    that I have figured this all out completely.

    But........1] Some people really are crazy
                 2] You want them in jail or a mental institution
                 3] Some of them are in the Big Gov't, some are not
                 4] Big Gov't needs a better way to find those crazies before too much harm can be done to Mother Earth

    I tend to think that some of the crazies might start developing a conscience and some morals if they thought they should be careful about what they thought and said out loud, ...in public..., like here on the internets. Like maybe it is all part of the process of making us ALL a little more intelligent and aware of the unintended consequences our actions have in the world. It isn't just about the individual, the ME, but our place in the fabric.

    Ideally, the silicon could help us achieve the more perfect union but I am guessing it will be as painful as the last couple million years has been.

    End of sad rant....

      no thanks.

      This isn't about "mother earth" or some esoteric belief system of the future.

      In the here and now, our government is shredding the fabric of what makes us Americans, freedom.

      Freedom from someone else's belief system being forced upon us as our own, that's what you'd have me buy into, I do not.

      There have always been "crazy" people and we've survived, nothing's changed except now Americans fear themselves.

      Our government has no need to know all that we do unless we are suspected of some crime.

          the State where Joe Arpaio makes too much noise. Arizona used to elect fairly calm and rational Democrats like Bruce Babbitt and  Raul H. Castro. This will take a little effort to get the pendulum to swing back......
