You just don't get it. It's all about the injustice. Some guy went to school for 6 years and worked 12 hour days for 25 years and is sucessful and he has the ordacity to save his money and invest it and not share. It's just not right man. Why can't you understand. It's not just about jobs it's about the injustice of the system man. Just because someone dosen't spend their money on pot dosen't mean they should get to keep it.

Well sort of but it's more like the Army split in two. The elite troops are more elite than they were. The regular troops have not been held to the standards that they used to be. I don't agree with RHs politics, economics, career, etc. but that's not a requirement. I met him and he seemed like a nice guy.

At least Rockhound wasn't an RP. Even he wouldn't stand for that much hypocrasy.

Common sense is as timeless as it is true...thanks.

As to our boy Barry, I hope for the best for him even though he is a complete stranger. My version of "the best" is most likely vastly different from his (or even yours Hooch) but he is putting himself in a position that makes this very unlikely. Oh well haven't we all been in a position at one time or another in our lives to be honestly called useful idiots?...not in the Stalinist meaning that is.

Disclaimer; Law Dawg (ret) is not attempting to go poitical or even "religious". He holds (as stated above) that common sense is timeless and true and that it comes often in forms we may not like or even agree with. Sometimes it comes from sources that, like a broken clock, are correct at best only twice a day but the concept can still be true no matter the source or statistical accuracy.

Law Dawg also wants you to know that he expects you to vote just like he does...in private and any damn way he wants to. His "religious" views are similar. Transmission ends.

.....PS They invented MPs just to piss me off.:hammock:
Just a word in defense of MPs, at least the military police as they existed in the early 1950s, when I was drafted into the Army and assigned to the military police.

I was assigned to a company made up mostly of reservists from New Jersey, which aside from a couple of jerks struck me as pretty nice guys. We patrolled the towns around Fort Devens in Massachusetts.

Only once did anyone complain about me. A bartender stopped me and said he was about to call the civilian cops on a drunken soldier unless we took him back to the base.

So we talked to the guy nicely and got him as far as the patrol car where he started fighting. It took two of us to put cuffs on him and get him into the car, where he promptly fell asleep. We took him to his barracks, and walked him to his bed. The next morning he claimed we had beat him up.

As for corruption, once a kid from New Jersey who was on patrol with me ordered pizza at a restaurant, chatted with the owner, calling her "Mom," and then walked out without paying. Oh and I did abscond with a government clipboard. It was my favorite during the 35 years I later worked as a newspaper reporter.

Remember protestors around the globe accomplished much during 2011. Who would have thought that protestors in Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Russia could have accomplished so much. The Occupy movement and the 12,000 who encircled the White House to protest the Keystone pipeline bring important messages to the forefront and may motivate change! People Power when organized and mobilized is an amazing asset!

The movement has even reached our sleepy little coastal Maine town. A member of our town land trust board -- a retired major oil company lawyer -- went to Washington to join the Keystone pipeline protest. She is so proud to have been among the 1,200 who were arrested that she spoke about her adventures during a Sunday morning church service a couple of weeks ago.

Exactly. The Occupy protesters are noise.

Face reality, not naive beliefs.

And what will replace the SOBs who ran Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Russia? How well did it work out in 1979 when the Shah of Iran (a SOB) was replaced by the Ayatollah (a psychotic SOB)? Will the world now be a safer place (ask someone who lives in Isreal).

Eliminating the Keystone pipeline is change? So how should the oil be transported, in buckets?

And an arrest is something to be proud of?

But what do I know? I honor my debts, remember history, use the natural resource of oil, and have never been arrested.

Now Roche Sharia Law is fine to live under. Disclaimer;

1-If you are a Muslim male (a bit rough on the females but hey...works for us guys eh?).

2-If you are from the correct Muslim sect (Read: the sect that cuurently has the most power).

3-If you don't mind living in abject poverty and ignorance for the most part. Then there is the part of not minding your kids being sent as suicide bombers while the "leaders" kids don't (some things don't change no matter where you live).

Eliminating the Keystone pipeline is change? So how should the oil be transported, in buckets?

It will be sent to China instead. Win eh!?

And an arrest is something to be proud of?

From my perspective it is! Bread and butter baby, bread and butter!


Different strokes I guess. Mine is;

1-Oil is your friend and if you don't agree...junk your car, turn off your power, don't run your heater, and get rid of all that high tech backpacking gear that is made with oil or you are a hypocrite. I won't get into all the advances in modern medicine (and pretty much EVERYTHING else we use) that owe their existance to Petro Chemicals but you need to sort it all out and get rid of it too.

2-Religion is fine as long as your's does not cause you to chop my damn head off if I disagree with you.

3-Freedom to assemble is fine as is freedom of expression as long as I get the same and we all stay within the law.

4-Ultimately...pull your damn pants up, take a frickin bath, put down the bong, and get a job. You are not special, I don't owe you anything even a hand up (I will but only when it is my idea and you are humble about it), and get ready for life to have a picnic scholing you on reality ya filthy Hippie scum wanna be.:beer:

Well, dictatorships are often praised for providing stability. But I prefer the turmoil of people created governments.

As Winston Churchill famously said, "Democracy is a terrible form of government, but it's better than whatever is in second place," or at least words to that effect.

And yes, an arrest in furtherance of a good cause is something to be proud of. Many of those who supported the effort to free this nation from British control were arrested. Henry Thoreau was arrested for refusing to support unjust government activities, as was Martin Luther King, and the thousands that ended colonialism, and dictatorships throughout the world in recent decades.

You need to study history a bit more thoroughly, Roche.

Law Dawg (ret)

Speaking of studying history a bit more thoroughly. Friend, Winston also said;


Lenin was sent into Russia by the Germans in the same way that you might send a phial containing a culture of typhoid or cholera to be poured into the water supply of a great city, and it worked with amazing accuracy.

Perhaps a ground swell of passion can also result in a government headed by someone like Hitler as well (or Stalin/Mao/fill in the dictator blank).

No clever arrangement of rotten eggs will make a good omlet.
