We paid back the 'food' that you lent us along with the interest.

You haven't paid back damages from the Revolutionary War though, right?

You certainly did start it by trying to subjugate a freedom-loving people to England's brand of tyranny that was practiced all over the world, but we were the first to kick your godforsaken ass, and I'm not talking about the donkeys you sleep with!

:lol: You mean this 'tyranny' after we fought the French in the Seven year War? And by the 'we' bit you mean the 'we' that included the French and their money, artillery expertise and Navy, and Spanish and Dutch money. That 'we'?

By and large 'you' were British boob. Oh! Sorry I forgot you're a what? Second, third generation immigrant bob so I hardly think there's much of a 'we' or 'you' there.

You're all a bunch of socialists, which is tyranny enough for me.

You live in a world of over-sized type trying to make an incomprehensible point.

There are different degrees of socialism but anyone who accepts the benefits of living in a society is surely a socialist. If you don't want to be a socialist, bob, you should go and live in isolation in the woods or somewhere.

Again, I will say that the only proper function of government is social integration, like a traffic cop keeping people from running into each other. It has absolutely nothing to do with a goddamn socialist government taking money out of anybody's pocket to give to somebody else!

How wonderful life would be if simply saying something made it so.

Believe me, my friend, the AEP will make it operational, starting with a town, followed by a county, and finally a state, and if the U.S. government doesn't make satisfactory strides to this position, all hell will break out, I assure you!

What political party doesn't promise you the World in an election campaign? Let alone a purely notional, non existent party. If I ruled the World, every day would be the first day of Spring....
