Hello Truth Seekers,
I've got 2 topics today, that I want your input on. Check them out, discuss, and leave your comment here and I might weigh in on it in an upcoming episode of #OffTheGrid.

Topic #1:
Discuss: Are you a millennial or the parent of millennial? How do you stay vigilant in politics? Or how do you make sure your children are informed and involved?

Topic #2:
The border crisis has taken over the political arena. But who's fault is it really? After all, the US is the number one arms dealer AND the number one drug abuser in the world. What should we do as a country?


-Jesse

*note- For questions to be able to be included in show, please keep them brief enough to be able to be written out and read on camera. I will continue to answer longer, more in-depth questions in the forum whenever possible

I'll go with topic number 1: I have talked to my kids all during they're childhood years about politics, Whatever was going on in the world was the hot topic for discussion at the dinner table that night. It kept them informed and interested so they could look up more info and start contributing to our conversations as well. They registered to vote so they can have somewhat of a say in at least who represented them.

Really you're going to blame the U.S. for being the number one arms dealer?

Just because a product is offered doesn't mean people should use said product.

If I offer you a cigarette and you smoke it is it my fault you're an idiot? No. You should know enough to refuse to smoke.

If I manufacture a weapon designed to shoot a deer and then you use the weapon to shoot a person is it then my fault?

If some person uses a vehicle as a weapon to run down pedestrians will you place blame on the auto industry?

Stop hating the U.S. and Americans.

It's our own Governments fault! If we stop the jobs and freebies, enforce existing laws and close the damned border, maybe we'd get somewhere.

Hey Jesse !!!

My Wife and Myself ( in our 50s ) enjoyed your "Conspiracy Theory" TV-Series. In fact, she bought the Banned-Episodes!

HOWEVER / REGARDLESS

Here's a Link-o-Info that could keep you busy for Hours-on-End.

Regarding #2, notwithstanding the myriad reasons people seek to enter the US, the current crisis has blossomed because of an apparent change in our public resolve to do anything about the ones who succeed to come here illegally.

Why wouldn't they come?

I know that you have 2 land based borders and that my nation is a island nonetheless I'll detail Australia's recent history between 2007-13 under labor(socialist government) and the greens 50,000 illegals arrived on our shores this government treated it as a humanitarian issue,our current Government treats it as a national security issue the first thing it did was appoint a special forces ex-commander to be in charge of a joint military/customs/immigration task force and deployed the relevant assets in the last 9 months there have been ZERO illegals arriving by boat,so its a matter of national will which in your countries case does not seem to be there as it loves the cheap labour too much.

Talk to them. MAKE them aware of current politics. I have a worry though. My kids, 24, 20 and 19 seem to be parroting what I say. I don't want that. I want them to think for themselves. How do you impart an interest in politics without influencing the kids? It ain't what I went through 30 years ago.

I am a millennial and I don't think most of us are vigilant enough when it comes to politics and world events. I personally spend at least an hour (usually 2-3 hours) reading from various sources on the internet, depending on the issue. The only friends I have IRL that are more interested than a Facebook type discussion are veterans. Most millennials couldn't tell you anything about ISIS, Ukraine, Israel, or have even heard who Snowden is.

In regards to #2, I don't think there is much correlation of Americas drug use and the problems with illegal immigrants. Many of the immigrants are children and people looking for a better life. Not many of them are bringing large quantities of narcotics with them. The drug cartels on the other hand are running drugs, usually in major bulk. This means a relatively small percentage of illegals are part of the greater drug smuggling operations.

You are never going to stop the demand for drugs. The best option is to legalize their biggest money maker and cut deep into their funding. Increasing security only increases their profit. Ultimately the immigration problem is the fault of the leadership of the other countries where the situation is bad enough that people are willing to take the risk to make it to the U.S. Our best option is to become more vigilant along our border. That means more boots on the ground along the borders. We have a system for legal immigration and should try to encourage people to take that route instead. It should be worth more for them to do it the legal way.

Topic # 1:
My daughter is about to turn 15. I have taught her to listen to both sides but know that most of them are lying, corrupted, trash who work for corporations and Israel and its interests.

Topic # 2:
20 mile buffer zone. motion detection video cameras and other sensors. Anyone caught within that zone will automatically be taken to a hard labor prison(Many that America needs to build on the borders) and spend one year(first offense), all while the Mexican government picks up the tab of each prisoner. Also, fine the Mexican government 10,000 dollars for every illegal caught.I bet it stops then.

Also, in Mexicos best interest, they need to work with federal agents on providing addresses of warlords and drug runners so that we may use drones on them until the message gets across. Don't mess with the U.S.!

topic #1:

Teach 'em to think for themselves. The rest takes care of itself. Every one of them in my life are all aware of the world around them. ...and for the most part, see it for what it is, not as they wish it was. Which is more than some us who aren't manage...

Political blindness is hardly unique to the young.

topic #2:

Who's fault? Really? Are you actually asking that?

How about all of us? Even you. Any time we allow the govt. to do nothing, or something we disagree with, the blame comes back directly at us. Deny as you will.

It's our bloody fault. Not the govt. Not the illegals flocking here. Us.

With regards to number 1:

We have satellite radio in the car with various news stations programmed. Not just the American MSM but BBC and others. Whether they like it or not, they listen to what's going on whenever we go someplace.

On top of that, we watch a lot of history shows on TV. The knowledge of history is what gives current events a context. Even as teenagers they are able to see reoccurring themes.

Yeah, still hard to compete with video games and friends but they need some off time too

Topic #1:
Discuss: Are you a millennial?


Yes I am.


How do you stay vigilant in politics?


Scouring the internet for information, or listening to MSM for the talking points they want me to hear and looking out for the information to the contrary.


Topic #2:
The border crisis has taken over the political arena. But who's fault is it really?


Whoever means to make to most money off it, while keeping the attention off of themselves.


After all, the US is the number one arms dealer AND the number one drug abuser in the world. What should we do as a country?


Change the people in government, you change the laws surrounding drugs, and the way arms deals are conducted.

By writing my representatives and demanding to know how they vote on what issues and why.


The border crisis has taken over the political arena. But who's fault is it really?

That damn statue of Liberty is at fault. "Give me your tired, your poor/ Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free/The wretched refuse of your teeming shore/Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me/I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" How can you have something like this and not expect people to think they wouldn't be welcome here. Also the people that give them jobs should be charged and thrown into prison. If people were to know they couldn't find work here then they wouldn't be so inclined to come here.


After all, the US is the number one arms dealer AND the number one drug abuser in the world. What should we do as a country?

Pass legislation that requires that all serial numbers on all weapons sold overseas must be available to both the government and to the public. That way if the weapons winds up in the hands of people that would kill Americans those that made them can held accountable.
As far as drugs go legalized all drugs. The government shouldn't be able to tell a person what the can or cannot put in their bodies. People that support drug laws support a nanny state.

Hi Jesse! I'm a millenial, and here's my thoughts:

I try to be current with politics and world events, but unfortunately they (especially politics) give me a headache. Trying to figure out who's who and what they are doing is a complicated process for me, but it's still very important. Most people my age tend not to give a ship about what's going on in the world, but in light of the Ukraine and mid-east crisis, people need to start waking up and seeing that we're gonna get one hell of a wasted world once the olds die. I wouldn't want to live on this planet anyways.
