But under your own example of the difference between a private security and a local PD. The private security, is a private company, paid for by some or all, to do a job and they are making a profit, thus it is not socialism. The local PD, in the majority of cases, are not charging people for that service, are paid for by all of the residents of a city, via taxes, no matter where they live, is, by its definition, socialism at work. The whole, paying for the service used by all. The private security is the few paying for services that it only uses, and not everyone else.

Take that example the private security and the Police department. There is a crime outside of that gated community, the private security has no reason to or authority to step out and take care of the matters, only stop it from coming into the area. The police on the other hand, has the authority and reason to go to stop it, covering even those who paid for the private.

Nah. You can keep those. I think my animal-tranquiller-tipped rubber bullets should see me through.
When you all wake up, I'll buy you a beer.


If you tranquilize him while I'm around forget the beer, he'll need therapy when he wakes up.


Poor baby. You seem to be under the impression that you would be spared of one of my calming bullets.
Sadly no. I might however, put a pillow under your head as you fall, and make a sandwich for you when you wake up.
Depending on my mood.

(sorry for the late reply. I'm up and down from here, and feel badly about posting at all at times. I get distracted, and move on to real-life, and forget, and am accused of running away). If I can't hang with it for an hour or two, I probably shouldn't post at all.)


If we say "agree to disagree" and "stop forcing beliefs/opinions onto others" then we end up in a state of co-existence. But realistically, is there any person on either side willing to make such a compromise? Essentially is it not the left wing saying "this needs to change" and the right wing saying "no things are fine as they are" ?


Co-existence is something we might have to settle for, for a time. What other way is there? It's always been the status quo, hasn't it? It seems to have worked. All of the people are not happy all of the time. We will indeed have to bring back our old tradition of "compromise". I for one, would agree to a wall, simply to get him to shut up. I would prefer the money be used for updated infrastructure such as rapid transit systems, riding on glorious bridges, but anything to shut him up. Perhaps republicans could concede to health care to get us to shut up, but not just the unproductive lip service. A viable a plan. A plan - period. Gun purchases will also have to be compromised.
Thorough back ground checks. No rapid fire weapons. Common sense.
An actual plan. This I won't budge on. Too many innocents, young ones, dying at the hands of the mentally ill.
Surely you don't deny that.

JB you are such a smart man. Very smart. Well written, and you seem reasonable. But you're not. You are one of the ones who won't budge. Is there anything before you, you would agree to compromise on?

I am trying to focus myself these days on what is 'constructive". Constructive vs. Destructive. My actions, my words, and even my own thoughts. This post. Is it constructive? Or is it destructive?

There are those who construct to make things better, and those who destroy. Shouldn't we strive to be the former? Especially now.

Will you do something for me? Pleeze?

Will you ask yourself before you make another thread, "Are these words constructive or destructive? Just a quick mental scan, to observe what you're saying? It does still matter, doesn't it?

President Kennedy warned of this secretive enemy that worked to destroy our Republic. He shared their tactics, plans, to destroy the United States, from within.

Our enemy isn't a country or series of countries, but rather, organizations that put foot solders on the battle field covertly, with no uniform. Media, Lawyers, doctors, mentally ill, average people from all over the world are used and confused by tactics that seem reasonable and righteous, but only intention is to destroy the true goodness of people.

This war isn't against primarily the United States, but is global in nature. The head of this enemy isn't the Rothschild or George Soros, it goes much much deeper, and wishes to remain, anonymous (Secret Society).

When it does become a shooting type war, the enemy shouldn't be difficult to spot. Hey Joe...how many did you get today? 121...preggers only count as one you know.
