Government Documents Label These 72 Types of Americans Potential Terrorists
Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the "end times" or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a "potential terrorist" according to official U.S. government documents.

Voters continue to believe Democrats have more of a plan for the future than Republicans do, but most again say neither party represents the public.
Busted! Bundy 'racist remarks' a rehash of a story from 2010:
This series is about how those in power have used Freud's theories to try and control the dangerous crowd in an age of mass democracy. Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, changed the perception of the human mind and its workings profoundly.

Here's a guy who's a little nervous but I give him full props. I hope that I could do so well~
Alex Jones Show Video: Cliven Bundy Responds To New York Times Racism Report - 4/24/14
A Minnesota couple is suing the Iowa City Police Department to return almost $50,000, arguing police wrongfully seized that cash. Kearnice Overton was driving with his four kids on I-80 when Iowa City police pulled him over for speeding. Police brought a K-9 unit and based on the dog giving a “silent indicator on the vehicle,” police searched Overton’s car. They found $48,000.
Drug sniffing dogs can have a very high false positive rate, i.e., they alert even when there are no drugs. Yet as the Institute for Justice demonstrated in an amicus brief for the U.S. Supreme Court, “There are countless examples of police seizing large sums of cash based on nothing more than a positive dog alert.” Plus, in Iowa, law enforcement can keep 100 percent of the proceeds from forfeited property, creating an immense incentive to police for profit.
In his TED talk "Moral Behavior of Animals," the primatologist Frans de Waal claims that morality, of any desirable kind, is based on the two pillars of Reciprocity and Empathy. He does not claim that the totality of morality is these two pillars, but rather that if you take these two pillars away, you don't have much with which to build a system of morality.
Frans de Wall then goes on to demonstrate that both pillars of morality are observed in animals, in an attempt to demonstrate the biological origins of morality. I am not so much interested, in this post, in discussing whether his thesis his correct, as in exploring how these two pillars of morality relate to capitalism.
Let's start with reciprocity. Reciprocity encompasses the concept of fairness, the tit-for-tat wherein a good action is rewarded by a good action and a bad action is punished by a bad action. Thus, if you help someone out, you expect the person to help you out sometime in the future. For example, we generally think of a gift as an act of giving with no obligations to the receiver. But that is not the case. To give a gift to someone is to make them indebted to you socially. Many aboriginal societies are based on a gift economy where social ties are secured with the giving of gifts. The longer the period until the gesture is returned, the stronger the social bond. The same is true in our culture. We all keep mental tabs about who gave us what, and who helped us out, so that we can repay them and free ourselves of the social bond. We do not like feeling indebted. Thus, a gift can be seen as the securing of a reciprocity debt.
Hope is still alive for justice in America! This is encouraging.

Like so many other favorite liberal issues, income inequality is seldom discussed in terms of the actual consequences of liberal policies. When you turn from eloquent rhetoric to hard facts, the hardest of those facts is that income inequality has actually increased during five years of Barack Obama's leftist policies.
This is not as surprising as some might think. When you make it unnecessary for many people to work, fewer people work. Unprecedented numbers of Americans are on the food stamp program. Unprecedented numbers are also living off government "disability" payments.
There is a sweeping array of other government subsidies, whether in money or in kind, which together allow many people to receive greater benefits than they could earn by working at low-skilled jobs. Is it surprising that the labor force participation rate is lower than it has been in decades?
