Decide for Yourself, Is Kony 2012 real or Fake?

 I am in no way trying to insinuate that the Story behind Kony is fake nor am i trying to state that the Kony 2012 Project is bad, What i want all people from all sides to see is that in order for us to make a good decision about something, we need to know all the facts. WE ALL HAVE A VOICE AND A CHOICE!!!

Decide for yourself…What should i support? who should i believe? Don’t just follow the crowd. You have a twitter, you have a Facebook or a blog, then use it, not to influence but to inform.

Do you remember Vietnam between 1961 — 1962? It started with a bunch of Advisors going to Vietnam, and we know what history taught us later. KONY 2012 have already made plans to send Advisors into the Country. Have they told you that Advisors are already in that Country? No! Obama has admitted to have said that there are Advisors in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. When you look at that area in Central Africa, you can see that the area they are going into has a vast amount of natural oil and mineral riches. Now tell me, How on Earth did Obama win the Nobel Peace Prize!

Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus…This is for Everyone, all the Catholics, Christians, Muslims, Jews and Any Other Religion, Watch This Video

Religion is a very sensitive topic and its not one that everyone can speak about, but we can all agree that any negative opinion towards any religion is caused by the lack of knowledge for that religion. Here is a video that was sent to me that i would like to share with all of you. Take what you will from it but i hope it gives you the same insights that it gave me…Check it out

Why We Are No Longer The Land of the Free

The list of powers acquired by the U.S. government since 9/11 puts us in rather troubling company.

Assassination of U.S. citizens

President Obama has claimed, as President George W. Bush did before him, the right to order the killing of any citizen considered a terrorist or an abettor of terrorism. Last year, he approved the killing of U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaqi and another citizen under this claimed inherent authority. Last month, administration officials affirmed that power, stating that the president can order the assassination of any citizen whom he considers allied with terrorists. (Nations such as Nigeria, Iran and Syria have been routinely criticized for extrajudicial killings of enemies of the state.)

Indefinite detention

Under the law signed last month, terrorism suspects are to be held by the military; the president also has the authority to indefinitely detain citizens accused of terrorism. While the administration claims that this provision only codified existing law, experts widely contest this view, and the administration has opposed efforts to challenge such authority in federal courts. The government continues to claim the right to strip citizens of legal protections based on its sole discretion. (China recently codified a more limited detention law for its citizens, while countries such as Cambodia have been singled out by the United States for “prolonged detention.”)

Every year, the State Department issues reports on individual rights in other countries, monitoring the passage of restrictive laws and regulations around the world. Iran, for example, has been criticized for denying fair public trials and limiting privacy, while Russia has been taken to task for undermining due process. Other countries have been condemned for the use of secret evidence and torture.

Even as we pass judgment on countries we consider unfree, Americans remain confident that any definition of a free nation must include their own — the land of free. Yet, the laws and practices of the land should shake that confidence. In the decade since Sept. 11, 2001, this country has comprehensively reduced civil liberties in the name of an expanded security state. The most recent example of this was the National Defense Authorization Act, signed Dec. 31, which allows for the indefinite detention of citizens. At what point does the reduction of individual rights in our country change how we define ourselves?

While each new national security power Washington has embraced was controversial when enacted, they are often discussed in isolation. But they don’t operate in isolation. They form a mosaic of powers under which our country could be considered, at least in part, authoritarian. Americans often proclaim our nation as a symbol of freedom to the world while dismissing nations such as Cuba and China as categorically unfree. Yet, objectively, we may be only half right. Those countries do lack basic individual rights such as due process, placing them outside any reasonable definition of “free,” but the United States now has much more in common with such regimes than anyone may like to admit.

These countries also have constitutions that purport to guarantee freedoms and rights. But their governments have broad discretion in denying those rights and few real avenues for challenges by citizens — precisely the problem with the new laws in this country.

Thought!

Always be yourself, don’t ever be afraid to be who you are and forever be strong!!!!
