I wonder how many of these “conservative” commentators actually supported the original Patriot Act of 2001. All of this snooping stuff was in there too and broadened the government’s powers to snoop on you. Heck, they even wanted to know what books you checked out of your library accroding to this bill. The snooping has been going on in much broader terms since 2001 under GW Bush.
More and more Alex Jones doesn’t seem all that paranoid now, does he?

This article also fails to mention Obama’s executive order that allows for the full nationalization of every industry, food and water supply of the U.S. should an “emergency” arise.
"Those in power need checks and restraints lest they come to identify the common good for their own tastes and desires, and their continuation in office as essential to the preservation of the nation." - - Justice William O. Douglas
And with Obama' executive over-reach and the " Let's Have A Revolution " crowd of anarchists in his camp, have a feeling that " emergency" is in the works. Think the anti-capitalist OWS camp-in obstructions in Democrat-controlled cities were the Obama radicals' test wave for a future , more violent , " emergency." These guys are clever, devious but also transparent .
So we are already Communist.
Can you say MANUFACTURED EMERGENCY? I would't trust this POS as far as I could throw Moochell (and that ain't very far!!!) - we're just on hold until his 'disaster' happens and he can declare martial law, taking over everything he doesn't already have! Our troops need to be ready to stand up and help take this country back. Odumbo, too, declare his loyalty to this country and the constitution -and he's used it for 4 years to blow his nose on. Our troops will ACTUALLY stand up for we, the people! They don't like this worthless imposter either!!!

There are certainly a lot of college grads who major in useless things like women’s studies and african american studies, but even those who are skilled enough in degrees like engineering or accounting can’t find jobs either because when they graduate they’re told by the job requirements or the hiring company that they don’t have enough experience to qualify for the position. Companies certainly don’t seem to want to invest in someone who has no experience in the job field.
So what’s the point of even going to college if an employer doesn’t care that you did the college time and got the training for the field; just whether or not you got experience in that field?
Exactly. I just mentioned this earlier. It seems what they really want is someone with years of experience but only pay them entry level pay, so how exactly do they get that experience? Go look at some of the ads on Monster and elsewhere.
Yes, but really, if you started at an entry-level position and did that for a few years, wouldn't you then have both "experience" and a job along the way? Just a thought.
When I graduated from college with a medical technology degree in 1976, it was the most frustrating words I could imagine" you don't have enough experience". My answer "hire me and give me the opportunity to prove myself" fell on deft ears only learning later the job went to friends or family with little or no experience. Today, applying for a position is so dehumanized because the majority of jobs available are processed by filling out online applications with no face to face interviews if you're lucky enough to even get one. If you don't know someone within a corporation (family or friends) it will be very difficult for qualified applicants to find work. Obama will employ Cloward and Piven theology to bring down what's left of our nation, especially with his cronies in higher education devaluing American exceptionalism. Good luck America. A lot of these kids in college elected Obama because they wanted their birth control, free phones and college loans paid for by government. A very sad and scary situation.

It’s certainly curious that Obamacare calls for funding of a little known agency called Ready Reserve Corps whose mission is to aide in times of disaster. The agency itself has been around since the 1946 and amended to or restructed since then; most notoriously under Obamacare.
Something else of interest however is the newly created FEMA Youth Corps. They’re trained to give aid in their communities and undergo periodic training. They can be activated at any time like a reserves soldier and are essentially a private army that answers only to FEMA.
It is possible that Iran could become a Christian nation if the nonMuslims say enough is enough! with God at their side. A similar thing happened in Romania, 1989. The seeds of revolution were already present, but the final straw was when Laszlo Tokes, a pastor, was being evicted by the Ceausescu government for criticizing it. The people rallied around the pastor and riots broke out all over the country driving Ceausescu out after they got the army on the side of the people. Romania formed a new government that favored individual freedoms, peaceful dissent, and religious freedom after that.
Quite an inspiring piece of history during a time when everyone else thought the darkness of Communism would remain forever over Europe. Unfortunately the West hasn’t learned the lessons that Communism and socialism don’t work.

What if they’re not training for protecting consulates or against al Quaeda? What if they’re really training for civil unrest here at home?
Think about the facts:
DHS has been stocking enough ammo to outfit many small armies (1 billion rounds of ammo), including hollow point bullets which can be used on its own people (us) but banned for use in war by the Geneva Convention we adhere to.
Congress recently passed the NDAA with “indefinite detention clauses” in which anyone suspicious of being affiliated with terrorists can be round up. No trial, no charges. DHS considers those who are “preppers,” Constitutionalists, Ron Paul supporters, those who don’t support the “official” stories and government reports (think what you hear on MSNBC, CNN, etc) , and pro-lifers, to be terrorists. Case in point: Remember how Brandon Raub was rounded up for his FB posts? You don’t have to agree with them, but he was considered a threat because he questioned the “official reports” of things.
FEMA camps. Yes, they’re real.
The government is stockpiling mass amounts of food.
What if al Quaeda is all just smoke and mirrors? After all we’ve been supporting them in Libya and Syria.
I think this administration is responsible for what happened in Benghazi. If they don’t care about its own consulates, how much more do you think they’ll care about us? When society collapses, governments protect themselves, not you.
What I’m curious about is what does the gove

I know what you’re talking about. Those bullets are IR guided like a heat-seeking missile. They can go around corners and change fligjt direction if the target moves. They’re fired from a special rifle which I believe is beginning to be fielded in our deployments in Iraq, but not sure about that.
“Oppa” means literally “older brother” but is better translated as “boyfriend.” Oppa Gangnam Style (as a phrase) basically means boyfriend is very rich and showy with his wealth (think rapper with the bling and spending money like the Fed)

Anybody hear about the new RNC rule change? The ones about how the RNC committee can call a meeting and change whatever rules it doesn’t like as well as allow candidates to eject other candidates’ state delegates he/she doesn’t like? Some say the changes were aimed at Ron Paul supporters but it’s deeper than that. This change affects future Tea Party candidates too because the RNC RINO’s are afraid of the new people coming in. People who actually stand for traditional America. Makes me feel like I’m living in a Banana Republic where the candidates are chosen for you, the people and even the election itself is won by whome the establishment wants to win.
From what I understand so far, it is still an attempt to change rules. Still pisses me off and it sounds like something that Dem-wits would do. Rush went into great detail a few days ago about this. I hope that it continues to fail.
Just like the Bush 43 Admin, I expect a Romney Administration to provide a good number of let downs. But, I don't expect a Romney Admin to scare the absolute Sierra Hotel India Tango out of me on a daily basis.
Yes, it is designed so that the "non-existent" Establishment can control who the nominee is...
Basically it will turn the Republican party into the Other Progressive Party...
blame the extremists in the paulbot group not wanting to let go. I think some of them are nuts, too.
Should Obama retain the presidency, it will mark the end of the GOP. I will not be joining a third party, but rather a new party will displace the GOP, making it a third party. Sarah Palin has recently talked of this possiblity. I've been saying it for years.

First you have to fill out this government form, Form No. 12435-0488, then mail it through the postal service (not responsible for lost mail) and wait 1+ years (due to backlog of other free lunch requests) for approval via Form No. 453878-04899. Once approved take this form to the Federal Free Lunch Building and wait in the line going around the block since there’s only one person available to distribute all the free lunches.

Here’s some interesting coincidences about this horrible tragedy while we’re talking “conspiracy theories.” The police chief of Aurora is Dan Oates, someone who worked in the NYPD for 21 years and became head of the NYPD intelligence dept. before he left there in 2001. Now Mayor Bloomberg (who became mayor of NYC in 2002) is calling for talks on new gun control while the UN Arms Trade Treaty is being drafted at this time. The treaty will be completed and ready for our gun hating president to sign on July 27.
Not saying there’s any sort of “false flag” conspiracy here, but they are interesting coincidences.

Slew is also an archaic past tense of the word “slay.” As in “Cain slew his brother Abel.” It is used correctly however in this article also.

I’m not one of those “burn the farm and eat veggies” animal rights activists, but I this kind of treatment for any animal whether you’re gonna eat it or not is just plain cruel. I think this farm should be shut down for this kind of treatment.
What’s the point of voting if the votes are going to be rigged? I will still vote but I question just how much it will really matter or even how if it’ll be counted. The 2010 elections had vote rigging across the U.S. It’s said that Sharon Angle should have won Nevada, other Tea Party favorites of that election barely won, and some who did win had their wins overturned and their votes “recounted.” Even in this current primary there are rumors of vote rigging in which votes for Santorum and Paul are miscounted or not counted at all. Napolitano of Freedom Watch was right in the rant that got him fired: “What if the Republicans and Democrats are two different sides of the same coin?”

I remember reading somewhere about who gets on the No-fly List and why they get on it. I’m sure some of the people on it are legitimate terrorists or legitimately suspected terrorists, but not all of them. People are also placed on it if they publicly criticize the TSA, resist their gropings, or complain about TSA actions. Remember the infamous “Don’t touch my junk” guy? IHe’s on that list now. An airline pilot who was deputized to carry a gun by the TSA and exposed airport security flaws had his federally issued gun confiscated and his conceiled carry permit revoked. Just a couple of examples of how the TSA treats those who question them. And they’re creeping into the highway system now while our spineless Congress and state legislators do nothing about it.

“When the government fears the people, we have freedom. When the people fear the government we have tyranny.” This quote sounds like a paraphrase of what V said in the movie “V for Vendetta. I believe the exact quote is, “The people should not fear their government. The government should fear its people.” You should check out the comic book series the movie was based on. A very excellent read, just as good as the movie.
