I, for one, wish the Kenyan candidate would shut up. His grandmother insists he was born in Kenya, and it has been reported that his birth certificate is a well done forgery. There still are many suggesting he has connections to both the Catholics In Action and the Deep State. Plus, his wife used to play tight end for Notre Dame. No, that last one, I made up.

WTF?

Are Americans so immoral and corrupt that they think having a president who breaks the law by paying for sex with a prostitute and cheats on his wife is acceptable?

Trump loves tyranny, debt, and wars and should be impeached, but saying he is controlled by Putin is bullshit.

If Russia controls Trump, why would he sanction Russia, close Russian consulates, and arm Ukraine?

'Fallen angels,' 'demonic entities': Encountering extraterrestrial xenophobia by The_In-Betweener in conspiracy

[–]The_In-Betweener[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Over the past year, and with increasing intensity, I’ve observed a great deal of anti-extraterrestrial rhetoric in social media, most of it polarized within a theological context. This rhetoric takes the position that extraterrestrials are “fallen angels and demonic entities.” Many of these doomsayer advocates naturally suggest that the ever-popular Satan is in charge of the whole Ufology movement.

...

Combat soldiers used to be indoctrinated with negative terminology about the enemy in order to dehumanize them, which supposedly made the enemy easier to kill if they were something less than human.

It’s disheartening that some people of a supposed loving faith are out spreading their twisted theological rhetoric in an effort to demean off-world visitors with an ultimate objective of making them easier to kill.

Anyone who leaves or enters the US with US $10,000 or more on them, in whatever form—cash, precious metals, etc.—must report it to "the authorities." All international travelers know this, even many of those who are mentally challenged. He was way over the line and I'm sure he knew the law. Within the last few years, it has become much more difficult for ordinary US citizens to move money around the world, unless you are rich enough. Try flying to say, Bangkok, and opening a bank account. Good luck with that, but if you take the 55-minute hop to Cambodia, no problem sir.

Oh I am so glad I took the SIM card out and use an Android old Blackphone for cellphone. Until I shut off WiFi I used it for Apps, including the Silent Circle phone app formerly in the Blackphone... cuz Privacy! Recently, after disabling 5G from my Netgear Router, eventually I turned it all off and use Ethernet for mac so iPhone now used for iTunes and only upon rare purchase of a CD to add it to phone Library thus turning on wifi briefly - phone cries, meh iCloud iCloud. Hahah! yes true, one less phone access and privacy but heh, how can you find a phone number if you want to contact an old friend? You can't. Not for free and I am not buying it.

The answer to a dead economy is starting a trade war.

The answer to regulations is more laws.

Americans used to believe in freedom.

http://www.naplesnews.com/story/opinion/contributors/2017/07/01/commentary-land-free-and-home-brave/427082001/

Now Americans would need to be mentally ill to think tyranny won't get worse.

Who would have thought in 1980 that the USA would soon have curfews, gun bans, NSA wiretapping, checkpoints, forfeiture, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, torture, kill lists, no fly lists, searches without warrants, private prisons, mandatory minimums, 3 strikes laws, DNA databases, CISPA, SOPA, NDAA, IMBRA, FBAR, FATCA, TSA groping, secret FISA courts, and Jade Helm?

During the Wild West in the US, everyone could carry guns, businesses were not licensed, no one had Social Security numbers, there were no sales, income, or property taxes, and drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, and prostitution were legal.

There was little government, yet people lived and had freedom.

http://www.harrybrowne.com/GLO/DrugWar.htm

The government today is regulating every area of everyone's life.

The government wants to tell us what to do, what to think, where to live, how to live, what to wear, and what to eat. Saying you live in a free country with a straight face is difficult when everything is illegal.

How can anyone take the moral high ground on anything when we are all criminals?

In the US, your body is not your body, your property is not your property, and your kid is not your kid.

Government is not the solution to problems. Government IS the problem.

Alcohol prohibition failed. The Soviet Union failed.

Anyone who supports the police state is just a tool for the elites.

Too bad Americans are surrendering liberty so easily.

Why did the USA fight for freedom against the British, Hitler, and Saddam if America just ended up as a police state? All those American soldiers died in vain.

The elites are trying to weaken and divide Americans by race, gender, handicap, penalizing hard work, encouraging welfare use, and pushing immorality while using fear, terrorism, drugs, false flags, discrimination, hate speech, Russian propaganda, and fake news laws, and wars on cash to make Americans give up their free speech rights, religious freedom, guns, right to silence, privacy, property, right to trials, freedom from torture, and the freedom from extrajudicial assassination.

https://fee.org/articles/the-growth-of-government-in-america/

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Things fall apart. The world has turned upside down now.

Clean-cut, moral Americans who were taught to hate Communism, be hard-working, be responsible, respect free speech, support religious freedom, defend gun rights, oppose warrantless searches, seizures, and torture must be in a state of shock to watch the USA become Socialist. How could Americans go to the same schools and have such different beliefs?

If you work today, you will owe taxes that will fund wars, debt, and tyranny.

The elites and the media are pushing wars, tyranny, debt, illegal immigrants, offshoring, moral decay, and Socialism. Americans pretend everything is fine and put their heads in the sand to ignore the obvious decline.

One day Americans may wake up and wonder how bankers can commit fraud and be rewarded with billion dollar bailouts instead of being jailed. Americans may ask why they should obey the law when the government and illegal immigrants don't. Why can the police kill unarmed Americans, the CIA can torture, officials can lie to Congress, IRS agents can target conservatives, the FBI can run child porn sites, and the EPA can pollute, but Americans can't?

Angry Americans might start resisting by lying on government forms, getting fake ID's, failing to pay taxes, not buying insurance, not wearing seatbelts, not registering guns, not getting driver licenses, and smoking in public.

The government will retaliate by increasing punishments with higher fines, longer sentences, and more draconian laws.

Americans might push back with sniper attacks on police checkpoints and terrorism.

As the economy dies due to debt and regulations, the elites will try to pump up the economy by nationalizing companies and outlawing private property and try to distract Americans by launching WWIII with North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China.

Americans will eventually end up in the concentration camps.

How many Americans will wish that they had spoken out against the police state earlier as they get pushed into the ovens?

Americans deserve everything coming to them.

How can Americans look in the mirror today without feeling shame and disgust?

Those who do not learn from the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them.

Wake up.

Think.

Pass the word.
