March 22, 2013

Oh I forgot, the value actually went down a bit from a few years ago.

Mineral rights went with the house. They can do as they please with them. My daughter will be living in Paris so she can pay the taxes.

There must have been a jump in value so you decided to cash out. Did you sell the mineral rights with the hut or did you retain them?

Be careful when you go to France; with that 6 figure income, you might be taxed pretty hard.

So you would agree then that an undocumented immigrant is entitled to all the protects of the Constitution?

Jerry:

I agree.

The Bill of Rights derive from the philosophy of Natural Law.

"Our firearm rights should belong to all people, not just Americans."

Agreed.

As should ALL the rights protected by the Constitution.

Japan is also a great example of too much gov't involvement in the economy.....they have been in a recession for nearly 20 years and President Obama's economic policies are very similar to Japan's.

Our firearm rights should belong to all people, not just Americans.

It is your human right to be able to defend yourself and your property.

" Do you remember when US marines landed in Mogadishu and the US press had set up shop and broadcast it live. Pretty surreal..."

Thank goodness we made them so "free" that you can't swing a stick anywhere in the country without knocking over an RPG or Kalashnikov.

Hi jerry.. it seems like an easy fix for enigma or those who want absolute freedom. Somalia and Haiti are only two examples, I'm sure we could find others for enigma to choose from.. one could only hope bobbie2 would take note and buy the mud hut next to enigma.

Hi enigma.. if you think our government is so oppressive, take jerrys suggestion and move to Somalia.. or Haiti, if you want something nearer.

Yes I do fear being shot, not a fear that I won't go there but it is in the back of my mind. Off Topic. What did you think of France? We are planning on going there next year and I just wanted your opinions.

You actually fear being shot? While I think that it is a good idea to be prepared to defend yourself, I don't walk around in fear and you shouldn't either. Your chances of being shot are quite low unless you are a low-life. Your chances of being killed are just as high in these other countries, it's just that you may be stabbed to death rather than shot. At least in this country you have the right to protect yourself in the event it does become an issue. I've never been to Japan or Australia, but I have been to Iceland, France and Canada. While they were very interesting, I was always happy that I didn't have to stay there. People from all over the world, including Japan and Australia, come here for the freedom. Maybe taking away our freedom is part of some anti-immigration plot.

Saw this story this morning, absolutely disgusting. However the gun did not act alone, it was sadly the instrument wielded by a deranged and vile individual(who happened to be around 10, I believe).

I'm glad to see that you're finally seeing it. You don't have to be beaten and killed to be oppressed. When the government limits basic human rights, that's oppression. Controlling healthcare, as all of these countries do is oppression. Taking 50% of what you earn is oppression. Using the tax code to control behavior is oppression. Oh wait, we have that here. We need to get rid of that so we can go back to being free. Oh and I almost forgot, telling you that only the government can have guns is oppression.

" Same goes on why someone would hit "agree". Does this mean a person agrees that I asked the question or disagrees that I asked it?"

If it makes you feel better, I actually agreeed because I would also like to know what was meant by "raise the population". Seems like kind of a strange statement to make.

See my question below - Why would someone hit "disagree" on a simple question asking for clarification to a statement? Same goes on why someone would hit "agree". Does this mean a person agrees that I asked the question or disagrees that I asked it?

As compared to the relative "freedom" in places like Yemen, Serbia, Cyprus, and Iraq, where guns are everywhere.

Ah yes, those bloodthirsty dictatorships in Japan, the UK, and New Zealand. It's hard to imagine how the citizens of those countries can stand the oppression.

"I think what the writer was trying to say is, that if you don't want freedom, you should go somewhere else."

So much for your thinking prowess. He said that if you don't want guns live somewhere else. There was nothing said about freedoms, just guns.

No, but thanks anyway enigma. Been to both and they are beautiful places. Walk the streets of Auckland and Tokyo at night and never once felt fear of being shot. However I could not feel the same as I walked down N Rampart St in New Orleans. Or High Street in Williamsport.
