All that glitters is not gold, especially when what glitters is the bars of the cage they keep you in. If you ever want to be free, the time to awaken is freaking NOW.
Did you see a reply to box above my post? I was not referring to anything you wrote, only the contents of the video and my thoughts. I don't see how my status as a mod has anything to do with what I, or you had to say.
Bad form Seabag.
I was merely pointing out that some people feel the need to blame Obama for anything they can, rational or not.

“The right to own a home”?? Isn’t that the kind of crap that gave us the Fanny-Freddie housing bubble fiasco?

you would defend gun rights,
but not the right to life liberty and an equitable society?
why Y NO CONSISTENT in the rights YOU choose to champion?
are life and liberty LESS important to you GUNS?
ps im a new zealander and this obvious picking and choosing seams odd to an outsider
cap·i·tal·ism [kap-i-tl-iz-uhm] Show IPA noun an economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, especially as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth
self-reliance, self-sufficiency, self-awareness, self-improvement, adequate self interest to develop into the person who is then capable of helping their neighbor.
If you're so against 'socialism', what's your cure-all alternative?
Funny how people
want to cite "capitalism" considering capitalism has not existed in this country for over 100 years.
Meaning no person living knows what the hell it is.
Government is the largest distributor of wealth
That is not capitalism.
Forgot the only people who have problems with "billionaires" are historically? Communists,Marxists,Socialists evil China has billionaires.

Damn it Obama, why do you do all these things to me?
This is the mentality of those who seem to worship the idea of hating Obama. It's kind of funny, cause the opposite are those fanatical " He's my President" types.
You know what Obama is really good at? Why globalists love to have him at the helm like he is? Cause he plays ball, and he's soooooo good at changing or influencing the national conversation.
Just look, last week Gun Control, new wee Immigration. That's a hell of a leap policy wise. Obama isn't a socialist. If he was, then the healthcare package would have included a public option, which mind you was popular among voters at the time.
What Obama can be described as is a globalist scum bag. Just like all of his friends and colleagues in most seats of high power in the US. Romney was no different, he was just on overdrive.
Besides, how can you have inherent, 'God Given' rights if the government has the ability to add to them?
Seems a bit strange.
We have names. It shouldn't be too hard to use them considering how few of us there are on this site. You may as well use them considering that tossed bricks have more subtlety.
Oh do tell. We don't have private business owners in the USA? When the hell did that happen? 100 years ago?! ...holy crap, now I gotta fix all my durn capitalism sux signs. Screw it, I'm too lazy.
Well just because you don't, doesn't mean the rest of us suffer the same limitations.
Yeah maybe, just ask all the CEO's, the defense contractors, the bankers... the oughtta know 1st hand!
Yes and no, you're partially right but you have no idea why. This is what Capitalism becomes when it is treated like spoiled brat of a child and allowed to have everything, take everything, without regard for others, without consequence... and now we have a monster that we continue to feed because now we're terrified of what will happen if we don't.
You might want to take a refresher course on history.
Fiat currency meaning no business owner has wealth as the wealth is determined by the federal reserve.
No maybe's about it all those who are on SS,medicare,medicaid, those who got their "free homes" and their free cell phones. and that student loan debt that is now over 1 trillion dollar do know.
Nope others need to take a look at current events at that 16 trillion dollar deficit and within the next 3 years that sum will be well over 21 trillion.
