what are the charicteristics of a dragon.
i need to know and will be asking more questins involving dragons
Go and look at some pictures on google images and you will find that there are many, many interpretations of dragon. The standard ‘dragon’ either has 2 legs and 2 wings (harry potter, game of thrones etc.) or has 4 legs and 2 wings (how to train your dragon). Some dragons such as Chinese dragons may not have legs and be like snakes or worms with up to 3 sets of wings along the body (although some have none at all).Most dragons tend to have reptilian features such as scales although wings are usually leathery like bats and in the case of 2 legged dragons the wings usually have claws at the end (almost exactly like a bat).Some dragons breath fire, some don’t. Their size ranges immensely, dragons usually hatch from eggs so start off very small but, depending on the book / film, can be large enough for multiple people to ride.Sometimes they are tameable, sometimes they are wild. They only really speak in cartoons such as ‘how to train your dragon’.
Why were people in Germany 1933 with giving up freedom of protest and arrests of political dissenters.
Like how could this way of life go into style? Without people saying “no no no no this is not how we settle disputes in Germany…I grew up in this country and this is not how we do things”
One of the first things the Nazis did when they came to power was to get rid of their political opposition.They imprisoned or murdered all independent trade union leaders. They blamed the burning of the Reichstag on the Communists and imprisoned or murdered as many as they could find, driving many Communists into exile.When Hitler introduced his Enabling Act which gave him dictatorial powers there was only one left-wing party left to oppose him in the Reichstag. The SPD was the only party that voted against him. All the right-wing parties voted for Hitler’s Enabling Act. The SPD leaders were then imprisoned, murdered or driven into exile.After that it was easy to control the population through the elimination of all opposing entities, the burning of books, the firing of leftist teachers and university professor, paramilitary intimidation, and of course the aforementioned elimination of unions, so that there were no more labor strikes in Germany.

I JUST realized that a “left wing liberal” is in office. Is it the end of the world.
Is every “left wing liberal” (or someone pretending to be such but is not) going to be accompanied by extreme opposition, including marking said person as something horrible, or that the end of the U.S. as we know it is nigh?It seems it has been that way since Bill Clinton.
Actually, the Weimar republic can be argued to have been about as “democratic” as a capitalist society can be.It’s how it ENDED that’s the question.If you want to compare the political situation in the U.S. today with that in Weimar, an honest appraisal would show we’re missing many crucial ingredients.No mass communist party (sorry, dittoheads! You’re wrong. It ain’t the Democrats).No mass centrist “socialist” party (ditto!).No mass fascist party (sorry, MoveON. You’re wrong! It ain’t the Republicans).The U.S. is falling from number ONE status world-wide, not falling from number four to number fifteen like Germany was.Unlike Germany, which had few colonies, the U.S. has plenty of other countries where Washington’s word is law.No mass union movement – less than 11% of U.S. workers are in unions.And the most IMPORTANT ingredient that characterized Weimar is missing – there has not been a recent communist uprising that almost took power and failed, and left angry leftists and bitter rightists.IF a comparison CAN be made, which is questionable, more than anything the situation most resembles Britain in the 1950s – a recent fall from number one status, the loss of worldwide dominance, a denial of that reality, and an inability to deal with the consequences.But the video of history never repeats exactly, even when there ARE similarities. Neither falling Britain nor Hitler’s Germany had nukes.Yes, this IS a time of crisis. But running around screaming “the sky is falling” didn’t help Chicken Little.And it won’t help us today..
Possessions and Incorporations, how many differences are made of spirits forms to tangible with us in reality.
Obviously, we are all embodied spirits, if not a disembodied spirit is incarnate.The overlapping dimensions is not framed in their logic, a fact that confirms the understanding of the dynamics of the spiritual world, in fact the multiplicity of dimensions allows there are many mansions in God’s house, the…
http://www.democraticunderground.com/101643344So when times are tough why do we look for an association which conotates a negative mental and emotional drive?Is there something in our past?Something in our genes or spirituality?The link can be drawn further down.First, let’s examine what Nicolaitane means.Nicolaitane means “a follower of Nicolas.” It originates from the Greek words, nikos meaning “conquerer” or “destroyer,” and laos, meaning “people.” The original Nicolas—Nimrod (Gen. 10:8)—was a destroyer of the people. Nicolas is merely the Greek word for Nimrod. Within two centuries after the Flood, Nimrod had conquered the people and founded man-made civilization.While alive, Nimrod commanded his subjects to worship him in place of God. Even after his death, his followers continued to worship him as a divine heroic leader. He was called “Baal.” This name means “master” and “lord,” and is found many times in the Old Testament. This name describes the positions that Nimrod took to himself—to be considered Lord and Master of creation.The church of Pergamos was founded by Nicolaitanes – Nicolaitanism), and was a Christian heresy first mentioned (twice) in the Book of Revelation of the New Testament.The church of Pergamos is blamed for having them who hold their “doctrines” (Rev 2:15).They were seemingly a class of professing Christians, who sought to introduce into the church a false freedom or licentiousness, thus abusing Paul’s doctrine of grace (Compare Pe2 2:15, Pe2 2:16, Pe2 2:19), and were probably identical with those who held the doctrine of Baalam (q.v.), Rev 2:14.The Church of Pergamos was from 313–A.D. — 606. This spans the time from Constantine’s Edict of Toleration for Christians to what is considered the first actual true pope and the beginnings of the Catholic Church.This is the root system building up to the Catholic Church.Because of the heresy/doctrine/lies which entered the Catholic church, it’s subjects suffered mental and sexual health problems in later life, they were also highly educated and used to prop up an empire. (Satanic Empire)Royal Air Force Nimrod XV230 A war plane and destoyer of humans.Santa Claus (A heresy of the real St Nicholas) Dutch “Sinterklaas” (or more formally Sint Nicolaas or Sint Nikolaas; Saint Nicolas in French; Sankt Nikolaus in German), and was a tall figure riding a white horse through the air and usually accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. Also the origin of the reindeer, sleigh and the elves.Now kids engage emotionally and find solace in materiel things wrapped in glitter.Golden Dawn (Greece)Is a right-wing extremist political organization in Greece. It is led by Nikolaos Michaloliakos and has grown considerably since its inception to a widely known Greek political party with nationwide support. http://www.democraticunderground.com/101643344Linked with Kristallnacht, On the night of November 9, 1938, violence against Jews broke out across the Reich. It appeared to be unplanned, set off by Germans’ anger over the assassination of a German official in Paris at the hands of a Jewish teenager. In fact, German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and other Nazis carefully organized the pogroms. In two days, over 250 synagogues were burned, over 7,000 Jewish businesses were trashed and looted, dozens of Jewish people were killed, and Jewish cemeteries, hospitals, schools, and homes were looted while police and fire brigades stood by. The pogroms became known as Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass,” for the shattered glass from the store windows that littered the streets.http://www.ushmm.org/outreach/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007697Lies creep in all the time and cause this destruction in the name of an Old Testament nephilim giant.Poor child, who burdened him with this?Those kids were left depraved.
How many indictments came out of the never ending Benghazi investigations.
If you read the telltale book of right-wing hidden-agenda “villains” in Jane Mayer (2017), ‘DARK MONEY: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right” that began with spoiled-brat anti-government (COUP-seeking) Koch brother oil barons and their network of money-over-patriotism rich goons, you will perhaps understand why the off-course way-too-far right-wing Congressional Republicans were so willing to ABUSE POWER and MISAPPROPRIATE our tax dollars in a desperate attempt to “lower her [Hillary’s] poll numbers” (as their own right-wing Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy., R-CA, accidently admitted in a slip-of-the-lip press conference while running for Boehner’s Speaker job) on a single attack on a CIA OUTPOST, something the criminally partisan GOP did not want any of us to know. I honestly do not know if any of the Russian MAFIA crap was involved in this running attack on strong, successful, decent, intelligent, feared by the GOP (and by Putin) incredibly qualified Hillary Rodham Clinton—the most experienced candidate we have ever had for our President. What I do know, however, is that from the moment Hillary Clinton stepped onto the national stage she came under old-white-men attacks from 1990 on through to present day. It should be noted that NONE of the attacks on Hillary were ever substantiated.Back to the one election-year (9/11/2012) violent attack BY Gaddafi loyalists on a CIA OUTPOST in the newly liberated Libyan village of Benghazi: The three Navy SEALs who died that night were CIA OPERATIVES, under the control and jurisdiction of then-CIA Director (and Republican) General David Petraeus. So home come the American people were not ever told this exculpatory (of Hillary) truth? In addition, then-Junior Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) accidently revealed in yet another GOP slip-of-the-lip Press Conference one month after the Benghazi attack that the Republican-controlled House had “slashed” more than $435 MILLION from Secretary Clinton’s State Department budget requests for security for all of our world-wide U.S. diplomatic sites—and Chaffetz said this GLEEFULLY as though he took mean delight in “sticking it to” the one possible Presidential candidate the GOP feared the most.For those of us who watched the 2012 attack on MSNBC “The Rachel Maddow Show” LIVE, as I did, we saw the U.S.-loving Benghazi villagers, Muslims all, try to help us the night of the attack, which shows that our diplomacy efforts worked. Secretary Clinton’s long-time friend Ambassador Chris Stevens was so eager to get to work in Libya that he got special permission from David Petraeus to borrow their CIA OUTPOST due to the huge budget cuts to begin his work winning hearts and minds, and win them he did. These villagers tried to save the unconscious Ambassador Stevens the night of the attack, carrying him to their local hospital where he died from the kerosene fire’s toxic fumes. These good people then came back to the site, each one carrying handmade signs that read, “We are sorry, America!”; “This is not what Islam is about!?”; “We love Ambassador Stevens!”; “We love the United States.” How come none of this was ever brought out at any of the GOP’s “hearings” for four+ years??The Republicans controlled House, Senate, and the White House from 2001 through to 2008, and between those years there were THIRTEEN ATTACKS on legitimate U.S. diplomatic sites, and from 2001-2004 while Secretary of State was GW-appointed Republican Colin Powell, Colin Powell used a…gasp!…private server, as he later told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and then Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press.” “I erased all of my emails,” admitted Colin Powell. How many “hearings” were held on any of these THIRTEEN deadly ATTACKS—two of which were on the SAME CONSULATE in Karachi, Pakistan?? To quote one of the Anonymous respondents: “Zero. Nada, None, Goose egg, zilch.”The private server former First Lady Hillary Clinton used during her four-year tenure at the State Department, by the way, was the one set up for a former-President husband Bill Clinton (the highest possible security clearance) by his SECRET SERVICE DETAIL! How come that was not brought out by the criminally partisan Congressional Republicans? They also neglected to mention that the only rule in place for the State Department was the 1955 Foreign Information Act, a rule that allows the use of a private server, but that asks work-related communications have copies—something Hillary honored, but which Colin Powell did not.Hillary Clinton was libeled and slandered every way possible, and we, the people, were robbed of millions of dollars in misspent, misappropriated taxpayer dollars to fund what the Congressional Republicans KNEW ALL ALONG was not criminal! We all should file a class-action suit to get our money back with interest—and we should insist that they all APOLOGIZE to our legitimate 45th President who had a plan to get American workers profit-sharing. We needed Hillary’s wisdom, her incredible patience, and her inner strength in our White House and we, the people, wanted BUDGET-BALANCING and SURPLUS-BUILDING Bill Clinton at her side.
Is the right-wing nightmare almost over.
THIS CONSERVATIVE CERTAINLY THINK SO. LET’S HOPE HE’S RIGHT.”There are cycles in history where one party or one movement ascends for a while and then it sows the seeds of its own self-destruction,” said Bruce Bartlett, a conservative analyst and author of the 2006 book “Impostor: How…
Unfortunately, I still see so many die hard supporters of horribly wrong headed views, such as that it is perfectly ok for the US to engage in the permanent detention, torture, and execution without trial of citizens of other countries. It is perfectly ok for the US to run foreign gulags, violate the Geneva Conventions, suspend habeus corpus, engage in domestic spying and illegal surveillance, secretly abolish the FISA court, add signing statements to congressional bills exempting the executive branch from their purview, fire US attorneys for political purposes, incompetently respond to every disaster, engage in unprovoked war…This list grows tediously long, and yet so many people think the sun shines on every incompetent act over which this administration presides.

Why are there no wing chun or kung fu practitioners in the MMA.
I dont know a lot about MMA so maybe this is a stupid question but i dont think there are MMA fighters who use JKD, wing chun etc. Why is this.
To be fully honest… I don’t know. Reality is, there is no reason. I have a feeling that it has more to do with how the words “MMA” were created. MMA was created through the path of the UFC and PRIDE and other such full contact fighting competitions. MMA is supposed to stand for Mixed Marrtial Arts, which means a fighter takes his/her favorite techniques from ANY martial art and blends them to create a unique and personal style. However, because of organizations like the UFC whose fighters were made famous and they mostly trained in certain MA’s, MMA came to stand for any mix of: Brazilian Jujitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, or Boxing, with little else included. This is evident even in the way you wrote your question, you referred to “the” MMA. I think you meant to write “the UFC,” but like so many, you confused the concept of personalized martial arts training (MMA) with a fighting organization (UFC). By the way, I am really tired of everyone saying that certain traditional and Chinese arts aren’t applicable for streetfighting or aren’t “functional.” How do you think these arts were invented then? And why do you think they were invented? Have any of you TMA denouncers ever even picked up a history book? The FACT is that all Chinese martial arts were created out of a necessity for self defense. China used to be comprised of 5 separate states that were constantly at war, it is in the fires of these wars that most Chinese martial arts were forged: tested in real-time on the battle field in life or death situations. Wing Chun, Choy Li Fut, Shaolin, and WuShu were all battle tested and saved lives. There aren’t any special “modern” circumstances that make them obsolete. Fighters today simply don’t believe that there is any logic to a fight other than “Ug, me hit hard, me tough!” We need to be careful not to take the “art” away from martial arts. Wing Chun’s centerline theory, Shaolin’s internal Chi power, and Wushu’s flowing motions are all Advanced Combat. These are techniques that, after having learned and long ago mastered the basics of attack and block, were created from an intimate knowledge of how the human body works and the process that fights go through. These are not techniques that any beginning fighter can just pick up and utilize, one must first build a foundation and then ascend to the higher skill level it takes to truly realize these techniques. It seems that most fighters today want to stay beginners and not truly gain any skill, only strength, speed, and stamina. We must strive to be artists of the battle field, not merely drones who do what the television tells us to do.Happy Training.
