    The one world government in which literally every move you make is tracked and recorded is being set up. The best way to understand the ramifications of this is to read a good book like THE COMING ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON by pastor David Jeremiah. One cannot really appreciate what is taking place here until one sees that all this was foretold far far in the past. When one sees the jigsaw puzzle pieces falling perfectly into place to reveal things foretold thousands of years before this technology existed, one can know what to expect, and how to prepare for it.

    I have just got to stop concerning myself with all this crap. None of us are doing anything about it other than bitching. The douche bags that perpetrate this crap can't or won't be voted out of office. Until the shooting starts we are screwed. And then we are screwed.

    When you're on your death bed, just remember that it was us -- the shameless Baby Boomer generation -- who stood by and let all this happen.

    I had to disengage from this subject from the standpoint of believing anything I would ever say or do would stop the onward march of despotism and the willingness of my fellow Americans to accept it. It was making me bitter and depressed. When I finally accepted that what I saw taking place was part of history that had been foretold I changed my outlook from an activist to a historian, an observer. That allowed me to still engage the subject, still participate, but not be eaten up by it.

    We are living in a fascinating age. We can watch changes taking place that require technology that couldn't have even been imagined back when John wrote in Revelation that one would not be able to buy or sell unless one accepted a "mark", probably better recognized as a "signing on to a system". I was aware of that prophecy back in '70 when I graduated high school and even as recently as that, the technology that could allow that kind of control was unheard of. Today it is 100% in place and in use every day. The only part that isn't commonly used is the implementation of the cell phone for cashless transfers between digital accounts, and the forced implementation of that cashless system which, unless you have signed on to that system you will not be able to engage in any kind of commerce because you won't be able to access the system. Those who barter will be hunted down and given a choice. Sign on or die.
    Does believing any of this make me happy? Hell no, but it does make it comprehensible, and that alone is worth much in the peace of mind department.

    I well remember getting smacked upside the head from quite a few people here when I opposed the Patriot Act in 2001 because it circumvented the Fourth and Fifth Amendment protections of the Bill of Rights. I predicted that eventually there would be a president who would unleash it against ordinary citizens, not just terror suspects. Those who got on my case were claiming I was helping the terrorists win. Well the chickens have come home to roost, and frankly, our government is a bigger threat to the vast majority of citizens than the terrorists ever were.

    Brian said, "Our government is a bigger threat to the vast majority of citizens than the terrorists ever were."

    Anybody who thinks that statement is shrill paranoia is not paying close attention to what the government is doing, does not understand the fundamental principles America was founded upon, or both.

    Brian is exactly correct.

    The problem with the Patriot act was that those in favor thought it would just be used to track those know or believed to be a national security threat!I.E. Muslim extremist and bad guys! Bad idea!!!! Now that the left wing socialist are in power they use it to go after ANYONE who they see as a threat to their left wing socialist agenda and will CONTINUE to do so! A lot of people didn't think this one through!

    Perhaps slide action missed this in the article bigdog posted.


    " The collection of communications logs — or calling “metadata” — is believed to be a major component of the Bush administration’s program of surveillance that took place without court orders. The newly disclosed order raised the question of whether the government continued that type of information collection by bringing it under the Patriot Act. "

    Liberals didn't start this.

    Yes, we were. And by "we" I mean the three of us who actually read the Patriot Act.
