How many events has America been through and recovered from? Too many to count. We will recover from this recession and be just fine. We are the most powerful country in the world and it's not even close. How much worse was the great depression? There were huge lines of people lining up for food. Is that happening today? NO! Today the great depression is a thing of the past and we are a stronger nation because of it.
Also, I can't believe how against cops people on here are. If someone breaks into your house at night and the cops save you, are they still the bad guys? I'm sure some of you will say yes but when the time comes I seriously doubt you won't accept their help.
I am currently trying to get into the police academy and it really makes me sad that this is how some people will think of me when I become a cop. All I want to do is protect and serve the people and yet some spew nothing but hate. Don't worry though I won't think twice about helping any of you in your time of need. A few bad apples have ruined the reputation of the brave men and women who protect you on a daily basis.
I am done now so flame away.

Originally posted by HeliousSince that time, The United States has become a police state, we have policeman taking down 9 year old girls with tazors, assaulting people in wheelchairs, macing students in peaceable protests, becoming livid and forceful when a video camera is in sight and arresting and incarcerating without probably cause with impunity, leaving the citizen to pay thousands of dollars to pay for a defense for a non crime and when they are found innocent, there is no punishment to the officer in question.
The courts in this country, the laws, the fines, the persecution have become normal. Water your grass on this day, wear you seat belt, Don't have a couple chickens in the back yard in a coup, Don't collect rain water, register your guns with fifteen different departments before you buy it, if you will even be able to own one in a couple years. The writing is on the wall and what it says is that freedom is no longer the basis of our nation or society that we live in.
