In Scotland, 'Aye' Means No to England

Scotland has no reason to love England. The Acts of Union of 1707 was a shotgun marriage at best and an annexation on the order of the Anschluss Ostereich - the annexation of Austria by Nazi Germany of March 1938 at worst. Bankruptcy of the Scottish elites in the 1690's and the threat of English invasion caused the Scottish Parliament to acquiesce to the Acts of Union. Scotland's honor demands Scots separate from perfideous Albion for ever.

Today there is no distinct Pound Scots; but Scotland's three largest clearing banks (the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Bank of Scotland and the Clydesdale Bank) still print paper notes denominated in pounds sterling. These notes may be accepted as payment throughout the United Kingdom, but are much more commonly seen in Scotland; they represent the same Pound Sterling value as do Bank of England notes in England and Wales. - From Wikipedia
If Christians are in trouble, at least they are "People of the Book", and protected, if they are willing to subjugate themselves ti Islam, I'm in worse shape. I'm an agnostic, and as such I'm an infidel, and subject to being murdered.

So, when employers cannot ship manufacturing to low wage countries, they will replace workers with robots. Retailers will replace salespeople with robots or "kiosks". Just out of curiosity, who will have the money to buy the goods and services these mercenary "employers" provide? Mr Hunter seems to think his job is secure, but computers are writing "news" stories based on keywords. Of course, replacing Mr Hunter might be a bad idea, if the results are more rational than this screed.

The author is either a fool or a knave. There is no denying the plain fact that human sexuality is inborn, and is not a simple either-or proposition, but rather a range that covers everything from absolute opposite sex attraction to absolute same sex attraction, and everything in between. My guess is that he is afraid of his own attractions, and wants to deny they exist. Good luck with that.

An 'LBJ law' for Kentucky?

Danny252 Wrote: Sep 09, 2014 10:05 AM
I think a case could be made that the Kentucky law is unconstitutional, on the grounds that it sets conditions for candidacy for the offices of president and senator not found in the constitution. The Supreme Court has already ruled to this point, which is why former Governor Edwards, a convicted felon, can run for congress in Louisiana, and Louisiana law cannot stop him.

Like antibiotics? Or automobiles? Or electronics? No "green revolution"? I'd like to watch you do 1894-style "work". I'd be willing to bet you couldn't do it. Me, I wouldn't have to worry about it, since odds are I'd be dead.
And your point?
