    It means that we haven't had a really significant drought/famine/anything like that in this country because of speculation. Better cultivation methods and other things have played a significant role as well, but because of speculation we've survived when those things have happened.

Last I checked, there's a job available for about everybody willing to pick up a hammer. One might even need to relocate but apparently, the government is required to provide jobs to everybody in their most desired location.
    You gotta be kidding me You are really gonna bitch about folks that worked and got layed off?


    Last you checked there's a job available for about everybody willing to pick up a hammer? What world are you living in?

    The various militia groups in the US, when people go out in the middle of the day and play soldier instead of going to a real job, they tend to be on disability collecting money from the government for their "bad" back that prevents them from working, but not hanging out in the woods playing with toys

    that might be true but I didn't have them in mind. I suspect I am far better versed on the subject of armed America than you are
