| Political Talk|| Will conspiracy guys ever get credit for predictions? - Revelator on 5/24/13 at 8:09 am|
I was always leery of the gov., but since Bush 2 I've grown completely skeptical of everything they say or do. Things that were in the realm of conspiracies are now tangibly revealing themselves to be very real. Things like; DOJ buying massive rounds of ammo, droning US citizens, seizing people's ph...

I was listening to the WSJ report on the radio this morning, and reporter Greg Millman was speaking to the host in which he told a story of how his phone records were seized by the IRS soon after he did a story critical to the agency. Not only that, two secret service agents showed up at his home an...

We frequently get on politicians for lying, as we should, but aren't they simply a microcosm of society as a whole?
I work for a paper mill and one of our products is toilet paper. I've been there 11 years and seen the roll size progressively shrink. Yet, our packaging continues to uses phrases lik...

The terrorist shooter gets to collect his salary because he was about to be deployed to Afghanistan, but the victims can't receive their pay because the military wont classify this as a terrorist act, but workplace violence. What a great country to be a Muslim terrorist?!

all to facilitate one mans ego? Yes Obama is black, but this can't be the only reason so many are willing to sink an entire country to satisfy his whims?

Almost daily there seems to be new laws or rulings that fly in the face of logic and seem to be confusing at best. We can all list some of these laws and although I realize our perception of what is unjust or hypocritical will differ, I thought it would be interesting to list some of these contradic...

One bows in the end zone, publicly praises his savior and he is called a zealot. Told he should keep his religion private and not broadcast it, etc.
Collins comes out and tells everyone he is gay. Everybody embraces it. Give us more. What a hero!

After starting the thread yesterday about minority lifeguards being recruited for positions based mainly on race, it made me ponder some things. Is it acceptable to segregate or at the very least make it appear that certain races are excluded from particular activities based solely on race?

I've been tired of politicians voting in blocks and having a herd mentality for a long time now. On some issues, you already know which way each side will fall. And too many times, politicians are forced to vote for positions they aren't for just to follow the party line. Why can't they all just run...

I keep hearing this mantra," we'll if it doesn't affect me directly, I don't care what they do". How can one not realize that we are a sum of all the parts and the things done in a society either strengthens it, or tears it down little by little. " A little leaven, leavens the whole lump".
