this is nothing but a bunch of unsubstantiated fringe theories.

the israel stuff in particular points you out as having no real focus, but simply believing that anyone who doesn't happen to share your political views is stupid or evil. this is a delusion.

it just so happens that a lot of ATSers do share these opinions, hence the back-patting, you-go-girl nature of the first couple of pages of replies in this thread.

of course, i'll be decried as stupid, or as a government agent or some such bull, because of this post, even though I am neither pro-U.S. or pro-Israel. I am an individual, and I believe in reasoning out one's own opinions instead of forming them as emotional knee-jerk responses to political stimuli.

truth be told, I am an Anarchist, in the purest sense of the word; I believe that statism is destructive, and plays into (or may even be a product of) the violent xenophobia which primates in general exhibit so strongly.

Furthermore, as an individual who lives far, far away from Israel and has no friends, relatives or financial interests within or near its borders, I do not give a rat's ass one way or the other what goes on there on a daily basis. Neither do I claim to know what is best for them, or for their neighbors.

But to claim that a person is inherently stupid because of some minor political belief which they do or do not hold is unreasonable, and demonstrative of a mind which makes broad judgements based on narrow segments of fact.

Let's narrow this down:
Anyone who's signature is "I'll be ok, once Palin gets in office." is stupid. Palin???Really??? That's real stupid.
Anyone who's signature is "Obama is Jim Jones(mk2), not JFK."
is stupid. Somehow ALL who suport this Pres. are following JJ?
Real Stupid!!
Funny how the ones who say those who follow O are brainwashed are from the other side of the isle. Maybe your personal hero GWB was such an evil washout you can't stand it?

This thread is another example for why I do not like political debate on ATS. It's too damn 1 sided and definitive.

I agree with everything except the part about the Middle East (Muslims) wanting to destroy America. There are millions (91 million/7% of all Muslims) of Muslims who DO want America to fail. There are terrorists who are Muslim.

The problem is our strategy. I don't think war is the solution. We should do more boycotting. Boycott Saudi Arabia and any other Muslim nation that teaches Radical Islam.

I also think we should boycott China, until they understand what human rights are. I'm mentioning China so I don't look like I'm prejudice against Muslims. I'm prejudice against nations who don't have basic human rights for its citizens, which are usually Communist or Islamic.

Since I admit to not having read every post on this topic, I realize I run the risk of asking a question already answered. However, that being said I want to know what do we do about it? There is no question in my mind that a lot of people are uneducated (not "stupid") about many of the things mentioned here but I still don't hear any plausible solutions.

I totally agree with you Emerald and I was born in Louisiana and have lived most of my life in Texas.

There are still many that think Al Qaeda, Taliban and Osama orchestrated 911 and many of these people have degrees from college universities.

There are still many that think Obama is causing all the turmoil in the US when in actuality it has been going on for a long time...probably clear back to the early 1800s.

Many cannot see that our leaders like to toy with us. There is no mistake that Osama sounds like Obama and his middle name being Hussein as in Sadam Hussein.

There is no mistake the 2004 elections were between 2 cousins John Kerry and George W Bush that just happen to be members of Skull and Bones at Yale.

Many continue to write these things off as nonsense, conspiracy whacko theories which is ok by me. It will simply accelerate the destruction process and hopefully bring closure to the stupidity here in the USA. Hopefully.

Please do not get the vaccine! It just means more for the rest of us.

P.S. You’re the one who has fallen for the ploy here, the swine flu is a killer it’s just not being reported. Have a look at any cities obituaries over the course of a few weeks. You will see unusual numbers of 30-40 year olds dropping dead. Do you think that the drop in Medicare claims this year is just a coincidence?

Three have died in my town of 1,300. No one has said Swine but they died of flu complications. One had cancer, but was healthy. I have seen a spike in deaths here as well but I only have direct knowledge of the three, the word around town says swine got them.

I personally know at least one victim, Kenneth Pillow of Texarkana Texas. He died of the swine flu but it is not reported that way. The local news said this healthy 28 year old died in his sleep and that was it. This guy could run a 3 minute mile like it was nothing.

Media blackouts are just part of the equation when it comes to Pandemics. Media Blackout 1918 No one wants to be liable, and will only report confirmed cases which are few and far between.

Your the idiot my friend!

Are you serious? All I hear on the TV these days from the talking heads is, "xxx number of people died from Swine Flu today."

Of course, it's BS because they can label a death from anything and relate it to swine flu. Reports are coming out of hospitals that higher ups are forcing people to say to sick people, "oh you have swine flu" even though they don't. It is to induce fear. Fear is a low vibration. Flu is bs. It always was. The killer is the vaccine and this exposed commie government.

Oh is that how it works? Are you saying that everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed?

I'm so sick of people sticking to the dated false constructs that are the left/right political paradigms. When will people realize that politics don't solve problems? We don't just need social solutions we need technical ones.

We are getting exactly what we deserved.

We voted Obama in.
We clammour for free stuff, vaccines, healthcare, food, housing, cars etc.
We are afraid to take care of ourselves, our families.
We have demanded (and in turn, received) our new Nanny State.

I don't blame the majority of americans, however, I do blame the vocal minority on the left that has clammoured for YEARS that we need government to do this, to do that.

Now we have these inept weasels in DC that have listened to only those vocal morons, and we (the majority) have allowed it to happen. We have allowed them to shift the arguments, have allowed them to define the rest of us, have allowed them to snow-ball our economy, our media, our way of life.

In the end, we have no-one to blame, but ourselves.

And it is only going to be us, the majority, to change what we have wraught.

Be it by ballot, boycott, or active protest.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you want hope and change, START TODAY.

If you want freedom of choice, life style, freedom to live how you dream of living, START TODAY.

The news is reporting only a small fraction of the deaths. I don’t have a TV so I wouldn’t know what they are saying. I just know what I see around me, and I have family members who got sick and from the sound of it the swine flu is really bad news. In no way is it a mild illness! This is the flu you have a 85-90 percent chance to experience it firsthand.

Good luck!!

Now here's the good news:

1)Nature will take care of business

Those who get the Swine Flu vaccine and die off will be better for humanity as a whole. It is nature's way of getting rid of stupid and gullible people. There's no one to blame but yourself if you get the vaccine.

2)America's economy will be totally destroyed within a short period of time

Thanks to the emerging New World Order, a one world currency is needed, and it's NOT going to be the dollar. As a matter of fact, countries have already started to switch over to Euro, Gold, and other alternatives. No one believes in America anymore. It has unfortunately become a country full of lazy, arrogant, and ignorant people. The people who believe in the 9/11 official story don't even care that there has not been ANY single investigation by their own government on an event that has shaped the world we live in today.

The once great country of the United States is now only one step away from becoming Nazi Germany where people follow what they are told without question.

3)Most of these "gullible" people live in America

I hate to say it, but most of these "dumb" people live in the United States. There is a reason America experiments on its own people via the military vaccines, Fluoride, MSG, etc.

Nature in the end will take care of all the "dumb" people by getting rid of them, and fortunately that will put an end to the "stupid" gene.

The reason America is the main focus of this thread is because what I've said is true. I live in America, and it truly has become a country full of lazy and dumb people. If I was in another country, then I would talk from experience about that country, but I'm not.

Everyday, I see very gullible and dumb people that follow everything they hear and see on TV, internet, or main stream news.

The sad part is that every human being has the same potential, which is infinite, but they fail to realize it. Americans just seem to have a sense of "pride" that their country can do no wrong. You are feeding The Ego, so wake up and realize at the end of the day we are all humans.

If you support the troops fighting "terrorism", then bring them home. There's no point for people to be dying on any side from any country based on ILLEGAL wars.

Remember, Never Underestimate The Stupidity Of The Masses.

PS. This thread is not to say everyone in America is stupid. It's just talking about that big percentage that is. The big percentage that operates like a bunch of mindless robots who do as they are told.


Nothing more funny then a person who is ignorant about Americans, politics, etc.. willing to shoot his mouth off about the subject.

The funniest part is how you try to inflame Americans to post here so you can get some more points. Pretty sad and pretty transparent

Take a HINT!

There will always be stupid people in the world. Natural selection will not take care of them all.

Americans are smart, a majority go to college, choose what they like, and spend most of their time and life working doing just that.

Most people don't have the time to spend reading all the other sides to a news story or questioning the who, what, where, when, and why. That is why we have MSM. It's easy, we aren't lazy, we just trust the system far too much.

This is the problem with America not stupidity or ignorance but their attentions are focused on other things. When they get off work, you bet they are going to kick their feet up and relax with a football game or idol.

All you can do is show your friends the truth and have them show their friends the truth. The majority of the world is just uninformed.

We will get there, not everybody is a stupid as you think or you'd have billions and would be taking advantage of them just like the TPTB are doing to us at this very moment.

Stay healthy first of all,

Keep your mind open and suck in the experience.

For people that think I'm hating on America because I'm calling them stupid:

You need to wake up, and realize at the end of the day we are all humans.

There's no you, me, him, or her.

It's the stupid people vs the people who have become aware.

I'm not saying I know all the answers because no one does, BUT there are some things in life, which is just common sense to know, such as you don't get a vaccine just because a few thousand have died from it within the past 6 months, and they want OVER 3 Billion people to get vaccinated.

That's fishy, and if you don't think that, then you are being ignorant and gullible, and nature takes care of the dumb.

While you make some points, labelling everybody else as "stupid" because the choose not to follow your line of thinking and belief sounds more like imposing how your world works onto everybody else. You are incorrect in your assumption.

I believe that terrorists attack american soil. Im not too surprised either as we had been funding these guys during the 80's only to have to turn our backs and turn on them when they didnt suit the american agenda.

What "proof"? Alot of people have presented things they would consider "proof" and evidence to their own liking when it merely turns out to be a flawed analysis or their own assumptions. True, 9/11 did provide an opportunity for the Bush administration to push their agenda, true, there were warnings given to the Bush administration but that doesnt mean the pulled it off did it. They took advantage of the attacks but the certainly didnt pull it off.

This notion, this mentality of some in america, that cannot handle the fact we were attacked by a bunch of rural farming gun troddin' arabs, during the time of the ever so "strong defensive" conservative administration, is flawed. People need to come back to earth. Yes yes how impossible it is for america to be attacked! Only america and attack america!

People are insercure that this nation was caught offgaurd, so they conpensate this insercurity with believe that it is impossible, and that only the government could have done so.... I certainly didnt like the Bush administration, but that doesnt mean Im going to buy that dribble.


Believe it or not, there are till people who believe that by getting the Swine Flu vaccine


People hold different opinions about the swine flu vaccine. Really it comes down to assumptions. The in dividuals who speculate a greater swine flu conspiracy do so on assumption. The individuals who dont see any issue with the swine flu vaccine, do so over trust. Both sides are assumptive. Waving the "stupidity" flag around doesnt fly as both sides cant account necessarily for the solid evidence to their beliefs.

I agree though that nobody should be forced to take the vaccines, but obviously if there is the possibility of a plague going around, and it has happened in the past, there is the complication of what those concerned should do.


Believe it or not, there are still people who believe that the Middle East's only plan in the world is to destroy America and Israel.


I agree with you there. That fact above does actually have evidence and common sense is needed. Why should Iran be attacked if Israel holds 200 undeclared WMD's, when it is just as much of a threat? Hypocrisy I agree.



1)Nature will take care of business


Nature certainly did its business during the spanish plague of 1918 which took out 50 million people. There are those who feel something should be done and those who dont. You dont want to trust government vaccines but you trust them in military defense?


2)America's economy will be totally destroyed within a short period of time


We are in deep economic times, however it really depends on what side your on as to see whethere the economy is improving. My question is, if the economy heals a year or two from now, how would you feel about this statement of yours then?


3)Most of these "gullible" people live in America


There were plenty of gullible people in the Soviet Union, Germany, Argentina (during the Falklands war) and in China. Most is an incorrect assumption. There are ignorant people here and we have demonstrated that sure but your incorrect in your analysis of "most".
