Man this op looks like a constructed troll bit that just makes every thing in question look stupid anyway.

Nah man, America's had plenty of practice being the opposite of Midas around the world, we're bound to trash ourselves domestically at some point. It's called "ego". It destroys everything it encounters when it's overinflated.

We're in dire need of a cold slap from reality to ground us, though. 300 million out of 7 billion are a bit big for their britches at present.


Well I will take some comfort in the fact that even the little ameba has an outer shell with protective hairs as well as other aids to its survival. No one is going to call it "ego" driven.

If you thought the temper tantrum has been bad since Nov '16, just wait til after these midterms. They've been misled to think they're going to take back the House and the Senate. When that doesn't materialize, they're going to lose it. Doubly so if Mueller wraps up soon and announces there's no evidence of collusion.

Death penalty, anyone?

“They forfeit that right”...

Unalienable!

But...

So what exactly is an "American way of life"? For all we know, you might be the one with an "Anti-American way of life", whatever that means.


For me it is

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ”

Anything that goes against this seems to be anti-American.


So the first 90 or so years of US history were anti-American, right? You know, because of stuff like forced slavery, "the 3/5ths Compromise", and the "Indian Removal Act".

And the next 100 years or so were also anti-American because of the "Black Codes" and Jim Crow laws, right? You know, because the 1954 Supreme Court case "Hernandez v. Texas", the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the "Voting Rights Act of 1965", and the 1967 Supreme Court case "Loving v. Virginia" had to force the equal legal treatment of minorities and struck down the anti-interracial marriage laws. I should also add 2015's Supreme Court case "Obergefell v. Hodges" since it made sure that all LGB citizens could equally marry.

In other words, since when has the US actually followed that quote from the Declaration of Independence? Under the Articles of Confederation and the first several decades of the US Constitution, even most "white" males couldn't vote. And many of the "founding fathers" were slaveowners, so clearly they didn't believe those grandiose words you quoted.

And wow so all that justifies black national/tribal promotions here, in the US, by the inestimable Elijah Muhammad. Gots to even get rid of those European names......and take on non-African but Arab names to purify and rectify the situation. Like Mexican natives preaching to americans in another Europeans subjugator language.....priceless.

Yes. That and the over-simplification of nuanced and highly complex issues.

There are no black and white answers to today's issues. Yet rabid "progressives" want to make believe and pretend their are. They look at only whats immediately in front of their faces, and ignore the rest.

A brain-dead "progressive" : Have a gang violence problem? No problem! Lets disarm all the law abiding citizens. No matter that those same citizens will now also be victimized by those criminal gang members who ignore the law anyhow.

Note how the second suspect in the Pittsburgh shooting was released from custody a mere days after his arrest (the one where that POS Antwon Rose was put down)

Try as you may to discredit or disrupt our founder's vision, we will uphold it without apology or deference.

The Constitution is the singular & only way forward. That isn't up for discussion.

Did the founders include black slaves and American Indians in their great vision? Did they plan for the U.S, to have a history of violent imperialism and mimic their enemy, England??

America isn't great unless is acknowledges its horrible practices and foundations.

So pointing out facts and actual policies is discrediting someone? They clearly didn't believe that the Declaration of Independence's grandiose words applied to all people.

They have rarely followed it, but those who fought against such injustices used those same guiding principles to demolish their opponents.

Funny how conspiracy theories are all one step ahead of the curve, and some how always end up being right, but when they are wrong, it's OK because they have another theory.

You honestly think Trump is out to destroy this NWO?

You honestly think people like Obama, who, deported more illegals than any president since WW2, attempted affordable health care actually acknowledge racism within' the US, and tried very hard to get OUT of Iraq was part of this 'elite' gang of NWO super elitists?

To be honest with you, what's happening in the states, is rather scary. If it keeps up, something drastic will happen, and it's literally because of Trumps hunger for power and dismantling any sort of left ideology and trying to annihilate the only plausible opposition. And his supporters gobble it!

Nobody is trying to destroy the "American Way of Life". They're trying to redefine what the Way is.

Goodbye choices, discussion, debate, agreement and corroboration.

Hello fascism, nationalism, control and dissent

Yes, bowing to the MIC's jackbooted thugs is so very American. It's not like the country was founded by people trying to throw off authority or anything.
