Any government so intrusive it tells you how you can carry groceries home from the store is too big and needs reform.

So, vote.

HI MA!
The problems are many but the solution is one; A quick dirty, surgical war with some dum pluckers what dont expect it. The A-rabs expect it....so what about the philpines, ecuador, canada, alaska, england, or any place without too much sand. Then we can raise the price on everything so that what you acn afford won't require a bag. praise god and drink the other guys drink.

has a delete for my own BS and it does me no good. A delete button for others' posts would leave me uninformed if I used it every time I disagreed with a post. My news feed would be a pretty quiet and lonely place.
Better to SEE people revealing who they really are anytime you have the opportunity to observe it.
This is the foundation of 'preparedness'. As for just above me there-
"praise god and drink the other guys drink"

Read the scriptures, you sad goofs! God speaks to me and is mad because you wont listen. Remember that each time you hear of a weather disaster, that means that he is mad at you for not listening to me and doing what he wants which is what I am trying to tell you. Send $49.95, plus $18.49 shipping &handling, to receive the gospel. You must stop annoying him with laws, regulations, taxes, welfare, whines and whimpers....he just wants the detaile good news of the begatting and begetting...BEGONE.

Did you want the $49 dollars in American money or will Bitcoins work?

One must be careful choosing the location of the next war.

A really good war requires mud, decent looking women, places to get booze and an enemy that looks different than you.

Choose wisely, the last few wars have been rather inhospitable in some aspects.
Thanks in advance.

You've asked yourself that question several times already.

Have you arrived at the answer yet?

Yes. I agree, but how do we answer those who say that Topix is plagued every summer with little White children making inane comments vying with the Africans for the title of "most stupid"? According to their reasoning, high paid taxpayer supported Government teachers are salaried, not hourly rate employees. It wouldn't cost any more to keep Government schools open year round.
