Because at this point every "ism" that me and my grandparents have seen over the years has gone horribly wrong resulting in the deaths of millions of people. Over the long term some may have worked out in the beta stage but in the alpha stage you end up with a charismatic leader and few people who will do anything and kill anyone to stay in power to see there true religion thru and that included the history of the first world western hemisphere countries of USA,Canada& Mexico.

and BTW I am not supporting or fighting any ism for that matter because they tend to make me late for supper- "We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!” Bilbo Baggins,

I fought terrorism. I guess thats an ism.

Primarily I was fighting to keep people from blowing up children by making myself a target. I never agreed with any of it but we had good leadership and good men doing the right thing.


The ism thing is true though dude.

terrorism is using terror by sudden acts of violence be it bombings,poisonings or mass killings to get the target population (including your own people) to adopt a political position by scaring the bejesus outta them. Terrorism does not have to kill but it has to have enough violent effects to gain attention for your cause .

Oh I know. The locals in Iraq called our special forces the "American Taliban".

This is what Wikipedia is for.
Yes I know but when the protestors (paid?) cant even come up with a coherent reason why are they protesting and what they stand for its gets to be tiresome. Especially when I now have to walk 4 blocks around them due to police barricades get to the liquor store and then the train station. I will talk to both Nazis and Antifa and Labor Union or anyone else to learn and support there right to assemble as long as we can have a short coherent conversation. It often happens to be the case I might be in mid sentence and the leader comes over and tells the protestor "don't talk to him". WTF?

It's a mistake to think that the aim of all mobilization and street organizing is just 'protest'. Different ballgame, calls for different precautions.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

If I had one more freight hop left in me, maybe two, I would take an NS 27A (auto rack) to Macon, get shuttled to Warner Robins to visit my friends since I haven't seen them for quite a while, then head back to Macon. Next up, maybe I would stay put under a skirted piggyback heading southbound to Jacksonville just to explore the Macon/Valdosta districts.
