Just Spoke W/ Very Senior USN Officer. Says MSM and public school-educated citizenry have No Clue.
Friends and Fiends | 11/10/2010 | Friends and Fiends

Posted on 11/10/2010 4:08:36 AM PST by upstanding

Just spoke with old friend, very senior retired USN skipper. Says his contacts, many of whom were his "boys," are concerned with how stupid the MSM and Americans are and at how the Internet has fueled rampant ignorance.

As I was calling him, he was calling me to call my military and IC friends to have a laugh and share some scotch to ease our aching heads.

Since there's a 300+ thread for ignorance and tin-foil speculation, can we have this one for logic and reason?

A good start would be to reference the thread you are referring to.

Is that the formula to determine how long it will take for someone to post “Bush’s Fault”??

No. I've taken Calculus 101, and can clearly see that proof that the NYSlimes will soon be extinct.

Note on the left of the = sign n(x,t), meaning what is coming next. On the right, it shows first being half of what it was, and then an integral from what was once infinity to become 0. Lastly, at the end of the formula is clearly n(y,t). Its as clear as dy.

WOW

upstanding
Since Aug 2, 2009

Return
Take a little walk to the edge of town
Go across the tracks where the viaduct looms,
like a bird of doom
As it shifts and cracks
Where secrets lie in the border fires,
in the humming wires
Hey man, you know
you’re never coming back
Past the square, past the bridge,
past the mills, past the stacks
On a gathering storm comes
a tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat with
a red right hand

He’ll wrap you in his arms,
tell you that you’ve been a good boy
He’ll rekindle all the dreams
it took you a lifetime to destroy
He’ll reach deep into the hole,
heal your shrinking soul
But there won’t be a single thing
That you can do.
He’s a god, he’s a man,
he’s a ghost, he’s a guru
They’re whispering his name
through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
is a red right hand

You ain’t got no money?
He’ll get you some
You ain’t got no car?
He’ll get you one
You ain’t have no self-respect,
you feel like an insect
Well don’t you worry buddy,
cause here he comes
Through the ghettos and the barrio
and the Bowery and the slums
A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper in his
red right hand

You’ll see him in your nightmares,
you’ll see him in your dreams
He’ll appear out of nowhere but
he ain’t what he seems
You’ll see him in your head,
on the TV screen
And hey buddy, I’m warning
you to turn it off
He’s a ghost, he’s a god,
he’s a man, he’s a guru
You’re one microscopic cog
in his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by
his red right hand

How right he is—and that’s putting it mildly.

What’s about as alarming is how many FREEPERS . . .

think like the MSM about some very critical facts . . . e.g. re these blokes:

Actually, it IS

serious . . .

when so many FREEPERS at this point in time . . . after so much OThuga etc.

. . . who are STILL clueless, terminally ignorant, dismissive and derisive about the truths of these guys, their plans, schemes, goals, methods and strategies . . .

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2475963/posts?page=60#60

They think the watered down GEORGIA GUIDESTONES version is just a quaint socialist TEN COMMANDMENTS of no consequence.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2475963/posts?page=60#60

They think that the forced population reduction schemes to reduce the global population down to 200 mission by wars, engineered plagues, engineered famines etc. are just idle fantasies instead of efforts already well underway.

They think globalist Ted Turner’s wish to come back reincarnated as a deadly-to-humans pathogen was just an idle rich guy’s musings instead of a commentary on what he and the ‘UNgood ole boys’ have been working hard toward for 110 years.

They think that abortion is merely a liberal CHOICE instead of a population reduction DECISION mandated by powerful globalists around the world.

They think the globalist conspiracy is merely a looney theory instead of 110+ year established fact verified by thousands of documents and former insider whistle-blowers.

They prefer to pretend that they are true blue patriotic well-informed Conservative Christians instead of willfully blind and ignorant birds with their heads in the sand.

And many powerful FREEPERS keep silent rather than offend the sensibilities of other powerful FREEPERS . . . after all . . . is just an opinion. Why risk a banning, right?

This is just a mutual tea party affirmations club. We don’t really need to speak the TRULY PATRIOTIC TRUTH AND FACTS ABOUT OUR SURVIVAL on FR. What a bother that would be.

RIDICULE has long been one of the most effective tools of the globalists and their MSM propagandists. It’s still greatly in control on FR. Ain’t that sweet.

Laugh. Point the clueless finger. Ridicule. Whistle by the graveyard. Go ahead and whistle smugly by the burning edifi of a once and maybe future great land. Of course the willfully blind see things best. Just ask them.

Continue to help make certain that the greatest Conservative site in the world will be one of the last groups on the planet to wake up and smell the globalist machine’s napalm nuking our Constitution and freedoms by the minute.

What a grand patriotic duty that is—handing out blindfolds—on the Premier Conservative website—the somewhat-freeRepublic.

Or have we been given an unrefusable offer, if we are to be ALLOWED by the globalist powers that be to stay open online? Is that the explanation?

Or have early placed disinfo agents been wielding unreasonable liberal/communist/socialist/globalist influence on FR from the beginning?

Why all this uninformed, thoroughly ignorant dismissive derisiveness toward

VERY PATRIOTIC, CRUCIAL, SURVIVAL ISSUE LEVEL CONSERVATIVE AND REALITY BASED FACTS AND ISSUES???

What’s behind it?

Why are so many !!!CONSERVATIVES!!!! !STILL! SOOOOOOOOOOOO CLUELESS?

AFTER 2 YEARS OF DESTROYER IN CHIEF OTHUGA????????????

What’s the explanation? This psychologist/sociologist wants to know.

I thought OThuga woke a lot of FREEPERS up. I guess I was wrong or the percentages were a fraction of what I’d hoped for.
