I think a first step is developing an honest and effective review and debate procedure for all major governmental decisions. Isn't that what regular order in Congress is supposed to achieve? Public debates on the floor followed by voting from our representatives? Isn't that the purpose of C-span? T...

Many of the so called democracies are really under a dictatorship of the political class, quite a far cry from the vision of the founding fathers and the standards set forth in Paper 71 and in several sections of the UB, betrayal of the public trust being clearly highlighted as a heinous offense. I...

I wonder the results if we simply required transparency and enforced accountability and eliminated personal greed incentives and rewards in politics and public service?? I agree, and this is where an evolutionary change is required, because the political class (as it now stands) is never going to v...

Not exactly good timing for starting this thread. I'm on Paper 70 and when I have finished paper 71, I'll throw in my 2 cents.

This is not a political post by any means, but this is quite a statement, a benchmark for "a practical and efficient form of representative government". Any civilized comment :lol: is very welcome. Thanks! 71:2.9 (802.3) There are ten steps, or stages, to the evolution of a practical and e...

Regarding Cooper's Ferry, a friend from the Nez Perce tribe posted this article today https://www.wallowa.com/news/ancient-nez-perce-village-site-yields-oldest-date-of-human/article_c65b59a8-ccd3-11e9-8e90-bf84f5db49e6.html?fbclid=IwAR0mief2VyPQaQ3XUfcKS_IHBmGhcY_BrrxYXIHdEqnWgQtvdi_bdcw0x7Q The tri...

no, those things happened later...probably 30-35 thousand years ago This so upsets the doctrinal apple cart ha ha!

2) I was also curious about this guy Graham Hancock, and if anyone here on the forum had heard of him. There are so many wannabe "authorities" out there, and many of them just seem to be promoting themselves and selling books, but every now and then someone comes along calling attention t...

Thanks MaryJo for asking for clarification. I posted the video for two reasons: 1) That open minded scientists or even pseudo-science investigators are seeing obvious evidence of human occupation of North America way before the "accepted" dates, opening the door for speculation and for som...
