    All this unrest is fomented and orchestrated and it could be that the USA is being set up the same way by the multiculturalists to do the same with us. I do not trust them because they and their media have been playing and pitting Americans against each other. The USA needs to be united and that scares the hxll out of the elites.

    I’m thinking more surveilance and microphones inside the offices of our elected officials than on the citizens would make more sense.

    Absolutely we need a justice system that is fair and treats everyone equally. Without that and we do not have a country worthy of respect. What concerns me most is how we are seeing average taxpayers being put at the bottom of the barrel while the interests of public servants are given preference.

    As a forensic expert in homicides and trauma said.....if someone that is handcuffed and restrained and in police custody ends up with a broken neck, it can only be a result of abuse or a crime on the part of someone in officialdom? Someone has some serious explaining to do. If this type behavior is not checked now we will all become potential victims.

    My view on all of this is changing big time. My suggestion is many of these problems could be eliminated by reducing our police by 50% and encourage every law abiding American to be armed like the Swiss. Use the resulting savings to pay down our national debt.. Too many police leads to a police state.

    It seems our public unions are bilking taxpayers so they can go off to retire in their 40s in the Villages of Florida while most taxpayers are working for another 25 years or more. Public servants shouldn’t have it better than we the public, but that’s how it now works in America.

    Forget what you hear from the media and owned politicians. In the end I blame much of the current turmoil and situation in the USA on dirty treasonous politicians and bankers that put their greed first and usurped patriotism and the integrity, unity and economic security of the USA.

    Our nation’s problems really began many years ago when bankers pushed to eliminate tariffs paid by importers and replace them with income taxes and eventually sell it as free trade. European nations moved production to the USA back then, to get access to our market. Tariffs worked in our national interest, but income taxes put us into national debt

    These mfers have purposely promoted poverty and destroyed what was a much more cohesive economic secure country where American CITIZENS had meaningful decent paying manufacturing jobs... through outsourcing, and importing illegals etc to undercut American workers. Their actions created the debt and dependent society we see. When the economy is purposely undercut by the policies of Harvard elites, the result is what we are seeing. It can not be denied that our leaders did this to our nation.

    I used to think Carlin was a liberal but then I also believed that true capitalism meant people who took risks with their capital should be rewarded.

    That was before Americans were propagandized by globalism, by political elites and their crony lobbyists who pretend to serve us when the reality has become they use us. The system is now a stepping stone leading the elites and the few to corrupt riches via crony capitalism where they get bailed out, and all risk is borne by taxpayers.

    We have allowed a vile third rail of political ideology.... global corporatism to corrupt not only our system, but to contaminate conservatism and take away our national sovereignty and belief in real capitalism itself.

    Much that Carlin said applies with a large amount of relevance in today’s corrupt world.

    Toppling Saddam and Ghaddafi at the behest of neocons has has not worked out so well for Americans.

    Not only did we spend trillions making profits for MIC and private contractors, but we also lost huge quality of life for thousands of servicemen and families from grievous wounds and side effects that will require a lifetime of healthcare and support. This doesn’t include those thousands who lost the most of all - their lives.

    We didn’t even get access to the oil that was supposed to cover costs. Saddam kept the turmoil and Iran in check. Ghaddafi prevented the millions of illegal immigrants from using Libya as a port of entry for African immigrants going to Europe.

    There is an element about ISIS that should make us all very wary and suspicious. Who and why was it was created? The Shiites were never much of a problem in Iran, and in fact we put them as a majority in charge. The Sunnis as a minority killed many Americans. The Sunnis orchestrated 9-11.

    When minorities are allowed to have charge of and run countries the outcome is not ever going to be a democracy.

    The only solution I support is getting America out of the ME, and start hunkering in and rebuilding the USA for Americans and lowering our debt. We also need to defend our nation from being invaded so slick politicians can divide us and big business gets cheap labor. We the citizenry are being played as saps by the political elites.

    I’ve become very skeptical about all such events. Who creates the violence and who pushes it? We in the public sphere are typically fed our points of view by intellectual elites with Harvard degrees. It doesn’t make them wrong, but it doesn’t make them honest or right either.

    In my view those that played a part in the original killing and severing of the spinal cord need to have answers and need to be fully investigated. The expansion of these riots and who caused it is an unknown, unless Al Sharpton is now on site.

    Anarchy is sometimes driven by an establishment that wants an end result that is beneficial only to them but anti-Constitutional to most Americans. There is a huge elitist constituency that wants all Americans afraid and disarmed. Think not? Think again. What better way to move this forward than to promote anarchy and martial law. Establishment provocateurs have a history of infiltrating peaceful demonstrations in an effort to turn them violent and give an excuse to get public support so as to bump heads.

    I only wish I was not as cynical of the system, but I am. We will never know the truth. Search for provocateurs in peaceful demonstrations posing to change public opinion.

    We have liberal usurpers that are working feverishly to kick out WASPS. Is it because they believe we are inferior? I’m a believer in appropriate and balanced representation in a democracy, and definitely not a believer of superiority by any group. Yet liberal elites that want more power, money and representation for their own clique attempt to make themselves superior.

    Thanks, and I understand that IRAs, etc are tax deferred and that is why those in Congress don’t worry about the “death tax” on average Americans. It is because they forget in their quest to appease a select few that many of those with the most wealth got rich only because taxpayers subsidized their wealth. It is called crony capitalism and it has infected our economic culture.

    Goldman and JP Morgan would be bankrupt if not for taxpayer bailouts. Farmers have for years been handed taxpayer money. The owners of most of the professional sports teams would have much less of an estate had not taxpayers been assessed to build their stadiums. Wal-Mart gets special taxpayer handouts to build warehouses for Chinese stuff.

    If there should be no death tax for a few, then there should be none for the many that were forced to subsidize those few.

    The day when many of the richest in America got rich on their own without major help from taxpayers was over some time ago.

People should be encouraged to give their wealth to good charitable causes that will make the USA a better country for all, but that is just me.

    If we are going to eliminate the death tax why not get rid of the tax on the more modest nest aid that most Americans will hand down to spouses or kids - their IRAs. Instead it is taxed as full earned income.

Most (and especially) retailers have a number listed where customers can voice a broad complaint about anything, but not Wal-mart. They think they know what is best and they do not wish to hear from customers

    They have one number that does not give callers that option except for addressing specific stores or orders. Then you are “gigging” individual managers or workers when it is the CEO that really deserves the gig.

    They do not even have a zero option to give live assistance to such a customer. If you use “0” they say no such option and hang up. I rarely ever shop there for a lot of reasons.

Unless we find a way to Constitutionally get big money out of our politics we will be screwed on such money making freedom stealing legislation as the Patriot Act. A good conservative friend has always told me we need public funding of elections, so that the impetus and power goes to individual citizens. Those candidates who can get volunteers to go door to door deserve to trump those with a few very deep pocket friends.

    TPP and all the other corrupt trade pacts that have crushed the USA are a direct result of crooked politicians of both Parties who are in the bag to and favor big global business over US sovereignty and the USA Constitution.

    Corporatists are not conservatives. Corporatists are the enemy because they put their profits and money ahead of the USA.

    For Americans there is always enough money for another war in some far off place, but never enough political stamina to secure our own borders and save us billions.

    The reality is that the Saudis and Sunnis created AQ and they did 9-11, and somehow our current absurd policies are about giving them whatever they want, while we go after the Shiites. AQ and the Iraq Sunnis killed how many American GIs? We have a allowed a corrupt manipulated govt and a media of propaganda to work against the USA interest.

    If more Americans were armed and trained we’d need about half the cops. It would mean savings to our treasury and rights. The citizens are apt to take care of and keep our communities safe. However the elites want most Americans unarmed and the police under their thumb.

    Foreign entities buying our USA politicians is a huge issue that needs corrected.

    Global corporations owned by the Russians, Chinese and Japanese, Mexico, Americans etc. should have no right to lobby our Congress.

    When these international companies sell ownership and employ the world and send profits off shore they should have no right to influence or mold our government policies for their benefit. They are not American companies nor citizens.

    Social Security works as an insurance policy, not an investment. It would work better if we had honest competent government that didn’t sell out other Americans.

    When we can’t trust our government to keep a promise because they are corrupt and incompetent who do we blame? As my profile has stated from my first post I don’t trust either Party. They serve their elite masters and not we the people nor do they represent average working Americans.

    What about the 60 year old illegals or invitees from Yemen that came here a year or 10 years ago ago at the invitation of Obama and Bush and the US Chamber of Commerce and the DNC and RNC for cheap labor and votes that will soon be sucking on our Social Security trust? What about the SS trust money that was used from everything from war in Africa to tax cuts to food stamps, but not to defend our borders?

    If it was a perfect world we’d be taking care of ourselves and our own families instead of waiting for politicians. Since it isn’t a perfect world, we’ll still be taking care of others that were irresponsible. It is why we need a system that gives a baseline support to those who funded much of it aside from welfare. But we shouldn’t be giving the funding away to run an incompetent government and fighting wars.

    Most Americans are astute enough to understand that another Bush or Clinton in the White House in not in America’s or their interest. Their Bush /Clinton agenda is more about Singapore GM and TPP and turning the USA in Mexico lite than rebuilding America.

    I will not vote for any President unless they make the USA their unadulterated total priority. Not the Middle East, not war with Iran, not BS free trade, and not immigration reform and not scams to give Wall St oligarchs or multi-national corporations more clout. It is time to rebuild the USA for hard working Americans.

    Why did the media and NFL elites do everything in their power to put Tebow out to pasture? Was it a concerted effort because he was an overt Christian? It seems that the benefactors of tax money for stadiums frown on Tebow type Christians except when they are handing over their hard earned tax dollars to make the recipients richer.

    Any conservative that supports trade pacts like TPP really need to examine the underlying motives. These trade pacts are not about free markets. Their goal is undermining our national sovereignty, and our Constitution, and most importantly our endowed American rights- for the sake of profits for global (not American) corporations. Conservative and corporatist views may have been somewhat in alignment in 1960, but not in 2015 when big business has no specific US citizenship.

    Figures don’t lie but liars figure.

    So what happens when they get access to tax credits, Section 8, and SS disability because they can’t speak English.. That so called economic positive turns a big negative? Not to mention the costs for medicaid, education, access go our retirement SS trust when they paid virtually nothing. The costs go up astronomically when they can better play our system..

    We already know how it was done after Reagan’s amnesty.

    Like most of us on here we only give unpaid opinions.

    The right to incorporate as an entity of property was granted and not by God. Before big business went global they were American. That is the major difference between 1960s corporations and those of today. Now they view all countries as a means to an end, and not as a loyal American citizen. They now view sovereignty as an obstruction to that end.

    They are essentially like mercenaries serving only those who pay, buy or invest in them whether they be in USA or a sovereign wealth fund of China or Yemen, or Brazil. . I don’t have problem with global corporations serving global shareholders, but I do when they get to buy our politicians. Like it or not that leviathan is us and if it is corrupted we get screwed.
