I agree...it should be trashed considering the watered down content.

Now the fun is over
Where do words begin
I'm trying to find the path ahead
Any way you say it
The charade goes on
But your eyes won't see it
It's the same old song

I don't believe you

I don't believe you


Promises so golden
Years have proved them wrong
I'm trying to leave some self respect
Any way you say it
Our decline goes on
But your pride won't heed it
It's the same old song

I don't believe you

I don't believe you

I don't,
I don't believe In you


(Instrumental)


And the way you play it
Is the way you want
Any way you sing it
It's the same old song
I don't believe you

I don't believe you

I don't believe you

Not sure I understand your response. Please explain "watered down", and also how this contributes to the tyranny.

I love my avatar too. He's a good dog.

Sure...


All you did was point out what has already been regurgitated many a time on this site...


You did it without even offering why it's not o.k...you brought nothing new to the table, and if you want to play it off as a reminder to the masses, why not respond to one of the many threads that already cover the topic..?


And most of those at least offer an opinion as to why it's not o.k...

The only problem, however, is that the people who concretely care about America not becoming a police state, are probably 5% of the population at the very most. Occupy run protests which have attendance of 150, and then act as though that is something to be proud of, or excited about.

Everyone else in the country spends their time watching people like this guy. Apparently lolcats are of crucial importance to human survival.

S&F Good sir!

You've summed up pretty much every problem I have with this "wonderfully free" country we call the USA.

Actually, although I find it fine to make a lot money with good ideas or good products, once you get to a certain point, making more money will be to the detriment of others in almost any situation.

Greed : maximize your income to the best of your ability in the detriment of others.

Indeed but only if it doesn't penalize or remove the freedom of other people.

A brilliant list, and one We can easily uphold IF...

We eliminate the need for money.

If We flood the planet with free energy, the need for money dissipates. If We can release electrogravitics (which offers free energy) from black ops, We can flood the planet with free energy.

For more on electrogravitics and its abilities (and an understanding of the intimate connection of money to energy), please read My thread here: www.abovetopsecret.com... .

I must say... If We can get the awareness of electrogravitics to the tipping point, black ops will likely release the information. Let everyOne You know know about this freedom-creating tech.

Or actively spread awareness of a tech that will wrest the power from the power elite, and free Humanity from poverty, hunger, and war. (Not to mention the "Federal" "Reserve.")

All these would be non-issues if We get rid of the need for money... (I know, I'm sounding like a broken record in this thread, but so many issues We see today CAN be solved IF We can get the tech that has been in black ops for over 50 years out to Humanity at large. And I aim to do just that!)

Economy is not a pie with a limited amount of slices to go around. Wealth does not mean others are deterred from obtaining wealth as well. It is a too often canard put out that the amount of money a person makes indicates the level of greed they possess. The poorest among us can be just as greedy and it is greed alone that is a detriment to others, not wealth.




Indeed but only if it doesn't penalize or remove the freedom of other people.


You necessarily had to ignore my assertion that if it causes no harm it s okay. Placing qualifications on freedom such as you just did is a slippery slope. If any qualification need be placed upon freedom it is the one I all ready offered that you pretended I didn't state.
