Truth is truth and you can't change that. Pew Pew.

Exactly. Glad you understand that the truth is, the Pew Pew stats are manipulated garbage.


Only in your mind. They are the experts, you are not.

Experts at manipulating statistics when desired - I agree wholeheartedly, yes they are.

Nicholas Sandman just stood and smiled and showed respect and he was trashed. Turned out good for him cause he won his lawsuits to the tune of hundreds of millions.

Eh??? I heard he filed two of them... but are you saying he already 'won' them? If so then it must have been settled pre trial, because no way the trial has already been held.

The issue is parents, teachers and administrators turning a blind eye to those who have problems or may need help in school instead of just stating 'it is expression'.

That is one aspect of the overall problem.

Another is the free-wheeling drugging of our kids in school just because they are kids ( ADD, ADHD, etc are not real things, they are made up things by teachers who don't want to deal with young kids because they can't sit still for more than a few minutes at a time - because they are f***ing kids!

Another is the extreme freudian 'fear of guns' engaged in by these same people, when it should be the other way around.

Teach kids to respect each other, and at the same time, how to defend themselves.

Allow teachers to discipline the kids, but it should always be recorded, and teachers should have very clear lines of when discipline can be applied and what disciplinary actions can b e taken.

Implement programs to allow certain professions - like Teachers, Airline Pilots & Crew, etc - to be fully trained in firearm safety and tactics, in preparation for an 'active shooter' situation - and not only let anyone engaged in said professions to participate in said programs, actually require a certain significant percentage of them to be willing to Carry in their hiring requirements.

I don't know what they put in the water in America, but your opinionated media is bogus.

It is called sodium fluoride - the same chemical the natzis used in their public water supply to pacify their citizenry.

while in the media both were portrayed in the best light possible.


Fahrenheit 911 and W both made Bush look like a dope and were big media events. I remember the news media generally being good to him but lots of television shows took their jabs.

I stopped watching TV during the Obama years so I'm not really sure if he was lambasted as frequently as Bush was. The news and sitcoms are constantly on at my parents' house and even though it's always peripheral, I notice lots of anti-Trump sentiment.

ADD/ADHD are real, but they are also way overdiagnosed and improperly treated once diagnosed.

They are supposed to be a diagnoses of last resort once all else has been ruled out. The general symptoms are common across many other things that can go wrong with kids, but it's very common to find ADD/ADHD brought up as diagnosis of first resort, and then once you have that diagnosis, medication is supposed to a last ditch treatment used in conjunction with therapies. It's not the cure, only a means of allowing therapy to take hold and retrain a brain.

Usually, you find it diagnosed first and then only treated with drugs, and that's wrong.

Depends on what you mean by 'real'.

The extreme conditions are merely symptoms of extremely poor dietary habits, way too much sugar and empty carbs (processed flour, etc), and very probably reactions to vaccines.

But the fact is, small kids have always had short attention spans, and teachers now use these drugs to pacify normal kids with normal behaviors.


They are supposed to be a diagnoses of last resort once all else has been ruled out.

Exactly. But the psychiatrists made sure otherwise.

Thats my point. These kids don't need 'therapy' - they need proper nutrition. PERIOD.

It is always wrong to treat these kinds of conditions with psychotic drugs.

Look at the side effects of ALL psychotropic drugs used to treat people with depression and suicidal tendencies:

The side effects are DEPRESSION, AND SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.

Pharmaceutical drugs should not only be used as a last resort, they should always - ALWAYS - be intended only as an extremely short term stop gap until the underlying condition can be resolved.

Some claim that violence is inherent in people. They argue that the propensity for violence or killing has always been inborn in humans. Supporters of evolution maintain that we come from wild animals and have simply inherited their violent characteristics. Such theories would leave us doomed to an endless cycle of violence from which there is no hope of escape.

However, there is much evidence to the contrary. The theories mentioned above do not explain why in different cultures there are wide variations in frequency and types of violence. They do not indicate why in some cultures responding with violence seems to be the norm, whereas other societies report very little violence, with murder almost nil. Psychoanalyst Erich Fromm exposed cracks in the theory that we inherit aggression from primates by pointing out that although some of them are violent as a result of physical needs or for self-protection, humans are the only ones who have been known to kill for the sheer thrill of killing.

In their book The Will to Kill​—Making Sense of Senseless Murder, Professors James Alan Fox and Jack Levin state: “Some individuals are more prone to violence than others, yet free will still exists. The will to kill, though governed by numerous internal and external forces, still includes choice and human decision making, and thus accountability and culpability.”

Some point to evidence that various forms of modern communication may encourage aggressive conduct. Regular exposure to violence depicted on television, in movies, in video games, and on the Internet is said to desensitize the conscience and inspire violent crimes. Around the year 2003, Dr. Daniel Borenstein, president of the American Psychiatric Association, stated: “At this time there are more than 1,000 studies based on more than 30 years of research demonstrating a causal connection between media violence and aggressive behavior in some children.” Before a U.S. Senate committee, Dr. Borenstein testified: “We are convinced that repeated exposure to entertainment violence in all its forms has significant public health implications.”

Specific cases are often cited to show that this is true. In the case of a cold-blooded murder of a couple watching the sunrise on a beach, prosecutors presented evidence that the thrill killing was inspired by repeated viewing of a violent movie. In a school shooting where 15 people were killed, the two student perpetrators were said to have spent hours each day playing violent video games. Additionally, they repeatedly watched movies glorifying violence and killing.

There is no one factor that explains all the varied acts of senseless violence. However, it is interesting to note that Dr. Richard F. Corlin, past president of the American Medical Association, delivered a speech to a group of graduating doctors in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. In it he spoke about computer games that encourage violence. Some of these games award points for flesh wounds, more for a body shot, and even more for a head shot. Blood spurts out, and brain tissue spatters all over.

Dr. Corlin commented that children are not allowed to drive, not allowed to drink alcoholic beverages, and not allowed to smoke when they are too young. Then he said: “But we do let them be trained to be shooters at an age when they have not yet developed their impulse control and have none of the maturity and discipline to safely use the weapons they are playing with. . . . We need to teach our children from the beginning that violence [has] consequences​—serious consequences—​all the time.”

Sadly, instead of being taught that crime has consequences, children are often the innocent victims of violent crimes. Statistics show that gunfire kills ten children a day in the United States. Dr. Corlin says: “The United States leads the world​—in the rate at which its children die from firearms.” His conclusion? “Gun violence is a threat to the public health of our country. This is a fact.”

Crime is often the result of improper training of people’s hearts and minds. So “stop being molded by this system of things, but be transformed by making your mind over, so that you may prove to yourselves the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)

For good reason, King Solomon of ancient Israel counsels: “More than all else that is to be guarded, safeguard your heart, for out of it are the sources of life.” (Proverbs 4:23) How may we safeguard our figurative heart? Proverbs chapter 4 gives us the answer to that question.

This place has turned into a sewer.


This is a gross understatement. Really sad when you compare it to when I first started on here. When they talked about actual conspiracies... not rehashing drudge and breitbart articles to circle jerk each other..

You haven’t figured out yet that only hard right conservative sources count?!?!!

Lol

The vast majority don’t employ journalists or research their own stories .. they just copy paste MSM stories after propagandizing them..

It is the craziest thing ever... any two-bit conspiracy site spouting about how Obama is the anti-Christ is legitimate, but every actual long standing news organization that actually fires journalists for publishing fake stories, is in a vast leftist conspiracy against them....


Vast leftist conspiracies that are not even profitable to orchestrate...lol..

Like all these leftists are spending billions of dollars to fake clime change because.....

It has almost killed the site.. well that and a lack of updating the technology..


They have purposefully or accidentally allowed relatively every mod to be a hard right shill..

Then people who are not Mods go around and report any posts that disagree with their politics.. which gets submitted to those hard right mods to review..


They ran off pretty much everyone on the left, center or that was strictly a non-political conspiracy person..



I would bet the post trump population on here has dwindled to a fraction of its previous rate..

It's just a reflection of life. Lots of leftists are withdrawing in shame. The people who have left here humiliated themselves so much they don't want to show up and face it.
Kudos to you for staying and facing your humiliation, though.
