I wanted to bring this up as a topic of discussion here at ATS. I was recently at a small gathering of friends ... i wouldn't call it a party
because i went to college, and this wasn't a party. More of a gathering with some drinks...anyway, I usually don't do this ... but i started to
bring up some of the current events that are shaping this great country. I was dumbfounded to learn that these normal 25-30 group of people had no
clue what was actually going on. They thought that the Michael Jackson Case was the most important thing going on.
I was even further amazed when i asked some simple questions, and these were their responses;
ME: Did you know that Congress is considering a New Bill that would make it crime, if you didn't report someone who was smoking weed. And that the
Crime of Not Reporting your friends, neighbors, and own family members, would be a mandatory 2 year sentence in Federal Prison???
Person 1: Thats stupid, how would they even enforce that new law?
ME: Well thats a good question, I have my own theory on how they are going to enforce it. I think that once the Govt. re-considers implementing a
National Draft for their war with Iran, that anyone who is verbally opposing the president and or the draft would be lock-ed up for 2 years under the
guise of this new law.
Person 2: They aren't going to do a draft, that was a big thing during the election and Bush said there wouldn't be a draft... i don't know where
you get your information from.
Person 1: So what, I'll just move to California where i can smoke weed with a persciption from my doctor.
ME: Actually, The Federal Govt. just OverRuled California's medical marajauna policy. It is now illegal for Cancer Patients in California to smoke
Person 1: They can't do that... Even if that is true, I think that they would have to pass that law in order to make it legal!
thats what she said... and she is in college! Then they started talking about the Michael Jackson Case ... and argueing over his guilt and innocence.
They both knew exactly all of the details about the Case, but didn't have a clue what was going on in the world.
Person 2: Maybe it would be good to lock-up all of the druggies. This way there would be a lot less crime in the world. We have too many people in
this world... it would be a lot better if there were less.
Me: Actually, you might get your wish soon. They say the Bird Flu will catch on soon, and that it would be the next pandemic killing 1/3 of the
worlds population if left uncontrolled.
Person 2: No way. Its not going to kill 1/3 of the population. If it was that bad we would be hearing a lot more about it... Isn't this in Africa?
ME: Actually its in Asia, and there have been cases of Human to Human transmission and a greater than 40% fatality rate if you catch this flu.
Person 1: Didn't they tell us not to get a flu shot this year... It won't be that bad, only old people and little children are at risk. They would
have this information all over the news if this was a real threat.
Me: Why do you think it would be on the news? Do you honestly believe that the Higher Ups would tell you this, if they knew it would create a panic.
Did you know that the USA reported another case of Mad Cow Disease this week?
Person 1: No.
Me: You see what I mean. When you watch the news they are not telling you the really important things that you need to know. They are trying to
lull you into a false sense of security so you will feel good and go spend money. They have an agenda, and wouldn't say anything that would make you
stop spending money.
It couldn't believe how out of the loop these people were. Is the American Public Really only concerned about their own Materialistic Things, and
unwilling to pay attention to the world around them?
Is this the reason why Capitalism is supposed to work so well, because the people no longer focus on the important things in the world ... they focus
on their House, Cars, Movies, TV, Sports, Celebity News ... Its all a distraction! Wake Up!
Please post you own experiences with the SHEEPLE. They are everywhere!
How can we Wake the Sheeple Up?
