Yes... as you can tell from my avatar, I'm fatigued with frustration.
And yes... as you can see from the new logo top-and-left on the board, we are in distress... we need help.
Despite brief moments of hope, as seen in KrazyJethro's brilliant thread, Disgusting
election taints ATS... Stand up and shut up!
, I feel the strings of the expert puppet masters at play on ATS once again.
Way back in March of 2005, I wrote: Dark Days. (The black band on ATS)
, in response to
a similar graphic display of distress
Make no mistake, you are being expertly controlled. Even here, in this venue that should be beyond the puppet masters' strings, we have
succumbed to the subtle manipulations of thought and reason. Instead of looking in agner toward the puppet masters, you yell at the puppets.
So here we are again, suffering the daily madness of the The Quadrennial Exploitation Of The Moronic Masses
, otherwise known as the U.S.
Presidential Election Season.
Who would have thought, in this bastion of enablement that brings unimaginably diverse people together in an environment of civil and open debate with
a mandate of fierce focus on issues and not each other, that we'd encounter the choreographed flotsam of manipulation. Here, right here on our
beloved AboveTopSecret.com, we see...
-*- mindless repetition of divisive spoon-fed political talking points
-*- patently false information about candidates presented as truth
-*- exaggerated disaster scenarios if one or the other is elected
-*- shameful racism
-*- shameful bastardization of candidate names
-*- shameful focus on personalities instead of issues
-*- pathetic fear mongering
-*- embarrassingly little focus on real, important, vital issues
With this type of activity here on AboveTopSecret.com, the only thing it's proving is that, nearly four years after I first wrote about it,
Make no mistake, "they"
want you to be focusing on bickering over pointless and utterly meaningless personality disputes.
have a vested stake in an absolute 50/50 split of "conservative" and "liberal" mindsets across the nation.
want to ensure your presidential choices are down to the lesser of two evils.
are pulling your strings, guiding your thoughts, and directing your words.
If you/we/us don't snap out of this mental fog brought on by The Quadrennial Exploitation Of The Moronic Masses
, there can be no hope.
Stop bickering about divisive ideological abstract positions for the sake of bickering about abstract ideology, and pick up a real issue and examine
it with cold honest neutrality.
Stop being so overwhelmingly focused on which "side" wins an election that you can't remember that there are no "sides," only the singular future
we build from the legacy of great men
If neither of the two choices presented to you by "them"
thrill you, make it known. Shout it. Tell it. Maybe there are more like
And most importantly, cut the damn strings, and find your own original voice... and deny ignorance, please!
