Prove it to me. The fact that you believe everything they say despite proven lies is proof that you have been had. Do your own research and stop believing everything you hear from the Obama administration. No need to be watching every American, suspects yes but not everyone. Theyll just keep passing laws (when noone is paying attention) thatll continue to destroy your liberties.

You seem to side with whatever the Obama administration says and does anyway so you are already a lost cause.
Look at the issue not the party.

They have thwarted dozens of attacks? Sound bites being spewed off by the government and thats about it. They just say anything and thats it, it`s true. Get your heads out of your asses Americans. You have become a hypnotized country believing any one-sided statement from your government. Sheeple you have become.
s about it. They just say anything and that

People are so brainwashed these days that they`ll give up everything in their lives except for their Playstation and satellite TV. Are we supposed to tell our governments what to do? Not have them in our faces every second. They are breaking the law left right and centre and the powers that can prevent it are as corrupt as the government. Not sure of hero or traitor are the correct words.

Always had to make a lunch and bring it to school back home. Kyushoku is crap. They like to use the cheapest foods available and then coat them with sauces. Japanese people love their sauces. Everyone in Japan thinks that healthy equals no calories Why?

Women were designed to bitch and complain to their husbands. Men just have to stop being pussies and tell them to can it; especially over dumb things. Did they gey married to their man to control them or to enjoy life with them. Harsh I know but nobody needs that crap i their lives.

They tend to talk to themselves all the time. Also, everyone says yosh when they have to get up and get going. I`m wondering why everyone has to say the same it. Also, when a Japanese salesstaff says sorry to you for some reason they all use that high babytalk voice.

My mom used to swat me a few times with the fly swatter if I got out of line. Aside from that, I never got hit by my dad. After seeing my brother get the strap by him I made sure I was good boy. That was 30 years ago.

Another fishy story. Why climb up on the rail? Why didn`t the mother tell the kid to get his ass back inside?

Manufacturing is the backbone of a nation. send it overseas and instead create a service economy at home and youll be going downhill in no time. As I said before, dont expect corporations and governments to help you. Its not their job, they want revenue (government shouldnt be a business) so you the individual aren`t worth too much them. It is the community as a whole that has failed by letting these thugs run your life.
Stay out of the TPP. Prices might go down but so will wages, cost of living will go up, greed will be more than ever out of control.

They are right. Gas is way too high. But don`t expect the government to help you, they are lining their pockets and taxing things to no end.

Yes. Growing a few plants for personal use should be fine also. Have local government (not federal) regulate it for taxes. issuing permits, and doing sporadic inspections.

Austerity exists because the community has failed. The individual has been pushed to the back and now the governments and corporations have gained so much power that the individual is now powerless and ultimately has become dependant on them. The community must stick together if they want change.

Interestingly, the examples in the article only relate to comments towards people who aren`t caucasian. Why is that?
Jamie Foxx has made derogatory comments towards white folks and not even a raised voice against it. Hypocrisy gone wild. Time for everyone to get on an even playing field cuz the world is stooping lower and lower. Time to look forward.
