The black population takes advantage of Democrat groveling whenever possible. They stick with Democrats because they know Democrats owe them for past atrocities, not caring about the associated exploitation. Blacks feel their 'work' was done generations ago. That they're owed payment for labor their ancestors performed. This mindset will never be erased, they will never forget and we will never make 'sufficient' reparation. Black dependency has become a non-discretionary federal commitment that can't be cut and can't be re-negotiated.
I have no issues with the black community we were discussing the song and how it relates to this day in time.. We have members of all races on welfare and we need to find a way to ween them off and go back to work.. There is many things the government can do to jumpstart/help create jobs but continue to fail at doing so..

Get a clue.
I posted under my real name when I first came to Topix. You're probably the only person on this thread that doesn't know that unless you're just playing stupid for effect.
The trolls used that name to research me and when they found out I was exactly who and what I claimed to be and there wasn't anything they could use to shut me up, they started posting contact information about my family members.
After a series of death threats (kind of like the dozens that were deleted from yesterdays troll party) I started posting as Jaxxon.
It was my choice and the original account is still active if I should ever decide I want to use it.
ralff is posting with the name of the town where I grew up as his user name right now and posts my real name every time he gets frustrated because he isn't smart enough to win an argument (how sad is that?), so as far as I'm concerned you can save the drama.
When I talk about the trolls posting anonymously, I'm talking about the cowards that come on here, post other peoples info, make threats and hide behind an anonymous proxy to do it.
Remind you of anyone?
It's all they've got, Jax. It makes them feel in control and intimidating. Typical cyber-bully behavior, nothing more.

And every time this issue comes up, they trot out Barnes/Torchwood as their poster child and use her when they couldn't care less about the woman, and she hasn't even posted here in a couple of years now.

These people are beyond despicable. They're downright evil.

I won by default. It was "da fault" of Ralff that he got banned while on the throne, so to speak that is.
I think it's a Topix first.

CNN video: British teen commits suicide after online attacks
14 year old Hannah Smith has committed suicide after becoming the target of internet trolls.
A face book page in her memory has been taken down after the same trolls began to attack the dead teen there. Her sister has now become their target.
Most of the attacks originated from an unregulated, New York based forum where those responsible plan a "celebration" following the young girls death.
http://www.cnn.com/video/...
My gawd, there is something very wrong with this world. The Internet has created monsters.

I found it really interesting when a poster claimed earlier that most of the "hate" they saw came from the "far left".
I mean, seriously. You would have to be blind not to see what really goes on here and the constant hate from the so called far "right".
These people are insane, morally bankrupt, hypocritical and insane.
I see it all when I disagree with you or anyone else, you say I am an idiot or worse, Fine I can live with that.(General statement) When someone gives an opposing argument you most generally get nasty I can live with that. And I will agree there is some from the right as well. But you and several other posters take it to the next level.
I freely admit I dislike President Obama but he is my President
Most of you on the left can’t say that about President Bush you know the Devil Incarnate to the left after all he did steal the election for VP Gore (oh I helped with VP Gores campaign) I have friends who would agree about Bush.
And yes there are some on the Right who hate President Obama and thinks he is the Devil Incarnate but I find more on the left.
Believe it or not most Americans don’t care one way or another about the President unless something drastic happens then 70-80% if not more will pull behind him. Yes even some right leaning people will. I have seen it.

Right, if you are a minor when you are convicted of a crime, under most circumstances, any criminal record will be gone by the time you are 24 years old and even in the most extreme cases (other than sexual assault) there is no record of criminal activity by the time you are 26.
Those records are also sealed.
In the case of a sexual assault, that conviction will become part of your adult criminal record.
Like I said earlier, being convicted of a crime when you are a minor does not follow you around causing problems once you are an adult.
If they continue their criminal behavior it sure does.. As I stated when they turn 18 they will still have a hard time finding a job since the record is still available.. That is what FDLE does not local LEA's.. Those records are kept for life in a huge file cabinet..

That's right, you don't have one, and you never do when you go on these scavenger hunts like the vulture you are. You sure spend a lot of time and energy researching people and their old posts.
Get a life, moron.
They never quite get the point do they?

Considering my own experience I would suggest no one ever post on the net using their real name, but when I talk about anonymous trolls I'm talking about the ones that post other peoples info, make threats and stalk people...all the while hiding behind an anonymous proxy because they think it can't be traced back to them.

Those people are just cowards.

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short – enjoy it.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don't worry, God never blinks.
16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19.. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need
42. The best is yet to come...
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

The biggest liars and hypocrites on these boards. And these are the kind of people that champion gun rights so feverishly. Now I know where the crazed murderers come from.
Question to you are you a monster are you a gun fanatic in restriction. You have the right to bear arms it is plain and simple. I do not own a weapon nor will I ever own a Weapon. But it is everyone’s right to decide if they want to own a weapon.

Question how many Americans have been arrested in liberal communities for having a butter knife in their lunch. I know of at least 2 people. The left is not proactive they are reactive. But truth is most people are reactive.

I hear you, Jax.

See I never deliberately posted my real name. It happened by accident when I shared a story from a writing website on the Troll Rehab thread five years ago. But these vultures seek out everything and follow people around once they target you.

I was very naive about the Internet back then, and I hadn't even been on the Internet for six years prior to 2007. Once they had me on their hit list, they stalked me to other Forums, used my name, then found my son's name, and they haven't stopped since. Of course we all know not to share personal identifying information now. But they are cowards who blame those they abuse.

And that feeble excuse about people putting their info out there is hogwash. It's their way of excusing their own wrongdoing. They have no morals, no principles, no sense of right and wrong. But it's the Internet where cowards like this feel brave and they think they can get away with anything. They're not capable of doing any real harm. They just like to give that impression, but who knows what lunatic might get a hold of someone's home address and try something? That's the bottom line, so they do put people in harm's way.

The lot of them are despicable human beings in my opinion and nothing but weak cowards.

If you see the left wanting to infringe on our freedoms I'd love for you to be more sepecific about what they are doing that makes you feel that way.
The problem is I know more Democrats than Republicans. So my point of view is a little jaded. I am from Illinois after all.
