    I never heard that red velvet cake was a black thing. It is good though. True story. I grew up eating watermelon, including what we grew in the garden from saving and replanting seeds. (Nothing like growing your own food). All was fine until I went to a mostly white Christian boarding academy with it's fair share of racists. I'm not counting everyone who wore a confederate flag (that was half the school). I'm talking about people like the kid with the KKK cartoon on his dorm wall. (Klansman coming out of a flying saucer headed towards a black man picking a watermelon). From that and some comments another white kid made about me liking watermelon while he was eating his watermelon traumatized me to the point of where I didn't eat watermelon for a while even at home. (I wonder Anti Federalist if some of my descendants won't eat watermelon because of a genetic memory of the trauma? :D). Anyhow, this lasted for years even into college until a saw a black comedian doing a bit about how he hated white people stereotyping him and he ended the sketch with "And I walked out of the store with my watermelon." And I was like "Screw it! I shouldn't not enjoy something just because someone else, who might actually secretly enjoy it too, wants to make some racial comment about me enjoying it!" Oh, and here's how I came to terms about the whole confederate flag thing. Most of the time I just ignored it. There was one white girl at the school that came on to me. I seriously considered dating her until one day when a visiting concert band from up north played "The Battle Hymn Of The Republic", her and her roommate went back and got their confederate flag. (Odd because her roommate was from Alaska and how much more northern can you get?) She talked to me later and was like "I don't know why they were offended. It's just a confederate flag." I was like "Ummmm....okay." And then I lost interest. My other confederate flag experience in academy was when I was coding in the computer lab (probably improving a game I wrote), another student was using a computer to draw a swastika. I was like "Why the hell are you doing that?" He was like "I'm full blood German and this is part of my German heritage." I started to say something and then I was like "Drake, you fool! You give these white southerners a pass based on it's their southern heritage. The Nazis were terrible to the Jews but they didn't enslave Africans." (True fact. Hitler treated captured African American POWs and officers better than the U.S. Army by not segregating based on race. And there is the story of the African prince who's mother was German who grew up in Germany during WW 2 and was never persecuted in any way but was disappointed to find out he wasn't allowed to join the Hitler Youth.) When visiting the Christian college this academy was affiliated with, I was offered a good bit in scholarship money because even though my GPA wasn't great (3.17 if I recall), I had the highest ACT of my class. (28 which isn't as good as one of my sons who got a 32, but I took it without any test prep as I thought it was really meant to simply show what you learned in high school). But I declined their offer and got an HBCU to match it. Why? On the college visit our buses were met with student in confederate uniforms and antebellum dresses passing out confederate and U.S. flags. Petty? Maybe. I'm not going to tell other people how to live but I don't have to subject myself to everything either. (Much longer story than I meant that to be.)

    More dishonest deflection from you. I'M NOT FVCKING TALKING ABOUT TRUMP! So take Trump OUT of the equation! If someone other than Trump (A president Rand Paul in 2029 for example) persuaded congress to pass replacing the income tax with tariffs on imports, do you think that would be a workable idea? Why or why not?

    Then it would be more leftist hypocrisy, because leftists are just as into celebrity worship (and "we just have to put the right guy in charge" as "policy") as you two are. I wasn't talking about "people", I was talking about dannno. And I wasn't talking about why anyone would be interested in the case, I was wondering why he seems completely disinterested in the case and interested only in what's running around the bloodstream of some random internet stranger. How did I fail to make that obvious? Or do you just never read what triggers you, the way leftists get triggered by things they can't comprehend?

    You're just all over the soap opera like a cheap suit. But when it comes to the things that matter... Why do the people who care more if famous people are having spats with their significant others than if their neighbor has enough to eat always go for Trump?

    He wants the same Carthaginian peace that Netanyahu wants. You have a record in office which shows he didn't get one single war shut down before his term ended, which you have to make lame excuses for constantly.

    Yeah. I mentioned no fault divorce....given to us by "conservative" Ronald Reagan who basically wanted one for himself. Oh and he was an early proponent of gun control too. Reminds me of another more recent "conservative" president...but I digress.

    :rolleyes: I'm talking about specifically regarding the break up of the family. You're welcome to jump into the stream of a conversation but not welcome to change the subject. Please address what's actually being discussed at the moment thank you very much. Edit: And please understand that the words immigration and integration are not the same thing. Consult a dictionary if necessary. For a further reference see: https://www.vox.com/2015/3/18/8237299/irish-crime-1850s Americans can look back to the Irish immigrants of the 1850s to see that criminal justice disparities are very often a symptom of vast socioeconomic disparities, not traits inherent to a certain group of people.

    Well I have a son who's become acclimatized to Chicago. Okay. But I thought the point of the 3 hour Tucker interview that I haven't watched yet is that the problem with the Civil Rights Movement is that it got people thinking collectively? I'm seriously confused as to what your position is. :confused: Did you watch the Joe Rogan interview I posted about Sparta? Just curious.

    So....you're not going to answer my question and you're going to change the subject. Whether Trump can be trusted to implement replacing the income tax with tariffs is a completely different point than what it could work at all.

    No offense, but your winter doesn't look that appealing to me. :) I'll listen to it sometime when I have a 3 hour drive by myself. But this begs the question. Isn't this entire thread collectively viewing people? I'm seriously stunned by the genetic trauma argument coming from you as that is the kind of argument I would be expecting from a critical race theorist. If Pat Buchannan endorsed that view that's even more shocking. This reminds me of a song.

    I referenced Romans chapter 1 and 1st Corinthians 6:9, which condemn homosexuality and effiminate men.

    Are you saying those verses aren't in the Bible? How was what I said "non biblical"?

    Yeah, the guy was digging himself deeper and deeper. The first post with his use of bitch and cunt made the point, but he kept on going and going, indicating to me deeper issues than the obvious. Whatever.

    As for obvious intentions, yeah, I'm on board with that. Thanks for the clarity. I didn't think your head rolled like that. He was baiting anyone to be insulted so he could go, "See?! Not so much fun when YOU'RE the one... hypocrite!" To go through that much gyration to attempt to elicit a response tells me he ain't getting laid at all. Little wonder, too, I would think. Yick. That sort of chronic bitter anger is not very attractive... at least not to me.

    Hope you slept well.

I don't mind immigration at all, but when they are coming to leech off the failed system; that pisses the hell out of me. Get across the border, and never have to work again. Take me somewhere like that !!!!
You are somewhere like that, as the forums have mentioned repeatedly. Isn't this the place where it has been said over and over that it is more profitable to leech off the Government than to try to work and make something of yourself? The majority of people doing that were not

The Liberty Tree

by MelissaWV on 04-05-2012 at 07:50 PM
Once upon a time, there was a land called Ron Paul Forums. There was no "Liberty Forest" yet; the entire thing was a seedling, sprouting up in a bad neighborhood called the Internet. Surrounded by pornography, cute kitten photos, and videos that people mostly created by aiming a camera at their television, a website grew a little bigger.

I came to RPFs out of anger. At the time, I had my own Ron-related venture, or at least a stake in it. As VTV and DrSteveParent and
