Hey Liba, I’d say my response wouldn’t be much different than last time. There are a lot more powerful forces at work than Mexicans crossing the border or dole handed out to lazy people. Free trade has opened up things in a way that it is inevitable that labour intensive work is shipped overseas. Technology is automating so many things there will be simply less and less jobs as we move forward, and some sort of crazy revolution will happen. There was the industrial revolution, then information, and now maybe self sufficient. The “economy” which employs people will also crumble, because that economy is based on employing people by consumption, but if robots and computers become the employees, something will have to crack. Because if people don’t have jobs, they don’t have money to buy stuff to employ others. We therefore need to move towards self-sufficiency. The Zeitgeist movement explains it well (the reading is easier than the movie). Some French guy came up with the concept decades ago. Anyway, several scenarios can be played out and I hope for a calm transition, but things just can’t keep going like this. They are printing money like crazy and the system will burst. The next financial crisis could be totally devastating. Anyway, I understand what they guy is whining about, but it’s just more hate mail directed at people and the people are not the problem but the entire system. We are able to live together in harmony, grow our foods, be totally self-sustaining, support one another like Jesus preached. If I had any retirement savings I’d convert a lot of it to hard assets. George Soros and other major investors have half their wealth in gold at the moment, and there is a reason for that. Have a good one.
oh yah, and the guy mentioned he doesn’t mind a black president but suggested that Condolesa Rice is a better option. This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about and he’s just the standard right wing mousepiece which depends on the mainstream media for news. I used to believe in that and religiously watch cnn, but after 911, like many other questions, something seemed odd. When I received an email explaining all sorts of bizarre events surrounding this, it made total sense, and from around that time I started taking greater interest in alternative and independent sources of news. Since then I have read so much it is astounding what is going on. The mainstream media is simply a mouthpiece for the captains of industry. It’s a big advertisement to convince you to go to work and consume your income. 96% of it is owned by 6 companies, and they are increasingly consolidating. The world corporations are slowly approaching a dot and the big whigs at the top design things to manage humanity like cattle. Okay, for example. This is important. You can look up “third tower” or “building 7″ and find all sorts of pictures, documentaries and websites on it. I saw one documentary and I said to myself, “Now THIS I want to verify.” For some things I purposefully make the effort to research and verify myself, and this one seemed warranted. Apparently the BBC filmed some reporter in New York who was reporting how building 7 also collapsed, just like the two towers. Meanwhile, IT WAS STILL STANDING IN THE BACKGROUND!!!! For about 20 minutes or something, simply because they got the time zone thing wrong and made a mistake. When someone at the studio clued in they cut her off and then it went back to the UK anchor man, who said, “Seems like we lost her…” blab blab. Okay, maybe what I saw was fabricated, so I dug further and it eventually lead me to BBC’s explanation. I read this on BBC’s website. They were asked for the footage and they explained that, not because of some crazy conspiracy theory, but only because they are a bit disorganized did they lose that tape. Please, I see BBC documentaries and they must have millions of bits of shots very carefully organized in their computer system. I mean, reading that from BBC’s own website is an official confession of guilt, as far as I’m concerned. And what is the third tower? Amazingly most people don’t even know about it. It also crumbled to the ground, freefall style, when only a corner of the building was on fire. All buildings surrounding the two towers were a bit crushed but remained standing. So if the great free press of the US, the supposed torchlight of freedom and democracy, don’t you find it rather odd that something as utterly BLATANT as this is not all over the news? That in itself is proof that they are puppets of profits, as are the presidents. One is red, one is blue, one stands more for tradition, shit, are we talking about the difference between a can of coca cola and pepsi? I think so.
These things can all be verified, but it seems to me that most people would rather just not concern themselves with these troublesome issues of truth and rather believe that the “economy will keep going” and so on. So I can only hope that more people will be brave enough to start opening up the can of worms, to see what is really happening around us. I truly believe we are in extraordinary times. I felt it my entire life, and one of the big reasons I never settled down. Since an early age I have always felt I should not get married because they may want to torture my family to make me comply. I have always been a shit disturber and it is the core of my being, and I feel it is conviction from God. I grew up believing in God, because it was natural for me, in spite of the fact I was surrounded by aethiests. It was nothing I really considered, cause it was like contemplating on the fact you are breathing. What’s the point? Anyway, I know I may sound like a raving conspiracy theorist, but I must say that whoever has disagreed with me would refuse to research it themselves. It is just more comfortable to believe in the big lie on TV, that the government cares for you and the very profitable wars that are being fought are for your own protection. It is very sad what is happening in the world today in the name of the 1% to maintain its grip over cattle humanity. Did you know that in WW2 the civilian casualty rate was something like 35%, but with advanced technology this has been increasing, such that now 90% of casualties in Afghanistan are civilians. Children, pregnant women, whatever. I mean, they’ll bomb an entire wedding just because they think some terrorists could be there. Who is the greatest terrorist in the world? The US of course, so the captains of industry can get fatter, keep their thumb on humanity, and parcel up the rest of the world in their agenda or one world government, new world order and so on. This “New World Order” is written in many official documents as an agenda, and spoken from the lips of presidents and high officials. Very interesting times we are living in, but if it cracks, like the bible says, “There will be nowhere to run.” My neighbour female friend was driving about 35km/hr on her bike and some thais stepped out and tried to grab her purse, causing her to have an accident and bruise her knee. I’m afraid people everywhere will go berserk if currencies or system crashes. Anyway, sorry for blabbing, but this subject is really close to me and interests me. There is just too much to write about, but the above point I think is blatant enough to hopefully get people to start asking questions and not just prefer to believe in the system, because it is easier. Anyway, that’s my take on it and that email is just more misinformation which does no other good than to foster hatred between people. Nothing good comes out of that than anger and resentment for other groups of people, blaming them. The real blame is somewhere else entirely, and the puppeteers manipulate humanity precisely because they generate hatred. Divide and conquer. I’ve read some articles. It is a specific science and makes sense. If someone is dressed like a local across a border and throws a grenade and is reported on tv, how do you really know it was a local. Humanity can be easily manipulated in this fashion. I see how they are doing it. They are very smart, and ruthless. I know it sounds like conspiracy lunacy, but I have the advantage of once religiously believing in CNN but then exposing myself to independent sources, for years. It’s like arguing against the bible without reading it or giving Jesus a try. In short, the people who do not want to believe any of this always start off with the same logic: “I refuse to believe any of this because then I would be forced to believe that everything I currently believe in is questionable, and that is an uncomfortable feeling.” So they do not even want to peak into the can of worms. They turn a blind eye and refuse to investigate anything, claiming they are busy and so on. But at least I convinced a few people to admit that. Like one guy said, “Yup, I saw a plane fly across the sky, and then it started spewing out a white chemtrail looking thing, for a while, then it stopped. The white chemtrail dispersed slowly, but I don’t believe it!” Holding and pointing up his finger, a proud grin on his face. So I asked him if he at least admitted that he chooses not to believe any of that, and he proudly held up his finger and grinned the same. He just didn’t want to bother himself with these details, like most people, and that is why humanity is managed like cattle.
