RANT MODE ON
A news article about lead in Christmas ornaments got me thinking about the old
days when we decorated our Christmas trees with pure lead tinsel and got mazes
with mercury in them as toys. The whole fricken house was painted with lead
paint to boot for Christ sake. The generation that was raised under those
conditions developed the jet and rocket engines, harnessed nuclear energy, put
man on the moon, and invented the transistor and IC chip.
Since we took away the lead and mercury WTF has the new generation done? The
moon has not been colonized, we have a fleet of space shuttles that would be
considered "historic" if they were cars, and a decent battery has yet to be
The only conclusion that I can come up with is that we have gotten a lot
stupider since we have removed the lead and mercury.

is more sensitive to the needs of the servants. Oops I mean taxpayers,

realize that we are all gods in our on right and do away with
judgementalism and all the other ism's that plagued are once great
society when it started and later blossomed into prosperity with honor
and integrity. (while Africans starved) Yes we have a long way to go.
But we can get there there by being attentive to our bold political
leaders and important special intrest groups that have been godsends
from third world countries.
But if you are a Dodge owner as myself, You probably realize that
everyone who ate carrots in 1776 is now dead and we have no hope for
any of the above to solve anything.
Worse yet there is always that old crowd that lived with lead and
still murmurs about liberty.
