    How do we handle the dreamers ?

    Hi dinarham :) You did nothing wrong. This thread you started was just another example of a few trolls dragging it through the mud once they decided to turn on you, just as they do to a few others here. Unfortunately, a few here want to censor anything outside of their ability to discuss, the main reason a few even come here is to find anyone they can target and begin their display of pulling threads into the gutter while accusing others of whatever it takes to justify their behavior. Apparently they are very frustrated and they find it fun to hide behind their labels and beliefs as they violate those very things by how they treat anyone who they deem does not tow their line. It is just a game to them. Now that you have been labeled and have a taste of how a few operate here, it is a good thing, now you know how insecure some are, and those who need constant validation by their peers who join them. They make it a "left-right" issue...but the reality is some just enjoy hunting down those they judge as less than themselves to make them feel better about their narrow view of the world around them. The aim is to create their own safe space on the forum, tearing apart anyone who posts something that offends them. They will blame everyone else but themselves and their own tactics as to why so many have stopped posting. Many here are tired of their constant BS...and hypocritical actions. Think of it as this being a forum where the majority of folks are vegetarians...and there are a few folks who who enjoy a good steak and other meat. The majority will soon accuse the meat eater of being a murderer and how they are ruining the earth by their hunger for meat. They will claim meat causes cancer and is killing the earth, and those who eat it deserve to die. No feeling or empathy towards their target, only desire to see them gone, out of their haven, and will relentlessly attempt to put words into the mouths of their targets to justify their hatred. It is nothing more than that example...division is what some here thrive upon. It has little to do with politics, politics just provides a reason to attack.
  2. I didn't quote Jones, his name was part of the article posted. You should pay closer attention before reacting in your usual childish manner.
  3. Do you have proof it was Syria and Assad? Since 2013, the same accusations have been made, all found to be false, why is this any different? James Mattis admitted twice they had NO proof it was Assad that did this, he stated this just recently. How can anyone blindly cheer bombing a country based upon an accusation only? Are these Fox news hosts "libretards" too now because they dare question the President? Carlson, Ingraham? http://thehill.com/homenews/media/383147-conservatives-trump-supporters-slam-trump-over-syria-missile-strike "Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham both questioned Trump’s decision Friday to launch strikes in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack last weekend that the U.S. has attributed to the Syrian government. Carlson noted the move was inconsistent with the president’s message during his 2016 campaign, and Ingraham said she found that intervention in other countries could be risky, as shown in the Iraq War, according to the Daily Beast." Michael Savage, a prominent conservative radio host and author, tweeted that “sad warmongers hijacking our nation” following news of the strike. Infowars’s Alex Jones broke down in tears while speaking out against the military action. “If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad,” Jones said of Trump. “We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick." Conservative commentator Ann Coulter also shared her opposition to the strike, retweeting a series of other conservative or right-wing figures who condemned the move and resurfacing Trump's own past tweets against military action in Syria. And far-right figures Mike Cernovich and Laura Loomer also ripped Trump over the military strike in Syria. These have been some of the presidents strongest supporters...should they be accused now of being "libretards"?

    Missing Love One

    I'm thrilled she was found and safe Give her a hug from all of us Patty and also good to hear from you dear.
  5. Amazing what some get away with when the people feel threatened and demand "gun control". The cesspool will always oblige when it comes to disarming the public just as the public supported the 'patriot act' so they could feel safe. I am surprised at how many cheerleaders are saying nothing about something like this that throws due process to the road side, which means you will be treated like a "terrorist" first. Is that how the game is played? When a republican does this, everyone here shuts up or worse, make excuses as to why this is not a potential problem? If this thread began with a "democrat", (I use quotes around that word because in my opinion, BOTH parties = the same nonsense), it would have been about 5 pages by now with all the usual "they won't mess with my guns those demonic demonrats" mantra being thrown around. What a show. Really...think hard and long, AND sincerely about what this corrupt two party system has done to our country, and if anyone can still make excuses for anyone allowing it to get this far, then we really are screwed.

    Asking for DV Prayer Warriors again

    Tankdude, I am so sorry to hear of this my friend and sending you best wishes for a speedy recovery for Mandy. It is exhausting watching someone struggling in this manner, especially someone you love and adore. I do understand that... Thank you for bringing this to the board, and for the opportunity to be united and focused upon seeing Mandy regain her strength and health.
  7. Hi Shabs Not deep, just something I can remember in my more militant christian days when I would have become angry that some infidel would dare question...until I questioned it all myself and realized I knew nothing, after 30 years of believing some things, teaching those things, and wanting everyone else to believe just like I did, too much no longer made sense. As mentioned, just food for thought, but sometimes thinking for ones self can be offensive to others. Hope you are doing well! I'm looking forward to spring, hopefully soon...
  8. Here is something to consider that most either ignore or deny, but still valid. Just food for thought, not meant to cause the typical outbursts... Some say "god is not allowed in schools, therefore bad things happen". Really? Is he allowed in a church? If so, then why is there child molestation and abuse that occur there? What happened to those who were murdered inside of their churches? There is little logic to the idea that school problems are because of a god not being allowed there... and it never answers the question by blaming a devil or any other so called causes of evil which really is just an excuse to relieve god of responsibility and blame either a devil or creation itself. Many years ago, I once thought I had the "answers" to much of life...until those answers no longer made sense and I realized it was denial to continue following my own cognitive dissonance. Treating others as one desires to be treated is still the universal principle of life, if humans ever pursued that, much could actually change within ALL of us. No religious belief is necessary to follow it. The "Epicurean paradox" or "Riddle of Epicurus" is a version of the problem of evil:
  9. Trump signs memo recommending AG Sessions ban bump stocks — devices that turn weapons into 'machine guns' President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he has recommended that "bump stocks," or devices used to make semi-automatic weapons capable of firing hundreds of rounds per minute, be banned. Trump said he has signed a memorandum recommending that Attorney General Jeff Sessions declare that bump stocks are illegal.... LINK
  10. As far as certain drugs go, during trial tests, there is always an equation called "acceptable risk". Known harmful side effects are deemed "acceptable", if it only affects a few percentage points of the people used in the trials. Do the math...what is 1 percent of a million people an said drug sold? How many of those affected by a side effect of violent behavior for instance, that may act out their drug induced delusions upon another person? The number could get staggering over the long term...and the criminal aspect of it all are those who KNOW and yet still authorize certain drugs to be marketed. It is fact that in addition to some of these trials, those doing the testing have monetary connections to the pharma companies. This is too common especially within the testing of psychotropic drugs but it affects many other drug trials also, cancer drugs, heart related, etc. There will always be those who admire the profit potential much more than they want to actually help a person.
  11. What I think is the pinnacle of hypocrisy is so many folks running around demanding action to be taken by their government "gods" to address a weapon issue, and to control it, when that same government entity and its satellites have been complicit in trafficking arms on a global basis for decades. We are shocked to see school shootings and kids murdered at a school, yet we blink not an eye at the murder of innocents around the globe on a daily basis, and wink it off as 'collateral' damage while we cheer it on. Now that is rich with irony and hypocrisy Too many folks just do not get it...you cannot control or stop our culture of violence and death by controlling the weapon used to murder others. People will always find a way to kill each other, and justify it, and that has nothing at all to do with the weapon used. Some folks fill their heads with all manner of garbage, political, religious, media talking heads and these posers are actually sought out for answers. Is it any wonder at all why so much of society is screwed up and have lost the ability to reason? Guns do not react...PEOPLE do. Blame the trigger happy sociopaths who are a reflection of their culture and twisted ideologies, but the guns are not the issue. Bottom line: Weapons/guns have no beliefs or bias, inanimate objects, they cannot pursue anything or anyone without a human on the other end, and sometimes that human is a twisted bunch of wreckage willing to make their twisted statement and get their 15 minutes of "fame" by murdering innocents.
  12. Thanks my friend. We all must start thinking for ourselves. We have gone too long allowing others to dictate to us how we should think, feel, act, etc. It has come to the point where some folks no longer know who they are, other than what they are told by someone else. They have little to no original thought, it is mostly a mere echo of someone else's opinion. Public opinion continues to be shaped by "media", politics, religion, and a host of other venues that often do little more than promote divisive agenda's, keep the people fighting, and distracted, and the criminals continue to get away with their corruption. If "we the people" are to ever survive this 'mind rape', we are going to have to get beyond only paying attention to what we want to read or hear and start getting involved in developing our own lives and pursuit of peace outside of the constant barrage of political and religious manipulations. What is the alternative? To continue to allow all the "noise" to influence how we treat others or view the world around us cannot work, it only feeds cognitive dissonance and plays games with our minds. I have hope that most folks are intelligent enough to be honest with themselves when they can smell BS being fed to them and take appropriate steps to counter that with facts and evidence rather than beliefs and persuasions told to them over and over again until they think it is "truth". If we are afraid to listen to or consider those things that challenge our beliefs or views because they may make us uncomfortable or cause us to THINK, how can a person ever learn? My motto is always question everything...and I mean everything, and to THINK for ourselves...because if we do not, rest assured someone else will think for us and dictate to us a narrative that may be little more than pure BS.
  13. Thanks Bohica I agree with your warning bohica, and bottom line is that people kill each other, for whatever reason or no reason and certainly they will find a way with or without a weapon. Of course we are not talking about proper self defense measures to protect ourselves or others. We all should know guns do not kill, but the person pulling the trigger does. We do have to be careful of how people are labelled when it comes to "mental" disorders. PTSD, anxiety, depression are very much related to the effect of trauma on a persons brain. That trauma can be combat related, in which the person cannot digest the actions they took or what they saw on in the field. I have talked with enough military folk to know their thoughts about this and how some of the bravest struggle daily to cope because they never stopped being a human and feeling the effects of taking a life. Life itself, various moments can have long lasting effects on a person mental state. it is not a disorder, it is a human being reacting to something shocking or fearful, etc. So your warning is certainly valid, and these folks need help, not just given another label that some may try and use against them. But I do not think anyone can deny that this class of drugs has been implicated in influencing some peoples behavior. I have first hand knowledge at how certain "SSRI" anti-depressants can push some people over the edge, or give them a false sense of invincibility and increasing rage and violence. Drug makers already have warned about this as a side effect yet have done little to address it for 20 years now. Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, just those three come with quite the history of side effects, especially for those on them long term. This is not to say some of those drugs do not help some people. For sure they do, but many have had serious side effects that led them to doing things that otherwise they would have not considered. Here are some factoids that have linked some shooting related incidents that the perps involved were on certain medications. it is not as much about blaming the drugs as it is about their influence on the people documented below, and should not be, cannot be ignored. Bottom line is that it is PEOPLE who murder people...and just as alcohol can influence a persons personality so can certain psychotropic drugs that can push them deeper into making bad decisions. Austin, Texas – May 1, 2017: Kendrex J. White, 21, stabbed four people with a machete-like hunting knife at the University of Texas, killing one and wounding three. The stabbings occurred within a one-block area as the attacker “calmly walked around the plaza,” according to the chief of police. After he was arrested, White told police he did not remember the attack. The police department said that White had recently been involuntarily committed in another city, and county records showed that he had been arrested and charged with a DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) on April 4, 2017. When an officer spoke to him, White said he had taken two “happy pills,” listed as the antidepressant Zoloft. Tallahassee, Florida – November 20, 2014: 31-year-old Myron May, a Florida State University alum, opened fire in the school’s library, wounding three before he was shot and killed by police.

Shortly after this, his friends discovered the antipsychotic Seroquel among his prescriptions. Seattle, Washington – June 5, 2014: 26-year-old Aaron Ybarra opened fire with a shotgun at Seattle Pacific University, killing one student and wounding two others. Ybarra planned to kill as many people as possible and then kill himself. In 2012, Ybarra reported that he had been prescribed the antidepressant Prozac and antipsychotic Risperdal. A report from his counselor in December of 2013 said that he was taking Prozac at the time and planned to continue to meet with his psychiatrist and therapist as needed. His lawyer also said that Ybarra had a long history of mental health issues for which he was taking prescribed drugs for at the time of the shooting.

Helms had been taking drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and depression. Huntsville, Alabama – February 5, 2010: 15-year-old Hammad Memon shot and killed another Discover Middle School student Todd Brown. Memon had a history for being treated for ADHD and depression.

  14. Yes, and all the accusations of what would happen IF cannabis was legalized was all BS. Unemployment in some of those areas are at their lowest the last 3 years, no need to "stimulate" their economy in Colorado...they did it themselves by doing the right thing. Add to this, many folks are able to now get off of taking opioids and opiates for pain relief, this is huge, and yet does anyone hear of these success stories? Big pharma is not happy about these things...cannabis is taking money out of their pockets and government ALWAYS protects their pharma money interests and lobbyists. After 80 years of being demonized, people are finally waking up to the fact of how useful hemp, cannabis truly is...and who were the ones demonizing it all these decades? Textile firms, religious nuts, and pharma companies just to name a few, and in the process, taking away actual cures for disease from the people. Cannabis has been proven effective in epilepsy, cancer, pain relief, diabetic problems, psychosis, neurosis, not to mention CBD oil "cannabidiol" that the human body actually has receptors for CBD and its derivatives. We have been fooled by those in "authority", who are more intersted in protecting their own self interests and care not for helping people with a plant that can cloth them, heal them, create building material stronger than most, one acre of hemp can provide more paper products than 4 acres of trees, and it can return farmers back to making a profit by hemp farming, etc. Does anyone remember when farmers were forced to farm hemp back in the very early 1900's? Most do not, because it was pushed aside by big money interests and we all believed the propaganda, until we found out we were lied to AGAIN.
