Written By Mary Starrett

In 1934, a French mathematician concluded that bees should not be able to fly. After all, he reasoned, their small wing-to-body-size ratio showed they simply should not be able to pull off lift off. His empirical data showed that bees did not have what it takes to do what they did and had done for millennia.

Glad the bees paid no mind to Frenchy, because they might have taken the math whiz’s conclusion to heart and grounded themselves. After all, when all the calculations were in, the ‘facts’ showed bees can’t fly.

Global warming can proven very easily. Set fire to your house & climb on the roof. If it doesn't get hot, there is no such thing as global warming. But you stay there as long as it takes.

At this point any 3rd party isn't a bee - it's a rock.

"While the United States purports to be the guardian of free and fair elections the world over, here at home our elections system is utterly corrupted. From casting to counting to reporting of election results, the fix is in and we’ve allowed it to happen."---Marry Staret
I had perused the link and I have added in my book mark collection.

I prefer no parties myself, but have to work within the system we have to try to enact the change needed in this country.

No Parties, each man that seekes the office does so on his eligibility and the things he stands for laid out for the public to decide fairly and openly who should be president.

Third parties will work the minute two things occur. They stop attracting kooks and they understand it really is all about what is attracted since vast amounts of what is attracted is needed to make anything happen.

Now we see why you are such an Obama fan.

You think you are better than people who hold this country as honorable and the Constitution as sacred.

You don't believe that anyone that thinks those things are in their right mind.

Try to keep in mind. Obama only received 1/3 of the eligible votes in this country. And he only beat McCain by 5-6 million votes. That's less than 2% of the overall population. Hardly a mandate.

The number of people that are sick and tired of BOTH parties is growing, and they are coming to us. These people come from every walk of life; blue collar, white collar, nurses and doctors, secretaries and lawyers, soccer moms and teachers.

People like you that call them kooks, just show how stupid you really are.

I have absolutely no need or desire to pull a superiority head trip with you. That people do that here is a sad joke on them because it really doesn't matter and it especially doesn't matter here.

Turn off that assumption machine for a minute and listen to what I am saying please.

What I am referring to is how the parties and the candidates both cater to an extreme view too much. It is self defeating. Let's repeat that so you don't miss it: it is self defeating.

And you exacerbate it by not acknowledging it when that aspect is pointed out, too. Frequently what you just did here with me is exactly what is done -- you make the other person wrong on assumption without considering the facts. And then you expect others who watch that go down to be attracted to your party? That is some serious junko logic, ergo kook stuff.

If all those people you mentioned in your party are honorable Americans, then so are those who are not in your party who have different views. Sound more like that and more of those outsiders may get interesting in your party. Or remain a small, fringe group with extreme views that look kooky to others. Your choice. Just don't blame that on me.

In the meantime there are roughly 73 million Democrats, 55 million Republicans and 42 million who are not especially interested in a party. I would be one of the 42 million Why should I be interested in your party when you can't even get my views correct?

Let's see....

Could it be because you support a man that has some highly questionable associates and they keep popping up?

Could it be because you support a man that has an established liberal record, one of the most liberal, and his campaign promises are proving to be nothing but more political fluff?

Yet - you claim not to be liberal, not to support socialism, not to support this and that, yet will defend the politicians and actions of those that do push those things.

The views of the American Patriot Party (.cc) are not extreme in anyway. We just want our government back to be guided by the Constitution as it is supposed to be, to have the dictates of that Constitution enforced, and the Constitutional laws of this country enforced.

We simply want each branch of the government to stick to its duties and those duties period. The Judicial branch needs to simply apply the laws and do so with a blind eye as to who sits in front of them, not to be making law. The Legislative branch needs to stick to creating laws, not trying to run the country or set forign policy and such. And the Executive Branch needs to get out of the other two branches and simply get to the job of administrating this country and managing our foreign affairs.

What so damn radical and extreme about that!

When this sentence of yours here ends in a question mark instead of an exclamation mark, we can discuss it further. In the meantime, you simply listed even more of my views that you get wrong and so you pushed me even harder away from your party. I will assume for now that you must like your party small and ineffective, even if you don't come right out and say so. Actions speak loud enough.

Typical response from you.

I have been reading your stuff for a few months now - what I stated of your views is dead on, despite your attempts now to back away from them since Obama is showing to be a typical Democrat politician and not the agent of change you and the others declared he would be.

I do notice the only thing you actually read was my last line, but do nothing to address the actually substance of our stance.

This goes to show again your pitifulness in trying to show any American with a free thinking mind and desire to have our country return to a Constitutional Republic we were founded to be a radical and loon.

You have no real argument here, which is why all you can do is put me and my party down without sunstance behind the put downs, and make inane remarks as to my using an apostrophe or a question mark.

I think I know my views better than you, dear. But you can keep telling yourself that you know a stranger better than the stranger does herself and wonder why that hits some folks as kooksville, all while your party remains too small to make much impact. That would be my only point. Which is why I said what I said to begin with. Third parties = too much kook stuff in the mix = small. That is how it works, like it or not.

LMAO - ok - whatever. You and your little friends keep on thinking that. Our numbers grew quite a bit after Obama was elected, and I continue to get a number of inquiries from both Democrats and Republicans fed up with their parties and with Washington as a whole.

Our day is coming, and I think the next four years will help our cause more than any other time.

I have no idea what little friends you think I have -- I am not a member of any party, remember? lol Clearly we will both have to see how it pans out for your party. Good luck, Michael.
