29. One thing we can always count on for sure...

Whatever we know about, there are things going on that we don't know about yet which are worse. We never find out all of the worst. It's always true, so figure that in. I always figure that whatever we know, it's twice that bad.

The only two reasons the government has to fear us the citizens is, if it is doing something that it knows we would not stand for -- whether it's in the past, present, or future, or all three. It's either that, or the domestic freaks really are ready to re-fight the Civil War. The reason I think those two are the likely possibilities is, if it was an outside problem we would be let in on it, to be part of the answer.

I tend to think the first possibility is the more likely, based on what we've already seen. I think it's only the tip of the iceberg, and some really dirty shit has been going on (against us) for a long time. To be a national threat and have all this secrecy not get out (any more than it has) it would have to be a both sides are equally guilty scenario, which fits too.

You don't arm for nothing. Even if it's a trumped up excuse, eventually, a reason for it has to be put on the table, if only to explain the expense and the hardware showing up in places, as in the video. I think there is a reason, and it's something we really would finally get the pitchforks out for (for instance if 9/11 was MIHOP). I think they know it's going to inevitably leak out soon, and that is why they're so upset about Snowden. Whatever he has, it must contain a tip off to it.

That's what I think, just fwiw. Time will tell.


ETA: As to whether what's said in the video is true, we can look around at reports of what's happening to police forces all over and know that it's true ourselves. It doesn't rely on this person's statement, it's already evident. Look on any page of GD.
