Militants Debate Al Qaeda's Future Amid Arab Turmoil
What would we do without a BoogeyMan?
We'd like to find out, but you won't go away.
Hmmm, let's see. OK first it was the eastern indian. Then the southern confederate. Opps, don't forget the first go round with the mexicans. Then the plains indians, the Spanish and then those aweful huns. Next up a slight forray with the domestic commies eg socialist,anarchists but then came the Nazis and Japs and then back to the commies after we'd been friends. Now it's the evil muslim.
With all that money invested in the industry of war and the need to keep those production lines going, I've no doubt, in fact I'm certain we'll cook up.....I mean hoodwink.......I mean trick.....false flag.....I mean, of course there's some evil out there and I have faith my gov't will find them and point them out to me so I can hate them with all my heart, wave the flag and pray to the national god of gov't!
See, we have nothing to worry about.
without a boogeyman, the right wing patrons wouldnt have anything left to fear in their everyday lives. Good thing Glenn Beck is serving up a good dose of socialism and communism mixed in with a little van jones and unions for the upcoming REVOLUTION! LOL
Better buy his food packs! Only 9999.00!!!!
I can't help but wonder if the Black Panthers had a similar quandry when MLK Jr.'s peaceful protests proved more effective. Or at least as impressive when after Apartheid fell and Nelson Mandela held that country together through a peaceful reconciliation process.
You can make fun of food storage, but after living in Utah twice, it's big business there. It's a Mormon thing. If there's ever some sort of cataclysmic event, I'm seeking out a Mormon because he'll have a year's worth of food squirreled away. If they are good people, could they harshly turn me away??
Very good point bbsam. Most people forget that Ghandi brought down the great British Lion in India not by force of arms but by force of non-compliance. Howard Zinn in his book on history documents a western Mass. town ended British control of their are in the days of the revolution not by battle on their own Lexington Green but rather by a citizen movement who marched on the British garrison not with arms but to inform them that henceforth, the mass of citizens would just refuse to comply and cooperate. The British departed the area without a shot fired.
Look at Egypt and how Mubarak was taken down. Violence for the most part only came when loyalist (would that be conservative?) entered the fray to protect the status quo. Same might be said in Libya to some degree and thus also across the other areas of the Middle East where unrest with western puppet govt's grows.
A year of so ago I heard a former US Army Captain Paul Chappell who graduated West Point, served in Iraq talk about "Will War Ever End" and he discussed peace literally as a weapon and some of his talk center on Ghandi. Takes over an hour to watch but it is very thought provoking.
HOLY CRAP! Now I know why I never watch that show, I can't afford it!
If Beck is really worried about a post scarcity world, why not tell his viewers about things in the open source world like the folks at OpenFarmTech . If you can get past the natural kneejerk reaction to think road warrior, what these farmers, engineers, inventers and supporters are doing is absolutely amazing and it's all open source and free. Oh, that's why he not doing it, there's no money in it. Can't have freedom and liberty unless you make lots of money off of it!
Back at ya!
It isn't Beck worrying about the world....it's the Mormon Church. They espouse the 1 year food storage thing. He's a Mormon.
Or his patriotic crap merchandise, which is made in China by young girls working 7 days a week for peanuts. Glenn Beck is a certifiable crazy, and ever since he converted to the Mor_on Church, he's gotten worse. It's like listening to a psychotic televangelist pumping his idiot audience for more $$$ by appealing to their most basic fears. That's reprehensible, but then again, so is Beck. If there is a God, it's time for a little chat with Mr Beck.
Do what I do.....turn to another channel when he's on. You are never forced to watch anyone....unless your captor duct tapes you to the chair and won't flip the channel.......If that was the case, I'd make you watch OWN (Oprah Winfry Network) 24/7
If there's a cataclysm,all the Republicans will just take their guns and kill the Mormons.
killing is big in all of your ideas,,,,,,,(string 'em up).
I speak metaphorically about stringing-up Walker. Republicans/Libertarians are the ones that take matters into their own hands most of the time. Small penis= desire for big guns, and small brain=desire to be GOP. It's as simple as that. See, I've already done all the hard work for you.
Don't you have your supplies yet ?
I could give you some of this excellent gov't cheese that I found.
So now, I've got a small penis ?? :-(
Que the duck!
Government cheese was Reagan's baby.
Do you drive a Jaguar XKE and have a large gun collection? I'm guessing pistols or rifles with long barrels could compensate for certain deficiencies.
lets hope there bus falls off the side of a mountain, nobody will miss them.
