Ridden bikes a lot. Managed to slip in for several third places in shorter tri-athlons. Have run numerous ultra-marathons from 50K to 100 miles and a few 24 hr. track runs.
Are you trying to smear me? I've been charged with a felony once but never convicted. "Machine Gun?" A perfectly legal Beretta conversion of an M-1 Garand made for me by Juan Erquiaga who was Castro's armorer in the Sierra Maestro before Castro announced he was a commie. Juan then denounced him and fled Cuba with a death sentence on his head. Be careful my friend. If you were worth it I'd expose you to all and sundry.
Your history is screwed up just like you. It wasn't until the 1800's that slavery really grew. Women, generally could own property early on. Native Americans did quite a bit of slaughter of their own and had it returned in kind. I personally think that in order to vote a person should rate a certain IQ level and pass a test on knowledge of government. I've seen too many dumb heads voting on issues and people they know nothing about.
Someone here took me to task for stating that markets are rigged. Read the Yahoo News about five large banks that rigged markets Goes on all the time in very subtle ways. Just as those that play the game with our un-elected rulers get fat contracts from government. It makes no difference whether they call themselves "Dems." or "Reps".
They didn't vote at all probably. Doubt many are registered as anything. Many are ex felons and couldn't vote anyway. I'll bet plenty of commies voted for liver lips though.
What would you do if someone made you "fear for your life" and you had the means to stop them? If I'm threatened I will use any means to protect myself and family. I dare say you would too. I used extraordinary means to protect myself and two friends from three carloads of thugs once. They tried charging me with felony assault. It was dropped before it went to trial. Pretty hard to prove one man assaulted about a dozen people that had chased us out of a drive in and cornered us up a cul-de-sac.
I thought they had "dead man" controls many years ago. The Engineer claims he doesn't remember what happened. Passed out? Or, maybe deliberate. Could be many things. Let's wait and see.
No real Christian can side with either party, nor with most organized groups. Including major "religious" groups.
Did he? I don't think you know. I've not supported any war since I've been an adult. I briefly supported Korea.. Even tried to get in the marines the day after it started but was only 17 and (thank God) my dad wouldn't sign for me. By the time I was 18 and saw how it was being run (under Truman, a Democrat) I just sat back and waited to be drafted.
A certain living wage should be exempted from ALL taxes. Everything above that should be taxed at the same rate with very few deductions.. Even welfare recipients pay taxes on just about all that they buy.
More fiat money produced than any other president. The chickens will come home to roost very soon. I'm hedged against them. Are you ?
I go back a few years to Harry Truman, Democrat. His Secty. of State Dean Acheson, stated that "So. Korea is outside our sphere of influence." A few days later the North invaded and over 3 years we lost 50.000 men. But, the military industrial complex and the banksters made billions just as they do from all wars and "Police Actions." The same thing is going on now with military stationed all over the world. BOTH Dems. and Reps. are involved in the same racket With nothing different but the rhetoric.
Party's make little difference. Both Hoover AND Roosevelt were plutocrats of the first order. I've given you the title and author of a book that tells the story of the market rigging in 1929. Col. Curtis Dahl, FDR's son-in-law, worked as a floor trader on the NYSE at that time. In his book "FDR, My Exploited Father In Law." He documents the rigging of the market and names four of the chief parties involved. One was Joseph Kennedy. Why don't you get the book and learn something? Or are you just a shill for those that do the rigging?
Satan lost a battle in the heavens ages ago and he and his followers were cast into the earth. He's called the "God" of this place and will rule until Christ returns. "The" Adam was placed here to depose Satan but he failed miserably. Not much longer to go. Make sure you pick the right side.
Markets do what those that rig them want them to do. Do read up on what preceded the crash of 1929. I have an interesting book by the man that married Roosevelt's oldest girl, Anna, He was a floor trader on the NYSE and watched the collapse up front. He names four people (Joe Kennedy was one) that were given unlimited funds by the banksters to sell short. I also have an official government book on the "Fed." It quotes the head of the "Fed" in a 1934 congressional hearing that they helped collapse the market by "closing the credit window". This after they did just what they are doing today. Creating huge sums of debt based money.
The spying has been going on for a long time. I worked for good old "Ma" Bell. I ran into taps both legal and illegal. They've been checking mail at least as far back as WW2. These boards are monitored for certain key words. It's gone on since long before Bush's.
Phony religious hucksters are as bad as any far out lefty. Bible warns us about BOTH groups.
When it falls it will be a real debacle. I am wondering if the real rulers of America haven't set Obama up. I've hedged myself as best I can and have family members that will work together.
