I don't know if they really think that we're idiots are not except, maybe, for the vote,when we keep bringing the same politicians,I mean, (why do we keep someone in power for 10 years or more?) who come up with some awful ideas for milking us for money in taxes.

However, they do seem to like to treat us like "babies" mainly because the sheeple enjoy so much pampering, and (can't seem to make a decision for themselves) in benefits and what not, and they (the professional lawmakers) seem to like intruding in our personal lives under that guise.

This usually, I think gives them the idea of patting us on the head, like saying no worries, we'll think up another dumb law to "protect" you, and we can get richer from taxing it from you. So, they're grinning like the cat who caught the canary.

Because ----

Some pay 35% or more. NO, I am POOR - paycheck to paycheck.

The Government has Million dollar parties. -- thousands a year.

We pay for it.

Some pay NONE -- NOT a F'n Dollar - get 3 or more thousand back


1 drop of water above in an ocean of ignorance

I do believe we as people are idiots, think of it as a game of Chinese whispers, even if we are told the truth, people will speculate and tell there friends, before you no it were all confused on what really happened.

Unfortunately, I think its been working for too long.


I mean look at these road ragers, for instance, some for just minor things, that shouldn't bother anyone except as a personal gripe to the spouce or partner at the dinner table.

Some of these other people. who seem so oblivious to what is going on behind their backs..Gonna be alot of surprised people in a couple of years from now when alot of these laws take affect, fer sure.

I think we'll be saying alot of, told you so's, or tried to warn you, but, you didn't pay attention..especially on this site.

Think?

Well, let's just say the dumbing down is deliberate.

The mass media entertainment has succeeded.

Keep the slaves in line.

What better way.

Yes, I was definately too idealistic when younger, never gave the government a thought. :mad at myself, for not paying it closer attention.

Should've known they have figured out all the loopholes.

Put simply because we are idiots.
No other society would put up with the crap they cause.

Since I wasn't there, it cannot be obvious to me, one way or the other. This↑ is precisely what I was talking about. You telling me that someone else saw something, is proof of nothing at all.

Now flip that around. If you want others to take you seriously, then prove it. Don't just say it. Anyone can say anything. Providing no evidence, makes for an extremely weak argument.

I don't share your optimism. People have become too dependent on the system to overturn it, and change is not slow but impossible from within at this point, the system itself has become self correcting...

Even when we notice major flaws, the system operates in a way that only the minimum is done for the shortest time solution especially in relation to political cycles or geopolitical interests.

Governments have so far failed to address tree of the primary human needs that should have been universally solved, habitation/safety, food and water, these problems have been with us since the beginning and still require an answer, even more than a pursuit of for personal freedom, because without a guarantee of those basic needs no one is really free and the one that controls them has power over those than do not...

For a brief time consider the span of human existence and why haven't this tree simple things haven't become the right of every human on this planet. Things are as better and they are worst, we haven't gone much further into improving the human condition than that of our cave dwelling ancestors. Only a minority has gained some temporary assurance of their needs but at the cost of the misery of others...

Unfortunately, I do not have evidence for my UFO sighting. However, the Pheonix UFO sighting should be enough evidence to support my claims, as well as other sightings and conspiracies out there. We're talking about several minutes of stationary lights in the sky, all of which can be seen from more than one camera angle to support this. It is obvious that it is not flares, but to each their own.

I am not here to start an argument at all but to express my concern.

I know that people are dumbing down, its pretty obvious that we are. It actually pisses me off how dumb people have become, but what can I do about that but express my feelings about the situation?

Maybe the moral of this post is to say wake up and see whats in front of your face!

The Government knows we are idiots because we keep eating the neurotoxins they feed us. They aren't aware that we know to eat the antidotes instinctively. They believe the Alchemists of the Chemical companies that tell them people are idiots and chemical control is necessary. Their belief will soon be changed as they see what is going to happen in the near future. These government people don't realize that these companies are poisoning them also.

The government doesn't think we are idiots, quite the contrary. What they do think is we are non-informed of hidden, secret things, and they would like to keep it that way. I'll bet the CIA/NSA/DoD hate this forum.

My two cents: they don't think we're idiots, they simply count on us not doing anything. In fact, they probably believe they are untouchable enough that we are smart enough to realize how futile resistance is. I should therefore mention that these are the exact folks who fall the hardest when they are eventually knocked off their pious perches. I speak from experience whenever arrogance and superiority complex is discussed, and I paid a price for that attitude. All in all, even I am glad I did fall, and I know for a certainty that everyone involved is better off for my failure when I needed to learn that lesson.
