IF Americans do not start standing hand in hand regardless of station in life color creed or Religion. they are not worthy of freedom nor to be called Americans.
Your on your last stand, hanging by a thread, and all I see are dark eyes and apathy. you reap what you sow and you are sowing today your destruction and peeing away your dream.
I'm of the opinion that economic hard times will play a large role in the radicalization of people under the age of 40. It's looking more and more likely that we're heading for a depression, circa 2010 or (latest) 2012. Many of today's youth are hooked on "instant gratification." I'm wondering what such an austere decade will do to them.
. . what is interesting though is watching people awake somewhat to the "new" (not so new but new to some) reality of life here in the U.S. - as things progress and the process of radicalization begins to flower (if it flowers as I think it will) - it will make for some strange bedfellows - and folk who never expected to find themselves on the same side of the fence will begin to blur the boundaries that once kept them apart ...

I thought that it was worth pointing out that that Don has put forward ideas on amending the US constitution here . This is worth noting because what is on offer is political solutions to problems rather then the likes of loony talk about revolting against the US government and so on .
While I am not a proponent of Louis Farrakhan I surely support many of his ideas for the men of his race. When we learn to look beyond color or religion then we will learn to defeat those that wish to enslave us. Unity is the only way that we can overcome the beast that we have created.
We must become more independent and learn to provide for ourselves. We must educate and work with those that are different, to achieve a common form of governance that all can prosper in.
Why would white folks down in NO be partying and not lending a hand to their Neighbors? What is wrong with the people in NO? I do not see humanity in NO.
Now to this day nothing has changed down in NO.
When they came for the Negroes I did not do anything
when they came for the Chinese I did not do anything
When they came for the Native I did not do anything
when they came for me no one was left to help me

The people today in New Orleans ARE not Americans I don't know where they came from but they sure as hell are not Americans. IF Americans do not start standing hand in hand regardless of station in life color creed or Religion. they are not worthy of freedom nor to be called Americans. You’re on your last stand, hanging by a thread ,and all I see are dark eyes and apathy. you reap what you sow and you are sowing today your destruction and pissing away your dream . .
The conservator-ship of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac brings me back to my central point, which is that economic factors will play a very large role in disaffecting an entire generation of potential radicals. The failure of our nation's two largest mortgage lenders underscores the point I've been making since I first joined ATS. The hard times are coming ,and a lot of people are going to get very mean. Will our government be willing to distinguish between terrorists and the dispossessed?
