Speaking as somebody who is not a teenager, does not live in a basement, and has been around the proverbial block, so to speak...

I love America. I am proud to have been born here and to have lived the preponderance of my forty-four years of life, so far, here. I am proud that my children have been born here and will live their lives in the freedoms that the Constitution affords them. I would gladly give the whole of myself, and what I am, in defense of this country and its people. My body aches, every single day, with the pains gained from a life of working hard for myself and for this culture. So I feel I have a right to speak to this issue. And I will do so with a very brief statement.

I do not lament what America is. I lament what it is becoming. When our government begins to demonstrate that corporations, banks, and companies matter more than the people that those institutions serve... When my vote and my family matter less than anothers does simply because I am not rich enough to lobby Congress into serving my best interests... enough money to BUY justice... then, to quote the bard... Something is wrong in the state of Denmark.

Judging by your ATS information... Your member name and your location, I assume that you are a US Marine. I want to thank you for serving this nation. There are those who still hold such service in very high esteem and honor your sacrifices and commitment. But I would implore you to take a deep breathe and to remember a very simple fact...

These people that you've chosen to rant against are the very people you serve. And you give your lives work to protecting their freedom to complain. So celebrate that they have these rights, rather than being offended by it. It is a beautiful thing.

first of all most third world countries do not have militaries as they cannot afford them, second if they do have a military they dont spend there time and countries resources trying to install their morals and beliefs in the name of freedom on other country men and women, 3rd of all yes america was great before the bankers and corporations took over but, it is getting to look more and more like brazil and a third world status, so again was there a point to this thread

In that same vane, let him rant because he has the right to rant.

I won't stop from burning the flag, but I'll tell him what I think of it, and why they shouldn't do it.

Get my meaning?

Minor correction to your misinfo on myanmar (burma) they didnt want WESTERN help due to the meddling of the west and the u.s in particular. They DID allow help in from ASEAN and countries here went in and helped them. I know because I went with the group from vietnam and provided medical care for the people in myanmar. So please make sure you know the full story before spouting the same old tired western propaganda.. Yes myanmar has problems but its for the people of myanmar to sort out.. Not for the u.s who is just eying the natural resources and could care less about the people of myanmar..

Firstly, I'd like to let you service men, and info fighters in the states you are appreciated very much. Amen! The United States has the most beautiful common grounds - The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, but when the Bill of Rights gets diminished because PTB claim "National security" and strip our rights then it makes you question, are you an American or a human. An American supports everything our so called elected officials and congress men decide, yet most of us have 0 say in any matter completely, The illusion of voting and democracy has became NIL.
Our government has let free market corporations meddle in worldly affairs and turn the public image of the United States to that of people that deserve death.
Our national history is very wobbly, We came to conquer. Civil war amongst ourselves. Establishment of equality. Then the monster Federal reserve system is created and In God We Trust was put on money and coins to reaffirm public belief in God. Yet the very reason it was added because our government found out about the extraterrestrial affairs on our planet and sold us out. These great leaders who can smoothe talk you in to robbing and raping you blindly, and smile when they walk away. Kennedy was assasinated for trying to speak the truth about the federal reserve system and the massive control groups that we like to call "illumanati".
I agree that America has a great standard of living and you are truely free if you get over your ignorance. I would say I am not free to stop paying the IRS taxes that go towards bombing innocents, bulldozing houses, 30,000,000$ cash to IsRaEl every year. Letting corportations go to Latin America and poor countries and exploting them for resources, leaving pollution and disregarding workers compensation surely has damaged our countries reputation yet again. The corporate greed and the mass mental manipulation is the problem. Who could really hate America? I'd like to think that most people that try to talk about things just want to be able to help change things for the better. I agree there are many that just call others sheep and look for some reasons to complain; but bitches are always gonna bitch.
The real alarms are things like sending your precious lives to Vietnam and bombing Japan and resparking the cold war fear with Russia, to cover up the fact that the "elite" have been selling humans out for technology so they can rule for the time being. I hope they get eaten first by the reptiles. Every person who has been abducted can attribute it to mass #ERY in our government. Every person who has suffered mass hysteria and propaganda to hate other countries, religions or races, probably was caused by our government and the media influence. You cannot avoid it. Look at our governments affairs in the middle eastern area and parts of Afrika... There have been soldiers coming home testifying to the brutality and corrupt conflict our government has placed us in. I was going to serve my country, I decided the best way was to defend it from within; United we stand Divided we fall. We have enough domestic issues, and you best believe we are going to be fed more disinformation, The Hype about Russian influence in Afghanistan, the North Korea and South Korea conflict, The Chinese and America trade war which is steadly escalating. Isreals mistreatment and unlawful creation of state engaging our soldiers in situations that they should handle on their own. Targetting Iran as terrorists who don't even have a FIFTH of enough pure uranium to even make a nuclear weapon. Mossad did 9/11, Ritualistic sick #s. They believe in worship of money and infant ritual sacrafice. I know that may sound "loony" and people like David Icke talking about reptiles might baffle some, he's already been called an idiot. But there is a reason Hitler was empowered to do what he did. The elder protocol of scion(Zion) called for it. The holohaux is the best defence against any political critisizm of Israel. I don't give a # that 1.6 million jews died, are they more important than the 60 million who died in WW2? 58 Million civilians. Even if 3.2 Jews were killed for their religion(and that's being nice) Or even if you think 6 million died, are 10% more special than the rest? they were set up by the political AshkeNazis that are running current day Israel.
3,000 Palestines, Jordanians, Arabs, Egyptians whatever mixture consists of Islam have died PER person who died on Sept 11th. How about the families who get shut up looking for truth about 9/11? How do they live in a country knowing their government did that. and anybody can deny it all they want, theromite was not caused by the planes therefore it was planeted to melt the steel and ensure the collapse. I hope America doesn't die begging on it's knees. I wouldnt even have a child, why would I want them to enter such a #ed up world. It can appear stable as homeostasis, that doesn't change the fact that the Universe is pure Chaos and most people would rather die fighting for liberty and free speech than put up with oppression and tyrants (Like we seriously have now) Washington DC is a soft dictator. They dictate your life more than you can admit. They see these words. They could know who you call, talk about. Know your birth records and everytime you've seen the doctor since. They know what you watch on T.v. and get at the store; they give you coupons when they calculate what they probably can get you to use. There trying to pass Coica and net regulation. First sign of loss of freedom was the patriot act. To bad the real patriots are gonna be killed in the next months, called terrorist and used by the media giants to inflict more fear on the populas. # TSA, molesting my children? # the flouride and chlorine in the water. # creating fake viruses like Bird and Swine flu and distributing vaccines pretending that it will cure, yet giving the very disease. Check what the polio shots did to people. 1/3 Americans will have diabetes in the next 10 years. Sweet children of the corn, Genetically modified foods genetically modify our DNA. Heavy metals are spayed in the air to prevent intelligence interception. Corporations ruin the world, and are protected by immunity. Just like everyone who works for "The Man", I say we all Rob the # out of BP completely, and use that money to clean the damn water. People are to scared. If I had it my way they wouldn't exist. Because as long as they do; you'll be chasing green paper while they constantly inflate the economy and tax you so keep you in a cycle. Some are better off now, but what happens when you can't use a dollar for a single thing? Back to the barter system ? Dope. atleast real human beings will survive and these robots and globalists will die the # off.

A badge is a reason to be allowed to legally harass others. I don't know about hell.. what if humans need to stop being afraid

Burma refused outside aid after the Tsunami.....

America refused aid after we turned the oceans we don't own black......

Used our Guns to keep other countries on Earth from cleaning the ocean they also own.

Not even Burma ever went that far. Think about it.

Why "rant" about conditions in the USA?

Because they are very rapidly deteriorating.

I outline the deterioration with backup HERE and the reason why we can not recover is HERE

If you do not read my posts, at least read this well researched Article by Nicole Johnson. It gives an eye opening explanation of why American culture has been ripped apart and who is to blame.

I am old enough to remember the America before the CED [the Committee for Economic Development] ripped apart our culture to provide abundant labor for factories and mortgages on farmland for the bankers.



...In a number of reports written over a few decades, CED [the Committee for Economic Development] recommended that farming "resources" "that is, farmers" be reduced. In its 1945 report "Agriculture in an Expanding Economy," CED complained that "the excess of human resources engaged in agriculture is probably the most important single factor in the "farm problem'" and describes how agricultural production can be better organized to fit to business needs....

Their plan was so effective and so faithfully executed by its operatives in the US government that by 1974 the CED couldn't help but congratulate itself in another agricultural report called "A New US Farm Policy for Changing World Food Needs" for the efficiency of the tactics they employed to drive farmers from their land.[5]

The human cost of CED's plans were exacting and enormous.

CED's plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers' lives ended in suicide [6], not unlike farmers in India today who have been tricked into debt and desperation and can see no other way out www.opednews.com...


Do not think this only applies to the USA. The disease in the USA goes worldwide and the wealth siphoned from American citizens funds it. I cover how our wealth is siphoned off HERE

The Bankers used FDR as a puppet. He was president during the formations of the World Bank and the IMF (International Monetary Fund) at the Bretton Woods Conference.

The IMF/World Bank, using American money, ties the Bankers to the raping of third world countries.

"Today I resigned from the staff of the International Monetary Fund after over 12 years, and after 1000 days of official fund work in the field, hawking your medicine and your bag of tricks to governments and to peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean and Africa. To me, resignation is a priceless liberation, for with it I have taken the first big step to that place where I may hope to wash my hands of what in my mind's eye is the blood of millions of poor and starving peoples. Mr. Camdessus, the blood is so much, you know, it runs in rivers. It dries up too; it cakes all over me; sometimes I feel that there is not enough soap in the whole world to cleanse me from the things that I did do in your name and in the name of your predecessors, and under your official seal. "

With those words, Davison Budhoo, a senior economist with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for more than 12 years, publicly resigned in May, 1988.... www.thirdworldtraveler.com...


Go tohe World Bank/IMF SAPs to see exactly what Mr. Budhoo is talking about. And while you read it think about what Stewart Dougherty, a specialist in inferential analysis, said. It is now "statistically impossible for the United States to pay its obligations". That is just another way of say the USA is bankrupt, yet Congress keeps spending like a drunken sailor.

The bankers have suck the carcass of the United States dry and have bankrupted the country.

I have said it before, and I will say it again - the problems here in the U.S. have less to do with some evil-master-plan-of-world-domination, and more to do with the incompetence of the government bureaucracy combined with the complacency of the American people.

To claim that the government is not serving the will of the people is a bit of an oversight on the part of the ATS community. It is doing, almost exactly, what the American people have been asking of it these past 30+ years. At some point in American history, the trend began developing where people would rather be secure than free. To a degree - this is understandable. However, this also bred complacency and eventually led to an entitlement mentality.

With the demand for more security came the necessity for more government control of businesses. As lobbyists increased in Washington, the general public decided even more regulations needed to be placed on businesses to limit their influence on the legislative process.

The cruel irony of it all is that these regulations on businesses ultimately set the precedent for the government control of businesses - which gives businesses far more reason to lobby and allows larger businesses to influence the laws in their favor (and against smaller businesses).

Most of the problems we face today can be tracked back to this fundamental problem with our political and economic system.

People see the problems being caused by irresponsible business practices (encouraged, if not mandated by government programs and regulations) and demand the government do more to resolve it.

That's the biggest problem America has right now. The corporations are seen as the bad guy, the government is out of control, and the people have lost a sense of what the government is (and is not) supposed to do.

Not that any other country is any better. America is still the best country on the planet, and I'd certainly like to keep it that way. I'm not one of the types that run around spouting about "TPTB" or how we are all going to be in FEMA camps (whatever those are - they seem to be a convenient buzzword, much as I can gather).

And I can say that I was much like them at one point in time - back before I joined the military. My mind was filled with black helicopters and alien bases. Then I got in and realized that such a chaotic mess might be able to hide a few crashed UFOs if they were to be found - but that conspiracy stories are vastly over-rated and given far too liberal of a creative license.

I remember the day my bubble got burst on that one... they gave us a prepaid card for the NEX there at RTC - I didn't realize it, or forgot that they had told us about it. We had just gotten our military IDs earlier that week, and were told to "get our card" to go to the NEX. I figured that the military, surely, had our IDs tied to a computerized system and would just dock what we picked up from our pay. We can reverse-engineer UFOs, why not a simple networked database that a highschool student could code?

Chief wasn't too happy, and I may as well have worn a dunce cap.

FYI - the military can't even run a basic pay system. I don't know how they get this screwed up - no one jumps three ranks in a month, switches from E-6 to O-6, or any of the stuff they seem to pull off on a regular basis. My favorite is: "Well.. we paid you twice as much as we should have last month, so we just decided we shouldn't pay you this month."

I don't understand - it makes no sense.

You've made some very logical conclusions about our problem here in the states. But sometimes rationality means nothing. Sometimes even science is irrelevent. By the time it took our people to show the world the corruption of the planning behind the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran currently and the occupation of our troops in 75% of the world is blashpemy! and demonstates the totalitarian entity it has become. If we are not allowed to expose Genetically modified foods and chemtrails(Could be false, but I believe there is evidence) Flouride in our water. BPA in our canned goods, and a scare now even on our money. The fake diseases and viruses they genetically engineer. With the same logic, evolution is also scientifically against it? Big pharma benefits We get sick and die easier. Cancer is the answer. Phillip Morris is an Empire, and we suck poison like it's our job. You wanna feel good man? Oxycontin! You having anxiety? Benzo's let me suppress your awareness a little eh - Make you a little relaxed, lol people blackOut. The only thing pharmacies should have are natural remedies and elixers, the scientific processes have been used against us and it is clearly evident. GMO = Evil, Nature = Good.

You show people how the CIA and information agencies are invading every single invidiuals privicies. I don't think they watch us... But once your name pop's up; they already know EVERYTHING about you except what you keep in your mind and soul. Our government is the enemy. and if you realize that you are taken out very quickly. What can we do? Nothing pretty much. Unless some of us are gonna start putting our heads on the line first. And plus I still call my countries bluff. If we all could organize tonight, Not many would show. And when you die later on; I'll be resting peacefully why you tried to preserve your life and LOST it anyways.

If I exposed the media for the lies they propagate, exposed the police and FBI/CIA/TSA and other branches as the criminals they are. The corrupt Judges in the supreme court and circuits world wide, The bribes they take; the immunity they recieve. If they have immunity are we equal? You gonna take the chip? It's not about prophecy or God anymore. It's about the conditions of planet Earth. None if it is meant to happen, none of it has to happen, and NONE of it WILL happen if we stand up and stop being pussies. Not many of us even can call ourselves true Americans. A real American isn't a patriot, but he will die for his people, A real patriot is more than a democrat or republican. He is above good and evil, guilt, sin, and fear of death. His ideals are immortal. Freedom, liberty, justice, equality, truth, beauty and purity are heavenly, We are all born godly. We choose to give it away. We choose to watch others trample and mock it, with their own delusion and self hate. They are trapped within their limited perception and can't let go of things. It's time for some monk warriors to band together and be wise as serpents yet innocent as sheep Anybody agree? Peaceful protests. Youtube videos, T-Shirts, Organic fruit stands and information! We can give girs free massages... Maybe some substance if we get to that point.. Our problem is we forgot our individual soverignty and we gave it away. Individuals cannot take it back, We have to come together. Humans are naturally inclined to not be able to organize, With the internet we could get a Crowd of 200 Million in DC. We could mass FLOOD Maryland, or Washington, Or Virginia! and all come together. Are we scared?

There is only one truth in this universe and we hate to realize it. We are all equal in death.
