Me too Tomas, and I think I have at least a decade on you, if I don't get 
shot for refusing the shot, I'll be 87 in early October. I found a daily 
St. Johns Wort in my pilltainer helps to tame the raging bull in me. But 
not enough to make me take back what I didn't sell. :)

Already happening, sorry to say.

Most of the above is mans own inhumanity to man, but being forced to work 
is not necessarily abuse, it was the rule in the house I grew up in with 
a stepfather, who was first an honest man and taught me by example in 
that dept, so one of the rules was I went to school or I got a job. I 
helped him build a house on a cut off corner of a field my grandfather 
gave us in the aftermath of WW_II in 1946, and at 12 years old, I wired 
that house for electricity.  And when I turned 21 and could, I thought 
enough of the man who raised me to change my name to match his. That is 
respect. And it didn't cost an arm and leg for the adoption papers which 
in Iowa, are a legal racket for the lawyers.

Back at-cha Tomas.
