Don't be a Sucker
Produced in 1947 by the US War Department. This film explores exactly what is happening here in America. Funny and sad that the insight we had back in 1947 can not be utilized today. America is becoming exactly what America loathed and fought against over 60 years ago.

This film was brought to DU's attention in a recent 'highly recommended'thread. Some people thought it was worthy of a thread of it's own. No one has started one so far as I can tell, so.... It is very much worth 16 minutes of your time.

Hope you will all take a few moments to watch:

1. Hey, at least in 1947 they were 'honest enough' to call it the "War Dept."
instead of the euphemism "Dept. of Defense".

They called a 'spade' a spade' back then..... :shrug:

4. Exactly. And let's mention, 'no child, "Left Behind" '
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 01:14 AM by Mind_your_head
which is one of those rapture "code words"....there was a "Left Behind" series of books (and movie?), IIRC??? (which left every child "behind").....

Thanks for the K & R :-)

7. Thanks for pointing that out "Left Behind".
They are slick.

I thought it was "code words" for.. "No Millionaire Left Behind". :)

I've heard about that series but I've never read any of it or watched the movie.

17. Geez!!! *sigh* ....No, HUGH *sigh*......
I found this interesting:

AntiChrist's Global Community Peacekeepers

as in, "turn over all your right's to us and will keep you "peaceful" and "safe"? But that would be a lil trick of the antichrist do get one to B E L I E V E {hands around throut}, wouldn't it?

Sheesh.

18. In the game the U.N is the
AntiChrist's Global Peacekeepers. The game ranks right up there with "Left behind".. I believe it's just an attempt to demonize the U.N. in the eyes of kids.

Clearly the NeoCons have long term goals. One or two elections will not stop it.
