    [–] Megathread: President Trump announces increase in tariffs on China for billions of dollars of products, as Wall Street reacts to an intensifying trade war BoneHugsHominy 1 points ago in politics

    Perhaps you aren't aware, but the reason the USA is dotted with supermarkets, and why we have the strongest agriculture sector in the history of human civilization, is the result of central planning economics...to prove that central planning doesn't work.

    It's all about who is making the decisions.

    Rand is power, which is attractive, and there is the matter of being Ta'veren, so the Pattern is pushing them together. In Min's case, she knows the future and just submits to it rather than fighting it.

    As opposed to the USA, the honest people leave willingly to end being relentlessly bullied by Trump and his lackeys. Those honest people are then replaced with corporate henchmen with the express goal of tearing out all protections, root and stem.

    The end result is the same, a deeply corrupt government dead set on selling out the country for a luxury seat to end the of human civilization.

    It's actually far more effective than one might think. A 1000 megaton bomb burns off all the oxygen the trees are emitting, and combined with the thermosarcastic reaction with the ground, the fires are both starved of fuel and reverse the burn damage.

    I went to church one weekend with my cousin. Met a guy there that everyone loved by gave my cousin the creeps. He gave me the creeps too. A couple years later I saw him in the news. His name is Dennis Rader, aka the BTK killer.

    [–] Feds Subpoena Employees at Jail Where Jeffrey Epstein Killed Himself BoneHugsHominy 39 points ago in news

    Reminder: Trump's Attorney General, William Barr, was a key figure in the Iran-Contra Affair cover-up, as well as the Franklin cover-up (Boystown Child prostitution ring involving high level GOP officials; for more blood curdling information, check out the podcast Sword and Scale, episodes 5 & 6). Barr's father, Donald Barr, was an officer in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the predecessor of the CIA. Donald Barr went on to be headmaster of a prestigious private school, Dalton School. While at Dalton, Donald Barr hired Jeffrey Epstein as a teacher, even though Epstein was a college dropout and very much unqualified for the position. Now William Barr, as previously mentioned a cover-up specialist, is in charge of the Federal agency tasked with investigating the vast international child sex trafficking ring operated by Jeffrey Epstein, including his death and the many unnamed co-conspirators that had previously been granted an unprecedented immunity deal by Alex Acosta, Trump's former Labor Department head.

    First off, I've seen nowhere that anyone says Perrin should look like a world champion bodybuilder like Arnold.

    Secondly, historically blacksmiths had builds as varied as any other profession but they did all have very strong arms, shoulders, and backs. Before my spine injury, I was a metal fabricator and swung many a 5# sledge but not nearly close to how often a blacksmith uses a hammer, and within the first year my arms & shoulders got huge and defined. It's just the nature of demanding physical labor. The rest of any individual's build would be a combination of diet, genetics, and exercise or other hard labor.

    As for Perrin, if one pays close attention to the many details in the books, his arms, shoulders, and chest are described as very thick and heavily corded muscles. That's called being ripped.

    The Dark One can't make you a channeler though. Best he can do is merge your soul with another like Lord Luc Mantear (Rand's uncle) and Esam Mandragoran (Lan's cousin) to create another Slayer.

    I couldn't disagree more. My initial reaction just based on his publicity photo was that he has kind, thoughtful eyes, and that's Perrin in a nutshell. Then I watched an interview of him on YouTube and his voice & body language match his eyes. I have not seen any of his acting work so I don't really have an opinion on his talent as an actor, but apparently his audition of an emotional scene of Perrin's left everyone in the room in tears. Professional casting directors and filmmakers, in tears.

    That said, I do have reservations about his physique. He's a large man but not particularly muscular and ripped like a blacksmith, and with filming beginning soon I just don't see him bringing Perrin's physicality to the screen just yet. Perhaps he's been bulking up for awhile and all the photos and video of him just aren't up to date?

    OMG this is so shocking! Shocking I tells ya!

    Odd thing, that over and over again we see right wing Christians get busted for pedophilia and running child sex trafficking rings, but the right wingers always claim it's the liberals and gays that are raping & trafficking children in some grand global Satanic conspiracy. It's the No Puppet No Puppet You're The Puppet defense.
