The only thing I see as pathetic, is the way your blowing up at these people.

"A BOSTON LEGAL episode has you losing control of your bladder"
Well, I wouldn`t go that far as to say that. It was interesting though.

"3000 plus people died because you bleeding heart, left wing, socialists who believe that GWB is evil incarnate forced the FBI to NOT be able to communicate with the CIA ( the FORD Comission, look it up. The person who created the stupid law sat on the 9/11 comission.)"
No, sorry, I believe most here are people who love freedom, and want to see this country stay that way. And who was it, that put that person on the 9/11 comission?

"The U.S is not the source of all evil. GWB is neither evil nor stupid. He took a stand and no attackes have occured on U.S soil since 9/11."
Your right, the US is not the source of all evil. Just a few of those who own the banking systems are, the same ones who have control of the government.

"11 million people have been freed from rape rooms, acid vats and women have seen that they no longer must fear 200 lashes after being gang raped."
Yep, that is pretty good, now, when are they going to do something that good for this country? That`s strange, we can help other countries like that, but we can`t even take care of our own problems here in this country.

"600,000 Iraqis have NOT died in the war. Many have though and that is a tragedy. But look at what happened after U.S occupation of Japan and Germany. Let me guess... we were evil occupiers then too, right?"
Ok, if not 600,000, how many then? Any life lost in a war is a tragedy, even if it`s only one. I guess evil occupation is in how you look at it. Is there a difference between those countries wanting to force their way of life on others, or us forcing our way of life on them? Sure, we helped win that war, we could have also turned those countries over to someone else to occupy at that time.


"Wake Up? You are right. You need to wake up and thank whatever diety you worship that the U.S put a line in the sand and said "It stops here.""

And we just have to be the worlds police force, don`t we? One day someone is going to put a line in front of us, and say, it stops here, enough of forcing your ways and opinions on others.

SWe are one step away from full blown FASCISM, and many folks, even on this very site, are STILL apathetic to it all.


You need to re-watch the video and wake up my friend. We are not one step away. WE ARE A FASCIST NATION! IT IS HERE! I would ask you to say something in opposition to the party at the next convention if you needed to prove it to yourself... But no you already know what will happen.... I know you. Your one of the people I watch here on ATS. But you need to wake up. You need to stop saying "its almost here, its almost here"

Shed a tear sallow that lump in your throat and accept the ugly truth.

It IS here

Wild video...even if it is from a tv show...really makes me wonder. I emailed a relative of mine.

here in America, we believe things like no matter how bad things may seem, there is just no way that the rich powerful people in charge that dont really need us to be anything but slaves or dead would ever dare harm us. and of course, even after you explain to people who owns the MSM, they still have this collective understand that if they did not see it on the news, it isnt happening or is not true. Everyone here is sheep and it is sickening. From the people in my life, all I can say is that nothing will change until it is too late. I am truly scared for the fate of my country and my offspring's generations and beyond but i am also pretty tired of being labeled a nutjob for simply implying that the government may not be working in our best interest. thank god i dont try telling people how scary i really think the government is.

I felt the same way as you about other people being oblivious to what was going on around them. I showed this video to people like crmanager who were absolutely in a trance and believed that everything the administration has been doing is noble.

I chose to show it to the people who were happy in their ignorance and expected the same response, praising America, defending everything the administration has done, and calling me a conspiracy nut.

But this video did something to the most hardcore skeptics I know. They started asking questions and saying things like, "I didn't know it was that bad"

I think a lot of people are sheep in this country, but its our job as wolves to wake them up! I have been filled with hope the last few days seeing people waking up all around me. Anyone else noticing something similar?

I've noticed. My sister is really AWAKE. Anytime I bring up Bush or Cheney her blood boils. Great post. A few years ago I wasn't paying much attention to what was REALLY happening in this country. Right now I am beginning to understand.

Never be scared to stand up for something you truly believe in. If you have done your own research and made your own conclusions, who cares what other people think. These are usually the same people who are fed information by Fox News and base their whole reality on what other people tell them is truth!

Keep fighting the good fight!

I'm an American combat Veteran and I agree with you wholeheartedly. I love my country, but I hate my government. And the time is very near when the blood of Patriots and tyrants will be spilled in large quantities.

Our government is so far out of control that I'm not even sure what should be done about it. I don't blame anyone from any country for hating America. It seems as if we make certain rules for other countries but don't see the need to follow them ourselves. We're trying to create governments around the world when we can't even control our own.

I spent a lot of years in the military, and at no time was I actually defending the United States. We were always off defending our "interests", which means money.

I'm sick to death about what my country has become politically.

And, to whoever reads this, please don't flame me with the old "Love it or Leave it" crap. I've seen too much around the world first-hand to even listen to that.

I hear you man. I could never understand how we could always afford to stick our noses in other countries affairs and spend money to rebuild it after we level it, but yet we can`t even take care of our own economic problems within our borders. Humm, we have money for them, but not for ourselves.

Right on. The infrastructure of the US is falling apart, we will have no money for social security in a few years, theres a mortgage crisis, our veterans are not getting the care or compensation they deserve, the value of the dollar is a joke, the stock market is in trouble, and the national debt is DISGUSTING!

Yet despite all this we can borrow billions from china every day to blow up and repair a country that posed NO threat to us whatsoever. No WMD's, No Al Qaeda link, and no declaration of war by congress!

WHY are we still killing and loosing American lives half way across the world when they could be protecting our borders and putting the money into our country to solve our problems?
