  1. I doubt if there will ever be another Civil War in the USA. Here are the questions every potential Civil War warrior would need to ask themselves: 1) Am I willing to possibly lose all or most of my material possesions and creature comforts? 2) Am I emotionally prepared to possibly see my family, friends and loved ones lose their lives? 3) Am I prepared to possibly lose my life in a Civil War? 4) Am I prepared to live in a Martial Law society for an extended period of time at the end of said Civil War? Unless you can answer YES to all those questions, don't even think about having a Civil War. There are many other (peaceful) ways to solve our problems. Let's do it that way. πŸ™‚
  2. Why would anyone need a gun like this? It is not needed for hunting. It is not needed for self defense/home protection. The only thing it's good for is mass killings. This was a sad day for California.
  3. I read an article a few weeks ago about the history of the Electoral College. I don't remember all the details of the article. But, I do remember thinking the Electoral College needs to be abolished.
  4. Thank you for posting these sites. I think I'll check them out.
  5. Do you remember the 2000 Presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore? Florida went against the will of the people. Oh wait. The Republicans had the Supreme Court decide that one for Bush. Sorry.
  6. So, what is the point in us regular citizens voting? If our voices don't matter in the long run, why bother? Why not just have the Electoral College choose the President?
  7. It prevents our elections from being decided by the majority. Which is exactly what the men who implemented it wanted. They didn't want the citizens to choose our President. So, they created the Electoral College to have ultimate control.
  8. During the colonial and antebellum period the Electoral College had a vital role in our elections. That is no longer true. We need to abolish the Electoral College.
  9. Yes, we should abolish it. And we should make it retroactive to 2016. πŸ˜„
  10. πŸ˜„Yes. Everything we see in the MSM is carefuly gone over before it is released to the public.
  11. Question: How many here think that there is a connection between the pillaging of third world countries and the caravans of people coming thru Mexico, wanting to get into the USA? Many of the people are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatamala. Did the big corps have a hand in destroying their home countries?
  12. Yes, it is great info. It helps me to understand our foreign policy better.
  13. I thought World AIDS Day was December 1st. President Bush died on November 30th.
  14. I have great admiration and respect for Michelle Obama. She was one of the best FLOTUS I've seen in my lifetime. Beauty. Brains. Class. Dignity. She has it all. I am currently reading her book, "Becoming". Great book.
  15. I am a lifelong California resident. I have visited several other states (Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma), but I wouldn't want to live in any of them. I love it here. Yes, the housing market is kind of expensive. But, there are many nice things here too. 1) Great colleges and universities. 2) State of the art hospitals; for adults and children. 3) Beautiful national parks (Yosemite, Sequoia) and amusement parks (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm). 4)Relatively cheap food since California is an agricultural state. One thing I don't recommend is to live in the cities. I live in a small town, surrounded by a rural area. And, it's helpful if you can speak Spanish, but it's not mandatory.πŸ˜„
  16. I loved Martin Luther King. He was assassinated when I was 13 years old. I remember the day very well.
  17. When you get to be retirement age those 3 programs might become more important to you.
