22 hurt in mass stabbing at US school
A student stabs or slashes 22 others during a bloody 30-minute rampage at a US high school.
So the question begs should we ban knifes now? The point of matter of why I am posting this is to say that you cannot stop the insane. The same goes for China (more) or the UK. (more). It does not matter where you ban the guns the insane with always find new and creative ways to kill or harm in multiply numbers. I leave you with this thought, prohibition often lead to new and creative ways of getting around the prohibited item which was often more dangerous or worse than item that was banned. Would you really prefer killers coming up with new ways to kill in mass like the China stabbings where you are defenseless against it and the police can do nothing. I understand this sounds like a false Dichotomy in a way but, to me I would rather protect my self than whimper in a corner and hand to hand self defense classes will only protect you to a point.

He showed us several clips of the tv show Newsroom and I was wondering, how are some states just sliding by with blatantly religious oriented laws? I was Texan by birth and had we stayed there instead of moving to NY, it would be 100% okay to expel my gay brother from school, refuse to give him resources, etc, etc, when doing such things would be a blatant display of prejudice.
I am also a Texan and live in the South :)
How are some states sliding by with doing unconstitutional things? How does the federal government slide by with doing unconstitutional things?
I’m going to say this a little passionately…
BECAUSE AMERICANS AS A WHOLE DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR GOVERNMENT OR WHAT IT DOES. THEY ARE TOTALLY FINE WITH NOT VOTING OR PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT THEIR REPRESENTATIVES ARE DOING OR WHAT POLICIES ARE BEING PASSED. THE PEOPLE LET THE GOVERNMENT DO ITS OWN THING AND THEY SURE AS HECK DON’T GET INVOLVED WITH CALLING POLITICIANS OUT ON DOING THINGS CONTRARY TO THE CONSTITUTION.
James Madison said in Federalist #51: “In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government…”
IT IS THE PEOPLE’S JOB TO KEEP THEIR GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE— PEOPLE ELECT A GOVERNMENT TO RULE OVER THEM SO THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS ALSO ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE.
BUT WE KEEP ELECTING THE SAME ABUSIVE OFFICIALS AND WE CONTINUE THE SAME IGNORANCE OF WHAT IS GOING ON OUR STATES AND IN D.C. AND THEN WONDER WHY SO MANY THINGS ARE GOING AWRY.
WHEN PEOPLE DO NOT KEEP THEIR GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE (I.E. VOTING, CONTACTING THEIR REPRESENTATIVES, PROTESTING, ETC.), THE GOVERNMENT CAN AND WILL ABUSE ITS RESPONSIBILITIES.
Facebook conducted secret psychology experiment on users' emotions - Telegraph
Facebook has conducted a secret massive psychology experiment on its users to find out how they respond to positive and negative messages - without telling participants
This is why I have few friends on and rarely get on, facebook, we need to be aware of emotional manipulation, even if you have to cold, even if you have to be cynical look into the subject deeper than the base level of tears and whimpering. We have forgotten to ask questions and in this we listen more to emotion than reason.

This looks like a scene out of movies. I mean really I dont watch many movies, but from what I can remember in seeing ultra violet (yes I know, terrible movie) or aeon flux. This seems eerily familiar strapped down, no way out, harsh methods and no real consent or choice. Just the illusion of choice.

Police riot training in fake Kent town - in pictures
The Metropolitan Police Specialist Training Centre in Gravesend, where officers are trained in various forms of public disorder and firearm use
Just on a side note here, I decided to add a little proof that this worrisome emergence of a possible police state, isn’t just a occurrence in the USA.
Something that does make me angry is these governments can spend hundreds of thousands to millions of taxpayer dollars making urban warfare training centers in both the US (Virginia, There is a even post from the US army main site to confirm that there is indeed an urban area and it is for Asymmetric warfare training ) and now the UK. You are telling me that new cities can be built for training purposes, but there’s not enough money to fix roads, fix housing, make more efficient upgrades to quality of water, power and living standards, but fake cities or urban warfare training centers can be built. Try to justify it all you want, however the fact these are being built now, not only in the US, but in other countries raises some eyebrows at least.
