Re: Mary < **The Revised Mason-Dixon Line**
Posted by johncodie on 8/08/03
Forget about the line, Mary won't say if she is to the north of the line or the south of the line. Focus on the building technologies of the
South and the North. However with the European's having the normal 97 degree heat loads and new associated problems, we will soon see a rapid
influx of Brits. We weren't very smart when we started draining all the swamps and reducing the abundance of some of the best mold resistant
cyprus trees. We weren't very smart when we depleted the huge vast forest, and huge hearth pine's that provided the major beams for the
majority of the plantation homes remaining today. We weren't very smart when we started planting shrubs right up next to our house's and built
first floor very close to grade to avoid natural draft ventilation, and depend on air conditioning when catching natural breezes would have
sufficed. We were'nt very smart when we quit daily detoxification "southern sweat" and quit supplementing with herbs, natural southern sweet
tea. We were'nt very smart when we quit reading the Consitution and the Bill of Rights and started depending on our attorny's to tell us what
our Constitutional Rights are. We were'nt very smart when we stopped learing how to fight and standing up for ourselves. I have been accused
of being rude, crude, and politicaly incorrect more than once in my life time. I did see the defense counsel today, and he did not want to
make eye contact. He may have not wanted to ruin his concentration, or could be he thinks there a laws to protect him from being called out
into the public streets to defend himself. I beleive it is called out west justice, and as we continue to have the freedom to bear arms, we
still remain the right to confront those that have violated the laws. I find the first admendment rights to be alot more damaging than
dueling, or gun slinging. It's getting close to high noon defense counsel, and if your too chicken to come out, the local citizens of this
fair city will drag you out to face your accussed.
