In Bizzaro America, our constitution says that ALL men are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights. But there's an asterisk that no one can see that says at the bottom, "As long as your American and not a Muslim". And the people support treating prisoners of war as sub-humans because only sub-humans wouldn't be included in "all men", so they aren't equal and don't deserve rights.

Feel free to unflag my thread if you flagged it in the first place, I'll understand and won't blame you.

Here's another example someone just posted. I'm at my wits end - what in the world are people thinking?

Cal State University approves 12 pct tuition hike

news.yahoo.com...

It is the freaking greedy elitists in government, businesses, and education that are messing it all up and hurting the average student or worker. How about not raising it another 12% in tuition but instead reducing your $400,000 salary to $300,000 or lower.

This is becoming crazy. Don't tell me this is capitalism. This is greed, and we need a more fair socialistic structure.

You do not have to watch The Twilight Zone on the Sci-Fi channel any more. Every day you get to live it for real. It would take a week just to list all the things that have went crazy in just the last 5 years alone. Looks like Y2K did not affect the computers but people instead. It is as if reality is coming un-glued.


When I read this, I instantly thought you had a gem on your hands. Y2K meets the Matrix. The consciousness program we have all been running is crashing because of the Y2K "error." Therefore reality is coming apart at the seams as the program gets more and more "buggy."

As to your last question, "when reality is broken, who will fix it?" The hero of course (Neo? Julian Assange? as himself of course)
btw that is a kick ass tag line for the story/movie...

What fun...

Bizarro World alright. Last week I ducked into the supermarket to buy some non-fluoridated water. I was in there about 10 minutes. When I came out I saw that someone had hit my parked car and the light and indicator lens was smashed onto the ground and the bumper buckled. I was puzzled for a minute wondering if it was indeed my vehicle. Then a guy who had been sitting in his car in the next parking bay to mine saw my confusion, attracted my attention and pointed to an old lady who was writing on a piece of paper on the bonnet of her car.

I walked over to her and asked if she had hit my car. "Yes", she said and then handing me the piece of paper with her name and registration on it she asked, "Is that all you need?" I replied,"I just need the details of your driver's license too."

At this she said, "You know most people would have just driven away and not stopped."

Regretfully (now) I replied, "Yes, you're a real angel for doing the right thing." In a sarcastic tone.

She then started accusing me that it was my fault that she had hit my car because I was not parked in the exact middle of the parking bay. (I was well within the boundary lines) The guy in the next bay had come out of his vehicle in the mean time and told her, "no he is parked inside of the white lines."

The old lady said, "Well, we'll just let the insurance companies decide whose fault it is."

After she said this and sensing forthcoming complications, I asked the third party if he would stand witness for me, as he had seen the whole event, which he agreed to do. I then started taking photos of the scene and of her car. As I did this she was following me around and yelling in my ear, "It was your fault....it was your fault!" Her voice was not the voice of a nice little old lady, it sounded like the bellow of some mannish banshee, like a bull roaring. My eardrum felt like it was being blasted off its mounting.

I said, "Lady, please show me your license so I can get out of here, I have some important things to do."

She held her license over her head, shouting, "I won't, I won't!"

She seemed to be relatively wealthy and had all kinds of heavy gold jewelry about her and owned the latest model vehicle.

I suddenly became aware that she was possessed by a power greater than what her physical appearance suggested and so I refused to be baited any further by her and just replied in terms of one or two words.

Finally she calmed down a little and holding onto her license tightly, wrote out the license number for me. Then she asked me for my license which I held out to her. She snatched it out of my hand and began to write out half the number then stopped and focused on my photo.

"What country are you from?....what is your race?"

"Lady, does it matter? Just write down the number I have things to do"

She repeated the surname three times in different accents..."Bosnian...are you Bosnian...or maybe...."

I didn't reply to her.

She finished writing down the number and handed me back the license.

As I reached out to take it, she pulled it back towards her, saying, "What is this other number here on the photograph?"

Lady, I don't know."

"Why you don't know?"

"Just write it down if you want, okay?"

She writes it down and then handing it back to me says, "I knew there was a reason you didn't want to give me your license."

Bizarre. Sign of the times. Nothing is at it seems or is expected to seem. Inside out and upside down.

As a non-Muslim Iranian I can testify that this is not only occurring in the US.

I'm a Muslim by default in most places I go, even on this board I'm Muslim by default. I can tell someone I'm not Muslim and they will say I'm lying and that I must be a Muslim. It's kind of funny until people that view me as a Muslim start viewing Muslims as terrorists, criminals and barbaric animals. Because that makes me...you guessed it. Ah well...Bizarro world, where reality is dictated by fiction.

if you are going to stop reading what i wrote because you disagree with ONE aspect of it, then i don't want to waste my time to convince you to read on.

Thank you for the inspiration of my new example:

In Bizzaro America, if you say ONE thing someone disagrees with even though they disagree with everything else you say, there must be something wrong with anything else you will ever say.


Nicely put. I will dwell on this development for a while and rethink my original opinion. I still disagree with you and anyone else who claim that illegal aliens are not destroying this country. Try living in a town and neighborhood that was overrun by them and you will quickly change your tune. I just get frustrated with people who have ideas about things with no experience in what they are talking about.

Yeah I agree with this as well. TPTB keep us all preoccupied with inane and stupid issues like gay marriage, ridiculous reality tv shows, and race inequality when they are off stealing all of us blind. George Carlin said it best: It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in The big club.

The tax rate on the "wealthy" is the lowest since the 1930's.

Americas wealth is controlled by a smaller and smaller percentage of the population.

America spends -trillions-on wars that were started on "bad intel" and we just grumble but spend a tiny portion of that $ on Healthcare reform and the howls of protest are heard coast to coast.

American politicans rule only at the whim of the people, we distrust most of them and yet somehow in this era of communication saturation (with people crashing cars while talking on cel phones and walking into street lamps while texting), we don't spend any time communicating with our elected officals.

I could go on and on.

thank you OP.

Nothing bizzaro about PACKS of rich individuals which trade amongst themselves wanting to have full control over the world and it's economy at your expense. Welcome to the age of greed and paranoia ~or~ paranoia and greed (they feed each-other in a sense don't they).

Thanks for the story .... it made me laugh. Sorry about your troubles though.

Someone hit my car while I was in a Walmart (I know serves me right for shopping there
) and left no note but a nice big dent and scrape marks down the side of my car. Since I have a $500 dollar deductible it never got fixed.

Thanks for trashing my car irresponsible, selfish, can't-drive-worth-a-damn, anonymous person (people suck)

Bizzaro world indeed.

Deceptive people getting loans they can't afford are what brought down the housing market not banks handing out loans like candy and selling them with a AAA rating on it to there's-a-sucker-born-every-minute.

Drug testing for welfare recipients in Florida because obviously that's whats wrong with Amerika but 700 billion dollars and a pat on the back for a job well done to wallstreet investment bankers.

Yes, and those who question information spoon fed to us have mental problems.

People with adequate IQs are a bane on society because they think they know everything when it is obvious that people who barely made it through high school have all the answers.


Reminds me of that episode from the (newer) Twilight Zone called "Examination Day".


Dickie Jordan is an intelligent and curious youth in a dystopic future. It is Dickie's twelfth birthday, which means he is required by law to report to a government testing facility for a mandatory IQ test. As Dickie gleefully tells his parents how he was told by an older friend that the test is easy and that he's sure he will pass it, his parents react stressfully and avoid his questions. The Jordans give Dickie a present, two years earlier than he thought he'd be able to get it, and then they bring him to the facility and go back home to wait anxiously for the test results.

When Dickie arrives at the testing facility, he is given a medicine which the examiner says will ensure he tells the truth. He is then given a series of tests, and appears to be doing very well.

After his parents anxiously await the test results at home for hours, they are contacted by the government. Dickie's test results are in. Sadly, he was judged as being too intelligent, exceeding the legal limit; the parents burst into tears as the government examiners ask the Jordans how they would like their son's remains to be handled.

There is nothing wrong. What I see here are a lot of paranoid thoughts.

I see people unable to cope with all of the information.

You know, it's only going to get worse. Information will increase!

So what do we do? Feed our fears some more? Until? What? What's left?

I think the people here aren't afraid of this reality so much as something is wrong with them. Something in their reality isn't working out. And they're projecting this instability onto the rest of the world. So they look for all of the flaws in the world and blame and complain and attack because they don't want to attack themselves. It's like looking in the mirror and not liking what you see. So for the rest of the day you tell others how bad they look. It's easier to attack others.

So I'd ask you to look deeply inside yourself and examine your reality. Look for things that you don't like to see. Those are the kinds of things you will project onto the rest of the world. It's essentially like when people create a straw man in an argument so that they can win easily, except you're creating a straw man that resembles yourself in someone else and you're attacking it because it's easier to attack somebody or something else than ti's to attack yourself.

I like that explanation. But maybe you do too much coc aine or a stimulant? Overloading on those can lead to paranoid impulses. Other drugs can do that. Or maybe you're naturally overdriven. Like when you confront a beast in the wild. Do you fight or flight? Imagine this happens a lot!

So an example.... We know from studies that helping others is a big boost to confidence. So maybe you're not doing that enough. And that shortfall is leading you to want to hate yourself. But you don't want to do that. Hating oneself seems like a dead-end. So you look at others or you look at government or something in the world and you look for signs that someone or something isn't being helped and then you go into attack mode and draw your sword.

There're lots of inner demons in people. I think the chaos in the world is a reflection of it. But attacking the world won't solve your inner troubles. It's a false sense of purpose - a dead end.

It's a dead end. Find someone to help. That'll fix it.

I agree with both of you. We are truly living in a bizzaro world when Americans have forgotten our constitutional right to stand up and reform the government.

You had me until the immigrant part and I stopped reading. Illegal aliens are a HUGE part of the failure of this country right now. I've seen firsthand what they do to towns and neighborhoods and the burden they are on states. Your rant was a good one until this point. Rethink this idea and I will consider reading the rest of it.


The difference between current and past immigrants was that previous immigrants settled and formed new communities. Current immigrants move in and take over existing communities. That is the academic drop off...
