No offense taken Eagle and I hope you don't take offense when I say this: I have read/seen some of your posts and to me they have a serious conspiracy feel to them. I know, my head is obviously buried in the sand. It's pretty easy to draw conclusions and fit them to your agenda. I guess I just have a hard time with no hard proof.
conspiracy (n.) An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.
conspiracy (n.) A group of conspirators.
conspiracy (n.) An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.
conspiracy theory (n.) A theory seeking to explain a disputed case or matter as a plot by a secret group or alliance rather than an individual or isolated act.
No offense taken. I have had much worse said about me in the past.
I do have to ask you though. What exactly is it that you see as being my agenda?
If you are accusing me of having an agenda of peace and prosperity for all of mankind, then I stand guilty.
If you are accusing me of having an agenda of promoting selflessness over selfishness, then I stand guilty.
If you are accusing me of having an agenda of attempting to remove a criminal element which is in control of our government and using our country to promote their nefarious global agenda, then I stand guilty.
If you are accusing me of having an agenda of pointing out the Truth that if humanity does not change we will become extinct, then for this, I also stand guilty.
Above, the definition of conspiracy theory states:
A theory seeking to explain a disputed case or matter as a plot by a secret group or alliance rather than an individual or isolated act.
I ask you this. How many individual or isolated acts connected to our own government will it take for people such as yourself to start connecting the dots? How many lies will have to be uncovered, all pointing in the same direction will it take for you to follow the bread crumbs.
You say that you have a hard time with no hard proof. There is a mountain of proof. Each outright lie which is exposed is this proof.
I do not trust these people who are now in control of us. Because of this I must question every action that they take. As a matter of fact, it is our duty to question every action that they take. When you compound that with this administrations strong connection with PNAC, and the fact that they have (during their watch) had this "New Pearl Harbour" which has miraculously allowed them to implement their global ambitions....damn...what more do we need? Is this just a conspiracy theory on my part, or is it in fact a conspiracy by a group of the ruling elite?
I don't know. Perhaps you are right. Perhaps I have become so jaded in my views of politics and humanity as a whole that I see something that is not really there at all.
In the end, the Truth will come and slap one of us in the face. I myself would rather err on the side of extreme caution. I do not trust them. They have given me no reason to trust them.
If you are anything like Shane7, which you seem to be in a remarkable way, then the only thing which we are on opposite sides of the spectrum on is in our polar opposite views of how the social issues of this country should be handled by a government.
I will never understand why Shane7 points to social issues which help so many to be the sole destroyer of our nation. These social programs help so many. Without them, I think that things would be much worse. Yes, there are some who abuse the system, but I do not think that a majority do. Yes, this social system should be restructured, but in order to do that, everything would have to be restructured so that any person who is working would have equality. Why should some who are contributing to society not have the right of housing, or medical, or guaranteed food to feed their family? What is the incentive to even try?
With the way that our system is set up now, it is a basic survival of the fittest system with minor social overtones to keep those with very little from outright rebellion against those who have more than they could ever need. Shane7 points at these minor social overtones and screams that this is what is wrong with this country.
With the way this system is set up now, there is no way possible that there can be equality. Not everyone can be at the top. Shane7 thinks that because he has made it to the point he is at, that everyone can. He is wrong. Not everyone can. There are only so many spaces that can be filled in any area of work. Should I feel that because someone is doing a supposed lesser job than I am doing, that they do not deserve to have basic security in their lives because they have not earned this right, so obviously they do not want it enough? Or should I feel that their job is in its own way just as important as my job is in the functioning of society?
Without people like me, there would be no electricity in your house or business. Without the street cleaners, our city's and towns would be a mess. Without teachers, we would have an uneducated society. Without scientists, we would not have many of the advancements which we see before us. Without those in the service sector, we would have no one to check us out at the counters, take our lunch order, or get us a beer.
This list can go on and on for every job out there. You tell me. Which is the more important job?
Even with every job that you can possibly think of, there is only a finite number of slots that can be filled. On top of that, there is an even smaller number of jobs that can be filled that can take care of a persons basic needs. On top of that, there is a smaller number of jobs out there that can ensure that you can have relative comfort. Last but not least, there is a minute number of positions out there that will ensure that you have everything you could possibly desire, with much room to spare.
You are right. I do have an agenda. You are also right. I see corruption in every aspect of our society today.
I guess I better go talk with my dog to see what else she has to say to me. I will have to take off my tinfoil hat for her to be able to communicate with me though. Its the only way I can keep out the conspiracy theories.
This issue of Bush farting or Clintons blowjob is stupid. I do not give a shit about either of these things. There are much bigger issues.
It's pretty easy to draw conclusions and fit them to your agenda.
This works both ways Brother Man. This works both ways.
