Among a small group of a few million other people, my computing life has spanned both macs and pcs. I have personally been involved closely with apple in its early (Pre $50 a share) years. Steve jobs would have thrown the entire operating system away before it was released with an inferior product. He had a few things that never made the impact they could have, and arguably sucked at the time of their release, but even his failures (Next, Apple III) lead to technology that has literally changed the entire world. But cook has mighty big shoes to fill. I do not think he is quite jobs. But jobs chose him, so I have to hang in a while longer. If you hate apple already, you can put this in that important mental justification folder you seem to keep. :)

I have worked for myself all my life. I am the Florida spokesman for a 501c4. I watch the environmental left putting family fisherman out of business as their backers on the Walton family fund something called “Catch Shares”. That is a UN strategy to pass fishery management first to the Feds and then to the UN. It is a tiny thing, but fundamentally based on redistributed and controlled wealth. Fish is the only protein not on the mercantile. What is happening in this election is global in nature. It is not about the parties. Obama is creating the global utopia. Equal results. It is why he was hired.

I can show any of you how EDF, PEW, the Ocean Conservancy, and the Walton Foundation are playing crony capitalism to a degree that would floor you. How? Regulations. JoinRFA.org.
Sport fishing is now illegal in Germany and Sweden. In Sweden you are required to own a machine gun, but you cannot “torture” fish ( I am not kidding ). It is coming here, folks.

Feral boar. @snowleopard, you are a funny man. I know feral boar. The week that Publix closes they will be worth their weight in progressive Krugerands.

There is a beer mixed with tomato juice so you can buy beer with the ones that do not allow alcohol. And I see lottery tickets bought with them all the time. And rolling papers and “potpourris” like K2. They are advertising how healthy they are. The Feds hire agencies to do propaganda for our nanny state.

My God loves all things. The murderer, the prostitute, and non-believer and the atheist. Heck, He even loves my progressive friends. On a planet of intelligent bees, my God will appear as a Bee. Not as Divinity in the form acceptable to my human mind. And before you die convinced you know everything, consider the thought that we might not know much about the vast universe He/It created. But God is love, laughter, joy, and compassion. Not anger, greed, jealousy or self-impression. This man dancing shows our beauty, not our darkness. So bless him and all those smiles.
Another "Feel good, drop some money in the box on the way out" religion.
God said: Ye must be born again to receive the Kingdom of Heaven.
This feel good religion is not going to cut it. The bees are not going to save you, nor are those who are going to be scrambling and dancing to avoid the flames of hell when they are rewarded for their part in no acknowleging the One True God. These scientists who have certified one another to show others they know more than God and these educators who want to take credit for the good things in this world are spinning a web of deceit because of their foolishness. God gave them the life, the eyes and the intelligence to breathe, see and think and they have used this to advance their own agendas and perpetuate theories that are in and of themselves selfish and leaving God and Word out of the equation. They want the glory. It is a human flaw.

Here is an idea. An “I feel guilt about my personal success” donation line. Or you could name it “I will show my beliefs and their value from my own actions” button/field. Or one called “teach by example”.
The harsh reality from which all liberals hide intellectually is based on resource usage. Face it Lucas and Moore and all of you limo libs. ANYBODY with wealth uses more stuff than those with less wealth. It is the ladder of reality. Control 10M and you have a bigger footprint on the earth than if you control 100,000. You can splash guilt, and act as if your intentions (not the results of your sensless actions) are all that counts, but they do not count.
You want to help? Move 5,000,000 into a checking account. Buy ONE house that is maybe 5,000 square feet. Buy three cars, two boats, five bikes, a jet ski, and three motorcycles. And all the toys you can imagine ever wanting.
Then give the rest away. Leave the rest of us alone, OK?

I want to find the history books that they read on the View. I am sure not one of you have read That one ;).

Religious fervor over the years has hidden much in the dust of history. But after spending years in the Andes and seeing what appears to be clear evidence of softening rock as a standard construction technique, I feel that much of what happened 10,000 or 20,000 or 50,000 years ago is so far out of our imagination that whoever built some of those structures may very well have been aliens to us. We know nothing about our past. We don’t know about our present, much less our far past.
