To that end we all can play a powerful and peaceful part in simply how we chose to spend our money and where and on what. Many of us, the vast majority of us, enrich the corporate culture by gladly giving it our hard earned money for services and products that we could get from smaller local companies. We don’t do that, we keep making the corporate monsters bigger and bigger often with the idea we are saving a buck in the process but it’s a short term savings as the Corporations ultimately look to profit more and more by exporting American Jobs, stagnating wages, and negotiating further government subsidies and laws that enable them by detracting from us.

I'm new on here and I joined because of some of the things I see happening in the world today. The Norway Spiral vs Acient petroglyphs, the Vatican's recent proclamation of our extraterrestrial brothers, technology advancements I've seen and heard about, all tied in with my own observations of two advanced craft that shouldn't exist given today's technology. I hoped to find intelligent discourse about the stuff on my mind, not more of the same.
Sadly, these kind of posts occur on every forum I visit. The worst abusers I see are actually on military.com. As a US Navy veteran of the Cold War, I find myself actually angry at these people I don't even know. Every person in the military has sworn allegiance to and agrees to accept the orders of their Commander in Chief . Some of the posts border on treason. I am ashamed of those and refuse to call the posters my brothers at arms.
There has not been a President in office since I was old enough to understand that I agreed completely with but I swore to fight to the death for the man. That attitude hasn't changed in my civilian life.
If you must, speak to the man's policies, but keep talk of assassinations, treason, and sedition in your own twisted mind. Only those of your ilk want to hear it anyway.
Very true. Unfortunately, the Wal-Mart generation can't see this and, like those who fall prey to the lies of the Rs and Ds, will only aid in the perpetuation of the problem.

While I do not think that violence is the real way to handle our problems, I believe that sometimes you are in a situation where your only choice may be to be violent, to take care of things temporarily. I don't really think we have come to that point at this time. But I think we need to make our voices heard, and we need to do something about insuring our rights and freedoms aren't just stripped away. Shoving a gun in someone's face isn't the first thing you should think of, unless it's absolutely necessary.

I don't think you have to worry ...
This "Revolution" these nuts talk about, is just an excuse for them to gather and play their "I am a patriot, i want to live in the 18th century. i love the founding fathers" games
Nobody is taking them seriously .. they are a joke ..
