In my job I have to see the results of the libertarian "nobody has the right to tell us what we can do with our bodies" philosophy. So, drug abuse is a "victimless crime"? BS. Every day I have to deal with mothers who were using all kinds of drugs during their pregnamcy, from pot to cocaine to meth, and their children suffer for it. Low birthweight, withdrawal symptoms right out of the womb, and medical problems caused by the mother's drug use that the children will have to deal with the rest of their lives are just a few of the issues I've seen. But, hey, it's all good, right? After all, it was the mother's free choice whether she would use, right? Who cares about a glob of cells in the womb anyway, she can just abort it and go about her merry, drugged-out way, continuing to be a drain on society and not contributing a damned thing. Do not EVER talk to me about legalizing drugs until you come up with a workable solution to this problem.
Wow, I actually agree with Chuck-you Schumer about something. I may have to go have a good, stiff drink after this.

There have been theories put forth that Patton was murdered because he opposed the Russians. I just find it hard to swallow that a man who lived the life he did would die in a "freak accident" right after the war.

If the south had won they would have been justified for putting Sherman on trial for war crimes for making war against the civilian population, which was against the rules of war at that time. Sherman was also not an abolitionist. After the war ended he demanded that the colored units not be included in the victory parades.
What's going on with the airlines these days? MH370, MH17, rocket attacks on Ben Gurion Airport, now Air Algerie. I'm thnking it's not a good time to be an airline passenger on an international flight.
The last time I was in DC was when GWB was President. I have vowed never to return until we get a President who is honorable and does not bring shame on the office. As for carrying my guns, when I did go to DC I was warned by my son-in-law, who was stationed at Andrews AFB at the time, that it would not be in my best interest to have a gun with me because of their laws.
I don't use the King James, I use the 1599 Geneva Bible, the one the Pilgrims brought with them in 1620.
