Welcome to the bastion of Cootness.
My personal regime inside my bunker located in the middle of my compound that can be so easily invaded by jack-booted thugs either purposefully or accidentally.
For many years I have wandered the Web looking at many types of Web sites.
The message boards covering many topics have been interesting since they allow a shanty-bound bloke to determine what other folks think about the topic(s) a message board thread relates to.
Do I have to cover an aspect of message boards in depth to assuage the sadly illogical, irrational and well-brainwashed masses who will bleat their objections within areas I would expect sane, logical, rational and clear-thinking folks to assume from the get-go?
Though it is “risky” I am assuming that the typical Disgruntled Old Coot Reader ™ is not the typical nearly brain-dead idiotic citizen-sheep infesting a country in the midst of class war that the ruling-class masters are winning.
Thus I will not devote multiple paragraphs covering the many pros and cons regarding message boards and the information, data, opinions ot whatever garnered from reading the boards.
Message boards can be sources of knowledge, humor or many other areas of human interest.
The above pic was obtained after following a message board link. I obtained a giggle and a near guffaw from the thing.
Social-related and current event topics are very common at many message boards.
Maybe you Web wanderers remember when the latest of a long line of main figurehead politician lackeys of the ruling elite-class masters mispronounced the “Corps” in “Marine Corps.”
The pic below will remind us of that SNAFU for awhile.
The ongoing overseas fighting (can it be a war if Congress never declared war?) is a common topic on various message boards but I have noticed a decline of comments about the overseas fighting.
The pic below might be a kick in the head to the masses of brainwashed citizen-sheep who blindly follow the ruling masters and allow the commoner class to bleed and die in the ruling master’s wars.
Yes… I am stating my subjective opinion but I am a student of history with decades of non-fiction reading backing my opinions.
Not that voluminous reading and life experiences makes me right but compared to the majority of message board posts I have read I believe my babbling and spewing has at least some rational and logical thinking involved.
Most, but not all, message board posts I have read are woefully lacking any knowledge base behind the written utterances.
Instead, as I shall show shortly, I read knee-jerk implanted rhetoric often devoid of any apparent acquired knowledge about the subject at hand.
I believe that the speaking methods used by scum, vile, putrid politicians verifies my belief.
Politicians and candidates for political office constantly spew meaningless platitudes full of emotion-laden words and terms.
The campaigning vermin want to reach out and influence the maximum number of voters possible.
So… who IS the majority?
Ignorant, emotion-laden, illogical and ill-educated bleating citizen-sheep!!!
The death knell for a political candidate is to speak meaningfully and logically and actually refer to real issues confronting We, the People.
The human herd hates thinking!!! The masses want their emotions tickled and vote accordingly.
No, not all USA citizens think, act and behave akin to sheep but the majority does.
Oh, the sad pic that makes several statement. How you interpret the pic is up to you. I do not intend any disrespect to the severely injured Marine.
Twice I was homeless after returning from SE Asia in the 1970s but I was lucky to have a car to sleep in. Abject homelessness with no safe place to sleep is tough. Real tough.
Even though I was a law-abiding, moral citizen just down on his luck (both homeless events were during recessions that hit California particularly hard) I still had to avoid/evade local law enforcement that viewed folks such as I as a threat to society.
Or, maybe, I and others akin to me made them feel guilty.
Paid much better than us working-poor folks and with benefits that were never offered to us yet it was We, the People’s taxes that paid their wages, excellent benefits and generous retirements.
Yes, cops are needed but so are the folks growing and harvesting our food and I did that work off and on. No respect for the folks doing such important work.
Well… always remember… the USA is in the midst of a class war that became more intense around 1972 and the lower classes have been severely harmed and conditions continue to worsen.
The elites take care of their own class and the minions, cohorts and lackeys that live alongside them or serve them, etc.
The lackeys that serve their masters well know that rewards await them after they leave their political office, bureaucracy position or wherever they can serve their masters.
The rewards are legal with no promises made.
Those involved know how the “game” is played.
Note how wealthy ex-presidents and others become after leaving office.
Even the families of lackeys are rewarded.
Congress keeps increasing the number of non-citizen workers corporations are allowed to bring into the USA.
Statutes dictate that the imported worker can only work for the firm that brought them in.
Not a lot different from slave labor and a great way for corporations to not have to contend with the economic law of supply/demand.
Another topic hitting the message boards not long ago was about the federal bureaucracy warning their jack-booted thugs across the land about the possible dangers of military veterans returning from overseas duties.
Stated in a more factual manner the warnings should have told of the possible threat to the status quo that ensures the majority of the USA’s wealth is transferred ever-upwards into the greedy hands of the ruling-class masters… the threat of an ever-growing number of military veterans and other USA citizens who are damn tired of the USA elites and their minions, cohorts and lackeys that are spitting upon us.
I am a military veteran who would shout with joy if the USA military forces rose up and began fighting the real enemy… that elite class and the many institutions, bureaucracies and various systems created and used to allow that elite class to exist and thrive
A HUGE scam by a very wealthy and powerful few.
A scam common among all types of hierarchies and throughout human existence.
Maybe the masters and their buddies and servants should beware the veterans.
After shedding some of the indoctrination all of us non-ruling-class are immersed in for life I grew to despise the federal government (most but not every part of it).
My time overseas in the military started the process of questioning that which was shoved into my mind by the most effective propaganda systems ever created.
Then decades of life experience and reading and various types of self-education led to my condoning the idea of a military coup to tear down a perverted unrepairable federal government, bureaucracies and various systems; educational, political, economic and more and start anew.
Yes, I am a returned military veteran with that belief.
I wonder how many recent veterans are similar or the same as me with more becoming that way over time as the realization grows that We, the People, are the recipients of a horrible SCAM!!!
Wow!!!! A politician who is not supporting the masters.
That utterance alone is not enough to keep the masters from rewarding him later.
Part of the scam is to create a facade to hoodwink the masses that the current system actually works, that the commoners via their representatives actually have some real influence upon and within the federal government.
I have been sidetracked again.
Back to the main topic; brainwashed buffoons bleating their implanted knee-jerk rhetoric on Web message boards.
Comments that are written in a manner to express that the comment is an opinion are not included. Those message-types are a minority. Most are written in a manner that makes the writer appear to be declaring the TRUTH that all should be able to observe and that any disagreement (as seen in responses to comments made about their message) indicates the dissenter is an idiot or worse.
The writings below not surrounded by quotation marks are me butting in and commenting.
Here are some examples:
“…The liberal media…”
“Occupy is the Obama re-election strategy…”
“…tie it to the TEA PArty”
“Liberals are anti-guns… That was an ignorant post”
“Liberals are only for taking guns away”
“Liberals take a policy stance to further their agenda”
Me again. A multitude of liberal/conservative shouting. Both are subjective terms and useless in an educated rational discussion. Appealing to emotions. Effective with the masses of idiotic near brain-dead citizen-sheep.
“Liberals hate independent people”
“You are a dimwit.”
“typical of a braindead leftist”
Me time: Divide and conquer, an ancient warfare tactic. Well, the USA is in a class war and the masses are divided in MANY ways. Politics, religion, socio-economic class, race, ethnicity, and other ways to divide We, the People.
‘Diversity is our strength’ is, to me, a politically correct mantra full of subjective emotionality and meaningless in many ways. But, disagree with that meaningless phrase and be prepared to be bombarded with spite.
Divide the masses and ensure the desired status quo so beneficial to the few is maintained.
Regarding class war:
“There’s class warfare, all right, Mr. (Warren) Buffett said, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning”
“While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks,” Buffett wrote in a Sunday New York Times Op-ed.
“There has been class warfare going on,” Buffett, 81, said in a Sept. 30 interview with Charlie Rose on PBS. It’s just that my class is winning. And my class isn’t just winning, I mean we’re killing them.”
“My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress.” – Billionaire Warren Buffett, in a New York Times op-ed on Aug. 15.
“One reason companies are so profitable is that they’re paying employees less than they ever have as a share of GDP. And that, in turn, is one reason the economy is so weak: Those “wages” are other companies’ revenue.
In short, our current system and philosophy is creating a country of a few million overlords and 300+ million serfs.” Blodget
Me again: I started believing that the USA was in the midst of class warfare back in the mid-1980s, long before I read the above similar beliefs to mine.
I was extremely pleased when a financier of Warren Buffet’s level agreed with my present belief.
I found it interesting how little attention the mass media gave to the above statements.
Usually the mass media grabs onto Buffet’s words and airs them nationally.
And the ruling-elite master class and their brethren smile knowing that conditions within the USA and the ongoing brainwashing ensures their status as the power brokers and wealth possessors.
And I remain in my personal regime in the bunker in my compound hoping that despite the risks that a full-scale military coups destroys the old and make a solemn effort to rebuild a country/society better than what was present when the coup commenced.
It is sad but I am convinced that voting is a fool’s game; especially futile at the federal government level.
