Iscadar makes some rather brash and controversial statements. Some FACTS:
Poland: 1939 population 34.8 million ~ total deaths 5.8 million ~ 16.7%
Pre-war Jewish population 9 million ~ total deaths 4.9 to 5.9 million ~ 50% - 60%
Polish Jews: 1939 3.2 million ~ deaths 2.7 to 3 million ~ 83%-92%
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties

Arabs in Europe: 2010 population 5 million many of whom came over under the Labour Export Agreement
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabs_in_Europe
The population of Europe is 742.5 million as of 2013 leaving Arabs a .6% of the total.

The illegal immigrant population of the United States in 2008 was estimated by the Center for Immigration Studies to be about 11 million people.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegal_immigration_to_the_United_States

Population of the USA is 313.9 million as of 2013 leaving illegals as 3.5% of the population.

Whereas Poland suffered more than any other individual country by percentage a large part of their suffering came due to the fact that around 50% of their total were Polish Jews. To claim that the Jews yell louder and were killed less because of a smaller chimney is unconscionable. He then includes a rant about Arabs in Europe. Unfortunately the facts bear out a bias rather than an economic truth. Lastly is the American fear of illegal immigration into the USA. Whereas a solution is needed the fact is that 3.5% of the population is an incredible small portion. It is the small biased thinking of individuals like the aforementioned player that causes far more fear and hatred in this World than is actual or necessary.

LITERARY HEROINES

FITTINGLY, THIS CHARACTER IS NAMED FOR A PLANT ALSO KNOWN AS ARROWHEAD THAT BELONGS TO THE GENUS SAGITTARIA

What is … ?

Wednesday, 23 July, 2014 :: 54

Whoever is planted in the Tao
will not be rooted up.
Whoever embraces the Tao
will not slip away.
Her name will be held in honor
from generation to generation.

Let the Tao be present in your life
and you will become genuine.
Let it be present in your family
and your family will flourish.
Let it be present in your country
and your country will be an example
to all countries in the world.
Let it be present in the universe
and the universe will sing.

How do I know this is true?
By looking inside myself.

"Marrakesh Express"

[Intro. (Electric Guitars)]

Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes
Traveling the train through clear Moroccan skies
Ducks and pigs and chickens call
Animal carpet wall to wall
American ladies five-foot tall in blue

Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind
Had to get away to see what we could find
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led
Listen not to what's been said to you

Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express
They're taking me to Marrakesh
All aboard the train, all aboard the train

I've been saving all my money just to take you there
I smell the garden in your hair

Take the train from Casablanca going south
Blowing smoke rings from the corners of my mouth
Colored cottons hang in the air
Charming cobras in the square
Striped djellebas we can wear at home Well, let me hear you now

Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express
They're taking me to Marrakesh

Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn't you know we're riding on the Marrakesh Express
They're taking me to Marrakesh
All on board the train, all on board the train
All on board

The current WA Resolution, Convention on Fracking has been posted on our off-site forums at:

http://www.runboard.com/bnationstates.f2.t83596

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION AT VOTE

Convention on Fracking

A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.

Category: Environmental

Industry Affected: Mining

Description: The World Assembly,

UNDERSTANDING that the necessity of fuel resources requires member-states to engage in the use of a variety of mechanisms in order to sustain the quantitative supply of fuel resources necessary to preserve national commerce and infrastructures,

ACKNOWLEDGING that certain controversial drilling techniques, including but not limited to the practice of hydraulic fracturing, have made the accessibility of petroleum reserves more readily available for nations seeking their own energy independence,

RECOGNIZING that the technique of hydraulic fracturing has been found through independent scientific studies to pose a significant risk to both the environment and those living in the proximal range of drill sites, including the contamination of groundwater tables with pollutants, increased air pollutants from released gasses, irreparable damage to the ecology of woodlands and wetlands affected by chemical runoff, the possibility of seismic activity including induced-tectonic shifts or earthquakes and the resultant risk to human life and materiel property,

CONCERNED as to the potential danger to harming the regional environment and local population centers situated around the proximal range of the employed use of hydraulic fracturing to procure previously inaccessible reserves of petroleum,

HEREBY:

1.) Defines the practice of hydraulic fracturing as any associated technique that utilizes the injection of a liquid compound that contains proppants, which fracture subterranean layers of rock for the purposes of allowing brine, natural gas, petroleum and other recoverable energy sources to seep into artificial boreholes or naturally-occurring reservoirs and wells without the closure of the fissures, for removal and eventual commercial usage;

2.) Requires member-states of the World Assembly to update any and all existing state regulations on the processes involved with hydraulic fracturing to meet the standards levied by the recommendation of the Council on Petroleum Extraction, or to establish regulations presently;

3.) Restricts the utilization of hydraulic fracturing techniques in the procurement of previously-inaccessible energy reserves to those areas that exist no less than fifty miles away from incorporated cities, towns, or communities;

4.) Commissions the creation of the World Assembly Council on Petroleum Extraction (CPE), which shall be vested with the following authority:

• To research the development of hydraulic fracturing techniques currently employed by national governments and private energy corporations, and to provide information on safe drilling techniques to prospective energy developers;

• To monitor and observe the utilization of hydraulic fracturing techniques by member-states of the World Assembly, and to report any potential violation of sponsored regulations or prohibitions supported herein to the World Assembly and its associated institutes;

• To provide for a consensus on the safety and feasibility of hydraulic fracturing as a method of acquiring previously-inaccessible energy reserves through independent scientific research and established safety principles;

5.) Requires that member-states of the World Assembly regulate organizations that utilize hydraulic fracturing techniques by requiring environmental cleanup of any chemical runoffs or groundwater contamination, and to monitor groundwater tables for possible contaminants under penalty of monetary fines or suspension of licensing to the offending corporations.

NOVEL WORDS

THIS WORD FOR A PERSON WITHOUT CERTAIN ABILITIES HAS MADE IT FROM THE REALM OF FANTASY TO THE OED

What is … ?

Thursday, 24 July, 2014 :: 55

He who is in harmony with the Tao
is like a newborn child.
Its bones are soft, its muscles are weak,
but its grip is powerful.
It doesn't know about the union
of male and female,
yet its penis can stand erect,
so intense is its vital power.
It can scream its head off all day,
yet it never becomes hoarse,
so complete is its harmony.

The Master's power is like this.
He lets all things come and go
effortlessly, without desire.
He never expects results;
thus he is never disappointed.
He is never disappointed;
thus his spirit never grows old.
