People here still have food to eat unlike egypt

Seem to recall Pavlov's dogs as having food to eat too.

and the egyptian military.  they get $1.3 billion a year straight to them, no passing through the central government.  we apparently give guns to the arabs and dynamite to the jews (hat tip to tim hardin).

Tim Osman could tell you a lot about that, if he wasn't off scuba diving somewhere.

not sure how much kerry really knows or wants to know.  

it's amazing how his youthful exploits against the war machine told us zero about his doings when he got close to power.  like his "boss" a bit.

Sure, of course, but what about over in Egypt?

Well said...and in line with the quote of the day, also from TBP:

“Political campaigns today are all sideshows…A presidential candidate may be ‘drafted’ in response to ‘overwhelming popular demand,’ but it is well known that his name may be decided upon by half a dozen men sitting around a table in a hotel room…The conscious manipulation of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

Intalled, didn't install, instlled, uninstalled, unfreely installed, freely installed, never installed? So what's your point?  Coo coo Kachoo.

Negative!  What are you proposing, that we all go out and "protest" out in the open where we are easy pickings and cataloged by PRISM?  Some of us are waiting for the right moment, when we still have at least a semblance of control, such as when the door is kicked in.  Onward Sons of Liberty!

Not enough serfs have been pushed out of their comfort zones yet, and they are not preparing.

What is the comfort zone for a Frog in a pot?

I think its comfy all the way untill its deadly, it could take a long time.

You know what they say about a watched pot.

Cut off the SNAP cards, and the pot boils over. Nothing will happen so long as the sheeple are fed. Hence it will be the last thing TPTB will allow to fail to prevent another "let them eat cake" moment.

Who ... are you?

 

It has nothing to do with balls.

 

There's plenty of people down here with balls, I've got three of them my own self.

Its just, we have been paying attention.  Close attention.  We know what happens when you overthrow a leader.  What?  You get a new one, just like the old one.... It just ain't worth the trouble ....

What everyone outside the US does not understand is, how is that 7 out of 10 Americans fucking despise Obama but yet he was re-elected back to office?

Welcome to Democracy in America

NSA AND cia HAD controll of the computers that re-elected nobama....where are the patriots....Obama is not guarded by Americans since the election....

Pretty much.  Egyptians had barely taken off their protest clothes from the last time so they were already warmed up.  We're not warmed up yet and, of course, the 'free shit' keg is still flowin'.

greatbeard's picture

>> the 'free shit' keg is still flowin'.

You waiting for the free shit folks to do the dirty work?

Dr. Engali's picture

When the free shit stops flowing its not Washington they will be after. History has shown that the Golden Hordes will devastate everything in their sight.

NoDebt's picture

Sure, but the "free shit" keg is flowing to a lot more places than just the EBT card recipients.  Powerful corporations and individuals are drinking plenty off it, too.

nmewn's picture

Correct.

But shouldn't our dedication also be to force them to look in the mirror too? If everyones got their fangs locked onto this beast that steals from one to give to another the beast will not survive.

And our "best & brightest" will win again, walk away with their ill-gotten gains and leave the free shit army on the field right where they found them...to be abused again at leisure as they grovel & scrape before another master.

They're being used, when will they learn?

In any revolution there is one person with a vision. Someone to articulate to the masses the true enemy with simple clarity. The elites have used a highly successful campaign of obfuscation, pointing blame at the uninvolved, endless games of bread and circuses. Do you honestly think those who are scope locked on the mythical great OZ can have any perception of the man behind the curtain?

I am a Joe Average citizen with an above average but hardly genius IQ and it took me years of diligent digging just to begin to perceive the lie this country has become. Like any patient, ever -questioning scientist, I followed many paths to nowhere and had to reevaluate my premises. Those living hand to mouth don't have the time or inclination to do so. Their fate, unfortunately, will be decided by others. I will gladly lock my fangs in the beast but I can't do it alone. Until a sizable group wakes up we are powerless to effectuate any meaningful change.

DCFusor's picture

As another scientist...

I happen to think that a main purpose of things like PRISM is to prevent just what you describe - one person with vision can now be detected and eliminated before that "sizeable group" is awakened by them.

Stitch in time and all that.

Oops.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Absolutely agree DC. If a true leader emerges, this will be the beginning of the end. Of course this individual will be assassinated at the earliest opportunity. We may have many martyrs before this comes about. I fear Snowden may be the first. I pray every day for his safety and hope others come forward as well. I pray I can see liberty return to this country before I die.

You can have all the guns a bullets in the world, without the will to use them against tyranny you might as well bend over.

No, "the guns a bullets" will be needed to protect yourself from the bendovers after things awfawdown.

Egyptian Revolution: What You're Not Being told

http://youtu.be/qtImFA3hso8

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Sorry, that narrative is stale and misguided. Egyptians revolted in 2011 because their standard of living had collapsed under Mubarak, and Obama, as a muslim, was actively supporting the opposition, the Muslim Brotherhood.

Secular Egyptians got fed up fast with the Muslim Brotherhood, as their stupid Islamic fundamentalism made a terrible economy even worse. Hence, another revolt.

Sometimes it isn't "all about the oil", especially in 2013, when the US is producing more oil in the lower 48 than it has in 30 years. Give the Egyptians some credit for acting in their own best interests. The US Govt isn't always the grand international puppeteer it is made out to be.

RECISION's picture

Altho in fact Egypt IS all about the oil.

Heating/cooking oil, transportation/farming oil, etc, are all cost-of-living related oil-costs that are fracturing the Egyptian economy and society.  And have been for a long time.

They can't sustain the oil subsidies any longer.

"The Oil Drum" has carried stories on all of this for several years.  There are UN and World-Bank reports and warnings on it as well.

Refer also (for the same reasons) Jordan, Lebanon, and basically any non-oil-producing middle and far eastern country.  Particularly ones with low average-age populations.
