Door #1 is the result of copious irrigation, which turns a formerly lush place into Door #2.
Door #2 please. I am in New Mexico right now.
Have fun, Tom!
Door 1 has been designed by Trump's tiny hands and crayons while a teacher armed with an AR-15 guards the kindergarten brained child. All it now needs is heaps of tacky gold and lots of casinos, which Trump will run into the ground. To keep his tacky "empire" afloat he will need to launder dirty Russian money. You know, the self-styled business genius who took a gargantuan fortune his daddy left him and made it disappear through his financial acumen. For those who can't wait, that's a synopsis of Mueller's findings that'll see the downfall of the greatest president in history. Door 2 is perfect. Arizona and New Mexico are the perfect American states. Other than Delaware, of course.
Save the trolling for 4chan, Matt. Seriously, why does Mike tolerate this shit?
Jeff65, Matt's the only off the radar rightwing Republican here (he finds fascism too liberal). Everyone else here are either progress lefties or libertarian lefties. I suppose Mike's for freedom of speech, which is a decent attitude. In Matt's case he's all about pissing the rest of us off by disparaging MMT economists (the people he learned everything from) and being nasty to the poor, especially poor countries, and those are his better qualities. Admittedly, he is very astute on banking and monetary operations.

Jeff I forgot to mention here that this is going to become a periodic feature.... as I come across relevant images...Consider it a graphic example of how a material systems trained person views the world...

I quite like the idea of putting out different things here sometimes as long as it interesting. I've done this a few times recently and I think it has worked on the whole.The robin post I put out recently may have been a mistake, or perhaps I should have done it differently. But I can explain it better now.A women had lost her son but after four years was still grieving badly. One day she asked for a sign and at her son's graveyard a little robin landed on her hand, it also jumped on her shoulder and nibbled her a few times, she said. Who knows, maybe it was a sign, or it was just a cheeky robin who thought it could get some food, but this is an extremely rare event. We talk about war here a lot which can get depressing, and millions of mothers around the world have lost sons through wars. I saw how the post fitted in as a counterbalance to many of the posts we have been putting out here recently. The constant war and misery.Tom got it; and he, like me, has a spiritual side. I was in the Quakers for many years (I must go back one day), and I was interested in Jungian psychology and Buddhism. Tom and myself overlap a lot here. The next day when I looked at the post it did look a bit twee, I thought, especially on MNE's, so I think, perhaps, I should done it differently. Or maybe not put it out at all. I took a risk.
“and being nasty to the poor,”Yo I’m the one pointing out that we are in permanent surplus instead of MMT’s idiot “supply and demand!”Also, from your Darwin you should just be looking at the poor as the opposite of the fittest so they should properly be left behind via Darwin... it’s not “survival of the non-fittest!” is it?
@ JohnAlso known as "a useful idiot". By posting nonsense he gives others the opportunity to debunk his BS.
It was a good post imo Kaivey... there is more to life than material systems... if we would leave the material matters to those of us rigorously trained in those matters we would have better material outcomes.... we then could spend a lot more time on the non-material matters...
Thank you, Matt,Kevin
lastgreek, MR-15. That's hilarious. Perhaps the dumb Dems will find a way to to link it to Russia! The RR-15 perhaps?Matt, why do you keep bringing up Darwin? First of all the man was a genius. Second, he developed, alongside others, a theory that makes sense of all life. Lastly, and this may come as news to you but modern evolutionary thought has developed a great deal since Darwin. Your's is a standard straw man argument: dismiss the the whole argument because you can find some fault in one of the founders of the theory. It's like dismissing atomic theory because one of the founders didn't know everything about atoms, subatomic particles and the constituents of the subatomic particles! Or because he was a racist or any number of things. I suppose the heliocentric theory should be dismissed if it came to light that Copernicus claimed he was the Holy Ghost?
Matt, I think it is safe to say that the last thing you truly are is a material systems person. At no stage do you even take into consideration the material a poor country has to work with. You simply dismiss it as a shit hole.
