Working in a previous position part of the very fine US government, all I have to say is that you will find corruption everywhere you go. I'm definitely not surprised by any of this, letalone not surprised by any sort of "capability" that the government truly has. Pretty sad what everything is coming to, really...

I don't hate Pilot as much as Judas... I'm not surprised by revelations from people like Snowden, it's when the so-called "free press" just stops talking about it, or starts lying outright, that I get really pi$$ed. Like I'm supposed to believe a woman who everyone says was happy just decided to ram the White House. No front-end damage to her vehicle in any of the propaganda pieces the corporate media is putting out but hey, you gonna believe your own eyes or the government? TV isn't like the Interwebs, everything on Faux News is true.

Oh, and never forget 9-11 was an inside job http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qb114u7BQU because science says so.

I don't know what happened in that incident, but it sounds extremely suspicious. I'm thinking the only way to be safe in USSA is to have your own armored car and always wear a business suit. Why ? Because I've never heard of cops shooting someone in a business suit and inside an armored car, and for no reason.

What makes you think you should judge corp769 to be a conspiracy theorist I wonder?

I didn't, Copr is in the military and from what I know of him he is a proud member of the military.

Correct. I should have put it in [sarcasm] [/sarcasm] tags so the intent could be recognised.

Sorry for causing confusion.

Yeah, the military is bringing back all their civilian contractors now too. It's a real shutdown because, er, uh, "dah gubmint sez so." Now lets go kill some Libians who were formerly freedom fighters taking out Khadafi for the USA, like Bin Laden used to do against the soviets. They've outlived their usefullness and have too many weapons (which we gave them.)

Seig heil fatherland, er, motherland, uh, homeland, yeah, homeland, that's the ticket!

And I am even more proud to be out of the military.... I get the big picture, and it's a sad world indeed. Not saying I think conspiracy is a crock of s**t, but I just laugh at everything anymore. *shrugs*

Ninja edit - Everything is really confusing in this country anymore. To be quite honest, I would rather not be part of this "American culture," but hey... You give some, you get some. Maybe our morals need to be re-checked? Laws need to be questioned more? I wasn't trying to start anything, I can promise you that. Science is 100% where it's at when you think about it. Math, proof, etc. So I understand what is being said. It's when someone just shoves the "ooo a conspiracy theory" thing out there that gets me.

Yeah, definitely. If I had the funds, I would move out quicker than anything and enjoy myself even more.

And thanks to my military and government service, I now question everything even more than I used to.
