Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region Regional Message Board
I'm Xyanth. This nation is mostly Capitalist-Libertarian in nature. While that is the general rule, it is not our religion. When the situation calls for it, our minds can be changed.
Greetings, I understand perfectly the General Rule Completely and will do my Best for you All.
The risk of spreading the disease to the general population in the United States by bringing to a top private hospital is tiny - the hospital is the best place on Earth to contain this sickness.
If the disease does spread to the general population in the United States it will NOT be from a man in a moon suit being taken into a top hospital. It will be from someone nobody noticed (perhaps an illegal immigrant) who will bring in the disease without even knowing they are doing it.
That is exactly the argument I've been making.
Greetings to all the nations that chose to join us. Football season is firing and my job is extremely demanding right now. Hopefully I can have a new poll up by tomorrow evening.
Have a good weekend and do something fun.
Okay Thanks, Same to you too.
Sorry about the delay. Work has been a riot this week. This week's poll is kind of close to me. In fact it is going on not too far from me.
More and more we are hearing about police officers harassing, badgering and giving unlawful orders to members of the press. This brings us to Ferguson, MO where the police shooting of a black youth sparked several days of riots that are still on going.
Check out the raw video on this page: http://www.ksdk.com/story/news/local/2014/08/14/crews-hit-with-bean-bags-tear-gas/14042747/
It clearly shows a deliberate tear gas attack on a working news crew. In addition to that a local crew was ordered out of the area at gun point, a TV photographer has hit in the leg with shotgun fired bean bag and several other journalists have been arrested, hauled off to jail only to be released without being booked or charged.
So tell us what you think? Is this just an isolated incident or have things in this country deteriorated to point the government is using force on the media now?
Poll is up.
 For this discussion we will define press as people working for a general distribution media outlet that actually get paid for what they write. Bloggers, Tweeters and Facebook trolls do not meet that standard.
I find myself on neither side in Ferguson - the police have indeed been militarised (a very bad thing), and the Mayor of Ferguson, the Governor of Missouri and the AG of Missouri are all corrupt Dems (trial lawyer shake down specialists), however the other side are mobs who are intent on burning the town (and the media are fanning the flames).
St Louis is a disaster area and the black people fleeing from it (to Ferguson) have, sadly, brought some of its problems with them - ironically the very Governor (Nixon) who has now sent in the National Guard (tanks, snipers, the works) has been fanning the flames of resentment for years (both as AG and as Governor) by telling people that none of the problems were their own fault - that it was all the fault of "big business" and if only he could win another big settlement (more money) all their problems would be over......
As for the press - there is a basic dishonesty about the msm.
They have a particular political point of view (basically pro rioter - they have shown that since the Watts riots in 1965 where they systematically smeared [lied about] Chief Parker and blamed everything on police brutality and not enough government welfare spending - and that was in the California of Governor Brown).
However, the media are not honest about their agenda (as they would have been in the 19th century - when newspapers openly and proudly argued for a point of view, on their news pages as well as the editorial page) they pretend to be "objective" and "scientific" (as taught by the "Schools of Journalism" - which did not exist in the 19th century when there was no special "caste" of journalists).
So people (such as police officers) get really, really angry with journalists - not so much for their political agenda, but for their dishonest pretence of not having one (their pretence of somehow being neutral between the police and their enemies - when, in reality, the msm are very much on the side of the rioters).
That does NOT justify what the police did - not at all, but it helps to understand the situation. When a policeman sees a journalist (of the msm) he sees another enemy, just one who is not going to attack him from the front (like the rioters) one who is going to stab him the BACK.
If there was real diversity in the media (diversity of OPINION - openly expressed) then things would be different.
As for Ferguson - its fate is sealed (whatever happens now), it will go like St Louis (the very place the black people now in it, fled from).
It is all very sad and depressing - as most black people (as recently as the 1950s) used to be conservative. There was no welfare culture, and criminal culture as there is now.
There is no genetic "racial" reason for this decay - it is a cultural revolution deliberately created by a mostly white elite (who think of black people as useful canon fodder against "capitalism") Cloward and Piven in action.
So what is the answer?
