While I agree with "Grognak's" above quoted post, in theory, if there is a danger of a Contagious Outbreak that endangers the Public as a whole, the Gov't. has an obligation to prevent that from happening, for the "Public Good", if it can.

Somebody must have noticed it or you wouldn't know how the Burglars did it...Right?:)
Whether they reported it at the time, is debatable...but somebody had to notice it or Nobody would know how they did it. BTW, were they caught?
The man who got caught was caught because he sold stolen goods to someone who ended up trying to pawn them. The guy who got caught pawning the items ratted out the guy who was robbing houses but he never ratted out the others and thefts kept happening. This was big news around the area for a long time and many homeowners meetings took place on this subject. Brinks home security made out big on this because everybody was buying security systems but after some time peoples homes were still being robbed even the ones that had security systems so many people believed that security installers were involved. It was going on for so long that it was pretty well pieced together but no one ever got caught in the act. Eventually the burglaries stopped and that was it, only that one guy ever got caught, if anything else happened I'm pretty sure we would of known because it was a pretty well to do neighborhood which had many well connected lawyers a judge a couple Tampa Bay Buccaneers, doctors, even the owner of Klondike Bars had a house there the list go's on I think you get my point, it was a pretty well connected neighborhood, unfortunately though most rich people at least around there weren't to friendly and the only times most neighbors ever interacted was at homeowners meetings, I think if it was a closer community they would of been caught.

Somebody drove up that street and passed that House and saw the U-Haul and maybe, even saw the stuff being carried out. But, from what you posted, they probably either didn't think anything about it, or they didn't care, if they didn't like the People.

This "I don't want to get involved" attitude only helps criminals get by with their crimes....and the next time it could be the Ones who didn't want to get involved.

This book in two volumes was once High School required reading {but no longer}, as were many other books. This is one chapter, and a fairly easy read, but the author's observations are profound.
And his prediction, 150 years later, still has not come true.

Though I'm sure people like you have been claiming it is right around the corner from the moment he published.

We are freer now than we were under the robber barrens. Freer now than we were when Presidents were selected in smokefilled back rooms.

Is everything perfect? Of course not. However declaring failure in the face of clear and constant progress is a waste of time.

You are either a raving paranoid or something without a solid grasp of history.

You sound like the lunatics I'm dealing with on the evolution forums who claim that we are in the "End Times" and have been claiming that for 2,000 years.

This guy wrote about an America that was not yet 100 years old and was still deeply divided by the issue of slavery. He made predictions of its failure to the grandchildren of the people who had participated in the founding.

We're 150 years past that. His predictions of inevitable failure have seen a civil war, two world wars, the rise of America from an backwater aggricultural nation to a military superpower. His prediction has seen a president for life come and go without a dynasty, and a president abusing the power of office removed by the power of the press. They've seen a gay, a cripple and a black man all elected to the highest office - not to mention more than a few drug addicts.

If you're response is: "It could still come true", then don't bother. Yup. EVERY prediction is accurate if it you give it eternity in which to happen.

ONE DAY America will fall, as did Rome (after 1,000+ years). If Yellowstone erupts, we're done. If a massive meteor hits, we're done. If the Conservatives win and we poison the air and water beyond repair, we're done.

What is NOT going to destroy America is common sense laws about healthcare.

Your claims to the opposite is unfounded in reality.

Ain't you watching? We are in the End Times. Within 5 years you will see famine and pestilence on a global scale, though the Americas won't be hit nearly as hard as some other regions. These are the characteristics of the Fourth Horseman.

Okay, LOL seems you haven't been watching. The "Bio-Fuel Famine" has actually been going on for almost 8 years now, so that's a pretty easy call.

Nuggin, I have been reasonable with you, I've treated you with a lot more respect than you've treated me, and at every turn you've shown how irrational, judgmental, condemning, and prejudiced you are. The picture you have painted of yourself is one I would never put into words about anyone, even those who deserve no better. When the government you trust so blindly turns on you, and it will, you may then realize the chains of slavery you have chosen to shackle yourself with. I hope that when that day comes you will not have burned every bridge, but from the looks of things now I'd say you'll be looking at a vista of embers and smoke.

Anyone who claims these are the "end times" has NO CONCEPT of the historical significance of the plagues of Europe or the Americas.

As for famine, we live in a time of ABUNDANT food. If we lost HALF the world food supply, we would still live in a time where food was FAR more abundant than any other time on the planet. There has _always_ been famine somewhere. There has _always_ been drought somewhere. There has _always_ been war somewhere. That's the nature of living everywhere on this planet.

Go back and re-read your posts. You've been condescending, pompous and worst of all wrong.

You think because you have taken your first baby steps beyond what is taught in schools that you have some grand grasp of the scope of history. You don't.

You're just being contrary because you have the desire to feel superior to people you consider intellectually inferior so, no matter what is taught, you take the opposite view.

I see this all the time on other forums. The "hollow Earth-ers", the "HIV doesn't cause AIDS-ers", the "Jews are responsible for 9/11-ers", and the "Civil War had nothing to do with slavery-ers".

Taking the opposite view from the majority doesn't make you smarter. You aren't privy to some grand conspiracy while the rest of the world remains blind.

If you print out these pages and put them in a drawer, ten years from now you'll read this garbage you wrote and be embarrassed at how foolish you sound.

Oh, wait, that's right. No one will be alive 10 years from now because Jesus will be back to kill all the non-believers.

That's what you looneys have been saying for 2000 years.

I simply can't imagine what in anyone's life could make someone as hate filled and as humorless as you. The bitterness literally drips from every thought and word; and I can only imagine your every action as well, though I've not witnessed that for myself.

If your kids are in there 40's then they are irrelevant to this matter because there is a huge difference between the types and numbers of vaccines given today vs the ones given in the 70's.

If anyone really wants to read some of the truths about the vaccines that they are giving our children this is one of the better articles I have found, unlike the pharmaceutical propaganda websites this one includes most of its sources.

Today's vaccines are OVERWHELMINGLY safer, more effective and with a lower overall dosage.

No vaccines ever for this house!!! OVERWHELMINGLY safer??? Really? Do you understand what each ingredient in every vaccine is? Do you know how the ingredients in said vaccines mix with the other ingredients in the other vaccines they give at one time? This is the ingredient list from the CDC for DTaP. aluminum phosphate, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, 2-Phenoxyethanol,
Stainer-Scholte medium, modified Mueller’s growth medium, modified
Mueller-Miller casamino acid medium (without beef heart infusion)

And here is the MMR list, again from CDC.

vitamins, amino acids, fetal bovine serum, sucrose, sodium phosphate,
glutamate, recombinant human albumin, neomycin, sorbitol, hydrolyzed
gelatin, chick embryo cell culture, WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts
Do you understand everyone one of those? Do you know their meaning? No thanks, not for us! But before you go off saying they are "safer", you should go read up of the reactions, and deaths being reported to Vaers. It's more than just fever and soreness of the injection site. There is death, seizures, blindness, mental functions hindered, miscarriages, etc etc etc.

Fortunately I don't eat fast food and I try to eat as little processed foods as possible.

Are you saying they are putting vaccines and or medications in fast food?
