Actually I do keep up with some current events.  I did see the 7 year olds having their hands scanned at the cafeteria line. ( NWO Indoctrination)

As far as the military goes.  It doesn't matter how big your military is if as on 9-11, the brass in charge yells "STAND DOWN!!"

You can have the most HUMONGOUS military in the world.  Its still not gonna protect you from false flag attacks.

Apparntly you dont remember your history.  The gulf of tonkin and the reichstag?

I thought you were a Republican?  Ron Paul is not a good enough patriot for you?  Go ahead vote for Obama again.

But I am totally for Carolans at lunch time.  It would give me something to look foward to after all those teachers put me to sleep.

Keeping up with current events and keeping up with conspiracy theories are two different things. One's informative, one's loony.

I see you're committed to the Ron Paul strategy of dismantling the military, sticking our heads in the sand and hoping for the best. Yeah, that'll work. Maybe if we're nice to the religious fanatics who are committed to destroy us, they'll change their minds and be happy shiny people.

I know all about false flags and The Reichstag and the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. What's the point?

You think I'm a Republican and then you tell me to go ahead and vote for Obama again?  ??? ??? ???

Ron Paul is a patriot? Patriots don't disarm and hope for the best while leaving their families and nation unprotected against bloodthirsty madmen who have pledged to kill us all. Patriots defend their countries.

    The point is that all war is staged illusion.

    Patriots dont start illigitimate wars looking for imaginary WMD.

    Ron Paul is for defending the constitution.  Something that Bush and Obama are pretty good at trying to desecrate.

    Dont forget those blood thirsty madmen, work for the C.I.A.  Maybe you didn't know we trained osama bin laden to be a great terrorist.  So we could defend ourselves from the Soviet Union.

    Its not a conspiracy theory when its true.

    Conspiracy theory is a term the establishment uses to slander people as loony instead of revealing the true facts.

    Invading Iraq, Syria, Egypt, possibly Iran, doesn't make me feel any safer.  I bet you believe we need to invade IRAN so we can be safe.

    Ron Paul doesn't believe we should be the policeman of the world.  Thats called facism.  Maybe you should read up on your history again.

    Maybe you just like being groped by the TSA when you go on flights, and living in a total recall type of world.  No thank you.

    People are just people wherever you go.  Maybe you would learn that if you get out of them darn hills.

      Like wow man, if I ever start dropping acid I'll come back and contemplate that one, dude. Far out. Gnarly. Rad. Groovy.

       

      "Patriots dont start illigitimate wars looking for imaginary WMD."

      Yeah, I know. They should throw down their weapons and hope for the best while hiding with the women and children. If worse comes to worse, they could just beg and plead for their lives, right? Cuz once they disarm themselves they pretty much have to do whatever the bad guys tell them to do. Sounds like fun.

       

      "Ron Paul is for defending the constitution."

      Ron Paul is fine with domestic policy and the Constitution as it pertains to it.

      On foreign policy however - he's a nutjob.

      A very dangerous nutjob with chronic tunnel vision.

       

      "Invading Iraq, Syria, Egypt, possibly Iran, doesn't make me feel any safer."

      I'm glad, cuz we never invaded Syria or Egypt or Iran.

       

      "Ron Paul doesn't believe we should be the policeman of the world.  Thats called facism.  Maybe you should read up on your history again."

      Unilaterally disarming and hoping for the best is not good foreign policy strategy - it's a death wish.

      And if you think Ron Paul is some kind of saint you should check out his racist rants sometime - http://www.loop21.com/top-5-racist-ron-paul-quotes-newsletter . And when a racist gets in power his racism soon turns to fascism. 

       

      "People are just people wherever you go."

      No they're not. There are some very dangerous people in this world who are intent on killing us, who are kept at bay by people willing to do what you think we ought not to do. And those are the people who provide the secure bubble from whence you safely pontificate about the error of their ways.

        No we didn't invade Syria or Egypt, we only funded, provided weapons and assisted members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al queda to rise up against their own governments.  The same madmen you are afraid of, we are still assisting.  How ironic.

        Boy Ridge, stay away from the 151 proof moonshine, its gonna make your head cloudy, when you are walking up in those hills, after coming from your stills, you wont know if its a DEA terrorist or a sasquatch coming for you.

          No, actually we didn't fund, assist or provide weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood or Al Qaeda in Syria or Egypt. And I'm not afraid of any madmen. But I'll be d*mned if I'd disarm and surrender without a fight like your heroes Ron Paul and Obama want to do. You must be French.

          And maybe a swaller o' hooch might keep you from thinkin' all them crazy thoughts like ya do.

            how nutty of a notion is it.?..stop pissing countries off and getting involved in thier internal conflicts and they may have a tendency to leave us alone???....

            You've got to admit rigde we ain't exactly making any friends just about anywhere anymore.

            We can't just keep putting the world in a headlock to bend to our ways and expect that it's not going to backfire at some point.

              Defending our borders and airspace is absolutely essential.

              Forcing our philosophies and regimes down the throats of middle east countries, is utterly insane, and putting us in harms way.

              As long as we maintain our military's strength, we have no business telling the rest of the world how to govern themselves.

              With record deficits, our economy going down the toilet, and a moral crises to contend with, don't we have enough of our own problems?

                Stop pissing countries off? How? Like not hijacking their planes and flying them into their skyscrapers? Like that?

                Is there a chance maybe you could tell them that?

                Or should we apologize for polluting their lands with our Christian presence while we developed their oil industry and built all their oil wells for them so they could get rich and start exporting their hate?

                We should hope that they may have a tendency to leave us alone?

                No, we are Americans, we lead, we don't cower in the corner hoping the bad guys will leave us alone and pick on somebody else. Do you live your life like that? I don't.

                Why do libs always think that we're the bad guys? 

                Exactly how do we stop pissing them off? The Egyptians hate us and we give them billions in aid every year. Is that pissing them off? Or is it their nutty religion? You tell me. We give aid to the Palestinians and Hamas on a regular basis also and they danced in the streets when they saw the towers fall. They hate our guts. Osama Bin Laden is like a national hero there.

                You can't hope for love from people like these.

                You have to command respect.

                And showing indecisiveness and vacillation and limp-wristed resolve with a military in decline and retreat to these people is like an old lion limping in front of a pack of hyenas - when they detect weakness they go in for the kill. They don't care what you used to be - if you show weakness - you're dead meat.

                Some people in life just have to be kept in line or they'll do bad things; we all know people like that. You can't let them push you around or it will only get worse. That's just a fact of life. Some people just won't act right unless you keep your boot on their neck, and that will never change.

                And one thing is for sure, if you don't keep your boot on their neck, they will sooner or later have their boot on yours.

                  The Justice Department, through its interpretation of the Wire Act, has already virtually opened the door to internet gambling and it's extremely doubtful with the mess we're in from the current administration that the new administration would waste any time acting on one obscure sentence added to the Platform to assuage a special interest group when Platforms are routinely ignored.

                  No one swears any oath to uphold or enforce any item in any Platform and very few even pay any attention to it. Dam* few read it or have any idea what's in it. It's largely ceremonial and soon forgotten. Most people know what each party's general principles and core values are and don't have to look up chapter and verse to find out.

                  And even if it were a looming threat (which it isn't), anybody who would cast their vote to ensure a convenience in lottery playing over the survival of the nation in one of the most dangerous times in world history would have to be a complete imbecile.

                  My source was the Poker Players Alliance that doesn't care which party is in control as long as they pass an Internet Poker Bill. They were equally disappointed when the Democrats failed to mention Internet gaming on their platform.

                  However there is a huge difference between being silent on a subject and being openly opposed. I'm pretty sure the American people in this election as well as in every other election will vote for the candidate who they believe will benefits them the most regardless what other voters think.

                    If you are undecided and dont know who to vote for than just think who of the two candidates is the lesser of the two

                     

                    Manchurians.

                     

                    If you are a lottery player,

                    Vote Democrat

                    Not repugnikan.

                     

                    Besides the only sane vote is for ron paul.

                    But the insane establishment would never let a sane man on the ballot.  Who would of thunk?

                     

                    P.S.  With all the turmoil in the Middle East and world wide It seems that Democrats and Republicans cant stop their murderous ways and blood lustRed Devil, but please please, please

                     

                    dont murder Big Bird.Turkey

                    I mentioned the Republican Party platform because someone said they are interested in how it will play out. Speaker of the House John Boehner said he has never read a platform and as Rdgrnr said, platforms are not written in stone. If Internet gaming is your deciding factor, it depends if you think Romney would veto or sign an Internet Gaming Bill.

                    Personally I'd rather try to pick winning lottery numbers than to try to pick the winner in presidential elections.

                      Defending our borders and airspace is absolutely essential.

                      Forcing our philosophies and regimes down the throats of middle east countries, is utterly insane, and putting us in harms way.

                      As long as we maintain our military's strength, we have no business telling the rest of the world how to govern themselves.

                      With record deficits, our economy going down the toilet, and a moral crises to contend with, don't we have enough of our own problems?

                      You make far too much sense... which means Ridge will likely accuse you of being a flaming liberal.

                      We do not need to rule the world with an iron fist.  Furthermore, given the nature of the threats today, a huge military may hinder us more than it would help.  For the most part, our enemies are not nations, they are individuals and small groups, and we need to be nimble so that we can target them while minimizing collateral damage.

                        My source was the Poker Players Alliance that doesn't care which party is in control as long as they pass an Internet Poker Bill. They were equally disappointed when the Democrats failed to mention Internet gaming on their platform.

                        However there is a huge difference between being silent on a subject and being openly opposed. I'm pretty sure the American people in this election as well as in every other election will vote for the candidate who they believe will benefits them the most regardless what other voters think.

                        Well, I know the American people are smart enough to put the survival of the nation ahead of a false rumor about the lottery when they vote. Just because the Poker Players Alliance which is apparently composed of incredibly stupid people focused on a single dimensional issue is advocating for the Democrats, it doesn't foretell a sea change in voting preferences. Stupid people will always vote for stupid things.

                        And let's face it, the Democrats have had the "stupid vote" wrapped up for a long, long time now.

                            F**K That mediabrat. I agree with ridge.  Our military is nearly not big enough.  I think we should raise taxes to ensure we finally have the biggest military in the world.   I think we should never settle for being number two.  I mean F**K what the rest of the world thinks.  When will we finally have the biggest goddarn military in the world? I dunno.

                            I mean when  9-11 happened we didn't have not one single plane to scramble! Ridge is right our military was too small to scramble.  BIGGER!!! BETTER!! BADDER!!

                            (Maybe Ridge doesn't realize but since an airplane once crashed into the EMPIRE STATE building, all large skyscrapers are engineered to withstand the impact of large airplanes) 

                            And WTC building 7 coveniently collapses in a controlled demolition after Larry Silverstein the lease holder orders the building to be pulled.  Explain that one ridge. And FEMA clean up crews were in N.Y. the Monday before 9-11 to prepare for cleanup.  Explain that one ridge.  Oh FOX news told you?  Wow thanks that cleared it up for me. Just do a search for TOM KENNEY one of the Fema clean up crew.

                              As a matter of fact it already is the biggest!!  But it should be bigger!!  And we should put our boot on the neck of the world too!  And thrust it down with a vigourous crunch. Long live the New World Order.

                            But i digress.  I just want to play my lottery game online.  Is that too much to ask?

                            Can the U.S.  the greatest country in the world really be that f**king backwards?

                              Yeah they wrapped it up in a man named George W. Bush.Roll Eyes

                              The guy only got into harvard probably because he is a legacy.
