“This is the kind of stuff we know goes on but when we talk about it we are labeled as kwacks. It takes the main stream media to report on it before most people believe anything. This is really troublesome because the main-line media is heavily filtered by money.”

“I haven't read the comments, but what percentage of people actually think this is real?

Overwise~

What percentage of people think this a defaming/slanderous technique?”

“From what I've read the past few hours here, I'd say 98% Huff posters say it's pure, trumped-up BS.”

“Well, now, one of us would have to read through all of the comments to give you that percentage, wouldn't we? I suggest you just take a quick glance and draw your own conclusion.”

Verizon-Google: There's a Hard Rain Coming

Commented Aug 20, 2010 at 21:46:04 in Technology

“I just wanted to tell you that you are not alone. Many of us have come to that conclusion. The solution is to fight for ending the fed. No candidate is worth voting for unless they sign an affidavit to end the federal reserve bank. The fed is the real problem, not dems or reps, not presidents.”

jny429 on Aug 21, 2010 at 09:47:58

“I'm not sure that the fed is THE only problem, but certainly a very large part and ending the fed would go along way to solving the other problems. Every time I read an economic article about our money supply and the purpose of the Fed, I'm dumbfounded that anyone would think that privatizing our money supply was a good idea. I mean seriously- we allow the fed to create our money and then loan it back to us with interest- how much sense does that make?!”

“That is unbelievably horrifying, to say the least. The day my corrupt government demands, authoritatively, that I can't use the internet, in the way that i see fit, to educate myself and others is the day I die a little inside.

“Ron Paul for president. Don't believe the disinformation campaign against Rand Paul. The real problem is not Democrats or Republicans. The real problem is that the Fed controls our government. Ron Paul is for ending the fed. Don't let them distract you will other issues.”

CitizenKane16 on Aug 21, 2010 at 10:40:17

“Ron and Rand are two different people and two very different candidates. Anyone who saw Rand Paul on Rachel Maddow saw him for what he really is so what's the disinformation here? The fact that he is afraid to speak out in public tells the public that he's afraid of opening his mouth and inserting his foot. What kind of candidate is that? Is that what the citizens of Kentucky want in a leader?”

sandracoston on Aug 20, 2010 at 18:25:25

“Ron Paul can talk a good game but when you delve into his views he is just as crazy as his son. Yes wouldn't it be nice if we could trust corporation to do the right thing thus eliminating the need for regulation... yes wouldn't it be nice if we could trust all states to educate our children... Yes wouldn't it be wonderful if we trust our fellow americans to treat each other as equal. Well guess what that is a fantasy and Ron Paul and his son live in that fantasy world. No he would not be good for this country, and you are naive to believe that Rand Paul or his fathers policies could actually work in this country.”

“Ron is also for ending the civil rights act and like his daddy believes the only right is the right to property.”

tm22 on Aug 20, 2010 at 16:31:56

“Rand Paul and his daddy are all for bringing down democracy. They have this conspiracy theory they tried to fly before the election that it was "obvious" that the president used mass hypnosis on everyone...but of course, they can't explain how "mass hypnosis" was transposed to all the Spanish speakers or other languages that heard/watched his speech. It would have taken a "true" of an actor, like Regan to pull some kind of group mind hug, as he was a pro at emoting, capturing the audience, but hey, he was one of them...never mind...keep in mind, trances do not work on the majority, only the vulnerable.

The Rand family should change it's name to "Con-spiracy"; the are driven by bizarre evangelical conspiracies, driven by even more radical literature from the Klan...aw what the heck, just follow the money...liars behind everyone of their "theories".”

“Yep, the two-party party crime family does have a don and it is the Federal Reserve.”

judesuper on Aug 20, 2010 at 15:51:18

“Um...

So if he ends the fed (as in federal government) he'd be out of a job. That's never going to happen. He wouldn't be working so hard to fire himself.”

Obama Muslim Myth on the Rise

Commented Aug 20, 2010 at 03:41:09 in Politics

“How can you personally believe that he is Muslim when you don't know for sure. All this says is that what the public thinks to be true is more important than what is actually true.

Democracy is the worst form of government. 51% majority rule controls what the other 49% do. This is just a way to control us. I don't want to be required to do something just because 51% decided it's best for them. That goes against my freedoms as an individual.”

“The internet has done nothing but provide a way for artist to flourish, like never before. All artist's should self publish. Everyone knows the record companies had all the control, they decided if you made it or not. Hence, all the manufactured junk popular music. If you do make it they take all of your profits.

As far as I'm concerned the music industry destroyed themselves, by being greedy. I wonder if this article is about planting the ideal that destroying net neutrality as a good thing.”

Verizon-Google: There's a Hard Rain Coming

Commented Aug 19, 2010 at 22:54:25 in Technology

“Some don't understand the seriousness of a "verizon-google" pact. They think it has to do with speeding up the internet for future 3d type architectures, and they won't even notice. Now It may be true, the infrastructure needs updating, but proposing to close the open internet is not doing much to convince me a pact is needed(In the past we always upgraded the infrastructure when more bandwidth was needed, and I doubt we have exhausted all of our options[fiber]). Don't let them use that as an excuse, is my point.

It's good that we are able to see through to the real intentions; your writings really help clarify and make intelligible the true focus of this battle.”

“The "Dispersant" is to the "Oil" in the ocean as "Monoxide" is to "Coal" on land. Let me explain.,

Washington discovered that coal polluted the atmosphere with fly ash and sulfuric acid. Gasoline, of course, substitutes Carbon Monoxide for fly ash. Monoxide isn't really as objectionable because it's invisible, and who believes in what he can't see? Unless he happens to breath too much of it. Then it doesn't matter what he believes.”

“I like it! I'm also a Ron Paul, Rand Paul supporter. Rand Paul is being setup with disinformation campaigns all over the place. Their own Republican party is against them. (Rands' stance that public owners should be allowed to discriminate against anyone they don't like didn't sit right with me though.) Even with that being said it's a huge step forward, despite the (rep) badge.”

“They will use everything they have against us. This is going to be an information war. They know what people are privy to, and what they are not. They will use every dirty tactic in the book.

Many believe that this dictatorship takeover of the internet goes beyond Google and Verizon, but strait to the top world control elite. An internet that can't be controlled/censored like cable and tv networks is a threat to their campaigns to keep us in the dark.
