I'll keep this short and "sweet"...

The more I say, the more likely something I say will be taken out of context and used against me.

A large portion of "truth-seekers" on this site seem to overlook a major contradiction...

If you think the rich, 1%, or whatever is evil...

Why keep buying their products?

That PC, MAC, iPad, cellphone, smartphone or whatever, you purchased to access this site., put money in their pockets.

I live in the USA, and people here are always saying "money is the root of all evil", but they still love it as much as any billionaire.

If you really want to make a change for "the better", stop buying such crap.

Stop shopping at Walmart. Stop eating McDonald's.

Just stop.

Burn your money...no, wait. I'm sorry. That would be too easy.

Me?

I don't care about rich people.

I don't care if they are evil...but a lot of you seem to.

You been a member six months and have made 30,000 posts about the evil in the world and never once acknowledge your own misguided slothfulness.

Ban me.

Free me.

I hope you all wake up and realise that life is nowhere to be found (and truth is nowhere to be found) on a website.

Deep breath, step back, relax. Take time out to take time out. Like you say, it's just a website, with people, just like you. Don't let it consume you or irritate you. Ups, downs, a few laughs along the way if you're lucky...

Cheers! < Imagine a beer icon here>

Sounds like you've solely created this thread because your upset about comments directed towards your post in the last thread.

I don't care about rich people either, but being born into this system of greed doesn't make me greedy. When self sustainability getting harder and harder to achieve, what does one do. I'm wondering why you joined in the first place.

Here's a novel idea, back out. Don't post. Don't even visit.

But saying things like this because you've got a personal vendetta about homosexuality is ridiculous.



Cry me a river, build a bridge and get over it.

Way to haphazardly lump all of us members together. Some of us do the best we can. Others do go the full 9 yards and get off the grid
. Some of us just complain and accomplish very little.

Some of us shop at Wal-Mart. Others make a lot of homemade goods and repair their own appliances. Others do a little of both.

It's not that ATS is a bunch of hypocrites, but it can look that way when you whitewash a very diverse group of people.

And besides, it's just a website. Take a break every once and a while

Thank you for being nice about it. I did not expect that.

Ciao.

I hope you can take a step back and realise, there is no way IRL that most of us truth seekers could or would ever meet up allowing us to discuss this stuff to begin with.

The internet has liberated mans mind, enabling him to get his hands on, as afore unobtainable information directly from the sources and witnesses with no filter.

Before the net, the people were spoon fed all news through the papers and the TV networks, at the pleasure of the elites, without any dissenting POV.

Now that the internet exists, it has frreed humanity from these chains of constrained information.

It is a beautiful thing to think about the people using their own tools against them to bring them down, and we are, daily, eventually it will be completely, we just need to wake up a critical mass of the populous.

We are moving in the right direction, I believe one day soon we may ackomplish this goal, and we will see honest needed change that is for the good of all man.

Just my take, didn't mean to rain on your doom porn fest.

Thanks for the off-topic insult.

Very smart.

No, but the previous thread did, and you were upset about posters criticizing your post. Thus you decided to attack the members on a grand scheme. Here's your soapbox.

You're welcome, most people here are actually pussies at heart, fierce pussies, well, ok Lions! But what's a Lion? A big cat. OK, there's one exception, a bunny but if we're really quiet he won't hear us. He's a scary bunny! No really! Shhh! He patrols these threads like that Monty Python movie (Quest For The Holy Grail). You really don't want to alert him to our presence, heads could start falling off.

You can't escape the system, even if you don't support them by buying their products, you are STILL in their playground playing by their rules. You making a thread about "them" is enough to get you back in the game. Unless you are OFF-GRID and I mean..........OFF...GRID with acess to a magical Wifi to make a thread on ATS...don't talk so big. You are plugged in just like all of us. Now, drink the kool aid and freshen up.

Lol, very nice, I also enjoyed your use of another name for a cat in so well stated a way, it took me aback for a moment, then as I continued reading your meaning became clear, and it was very fun indeed.

As far as that scary bunny goes.........I don't dare stare him directly in the eyes, though I hear he is easily distracted by cookies, this is his weakness, like kryptonite to superman.

You know, I apologize. I recant my previous comment, emotions got the better of me, and it's not cool to reply out of anger. My bad, lets agree to disagree, deal?

May I give a few well-meant tips?
Don't feel offended if others don't (always) share your opinion.
Don't feel offended if others voice their opinions or arguments, counter-arguments, ripostes, under-the-belts or cat-scratching.
Don't be your own Moderator, you can't, this is also why there are Moderators and believe it or not, they are your impartial friends.
Sometimes giving things time to settle can help...

Hope it helps, be well.

what ignorance mate? That homo issue had nothing to do with the issue at hand here, so why even mention it? "oh because it was mentioned in the other thread" - then go to the other thread and discuss about it there because it has no place here.

What ignorance? I'm just pointing out the obvious.

Actually, with the exception of my friend's phone, I am waaaay off the grid.

I have no I.D.
No car.
No home.
No money.

Not because I care about it. That's just me.

In the open I made it clear that I don't care about rich people.
If they mass-produce anything I find interesting, I'll get a job and buy the hell out of it.

I respect billionaires.

Hehe ha ha.
Oh ho ho ho...heh.
Hah.
Heh
Ha.
