Since when did meth cure cancer and AIDS. Are you high? ..Are you?

Are you saying that crystal meth, by definition, cannot be used responsibly? How do you know that?

Our neighbor used Meth, skinny and here teeth were rotten. She would pimp her kids if you though she could get a fix. But hey, lets make it legal and call it her right.

“Pro-life” is the extremist view. It only has two stances. That it is a, wrong to abort, and that b, people shouldn’t be allowed to abort. The only minor variations come in when they allow exceptions for rape/incest. Whereas pro-choice covers a large range where one would still fall under it. At least, that’s my understanding of the positions. I’m not sure why anyone would call themselves “pro-life” if they think abortions are valid for other reasons or think that it isn’t wrong, or pro-choice if they think it shouldn’t be allowed.

What are you, pro-ambivalent? There’s not really a middle ground here.

This just can’t be possible.

It actually is. Because people don’t think for themselves. They believe they are part of a group, and follow the opinions of those who also are part of that group. They might have never even HEARD of a topic before, yet as soon as they learn their party’s stance, they’re not going to change their mind. Of course there will be minor variations, but mostly, they all feed off each other like one big mindless organism. Republicans and Democrats and any other party.

Kasic, you are so wrong on so many accounts. People do think for themselves and that is what causes all of the controversy. People don’t agree with your views (as an example) and what do you do? You call them extremists.

Lets take the pro-choice question. Conservatives are against pro-chose for many reasons, but I can give you an example, the UK using the carcases for heating the hospitals instead of respecting the fact they are actually human beings and deserve at least the dignity of a burial. It is this disrespect for human life that galls so many. Liberals talk about a woman’s right and dismiss the fact that a human being was created and has it’s rights taken away.

You evidently come from a socialist country and expect all others to accept what you have been taught as gospel. It doesn’t work that way in every country. You mistake a difference of opinion for not thinking for themselves solely on the fact they disagree with you and your ideals. Has it ever occurred to you that you are the one who has been conditioned to think as you do?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why american soldiers should not be allowed in ukraine?

Flabby, you are too young to remember the cold war era. It was not a pleasant time and people were worried about a nuclear war with the USSR. Eventually the USSR broke up because of a poor economic system that didn’t work well. I believe Putin is trying to rebuild the USSR and if we don’t step in we will be back to the days of constant threats of war.

You needn’t worry though because our president is considered weak and this is why Putin is willing to invade the Ukraine. He knows nothing will be done to stop him.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Apparently the government could wreck SD

I believe this will be my last post in this thread, but i would you guys to look at the following and think about it.

This from one of our founding fathers.

A democracy (Republic) cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship."

And this is how a free country deteriorates. We are now in the dependence stage.

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.

Ungeziefer, You are absolutely right that it started with Bush and his Patriot Act. He started the ball rolling and we expected Obama to do away with it but he didn’t, he expanded it. This is exactly what they are using to justify the surveillance now. And yes the term Terrorist has expanded to include all military past and present, those who go to church, conservatives, and those who own firearms. The also include any who speak badly about our government.

Government is always mandating something and mandating GPS hardwired into the computer is just the latest. I read about it about a month ago so it is a new mandate. They like to keep things like this hush so the people don’t get irate.

Although people aren’t being black bagged as you call it, the preparation for this is in the financing bill for the Navy. I forget the name of it, but he signed it into law. I think there was a discussion about it somewhere on here but don’t quote me.

We have already been profiled over and over by websites that can sell the information to businesses. It’s high profit for them. Of course this gathering of unlimited information is legal according to the Patriot Act. But this doesn’t make it Constitutional by any means. It makes me wonder where our Supreme Court is and why they aren’t speaking up for us when presented with cases.

We shall see as Obamacare unfolds, if it does. You know, if the debacle of their administration of this program thus far is any indication, I don’t see our healthcare as being any too safe in the hands of these bureaucrats.

Vika, If you find this incorrect please give me a credible source. Not Wikipedia.

H.R. 3200 section 2521, Pg. 1001, paragraph 1. The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that— ‘‘is or has been used in or on a patient; ‘‘and is— ‘‘a class III device; or ‘‘a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.”

V2V communications – the age of the ‘smart vehicle’ – live with it! A) No tracking of GPS data permissible (or admissible) without a warrant (which shouldn’t be granted absent other evidence of wrongdoing), B) If you really think the government would be interested in your weekly trip to Walmart a tinfoil hat may be in order & C) People who may be interested would include your insurance company… if, for example, you prove yourself to be the safe, steady driver your premium goes down.

Yes it is, and has been, for a very long time been able to remote manage a pc… in fact, I do it regularly. However, if it’s off with no electricity supply it’s physically impossible to turn it on. Don’t know about you, but on the rare occasions when I turn my pc off, I turn it off at the wall (not for paranoid OMG they may look at all my kitty picture reasons, but long ingrained ‘fire safety’ – thx mom & dad).

Can’t turn a camera on if it’s not connected ;) – outside of some very specific instances, I can’t see anyone being interested… can you?

And finally… You state you watched your son in law commit at least one criminal act (unauthorised access to a private computer / computer system) and come here to post about it rather than report it to the authorities??? Accessory after the fact?

You say live with it? Does this mean we should roll over and live with the eroding privacy being foisted upon us without saying a word? And yes, the government is doing a lot of things that should have a warrant attached and doesn’t. Is this just another thing to live with? How much do we give up because it is the age we live in? This is how we got in this predicament in the first place, accepting whatever is mandated to us buy a power hungry political structure, a structure out of control.

If the government isn’t interested in our everyday routines or who we talk to on our phones, then why the large data dumps of all our calls? Who are they afraid of, the people they are supposed to represent? I have strong suspicions of why they wish to have every last bit of information they can garner from us but won’t delve into them. Suffice it to say, they are after this information and are bypassing not only the constitution but laws themselves to get it. When did the American people become the enemy?

Of course you can unplug your computer or camera and some people do, but how many take this precaution? People go about their daily routines never suspecting anything they do would interest the government and so they don’t think of taking precautions. How many people give out their social security number ignoring the fact ID fraud has become ramped in today’s world? How free are you with your credit information? Have you bought anything online? Everyday this information is stolen,but you do it anyway. Now ask yourself, why would the government need all your banking information so you can try to sign up for their “outstanding” healthcare? I know the answer, but I won’t dwell on that. Everywhere you turn the government is trying to gather information about you in some way. Are you going to accept the chip our illustrious leader has proposed in Obamacare? Will this be another “it’s just the age we live in” answer?

And finally, I happen to be a staff member on the site my son-in-law perpetrated this horrendous crime on. I’m pretty sure he is fine with the law, after all it is the age we live in and I guess we’ll have to live with it.

As far as conspiracies go, they usually contain truth or started with a truth. However, we aren’t looking at conspiracies when it comes to what is going on now. This is real and our government is not trying to hide it. NSA for instance, is doing their best to expand the surveillance on the private citizen. Next year all cars made in America are required to have GPS hard wired into the computers. This is being mandated by Homeland Security giving access to the tracking device for individual tracking. Apple just got busted for having code in their OS allowing a back door to the NSA. While being discussed on radio Apple released a fix for it, or so they say. Think about the phones or computers you use, are they safe from manipulation by the government? No, they can turn your computer on after you have shut it down and gone to bed…and nary a light will come on. You might not know that they can turn the cameras on without a light flickering. This and much more are not only available, but being used as we speak. This is not conspiracy, it is fact.

I watched my son-in-law (works for the NSA) take a little information from a game server I’m on and extract every players name, ISP, and what they said in a matter of minutes. from his home computer. He ran it over night and told me who, when, and what they said in a 24 hr period. Conspiracy? Nope, fact. Breaking down this forums code would be a cakewalk for people like him. Now multiply that by the number of workers and locations the NSA has and it is staggering. Add to that CIA, Homeland Security, and the FBI. This my friends is past Socialism and into full blown tyranny.

What is all of this about? It’s about control of the citizenry. It is not just this administration, but all who come before have striven for. It has been held back until this administration though, now it has become open and fast. This country is spiraling out of our control at breakneck speed and all you fellas can do is repeat the same old democrat talking points that are really immaterial at this point. Yeah, tell me to get the tinfoil, call me a nut-job, but you damn well better look around you and see what is happening. This isn’t Kansas anymore. (No pun intended)

Karma, this forum is neither serious or a discussion. There aren’t many new people come on here and people like you are the reason. Not everyone in the United states is a socialists as you seem to think. I’m ready to make my predictions on the November elections. The republicans sill take the senate. They will take it because of Obamacare and the debt. They will take it because they want to neuter Obama and his policies. There is a very good chance the speaker of the house will be retired as well, for his mealy mouse politics. Remember when I told you the people were awake? Well they are wide awake and they are mad as hornets right now. It is people like you who have stirred them up. Brace yourself for November pardner.

You will have to excuse the mistakes in grammar as the above post and this one are written very late at night. First, let me address a remark Tenco made, that we were all children at one time. This is true, but being a child is much different than raising a child.

I gave you people my experiences raising children, and of course you have this irresistible urge to twist it to fit your ignorance of child rearing. But hey, you geniuses carry on, you know it all.

(snip). But the rest of you tend to ignore the facts. What I posted above is true and you can look in your history books to see that. The 1st amendment is not as safe and permanent as some would lead you to believe. It has been under attack for many years. Just like your precious internet is under attack right now. It’s’ all about control. If there is any opposing view against this administration, there are consequences. This is obvious and has actually been reported in some news agencies. It is apparent anywhere you look, including SD. Quite the opposing opinions, right Don? When facts are presented and the liberal posters attack them you are doing exactly what you are complaining about, stifling free speech.

Just a few days ago agents were sent to several newspapers to monitor what they wrote about the government. Luckily, they pulled back but it was an obvious action to limit the content of what was written for public consumption. Those who think the 1st amendment is safe and all the others should be trashed are living in a dream. If any of them are eliminated, all of them will go. This is exactly why nothing is ever really accomplished on this forum, your heads are in the sand and you can’t see what is really going on around you. There is no discussions, only arguments and insults thrown at anyone who disagrees with the liberal mindset.

Also keep in mind that many animals that would have become extinct have been saved by zoos. In America, almost all of the money used for wildlife habitat and wildlife welfare comes from a tax called the Pittman-Robertson act, paid by gun owners, hunters, and fishermen exclusively.

Wow, the few here using common sense is Twilight. Most of you go from one extreme to the other. It just so happens there is a middle ground. When my children, whom I loved and still love unconditionally, misbehaved and the need for a spanking was evident there were limits. when really young a slap on a diapered but (not a baby of course) was plenty and believe it or not didn’t hurt them at all. When older they got two swats with a belt unless they lied, then they got a third that had a little smarts with it. One thing you did not do was lie and get caught. Now they are adults and extremely good parents. As twilight said, they are productive members of society and good family people….and pay those taxes you all want control of.

And Karma is right about those little monsters in the stores. No discipline or instruction on how to be good people. Those are the parents who like to say “No No” and let it go. No teaching and no discipline. These are the kids who disrespect adults they encounter and through the tantrums you all love to watch. They are also the kids most likely to become the dredges of society.

Now the big question. How many of you have children? If you don’t you have no idea of what you are talking about.

Government has been trying to stifle free speech for a long time, It has only been the last administration that has been so close to accomplishing this. In my opinion we are close to a tyranny right now. Our government is doing many of the same things Germany did during Hitlers regime. Government, by it’s very nature, tends to take as much power as it can. It doesn’t matter which party is in power, although Democrats are more prone to bigger government. This November you will see a turning point in our country. We will continue down our present path to tyranny or we will pause. I hesitate to say turn around because we have been on this path too long. We may have gone too far to recover.

During the depression we had industry to fall back on and during WW2 our industrial complex was revved up to produce for the war effort. This time we have no industry to fall back on as we have slowly over decades become a service economy. This negates us falling back on producing any products that we can produce new money with. This is also why borrowing is hurting us right now. In other words we circulate the same money instead of making products to produce new money. If you study this you will realize why the wealth of America has slowly but surely gone to the top. This leaves me with the thought that paying back our enormous debt will allow more wealth to leave our country without a way to replace it.

Our government, although it has always tried to usurp our Constitution in one way or another with laws, is now ignoring our rule of law. Nothing our present administration is doing is really Constitutional. Our government is destroying the freedoms of the people with their extreme intrusion into the privacy and societal structure of this country. Dismantling the Bill of Rights is imperative to take control of the people of America. Our right to free speech has been limited more and more over the years, but now it is front and center. Does the stifling of free speech remind you of another country we all know of? Maybe China, Russia? Speak ill of the governments of these countries and you will disappear. Yet some of the laws signed by our president remind me of these same countries.

You might wonder why I fight to protect our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. I don’t pick and choose which of these I argue for. I lament every freedom we lose, and we have lost many as the encroachment of government continues. If our people neglect to stand together against this encroachment, we will lose this once great country. To give an example: Some would love to see our 2nd amendment done away with, yet when the 1st amendment is attacked they become activists to protect it. Now if you have alienated those who swear by the 2nd amendment, what makes you thing they will stand with you on the 1st? This will cause a loss of both and eventually all of the Bill of Rights. Yet if you stand and protect both amendments you will keep them both. It’s the old divide and concur scenario.

You guys might be depressed over the current trend, but society is awake and they don’t like what they see. They see the current progressive movement as disastrous and are now starting to move things back to where they were before all of this self centered rhetoric we have been privileged to endure. I told you guys a long time ago that you were not the majority and now you are seeing what I was trying to tell you. Traditions do count. You are about to see the democrats lose the senate and people will be speaking loud and clear at the poles. Even the democrats know this is going to happen. The republicans that will win will be more conservative in their actions and the old republican guard will be moving to the right. I believe you will see the house speaker demoted, if he is even re-elected. Traditional marriage will be upheld. I find it interesting the majority of gays don’t support gay marriage, only a small radical group.

It was senseless and tragic. It was also an excuse for politicians to use it to advance their agendas. I forget which politician said it, never let a good tragedy go to waste. The politicians have milked that tragedy ever since. They used it to put programs into place that have led to what we are experiencing now.

As far as the people were concerned, they wanted answers and never got them. Money donated to the families mysteriously disappeared and never reached them.

Topic: Serious Discussion / What would you do?

Posted by VikaTae
That’s just it. It is only when that particular individual becomes aggrivated that we get a glimpse of his true frustration how very few he can find who actually think like him. The rest is just hyperbole. It’s when he is frustrated, we get a glimpse of the real issue as he sees it. That is both fascinating and informative.

More of your psychology, even though you aren’t trained in that field? When I become aggravated it is usually at you or Karma. Yet you have not been threatened with gun play, since basically that is what you are referring too. I happen to be a very courteous person to everyone I meet. But there are a few I read as nincompoops that I immediately don’t like and I walk away. Just don’t want to be around them. I tend to be able to read people very well. Now you mention you can get along with your family unless there is an ocean between you, why is that? I get along with my family in person.

I state my opinions on an issue and I’m not shy about it. I stand by my convictions as well. It is the liberals on here that always resort to name calling when they have lost an argument and know it. I understand that is the way of the liberals as the politicians do it too. I also have noticed that when the majority won’t agree with them, they try to force their will upon the opposition.

Now, I’m not going to dive into the make my day law and you would believe me anyway, but I will say that my friend in fear of his life will get the help he needs because of that law. It is law. I was not raised to be a wienie like so many liberals on here. I don’t believe in giving up my freedoms for a little security. This is how a liberal operates and why they lose their freedoms. The sad thing is they take everyone elses with them. I am not one to watch my friend die while filming it. I am not one to run from a situation. If you are, fine. I explained what I would do and now you have gone from the subject to me. I am guessing you all ran out of liberal arguments. I would never trust you guys to watch my back in any situation, you do not have the gonads to stand up for yourself except in a forum of like people.
