    The counter-argument for this is going to be something along the lines of "but they paid into the system to get teh SSI disability/food stamps/WIC benefits/whatever". Just something to ponder. The oldsters play the same card whenever we point out the need for SS reform.

    If you think that is the best way to get things done and maximize liberty, run for President, I'll vote for you. Ron Paul spent a lot of time in congress being a principled voter and that is great, I'm glad he did it. But look at all the things Rand has accomplished by playing the game. Rand probably would not as successful if he used his father's blueprint, but he isn't his father, he is doing what he thinks is most effective and it is working quite well. Trump has different goals than both Ron and Rand, but there is a lot of overlap and he is working on the strategic play. If we had more liberty people in government, then Ron's purist strategy would probably do much better. I wish that were the case. The reason is because the liberty wing of government lacks political capital.

    Isn't the rest of what he said correct though? I mean, I disagree with the first sentence also, but the rest seems like bombing an empty airbase to gain political capital.

    I disagree with your first sentence, but everything else seems correct based on what others on this forum have said. If Trump gains political capital from doing essentially nothing, that is a win for him and his future endeavors. He is really good at doing that, for example when he bombed the empty airbase in Syria.

    Trump doesn't write the budget, he just signs it. If he doesn't sign it, he loses political capital in future endeavors. He has to allocate his political capital appropriately to maximize his goals. In the longrun, it doesn't matter that much what this year's budget is, or next year, we have been deficit spending for so long.. but if he can sign a slashed budget by the end of his term(s) then that would be a goal that would benefit us greatly.

    You're missing the entire point. Almost every day there is a thread that is made that is complaining about something that people think Trump or his admin is going to do, and it never happens. So I said, you never know what he is going to do - but what I also said, is that we have a pretty good clue about what his real intentions are by what he has done about something that he has completely discretion over, such as picking Federal Judges. He does not have that discretion with regards to many other things that have to go through congress or otherwise.

    If you think Trump secretly wants gun control and is secretly a liberal then maybe you can explain why he has been bringing in conservative constitutional federal judges, en masse, pretty much behind the scenes, when it has brought him little to no political leverage. This may have a bigger impact on the country in the longrun than a lot of the BS day to day stuff going on.

    If I went back and did a thorough search of the last 4 or 5 months, there would probably about 30 or 40 different instances of reports that Trump is going to do something that people make threads about and people complain about that never turn out to be true. Trump says things all the time that he doesn't mean.. BUT it is pretty easy to tell what side he is actually on. Trump has been appointing a LOT of federal judges who are conservative constitutionalists based on the advice of Judge Nap. He didn't have to do that, it gets him absolutely nowhere politically, apparently he did it for the good of the country. In other areas where he has less control over he has to be more strategic sometimes.

    Sometimes people do have bad behavior and a good motive. Nothing wrong with pointing that out. But here we don't even know what is going to happen, it's just another dog-pile on Trump because the MSM says so.

    I don't think so, although I'm kinda confused by what you just said, I'm pretty sure that it has no relevancy to his statement. Perhaps you should consider what the intended communication was supposed to be before judging it.

    The problem is that too many people go from religious worshiping God to non-religious worshiping the state. Although I wasn't sure 15 years ago, the first now seems preferable.

    Because all the stuff people are judged on in figure skating is subjective-they even get "artistic" points. Real sport is objective-you either scored or you didn't.

    The point of Exodus was that they ate Manna (which is angel's food) because we are made in God's and the angel's image. That being said, if we are made in God and the angel's image and no meat was involved, God would have just fed them for 40 years with angel's food--period. How can you say you know God's Original Design when you do not acknowledge a world age before this one and you do not acknowledge a six day creation? Therefore you do not acknowledge that God created the second man (Adam) to be a farmer which includes farming animals. As far a diseases go, there is no doubt that mankind has polluted this world. However, how many people follow the health Laws? I know a lot of people who think that they do not have to follow them because Jesus died on the cross and made all food clean now. That is simply not true. You have a right to be a vegetarian / vegan if that is what works for you. But to claim people are sick because they eat meat, is a bit disingenuous.

    Driving a 1972 Ford station wagon from Berlin to a Finnish ice-racing course I didn't visit Berlin just to get some excellent döner kebab, but it was part of why I boarded a plane in late January and landed at the Schönefeld airport south of the city. The other part had to do with an ice track weekend in Northern Finland, and a daily-driven 1972 Ford Country Sedan – 219 inches of blue station wagon imported to Germany from Ohio, affectionately called Lucille after her original owner. We were going to drive it all the way north, expensive gas and everything. How does 1,450 miles in one go sound? We were cautiously hopeful there would be no technical maladies, as during the past weeks the car had received a host of improvements. Lucille's owner had bolted on a brand new X-pipe exhaust setup with Hooker headers, making the big Cleveland with its Edelbrock Performer cam rumble and roar like a rude and happy beast. On Wednesday, we packed the wagon with necessary supplies, and our four-person crew headed out of town towards Warsaw. The plan was to drive all night long, until we would finally reach the ferry harbor in Tallinn before Thursday noon, then sleep on the ferry for a couple hours and again continue north. The trip started out smooth, with the autobahn dry, the ride comfortable, and the jokes bad. The engine upgrades, especially the Holley Sniper EFI, returned roughly 13.5 mpg – not bad at all from that 400 cubic inch engine! By European standards, that's incredibly thirsty, so we'd be stopping every 200-250 miles to buy some more of that reasonably-priced Eastern European fuel and swap drivers, giving our crew members a good chance to get some sleep in the comfy back seat after each one of us had completed their stint.

    Thank you. It seems like bullying. My settings have been changed so that I only receive messages from contacts (none) and staff. It's a shame. I rarely send PMs anyway, but it would be nice to have the option without going to a whole lot of work.

    Just to clarify:

    Is it not acceptable to theorize (based on the hundreds of years of history of Roman Catholic persecution) about who might be the victims of that persecution today? If not, then I won't do it. But just remember....Jews, Atheists, and Christians were all victims of this tyranny.
