    The Migration or Importation Clause states that “The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.” In and of itself, the Clause does not grant Congress any additional authority. To the contrary, it is a limitation on power. However, it could be argued that the limitation on congressional power to prohibit “migration or importation” of persons until 1808 implies that Congress had such a power to begin with. The word “migration” suggests that that power extended to the prohibition of voluntary immigration, as well as the importation of slaves, which the Migration or Importation Clause was intended to protect. But the inclusion of the term “migration” was not meant to imply a general federal power to restrict migration, but was a euphemism intended to bolster the pretense that the Constitution did not endorse slavery. As John Jay – the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and coauthor of the Federalist Papers – pointed out in an 1819 letter discussing the Clause: It will, I presume, be admitted that slaves were the persons intended. The word slaves was avoided, probably on account of the existing toleration of slavery and of its discordance with the principles of the Revolution, and from a consciousness of its being repugnant to the following positions in the Declaration of Independence, viz.: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’” James Madison similarly argued that the Clause was intended to protect the slave trade against limitation prior to 1808, and that its phrasing was due to “scruples against admitting the term ‘slaves’ into the Instrument. Hence the descriptive phrase ‘migration or importation of persons;’ the term migration allowing those who were scrupulous of acknowledging expressly a property in human beings, to view imported persons as a species of emigrants, while others might apply the same term to foreign malefactors sent or coming into the country.” This suggests it is likely that the term “migration” was included only in order to avoid direct reference to slavery, and did not imply any general congressional power to restrict migration. In Federalist 42, Madison decried “ttempts have been made to pervert this clause into an objection against the Constitution, by representing it…as calculated to prevent voluntary and beneficial emigrations from Europe to America.”

    https://entertainment.slashdot.org/story/17/11/17/2147214/fcc-approves-next-gen-atsc-30-tv-standard Why should you be concerned? Who cares if they know what you watch? By having access to as little as videos you watch, you give them the ability to determine your race, sexual orientation, political bias, gender, age, and a plethora of other things about you. In and of itself, that wouldnt be an issue except that the data about you is sold to those who can use that information to increase prices of seemingly unrelated things like health, car, homeowner / renter insurance, costs for goods and services you buy online. You are the one paying for them to give your data away because when there is a financial incentive to "find something wrong", they most undoubtedly will. Now, as far as that internet ready toilet paper...

    I'd have to say yes they are. Silicon Valley is now akin to what Big Oil used to be. In fact, Data Mining as an industry, you know, all the shit they record about everything that you do, then sell it, is now BIGGER than Big Oil. So it should come as no surprise that they have intentionally built the infrastructure of your digital prison. But it goes even deeper. Fascism can be most easily described as a merger between government and corporations. According to Princeton, in a governmental system where politicians views represented the will of the people, if 0% of the people supported a particularly nasty bill, then 0% of the votes in govt would be for that system. Opposite of that is if 100% of the people supported a bill, then 100% of the votes in govt would be for that bill. What we have is about 30% of the bills get passed, regardless how much or how little support it has by the public. Smaller bills that dont really matter too much to the public tend to benefit either govt or corporations. The Princeton Study shows that the people in power truly do NOT care what the people want. And that holds true until you get to the top 1%. When you look at the richest 1% of people, then and only then does the voting pattern of govt officials match the will. Govt represents the rich, showing just how incredibly Fascist this country has become. Understanding that corporations truly run this country, you can only understand that they are the ones to build the tools that will support their industry, which is the suppression of your rights against theirs. And the most effective way to do that is to build a Surveillance Society and call it "Social Networking". What people give away for free becomes the very thing that enslaves them to those in power. ---

    Search results by trackers will always manipulate data to what they think you should be looking at and not what is really important. What is really important too often relies on search results that you may not necessarily agree with, which actually expands your perspective even if you dont agree with it. The expansion of a persons perspective for an idea that is disagreed upon can also come from you gaining the ability to express why the opposed idea does not work. Limiting your search results is really a "Thought Bubble" where people do not have any new ideas to expand their minds. Google tells you what to think and more importantly limits your mind to what you are allowed to think.

    I just edited that post, original part you quoted is still present. Getting rid of fiat can not stop unequal wealth distribution in whole, but it can aid in the survival of this country which is a bit more important, and eliminating fiat currency can greatly aid in reducing unequal wealth distribution. Every country that has relied on fiat currency has collapsed. We are no different.

Simpsons Paradox (Statistical Data Interpretation) This is how any person can misinterpret data. Person also includes Zippy, whether or not "he" is a team of people or a misguided individual who has fallen victim to allowing someone else interpret the data for them and not examining both sides of the data to begin with. Our elected leaders also being human are just as susceptible to "Manipulation by Presentation", or as the MSM does it, "Lying by Exclusion".

    Regarding those hypocrites and those who have abused and mistreated others for their own selfish gain, we too should pray for them, for they have been seduced by evil and have become slaves to their passions, and their souls are being dragged into the pit, especially those including those who have chosen the side of Satan over our Creator. When we think of people like Jay Z who in his millions has turned to the occult, we should have fear for them and pray for their souls and repeat the words of Christ and St. Stephen the first martyr, "forgive them Father for they know not what they do". Our feelings for them should not be one of joy for their sufferings, but rather hope and prayer for their eventual repentance.

    In addition, we as Christians know how this will all end. We have been assured by Christ that upon his return Satan will be destroyed and the darkness and evil in creation will be extinguished forever. But the Satanist are banking on a complete different ending, one in which 'God is destroyed'. This is what I meant when I said that they seek for the death of God. I probably didn't phrase it well the first time.

    I do appreciate the PM. I enjoy your posts and your perspective. I assure you, it is much easier to be a good Christian on the internet then in real life, and for that I ask for your prayers.

    Thank you for the PM! Your inbox is full!

    Of course, when I say that satanists wish for the death of God, I do not mean that God can be destroyed. Rather, that is the lie they believe as worshipers of satan. Granted, God did die, and it was on account of Satan's treachery and the weakness of men which eventually led to Christ on the cross, and on the cross God the Son died and suffered a sinless death in order to vanquish the power of eternal death over men. This is the might and grandeur of the love our Father in Heaven has for his children. So instead of God dying and Satan gaining, the Christian paradox which has turned the world upside down is that God dies, and the power of Satan is rendered powerless. This is the mystery of the cross and why demons can't stand to look upon it.

    I think tyhis is a case (Cop shoots up minivan) where "hard rhetoric" is in order. I was honestly confused by PaulConventionWV's post (Since most of his posts in this thread seem solidly aimed at proving that the pigs were unjust) but its clear that there's at least one hardcore apologist in this thread, and honestly, I think the only way to make him see it is to attack him to the point where he feels worthless. We can't convince him that he's wicked, he's too blinded to see it.

    John Hagee believes in "Dual Covenant Theology." Basically, that means he believes in two methods of salvation, one for the Jews (Through adherence to Old Testament Law) and one for the Gentiles (By Grace Through Faith in Jesus Christ. ) I said that the fact that he believes that proves that he is a child of Satan, which is exactly what Jesus Christ told the self-righteous pharisees in his day, because they believed they could be saved through following the law.

    I was showing bewilderment that that damnable heretic is actually what passes for "Evangelical" now.
