Didn't You Get The Memo? You're Supposed To Be Afraid Now

Despite the persecutions, despite the mysterious deaths, despite the media hit pieces and open unapologetic slander, it still seems as if you all haven't gotten the memo:

You're supposed to be afraid now.

It's called 'the chilling effect' and the way it works is; you're supposed to hear about and read about all the journalists being detained at airports, the whistleblowing leakers being sentenced to egregious prison terms, the lowly citizens being arrested, tazed, or eliminated entirely for filming police on the job, and you're supposed to become afraid from this and shut your mouth and ears for good.

Didn't you get the memo?

All you DIY-CSIs out there, all you people reading lionsofliberty, zerohedge, shadowstats, boiling frog post, economic policy journal. All you ancaps, malvinis, cyrils, golden equitys, even you, legalize liberty - you're all supposed to be afraid to speak, afraid to read, afraid to repeat and report.

Didn't you get the memo???

ISIS is here -- will Obama bomb the Daily Paul?

ISIS is here -- will Obama bomb the Daily Paul? He said he will bomb anywhere, any time in order to get ISIS.

So, ISIS is here. Now what? Now what? Now wh--

I got the memo

and I am fearful. fearful in the sense of serious respect of the danger that corrupt power hungry men pose to life, liberty and property of good people.

The US is headed for a wreck and unfortunately it will be deserved. We did know better at one time. We were a nation of law with a basic respect for human life.

No we are piss poor excuse for a modern nation.


Liberty = Responsibility

Christians do not fear...

Yet another reason large governments hate us.

All the power of the individual is taught in tthe Bible, while people mistake it as a book of servitude, it is a book that teaches freedom and how to keep it. Included is the removal of fear, even Christ said He came to eliminate fear of death.

Don't be ridiculous.

Christians don't fear....Get real.

This is what I mean ...

Don't Give me Liberty, I'll get up and get it myself!

And again you show your ignorance.

So what is this categorized as? Does this fall under "shoved in your face" because it appears on the Daily Paul, even though it is in no way directed at you? Does this person have no right to live without "fear", or to mention WHY they don't live in fear?

You are absolutely right, This IS exactly what you meant, and it's still absurd. Nothing has changed. Nobody is trying to force you into believing something you don't believe in. Nobody is "shoving anything down your throat". And nobody is persecuting you for not being religious.

If you are a "victim" here it is because you are looking to be a victim. I'm sure there is an NAACP'ish type organization out there for you somewhere to join. Maybe you could start rioting and having marches that call for the outlaw of all mentions of religion or faith. Good luck!

I sense great anger in you

... the comment was do not use ( insert mythical figure here ) to prove a point or to reinforce another's point.

and what did this fellow do used ( insert mythical figure here ) to show why he isn't afraid of anything.

That is my point ~ I'll stop posting it now because I see your unable or unwilling to debate me without calling me a name or insulting my intelligence.

Tolerance is not shutting everyone up

Tolerance is learning to accept the fact people have different views than you, and YOU learn to be okay with that.

I apologize friend. You who claim to be sovereign, yet fail to understand property rights and the jurisdiction and authority of your own court.

You can have all the rules you want, but they do not pertain to anyone except yourself.

are mean and sensitive. Were you an only child?

One of the biggest pitfalls in a "movment" is the temptation to get cultish about it and refuse to realize that it is only part of the picture. -Joel Salatin ; You Can Farm pg 202

Am I being detained ?

Am I free to go ?

To expand on this if I may

Fear and Greed both come from misdirected love.

For example: Those who love money will experience fear of losing money and greed to gain more.

Another example: If you take a love and they do not reciprocate your love, you will become at once greedy for their love (which they withhold) while always living in fear they will betray you.

Those who direct their greatest love towards heaven will experience no fear since they have directed their love towards truth, which is always trustworthy and will never abandon them. They have no greed as their souls are saved and what is as precious as the soul? What has one gained who gains the world and loses their own soul?

Is that like a add-humminum?

The only thing I fear is not fulfilling
my role in life before it runs out
But to fear any man,Ain't gonna happen :)

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Mysterious deaths? You sound

Mysterious deaths? You sound like a nut to me.

I can see you. You're just all over the place today.

Navy SEAL team 6

comes to mind.

Remember Andrew Breitbart.


Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Do you have any sources other

Do you have any sources other than the bible-thumping fundamentalist World Nut Daily?

Breitbart's family has not gone public with any such suspicions. Breitbart had a rather large fanbase in the conservative community, why is nobody else reporting these suspicions?

You' kidding right?

The entire conservative blogosphere has images of Breitbart's face and the caption "Breitbart is here" to mark the fact we all know it's a suspicious death.

The families of democide victims rarely speak out, and if they do, it's kind of like the Zen proberb, if a tree falls and no one hears it, does it make a sound. Similarly, if a dissident speaks out and the media doesn't cover it, do his ideas really exist?

Here is a link to the local ABC affiliate saying arsenic was found in the coroner's system:


And ambassador Chris Stevens...


Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

How is that suspicious?

How is that suspicious? Government incompetence sure, cover-ups and whatnot, but you're suggesting he was intentionally murdered?

To the ignored list along with Granger you go.

Boooobye! : )

Isn't the ignore button


How is it suspicious? I'll tell you how it's suspicious.

Bite me.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.


Well that clears everything up.
