    Much appreciated......

    I have to admit that all the new agey stuff that I read has me going off in directions that are almost certainly unwise?!

    I guess my general belief in some form of reincarnation causes me to take such ideas more seriously than somebody else would tend to do?!

    No need to apologize to me at least. I probably would have supported England in the American Revolution as well or been one of those folks who left the colonies when it was over.

    Thank you! Some of my ancestors had the last name Mason who were United Empire Loyalists. They left "Dixie" to come to Country Harbour, Guysborough County, N. S. I kind of suspect that the 'Southern Drawl" is a survival technique............. by speaking slowly my ancestors could consider how to answer questions......... partly to decrease the probably of being executed as traitors to the USA????

    A lot of people got chased away by our freedom loving *cough cough* founders and their motley crew of sheep. Patriotism and the like just never worked with me. I knew it was BS when I was a kid and I know it today. I could be just as happy other places in the world, just as purposeful, etc.

    Our ancestors faced some astonishingly challenging situations..... for example....
    my English ancestors had good reason to fear French Canadians..... If the French had armed their First Nations allies in a major part of Canada....... they could have wiped out my ancestors and taken Canada, or most of Canada, for France!

    Those historical insights put a somewhat different spin on some of the terrible injustices of our history?!

    On a similar note .... if my English ancestors had armed their First Nations allies in the USA during those two decades from seventeen fifty to seventeen seventy or so .............................................. the consequences for America could have been pretty intense?!

    Maybe. For most of my life, from elementary school on, I have been raised not with the horrors of 9/11 but the photos of the dead. The stories of young men and sometimes women who should have been alive. They should have been at home or in college, or having babies, or anything else rather than dying for some pointless political war in Iraq. Other than England, not a lot of families around the war were losing children. It just emphasized how pointless and dangerous political ego wrapped in a flag can be. I am not an anarchist, but I really have no love and affection for America for doing that to our own people. It is our unpardonable sin in my book and always will be.

    I think you would be quite happy in England.....that is if you weren't Scottish or Irish. My ancestors were quite happy at taking down the Hessians and Lobsterbacks that forced taxation without representation on them.

    It is one of the places I have been seriously considering. Western Ireland is another. Even if I don't do it during my working career, I may take the leap in retirement.

    Yep. Galway or thereabouts maybe. They are supposed to have a really good food scene. What's the point of retiring if you can't get old and fat :oldman:

    Did some of us Canadians mess up Joe Biden in 2020?????????



    Are many of Joe Biden's troubles P. M. Justin Trudeau's fault?






    If you think that Mr. Joe Biden does not have any problems...... I do believe that within a month...... you will know that my prediction had some validity.

    To the degree that my impressions are in error... my apologies... but
    several of my friends and I feel guilty for having collaborated with people in
    high level Banking who in my opinion were playing with the darkness.

    I believe that the world is going to be radically changed over the coming six months......
    and I think that we will be amazed what will happen even within two months.....

    I'm almost certain any American harmed by Canuckistanis in the 18th century is dead now. They can, however, apologize for Quebec.

    I've been watching a British real estate show on TV a couple of times a month; small houses out in the middle of nowhere going for outrageous prices, and many still have straw for roofing. No thanks. And if you have row house in the city you won't be able to fit full sized appliances in it, they're so small.

    It's not a place for civilized people.

    That is an excellent point...... we Canadians did go into WWI and WWII first due to our closer ties to England, (or should I say to Europe because so many Canadians speaking French played an important role as well)!?

    Within a number of months...... i rather suspect that many members of the DNC will be looking at P. M. Justin Trudeau with something quite different from love and admiration................. (if the rumours about what is really happening do turn out to have some validity to them)??????????

    I could be wrong.....
    but the evidence that Dr. Tony Fauci is part of a plan to conquer Canada seems to be coming to light??????????

    Partly agree, like Germans and Jews, Germany can recognize the atrocities of their past and apologize for them, what they can not do is blame current Germans that were not even alive at the time for the acts of the past

    as a country we can apologize for our past, but it's not current white Americans that are responsible for that past, just like as a country we can thank white Americans for fighting to free the slaves, even though that credit doesn't go to current white Americans alive today

    it's all of our history as Americans... black or white... were all Americans together

    A factor that most of us tend to miss is that what looks like a "liability" on paper......
    or on a database........
    can work much like an asset in reality?!?!


    Some awfully intelligent people have convinced the governments of both the USA and
    Canada that we should not use the two central banks owned by the citizens but instead
    we should borrow the bulk of the money supply of Canada and the USA from banks NOT
    owned by the citizens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A situation happened here in Canada from 1938 to 1974 that I perceive as giving us
    all an example that can be used to propel the economy of both Canada and the USA into
    operating in the BLACK vs always being in the Red!?

    One logical place for this conflict and opportunity to be explained is from somewhere in Israel.......

    but this all needs to be explained clearly here in North America first.


    The idea of President TRump creating some sort of Volunteerism Hour and / or Volunteerism Dollar
    and / or Volunteerism Shekel........ has enormous potential if this idea is actually understood.


    I have reason to believe that the USA Federal Reserve was originally intended to function much like the Bank of Canada did
    from 1938 to 1974?!

    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...nal-income-supplement.569548/#post-1071512795




    Here is a post from politicalforum that if true.... implies that the Federal Reserve was originally intended to function like the Bank of Canada did from 1938 to 1974 and..... I have good reason to believe that the Bank of Canada was formed as it was based on the example set by President Lincoln during the Civil War?????



    http://www.politicalforum.com/index...and-why-that-must-end.211515/#post-1064784748




    So what could we actually do about all of this you ask?????


    COVID 19 and introduction of an unconditional income supplement

    and of course we know how the Trump's handle charity

    Biden is NOT President legally.......
    and I do believe that that will be common knowledge.......
    he really shot himself in the foot by sticking up for Dr. Tony Fauci!
