Completely Surrounded By Psychopaths And Sociopaths As We Approach The Edge Of Societal Collapse

Do you remember when America was a place where you could attend a public gathering without having to worry if a sociopath was going to set off a bomb or start wildly shooting people?  Do you remember when America was a place where you could walk down the street without having to worry that a vicious pack of teens might attack you for no reason whatsoever?  Do you remember when America was a place where you could leave your car unlocked, your house unlocked and your garage open without having to worry about thieves?  Well, only old timers are likely to remember a time when you could leave your front door unlocked, but it was once like that in America.  Over the past 50 years America has fundamentally changed.  Once upon a time you could trust just about everybody, but these days it is difficult to find anyone that you can truly trust.  We are literally surrounded by psychopaths and sociopaths as we approach the edge of societal collapse.  The truly frightening thing is that we are watching society break down rapidly even though economic conditions are still relatively good.  If this is how bad things are right now, what are they going to look like after the economy collapses and people become really desperate?

I was enjoying a peaceful morning today until I came across this headline: “7 dead, including shooter, at Wisconsin Sikh temple“.

What kind of a person does such a thing?

So far there does not appear to be any motive for the shooting.  These were people that were just peacefully gathering at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on Sunday morning.  They weren’t bothering anyone.

But some very twisted individual decided to walk in there and start randomly shooting people.

The mainstream media is describing the shooter as “a white male in his 30s“.

By the time it was all over, seven people (including the shooter) ended up dead and three others were wounded.

Of course the mainstream media is going to use examples such as these as reasons why we need to ban guns.  But as I wrote about the other day, the truth is that guns actually help prevent crime.  U.S. cities with the strictest gun control laws also have some of the highest rates of gun violence.  The criminals are always going to be able to get guns.

However, when it comes to mass murder there is a common thread among the major cases that we have seen in recent years that has nothing to do with guns at all.

The mainstream media does not talk about it, but the truth is that mass murderers are almost always found to be on legal drugs of one kind or another.

Many of these drugs can cause otherwise “normal” people to become raging psychopaths.  But the mainstream media is not going to talk about this because the drug companies spend billions of dollars advertising on their networks.

Other times it is illegal drugs that are causing people to go crazy.  Just check out what happened in Detroit the other day….

A 17-year-old boy was arrested after police found him lying completely naked in the middle of a street while apparently high on LSD. Police said the boy also jumped on the hood of their patrol car and broke out the windshield with his fists.

Even when they are not on drugs, the young people of America just seem to be getting wilder and wilder.  Recently I wrote about all of the flash mob crimes that we are seeing all over the country.  Groups of young people are banding together and invading retail stores for some “organized looting”.  These young people seem to have absolutely no concern for how their actions will affect the people that they are stealing from.

It seems like hearts are going cold all over the United States.  Psychology has all kinds of fancy names for this, but on a very basic level our empathy for others is rapidly disappearing.

According to dictionary.com, a psychopath is “a person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.”

Doesn’t that sound like a lot of people out there on the streets of America today?

Sadly, this even includes those that are considered to be among “the elite”.

For example, it is has been estimated that one out of every ten Wall Street employees is a psychopath.

According to dictionary.com, a sociopath is “a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.”

Often sociopaths will do things to other people or to animals without any concern for the pain they are causing.

In a previous article I wrote about a man that recently bit the lips off of a kitten.  This would be one example of a sociopath.

It has been estimated that there are 12 million sociopaths in the United States today.

That is only a small percentage of the population, but you never know who they are.

Once the percentage of crazy people becomes high enough in a community, it becomes very difficult to trust anyone.

Meanwhile, many of our greatest cities are degenerating into crime-infested war zones.  The city center of Detroit has become a place where people dump dead bodies.  The following is from a recent Fox News article….

From the street, the two decomposing bodies were nearly invisible, concealed in an overgrown lot alongside worn-out car tires and a moldy sofa. The teenagers had been shot, stripped to their underwear and left on a deserted block.

They were just the latest victims of foul play whose remains went undiscovered for days after being hidden deep inside Detroit’s vast urban wilderness — a crumbling wasteland rarely visited by outsiders and infrequently patrolled by police.

Abandoned and neglected parts of the city are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the dead — at least a dozen bodies in 12 months’ time. And authorities acknowledge there’s little they can do.

But it isn’t just our major cities that are degenerating.

All over America rural communities are falling apart as well.

The following is an extended excerpt from a comment that was recently posted on prophezine.com.  I believe that it very eloquently describes what is happening to communities all over the United States right now….

—————————————————————-

Crime has drastically increased in our little rural community in the last few years.

While there has always been the occasional theft, kids breaking in vacant houses, things picked up lying in the yard – recently theft has become bold, blatant and aggressive.

Middle of the day break-ins, multiple thieves in a trucks pulling trailers, organized crime targeting places of business and homes for high grade picking.

Taking the time to look at items and only take the best/most expensive.

We suffered a crippling hit a few months ago.

I worked until around 9:30-10 Friday night, and Saturday morning my tools and equipment were gone. Footprints, fingerprints, a neighbor saw the guys and pickup truck – but the sheriff’s department can’t afford the resources to track them down (by comparison it’s not a violent/murder case or a $40k vehicle…) I have a security camera on the front gate, and they avoided that by a 100 foot radius – dragging everything across a fence and down into a ditch on the other side of the property.

The day before another neighbor literally met and passed by people that had just robbed his farm, on his way back from the store, less than a mile from his house – he recognized his stuff on the back of their trailer. This was in the middle of the day. His gate was locked – but they drove through the ditch and around a field to get to his house.

A local truck repair shop has been in business for 3 generations, and until a few weeks ago had never been robbed. They are on the main street of a little town, and live right behind the shop. The front door of the shop is about 30 feet back from the main street. The thieves parked in FRONT, and loaded up his equipment.

Another big shop was hit on a Saturday morning – main street going into town – they loaded up everything right out the front door, with people seeing them, hundreds of cars driving by… They have bolt cutters, whatever it takes to break in…

Another older shop had a heavy wood door with a metal hasp – they CHOPPED THROUGH THE DOOR WITH AN AXE to cut out the metal hasp. A house is 100 feet from this shop.

We live in Georgia, south of Atlanta, and theft has become so bad, the state recently required all scrap yards to take pictures of everything brought in, with a picture of who brought it, a copy of their drivers license, and their tag number. If it is air conditioning/heating equipment (bigger than a window unit) you must have a commercial heating/ac license or a new equipment bill of sale. People were ripping the copper ground wires off the sides of power poles and tearing wires off the poles for scrap.

A local gas station/restaurant had their AC equipment stolen so many times, they had to build a chain link locked enclosure around all the equipment. You can see it from the main street – out in plain view.

Down our street last year was a home invasion.

Two driveways down, back in the woods – a drug cartel rented the house and had it set up for growing drugs in the basement. They got caught because the power meter was jumpered.

Another neighbor a couple miles down the road found a crack lab down in the woods next to a creek. I’ve personally called in 2 robberies/break-ins in the last year (the second set were caught and went to prison).

Our church pianist stopped at a downtown ATM and was almost mugged, but an off duty officer passing by stopped them. In the following couple of weeks there were 3 armed robberies/shootings in our town.

To put this all in perspective – my grandparents never locked their doors. They normally left the keys in all the vehicles (so they wouldn’t get lost, and was more convenient).

I don’t think the old church even had a lock on the front door.

I feel like we have been protected all these years – but now are forced to make drastic changes for a reason, and for a purpose. It’s like the hand of restraint and protection is being lifted from our communities.

What do you think these robbers would do if confronted on one of their middle of the day breakins?

The most effective home protection we have right now is 4 outside dogs. All of them bark, and at least two of them will bite.

Right now, things are rough, but they are not really that bad.

The power is still own (not like half of India), Wallyworld still has plenty of food on the shelves, the gas stations have full tanks, all the ATM’s, debit card/credit card machines work, and cell phones hardly miss a beat.

If a growing sector of society is already participating in blatant violent in your face crime – what will it be like when things really do get bad?

Are similar things happening where you live?

The Beginning Of The End - The New Novel About The Future Of America By Michael T. Snyder
  • r.bitting

    This break down of society is not some strange phenomenon, it’s what happens to a society that once held the truth of the Bible in the highest regard, only to later reject God’s word. It’s Deuteronomy ch. 28 & Romans ch. 1 playing out before your very eyes. God is not mocked, that which a man sows, the same shall he reap. I’m more concerned by the fact that many ” professing ” christians seem to be losing their fear of God, and exploiting the grace that God has given them through Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross with their willful rebellion to Christ’s teachings. But I have just the cure for these people, they should spend some time at ” Holydesperation.com ” and watch the video titled ” The fear of God is missing in the church.

    • lee

      Gotta agree with much of that.

      One of my pearls of wisdom is if you start reading the bible regularly and go to church and sunday school regularly, you will either change(for the better IMHO) or you will stop doing those things.

      IMO, one of the major reasons the US has so many problems is the majority of the people have been declining on those things for decades.

    • JasonD

      Have you ever read the short story “The Jilting of Granny Weatherall?”

      • r.bitting

        No, but upon reading your reply, I googled it and read the synopsis, and I believe I see your point!

    • jaxon64

      rbiting…I think you missed one of the obvious ones–in fact the whole 2nd book of Timothy

      2 Timothy Chapter 3

      New International Version (NIV)

      1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

      6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.

      • r.bitting

        Jaxon64, you are absolutely right!

      • Repentant

        2 Timothy is not a warning against the public in general. These words have described those who live without fear of God since the very beginning. Before the flood GOd said that all of mankind’s thoughts were “only evil continually” and so he destroyed everything. 2 Timothy is an admonition from Paul to Timothy regarding his new position of leadership in the Church. It is a warning that for those who don’t remain true to the word and the example of Jesus Christ that the Church will eventually look very similar to the world. Unfortunately many Churches have forsaken the truth and fear of God and exchanged it for “greasy grace” wherein one can live however one wants as long as one has made that trip to the altar at some point in their life. This is the reason for Gays, adulterers and fornicators standing in our pulpits. Divorce being as prevalent in the Church as out, and more importantly the fact that the Church no longer feels the need to fulfill the great commission and for those who do feel the call, we find that we have lost our power and our appeal to reach the masses. The Church that Christ built grew rapidly because it offered something different than the lives people were living, it offered freedom from Sin rather that just a phony freedom from the punishment for Sin. THus the ever fitting admonition from God that “If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways….THEN will I hear form heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land”. AMEN

        • Gay Veteran

          religion exists for 2 reasons: (1) man fears death and (2) as a means of social control (obey the king or you’ll go to hell!)

          • r.bitting

            Gay veteran, fools exist for 1 reason, they say that there is no God ( Psalm 14 ). They do so, even in the face of all the revelation God has given them. Just think of what you are claiming as truth, by denying a creator, you have in essence just said that you can have an effect without a cause ( something came from nothing ). That is blind faith, and misguided faith at that. God gave you a conscience so that you would know right from wrong, and He did so because right and wrong matter to God. Whenever somebody wrongs you or you see someone else wronged, you look for justice, and you do so because God has endowed you with that sense, so it’s obvious that God cares about justice also. These two things should point you to the fact that there will be a future accounting of oneself before God. You better wise up my friend, because you are surely going to give an account. God did give you something else, the ability to forgive others, because He values that over judgment ( James 2:13 ).

          • Mal R

            “religion exists for 2 reasons: (1) man fears death (2) as a means of social control (obey the king or you’ll go to hell!) ”

            Let put on our thinking caps for just 2 seconds – I promise it wont hurt. Why would a faithful man fear going home to be with his father in heaven?

            Umm, I dont think you understand religion and faith at allllll. Of course, given your comments, you dont understand much.

    • RCOLA777

      Aman brother!!!

      • Gay Veteran

        r.bitting, try thinking instead of just parroting bible verses

        immensely odd you refer to “blind faith” because that is all you have.

        and you confuse me for an atheist. Atheists like theists are arrogant in their certainty.

        • r.bitting

          Gay Veteran, thats right, you claim to be an agnostic, which means you don’t know if theres a God or not. Isn’t it arrogant of you to assume that just because you can’t see God’s hand in creation, that no one else can either. Maybe you are just ” willfully ” blinded by your lifestyle, because you KNOW that acknowledging God means acknowledging that you are operating outside of his will. Yes, I think this is closer to the truth. BTW, there is an ” immense ” amount of evidence to have absolute faith in God, and in Jesus Christ for that matter. I’m still waiting for even one of you to answer the most basic of questions, HOW CAN YOU HAVE AN EFFECT ( THE UNIVERSE ) WITHOUT A CAUSE ( A CREATOR )? When you can answer that for me, then i’ll listen to what you have to say. You are just running from the soveriegnty of God, like so many others who don’t want to have to answer for their life choices do. And just like all those before you, you will find out that you let your desire to be the captain of your own ship blind you to the truth. But now, do what you always do, launch into the whole bible and slavery, intolerant Christian arguement. Again, these are just you, attempting to divert others from the truth, that being, that there is a God, and you know it. You just want Him to be accepting of your lifestyle, and until He does, you will revolt by denying His very existence. Because if He was willing to accept your lifestyle, we would’nt be having this conversation would we, because you would be a follower of His. Again, the truth that lies in your heart is revealed in the answer to one question, If God were to appear to you and tell you that you are on the wrong path, and that unless you repent you will be judged, would you repent?

        • Mal R

          “try thinking instead of just parroting ”

          Did a committed leftist really just recommend that for someone else? really? LOL! You people would be funny if you weren’t so sad and pathetic.

        • jerry sweet

          since God says in His word that men who have sex with men are an appsolute horrible sin that He finds so revolting,he promises to burn these people in a lake of fir forever.so you tell Him on the day of judgement why we are homophobes

      • Gay Veteran

        “you people”

        stereotype much?

      • Gay Veteran

        r.biting, once again you can’t make an argument without parroting Bible verses

        and I love how you talk about a “lifestyle”. I preppy, that’s a lifestyle, not my innate sexuality.

        Operating outside god’s will? how would you know that? reading a book that has been through multiple translations?

        you’re like some primative trying to understand lightning and thunder

        interesting how you talk about “truth” and yet Christians used the Bible to justify slavery

        sorry, that’s just the facts

      • Gay Veteran

        wow Mal R, dense as ever! man created religion because he fears death, understand it now?

    • TruthHunter

      The problem lies directly in the hands of the preachers. They have basically
      said, “live as you please, God’s Law was done away with” If God’s Law means
      nothing, of why respect man’s law?

  • Rodster

    Definitely a bad economy can explain an increase in crime. But one thing the article never mentioned was the lack of God in people’s lives today. As a Nation we have had God stripped away and replaced with secularism. There must be a connection. Both my parents raised us kids with a belief in God.

    Today a religious person is viewed as anything but normal. I’m not one to get carried away with religion i.e. a Bible thumper but I know I answer to a higher power. That gives me the sense that I can’t do what I want while on this earth.

    • A.S.

      In order to help the next generation, home-school. Public schools, even many private schools, are nothing more than evil, brainwashing propaganda factories. That is how you get people like Gay Veteran and Xander Cross. They are completely brain dead, can’t think on their own, and only regurgitate the same propaganda they hear on the news.

      And to think, Obama fooled millions into thinking he is a good Christian. The moment he said, “If my daughter were to get pregnant, I don’t want her to be PUNISHED with having a baby,” that should have been clear proof of who he is and where he will take our country. But, no, people are still dumb and see a pretty face. What is beneath, deep down in the soul, is what counts.

      So, for the next election, we really are “screwed.” Who to vote for? A Democommie or a Repubcommie? Where are more men of honor like Ron Paul? This is exactly what the Bible talks about, how to recognize the last days: evil men will be seen as saints and good men will be seen as the lowliest of the earth, not even worth your time to spit upon them. Doesn’t this describe Ron Paul?

      • Gay Veteran

        “…That is how you get people like Gay Veteran and Xander Cross. They are completely brain dead, can’t think on their own, and only regurgitate the same propaganda they hear on the news….”

        As if religious zealots like you can think on your own. And sorry, I don’t watch the corporate media “news” which is why I come to this site and others like Karl Denninger, Glenn Greenwald, Chris Floyd, etc.

        “…And to think, Obama fooled millions into thinking he is a good Christian. The moment he said, “If my daughter were to get pregnant, I don’t want her to be PUNISHED with having a baby,” that should have been clear proof of who he is and where he will take our country. But, no, people are still dumb and see a pretty face. What is beneath, deep down in the soul, is what counts….”

        Obama is a war criminal, just like Bush and the neo-con war-mongers in America and Israel. But your type is not pro-life, you’re only pro-birth and unwilling to lift a finger to help out an unwanted child.

        • A.S.

          Why would you say that I wouldn’t help an unwanted child? Why would you assume something about me without even getting to know me first, or what I stand for. If I had the money, I would adopt a child from a Russian orphanage, or even a street child from Russia. I can give you a list of Orthodox Jews that have adopted children from Russia, but you would not be interested about hearing that.

          And you don’t think I know who Obama really is? And read my previous comments above–if the U.S. wants blessings, they should support Israel unconditionally.

          • xander cross

            Hyprocrite.You assume things about me and you defiently dont know me at all. Man, you’re an idiot, just like ron paul. Then you attack gay veteran and you dont know him. This is why I stay clear from racist like you A.S. Racists like you, gudio, knightowl77 attack black people by their worst, but judge white people by their best. This proves that you’re a racist, just like ron paul and the Sikh shooter who happens to be a white male who was neo nazi. How sad. Oh, by the way, how come so many white people have weapons that they buy from these gun shows that are illegal?

          • Gay Veteran

            well how convenient, IF you had the money you would adopt a child

            we support the neo-conserviative war-mongers in Israel which is part of the reason the Arabs hate us (that, and supporting dictatorships and kings)

          • Guido

            Xander, any gratuitious statement can be just as gratuitously denied. You call me a racist on every thread. Well, I’m not.

            But you are. (nyah!)

            And what illegal guns at gun shows?
            Again, as I have to point out in every thread, you just don’t know what you’re talking about.

          • A.S.

            Actually, a lot of Arabs and Muslims (one doesn’t equal the other) hate the U.S. because of wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and two new ones in Syria and Iran. And blaming them for 9-11 when it was most likely some CIA, FBI, NSA, job.

          • A.S.

            If you talk like this: “we support the neo-conserviative war-mongers in Israel” then it is regurgitating the corporate media in the U.S. Have you ever lived in Israel, like for a whole year, to see what it is like? Have you lived in a “settlement” for even a week, to see what the people are like? I bet not. Before you say such lies and hate, live in Israel. But, no, you are comfortable in your “relatively peaceful for now” U.S. There is no other army in the world that is as moral and respectful as the IDF. Which army in the world will give a warning to its enemy that it will be doing a search for terrorists, so if you are innocent, you have 24 hours to get out of your house? Did the U.S. warn the people in the twin towers: “we believe there will be plane going through tomorrow, so if you are innocent, don’t come to work tomorrow.” Yeah, right! Bottom line, come to Israel and see for yourself before you repeat corporate media lies (you say you don’t watch corporate media, but it appears you do).

    Yes, these incidents have occurred more frequently in our town of 4500 in NE KS. Thieves have been targeting the more upscale parts of town. I think a lot of it is that folks are getting desperate as they start to run out of jobs and cash. A lot of families are having to help support their children who are out of work. There are very few good jobs opening up around here. The economy is slowly tanking. I guess we should be thankful that it’s a slow ride instead of a fast one.

    One related comment about the WI shooting. Interesting how this is called an act of domestic terrorism and a hate crime before any facts are known, and the Ft, Hood shooting after all the facts are in is called a workplace incident.

    Something doesn’t smell right with the CO and WI shootings, especially so close to the election. Any means to the end is justifiable in the minds of progressives. And with their view of man ruining the planet and eugenics, a few lives here and there is a price willing to be paid.

    Don’t give your guns up!

    • Colin

      Cleo,

      I am a progressive. When I consider a decision, I factor into that decision what it will mean for others. To be on the left, it means that I, and others, like me support the rights of humans. Some of us. like me, extend those rights to animals. Yes, I do believe that our activities are harming our planet. However, there are people on your side of the aisle who are starting to believe this too. Unfortunately, there aren’t many who do. As for eugenics, I am concerned that this is something that your side of the aisle might fall behind. In our side of the aisle, we don’t purge people if they share different viewpoints. And isn’t that the point of eugenics – to purge the population of undesirables and perfect the human form?

      • jaxon64

        Colin–try as you might, you cannot dissociate yourself and Progressivism from eugenics. This is the PRIMARY foundation of progressivism. Deny it all you want-maybe you actually really believe what you are saying–which makes you a “useful idiot” (who parrot what your leaders say and ignore what they do).

        Whether it is the Rockefellers who were financing sterilization and Josef Menghelin’s human experimentation prior to 1938…or Margaret Sanger and the progressive’s formation of “planned parenthood” to keep the blacks and poor whites populations from growing. Or the progressive’s orders to involuntarily steralize children in orphanages in the teens, 20′s and 30′s.

        Today progressives fight tooth and nail for abortions, even infanticide, they are great supporters of teaching children at younger and younger ages about embracing a “gay lifestyle” because gays don’t breed–and in their wonderful compassion they are aborting millions with US Taxpayer funding on a global scale.

        The progressives almost won the vote in the Senate before WW1 to fight on Germany’s side–this is a fact, look it up. Let’s also not forget W Wilson and his extreme proggresivism–who also penned away our nation’s financial independence and placed our future economy into the hands of the elite bankers/ Federal Reserve.

        You guys are the ultimate enemy of average people whether it is the academia/professors, the media elites who propogandize, the bankers who enslave with debt, or the politicians ( always progressive’s answers are for more regulation of the masses) who push for more and more control with a complicit judicial system.

        Parrot out the brainwashing you’ve been told since childhood but they have nothing in common with reality.

        Colin, I can only pray that you will either have the courage to read and research the truth someday and once you know that you have been molded since childhood to believe a lie you will be willing to stand on the side of truth. It is getting harder since there are fewer and fewer of us now who have escaped the indoctrinations or made it through and still retained our ability to think on our own.

        • Randome-11

          “The progressives almost won the vote in the Senate before WW1 to fight on Germany’s side–this is a fact,”

          The world would have been better off if that had happened.

            If you are going to cite facts, please back them up with a link so I can see where you are getting your information. This is a required skill, and we have seen Michael do this in his blogs.

            Colin:

            Thank you for the compliment.

          great strawman, jaxon, stereotype much?

          • Guido

            Actually, it’s true. The progressives have supported some of the absolute worst stuff in American history in the name of progress. The progressives seem to be dead set on dragging us forward to their new world, even if none of us survive the trip.

            They supported Hitler and Mussolini before WWII and saw in them a great example for the US to follow. Read Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg.

            They always seem to swing towards totalitarianism when given the chance. Just look up the tyrannical rule of Woodrow Wilson, who lied to the US about not wanting to go to war, then got us into WWI. Look up Goldberg for that one, too.

            They were big into eugenics. Here’s just one link out of thousands you can find on google:http://www.thefreemanonline.org/features/eugenics-progressivism%E2%80%99s-ultimate-social-engineering/
            In fact, the eugenics movement in the US and England was the inspiration for Hitler, not the other way around.

            They thought the Soviets were pretty cool, too. http://spectator.org/archives/2012/03/30/the-nations-top-50-progressive

            They fundamentally transformed education in this country with big progressive industrialists, like Rockefeller and others, financing the new methods with the intention of churning out people juuust smart enough to be employees of someone else. You can read up on that in John Taylor Gatto’s book the underground history of american education FREE ONLINE HERE! http://www.johntaylorgatto.com/chapters/.

            So yeah, the progressives really have tended to come down on the wrong side of freedom, liberty, the family, and pretty much everything most people support in nearly every instance. It would be shocking if your average person knew about this, but the liberals in academia and the media work hard to keep the history of the progressives out of the spotlight.

            For instance, if blacks knew about Wilson’s racism and how he actually reintroduced racial segregation to the Army and how he screened Birth of a Nation in the Whitehouse, well perhaps they would be more wary of the people who are ostensibly trying to help them…

            Guido, you DO understand that Hitler came to power in a coaltion with conservatives?

      • Mal R.

        “As for eugenics, I am concerned that this is something that your side of the aisle might fall behind. In our side of the aisle, we don’t purge people if they share different viewpoints”

        I dunno how WE would fall behind, unless you meant in support of it. The democrat party wholely believes in and supports it. Go research Margaret Sanger (whom Hillary LOVES) and why your abortionists (Planned Parenthood) put their lil clinics in black neighborhoods more often than not. Why do leftists want to kill all children like Trig Palin?

        You dont purge people? Tell that to the American Germans, Italians and Japanese you idiots interred during WWI and WWII. You people are the biggest bunch of fascists this side of WWII. EVERYTHING a conservative says and does is racist, extremist, hateful etc. What is the fairness doctrine? Why do leftists make videos of killing CHILDREN and those that disagree with your notion of global warming? Why do you people keep making videos of killing conservative radio show hosts and bloggers? How about the HOLLYWOOD MOVIES assassinating Bush? The only thing you’re missing right now is the means to actually start shooting us. Fear not, your side is working on disarming Americans daily.

        Theodore Roosevelt was the candidate for a Progressive (the ‘Bull Moose’) party in 1912, and was considered a candidate for the 1916 race. See here.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_Party_%28United_States,_1912%29

        Actually, black didn’t vote overwhelmingly for the Democratic presidential ticket until 1936. Before then, most blacks voted for Republicans. Democrats were associated with racism and enforcement of the Jim Crow laws.

        An important consideration when viewing history is to take facts into context and to recognize that institutions and people change over time. For instance, my party, the Democratic Party, began to embrace civil rights in the 1960′s, and the southern Democrats, in response, switched their affiliation to the Republicans who were at the time willingly to embrace in what became known as the Southern Strategy.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy

        This strategy has ensured that the Republicans have maintain a firm hold on the South to the present day.

    Does anyone remember the thousands of fish dying and birds falling from the sky? Check out this bible verse Hosea4:3-3 Hear the word of the Lord, you Israelites, because the Lord has a charge to bring against you who live in the land: There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgement of God in the land. There is only cursing, lying, and murder, stealing and adultery they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed. Because of this the land mourns, and all who live in it waste away; the beast of the field and the birds of the air and the fish of the sea are dying. Because we are spiritually dead and have forgotten God we are having record droughts and sea life are dying by the thousands as well as birds. Google it if you don’t believe me. Lord Jesus wake your people up!!!

    • Paul

      Yeah. That really helps. The imaginary angry sky fairies will make everything better.

      • jaxon64

        Paul..let’s look at some facts though. For decade after decade this was a God-loving and honoring nation. People believed ( even if they were all wrong) that there was an ultimate accountability for their actions–consequences greater than our nation’s laws and judiciary.

        Now, America has been at war with God ( or the concept of God). We banned him from our schools, His word from public, against the Constitution the govt has restricted the free practice of worship of God–and the result? America is now falling apart at the seams. We have at least 2 generations now who are godless and moral-less. Without compassion, empathy, known as the “me first” generation.

        Whether you believe in God or not–and it is your free will to deny Him here on this side of death ( as He will give you your wish of denial on the other side)- you cannot deny that this belief of an Almighty God who is righteous and Holy has a power to keep the masses from wantonly, and heartlessly commiting such atrocities.

        • Kev

          I notice a veiled threat there with “this side of death”.Not a direct personal threat,but a threat none the less.Strange how the God Squad always,always use the same tired old tactics to ram home their ‘peaceful’ message.ALL of the upset,deceit,greed and malice that is around you is completely man made,man engineered and avoidable.Wicked sociopathic individuals are conditioning and engineering behavioural change on an industrial scale.

          • GunshineState

            Nobody is threatening anyone, veiled or otherwise. It is amazing to me that people see the Bible and the Word of God in this manner. I guess it’s because of society but when I was a child, I had to behave a certain way or I would be punished. My parents didn’t punish me because they hated me or because they were sadistic, but because they wanted me to realize that life isn’t “fair” and actions have consequences. In today’s society we have removed many of the consequences of people’s actions, and this is what we get. People who are incapable of understanding how reality works and who get angry at God and anyone who expects a basic standard of behavior and decency. God’s ways are NOT your ways. It’s pretty arrogant and narcissistic of mere mortals to think that they can ignore God’s laws and rules and just “be good people” and everything will be fine. God is not the government, or school, or today’s permissive parents, you cannot flout his clearly-stated laws and expect to be praised and rewarded because it doesn’t work that way. How arrogant does someone have to be to think that THEY know more than an all-seeing, all-powerful omnipotent deity?

            Personally, although I am a Christian, I don’t particularly care about saving anyone, nor do I concern myself with the state of anyone’s soul outside of my own family. The Bible is readily available and you have free will. If you choose to come to God, great! You will find your life vastly improve, and I speak from personal experience. If not, there WILL be consequences, whether or not you believe. No threats, just real talking. Besides, if you think it’s all bullcrap then why would you care if someone “threatens” you with something that you don’t even believe will happen?

            I will say that I think this mindset comes from shame. People KNOW that they’re doing wrong but they cannot bear to hear even a whisper of condemnation because they might be forced to re-examine their lives and make some uncomfortable changes. To this I say…”My right to say it, your choice to listen”. Just like it’s your choice to live whatever kind of lifestyle you please, but that doesn’t mean that everyone is going to celebrate and applaud it. If that’s too real then perhaps there’s another area of your life that needs examination.

          banned from school? there will be prayer in school as long as there are algebra tests. oh, you meant state-sponsored prayer? yeah, that was banned. can’t use the power of the state to impose YOUR version of religion on everyone else. And what restriction of the free practice of worship???

          “…you cannot deny that this belief of an Almighty God who is righteous and Holy has a power to keep the masses from wantonly, and heartlessly commiting such atrocities….”

          not really, there have been atrocities since the dawn of time

    • Gay Veteran

      gee Guido, who brought us the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Votings Rights Act of 1965. progressives

      • Guido

        Oh, GV. You have it sooo wrong.

        Actually, it was the democrats who were AGAINST the Civil Right Act in 1964. They opposed it, led by Bobby Byrd of WV, the notorious Ku Klux Kongressman, who once wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator, Theodore G. Bilbo in 1944:

        “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
        —Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944

        Byrd personally filibustered the bill for 14 hours!

        BTW-it was LBJ who pushed the bill through using grief over JFK as the motivation. Maybe a little underhanded, but we can let that slide, right?

        LBJ was no friend to Blacks, either. LBJ was known as a vicious racist who viewed The Great Society and other pro-Black agendas as handouts to earn votes. LBJ actually stated, “I’ll have those n*****s voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” -”Inside The White House,” R. Kessler.

        “…LBJ biographer Robert Caro notes that prior to 1957, Johnson “had never supported civil rights legislation—any civil rights legislation,” including anti-lynching legislation. His private behavior toward blacks was appalling. Robert Parker, LBJ’s longtime black employee and limousine chauffeur, claims that Johsnon blasted him daily with a blizzard of bigoted slurs. And even as LBJ was being praised by liberals for his appointment of Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court, behind closed doors LBJ’s cynical brand of “identity politics” became clear. As presidential historian Robert Dallek recounts, LBJ explained his decision to a staff member by saying, “”Son, when I appoint a n****r to the court, I want everyone to know he’s a n****r.”
        (Actually, I read he said, “…he’s my n****r.”)

        “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” — LBJ

        SOOOOOOO was this the idealistic Progressives getting something right, or merely cynical Realpolitik to win votes? I wonder what Blacks would think if they knew the actual history of the Democrats?

        The 1964 act was modeled on the Reconstruction-era Civil Rights Act of 1875, which was passed by Republicans to help Black Southerners be empowered members of their communities. They passed a lot of laws to help protect and empower Southern Blacks for nearly a century after the Civil War against Democrat resistance.

        There was the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act, outlawing Democratic Party-affiliated terrorist groups which oppressed Southern Blacks.

        The Civil Rights Act of 1875, guaranteeing access to public accommodations without regard to race, signed by Republican President U.S. Grant; passed with 92% Republican support over 100% Democrat opposition.

        In 1894, the Democrats and Dem. President Grover Cleveland join to repeal Republicans’ Enforcement Act, which had enabled African-Americans to vote.

        There was also the Susan B. Anthony amendment for women’s suffrage; Democrat-controlled Senate defeated it 4 times before election of Republican House and Senate guaranteed its approval in 1919.

        In 1902, Virginia Democrats implemented a new state constitution, condemned by Republicans as illegal, reducing African-American voter registration by 86%.

        In 1919, the Republican House passed a constitutional amendment granting women the vote with 85% of Republicans in favor, but only 54% of Democrats. In the Senate, 80% of Republicans voted yes, but almost half of Democrats voted no.

        In 1922, the House passed bill authored by U.S. Rep. Leonidas Dyer (R-MO) making lynching a federal crime and Senate Democrats blocked it with a filibuster. (Wow, that was pretty nice of them, huh?)

        In 1940, the national RNC platform called for integration of the armed forces. FDR refused to order it until later, when he ordered a very watered-down, limited integration. Blacks could join, were kept in separate camps, and the services to decided how and where to use them. The majority of Black soldiers are sent to India to build the Burma Road, AKA the man-a-mile road for its high mortality rate due to disease and poor conditions.

        In 1956, 97 Democrats in Congress condemned the SCOTUS decision in Brown v. Board of Education, and pledge to continue segregation.

        In 1957, President Eisenhower deploys the 82nd Airborne Division to Little Rock, AR to force Democrat Governor Orval Faubus to integrate public schools, sparking criticism from Democrats such as Senators John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson.

        In 1960, President Eisenhower signed the Republicans’ Civil Rights Act of 1960, overcoming a 125-hour, around-the-clock filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats.

        In 1963, Republicans condemned the Democrat sheriff of Birmingham, AL for arresting over 2,000 African-American schoolchildren marching for their civil rights. Should I go on???

        Again, it was progressives, like Woodrow Wilson, who fought for segregation, and others, like LBJ who defended it. The Dems fought against re-integration tooth and nail. When they finally did manage to pass meaninful reforms, it was after nearly a century of blocking Republican efforts, and apparently as a cynical power play.

        Oh well, the Progressives may be completely wrong, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

        • Gay Veteran

          illogical, if LBJ was such a racist then why did he get the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed? you don’t make any sense

          and the Southern Democratic racists became Southern Republican racists

          • Guido

            Waitaminit, Gay, are you saying the racist progressives who fought civil rights for decades are now members of the party that fought FOR civil rights for nearly a century? That seems kind of… hard to believe. Doesn’t it?

            Since you have no proof for your claim, how do you know people didn’t switch parties after seeing how racist the Democrats were? Coming from the South, I can tell you the Rs were never very successful in the South until recent years-the Dems ran the machine in all the old Southern states.

            But with your strange reasoning, is that a tacit admission that the Democrats at least WERE racists? That’s a big step for you, I’m sure.

            I also need your help here. How can you defend LBJ? Did you even read what I wrote? Are you telling me even with direct quotes and background info, LBJ wasn’t a racist? If anyone’s logic is faulty here, it’s yours.

            CIVIL RIGHTS WAS PURE POLITICS FOR THE DEMOCRATS! It was never about justice or equality or integration or any ideal you can name-it was pure cynical pragmatic power politics. LBJ and the Dems used race as a tool. Blacks were/are a tool for them to secure votes.

            You’re also denying LBJ’s own words:

            “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” — Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One Ronald Kessler’s “Inside The White House” -LBJ said this. Did his plan work? You tell me.

            “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” — LBJ

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1rIDmDWSms&feature=related
            Here’s LBJ using the N*****r on the phone discussing his lack of support for ending the Poll Tax in Texas. “There’s more N*****s voting than white folks.”

            The Democrat Party institutionalized racism for a long, LONG time:

            “I’ll have those n*ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” -Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One according Ronald Kessler’s Book, “Inside The White House”

          The Democrat Party and the Ku Klux Klan: Aside from the multiple Klan members who have served in elected capacity within the high ranks of the Democrat Party, the political party itself has a lengthy but often overlooked history of involvement with the Ku Klux Klan. Though it has been all but forgotten by the media, the Democrat National Convention of 1924 was host to one of the largest Klan gatherings in American history. Dubbed the “Klanbake convention” at the time, the 1924 Democrat National Convention in New York was dominated by a platform dispute surrounding the Ku Klux Klan. A minority of the delegates to the convention attempted to condemn the hate group in the party’s platform, but found their proposal shot down by Klan supporters within the party. As delegates inside the convention voted in the Klan’s favor, the Klan itself mobilized a celebratory rally outside. On July 4, 1924 one of the largest Klan gatherings ever occurred outside the convention on a field in nearby New Jersey. The event was marked by speakers spewing racial hatred, celebrations of their platform victory in the Democrat Convention, and ended in a cross burning.


          I’m sure there are racists in the RNC, as well, and I don’t approve, but when the Left in this country pretends they hold some moral high ground, it is so absurd I don’t know if I should laugh or be angry.

          • Guido

            HAH! Good one, Mal R! I’ll never forget Clinton’s comment about how Obama would have been fetching him coffee a few years ago. That was classy.
            How about Biden’s “they wanna put you back in chains” comment? That was as low as it gets.

          • Gay Veteran

            guess Guido missed the quote from LBJ saying that passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 would cost the Democrats the south

          • Guido

            If this is the best ripost you can mount, I think I can count this round mine.

            BTW-How is your point relevant? I’ve already shown pretty quickly LBJ was no friend to minorities. Even his butler confirmed the man was a hardcore racist. And his own words illustrate the pragmatic approach he had to dealing with Black Americans. He was using them. The dems still are. “They wanna put y’all back in chains.” Uncle Joe shows the dems aren’t afraid to stoke racial tension and fear when it suits them.

            As long as American Blacks stay on the democrat plantation, where they belong, everything’s going to be juuuust fine.

        • Gay Veteran

          Some Democrats did oppose the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but then so did some Republicans (like Goldwater). So what?

          Sen. Byrd in his youth was in the KKK. He repented. Or did you intentionally leave that out?

          And Truman desegregated the military.

          Was LBJ a racist? Don’t know, but he DID get the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 enacted. He accomplished what the liberal Republicans couldn’t. Was he cynical? I don’t know, but he was smart enough to know that white racist Democrats would become white racist Republicans.

          You seem to be obsessed with Democrats and like to pretend the Republicans were as pure as the driven snow.

  • K

    First, I am sorry you have been a victim of a crime. This is most likely, what used to be called a time crime. They try to be sure no one is at home, the one thing they fear is an armed homeowner. They usually have pretty well worked out the response time, for the local cops. As long as they can get in and out fast enough, they are long gone before anyone can arrive. If this much has changed in your area. It usually indicates, the local cops are not much feared by the criminals. Are you sure, you are far enough from Atlanta?

    • Gay Veteran

      gee Guido, if Democrats TODAY (not 100 years ago like Wilson) are such racists then why don’t Blacks vote Republican?

      oh, but I guess you know better than they do

  • Tom

    In my opinion this is a systemic problem that has been brought to bear from many flawed philosophies of the past twenty years. I am a 47 year old divorced father of four children all from my one and only marriage.
    I have had the eye opening and unpleasant experience of trying to keep my children on a positive and productive path over the course of the past ten plus years since my separation and divorce. For nature of this reply and in the name of expediency I’ll save you all the complicated custody court battles I have had involving them.
    My personal experience has revealed the importance of both parents and society at large holding children to well defined acceptable standards of conduct and what appropriate discipline will be when those standards of conduct are not met.
    In my case I found that the police, the court system, and especially councilors and probation officers did not fulfill their duties as the public at large would expect. I consistently relied on these resources in an attempt to manage the conduct of my children as well as the conduct of my irresponsible and out of control ex-wife who was enabling their illegal behavior.
    In essence, I was essentially stripped of what felt like “All”, but in fact was “Nearly All” of the parental power to which I believed that I possessed in accordance with my divorce decree including well defined custody provisions.
    Kids today just as children of the past lie to save their ass. The difference today however is that some jag-off at every level of government believe that it is their responsibility to determine for themselves what is proper or not.
    Let me give you a few examples of what I mean.
    My kids erected a shrine to substance abuse in the basement of their mothers house consisting of 50 + empty liquor bottles, a Green Ceramic Bong filled with and reeking of resin and embossed with a Pot Leaf on it and accompanied by several walls filled with gang graffiti and stolen property.
    Their mother tells me it’s no big deal, she is not going to talk about it and the bong is not a bong it is an incense burner. The police will not enter the house to investigate because they had not witnessed any of what I have just described.
    A few years ago my then 16 year old daughter ran away from home and after months of her mother covering up her whereabouts I find out she is shacking up with a twenty year old heroin addict. I finally get her on house arrest under my supervision for that as well as several other legal violations and she begins leaving the house to see this junkie. When I caught her and him together and had her P.O. on my cell phone the only thing the P.O. was concerned with was that I did not hurt either one of them. Although this continued on a daily basis the P.O. would not violate her probation and eventually allowed her to move to her mother’s house.
    (Of course she was conveniently not in court months later when my daughter’s final hearing took place)

    I have nearly a dozen years of events similar to these that run the gambit from relatively petty to federal and felony violations and convictions. I have lost money and missed time at work on more than 40 occasions and nearly every time my child was before the judge he or she was allowed to reside with their mother after being released from jail or prison. During one hearing the judge threatened to hold me in contempt of court for asking about custody arrangements after one child’s release from a juvenile boot-camp.
    By this time you must be wondering what is wrong with me. Let me assure you that I am productively employed, relatively articulate, I try to responsibly relate with and guide my children, and always wear a suit to court. It seems that the fact that I drink beer and set rules for my children is sufficient evidence that I am somehow an abusive father. My children get grounded as a consequence of their inappropriate actions, they do not get berated or beat.
    I am constantly condemned by my children for long lectures and never letting them do anything, in their opinion.
    It seems that this is todays new standard of abuse. I guess this is what we get for never keeping score, giving everyone a trophy and pushing everyone through school. (No child left behind) ( Bull ! No Accountability, No Responsibility, and No Moral Values)
    Society does not want to hold children accountable, their looking to blame the parents for the failures of their own policies.

    • A Dodgy Bloke

      Tom, you have my profound sympathies. Children like most people take the course of least resistance if you have a dim wit as an ex wife there is little you can do. The entire family court system is over worked, and riddled with ticket punchers, and people just going though the motions. The police are over worked over whelmed and if the 16 YO Frisbee wants to stay with a twenty year old heroin addict you’re going to get a resigned shrug. There are tens of thousands of 16-year-old girls making stupid decisions they will deeply regret later, the cops see this daily.
      If I may make a suggestion, a wise man once said “reality is not optional”. Sooner or later reality is going to catch up with your kids. I’m sad to say with a moron as an ex and you being the stable one guess who everybody is going to run to once the wolf arrives at the door and it’s hungry. Life is going to get hard it’s going to get lethal if you’re stupid. I would suggest getting ready for the day when your daughter arrives at your door with a couple of kids in tow and no welfare, or not enough to survive on. Or you son arrives skin and bone.
      Being a parent is the hardest job in the world especially now.

      Take care,and God Bless.

      • Guido

        Dodgy, some day I wish I could have a beer with you.

    • A.S.

      Dear Tom,

      It was really heartbreaking and even depressing to read about what happened to you. I am still single, and being 38 and never married, makes me depressed that I will never my find my soulmate. But, when I see how children behave even in Orthodox Jewish circles, makes me wonder if I will have proper parenting skills.

      I am pretty much a pacifist and good citizen: I am careful of other’s property, I go through the proper channels to attain what is rightly owed to me, I do my best to help out whoever seeks my counsel, etc. And that said, I expect others to behave such as well. So, if I were to have my own children eventually, I fear how I will deal with every little mishaps that happens along the way. I can only pray to the Almighty G-d that He grants me righteous children, who will only need to be told once, what is good and bad, and always follow the good.

      So, this may be hard for you to hear, but in my opinion, you have no more obligations towards your kids. Once they start making adult decisions with adult consequences, they are on their own. They made their bed, now they have to sleep in it–sometimes literally. If they come back to you, you should give them an ultimatum: if you are willing to abide by my rules unconditionally, you may stay by me; if not, go back to your mom!” That simple. It may be hard, but now you have to protect yourself. I will do my best to keep you in my prayers.

      • xander cross

        You say that you’re a good citizen, but I question this by the way you type your posts. Nevertheless, you may be a good person to whites but you’re defiently not nice to black people and I can tell by the way your post your comments. Let’s face you, you’re a racist, just like ron paul is.

        • Guido

          Yeah, A.S. You’re a racist and a hate monger. I bet you’re so full of hate, you even hate yourself, which I think makes you an anti-semite, too. I bet you’re the guy who bit the lips off that kitten. How can you live with yourself being so full of hate? I bet the only thing that keeps you from killing yourself is your hatred of the rest of us. That makes you a racist, too, because some of us are different races and you hate us. Why can’t you be more like your brother from a different mother, Xander? He’s full of love and he tries to share it with you every day.

          • A.S.

            I sure hope you are being sarcastic…

        • A.S.

          No actually if I lived as an adult during Oliver North’s time (I was a mere child), I would have loved to kill him because of Rex84. He wanted to round up all Blacks, just like all Japanese were during WWII, during Martial Law.

          Just because I make observations that it is Blacks doing things all the time, doesn’t make me a racists. I am sure Michael Snyder would agree with me. And if you are calling me a racist, you might as well call him a racist too, because he put up those articles that show only blacks committing crimes.

          If you ever come to Israel, visit me and talk to people who know me and they will tell you what I think about other races, peoples, etc.

          • GunshineState

            A.S., why even dignify such nonsense with a response? People always cry “racism” because it puts the alleged racist on the defensive. Besides, EVERY white person is a racist if they aren’t a slobbering liberal so you’ll never win anyways. The only way to win is to not play. Ignore it!

  • MB92083

    Michael, I see Gary2 sent you a picture to post with this article. Always wondered what he looked like.

  • MB92083

    One related comment about the WI shooting. Interesting how this is called an act of domestic terrorism and a hate crime before any facts are known, and the Ft, Hood shooting after all the facts are in is called a workplace incident.
    I had the same exact thoughts. The DOJ, led by Eric (my people) Holder, with Obongo’s blessing, treated Ft Hood as a law enforcement case, not domestic terrorism. Guess only white men are domestic terrorists in the Fed’s eyes.

    • Gary2

      Holder is a joke. On this we agree. Michael–I think you look better with hair.

      • MB92083

        that was kind of funny, actually. But could we put the tagline under the pic, “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me?”

    • MisterC

      Obummer wants the Ft. Hood shooter and the 9-11 suspects(innocent until proven guilty) tried in civilian courts not by military tribunal. Thus, the ‘law enforcement case’ not ‘terrorism’ case of Ft. Hood. Why? A muslim does not want to sign the death warrant for a fellow musilim! If sentenced to death by tribunal, as POTUS he would have to sign the death warrant(s).

  • Dave Webb

    I think it is sad. We have a situation where a lot of young people will never see 21. Does anyone else see a physical problem here? Watch TV some night. It is all about police shows and violence. The small town sheriff that knows everyone with a homespun attitute is extinct.
    Is that all they can write about? Violence and doing wrong seem to be “entertainment”.
    The Roman empire fell. Historians talk about Mercury gradually infiltrating the water supply. Well we have plenty of that going on. Look at the substances in your vaccines. Look at the family dentist using the wrong type of fillings.You know the ones, after awhile they drip poisons into your body. Our rate of children with disabilities has grown way out of proportion to the numbers out there.
    I wonder how many of those kids went to Sunday School every Sunday morning? How about their parents. Bet they didn’t go either. But I bet you could see them at the neighborhood bar on a Friday or Saturday night.
    Our corrupt court system is partially to blame. 30 days? How about 5 years. And lets not give them a comfortable lifestyle in jail. How about a special armed forces made especially for them? Our forefathers took juvenile delinquints from bad families and placed them in the Navy for 4 years. The Navy didn’t like it. But they did succeed in getting quite a few of them settled down into good citizens. This was back in the 50s.
    The Bible had something to say about it. If you were caught stealing, then you had to pay the victim back 5 times what you stole. Sort of took the profit right out of stealing. Our answer is to give them a jail cell for a month or six. They are costing everyone money rotting in jail. They get their health care for free! We need a program that isolates the children of crime and provides discipline for them. After a few weeks of basic training a lot of them became honest citizens.
    It doesn’t do any good to give a young person a criminal record for life. They are desperately crying for help and no one is listening.
    We need to refinance our city police departments. They are running around trying to keep order and they are very outnumbered. But I don’t really want police that won’t follow the law and the constitution. I want people that are there when I need them. That is a good portion of the problem. Most poor people do not have any faith in the police at all. The police deserve it. They are not trained to gain the respect of their communities anymore. Too often the only contact with police most people have is a traffic violation. That is not what those people are there for.
    The entire justice system will have to be overhauled before we see a reversal in the crime scene out there in today’s world. So I am not surprised at the locks on the doors, the dogs, and the need for guns.

  • Chris

    According to dictionary.com, a psychopath is “a person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.”

    This could fit exactly your politicians. So not only are you surrounded by sociopaths and psychopaths they rule over you too. Basically your society doesn’t stand a chance of survival with these people being the ‘example’. Your youngsters have seen your ‘leaders’ lie to get into foreign wars for resources and no one gets charged. Rampant corruption and manipulation and no one gets charged. The people at the top are to blame, they set the example and the agendas.

    Personally I’ve become desensitized with all of the gun violence in this country and I’m sure I’m not alone. Every murder or massacre that occurs I just say or think “another one” and move on with little emotion other than to pray for those who are suffering from loss. Sadly it will not stop but only get worse. When THE REVOLUTION comes every man, woman, and child will be a target. Even many of the top 1% will be targets unless they move out of the country. No turning back…it’s coming….

  • A.S.

    Time for the average citizen to set stings/traps, just like the police do. For instance, purposely leave the keys in your car. Then hide. If you see someone that looks like a thug get in and start the engine, shoot to kill. One less sociopath to put away in prison at the expense of tax payers.

    • MB92083

      Only “peace officer’s” are allowed to execute criminal’s like that AS. You and I get charged with homocide. There is nothing more important than officer safety.

    • Gay Veteran

      According to dictionary.com, a sociopath is “a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.”

      so you advocate setting a trap and murdering someone who is trying to steal your property

      and you have the nerve to think you’re a moral person?

      • Randome-11

        That atitude is exactly why there is so much crime in your country.

      • A.S.

        So how would you respond if your car was stolen then the next day you see someone driving it? Would you call the police? They wouldn’t care less. I would follow that person and tell them, “hey, that is my car! get out or else!” If all they give you is swear words, shoot to kill.

        According to the U.S. Constitution, you have the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Happiness that been defined as “property.” Just like that old lady chasing to kill those thugs, we should do the same. Trap or not, it is irrelevant.

        Sometimes I see keys in someone’s running card when I walk where I live. But I would never even think of getting in just to sit. If I were to do that–just sit and nothing else–I would deserve whatever happens to me.

        • A.S.

          I meant “running car”

        • Gay Veteran

          you’re not using lethal force to protect yourself, you’re using it to get your car back

          sorry, you don’t get to play judge, jury and executioner

          using your “logic”, we should just use a gun to get back the money stolen by the banksters (and some bigots would say “Jewish banksters”)

          • A.S.

            There is a verse in the Talmud that states,
            “if your enemy comes into your land on SHABBAT and their only intent is to just steal straw, you are obligated to arm yourself and shoot to kill…”

            That said, using guns is to also protect your property. The moment someone breaks into your home, shoot to kill (even on Shabbat (generally we are not allowed to use things like guns on Shabbat because it is a forbidden object to manipulate).

            Regarding getting back your money from banksters, it can only be done the moment it happens and you actually see who did that to you. So, no, you misinterpreted my logic as usual, because you are a moron.

            And regarding the car experiment, I would give a warning, “hey, that’s my car. get out now.” If they refuse, then shoot to kill.

          • Mal R.

            Actualy, in my state it’s absolutely legal to kill someone to protect yourself and YOUR PROPERTY. as it should be.

    • vancouver mark

      Wow, AS, you sound like you’d fit right in with those fascist Israeli settlers. If the Arab steps on your sidewalk, shoot to kill, right?

      I sincerely hope you find your way to Jesus before it’s too late.

      • A.S.

        We are not settlers; we are the resistance. Israel is Jewish land forever. The so-called Palestinians are the settlers, usurpers, murderers, etc. They are taught from pre-school to hate Jews, Israel, and yes, even America. What do we teach in pre-school? The Hebrew Alphabet, basic Torah (Bible), how to respectful to parents, teachers, adults. I challenge you to go to any Jewish school, even in a “settlement” (as you call it) and find even one hateful lecture by a teacher. Find even one hateful comment by a rabbi during his service in any synagogue anywhere in the world. It will be very hard. But among them, oh, you find it in every mosque, especially in London and Paris, where the nationals are stupid enough to protect such hate speech.

        • Gay Veteran

          too bad Israel can’t exist without foreign aid from US

          • A.S.

            Actually, we can. The whole thing is a myth from the corporate media you claim you don’t watch. It amazes me to read your comments, because most of them are straight from corporate media. If you listen to other sources, you will see that Israel’s existence has never depended on foreign aid. We don’t want U.S. blood money. All we want is emotional support: whatever we do to defend ourselves, the U.S. should approve of our actions…

            BTW, the GDP of Israel is 343 billion US$; the aid is around 3 (benefit of the doubt, 4) billion US$. So that is a little over 1%. The U.S. can take that 1% and shove it you know where. You actually believe that 1% tips the scales and helps us? Keep on repeating the corporate media you claim you don’t watch…

          • A.S.

            Correction: 243 billion. So, still, about 2% is nothing. We can survive without it.

      • A.S.

        And if you call Israelis fascist settlers, you must also call the early Americans ruthless murderous settlers. If you think Israel should give away the West Bank to so-called Palestinians, then the U.S. should take its own advice: give back most of the country to Native Americans, instead of a tiny peace of land here and there. So you see, its not that simple. Why to you give a double standard to Israel. And I bet if Canada shot one single missile into the U.S., the U.S. would respond with brute force. Why can’t Israel do the same? So who is the fascist, bigot, war-monger now?

        • xander cross

          I seriously believe that your lying about your situation. Something does not add up with you and gudio. Personally, you might be a very nice person, but your views is suspect.

          • A.S.

            What situation am I lying about? What views of mine are suspect? If you want to know more about me, just ask me questions. I am willing to be friends with non-Jews so long as I find them respectful and true to who they are. FYI, I avoid fellow religious Jews, who I do not approve of due to their actions.

          • Gay Veteran

            I would be quite happy if the Israeli govenment stopped taking our foreign aid and our weapons.

            btw, have you served in the Israeli military? or are you one of those ultra-orthodox Jews who legally evade serving their country while taking subsidies from tax-paying secular Israelis

          • A.S.

            I made Aliyah to Israel when I was too old to serve in the IDF. I would very happy to serve. Part of the problem of the what you call the Ultra Orthodox not wanting to serve is that 1. women also serve and 2. their level of kosher food is not offered. Lubavichers, like myself, serve with pride in their own men-only units. And I would also be very happy if U.S. aid to Israel stopped; this way, Israel could do what it wants without asking for permission from the U.S.

            Come to Israel and you will see how “settlers” live–in trailer parks because Obama imposes a building freeze on Jews–while their Arab neighbors get to build what they want, property tax free. Is that fair? How would you like it when the illegal Mexicans get a free pass, and allowed to build what they, where they want, without a building permit, without paying any taxes, and on top of that, free health care and thousands of dollars per year for every child. The U.S. imposed this on Israel, and their punishment will be getting at least 20 million legalized illegals, getting everything and paying nothing for it. I will very pleased when people like you will suffer because of the illegals. Why? Because you caused it upon yourself by holding ultra-liberal beliefs. It is only months away because Obama needs the vote of illegals.

        • vancouver mark

          AS – I DO “call the early Americans ruthless murderous settlers,” and Canadians too for that matter. But in Canada First Nations people have had the same legal rights and freedoms as every other citizen for my whole lifetime. What equal rights do any Palestinians enjoy?
          And I do see a difference between a genocide that happened centuries ago and one that is being perpetuated in my own lifetime, partially funded against my will by my own fucking money, supported by my own wretched government. When apartheid finally fell in South Africa the world was rid of one sick malignancy. When zionism finally falls it will be rid of another.

          And listen to you, sir, in this thread you’re fantasizing about murdering strangers for touching your car, and assassinating Oliver North apparently, and go on to gush how in the Talmud it tells you to shoot to kill someone for just stealing straw. You sound lovely. Would you describe most of your countrymen as like-minded? That would explain a few things.

          And I wouldn’t be all that enthusiastic about the prophecies for Israel. Yes, as they initially sell their souls and children to the AntiChrist they will enjoy his prosperity, but ultimately, well, who really WANTS to wade around knee-deep in blood?

          • A.S.

            1. Use proper terminology: there is no such thing as Palestinians. This concept was created by the British during the British Mandate over “Palestine.” Their whole plan was to create a thorn in the Middle East then they fled like a crying baby. So who are the so-called Palestinians? Mostly Jordanian terrorists that fled Jordan because the King of Jordan wanted to kill them since they were trouble makers in their own country. Learn real history before you repeat the corporate media you always claim you do not watch.

            2. Although it was a very sad system, maybe there was no other way around, other than keep Apartheid in South Africa. Since Apartheid ended, the SA Rand became a weak currency, when before it was on par with the UK Pound. Since Apartheid ended, place like Johannesburg is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. You have a much better chance getting killed by getting car-jacked–by blacks (not whites)–than any other violent crime. People are fleeing South Africa in droves. If you think when Israel will fall things will be better, you are delusional.

            3. When did I want to kill someone touching my car–no stealing my car. And people like Oliver North, once he admitted his crimes, which Black person wouldn’t want to do it himself? And it would be justified in my book, so based on this alone, I am not a racist.

            4. And yes, the Talmud does state to do such a thing. Why? To show our enemies we are not to be pushed around. How would you react if someone broke into your home. You wake up. Get a gun. They scream, “don’t shoot, please don’t shoot. All I want is a quarter to buy a cup of coffee from the machine.”

            5. You should believe in the prophecies about Israel if you are a real Christian. If you don’t, then you will die with the rest of the evil people of the world.

            As I remember, there were Palestinian British units during WWII. The soldiers in these units were Jews. It’s been a while, but I seem to remember reading the people who call themselves Palestinians today should be more properly termed Trans-Jordanians.

    “To secure peace is to prepare for war.”
    Karl Von Clausewitz

    “Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence…from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable…the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference—they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”
    George Washington

    “The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend on God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.”

But the simplest thing is difficult….Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.”
    Karl Von Clausewitz

    “With all my devotion to the Union and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relatives, my children, my home. I have therefore resigned my commission in the Army, and save in defense of my native State, with the sincere hope that my poor services may never be needed, I hope I may never be called on to draw my sword…”[Something he never wanted to do, but being a man of honor and as he said in another famous quote a man of duty he reluctantly did: "Do your duty in all things.

      • A.S.

        Show me where it says, “separation of church and state.” The U.S. Constitution prohibits church sponsored religion or prohibiting a particular religion in the public arena. Therefore, there would be nothing wrong with providing one room for Christian to meet to hold their prayers, one room for Jews, one room for Muslims, etc. There would be nothing wrong with having a Christmas tree and Menorah and whatever Muslims have, all in the same place in each city hall square.

        After all, the U.S. Supreme Court has the 10 Commandments. So, don’t you think the people that make the rules, should hold by the rules? Why doesn’t Gay Veteran write to the U.S. Supreme Court telling them to take down the 10 Commandments? Let me know when you do and what their response is; just curious.

        And there would be nothing wrong with students proselytizing on school grounds according to the U.S. Constitution. And please don’t give me the above “separation of church and state” b.s., because this in itself is liberal propaganda from the news, society, whatever. When I went to school, no student would ever be suspended for wearing a t-shirt acknowledging Jesus. Obviously I would not talk to such a person, and I would avoid him if he were to come up to me, but that his free choice and I have my free choice.

        • xander cross

          There is no such thing as free choice.

          • A.S.

            G-d gives man free choice.

          • Michael

            Yes, free will is a very real thing.

            I am amazed that anyone believes that we don’t have free will.

            And if we don’t have free will, then why blame anyone for anything that they do?

            Michael

          • A.S.

            Thank you Michael.

            It seems that Xander Cross pretends to be a Christian, when he misses the most basic principle in the Judeo-Christian faith: that man has free choice given to him by G-d.

            And it really seems Gay Veteran hates all religious people by using the term “indoctrination.” I use the more preferred terms: instruction, teaching.

            And I can’t tell what Guido stands for.

            You know who I respect (so long at they don’t preach hate), even if I don’t agree with them: someone who is true to their beliefs and will not waver; someone who is consistent their whole life and career. Therefore, I can’t stand a flip-flopper in politics. Who is the only one that has never been a flip-flopper? Ron Paul. He is the only one who makes sense, honest, respectful, courteous, and honorable. Whoever hates Ron Paul and deems him a racist has no clue what the U.S. Constitution is about, what America really is, and what a religious man really stands for. Obviously he has no hope of being POTUS, but at least he has rattled a few chains and made some listen. I know for a fact that if Ron Paul could have made through the Republican primaries, he would have been voted for by ALL religious Jews.

            FYI, as a religious Jew, I can safely say most religious Jews would want the U.S. to stop giving ALL money, funds, protection (more like the other way around), etc., to Israel. Israel can survive on its own as a sovereign nation. It does not need the U.S. to make demands on it. So, you can have back your billions of dollars of blood money (our blood). Read the Bible about how one day will come when Israel will have all the blessings–every material need possible–and the nations of the world will have nothing; and they all will come to Israel begging for forgiveness just to get scraps to eat. No, that is not being racist. It is straight from the Bible. So if you think it is racist, call the Bible racist. And if you call the Bible racist, then you are calling G-d racist. And if you do that…stand back everyone…

        • Gay Veteran

          “…there would be nothing wrong with providing one room for Christian to meet to hold their prayers, one room for Jews, one room for Muslims, etc….”

          you must be posting from Israel, students have the right to form religious clubs in school

          “…There would be nothing wrong with having a Christmas tree and Menorah and whatever Muslims have, all in the same place in each city hall square….”

          is your religion so weak you need the power of the state to promote it? are there no churches, etc. to display these religous icons?

          “…After all, the U.S. Supreme Court has the 10 Commandments. So, don’t you think the people that make the rules, should hold by the rules? Why doesn’t Gay Veteran write to the U.S. Supreme Court telling them to take down the 10 Commandments? Let me know when you do and what their response is; just curious….”

          again, you must be posting from Israel. Are the 10 commandments all by themselves at the Supreme Court? or are they part of a historical display of other important events in the evolution of law?

          “…And there would be nothing wrong with students proselytizing on school grounds according to the U.S. Constitution….”

          and I’m sure you would be very comfortible if Muslims, Wiccans, or ultra-right-wing fundamentalists (teaching hatred of Jews) did the same

          • A.S.

            So long as no hate is being taught during proselytizing, everyone should have the freedom to do it any public arena: schools, courts, city hall, any public building, etc. That is what the U.S. Constitution guarantees.

            And yes, I am in Israel. I moved there about 6 years ago. I am an American that deeply loves my former country. I am very saddened at where we are at and what we have become. You may misinterpret my words as racist, but I am a very committed Orthodox Jew, responsible citizen, have exceptional social responsibility, and follow the U.S. Constitution as well (although our laws are more just and humane, such as it being extremely difficult to execute someone under capital punishment).

        And by using the word “indoctrination,” make religious belief sound evil. You know what is indoctrination: whatever you were taught that gives you your perverted beliefs. Teaching kids about sex and GLBT is true indoctrination. That is why people like Gay Veteran and Xander Cross should have ABSOLUTELY NO CONTACT WITH ANY KIDS.

        • xander cross

          The problem with you A.S. is very simple. You’re an idiot, just like ron paul is. I sorry, but I can’t take anything you, or ron paul says seriously.

            Xander–I have been telling you conservatives are by and large all racists.

            Regardless of how they try to deny it when you call them out all you need to do is read their posts.

          • A.S.

            Ron Paul is America’s last hope. People laughed at Ross Perot. And now look at where we are. He was right 100%. Can we afford not to listen to Ron Paul’s policies even if he doesn’t win? Let’s accomplish these as a bare minimal:

            1. Ron Paul wins (100% unlikely)
            2. Everything Obama and Bush signed gets overturned (100% unlikely with an unconstitutional SCOTUS, given what they have already done)
            3. The U.S. removes its membership from the U.N. and kicks the U.N. out
            4. The U.S. removes its membership from NATO
            5. The U.S. removes its membership from all free-trade (unfair-trade more likely) agreements like NAFTA
            6. Everyone in Congress except for Ron Paul is fired
            7. Try and convict all the bankers and wall street who really caused the economic downturns.
            8. Bring back all the U.S. troops from all the illegal wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and the two new ones, Syria and Iran)
            9. And oh, the most important one, END THE FEDERAL RESERVE

          • Mal R.

            “I have been telling you conservatives are by and large all racists. Regardless of how they try to deny it when you call them out all you need to do is read their posts.”

            Yep, and despite your ignorance the entire existence of the party you support is exemplified by racism.

            Hey BTW, you ascribe racism to conservatives based on ‘their posts’ so are you claiming to be a racist, rapist and a terrorist since you have proclaimed yourself an Occupy Wall Street member and that’s all a matter of record, not just your supposition?

            BTW, I’m married to a born in Tijuana Mexican woman so how do you imagine that plays out – I go home and beat her and call ICE every night?

        • Gay Veteran

          “And by using the word “indoctrination,” make religious belief sound evil. You know what is indoctrination: whatever you were taught that gives you your perverted beliefs. Teaching kids about sex and GLBT is true indoctrination. That is why people like Gay Veteran and Xander Cross should have ABSOLUTELY NO CONTACT WITH ANY KIDS.”

          sorry, but no one taught me “perverted beliefs”, I was raised in a Southern Baptist household.

          again, you imply I’m a pedophile. you do know that one of the most evil lies told by the Nazis about the Jews was that Jews were pedophiles.

          • A.S.

            And yet the German people believe the lies because they were told by the gov’t. Just like Americans are sold on all the lies their own gov’t tells them. See my above comment what I would like to be accomplished before I come back to the U.S.

            BTW, I am sorry if I projected too much as to who you are; I do not know you. You may after all be a good person, albeit have a lifestyle I don’t approve of.

            But you have to understand where I am coming from too: maintaining the purity of children should be one of the highest goals of parents and educators. Children need to be taught proper morals, manners, and social responsibility. They will not get that in a public school and not even in a private school these days. And for sure, not from a big city like NYC, Chicago, LA, etc. That is why it is one of dreams to establish a Jewish version of an Amish-like village somewhere in the U.S., away from all the evils of society. But you know what? Most likely we too will be hunted down by the evil FDA for producing our own food. We will be hunted down by the IRS for taxes, where an income doesn’t exist in the first place. We will be hunted down for not being “in-the-grid” because we will produce our own power and purified water.

            Maybe now you understand a bit more about me. I am for complete freedom of every individual, but not at the cost of causing any detriment to another. Essentially, you have the freedom to do as you please, but you have to be socially responsible before you earn that freedom. For instance, you don’t have the right to sell milk if you know there is a chance of cancer being caused to that individual (yes, I know, this is against Monsanto, but they deserve it). You don’t have the right to check someone’s person unless you have an above reasonable belief they may be dangerous (yes, I know, this is against all TSA, but they deserve it). Let’s go to the positive. You do have a right to say your religious beliefs without retaliation (yes, I know, this is against the city of Chicago for banning more Chick-Fil-A). You do have have a right to wear any t-shirt you want so long as it is not truly hateful (even though I am Jewish, I fully support students wearing Jesus t-shirts to school).

            I could go on and on…I am just tired of seeing and hearing good people being treated like dirt and bad people being applauded, excused, ignored, etc. This is truly the time of the End of Days right before Moshiach (Messiah) comes. I will speak out against against any evil, even if done by a Jew!

        • Gay Veteran

          A.S.: “And it really seems Gay Veteran hates all religious people by using the term “indoctrination.”…”

          you’re projecting, I don’t hate religious people, only those who seek to use the power of the state to impose THEIR version of religion on everyone else

          and I have finally figured you out, you think Jews are superior to everyone else

          • A.S.

            How am I using the state to promote my religion if I don’t mind students walking around in a Jesus t-shirt?

          • A.S.

            What I am referring to is the many stories you hear of students being expelled from school when someone complained about them, just because they were wearing a Jesus t-shirt (I forget which article it is by Michael).

            If I were the principal, I would most likely stand by that student and warn the “accuser,” “if you complain one more time, you are the one that is going to be expelled.” The student was not harming anyone, and if he gets such a reaction, I can only imagine what would happen if he wore a Ron Paul 2012 t-shirt; most likely he would be expelled from the whole district for good. And if he wore a t-shirt advocating raw milk and organic foods, who knows, he would have been murdered on the spot.

            This is the problem in today’s world: good people, who care about their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, are seen as evil, while the evil complains, controls, subdues, etc., everyone around them, who do not conform to their evil beliefs. Sometimes it is like talking to a wall, given the posts from many people here.

          • GunshineState

            All Jews believe that, it’s in the Talmud. You should read it sometime. I like A.S.’s posts but he’s also very lucky that he has a country to escape to. Us goyische kopfs aren’t so lucky.

          • A.S.

            To GunshineState,

            I am already in Israel. I am not coming back unless there is a major turnover in the political structure, which is very unlikely:
            1. Ron Paul wins (100% unlikely)
            2. Everything Obama and Bush signed gets overturned (100% unlikely with an unconstitutional SCOTUS, given what they have already done)
            3. The U.S. removes its membership from the U.N. and kicks the U.N. out
            4. The U.S. removes its membership from NATO
            5. The U.S. removes its membership from all free-trade (unfair-trade more likely) agreements like NAFTA.
            6. Everyone in Congress except for Ron Paul is fired
            7. Try and convict all the bankers and wall street who really caused the economic downturns.
            8. Bring back all the U.S. troops from all the illegal wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and the two new ones, Syria and Iran)
            9. And oh, the most important one, END THE FEDERAL RESERVE

            This is essentially what Ron Paul says. So if you think Ron Paul is crazy for wanting to implement all of these, then there is no more hope for America.

            And all non-Jews are welcome to live in Israel so long at they can abide by the 7 Noahide Laws. If you want to be taught this, go to your local Chabad synagogue/center: http://www.chabad.org. Israel will be the only place of refuge for Jews and non-Jews who keep the 7 Noahide Laws. All the rest of the world will kill each other off during WWIII. So, what is your choice: live as a “second class citizen” or die a long painful death?

        Michael,

        I just listened to that show. One questions was asked, which was not answered: “why would the U.S. train foreign troops, on U.S. soil, with U.S. tax payers money?”

        The answer is simple: because most U.S. military will either desert or refuse orders to murder their fellow Americans. The US gov’t knows this and in anticipation of such an event, will have foreign troops do this. So who will do this? Russians. Chinese. Any other country that hates us.

        • GunshineState

          No, it’ll be like “The Turner Diaries” where the minorities, whipped up by anti-white sentiment, will be eagerly salivating to be turned loose to rob, rape and murder. The whites and few decent minorities will rush home to save their own families. I guess saying this makes me a racist but oh well. It’s bound to happen, all you have to do is look at the MSM who are pushing it as hard as they possibly can. Their propaganda makes the USSR look like Shakespeare but it doesn’t have to work on whites, that’s just an added bonus. The sooner we realize this the sooner we can prepare for reality. I fled the “vibrant diversity” because I had far too much experience with it even under the so-called rule of law. God only knows how horrible it will be once that finally crumbles, or they disarm us. If you allow that to happen, might as well kill yourself and your whole family first because a gunshot to the head will look like heaven compared to what they have planned for whitey. Just ask South Africa all about it….

          • A.S.

            Thank G-d there is at least one person that sees my posts as being truthful as to what is coming. And regarding South Africa, here is a quote from one of my above posts:

            Although it was a very sad system, maybe there was no other way around, other than keep Apartheid in South Africa. Since Apartheid ended, the SA Rand became a weak currency, when before it was on par with the UK Pound. Since Apartheid ended, place like Johannesburg is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. You have a much better chance getting killed by getting car-jacked–by blacks (not whites)–than any other violent crime. People are fleeing South Africa in droves. If you think when Israel will fall things will be better, you are delusional.

            So, call me racists for implying that Blacks can’t live under Democracy, because that means they have to make a living for themselves, honestly, and since most can’t, they resort to terror-like tactics. That is why sometimes a system like Apartheid is a good thing. And to make a connection: go to Gaza. After 6 years of having autonomy, and billions of dollars and Euros given to them, but stolen by people like Arafat and his replacements, it still looks like a war-zone. Why? Because these people don’t know how to live under Democracy and make an honest day’s work. Am I a racists for pointing this out? Before you call me a racists, then go to Gaza yourself and ask the locals who stole the money that came from the U.S. and E.U. I bet you will be hanged for such questions.

    I believe in a creator, but man created the GOD. Values, morality, and Love is not a religious commodity. It is taught by the FAMILY. Socialized education; we send our children to strangers that educated them on the facts of life. Our government have allowed Banks, Medical and Food industries to sell very misleading spins to the public consumer. All the movies, destructive video games and music are provided by adults that run corporations and make millions of dollars. So one thing the Bible which have 14,000 revisions and translated in multiple languages “money is the root of all evil”. Man’s quest for money in an economic collapse is 100% from the politicians that scams citizens. Funny working citizens in all countries have the same problem their government. Government is not the answer it is the problem. Re-instate Glass Steagall

    “for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator…(Romans 1:25). “Secular humanism” in a nutshell.

    There were about 225,000 people in America’s prisons just before we swapped out the Bible for the foolishness of Darwinism in our schools and public institutions. Today there are close to 2.2 million incarcerated souls in this country. The children of Darwin. Our families are wrecked, our economy is wrecked, and we imprison more people than any country in history. An exact rversal of America’s prior good fortunes.

        “a lot of people are in prision because of our “war on drugs”. it didn’t work against alcohol and it won’t work against drugs”

        Too bad you cant use your moment of clarity to surmise that gigantic govt always becomes oppressive and murderous and nationalizing production and resources never works. Ahh well. Maybe when your own kind is marching you off to a camp for reeducation.

        “sorry if Darwin knocked man off his pedestal” When did that happen? Say it with me. THEORY. You’ll never prove man squirmed outta the primordial slime, so at best your belief is based on FAITH. *gasp* But religious conservatives all cretins for having faith…

    This has all been well underway since the days of Adam Weishaupt. There is a well organized effort in America to destroy white culture and Christianity. Not so funny, is it?? About as funny as the unnecessary war of choice based on LIES in Iraq that killed over a million innocent Iraqi civilians.

    • Colin

      “There is a well organized effort in America to destroy white culture and Christianity.”

      I have heard your sentiments before. They were uttered by the Ku Klux Klan. Their mission since their creation, and rebirth, has been to preserve the white culture and Christianity in America. Here is the homepage for this group.

      http://kukluxklan.bz/

      “The Ku Klux Klan is THE only organization dedicated to preserving white culture! We stand for family values, the American Constitution, our representative Republic, freedom of religion and western culture. We stand for the values of our nations forefathers. Who else will speak for Whites? What Preacher, Professor, Doctor or Attorney. What group or organization defends the rights of white people? What politician dares to be honest enough to speak up for you.
      The black has the NAACP, the “Native Americans” AIM, the Hispanic, La Rasa; there are representative organizations for every culture, even people who are in this country illegally have institutions that work in their interest. White people are NOT allowed to be represented in any way to any degree or they are RACISTS! Simple dignity is not permissible for the White Christian, he must grovel in shame to be politically correct.”

    Deuteronomy 28:53-57

    Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)

    “53 and thou hast eaten the fruit of thy body, flesh of thy sons and thy daughters (whom Jehovah thy God hath given to thee), in the siege, and in the straitness with which thine enemies do straiten thee.

    54 `The man who is tender in thee, and who [is] very delicate — his eye is evil against his brother, and against the wife of his bosom, and against the remnant of his sons whom he leaveth,

    55 against giving to one of them of the flesh of his sons whom he eateth, because he hath nothing left to him, in the siege, and in the straitness with which thine enemy doth straiten thee in all thy gates.

    56 `The tender woman in thee, and the delicate, who hath not tried the sole of her foot to place on the ground because of delicateness and because of tenderness — her eye is evil against the husband of her bosom, and against her son, and against her daughter,

    57 and against her seed which cometh out from between her feet, even against her sons whom she doth bear, for she doth eat them for the lacking of all things in secret, in the siege and in the straitness with which thine enemy doth straiten thee within thy gates.”

    QUOTE: “Once upon a time you could trust just about everybody, but these days it is difficult to find anyone that you can truly trust.”

    The author forgot to mention that most of the psychopaths are in positions of power in our country and have decided on a future of endless wars and economic ruination. They have deliberately marginalized all of the God-fearing, Constitution-loving people and “terrorists,” “nativists,” and “isolationists.”

    They are dividing and conquering us each and every day until the point is reached where people just can’t take anymore and snap.

  • Guido

    Perhaps we need to tighten up on the basics? People are showing they can’t seem to function without a little more fiber in their life, so let’s cut back on the liberal nonsense.

    It’s time to lock the crazies up again like we used to before we thought it was better to let them out to scare the public and sleep on the streets.

    It’s time to bring back capital punishment and to streamline it so rapists, murderers, child molesters, kiddie porn makers, etc are tried, granted all their appeals in one go, and executed quickly.

    Oh, and since the rule of law doesn’t seem to mean much anymore, it’s time to start holding the more powerful and wealthy among us to a higher standard, not a lower one. If you steal a hundred dollars, you go to jail. If you steal a billion, we kill you. A crackhead with a gun sucks, but a cokehead with a suit could wreck the economy.

    I can’t help thinking we need to let the cops bring stick time back for our more colorful idiots. Like the guy who tried to run over the cop the other day with his ferarri in NYC. Yeah, he needed some wall-to-wall attitude readjustment with the police. Or if you call 911 because your burger was cold? Yep, you get some stick time, too.

    We can’t legislate morality, but if you’re a butthead, we might be able to help you fix that one…

    • vancouver mark

      And the cops who unleash attack dogs on mothers holding young babies? Who delivers the “stick time” to them?

      • Guido

        Ahhh, you’re a good one. I was merely floating an idea. Have you got an alternative? Perhaps a better idea? Then, please, feel free to share with the group. It’s easy to shoot others down without actually contributing. Whatcha got to answer my suggestion that perhaps we need to drop the touchy-feely crap and go back to something a little harsher for our chronic troublemakers?

      • vancouver mark

        I don’t think I was just shooting you down. I asked a relevant question to clarify this idea you are floating.

        If you propose a society where wrong-doing results in serious “stick time” (which presumably does mean a damaging physical assault with a baton or truncheon, yes?), then will police officers who abuse their power and release attack dogs on infants and their mothers and so on be required to receive a damaging physical assault with a truncheon? If not, how is this fair, and if yes, who administers the damage?

  • Gary2

    Michael–what happened to your nose? I did not realize it was so crooked. Where you in a accident?

    • Mondobeyondo

      Oh dear. Not gonna comment any further on this one!

  • mondobeyondo

    Looks like Jared Loughner (the guy who shot 6 innocent people to death and wounded 19, including former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, in Tucson on Jan. 8, 2011) has finally gotten what he deserved… I guess.

    You see, he used to be crazy, according to the media and many social health professionals. “Crazy insane, got no brain”, as Cypress Hill would say. But after a year of psychiatric treatment, he’s no longer crazy! He’s now a SANE mass murderer! The judge declared him capable of standing trial, and Loughner pleaded guilty. Not “innocent by reason of insanity” – guilty. The good thing is he’ll never get out, and he has the next 60 or 70 years in prison to fully regain his sanity.

    It will be interesting to see if the Colorado theater shooter will take the same “out route”. He probably will. Why not, it worked for Loughner, and James Holmes (the theater shooter) is no idiot. When he was arrested, Holmes told cops that he was “the Joker”. Who was the Joker? An extremely intelligent, evil, conniving, twisted clown who was Batman’s nemesis. The Joker was not stupid. Heath Ledger played the role of the Joker to a “T”.

    There are lots more people out there like those two, as well as the Wisconsin shooter who shot the Sikhs at their temple. You won’t recognize them, because they are “shy” and “quiet” and “such nice people”. A common denominator seems to be, “Didn’t know him that well, cause he kept to himself. Seemed to be a really nice guy”. So, they blend in with everyone else – until the day you hear about them on the national news.

    Yes, you should be scared.

    • A.S.

      I heard it said that the joker is actually the good guy made to look like the bad guy. I think I saw it on http://www.infowars.com, where the Joker’s character is analyzed. All he wants to do is shake up the status quo that in itself is evil. He has no intention killing innocent people. All he wants to do is take down the evil elite. If innocent people get in the way or are collateral damage, it is a shame.

      • Mal R.

        Try reading about the joker somewhere credible. Didju even see the movie? The one where it starts out with him and cohorts robbing a bank and you see the Joker himself as trigger man, murdering several people, including his partners. And then there’s the whole making two ferries full of people decide who is gonna kill everyone on the other boat first.

        Somehow that equates to good guy to you?

      Well that is, unless the government can’t pay for prisons anymore, and the prisoners get released ….

    • DB200

      By the way, the movie itself, like all fictional movies these days, is occult.

      • Mondobeyondo

        Perhaps so. If the writers and producers of this film intended to portray reality…

        Well, ya know – I was going to say “they failed miserably”. Now, I’m not so sure. Art seems to be imitating life these days. Or is it life imitating art?

        Are you confused? Join the masses.

      That is because I am one of the most informed religious Jews, in the U.S. and Israel. I may not know the whole web of deceit, but day by day I am starting to see the reality of world affairs. And I am led to a conclusion: only G-d can protect you from what is coming; and only Israel will be a safe haven for Jews and Gentiles who observe the 7 Noahide Laws.

    Secondary psychopathy is becoming a world epidemic and can be effectively programmed into otherwise non-psychotic people. And we wonder why we have growing crime and police brutality?

    http://groups.colgate.edu/cjs/student_papers/2002/SBaird.pdf

    Psychopathic (primary) killers act without any delusion and empathy, without remorse, and suffer no guilt.

    Secondary psychopathy arises from conditions and training that yield to impulsiveness and loss of conscience. Typically these people may have lower intelligence, thought disorders, social anxieties or environmental issues.

    A 13 year old girl, adopted from Europe, killed the family dog after having abused him, and later tried to kill her aunt twice over small petty teenage stuff. Psychopaths hate to get caught! This is classic primary psychopathy or rather “conduct disorder”, a name given to those killers under age 16, typically having “attachment disorders” with the family, while being charming and manipulative in school and with other students. They are very sneaky and crafty. (Believe me, I know.)

  • Gil

    Uh huh. The terms “sociopath” and “psychopath” are woefully used to mean “jerk” or “dangerous criminal” when in fact 60% of criminals don’t qualify as psychopaths. The terms are supposed to refer to those who can’t empathise with others and oppose to those who chose not to or actually derive pleasure from the suffering of others.
