I thought we were sheep?
Now we're cows?


This thread is not the place for such talk anyway.
It was a well intentioned message from a member in England...wishing his American friends a lovely holiday.
Some of my friends here, wished me a Happy Canada Day.
For us cow/sheep/kangaroos....it is a day off work, a day to relax with friends and family...eat some hot dogs, drink a beer...and set off some fireworks.

There are plenty of other threads to vent your frustration with TPTB.
Now, I suggest you just keep calm and carry on.

The BS in America is no different to the BS in the UK, or in any other nation which has an identity of its own, to set it apart from other locations on the planet. There are people in every nation who do bad things for bad reasons, people who gain power, prestige, and status beyond that of their fellow countrymen, and America is no exception. However, one must learn to separate the behaviour of a government full of such persons, from the wishes and needs of the citizens of the nation in question.

The brainwashing you see happening in the US is happening all over the world, from various governments toward their people. The Iranian government, the Chinese government, the Japanese government and the UK government all do it to lesser or greater degrees, as do all the others, and to think that the US is alone in that is such a vast fallacy, that for the thought to cross your mind, means that you simply have not been paying attention. While I cannot blame you, for surely, the state of affairs in the world is a deeply depressing matter to cogitate upon, it would be wise if in future, you took a broader view of things, before uttering with such venom toward your countrymen.

Blaming the people for being brainwashed by government is no more sensible than blaming the victim of a random sniper for standing at the wrong bus shelter, and thusly having their brain pan emptied at a thousand yards.

You judge them far too harshly, and by a measure you have concocted while you, yourself, are a victim of one level of the multifaceted brainwashing that is occurring. The level you are at, has allowed you to take on a superior attitude toward your fellow countrymen, as if you have answers that they do not. This is, one could reasonably suggest, is merely another bit of psycho conditioning, a tool that levers countrymen against one another, and is not part of any solution worth a damn, to any problem worth solving.

In addition, I should point out that whilst "busy drinking" I have contemplated the hearts of stars, the form and function of black holes, the staggering breadth of the contents of our galaxy, never mind the mind buggering fact of its insignificant scale when compared to that of the wider universe. I have mentally sifted the news medias output since being a member here, and formed my very own opinion based on fact and morality in combination, rather than tub thumping and rabble rousing. I have written poems, and thought deeply about the affairs of mankind, considered the sicknesses of the human mind, the plagues which affect the spirit, the illnesses which afflict societies from the top down, and the giant hypocrisies which haunt us now, and will haunt our children, and our children's children.

I have developed ideas which could save people's homes in the event of natural disasters, I have suggested ideas for helping clean up the space around our planet, and in so doing collect enough debris to build a space station many times the size of the ISS, and power it too. I have done many things while drinking, of which I am not proud, but not one of those things have I done while on this website. I love this website, and I love its membership, and in thanks for their existence, I choose to make my contributions as full, and as positive as possible, because the membership deserve that level of interaction from me, by way of having provided this wonderful place to meet and share knowledge.

It is, therefore, somewhat unfortunate that you assume that my pastimes have any effect what so ever on my ability to contemplate the issues of the day. Even with rum in my belly, my mind is always working on something abstracted from my personal life, indeed, sometimes that makes it easier to imagine my fellow human beings complexly, and that is something I believe you could benefit from.

Thanks for the tip of the hat True Brit. Your kind words are appreciated. I eat this worm, at the bottom of this bottle of Mescal, in your honor. I have had way too much fun today, and the real celebration doesn't start until...well I guess it's today, now. Jeez...I have to go grab a nap.

I have not assumed as you have claimed, I realise that other countries assume the same. I just gather pause, when I remember Independence Day. It's different for me, and I would like to share, my experience. No Offense meant, just being myself and may God Bless.a reply to: TrueBrit

Thanks for that TrueBrit, you're a good man and a friend to freedom loving Americans from sea to shining sea.

Regardless of America's current callous capitulations I thoroughly plan on having a great day partying with my family and friends. What else can I do? Sure as hell not going to mope around the house whining about something I could never change alone. The nations problems will keep, methinks.

What happened? GLP doing random IP bans again...

Oh wait, I see you're trolling to get your posts up. Well, good work on looking like a total goon.

Oh...

And happy fourth of July!!!

*lights off a whistling Pete*

Dammit! Why the hell do they make these things!

Too bad for TrueBritt, that he is too busy drinking too realise the true BS in America. People are brainwashed, and worship the flag, that enslaves others and themselves. I know that is deeeeeeep. a reply to: TrueBrit



YES, you did assume as claimed.

If you want anyone to listen to your story, you shouldn't start off on the wrong foot by calling us sheeple, cows or brainwashed.
I sense you starting to back pedal now, which is likely a good idea.

Not backing down from anything, You and I have a path, and it is ordained by the one and true. If you want to consider what I have said as an act of war, so be it. But this in not the intent on my part, we have just crossed paths in an uncommon way. But do not take these words in a cowardly fashion. I am Awaken!!! and C

The fact is CagliostroTheGreat, that you can love a place very much, but still need to take time for yourself in joy. If one loses that ability, to take a step back and enjoy the freedoms remaining to one, then the forces ranged against freedom merely score another victory. Good on you for taking the time!

I think you might be more comfortable in this thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

This is 'General Chit-Chat'.

We haven't "crossed paths in an uncommon way"...we are both participating in a thread. However, your replies are not pertinent to the OP, so I suggest you switch over to one that is more suitable.

Thanks TrueBrit.
That's very thoughtful of you.


It's true that my government is a pain in the arse, but I am still grateful to have been born here.
I'm allowed to be myself in the USA. A lot of people are not so fortunate.

"behavior of your government" its nice to see someone understands we the people are not what our government portrays...at least the majority.

Thank you , I wish you well in the UK, we could all use a brake and a pint.
