The point of no return ANOTHER MUST READ!
THE POINT OF NO RETURN
Dictators do not appear overnight. They must gradually assume more and more power over time so that the population does not realize what is going on, or does not feel it is worthwhile to object.

go on reading in this article from "What really happened"

2. Time to Accept or Reject the Madness of Bush/neocons agenda.
Only a short while ago we were of "Fading Hopes" only to be suprised as the Nation experiences a Shift to it Senses, the Common Kine.

Bad Force leads to Bad Results.

Bush is "All Bad" posing as "Good as it Gets"

6. Jeez, if you look at the top corners of the Eagle stamp
I swear you can make out the hidden suggestion of two swastikas on the wings.

I gotta get off the Net for awhile.

9. Really? You don't see it?
Edited on Sat May-15-04 06:59 PM by TheBlob
I thought it was obvious.

Just to prove my point, here:

I basically just added two lines to each one.

10. Yes but.............
I'm too skeptical to think, it's NOT a coincident, maybe because I'm German and in our country it's not allowed by law to show the swastika.
Therefore I barely can belief, that it was done by purpose......I might be wrong

8. The Boiled Frog!
"They say that if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water,
it will leap out right away to escape the danger.
But, if you put a frog in a kettle that is filled with water that is cool and pleasant,
and then you gradually heat the kettle until it starts boiling,
the frog will not become aware of the threat until it is too late.
The frog's survival instincts are geared towards detecting sudden changes.

This is a story that is used to illustrate how people might get themselves into terrible trouble.
This parable is often used to illustrate how humans have to be careful to watch slowly changing trends in the environment, not just the sudden changes. Its a warning to keep us paying attention not just to obvious threats but to more slowly developing ones.

An example:
Let's say that every year, the local well had an inch less of water in it. A person might realize there's a problem if there's suddenly NO water, but a slowly dropping level might not be an obvious crisis until it's too late!"

11. the simliarities
Are stunning, and should be enough to allow the American people to get Bush out of office in 2004. Barring another "convienent" public relations boost, I can't see him winning with things in the current situation that they are. However, if he does, the future of this nation could be in a dark, dark place. Bush has publically come out in support of taking away marraige rights for certain groups, and now refuses to disipline a cabinet member who allowed POW torture to get out of control.

It appears that Bush is starting to share a Nazi mindset in the fact that he and his adminstration believe that they don't have to adhere to current moral codes, and can make thier own up. The violations on privacy in the name of the "war on terror" are disturbing and in many ways, relate to the powers of the "Enabling Act" of Germany, except the PATRIOT act was not passed by the people. We need to stop Bush at all costs.
