First, I’m not sure there’s any point to writing this. Aside from the fact this blog has fallen off rather dramatically, the subject of 9-11 is not a big favorite her or anywhere. However, I was taking a nice walk this morning and the though came into my head to write a diary on this subject. It may be one of my last ones–I’m kind of through being concerned about the political and cultural situation in this country. It has gone way too far into fantasy such that any kind of intelligent discussion is almost impossible since we have, even if we don’t admit it, lost sight of the foundations of Western Civilization which is the rationalistic “Great Conversation” as Mortimer Adler called it. Reasonable arguments go nowhere and are, in fact, automatically discounted usually as “conspiracy theories” since it is almost illegal to parse data and seek patterns. I will make absolutely no case for alternate explanations of 9/11, there’s no point–my beef is not with arguing the patterns that present themselves on the basis of available evidence–that’s a worthwhile argument. My beef is, as I’ve indicated, with the fact that any argument based on facts that goes contrary to beliefs that make people feel good is not only discounted but is utterly out of the question.
I want to examine, briefly, just how different the world is now than it was ten years ago. Frankly, if I think about it too deeply I want to weep not just for our political situation but for myself who is now living in an irrational world. I feel I am falling with no place to plant my feet and the sad part is that I see other people in the same situation only they don’t even know it. If you turn off your consciousness, if you devolve, morally, spiritually and intellectually then you are fine–that sense of “falling” I describe is not perceivable unless you are sensitive to the historical and spiritual dimension.
In a move sure to create controversy in [redacted] and other sites around the blogosphere, an anonymous, off the record spokesperson for [redacted] confirmed that
The FAQ says no conspiracy theories, no exceptions. Certainly this poster was aware of the rule, he or she chose to ignore it, and we decided to ban this person immediately. Any other remaining posters using this website, caught uprating other users who uprated the banned user, will be warned once and their posting ability suspended for the next 2,666 years until a bipartisan tribunal can be assembled to judge the purity of their thoughts and the intent of their actions.
We here at [redacted] take election integrity very seriously. We’ve banned thousands of people for far more, and we’ll ban as many people as possible for far less, for even having these impure thoughts.
We have an election to win. Look forwards, not back.
Example of Irish people being subversive and undermining the American pragmatic progressive agenda. Note upraised arms and dancing in audience, outside the white castle walls, clear indications of wanting a unicorn.
This is Amerika, Damnit ! We don’t DO unicorns! We do Hope Nobody Notices!
Jessie Ventura is now doing a series on CT subjects on TruTV. Some in the CT community desperate to get the word out are happy yet upset about the dramatic feel of the show. The beef is that newcomers to CT theories will just dismiss something which has a ghostbusters aura to it. My mind was only opened up enough via a full year of expat assignment. Most are just sucked back into “reality” via the media matrix programming.
We need to expand the boycott to all of FOX, not just Beck
BillO to Beck “I’m not a fear mongerer like you”
First O’Reilly asks Beck about Rep Inglis’s (R-SC) statement on Glenn Beck at a town hall where he said “The suggestion was Glenn beck. Here’s what I suggest. Turn off the TV. If you trade on fear, what you’re doing is, your not leading, your just following fearful people.”
The plaster the founding fathers and claim 1st amerndment rights. The problem isn’t their first Amendment rights, but how they use these images to influence the easily deceived to act against their own interests and in favor of special interests.
Free speech is not a problem until special interests try to buy up yours.
Meet the kings of phony astroturfed protest groups opposing change, reform, President Obama and whatever else you got except free market ideology and cutting taxes (for the rich).
How do Joe The Plumber, racism, Republicans, Nazis, Ron Paul supporters, NWO CT theorists, ACORN CT theories, teabaggers, Oil industry insiders, free market advocates and health care opponents all tie in together?
No. Only professionals are capable of this sort of co-ordination.
The stupidity is just icing on the home made Entenmann’s cake.
GOP congressmen run from blogger asking ‘birther’ questions
Mike Stark of Firedoglake and Huffington Post thinks he has stumbled onto the reason George W. Bush was elected to the presidency twice: The GOP’s base, as exemplified by this ubiquitous “birther” nonsense, must be Insane.
In the video below, he puts the birther fictions before a series of Republican congressmen on the hill, and their reactions are priceless.
