I love when the government tells you that the taxes are going up by 10%, then when they go up by only 8%, they tell you that there was a 2% tax cut and you should thank them.

Gov: "We're coming to rape your ass."
Citizen: "WHAT THE f***?"
Gov: "Calm down, don't worry, it's just the tip"

Except that vaccines are safe and effective. Always believe that 100% because that's the 1 thing the government wouldn't never lie about........

I don't, because even when they say that, they're still lying by omission.

"Taxes will increase. " (but only for you, or people that make more than you.... the FSA shitheads you hate, well, they're getting another big handout/discount, but we won't be vocal about that for obvious reasons)

Good point.

====================



Imagine one of your friends tells you he knows your wife has been screwing around behind your back. You have known your wife for 20 years - and you believe she loves and that she would never do such a thing.

So the most likely outcome here is that you believe your friend is an ahole and is lying to you. So now you don't talk to your friend any more.

One day you come home and find a strange men's sock on the bedroom floor. You think nothing of it and figure it's your son's sock. The next week you find out there's been a rash of break-ins around the
neighborhood - so you install a camera system. Your wife is out of town - and you forget to tell her. A couple of weeks later - you get an email alert about activity at your house in the middle of the day.
That night - you go home and see your wife and some guy coming home in the middle of the day - spending a half hour or so inside - and then leaving. She's looks like she really likes the guy in the video.

So now you're suspicious that something is going on. So you hide a camera in the bedroom. It only takes a couple of days before you've got full color 1080p video of some guy banging your wife. The worst part
is she looks like she's really enjoying it.

So you confront her - she admits it - and tells you it's been going on for 15 years.

Now you realize that everything you thought you knew - is a lie.

See here's the thing: Reality never changed. It was just your perception of reality that changed - and it only changed when the evidence was shoved in your face. Your friend knew what was going on - and as the whole thing evolves - you find out a whole bunch of other people knew too. The retired guy across the street knew damn well what was going on. Suddenly all those comments he was making make perfect sense.

The retired guy and your friend both had theories - they didn't know for sure - but all the signs were there. It just made sense. You on the other hand were ignorant - and a little bit stupid - because you ignored what was right in front of your face. It took watching your wife engage in some hard core porn type shit to finally pull your head out of your ass and come to grips with what was going on for a LONG time.


This is pretty much what has been going on with people who are saying " conspiracy theory is becoming fact more and more each day". It was always FACT - people just wouldn't admit it to themselves.

Why would Assad be using chemical weapons?
They same reason they have always been used , as a terror weapon against his enemies.
He knows the worst we are going to do is maybe blow up some more of his toys which will be replaced by Russia in a week., that's it.

It makes no sense at all for Assad to use them. It makes all the sense in the world for the other side (us, basically) to frame him. Shit stinks, starting with the fact that nobody has a shred of evidence that he did it.

About the only thing that makes me think he wouldn't give a shit about using them is his use of barrel bombs, tons of videos show the regulars just spraying those things
wherever without giving a shit who they kill with them, etc.

The fun thing about the gas attacks though... seemingly at least the first time it supposedly happened, nobody had any pictures / video of the planes dropping the munitions or anything like that... to say some of the "assad used gas!!!!" stuff is suspicious is an understatement.

Hell, saddam had NBC agents and even when he flung scuds at israel during the Gulf War, he still wasn't stupid enough to put nerve agents on those
rockets.... because he knows that chem weapons actually being used outside of his country would be a geopolitical game changer- and that israel would go off
leash and probably pop a tactical nuke or two on Baghdad.

People also don't learn. They were told this is the way things are - the founding documents of the country were written around these types of human behavior. The people who wrote the documents knew damn well what reality was - they had just lived it. It's why there is that famous quote " if we do not hang together - we will surely hang separately" - it's because the men who just fought the revolution knew damn well what the British crown's minions were capable of.

Somewhere along the line people started not only forgetting these FACTS - they started outright DENYING them.

IMHO somebody who engages in this level of reality denial is not a real American. A real American remembers how the country got started and WHY it was setup the way it was and this underlies their understanding of WHY the second amendment is so important - and why it protects the first.

When they shut down the first - and try to come for the second - it really is time for people to start getting shot.

At this point they're just flinging poo against the wall to see what sticks.

Assad and his military have been accused of using gas agents so many times in the past it's become a boy who cried wolf type situation. Multiple accusations - multiple accusations proven false. The leftist - statist -neocon shits who keep trying to run this game are like an 80's band that had one good hit and can't seem to realize it's time to hang it up.

Given how many times he's been accused of using gas in the past - Assad would have to be a moron to try it at this point. And I don't think he's survived this long by being a moron.

There's another side to this.....basically its an opportunity for the russians to field test everything they want against US gear to see what floats/sinks

Most recently they tested jamming many/most drone GPS as per recent news reports

It goes both ways

Personally I'd like to see us not involved in any of this shite.......but there's an upside to field testing stuff/determining weak points/flaws........and everyone knows that GPS is a major weak point......one of the reasons the chicoms have been testing capability to shoot down satellites
