Americans scream for their chains.

Americans are so fearful, brainwashed, dependent, or ignorant that they think like children and justify every law and overlook every abuse carried out by the government. They believe government workers are kind gods who can do no wrong. Americans would rather blame the victim of government abuse than the government. Americans feel that the government can run their lives better they can and that safety is more important than freedom.

Americans feel that the correct response to tyranny is surrender.

Americans think freedom only benefits other people. Americans believe that they will never be a victim of tyranny. Americans think the only possible way to solve any problem is force.

Americans are so fat, degraded, and drugged up that they eagerly allow themselves to be molested to ride a bus, offer their fingerprints to get a driver license, and open their bags to be searched so they can ride a subway.

If Americans are asked about the US debt, they respond that it doesn't matter because it is not real money and doesn't need to be paid back. Americans say the USA should start a trade war because there might be a war. Americans say tax breaks are theft. Americans think the post office should lose money.

Americans think the homeless should be beheaded. Americans insist that you can't have a society without concentration camps. Americans say everyone would be a slave if there was no minimum wage.

Americans feel everyone would be raped, stabbed, or shot by homosexuals if the US was a free country.

Americans think tyranny is acceptable if you live in a republic. Americans say the government should decide what the truth is instead of the media.

Americans defend NSA wiretapping because it's just metadata. Americans believe being molested by the TSA is good since they have nothing to hide. Americans say torture is okay because other countries do it. Americans even say the Bill of Rights should be abolished because George Washington owned slaves!

The collapse of the USA is disgusting and shameful.

Those who still support the government are just tools for the elites.

The US deserves everything coming to it.

Facebook blocks pages with MILLIONS of subscribers after CNN reports ties with RT by salvia_d in WorldPolitics

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

This article is potentially misleading.

  • It's an RT article, so it's biased. Reading it, you can see that.
  • It dismisses stuff out of hand by calling it names first. That's old-Daily Mail-style manipulation.
  • No CNN pages are being blocked.
  • The whole thing's misleading, really.

Get your news on this from another source.


Opinion: Alternatively, get rid of Facebook altogether. There are many alternatives; my favourite is the Fediverse.

??? I'm not even saying that the issue is significant, though I believe that it is! I'm just saying that we're focussing on the wrong numbers to determine whether it is significant.

We should be focusing on the net change in amount, and the difference between what is and what should be. Not gross figures. Does that make me right-leaning? I don't understand this whole "left right" thing.

Having a new boss won't change anything.

No one is going to work when everything is illegal and taxes pay for curfews, gun bans, NSA wiretapping, checkpoints, forfeiture, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, torture, kill lists, no fly lists, searches without warrants, private prisons, mandatory minimums, 3 strikes laws, DNA databases, CISPA, SOPA, NDAA, IMBRA, FBAR, FATCA, TSA groping, secret FISA courts, and Jade Helm.

The US stock market is a massive Ponzi scheme. There was a time when the stock market was based on reality, but that time is gone.

The stock gains have come from government cash injections and CEO's buying their own companies stocks back using company money to boost share prices and their own personal net worth.

The economy collapsed in 2008 and the government bailed out the bankers instead of arresting them. Nothing has been fixed.

Most people prefer to ignore a hard fact rather than face it.

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. There was a bubble in 2001 and 2008. Both times there was a crash. Is this time different?

If debt is good, why doesn't the government print and borrow money to send monthly checks for $500,000 to every American?

The lazy are being sent welfare checks.

94 million Americans are jobless.

Wages are flat. Minimum wages are going up only because of government decrees, not because of real free market growth.

Stocks are high only because of QE and the fantasy belief that the government can keep printing money to bail out companies forever.

Interest rates are low because the Fed is afraid to crash the economy and bankrupt the government with higher rates.

Oil prices are low because no one has any money anymore.

The US economy is a house of cards. A large chunk of the hollowed out US economy is basically just consumer, mortgage, student, and auto loans, government deficit spending, overpriced healthcare, and fast food/retail jobs.

How can anyone say the economy is good when wages are flat, corporate profits are falling, spending is falling, sales are falling, orders are falling, jobless claims are rising, gold is rising, stocks are falling, futures are falling, confidence is falling, net worth is falling, inventories are rising, and negative rates are being considered?

The US is headed for a complete economic collapse, a civil war, and WWIII.

Many people are complacent because their government checks are good now and they still have electricity and running water, but there is no doubt the US economy will collapse one day.

No country can print and borrow their way to wealth. Rome, Germany, Zimbabwe, Japan, and Greece couldn't do it.

The US economy might continue for 2 or 5 or 30 years, but one day the house of cards will crash. The US dollar will be worthless, there will be inflation, deflation, banks will shut, bankruptcies and foreclosures will rise, businesses will close, unemployment will soar, there will be bail-ins, capital controls, negative interest rates, riots, bank runs, bank holidays, and gold may be outlawed. Think 1929, 2008, and Greece all in one.

American jobs have been offshored, illegal immigrants are flooding the country, and the US is bankrupt. The government is punishing hard work with taxes and regulations while rewarding laziness with welfare. The government knows this fraud can't continue forever which is why they're building a police state and trying to start wars with Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China to distract Americans and boost the economy.

The world is now in another bubble and governments realize that they cannot print money forever.

The Fed has no more bullets, but the government has real ones.

Think.

What do we need government for anyway?

If a private association like the MPAA can regulate movies, why can't the private market regulate other things?

When the TSA fingers your asshole and pulls your cock, is the real purpose to protect you or to make you feel like a degraded slave?

When people smoke now, people just call the police on them, but people in the past either took some personal responsibility and ignored smokers, moved away from smokers, or asked smokers to go somewhere else. The problem with a police state is everyone now is either or a slave or a criminal. Who pays the taxes to pay for tyranny?

If smoking is dangerous, can't nonprofits raise funds to pay for educational campaigns that warn of the dangers of smoking instead of outlawing smoking?

Can't people use the BBB to verify if a business is good or not instead of forcing companies to pay fees to get a government business license?

Can't private charities funded by volunteer donations provide homeless shelters and soup kitchens instead of being at forced at the point of a gun by the government to pay taxes that fund welfare?

Can't people use to protect themselves instead of relying on the Gestapo?

Can't neighbourhoods hire private security firms to protect their homes?

Can't the free market provide toll roads?

Can't the free market provide private airports?

Can't the free market provide private schools?

Can't the free market provide disaster relief instead of FEMA?

Can't the free market run delivery services instead of the USPS?

Can't the free market run railroads instead of Amtrack?

Think.

I never found either side was good at listening.

"They" are intentionally destroying the left. From union busting, to "feminism", to SJWs, to blatantly rigged elections, and now full term abortions, etc. The "organized" corporate-left resembles an insane asylum and nothing of the authentic progressive-left. I hate even saying I lean left now. I lean Green, but will not abide astroturf.

I'm still not into religion or conservative sex issues but over the last few years I've grown to consume almost 50/50 media. Conservative-liberal, religious-atheist, whatever as long as they have authentic views. I may not agree with them but at least I'll understand them and their context. I've changed a lot of my views and am even more committed to others, yet respect the differences. I never would have thought I'd be for guns, Holocost and Climate denial, etc etc etc.

The privatized education argument in the article is terrible. It feels like this article is a Trojan horse against public schools, cause that's what the first two paragraphs covers.

I love it. NYT realizes that academia regards them as the paper of historical record. They take their propaganda seriously, but often leave nuggets of truth (where they can hide them).

It would be interesting to see if there was a big event in the news at the time that served as a distraction to the editors.

Me too. However, having been proven wrong on a number of issues, I have a profound respect for the right.

I don't necessarily agree, but I have found that the right is much more willing to listen, and change their view; based on clearly presented evidence.

The organized left struggles to accept change. IMO.

I would have said I'm on the left in the past, but that word has lost much of it's previous meaning.

Iran rejects anti-Semitism allegation by Pence - Iran on Saturday rejected accusations of anti-Semitism leveled against it by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, saying it respected Judaism but opposed Israel, which Tehran said was acting like a “killing machine against the Palestinians”. by magnora7 in WorldNews

[–]RoxannaHardbutt 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

AntiSemitism nuthin' ..

The Holocaust was an inside job Adolf Hitler and all of the top Nazis were Jews.

Whoever owing allegiance to the United States levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere is guilty of treason and shall suffer death. 18 USC Ch. 115, §2381.

Since Jews attacked the US on 911 AntiSemitism is a patriotic duty and a moral responsibility, thus true patriots insist the Jews who perpetrated the attacks be charged and brought to trial under the above statute, where after a jury conviction they suffer lawful execution.

With every member of the political, law enforcement and news dissemination hierarchies that spurn the evidence, and will have it the attacks were by mad Arabs with boxcutters .. that means VP Mike Pence as well.

Iranian AntiSemitism is False Flag hoax controlled opposition AntiSemitism, if the Iranians wanted to take the battle up to Jews thence Israel & Zionism in any way, all they need do is mention the Holocaust was an inside job that Hitler was a Jew and that Jews did 911.

 In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
 Cast truth at falsehood..
 The Koran, Chapter 21 verse 18.

As well the Iranians fail to "cast truth at falsehood" as per the injunction in the Koran, which identifies the whole lot as False Moslems and unbelievers.
