When did society stop respecting police

What has caused society to lose respect for law enforcement? With the innovation of smart phones, video recorders, youtube, liveleak, facebook,,,, etc, police activity can be videoed and shared worldwide in a matter of minutes.  The public can see what police have to deal with everyday.

Has the sharing of police activity on social media caused society become hostile to law enforcement?

I think so.

The police preform a job the general public do not understand.  Most of us do not see drug users daily, we do not see domestic violence victims daily, we do not deal with the  mentally ill daily.

Ever since the death of Michael Brown I have pondered why people get upset when police have to use force.  Last night I came across a video that got me to thinking even more about the police and society issue.

The following video is from the Hagerstown Police Department. This should of been a typical traffic accident, but things took a turn for the worse.

Democrat policy tell a lie until people believe it

When Hillary Clinton collapsed after leaving the September 11th memorial event, the media said:

She stumbled when taking a step.

Then it was her knees buckled.

Then it was she got too hot and collapsed from the heat.

Finally, it came out that Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.

So which is it?

The thing with telling the truth, one does not have to change their story when the facts are disputed.

Luckily someone was able to film Hillary collapsing and being drug into a van.  When you look at a breakdown of the video it is clear Hillary collapsing is nothing out of the ordinary.  The security detail acts like this is an everyday event.  One of the security personal, a bald headed guy, moved into position several seconds before Hillary collapses, as if he knew what was going to happen.

Democrats adopt republican policies

It is nice to see Democrats adopting republican policies.  Maybe democrats are finally coming around to a reasonable way of thinking.

What is really nice, liberal Democrats are not saying a single thing about the shift in democrat policy.  Maybe, just maybe, the far left is getting some common sense about them.

What exactly have the Democrats changed their minds on?

Building walls and requiring IDs to vote.

Fences and more fences

Not only did the Democratic National Convention have a fence around it, they also built a fence between the audience and the platform.

The two fences are symbolic of the three groups of people:

  • Outside the first wall – the illegal aliens.
  • Inside the first wall – the citizens and people who are in the United States legally.
  • On the platform behind two walls – the political elite.  These are the people who tell everyone else what to do, but are protected by security and two walls.

Thoughts on Trump and his immigration suggestions

When trump said he would block immigrants coming from nations with a history of terrorism, his words set off a crap storm that is still brewing.

Then there is the famous trump wall that he suggest be built between Mexico and the United States.

Why do people get so angry when someone says we need to secure our borders?

Those people who get mad at securing our borders:

Do they lock the doors of their house? Do they even have doors on their house? Maybe they have just a glass door so people can look straight into their home? Surely they do not have security systems on their homes. Do they lock their windows? Surely they do not have security cameras. If they took any measures to secure their home they would be a liberal hypocrite.

Liberal hypocrisy election 2016

Something nice about liberal democrats it is easy to spot their hypocrisy. All those rich liberals say to build bridges rather than walls, then they go back to their home that has a wall around it. Why does Hillary have a wall around her house?

Democrats oppose voter ID, but required ids at the Democratic National Convention.

Democrats oppose a wall between Mexico and the USA, but Democrats built a wall around the DNC. Then there was a wall between the speakers and the crowd.

More gun control, but rich liberals have armed body guards. Hillary has private bodyguards; while she is running for president she has the secret service.

If liberal democrats “really” believed what they preach, then let them practice what they preach. Hillary says one thing then does something else, as most liberals do. If hillary “really” believed what she preached, then no armed guards, no ids required at the DNC, no wall around her house, no walls at the DNC,,,, etc. If she is elected president she will tear down the wall around the white house?

Thoughts on the 2016 election

Elections are pretty hot and heavy.  The end result is each side digging in and slinging mud at each other.  This has been the status quo every since the first elections were held thousands of years ago.  What stands out in this election is how the press is ignoring the DNC leaked emails.  The whole rigging of the DNC primary so hillary would win has been brushed under the rug.

Where is the outrage at the DNC for plotting against Bernie?  The DNC has undermined the entire Republic form of government.  The people are not getting a fair and equal choice that should be expected from a republic form of government.

Is this the best we can do

At the root of the 2016 elections is the question, are Hillary and Trump the best we can do?  Are these two individuals the best our nation has to offer?

Ever since Nixon took office our wonderful nation has been in a downhill spiral.  Have you ever asked yourself why Nixon opened relations with China?  Have you ever asked yourself why shortly after Nixon visited China toy companies started having their products made there?

Have you asked yourself why Ronald Reagan gave tax breaks to the rich? Robert Reich in his documentary “Inequality for All” explains in great detail how tax breaks for the rich have contributed to income inequality.

Why would anyone vote for Hillary

Honest question, no trolling.

As a southern right wing, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-work for what you want republican I keep asking myself what has hillary done to deserve all the popularity?

She is better than trump is not an honest answer.

What legislation has Hillary introduced that became law that has benefited everyday working people?

Refuses to address radical Islam.

No United States flags at the DNC.

Plays on racial tensions.

Pro-murder of unborn children.

Pro-gun control.

Anyone remember the White Water investigations?

Benghazi.

Email server was hacked, FBI and justice department refuses to enforce the law.

Leaked DNC emails show donors will get positions in the federal government oversight committees.

If someone post a comment, and please do:

Please be exact, what has hillary done since she has held a public office?

What has she done that would make her qualified to even run for election?

2014 midterm elections

It is all over but the crying.  Democrats lost, Republicans won.

What amazes me is the total deflection by the Democrats.  As far as some of the Democrats are concerned, they lost because of some made up reason.  According to an article on HotAir, Obama blames his own party for their losses.  According to the article Democrats were fighting an uphill battle to start with.

Yes democrats were fighting an uphill battle, because of all the lying obama has done.  Where the help for college students?  Where is our health care that cost as much as a cell phone bill?  Where are the jobs?  Where is all the stuff we were promised?  They were lies, all lies.

The leader of the Democratic party is not even willing to take partial responsibility for the election results.  Maybe, just maybe, people walking out on obama should have tipped him off on how the election was going to end up.

Your own party members and your voters do not want to associate with you.  Then you blame your own party for losing the election?  Wow, just wow.

Good guy with a gun

Remember when The NRA said ‘Only Thing That Stops A Bad Guy With A Gun Is A Good Guy With A Gun’ and the left we bat crap crazy?

The shooting in Canada proves just that. A good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with minimal loss of life.

What is the left doing? They pretty much ignored how to stop mass shootings. Some terrorist starts shooting, have a few armed good guys around to put a swift end to the rampage.

Which would you rather have:

7 – 9 minute response time.

7 – 9 second response time

It is evident the leftist news sites are not interested in reporting the news. All they wish to do is push an agenda.

Illegal immigration nail in the coffin for obama

This flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda.  Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.

Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.

You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?

OBAMACARE Money for Nothing

For those of you old enough to remember Money for nothing by Dire Straits, here is a version singing about spreading the wealth and obamacare.

In short, while people were busy watching TV the nation was stole from under our noses.

What are we going to tell our kids and grandkids when they ask why they have to buy healthcare when other first world nations get healthcare supplemented by taxation.

Future generations will think of us like we think about our great great grandparents. What the hell were they thinking when the income tax passed? What the hell were we thinking when mandatory buying health insurance was passed?

Please stop the open carry movement

Guys and gals, please stop with the open carry movement.  You are not doing anything but scaring people.  Law enforcement is called to check yall out, tensions get high, it is just a matter of time before someone gets shot.

Leave your long gun at home where they belong.

The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  I understand that, trust me I understand.  Nobody is infringing on your right to bear arms.  There is a time and place for everything.  Carrying a rifle or shotgun into a store is not the time or place.

Every able-bodied male

The 2nd Amendment serves two purposes, protect the nation in times of war and to help with localized civil unrest.

Yes I know about watering the tree of liberty from time to time.  That is why we vote.  We water the tree of liberty with tears of defeat and not blood.

There is no reason to carry a rifle into a coffee shop.

There is no reason to carry a rifle into a shopping mall.

There is no reason to carry a rifle into a retail store.

There is no civil unrest.

There is no war on our streets.

If you want to shoot something, join the military.

Now for the love of GOD, please stop scaring people.

We need socialized higher education

What is the prohibitive factor slowing down progress? Besides greed.

Why do so few US citizens own their homes?

Why do we have widespread income inequality?

It all boils down to ease of access to higher education. Whether it is a skill trade such as welding and heavy equipment operation, or a professional such as being a doctor or lawyer, people need access to higher education.

A simple fix would be to socialize higher education. What the student pays would be based on their income and their parents income. For schools like Yale, Harvard, Brown, A&M,,, they would do a lottery system for applicants.

If a homeless person applies to Harvard and is drawn through the lottery, that person would attend school for free. That homeless person would be attending for free because the government would set the rates of the school.

No more profit drive higher education schools.

The patents registered to those schools would be licensed to students for free. This would ensure start-up companies have equal access to technology as already established companies.

Make professors and college workers federal employees. Their salary would be figured from the average income of their students. Professors would have a vested interested in how well the students are doing after they leave the school. If the students are not prepared for the real world, the professors pay will reflect that.

There would be no grants, no loans, no AA, no quotas,,, nothing but a balanced education for everyone.

No more rich parents buying their kids into the best colleges. Everyone will have a fair and equal access to higher education.

Without access to higher education the United States will continue to fall behind other first world nations.

For example, did you know more people in Romania, India, Russia and Poland own their homes than in the United States?

Romania leads the world in home ownership with 96.6%.

United States ranks 34th with only 65.2% owning their home.

SourceWikipedia List of countries by home ownership

Take a look at that list. More people in Bulgaria own their homes than in the United States. Somehow we are supposed to be a world leader? If we do not get more people into higher education, we are going to have the highest rate of homeless of any first world nation.

Our education system sucks.

A lot of it boils down to greed.

Lost spirit of freedom

During the battle of San Jacinto April 21, 1836 9 Texans died, compared to the 1,360 Mexicans who lost their lives. The fighting quickly went from rifles to hand-to-hand. As the Texans overwhelmed the Mexicans, the Mexicans fled into the swamps and marshes.

In the book The Raven: A Biography of Sam Houston, it is noted some of the Mexicans were screaming “Me no Alamo !” as Texans gave the Mexicans the same quarter that was shown at the Alamo and Goliad.

The battle only lasted about 18 minutes. But the slaughter continued for an hour or so after the main battle ended.

After Santa Anna was captured he was treated with the upmost respect by Sam Houston.

Sam was wounded during the battle and almost died from infection.

I feel that this kind of spirit is mostly dead. As Bain said in Dark Knight Rises, “victory has defeated you.” We have allowed ourselves to become weak and complacent.

Chances are the founding father would have revolted over an income tax, must less the federal reserve, gun control and various excessive taxation.

Americans have grown fat and lazy. We no longer care about freedom, but instead are content in our subjugation.

Remember the Boston Tea Party we learned about in school? How would the founding father have felt about all the taxes we have to pay now?

Property tax
School tax
Income tax
Fuel tax
Sales tax
Inheritance tax
And now we have to buy health insurance or pay a fine.

We need to pause for a minute and ask ourselves what this nation is coming to.

I George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Sam Houston were alive today, would they be happy with the way the nation turned out?

I suspect that yes, they would be happy about a lot of stuff. Jefferson was a proponent of education. Having a free public school system would probably make him very proud.

On the other hand, the amount of taxation we live under would have pissed the founding fathers off.

How is our current state any different than the serfdom in medieval Europe?

You either pay a fee to the lord (in this case the government) or you are kicked off the property. The concept of true property ownership is a thing of the past. The government has told us what we must pay every year to keep our property and to stay out of prison. We are supposed to call that freedom?

Where are the leaders like Sam Houston? Not as in armed revolt, but as in standing up to the government?

I think a lot of it boils down to the voters.

After the bank bailout my local federal representative was only opposed by a libertarian. Did the people of southeast Texas vote Kevin Brady out of office? Nope. Even though he voted for the bank bailout the people returned him to office.

I feel the people have been in a vicious cycle for the past 100+ years of returning people to office over and over.

We say we want change in Washington, but the same people are voted back in year after year. When someone steps forward and says they will bring about real change, such as the Libertarian Party, the people turn their back.

How are the people supposed to change the course of government when the same elected officials are returned to office decade after decade?
