    2013, Texas was #23 for murder, #17 for violent and #10 for property - so things are improving but still not what one might reasonably call "low crime rates"

    Militaries have been successfully used against a domestic populace since historical times.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I don't think they are, not most of them anyway. In fact, I wonder if Texans are thinking about all this as a little reminder of their independence.

    Anyway, very funny photo here, somebody holding a sign that reads "No Gestapo in Bastropo." I can't help but think of Adam Sandler as "Opera Man": Abbott's call to monitor Army exercises draws criticism - Houston Chronicle

    Re: Texas governor orders troops to 'monitor' Jade Helm

    Here's a list from Talking Points Memo on the craziness factor in regards to Jade Helm

    1. The operation is a cover for the implementation of martial law
    2. DOJ, United Nations plan to seize Americans' guns
    3. The military plans to imprison political dissidents
    4. The military plans to eliminate citizens who've made the "red list"
    5. The military has occupied shuttered Wal-Marts
    6. The operation will coincide with a false flag economic collapse


    Do you know the real meaning of Jade Helm? "Joint Assistant for Deployment and Execution" - "Homeland Eradication of Local Militants", although I did see somewhere on a blog a better one for Helm: "Hysterical Embarrassing Lunatic's Mendacity"

    For even more craziness, check out this site: Rapture In The Air Now

    Re: Texas governor orders troops to 'monitor' Jade Helm

    There was an old '60's era adage, but my memory of it might be paraphrase: "Demonizing an enemy empowers the powerless."

    Those in party-positions & elected office can only remain there through the will of the people - their power flows from us.

    When they have little to offer (they're powerless, devoid of ideas, or have ulterior motive), they demonize an opponent thereby instilling fear in their followers, rushing in to "save them from the demonic unthinkable"! And this is how they seize & remain in power, even if they themselves are innately powerless & ineffectual.

    It works well enough, and while it's my opinion that one party employs this tactic a bit more than the other, they both are skilled masters in this regard, along with those in appointed office as well (police & safety issues seem especially ripe for this tactic, along with anything relating to children).

    If it didn't work, it wouldn't be done (sadly).
