As far as this "bird" thing goes, I doubt it's a literal bird, any more than he was talking just about a literal currency. He said the bird had one eye. I've never seen a bird with one eye. He said the eye was red with a blue iris, if I'm not mistaken, also very bizarre for a living creature. He said no feathers, only metal scales all over it. I think he said the feet were like a woodpecker. Could this be an allusion to the "woodpecker signal"? I seem to recall reading some speculation it was used in some forms of mind control. He also said there was only one of these birds. Some sort of prototype, or is it unique because you only need one in the world? The beak that's two feet and lime green? Uh...
In the flag burning video at around 5:20 something whizzes past the screen, it looks like a bird. I've tried to isolate frames of it but it looks very blurred. It looks to me like it might be 2 or 3 frames perhaps. Maybe somebody better at manipulating video than me can grab some stills of it.
This may not mean anything, probably mostly crap but it popped into my head as I was trying to sleep last night.
Loughner's infamous flag burning video mentioned a "rare bird on his shoulder"......the symbol for the US is the eagle, right? Being on his shoulder? Has anybody played video games where your character is viewed mostly from the back? Games like Gears of War for example?
They're known as 3rd person shooters due to the view being, you guessed it, over the shoulder.
World of Warcraft could be lumped into the 3rd person description since you're looking over the character's shoulder there too. Didn't someone on ATS suggest Loughner played WoW and got some clan names etc from that game's mythology and character base?
Perhaps the rare bird on his shoulder meant the US Government or a part of it were following close behind him, watching and controlling his every move just like we do when we play these video games?
He also says to play the video in reverse. Some have taken it to mean that the US is like a phoenix rising from the ashes but the thought that came to my mind last night was this.
He burns the flag, a metaphor for the US and its liberties being killed off and destroyed, turned to ashes. The message to reverse the video apparently comes near the end so when you do so and watch, the flag rises from the ashes.
BUT.....maybe he means that in a different way? The message is at the end meaning you can turn back the video to see the flag risen again but by then it's too late, it's already destroyed and all you're doing is looking back at the past to see something that's already gone.
Hopefully you all understand this cause I'm trying to figure out the symbolism myself but rather than attempt to start my own thread I'd post in here.

I bet you he never read most of that. People who like the pretense of looking well read. What part of Plato's Republic spelled out his beliefs? I was an English major in college and this list looks like utter bull#.
