    ISIS won again! They made sure the "fear factor" works at a lot of cost to us. It worked with 9/11, it works again. So I repeat what I said last time. Again realize that we ourselves with all our gun murders have topped anything ISIS has produced in our country. Even if they would kill the same number here as in France, then we scored ourselves much better at our schools, theater, on the street and gave even little kids access to guns. So forget the "fear" we are used to it; lets get some more guns into the classrooms according to Trump and in the theaters. Then we don't need ISIS to help us to score big. Now the idiots on Wall Street hammered the airlines stocks because less people would fly because of fear; don't forget the last planes ever hijacked were done 14 years ago in this country; considering there are here at least 6000 planes above your head all day, the chance that one will crash or hijacked is extremely small compared to the number flights per day. Indeed in this country they thrive on FEAR. The church will always tell you that you will go to hell; so create fear then you have power over the people.

    “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”-- Plato

    It would seem the Republican party candidates are afraid of the light of day the way they are carrying on about Syrian refugees, immigrants, terrorists, airplane crashes, ISIS, gays, Planned Parenthood, ObamaCare, end of days, God's wrath, liberals and more. Those who live in fear engage in fear mongering.

    Pure politics! Just another scare tactic for the under/miss/semi informed conservative, old, white voter to chew on.

    No P.R. "fear" is baked-in, in this country; it starts already in church; "if you don't do what I tell you, you will burn in hell""

    They all buy/hoard "guns" because they "fear"; fear that they get "hacked" fear of "spiders" fear of the police, the government, the military, the NSA, The FBI, CIA but no fear of the NRA. Fear of Ebola, fear of the neighbors dog, fear of Putin, fear of food poisoning , fear of their own shadow, fear of ingrown toenails etc. etc. I could go on and on. This is the inbred fear country of the world.

    All all this is the aftermath of profit put before humanitarian rights. Our companies installed, supported or created dictators and or situations to rob native people of the resources of their lands. Those resources can be raw materials, oil, labor or whatever else can be negotiated away. That turns into Turmoil. Turmoil is a result not a primal entity. Starve, beat and otherwise abuse people and you get turmoil. Life was wonderful thousands of miles away from turmoil. Those times are gone. The most radical movements can now resonate in the minds of people in all the corners of the world. All the corners of the world now have major populations with nothing to look forward to. Telling people to quit feeling sorry for themselves and start a busines and get rich is wearing thin. Fear is a result. Fear is a result of witnessing deterioration. It is appropriate to use the biblical term "gnashing teeth" because that is what life is turning into for major populations. Our college students owe 1.2 trillion dollars in student loans. The robbing is taking place here.
