Lets see. Jessie Jackson wants Homeland Security to patrol Chi towns dangerous progressive produced streets. And the president is okaying the drone planes for use against American citizens. And the government is looking into using RFID chips on welfare, food stamp, etc. recipients as per Food and Drug Administration in an article I glanced. reason is to cut massive waste as the progressive programs are adding about ten thousand people a day to the welfare roles currently. Now who needs black helicopters. That so 1990's....Happy Days are here again....bwhahahaa! Nothing to see here.

Well, I'm glad liberals will now stand up with republicans against using assult weapons on american citizens. The drones are not allowed in the schools though, because they are drone free areas.

Its always the same when people are confronted with the truth of what is really happening on these boards as an example, they stop posting for many hours after non stop posting or refute it with the cymbals. The progressive movement is responsible for our decline in a big way, but all of us are also. I saw an article that people my age and gender are the enemies of the state. We are the last ones truly educated in large numbers in right and wrong and took a beating during the quota era as the pc/diversity/feminism/etc. ramped up big time. To be sure, there are many others, but we know. The last connection to what was with the good and bad and really no control over it as youngsters and what we have become. It seems the price of what we are doing is tyranny. With a healthy chunk of the population in denial with an elitist controlled media soft pedaling it.

[QUOTE who="Mr. Hand"]<quoted text>
I think it called having a life! thankfully you are correct only a small handful of uneducated conspiracy theorists who demand everything from government but don't want to pay for it are a diminishing group![/QUOTE] More like spoiled generations of parasites who are overseeing the demise of something special. That life you are talking about is a high percentage of people not paying attention at all to what their government is doing and has done. There are very few issues with people paying their share and living in a nation that is fair. It is the constant increases and additions of more spending and programs while the ones we have are shortchanged that causes a major concern. It is easy to say"conspiracy theorists" because many are not real. This one is. and many statements have been made by the people who are powerful on it over many decades. It is not that easy to remove tyranny once entrenched. At this point I don't expect it to be removed unless people on both sides get together. In a secular version, I just don't want to be the ones rounded up. And I do expect many people to be rounded up. You figure out who it is going to be. Believe me, you are either living the life based on a "conspiracy forced culture" or are ignorant.

Utter and complete (as well as unsourced) garbage. Obamacare is designed to PROVIDE coverage, not take it away. If certain irresponsible corporations deny hours/healthcare to workers, they will have the opportunity to purchase it at a heavily-reduced price through state exchanges.

You really don't have any idea how it works, do you el Contrario?:)

You're fond of asking completely irrelevant questions, aren't you?

It's obvious that it's mostly you gunners who want to suppress disagreement and do away with the 1st Amendment, so that's not only irrelevant to my post but EXTREMELY hypocritical, boy genius.:)

More hatred and filth from the nasty scum on the far right. Unable to defeat Mr. Obama at the polls, they take cheap, often racist shots at himself, his wife, and his family.

You have to sink pretty low to be a teabagging rightie...
