But more importantly you just stated that this man was in fact receiving money from the federal government! I thought that fracking was developed 100 within the industry. Interesting pivot. You dont have any argument because the examples you provided clearly fell apart under scrutiny. So yes, you are in fact done.



    Yes Mark, this is my last post. I like how you demand proof, yet have never provided any of your own. You are literally getting angry with me because I am able to use google to fact check your bullshit claims. BTW, Medicare, which may be government funded, is not government funded research. You have a bad habit of conflating issues to dance around topics instead of addressing them.



    Why are you asking me? What post of mine has ever addressed this?
    Your initial claims about free market vs. government owned monopoly have not been proven to be true. Again, what are you suggesting? That major scientific and technological discoveries would not be possible without government funding only because some of them happened to be government funded at some stage or another?
    This leads me to think you believe we would still be in prehistoric conditions without a centralized form of power, which is worrying.
    We all know you came here to argue with Rip and suck your own dick for a while, but I think you deviated from my original comment which sparked your response.
    Did you celebrate the government's power when they told you the covid vax was free? After all, that's what government is all about, lowering prices for fundamental goods and services, no?
    No market forces needed in that event. God knows what would've happened in a free market.

    Coach, please don't ban him. It's interesting see how some people think. It's like rubbernecking a wreck.

    People have survived and thrived here for many years, even before any electricity or central heating or indoor plumbing ever existed.

    We the People are perfectly capable of managing our own lives without big government's "help." Unfortunately, I think we are in the cyclical phase of "good times create weak men."

    Why are you talking about climate change within the context of the discussion? Also you are welcome to go live in the woods without and electricity and plumbing, but yet you chose to type this post on a device that requires technology and electricity to work and the internet (which was also originally a government funded project) to read and reply to others posts.

    Yes, your Google machine is broken, but only the Slavs can get us out of this mess, as usual: Try Yandex.
    Not that it matters or that I care, but you are still wrong. The idea to use electricity to create light was in development over 200 years ago. Laurey's patent was filed in 1972 which was proceeded by Edison's patent was filed in 1879. They used different filaments, although both individuals ae created as inventors of the lightbulb. The first person to have created a lightbulb was British Chemist Warren De La Rue in 1840. But who cares? None of this actually pertains to the discussion.

    Spiking EggNog, I would say that we wouldn't have had the computer revolution without Bell Labs, which was /heavily/ government subsidized (right?). Not saying that's the norm, because we as a people lost enthusiasm for that kind and level of investment (Apollo comes to mind as well). It is odd that the shift to "lifestyle" thinking (post JFK assasination) sort of overlaps with the tapering off of the Bell Labs and Space Heyday. Maybe that quality of effort was replaced with Medicard/welfare type funding movements.

    Correct as needed; I'm no historian.

    I've got to. A couple slid by, but he still hasn't described the crucial role played by the government in George Mitchell's fracking technology. So he's done.

    Thanks! Yes itís interesting but itís also upsetting. If and when the time comes for you, you have to pick your treatment path and probably stick with it. Chasing fads wonít work.

    It will take a lot more than Dr Seyfriedís KETO fetish to get me to endorse starvation techniques to fight an otherwise certainly fatal disease. Confidence is strong medicine too!

    God bless Uncle Ted. In case anyone hasn't read Industrial Society, this is a prime example of the people Dr. K Kasynski was talking about.

    You're right. I apologize for my insensitivity.

    The transcript of this video was also included on the final report of the select committee.



    This occurred after he broke into the Capitol as part of a violent mob. There is video of him when he actually entered the Capitol showing people breaking the windows.

    No, he didn't through a broken window and it is unclear how that door was opened. I will even give him credit that it looks like he redirected a man from grabbing candy or whatever was over to the side. But he did enter with this violent mob, used a megaphone to rile them up (this occurred prior to the Musk video), and disrupted a congressional hearing. All charges that have been captured on video and he plead guilty to.

    This was far from the tourist visit Tucker Carlson (a man who has flat out admitted to lying on air and whose personal texts in court are contradictory to what he says on air (i.e. he lies to you for ratings) is convincing people it was.

    At first, I thought CommanderFun's comment about these posts possibly coming from Eglin Airforce Base was a well-deserved swipe at this guy for being an NPC.
    Now, I am thinking it is a real possibility; I have seen postings like his plastered, almost verbatim, at multiple other places on the internet after the Tucker Carson J6 coverage.

    I wonder why this mainstream news organization decided to take down this article.
