Well..... within reason. Nothing in language is static, which is why dialects differ. English spelling/pronunciation is notorious - I don't know how any foreigner learns it. I recall taking SWMBO to Bath on the train - we passed through Slough and Reading and I couldn't help asking her...

Then of course there's GHOTI for fish, though like many others I was always told it was a Shavian construct..... it now seems to be much older (Charles Ollier,1855)

Google the two names and you see your man praising your other man.
It's called research. You might try it rather than just spreading stuff about unquestioningly.

He posts videos with the Infowars logo on them. He has no problems promoting Alex Jones. Though he knows that person will discredit the arguments.

That's quite a voice. And what some people don't understand is that what he is expressing is real.

Default Re: George Floyd

It could have been any black man or woman, in this case it was George Floyd.
In the US, this white-black divide is stark because of the history of slavery of black to white that didn't end in 1865.
Even when slavery was abolished, the remnants of the slave culture remained for a number of reasons, among these being a perceived moral domination of white over black, a financial divide between the two that ensured blacks would always be poor, a wish to retain the cheap labour, etc etc... but most of all it's a gut wrenching fear.
The recent cry from MLB to "take the knee off our necks" is a reflection of reality and it's been the fear of removing the white knee from the black neck and the inevitable surge in anti-white hatred for all those years when the 'knee' meant bending the black knee to the white 'massa' that fuels this fear, a fear that probably lacks reason.
It's like having mistreated the dog. Better keep him chained up because if he ever gets free those teeth of his are really sharp. So the whites have kept the blacks in chains.
White supremacy might mean just that to some, but it's really the fear of what a black backlash could mean to the average white that really feeds that fear.
Whites, even those who bear no ill will towards blacks, know the emnity that's been building up, they know the subjugation that the black has suffered through the years, they did very little to make black lives better and they've watched while a white dominated justice system has systematically targetted the black community and they did this because it feared the day when a George Floyd would die and now they're terrified of the consequences of actions by few and inaction by many.
It could have been any black, but it was George Floyd and those others, who never quite made the national news or impacted the national consciousness are being remembered, and they're stoking the fires.
The police are reacting to the charges against one of their own by withdrawing their labour and it's to be expected that the levels of fear will rise still more, gun sales will increase, there will be other senseless killings as a result.
It's a mess that needed to happen, should have been long ago but better now than later.

Ah, Wikipedia. You might as well be reading the Guardian for all the difference it makes!

Wikipedia Is Badly Biased: https://larrysanger.org/2020/05/wiki...-badly-biased/

Wikipedia co-founder says the site is “badly biased”“The NPOV is dead”…. Long live the NPOV. That of course is the “Neutral Point of View” a belief among Wikipedia editors that they are rationally and dispassionately editorializing content and moderating edits in a neutral, unbiased manner. Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has been writing about the loss of objectivity on the system for some time now.

I recently found this YouTube channel, Mr Obvious. Only watched a few videos so far but It contains some very interesting articles. For example, this one:

And below are the archived red pill comments referred to in the video. Mr Obvious and N95_HOARDER are absolutely correct, the crime statistics tell a very different story to the one that most of the mainstream information channels are feeding us. The key question that must surely follow the revealing of these truths is: Why are the mainstream information channels mis-informing us??

Has anyone looked at what the stats are telling us here: https://archive.vn/tPtri ?

The "autocorrect" on my phone seems to like both, and will randomly choose one or the other, depending on what incorrect characters I've inadvertently typed in the process.

Wiki references it's sources. It repeats what has been investigated and covered elsewhere.

Ah yes, former members of an association that they have fallen out with are always blessed with an unbiased opinion on that association aren't they.

Did you see the part where he criticises Wiki for being anti-elitist? Given you, too, are anti-elitist I thought that quite funny.
