Why don’t more nations follow the example set by Iceland and throw corrupt bankers (financial terrorist) in prison?
I did not know it until I watched this video, but the Federal Reserve protects bankers from certain types of criminal prosecution.
If there are no punishments for breaking the law, what is the deterrent? If bankers can make loans to companies they know are going to fail, then buy the company for pennies on the dollar, what is stopping them from rigging the market?
The more I learn about American banks and the federal reserve, the more I understand how rigged the system truly is. If you want the honest truth, the average working class family has no chance against the banks who can print money out of thin air.
Now that the last bomber has been caught alive, now what?
Since the bombers are mulsim, will there be a backlash against people from the middle east?
Will the public demand aid to the middle east stop?
Since one of the victims was chinese, how will this affect china-USA relations?
Can we expect to see more vigilante attacks on people from the middle east? Unlike nations in the middle east, here in the USA Islam is a minority. Instead of Muslims beating Christians up, Muslims will be the victims of vigilante attacks
In the middle east it seems muslims can inflict violence on all over religions with no fear of retaliation. But here in the USA things are opposite in middle east. If a muslim does some kind of attack, non-muslims take revenge on other muslims, and even people that are mistaken for muslims.
As I write this the original Red Dawn is playing on the Ecnore channel. As the movie plays I would like to write about how times have changed since the 1980s.
Chevy truck has a gun rack in the back window. This would have probably drawn a response from the FBI for a terrorist activity on school property. There was once a time when high school kids had guns in their vehicles so they could go hunting after school. But today, schools are gun free zones. And we wonder why crazy people are drawn to schools?
White man shooting black teacher, racist.
Kids riding in the back of a truck, which is now illegal.
Adult giving guns to a minor. Obvious example of terrible parenting.
Keeping a handgun in the glove box?
Pissing in a radiator probably voided the warranty.
After the kids reach the wilderness there is a discussion about what their parents would want. today, it is not what the parent wants, but what the government wants.
Shooting a deer to survive? I hope they had a valid hunting license.
How the hell did obama get elected? Is romney the best the republican party can offer? My opinion on the 2012 elections, the average american is a idiot. the majority of the people out there have no business voting, much less picking our elected officials.
When the people keep voting the same idiots into office year after year, nothing is going to change.
If the people want real change, first they have to change the way they vote.
When a republic breaks, its not the government that breaks, its the people that are broken. The way we vote our elected officials into office (the two party system) is broken.
You got to restaurant A, the service is lousy and the food is terrible.
You decide to go to restaurant B, the service is lousy and the food is terrible just like A.
Do you go back to A, or do you give C and D a try?
With voters logic, you keep going between A and B hoping things get better, while ignoring those new places down the road C and D.
The average American voter is too stupid to vote third party. How are we supposed to fix the nation when the same two parties are voted into office over and over?
In this country, there is still a presumption of innocence that requires a jury to convict someone of a crime.
Mr. Garcia, I respectfully disagree. None U.S. citizens are not entitled to the same rights as U.S. citizens. This has been proven time and time again with Guantanamo Bay.
On one hand we argue people inside the U.S. deserve equal rights – innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
On the other hand, we detain people with no due process, no access to legal counsel, and then use torture on the people being detained. Where are the equal rights for the people being detained at Guantanamo Bay?
Where was the due process for Abdulrahman al-Awlaki? For those of you not familiar with Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, he was a U.S. citizen who was killed by a drone attack.
As most of us have forgotten, on Feburary 19th, 1942 Executive Order 9066 signed by franklin d. roosevelt allowed Japanese-Americans to be detained without due process.
Never forget, never again.
The problem is, it can happen again. All the US government has to do is point at someone, say they are a terrorist, and that person can be detained forever without due process. By due process, I mean having their day in court. There is no formal charges, no hearing for bail,,, no nothing. the person is arrested, sent off to a camp, and never heard from again.
Why has the US government granted itself the authority to detain people without due process. I don’t know which one is more dangerous to national stability, an overzealous government, or foreign enemies.
Why would the government fear due process? Why not give the person their day in court?
During the Cold War, we could point and Russia and say “they are the enemy”. Today, it sees the US government points at everyone and says “they are the enemy”.
When the founding fathers created this great nation, they knew what they did not want to become. Due to the atrocities committed upon the 13 colonies by the king of England, the founding fathers knew what an oppressive government was. From that starting point, a system of checks and balances were put into place to ensure the rights of the people would be protected.
Executive Order 9066 signed by franklin d. roosevelt was challenged in court. The supreme court failed to protect the people from an overzealous government. That is what the founding fathers did not want. When the system of balances fails to protect the people, the people can only blame themselves. When a Republic fails, its due to an uneducated voting populace.
While the people blindly voted to same two parties into office, those two parties conspired to strip the people of the rights. While the people slept, the US government declared war on its own citizens.
