Food Stamp Cuts Set To Kick In, Congress Not Paying Attention

Food Stamp Cuts Set To Kick In, Congress Not Paying Attention

“It's about time. The few of us who actually still have jobs are getting tired of paying everyone else's unemployment, welfare, and food stamps. Maybe all the leeches who are worried about their free handout going away need to get together and farm something and give it to me for free to thank me for all the meals I've paid-for for them and their families.”

“SNAP isn't just for leeches. Many who paid taxes for over 40 yrs. need/ recieve SNAP benefits. So don't make them suffer for the leeches. You don't pay anyone's unemployment. To get unemployment they have to have worked and their boss paid in (boss as in the one who laid them off.....)
I'm sure God will recognize your pefection & give you a special halo.....”

“I don't claim to know the truth about this but I do know enough to know that most of the "official stories" of the Boston Marathon bombings stink to high-heaven, including this one (something tells me the FBI didn't just "accidentally" execute their star-witness). The level of stink to this particular event seems to even exceed the level of stink coming from previous similar events (meaning fake/set-up/staged/enabled "terrorist attacks" on the psyche of the American people created/enabled by the very same entities who are supposed to be protecting the American people). I will trust my gut-instinct on this one, thank you... There was probably no knife involved, this execution was probably not just an accident or a case of misconduct... This is just another supporting cover-story... Oops the FBI messed-up again, aw shucks folks...”

“I can't help wondering about how the whole "witness de-briefing" part of this. Were all witnesses questioned? Has everyone thought to have been in the theater that night been accounted for? Howcome so many witnesses but so few being reported in the news, & Howcome not a single comment seems to have been reported about the debriefing experience itself? What was that like for victims - were they considered suspects? Were they allowed to communicate with loved-ones that night at-all or we're they just whisked-away to be questioned? Was the line of questioning at-all "suggestive?"/leading as far as certain aspects like whether or not there appeared to be an accomplice? (as some Columbine witnesses later reported of their own de-briefing experience)?”

“I would have just laughed at this story had I not seen the Lil Wayne video released just 2 days before the shooting happened (which is loaded with Satanic/Illuminati/occult symbolism & includes a woman in a very Batmanesque mask and a movie theater scene with live children sitting in the audience amongst 12-14 skeletons). "Demonic" possession (via human henchmen?) is definitely not completely implausible in my opinion.”

“So that's what you take away from lil wayne, that demonic possession is plausible?

Rap music sure has gone down hill.......”

“Don't forget about the broken rear car window. why did the have to break a window, was he locked inside the car? Was he conscious? (and if he wasn't, due to being on-serious-drugs, do we really think it's plausible that he actually did it - and then stripped off all his gear, locked himself in the car, & passed out in < 5 min?). And what about the witness who says they saw someone take a phone call & possibly propped the door - regardless of the riot-gear the shooter was wearing later-on, no one seems to be saying this possible door-propping person was either wearing riot-gear OR had circus-red hair, so who was it - the REAL "Joker" who got away? There are too many questions here for us to say this kid is guilty.”

“The bloke who opened the emergency exit door was obviously Holmes himself wearing a cap to hide his red hair He knew he couldn't get in from the outside. So he buys a ticket early, goes in sit in the front row next to the outside isle. Does anyone hear his phone ring. No, most people would have the ring tone turned off and the vibrator turned on in a theater so people don't get disturbed. So he just PRETENDS to get a call as an excuse to go out through the emergency exit door to take the call, looking as if he can't be bothered walking back out to the foyer to take it. He drops something on the ground to prop open the door so it cant close behind him. It's not the proper thing to do but nobody gives a damn. He's gone 20 minutes, plenty of time to deck himself out and back in he comes spraying lead. Simple. No giant conspiracies to tip even more Holmeses over the edge.”

“Questions: Why was a 2nd gas-mask found by Theater 8? Howcome there appear to be arterial blood sprays going from Theater 8 to Theater 9? Why would a killer dressed for full combat take off all his gear and just wait in his car to surrender? How did someone with no experience in explosives booby-trap the apartment? Did Holmes actually ever practice shooting at a gun range (only stories I've read on that are about the gun range where he never showed-up). Are we sure the guy in the courtroom is even James Holmes? Who opened the back door to theater 9? Is it just a coincidence that the suspect's undergrad "mentor" experimented with temporal mind-control? Is there a chance that subliminal messages in the violent movie-trailer "hypnotized" the audience into non-resistance? Howcome Lil Wayne released a video 2 days beforehand that included numerous Satanic & Illuminati symbolism, including a woman in Batman-esque mask and movie theater scene with 12-14 skeletons in the audience? Is it just a coincidence that Holmes' father was a key witness in the Libor-scandal hearings? These questions mean NO disrespect to the victims of this atrocity, but are we really sure this apparently super-drugged guy actually pulled this all off by himself and isn't some kind of a drugged/mind-controlled "patsy" for something even bigger and more evil than we are thinking?”

Paluxy Moon on Jul 30, 2012 at 19:28:42

“Wow, OK. I've read about mind control, enough to know that he'd had to've been subject to it way before the college mentor. And you say the dad was a key witness in Libor? Do you have any links?”

“Wow! Right up there with Lincoln, both Kennedys, Micheal Jackson, and a few others. In the poster words of Fox Mulder, "I want to believe", too. I guess it's possible. We're all in trouble if your theories are correct.”

“They have the wrong guy. I looked at the photo of James Holmes School id and the red haired big eyed guy in the courtroom and it's definitely not the same person. The eyebrows, the eyes, the nose, the years and the lips do not match up. They have the wrong guy! The real "Joker" got away and it's all a joke to him. What a shame. No wander this guy is saying he has no idea why he is behind bars. I really believe the real killer got away. Why would he just hang around in the parking lot to get caught and not resist arrest? Makes not sense.”

“Let's not forget the gunshots that were fired from the grassy knoll.”

“I find no reference to a "second gas mask". The mask was found some distance away near the corner of the building, but I have only seen that the single mask was reported.

That is the nature of your "information". It has been twisted and sometimes just made up in order to sound more meaningful than it really is.”

“It's so discouraging to see the "lynch mob" out there.

So many people ready to execute this kid already when NO ONE can positively identify the shooter from the way he was reportedly dressed (in a dark theater no-less), and since all of the evidence has been "sealed" from the public, we really have no "proof" of ANYthing (except that people were shot-at)!

There ARE witnesses who say the shooter was yelling & making people stand up before he shot them, but most news stories (like this one) prefer to go with the "strangely calm & quiet" version (because it better matches the drugged passive guy sitting in a car out back?)

Isn't it plausible when you really look at the scant evidence released so-far that almost all of it could have been completely done by someone else (maybe a fellow expert in neuroscience was able to drug & manipulate him into dying his hair red, buying some guns, etc? Maybe that's why he appears so drugged & says he doesn't remember because maybe he is/was heavily drugged/brainwashed and really didn't do it or doesn't remember doing it?)

But the booby-traps, the notebook confession, the riot-gear & ammo ordered online, the gun-range where he never showed-up, etc - couldn't ALL of that pretty easily have been done by a 3rd party (including perhaps the shooting itself) who really wanted to make it LOOK just exactly the way it does right now?”
