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.

  Colonel Mortimer: <Larryfyffe: <HMM> apparently thinks South and Central American countries want to be taken over by the US, puppet governments established, food supply controlled by agribusiness, disregard for the environment, heath care for those who can afford it, guns for everybody, no political parties allowed that are not under the control of big money, production for export and corporate profit, poverty for everyone else, death squads trained by the US, torture of domestic'socialists' and 'communists', their children kidnapped, citizens fleeing up north. Yeah, <HMM> , that is want they want.>

Well put. And even if this 'American' system was of benefit to other cultures, why should they be *forced* to adopt it?

Surely if something is 'good' it would be freely adopted rather than imposed at the end of a barrel?

But this is the essence of <HeMateMe>'s argument - that socialism is so awful, that WE the US reserve the right to impose an equally awful system on your country, for the benefit of OUR US corporations.

Jun-14-18  Nisjesram: <colonel Mortimer><ell put. And even if this 'American' system was of benefit to other cultures, why should they be *forced* to adopt it>

Did British colonialists not say the same thing - "burden of the white man.."

Bloody scoundrels were massacring Indian women and children for their own good.

Yep, and for a long time this was deemed acceptable, in the name of 'civilisation'.

The US is not much different, stylistic differences perhaps, but still an empire.

Does uncle Sam have blood of innocents of Chile on its hands?

  HeMateMe: <The evils of empire, particularly the British one, is not something I've ever denied.>

then you should talk about it MORE with that big mouth of yours, <mort.> You're a guy who grew up in the mid east or north Africa hating white men, especially jewish white men, from the get-go. you're the real embarrassment. You're just jealous of the large, wealthy nations Mort. Tuff Shid.

Trump's admiration for the little north Korean turd really is an embarrassment. Trump: "He took over a WHOLE country at age 27! How many people could do that? one in ten thousand?" Trump really said that, it's a direct quote. He kisses Putin's azz the same way.

Damn, this is what some of us Americans voted for. I can only hope he's voted out in 2020.

<How Many Americans Know Where North Korea Is?>

Two idiots pointed to Australia!

Now, how about providing an example of protesting aborigines being murdered?

  HeMateMe: the aborigines in OZ were as mistreated as American blacks in the southern USA. Their land was seized and they were driven off at gun point. The native peoples in Australia have been treated as second class citizens since the day British criminal transports arrived. Even as late as the 20th century the black babies of aborigines could be taken from their mothers and given to whites to adopt.

So you can't actually provide an example of protesting aborigines being murdered.

Didn't think so.

Now, do you know where North Korea is?

  HeMateMe: <List of massacres of Indigenous Australians>

<1816. Appin massacre. New South Wales Governor Macquarie sent soldiers against the Gundungurra and Dharawal people on their lands along the Cataract River, a tributary of the Nepean River (south of Sydney), in reprisal for violent conflicts with white settlers (in which several died) in the adjoining Nepean and Cowpastures districts, during a time of drought.[16] The punitive expedition split in two at Bent's Basin, with one group moving south-west against the Gundungurra, and the other moving south-east against the Dharawal. This latter group came upon Cataract Gorge, where the soldiers used their horses to force men, women and children to fall from the cliffs of the gorge, to their deaths below.[17][18]:7 On April 17, around 1 am soldiers arrived at a camp of Dharawal people at Appin. Captain Willis from the party of soldiers wrote:>

Do you even know where Auschwitz is? Buchenwald? ignoring one's own history is a bad thing, mate.

  HeMateMe: mort's British ancestors were driven out of Palestine by a smaller, but better motivated Jewish guerilla force. Mort has hated Israel ever since.

<mort> = loser.

That said, I had no clue where NK was on the map.

  saffuna: <It’s true that there are families of veterans who fell in Korea who are still trying to recover remains. But Trump then told a story about parents of Korean War veterans who purportedly approached him during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“So many people asked when I was on the campaign,” Trump said. “I’d say, ‘wait a minute, I don’t have any relationship’ — but they said, ‘when you can, president, we’d love our son to be brought back home’ — you know, the remains.”>

Right, Donald, of course.

Any parents of Korean War veterans have to be well over a hundred years old.

That's funny, and Democrats are the most ignorant :)

Here's another funny one: <New Zealand named the world's most ignorant developed country>

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business...

Jun-14-18  Larryfyffe: <HMM> likes to regale veterans of the Korean War with stories about the time he led his platoon up Heartbreak Ridge.
Jun-14-18  Larryfyffe: Comparing America's slavery of blacks to Australia's maltreatment of its aborigines is certainly a very odd way for <HMM> to attempt another white-wash of American history....very odd, indeed.

Which country was more cruel in its treatment of its fellow human beings is now up for debate. Should be interesting.

Jun-14-18  Bobsterman3000: <HeMateMe: I have happy memories of staggering into the 24 hour White Castle as a drunk college student, at 2:00am. I don't know if Japan has purchased White Castle.>

Back when you could still fit through the door?

Thank God for uber eats !!
