  1. Great post Shabs. Although this is nothing "new", the things people believe today is stunning. Few realize how we are toyed with daily, by the very things that get the most emotional reactions. Most of the BS is used only to get a desired reaction...for example, a site that always pushes doom and gloom, fear, "end of the world" type of mind rape and is covered in ads for "survival foods", because fear always sells something. Alex Jones takes in over 40 million$ per year on sales of various products, sold to those who hang on his every word, that believe everything he tells them, it never matters if it is true, they just believe it, because it reflects how they view their world. Attempting to point that out just makes many of them hostile. Thinking logically and rationally in today's world is damn near revolutionary, and rarely welcome, especially any challenges to what folks believe. People will always seek out those things that support their beliefs...they just never realize that just because one believes in something, that in itself does not make it truth. Truth never needs belief as a validation, it stands firmly upon its own evidence. Only beliefs need validated, because if it takes "belief", then there is a lack of evidence, they are easily challenged, and few ever want to admit what they believe was found to be an illusion. Hope you are well and happy
  2. There is never a shortage of "systems" like this that really only want your money, and to get it, they will promise folks the moon along with the holy grail of trading systems. Their targets are often those who are novice traders, those that rarely have successful trades, and their favorite targets are those who are desperate. Anyone who preys upon people like this are low life's in my opinion. Thanks B/A
  3. Thanks PP. Probably a good idea before it goes too far south as usual when it comes to religion. LGD has the right to choose his own spiritual path, he doesn't need anyone to critique those choices, too many just want to start arguments, shake their fingers at each other, and bash another's faith. All it accomplishes is dragging everyone down to their level. Why not learn to build each other up? Is it really that difficult or do some just need the bickering?
  4. True, but do not most of Washington do that no matter what side they are on? Each believe their party to speak for them, when in reality, that rarely is the case if we look at history, they pretty much do what they want, and throw in a few mentions to their base in order to pacify them, at least this is what I have seen for decades. At least Trump is trying to keep his promises, but gridlock is the order of the day, again, it is how it all seems to operate on both sides. I think often we the people are set aside, with no opportunity to vote on issues I would certainly want to have a say in. That never happens really, we get to vote every few years, meanwhile, a lot of damage can be done during that time, yet we repeat the process and then walk away.
  5. If you can get the actual picture address link, such as on a computer, right click the picture and choose from the menu "Copy Image Address", then paste that address in your post, it will be embedded into the post and show the picture. If you are on a phone, not sure how that operates, but you must get the actual image address to where the pictures reside, then paste that into your post to embed them. Oh sorry, forgot to mention a thank you to Karsten for the actual link, thanks Karsten
  6. Here you go PP, I think This is the hostess for an Italian afternoon TV talk show. And this is the hostess for an American afternoon TV talk show.
  7. Government waste? Congress and the salaries, they vote themselves raises without the peoples consent. Lobbyist buying up politicians for the sake of favoring them, at the expense of the people. Pork barrel spending all the time often based upon those "special" lobbyist paid for political prostitutes. Political parasites that often become wealthy while they serve within Washington, catering to their own careers and ignoring the will of the people. Trillion dollar deficits that keep growing with no end in sight, bank bail outs that rewarded criminals that WE THE PEOPLE were strapped with the expense...(how could that have ever happened without our consent??? Bush admin started it and didn't care, didn't consult we the people, neither did the Obama admin.) "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson, (Attributed) 3rd president of US (1743 - 1826) The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object. Thomas Jefferson
  8. Thanks bigwave. YES, OUR taxpayer dollars are wasted on this and being used illegally. What is represented here is called 'war crimes', using an illegal banned weapon. This is not just Israeli IDF genocidal tactics, but the US has used the same munition inside Syria and Iraq, numerous times, and again, illegal and a war crime. These shameful practices such as this white phosphorous and the use of DU munitions, (Depleted uranium), which also has made many U.S. soldiers sick and caused death due to various blood disorders. Much can be seen here regarding effects: http://gulfwarvets.com/du.htm Also, the use of DU munitions are responsible for generational malformations in new births, such as in Iraq that have been fully documented. https://www.rt.com/news/uranium-birth-defects-fallujah-729/ Just a little digging into this should make all of us sick. In my opinion, if anyone is able to look at the graphics and pictures of entire families such as this family above, or in Syria or Iraq, and NOT have a gut wrenching and repulsed reaction, I would question ones humanity and ability to feel or have empathy. What has happened to so many folks over the last 17 years is we have become numb to the crimes, looked the other way, and ignore most of it. Talk to a few vets, and ask THEM how they feel about what they saw. I have, and those who are honest will tell you a story you may not want to hear. And to think some people actually cheer this activity on? We must be careful not to lose our humanity in the midst of these crimes. No matter what strange religious or political beliefs one has, NOTHING over rules our basic human decency towards each other. For when THAT decency fails, so have we as a people.
  9. Thanks Barb, for being balanced and not in denial that both sides can be militant and crazy. We need to be careful that "we the people" do not enable them.
  10. Sometimes, there IS more to the story than just blindly rejecting some things because Israel is mentioned. Iran gets blamed for everything now, but the details are out there if one dares to search, and those details come from Israel themselves, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot in their own words they supported the groups in Syria, which logically could be more broad...but I guess whatever one wants to believe...but we should be careful not to deny the facts...for the sake of either politics or religious beliefs... https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-14/israels-top-commander-finally-admits-role-syrias-invisible-war The interview constitutes the first time that any current top Israeli military or government official has fully acknowledged sending anything beyond "humanitarian supplies," such as medical aid to Syrian militants seeking to topple the Assad government; and yet it still appears the country's military chief is slow playing the confirmation, only acknowledging the IDF provided "light weapons" — even after years of reporting has definitively uncovered an expansive Israeli program to arm dozens of insurgent groups and pay their salaries, including known affiliates of al-Qaeda in Syria. This comes after the Syrian government has for years accused Israel of partnering with the west and gulf countries, such as the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of funding and weaponizing an al-Qaeda/ISIS insurgency as part of covert regime change operations aimed at Damascus and its allies Iran and Hezbollah. Since then, countries like Qatar have come forward to reveal just how vast their covert role in fueling the Syrian war really was, which we covered in our story, In Shocking, Viral Interview, Qatar Confesses Secrets Behind Syrian War.
  11. Thanks my friend...the very same to you Umbert and to all here, Happy Valentines Day! Hope you have been well and life is treating you good :D
  12. What a great story Shabs! Love it, that boy has a great collection that will likely only grow larger. Thanks my friend, hope you have been well!
  13. My simple thoughts after spending many years inside the church and observing... Beliefs require faith, with little to no evidence. Beliefs often require constant validation form others, approval so to speak, based upon a certain framework, ideology, etc. Perhaps a better description of what many call "truth" would be "hopeful speculation" when it comes to religious matters, no matter the label. Truth never needs defended, it stands on its own, it is evident. What does need defended are beliefs and various ideologies that need constant validation, but cannot be "proven" due to lack of evidence. The truth is many of these matters have resulted throughout history in violence, forced conversions, and always appears to have a large element within for control and power over others by organized religion that is often more concerned about what wealth a person has rather than the love and peace of god. What happens too often is folks trying to protect their beliefs while hearing things that may challenge them. What matters most to me is a person's character, integrity, and the bottom line universal message of most religions...treat others as you would have them treat you. Love your neighbor as yourself, in which we humans have still not understood that...and would rather fight about what we want to be true. If we fail in that, treating others how we desire to be treated, we fail in all of it, and it becomes little more than empty noise and pounding of chests as to who has "truth". Not a single person if they are honest, can with 100% certainty claim what they believe is "truth". The best any of us can do is learn how to treat fellow humans with dignity and respect from the heart. The rest is noise and a bunch of threats people use against each other. Spirituality is personal, no validation needed while seeking peace and unity. Unity never comes from "doctrinal purity" which usually divides, true unity is of the heart. We all know what is most powerful out of faith, hope and love...if the church wants unity, they better get back to love or it all falls apart. Love is patient, love is kind...it never torments nor treats another with contempt.
  14. I agree Pitcher, and have always stated such about both parties being corrupt and their histories certainly support that. To claim one is better than the other when we have seen both do the same things over and over would be cognitive dissonance. True patriots are what we need more of, those whose loyalties are NOT to any political party, but rather to their country and 'we the people'. Thomas Paine once said "A true patriot is one who protects the people from the government". He never mentioned anything about party loyalty nor personality cults which both parties tend to create, along with the resulting division. Thanks Pitcher, hope you are doing well
  15. I think much of the information being spread is based upon this "Q" anonymous character. It started in October of 2017, and claimed then that Hill Clinton would be indicted by end of October that year. Of course that did not happen as well as everything else that has been claimed. As much as we all want to see corruption dealt with and all responsible held accountable, we need to be careful of believing claims just because it is what we want to hear. https://trumptube.tv/donald-trump-rally-speech-video/video/video-q-anon-a-hoax-9-4-18/
