You know, there comes a point where all I can do is laugh.

Enjoy the kool-ade. I'm sure it tastes sweet going down.

And down is where it will take you.
Well we live a strange time then, where supporting the constitution and the bill of rights is going to take down the country.:unsure:

I not worried or scared. I know the American golden rule. "The ones with the gold make the rules."

Until money becomes obsolete the system we have now will continue to plod along like Lemurs to a cliff. When the fed fails those with vast holdings in goods, properties and foreign investment and fortunes will descend like carpet baggers or Vultures on an unprepared nation and oil may replace gold to a petroleum addicted society. The antichrist and his minions may take over unopposed.

We have the technology now to replace cash with pin numbers.

I read Elizabeth Warrens wealth redistribution plan this morning and I sounds Marxist so she won't be getting my vote either. And Bernies' plan of taxing the top .1%, 77% will get him killed before it gets passed.

here is the thing - young people, who have been the colleges ( socialism indoctrination centers ) want this.

do some research on how many people support socialism now vs. 25 years ago.

stunning.

It would seem there is a real hatred towards the rich...smh

Also interesting how the use of petroleum, fossil fuels and natural resources are the now the new great satan.

It is not addiction, it is called prosperity and has benefited and increased the standard of living for people all over the world.

Study Bible
Contentment in Godliness
…9Those who want to be rich, however, fall into temptation and become ensnared by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. 10For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 11But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.…

"Love of Money" "Craving"

"Some"

This is a warning to believers about the heart, it does not condemn being rich.

No theological principle and no biblical text tell us how much money we can or should have. We don’t pass into the realm of sin when our net worth passes a certain line on the income scale.

Not all rich people are evil, mean or unfair. But how can we drain the swamp unless we get the corruption out and money is what it feeds on.

I guess you have no facts then to support your claims like these "people" who crashed the economy in 2008?
Seriously? Goldman sachs - too big to fail - huge socialist government bailout - now part of Trumps swamp?

Seriously? Steve Mnuchin - head of Indy Mac bank - the darling of the sub prime mortgage mess that started the economic plunge in 2008 - now Trumps right hand man?

Seriously? Anthony Scaramucci and Gary Cohn - part of the GS clan who also led the way into a worldwide depression - part of Trumps cabinet picks?

Seriously? You know that kool-ade will blind you if you get it in your eyes.

Now, to be fair, I blame the libertards for people like you. They've been dumbing down this country for 60+ years, pushing society from rational thought to emotional sound bites, creating the myopic ignorance and personal arrogance that then allowed the conservatards to convince people to not only act against their own best interests, but to do so militantly. As per wit.

Again, we were told where the world will end up. It is dangerous to think righteous leaders are going to get us there. demitard or republitard, they are two roads that lead to the same place.

So stop arguing about which road you want to take to ruination, and maybe start thinking about getting off that path entirely.

I fear that oil will replace gold for the world monetary standard, In fact I expect that's how the real Antichrist will get away with it.

I am Not a Republican, Democrat or Libertard.
So not sure what you are going on about.

There are two scenarios, theatre (lies) and reality (truth)

The only thing that matters is knowing what is theatre (Blue Pill) and what is reality (Red Pill)

As for where things end up....... I am sure that in the dark ages things looked pretty bleak too!!

btw...

Data shows that foreclosures were spiking at subprime giant IndyMac even before Mnuchin and his partners bought the bank, and that a large percentage of the mortgages they acquired were hopeless.

Scarmucci was fired, not sure if you took high school civics but a Communications Director is not a member of Cabinet

Cohn, economic adviser, not a Cabinet member also fired

I asking who are these people tucked into the white house that crashed the economy in 2008?

That was what RickyZ alleged.

Do you know who they are?

No, I can't recall any. Who are the people that you are talking about??? President Obama did a great job dealing with not 1 but 2 wars that He inherited. I do agree with you that Obama bailing out the banks was a big mistake. The banks did not do one thing for the millions of people facing bankruptcy... With the money that he gave the banks He could have given every household in the U.S 60,000 dollars! That would have stimulated the economy in a massive way... Don't you think. Just imagine. 60,000 in your account over night... that would'nt of helped you...

You're fine except for the parts in red. You may not think you're a republitard, but the way you take o their punch and cookies says different. And the red pill is no more rooted in reality than the blue. And the dark ages looking bleak? You've never read Revelation, have you?
