ya, I personally don't have a problem executing extremely violent offenders, however, what happens when someone who maybe shouldn't really deserve to die, if the truth be known, but get's handed down a mean sentence by an aggressive judge, or worse yet, someone is setup by the justice system and convicted of a crime they didn't commit. Shouldn't there be a law in place to protect them?

As interesting as this topic is, I am getting tired and have to run to the store to take care of things that actually have an impact on my immediate future....namely having some milk tomorrow for breakfast....

Later guys....

Almond Milk is great, stores in pantry for months at a time, is healthy, and you can buy in 8-packs at Costco.

I'm not a single issue voter. But I start there. I guess you could say its my filter.
I just read a book about George Washington. How he knew we would face the problems we have today I have no idea but his writings and speeches were full of warnings about politicians that seek only to serve themselves, massive debt incurred in the buying of votes and political favors, etc....the list goes on and on......incredible.

I'm no Bible thumper but the good book has two basic principals that if people even tried to live them, most of the worlds ills would go away.

1. Love you neighbor as yourself.
2. Do unto others as you would them do to you.

I doubt anyone could argue convincingly against those principles.

Eisenhower in his farewell address warned of the military-industrial complex, but in his speech as it was originally written, it was the military-industrial-Congressional complex.

Those 2 Bible lines are sentiments in the New Testament I believe (not much of a Bible reader - though I do find it interesting that the only people the Bible says Jesus was actually physically violent against were the money-changers. You can't be very far up the redemption ladder if the "Prince of Peace" is swinging a stick at you. )

They were in fact exchanging real money for fiat money. Fascinating......

Been meaning to try it but we don't store for months at a time. 3-5 gallons a week.

Nothing ever changes


"We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization"
- Gaius Petronius Arbiter 210 BC (Disputed Attribution)

I would think this fits more to life (and trading) than just to our petty politics. Can I get an amen or is someone gonna jump on my throat again with some nonsensical Dunning Kruger BS again?
