Make fun of Sci-Fi all you want, we are living in the sick modern age of ... "Buck Rogers." From Sci-Fi many things have come.

Now that said, I don't think your deep back-woods filth filled brain is capable to label or diagnose anyone. Besides much of today's 'fact filled' absurdities of psychiatry and diagnostics is a pure joke and used more as a weapon against some people than what it is supposed to actually do, or claim to do. Hell, freako, going by the DSM 4 I can easily diagnose you with having multiple disorders. Besides being stuck on stupid, ignorant, ignoring reality, and flat out supporting of everything evil and commie.

You sure aren't a proud American. In fact you know little about being American or to why our country today is such a sh*t hole. Eat the red pill, fool.

The truth behind the local Nazi-feminist movement in Terrible Haute who thinks they should rule over all... and doing it thanks to our commie rulers and assorted filth.

Then lets go on to more globalist ideas and info about YOU Obama or Bush fans, or those who think our society and town is doing fine.

It's obvious many of YOUR kind and the local youth have little to do but come online and Topix to spew your filth and waste time talking trash. You must be one of those well paid activist to distract and try to confuse the sheep.

Now how about you going out and getting a real job? Leave mommies pc alone and get out into real life and maybe volunteer to do something positive instead of supporting local trash that doesn't concern you anyway. If indeed you really are from GA which I doubt.

Feel safe since I don't have a magic button that when pushed would obliterate you idiots, commies, libtards, and other assorted scum. I would not hesitate one second to see your tiny little heads explode and set us all free from your nonsense, OCD, and pathological control issues that many are filled with in the Terrible Haute area. God how I wish I had such a button. Mother Earth would love to lighten her load too. How is that for some Sci-Fi?

This is all about me, isn't it?

Yes, I know it is. OK, I made a big mistake getting into the ring with The Champ for a battle of wits while only half-armed.

But, I am working on improving my thinking abilities. I have enrolled in an international correspondence course, on line, from Tijuana Jr College. It is called Remedial Logic 001. It is designed for the intellectually challenged, i.e. less than a triple digit IQ. So, I am obviously qualified.

Soon, I will be on the comeback trail.

After earning the right, I will get into the ring with The Champ again.

Until then, I will be studying hard.

More than proud I am thankful to be an American. If someone has something to say about my comment, I will say in advance, it is my opinion and it stays. I wouldn't trade my citizenship for any other place in the world. If you do not love America, go to another place. You have that freedom.

Or we could exercise that same freedom to remain here and attempt to change what we don't like. I find it amusing that you're proud of something you were simply born in to instead of actually accomplishing, which I doubt is much.

True, and now thanks to the communist and globalist with full cooperation of our loving left winger totalitarians that run this sick city and our militarized anti-American, anti-Constitutional police forces and others, the war is now on our door-steps. Has been. Gee, thanks democrat party/communist party of Terre Haute.

I hear people constantly bitching about this in this town but never seem to see examples.of this. Granted I don't conduct business here so I'm don't have an inside look but know some that do and they don't see a problem. So for once, list SPECIFIC examples of the communist, fascist activities that are so prevalent in this city.

Granted I do conduct business here and it's so blatant crazy and corrupt that I don't even need have an inside look but know some that do and they don't see a problem. So again, there is enough out there to make a very SPECIFIC list of examples of the communist, fascist activities that are so prevalent in this city.

Hell, I even kept that post insult free yet was still able to draw out the retards. Well if it's so prevalent and there's such a long list, name three. It should be easy to do if your claim is true but I suspect your dumbass doesn't even know what communism or fascism is, you likely just like the way they sound and throw them around meaninglessly like most idiots do.

America consists of 3 continents, does it not? North, Central, and South. Democrats are definitely not communist, and are socialist in their platform usage of absolute terms such as "All," "Everyone," and/or "everybody,". The new health care program is a form of socialism because "all" citizens of the United States of America are required (or expected) to enroll.

Wow! I honestly can't believe that someone living in TH can say they are "free" and live in a Constitutional Republic with all the rights and freedoms afforded, or supposedly afforded to us.

Oh, and people even on Topix or trying to use the very censored media forums in town and Politix have listed all the many complaints and wrongs in this town and it's politics.

Socialism in only and merely... Communism... light, period. The main obvious keys to this are... "the community first, individuals, last."

The treating of all people the same unless they are part of the local cliques, cops, judges, scum sucking office holders, crooked attorneys for which all are here. Don't they punish all for the mis-deeds of a few like the present change in pain medicine and forced doctor visits? Yet our media or the lousy VA health care system bow to it so it will benefit the health care system and enlarge the health care doctors wallets. It alone, has put a heavy burden on crippled up people, vets, the elderly and etc. who now have to travel just to get a script filled and even with them knowing that conditions only worsen with most, especially us older folks with permanent damages.

Open some eyes, we actually do not have property rights, we have to show our ID's for about everything and the city and county councils are making this town look like China or Korea.

All the police 'saturation.' You all think that is Constitutional? Drones? No knock warrants? The city keeping various forms of businesses locating here and just bowing to what ISU wants here?

Have you tried to start a business here? Jump through all their hoops? Building something? Try to get a story or complaint made through our local commie media and local lying journalist who bury much and report less about reality?

Ever try to get out-side help here or hire attorneys to come to this town to correct wrongs or malpractices or corruption? Won't happen.

Never been pulled over and harrassed... for pure politics or by a jealous angry cop? Or been the target from local politics, feminist, or one of the many special interest groups?

Has the city came out and taken down signs or warned you over using your freedoms, or having signs the local communist don't like?

Never been to these lousy phony meetings and lied to, or made to run the many offices in town to find no truth or remedy, just run-around?

Ever been hassled and thrown around by jack-booted thugs when sick.. and they think you are drunk? " F-you buddy, we aren't social-workers, we're warriors."

This town is evil, period with evil ego tripping people drunk on greed, corruption and Hollywood. All the goody two shoe crap on TV during holidays is just pure crap, facade, and makes the kiddies and welfare types happy.

Oh and damn, the local Congress make stupid laws then take holiday breaks so the public can't complain over their draconian demands.

Hell, we are taxed to death the NFL and many others don't pay taxes. Our politicians have tax shelters, like doctors, lawyers scum. People ignore and accept much...then justifying ... communism and fascism. Read the news, and not local news or CNN.

Living in a totalitarian police state under many cliques and petty tryants with zero privacy rights and YOU think you are free in Terre Haute?

'Your children are NOT yours but the community and states?"

Many other comments like that locally and nationally and you people think that is NOT commie or tyranny? Unbelievable.

Veterans at our local clinic treated like shit, have no rights, forced to sign some very very anti-freedom demands for care? Total loss of privacy. Ran by an insurance company to appease the AMA, Obongo, and corrupt Phizers and other companies? WE GET INTO TROUBLE IF WE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE VA SYSTEM AND TOTAL LUNATICS THAT WORK THERE AND THE INDY HOSPITAL Local Vet groups too affraid to protest or stand-up to all the local crap and corruption. Damn people, get real.

Pure Draconian authoritarianism form the Democrat communist party in TH. With the Repuks or our new governor not being much better.

How about a good holiday rant I previously posted. I've listed many over the years. NOT one person has asked to meet to see some evidence of local corruption. NOT one person has ever offered any form of concern to anybody voicing concerns or grievances in this town. Just the spies and evil come out to play and gather information to be targeted by our political militant regimes.

Personally, I'm writing all this at a time when I AGAIN have to sit by and watch good friends die, suffer, and put up with all the fascist ordinances, laws, demands, the greed from all angles, the disconcern, and all the shysters in this town. Not to mention the lame local medical operations that are trained not to give a shit for people, or to just push stupid head dope on people and an aspirin for cancer or etc. Pretty sad place we actually live in, but you have to have lived to see some reality in this town. Or actually know people.

For once I'm not trying to stir shit with you so please just give a specific example because honestly, while I'm sure there is some corruption here, I fail to see how it's worse than any other place in America. I grew up in Illinois, thankfully nowhere near Chicago, but if you want to see corruption turned into an art form... It's hard to best Illinois.

Yeppers. They do vets really dirty most of the time. Terre Hautes corruption and local thugs have gotten so bad since I first moved here that you almost have to make a conscious imaginative effort to not see it. But it's all over this state for sure.

Indiana got an F here http://www.publicintegrity.org/2013/12/04/137... and when asked bout it they made up excuses like "If the judges were corrupt then we are sure they would tell us."

The state also got an F here too http://www.idsnews.com/news/story.aspx...

There are many more categories where this state failed miserably if you take the time to search. Those were just the first hits from google.

While I don't think Indiana is a very good honest state as a whole, I still think that the city of Terre Haute is at the bottom of the toilet when it comes to political, school board, court and police corruption. There are too many examples of it and anyone who isn't seeing the obvious must choose not to. There is no other explanation. Those screaming that Terre Haute is some kind of honest freedom utopia are out of their minds. Well back to search for houses to rent in other states. Take care of yourselves people your selected leaders could give a crap less about you all.

Who even cares about corruption!? We've been over this and it's unanimous that there is no corruption in Terre Haute and never will be, you idiot! And even if there was, as long as rights are getting abused, we're cool. Never trust what you can't cavity search.

When you put it that way it is pretty comparable to life in Terre Haute and how it is. I would be kidding myself if I tried to say otherwise and defend TH. What do you think the best way to oust all of the corruption would be. The federal people catch them once in a while like that city clerk that got caught multiple times for election fraud but the city tried to lie and defended her. They all stick together in their crimes. What else can we concerned citizens do. It's clear that 75% of the people are oblivious to that stuff until it directly effects them or their business or property.
