KENNETH S ROGOFF
(born Mar-22-1953, 65 years old) United States of America

[what is this?]
Kenneth Saul Rogoff learned chess from his father at age six, but only took up the game in earnest when he received a chess set for his 13th birthday. He was soon recognised as a chess prodigy. By age 14, he was a USCF master and New York State Open Champion, and shortly thereafter became a senior master, the highest US national title. At sixteen, Rogoff dropped out of high school to concentrate on chess, and spent the next several years living primarily in Europe and playing in tournaments there. When eighteen, he made the decision to go to college and pursue a career in economics rather than to become a professional player, although he continued to play and improve for several years afterward.

Rogoff was awarded the IM title in 1974 and the GM title in 1978. He came third in the World Junior Championship of 1971 and finished second in the US Championship of 1975, which doubled as a Zonal competition, one-half point behind Walter Shawn Browne; this result qualified him for the 1976 Interzonal at Biel, where he finished 13-15th. In other tournaments he finished equal first at Norristown 1973 and Orense 1976.

Early in his economics career, Rogoff served as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund and also at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. He is currently the Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard University.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: You talk too much <big pawn> . Why ? You like to listening to yourself or you really have this delusion someone cares what you think/say ,other than your fellow kindergarten kids , of course .

I liked what <bobsterman> said however.

You know what he said, right ?

He said "look at <big pawn> limping back in this forum after getting his ass kicked by his daddy <nisjesram> in omv debate"

  Big Pawn: < Nisjesram: You talk too much <big pawn> . Why ? You like to listening to yourself or you really have this delusion someone cares what you think/say ,other than your fellow kindergarten kids , of course . >

Everyone cares what I say and think. When I speak, those who agree with me, agree loudly and enthusiastically. Those who disagree with me seek me when I'm not here, calling for me over and over again.

I am a lightning rod for debate. I pull people in to debate who normally do their best to stay away from debate. I'm charismatic and charming. I am the most interesting poster on this site and have been for years. When people want to debate, they want to debate me first and foremost.

Everyone steals all of my sayings too. I am often imitated, which is the most sincere form of flattery.

You, on the other hand, are just another egg in the carton and you know it.

Life is fair.
Life is good.

  Big Pawn: I love some of the comments on that amren.com podcast.

<Sadly the young self loathing white segment of the Democrat Party, mostly young college educated females and effeminate cucked males, could not be happier. They will gladly sign on with the non-whites to push for a form of anti-white socialism that would destroy our republic and our liberty. The issue is how to change the direction when the demographics, the education system, and the culture completely work against you.>

This next guy has a very interesting perspective, which I've been hearing more and more lately.

<Those are the millennials. The next generation, Gen Z despise the cucks as you so accurately label them and they absolutely love the way Trump talks.

I'm optimistic about the future of this country once those kids start voting. My nephew and his friends are all 16-18 now.>

The next comment comes from a poster named <Far Right Millennial>.

< FarRightMillenial HT 2 days ago

The issue is how to change the direction when the demographics, the education system, and the culture completely work against you."

If we just look at white demographics, we're not doing so bad. Our birthrate is horrendous precisely because leftists don't breed.

It's the non-whites breeding like roaches combined with mass immigration that's hurting us.

The BEST thing you can do for ANY movement is have 3+ kids and raise them to think like you do.>

He's right. The cuck libs don't have the balls to make babies. Look at <hmm> for instance. Liberalism screws up men and turns them into women, basically, and the birthrate is way down. It takes man to have a family, and liberal men aren't men.

Then you have these comments that I just don't understand and find unnecessary. It's comments like this that show that there is a weird strain of people in the alt-right that have this giant boner for those JOOZ!

<Ocasio-Cortez is a negress?!?! That hair straightener sure works wonders. A ho masquerading as a hispanic! Next thing you know Jews will be masquerading as whites!>

What is that? Some Jews are white and some aren't. I don't get the JOO HATE.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: <big pawn> < Those who disagree with me seek me when I'm not here, calling for me over and over again.>

Look, people get 'fascinated' by the story of Charlie Mason (perhaps there is some Hollywood movie on him too) but that does not mean they value any of his traits.

When I said 'care' , I used it in sense of 'value'.

People value you as much as they value <Mason> or Jim Carrey character in the movie 'dumb and dumber' and so on....

Well , we digressing .

Point is , I value this statement of <bobsterman> very much : <"Look at <big pawn> limping back in this forum after getting his ass kicked by <nisjesram> in omv debate. ">

I don't have to answer that personal question, but I will say this. My first child was a boy.

Real men have boys first.

Europe's white population is not doing well at all. Cuck city.

Aren't you ashamed?

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: <big pawn><Real men have boys first>

Fascinating.

Has this theory been peer reviewed already?

So, you got addicted to this forum after your girlfriend left you or she left you after you got addicted?

  Bureaucrat: My first child was a boy, too. I guess I passed the test. :)
Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: <reaucrat: Do you live with your wife and kids>

He never married , of course.

Are you blind? Do you think he is a 'husband' material - marriage type? Such an irresponsible , immature loser always yapping in this forum....

Girlfriend of <big pawn> left with child saying that she did not want any maintenance so that she does not have to see <big pawn> any more.

Since then <big pawn> has been doing some eight step program to forgive his mother and father for failing to help him become a real man.

N.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: <ureaucrat: My first child was a boy, too. I guess I passed the test. :)>

Well, according to <big pawn> bullsh$t theory converse is not true:

First child of real men is boy but not all the men having boy as first child are real men.

So, you did not pass test (but you did not fail at this point yet, however. This test is for rejection, not selection)- test of widely acclaimed <big pawn> bullsh$t theory

  Bureaucrat: Nisj, you could put it differently:

To be a "real man" you need to pass several tests, and first child being a boy is just one of many tests.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: <reaucrat: Nisj, you could put it differently: To be a "real man" you need to pass several tests, and first child being a boy is just one of many tests>

Well, I could , but then I would have to say that son of God , Jesus was not a real man. Nor is any of those celibate priests.

If you ok with that, then I am too :)

  Big Pawn: <Bureaucrat>, I will not be answering personal questions about my family and you should know better than that. My wife and kids are not up for discussion here.

<Nizzle>, just because you are invisible to fine, hot women doesn't mean everyone is. I am the kind of guy that the chicks love!

Women HATE, HATE, HATE a weak man, and they can smell the a mile away. Weak men are the ones who cuck to the women, tell them they are so beautiful, pretend to be feminists, and carry on pathetically thinking that they must do these things in order to score a date.

Women might <say> they like sensitive men and so forth, but in reality, they hate them. They will use sensitive men to get by in life, but they will cheat on them with real alpha males every chance they get.

Women use beta males and are disgusted by them, but never tell them. Any woman that is with a beta male is secretly watching that alpha male down the street, or across the room, or in line at the store, wishing they could be alone together.

I went to a party once and there were a number of fine women hanging around. I went into one room and there were these awkward liberal cuck beta males standing around trying to make conversation with some of the finer chicks. Everyone was being polite and chatting. The liberal beta males were talking about political stuff and saying what they thought the women wanted to hear.

They were saying stuff like the <admired a strong woman> and that some of their friends were embarrassing <knuckle draggers> who wanted their wives to stay at home and so forth. Then they were talking about other liberal things with the women, trying to impress them, like saying "who cares if you're a homosexual? It doesn't bother me. What's with all the hate?"

But all the conversation was very forced and threatened to stall at any moment.

I approached the group and all the guys knew me because we worked together. They knew I wasn't like them. They rolled their eyes as if to say to the girls, "Speaking of neanderthals, here comes one now. We already apologize for his behavior!"

I went to the hottest one, who was about 10 years younger than me, and said, "I'm big pawn, what's your name?". She was like, "Hi, I'm Nicky". I said, "Hey Nicky, nice to meet you (I was smiling devilishly). I wanted to meet you because I caught you staring at me from across the room..."

And everyone laughed. Her face turned red. I asked her (she was really hot), "Does your mom know about this?"

She said, "About what?"

I said, "that you have a thing for older guys?"

Everyone laughed.

She had trouble finding something to say, but I looked her in the eyes. The beta males wanted me to go away so bad.

At this point someone bumped into her and she spilled her drink. A little got on her and a little got on me.

"Oh my God, I'm sorry" she said.

I said, "Don't worry about it. Look, if you take me out to dinner later, I'll let you do whatever you want to me!"

Everyone chuckled.

She left with me.

The beta males couldn't figure it out.

True story.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: After all we talking about <big pawn> bullsh&t theory, so what does it matter anyways :)

:) N

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: How brave you are <bureaucrat> ? Could you read that long treatise by <big pawn> ?

I gave up after first line.

I would rather stick needles in my eyes :)

  Bureaucrat: Lol.

What's the big deal? I have a wife and kids. Nothing secret about that. If you don't have a wife and kids, that's fine. I believe people are of equal value regardless of their family status.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: Ok, now I mustered some courage .

I find nothing more abhorrant than promiscuous men bragging how women find them attractive , how they can pick up women ...etc.

Childish , kindergarten kids.

Real men don't charm women with superficiality. If they have to find a companion , they seek a woman who has become as strong as them by following teachings of Jesus and thus dissolving emotions like pride , greed and so on.

Forgive your father , <big pawn> for being such a bad role model for you .

But don't worry - I am your daddy now. You got a real man as your role model now.

  Big Pawn: <Soy Boy #2: What's the big deal? >

There is no big deal.

Why do you ask?

It's just that my family is not up for discussion on this forum.

Don't like that? Too bad. Deal with it.

Point is, cuck libs don't have the balls to have kids and raise them. If they do have kids by accident, they pay people to kill them and throw them in the trash so they can go on and continue sleeping around and drugging it up.

Just ask <HMM>. He killed all his kids.

Ask him.

Oooooh! Struck a NERVE with <Nizzle>.

Ouch! Found a sensitive spot!

And yeah, I know you read every word of what I write. Every last word. There is nothing you could say that would convince me otherwise.

<Real men don't charm women with superficiality. If they have to find a companion , they seek a woman who has become as strong as them by following teachings of Jesus and thus dissolving emotions like pride , greed and so on.>

Horse @#$%!

Woman are attracted to REAL MEN, not beta males like you. Look at how pathetic you are, talking just like the guys at the party in my story. You're talking about <a strong woman>.

BARF!!

It's <natural> for a woman to be attracted to a strong man. They HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE weak men!

They HATE them. A weak man makes a woman SICK to her stomach.

See, being raised by your mom without a father has left you on queer street when it comes to women. You're like a woman in spirit and they can sense that. That's why it never works out for you <Nizzle>.

Forgive your mother and you will become a real man overnight. The girls will notice. Trust me.

Jul-22-18  Nisjesram: <big pawn> you talk too much.

For a change , shut up and listen to the wise words of <bobsterman> : <"Look at <big pawn> limping back in the forum after getting his kicked by <nisjesram> in omv debate">

Hahaha

It never gets old.

  Big Pawn: <Nizzle>, you know why the women keep leaving you, after they lie to you and cheat on you? Because you are just like your mama. The girls can't help it. It's nature. It's natural. When they see a real man, nature causes them to follow him. It's deep inside. It's pure nature.

Don't go and pretend to be macho and try something new. That won't work either. It might fool the girls for a while, but they will see that you are still temperamental, jealous, weak, depressed, angry and so on. Just like mama.

Macho is not being a real man. That's fake.

To be a real man, you need a spiritual change and you can't will that to happen. It's all wrapped up in forgiveness and the spiritual order to life.

Any man who is enticed by women is not a real man.

Any man who is enticed by men is not a real man either.

Like Jesus I am beyond attraction of this world whicheven a kid like <big pawn> knows is a fake reality.

But that kid knows it at the level of intellect only, I know it at level of experience. I live it.

Anyway , we digressing....point is ....well you know the rest.
