The American Police State Targets the Most Vulnerable Members of Society for Harassment, Threats, and Extortion

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

This Homeless USMC Vet Got to Experience the Rising American Police State First Hand:

(Matt Agorist) The hot air and lip service paid to veterans by the blowhards in D.C., seems to be just that, hot air and lip service. Nearly 60,000 men and woman who’ve served their country are homeless and being persecuted by the same system they pledged to maintain.

A video submitted to The Free Thought Project Friday by homeless veteran Aaron Colyer, shows the repugnant reality that is the American Police State.

Colyer, a 4 year veteran of the USMC and Army National Gaurd, tells The Free Thought Project his recount of America’s new war on the right to exist.

My Commentary: Keep dutifully paying your “fair share” of taxes, America. 😉 This way, the State can continue hiring mercenaries in your behalf to harass and ticket the homeless! And, by extorting the destitute for cash they don’t have, these vulnerable members of society will be forced to either go into hiding or to relocate, otherwise they will eventually face jail time for failure to pay the State’s “victimless ‘crime’ extortion fee” (AKA “a fine”)!

Problem solved! 🙂

How very forward-thinking and progressive! Bravo, America!

Discussing the Film, “Full Metal Jacket”

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I added information to the “movies I’ve watched” section of my profile…

Rayn: added Full Metal Jacket to movie’s she’s watched.

Brian J.: This is one of the more disappointing war films that I’ve seen, and it’s one of Kubrick’s weakest achievements. But it’s still a good film. The first half is a master class of filmmaking. But the second half felt like “Apocalypse Now” for stupid people. If you want great war films, I recommend “The Thin Red Line”, “Apocalypse Now”, and “Platoon.”

Rayn: There is definitely a large shift in pace between the first and second half of the film, but I still enjoy the piece as a whole, and will never turn down an opportunity to give it a watch, even over those others! 🙂

Brian J.: I just wasn’t impressed with the performances in the second half. And it felt like a lesser version of “Platoon.” But that first half is perfect.
