HELP! I DON’T UNDERSTAND
I guess I just am going to have to put out a request for someone to set me straight here. I’m really confused about some things and feel very frustrated about it.
Freeacre and I watched a documentary on the Afghanistan and Iraq war going on, it’s history and what led up to the invasions, “No End In Sight”. I felt that the information provided was factual and without propaganda value particularly.
I am left with the general question; what the hell is going on? Actually I have had this question for some time. It appears that there are 4 possible answers. If there are more, please set me straight.
- This group of people running our government are incompetent as hell and the people above them with a master plan are incompetent also.
- The stated aims of this government are not the same as the real aims.
- All that has been going on for the last 16 years is actually a master plan by someone or some group, including the complete cluster fuck that is
and Afghanistan , the complete destruction of the American economy, the militarizing of the country and world domination. Iraq
- Absolutely no one or no group is any longer in control of anything.
If number 1 is correct, folks, they can’t get anything right. Everything they do is contrary to stated goals and any common sense by anyone with an IQ over a fence post. If this country decided to revolt, they couldn’t put down a Boy Scout troop determined to take action. If 2 million dissidents were fielded, they would be bumfucked. Let’s see here, hmmm, striking the keys of my handy dandy Japanese hand calculator with 165 functions that is now 15 years old, I notice that would be .6% or so of our population. Holy cow. Now there is a figure I can take home. Let’s see now, we have approximately 160,000 troops in Iraq, out of 1.5 million total worldwide, and Iraq had a population of 23,000,000 before we started to kill everyone we could get in our sights or just by bombing. Add to that the Blackwater contractors of about 50,000 carrying machine guns and what seem to be 13,000 troops from the coalition that Georgie put together. That means we had at the beginning, one soldier for every 103 citizens of the country. A country that from a technological perspective is somewhere between 1650 and 1920 in technological development. What the Hell? We have in this country a total police force of approximately 1.5 million. If we brought home every soldier from Iraq, including all Blackwater mafia troops, and put them all on insurrection suppression in the U.S., and taking for granted that every soldier, Blackwater thug and police officer did their job, that means we would have a total of 1.7 mil troops or one soldier for every 175 citizens covering a land territory approximately 20 times the size of Iraq. If we did what Ron Paul wants to do, bring all the troops home, every one of them, we would end up with about 3.5 million troops and police and Blackwater thugs. That’s one trooper for every 100 citizens now, and they have to cover 20 times the land area of
Number 2 is just as likely as number 1 and 3 I think. What we were told at election time and during the administrations smoke blown up our collective asses at news conferences has nothing to do with what is going on. Now let’s take a look at the possible agendas.
- They seem to be determined to crash our economy
- They seem determined to make everyone else in the world hate our guts
- They seem to be determined to utterly destroy our land base
- They seem determined to make us all subservient, or as an extension, kill most of us off.
- They seem determined to rule the world.
I imagine you can add more to the list, but that is enough of my own paranoia.
Number 3 is an extension of number 2, just different power players making the decision.
I sure would hope number 4 is the correct answer. If no one is in control, we have a chance of fighting back, or at least side stepping the worst coming down.
So ok people, step right up and let me know the truth of the matter. End my confusion so I can go back to a normal life.
Now, let’s take a brief look at the primaries. At this point, with what information I garner from the popular media and the internet, it sure appears to me that this is a truly rigged election, and everyone but Ron Paul and Kuchenick are playing it. At least in this area, on the popular media, mostly TV, there is no mention of the two men no matter how he does in the polls or the primary process. On the TV, I hear virtually no discussion of what any of the candidates advocate and or stand for. The pundits and talking heads are on the national news gossiping about them, giving no real information about anything. The consequence of these omissions is that we are not having any real elections at all this time around. While I admit that I border on indifference on this election, simply for the above reasons, it sure appears to me that it simply makes no difference who, of the front runners, from either party get the nominations. Those that just might make a difference are opposed by the elite, at all levels of society, and they aren’t going to have a chance. On top of that, it also appears that the vote counting is very seriously flawed and is not a reflection of the popular vote.
We are not yet in a position in this country to vote for a person who advocates a really big revolution against business as usual. So, if there is any push toward that, the elites will quench it post haste. Kuchenick and Paul are on the receiving end of this and the citizens be damned. Hillery and Obama certainly aren't going change much, despite the tidbits they throw out. Neither of them have even hinted that we need to end the world domination plans and dissemble the empire building.
Again, it is all about money. If a political player wants to get anything but gossip out there, they have to pay for it, and the American public seems more interested in voting on gossip issues rather than real policy. Any real effort to have a popular representative government looks long gone to me.
We are being royally screwed blue, every morning. Every morning when we get up, the elite are asking if it was good for us too. Any answer that indicates less than satisfaction is ignored or put down. This is not a good tactic at all. Somewhere down the line, there will be revolt. We are so toasted.
