    Firstly, it's 4:13 AM, wife's snoozing, so I've not watched the video. Regardless, my question stands as a general query: whom do we trust to speak on such matters and how do we judge such worthiness? The Brits are devils of the lowest sort; penultimate global muck rakers for centuries. I don't trust them to the end of my nose, given their long and checkered history of deceit and other chicanery. This ex-ambassador may be speaking truthfully, but how do we decide to trust him or anyone else for that matter where such topics are concerned? Given how many false actors are out there - those who have been put up to the task of bending or breaking truth for whatever the reasons, I have difficulty in trusting anyone making statements about political reality. We live in a world of smoke and mirrors mixed with truth. It is a morass the sorting out of which I must admit my abridged capacities.

    Actually, I was talking about Starbucks' situation now. If they apologize they lose; if they don't apologize they lose. There is no way to fix this w/o a lot of backstabbing/name-calling/lies/innuendoes coming from either side, depending on how it's handled. Someone will always strive to be offended. My personal experience with Starbucks has always been good- a performing group I was in as a kid performed there a lot & we were always treated well- and we were a mixture of races.

    The answer is get the gov out of EVERYTHING. This will take quite a bit of education on real freedom for indoctrinated minds. They do not understand that: -Huge medical bills are because gov is involved; government supports the Insurance/Drug cartels, which raises medical bills into the next universe. -Charity should be local, not national. This helps people raise themselves out of the mire. -Throw out all the insane regulations and get the gov out of business.

    1991, George HW Bush marches into Eye-rack. Clinton maintains US presence. GW Bush invades a second time, ostensibly to finish the job. Obama pledges how he would have us out by June of his first year, but never gets us out, though he lied and said we were. Trump seems to be ready to maintain our presence in this string of seemingly ridiculous entanglements. Democrat or Republican - it has made no difference. So why then have we remained in these ruinous endeavors for 27 years to date with such perfect consistency, despite the purported deep philosophical rift between Rs and Ds? I don't think any of this is in the hands of either side. There is something far deeper at work here. If Theye could make a creep like Obama so brazenly break his biggest campaign promise, perhaps they have something on Trump as well. The presidents in question were marketed as widely variant in terms of their personalities and world views. If this is actually true, how is it that we have had twenty seven years of such perfectly consistent circumstance where our engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan are concerned?

    So much freedom- we can put you in jail for victimless crimes but you have no voice in it. This is the same logic that will support an 18 year old joining the military but won't allow them to drink. If people are going to be punished as adults then they should also have voting rights. And- if the gov was out of the school system maybe we could stop the ridiculous stuff that keeps teens babies and then demands they "grow up" immediately at 18. And, NO, I'm not in favor of 16 yr old know-nothings voting, but saying the two things aren't connected is not looking at the real picture.

    Not exactly AF- men were actually the first to wear many things that are now considered "feminine"- such as: Makeup Wigs High Heels Fancy jewelry & especially pierced ears. These only became "feminine" when men got tired of them & moved into different fashions. Then the women took over. ;) (Of course, pierced ears were always masculine as it was a sign that a sailor had actually crossed the equator.)

    I'm not supporting Turkey or Erdoğan but the Gatestone Institute is basically a Muslim-hate site. Most everything we read about the history of the Ottoman Empire is very imbalanced and not close to truth. At one time the Ottoman Empire was the greatest and most civilized on earth- think of America in it's prime. The Emperor Suleyman was considered one of the greatest leaders in history; he was also extremely cultured & artistic. The Ottomans never went through the "Dark Ages". That was a European experience. Also: jihad means a personal inner conflict to better oneself- the arabic word for war is: "al-harb". Jihad is NOT war against other religions. The Koran specifically refers to Jews and Christians as "people of the book" who should be protected and respected. Did the Ottoman's degenerate? Of course- think of the US's path in today's world.

    Here's Helmuth again, sputtering utter bullshit. First of all most people can't even recognize a Pit. Many "attacks" that have been blamed on Pits were a totally different breed. I had a Shar-pei/Lab mix doggie that everyone thought was a Pit. Pits were trained a few centuries ago for fighting but so were a lot of other breeds- Pits just get a bad rap nowadays because people are ignorant. http://love-a-bull.org/resources/the-history-of-pit-bulls/

    You're the one rewriting history. The Irish were hated because a) they were Catholic, and b) because they were not considered white. In his book The Renegade History of the United States, Thaddeus Russell explains that the first large wave of Irish immigrants worked low-paying jobs—mostly building the canals along the Canadian border—that other Americans wouldn’t do. Like finding out a song you thought was new is actually a 100-year-old remake, the Irish were simultaneously accused of stealing all the good jobs and branded as “lazy” and “shiftless.” They were also thought to be the nonwhite “missing link” between the superior European and the savage African based on stereotypes from the early American media, according to the Boston Globe: In the popular press, the Irish were depicted as subhuman. They were carriers of disease. They were drawn as lazy, clannish, unclean, drunken brawlers who wallowed in crime and bred like rats. Most disturbingly, the Irish were Roman Catholics coming to an overwhelmingly Protestant nation and their devotion to the pope made their allegiance to the United States suspect. In 1798, Congress passed three “Alien Acts” based mainly on fears of Irish-Catholic, anti-immigrant sentiment. These new laws gave the president the power to stop immigration from any country at war with the U.S. and the right to deport any immigrant, and made it harder for immigrants to vote. Then, again in the late 1840s, a nationalist political group called the Know-Nothings sprang from a populist movement of poor whites who were dissatisfied with the two-party system and started the American Party, intent on preserving America’s culture by restricting immigration, especially from Catholic countries—including by Irish Catholics.

    I typed too soon. I must agree with you - he decidedly did not err in this case, but Putin did. I discussed this with little bro. Apparently all of the ordnance detonated at once. This was a message to China: "Behold what we can do. Tread ye with utmost care." In law there are the notions of general and specific deterrents. This action served both roles. Specifically, the destruction of Syria's ability to produce, test, and field chemical and other weapons of similar class. Also, this action was Obama's doing, something of which I was unaware. Trump was bound by an agreement Obama made with the UN, pledging that the USA would respond it this or that manner where chemical weapons have been used. This was a situation where the world looks to see whether America has the oats to do as it pledged, or is just a paper tiger. I jumped to a premature conclusion. My error.

    Well, it's difficult to know he truth in all these matters, but so far as my old eyes can tell, Trump has fucked up this time and in a big way. Question now is how will he proceed. If he is genuine, he will repair. Otherwise, he will maintain as he has chosen and will prove himself as I feared he likely would. If he proves just another one of Themme, then we the people are lost and will find no salvation without arms. Anyone thinking this will be fixed with politics is fooling themselves. America is gone. Time is here. I'm going to the Capitol, armed, to be counted. What will the rest of you do?

    Putin has been quoted as saying he will fire upon ANYONE doing to on Syria. Britain and France would be the least of my worries. Russia would likely sink them without breaking a sweat. The US Navy... another story.

Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
