.

            Also posted on the original shoplifter thread. I saw this thread and thought I would move it up.

            As a UCLA alumnus, the actions of those three “student-athletes” read privileged thugs, are reprehensible. They are an embarrassment to the United States and UCLA. LaVar Ball has turned out to be a bigger ungrateful idiot than his son. Neither of them nor the other two thug thief knuckleheads has any idea what a big bullet they dodged thanks to President Trump. Clearly, these Rhodes Scholars did not embrace the wisdom and philosophy of John Wooden. I have done business in the PRC for more than 25 years and I have lived in the Mainland. During that time, I have had personal knowledge or heard about the horrible conditions that foreigners face in Chinese local jails and prisons. In fact, a colleague of mine spent a night in a rural Chinese police station jail just for inspecting some equipment that was on public land that our client owned. We paid the police a $100 bribe and he was released. There was no paperwork, he was not deported and nothing was stamped in his passport that precluded him from returning to the worker’s paradise. His cell did not have a bench or a bed. Just a bucket. There are foreigners that are jailed in China for a lot less serious offenses such not being able to present identity documents or working on the wrong visa. Granted, many foreigners bring this on themselves, however, there are documented cases of foreigners in China who are wrongly imprisoned (the three basketball amigos are not in this category). Conditions for jailed foreigners are extremely harsh as you can see in the attached story. It is very hard to find the exact figure of how many Americans or other foreigners are incarcerated in the PRC. However, I did find a website that listed the total number of people behind bars in China at about 1.6 million with approximately 8,000 foreign inmates. There was another site which broke down the nationalities of foreign prisoners in Beijing. Out of a population of 300, approximately 30 were from Europe and North America. The rest were mostly from Southeast Asia and Africa. Out of that group, there were only four Americans locked up in Beijing. Looking at other stories about individual Americans jailed in China, I would estimate that there are probably 20 or so Americans in Chinese jails. My point in presenting this information is that the Chinese Government does not bow to pressure from other countries to release their citizens. In fact, they could care less. The average person does not understand what an incredibly amazing feat it was for President Trump to convince Xi Jinping to release those felons. If it was not for President Trump, I do not believe they would have been released. The Chinese do not like to lose face and in most cases Xi Jinping, would rather let them rot in jail then release them. He does not care about world opinion or kowtow to outside pressure. If President Trump’s predecessor had been in office, there is no way the Chicoms would have released them. However, I am sure that if he had triplets, he would have made the point that those boys would all look like him. Remember when that U.S. Navy P-3 made an emergency landing on Hainan Island in the South China Sea? The Chinese milked the incident for all it was worth and humiliated Bush 43. In fact, the Chinese took their time going over the plane. Then, they dismantled it and sent it back to the U.S. three months later in pieces. If the Chinese will do that with an American military aircraft, they have no compunction about punishing the three shoplifters. Someone posted earlier as to whether they were charged. Like my colleague, no action was probably taken and the expulsion was probably not recorded in their passports. So, they were probably were not charged with shoplifting and unfortunately, because of that technicality, the three criminals will not be expelled from my beloved university nor will they be summarily kicked off the basketball team. They will probably receive some kind of SJW diversity award and an apology from Jerry Brown.

      Idk why this has become an issue. Did it expire? Or did he rescind it? Either way, it seems to me that regardless of people’s feelings about animals, this actually protects bug me by assigning a high value to it and accountability. The meat is usually used for the community from what I understand and the money boosts the local economies.

      I must be missing some other objective.

      Furthermore, it is very easy for people in developed nations to sit back and demand these animals be protected. The trample crops of people who are half starving to begin with and many are predatory.

      I have a friend who was finishing her PhD in South Africa and somehow they came upon a seriously injured giraffe. The veterinarian students in the program worked to save the giraffe at great expense and labor. The locals were ANGRY because they felt the better use of resources was to use the giraffe for meat and they were bewildered and frustrated at why the Americans couldn’t understand this. They see this very differently than we do.

      I like animals btw so please don’t lecture me about this. I’m just trying to be fair and analytical about it.

        I’d say 99+% of those whining never had to go hungry or see their children crying because the local fauna ate their garden ! Or had to arm themselves to escort their children in groups to attend school, or keep them from playing outside. I recall accounts ( by people with first-hand experience in Africa ) of lions leaping over a six-foot high thorn corral ( bomba in Swahili ) killing a 400-lb. cow and leaping out with it . Anyone, anywhere, living ( and depending upon their cattle, sheep, etc. or grains and other produce for their economic survival ) in close proximity to wildlife is well aware of their predations ! Even in NJ one deer “browses” but forty strip crops bare ! I’ve seen one black bear destroy a quarter acre of standing corn in a night ! Or strip a fruit tree bare while breaking grafted branches to get higher fruit .

        Sad to see PDJT leaning toward a policy that supports poaching and waste of a valuable resource all while inflicting the “costs’ upon those unable to even protest !

If he doesn’t … then he’s an elephant killer. IMO he should use the same foreign policy principal that we are familiar with: let the locals figure it out.

          It’s true that Americans and Europeans have a lack of understanding about this. Settlers wiped out the cougar population in the Midwest; they were an obvious threat. Apparently, they’re starting to reappear, but the point is, the settlers didn’t think twice about destroying the threat. If American farmers had herds of elephants stampeding across their crops, and gorillas stealing all the orchard fruit, they’d probably have a different attitude towards elephants and gorillas.

        Another point point is the revenue big game hunting brings into these countries. Big game hunting revenue also provides motivation against poaching as it provides value to the animals. Wise hunting is better for the animals and the long term survival than indiscriminate poaching which is often wasteful. I would assume that the nest does not go to waste when some kills for trophy hunting as that is a planned, legal event for which both the gov and involved local businesses are well paid. Win/win. Practical.

          I have never attended your church and have no plans to.

          Father Mike Bergero: Many years after Cardinal Wojtyla had his dream and had become Pope John Paul II, he made a pilgrimage to Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis. In the Message of Reconciliation he delivered there, the Pontiff spoke of the Saint’s love for animal, as well as human, beings. And he likened that inclusive love to an anticipation of the Peaceable Kingdom, envisioned by the Prophet Isaiah, a world in which all God’s creatures will live in peace with each other.

          The Pope also said that the “solicitous care, not only toward [people] but also toward animals and nature in general,” that St. Francis demonstrated is “a faithful echo of the love with which God in the beginning pronounced his ‘fiat,’ which brought them into existence.” And, the Pope added, “We, too, are called to a similar attitude.”

          Some who read these remarks are surprised to find in them such strong support of God’s other creatures. They are surprised to hear the Pope refer to the lives of animals as a manifestation of God’s love: lives that deserve our “solicitous care.” But I was not surprised. By the time I came across a copy of the message he gave at Assisi, I had read God’s Broker and the lengthy account of the Pope’s dream. And I knew that if John Paul II had not wanted this very revealing dream to be published, it would never have appeared in print.

              I’ve always loved animals. I remember asking my dad, a minister, when I was a kid, if animals went to Heaven, because it didn’t seem to me that it would be Heaven without them. My dad told me that he thought so, that the Bible talks about the souls of men and animals in scripture. He took that to mean we would see our furry friends again. 

              People who have had near-death experiences recount being met by much loved furry friends. Whether someone believes those experiences or not doesn’t matter to me. I plan to be met by my Savior, the people I love who have gone before me and a swarm of cats and dogs. Big party with lots of hugs, loud purring and waging tails. Praise, loved ones and flying fur.  Sounds like Heaven to me.

            That’s because he’s right. That verse refers to HUMANS, not animals. Despite Darwinism and the green movement, we are not animals (though some folks choose to act like them).

            Genesis 1:28

            28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

              With dominion goes responsibility.

              I agree that the Mathew verse is explicitly for our fellow humans. One can, and maybe should, make the argument that we should take care of animals too, but humans have priority. Meat is explicitly referenced, and some clothing, also referenced, comes from animals.

              The Genesis verse entrusts man with dominion over every living thing. That entails great responsibility. Moreover, it makes explicit that we are tasked with replenishing the earth.

              Step backwards in that same chapter in Mathews, we find in the parable of the talents, that the Lord holds us responsible for those gifts and charges which he has entrusted to us. Many things can be encompassed under this parable, not just money. And Genesis makes it clear that God has entrusted us with care of the earth and every living thing.

              So, how do we care for our fellow humans, and help replenish these animals? Clearly, draconian anti-poaching laws fail in both regards. Conservation works for many species, but will it work for a species that has a long childhood and strong family bonds?

            Hunting does not equate to inhuman treatment. And I say this from a pro hunting point of view and as a person who would never, ever buy meat from a factory farm or meat mass produced/mass slaughtered. Most meat sold in the grocery stores and in restaurants if produced and killed inhumanly.

            Most hunting is done in a human manner (in thei natural environment, after having lead a natural, free life, with (hopefully) a single kill shot or put out of their misery quickly with little if any stress leading up to the moment of death.

      Building a wall will take an extended period of time and will not ever be perfectly secure without supplemental electronic perimeter security to detect intrusions, and a division of armed human guards for direct enforcement. Militarizing the border is also necessary, with or without the wall, and the wall only decreases the total number of human patrol agents also required to supplement the wall. So militarizing the border can for the interim time during wall construction be fully effective at securing the border, and will work to do the job while the wall is being built. Wall construction should not delay completely effective border security being implemented right now by alternative methods.

      The number of border patrol and border security agents can be gradually reduced as the wall is completed. A secure border can be achieved long before completion of the physical wall that is being built. Border Watchers could live at permanent border watch stations, with watch towers similarly as Coast Watchers and Lighthouse Keepers, and Forest Fire Prevention Smoke Watchers have done for years. Surveillance sensors and cameras and drones can be technology used as a force multiplier for border security. Whatever kind of trouble may come ….it can’t and never could outrun Motorola, or Nitro Express.

        Breitbarf has their readers parroting tabloid fodder about McConnell being behind the Moore accusations and none of them stop to think that it’s a silly tactic for GOPe since the deadline for ballot withdrawal was long time ago. The yearbook is pure Wapo, Allred = Democrat. But that doesn’t stop the Breitbarfers.

        The headlines on President reads: Trump is Arnold Schwarzenagger 2.0 without Bannon. Trump would not be president if it weren’t for Terry’s death. If Bannon could take credit for the wins overseas this week, he would try! But he can’t.

        Apparently also, Luther was anti-Maga and against the Wall according to Breitbarfers. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Then in the court of public opinion, dissembling, with the hope the President moves off his opinion that was judicious and accurate, that he will go on twitter and defend the judge (negating his opinion about conscience and the court of law). If he is drawn into the trap of defending Moore, the silent cases will emerge that is the underage more serious allegations of misconduct.

                  Besides there has been a clear attempt to strategically roll out the accusations. Just as the accusation of dating the 14 y.o. starts to unravel with claims of past false accusations, Allred drags out yearbook girl with claims of assault. Just as the yearbook starts looking like a forgery, they drag out even more accusations.

                  They truly knew the weakness of these accusations, so they are accompanied by ‘women never lie’ campaign and a shell game that allows the media to suppress the collapsing of accusations while claiming that new allegations prove the old.

                  I have no Idea what he really did or didn’t do, nor how many will lie about him. But guilty or innocent, I expect to see more and more accusations, and I expect some will prove false.

    The FBI received the first installment of the dossier in July 2016. It received later installments as they were written at the height of the presidential campaign, which means the bureau has had more than a year to investigate the allegations in the document.”

    Interesting tidbit: She was chosen to be the power player of the week two years ago and turned it down, citing that she wanted to get some accomplishments under her belt first. As the youngest person ever to be elected to Congress, she wanted her first impression to be that she is a workhorse, that she invests herself in learning about policy issues and adds substantive ideas to the discussion. She’s definitely a rising star.

      100% agree. We have been a soy and canola free family for almost 20 yrs. I was raised vegan and with p,entry of soy and have the health problems to prove it, including infertility (so thankful for ous son!!!) Never been healthier than after I began to eat healthy meat (small farm raised).

      If eating soy free please know that it goes by many names on labels bad is often the “vitamin e”, veg oil, lecithin and mixed tocopherols unless otherwise specified. Another hidden source is in pan stays which will not be included on labels but will still make a difference in your health.

      My thyroid acts up any time I have so much as a trace of soy so I have learned this the hard way! I also have to watch what the cows are fed who dairy I eat or I get what I call a second hand soy reaction which is less than if I eat it directly but still a soy reaction. Eggs, too, can give me a mild reaction so soy free chicken feed is also important. The organic label does not mean soy free just organic soy. Beef must be grass finished as well as grass fed or it will probably have had soy in the fed the last 6 weeks before slaughter.

      I have (jokingly) supposed to my husband that the intro of soy into the diet of Americans was a long term Chinese or Japanese plot to eventually defeat us by weakening our men, reducing our ability to reproduce and wrecking our thyroid health.

      Not hard to understand the science behind this. Soy is a natural phytoestrogen. Women often take phytoestrogens to relieve menopausal symptoms.

      The substitution of soy protein (cheaper) for real protein sources in our food supply has long been a concern to me. An example: take a look at a can of tuna – why would tuna need soy protein added??? It’s to cut the amount of real tuna – cheaper. Our food supply has been being adulterated [look at high fructose corn syrup (has to be processed by the liver, harder on the liver; regular sugar doesn’t go through the liver) – cheaper than real sugar, but causes increased cholesterol issues] for decades by Corporate America food companies.

      People have more health problems today, in part, due to what they’re doing to our food supply (along with lifestyle issues). More health problems–> increased healthcare costs.

      I believe we are estrogenizing the population – which of course includes males. Theorically, one could ask where have all the “men” gone?

        Oh, and to speak to the point about the testosterone loss, taking estrogen in (soy) causes estrogen dominance instead of testosterone. Every male has some estrogen, as every female has some testosterone. It’s the amount each person has which gives the dominate gender characteristics.

          I have wondered if the dramatic increase in phytoestrogens in our diet and environment are part of what is causing such an increase in effeminate men (along with culture) and the number of males who are “born that way”. Some truly are more effeminate since birth and what might be the cause/s of this? Soy in the diet is new to the west and unfermented soy in such copious amounts is new to the human diet period. Soy was not used like this even in Asia. This is a significant change that is less than 100 yrs old.

            Stands to reason, they’re feeding farm animals soy protein and feeding people directly with soy protein added. I’ve believed for years, adding estrogen into the food supply like this, has caused an increase in the numbers of effeminate men in the population.

            Spreading the word about what soy protein (distinguish from soybean oil – it’s the protein which is the culprit) is at least a start. Monsanto, ConAgra et al won’t like it, but the truth about the adulteration of our food should be out there.

            BTW, this isn’t conspiracy therapy thinking, it’s simply the reality that Big Business (food industry) are making changes to natural foods – in numerous ways – which are harmful to people. We’ve not evolved to take in high fructose corn syrup, soy protein in large quantities, and even beet sugar (cheaper) than cane sugar. Along with the sedentary lifestyle of many people (note how sedentary our children are in school and out now), food tinkering–> higher rates of obesity, elevated cholesterol, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases–> increased morbidity and mortality rates.

        Yes, drenching an infant in soy based formula is just awful!

        Even milk based formulas are not 100% soy free. When my son was a baby I needed to supplement with the bottle and could not find ANY 100% soy free formulas. They may be soy Protein free and therefore qualify to say soy free for allergy purposes as allergies are to the soy protein but they still have soy oils, lecithin, etc., and therefore have the phytoestrogens. I searched and searched. I found that formula recipes are partially mandated by law and some soy inclusion was mandated at that point. I figured it was a nod to the soy farmer lobby. That was 10 yrs ago so many now there are some truly soy free formulas.

        If I knew then what I know now I would have the confidence to make a homemade formula, esp. as I was only supplementing the nursing. At the time the only homemade formula I had heard of was the Tom Cruise molasses recipe and that did not sound healthy! But there are sound recipes out there if they are needed, esp. if only supplementing breastfeeding. (research carefully!)

    There have been other recent articles, about how children’s blood contains proteins that have an ‘anti-aging effect’ on older people, when given a transfusion.

    Apparently it is a big thing now with the Elite, to have a transfusion of child’s blood.
    The effects are reportedly almost instantaneous…giving the recipient youthful energy levels and a more youthful appearance.

        The left loves to tell us there is no right or wrong, all things are relative, but that means, of course, they’re always right and anyone who disagrees is wrong. However, they give themselves away when they lie or cover up what they’re doing or have done…or fear exposure. If they believed their actions were right, there would be no need to lie or cover them up. Lerner knew and did it anyway, certain, I’m sure, that Queen Hillary would reign.

    If they did, they could easily retrieve billions to help repay deficits. (According to Ortel)
