    Are you a conspiracy theorist?

    I don't think this stuff is funny enough for comic books; although Looney Tunes sounds about right

    Of course he isn't! His theory is based on verifiable data obtained from the Elders themselves! Geez, you need to check yer facts Disko! ;-)

    Who are you calling an idiot? You are the one taking the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" seriously. That's beyond revolting, beyond stupid, and into paranoid schizophrenic territory.

    Don't leave before explaining it to me! I have 4 Jewish people staking out my house and I'm frightened. They're armed with Torahs and I think they're loaded too! I need help here man! And you're deserting me.
  • HunterD Disko P... 2009/05/24 22:03:59
    Actually he should, that comic he posted shows how the whole "Elders of Zion" thing is a LIE.

    Oh , I guess that I'm just not tuned into such abject stupidity and bigotry. Thanks for the interpretation.

    They were under fire for only representing one certain religion, or "chosen ones" - so they brought in Hollywood to help.

    If there's any truth to your screen name, America has worse problems than this recession...
  • No nightow... 2009/05/22 20:40:41 (edited)
    My screen name is a quote from Obama and I'm far from typical, lol. With regards to this Country having bigger problems than the recession phase, you nailed that, but as for me being one of them. Hmm, well - How about "Not even close". I seek the truth and through doing so am just simply amazed at how blind most Americans are to it. If what I said, or my screen name is of such concern, then get mad and do something about it!! Oh wait, that's silly right? Getting mad and doing something about it isn't what sheeple do. I take that back because you have been known to vote for the best singer on American Idol with ferocious intent and satisfaction!. >:D amazed blind americans screen concern mad wait silly mad sheeple

    "Oh wait, that's silly right? Getting mad and doing something about it isn't what sheeple do. I take that back because you have been known to vote for the best singer on American Idol with ferocious intent and satisfaction!. >:D "

    LOL. You're absolutely right. Not that it matters one way or the other, (nothing "wrong" with it) but just as a point of information, I've never cast a single ballot for any "American Idol" candidate.

    I have, however, voted in every single election, no matter how "small" since I was first eligible to vote...

    I've also sat on election boards, registered voters, served as a precinct committeeperson, delegate to my state party convention, and have run a couple of campaigns -- but not for American Idols.

    I've encountered far better things to "get mad" about than this, your screenname, and yeah, when I have, I've tried, more often than not, to do something about it, if I could.

    Your cynical photo, with its inherently implied prejudice, is an interesting one. Not sure if it applies to me or not: I've been in plenty of marches and protests, but I confess I do think American is Beautiful.

    Oh, and I like diet coke, too. applies ive plenty marches protests confess american beautiful diet coke

    So you've fallen victim to the political show. I can't fault you for that. As my my screen name - as I stated, it's straight out of Obama's mouth and as for my photo - it's merely a plight to awaken the sleeping masses. America is beautiful if you're out in nature, but that's about it. As for the people of this Country - There are way to many clueless to the real dangers we face and that is much more dangerous than the actual slow and quiet war being waged against us all at this very moment. It's not just the US, it's the world...

    "So you've fallen victim to the political show."

    No, I'm not a victim. :)

    "America is beautiful if you're out in nature, but that's about it."

    I don't agree. There's a lot "beautiful" about America which resides in urban and rural areas alike, within her people.

    I agree we face some real challenges, both domestic and global. I choose to believe we're up to the fight. :)

    But... he's talking about a specific KIND of "white person" of a specific generation. You're not denying, are you, that anglo women Obama's grandmother's age, women of her era, were taught that black men were dangerous, are you? :) He also says women of the next generation are "less like that."

    Perhaps his phrasing was unfortunate, but you're not arguing his point, are you? Really? C'mon... ;)
