You all are being lost into a world of the insane leading the sane.
President Trump is saying this without saying it.
Sorry everyone, but America is downing in its own stupidity.
Don't believe me, look at homelessness and the border.
You send those back that cross the border without health paper and other papers.
Yet those in leadership have their heads somewhere where they don't see the fall of America because of this

Oh they see it.
It's all part of the plan, Skippy.
New World Order bro!
We need to all collectively be broke and sick, so it's fair and all.

It's gilded cage syndrome.

In my experience the average American is happy enough driving they BMW to the social services office where they get assist on housing, food stamp, iGadget, Sony Playstation etc.

And when they get tired of that they turn on MSM or TwitFace for guidance and direction.

We're in a lot of trouble.

About half of them


We used to laugh at the fools on Jerry Springer in the 1990's. Now a large percent of the population is part of the idiocracy.

This will fully illustrate exactly what I am referencing.

I think

The USA culture has become one of unchecked fantasy and escapism.

Mix a propaganda machine into that and whatdoyaget?

Identity crisis!

Homelessness and the border... you mean the illegals with no place to go.

Why should they get american "papers"? They are illegal and should be deported.


Yet those in leadership have their heads somewhere where they don't see the fall of America because of this


Stopping illegal immigration? How about south america get its crap together and join the rest of the world...

I think it's become a culture of blame, much like an addict.

We're unwilling to admit that our government is a reflection of our societies health. Many cling to the disalusion that by simply supporting a party we are "doing our part". But with that comes the entertainment of our opposing parties dimise. Celebrating when anyone from 'their side" does something stupid or suffers a blow.

We're unwilling to admit we're sick, because we'll constantly blame someone else. It's the "insert here".

We're sick because a certain spectrum of the political pool refuses to acknowledge the importance of international borders, and how uncontrolled immigration is detrimental to a civilized country.

When I am told that I'm "downing in my own stupidity", I doubt the source.

Tell me, what country are you from?

You're giving merit to my point.

They don't hear out that side, and vise versa.

Immigration is an important topic to a societies health just as dealing with threats to security of citizens. Yet both sides are more concerned with "foreign threats" rather than see the 900,000~ deaths a year in our country are due to preventable diseases.

Both sides won't adress the fact we invest more in our foreign affairs than we do our domestic concerns.

And me saying this often times gets me called a socialist even though I say investing on such platforms require we decrease spending.

We can't proceed to increase debt and assume everything will be as good as the 80's or 90's.

We have systemic problems, most of those arise from a lack to take accountability for our flaws. We buy into exceptionalism while we are in the lowest metrics for everything other than military spending.

You pretty much nailed it there, one side blames the other, and neither side are willing to compromise.

We have become a society of petulant children that do not have the gumption to look in the mirror, take responsibility and implement reasonable change...

To be fair, while the power structure is run by them, it's because we allow it to be that way. It's also allowed because so many people don't participate or responsibly inform themselves on current event.

A fun arguement to the above is they all have very important things going on such as full time jobs and families to "keep up with it all". But they think we should force that responsibility to democracy on third world countries who have problems other than telemarketers starting to use local area codes (I'm guilty of thinking this is a priority for lawmakers).

Words well worth repeating. It's the other side of the coin of doing the same retarded thing over and over again and failing each time, delusionally expecting a different outcome each time. The ones perpetuating it worst are quick to point blame fingers immediately.

Edit: I realize I should clarify, this isn't a reference to the coin metaphor, at least not specifically. The coin stands as an embodiment of something wholly flawed, and damned to failure regardless when looked at from all sides.

I agree, and I like the way you phrase that..

Responsibly inform themselves, let's face it in the information age that statement is somewhat of a misnomer.

Absolutely, the worst offenders are always the ones pointing out other peoples flaws and basking in the glory of being right.

We have a local news station here, which happens to be the most popular one... Anyways, a reporter for them caught wind of a story that a big time lawyer (ambulance chaser) was sexually abusive to his underage step daughter. They didn't just fire that reporter they smeared them. The lawyer is a local JW Wentworth and is in almost every advert segment.

When you see pharma commercials and Lockheed Martin commercials, I think it's safe to say we don't pick our prescriptions or the weapons manufacturers. Those are decided for us. Devils advocate would say it's for investors, but my opinion is it's leverage for bad stories against their business.

Confirmation bias outlets don't get a pass because they're not MSM. MSM is just the useful idiot to push agenda.

I think you should delve into it all and be able to read between the lines.
