"It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks", is a proverb that was used often by both Latin and Greek writers. The word for "pricks" in the Greek is kentron [ken'-tron], which means a point or goad. In fact, in other translations (such as the NIV) the word "goads" is used.
A goad is a stick with a pointed piece of iron fastened to the end of it. This instrument is used to prod the oxen on when they are plowing. When a stubborn ox attempted to kick back against the goads (pricks), he would actually wound himself. The proverb was often used to teach the lesson that it is foolish to rebel against a powerful authority. Any attempt to do so would result in much greater difficulties.

I suppose they should get started in D.C. with Pelosi, Reid and Frank. Chop Chop. Times a wasting and the economy is only getting worse.
Sorry Biden, but you may get thrown under the bus as well.
“Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty ... or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.” Other items on the agenda included a plan to “continue to deceive millions of savers and investors who believe the hype about the supposed up-turn in the economy.
They are about to be set up for massive losses and searing financial pain in the months ahead,” and “There will be a final push for the enactment of Lisbon Treaty, pending on Irish voting YES on the treaty in Sept or October,” which would give the European Union massive powers over its member nations, essentially making it a supranational regional government, with each country relegated to more of a provincial status.

I kind of thought killing 2/3's of the dumb people off was kind of dumb to be honest. They spend all the time and effort making them dumb, only to then kill them off?

Your point is well taken and I'm aware of his past. When the system we all must live under is infinitely more corrupted, and for all intents and purposes free of prosecution as long as you "play along", I'm more inclined to give a guy like Trudeau a pass, especially when he's paid his debt to society and is still willing to take on the system and wake people up.

Although, the wolf in sheep's clothing ruse, of eugenics-loving fascist aristocrats hiding their true nature under the guise of humanitarian efforts is something I wouldn't put past them.

That's a really sick world view you have there.
You remind me of some of the eugenicists I've read about. You want to do it for the better of the rest of the world. Yeah right.
