I'm positive our good friend George Carlin was on the mark
when being a great promoter of peace he came to terms
with reality. It's going to take bloodshed and he meant
theirs.. Meaning the elite. Massive bloodshed.
They understand nothing less.


This is the problem. The game is afoot. They want you to hate them. They want to control how you bring them down. They think they can usher in the new system and rule it too. Only this time, they will have your love as well as all the power and control.

Look at so-called revolutionaries like Russell Brand. He has a wide following, and they let him get away with fomenting rebellion because he moves their end of the game quite nicely.

You may be fighting for the right cause, but their game is the same. Which rebellions ends up on top?

I agree one hundred percent my lady. Just spouting off from a more
worldly position this time round. In admission to still being human
and still a part of this world perfection still unachieved. Guess it just
really bothers me watch'n it all play out being so ineffectual. It only lasts
for the length of the thread tho.

You think I'm bad? You do huh?

No, not at all. I want to fight just as much as you do, but I don't see how we win it.

And therein lies the problem. Or part of it, at any rate.

A whole lot better, and much more boring, methinks.

Mickey Mouse still has his magic wand. Vote for him and he will use it to make all your problems disappear!!!
I'm serious write in a cartoon character if you can't bring yourself to vote for any of the options presented to ya....
a no vote signals apathy, a cartoon character might signal just plain discontent with the entire process especially if a cartoon character got enough votes to win!!!

When the vote comes down to evil, we have to move on to the next qualifier:
Who leaves the most of my earnings inside my wallet where they belong after I get the paycheck I worked hard for?

Money may be the root of all evil, but it's a pretty damn sturdy root, IMO.

Imagine a world where everyone does exactly as they do now
with the absolute absence of a currency of any kind.

And it's the love of money burd! The love of money is the root of all evil.

I will never, ever vote for a republican again after bush. and well, the dems lost favor with me before that. There might be some in the independent and other parties worth a grain of sand, but well, they aren't that well publicized and really, unless they've left a trail to easily follow to know what their past actions were, well, I've kind of accepted that what you are hearing while they are running is all a bunch of lies anyways.

If that were the case, I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now. I'd be a few hundred miles into the Alaskan bush and *might* expose myself to civilization once or twice a year at best. My paycheck is pretty much the only tether I have to society. When it breaks or gets frayed enough to make this an inconvenience, I'll be gone baby, gone.

I guess I'm old school maybe but, for me, if someone thinks
nothing of lying? He admits that he can not achieve the same
goal with the truth. They've sold you on the lying politician.
Made him look cool and slick.

But it ain't no joke at all.

Money is no more evil than your own labors are because that is, in the end, what the money represents. Money only becomes evil when you start to love it and the pursuit of it more than you love the spiritual. After all, money is of the world, and we are supposed to put the spirit above the world in our hearts.

The trap of money is that people get lured into chasing it like it's the only thing they need.

I wish It could say that.

I wish I knew how I'd provide for my 4-year-old without the paycheck. If I could figure that out, I'd be in the same boat.

This...is actually a grand idea, IMO. Only, if Mickey mouse does become prez, what then?meh, can't be much worse than it is now. He has my vote! Mickey Mouse for president 2016. We need bumper stickers...
