  1. The Second Amendment was Ratified to Preserve Slavery - Rebuttal I noticed the thread concerning the article ( http://truth-out.org/news/item/13890...eserve-slavery ) referencing the law journal article by Carl Bogus was locked. However, since that article is getting lots of eyeballs around the web, I thought I'd post a rebuttal... Here's the original law journal article (1998): http://www.saf.org/lawreviews/bogus2.htm This is a rebuttal: http://lawreview.byu.edu/archives/1998/4/kop.pdf (scroll down to p. 1522) There is so much that is misleading in that law journal article. One example, after reading III. THE MYTH OF AN INSURRECTIONIST RIGHT from the Bogus article, compare it to the first section here: http://www.guncite.com/gc2ndcont.html Incidentally here are some the the author's previous affiliations: VIOLENCE POLICY CENTER, Washington, DC National Advisory Panel, 1993-Present. HANDGUN CONTROL, INC., Washington, DC Board of Gov., 1992-93, Board of Directors, 1987-89. THE CENTER TO PREVENT HANDGUN VIOLENCE, Washington, DC Board of Directors, 1989-92. http://www.law.gwu.edu/SiteCollectio...Carl_Bogus.pdf Funny how this article: http://truth-out.org/news/item/13890...eserve-slavery fails to mention those affiliations. If some law journal article was penned by a former NRA board member, I think it'd be a different story.
  2. You know, I think it was the State Theater, so maybe it was 1973. Either way...he was and still is awesome. I saw him at the Guthrie a couple of years ago, and he is as great as ever.
  3. I was there, too, Moose. I'll never forget it. Absolutely awesome.
  4. So have unions caused the loss of jobs in America or could it be something else? Facts about outsourcing - http://www.americanp...as-outsourcing/ Do unions spend more on lobbying than corporations? Top 20 PACS- http://www.opensecre...le=2012&party=A Top Super PACS - http://www.opensecre....php?cycle=2012 Top Lobbying spenders - http://www.opensecre...php?indexType=s Maybe part of the answer is here? Defense spending by nations - http://www.globalfir...ding-budget.asp Really… what president has spent the most? Which president has spent the most - http://www.policymic...tory-yes-and-no American’s pay fewer taxes presently than in the 1980’s so why then has not the economy turned around, if lower taxes and job growth correlated to each other? http://www.alternet....or-get-no-break http://seattletimes....taxworld12.html Americas race to the bottom http://www.consortiu...11/030311a.html http://www.regressiveantidote.net/Articles/America's_Race_To_The_Bottom.html And the Unions are so powerful they had the resources to stop all the above.
  5. Do Illegal Immigrants Pay Taxes? February 28, 2011 Illegal immigrants pay into Social Security via automatic payroll deductions, but they can never claim Social Security benefits because they are here illegally and because their Social Security numbers are fake. It’s estimated that undocumented immigrants pay about $7 billion per year in Social Security taxes that they will never be able to reclaim. http://roygermano.wo...ants-pay-taxes/ http://usliberals.ab...legalImmi_4.htm Illegal immigrants on welfare: fact or fiction? It’s actually a myth, according to the Congressional Research Service, the investigative arm of Congress. This point is highlighted as one of the “top five immigration myths of the campaign season,” a list put out by the American Immigration Lawyers Association. http://blog.chron.co...act-or-fiction/

  7. By:Mark Roberts from World TradeCenter Building 7 and the Lies of the 9/11 “Truth Movement” I recently kept track of NY911 truth’s statements at Ground Zero over a 3 ½ hour period. During that time I didn’t hear any of the 10 of them make a single true claim to the public. Recently they spent an hour arguing with an Air Force morgue technician who processed the remains from the Pentagon. Remember, this group claims that there were no remains of flight 77 passengers at the Pentagon, because that plane never crashed there. It takes a special kind of person to make that argument to the face of someone who personally handled those charred remains. Abby Scott and Ray Rivera made a funny video based on some of the seen counters, which captures a bit of the lunacy of the “Truthers:” http://tinyurl.com/jrhk8. When I’m around the Truthers I often have the refrain of the old song “She’s More to be Pitied Than Censured” running around in my head: She is more to be pitied than censured, She is more to be helped than despised. She is only a lassie who ventured On life's stormy path, ill-advised. Then I snap out of it and remember that these people give absolution to terrorists while accusing innocent people of mass murder, all without a shred of evidence. And they do this at Ground Zero.They are the most delusional people I have ever met, and their delusions are dangerous. http://www.911myths....itiqueMay06.pdf http://www.jod911.com/ - Peer-Reviewed Papers
  8. Ok..we agree on a couple of ideas and this is one of them. It is called "Friendly Fascism"...
  9. That was good. What happens if you are correct? At my age I would die of a heart attack...hate getting my hopes up. Oh well back to the ginseng garden.
  10. Abraham Lincoln also stated, “The ballot is stronger than the bullet”. You will find, The Declaration ofIndependence, Bill of Rights, The U.S. Constitution, Amendments to the Constitution,The Federalist Papers and Anti-federalist papers here: http://www.foundingf...rs/fedindex.htm The part we are talking about is in: The Declaration of Independence,which starts: “WHEN in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation”. (This pertains to the U.S. separation from England)….“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government,and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patien tsufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, al lhaving in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world”. To Prove, The Declaration of Independence, the Founding Fathers had to announce it “to a candid world”. Our founding father while writing the Constitution wrote papers called, The Federalist Papers,written and published in newspapers explaining the reasons for New York State voters to ratify the Constitution. Federalist Paper 9 and 10 fully explains the process for: The Union as a Safeguard against Domestic Faction and Insurrection. Federalist paper 10 is one of the most studied of the Federalist Papers. Our courts still reference the federalist papers for clarification and meaning of the Constitution. Sorry for that…my fault. I should have explained the context of Lincoln’s quote better.
  11. Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world. Abraham Lincoln I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth,they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts. Abraham Lincoln These capitalists generally act harmoniously and inconcert, to fleece the people. Abraham Lincoln Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren't very new at all. Abraham Lincoln
  12. Yes; and it was a very sad day for Americans when the Patriot Act passed. I am a Ron Paul supporter. So to set a judgement upon one for Ideas on a different subject is not a wise thing to do. Have you read Noam Chomsky yet? If one reads Chomsky does that mean that reader fully believes in all of what Chomsky advocates? Certainly not...when one wants to understand an opponent's point of view it is a good idea to read their opposing view. Like Patton read Rommel’s books on warfare to better understand what ons is up against. So does that make Patton aNazi?
  13. If it matters coming from an old man… keep you are good at argumentative writing, entertaining in style, well studied and highly intelligent. But most of all your defensive of the truth is inspiring. Makes old man laugh. I hope all your dreams come true and with the different styles of writing I see you use I can tell you will be a good father.
  14. You probably its still think Bush's fault weare heading into another recession, don't you? Well that is a well written sentence. No; the recession is multi-faceted in nature and whose fault it is very complex to pin the fault on anyone person. Oh, let's see, you understand your"constitutional" rights too. Ok, is this a question or statement? Hmm...maybe trick question? We have no constitutional rights. When did that happen? Enlighten me please. You would rather bash anyone that challengesyour fantasy world of honest government, ethical politicians, and the bo is themessiah message. I do believe I never said that governments or any government are always honest or ethical. But this sentence above also needs a little work. I do not call it bashing how can I say this?…to provisional. Argumentative is better. And to think, of thousands of military puttheir lives on the line every day just so you can drink your koolaid. Well this really got me thinking, how anyone can make an assumption about my respect for the military by me having different ideas other than your own. You probably also believethe KKK is from the right, and don't accept they were formed by the dems. Well…I will be gosh darn on that there sentence…you fooled me <br style="mso-special-character: line-break;"><br style="mso-special-character: line-break;"> I am 56 years old and do not have much time to mature.
  15. I am very very sorry sirus I did not fully understand until this post of yours that you are that bad off; mentally I mean... and no pill will fix what you have. I am sorry. chas32
