    AmcmurryFreedom Wrote: I have to admit PGR comes very close to whole life issue. It is truly about respecting others and all life in this world, but I take it further in the recognition of faith in my religious belief. I do believe in the acceptance of God and his son Jesus and I know I am a minority in the world of how others beliefs contradict my understanding. So, who's right? I'm comfortable with my belief as I know others appear to be comfortable in their beliefs. They are not threatening me, although the media says differently that some have a Jihad against me. I will continue as I feel to respect all others and their beliefs, but I have no thought of rebelling against my belief in God and his son Jesus.

    Today, I read with no surprise in how some have no respect for life. The news on the 32 mentally challenged or handicapped persons that won a lawsuit against theiir employer. The employer was from Texas and provided these individuals with jobs a meat industry plant in the Midwest. These mentally challenged and handicapped people were paid 42 cents an hour, inhumanely treated and housed in deplorable conditions. The owner of the Texas company received alot of money for his provision of "slave" labor. For God's sake, whats wrong with America? This greedy Texas bastard took advantage of poor, indigent, crippled and mentally challenged persons and allowed them to live under inhuman conditions. I read where the Texas employer has been charged in a $240M lawsuit, which if course it is being appealed. The lawyers are all over this like ants on honey and I expect some the 32 individuals that are receiptants of this lawsuit don't have a clue of the future that is about to be revealed. The Texas employers lawyers are going to wrestled this lawsuit down many millions. If any of this lawsuit complaints are true about the inhuman treatment of the 32 individuals, than this Texas employer is the lowest form of pond scum I can think of. This Texas employer challenges my beliefs and respect of all life. For some reason I cannot explain my human failing ways, I find no respect for this Texas employer.
    I just read about that and it made me sick! How do these people sleep at night?

If JC ever existed, so called "Christian Values" were around long before he was. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time so others could use him to further their goals.
    Oh so true. My favorite rant by Bill Maher is when he said preachers aren't christian, MLK was and Ghandi was so F'ing christian he was Hindi.

    What is this all about? I guess the subject is about "hell" on earth for those poor Bangla Deshi people. THAT IS THE SUBJECT!! Just show me on how your "god" cares about that.

    Many differing answers here concerning what's gone wrong with America. Clearly , something has. But apparently the answer to the question lies , as Noam Chomsky once put it, "outside the boundary of thinkable thought." The real answer, when glimpsed, seems so overwhelming and the solution so formidable that folks would rather turn their heads and pretend there is some lesser answer that will solve the problem as we go whistling past the grave yard.

    Just for the record; in the meantime the death toll in Bangla Desh is now over 700; 10 second attention in the news. But anyway keep those jeans coming; we love the blood on them. Let us worry more about ourselves and how much money we can make of these people. Hallejuja!!

    What went wrong is easy to figure out. One simply looks at the time just prior to change to see what caused it. For everything is cause and effect driven.

    Thanks for the response but your answer is simplistic. Of course, everything has a cause and effect The financial collapse of a few years ago
    was caused by Wall St. and the banks. Certainly, that was the immediate cause. But it was not the root cause. And since we never address the root cause these fiascos continue to fall on us. It is the system capitalism that needs to be addressed....a system that is spreading havoc at home and around the world. But, it seems to me that, most folks when they look at this fact are so overwhelmed that avert their eyes and pretend that a few simple reforms will slow down the beast. They have come up something the lies outside the boundary of thinkable thought.

    It is not simplistic. It is regressive analysis. Continue to roll back the clock till the seminal moment is found.
    In the case of the housing collapse one looks at what rules changed then looks at why the rule change was allowed. In this case the clear reason is where the Fed got the majority of its employees from, it weren't Office Temps. And that company came out clean when the dust settled. Coincidense?

    SORRY FOR ALL THE ERRORS CORRECTIONS IN CAPITAL LETTERS

    The world is in turmoil and that’s not a “The Sky is falling!” type statement. The bribes, the payoffs and the corruption of governments OFaid AND PAYOFFS have made a few extremely wealthy but for the people, it REMAINS unbearable. The problem surfaced shortly after WW2 with the influx of nations attempting to influence the governments in oil rich nations. Compounding the problem is the Arab Spring uprisings, proclaimed by the West as a movement to provide stability and Democracy to the area. THE failure OF STABILITY AND DEMOCRACY to materialize HAS HAD SERIOUS EFFECTS.
    The revolts of the people and invasion by the USA have done nothing positive and appearS to HAVE causeD more serious unrest THAN WE COULD EVER HAVE IMAGINED. What held the people together OF THESE OPRESSED NATIONS was an oppressive government, WITH that government removed THE VARIOUS GROUPS HAVE BEEN GIVEN A way for power struggles WITH THE OTHER groups. Some of the leaders of the various groups involved in the revolts have found that war can become a way of life and have found the power they obtained to their liking. Associations by SOME OF THESE MILITANT GROUPS with terrorist organizations may prove to be costly to us in the future.
    The instability cause by various fractions is not that different than what we are experiencing in our own congress. Two parties that can only agree on issues the people have said they do not want have chosen to support war and chosen not to provide for the basic needs of low and middle class families.

    OUR Politicians have reversed their positions, they say they are public servants who now consider “We the People” as their servants.

    It is simplistic and not regressive, because it does not regress to the root cause, but stops at the investigation at the latest disaster. It places blame but does not investigate the system itself and how it operates. Capisce ?
