yeah i could go on but i'm American so i'll only dis my own.
msm is scrambling in overdrive to quell the masses Before there is even any reason. Questioning every event is human nature. They are just scared that we can and desire to be aware ... and our own discovery that we aren't so willing to buy the latest digi-fed baloney really rocks their boat.

This is obviously due to what BP did to the coast. We need to charge them with crimes against humanity!!!! Wake up people. Take control when there is still a little left for us. Our government does not care if we are jobless, homeless, and foodless. That much is obvious with the bank bailouts while everyone is losing their jobs and homes. We have a right to change our system if it has stopped working in our best interests. The time is now!

I tend to follow the stories relegated to the ticker at the bottom of the screen. Like you, if they're not covering it, or attacking it, then it's something worthy of investigation. Where there are smoke and mirrors there is fire and truth. Bad metaphor, but what do you expect, I haven't finished my first cup of coffee yet...

Aww how cute.. Did I hurt your feelings?.. I was joking assuming I was dealing with an adult.. Apparently mental midgets get their feelings hurt quickly..

My point is.. You are saying it is to tall for him to climb in.. WOULDN'T that ALSO make it too tall for someone to throw him in?

How about you go take your meds and come back with a better attitude.

I watched Nightline last night because the promo said they would be discussing all the bird's deaths. I was expecting an honest, concise piece about what has been happening, and what did I get? Just what the OP said. A piece that was delivered in a sarcastic manner, that denigrated and put down the people in Arkansas that were interviewed by saying that not everyone in Arkansas has a beard (or something like that), and just generally making fun of people's honest concern for what is going on. I remember watching Nightline when it first came on, during the Iranian hostage crisis. Back then, it was a news show that endeavored to show the people what was happening in the world. Boy, times have sure changed.

Please point out one place I claimed something was a fact.. When you can't .. I will assume that everything else out of your mouth is ill conceived garbage also. carry on.. nothing for you to see here!


you sure about that? i love a good challenge ... let's start here:

Now, you have heard several things about Wheeler... Have you checked any of the facts? Anyone? Or are you just believing everything you read?

These are some of things that are being said, without 1 OUNCE of proof.

the MEs preliminary determination of a homicide is Fact - multiple links provided
the body being located at the dump is Fact - any msm source verifies this
the body having originated in any dumpster - purely speculation - no facts to back that one up, yet.
there are no autopsy results, crime scene photos or preliminary reports to review ... what else do you suppose can be 'verified'?


He was visually screwed up in the video

sure, this is true, But you automatically assume he was drunk? how convenient. why couldn't he have been poisoned? biologically attacked? having a stroke? for all any of us are privy to, he could have been suffering angina, what do you really know?


So the killers used a catapult? A crane?
A dead body or unconscience body is near impossible to move around.. the suspect must have brought a ladder with them ..

aaaaah, the summary of a small mind ... if only you understood the concept of 'leverage'.

you post a reference (www.dailymail.co.uk...) that the first sentence reads:

The top Pentagon aide found dead at a landfill site may not have been murdered at all, a private investigator has claimed.

and you expect anyone to take you seriously?? nice.


I was being sarcastic and joking around.. I didn't realize that you were so sensitive or I wouldn't have... oh wait.. I didn't address you.

on these boards, you communicate to/with everyone, regardless to whom it is addressed.
and just why do i have to remind you about etiquette?


I assume he saw the humor/sarcasm in my post.. I wasn't being mean or even irritated when I typed that to him.. I was kidding.. Get a sense of humor

i read his follow-up post too ... apparently you assume far too much.
and, your dictatorial style doesn't impress me one bit ... try a vocabulary.


The medical examiner has not come out with a cause of death yet.. Unless I am unable to find it..
i gave you 3 separate sources and yet you need more?


My point is.. You are saying it is to tall for him to climb in.. WOULDN'T that ALSO make it too tall for someone to throw him in?

again, the assessment of a small mind. No, it doesn't necessary mean any such thing.


How about you go take your meds and come back with a better attitude.

not only is this beyond rude and unnecessary ... why don't you follow your own 'advice'



I will assume that everything else out of your mouth is ill conceived garbage also.

hint: your assumptions really don't interest me one tiny, itsy bitsy bit ... but, if you think i'm gonna leisurely sit by and just watch you spread nonsense, think again.

ya know, now that you mention it, i was wondering why no entry had been made in Breaking News for the Alaskan Pipeline Shutdown ... no estimates yet on repair or the time needed to perform them. Better fill up your tanks.
they have been ordered to reduce production to 5% of normal output ... not good ... especially during the anticipated weather or this economy. my prayers to those soon to freeze from 'rationing' strategies.

Says the guy with an alien avatar on a conspiracy site. Well said, well said.

What I was pointing out is that this was reported by the news. "ABC News - the most trusted name in news". It seems a might bit childish to do the story how they did. It raises questions as to what their intentions were if it was just meant to be funny. That raises serious doubt as to their journalistic credibility.

It wasn't meant to be a serious journalistic piece hence the jokes and satirist nature of the story, so credibility doesn't even enter the story here.

"Questions to their intentions if it were meant to be funny?" Uh... how about HUMOR????

Good lord.

dude, no offense but the msm isn't paid to be funny ... we have plenty of comedians.
their sense of humor has no place in any NEWS story which this was meant to be only they had no intention of delivering news ... hence, no new angle, no new results, no new info of any kind = wasted airtime.

They passed it off as the answer to everyone's questions regarding the animal kills. Why the humor for something that isn't at all humorous?

Why does everyone need things explained in so much detail on this site? I'm new here so I suppose I'm not clued into how things operate.

You are right, the msm isn't paid to be funny: They are paid to get ratings... and that includes being entertaining and.... funny.

So, in a sense: They do get paid to be funny.

Wake up... msn isn't news. It's news, entertainment, gossip, etc.. etc.. all ground up into a news-product and spat out in a nice package that is easily sliced by the consumer to fit in their information sandwich.

Listen, it was a hit piece on millions of Americans. It put a lot of people down and called into question their rationality. Now, the point of this discussion, since you're getting off topic, is this: Why did they go through all of the trouble to do this piece if everyone's theories are wrong? They didn't back up their claims for why the animals died, with evidence.

You and I know that the msm is not news. But, for the average citizen, it is the news. So, clearly, we have a blatant propaganda piece being shown first thing on the "news". What would be the point to this? Did they hit the animal kill stories too hard and just wanted to quash them and move onto some other pointless crap? Was/is it all a distraction?

I think that there is something significant about these deaths. I do believe in some of the cases, i.e. the crabs washing up on shore in the UK, that it was something that naturally occurred because it happened in the past. But, these other deaths where birds are falling dead all at the same time sounds different from the usual animal kills. I could be wrong, but most animal kills happen over a longer period of time. In some cases, they happen quickly. But, as many times all around the world in a week. I find it bizarre.

excuse you? you are suggesting i 'wake up' ?? have you read any of my posts? really man, get a clue.
i seldom reference or absorb msm of any kind ... peruse it sure, but put any stock in it? you must be jokin.
hint: being 'entertaining and funny' is exactly why their ratings are dropping, daily.

peewee1263 'gets it' ?? it watched it ... surely there was something better than to have any expectations of msm ... but, somehow you find the complete waste of time "getting it" ?
