You're seriously delusional if you think that the armed forces are fighting 'for our freedoms'.

They're fighting for empire and for spreading 'democracy and freedom' to those countries deemed in need of Pentagon intervention due to their oil or mineral resources. Notice how the US military never seems to invade some obscure country with an obscure (non-US installed) dictator in the poorest regions of Africa that's lacking in known oil or other wealth.

As far as 'when are you going to uprise', I'm waiting on that one also. It will take a critical mass of people understanding the situation and willing to go up against the most deadly militarily-backed obscenely corrupt government the world has ever known.

What do you suggest? You first, or you're just all talk too.


This is why you are so little in mind.

The US military personnel are fighting for the freedoms of those lazy useless people back home. The agenda written out by the politicians might be of something sinister but the personnel mainly join to serve their country for the good of the people.

You being a self centered unpatriotic being can not see that. You don't understand what nearly all military people have in mind protecting THEIR country. Unlike people like you who sit their and offer nothing but useless drivel.

The people of the US will not uprise, they lack the courage and the will. They are scared into submission. Just because a few of you conspiracy nuts come onto this and other sites does not mean you are aiding the good fight.

Please please think before flapping those lips.

The Servicemen and women deserve far better thought of them from the type of people like yourself. The righteous, tree hugging libertarian selfishness that requires nothing in effort for the country you should love instead of HATE so much. No different to the terrorists who actually might have a reason to dislike the US.

Start supporting the people who protect this country and maybe they might be able to guide it into a better place soon. I know that the Military with fight for the people of this country abroad AND most importantly at home if it comes to it.....but why should they when people like you condemn their ordered actions.

You hit the nail on the head.

We have become a nation of cowards.


We have lost our ability to stand up for what is right, no matter the consequence.

Shame really, it wasn't always this way.

Bull, no one ever stood up for what is right, you have been lied to on a level you cannot understand it appears.

LoL at people in Ukraine standing up and getting some change... please tell me about the changes they are in control of, they are no better off...

The kind of change needed on this planet does not exist in any book or method ever before tried, better get ready for something new or get out of the way.

NO ONE not a god damn one of you does anything about it. You preach about treason, charges and the lark but nothing is ever done - it baffles me.


It baffles me how someone can lump all members of a single society into one category and say they all suck.




In Ukraine they are protesting/rioting, in many countries they protest en masse till something happens.


Comparing a country like the Ukraine that has had decades of strife to a country like the US is totally inaccurate.




However, americans with their gun (for this F****** very purpose) do NOTHING.


So armed revolution is the only thing that is going to save America from itself? Lets suppose that the American government somehow gets toppled by ordinary citizens with guns, what is going to replace it? Is the devil you don't know better than the one you do?




What is the point in the SERVICEMEN and WOMEN fighting abroad for freedom and sacrificing their lives for the people at home when the people at home just suck!! And are celebrity fed, consumer orientated worthless job shy nobodies who WILL NOT even defend their rights in their own soil!!!?? Answer that.


You totally contradict yourself by saying this:



You all moan and give your two cents of highly boring over indulgent monotony but the underlying factor with AMERICANS is you are all the same. To scared and too cowardly to actually make a change!!


Then you say this:



Thanks to all serving members of the US military, even though the people you fight for are not worth it!!


Where do you think people that sign up for the military come from? They don't just pass over from another dimension. They come from American homes, schools, businesses, churches. You're saying one is good and the other bad even though they are the same.


I'm American, I've lived in the UK and stayed quite a while in some other countries, and I must say, he is pretty much on target.

One thing I've felt for a long time that would make America a better place is compulsory basic military training. With the option to decide if you want to stay in AFTER going through basic. It makes people grow up and get a sense of reality and what really matters in life. It also gives people useful skills for later in life, and for the people who don't want to continue in the military, it can often give them that kick up the ass they need in order to succeed in college!

Down the road a generation, I genuinely believe we would have a generation of parents who are not the pathetic pushovers that are destroying any sense of order or discipline in our children and schools.

How are US "freedoms" enhanced by murdering, torturing, kidnapping, raping and stealing the assets of foreign nationals? Short answer is: They aren't. Just the opposite. When these warped troops come home, a sizable percentage of them will enter police or government service and bring their newfound skills (like urban pacification, drone murders, etc) with them.

The only thing the military is doing now is propping-up the military-industrial complex, carrying contraband (narcotics, weapons, nuke materials, etc) and carrying out state-sponsored-terrorism throughout the world.

You should not wave the flag if you don't have a clue what the empire stands for.

well what the heck are you doing about besides ranting online like everyone else? You have fallen into the duality/division trap quite nicely that the government has caught most Americans in. If you want to do something about it then be positive and formulate a plan. Connect with people and protest.. oh wait.. that already happens all year long accept the media blackout wont show you so you think all Americans are lazy and useless... and since you included yourself in your post you are part of the problem you are complaining about. Negativity will only push us further from our goal of changing this country for the better. You happen to hear someone say something ignorant? then politely correct them instead of telling them how dumb, brainwashed lazy they are.

before the worlwide fear campaign being at the airport and flying was actually kindof fun.
i´m in europe and i fly at least one time the year since about 25 years always the same tour.
back then i could take food with me in my handluggage. flasks with homemade jam,pickled cuecumber and whatnot. the officers would laugh and look at all my fine stuff and show it around. once i had a small knife with me- i forgot that it was in the bag. they just took it away and told me i could pick it up at my destiny- all very friendly and i was not patted all over because of that.i think even airport officers still used this old fashioned thing called common sense. just by looking at me they knew i wouldnt hide a bomb inside my jar of herings! unbelievable!

man i even remember smoking my cigarette above the clouds.normally i wouldnt smoke cigarettes but that one was sacred.
sounds like a fairy tale now ...
well its all boring and sterile now.airports are shopping malls where you get a free plastic-finger-petting and take off your belt and boots. the flights i do dont have fullbody scanners anymore luckily.it is really sad that its even worse elsewhere.
airports could be awesome places

So the people assuring the public including pregnant women they were in no danger, didn't know the extent of the danger themselves?

It's just getting worse all the time. At what point is this going to be treated as the treason against the people like it is?

And when are the people who profited off this obscenity going to be charged with a couple million counts of pornography, inflicting intentional harm, assault and battery?

Where's an actual DA willing to go up against the Dick Cheney's of the world?

Don't act shocked - you brought all this on yourselves (ourselves) and now the piper will be PAID. With lives and genocide on a scale never seen.

Excuse me but you have no right to condemn the people of America. Have you even considered what 9/11 did to the psyche of this nations people? Do you understand the effect it has on a nation when you're led to believe that we could be attacked at any time by terrorists? Not everyone is a conspiracy theory buff so most Americans DO live in fear of terrorism because they are truly ignorant of whats really happening in the world. It's not their faults, it's the people who we placed our faith in as a nation to lead us that have lead us astray. Let me ask you this, If a child acts unaccordingly do you blame that child for not knowing better or do you blame the ones leading that child (i.e parents)? Most Americans live in fear now, we are aware how much people like you hate us, the reason we don't fight back yet is because many of us are still living in ignorant bliss and still want to believe that our Government will protect us. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, people have the free will to choose what they want to believe and there is no amount of negativity you could spout off to can change that.

Have a conscience man, humanity needs support not hate.

You have misunderstood the difference between a right and a privilege.

It is a privilege to take a plane someplace.

Not a right.

You could also drive a car, take a bus, a boat, or a train, or even walk. You could ride a horse or ride in a horse-drawn carriage like our Founding Fathers. You'll note that they didn't FLY into Philadelphia with the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

You don't have to take a plane.

It's a convenience.

And the companies that own the planes are private companies - the use of their dangerous equipment (i.e. their planes) can be regulated by the government for safety.

Stop bitching about the TSA taking away people's rights.

They're not.

If you don't like the TSA and their screening, don't take a plane.

Incorrect. The government decided that they should regulate the air industry. And then they did it. Regulating the air industry was not something that was enumerated as a governmental duty in the Constitution. Yes, it is ludicrous to even say that....but since you mentioned the founding fathers and Philadelphia.....

Travel is a right. Mode of travel is a choice. But travel is a right. You also have a right to work (at least in the State of Texas and any other non-union state). Not a right to a job, but a right to work. If air travel is a requirement of the work you do (jobs I have had were this way), then infringing on my mode of travel becomes and infringement on my right to work.

I do not want to be groped. Nor xrayed. If i want to step out of the terminal to smoke a cigarette, it shouldn't take me an hour to get back in.

The pansies of this world piss me off. I have to wear a safety helmet because they have accepted it as law. Why do I have to conform to everyone else's comfort? Right down to the point where I have to be sexually belittled?

Regulating the air industry was not something that was enumerated as a governmental duty in the Constitution.


I won't go searching through the Constitution for the specifics, but the Preamble to the Constitution (which is the intent of the people who wrote the Constitution) says:

Provide for the common defense

Promote the general welfare

Both of which indicate that part of the intent of the Constitution was to provide Safety to the citizens of the United States. Regulating an industry that uses dangerous equipment (i.r. planes that can be hijacked and flown into buildings) would be part of providing Safety. And thus part of the intent of the people who wrote the Constitution.

You are correct. Freedom of Movement is a right. Your employer should be pushing for pre-screening under the TSA restrictions. You should also have a separate area in the airport to be screened for work travel. Your employer should also be held responsible if you turn out to be a terrorist.

People who are flying just for vacations and such should be handled different.

America is a nation MOSTLY of PUNKS for even flying once the TSA showed up.

I flew once since TSA back in 2005. NEVER AGAIN!

if ALL THE PUNKS who fly would refuse to fly for 1 week, leave the planes all grounded. This whole mess would have ended.


Unless you have a job that REQUIRES you to fly, what do you propose I do, take a slow boat to China when equipment is down? There are semiconductor fabs we service all over the world that loses millions of dollars a day (and the people that work in them, feeding their families depend on us to get them up again!)
Not to mention the military that needs to fly!
Those that say WE can take a bus, a ship, train, etc. are immature individuals that perhaps has no place of importance to go therefore you live with your parents and let others worry about their welfare!
I guess those hard working people like myself trying to make a living is a PUNK.... at least, according to you!

yes, we have a RIGHT to travel FREELY.. not free of charge, but freely.. without being impeded.


AND the slippery slope of freedom took a BIG HIT when i was a teen.. The SEAT-BELT LAW..

Now, i CHOOSE to wear one. BUT, it is a choice. Many teachers argued with me in high school, I said it was TOTALLY against FREEDOM to have some REDCOAT be able to HARASS me for not wearing one.

Making the choice to participate in TYRANNY for selfish reasons..

I dont care if you lose your job, you are the problem if you engage in flying by ENABLING the Tyranny.

Find a NEW job. one that does not require being an ENABLER to tyranny.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Funny, my comment was deleted for manners for affirming that those that fly are ______.

but your referring to welfare and living with parents is fine..lol WTF ever.

And I personally SUPPORT my family. And will be able to WITHOUT enabling tyranny. I walked away from a career in DHS, the whole thing is sickening! and I was a MARINE before that.

As a martial artist I have found it hilarious that I can't have a knife but have to get barefoot and my belt is loose in my hands. The TSA checkpoint actually does the job of optimizing me as a weapon under the circumstances.
