They're (whoever they are) promoting insects to eat for protein. Then there will be the snobs that prefer the free range over the farm raised.

AOC can not have rational assessment on "global warming" because she has "degree" in international relations. People like AOC wouldn't last a minute against few serious properly stated scientific questions re "climate science". This is not to mention the fact that she (AOC) is stunning in her superficiality (I still cannot stop laughing from her "immigration" protest in a front of empty parking lot). This is the nature of Democratic Party which is, for all my revulsion towards GOP, clear and present danger to what is left of Republic and American statehood. These are dangerous and very cruel, due to them never experiencing any serious life difficulties, people pushing radical and homicidal agenda. Dangerous freaks.

Infanticide, practiced by hunter-gathere bands of humans,is well documented in ethnographic literature; e.g. in Australia. A way to remain in harmony with Gaia, a very harsh mistress, I am afraid.



Where on the scale of permissability between hallal and haram does does consumption of human flesh fit? Is there fiqh on this?



Yes, primitivism is gaining popularity. Devo was right, many are devolving intellectualy and spiritually.

Similar to Cannon Law, if I recall correctly; permitted in extremis, but is Haram otherwise.

I do not know the details, in analogous situations, the breaking of the Law is supposed to be followed by confessing repentence, prayers, and acts of charity in lieu of fines.


This Commitee of Correspondence is aghast at the suggestion of cannibalism... but seems totally okay with first "option", i.e. "bomb Russia"?

McCain is dead, Hilary is aging, Bolton is probably the second "whistleblower" Bomb Russia is not an option.



IMO the whistleblower group are an organized CIA effort. Most government career people are left of center. This is Brennan at work.


You have expressed some opinions about Brennan in the past that indicate a personal familiarity with him. Do you think Brennan has the ability and the stay behind assets to pull off an impeachment of the president? How would one impede, prevent this?



Yes. I knew him when he was on his first assignment in CIA. Unimpressive brooding presence with his nose jammed up Alan Feiers butt. How? Indict him as head of a seditious conspiracy.


I admit to having 0 knowledge of Alan Feiers. So I went looking.
Iran-Contra, "Cliff Grubbs", CIA station chief in Riyadh. Responsible for the contra side of Iran-Contra for the Neo-cons during the Reagan years. Retired in 1988.
Pardoned by GHWB in 1992 for various political incivilities regarding the contras for which he was convicted in 1992.


Feiers was CoS in Jeddah when I was DATT there. A more hateful man to try to work with can not be imagined. He learned life from his college football coach Woody Hayes. He schemed continuously against one and all, much like Brennan. He should not have been pardoned.

It's pushing it to expect anyone on the Guardian to understand irony. They're more into spin.

I had to google Strulbugs. A long time since I read Swift, is my excuse. Read him as a boy and was more interested in how they managed to tie Gulliver down. Didn't look all that secure, to me.

I suppose Swift's strulbugs could be taken as emblematic of that odd set of politicians and ideologues who in the main rule us. Because it is an odd mixture - doctrinaire progressive, neocon, neoliberal, all in one. Swift says of them They "...would in time become proprietors of the whole nation, and engross the civil power, which, for want of abilities to manage, must end in the ruin of the public."

Only trouble is, our rulers start young and the Strulbugs are old. So I shan't adopt the term. Clintonites, or Blairites over here, is imprecise but good enough for everyday use. But whatever one calls these odd people and the journalists and academics who industriously expound their mantras to us, "ruin of the public" sums up their activities pretty well.
