When the government is in your bedroom its time to put it to sleep. When there on your property its time to get rid of the terrorist. When the government is in your kitchen feed them some mushrooms. When the government is telling you what do do and wants to control you, Its time to mail them back to were they came from. When the government tells you that you have to buy there health insurance its time to take things very serious. When the government starts to take away your internet its time to regroup. When the government "SAID YOU HAVE NO CONSTITUTION" AND YOU HAVE NO FREEDOM, TAKE A GUESS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THIS COUNTRY OVERNIGHT. THERE NIGHTMARE WILL START TO BEGIN ESPICALLY WHEN THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE IRS AND ALL THOSE THAT WILL OPPOSE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL MAKE THREATS TO US FOR DEMANDS. I GUESS WHAT HAS HAPPEN IN ALL THOSE FOREIGN COUNTRIES THE GOVERNMENT UP RISING, AGAINST ALL THERE PEOPLE WILL REPEAT IN THIS ONCE FORSAKEN UNITES STATES.
This government has no budget this government can't control there spending,Corruption is so big in government now they want to take control because there time is running out.
Washington is out of control. This president has gone on so many on the taxpayers revenue, So many trips to other countries and it was unnecessay to travel when you can observe from the news media. Spending of tax payers dollars and no revenue. If we don't get a new government to take control of this current screwed up government we will be in a civi war.
"Fear is big business in America."
Just end the article there. I think it's safe to say that Americans (specifically USA citizens) are ruled by fear. They are so afraid of death they give up every right they were granted by the Constitution. Thanks to the push for selfish mindsets, shallow perceptions, materialism based goals there is no longer any real need to look outside the box. We've brought this upon ourselves by believing that we only have one shot (true) and so we have to protect it like a rare Pokemon or Magic card. Keep it in a sleeve; In a thick binder; with styrophoam to preserve it. As a result of this greed for self satisfaction we've come to view death as the worst thing in the world and we allow the US government to screw us with NDAA, TSA, Patriot Act, SOPA, Drones in US airspace and whatever else is thrown at us as the next "Security Measure" in order to FEEL safe. It's beyond pathetic. I'm wholly apathetic to a people that would embrace such cowardly way of living.
You can cling to your guns and your security systems; you can hold on to the government's hand; you can beg for protection from every boogey-man they warn you about... No matter what you have protecting you: You. Will. Die. Death is inevitable. You cower like a scared puppy when you should be embracing this fact and living with courage. My friends, you will die. Your friends will die. Your children will die. This can not be changed. Nor should it. So live as best you can. Instead of letting someone or something take away even the options of what is best.
And remember: Puppets don't live.
i was going to say,.........................
well, i changed my mind, i am afraid someone will not like what i want to say..
Paranoia is at epidemic levels in America now. It seems that everyone is afraid of something. We have hand sanitizer everywhere to protect us from germs, video surveilance everywhere to protect us from what ever, security screenings for almost everything, insurance plans for everything imaginable, and the list goes on and on. Some of them make a modicum of sense but many of the things that we fear are less likely to happen than winning the lottery or getting hit by lightening.
We like to brag about American rugged individualism but that left us long ago. Now we are becoming a bunch of spineless wimps who fear our own shadows in my opinion. Little wonder that many of our kids today are into 'extreme' sports. Everyone around them have become boring fraidy cats. LOL The good news is that they are our future if the cowards don't screw it up for them before they get their chance.
if this is the case should every participant in the Olympics then get a gold metal...making all of their personal efforts, sacrifice to be the best at the sport they are engaging in, meaningless..I think not. So, go for your dreams and if it includes money, a gold metal, the best family man or woman, a great friend, then, so be it.. Work for it, so not demand respect ..earn it
Thanks, Ms. Weston's silly little intern. Most people reading this article won't even comment and your "hit count" is mainly spam. Hope you're so proud of yourself as a budding media practitioner.
