Let me put on my tinfoil hat, What Im worried about… It isnt just about money or clicks, The media is dividing us and causing us to dehumanize each other. Why? They want us to fail so when this powder keg blows, there will be a global force to help us resolve our issues. 1. They will disarm us 2. They will override our constitution with a more European/ Canadian approach. 3. They will provide enough international support and bodies to overwhelm our remaining armed citizenry. 4. More than half of this country (Democrats a Rhinos) will be for the new way.
Makes you wonder what it would be like today without social media.
Yes the divide has become acute and I don't know if there is any solution.

Ok…..but if they have no probable cause to arrest him, I don’t understand how they had probable cause to confiscate his property?

So I’m struggling with the idea of forcibly committing/imprisoning the countless whacked out and batshit crazy Americans among us. I have no problem telling others that they are not fit to live amongst our American society. I guess my question is how can that legally be determined? Why should it be any different than a criminal trial? Why do we not have local prosecutors bring forth an indictment to a grand jury of sorts to determine if you are bat shit crazy? Then you must be convicted by a jury of your peers to have your rights restricted. Never mind. None of that matters. This isn’t about solving the problem nor do I think that could feasibly work. Our culture is rotten and needs a grassroots disinfectant. Something to purify and get back to building a community
There actually is a process for involuntary commitment. We went thru it with my MIL (who was crazier than you can ever imagine & as mean as a snake to boot). It required lawyers & a trial in Family Court but ended with her locked in a restricted facility for her own good. The problem is that WE had to be the ones to drive it, WE had to convince the county attorney to take the case, and WE had to pay all the legal fees (including for her lawyer). A lot of people aren't willing to do that - even when it's to protect a loved one, not to mention other people.

There are a few different options but the biggest root cause is having to pay for other people’s belief/value systems.
People need to be able to earmark 1/2 their tax money for where they believe it should and choose where it shouldn’t go. Federal and state budgets must be adhered to.

Social culture issues should be decided at the state level. People can choose to live in trannyville or mayberry without having to worry about overly religious people trying to tell them what to do in Trannyville or transvestites reading books to kids at the local library in Mayberry.

If people can live how they want they wont care how others spend their time and money.

In Kentucky, anyone can go to their county attorneys office and file a mental health petition for involuntary commitment. If the county attorney agrees and files the petition, the subject is picked up and taken to the hospital for a 72 hour hold and evaluation. A 72 hour hearing is then held in District Court and a determination is made what to do going forward.

I start my day reading the headlines of all 4 major network news websites plus CNN in order to form my own opinions. You can get fairly decent news from 4 of the 5 but NBC/MSNBC reads like a DNC propaganda outlet. Half of their staff is black in a country of only 13% lol. “E’er buy dee race-ess!”
I rarely look at CNN. I haven't seen anything on that site in years that was anything but agenda. I think they will close down in the near future.
MSNBC is picking up where they left off. Oddly the local NBC stations are mainly conservative.
 
CNN at least presents a couple neutral opinions occasionally and though they’re definitely lefties imo they are head and shoulders above MSNBC, who’s site reads like a radical left wing site at best. Reporters named Ja’han, Zeeshan and Shareeka get all the space alongside Joyless Reed and Madcow.

WPSD is our local NBC affiliate in Paducah and they are as far left as it gets. I grew up on their local news but haven’t watched it in years.

Check out the headlines, if that ain’t straight BLM, F the USA, DNC propaganda I’ve never seen it.

I never look at that site. I only browse www.msn.com. Usually MSN, OANN, NewsMax, Fox, BBC, CNet news.com, stuff like that. Plus local stations and I will browse the Sirius news stations.

I read the J Post, listen to The Watchman with Erick Stakelbeck and other various foreign media sources, even India, preachers and various Christian Media. I have economists streaming most days at work, not paying attention to opinions but gathering information to use in my own way. I occasionally glance at my banner on the work computer home page.

I try to get as much global information as possible, condense it in my mind for planned food/energy security, economical planning, career choices and then let the US MSM garbage roll off my back.

I don't believe any of it 100% because ALL media put their own twist on it. That's how they sell to their target audience. They all want to keep the clicks a comin'!

This article is interesting. It shows his political beliefs seemed all over the board. I think this is just a case of a sick individual.

Source from the UK got to be good.
