I totally agree and that's why I made a point of never buying cauliflower grown in US community gardens.

Such food is labelled up in the UK so we can choose to avoid it.

Are they idiots? Incompetents? Or are they blindly trusting their instrumentation sites despite things like the heat island effect of urbanization? For example, if you're trusting the instrumentation out of Denver you'd need to realize it's been having an almost runaway heat island effect for the past 30 years owing to rampant urbanization of the area. Meanwhile if you're checking somewhere rural and small or even out in the wilderness, things haven't changed much temp wise in the same time frame. For example I highly doubt they've taken a thermometer up to the summit of Mt. Elbert every day and gotten precise readings for daily highs or lows up there. I know firsthand there's no weather instrumentation up there.


You're even stupider than I thought.

Who gives a shit about your precious Mt. Elbert ? Is there a large population living up there that would benefit from getting "precise readings for daily highs or lows" ? Larger than Denver's ?

Besides : don't you have a Presidential Campaign of some sort to attend to ?

Two things.

1. I don't know how French Revolution is taught in your country but I've found a little something that might endear it to you.

It's called the "Jewish Emancipation" :

"On September 28, 1791, revolutionary France became the second country in Europe, after Poland 500 years earlier, to emancipate its Jewish population. The 40,000 Jews living in France at the time were the first to confront the opportunities and challenges offered by emancipation. The civic equality that the French Jews attained became a model for other European Jews."

Source : Wikipedia
Link : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_emancipation

The article has a little section devoted to the dates of emancipation in various countries.

It looks like Finland, of all European countries, is the most anti-semitic of all, bar one.

Which explains a lot of things as far as our esteemed member Mr. Bunny is concerned.

An awful lot of things ...

2. Hey, I'm sorry to hear that French Revolution was seen as a role model for all those "violent Marxist/Commie and Islamist revolutions" of yours. I don't know what went wrong for them but as far as France is concerned we were kicking ass all over Europe as soon as 1792, a mere three years after the French Revolution of 1789.

So much for stunting development for generations, then.

French teenager in hiding after insulting Islam online
Police have told a French teenager to go into hiding after she received death threats for insulting Islam.

The 16-year-old has been advised to stay away from her lycée (sixth-form college) in southeast France after calls on the internet for her to be killed, raped or attacked.

The girl, named only as Mila, is understood to have been told by officials that she should avoid being seen in public until the controversy fades. She is being given psychological support by the local prosecutor’s office.

Spot-the-nipple is an ancient and well established French game where one has, as the name implies, to spot a nipple.

Here's for instance a 16th century example ...

Image

... and here, a 15th century painting depicting our Lord Jesus playing Spot-the-Nipple with his Holy Mother :

Image

The popularity of the game extended beyond French borders and was adapted in Britain where the locals opted to substitute nipples with less controversial footballs to comply with their "no-sex-please-we're British" tenet.

For your enjoyment, I've devised a game of Spot-the-Nipple for this forum.

Here's the picture :

and the nipple

Enjoy !

Uh Francois - winning the Electoral College is winning "fair and square".

Them's been the rules for nearly 250 years.

Get over it.

While your ancestors were guillotining themselves in an orgy of primitive violence, our Founding Fathers put great thought into setting up our Constitutional Republic and were very wary of mob rule. After all, "Democracy is 2 wolves and 1 sheep deciding what's for dinner".

Here are some choice comments from the smartest people at the time.

Quote:
“Real liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments,” Alexander Hamilton wrote. “If we incline too much to democracy we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of a dictatorship.”

Thomas Jefferson lamented that “a democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.”

James Madison argued that democracies “have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”

John Adams concluded that democracy “never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

I gather that American-styled democracy is "where 49 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 51”.

"Let's party like it's 1453* !"

As Gammon Britain was leaving the EU, in countless city councils of France, British expats and pensioners had to step down from whatever posts they had wormed their way into over the years.

As non-EU foreigners, they will no longer have their say in local politics or have the possibility to be elected.

The local population is being given back it's sovereignty, something British Leavers would approve of, undoubtedly ...

(*) : "The Battle of Castillon was a battle fought on 17 July 1453 in Gascony near the town of Castillon-sur-Dordogne (later Castillon-la-Bataille). A decisive French victory, it is considered to mark the end of the Hundred Years' War. As a result of the battle, the English lost all landholdings in France, except Calais." Wikipedia

In 2016, the purpose of the proposed Brexit referendum was to remove the UKIP threat and make sure Conservatives stay in power.

So far, a resplendent success on both accounts. It's just a pity David Cameron is no longer there to see it.
