    Are Americans just naturally getting stupider every decade or are we being brainwashed. It seems with every passing year some new act or bill is passed that takes away our freedoms as americans. Children in schools are getting stupider. Why? Not because they can't learn, because they surely can learn. I think its bcause our government wants our ciizens of following generations to be dumber then the previous. This way such ACTS like the HSA can be passed without resistance from the public. Is our government becoming an absolute fascist power?

    Recently i took a look at the Homeland Security Act and this is a general difinition of what it says - The HSA is a sweeping anti-terrorism bill giving federal law enforcement agencies broad powers to monitor citizens .

    Hmm, the ability to monitor us if we are suspected to being OR not being "terrorists". Kind of contradicts our whole bill of rights and freedom of speech don't you think? If anyone gets out of line the goverment can detain them for being a "terrorist suspect". Kinda sad really that such an act was passed.

    I think the real terrorist is our goverment. They try to instill fear into the public and we eat it up. Such as the stupid terror warnings. The country is in a state of yellow, or orange, or high yellow alert "omg yellow alert i better go buy canned food and some water just incase!!".

    How about that war in iraq? Will it ever be over. WTF did we go there to do in the first place? I thought the terrorists were in afganistan, sheeesh, saddam is dead and we still are there 7 years later. War only serves one purpuse now-a-days, making our federal reserve banks MORE rich. Wars cost money, money that the government needs to borrow from banks. Then who pays it back to the banks, we do. Have we found those WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION YET? That was george bush's favorite word a few years ago. Don't seem to hear it much anymore, seems everyone has forgot about those darn weps of mass destruction.

    So i wonder what is going to come in the following years. Soon, we will have a new president, and their policies will be imposed upon us once again. God knows the new pres. wont be able to clean up the mess in iraq. And what can we do as the public, pretty much nothing but sit on our couch.

    I think we as Americans should wake up and start getting angry about the state of our country. Cause the rich are getting richer, and the rest are just getting poorer, quieter, stupider, and scared. If we don't change soon i think we will become total slaves to our government without realization.

    There are no terriorists, its all just a plan to take our minds away from what is really happening!!!......

    Look up the movie Zeitgeist on the net and watch it....

    Its two hours long, the first 8-9 minutes is some stupid color swirls. The movie is after that. I dont know if I believe all of that, but after alot of research, it is very intriguing.
  4. If you haven't watched the movie Farenheight 911, do so. You will be even more worried about the state of affairs than you are now.

    TTL: What terrifies me is the fact that there are still people out there that still do not know what the Homeland Sheeple Act does. It is designed to turn us into just that, a flock of cowering "sheeple" waiting for their shepherd. Unfortunately, we were 3/4 of the way there, or else the bill would never have passed in the first place.

    Many will still be clueless the day martial law is declared, and we are "escorted" out of our own homes. You wait, it's coming.


    Believe it.

    First of all, ITS A MILITARY OCCUPATION IN IRAQ, not a [censored] War.

    and the rich getting richer, WELCOME TO SOCIETY, it has been that way for 2000 years, why would they let it change now?

    Its an utter and complete waste of money, time, and purpose but you can talk all you want about "getting angry about the state of our country" but besides making this little post what have you really done to go against the system?

    Every HOUR you work, every paycheck you get the goverment is taking money out of your pocket and paying for these things to be done.

    You're trying to be patriot but you're just as much as a stupid american as anybody else.

    Plus what are you going to do? Pick up a gun and shoot an innocent person? Sure they may be guilty in your eyes but they won't be guilty of murder in the general publics, and you will and theyll be dead and youll be in jail or dead as well and someone else will just take their place that isn't you.

    The ONLY way to change things, is to become a crucial part in the goverment and NOT be corrupt, but if you try this you'll learn that it doesn't work like that and i doubt youll get above a mayor or governor but who knows, if enough of us try it will change

    I don't think it's a particularly American problem, the same exists in Europe, in the sense that people tend to look after their own advantages, rather than see the importance of the other nice people in the world.

    The security issues are just government types covering their ass... at one point there will be another terrorist action somewhere in the world... it is just so much easier to be a terrorist than to be the gentle orderly folk, and someone somewhere is going to try that. At that point all CIA, FBI, Mossad, MI5, ... ****heads will want to be able to show that they cannot be blamed for it. And they will show that by showing they took measures. Not by how effective those were, but by the simple fact that they did.
    So basically, they are doing the same, looking after their own advantage. They want to keep their pay and not be blamed.

    Look at it this way... in a traffic accident, would you like to be in the hummer or in the Smart car? I choose to drive a Smart. Not because I am smart, I'm an idiot, but I love people. Most people actually.

    Not many people choose the same, most choose for their own safety, and say: screw global warning, that's for our grandchildren to solve.

    Kind regards

    There will always be those who try to come up with a conspiracy theory in order to sell a book or movie. Whats sad is that people actually buy into their crap.

    Possibly. I said that I didnt know if it was all true or not. Planes definatly hit the towers, but there is no proof whatsoever that a plane hit in PA or at the pentagon. I cannot say whether or not there were actually people on the planes that hit the trade center buildings. I do not know anyone that was affected, or know anyone that knows anyone that was affected. I choose to remain open minded about the subject rather than be pressured to believe that it was all done by terrorists just because they say so.
    Maybe research it some and see how alot of the things dont add up?
