You know I was on another forum today and everyone was talking about NDAA and about how the police are becoming more militarized. A few weeks ago, barely anyone but myself and a few others were talking about this on that forum. I am feeling a bit more hopeful about my fellow Americans. They are waking up. YAAAAY!

Yes, there are good posts on this board that the trolls and detractors can't drown out. Let's keep the dialogue going.

And please do not be shy about throwing crap back into the faces of those who would deny that the sun rises in the east, you know the greed and corruption supporters. It takes little intelligence to stump and confuse fools like that, because like there masters they are blind to the truth. Perhaps a constant irritation but not very well informed.

I know, I try to set them straight, but some of them are real fools. They don't want to hear it. Even if you point to credible sources of info. Some people seem resistant to the truth.

BTW, I just shared this with someone. I have a few friends being badly hararrased by creditors/lawyers. They are afraid that this will happen to them. Please check this out.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/22/debtors-prison-legal-in-more-than-one-third-of-us-states_n_1107524.html

I like to put up a post about this, but it is getting too close to Christmas, so I may leave it to next week. Don't want to depress people.

I've just started hearing about this while checking out whats going on, on Twitter. It would definitely fit the pattern of growing abuse. It most definitely needs wide coverage. Because debtors prison is supposed to be illegal and this would be another blatant attack on American Citizens rights chipping away at the constitution. I look forward to your post on this, in the mean time I'll start brainstorming myself. I may need some time to recuperate for awhile to regather my resources. But I am definitely looking forward to getting something going.

Yes, just another attack on our constitutional rights. Debtor prisons were done away in the 1830's (as they were officially outlawed). Now there coming back? This just goes to show you the direction we are going in. The articles stated that right now 1/3 of the prisoners in jail are their because of debt. So naturally with that large amount of people being in jail for that reason--debtor prisons are on their way back.

I tell you DKA, my head is spinning from all the attacks on our freedoms that is going on in this country. Wow, they are working overtime to destroy this country--that is the powers that be. It is a sad time to be an American.

I'm sorry I can't quite concentrate at the moment. I have had an unbelievable idiot spewing crap about there being no need to fear cancer any more on another thread/post. I'll get back to you later on. Have a good night stay strong and pray for us all and I'll do the same.

I know there is a lot of adversarial people on this board tonight. I ran into a couple of posters that think the banks could do no wrong and if they do--it's all our Government's fault for making it so easy for them to behave unethically. Huh? So it is okay for the banksters to get involve in predatory lending, give out risky loans, and overall deceive people because our Government lifted laws and restrictions and created a banking environment where this bs could go on. Geez, just how flawed is that kind of thinking. Will the blind worship of the banks and corporations ever end?

Anyway, good night. Yes, I will be praying hard. Yes, I do believe in the power of prayer. God bless you.

For those of you just checking in.

Don't forget to petition the Justice Department to start prosecuting the economic criminals. There has to be accountability.

This is why we are here this is why you are needed.

One good turn deserves another.

Careful with the use of that last word. I got reprimanded by the site a little over a week ago for referencing it in a reply.

[-] 1 points by Windsofchange (1044) 2 years ago

Okay--I took it out. Thanks for warning me.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25258) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

No problem. Even keeping a good post in view and circulation can be hazardous.

[-] 1 points by Windsofchange (1044) 2 years ago

I know--tell me about it.

DKAtoday - I completely agree with you- this site is like a democracy, where lots and lots of bickering takes place- but eventually it works itself out. The really good content- only occurs here ! never on
http://www.themultitude.org/forum/ and http://www.occupyr.com/

Freedom has a way of attracting the best minds and people, and is an environment of growth of human potential. Those dead OWS sites would be smart if they were run like this one. Thanks JART http://simurl.com/mavtad

Thanks. We must keep the spotlights, laser beams and blowtorches on the bank executives who caused this mess. The bloody crooks.

The reason you are getting more "good content" is because the people who post and can present different ideas are "now allowed to voice theri opinions" instead of being banned or slammed.

Also the people that are posting "good content" are older folks who have a lot of experience to offer without be view as a "troll" by many.
