But there is so much fodder!!! The levels of gullibility are astonishing, lately:
AtG, ProudBird, and everyone else here that goes onto threads constantly, all day, everyday simply to "debunk".
If people would apply a bit of critical thinking before repeating obvious bunk, there'd be a whole lot less crap to de-bunk!
ATS site motto, remember? Ignorance abounds nowadays, especially on the 'Interwebs'....there are people out there, including Alex Jones, et al....and his ilk.....who delight in putting up the most ridiculous junk, and getting people to swallow it hook, line and sinker.edit on Fri 27 January 2012 by ProudBird because: (no reason given)
“Overt” means “done or shown openly or plainly apparent” in the Oxford English dictionary.This can refer to all sorts of actions which are done in plain sight or with clear manifestations. Let’s use this sentence as example to illustrate its meaning: North Korea recently showed overt acts of aggression against its sister country South Korea. By using the word “overt” to describe acts of aggression towards South Korea, we know for a fact that there were indeed hostile actions taken by the North Koreans in full display of the public.
“Covert,” on the other hand, means the exact opposite of overt – not openly acknowledged or displayed. This is a very tricky term to use which is why it’s often associated with military and political activities. The word often connotes deception and misdirection which is why it’s seldom used in everyday conversations unless, of course, we are working for the government or some organization that values secrecy. A good example of using this word is this: The CIA is running a covert intelligence mission in Iraq. We know they have an operation ongoing in that area, but we have no details as to what exactly it’s all about.

Guaranteed the majority of the responses this will get will be about how people don't like alex jones.
NOBODY cares what you think of him or his websites, look at what he's covering.
The videos include clips showing mainstream news sources covering similar facilities and admitting that they're to hold prisoners, so if you deny that they exist, YOU'RE the crazy person.

Dude, calm down.
There's no sense in arguing about this because there really isn't enough proof on either side to satisfy both parties. Every man to himself.edit on 1/7/12 by Avalessa because: Misuse of comma

See that word there, illegal?
Next time try actually reading the information.
Despite being barred by state law, the NYPD fingerprinted every person arrested during the Convention,
including the nearly 1,500 people arrested for minor offenses like parading without a permit and disorderly conduct. This raised serious concerns that the NYPD was using minor arrests to build a fingerprint database of political activists.

Again if you actually read the statute you would find that fingerprinting in that manner is allowed under special circumstances.
