Dangerous Words

Did you know that a private individual speaking the word “Amen” can cause “irreparable harm,” and can literally be jailed for speaking that word? Well, that’s how it is in America, according to a federal judge. No, I’m not making this up. No, this isn’t a restriction on a government agent. This is a restriction on any person who dares to utter that word at the “wrong” time.

Go ahead, keep trying to convince me the Constitution is the law of the land.

    This Medina Valley controversy has me wanting to go there to shout “AMEN” at the end of the ceremony.
    This is just yet another example of the tyranny of the minority- where one person can screw up everything for everyone else- is this how they feel power? I wonder-
    You would think that these people, being “agnostic”, might want to hedge their bets, but no- they want to mess it up for everyone else.
    There is a special place in hell for people like that, who have the unbridled conceit to think that they matter more than the majority of everyone else.

    My hope is that hundreds of students will say “amen” at various times during the program. It will be interesting to see how many people will be jailed for speaking a forbidden word.

    For the average traveler, the USA is fairly safe, and the numbers do not lie.

    There are more than 200 million guns in the USA and more than 50 murders a day, 10 times the rate of Germany. Less than half the USA murders involve guns, so there is a one in 80,000 chance you will be shot while in America.

    There are no guns in England, and 30 murders a day. Germany has 1/4 the population of USA yet 28 people a murdered there each day.

    Nearly 5000 people die a year in truck crashes, about 6000 pedestrians die on the streets and 31000 people end their own lives.
    Some of these statistics overlap, though…

    The USA now leads all nations in violent crime and leads all nations with incarcerations now standing at 2.3 million.

    Which would lead one to assume, from the above statistics, there are a lot of guilty criminals in jail!
    Some people think that is an indication of a dangerous country, where criminals are locked up, rather than dressed in turbans and strapping bombs on the kids. But what do I know? I am Japanese! I know some uses of a bayonet.

    American citizens also make up the greatest number of criminals serving time in overseas prisons. Did you know that it is a jail-able crime in many countries to be American? Certainly explains why so many are in jail.

    My favorite line from that article is this one, “Militias, hate groups and other right wing radicals all spread their message of violence and are known to throw around the odd pipe-bomb.”
    Followed by this one, “The government is not much better, spending a whopping $600 billion a year on defense in order to contain the handful of nations hostile to it.”
    In the first, all violence has come from the left, that is WHY they are called “The Left.”
    Second one, I am sure the writer would like for American to roll over and let them rape her. That’s the only way those tiny Scandinavian dicks will get to her…if the Big dogs give in to them.

    Now Adam, tell us again how proud you are to be a liberal? And how you prefer lying atheist and mus limps writers to Christians?

    Come on big boy, step up and whiffle again.

    We are past the tipping point people.
    Just as YouTube has cultivated a generation of passive watchers so are we; watching, commenting and doing nothing to stop the inevitable outcome.
    Barry has bent America over, we are moving our lips kissing it goodbye.
