1. Slavery was wrong. A human should be treated like a human.

2. Earth is the strongest most advanced civilization from here to the other side fo the Milky Way.
3. Alien invasion would have happend already since militarily you'd want to take over a civilization before the
species on the planet become strong enough to give you a problem.
4. The pyramids were built by Humans, it took the span of their Civilization to accomplish the tasks they did not
just 2 years later finish the pyramids... If they had help by Advanced Aliens, there would be more than some rocky pyramids there would be Eygtians running around all over the world with their uber advanced technology.
Or sending us post cards from Mars...
They would not have just faded into history...
5. etc...

I know what you say is true in part. But maybe sometimes, every once in a while even our politicians do something just because it's the right thing to do. Maybe it's just the optimist in me, but I would hope they do have enough human compassion to make some decisions based on compassion and caring. But that's just how I feel.


Heh, unfortunately this is 2011, not 2364.
We are still motivated first by Money, second by Humanity...



There will probably be a lot more changes to come from 2011 to 2364 when Data and the Enterprise are out there solving other civilizations dilemmas...

Also, check this out. Just like Mubarek moved his fortunes, so did Gadaffi.

Funny how Obama waited *just* long enough for him to move *billions* before "freezing assets" in the US.

www.foxnews.com...


Qaddafi Deposited Billions in London Ahead of Asset Freeze

Published February 26, 2011
NewsCore

LONDON -- As the United States moved to lock up the American assets of Muammar al- Qaddafi Friday, it was revealed the Libyan leader secretly deposited £3 billion --$4.8 billion -- with one of London's private wealth managers last week in an attempt to protect his family's fortunes.


(snip)


Obama wielded presidential power in an executive order, seizing assets and blocking any property in the U.S. belonging to Qaddafi or his children.

In a statement, Obama said the measures were specifically targeted against the Qaddafi government and not the material wealth of the Libyan people themselves.

"By any measure, Qaddafi’s government has violated international norms and common decency and must be held accountable," Obama said in a statement.

"These sanctions therefore target the Qaddafi government, while protecting the assets that belong to the people of Libya."



I call BS because that money, that *we* gave some to them in aide, DOES belong to the people!


The U.K. Treasury stepped up efforts to trace and freeze Qaddafi’s assets in Britain Friday, which are believed to include billions of dollars in bank accounts, some commercial property and a $16-billion mansion in London.

The Swiss Government told its banks Friday to freeze any assets belonging to Qaddafi, issuing a comprehensive blocking order covering 29 people, including the dictator's wife and children, some of his wife's relatives and six officials of the regime.


So now, under the Obama kingdom, even Swiss accounts are not secure.

Maybe this is why Obama isn't so worried about the budget. Seizing several billion from Egypt, now multiple billions in cash and assests from Libya?

And just who will oversee what really happens to this money?

You make me feel sad
Sometimes I feel I'm alone or with just a few who think there is still some good in all of us, and sometimes even once in a lifetime, even our governments do something just to help others less fortunate solely because it's whats right. Oh well....

I kind of figured this was about to happen. Yesterday I tried starting a thread about this article I read yesterday. What concerned me is the picture of Obama and who I think might be George Soros. What do you guys think?


Why does that concern you? Obama meets with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka an average of 3 times a week! Think there's corruption going on?


You better believe there's corruption there. Obama is bought and sold like a plantation mule. This is what America has rotted into in 2 short years.

How's that hope and change going for ya?

This can hardly be called a civil war. Civilians are being massacred by tanks, planes, bombs etc. by the hundreds.

These aren't strategical moves by a general to try and win a battle, these are crimes against humanity.

He has no business declaring a state of emergency in a country that he doesn't even live in.Try working on the country that "voted" you into office.You can't fix the problems of the world until the problems in your own back yard are resolved first. But maybe Libya is his own back yard?

Bush, what are you nuts? I now there isn’t much intelligence in your part of the world but, King Dubya hasn’t been in charge for over two years. Grow up; understand that we decide what’s going to happen in the world. Romania can just sit back and relax. We’ll let you know what happens.

He declared a State of Emergency in the US *about* Libya, to freeze US assets.

If everything IS going to plan, id say the plan is to send the world to hell in a handbasket. There will be reversals and changes TTPTB cannot totally control. As these gain traction things will swing further off the plotted course....


You are also talking about factions within TPTB. A lot of what we see is the in-fighting to determine WHO is going to be Top Dog.

"They" all have the same agenda -a one world government and Totalitarianism/Neo-Feudalism cloaked as "Socialism".

The three main factions are the revolutionists - Russia/China and the slow takeover/wolf in a sheepskin that is the Old blood Europeans . The third more minor faction is "Theocracy" who is playing the two big factions against each other.

There rest of us sheeple are just so much Cannon Fodder in their power plays.

They use propaganda to lead us into believing we are "Free" and "Elect" our government but that is just circuses to keep us content.

The US government's response to the popular opinion on the AIG bailout shows exactly how responsive the US government is to the people who they are SUPPOSED to represent AND how they sided with the banksters to screw the American people. How politicians actually SET US UP for the bankers! After researching that bit of decades long treason by out politicians I do not trust them one inch.


First they LIE:
Gallup poll: Americans Split on AIG Bailout 40% favor to 42% oppose

A Rasmussen poll conducted last Monday and Tuesday found that only 7% of those polled favored government bailouts for financial firms

Then they hand OUR tax money over to the banksters to PAY them to foreclose! And to Add insult to injury, Obama actually HELPS the banks trick homeowners into foreclosure!

Obama mortgage plan is specifically designed to push homeowners who are hurting financially BUT can scrape the money together to pay the mortgage in to default. It lures those who want to refinance into foreclosure but a "false loan modification followed by a HUGE bill and a 30 day foreclose when the modification is denied by the bank. That is what AIG, the bailout, and the Obama mortgage plan is really all about. If the bank can force you into foreclose the US government pays the bank with bailout money AND the bank gets the house too. The AIG CDS contracts are a side bet and do not pay off the mortgage for you but for the bank. Your mortgage could have multiple CDS contracts so the banks do not want you to keep your home when they can make fast money by forcing foreclosures.

CDS contracts are where the bank is gambling that you will default. If you do they get paid. CDSs were purposely left unregulated and set up AIG bailout and Foreclosuregate.
www.democracynow.org...

The government bailout of AIG has actually encouraged foreclosures because the taxpayers continue to fill AIG’s coffers www.realtytrac.com...

WHO is getting the taxpayers bailout money? thepatriotswar.com...

Obama loan modification plan a failure: www.huffingtonpost.com...

The original set-up is seen in the changes made to the banking laws and signed by Clinton: Quick list of Banking laws

Well if that ain't some BS right there. I'm 2 months away from going on terminal leave and 4 months from getting out. I swear if they take military action and I get stop lossed, I'm gonna move to China and get a job where I get paid to farm gold in World of Warcraft. I'm done sticking up for the a-holes in DC. I love my country and Corps but hate the corrupt and stupid leaders.

Notice how the photo of Obama has a lady in red clothes, then Obama in a black suit, then a lady in green. These are the colours of the Kingdom of Libya flag; which is the pre-Ghaddafi flag that many of the protesters are using. The US is very skilled at stirring the pot!

Clue for you: the housing market in in shatters. Banks don't want your house..they have a whole stockpile of empty homes in Detroit, etc. Banks aren't in the real estate business; they're in the money business.

Many mortgages are upside down. You know what that means, don't you? Home values dropped again last report. And the housing market is tied to the hip by .....guess? That's right, jobs! The employment market!

And unless AIG, the banks, and Obama plan on creating 20 million good paying jobs this weekend, their plan has a fatal flaw in it.

I think it is rather doubtful that the US will launch a major attack against Libya because it's the old story, if the US does attack, Libya is theirs, and I don't think they want it.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see the odd cruise missile blow through the front flap of few tents.

What I always wonder about is not what is publicly discussed regarding these states of "Emergency" but, what else gets done behind the scenes while the Constitution is suspended and the relevant Presidential Directives are enacted during the state of "Emergency".

Black-ops, secret government (C.O.G.) rolls on.
