From all recent accounts, the Neanderthals were just as intelligent and resourceful as their Homo Sapiens counterparts. Their biological structure, however, was more demanding of nutrition from the surrounding Ice Age environment and so they lost out.
You, on the other hand, have an extremely efficient biology.
You can live off of nothing but sh*t and be happy about it.
That's one theory.
Another theory is they were not as mentally capable as Cro Magnum, and lost a global war for territory and died out.

County sheriffs are typically financed at the county level, not by the state.
If the federal government moved to confiscate guns, federal agents doing so in defiance of local law enforcement would create serious problems.
Nah, don't guess pal because you'll be wrong as usual.

Question__which law enforcement agency physically collects and reviews gun sale transactions at gun stores and pawn shops in your state? Who, in your state can relieve an elected Sheriff or states attorney from duty?

Stop being a fkn stooge of the right.

But you go ahead. You cling to the notion that because of some pointless series of events that your daughter's not a slut but somebody else's is. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah, there you go, honey. Now we know the truth. Only... it don't work that way.

The products of great "civilizations" have been exemplified by intelligentsia with time on their hands. Greek, Roman, Chinese, Mayan, Minoan, Egyptian, to name a few, were all advanced with slave labor.

Your examples paid their 'slaves' room and board, money, whatever, but it freed up their time. Even though they didn't hold the literal power of life and death over them, the premise is the same.

In allllll the history of the world no civilization has managed to survive even a very few centuries. Ours is no exception despite what the President may imply. People are people and, when faced with the big choices they inevitably make the wrong ones, like you do. Over and over and over and over.... the lesson to be drawn from your analogy is much simpler than the one you think you're conveying: people suck at thinking ahead beyond their own immediate needs. The most insightful person on earth knows enough to simply sit down and watch. Any other course will lead inexorably to disaster.

Shut up, fatty. You've got nothing to say of any interest. Go watch TV and pretend you've got anything to say to anyone smarter than a Golden Retriever. Do it. Do it now!!! nobody cared what you had to say when you were young and they certainly haven't got anything to say to you now.
