Yeah I know this is way late, but I received a similar invitation in the mail and wanted to do a little fact-searching. I happened upon this site,
realized how cool it looked & decided to join
Before I say anything else: about the Colonel...yes, his bad grammar (and even worse, his) spelling IS off-putting, BUT he could very well be a
Colonel ANYWAY... I dated a retired (high rank) Marine. His spelling/written grammar was such schiott, I *secretly* wondered how he even got ADMITTED
IN, let alone promoted
He COULD have endured "dain bramage" while on the field, the same might be said for this "Colonel" but since he's AF,
it's nowhere near as likely as when in land-based, down&dirty branches like USMC. How many people have YOU met whom you determine is a real shmuck,
may not even be as smart as you or works as hard as you do, yet "somehow" you get passed over a promotion in favor of THAT guy?? Or you see that same
person get all the "ins" just because of nepotism or simply just having the "right" association. Doesn't it confound you? Frustrate you to all hell?
Well, that may be the case here. That was one reason why I dropped out of college: I realized the (proliferation of the) existence of the dichotomy
known as COLLEGE-EDUCATED MORONS! Just because someone can memorize the right answers and retain the contents of certain books does NOT make them
smart! OR mature for that matter! Plenty of college-educated morons out there (even professors), too many of them. It drove me mad
and I quit.
And also, I happened upon a news article years ago on how the Army has increased it's weight limit requirements and LOWERED their intellectual
ones...even accepting illegals for enlistment under the promise of a path to citizenship...Are they THAT hard up? Wow
Goes to show you who they
let in these days. But whether or not he really is a colonel is arbitrary to me. He didn't even have that much information to offer, only "secret
societies DO exist" and suggested the possibility that the one in question may be too and to not be so quick to judge. He alludes to his dad's
promotions as a result of some secret society hocus-pocus...maybe the same is true for him?
I don't doubt the existence of secret societies, I just doubt whether or not this "organization" IS. While they MAY have good information to teach,
I've seen one deception after another from this company (whatever name it is they CHOOSE to call themselves THIS YEAR), lead-ons, overpromising,
underdelivering and WAY overcharging LOL. I just uncovered a secret to their "10 second miracle": you will NOT find it in the initial book they sell
you because it's simply not there! It's something they upsell you with LATER when your brain has been thoroughly washed enough from the initial book
they're selling lol. You can clearly put together what they're alluding to when you read what I found (better hurry before someone rats this out and
the page gets taken down lol): www.thesocietyofsecrets.com...
:that the initial 140$ book makes you a "level 1"
member...and that "level 2" (whatever the hell THAT means...or COSTS :lol
is where they REALLY reveal what they promised to share with you hundreds
of dollars ago. If you think the 140$ is a steep sacrifice, you aint' seen nothing until you read the above link...I can't imagine how many zeroes are
at the end of those "levels"
Does this mean that I believe they have nothing to offer? Not necessarily. It seems to me that this is yet another unfortunate case of worthy
information sold (or should I say extorted) by unworthy people, who subscribe to unworthy practices on gaining money. Have you seen a book sold by the
same author on how to make a living simply playing poker? You can find it on amazon. It teaches you essentially how to be a hustler and how to detect
who's an easy mark to ruthlessly prey upon until they've got no money left. If you're even a little bit Randian, you might think "well, it may SEEM
like I'm a heartless crook taking advantage of someone else, but this person is a (or is EXPECTED to be) a responsible well-informed grown-up, not a
child...and I didn't have my hand up their butt like a puppeteer, they DECIDED to proceed. It's merely the financial equivalent of natural selection."
Objectivism vs. ethics. Well, that's another topic lol. The point WAS...if he can think that way about preying upon ez mark poker players, who's to
say he doesn't (secretly) feel the same about those who feel hopeless & desperate enough to try ANYTHING to improve their lives? He DOES believe in
"unrestricted capitalism". Apparently he sure is CAPITALIZING on the desperate and feels unrestricted by social responsibility or ethics (those who
have read his inital neo-tech book will already know THAT). Not saying the info is crap, just caveat emptor when it comes to the seller is
