Unless it is something of dire importance and has to be done by a dead line to complete an important task.
 -- Anonymous, USA     
    A colorful expose on today's United Socialists of Amerika (USA). Rather than thinking and growing in freedom and liberty, all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer long train of abuses and usurpations, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

    We are not really taught how thinking is accomplished.
     -- Wayne, Naples     
    As one still has a mind, it seems that one would put it to more use than watching games on computers and using ones thumbs to accomplish something...points on a game. They are being trained and seem to like it. Mesmerize them with the little games and they won't care if there is no sovereignty of person or place. No work, goes the propaganda, is necessary, for the government will care for you. And the thumb users are good with that.
     -- Abigail, Newport     
    How true! In today's indoctrination centers (read public schools) children are discouraged from too much thinking as that would lead to questions and one never questions the indoctrinators.Anyone who questions the actions of Obama today is considered the "enemy." What a wonderful world we've let ourself deteriorate into where liars, fools, cheats, and just plain vile individuals are running the country.
