    I am warming back up to the money system.

    My phone keeps misspelling Pagosa, and yes we drove there in a pickup truck, got there in three hours, fished all day till 7:00, got up today fished till 11:00 and drove home.

    It was closer to 65 wild trout from 10 to 17", probably the best day fishing in my life.

    And the sale of the salt, ore, etc produced money so the wars were for the resources which converted to money.

    But even if there were no money at stake, they would still have fought over the salt! (Running to his maps to figure out were he fished. Was he in a boat?)

    Indeed. We can pontificate about the Money system, or we can do a deep dive on the important issues.

    Tight lines forever Ed; even though I will always believe that Energy Credits are just another currency unit I am happy for you and your son son for your fishing trip.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    No, but I do believe that our foreign policy is not something that should just be blindly accepted because, "It's about not worrying about that which I can't control." That is not to say I agree with his conclusions or his remedy.

    Seriously if you do not want to discuss this stuff with him, there are less rude ways to express it.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
