Price of Liberty

A display of the true nature of the American political machine. This blog is a collection of posts and news articles predominantly focusing on the West's setting sun. "No Man is An Island," but forced equality is a myth. Here, we look at the price we pay for liberty.

I don't pretend to be an authority on anything and my academic qualifications are far from thorough. Still, I try to remain open-minded and ready to learn! Check out the link portal below or scroll through the infinite multitude of posts.

Yes, some of these posts are apolitical and personal in nature.

America’s state of denial. 
This is the conversation that sprung up when I put up a picture of dead children who were killed by drones. 
They were “offended”, not by the fact that we are droning innocent children to death, but by the fact that I put up a picture of it…
This is the America we live in. Out of sight, out of mind.
As Mark Twain once uttered the words that have come to be my favorite quote of his, ”It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”

So a person put dead babies on their facebook and were surprised to see negative things come of it?
Seriously? 

Here is the point of my post —-> X
Here is your head —-> (?)
Posting dead babies is not the problem. Creating dead babies is. 
Any more stupid questions?

Sugashane, it’s appalling isn’t it? I received the same gut-reactions when I posted the same image to Facebook. People were belittling me because of how “abhorrent” the images were. I told them, generally, “perhaps you should consider voting for someone who won’t create circumstances like that which is photographed here.”
