The Dark Ages Live!
Many of these same people who tremble in fear of the changing nature would readily agree that the earth has experienced many ice ages, and periods of warming that would make life unsustainable for the human species. They would say they understand that this information is part of the historical record, yet they presently believe that man is now dictating the changes in the natural evolution of the planet -- that we are nature's god. What do they think would happen if the human species did not exist? (For those unclear: If the human species did not exist, nature would continue to change. for change is all that is assured.)
Perhaps fear is a natural state, just as natural as ignorance, and it would appear the two are probably very highly correlated.

Government By and For
A government by the governing for the governing exists to protect the prospering of the governing.
Which do you think we have at this moment? Which do you want?
More receive than work full-time
You want your party to win? You fool... Party loyalty is absurd. Seek truth, honesty...which you do not want to seek in Washington.

This Too Will POP
It is amazing that the economy is growing at a less than 3% rate, but the equities of companies doing business in this anemic economy are growing 1, 2 or 3 percent a day, regularly. Yeah, this is sustainable.
Haven't we been here before?
Thre Will Be No Default
No, Failure To Raise Debt Ceiling Won't Cause Default
The U.S. Debt Ceiling Fallacy: Agreement Or Not, There Will Be No Default
We offer these because in talking with fellow members of the citizenry who were generally informed, they were not aware of this information. They feared default.
How tragic your government wishes you to fear. Those in power do not want the consent of the governed as much as they desire the desperate fear of the governed.
Wikipedia Double Standard?
Wikipedia is supposed to be a source for useful information in real time, not information that will one day be useful in the future. In fact, do you think any link not of a governmental nature would be maintained for its future usability? And would it not benefit us all to have a source of information independent of governmental tantrums? Maintain your standard, Wikipedia, kill the dead links.
Fear the Shutdown!
Nice little opinion piece: Stubborn democrats escaping all the blame in shutdown
But we have some thins to say as well:
Has anyone noticed how the Federal Government is using the National Park System and its police (Weapon carrying, law enforcing police for parks!?) to inflict pain on the American citizenry? They are not the government's parks, they are OUR parks. Our use of our national parks should in no way be incumbent upon your permission or oversight. Get out of the way and let us use our parks. THEY ARE OUR PARKS!!!! A mountain needs the government for its beauty to be enjoyed? Do not look at the Grand Canyon without the government's approval, for the government created the beauty? Those who believe life's beauty flows from the loins of government are the tragedy of our sorrow.
"Shutdown! Shutdown! Shutdown!"
The quote we like to steal from renown philosopher e: Science does not answer questions, it creates better questions.
Great thinkers know and teach to question everything. Yes, EVERYTHING!
The Tipping Point Exists
The $11,976,279,000,000 in U.S. government debt held by the public on Sept. 30, 2013 was $5,668,968,000,000 more than the $6,307,311,000,000 in debt held by the public on Obama’s first inauguration day.
That is an increase of 89.879 percent—or approximately 90 percent. [Read]
Keep increasing at this rate and we will all see the tipping point...soon.
The poll data is clear and cuts across party lines: 92 percent of the public does not think it is right that Congress and their staff are letting the Obama administration exempt them from the costs of Obamacare. [Read]
The people in Washington, on the whole, are there to serve themselves, not the citizenry of the United States. Do you think the fact 92% of the people do not approve of their special treatment will dissuade them?
You should not find any of this acceptable.
And for those who thought this was a good idea and the massive, inefficient, profligate government was going to lower healthcare costs, consider: Obamacare Will Increase Health Spending By $7,450 For A Typical Family of Four
