    Ah gawsh. When the youngsters start saying youngster, it's probably time to put me out to pasture. lolol. I keep forgetting that we've watched people basically grow up under the tent for the past 30 years or so. But that's a good thing, I suppose. You guys would've had fun in the 80s when a feller had to pound pavement the old fashioned way. No Internet, no smart phones, no nothing. Instant activism was unheard of. Only radio and newspapers and if your letter got through to the editor and printed, it was a small victory. Billboards were the memes of the day. lolol.

    But there would be a State none the less. Economic security requires a coercive force. As a consequence, any system which depends upon coercive force to achieve economic security demands servitude. This is fundamental. Another thing, Pierz, respectfully speaking. This is just a little tip for functionally debating, since I've noticed that you try to do this quite a bit in order to sell your ism. And it's not just you, this happens every time we debate trustees of this particular ism. You cannot reframe the question or the terms of the whole of the debate in order to omit your ism's shortcomings. At least, not honestly. You will get busted and called out on it every single time. At least, on this forum. Every single time. Simple ignorance, of course, is an entirely different matter. We'll try to help one to understand the shortcomings of voluntary socialism if one is willing to objectively hear them so as to make an informed choice toward a functional understanding of the workings of culture, government, proper man-to-man/government-to-man relations, etc.

    Aw, geez. Why'd you have to quote me, of all people on this thread? Hm? Why? I left the thread. Firstly, I advocate for small government. Meaning that the government has one and only one role. Which is to protect Individual Liberty. That isn't possible in what is being offered in this thread. What is being offered in this thread is the question of replacing one State with another State. And in the replacement State (A Democracy in this case), the Individual and any group of Individuals has no protection against the Majority. None. In a Democracy there is no mechanism to protect the rights of The One to the right to his rights against the unchecked power of the Majority. Secondly, I'm intellectually honest enough to know that anarchy and capitalism do not mix. They are patently contrary to one another in fundamental principle. I'm smart enough to understand that economic security is not possible without a coercive force.

    Well. Collectivist mindsets do tend to view humans as members of groups rather than as individuals. I know vegans who just mind their own business and don't bother anybody.

    Legislature goes through so many processes and handlers and writings and amending if you wanted to list the author of every little piece, you could have several people writing a single paragraph- changing this word or two here or there- it would be incredibly complex and difficult to credit everything. A bill may change just a few words in one paragraph of a single law or a few words here and there. "the word "The" in this paragraph has been brought to you by Bounty Towels!"

    40,000 reflects people who are registered to vote in more than one state. If you moved to a new state and registered to vote there and did not inform the state you moved from that you left you are probably listed as eligible to vote in both states. Does this mean you voted in both states? There is potentially that many fraudulent votes, but the likelyhood that 40,000 fraudulent votes were actually cast? "I love voting so much! Let's wait in line here and then drive a couple hours to another state so we can wait in line and vote there too! Can't we go, honey?"

    Korea isn't claiming any test- and they like to brag when they have one. The quake is smaller than any of their nuclear tests resulted in. Possibilities? An actual earthquake. A failed hydrogen bomb test (a hydrogen bomb uses smaller synchronized explosions to rapidly compress the nuclear fuel to achieve their higher yield than a conventional nuclear weapon- perhaps the primary explosion occurred but not enough to achieve fusion). A collapse of ground in the space created by previous underground nuclear tests.

    Perhaps you should read some history- the US had a government controlled monetary system until 1913. Do I think this is the best way to handle it? No. But it's still in step with the first 120 years of American government.

    When I owned my printing company I was audited. When an entity sends in an agent to do an audit they purposely send in someone that has no expertise in your particular business. This person then says you owe this exorbitant amount of tax. It is then up to you the business person to hire your own tax professional and research every particular issue and show the agent why your particular business is exempt from that particular tax. They send in a person that doesn't know the exemptions to inflate the tax owed. Another trick is they do a sample audit of a particular time period. There could be one time situations that happened in that period. Then they determine the tax in that period was x. Then they apply that to the entire time period leaving you with an overwhelming debt. Once again up to you to prove that you don't owe the tax.

    Still alive after a couple of weeks of eating canned meat. Found a water well with water in it. Water is only a little over 20 feet down the hole and about 12 feet deep. The well is encased in a 2' diameter cement prefabricated, stackable style column. I put a Harbor Freight shallow well pump with a check valve. After getting the pump primed I was able to get some water out. Problem is the pump reaches its maximum then won't pump any more water out. I can only pump about three feet of the water about 70 gallons from the well. I am heading back there tomorrow for a couple of months. I have a submersible pump and tank I am going to hook up. I know the well produces. The area I am in is purported to be in an 11year drought and the well still has water. After pumping out 3 feet, the well refills in about half a day. My new neighbor, a nice 70 year old guy that has a farm in PA says he has drilled many wells. He says the longer a well sits the less it produces. He says that if I pump out a substantial amount of water from the well repeatedly the veins that supply the water will once again open up and refill the well faster. Considering that 70 gallons is only 1/4 of the water in the well, there is more than enough for me to get water and probably more than enough for the house. This is obviously an old school well and not a 300 foot drilled well but it is water! I plan to put a 10" canister style cartridge filter after the tank, and another small canister filter at point of use. The small filter I use to use under sinks on the cold water side. That cartridge is rated at removing everything as small as .1 Micron. That is right not 10 micron but .1 micron. I figure at first I will run the well and let it produce onto the ground for a few days without running it dry before putting any cartridges into any of the filters. The house is very appealing from the outside and is big but needs lots of work! All the first floor floors and joists are rotted and need replaced. I tore up all the carpet and rolled it up and put it off to the side. The kitchen first had hardwood floors that got bad so somebody put a layer of OSB and tile over it and then when that went bad they put another layer of OSB and carpet over that. After pulling up the carpet, I had rotten OSB. The 6x6 beams the house sits on are also bad in places. I plan to support the carrying walls from the ground to the ceilings. I will pour footings and put in concrete block piers. I plan to snap lines and cut the wall studs higher up and replace the 6x6 beams with tripple 2x12 and attach a new 2x6 to the bottom of the wall studs. After laying plastic on the crawlspace I will then put 2x8 floor joist attached to the top of the new 2x12 beams thus raising the floor. The house has rough sawn lumber sheeting both on the interior and exterior of all studs even interior walls and is still very plumb. They have wood paneling on all interior walls on top of original "Beaver Board." The original ceilings were over 9 feet from the floor and were also rough sawn wood covered with Beaver Board. In most rooms someone dropped the ceilings and put in drywall. When they did that they ran wiring for outlets, HVAC in the ceilings and then blew in 12" of insulation between the Beaver Board and the new drywall dropped ceiling. All that is going to be removed. Even when I raise my first floor I will have tall ceilings. The house has approximately 1600 square feet on the first floor and has the ability to have over 1000 square feet upstairs. When it was built 1923 I think, they never had living space on second floor. There are no stairs to get up there. The first floor ceiling joists/second floor floor joists are not adequate to support living space and will also need to be replaced. A large decorative dormer sits across much of the front of the house. The height to the peak of the roof is more than 13 feet from the second floor floor joists. I will plan to put in floor joists and support...

    Is that in 1775 prices? Silver was about $1.30 around then so 4.6 million ounces or 143 metric tons! It is about $17 an ounce today. 23,000 ounces at 1800 prices-about three quarters of a tonne. Image didn't print figures. Giant cube is 1,000 tonnes. The lady is sitting on 100 tonnes so about 1.5 times that. Block next to guy is 10 tonnes- 15 of those. Cubes and spheres are one tonne.

    Please stop posting in my threads. Ok? you arent an libertarian since that is the case here just what are you doing here then? in fact if you truly support Ron Paul's movement just what have you done since 2008?

    In one of the threads that i had posted on Dec 3 you desperately tried on defending the Ukrainian opposition while as i pointed on the thread how your beloved Ukrainian opposition are nothing more then a bunch of parties with a history of having Nazism Ideology. This is not your first time, you also defended the Syrian Rebels and what for again?

    I lived in Europe you haven't. I have family in Europe do you? doubtfully. Before you can claim that the EU is more freer ok then why dont you go there and stay there in the EU for a couple months and see if you can find a job?

    I did. I honestly think it best to have a gentlemen's agreement to just stay away from eachother. I appreciate the fact that you believe in what you are doing, there's no way you would be posting so much if you didn't. I also believe in what I am doing. Start new threads linking to and countering my threads if you want. I will stay out of them. Sound like a good solution?

    Please stop posting in my threads. We will never agree on anything. I do not care what you do in other people's threads. Please leave my threads alone. I won't ever even mention your name or reply to any of your posts, just please stay out of the threads I start. They make up less than 1% of the threads started here. You have plenty of other threads to occupy your time.
