    Re: Last 24 Hours of Drama

    Politics and religion (same difference to me) discussions are always heated and they may become outright dangerous. I was born and raised in a formerly communist country. We took our discussions to the streets and it was indeed dangerous. Stones, and even bottles filled with gasoline are no match against fully equipped military vehicles, tanks and forces doped up with some drugs.

    The country is now free, but people... I'm not sure. It took me a while to realize that politicians are just puppets of big industry, and they will use any tricks (including religious feelings, since religion is such a great tool to keep people in line) to get elected, so they can serve their corporate masters, or their own egos at best. I know of few exceptions to this.

    I doesn't matter whether it's Russia, US or Nazi Germany - the ones who get screwed are "we the people". It's been like that from times immemorial and I see no hope of change (except for a short lived one), unless the discussions indeed are taken to the streets. I am not advocating it, and being somewhat of an older fart now, I think I wouldn't do what I was doing as a student.

    I think I saw a light though. It was the light in my garage. It helped me see that the empty spaces can be filled with some nice woodworking tools, and that I could do something both interesting and useful, instead of giving ratings to those who lie to me through their teeth - the so called media.

    I have a TV network at home. You can watch TV from any of the 3 TV sets and all 12 computers. I haven't watched TV since February and I don't miss it one bit.

    As someone said - politicians should be executed just because they want to be politicians. No matter what label they want to fool us with - liberal, conservative, christian, muslim, green, pink or translucent. Since killing politicians doesn't appear to be legal I'll stick to woodworking instead.

    To those who decide to vote in their elections, in whichever country you live - I wish you all the best of luck in electing THE candidate who you prefer to screw you, as opposed to all the other candidates who you would hate to be screwed by.

      Flat-Rate vs. Time and Material

      Heck if there was enough money in it I might consider pulling a George Foreman and come out of retirement with a K-500. It would be the only machine there which could clean 1.25" through 10" linHeck if there was enough money in it I might consider pulling a George Foreman and come es.

        there's always the next roundup

        i doubt there will ever be a real heads up competition, but we all had a "blaster" doing it

        as noted i don't remember being in any of the political debates.

        snake debates, yes

        remember that this is a tool forum, construction forum,
        not a politics forum

          Mark, you gotta fit a mole in there somewhere
          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

              That's a great idea it might even bring plumber back to the site.
