  1. I thought to myself as I was reading your drivel, "Does this clown actually think I'm serious about this Putin, BS? Nah. That can't be. Nobody's that fuckin' dumb." But here you are.
  2. Danger is my game. Fun. Busted a hundred thugs and threw their thug asses in jail; rapists, murderers, robbers, punks, et. al. Outdoor adventurer. Driven my mountain bike across three states, driving night and day. Lived in several Asian countries, where I was the only White boy in the whole village. Lived just like they did. Climbed and hiked all over North America in the most remote places I could find. Armed and unarmed security in the most violent neighborhood in Clark County, NV, elbow to elbow with thugs and Metro, survived ten years of it--unscathed. Survived three months in the Amazon River Basin, nobody but me, a handful of science guys and the wild Indians, scrounging for food, . Survivalist excursions, dog sledding up North, winter survival excursions well below forty degrees farenheit. Dozens more fun activities to add to my resume. And did it all on my own, on my own dime. No military or other agency backing me or paying my way. No barracks to go home to at night. Just me. Alone. All of it. Unscathed. Come on up to Brookings County whenever you feel ready, fella. I've got a rigorous, dangerous activity schedule made just for you. Let's put you to the test. Come on up. It's still summer. That'll make it a little easier on you... you hope. Bring a good pair of boots.
  3. It's good to see people are getting sick and tired of it. Our own governments standing back and standing by as violent mobs wrack and burn our cities--yet we're forced to stay home because they said so. Stupid. Some people are fighting back. Good. Rebel. Revolt. Or die. Your choice.
  4. The Legend, BPS, nails it home again. This is one of the main things I mean when I tell slaves they are slaves and they dont even realize it.
  5. I'm not even going to help you pretend you did not know my Putin stories were wisecracks. Nor was I accusing you of despair. It was only a suggestion. No despair going on here. All that being said, I'm curious... what makes you think Putin is such a tyrant?
  6. Do-it-yourselfers can make their own laundry soap. It's pennies on the dollar, so to speak, after all the so-called, "dollar" is only worth a few pennies to begin with... you get the point... and the soap is by far and away better than any of the laundry detergent you buy off the shelf, does not eat your clothes, and is biodegradable. It's easy to do and it's a no-brainer. There are a thousand different recipes for laundry soap on YouTube and the Internet in general, so do your research there and pick the recipe you like best. Meantime I will provide here a simple recipe I use at home and save hundreds of dollars per year. Here is what you will need: 1. A bar of your favorite soap 2. A soup kettle or large cooking pot 3. One cup of Super Washing Soda 4. One cup Borax 5. One quarter cup of baking soda and/or one quarter cup Oxyclean or equivalent (all optional) 6. A five gallon bucket w/ lid 7. Something to stir with. I use a length of discarded broomstick Get a bar of your favorite soap. I use Fels-Naptha or ZOTE. Fels-Naptha is a more powerful cleaner than ZOTE, so I prefer it over ZOTE for that reason alone, as I lead an active lifestyle and get a whole lot of dirty, sweaty, and smelly. Fels-Naptha does the job for me. OK, you got your soap. Now, either grate the soap or chop it up into small pieces and put it into a soup kettle with about four quarts of tap water. Grating takes longer, but it's worth it, as the soap melts much faster. Put the kettle on the stove at low heat and melt down the soap, stirring occasionally until all is liquified. Do not cover the kettle while it is heating. If you do, the soap will rise up over the edge of the kettle and spill onto your stovetop. What a mess. Anyway, keep the lid off and the heat low and you will have great success. While your soap is melting, pour yourself one cup of Super Washing Soda and one cup of Borax and put them aside. You can also pour out your baking soda and/or Oxyclean if you choose. Its not necessary, but adds cleaning power if so desired. That's it. That's all the ingredients you will need. You can find them in the laundry section of your grocery store or big department store. Even drugstores have them. Once your soap is melted, pour this mixture into your clean five gallon bucket. I do the mixing in the bathtub because I am messy. Fill the bucket about halfway with hot water, as hot as it comes from your tap. Start slowly pouring your Super Washing Soda and baking soda and your other optional ingredients into the hot mixture, stirring all the while until all ingredients are liquified. Once this is done, fill the bucket the rest of the way with the hot tap water, cover and leave your bucket sit overnight. You're done. That's all there is to it. In the morning, you will find the bucket is room temp and the mixture inside has separated with a thick gel or hardened cake on top and thinner liquid going to the bottom. This is normal. Just break up the cake or the gel and stir your mixture until even. Your soap is ready to use. I take a plastic laundry bottle and fill it with my soap and keep it in my laundry supply for daily use. I go back to the bucket for a refill when I need one. The soap will separate between uses, so be sure to stir the bucket and shake the bottle before using.
  7. You're boring. And I'll bet you a peanut butter and jelly sandwich--you're the lousiest bicycle driver in the whole world.
  8. Lots of shootings and Trump calling the guard to WI. We're not in Kansas anymore.
  9. And you're right. Not all cops are power-mad lunatics. Lucky you.
  10. Not at all. The despair you detect might be your own reflection in my words. You may not enjoy hearing what I have to say perhaps. As for me, Freedom can live without United States Corporation. I will not miss it the way it is. This is not Freedom, it is not the Bill of Rights, not the inspiration of our forebears nor of Rand, Paterson, and others. Not even close. And whatever comes after it might be a good thing. We might get Freedom right next time around. I've had a good life. I can't deny that. So, I know the good stuff when I see it. I want to pass something along to my grandchildren and make it even better than I had it. If we do not leave it better than it was, we have failed. Don't despair. I'm not. Freedom will win. It always does. The only question is, what will be the cost? The sooner we shrug, the sooner we break the chains and put the tyrants in the dirt and send them running and hiding, the sooner we can get back to the good life we have always known.
  11. Isabel Paterson said the same thing in her book. "The God of the Machine". "Don't say nothing can be done." But I fight for Freedom, not United States Corporation. The Bill of Rights. Not Dems and Rebublicans. Screw that rot. I have no despair. I have been in this since at least the mid-1980s. I am prepared for whatever comes. Seen it all coming a long way off. Come what may.
  12. Gibberish video. These people are dupes, useful idiots and criminal assholes and nothing more. They don't even realize they are being used, the same way Trump uses his conservative base to get votes and pretend he's not the New York Libtard that he really is. Black lives matter right now because of what their new slave masters, i.e., the corporate media, the Left, the billionaires, etc. are trying to pull off an election and take down USA. When the election is over--black lives won't matter anymore. Fight for freedom, not politicians and billionaires and their henchmen and their whiny, crusty turds infesting our streets.
