As of this writing Keith Richards is 76.  He looks like he's 96.

I remember years ago when he was still a Heroine addict that he would get regular blood transfusions.  I would imagine at this point in his life he no longer puts narcotics into his body unless it is prescribed for whatever procedure he's had done. 

I saw the Stones in 1977.  I thought they were old then!

The popular belief of Science and the Media in the 1970's was that an ICE AGE was imminent.  I lived through it and remember the hand wringing, and being taught about it in Science class.  The causes were man made pollutants, including industrial pollutants, an CFC's. 

Bottom line?  It NEVER HAPPENED.  So the scientists FAILED.  The MEDIA FAILED, and thank goodness we didn't further ruin an already poor economy by the "fixes" they wanted to put in place.  Oh, they succeeded in SCARING the weak minded just like they do today.

Yes we are becoming Tribal.  However, once it was OK to be tribal as an American united in respect and admiration for our country and fellow citizens.  Now this tribalism which used to be American Patriotism is now being called Racist by the Democrats and Progressives.  It is now considered White Nationalism, or even White Supremacy to be pro-American. 

Now we even have the term "American" being called Racist.  When will it en?

References?

Yes I was there, though I only read newspaper articles about it at the time. From what I've read more recently, imminent ice age was never anything but an extreme minority, fringe piece of speculation. The consensus was always, next ice age in maybe a few thousand years. Global cooling, possible from aerosols, but that never had enough support, either observational or theoretical, to be considered an actual prediction.

Remember that the news media have always run with every scientific paper predicting or even speculating on catastrophe without regard for how strong the evidence is, or even whether it has a lot of support in the scientific community. Catastrophism sells newspapers and TV ads.

If you have actual references to scientific review articles or papers that contradict this, please post them. I don't put much stock in what the news media said (or say today) about scientific matters since they generally haven't the background to put things in the proper context.

What was the result and outcome of the claims the scientific community made at the time?  I don't need studies or links to show what happened.  We have decades of history.   NOTHING...…….

You're squirming.

Telling Americans to go back to where they came from because they have brown skin is utterly racist.

That is utterly a LIE.

No, he told them to go back to where they came from because they are assholes.  That they happen to have brown skin is irrelevant.

^^^^This.  THEY brought up race, and skin color, not Trump.  He said nothing about it, yet the Media and Dems (same thing) call him the racist one.

Following the azure path to failure would be returning to teh days of GW Bush and his policies of appeasing the lefties hoping that they might like him for it.

Instead they turned up their hatred and demanded he sit silently by and take it, which has resulted in the pussified segment of the republican party that can't seem to find their balls with a flashlight and girl scout troop.

Appeasing leftist communists (democrats) only empowers them. They never offer a bit of respect in return.

I have NO problem with what Trump said, and glad he calls a spade a spade.  "Republicans" like GWB, Jeb, Romney, McCain, etc are WORSE than Democrats.  My point was that Azure was truthfully telling how the Left interprets, and uses this stuff.  No, it is not a valid reason for Trump to stop doing it, nor a reason to appease the Leftist/Media cabal.  Appeasement = weakness and failure.

Instead of looking at WHO, look at what.

Azure, like her brethren of academic marxism assumes that the President made racist remarks NOT because they were racist, but because some whiners say they were.

Facts mean nothing in the upside down world of academia and the academics are spreading their lies and hypocrisy far and wide because the media and education cabal have played along like the stupid people they are.

I interpreted what she said a bit differently.  More that it is easy for the Media and the Left (same thing) to take what Trump said out of context, and use it against him.  Fair or not, it is what they do.  It is easy for them to sway the weak minded with the PERCEPTION Trump is racist due to out of context statements.  Trump said NOTHING racist, but there are a lot of people that just hear what they want to hear.

Fo the conservatives here, all someone has to do is report something with which they agree.  No need to check little things like where the data came from or had anyone reputable actually reviewed it.  I'm just glad all science doesn't work like this, or we'd not have a lot of the amazing technological and medical advances with which we've been blessed as a society.

Yet none of the "climate scientists" nor their political masters, can answer ANY of the questions I posed above.

Margaret Hoover had John Delaney on Firing Line last week - one of the saner of the Dem candidates IMO. Anyway it came up that at least AOC and Sanders are proponents of an economic philosophy called Modern Monetary Theory. Seems MMTers believe the government cannot become insolvent if it borrows in its own currency, all they need to do is print more of it - so that might explain some of it.

So maybe they won't turn us into Greece after all - maybe more like Venezuela... <yikes>

Yes, money, like anything else is a COMMODITY with the same economic and market forces controlling its VALUE.  "Print" more of it and/or make is extremely cheap to acquire (artificially increased supply) makes its value go down across the board.  Think 1930's Germany where wheelbarrows full of Deutsche Marks were worthless. 

As we know BAD things happen when people can not afford to buy their basic needs.  At that point ammunition becomes the most valuable commodity.

The disgusting attention whore managed to drive away HALF of the expected viewers based on viewership in other years.

Way to go stupid people!!!

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/07/nice-work-rapinoe-us-soccer-final-viewership-down-by-almost-half-thanks-to-trump-bashing-anthem-protesting-national-team/

I was one of them.  I'm not a soccer fan, but I was going to at least watch a little here and there.  As soon as she protested during the anthem, then started spouting off, and made herself the centerpiece, I decided not to watch.

Her Trump and America hate is manufactured to get fame and fortune.  Trump has done nothing against the LGBT community, he just doesn't pander to them like Obama did, which was very condescending.

LGBT? I must be missing something. I admit, Rapinoe sent my gaydar soaring but I didn't see anything explicit about it in the clips that were shown, at least on PBS. From where I stand, more power to her if she is, and is out about it.

Sure there were political overtones - how could there not be? Everything is politicized these days. But it was also a big celebration of the fact that not just women, but AMERICAN women, who bested the rest of the world in a sport that's a much bigger thing everywhere else compared to here.

Seems to me this is a glass half empty, half full thing. I prefer to see the glass half full.

Having Rapinoe as essentially the centerpiece of the event made it LGBT.  She characterizes herself as an LGBT activist first and foremost.  Maybe do some research into her, and her antics. 

I am tired of the over promotion of both Women and LGBT by the Media, and Entertainment.  It has become very old, tedious and tiresome.

You may or may not have noticed that the celebration was turned into a huge political event by DeBlasio and Rapinoe.

Yes, it was not nationalistic pride it was a Female, LGBT, and an anti Trump rally.  Anything but patriotic.  Anything but "INCLUSIVE".  A propaganda parade for the LEFT ONLY. 

De Blasio (Warren Wilhelm) got a four for one.  They could consider this the Gay Pride (LGBT Pride) parade, Women's "rights" parade, and Democrat parade, as well as the soccer team parade.

I blame "Lawn Mower" parents or what is now being called snow blower, and snow plow parenting.  Clear ALL OBASTACLES from the child's path so they have NO adversity.  Sounds kind, right?  No.  They child does not learn how to COPE, overcome obstacles, deal with others and be creative.  It stifles thought. 

Then they get to college, can't deal with things, and cry "I'm depressed", or "I have anxiety".  Ridiculous.  Some resort to Pot to calm themselves, which has been normalized by society, and often legal.

The only reason I can think of for Corporate America to be siding with the socialists is that the radical left is louder and more militant and prone to boycotts than the right.  Either that, or they see themselves on the power  side of the socialist equation.  There is always one side of the socialist movement that is more equal than the other side.

It seems more, and more CEO's, and company leadership are Leftist, pushing leftist causes, and a PC corporate culture.  I've seen it in some of the large corps I've worked for.  Yes, I believe it is that they already are the powerful elite, that have theirs, and now want to block others and, consolidate power and wealth to themselves and their elite cronies.
