Please name all the pols you know of that sincerely DO care about Americans, and tell me what theyve done for us. And i mean in the last,oh, 20 - 30 years or so. (no fair mentioning Abraham Lincoln or anybody that far back).

I'll name names. Here are just a few:
GW Bush, Dick Cheney, Alan Keyes, J.C. Watts...these are all politicians who currently serve or who have served recently. I know one politician who goes to my church whom I know well, and I can swear to you that he cares about people. There are many other politicians, both Republican and Democrat who care about the American people. To make a blanket statement that no politician in the last 20 or 30 years cares about the American people is not just inaccurate, but insulting.

You mean you didn't see Oliver Stone in the footage on the ground just as the planes hit the towers? Looked suspicious to me, like he was directing the whole thing...hrm...

I dunno.
it's not inconveniencing though. it's changing lifestyles. homogenizing cultures and resisting difference.
that which is proposed might be attractive but it's application is almost sure to be ugly.

No Brother Kobe.
I think you misinterpreted me.
We have been walking on egg-shells under the guise of racial sensitivity,while putting the nation's security at risk.
Skinheads need to be watched even MORE for the record.

BUSH?????????? ROFLMFAO!!!!!!!!! Cheney??? UHHHHHHHHHHHH dont think so. So tell me, how have those 2 improved YOUR life????
Ok, possibly the one that goes to your church. What does he do for the people? Does he volunteer at soup kitchens, walk the streets and get needy people the help they need? Get people jobs, fight for peoples rights, what??
I know my statement is insulting. Thats what its intended to do. I dont mind insulting criminals, which most pols are, in one way or another.
So you named a few. So that still means, what, 99% of pols dont do shit for anyone other than themselves, and their friends.
99% is close enough for me to make a broad statement like that.

But since you have brought it up, I chat with him privately as well, and I trust his loyalty to be sincere. An "America Appreciation Thread" is a brave step in a forum such as this, and Arun V is the one who posted it.

I do agree with a lot of the things you say, Miss MacPhisto; but keep in mind that MANY Americans from all sectors of the political spectrum have come together in their reaction to 9-11; it doesn't mean they are hypocrites or anything. Instead, it means that despite our political differences (and I have several with Arun V), we DO have a bond as Americans which transcends political parties, ideologies and such.

~U2Alabama
And I agree wholeheartedly with your last statement.
But as far as Arun is concerned, I do believe that it is perfectly fine for me to introduce statements he made to me prior to Sept 11th.
I couldnt believe it when i talked to him and he actually supported military action torwards Osama and Co. I was stunned. And I dunno about his sincerity at all: "I say a lot of things".
And i dont find an America Appreciation thread to be "brave" post Sept 11th - Everyone is babbling about how much they love it here now. Thats...nice, but...

Anyway, as I said, if you dont care about the people in this country, then you do not love this country.

Of course its vague!!!!!!!!!! What do you think, i went and videotaped the whole show, or took notes?! I'm going on memory, and with all the things going on at that time, and with all the time that has passed, i dont even remember all the details, I watched the segment, rolled my eyes, and went on with business.


If you are in counter terrorism, its YOUR JOB to be one step ahead of terrorists. You need to think like a terrorist, in order to see where weaknesses in our security are, and prevent such attacks.
Hell, if i got a bunch of friends togethr, i'm quite sure we could dream up some ingenious terrorist plot just on what limited knowledge of such things we have. If we could do that, then why is it so difficult for those who are actually educated on such matters to remain one step ahead of terrorists, and do their job protecting an entire country?
It could have been prevented, but it wasnt. I cant believe this just slipped by them. No way..

But you see, you can't even say that!
How in the world do you know how many politicians do or don't care about people? That's totally ridiculous. I can't even believe you said it.

She doesn't know that; she may claim to, but, HELL, I could claim the opposite for that matter. I could "claim" George Wallace was a "good" person, simply because he was a DEMOCRAT. But that doesn't mean it would be TRUE.

Its easy really. When you encounter a certain type of person, and evry person of that type that you meet, read, or hear about is a certain way, than you can pretty much assume that most of them are that way.
Thus, if the vast majority of pols are worthless I'll just go right ahead and put the figure at 99%.

Oh, and 80s, you didnt answer my question. How has the guy who goes to your church changed lives. how does he help people on a regular basis?
If you went up to people who formerly lived a hellish life, and/or lived in poverty, in the bad part of town, etc etc, and asked them who had made a positive difference in their lives, would they really name some people in government?!?! Would they really name Bush, Cheney, the dude from your church, etc??

I stopped reading this around the time people started attacking each other as they often do in this place but Koby I've got to say THANK YOU!!! I love conspiracies, true or not, I think it is fascinating how stories can be made out of a few facts or comments. This conspiracy theory is indeed an interesting one!

Nice to see you've got some prejudice working with that ignorance of yours.

Sorry Miss Mac, but all you did here was make generalizations, accusations, and offer far fetched theories without offering one shred of evidence to support anything you say. Instead, all we hear is either "I can't remember" or "I don't have the time" Next time don't bring a knife to a gun fight, K?

Sorry, but youre the one who is a pathetic ignoramus.
I never said i had all the details, and its true i cant remember, and its also true that i dont have the time.
All I'm stating is that i am almost certain that the US government as at least partly responsible for what happened, and that the vast majority of pols are nothing but twisted sick ppl. Thats all i came here to say, not to provide evryone with all the gorey details. You can just get off your ass and go find out the truth yourself.
Maybe someday i'll have the money and the means to go out there, compile a database of pols, do some research, and find out who's naughty and whos nice. Or perhaps someone else can prove me wrong.If it turns out that indeed the majority are innocent and pure as the driven snow, then fine. I'll happily change my opinion.
Until then, i'm sticking to my guns. Not my knives...
