instead of learning these things from you, they all just go into the great bin of things that Buck believes ... I presume that you post these things to inform others about them and that you would like to be believed. The difference between accomplishing that and not is the difference between making unsupported claims and providing credible supporting documentation.

My objective is to hit the high points where facts contradict the story fed to the media by the government. Each can decide if he wants to know more.
OK. I would like to know more, but only if all I have to do is read it. I'm not interested enough to research it. So, in the bin it remains.

My conclusion is solidified by the 2011 documentary, which is, that the raid was a stunt, people died, and then Clinton and Reno's actions to dispense with the embarrassment led to the death of the people. They made up the suspicion of child abuse - just like Hillary made up the youtube video demonstration at Benghazi.
I'm also convinced the guilt of it contributed to Vince Foster killing himself 90 days later.
I'll file all of this with the other. The documentary <

Wiki had next to nothing on it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waco:_A_New_Reve...

A review by Daniel Jolley "darkgenius" at < http://www.amazon.com/Waco-New-Revelation-Gen... > seemed very intelligent and impartial, and convinced me that if I ever want to give two hours to this subject, this documentary that you linked to would be a good place to go.

That, by the way, is the way to write/speak if you wish to be read/listened to. The use of extreme language filled with judgment makes the source seem not credible. You tended to do a lot of that yourself until recently. You are much more effective when you are more even as you have been in your handling of this topic.

And, of course, if you would ever deign to include quotes and links to support your more controversial contentions, you would be more effective yet. I'm leaving this matter with a strong suspicion that you have a legitimate gripe, but as I said, since this matter is no longer relevant for a variety of reasons, and since violence, cults, and theology are all turn offs for me, I won't be making the effort to find out just what that was, or which of your claims are accurate ans which were distorted or had significant omissions.

The Preamble is about the purpose of the government that was being formed by the Constitution, which was written in the name of "We the people" to serve the people. Where is the confusion coming from for you?

"They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." - Benjamin Franklin
<quoted text>
And who in America is telling others how they should live their lives? Who are these nannies?
Who is telling whom who they can have sex under the desk with, and judging others as immoral for not obeying his Christan ethics?
Who judges people that want to use illicit drugs criminals and lumps them in with welfare frauds?
Who approves of Big Brother reading his emails?
<quoted text>
Is that right? I outlined my vision for government, which is much, much, MUCH smaller, cheaper, and less intrusive than yours.
Try thinking rather than just repeating talking points you've heard. They're simply wrong.
<quoted text>
This is so frigging depressing to read. You have been captured 100%. And they have generated tens of millions just like you. I leave you to YOUR utopian vision of surveillance, military and police. Good luck
Huh...

I think you and I aren't on the same page here.

I think we're reading the same book, though.

Perhaps I misjudged you and the nanny state thing...

My pleasure. And kudos for bothering to do so.
Would you agree that hanging out with us "liberal elites" and reading what we have to say has been of some value to you?
I suspect that before Topix, which brings an unusual mix of people together, that you weren't exposed to a lot of things that you have found interesting and useful. The same applies for me with regard to prolonged and in depth exposure to the faithful.
I would have to agree with that.

I've learned quite a few things in my addiction here.

Not all things I agree with, but knowledge nonetheless.

Clinton made it our business when he took it into the people's house.
Disagree. The White House was Clinton's home that year. I don't know if that includes the Oral Office (sic) or not, but if not, I suggest that we people have all rooms of the White House that are NOT considered residential monitored by us people. I'll bet presidents even jerk off in our bathrooms.

Also when he violated federal statutes in the aftermath.
I'm less than convinced that you care about presidents violating federal statutes than you are about impugning Democratic presidents.

Small potatoes.
"Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet more than 45 million Americans still smoke cigarettes. As of 2010, there were also 13.2 million cigar smokers in the US, and 2.2 million who smoke tobacco in pipes.
"Society pays and so do you. The burden of death, disease and disability by the use of tobacco products doesn't just lie with the smoker, but with society as well. Tobacco related health costs and productivity losses in the US:$193 billion
How are you doing with your smoking, Dave? Do you mind being a burden on society?
Tobacco is legal.

Just sayin.

Interesting.
You make a great deal of "God" not being in the Constitution.
Now you mention "separation of church and state" as important.
Would you point to that in the Constitution for me, Pig Balls?
...Just checking your consistency. I'm sure you understand.
Religions asking atheists for consistency!
