See how they quickly change our direction?

Ok, this is not a conspiracy.
Have any of you noticed how quickly TPTB can change our focus and
direction on the different topics of the day? A few weeks ago, we were so
involved in the passing of laws in Arizona that concern the illegal immigrants
flooding over the border from Mexico. There were literally dozens of threads
started over this with thousands of posts made on these thread titles. Then
all of a sudden this issue sort of took a backseat. It is still important, as the
state of Massachusetts just passed laws concerning this issue.

Before that, we were all yacking about the volcanos and then the earthquakes,
that is bringing doom and gloom to the world. I don't argue those points at
all, as they are serious issues that the whole world has to deal with.

Then we quickly were diverted to the issue in the Gulf of Mexico with the
BP oil disaster. It is continuing daily.

Then suddenly we were diverted to the issues with the flotillas bringing aid
to Gaza.

All of these events seem to take the heat off of the prior event and make us focus
on other things, somehow to make things go away for awhile.

While we debate the pros and cons of the President, we are then distracted by
the economic issues and how we are going to he11 in a handbasket. Then we
are sidetracked with the next issue, then the next, then the next. Things come
and go like a sandstorm. We may not forget them outright, but we seem to put
less emphasis on something and then direct all our energy towards the next
temporary disaster.

There seems to be no end to what is happening on the earth at the moment.
Does anyone think we can ever have a truly peaceful day when we can
actually sit on the patio and have a cold one and say, "the world is a super
great place today"? I am not being negative on this, it is just so hard to find
a lot of positive with all the BS happening.

I can understand where your coming from on this. We change topics according to whats on the news, internet, etc. We should all take a day off now and then from all news media, then the world will be a peaceful and wonderful place if just for one day!

Thats a good point. We live in busy times and I don't see an end to it.

Could be an interesting correlation with the "Time Wave Zero" thread. From what I understand, phases of "extreme novelty"will begin to occur in increasingly successive periods. Or something like that anyway.

They huh?
The PTB?

ATS is just an ordinary web message board that thinks it's not.
It's FULL of reactionaries, that's why the frenzy's to post. Thats why subjects bounce around like rubber balls, the burn out.
That's why people here don't remember what happened last month.
That's why the jumping on the bandwagon with the most ridiculous fraudulent posts.
But everyone continue to pretend they are "awake' and above it all. One thing that you can't do on ATS is criticize ATS! The quality of posts HAS declined.
Now, back to your regular scheduled "alternative" programing.

Turning off the television, turning off the computer, not picking up a newspaper, leaving the radio silent.................
Makes a quiet, peaceful, smaller happier world.

Like I said in a thread earlier, this is just another chapter in the play.

While they get ready for the next one.

Good stuff endtimer. Another problem we might want to look at is the lack of resolution on these issues. It never comes.

1. The bailouts, Wall Street, The poor economy: Nada. No one has done anything but pass some anemic legislation the industry basically wrote themselves.

2. The Oil Non-Spill, Non-Accident: It will be solved maybe August, maybe September, the saw got stock, the top kill failed, etc. But nothing has changed with regards to the leasing and safety of these drill rigs.

3. The Attack on the Aid Convoy: These foreign countries so the US may not be seen directly influencing things but for Pete's sake, the White House has to say something. 'We need calm and and time to look at the facts.' Well, no one is calm and the facts have been on You Tube since it happened.

4. The immigration laws in Arizona: That one just about disappeared but the illegals are still coming, the drug gangs are whacking folks left and right in Northern Mexico, and there is no end in sight.

I do not believe there is any increase in the frequency of world events. I think with the increased degree of connectivity, the more we see what really goes on every day. While frustrating, it is a net good thing. I never used to believe "TPTB" was a credible concept. The more I observe and study however, the more it makes sense when you connect all the dots. This connectivity is a direct threat (or at least the beginning of one) to those who up until now have acted with more or less impunity.

I starred and Flagged as I believe this thread was able to distract me from other events for a short time as it claims.

Thanks for the replies. I should have not used the term TPTB. They
aren't necessarily responsible for the events going on, although I
believe that some of it is their doings. I am just saying that somehow we
all jump on the bandwagon and thrash things to death and then go on to
the next fiasco that is thrown at us. I know the earth has naturally
occuring events, and some are human caused. It just seems like our
attention is quickly drawn away from things going on. I simply believe
it can be done purposefully by certain individuals, then we begin fretting
about the next world event to take our mind off of the one we are on now.
I know I probably don't make sense in this. It seems we are trying to wade
through so much at this time in history. And yes, I DO turn off the TV and
try to forget about things at times, but I am quickly drawn back in.

Yeah and it's funny how some things just "vanish" like they were never there at all.
Especially diseases.
Remember H1N1? It was supposed to hit it's "second wave" this spring. Never happened.
Heck, Remember SARS or Bird flu? They told us those could become a pandemic too, didnt they?
I hope that people start to see these patterns and see the media for what it is. Companies selling products, making profits.
