Gosh, I wonder if the follow on book will cover President Roosevelts illegal arming of the Chinese by using funds and materials that meant for the British that were used for the so called "American Volunteer Group", a set of US Miltary pilots serving illegally and violation of congressional rulings about neutrality that were in action the time. President Roosevelt and his party have much to answer to in regards to Mr. T.V. Soong and his use undue influence in the White House around that illegal and unjust war.Comment Posted By Frank Martin On 1.06.2008 @ 23:03
Conspiracy theories bring a sort of comfort to the losers of life, the 'little man' whos lost his way in the game. In their mind they think that if there are big conspiracies afoot, then that explains their inability to acheive success in the world. For these people, conspiracies take on a life of their own, because the wounded soul that espouses them needs the conspiracy to exist, whether or not there is a conspiracy in the first place or more importantly that there is a damn thing they can do about them even if they were true in the first place, which they almost never are or could be.
A conspiracy theory acts as a sort of 'shadow puppet theater' to the mind of the wounded soul. With a well wound "all seeing all knowing" conspiracy in action, these folks get to act out their twisted and irrational vision of the world which has all the reality of that found lit by flashlight in a tent made under the blankets in their childhood bedrooms late in the night; all while the wider adult world goes on oblivious to their pathetic theatrics.Comment Posted By Frank Martin On 6.11.2007 @ 19:45

grow up, get out more, visit canada, visit mexico. Thanks to the evil international highways that already exist, you can drive over there all by yourself. Heck you can even drive french speaking quebec. (Zut allours!)
Go find a hobby, take up competitive whittling but for gods sake get off the crackpipe of half assed and fundamentally stupid conspiracy theories.
There are real things to strike out against, this is not one of them. There is just no "there" there.

you know old eisenhower did a fair amount of tearing up of texas ranches to make highways back in the day. The interstate highway system is the result.
and it seems that good old roosevelt did his share in flooding the tennessee valley. and mulholland did his part turning owens valley into a desert so LA could have green lawns.
if TXDOT is now "taking farms" its hardly new, and its hardly news. its called " eminent domain" and its been used for a good long time. Its a cornerstone of civilization - see above for reference material.
It sucks, but there you are.
If someone wants to build a freeway to make it easier to do trade, its hardly a signal of the coming of the new international zionist conspiracy(the canadian chapter)?
And we have an international mexico-us-canada freeway already - its called I-5. I dont remember any caterwauling in 1968 when it was created to replace the decrepit highway 99.
Gee, I wonder if the Canadians every bitched about the "alaska highway" going through their country from the lower 48 to alaska. Of course Canadians have better beer than we do and clearly have better thing to do with their time than masturbate over asinine conspiracy theories.Comment Posted By Frank Martin On 20.08.2007 @ 12:11
Speaking as a half canadian who grew up in southern california, I can assure you, from the deepest part of my soul, that there is no plan, half baked or otherwise to join canada with the US.
Sure, the western half of canada has a good relationship with the States(unlike the snots in ontario, and dont get me started abouth quebec; quebec is so french they dont even get along with france!) but there is zero sentiment in western Canada to apply for statehood with their neighbors to the south.
Zero. Nada. Zilch.
Ok, how about Ontario? less than zero. absolute zero. I know that people here in the US just cant accept that not everyone wants to be an American, but trust me, there are lots of people who like being the unknown country in international politics.
They are called "Canadians".
There is absolutely no one who isnt a tin foil hatted "I went to roswell and all I got was this t-shirt" x-files rerun watching "their out to get me" type who believes this stuff. It's crap. It's total crap, its so crap that the crap has to crap itself three times to get lower than this crap.
And Mexico becoming part of the union? Hell most parts of Mexico cant even agree to be part of Mexico.(Chiapas, Baja, and so on)
The same group of mensa rejects who think this is going to happen would also be the first ones falling to the floor and frothing at the mouth if Canada applied to join the EU. That, my tinhatted friends is something that Canadians an their government have considered, and rejected. Is it possible? yeah, its a hell of alot more possible than the Canadians becoming part of the US.
Canadians do become part of the US all the time - they move here.
Frankly, its how I got here.
I've lived and worked in Canada, I have Canadian family, my mom is Canadian. They talk like us(sort of), they come from Europe(mst of the time), but they are not Americans, and they like it that way, and its going to stay that way.
Have you noticed that we are not on the metric system here in the US? Canada and the rest of the world is on the metric system. You see any great move to put us on the metric system?
That is a simple, easy to manage level of change that will have to occur long before the two countries come together. All the other levels of change are much more difficult to accomplish, so if we cant work out how to convert to the metric system, what makes you think the rest will be easy?Comment Posted By Frank Martin On 20.08.2007 @ 09:33

So I ask you; when someone goes into that chapel and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife doesn't miscarry or that their daughter doesn't bleed to death or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trama from postoperative shock, who do you think they're praying to? Now, go ahead and read your Bible, Dennis, and you go to your church, and, with any luck, you might win the annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, he was in operating room number two on November 17, and he doesn't like to be second guessed.
