I mean I have watched the news for the last week.

Not one mention of any war.

Lindsay Lohan is going to jail for something or other.

The Oil spill is still going on. Just no photos of it.

Oh yes, Ms. Lohan's middle finger prank, has gotten more media attention.

Yes, as well, for 3 months, BP PLC has sidetracked America from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Odd is it not that the sideshow obscured the three-ring circus?

Sounds just like Clinton's sex scandal being used as a smokescreen.

The financial bill is being signed and a WHOLE new bureaucracy to protect the consumer is being created. At least that is the name it will be given.

Of course, its name will be that, but it will be screwing America, not protecting us.

Mel Gibson is being his standard anti social self.

The economy is on an upswing.

The federal reserve is getting more power to help us.

Some racist member of the USDA got fired and is now going to get a higher position.

C'mon, what war are you talking about.

I have not seen any war on MY PROPAGANDA tube.

Mad Mel Gibson and his racist rants?

I loved hearing all those alleged voicemails claiming to be Mr. Gibson.

Notice how no one has actually verified it was him?

I do not see the economy on an upswing though.

The Federal Reserve does nothing but enslave us to the worthless dollar.

It is back not with silver nor gold but the Government's word it is worth something.

We both know what the Government's word is worth right?

Guess all the sideshows are drowning out the ringmasters.

Even here Spartan you can lay out the whole truth on important matters and have the thread dissapear into oblivion with zero replies.It sort of reminds me of a scene is the movie 'Whoops apocalypse' where the President has had a blow to the head and they have a psychiatrist check him out,the psychiatrist enters the room with a pink elephant,in his questioning he keeps asking do you see any pink elephants?,the President replies no every time,no no no pink elephant.

Well, timing is everything, when it comes to ATS and posting.

The forum works like a rotisserie.

It rotates round and round.

And where it stops nobody knows.

No pink elephants here.

Dumbo - Pink Elephants on Parade

Wait, was that trumpeting I just heard, or am I hearing things?

I think its funny how I can't get more than 10 responses to a thread unless I title it something ridiculous.

That would be because of people's short attention span.

Controversial topics, controversial titles, and controversial people.

These are things that catch the attention of people anywhere.

Sadly it is a reflection upon society as a whole that controversy is something eye-catching, instead of intelligent debate, and not politics in general.

People are only generally aware of politics until some jackass sleeps with an intern.

Then it becomes an ignorant free-for-all.

That has pretty much been the entire premise of this thread.

S and F...

Well I am hijacking this thread for a moment

This applies to your thread... You are completely right in the general point of americans wanting the security of not thinking.

Now to why I said I was taking a moment of your thread.

Last night I had an interesting dream. The part that concerns you SKL...

It seems that the members of ATS need to pay close attention to your threads coming up.

In the next year to two years you will write something on here that will start a chain reaction. Someone reading your post will respond with something that makes wikileaks recent release look like small fish...

More people will visit your threads and during the course of this discourse you will start a vast change in the american way. Your words will inspire many people to do something about there country.

In ten years something much more important will take place...

Allow me to be the first to congratulate you senator on your victory. I cant wait to see the day your sitting there and your response to the speaker in a joint session is:

"And on behalf of myself and my constituents, you can go to hell!"

So I intend to keep a close eye on your threads....

I honestly do not know what to think of your post.

No disrespect meant in that.

While I certainly can see myself getting into politics I have zero desire to do so.

It is because the nature of the beast with two backs.

You have to politically allow someone to screw you and vice versa.

Yes, I know politics, inside and out, upside down and in reverse.

This does not make my desire for entering it change.

As for someone telling me something more than Wikileaks latest debacle, of that I have no doubt, because I am someone who asks detailed questions.

I guess time will tell.

I am not seeking anyone out to tell me something classified.

If they do they do it based on their own perceptions and experiences.

With zero guidance on my part.

And that sounds like something I would do just to get their britches in a bind.

Albeit mild in comparison.

Something about my trusting them no further than shoving a rattlesnake up my ass, comes to mind, when it comes to a Joint Session of Congress.

Without the rattlesnake biting me.
