First, let me begin by saying that I am neither Libertarian nor Republican. I do not believe in elitism or any other practice that purposely disenfranchises sections of humanity. I am an atheist middle-of-the-road type who believes in the reality and certainty of Natural Selection as well as the hardwiring of human inclinations to destroy themselves. My statement that 90% of humanity is composed of followers remains true as is demonstrated by the animal in question. 10% of humanity are forward thinkers and less than 2% are natural born leaders, and the 90% drag the 10% down and thwart most of the good that the 10% could ever accomplish. This has been repetitious throughout human history since the formation of villages.
In the village there were village elders who held authority due to experience and charisma and directed the function of the body of people to greater efficiency or to complete ruin, it depended upon the leader. As humanity overcame natural predators, we gathered into concentrations of greater numbers and abandoned the hunter-gatherer way of life in favor of agrarian society. Villages appeared with small governmental structures and alliances or wars were made against opposing human concentration. History remains very much the same in that the elders, kings, whatever they called themselves, were many times afforded the ability to ignore the very laws that they themselves created because they had become corrupt and greedy. Seem familiar?
Today we complain about deregulation and the oligarchs that it has created. The ‘village elders’ have enacted broad deregulation of all of the major industries in this nation which in turn has allowed a select few to buy everything and stamp out small competition and bring the working people under the corporate boot. This is no different from the practices of 10,000 years ago and will continue until humanity has self-destructed or, on the off chance, evolved beyond the need for killing his brother, which I don’t think is possible. We can put a microchip on the head of a pin in 1967 but can’t control base animal behavior in 2015; we’re gonna fucking die!
Don’t be stupid people, we are full on oligarchy in the U.S and are nothing more than a corporate state with 1% of our population about ready to corner 40% of global wealth, that does NOT bode well for anyone and there is no significant opposition to this form of condoned indentured servitude! People are watching the fucking Kartrashians and worrying about what that stupid vapid whore Kim is gonna name her next genetically challenged supertard instead of trying to prevent corporate America from putting chains around their necks! Unbe-fucking-levable! Get your Goddamned face out of Michelle Duggar’s fucking diseased, well-traveled snatch and pay attention to whats going on before you end up having to hoist a rifle to protect your way of life!! But then again, instead of enacting sensible gun legislation, you pussies will probably try to ban them first. Hitler himself said that the best way to conquer a people was to first disarm them, and I truly believe in this. I believe that one of the reasons that we don’t experience the same problems as the Western Europeans is that terrorists fear our legal gun owners and know that they would never make it to trial if they tried the shit that they did with Charlie Hebdo, (Je suis Charlie, by the way, you savage pieces of shit!).
We, as a nation, are living up to the expectations of those who decry our lack of historical knowledge. We are repeating the most basic corruptions practiced by village elders of pre-history, we are excusing the transgressions of our leadership and looking the other way until things are so fucked up that it takes armed bloodshed to correct! We are doomed, I say. I have no faith in humanity to correct their greed and avarice, so I expect that we will destroy ourselves and another species will become dominant, period. All that I can do as a father, is to protect my children for as long as I can and hope beyond hope that humanity is more than just a base animal, I think not.
Fuck the talk about minimum wage and the bullshit about redistribution of wealth, we won’t be around long enough for anything to make a difference. Free-Speech TV is just a granola-shitting attempt to envision the human race giving a shit about one another and that is truly delusional shit. Much of it is crap anyway and doesn’t jibe with any real situation whatsoever, big fucking surprise.
(CNN)The mysterious deaths of five Utah family members in their Springville home baffled authorities at first.
Benjamin and Kristi Strack were found dead on their bed on September 27. On the floor near them in the locked master bedroom lay the bodies of three of their children, from 11 to 14 years old.
There were no signs of violence, but beside each body, there were cups with liquid inside.
On Tuesday, police in Springville revealed the conclusion of their investigation: The parents had committed suicide by taking toxic levels of drugs and had given fatal levels of drugs — including the heroin substitute methadone — to their younger two children.
Their 14-year-old son, Benson, also had taken toxic levels of drugs, but the manner of death was ruled “could not be determined” because investigators were unsure whether he was capable of deciding to join his parents in committing suicide.
But why would a family do this?
According to a statement released by J. Scott Finlayson, chief of police for Springville, the parents had bought into “a concern about a pending apocalypse.”
From interviews with friends and relatives of the Strack family, the statement said, “it became fairly apparent that the topic of ‘leaving’ this world was a fairly common theme.”
It added, “While some friends thought that suicide may have been, or could have been included in their plans, others believed they were going to move somewhere and live off the grid.”
Tragically, the parents chose the former option, police believe, and took their children with them.
No suicide notes
They didn’t leave behind many clues to their thinking. Investigators found a notebook with the kind of handwritten lists parents write before going on vacation — like feeding the pets and asking someone to watch after the house — but no suicide notes were uncovered.
However, one note was found apparently written by Benson to a friend, “which indicated that Benson was aware that he may die, and was bequeathing his personal possessions to his friend,” the police statement said.
“This was the only letter or note found that gave any indication that family members knew what may transpire in the home.”
It was this note that led investigators to conclude that Benson might have known that he was going to die, having been heavily influenced by his parents’ apocalyptic beliefs, and could have agreed to the plan.
“The other two children were obviously too young, at ages eleven and twelve, to consent to any sort of agreement to commit suicide,” police said of his sister, Emery Strack, and brother, Zion Strack.
This, and the fact that their parents must have provided the drugs, led police to determine that their deaths were homicide.
The medical examiner’s report said the drugs that caused the children’s deaths were methadone and diphenhydramine, a common over-the-counter antihistamine used in such medications as Benylin and Nytol.
The autopsy for Kristi Strack, 36, revealed the cause of death to be “drug toxicity,” with methadone, dextrorphan, diphenhydramine and doxylamine found in her system.
She was receiving methadone treatment, police said, so she would have known just how toxic this combination of drugs would be. This contributed to their determination of suicide.
Her husband, Benjamin Strack, 37, was found to have a toxic level of heroin in his body.
Investigators say they think he was the last to die, his family around him.
“His arm and leg were draped over Kristi. He was on top of the bed covers; while the other family members were under bed covers. This would indicate that he was likely the last in the family to succumb to the toxic levels of drugs in his system,” the statement said.
This was the awful scene that confronted another son of Kristi Strack when he and a girlfriend, who’d noticed an eerie quiet in the house, got inside the locked bedroom.
In an audio recording of the 911 call made from the house, also released by police, an emotional-sounding young woman can be heard saying that “the whole family is dead” and that they’ve “killed themselves.”
Finlayson expressed his condolences to Strack family relatives, saying the unexpected nature of the deaths must have intensified their shock and grief.
“In a case such as this one, where this family has lost not one, but five family members, the deep emotional pain must be incredibly difficult. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family,” his statement said.

-This just in, another bunch of fundamentalist assholes have taken their lives and murdered their own children in crazy devotion to a mythological supreme sky cop who seems to be playing the best hide and seek routine ever! These crazy idiots are no great loss to society, but should have been able to be held accountable for the slaughter of the innocent kids!
I have always believed in that which built this country, I just don’t believe in greedy bullshitters! I built my life after living in cars for the 1st 18 years of my life. I have proven the words that this man says!! My path? GED, tech school, military, college, grad school! All self-made without welfare!
