      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Why Do People Hate America?

I don't hate America, but I hate the ever-watchful government attitude that's taken hold since 9/11, and the people willing to trade privacy for security. I think Ben Franklin had something to say about that. As did George Orwell.

 

Big Brother Gets a Brain

 

 

It started long before 9/11, it was just more incremental; a slow creep, if you will. Government will always seek to increase itself. Those who have a taste for power thirst continually for more. These precepts are things that the authors of the Constitution attempted to disarm when they wrote it.

Very true. I'm just amazed at the sheer unabashed powergrab of the federal government in the name of security in the last 2 years, from the political party that's supposed to be against big government no less. Just goes to show anyone can get drunk with their own power. I just hope the pendulum swings back this way sometime in the near future.
