[alfonse] When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frédéric Bastiat
[Vigilance] alfonse is that from "The Law" - sounds familiar
[alfonse] Vigilance Yes
[alfonse] That was written over 150 years ago
[Jester] HI ALL
[tallpines] Jester, Hello thanks for what you and your team of mods have done and taught us.. an off topic question, not sure if you have the answer but do you feel/know if Grunts project funding for businesses are still in play
[Jester] tallpines I DO NOT... HOWEVER YOU HAVE SEEN ZAP'S POSTS I SUPPOSE HAVEN'T YOU?
[tallpines] Jester I’ve read his stuff but not sure if it is the same as what Grunt was doing
[Jester] tallpines PRETTY MUCH... STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE...
[LdyFaith] Jester,,, did you see Markz's post in recaps about Cottrell ?,,, was interesting
(Dinar Recaps Note: here is the link to the MarkZ and Michael C. Cottrell post)
[Jester] LdyFaith YEAH WELL WE HAVE KNOW FOR SOME TIME ABOUT COTRELL AND HODGES... WE JUST HAVE NOT BEEN COMFORTABLE TO TALK ABOUT IT FOR SAFETY REASONS... NO SENSE MAKING IT WORSE FOR THEM IN ANY WAY....
[Jester] NOW THAT THEY ARE COMING OUT IN THE OPEN I SUPPOSE WE CAN SAY WHATEVER WE LIKE... HAHAHAHAHAH
[LdyFaith] Jester,,, seems so,,,,,even names I suppose
[Jester] YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND ALL THE BACKGROUND WITH WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM AND WHO DID IT... CMKM AND A LOT OF OTHER THINGS... IT HAS NOT BEEN MAINSTREAM ENOUGH TO TALK ABOUT THE DETAILS OF IT BEFORE NOW... AND THE THREAT OF BARING IT ALL APPARENTLY IS SOMETHING THEY WILL NOW LIKE TO DO... SO IT IS WHAT IT IS IN THAT REGARD...
[Jester] LdyFaith I SUPPOSE THEY DO NOT WORRY THAT NOW IS TIME FOR THE NAMES TO COME OUT I SUPPOSE... UNFORTUNATELY IT WILL TAKE A LOT OF OTHER EXPLANATION FOR EVERYONE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS JUST DONE...
[LdyFaith] Jester,,, seems the fact that they are coming out in the open, , means things have progressed to the point it is safe to do that ?
[Jester] LdyFaith I PROBABLY WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT IF IT WAS ME... THERE IS A LOT OF CHANCE IN WHAT THEY ARE DOING... A LITTLE SCARY I WOULD SAY... BUT I KNOW THEY ARE TIRED OF THE DELAYS AND NOW IT IS APPARENTLY MORE IMPORTANT TO CALL THE BLUFF OF SPILLING ALL...
[LdyFaith] Jester,,, those that dont understand by now,,,, have been in the wrong room
[Jester] LdyFaith TRUST ME... YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT JUST HAPPENED.... THIS INFORMATION HAS NOT BEEN OUT IN THIS WAY BEFORE...
[Jester] YOU WOULD HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT COTTRELL AND HODGES AND OTHERS THAT I WILL NOT NAME ARE TO DO IN THIS SCENARIO...
[sandyc] Jester what can the rest of us do besides being prepared as best we can to show our support and try to help
[Jester] I REALLY CAN'T BELIEVE THEY JUST DID THAT TO TELL THE TRUTH... HAHAHAHAH
[LdyFaith] Jester,,, you have let us know how desperately convoluted everything is within our gov,,, without details we should not have,,, pray all are safe
[Jester] Pilgrim WELL... SORT OF... YOU STILL DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE REALLY TALKING ABOUT... HAHAHAHHAHA
[Pilgrim] hahahaha no, I prob. do not but I do realize it is BIG and will evolve
[Jester] THAT WHOLE THING IS A THREAT TO TELL YOU ALL OF IT APPARENTLY... GLOVES OFF AS HE SAID...
[LdyFaith] Jester,,,scarry stuff
[GodsGurl] Jester when you talked to Mark Z the other day did he mention he was planning to post this?
[Jester] GodsGurl WE TALKED ABOUT THE WHOLE THING... BUT I THINK COTTRELL PROBABLY PULLED THE PIN SINCE I TALKED TO MARKZ...
[Pilgrim] Jester are you amazed by this too?
[GodsGurl] Jester I couldn't believe I was reading it
[Jester] GodsGurl WELL... MOST OF THE REST OF THE STORY IS WHAT YOU WILL REALLY BE INTERESTED IN... THAT IS THE PAST DEEDS... STILL LEFT IS WHAT IS COMING...
[GodsGurl] Jester can you tell us any of the rest of the story?
[Jester] GodsGurl GodsGurl I COULD.... THEIR INVOLVEMENT IS FOR PART OF THE DOLLAR REFUNDING PROJECT... BUT IT IS NOT MY STORY AND WOULD BE MUCH BETTER TOLD BY THEM...THEN THEY CAN TELL WHAT THEY LIKE TO... BUT THAT IS WHAT IS AT STAKE AND WHAT THEY ARE PRETTY MUCH TALKING ABOUT... EVEN THOUGH SOME THINGS HAVE CHANGES OVER TIME ABOUT WHAT THE RESPONSIBILITIES ARE NOW... THEY ARE STILL VERY IMPORTANT IN THE PROCESS...
[GodsGurl] Jester fascinating. I feel like we are watching history in the making
[Jester] SO IT IS PROBABLY PRUDENT FOR ME TO LET THEM TELL IT THE WAY THEY WILL LIKE TO...
[Jester] PLUS THEY SAID WHAT THEY LIKED TO... SO I RESPECT THE PART THAT THEY TOLD WHAT THEY COULD... AND WILL LEAVE IT AT THAT FOR NOW...
[tpw] Jester does it have anything to do with sony
[Jester] tpw NAH... THAT IS SUPERFLUOUS BS THAT IS JUST SILLY POSTURING BY ALL...
[Jester] tpw EVEN O SAYS IT WAS A MISTAKE TO PULL THE MOVIE... BUT NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT THAT MAYBE IT WAS A GOOD THING TO DO SINCE HE IS AGAINST IT... MAYBE IT FOILED A PLAN OF HIS.... HAHAHHAHAHA
[LdyFaith] Jester, probably more truth in that statement than not
[pokerbrat] JESTER IT may have foiled his plan of a nuke war with North Korea.
[Jester] LOOKS LIKE THE O'S WERE TRYING TO BLAME IT ON N KOREA AND THEY SAY IT WASN'T THEM... DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR? LIKE THE UKRAINE THINGIE?
[LuckyB] yeah does
[Jester] SO WHO DID IT I WONDER? THINK OUR OWN DING DONGS MIGHT HAVE BEEN MAKING A CASE FOR SOME MORE SANCTIONS TO GET SOME MORE HEAT GOING IN THE WORLD?
[Jester] WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME IN THE LEAST... THEY ARE DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR A WAR TO START SOMEWHERE....
[Jester] On Saturday, North Korea described the American claims that it was behind the attacks as slander, and warned the United States not to reject its offer of a joint investigation, the statement carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency said, according to The Associated Press.
[Betsy Ross] Jester sounds about right. Was my original thought when I first heard of the Sony hacking
[tpw] Jester yesterday morning there was retired FBI man on fox news who said there was only 1 connection to NK out of 1000's then he never came on again I thought that funny
[Jester] OK.... NEED A LITTLE BREAK... THAT WILL LET THE MODS CATCH UP FOR THE LATE COMERS... AND I CAN GO LET MY FISH GO... HAHAHHAHAH
