    JohnofTexas – When I was a child in school we learned the differences between the U.S. and communist China and Russia. I remember clearly the pride on my teachers face when she told us that in America, we do not raid people’s homes in the middle of the night and take them away for ‘crimes’. Everyone is assumed to be innocent until they have been proven guilty. My…. how things have changed
    Our country has been “fundamentally transformed”. And almost half of the population is just fine with it. A good part of the other half is too busy working to pay bills and taxes to be able to do anything about it.

    I’ve watched and listened to Glenn since his CNN days. He was fired up, and seemed to have inside information. He also had the will and bravery to get that information out to the people. It seemed to me that Glenn believed that if he could only let people know what was coming, and what was happening to cause it, that Americans would stand up and defend their country. However, that hasn’t happened. Just under half of the people here WANT big government and don’t mind tyranny and corruption as long as it doesn’t directly affect them personally. I think Glenn is losing hope and has turned to religion for comfort. I know how he feels. Whether we like it or not, this country will never be the same again. And that’s a damn shame.

    Hi RJJ , I also remember being a kid and having free reign to wander the neighborhood with my friends, and also walking a mile to school every day. But back then there weren’t predators watching and waiting the chance to snatch us up to use as victims for Youtube videos. Pedophiles and murderers have rights these days, victims do not. I have three precious grandchildren. Someone has to be standing outside waiting for them to board or get off their school bus every day, school board rules. There are literally hundreds of registered sex offenders in our area. HUNDREDS! When society decides to stop tolerating sexual predators, specifically those that prey on children, and puts them away for life, then maybe we can give our grandchildren the right to be outside and safe. As I write this, law enforcement is searching for a predator that attempted to snatch a young child less than a mile away from where my grandchildren live. She got away and gave a good description of him.

    Okay, I guess I’m having a ‘senior day’ today, but I just can’t figure out how you can get on a DHS list from using cash unless the store owner already knows you personally and turns you in. I hate to let my ignorance become public, but somebody please enlighten me!

    Use the “shopper” cards to purchase meat and veggies. Pay cash for everything else. You still save money and Big Brother doesn’t know jack about your real eating habits.
    The scheme at the grocery store where I shop is getting a % off the total cost AND then getting 10 to 20 cents off each gallon of gas if you fill up in their gas station. The % off the food is enticing, but the money saved on the gas is irresistible.

    Wolfgang – I try to use cash for most of my purchases these days because of all the data mining. I do have some questions though… if I only use cash and don’t give out my personal information, how can the store report me for suspicious activity? They have no information about me. Are the stores sending their surveillance tapes to the Fibbies? I too think that this digital footprint mess may be the wide open door that brings in the Mark of the Beast.

    I believe that all over the world countries are going to be splitting up into religious and ideological enclaves, America included. We cannot all “get along”. It just doesn’t seem to work very well. This seems to be the overall way things ebb and flow in history. Countries coalesce around a strong leader or political system which gobbles up land and people until it reaches a tipping point where it can no longer govern them all. Then comes division, petty wars and finally another cohesion around another strong man or political ideal. Wash, rinse, repeat….
    Wasn’t it a Chinese general who postulated that the U.S. will split into five distinct districts based on ethnic lines?
    I think we are in the pre-dawn of really scary times.

    ghost – Perhaps you should take your own advice. My information comes from someone whose son lives and works in China. She was visiting him and became ill. Her chinese hosts mistakenly took her to the local “healthcare” available to chinese citizens. One step up from a witch doctor. When the authorities found out, she was quickly taken to the hospital where Western visitors were supposed to go.
    I’ve noticed that you really like to call people names don’t you…. How immature of you, LOL

    It seems to me that we are devolving into “Chinese” health care here in the states. One system for foreigners and elites that uses modern western medicine and another system for the peasants that depends on dried herbs and animal parts. I guess the military and veterans don’t fall into the “elite” category according to the government.

    The thing that bothers me the most about this statement is that an elected leader in this country would feel free to make it. Apparently there are enough people now that either approve of communism or are blissfully unaware of the horrors perpetrated by communist governments. Or is it simply “cool” to be a “communist” these days? Shock value perhaps? Desperate for attention?

    Tall – It has the feel of an old fashioned bushwacking doesn’t it?

    The real problem for progressives with what Mr. Bundy said is that;
    1. He used the words “slavery” and “slaves” without prior approval from the relevant authorities.
    2. He is an elderly white man and therefore not allowed to address the subject of “slavery” in any form except that which promotes the current politically correct language.
    3. He did not use approved words such as “African American” when referring to certain people.
    All of the above offenses can and will be used to discredit and marginalize Mr. Bundy. There is nothing he or any of his supporters can do from this point on that will not be countered with the statement “He is a racist!”. This is a final and comprehensive dismissal of any and all other issues that have been at the forefront of this confrontation between Mr. Bundy and the Federal Government. To be labeled “racist” is to lose any and all credibility you now possess or will possess in the future. Common sense, honesty, patriotism and honor have no bearing on the discussion going forward. The “R word” has been used.

    Exactly. Voluntary enlistment and you can leave it behind you when you wish. Unlike socialism/communism in various countries of the world where you are born a slave and you will die a slave unless you are lucky enough to find a way out. Use to be you could come to America to be free…. but those same chains are being slowly wound around our necks now while most of us sleep.

    Well said AmericanTrucker! And they should deduct from his “fees owed”, the money lost by Mr Bundy from the cattle that died being run to death by the helicopters. About $1500 per head I understand.

    public1 – As long as those big strong black men carrying guns are conservatives and patriots, you’re damn right we’d be ok with it! Col. Alan West comes immediately to mind. And not only him, all those strong black men who are serving in our military right now and who are also fed up with losing their rights as American citizens. This isn’t about race, it’s about rights.

    Augustus – I believe you have distilled the issue down to its base. When the government is seen by the citizens as unjust and unlawful, anger will follow in the wake of each injustice, perceived or actual. The pot has very nearly reached boiling point. Maybe we can turn the fire down for a while longer.

    outlaw – God does not fight our battles. Even in the bible the Hebrews had to do the fighting and dying to win the land. 50 million people died in WWII. Tens of thousands died in the American Civil War. When evil rears its head, men have to stand up and fight it. Yes I believe that God will help when help is asked for, but make no mistake, expecting God to defeat your enemy while you sit and contemplate “peaceful lights” will only get you chains and slavery. I don’t advocate violence. I don’t want anyone to be injured or die. But there may come a time when there is only the choice of freedom or chains. Choose well.

    I was raised in a time when suicide brought shame, pain and deep sorrow to the families left behind, along with the strong belief that the suicide went straight to hell. In many places, the suicide could not be buried in consecrated ground, but was buried just outside the cemetery.
    Nowadays it seems to be somewhat “trendy”, especially with young people. What a difference 50 years makes! How terrible it is that these people have no hope. How utterly depraved it is that society and government paves the way for their destruction.
    How do we convince these people that they are important and necessary to the rest of us?

    @puravida56 – It has become a race problem because ghetto blacks view everything through a racial lens these days. Smokey is right, when you are third or fourth generation welfare culture, your view of right and wrong is skewed. Add into the mix that hatred of “whitey” is taught to ghetto black children from birth and you have a toxic stew that is spilling over the cities now.
    The thing that is hard to remember when crimes like this happen is the many millions of black people who get up every day, go to work, pay taxes, help their kids with their homework and are good decent people. We don’t hear much about them.
    I have no idea what this country can do to clean up the mess that 50 years of welfare has created. Get out of the big cities if you can. I don’t see any of this ending well.

    Hi Monk, I also enjoy using Firefox. I can’t stand IE and am wary of anything to do with Google. Those folks are just creepy.
    It’s a sad day when a violent, and virulent few people with a perverted agenda can ruin so many lives and cause so much trouble for the majority, both homosexual and straights alike. I guess it’s the fad now to not only get your way legally, but to do all you can to destroy anyone who opposes you or ever has opposed you. Let’s see, how did Dear Leader put this? Oh yes… you should “reward your friends and punish your enemies”. That’s the new American way !
