    I'm not defending any governments behavior Cesar. Certainly the Iraqi government is one sick example among many. But if you must know, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the bombings of Dresden and berlin after the war was over, gifts of small-pox infested blanket's that wiped out over 1/e of the native populations of all the America's...these are but a few of our gov's older crimes against humanity. Today's are mostly of the economic variey where the corporations do the dirty work while the gov. looks the other way: ENRON, the bribing of African officials by Haliburton whereby natural resources are plundered while the people starve, the allowing of the B.I.S to direct the Federal Reserve resulting in economic downturns that wipe out life savings, the use of the military to enforce illegal trade policies abroad, doing nothing about Wall-Street greed, rewarding banks with bailouts after their greedy loan practices were revealed, the allowing of meat and dairy farmers to drug their cattle to make them(and US) fatter...(cont)

    ...and sicker. (before 1994, only crooked ranchers drugged their cattle illegally) Allowing big-pharma to sell US drugs we don't need(over 250,000 die each year from taking ill-prescribed drugs) We spend more on drugs than on national defense. Virtually every Congessman has a huge stock portfolio filled with big oil and big pharma. // If you think our gov. is honest and upright, and that their policies do not result in the loss of innocent life, you are sadly mistaken my friend. But I like you even more than before Cesar! 🙂

    Hi raven! You better not be texti-driving youn lady. (you are fem. i gather, but don't really know for sure) Yeah, Cesar and I have our moments, but I think that we kinda stand out here as examples of how two people can argue without hurling personal insults like rocks. We still like each other at the end of each day. For a long time now too. Glad to see you again raven, and am looking fwd. to getting to know you better. 🙂

    Ok raven. Yeah, the Egypt story is very alarming and sad. And please feel free to post your thoughts here, whatever they may be. People of all backrounds, ages, and levels of education are here. There are those who will make fun of you, but then there are those, many of whom you have already met, that will appreciate your comments. If they may seem silly or if they disagree, the danger would be staying up all night with the likes of banasy drinking mulled wine and having a good old time! We are here for you and we want you to be here for us too. You are one of the few, the proud...the nice! I spotted you straight away as did my friends. You are special!

    @RUFFNUTT...such is youth, even my own. Only I was a roughneck working on drilling rigs back then, and it was us doing the beating. (although things didn't always go as planned...so yeah, even though there was no such thing as a 'blunt' back then, we had Alculpulco gold up the wazzoo, and we imported our own Peruvian flake from our years long contracts offshore Peru, hidden in the skids of our equipment sent back to the states for "repair". Enjoy and squander your youth while you can. Old-age sneaks up on you like a thief, and the only service he does is to whack you on the back of your head and say "you dumb azz, what where you thinking!". Good to see you again. where's chrissy? he he

    So a troll posted your blunt story RUFFNUTT? Though we've seen each other here for many months, I hardly know you. Like when someone trolls banasy, I can tell right away. Anyhoo, good to always see you here.

    I try and remember that "sufficient for each day is it's own badness" and "do not let the sun set on you in a provoked state". A whole weeks worth of crap can crush me, and has. Each day is a gift for me. I wish I had done this when I was younger. Better late than never!

      Philip you sound just like we share the same faith. I am very familar with those scriptures. We are almost there and all the signs point to it. We need to keep up the good work and run the race of endurance.

      Have a good day my Brother.
