    Once upon a time, on a field shaped like a diamond a ball game was played. The game was similar to baeball today, but there were many fewer rules then there are today. The game to which I refer was played in the 19th Century, and in the last inning of that game, the visiting team was ahead and the home team a bat in the last of the ninth.
    The home team had the bags loaded, and their powerful left handed first baseman at bat. The visitors, knowing and fearing his power shifted their defense to the right, leaving a large gap from the left field line to the power alley in left-center.
    With two outs, and ahead by only one run, the visitors were on the brink of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
    The visitors pitcher was clearly tired, and had few throws left. But in those days relief pitchers were rare, and a man was expected to go all the way. The visiting manager sent his two spare players down the left field line to 'warm' up, in case the game went extra innings, knowing his ace was soon to be done, yet hoping he could finsih the inning.
    So the sceane was set, Smith and O'Malley warming up down the left field line; Jones, the left fielder playing deep and far into left center; and Davis on the hill ready to throw.
    Davis winds and the batter swings, a deep, long and high fly ball down the left field line. Jones starts to run to make a play, but is too far from the line to have any chance, and then, from the dugout the visiting manager hollars for all to hear, "O'Malley in for Jones!"
    O'malley drifts onto the playing field, and makes the catch saving the game for the visitors.

    The point of the story? In the old days of baseball there was no rule requiring time to be out to make a subsitution; and no rule requiring all players but for the catcher to be on the field of play.

    Right... and how do we fund the Army?

    Are you saying there are laws against barter? :cuckoo:

    Yes... fuck the old, the sick, and wounded veterans. They should ahve been born nobels if they didn't want to live in the gutter. Back to 1845!

    Yes! Fuck transparency! Bring back the trusts! More monopolies 1845, here we come! Put the children back in the coal mines!

    !

    wait... so.. open the border?


    Moron...

    The problem is that people think they have so many "rights" now that it will never work.

    If you support taxation than gunpoint obviously.

    There certainly is. At the end of the barrel of a gun the government takes what it deems necessary.

    If you support violence to "help the veterans" that is your choice. Just don't pretend your peaceful or justified.

    Do you know what the largest monopoly is (and also has the least amount of transparency)? Government.

    Whose border is it? Yours? Who are you to say I can't cross that border?
