Now you know why God told the Israelites to go into their land and kill them all and take NOTHING that they owned. The stench of their evil was even on their belongings!
Why is the guy wearing a head/face cover. If he is so sure what he is doing is righteous, he should want the whole world to know who he is. Unless he's AFRAID of retribution. I thought Islamists LOVED to die for Allah. Big hypocritical pansyass!
Because he's blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.
The problem is when government turns political issues into crimes. If you have a rapist on the lose or someone holds up a gas station and murders the attendant, that is a real crime where one person has DIRECTLY injured another person and interfered with that persons life and liberty. Violence in such situations is warranted. What happens with drug raids is that government is using violence to settle what is essentially a political issue and one where the people are widely divided, at that. In Nazi Germany and the old USSR, government would incarcerate and even execute people for political differences. We in the West were highly critical of this type of tyranny and we understood that it was wrong. We have lost sight of that and no longer understand the difference between political differences and real crimes. Today, people think whatever the government says is a crime, is a crime whether it is or not ...just like the Nazis and the Communists. We have been brain washed into believing everything the politicians tell us.
This makes me so angry I'd like to scratch somebody's eyes out. The people of this country had better wake up and realize that this "war" on drugs is a war on all of us. It is not just drug dealers and the underbelly of society who are targets. We ALL are targets. Any one of us could lose our child, our spouse or even our own lives if someone made a false accusation against us. Cops shoot first and ask questions later when it comes to the WoD's. Drugs and their use are a POLITICAL issue. It is an issue that government uses to gain more power. It is NOT something that "we the people" have agreed upon. Many respectable people within our society disagree about drugs. Violence should only be used when dealing with what are called "torts" in the legal profession. That means crimes that have been committed where one person DIRECTLY injures another. Cases where society is supposedly "injured" indirectly by someone's actions are always political and people always disagree. Violence by police where political issues are concerned makes our government no better than Nazi Germany or the old USSR. People were killed for political reasons there too.

Petty Annoyances

Funny: However, Mr. Williams hits on one of my annoyances when he uses the term "dial" when referring to making a telephone call. No one "dials" anymore. What he really means is "press". While we're on telephone etiquette, I don't like people asking me to "call". I get a picture of someone with hands cupped around their mouth screaming at me. I don't ask people to "call" me. I ask them to "phone" me. That way there is no misunderstanding.
"The VA Health Scandal Is about Government Incompetence, not Inadequate Funding" As is the dismal academic performance of many in our public schools. Liberals always claim they could do better with more money, but that is just a scam. The more money we give them, the more they waste. Government can never do as well as private industry.
AMEN!
LIBERALS.
Took the words right out of my mouth. I have a new respect for that state!
