Comments on: ‘Fast and Furious': Has America’s basic building block become the posse? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/05/03/fast-and-furious-has-americas-basic-building-block-become-the-posse/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: AlkalineState http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/05/03/fast-and-furious-has-americas-basic-building-block-become-the-posse/#comment-1037242 Wed, 06 May 2015 16:08:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=40109#comment-1037242 I agree America is on the decline. It’s a result of 50 years of failed conservative policies, and an ever-expanding privatization of federal government, promoted by the bi-factional ruling coalition of the two major parties.

They’re not. Have you been to rural America? Actual rurual America (not suburban Portland)? It’s dying. Drive through South Dakota some time, Western Nebraska, Kansas, rural Oklahoma.

The people there are moving into nearby cities. The smallest farm towns are dead and dying. Probably for the better. Those places were always bleak.

When conservatives point out that this time, a time before the War on Poverty, Before the Department of Education, before the Civil Rights Act, was actually better, we’re called racists, luddites, anti-science, etc.

I agree America is on the decline. It’s a result of 50 years of failed liberal policies, and an ever-expanding federal government, promoted by the bi-factional ruling coalition of the two major parties.

Either all that or these movies are aimed at teenage boys who travel in packs and enjoy watching stuff explode.

Given that most of the entertainment soaked populace is now unable to differentiate between fantasy and reality (Brian Williams), more violent car wrecks (they aren’t accidents) will result.

Every fool “must have a gun to defend self, family, flag, apple pie etc. Common appeal to bottom by pols is “Fed Gov wants your guns, fed takeover of law and complete idiots in TX want to track “Army Maneuver’s as not a sneak plan to take over TZ by feds, etc. These are not the actions of responsible, intelligent citizens, rather the prancing about of what is best described as extremest mini-mobs.

For those that kiss off movies and radio, www as “nut cakes” might be closer to truth then they know. USA basic education systems have failed u for decades,now starting show how easy it is for money to buy elections as well as how easy to divide nation.

We have yet to find much elected or leadership, state or federal that seems to honestly represent “other 97%”. F&F is not to distant from the reality many would impose on all or try to pull off it they felt they could. Sadly most of population is simply to dumb to note their and others reality, or question why 3% own/control 90% of wealth. We stopped educating on money-math, history, government or even basic home economics as to healthy living. We have assure all that “wars are OK, as you will not go, makes it much easier on military-industrial to spend more then next 10 nations combined. Wages are same as entry level’s 15 years ago for most, yet WS is at record levels, most citizens cannot afford to use their HC.

F&F a fable, a fun thing to watch, well read USA/world, reread the article. then think about it. F&F is slowly creeping into a lot of folks reality, might just be that USA “Golden Age” was after WW2, when we educated nation via GI Bill and lead the world. Now we simply are for sale to the world, more so China, Sadly hard data provides most feel their kids will not be as well off as they, first time ever. F&F a fantsy, maybe, for now.Doubt it, ask any NRA memeber

When law enforcement is getting overrun by thugs on the streets burning buildings and their elected officials are passively condoning it as their way of enacting free speech or who cities fold under the weight of unions, lack of water access, taxes or _____ fill-in the blank.

The media fuels the fires of the negative since that’s what sells. The more riots, the bigger the rating, the bigger the ad profits.

I’m not saying that smaller cites are perfect but at least in our state we have no racial divides or tensions, relatively low crime and if you want a job then there is usually something you can find… even if its manual labor… and still make it by.

My vote is to let all the criminals and entitled folks stay in the cities and fight it out. If you are looking to raise a family, don’t -have to- be rich but enjoy working, then move out and get that piece of quality you are missing in you life.

Oh, and remember when you read or see articles on the news that there is no “news” left in the world… its all opinion slanted to sell you an emotional response that in turn raises their ratings or gets the official they want elected.
