oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh................... I very much doubt it!!Foes of Ross Tech?????
Friend of Ross-Tech. We consider Jason a friend despite his politics.
at least it's an open forum where the "boss" don't get mad and shoots if "users" don't agree with his views.
Jason: As I hope you will already know, we happen to share similar positions on many sociopolitical matters - so I consider us to be a kindred spirit and I've often enjoyed your support of ideas in lots of enlightened debates in this place.So... from time to time when he posts something that makes me want to respond with a video involving VCDS interfaces and a gallon of 93 octane, I try to step back take a breather, because I simply don't believe it reflects his character. And when he posts the medical or political equivalent of "this antifreeze tastes delicious" a a friend who would just walk away is no friend at all. I try to be as positive as I can, but sometimes when I'm being told I also have to drink the antifreeze, at gunpoint if necessary, it's hard.
She said.... you do like to pick on anyone but your mate Vlad the Invader ....will a native english speaker make sense of this please , i have been turning it in every and which way and i still don't understand nothing
" KAMALA HARRIS: "For Jamaica, one of the issues that has been presented as an issue that is economic in the way its impact has been the pandemic.......we will assist Jamaica in Covid recovery by assisting in terms of the recovery efforts in Jamaica that have been essential."
What she said ,please ?
If you make statements, please back them up with references and clarify why you feel they are "akin". Just saying something, doesn't make it a fact or even proof a point.it'a akin to Blackwater group but maybe not as advertised
So this kind of thing is only a problem if it's a neighboring country? Or is it only a problem when Russia does it?how that view can be achieved by shelling the cities and murdering the citizens of a peaceful neighbouring country.
I did respond to you in post number 204 . I get it, you don't agree with me but that's ok...If you make statements, please back them up with references and clarify why you feel they are "akin". Just saying something, doesn't make it a fact or even proof a point.
BTW: If you keep ignoring people who question your statements by making valid arguments and asking for proof/references, you're just clarifying that you are the troll in the conversation and not genuinely interested in an open discussion. Specifically, see my points here... and here...
No , truly , i do like to read/watch international news from whatever source i can, be it pro ar anti west or pro or anti russian. However , that piece of speech made absolutely no sense to me and what with English being my second language i really didn't make any sense of what she said and maybe i thought i'd get "illuminated" by native english speakers.. I was expecting her to be articulate and intelligent being that she was the California top cop and also the daughter of two professors and graduated from Howard University and the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.She said.... you do like to pick on anyone but your mate Vlad the Invader ....
I am still waiting for even a single mild critique from JMR of Vlads view of the world and how that view can be achieved by shelling the cities and murdering the citizens of a peaceful neighbouring country.
I'm not saying it was right. I'm saying what I did very early on in this thread, that we (the collective "West") have no moral high ground to stand on. It's disingenuous to act all morally outraged when someone else does exactly the same thing we've done ourselves on numerous occasions in the recent past.You also do not make something right like an invasion of Ukraine by quoting other wrongs
Uwe: Although I agree that the act for going to war always needs justification - I'm not sure that morality (be it either on high, or low ground) is at all relevant! I'm reminded of the adage about the first causality of war - and yes, the "collective "West"" is indeed as complicit in the flow of disinformation as are the media releases from the two combatants in Ukraine.I'm not saying it was right.

I don't know how you came to the conclusion that I am clearly read person and a thinker based on my ability to repair cars and giving few good answers here and there on this forum. I would though take that as a compliment if that's what was intended and I thank you sir !However I just find it strange for someone who is clearly widely read and a thinker ( judging from your car repair posts) that you believe the whole of the Western world is stupid or corrupt or bad in multiple ways but Putin does not seem to warrant even the slightest rebuke and everything he does is an understandable response to injustices imposed on mother Russia.
Though the question is simple , the answer is not. It is not appropiate to say yes or no to this question !I will ask a simple question for which a yes or no answer is appropriate
