even though there hosted on flickr?

I imagine the "authorities" would go after a big corporation like Yahoo to get what they want instead of Ian's freetalklive.com.   As for the ones I posted, they were not uploaded by me and were found at the top  of the search results using a major search site.

It's really whether they have it in for a person or not.  (Read the article in my signature.)  Federal courts have ruled that non-sexual nudity is not pornography, but we hear about people getting into trouble over legal stuff.  I once heard that under one state law, the movie Titanic would be considered child porn.

I agree about stressing things that don't rally seem to matter much.  I have never listened to an entire show of his, so I can't speak with authority on him other than the clips I have heard.  You watch the video posted at the beginning of this thread and he goes on about how the Fed is a "private" "for-profit" corporation.  Why is this constantly stressed?  Does it matter that much even if it is true?  How much time has Alex spent exploring how the club of elites is controlling everyone?  I wonder how much he has spent reading or listening to Mises, Rothbard or anybody from the Mises Institute.  Does he have any understanding of how a business cycle works?  I don't know.  I know this stuff might not make entertaining radio for his type of audience, but knowing it is good to know what to stress.

As for "private corporations", I have a hard time thinking of much of big business as private anymore, especially certain sectors including nearly all banking, big 3 auto, most US airlines, large professional sports leagues, most of the health care service providers, and I'm sure many other areas I am not thinking of right now.

Whether or not he believes Ickes, I don't know.  I don't listen to Ickes.  Maybe it is hyperbole for him to say he agrees with him.  Hasn't he said that he agrees with Ron Paul?  I know he has him on his show a lot, and Ron Paul has completely rejected the 9/11 kook theories.  Has Alex ever commented on Paul's beliefs on this or any of the other area where he would disagree?

"This user" to whom I am replying is free to regard anything he likes as a generic term.

"This user" who is replying to you will continue to alternately use "he" or "she" as generic terms, and not give a damn what you consider right or wrong.  I did so throughout my PhD dissertation, which will be defended on Thursday.  I'll be sure to let you know if they come down on me for sometimes using "she" as a generic term. 

PhD dissertation?  I'm sure they are more likely to look favorably on you for using "she" in that way.

The choice of being grammatically incorrect in order to be politically incorrect.  May as well jump on the national service bandwagon while you're at it.

 :lol:

There is absolutely nothing grammatically incorrect about the following sentence: "When a researcher is attempting to gain accurate information in her field study, she needs to bear in mind that certain witnesses will be unreliable." 

You do, however, win Ridiculously Hyperbolic Statement of the Year award. 

True, if it has been previously established that the researcher is female.  Wrong, if it is a generic any researcher.



One of the many things I really liked about Harry Browne, the 1996 and 2000 LP Presidential candidate was that he always avoided this "he/she" and "his or her" stuff in his speeches and writings the way that so many do because of the clumsiness and PC that polluted the language sometime in the middle of the Twentieth Century.  "He" is not excluding anyone.  It was at one time well accepted that it referred to male or female if no gender was specified.

Agree.  "They" is plural.  "He" is singular. "He or she", "his or her" "he/she" "(s)he" annoy the shit out of me.  It's just mangling the language to be PC.  Always use "he", "his", "him" etc. if the gender is unknown.

Umm, no.  I will use "he" when I feel like it, and "she" when I feel like it.  It acknowledges that women exist without mangling any language. 

"He" refers to male or female if the gender is unknown.

Gender neutral use of "she" and "her" are the most annoying.  Add to that words like "herstory" and "wimmin".

Anarchist (agorist) in principle but I have no problem with working towards a minarchist type government first. Once the government controls nothing but the roads and a watered-down judicial system, I think it will be easy to convince people that even those things can be handled by the market.

The government people know that they need to continually scare people into believing they need the government people.  It's all about job security.

Imagine if the US hadn't invaded Iraq under Bush 41, and it also hadn't stirred up a war elsewhere that the warmongers would all believe was absolutely necessary for our survival.  Would people still believe the massive military was necessary nearly two decades after the end of the Soviet Empire?  That is millions of military people out of the military and the bankruptcy of corporations that don't know how to serve customers who willingly pay for their services.

I'm guessing guys touch each other in gay ways in there.

That's because you think about gay things too much.

Only when people post too many gay threads.

Only voluntarily consented to  government is legitimate.  It would likely be very minimal except for the masochists.

They is for people.

But not for "a person of indeterminate gender". He has always been the gender-neutral pronoun, until the 1970s when the MLA just up and decided it wouldn't be anymore. But they didn't provide a suitable alternative, and "he or she" is inconvenient. If someone has a problem with me using "he" to refer to a generic person, that someone can bite me.

Agree.  "They" is plural.  "He" is singular. "He or she", "his or her" "he/she" "(s)he" annoy the shit out of me.  It's just mangling the language to be PC.  Always use "he", "his", "him" etc. if the gender is unknown.

None in the city where I am, but there are some nearby in Chicago and Cal Shitty.

I am going to vandalize some of those some time.

Indoor plumbing is for fags.

I agree.  That is why I don't clean myself when the lakes and rivers are frozen.  I also go in the snow.  I've got to prove ... something.

Shit yeah. That's a motherfuckin' pimp bath. Ain't no tub for no bitches up in there.




I'm guessing guys touch each other in gay ways in there.
