Have to agree here with Ownification.
What is it about the American psyche that immediately plunges into seige mode based on wild conjecture and too many movies ?
Then the 'I got mah gun, come an git me, ya hear ' comments from all the would-be gunslingers.
It's as if American are constantly poised on a trigger -- constantly looking for boogie-men in the woods --- constantly seeing enemies --- constantly
waiting for the 'final showdown' and other movie-inspired dramas.
It only takes one sensationalistic comment to trigger these responses and then the whole drama escalates to the point of comedy in a matter of
Do Americans WANT a showdown with their government ? Is that it ?
Do Americans WANT battle in the streets agains their own troops and government ?
Do they want to see their kids bleeding in gutters ?
Do they want to go out themselves in a hail of bullets ?
Do they want their country to end up a smoking pile, sitting there waiting for calmer nations to clean it up and take it ?
Is that what this is all about ?
It emerges in so many posts. And those posts are selected by people wallowing in paranoia and eager to spread it through this and other forums.
Talk about knee-jerk reactionaries. Americans take the cake. And it spreads like a bush-fire, lighting the imaginations of those who just can't
stand the thought of having to live an ordinary life and would prefer ANYthing other than accept their own ordinariness.
So you really believe that the government of the US is going to bring in half a million troops for the express purpose of killing lots of Americans
and herding the rest into bloody FEMA camps, where they'd have to be guarded, fed, housed, clothed, medicated, educated, huh ? You REALLY believe
Who the hell would want to take total responsibility for a couple of hundred million Americans, around the clock ? Ask yourself that.
You couldn't get even your favourite boogie-men (those 'Commie Russkies' for example) to take on the task, even if you paid them to do it. NO-one
wants to deal with hundreds of millions of Americans, NO-one. They are a headache. If this thread is any indication, Americans have the mental age
of 8 year olds, thanks to their steady diet of 'catastrophe' movie and tv shows, and End of World shows and rampant paranoia, trigger-happy,
hysterical response to the slightest thing. And they're all such HEROES, right ? Listen to them in this and other threads. To hear them, you'd
think they were Wild West gunslingers, instead of soft-bellied internet and pizza addicts.
So come on. Get a grip. This is what happens when a compromised government allows its population to be hammered from birth up with 'Holycost'
propaganda. They grow in body, but their brains have been programmed to forever be waiting for the Big Event -- that never comes.
Look at it this way, if they kill half of you and cram the rest into FEMA camps (as if ) then your lives become 'their' problem, right ? You're
going to die anyway (just like everyone else) and until you do, they'll have to feed you, house you, etc. WHO on earth would want that task ? Ask
Obviously it would be far easier from their point of view to leave you exactly as you are --- consuming, spending, paying for your own food and
Nope. Sorry. No-one is interested in 'taking over' the US population.
Would you want to ?
What would you gain ?
That's right. Nothing. You're not a valuable commodity unless you're spending, eating, buying, using, breeding, consuming and panicking.
