I have seen no evidence of any crimes outside of those commited by CPS.Not even the Sherrifs in the area thought FDLS was a suicidal cult.The FDLS people greated tanks and armed goons with prayer and song. The State has no excuse for treating the FDLS people so harshly. They did not do a proper investigation. Some behind the scenes became impatient.


If we allow our government to get away with unlawfully detaining people without trial, dehydrating unweaned 13 month old babies ,and abusing many little children , we are the suicidal cult. A government capable of such cruelty is also capable of sending goons out to your house with big trash cans full of poisoned coolaid for you to drink.

They had to pre-empt that luny house before they started pouring the cool-aide or something worse. I'm glad they did and support the local authorities who made a quick and good decision.

It's like Bernake, he had to act when Bear Stearns ran out of liquid cash and he did, that was smart management. The local authorities did the same here and it's good.

Read this op-ed and apply the logic to the properly acting authorities in this brainwashing/abuse case here.


From Businessweek: Courage Under Fire

Question when does the government get to decide which businesses stay open and which ones have to go under? Its a slippery slope when you start bailing out companies because I promise you there are thousands of companies hurting in this credit crunch and mine is one of them. I cant get a bank to give me a business line of credit for nothing and I have good credit. This crisis was caused by the banks when they decided they weren't going to lend money anymore and on a financial system that is built on banks lending money that is not a good thing. Bear Stearns didn't want to have to do that. They had billions in assets they couldn't liquefy and banks refused to lend them money so they wouldn't have to sell. So in the end the FED ponied up and made it happen. Bear Stearns was saved at the expense of a lot of shareholders and a flawed fiat currency system which causes these booms and busts lives to see another day. But wheres my bailout? Wheres the bailout of for the thousands of other businesses hurting? In a truly free society Bear Stearns would of been allowed to go under and thats that.

As far as the ranch you keep saying loonies and brainwashing but let me ask you a question how do you know? Were you there? Do you know them? Have you seen them? Im willing to be its no to all 3 you are basing your information on a media who is basing their information on CPS reports. So far the CPS has been caught in several lies more and more women are being found to be of age. Dont take this the wrong way but dont be a sheeple. Dont look at the news and listen and accept what they say because the government or media says it.

I understand what you are saying but do you think this kind of story where a woman has to run from her husband or boyfriend is limited to the sect. I feel bad for her for I too was in that same scenerio as a kid where my mom had to flee because of physical abuse. We lived in a shelter and I remember it to a tee even though it was so long ago. But here is the deal she didnt want that lifestyle she didnt think it was for her so she left. She made a choice and left. The people who are there are making a choice to live that lifestyle so who are you and I to tell them that they cant live that lifestyle. She was 18 and forced to marry a 50 year old. Ok as weird as that sounds other countries like India do that all the time. Its common practice are they weird? If so then why?

If there are 12 year old girls getting raped in there like this lady claims then like I said some balls need to be chopped off I am in agreement with you but let our court system sort that out and if its true Im sure it will be proven and people charged. But until that as far as Im concerned these people are only guilty of living an alternative lifestyle that is not main stream.
