The difference is the current administration knows the results of it's actions and wants us to fail.

Hindsight is 20-20.



Right now we need 200 some odd 30-30s..




Note to the JBTs: I do not advocate violence towards the government. I do not agree with the course those who are supposed to be representing we in the general population (herd of sheople) are taking and I'm simply voicing my displeasure in a figurative manner. I wish instead that we could fire the entire lot and start from scratch, after taking back the centurys worth of money they have stolen from ours. And yours.

Preach!

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

Halfway glad you qouted that, as, in fear of my government, I came back to insert more commas and delete that which may end in my being imprisoned for more than two months without representation because I did something to piss off my government. AKA our elected representatives.

Very nice find!

If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

Yep, once I became a Lieutenant I got access to information I had never seen before. Mike was near the top of the first intel bulletin I read.

Lol. Wasn't me Don. It was that other Mike, over there. ---->

In all seriousness I wonder closely how boards and topics like these really are watched. I wouldn't really doubt that there are people who do nothing but track stuff like this...

The way I feel about that is, if they pulled that crap on me and put me in jail without representation, if I ever got out, they would have no worse enemy.
