Born in Chicago Cook County in 1948. Moved to Florida in 58. Construction worker most of life. Tried to teach third grade but realized I did not believe in what was being pushed as truth in 1971. I did take a class in 1966 (economics 101) and stood up in class on third class meeting and asked the teacher if she was a prophet and that she really thought Gold would always be $37.50 an oz, and that the United States would never have another recession. Dropped the class that day which made me qualify for the draft which is another story that will not be included here. Am now retired Operating Engineer Local #3 with fixed income and payed for house on Maui and a little savings. Have been against the Progressive income tax for next to forty years and strongly suggest folks get familiar with fairtax.org. First heard of Sorros from a Jewish lawyer in New York over twenty years ago who asked me if I believed Sorros was the antichrist. It was told me at that time that he had made the claim that he was indeed the same. He is still in the running. In the recent election both Obama and Hillary made the claim that they were progressives. If you do not know what a progressive is then you do not understand United States politics. Progressives make up the majority of both the republican and democratic parties. The ultimate goal of the progressives are to institute a one party system that is diametrically opposed to the original republic that was formed by G, Washington and friends. It is the stated intent of progressive to take down out current form of government and replace it. I believe that they are in their final push. Bob Schlumberger - Since the above has been written the Maui home has been sold and I have moved back to Florida and bought a home in Cape Coral. Here I am not part of the minority and the people are far more friendlier. Cape Coral has recently made some list as a good place to be.
