Let's not have this escalate to anything else, alright. Do what I do and bounce it to the CB, like a pro.
It's just kind of silly that we're so scared of NDAA yet fail to acknowledge that our very own citizens murder 17,000 people yearly. Yes the government detaining us under highly circumstantial conditions is so scary yet there are no threads pointing out how ridiculous our murder rates are. The chances of a person killing you randomly on the street are higher than the chances of the government killing you even if you've been tried and convicted for a high felony. 13,000 people have been executed by the government since colonization. 17,000 people are killed by our average citizens every--single--year. Who should we be more concerned about?
Our focus should be more on //community//, bringing our fellow citizens out of the trends of murder, drug addiction and gang violence, not government fear-mongering. Join an urban youth club or something.
EDIT: The triumph of evil owes more to apathy and inaction by the good then to the ambition and drive of the evil.
