    Recruited by the FBI, armed thru “fast and furious” and promised a free cell phone to be a martyr for the liberal cause. You have to have a crisis to be able to “not waste” one.

    Some people think so.
    The idea though would be to shut down football so there would no longer be a reason to have a lake jump. If the tradition was a marksmanship contest and someone got hurt that would seem to be the proper liberal response. Sorry I wasn’t clear enough to be understood.

    How about we just shut down sports? Isn’t any amount of sacrifice worth it “if we can save just one life”? Or is that only when it’s someone elses sacrifice? What about the children? I would think this would be a no brainer considering colleges are run by liberals.

    You can’t wipe out ISIS when your funding, arming and training them in hopes they’ll overthrow Assad. We need to stop thinking we can tell the difference between “good” and bad muslims. The middle east is nothing more than a collection of wannabe dictators. Overthrowing one just puts another in it’s place. Let Russia and Europe handle it. With our retarded rules of engagement there is no way for us to be effective anyway.

    But don’t worry Syrian refugees will be carefully screened.

    If you like your religion you can keep your religion. Just keep it over there. We have our own religious police. They’re called vice cops and they’re bad enough.

    Even the 17 second claim is disputable. According to a letter Turkey sent to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the 15 members of the UN Security Council, the Russian warplane, flying at 19,000 feet, “violated Turkish national airspace to a depth of 1.36 miles and 1.15 miles in length for 17 seconds.” 1.15 miles in 17 seconds equates to 243 mph. That’s pretty close to stall speed for for a Su-24. The plane was likely flying faster than that.

    Liberals being eaten alive by their own creation is fun to watch. No doubt liberals will be voted back in next election cycle too.

    ……….one way and other, pretty well to bring the year about, and some of the abler sort and more industrious had to spare, and sell to others.”
    The Jamestown colony in Virginia had similar experiences as they started under the same rules:
    They were to own nothing.
    They were to receive only as much food and clothing as they needed.
    Everything that the men secured from trade or produced from the land had to go into the common storehouse.
    Of the 104 men that started the Jamestown colony in 1607 only 38 survived the first year and even those had to be marched to the fields “to the beat of a drum” simply to grow food to keep them alive in the next year. Captain John Smith writes after the common store concept was abandoned:
    When our people were fed out of the common store, and labored jointly together, glad was he could slip from his labor, or slumber over his task he cared not how, nay, the most honest among them would hardly take so much true pains in a week, as now for themselves they will do in a day. … We reaped not so much corn from the labors of thirty, as now three or four do provide for themselves.
    The Thanksgiving we celebrate is for the success of the Pilgrims after establishing property rights and free enterprise as that event laid the foundation for the growth of America.

    Reflecting on the experience of the previous two years, Bradford goes on to describe the folly of communal ownership:

    “The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst godly and sober men, may well evince the vanity of that conceit of Platos and other ancients, applauded by some of later times; — that the taking away of property, and bringing in community into a common wealth would make them happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser than God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For the young-men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children, without any recompense. The strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and cloths, than he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice…”

    The Colonists learned about “the wave of the future” the hard way. However, once having discovered the principle of private property, the results were dramatic. Bradford continues:

    “By this time harvest was come, and instead of famine, now God gave them plenty, and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God. And in the effect of their particular [private] planting was well seen, …………

    ……and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little-ones with them to set corn, which before would allege weakness, and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.”

    Actually they came here to set up a communists utopia. Thanksgiving is a celebration of the death of collectivism and the birth of capitalism.
    Richard Grant in The Incredible Bread Machine writes,

    The experience of the first Plymouth colony provides eloquent testimony to the unworkability of collective ownership of property. In his history of the Plymouth colony Governor Bradford described how the Pilgrims farmed the land in common, with the produce going into a common storehouse. For two years the Pilgrims faithfully practiced communal ownership of the means of production. And for two years nearly starved to death, rationed at times to “but a quarter of a pound of bread a day to each person.” Governor Bradford wrote that “famine must still ensue the next year also if not some way prevented.” He described how the colonists finally decided to introduce the institution of private property:

    “[The colonists] began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery. [In 1623] after much debate of things, the Gov. (with the advice of the chiefest amongst them) gave way that they should set down every man for his own … and to trust themselves … so assigned to every family a parcel of land. This had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the Gov. or any other could use, …

    The past is easily forgotten. From the article

    “we decided to take a look back at what Erdogan said in 2012 after Assad’s air force shot down a Turkish F-4 phantom jet when it crossed into Syrian airspace. ”

    “Mr Erdogan spoke of Turkey’s “rage” at the decision to shoot down the F-4 Phantom on 22 June and described Syria as a “clear and present threat”. “A short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack,” he said.”

    That’s how you define hypocrite. FYI Turkey is also the same country the harbored Bin Laden. Turkey is not worth going to war for.

    “In 1620, a small band of Pilgrims came to this continent ”
    …and the Native Americans let them land and then lost their land. See how that works?

    Regulation is a favorite of both parties. It protects their major campaign contributors from competition. We’re actually at the point now where more business are folding every day than being created. Government has killed entrepreneurship in America. Obama wasn’t lying about the smoke filled back rooms in DC. He just lied about shutting them down and left out the fact that they exist in every government office from federal to city throughout the entire nation.

    But you steal my money to fight an unconstitutional federal war on drugs. You steal the assets of those who do drugs and give SWAT teams the right to murder me in the middle of the night if they mistake my house for the one on their no knock warrant to help fight the war on drugs. Pointing to thieving democrats still leaves three fingers pointing back at you.

    Does anyone else notice that the constitution only seems to matter if it suites government? Otherwise both parties use it as toilet paper. We could really use a French style revolution in this country. Something needs to put some fear into these politicians. Can’t think of anything more effective than 545 beheadings. That’s 435 house reps plus 100 senators plus the president and then 9 supreme court justices for those who may be curious where that number comes from.

    Something to think about while reading the next article demonizing meat.
