So, by 2042 when White America becomes a minority will you still feel that way? Immigrants from all over the world will be part of a majority melting pot at that point, not a minority. They will control the guns.

Probably longest-lived thread in BWOT history.

Makes you wonder.

Get Uncle GS or Shane to provide a guided tour of Primordial BWOT.

During much of that year I was in a government contract that didn't let me play on the outside of the interwebtubes.

Shane?? What would that noob know?

MRTIKKET was the undisputed lord and master of BWOT before the invasion. He did not take kindly to being unceremoniously knocked off his throne, as I recall.

Other than him, the only guys I recall from Page 1 are jamminjames and Storm.

ozbenzhead is still around, perhaps not on here but on our Aussie site and he lives about an hour away from me. We catch up from time to time, he has an impressive array of MB's and knowledge.

He is currently compiling the history of the Crawford wagons.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

It isn't a question of feelings. It's a question of historical fact.
