If you watch the full coverage of the events, it was lefties who went after the KKK and skinheads first. That's not exactly a good thing to do. Sort of like picking a fight with the Hell's Angels.

The terrorist in the car attack turns out to have been a Nazi sympathizer even in his high school days. He's from the Cincinnati area, growing up on the Kentucky side of the river. He enlisted in the Army two years ago, but he couldn't even make it through basic training and got discharged. I suspect it was for his attitude, not for physical reasons. He was just looking for an excuse to kill someone.

While it was promoted as an event to protect historical confederate statues, there were some pretty fucking vile people behind the march and they ARE the real deal, genuine racists that are seeking a society arranged along racial lines -- these are  people that need to be identified and called out for who they are.  There's a lot of disillusioned kids out there on internet forums that have been duped into thinking these were simply people against identity politics -- they were not -- they were actually promoting some of the most evil identity politics.

That said antifa are not simply good folks standing up against racism and facism -- that is a lie.  They also have an agenda -- they advocate violence against those who oppose them politically (not just racists) and seek to silence any sort of dissent towards their agenda -- which is also pure identity politics and something I would call equality of outcome over equality of opportunity.  I've heard virulent fucking anti-semitism coming from both sides, which sparked me to instantly leave the democrats.  But seeing so many swept up behind an idiot like Trump backed by Bannon who has downplayed what the alt right really is... just depressing.  Both sides have driven people in the middle towards one side or the other.  Literally worst climate I've seen in the US in my lifetime, though I don't think we're anywhere near a civil war.

We need more skepticism and for people to really scrutinize what's coming out in media from either side -- in that aspect, some sort of sophistication on how shitty people can be, the Europeans are way ahead of us.

So on Tuesday I thought I'd test this hypothesis and I had a Stroke.

Ambulance - than at hospital, a probe up my Femoral Artery and they removed the clot from my brain.

I am pleased to say, that I have full function restored, so I am good as new, but there's a spot in my brain that will forever be dead to me. I am 57

Doctors are all very pleased, as am I.

If I'd been in Laos or Thailand, I reckon I'd be very much worse off.

So next time I'm going to Laos or LOS I've resolved to get a health insurance policy., As the last thing I want, is to suffer an event whilst playing with a lady.

Whoa = What do you say to that?  I'm guessing you got some PMs as this is a potent post.  Genuinely sorry to hear about the stroke.  It's good that you came through unscathed considering what 'could have been.'

I don't like most of the TED talks but... there are a few I REALLY like.  This is one.  Give it a look.

Yep - there's the rub and there is no answer.  Those that work until they've built up quite the security blanket only to find their lives mostly spent may regret it.  On the other hand those that take the leap, fuck the consequences, and find themselves down, out and broke in their 30s, 40s, 50s, + - will regret this also.

What's the solution?  You figure that out.... and yeah.

Yeah, here's the resolution -- cancel the thai360 meaningless self indulgent circle jerk and send some fucking people with an IQ greater than Angela Merkel's *** term in office.  Or Trump's hand size.  Take your pick on which is the most asinine.
