Quote from: Solar on August 25, 2017, 12:34:11 AMYou didn't lock your doors, left you keys in the c ar, let the kids take off for the entire day (by themselves. Shudder)...What happened, seriously, was it media glorifying ever violent story, was is a lack of law enforcement, or both?Or is society really so depraved today, that we expect someone to violate our personal sanctuaries?Honestly, it's akin to the so called race issue, nothing has changed, the only change is a media myopically focusing on it to further the Marxist plan to divide the nation.I think the only thing to change, is trust of our fellow man.Like Reagan said, "Trust, but verify", so let's build a fuckin Southern Wall so we can trust South Americans for the good and decent neighbors they've always been.A wall is nothing more than a lock on the front door.
QuoteBehind the Trumpian slogan "America First" lay a conviction that, with the Cold War over and the real ideological nation, the USSR, shattered into pieces along ethnic lines, it was time for America to come home.Contra the neocons, traditionalists argued that, while America was uniquely great, the nation was united by faith, culture, language, history, heroes, holidays, mores, manners, customs and traditions. A common feature of Americans, black and white, was pride in belonging to a people that had achieved so much.The insight attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville – "America is great because she is good, and if America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great" – was a belief shared by almost all.
Quote from: Billy's bayonet on August 25, 2017, 03:23:38 AMUnlocked doors, key's left in cars and kids playing anywhere and everywhere without fear of being kidnapped, run over, molested, robbed, beaten, run over by a drunk driver comes down to one thing: CRIMEMost of the crime in the USA is committed by Foreign Nationals and Minorities. None wants to call it out for fear of being labled with the all damning mark of Caine the much dreaded "RACIST" tag. As an aside, much crime goes UNREPORTED, so actual statistics in many catagories are rather meaningless.Having spent all of my adult life in either Law Enforcement or Security I can tell you one thing is responsible;DRUGS.Simply put, most drugs are smuggled into this country by an elaborate network of foreign national criminal syndicates and distributed mainly in our inner cities targeting said minorities and then spread to the adjoining suburbs as criminal networks branch out. Interesting to note that there seems to be surging opioid epidemics in most urban areas and city officials are in a dither as to what to do about it.It doesn't take a sherlock Holmes to figure out the correlation between open borders and increased drug trafficking from source countries where the Poppy (and cocaine) grow.
Quote from: Hoofer on August 26, 2017, 12:15:49 AMThen we have the Libertarians who say legalize drugs and the problem goes away, plus you can TAX it too!!!After these drugs "rewire the brain" so there is no conscience, guilt or compunction to obey the law, what then with a nation of lawless, mind drugged idiots?Sometimes, the ISIS method of enforcing morality, almost makes more sense than Ron & Rand Paul - and aren't they Doctors???
Quote from: Solar on August 26, 2017, 12:36:40 AMPeople like to think of themselves as "enlightened and evolved" but the truth is, those who came before us, were just as smart, if not more so, than today's average dolt on the street, and even back then, they had morality laws for a reason, to sustain a cohesive and functioning society.In truth,m that's all law is, a societal need to control behavior of the masses.It proves the very existence and intrusion of Marxism into our very culture, For Marxism can't exist under God's law, which is why the first thing they did, was to fool the children, confuse them into believing in nothing at all.I don't want to derail this into a religion thread, but the absence of faith is the breeding ground for evil to take hold, as in Marxism.Freedom be damned along with your religion!Libs just can't make the connection....
Quote from: Hoofer on August 26, 2017, 11:59:10 PMTV has done more to dumb down society than enlighten it... speaking of controlling the masses!How as the Constitution and all the writings of the founding fathers so easily understood 200 years ago, yet, today... with all the MSM help, it takes a dictionary to get the basic grasp of what's written, and liberals *still* can't figure out the simplest of text?Remember when people still read & took the time to understand? Nope, not in my lifetime. It's hard to find an individual who can read and write past a 6th grade level (myself included).
Quote from: JasonTarmon on August 27, 2017, 06:29:49 AMI admit I have some sympathy for this idea. It would eliminate the market for most of organized crime and leave us with only the druggie issue which we have anyway.The main problem I see with it is this absurd notion people have that legal = good/moral. With proper social pressure you could hypothetically stave that off. It is definitely not a solution but it does seem a step in the right direction.
Quote from: s3779m on August 27, 2017, 07:04:18 AM Take a look at the underground selling of plain cigarettes in New York, taxes made it profitable to sell them illegally.. Problem with the government in charge of anything will be all the taxes that will be put on the drugs, leaving the door wide open for the cartel to undercut the government price. Then there is the problem with the wide range of drugs. I can not see crack or meth becoming legal nor should it be, there are several drugs that do so much harm that it is not an absurd notion that they are illegal, but the cartel will continue to sell it and there will be enough people willing to buy it. Legalizing a few recreational drugs will not put the cartel out of business.
Quote from: Solar on August 27, 2017, 09:10:26 AMYeah, which goes full circle in the LIBertarian argument of getting govt out of personal lives.My belief is that govt is like an overprotective parent, you simply can't protect the child from their own stupidity unless they first get hurt and figure it out for themselves.This isn't a lack of law problem, this is a cultural issue, one where shame is removed from the equation, shaming someone for bad behavior, such as dressing like the opposite sex, bestiality etc, all of these are now PC protected as 'Just another lifestyle" bull shit. No, if we're going to make any progress, it starts with us as individuals, rejecting bad behavior when it happens, not going to movies the left produces glorifying bad behavior, speaking up when it happens in front of us.But that's just me, I always speak my mind in opposition to all anti American culture.
Quote from: taxed on August 28, 2017, 06:48:03 AMExactly. I found out one of my good friends is now a heroin addict (which seems to be a big problem right now). I told him I just can't hang around him any longer and have been avoiding his calls. He knows I have no judgement of him doing that, but I do have judgement that he is ruining his life, upsetting others, and just acting like an idiot. If I know you're on drugs, then you aren't in control because somehow I know about it. If you're very productive, functioning member of society and completely have your shit together and one day you say "I've been a heroin addict for about 30 years", I really wouldn't care. However, 99.99999999999999% of the time that's not the case.In the case of my friend, his perception of things just got odd and would obsess about stuff like someone paying him back $5 bucks and stuff like that.I guess to say another way, I care more about you behave and not what you put in your body.
