We, the human race, are going to end up like these people.

Someone else will do all of the thinking for us.
sure, it's a good idea to hold the handrail. but it should be a choice.

Now and Then!

That tidbit cracked me up!


Laugh out loud funny! Where did you find such an appropriate video???

I love to laugh, IMO the best ATS has to offer is to bring humor into this crazy arsed world.

Thanks to you both for lightening it up.

And so dang true!

Can we not make a simple decision for ourselves anymore to the point that we don't know that we have the power to maybe, just maybe make a choice without big brother pointing the way?

I had seen the video before. used as an example as how helpless we are letting ourselves become. As I was reading through this thread, it just popped back into my memory. Like you said, it seemed VERY appropriate!

I've never been a handrail holder myself. Only a few times, to prove or disprove George Carlin's observation that the handrail moves slightly faster than the stairs themselves. It DOES, by the way.

And if you want to get technical, like a previous poster mentioned........

The most dangerous part of escalators is getting on them, doing that little foot dance to catch the movement, and also getting off!

And yet, if we really are going to win our fight against nwo, and fascism we have to 1) understand the difference between law and legislation and not obey. 2) make noise over everything and write, email, phone and use our feet to say NO NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! 3) if they actually are stupid enough, after we've said NO loud and clear, then not only will they never see public office again (this is in our ballpark) but we have to IGNORE THE LEGISLATION and NOT FOLLOW. Now obviously this isn't going to work if only one or two people who are smart and brave do this. WE ALL HAVE TO!

Hi Mystiq,

This is deserving of its own thread. I haven't searched yet, but if this idea does not exist on ATS, then it should. I would love to join an organized group of citizens who were educated of their rights, enforced their rights, and stood up for everyone around them. If such a network existed, it would be huge. When one person's rights were being violated, they send a quick text message and 100 or 1000 people show up to support them. When it comes time to vote, we discuss the candidates and endorse one like the teamsters do. When legislation is unconstitutional, we write letters and press releases in mass and make sure politicians that support it are committing political suicide. We could collectively right editorials and post them in paper's nationwide all at the same time. This could be a great network. We won't call it a political party, just a common sense network.

You can bet someone is blaming Obama for this. People are just going crazy from some unknown influence, cops and citizens alike.
