They are attracted to glittery things,cars,gadgets and widgets,however un-necessary they may be to ones survival,they want.
It's about capitalism,the poor who are dragging the country down are really being used as a tool by the rich,to destroy the country from within,so in effect it is the rich who are destroying it while hiding behind someone else and putting the blame on them.
You can study this stuff till you are blue in the face,about the time you begin to get a handle on it ,those in power will change the name or the party,the agenda does not change.

...Unless you want your rabbit meat well tenderized & care to spend a few hours to collect the carcass with tweezers & a magnifying glass...

Still, the most valid point I've seen in this thread has to be that virtually anyone who has an ax to grind can certainly dig up some kind of statistics to support whatever theory he wishes to...And not bother to dig a little deeper for the facts that *cause* those particulars statistics in the first place.

Originally posted by ImAlreadyPsycho The top serial killers in the world have yet to be mentioned too.
Adolph Hitler
Joseph Stalin

Actually, these two would be more accurately described as "mass murderers", not "serial killers"...But I'm not going to argue semantics over this one.

Like if cops were the only ones who had guns,it wouldn't even be coercion anymore.
Disarm the governments,then the cops,then I will cut my gun in half.

It has been argued that this is the main reason to continue letting the American Citizen "bear arms"...Some of the American Forefathers argued that, if the government gets out of control (which there seems to be *very* strong indications of that happening), then the Citizens had a means to defend themselves from the government itself.

Originally posted by Skadi_the_Evil_Elf The real problems with the US are: too much TV, Zionist occupation, too many US companies and products abroad, too many jobs going overseas, too little education, too little awareness of whats going on in thier own borders, people not taking care of themselves, national debt, and traitors running the gov.

Actually, the Zionists could very likely be the source of these problems:
Too much TV, too many US companies/products/jobs going overseas (simply because it's cheaper to operate on foriegn soil), too little education/awareness (An uneducated slave is a safer slave), national debt (mostly caused by the Federal Reserve, a "child" of privately-owned international banks).
And again, some problems have a "trickle-down cause & effect":
Too much TV (without any real "education" inserted, it's mostly just "mind-candy") promotes the "consumerist attitude" that causes a lot of problems in the US. It's also too expensive of a system to maintain; Look at how much advertising costs & how many *large* companies are willing to pay that cost (with money out of *our* pockets to do it...What? You think that the high retail-costs in the stores are *not* at least partially influenced by the companies' advertising budget, which is what *we're* paying for?)
Also, without much educational programming, TV promotes laziness, & loss of attention span...Which leads to the uncaring attitude towards awareness. This may be a large factor in Americans not taking care of themselves also.
In turn, the national debt has put *everyone* under the thumbs of the Zionists...Whether we know it or not. Even the *government* has to do what they say, or they'll not get any more of their "scrip-money" (it's not *real* money, because there's no real value to back it up) to play with. Most of the nation's traitors who work in the federal government actually are following "orders" from the Federal Reserve when they commit their treason in the first place...This is why we need a really *serious* shakedown of the US's government & econmic base.
All in all, it seems that Zionists are the root-cause of of quite a few problems in the US...Granted, getting out from under their thumb isn't going to solve *all* our problems, but it would release a lot of pressure so we can deal with other problems more efficiently.

Originally posted by jagdfliegerOnce people realize that they would face stiff prison sentences if they commited suicide using a firearm, then that practice would cease and people would turn to less violent methods of suicide.

Yes, I see the inherent humor in your post...But then you have to realize that suicide is the only crime that you can be prosecuted for *only if you fail*!

The number one problem is America is the increasing stupidity of the population. The population is getting dumber and dumber every gereration, and the seperation between upper and lower class is becoming more pronouced due to what i call 'reverse evolution' or sometimes 'devolution'
In America today, generally the shallower the gene pool, the greater the number of children. Crazy idiot rednecks have 6 kids, and intelligent rockets scientists have 1 or 2 tops.
Of course there are exceptions...but next time you want a laugh, visit walmart on a friday night and look at the single moms with 5 kids (and fewer teeth) ( i am sympathetic to their plight...but please stop having babies!).
Our society is getting dumber every year.

A goodly percentage of this problem is the result of Social Engineering...The government has a lot of control of educational programs all over the country. And who did I say is controlling the government?

Another problem is the corporations that are large enough to afford TV advertising...They financially support the programmers who promote more "mind candy" for the masses, which slowly degrades the intelligence level of programming over time. This also includes the news shows...

A lot of the "social engineering" doesn't have to be integrated at all social levels immediately...A lot of it is started a one or a few sources, but only shows up as "trickle-down" effects that really only become apparent after years & decades have passed. Slow & subtle is the key here.

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." (Richard Henry Lee, Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress, initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights.)

"The great object is that every man be armed . . . Everyone who is able may have a gun." (Patrick Henry, in the Virginia Convention on the ratification of the Constitution.)

"The advantage of being armed . . . the Americans possess over the people of all other nations . . . Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several Kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, author of the Bill of Rights, in his Federalist Paper No. 26.)

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." (Second Amendment to the Constitution.)

Sounds like something an European would write.


I am Canadian too and I don't agree with you.

The only thing in that list that has merit is the issue regarding teenage pregnancies,

that is america's greatest shame.

but we know why that is don't we?
