Might be the wrong thing to say but it is true. A field hand cost $1,200. That was a lot of money back then. Only a total fool would mistreat someone worth that much. I have read of slave owners that let some slaves run small businesses of their own such as shoemaking. When they had enough money they could buy their freedom. All of us are slaves to the shylocks that run this country and the world with their money creation and usury. Everything you buy has a certain amount of the cost represented by usury. When you pay taxes a certain amount goes to pay the usury on government debt. Most of your pols are in bed with these shylocks.
I worked for minimum once for a few months. Even in high school I got paid more for doing yard work. I never had a problem getting a job. I had a very hard job in West Texas during Truman's "depression" in 1949. I had lied about my age when 16 and worked for a contractor doing power line work for the Lyntegar Electric Co-op out of Tahoka, Texas. I watched grown men work a few days and quit because they said the work was too hard. We dug post holes six feet deep and eighteen inches in diameter by hand. We loaded thirty five foot poles on a dolly by hand and set them the same way. But, I learned my job and later it paid off with a good job with PT&T that enabled me to retire early with a decent income. No formal education, just a GED that I got while in an Army Hospital. I was always willing to work and pay my way though. I've got little use for those that aren't willing to work and pay their way.
I remember years ago while working on a telephone line two old ladies were using that I cut it because they were taking forever. I made the transfer quickly. I listened while they reconnected. One told the other that she called back immediately and the phone rang and rang. She told her friend she wondered where that ring went. I guess cells operate the same way. The caller will hear a ring whether the phone is hooked up or not.
Most of so called "Conservatives" are controlled by the same gang of banksters that control the "Libs". I know a lady that held a very high position in the East. Out of a clear blue sky one day she stated that ;"Ten banks run this whole country." If they run the country you know they run the pols of both parties. Now, they do fight among themselves over the spoils but don't be deceived, the spoils they fight over come from our pockets.
Weather program today mentioned Detroit will have all time record for snow. At least for the time men have been recording it. I guess the "Ice Giants" mentioned in Nordic legend are on the march.
"Big Bubba" has been spying on people under whichever party has been in power going back many years. They spied on peoples mail and phones years ago without warrants. Laws? We don't need no stinkin' laws.
Must have read the news wrong. He took a DEMS. place from what I read. In doing my taxes I see my health ins. has gone from $219 at the first of last year to $299 by Dec. A little over 35%. Gee. I thought health care would be reduced by Liver Lips. Would he lie to us? You bet your sweet bippy he would and has.
Another story. A company of 101st Airborne were in an Oakland terminal waiting for a flight to 'Nam. A commie creep came in with his treasonous literature. One of the men stood up and decked him. He went running out and got a cop. Cop walks in and asks; Who hit this man?" 200 troopers stood up and said; "I did." Cop shrugs his shoulders and walks out.
I've mentioned before that a Scripps Inst. of Oceanography scientist showed me sediment cores taken from the ocean bottom that pretty much show the climate going back 250,000 years. They show much more extreme weather both hotter and colder, wetter and dryer in the past than man has recorded in the past few hundred years. That's why the con artists changed their spiel from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change." Climate ALWAYS changes. Day to day, week to week, month to month, year to year and millennia to millennia. The thieves and their ;paid stooges just want to use the "Big Lie" to dip their hands in your pockets and get more control over us all.
Yep those "peaceful" members of Harry Bridge's Longshoremans Union. Flying Viet Cong flags and calling for their victory. Oh, they were carrying bailing hooks too. Sure sounds like peaceful demonstrators to me. Most of our guys were veterans from WW2, Korea and 'Nam. We had a little problem with people calling for the victory of those killing our troops. Even the cops looked the other way when we walked off. Too bad you weren't there.
Yes, there WAS a depression in 1949. In spite of it I sat in a Texas employment office for all of 15 minutes when a man came in looking for help stringing REA power lines. I saw many grown men (I was 16) quit because they claimed the work was too hard. I had missed too many meals while on the road and liked to eat so I stayed. Know what caused the economy's collapse in 1929? In 1934 in a Congressional meeting Mariner Eccles who had been Chair of the "Fed" in 1929 was asked directly, "What caused the collapse?" He replied, "We (the "Fed") closed the credit window." The depression wasn't ended until the build up for WW2 began in 1937.
Just like the gang of goons telling us all that we shouldn't mind government spying on us if we have nothing to hide? Two faced hypocritical liars, all of them.
Slavery in the South was better than what they had in Africa. I certainly don't approve of such but look at facts. Even today with Black Rule in most of Africa the peoples lot is no better than slavery and in some cases worse (Zimbabwe). A very few in the old south had slaves. I'm sure most poor farmers and craftsmen that supported themselves resented the wealthy that used slaves in competition with them. Very few CSA troops were slave owners and DID NOT fight to preserve slavery but to stop what they considered foreign interests from taking their land over. I had relatives that fought for that reason.
Anyone that stays in a minimum wage job for very long has to have a room temp IQ. I made more than minimum picking cotton in West Texas when I was 16. I remember Truman's depression in 1949. They had unions ,high taxes and a relatively higher minimum wage then. So, what happened? Dems. were in charge then too.
My friend, we all have much in common if we could sit down and discuss rationally our thoughts. I knew a young man in the San Diego area years ago whose father was a leftist activist. Pat Brown rewarded him for his support in the local paper he owned by granting him a state charter for a bank. (Usury) I talked to this young guy and feel I made some sense with him. I later heard he had taken a tour in Turkey and got caught with marijuana. Their laws are very strict in that regard. Never heard what happened to him. Have felt bad ever since. I have much info showing connections between "left" and "right" in politics. It's a scam to keep control of us and keep fleecing the "sheeple".
Cruz? Tied in with Benny Henn and his whole family. Nah, I'd have nothing to do with him. Just another religious fraud.
You don't understand anything either. Comprende "Usury" and fiat money? Do you understand that the "Fed" creates credit and money from thin air and then charges usury on it? It's not government either. It's privately owned. Doubt me? Call one of the branches and ask who ever answers if they are a government employee. Also, look in government listings in the green pages of a directory for government offices. The "Fed" is NOT listed.
No, just the room temperature IQ types.
There is no choice. Both parties are controlled by the banksters., Pay no attention to the rhetoric. Watch what they do. Few understand what our money system is all about. Read up on Lincoln and his United States Notes issued to pay for the Civil War. Many believe he was murdered because he stopped the banksters from getting their vigorish from that conbtrived war. The nice banksters have hidden the 4.5 billion in U. S. Notes in their vaults even though the law says they are to circulate. Your laws mean nothing to the thieves in control of your government.
