    Some people just feel a need to flex their power.....it's rediculious.

    People in this country are not nearly as Free as they think they are. The State completely owns them. Seriously,it's true.

    Dude, it freaks me out when I see things like this. Really, it does. I don't know what to do really though but to read and better my own knowledge, but all that does is freak me out more...I just wish I knew how I can help fix things beyond just voting and bettering myself and my friends who will actually listen (...pretty much none of them).

    Disheartening sometimes.

    Seems like we live in the text book definition of a soft tyranny. I wish I understood more.

    Yea i hear ya. It's very frustrating. The State becomes more & more powerful everyday. People have very little real Freedom & Liberty. Most are just duped into thinking they're Free. The State really does completely own them. It is very sad but it is what it is i guess. :(

    Perhaps it's time for people to just say no to some of the stupid crap being imposed instead of shaking our heads and letting it pass.

    Is it possible that a life of crime can begin by 13 year olds selling cup cakes? Sell cup cakes today... Pot tomorrow... Heroin the next day... I can see the connection.

    Now, all joking aside. It's a real shame that things like this are common place in America these days. It's foolish and needs to stop.
