    "............... Boomers,they allowed the communist to infiltrate our nation and destroy it from within."
    Maria, I've spent considerable time with Russian history, including the Soviet Union (and especially East Germany). Trust me, we have not been "infiltrated from within...and destroyed..." by the communists.

    Communisin is communism just because it is not the Russian version it is still a form of communism. They just call it something else like social charity or something nice and sweet like that.
    I do think reperaritions of some sort should be paid but not what they are pushing today. I also think after the welfare patments have been deducted from the reperartions the payout will be disappointing to the recipiants. o_O
    The Federal Reserve was basically the end of the American way. We allowed a outside group to take over our finance and basic economy.
    All this is just my opnion of course based on what i have learned about history and man.
    I'm also venting and rejecting the blame put on some and victimhood of others causing more peoblems than remedys.

    Have there been any attempts to nationalize General Motors, Walmart, Amazon, or the corner bar, or any politician arguing in favor of this? This would be communism. Looking at it from the other perspective, perhaps we should sell the national, state, and county highway systems to private enterprise. We are already working on public education with attempts to privatize. Military? Given the downhill slippery slope from socialism to Soviet style communism, shouldn't we be working on getting rid of the nasty socialism that we already have? Social Security? Medicare?

    Unlike welfare ,food stamps SSI is insurence and we pay for it our entire working life.Especially if we make a decent wage,
    Have you ever heard the story about Davy Crocket?



    Or Madison,
    “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents…”

    I'm sure that no hard working man or woman comes in from work tired and sweaty wish they could work more hours to give to some other mans [ who is probably sitting on his rump or out putting out more dependants] dependants. :p

    Don't be so sure,
    even though rare.

    As the Bible says clearly, instructs men to work so that they can meet the needs of others.

    Likewise, if any man is unwilling "will not work", neither should he eat.

    No cardboard sign credit card for handouts, no. If food is truthfully needed, and someone has food to give, then give food as written. Not money for drugs or more sinful things.

    It is written "We are already in the last hour" (before Jesus Returns)

    Remember how long ago that is written ?

    That puts us in the last seconds probably, as written.

    The world / society is so wicked and polluted, top to bottom, it may well take a thousand years to clean up which won't start until Jesus Returns.

    Meanwhile, again as written, it may yet happen fast, one third of mankind killed, (and the remaining two thirds not turning away from serving demons).

    My understanding is we are to help the widows,orphaans and those who are poor through no faault of their own, not the able bodied or their dependants unless they are in carcerated for non support.
    This insanity of giving away toys and food to be resold at flea markets and yard sales. I saw this all the time. Charity begins at home.

    My family was against slavery for generations in any form.We threwout thebaby with the bathwater.We gave it all away. If not for cresit that makes it easy to give our charity would be genuine.
    We creat ghettos of crime and poverty by makinf weak men without honor or dicipline.
    This is just my own way of venting the loss of my culture and nation to evil peopel who also take from other nations for their military industrial complex.
    Whole cities of minorities and whites have been created to keep them in power.
    I watch the news and can't beleive what has happened.I feel bad for the youth of this world.

    I think you mean "the loss of (what you believed was) my culture" as if the culture was one day something right and good.

    Simply put, one small part, enough is spent on war and military and such

    to feed the world seventeen times and more, to provide housing for ten times the population of the world,

    and to first prevent and also to cure almost all disease worldwide , including enough clean water so no more thousands each week die just from thirst.

    Indeed...but everything you say will increase the world population...and that's something the big guys don't want. ...besides, the war business is ery profitable.

    I might be missing something, but the big guys here in Florida seem thrilled about the increasing population of the state. Who are the other big guys. and what are they doing to reduce the population? (Please spare me the thing about the vaccinations meant to kill people.)

    Some companies do take returns of plastic water bottles in certain states and pay a nickle or dime for each return.

    I remember although my brothers and sister were too lazy to go looking for them to get the return funds. I also remember when appliances lasted for years and hardly ever broke down.

    No we did have a culture just like others who came had a culture.Now we are all multi-cultural and I don't see much good in that.All nations have their own cultures but few keep theirs maybe China and India,South America? They are not as 'tolerant' as we are so they will survive
    I agree with whoever said this [I forgot],
    " neither a wise man nor a brave man lays down on the tracks for the train of the future to run over him".

    But then all empires fall sooner or later so its just the way it is.
