You just earned 1,000 points! I get sick of people quoting that bogus
amendment and not picking up on that condition.

They have to want to escape, right? What would really sell would be a
way to enjoy the benefits of escaping while not actually escaping.

Those two words, "United States", do not signify land. To signify the
land using those two words, you need two additional words, "of America".
The use of the two words is not the same as the use of the four words.
Guess how many people are aware of THAT!

The ignorant parents are cajoled into waiving rights and making false
statements under penalty of perjury, often out of psychologically
induced feelings of a need to conform. The Lemming Principle. When the
18 year-olds have a short time to rectify the situation, few are aware

When I was in senior year of high school, I saw a concerted effort at
brainwashing in my school, and saw where it would lead, so I undertook
to brainwash myself to my own choice of programming before they could
impose theirs upon me. I'm glad I did, because it does last, and I'm
glad to have selected my own program rather than have theirs imposed. I
bought a book on self-hypnosis for $1 and quit smoking too.
