Billy the Kid rides through America's nation-building mythology like an enigmatic outlaw angel of retribution.


Feral psychopathic killer, callous criminal, nice kid in bad company or tragic avenger delivering rough justice to a corrupt establishment? The teenager who sang at Sunday school with a lovely tenor or the otherworldly child warrior possessed of the lethal rage of an Achilles?


Whatever William Henry Bonney was in life, in death he was transformed into an incandescent archetype.


Billy the Kid's legend is forged from the American fascination with guns and violence, from a revolutionary mistrust of authority and from the lawless frontier myth that frames the nation's self-perception.

Is America truely free now? Is guns more of a negative impact than a positive one?

How does Americas self perception conjoin with its perception of other countries?

American psyche is not that powerful when it needs England to hold its hand in going to illegal wars.


Wisdom is not about adding tomato to a fruit salad, true wisdom is in the tasting.

I do not htink guns are more of a negative impact than a positive impact here or in any of the other industrialized nations.

You mean like being the leader of the free world?

Doesn't someone think every war is illegal in some manner?

So it is more wise to taste a fruit salad including tomatoes?

If you mention freeworld then you are misguided. We are cut short of freedom by the false flag of terror. If you cannot see the powers to be are either fulfilling the prophecies or are culpable to them you havn't read revelations.

Screw the tomato in the fruit salad.

Are you asying the democratic countries are not more free than those controlled by dictators and theocracies?

That would seem to depned on your definition of freedom as some believe only anarchy is true freedom.

How about some of the other religious tenets instead?

That would seem to appraoch sexual deviation.

If tomatoes had their way they would be no more wars. And yes I've confided in one. As I opened my mouth he conceded in death I should brush my teeth.

The Tomato Garden
An old Italian man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his Tomato garden but it was very hard work as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincenzo, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.
Dear Vincenzo – I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I am getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the garden for me. Love, Papa.
A few days later he received a letter from his son…
Dear Papa – I’d do anything for you Papa, except dig up that garden. That’s where I buried the bodies. Love, Vinnie.
At 4 am the next morning, FBI and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. The same day the old man received another letter from his son.
Dear Papa – Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances. Love, Vinnie.
