    Im not trying to anoy anybody.I studied colonial american that era is when freedom was born.Somehow i dont think were a free nation like it truly was 200 years ago.Then tell me cooper why should people need a permit speaking out in public?Thomas jefferson belives the consituion is your ticket to free speech.
    Have you all forgot what these people stood for?What would we have become if it wasnt for these people?

    I assume you're refering to the upcoming protests at the RNC. You don't need a permit to speak out in public. Just take a walk in Times Square some day and you'll see that. However, when you plan to organize as many as 250,000 people to speak their collective minds at the same time and in the same general area you begin to involve public safety issues. I say let them come. The overtime I'm going to make during those two weeks in Aug and Sept is going to make it a very good Christmas in the cooper household.

    We all appreciate what those who founded America did. They gave us a marvelous political system that celebrates diversity and survives even the most unimagianble attempts to abuse the freedom they gave us.

    Cooper you are truely an hero to many americans on 9-11.But when i talk about american heroes those men you see in those art are my american heroes.And those men mean something to me along with this flag. :flag: Our country wouldnt excisted if it wasnt for those men.So im thankful we had men who fought for freedom like thomas jefferson and those people at the boston tea party.I just wish we could be that patroitic again.

    I agree that we all give up little freedoms way too often. Its little things here and there that we aren't supposed to notice.

    But as far as running from the police to try and avoid a ticket? You are nuts

    The people that started the riots in LA were just a bunch of thieves and A_holes that took the opportunity to steal and burn down their own neighborhood.

    BTW we didn't buy any gas today, where is my refund check?

    Those colonel americans did not put up with the brits running our lives nether.Thats why they did something about them.Same way with gas prices and putting up with liberals getting involved in our lives.We should rebell against the liberals.But were just a tolerance society not a rebellion society like those colonel americans were.

    Steve, the colonists rebelled because they were taxed without representation. You however, are represented. If you don't like the people representing you, vote them out. But you keep saying we need to get rid of the "liberal" polititians, while when I look at the White House and both Houses of Congress I see conservative Republicans in control. Are you totally against a two party system? If some people in this country feel they want to be represented by a person who is liberal, why shouldn't they have the right to elect such a person? Do you actually have a problem with a representative system.

    They werent any liberals back in colonial american.If they were any i bet the brits would have won and the whole north america would became canada.
    Thats why we need a strong society back.A society that has zero tolerance just like it was back in colonial america.

    This explains it all:

    Interests:
    "WWE Wrestling" :grin:

    The colonials (Pilgrims) WERE liberals, thats they were forced to leave England and fled to Holland. So they could practice their religion. They then left Holland for America in a little boat called the Mayflower.

    The colonials owned slaves and killed tens of thousands of Indians. Be careful how high you build that pedestal.

    You know what the punishment is for murder back those days?
    THE PUNISHMENT IS DEATH! You tell me if thats very liberal.Cause liberals dont belive in the death penalty.The only kind of murder they only belive in is killing babies.

    Well, yesterday, 19 May 04 was the ** :flag: Great American Gas Out :flag: **

    I didn't buy gas. Not because I necessarily believed in the cause, but rather,
    at those prices, I couldn't afford it - and also possibly due to the fact I have
    driven only 000007 miles since my last fillup two days ago on the 17th. I still
    have gas. I am not sure if others participated in the 'gas out' as successfully
    as I did. I will watch the news today to see just how successful I was.

    As I came to work this morning I noticed that at least one station had jacked up their price another dime overnight and now is charging $2.09. They were evidently hit hard by yesterday's gas out and really need to get rid of that excess gas. Gottem on the run now.

    we need to do what the canadian truckers did a little while back and block a significant government building with 18 wheelers or somthing.I dont know what building in the usa you would do that to.
    in canada this is what they did. but only bad thing is diesel is almost 40 cents a gallon cheaper so looks like truckers wont go for it. lol

    After Oklahoma City, I wouldn't recommend parking trucks outside of buildings as a protest.
