Russian biological material and theft thereof

November 8, 2017 Snoopy 0

For nitpickers: biological material in this case relates to human tissues, blood, urine and stool samples and any other material produced by a living organism. When a conspiracy nutcase comes up with a new idea, it is usually both sad and funny. When a head of state does it, it [Read More]

Monsanto and another example of dirty science

October 31, 2017 Snoopy 0

I am not a fan of Monsanto or of any other chemical/biological giant. These corporations do not exist solely for the good of humanity. Profit is their other motivator as well, and thanks for the motivators, I guess. The story, however, happens to be in favor of the above mentioned [Read More]

Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion, too I guess I don’t have to comment or interpret these words, everyone and his cat know where it comes from. Let’s all pray for the New World Order where nations, prejudices, [Read More]

GMO, the neo-Luddites and their apples

October 15, 2017 Snoopy 0

The above diagram (click to enlarge) includes a lot of known pseudo-sciences, superstitions, conspiracy theories etc. It mentions one of the most dangerous: the anti-vaxxers, the people who one of these days could be the undoing of us all, among many others. One addictive religious cult is missing from the [Read More]

On cognitive privilege and other animals

September 23, 2017 Snoopy 0

Don’t even try to look for the definition of cognitive privilege in the dictionaries, it is too new. There is a definition of cognitive elite, though, that brings us close to the subject. The cognitive elite of a society, according to Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray, are those having [Read More]

September 3, 2017 Snoopy 0

“We never had, don’t have and will never have nuclear weapons. This doesn’t mean that if someone decided to use such weapons against us, we wouldn’t use them first.” Reportedly by Moshe Dayan*. The above is an elegant (in an uncouth military way) prelude to the subject raised twice in [Read More]

Iran

Putin and Netanyahu or journeys of a bibliophile

August 27, 2017 Snoopy 1

Netanyahu’s trip to Sochi to meet Putin and to persuade him that Iranian corridor to Mediterranean is not a good idea, doesn’t seem to be a great success story. The Russian version of that same article in Pravda is titled: “Netanyahu’s Fiasco in Sochi…“. For the English version the Pravda’s [Read More]

Spanish civil war and human “Anti-Zionist” garbage

July 2, 2017 Snoopy 2

There is nothing new in the notion that for a raving anti-Semite in the usual anti-Zionist guise nothing is sacred. As nothing is new in the notion that the British Labour party has lately become a welcoming safe harbor for this thriving mob of progressive thinkers. For full disclosure: my [Read More]

Trump and how to beat him, according to the Guardian

June 21, 2017 Snoopy 3

Not being a supporter of Trump and not being an expert in the internal US politics, I simply enjoy (kind of) the current political game in Washington. Which is mainly a hodge-podge of frenzied attacks on the POTUS, coming from all directions: from his alleged complicity in a bevy of [Read More]

June 19, 2017 Snoopy 0

The dramatic developments (and sometimes lack of thereof) in the unending drama of the Russian involvement in the last US elections are certain to leave an external observer confused. As an avid reader of spy stories and a longtime watcher of the Kremlin shenanigans, I personally would like nothing more [Read More]
