    Actually, it's the opposite.

    Hopefully, one day you'll learn that.


    Have a nice day.
    Well, you are lacking a measure of manhood because you make statements and run from explaining them. It has nothing to do with my request. It was your statement. When asked to explain you reply with some BS about where my answer lies? Who are you Gandhi? Or you are simply childish. You made the statement. Now be a man about it. Or don't be.

    Your very much WRONG sir....FOOD...Necessary medicine many things you take for granted today "COULD" fall under his scenario...

    Only the weak and/or the ignorant do what they are told without question.



    You sir imho are an empty shell with nothing of substance A man with loyalty to nothing is the least trustworthy of all

    I have a natural distrust for anything thats predicated on profit and money for they create insidious greed which leads to the entire gamut of crime.
    If I had to choose between the military and a corporation in the scenario that the thread states..... it would most certainly be the military without hesitation

    What he is is a person that has never been put to the test and pretends to know exactly what to do in situations he couldn't possibly understand. I call them classroom veterans who swim in the theories of life without practice. Those who would do something "in a millisecond" are usually the ones that crumble and cower and wait for others to do for them. They are also the type that shoot up Batman Premiers and really have no ideals. Or live in log cabins and make bombs.

    Of course, if he is from a former dictatorship or former loser nation in history his lack of pride in his country is understandable.

    Loyalty to one's ideals is 'nothing of substance'?

    I take it then you either have no ideals or your loyalty to them is fleeting.

    My loyalty to mine are (hopefuly) absolute.


    Have a nice day.

    Or who served in his country's military and has run his own business since he was 25 and has owned over a dozen homes and well over 30 cars/trucks/motorcycles (3 Corvette's, 4 Camaro's, 3 Mustang's, Dodge Ram SRT-10 2 door, etc.)...and he's not even 50 yet.

    I detest braggarts...but I felt compelled.


    Like I typed above...you ARE funny.


    Have a nice day.

    Then I would say that your expressed idea of things don't match your history and you've lost your ability to truly own your own ideals. You have fallen lock stock in line with the theme of the day and are being foolish about it.

    "run his own business since he was 25 and has owned over a dozen homes and well over 30 cars/trucks/motorcycles."

    Only in America. And I'm funny? You are unable to recognize what you wouldn't have anywhere else. While you boast on your own ability to achieve you dismiss that this is only possible because your government and country preserves that ability. But **** that right? Makes you feel good thinking otherwise.

    I can imagine the branch of "miltary."

    Like I stated before, anyone that makes statements like this has never been put to the test or your ideals are simple in nature and do not demand a courage to stand by them. You have the luxury of being self-righteous and dellusional. Also....only in America.

    I have lived in Canada - off and on - since I was 25 (I could also live/vote in Great Britain, in addition to America/Canada, if I wished).

    My business is run exclusively in Canada...always has been.


    You ARE funny.


    Have a nice day.
