+4Dear Hillary, I really hope you do not become the first female president. I write this not because I am some crazy, right-wing, anti-feminist conspirator; I hope you are not our first female president because it would be a disgrace to that title and a disgrace to all of the young women in our country who aspire to actually do some good for our nation. Many people believe you are the best candidate for the position because you have been doing this political thing for a while—but when was the last time that you were able to relate to the common American? You grew up in the rich white suburbs of Chicago as a young child and attended Yale. You then went on to ride Bill’s coattails all the way to your Senate seat as a former First Lady. Any true feminist would look at you and see that you are a fraud. You get on your soapbox and claim that every woman who is a victim of sexual assault should be heard—but what about Juanita Broaddrick? Carolyn Moffet? Paula Corbin? Sara Allen-James? Christy Zercher? Kathleen Willey? Monica Lewinsky? All women who were sexually harassed or exploited by your husband. More

-7If you value your life, your family, your future, your grandchildren’s futures, being an American and being able to ‘live the American Dream‘…then please take the time to read what I have to say. Have we long forgotten what the Declaration of Independence states? What it stands for and why it was written? "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolution, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions...etc." (http:www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html) This Independence Day, July 4th, 2014 remember "..it is their (the People's) right, it is their (The People's) duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their (The People's) future security." The People; meaning You, me, all American Citizens!! Let us come together as American Citizens - men & women, rich & poor, Caucasian & African & every beautiful race in between inhabiting this great nation, not as Democrats or Republicans -- to abolish the current government and institute a new, in touch with society, once again regulated and respected government!! As it is our Right and our Duty to do so!! As Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "...God forbid we should ever be 20. years without such a rebellion. The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independent 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure." -Thomas Jefferson Nov. 13, 1787 (http:www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/tree-liberty-quotation) We are long over do my fellow Americans. We need to get out of this mindset that we can't do anything about what is going on in our nation. Need we be reminded that our government is a government of the people, by the people, for the people? I know I do not need to point out the problems with today’s government, one only has to turn on the news or do a brief internet search if they wish to inform themselves. I know I probably shouldn’t remind you that we, as a nation, are but a joke to the rest of the world now. I am not going to discuss the problems with the POTUS, for he is merely a fraction of the issue. I’m sure you’ve all heard the quote by Mark Twain, “Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.” Pretty accurate as they get quite full of shit. Not to mention they have been in their position so long they can no longer even relate to 99% of the rest of the American population. They have no empathy for how we live, how hard we work, how much time we give up, how much of our lives we waste working to be able to feed, shelter, and clothe ourselves just to live for the next day to do it all over again!! I can’t be the only one who feels like this isn’t what we’re supposed to be doing as humans. Things need to change, and they’re not going to change by themselves. We the people need to address this once and for all, we the people need to come together as a people who are tired of the ignorance & abuse shown by the government. We have so many men and women willing to serve and fight in different countries, why can’t we at home find the balls to finally do something for our country?! We are the citizens, we are the courts, we are the judges, we are the employers, let them be remembered. This Independence Day marks our 238th birthday as an Independent nation. Let us celebrate it by joining together in Washington D.C. for a sit in. Bring food, water, tents, reading material, music, anything that will allow you to be comfortable as we sit and peacefully force ourselves to be heard once and for all. If you are worried about your job, remind your boss and everyone you work with that what you are doing IS THE MOST IMPORTANT, MOST AMERICAN, and MOST PATRIOTIC duty of all American people! This HAS to happen! We can no long rely on their “checks and balances.” So, please share this. Do something for your country. Be a part of something bigger than you. Be a part of the change. Thank you all for taking the time to read this. I sincerely hope you understand how important this is. From one pissed off patriotic American More

-1Let me begin by saying that i'm completely unsure about the origin of the prevailing attitude of self-righteousness, that has made its home in the minds of, at one time, a compassionate and understanding people. Not only are we ignoring the problems, pain, and suffering of poverty, unemployment, and starvation, but now it seems that it has become fashionable to belittle and degrade the poor as well. Facts are also facts, and i know more than few people who, had it not been for the system that they now want to deny others access to, they would not be here today. The percentage that will agree is miniscule at best, but right is right and we all know whats right in our heart of hearts. Beginning around 1620, a ship full of homeless people, fleeing from oppression, poverty, and the tyrannical rule of an elitist government, and economical system, landed here in north america. The rich had the poor doing all the work, but kept the majority of the money so the poor got tired of it and left, and came here. Of course they brought that same attitude with them, for when they got here they eventually took the land from the people who already lived here, and started their own little oppressive country. However, after MUCH bloodshed, mainly by the lesser equipped individuals, we eventually reached a point where things had fairly evened out,not completely, but as close as we had ever been, before, or since. According to all the polls that i could find on the net, the decades of the sixties and seventies are generally considered to be the best, and most balanced time in american history. There was a thriving middle class, a fulcrum if you will, between the rich and the poor. Growth in music and art. Lessons of war were actually being learned, and people were at least TRYING to care about each other, free love and all that. Health care was affordable, more so than it is today. There was food and jobs, people cared about their planet,(their home), and they didn't seem to mind sharing with their fellow man because there was plenty to go around, at least it appeared that way. We even had people that took up the call of unity, Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, to name just a few. Of course, as in every time period, there were dark spots, but they were fewer and and father between than they are today. That brings us to now. Today are many things going on in this country that are not only being swept under the rug, they are being celebrated. The, at one time, balanced economy, is in complete turmoil, due mostly to the fulcrum being broken. The middle class is becoming all but non-existent. Therefor money is harder to get, and even harder to keep. The social security system, put in place to protect us in our old age, is being used to pay bills in the present, thereby eliminating our future nest egg. There are 3.5 million homeless people on the streets, and 39% of that total are children under the working age( so when I hear people say "homeless people need to get a job it really chaps my ass (pardon my english) because a third of them are kids.). Eighty percent of that total, which hads risen since the most recent posting of numbers, live in inner cities, and are regularly, figuratively spat upon be their fellow citizens who now want to make it harder for these people,( again a third of them kids), to get food, money, or medical care, in affect killing their fellow countrymen. The remaining remnants of middle class families, weather they realize it or not, are but one lost job away from joining the homeless ranks. A far cry from the two before mentioned decades. Our government has put us in debt, to the tune of over 16 trillion dollars, and everybody thinks its one guy doing that. It now costs as much, in gas, to get to work in a month as it does to pay your rent. The people are being placated to these issues by technology, which is not only helping to sever the bonds of human contact, but hypnotizing us into a fantasy land, crafted by those with the money so that we don't see the devastation that our indifference is causing. Global warming, overpopulated prisons, uneducated children, false profits, and a citizen base, so focused on keeping their own head above water, that they push the heads of other, less fortunate people under. Unfortunately this is today's America. Now i could go on presenting facts that point to the steady and seemingly irreversible decline of America, however i would rather point in the direction of what can be done to solve this. The fact is, weather you believe it or not, there is only one way out. TOGETHER. If we have two dollars, give one to your neighbor. Sharing and caring. Those who have made it to the top need to reach down and give a hand to those who haven't yet. Regardless of your personal feelings of that person. We are all the same family . Children under the same god. No man left behind. No matter what. Everybody makes excuses for why they don't care about about their fellow man, he doesn't work hard enough, she's not smart enough, they aren't attractive enough, lazy, ignorant, unrefined, not in my league, to tall, to short, not the right color, not a member of this country, it all boils down to one thing, those who think they are better, trying to exile those who aren't, because they fear being one of the outcasts. The fact is we all ignorant. ignorant to this one thing. Throughout history, governments and rulers have used the propaganda of the class war to keep people fighting among themselves while they sit in their thrones, laughing at our stupidity. We are all gods children, and that fact alone entitles us to everything on this planet. Life is not a race to the finish, with most stuff. It's a walk through the park, hand in hand together. Because believe this, if we don't do it together, none of us will make it at all. If we continue this line of thinking there will be nothing to leave to those children and grandchildren that we all say we are trying to protect. History has proven this time, and time, again. When you finally before your maker, and he asks you what you did with your life, and you tell him, I got a house and two cars, made lots of money, and bought all kinds of stuff. He's going to you, what about your brothers and sisters.

-1IS THE WORD ''NIGGA/NEGRO'' RACIST AND MY OPINION ON THE WORD No, I think it depends on the content in which the word is being used...If You get a person saying it to his friends just joking around and that's all it is...and As long as they don't get too comfortable with using it and start saying to to everyone they meet then it shouldn't be a problem , because if you do that then your just plain dumb anyway Lool these people get knocked out before they even finish saying the word if they say it to the wrong people lool But on the other hand the more people do get used to it and think of it as being cool , the less racist and offensive it gets ,because lets be real unless u over the age of 45 you aint offended, too just feel its disrespect and the further we get from the racist age which has passed in the mid 90's then the less offence the word should be.Its only common sense , Your grandchildren aint going to give a fuck about what their great great grandfather was called back in there day and that it was actually offensive...Its Too long ago I doubt any of you motherfuckers give a fuck about whether your great great grandfather was offended by a particular word... because you don't even know this man lool and yeah it might be your family and still people do get emotional about it but all I can say is there is power in the words...huge Power within the everyday words people use.But would there be power if people didn't get offended about stuff that happened ages ago. I mean would you get offended if someone dissed your ex from 20 years ago ? No, because in order for u to get over those negative feelings u let go of that bitch...Why ? Because its useless since its over and it don't mean shit. And soon the people talking shit bout your ex will stop because its useless and they aint getting no emotions from you. Let me give you another example...As A kid if you ever had a bully or someone annoying you or bothering you (am talking about anything irritating.) and you would get pissed about it, the same person annoying the fuck out of u will love it , they will enjoy it and carry on. But your father or mother gives u advice and says ''forget about this kid he's just looking for shit to do ... Because he aint got anything else to do he bothers u ... And u know why because u get offended/pissed , you need to ignore him or just laugh about it. In time he will get bored and stop'' You try this method and it works. The same principle applys to this word... If you truly want the racism of this word erase it will go if people just forget bout the word and laugh about it. Am not saying there will be no more racism because there will always be racism and at this time of my life I truly do not have the intelligence to know weather we can get rid of it or not ... But the hurtful and racist pain which is given off by the word will erase.And if you don't believe me let me give you a example... And if you truly do put your self in this persons shoes you will understand... Allright your an mature intelligent adult black male and your in the supermarket and you are doing well with your life , you pull up in your new car , you look good , your dressed well , you smell good , you have a gorgeous wife by your side. Your doing very well (you understand everything I have talked about today , all of that is already in your mind...) You are doing real good... And there is a racist white/Mexican/Asian or even another black man and he sees your doing well and he isn't... Ofcouse this man will instantly start hating. But this mad is so racist and a hater to such level that he will walk past you and says an extremely racist and offence comment. (Now your a intelligent man and you understand that flipping you will not get you anywhere) All you do is laugh at the person and say ''Am sorry am doing so well , maybe someday you will understand how much that nothing means to me'' Wink, chuckle and walk off. Now I don't know about you but if I was a racist man and I am hating on the well being of this man ''I will be so off put it will most probably change the whole way that I actually think.'' I mean I understand it might be very hard to first get used to it. Personally I have a short temper and sometimes anger gets the best of me... And at first everytime I heard a racist comment (not just to me , to anyone) I would just completely blow and loose it , but after some time and increase in my actual intelligence I treated these racist comments as jokes. If I heard someone say ''you aint shit you **'' I would just laugh in this persons face and say ''you don't even know'' this would leave the person stunned and not know what to say. I am telling you brothers and sisters, this word should not offend you , you should rise above all this bullshit , hold your head high and not let someones stupid choice of words effect you.You just live your life and since the sky is the limit ... You go aim for the stars Thank you very much for reading my oppinion and advice , if there are any issues you would like me to talk about or need help in any everyday troubles.. Be my guest to ask me any questions and i can gurente i will try my best to answer your questions, thank you More
