Alright TDawgRex. Then why does the military exist at all? IF they are there to refuse orders, then what good are they? If they are there to take
orders, then refuting the orders is silly. So if you're in, you're in. If you're not, then get out. So you say if we shouldn't take military
action against Syria, then everyone should quit the military now, and I should go join and pick up a rifle.
I served over three decades and only once was busted for refusing a lawful order. But over that time I have refused plenty of both Direct orders
(these come from Officers) and Lawful orders (these come from NCOs) and I was vindicated and I have successfully recommended UCMJ for other Soldiers
as well. Just serving does not make you a robot. Point and shoot. The point is that the Syrian Civil war does not have National Security implications
for the U.S. It does for Europe, but not here.
I'm not condemning conscience. I'm condemning absolute rebellion. There is a place for conscience. But you're being played.
No offense, but I am much more valuable as the player and not the pawn. That being said, if I so had to be a pawn, I would be better than
most any other pawn. You're talking to someone whose spirit rivals that of General Patton; and just as seemingly insane at that.
It’s good that you don’t see yourself as a pawn. But all to often, kind of like you say, the player doesn't realize that they’re a pawn in
In this case, I would be quite the lonely pawn being played, because most everyone else is against me. Seems ridiculous for them to play only a very
few. I must be -that- powerful, eh?
As well, most of the vets here are conditioned to believe based on their trauma; not based upon reality. There is a reason why people who are
personally affected are not allowed to be in charge of an investigation or a mission. Because they are usually wrong.
Trauma is trauma…it’s not a conditioned response, but rather a reaction to the trauma of whatever nature was suffered.
It's conditioned. I'm not saying that someone necessarily did it on purpose to you; but you are conditioned by your trauma - and it takes quite a
bit of wisdom to work against that conditioning in your mind so as not to become jaded and therefore easily played.
You will remember your lazy words and accusations when the blood ends up in your backyard. Then you'll finally have your motive for action.
I guess you'll be disappointed if we don't use military action? I'm of the opinion that if we do use military action, then we will see blood in the
backyard. We are not the worlds police.
I won't have to be disappointed alone. Everyone will be.
Yes, we are indeed responsible for policing the world. America is the melting pot; the womb which carries the spirit of freedom, and disseminated
through her progeny that same spirit; being impregnated with her progeny by all the other peoples of the other nations when they fled their respective
lands for fear of the torment they were to receive / were receiving in their lands. And from America these people went back into their lands and
spread the knowledge and wisdom of the American way. And so therefore, because of the Americanization of these societies, we absolutely do have a
responsibility to keep them in check. Because when the spirit of freedom is used and manipulated for evil, then the evil becomes extreme. Or have
you not witnessed this by the attempted internal takeover of the Americas by the brothers, and yet enemies, of our progeny? And it is not just
attempted, but in process as we speak.
As well, you implied earlier that by saying that propaganda works both ways, that I am attempting to use propaganda.
You really attribute some strong powers to myself that I do not even claim to myself.
I am stronger than individuals, but I am not greater than any of you by any means. I earn my money (and decent money at that) by literally being on
my hands and knees and scrubbing really crappy toilets. I am unheard, despised, and even rebuked for who I am.
As someone once said to me, "You have the intelligence, the charisma, and the power to do whatever you want."
And my response was, at the time, "what? And be just like all of these other meat heads? I refuse."
Do you know what you learn from scrubbing toilets as a job? You learn a whole heck of a lot of you're not thoughtless. You learn peoples' habits,
who is actually clean and who is actually not, who pretends, who does not; you learn what real cleaning is and not fake cleaning; you learn what
people see and what they don't see; you learn who is ignorant and who is observant; you learn how to make white instead of how to spread mess; you
learn how to clean glass without effort (and most people fail at cleaning glass even if they spend their entire day working at it); if you clean
properly, your arms become stronger and leaner than everyone, and they don't know why. They say, "What do you do, work out or something?" Because
they have never cleaned, not even themselves, though they think they do.
And that's just scrubbing toilets, and that's only a fraction of the things you can learn.
There is a lot to cooking; ordering, stocking, prep, sanitizing, presentation, timing, techniques, speed, focus, determination, customer service, or
serving the clients;
And these are all just surface lessons, but the lessons are deeper, the lessons are for within, and for the individual, and for the group, and for the
world, and for the state of the world.
And so it doesn't matter if you pick up a rifle, or scrub toilets, or cook, or roof, or repair, or engineer, or whatever you do. You're learning a
secret about the world.
And with that information, you have a duty to learn that knowledge and to apply it properly. For we are not here to be literal sheep; we are each
here to provide actual and true value.
But very few learn THAT lesson. And so therefore, those that are humble will be great. And those that rest on their laurels will have their laurels
ripped off their walls and their houses will be torched. And those that are without will not suffer without. But those that have stored up for
themselves will lose that to the enemy. And those that are prepared in their hearts will survive. But those that are prepared in their stockrooms
will become targets.
I am not just speaking of the physical world.
You have all prepared in your stockrooms. If you cannot pack up and move yourself and your entire family in less than a couple of hours, you are in
If you have attachments to any possessions, including your own minds and your own bodies, you have failed yourselves. For your spirit is what seeks
freedom. But as long as you are in bondage to yourself and your fears, then you cannot be free, ever.
Therefore are you all easily led under the same banner of rebellion, at the exact moment when you should not be. And I mean the exact moment.
Although I have wisdom to understand that whatever is done, is done, and there was never any other way that it was going to happen...
But, until it has become past, and while it is still yet present, I fight for what is right, right now.
It is fitting that I scrub toilets. I wipe the ass of humanity. If you accept my services, your trash receptacles will be clean once again. But if
the colon is clogged full of junk, then the face cannot cram more into the stomach without getting fatter and slower. But if the colon is cleaned,
then the entire factory is able to function properly.
You are halting progress, you are halting the inevitable, and therefore bringing it upon yourselves.
Instead of sending it down the toilet, you hold it in and let it fester. And therefore your body will see the junk as an invader, and will attack it,
and the body goes autoimmune.
But if the junk is sent down the toilet, then the body is able to utilize its immune response properly; to destroy foreign malicious entities; not its
And so this is how the cancer starts. The body begins to believe, because of a malfunction in the brain, a voice saying, "You are sick, you are
sick!" The body says, "I must be sick!" And it sends its army in on itself to seek the invaders. When no apparent invaders are determined, then
the army must die. Now when the army is dying, the body is saying, "There are rotting invaders inside of me!" And so therefore more army is sent
to destroy that which does not exist. Eventually the army begins killing its own body parts for a need to destroy. And then body becomes weary, and
suffers greatly, and attempts to treat the symptoms, instead of understanding the cause. So the brain says, "Let's send tons of radiation in to
kill the monster of an army which we created, and destroy them, before they destroy us." But the army is immune to dying, so it means nothing. But
the body is not immune to dying, so it dies. All that is left is a bunch of jaded cells that will die with its patron.
Here is our country. Seeking enemies from within, which some exist, but destroying the innocent on account of not being able to determine the
But we know from whence the invaders hail.
It is THEM that should be taken out- for they are the brain of the invaders within our body. And if we kill the central nervous system, then the rest
of invader has no power.
But if we sit back and say, "we will not destroy our enemy. No, we are tired of death."
Then that which wearies you, you fear, and will become you.
Do not become cancer.
Then when I am scrubbing your toilets, I will know that I perform a service, and not that I am being paid to keep the dead sanitary.
