Hey, I'd LIKE to believe my govt. & media, but you see, I can't.
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 03:55 PM by Philosoraptor
I don't know what's going on any more than anyone else does, but I do know that if we go by the republican rules, getting caught in one lie makes every thing you say unbelievable.

Our government has been caught lying to us lately on several occassions on some very grave matters, yet, many still believe almost everything they see on the bush media.

I'd really LOVE to believe today's terror plot biz, but you see, I cannot.

Not after six fucking years of lies.

1. I don't doubt you're sincere on this.
But is it really necessary to start a half dozen threads on the same topic?

3. I wish someone of stature would bring this up. Take a risk for usand do it
it's needs to be out there as to what's going on, even at the now smaller and smaller likelihood that these Bush people are on the level, there might be a political risk for some big name, but thetimes call for it.

6. KO did a great show not too long ago
about the terra alert and political "coincidences". When this turns out to be nothing then I would hope he does it again.

4. Well...the problem is that the Brits are doing this...
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 04:04 PM by jerry611
I know the we and the Brits have been in bed together for the past 150 years. But don't really think Tony Blair is going to pull any tricks to help Bush who can't even run for president. There is very little political gain from doing this now.

Now the Republicans may use this as an election year issue, in fact I am possitive that they will. But I don't really think it changes anything.

11. ok
i look at this from a practical angle as much as anything

it is nigh impossible , practically speaking , to have such an involved (lots of LEO;'s involved) and time consuming investigation be a scam

12. I reserve the right to say I might be totally wrong.
And I offer no absolutes, and I don't mind being called a paranoid theorist, because its true.
