Also, all the videos of Amber were posted last year. Was there more information about this that brought it up again?

How is that dumb? Do you really think that, if the American people militantly rebelled against the government, the military wouldn't eventually turn predator drones on them?

It's written in the constitution that we can rebel against the government if they destroy any of our unalienable rights. This being said, I'm sure if the government really was ******* up bad, then even the military and police would rebel. We are not at a point where the government is doing anything totally unjust to the citizens. You still live in a house, have plenty of food and water, have bathing opportunities, and have access to the internet. On top of this, you are protected by the most powerful military in the world. I think you may take a few things for granted if you think that our government would be low enough to do that its citizens. The UN would step in, NATO would step in, and various other organizations would step in to help the people.

Well, I never said the time was ripe for a rebellion, only that in the event a rebellion broke out the loyalists would be foolish not to use precision drone strikes to quell the rebellion through shock and awe.

more than half of the people on the left are so dumb that they think they know what's best for themselves. Truth is, there is a reason we don't live in a direct democracy: people in general are not only misguided but also completely confident in their flawed reasoning.

Just because I have little faith in the common man's ability to govern themselves effectively, which, by the way, stems from lack of effective education and therefore economic disparity, does not make me a blind conservative. Moreover, just because I called you a sensitive liberal doesn't mean I am a conservative idiot either. That is why I said you were sensitive and so defensive. I do not align myself with any standard of political view, but the irony in what just occurred only further supports my original statement that if it happened that I were a blind conservative, I would be wholly unfit to make choices in governance. Unless you are Jean-Jacques Rousseau in a Utopian Swiss Direct Democracy where everyone is an upper class educated voting citizen, then this particular political cartoon is irrelevant. Don't get me wrong, I am all for a "power to the people" ideal, but as far as my part of the country goes, a vast majority of the majority is uneducated, ignorant, angry, stubborn, and very sure that they themselves are 100% correct. Maybe in 50 years if there were to be a cultural revolution, there could be a possibility of conceding more power to the common person, but as far as these modern times go, I could see only chaos.

Revolution! Blood shed! Surely we won't end up ruled by a military dictatorship! Things aren't bad enough to warrant a revolution. Our problems could be solved if people got off their asses and protested/wrote/made their voices heard, instead of sitting on their computer bitching about it and making memes! You will change NOTHING here! NOTHING!

I am also insult this talk of revolution comes from a kid who is known for his right wing conspiracy theory nonsense. What you want is not representative of the United States, and you are not going to change dick.

I maybe had poor choice of words when saying revolution, but there needs to be a big change on how the people are represented in the government and how the public receives their information. Sorry if what I said came off as me wanting anarchy and violence, I just believe that the public should have a way to fight all of this corruption. I am guilty for this just as many people are, but it seemed like a couple days after the Snowden event happened, everybody stopped talking about it and just said, "yeah, government is spying on us, oh well!".

This goes for you and everyone else here who insists on bringing politics here:    
   
Your posts, rants, and ravings change nothing and ever will. Get off your asses and do something.   
   
If you are not of voting age, if you're of age and unregistered, or if you choose not to vote you cannot comment on politics. The first is fixed with age, the next two are a sign you're a lazy douchebag.   
   
America isn't, and never will be, conservative or liberal on a national level. We see the destructive tendencies of Conservatism in Nazi Germany, and those of Liberalism in the USSR/Mao China. If you consider yourself to be either: You are destroying the country.   
   
If you post political nonsense then delete posts/block users when your viewpoints are confronted, you are a douche with a bad argument.   
   
Finally: This is for comedy! Get your worthless political opinions out of here!

Discussion, even on the internet, does have an impact. Whether it's just inspiring someone to start researching and learning and eventually getting involved with politics IRL or if it gets more people discussing issues, it does have an impact.   
   
So you don't think people should discuss politics and educate themselves unless they are at a voting age? I just barely missed out on the last presidential election, but I'm not going to wait until the next time I can vote to start educating myself and hearing both sides to every argument.   
   
I agree, there does need to be a balance of both, but some argue otherwise.   
   
Again, I agree that deleting, blocking, etc., does show a weak argument.   
   
I understand this site is for funny content, but when a picture like this gets to frontpage, how can you think that it won't spark some kind of discussion in the comment section?

Kids assume they know best was my second point. Though that dies with age (Usually as some people are still children into their 30s now a days). Mostly I was commenting on those that don't even sodding vote and yet bitch when they feel the government's hurt them.

First point remains. The political on the internet talk a big game but haven't changed anything as of yet. If they want to talk the talk they need to provide results.

People always assume they know the best for everyone. That's just human ego. When someone is screwed, they blame the easiest target instead of blaming themselves, like blaming the government.   
   
Discussion and organization through the internet has yielded some pretty impressive gatherings and changes irl. Maybe if, notice my choice of the word IF, things get bad enough, then there could be some kind of plan of action organized through the internet by people that are politically active online. What I'm trying to say is, don't try to discourage people from discussing topics on the internet. You can tell them to **** off or move if they try to bring up politics on a completely unrelated post, but don't tell people that discussion on the internet is a waste of time because any method of discussion is beneficial.

“If something is wrong for you or me, it is also wrong for the cop, the soldier, the mayor, the governor, the general, the Fed chairman, the president. Theft does not become acceptable when they call it taxation, counterfeiting when they call it monetary policy, kidnapping when they call it the draft, mass murder when they call it foreign policy. We understand that it is never acceptable to wield violence nor the threat of violence against the innocent, whether by the mugger or the politician.”

How about instead of calling everyone stupid and stating how blatantly obvious it was, you actually get it out there so it doesn't happen anymore. If you did know about it, where was the proof you had to show people that this was happening. But you're probably the same people that are like "we r ananimus lololol taek dat govrmant"

she worked for CNN and then went to do a report in Bahrain a country. However, when she went to actually make the report for CNN they added in untrue claims which she knew to be false. She then went and "exposed" that CNN and Fox gets paid by the gov to alter what they say. But this is pretty common knowledge that the gov has at least some say in news broadcasting and that you shouldn't ever believe a 100% of what they are saying.

I would like to pose a question to all those 'informed' funny junkers that knew this SO far ahead of time.

If, in fact, this was common knowledge to you and the circles you run with, why is it you did nothing? I mean if there was blatant lies being thrown around, and you are so morally strong, why have i not seen any rallies? Any protests to demand a stop to the lies? Not even one nut job conspiracy militant group has attempted a coup of the US government. Why, if this is such a serious problem and half of the US already knew about it, was no action taken?

Well, where are all the people at the rallies now? I can't count anymore how often I have seen people call Snowden a "hero", yet I don't see millions protesting in front of the White House. I think that's why "Internet Activism" is so popular now. It allows people to keep their asses glued to their chairs while believing they are doing "something" when they are essentially doing nothing.

And yes, I do think that people should have realized that something was wrong when it turned out that the US media was not allowed to show the coffins of American soldiers.

because so few American people actually know their rights and how the law can effect them. they believe the law has most control over them when in fact they have the most control over the law but the government is changing that with every bill and every new law they pass. if people would read up on their own right and figure out what they could do they would realize that we as the people have the right to overthrow our government if we believe it to be too corrupt or if we want someone else in office or just a new form of government. its in our constitution that when the people who elect these officials see them doing wrong we have the right not as others in office impeaching but as citizens of this country who vote for these officials we have the right to overthrow our government and by law they can do nothing but we know they would try to stop it because they are greedy ***** who love the amount of power they have. its gonna take a lot of firepower and basically another civil war before the government actually has any real change. I hate fighting and war but those elected officials have so much power and love it so much that they would fight to keep it so if fighting is what it took then until people begin to realize they need to stand up a small coup isn't gonna do anything but end in disaster
