I never said I had proof, or that I know that this is happening; however, I think it is compelling that in closed door meetings with the congress, the
Chairman of the Fed (the real most powerful man in the world) made them completely reverse their position in relation to the TARP which was initially
defeated. I also think it interesting that the so called legislation that was passed essentially said, MIND YOUR BUSINESS on how we spend the money. I
think it interesting that the Markets fell to around 6600 in March of 2009 and were above 11000 in April of 2010. That is insane.
"So called" legislation? Isn't it really legislation?
When you say it's interesting that a single agenda emerged from the meeting. . . don't you think that the point was for each side to have a change
to convince the other? Following from that, isn't the expected outcome that one side wins? Couldn't the conspiracy argument have been made no
matter what happend? Is it really a sign of something deep and dark that people changed their minds? Presented with good argument against your
position, would you have the. . . guts . . . to change yours? There is a reason that he is chairman of the Fed. Like you said: "Markets fell to
around 6600 in March of 2009 and were above 11000 in April of 2010." Doesn't that mean that what he did worked? If it had failed and the markets
hadn't recovered substantially, would you say that those opposed to TARP were the consiprators? If yes, or no, why? My point is only that it's all
nonsense. You can make any argument about anything. The way to tell the difference between a good argument/theory/assessment is that the true ones
will have evidence that confirms that theory more than any other, whereas the false ones will involve imagination and intuition more than evidence.
See all of history for a case study on this subject.
If 2012 was real, and the elites did know something were coming, they would most certainly start preparing for the worst. It cost a lot of money to be
prepared for an ELE.
Yes, but that's just not true. The fields which would first predict any predictable ELE are academic fields, and the people involved are not part of
the conspiracy. They are grad students and professors, not bankers.
What if I said that I am an elite, and that we're not privy to the doomsday? For proof, u2u me.
What should we take from the fact that the population most concerned with 2012 is the ATS members - avg or less income earners - whereas the wealthy
don't give it a second thought?
Remember Deep Impact. The government builds caves for 1,000,000 people, the money is funneled out the Treasury, Treasury Secretary resigns....
Yes, remember that movie, because if it happend in a movie, that means we should take it seriously . . . seriously?
Just something I thought might be interesting and there are a number of co-incidences that exist.
It's fun to think about, but so are unicorns and Santa. Should we believe what we want, or should we seek the truth? Please answer this
I don't mean to be offensive, but I do mean to be dismissive. Just because you can think of something that makes sense at some level doesn't mean
that that thing is true, or that you should even take it seriously. . . Remember all the nonsense that people believed for 100000 years before
science? All of that made sense, but it was not true. In order to find the truth, we need reason and evidence. Without those things, we are just
telling stories. It's important that we not get confused.
