Being over 70 years old and having lived through WWII in Europe and lived in Mexico, I have an excellent understanding of what dictatorships are and how they function. The fact that America is rapidly heading into a despotic state is obvious to anyone of my age. Furthermore, every branch of our government is involved. The Supreme Court recently ruled that the charge of 'assistance to terrorism' does not necessitate an overt act; all that is required is providing assistance and/or encouragement to the act. That in effect means anything, for instance, calling the executive a fool, writing a pro-Palestinian article, objecting to Israeli Middle East policies, holocaust denial – anything the bureaucracy disapproves of becomes a violation of this law.
Under the newly enacted – sponsored by McCain (R-AZ) with approval of 93 (STUPID) Senators – National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the president was granted the right to arrest and detain any American citizens any place in the world without a charge, indefinitely, without right to council, without a warrant, and to torture any such American, merely on his say-so or by indictment of a secret court whose members are anonymous. This totally obliterates the habeas corpus provisions of the Constitution. Furthermore, this law eradicates the Posse Comitatus Act [18 U.S.C. 1385] of June 18, 1887 that prevented the government from employing American military against American civilians.
The president already took upon himself the right to assassinate any American citizen any place in the world without charge, trial, judge, jury and evidence of a crime, simply on his say-so, and has already used that authority to murder.
The enacted in 2001 and re-approved in 2011 USA Patriot Act is the most sinister of all, in that it violates the first, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth amendments of the Bill of Rights. In expansion, it grants the government the right to rifle your mail, tap your telephone and inquire into what you are reading. In a stunning overturn of well-accepted fourth amendment rights a federal court has granted government the right to track your movement with GPS technology, including via cell phones and GPS equipment.
Meanwhile, your local police force is buying everything from spy drones to night vision equipment and are being militarized hand over fist. These weapons and systems that local police are purchasing are not for law enforcement; they are decidedly for issues like crowd control, nighttime secret incursions, combined actions with the National Guard and regular Army, which is now possible due to NDAA. Worse is the fact that numerous airports and facilities around America have had their security services subcontracted to Israeli security firms. While the government contracts training to SPLC for federal agencies and smaller local state agencies follow their lead, SPLC is the most bias-twisted, anti-Christian organization in the land. The federal government has established links with the JDL, Mossad assets, the American Jewish Congress, the ADL and other Israeli operatives; while we cannot prove this we know it to be the case. The story put forth by the Mossad that everyone in government now accepts as gospel is that Israeli and American security issues are one and the same. This, upon examination of issues, is utterly ridiculous.
Lest we forget, police are supposed to serve and protect while military kill and destroy. The two functions are wholly incompatible in a republic. I saw this firsthand in Germany from 1938 onward and in Italy, and in Bulgaria and then in the entire Soviet bloc empire.
In view of the Pollard, Franklin, Rosenberg and scores of Israeli spying operations against us and considering the USS Liberty affair, we would be wise to rely on our own security apparatus and not become entangled with the agencies of a nation which has for decades been most actively spying against us.
We are already underwater with Israeli telephone monitoring and billing operations that have been off-shored by domestic suppliers to Magal Security Systems, an Israeli contractor. Let's be cognizant of the fact that, according to information released last December, there is now operative monitoring of all electronic communications as well as GPS systems. We do not think it rational to allow such information to be subcontracted offshore.
What we are pointing out here is that all the required means for the operation of a top-down police state are either already in place or are being put in place as you read. Even the agencies to administer all this from the federal level, Homeland Security – with over 220,000 employees – is a functioning agency run by one of Obama's dubious associates.
Beginning with 9/11 – a false-flag operation if ever there was one – the nation has lost one liberty after another, and now we have even lost our most basic right to face our accuser, habeas corpus, that has been part of English speaking law since the 12th century. The president, meanwhile, has taken to himself the right to use our own military against its citizens by voiding Posse Comitatus – enacted in 1887 after the war of northern aggression to alleviate the excesses of the Yankees as they had looted, raped and burned their way from Richmond to Atlanta – and the elimination of almost the entire Bill of Rights through the enactment of the USA Patriot Act, which had essentially been written and ready for enactment for over 15 years before 9/11.
What would it take to instill in a mentally challenged population the willingness to have stripped away what little of our freedoms still exist? A little pre-arranged action to be blamed on Iran would make the neocons very happy, the president could be re-elected, the population induced to war against yet another Middle East nation, then the expansion of more freedom crushing laws, the enactment of national hate laws with the government providing the definition of hate, and there you have it – Soviet America Empire of the 21st century.

Free-Market Analysis: A new book has just been published, and we are indebted to a feedbacker for bringing it to our attention. Our feedbackers are generally far more insightful and clever than we are, so we are not surprised when they notice something we don't (even all 1,000 of us). In this case, Bluebird not only noticed the book and the revised prediction in one of its chapters, she sent us a feedback making an intriguing connection between the book and power-elite promotions regarding the end of the world. Sub dominant social theme: "Stop worrying. There's no need to riot. Go home."

Bluebird, don't take it too personal. I don't think Ingo really meant it (or he probably doesn't realize how his words will be understood). Besides, you probably know by now that comments are sometimes a bit rough here on the DB...

Hi Weebley. I just have a few minutes. I am off to yet another appointment for the kids-seems like the 1000th this month. I clicked your links and spent a few minutes there. I am sorry, I just cannot understand. Perhaps I will try again later this evening when all is quiet.
I am not sure what you mean by the things you said in this post, but I wanted to make sure you knew I was being sarcastic. I did not think he was nice. He has implied we were imbeciles, I had built myself into a box because I did not jump on his ideas and now ignorant. I have since changed my mind and decided his ancestors may have been arboreal after all. I'm out of here. :-)

When I use the term "box" with Bluebird, I am referring to a "box" she built herself. Of course, to think outside that box, she has to do away with the box.
You intimate with your quote that such box does not exist. That it is ok to be ignorant, and that there is no need to gain greater understanding.

J: "The concept of an electromagnetic evolution seems to be a twist on the idea of reincarnation. Neither of which can be reconciled with God's plan of salvation. If he was going to allow a multi-life, multi-stage learning process for humans to be able to become "good", or better themselves during each cycle of life, then there would have been no need for Christ to have sacrificed himself for the sins of the entire world. "Once, for all."
M: Personally, I am fairly sympathetic to the idea of reincarnation. There is quite a bit of anecdotal evidence suggesting that it is possible, and even some empirical evidence. For instance, do you know about the research of Dr. Ian Stevenson, which was mostly published in peer-reviewed journals? You might want to have a look.

Also, I don't see how you can take for granted that the version of the Bible that you are reading today is truly "the word of God" (assuming there is a God) or that the Christ story as you know it has any relationship to actual historical facts. There's probably no point in debating these beliefs - I just want to point out that it is very possible to not take for granted what you quite explicitly assume to be self-evident.
Posted by Jeanna on 01/17/12 11:20 AM
What a diversity of beliefs! And, all discussion is interesting. Electromagnetic evolution is certainly a different twist. My main purpose for this discussion was simply to point out that evolution is not a fact, has never been demonstrated, does not have any support in the fossil record, and should not be taught as science, nor as religion in our schools.
God's creation account cannot be demonstrated, but there is a great deal of physical evidence for s special creation, for the world-wide flood, for many of the historical references for both people and places of the Bible. I do not advocate teaching it as a science course, nor a history course, though there is some of each to learn from it.
You either include both religious courses, or you exclude both.
God created all living things during the week of creation, each bearing fruit after its own kind. The bearing fruit is the continuation process he set in motion. A peach seed bears a peach tree. An apple seed bears an apple tree, etc. Only one of his creation received the breath of life. The human soul is exclusive to humans.
The concept of an electromagnetic evolution seems to be a twist on the idea of reincarnation. Neither of which can be reconciled with God's plan of salvation. If he was going to allow a multi-life, multi-stage learning process for humans to be able to become "good", or better themselves during each cycle of life, then there would have been no need for Christ to have sacrificed himself for the sins of the entire world. "Once, for all."
I realize that we are dealing with the continual search for truth, but you do not have to take it beyond what He has already made known to us. It is truly quite simple. It is a contract.
Every single day we are given another opportunity to make that contract with God. People are able to easily understand the concept of a blood contract with the devil, yes? Think of it in reverse as an eternal life contract with God.
He created us. He allowed us to have free will. We sinned, and dropped from Grace, perfection. There is no way for us to be able to buy our way back to grace, nor to work to redeem ourselves. What are we going to give Him that he does not already have?
He had to have a way to buy us back, to redeem us, reclaim us. Planned from the beginning, Christ took on the form of the created man, lived a life without sin, revealed the plan, made the sacrifice, took on the sins of all the world through His death, burial, and resuurection. He lived the perfect life we were unable to live, and then He took on the death we deserve. We are able to come back into the perfect grace of God, if we agree to put on Christ's righteousness.
The agreement is that we are buried in baptism (immersed) as a symbol of Christ's death, burial, and ressurection, agree to love Him above all others, and to love our neighbors as ourselves, abide in His Word, and teach it to others as we are able. If we do so, our reward is eternal life. We become sons and daughters of the Living God, the King of Kings.
He blots out our sins, and sees only Christ's robe of righteousness. There is no other way we can become good. Christ's righteousness is God's definition of good. We can live a moral life, without murdering anyone, without stealing, cheating, lying, envying, gossiping. But, if we do not recognize the gift our Father gave us of the sacrifice Christ made for us, we will never be good enough.
It is a choice we are given, not a life-cycle process, and as such only sentient, soul bearing humans have the ability to make that choice.
If I tell you as a business person that I will give you $5 if you will sweep the sidewalk, do you expect to receive the $5 if you do not sweep the sidewalk?
Any other process than the one God put in place removes personal responsibility for that choice. You cannot take away the agreement and expect to participate in the reward.

"... something rather than nothing". Subtle difference. However, that is how propagandists work. They make you think you read one thing, when the meaning was quite another.

"Something rather than nothing" = "Something out of nothing"

"Additionally, how we write DOES effect how others consider our comments. I don't believe this makes those reading the words an "imbecile."
Yes, but you should not let your emotions determine whether to be knowledgable about the subject or not. Someone who wants to argue by dictating the relevancy of the rebuttal, is an imbecile. I stand by the characterization of such person.
"Communication is a two-way street." I completely agree. It is the reason why I commented on your post.

"Trying to find the truth can be a very lonely path (I speak from experience... )."
It can be indeed. The best way to explain "Evolution" without creating too much of a controversy, is to think of a Rubic cube. Give a Rubic cube to a blind man, and ask him to line up the colors. He won't be able to do it. The odds that he would do so are practically infinite. However, take that same Rubic cube, and have the blind man line up the colors by telling him what he has done with each move, and he will have the colors lined up within minutes.
The point is that the "life" evolved through feedback. Mutations which "worked", survived in their new configuration. Those mutations that that "didn't work" in a new configuration, vanished.
A good book to read on the subject is "Bionomics" by Michael Rothschild.
