“Welcome to 1984. You’ll learn to love Big Brother, too.”

This started with the “Patriot” Act, which gave the government unprecedented powers to look into the private affairs of American. It, along with the administration’s claim of a right to indefinitely detain anyone suspected of supporting terrorism, with no right to a trial or even to know the specifics of the charges, was embraced by the country at large.

Surprisingly, most “conservatives” supported this abrogation of our rights, reasoning that the Constitution, and specifically the Bill of Rights, was not a “suicide pact”, and that the dangers of terrorism were such that we should forget about our rights. This is but a continuation of that long, sad period.

What did the Hondurans do?

With "Elections" the way they are what choice do we have?

I sincerely hope the military will side with the patriots in the days to come. . Now this school shooting. . Something doesn't smell right. . Not saying it's a false flag, don't know enough yet, but as of this evening, lots of details unknown. Of course the shooter is dead, the Mother is dead. Evidently Dad still alive as is the brother. .
