I want the Government we were promised

Not the one that we deserve.


(And, yeah, obviously this belongs in the OT but, for whatever reason, I'm not allowed to post there.)

Within limits.  The Federalist Papers show how dry-eyed these guys were about democracy even back then.  They knew that replacing a tyrant with a mob was hardly progress.  And to think they were just a bunch of rich, middle aged, white guys who didn't even listen to hip-hop music.  Amazing how they overcame all those limitations.

Ha! Someone's trying to bait me!

Okay, I'll play: does "the government we were promised" include the rights of black people to, you know, not be considered property?

Like RFK, Jr.? Or someone who didn't have 8 kids and try to stop wind turbine construction near his summer home?

I moved it.

I've become skeptical of "new" members who's first posts are in the OT calling out established members.  Not that there is necessarily anything wrong the content, but it seems to be part of a progression that I don't have patience for anymore.

Yeah Al Gore flying his huge Fing jet around saving the planet now that he is done inventing the internet. A family joke since my father in law was actually one of the engineers that did create the internet.Good ole Al has the personal carbon footprint of a mid sized city.

Harv I like the new guy though he seems like he was either a long time lurker or a retread
