"Experiments" are made easy when you already know your conclusion and look for ways to manipulate data to support that conclusion. The social sciences are really just social engineering. They're about manipulating the perception of reality to make people think that planned results came about randomly.

They are manipulating the variables to get their desired results.

It's not just Obama. Obama is just a stooge of Wall Street. The American ruling class has become hopelessly degenerate and is dragging the rest of the country into the gutter. Look at US foreign policy, which now officialy has taken on the cause of gay rights.

Could it be, for those who read The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ www.sacred-texts.com based on the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich you know that Caiphas gathered the enemies of Jesus and paid them to stand against Jesus and accuse him of doing and saying things and twisting his words around.

"They hastened to all the inns to seek out those persons whom they knew to be enemies of our Lord, and offered them bribes in order to secure their appearance... The enemies of Jesus hastened, however, to the tribunal of Caiphas, escorted by the Scribes and Pharisees of Jerusalem, and accompanied by many of those merchants whom our Lord drove out of the Temple when they were holding market there; also by the proud doctors whom he had silenced before all the people, and even by some who could not forgive the humiliation of being convicted of error when he disputed with them in the Temple at the age of twelve. There was likewise a large body of impenitent sinners whom he had refused to cure, relapsed sinners whose diseases had returned, worldly young men whom he would not receive as disciples, avaricious persons whom he had enraged by causing the money which they had been in hopes of possessing to be distributed in alms. Others there were whose friends he had cured, and who had thus been disappointed in their expectation of inheriting property; debauchees whose victims he had converted; and many despicable characters who made their fortunes by flattering and fostering the vices of the great.

All these emissaries of Satan were overflowing with rage against everything holy, and consequently with an indescribable hatred of the Holy of the Holies. They were farther incited by the enemies of our Lord, and therefore assembled in crowds round the palace of Caiphas, to bring forward all their false accusations and to endeavour to cover with infamy that spotless Lamb, who took upon himself the sins of the world, and accepted the burden in order to reconcile man with God."


Could it be, that the Obama administration is doing the same thing in some way but in the affects of praising Obama to make him look good and loved by all?

If people don't believe inflation is kicking in here is a tidbit to chew on.

I have a friend who owns and runs a small restaurant.Today she was aksed to pay some $30 for a half case of cabbage. It has not been that long, just a couple of weeks, that she paid about half that for a full case.

At this point I'll interject a little levity here, she is a Coptic Orthodox from Egypt and owns and operates a teriyaki restaurant.

Are you sure we will not have two living Popes, even though one will not be in power? He will be called Pope emeritus.

Your Coptic Orthodox friend, from Egypt, who owns the teriyaki restaurant, has taken a lot of different paths. That is
what is good about America.

I DO think that is happening with Obama. God knows he does not deserve any praise.

My new thread today shows how Obama approved the Budget Act of 2011 which contained the Sequestration trigger. Yes,
it was his idea, and I hope he is the one to get blamed, not the Republicans. He is so dramatic. And his hissy fits are
getting old.

I got into a debate with an arrogant attorney about same-sex marriage who kept telling me I was "ignorant" when I told him I had issues with the American Psychiatric Association's definitions about homosexuality for various reasons related to scientific methodology. Not to mention the groupthink that has befallen Catholic and other devout researchers who criticize their studies.

It dawned on me that in the absence of God then nothing is true and nothing is false. Formal logic says that the appeal to authority is a logical fallacy and that saying the scientific method can be proven because of the scientific method is circular reasoning.

In the end scientism as much of a religion as Christianity, especially because both rely on faith.

I think you may be getting a little out of the ballpark by saying that nothing is true and nothing is false. If you set up
your theory, you can either prove it or disprove it, by using the scientific method, only if that method applies to
proving your theory.

Could you explain a little about the American Psychiatric Association's definition about homosexuality? Apparently,
some time ago Homosexuality was considered a defect. Not sure what they are saying now.

Just heard today that thousands of illegal immigrants were being released onto the streets because we can't afford to keep them....though you'd really appreciate that one knowing how you feel about this issue.

The stock market is a joke. If I had enough money, I'd be shorting big time. It's just another asset bubble designed to create a wealth effect. The US economy is a disaster after several decades of offshoring and the decimation of its manufacturing base. All we have left are debt bubbles to create fake wealth. The show's going to end one of these days. We're screwed.

You don't need a lot of money to short, or buy put or call options. I hope you make a lot of money. It takes a lot of
time though. You have the smarts for it.

Did I miss something? Our foreign policy is dictating gay rights to other countries? That is something new, and
unbelievable. Oh well. With Obama at the helm, anything can happen.

They mentioned it yesterday about releasing the illegals. Janet Napolitano said she knew nothing about it. I wonder then
who gave the order to do it, since she is head of Homeland Security?
