Just woke up a Sheep!

Well, a couple nights ago I had a friend come over. He asked me what I have been up to and I took the opportunity to show him the video's I had been making particularly on the FED. He then asked why do I even care? He told me nothing is going to change and that things will even out eventually. Well I told him that I care because This could potentially get really bad and affect Me, You, and our future generations. He said we'll be able to get through it "we are America the greatest country on the planet." Well I asked if i could show him some stuff on the computer, he said "sure." I started with the FEMA camps and Coffins. He was very resistant and found other explanations for them. He couldn't believe anyone could be that sinicle. So i went straight to the proof. 9/11. I had him at WTC7 and Larry silverstein saying to pull the building. I then went through the vast array of unanswered highly questionable coincidences of that day. I wanted him to realze that our government is not our caretaker and really never does anything in our best interest. I then talked about the economy and Ron Paul and the whole C4L. He ended staying on my couch because he was to in shock to drive home. I called him today and he told me that his shock turned to fear and now is Anger. He said he wasn't a sheep, that he was a pig, sheep is to nice an animal. He said the masses are pigs because not only are they ignorant but chop a pig up and feed it to their own kind and they won't know the difference. Hopefully I could get him to turn that Anger into Peaceful Activism,. Just thought i'd share.

I may have converted the

I may have converted the dishwasher repair guy a few days ago. While he fixed the washer we talked about real estate which led to the economy and by the time he left he had a little list of eye opening videos to check out in his spare time. He wanted to know what to do to get the country back on track and was looking for answers.

I've been working on a major airline pilot

... he is an opinionated conservative, former Air Force jet fighter-pilot, and mechanical engineer. First off he thinks, Ron Paul is a kook and he is a McCain supporter. I've hit him with about all of the stuff we post here. I'm no expert like him, but he believes that jet fuel can melt steel as in 9/11 contrary to all I have read. Don't get me wrong, this guy is not a dummy, he is a very sharp person, but why he is this way when it comes to no brainers escapes me (stubborn) ? I started telling him about Obama's citizenship issues and before I could finish, he exclaimed, "What is he, a plant?" I said, "No, a usurper!" That got the wheels turning a little bit in his head, but he feels it is a done deal, nothing is going to change.

My point is, here is an intelligent guy, that has tons of training, top physical shape, trusted to Captain a jumbo jet, and a Hard-Right Conservative that dismisses everything you tell him as a conspiracy or kooks.

Maybe it is fluoride ? He did tell me in so many words that he rather have healthy teeth than my kooky 40 more points IQ.

Great work!!!! I thank you

Great work!!!! I thank you for converting another sheep...

Soilent Green.. good

Soilent Green.. good analogy..That is what our gov't is trying to do to all of us..WE the People. Feed us to each other..Divide & conquer..
Healthcare. Black & white..Liberal Conservative .. When will the liberals wake up, also ?? All of us , "WE the People" must come together & get back what they stole from us ..The melting pot..
Freedom breeds lives of contentment, Slavery breeds division & suffering.
naughty, naught

I stay away from the 9/11 debate..

But I wake people up almost daily.

To be honest, my friends tell me I scare them. They do call their rep's when I share the news. Being told Im scary doesnt bode well with me. My preference would be one of activism. Keep shaking the sheep... they will wake.

I hope that his anger will be channeled into a good cause.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

The Damnest Finest Ruins

Put me somewhere west of East Street where there's nothin' left but dust,
Where the lads are all a hustlin' and where everything's gone bust,
Where the buildin's that are standin' sort of blink and blindly stare
At the damndest finest ruins ever gazed on anywhere.

Bully ruins - bricks and wall - through the night I've heard you call
Sort of sorry for each other cause you had to burn and fall.
From the Ferries to Van Ness you're a God-forsaken mess,
But the damndest finest ruins - nothin' more or nothin' less.

The strangers who come rubberin' and a huntin' souvenirs,
The fools they try to tell us it will take a million years
Before we can get started, so why don't we come and live
And build our homes and factories upon land they've got to give.

"Got to give"! why, on my soul, I would rather bore a hole
And live right in the ashes than even move to Oakland's mole,
If they'd all give me my pick of their buildin's proud and slick
In the damndest finest ruins still I'd rather be a brick!

The Damnest Finest Ruins is a poem writen about The San Francisco earthquak 1906. San Francisco, "The Jewel of the Pacific", was the richest city in the world. The population doubled every day as people from around the world came to find gold. The government, as usual was corrupt, the mayor and council were under indictment and were to be arrested in the morning the quake hit... instead, the mayor, a former music conductor who was into lining his pockets, knew NOTHING about how to run a city, turned the city over to General Gibson, a "napolean" of sorts who decided the way to clean up SF was to shoot people and bomb buildings to dust... It's a hell of a tragic story, how the finest city was hit by a quake, and how human stupidity, greed, power lusting, wind up buring and bombing the city to dust and have the navy wash it into the Pacific... all in three days.

I look at SF today, 100 years later, and several earthquakes since, and I think about the stupidity, greed and power lusting by comparison on a national and global scale, and I feel peace, because we have rebuilt SF. We have come a long way. The SF was one of the greatest tragedys of US histroy, and yet, no one even thinks much about it today.

Sometimes I think about when after 911 everyone flew an American flag because they wanted to. I hope to feel and see that again... not the 911... but that feeling of unity for our country.

So what's this got to do with your post... The Damnest Finest Ruins is the film I use to wake people up, because people get the message, YES WE CAN rebuild... and I want to surround myself with people who have a CAN DO attitude. You see, when SHTF, that means we all get some S on us, and I don't have to point out "THE S".. people have their own, and I don't need or want to get into the S, because I have my own, of course.

When you watch "The Damnest Finest Runs", there is not a moment of laughter. There is NOTHING funny, except maybe the moving film of people over a hundred years ago, the horse and buggies, cars, no traffic lights, the architecture, and how the people dresses, the building.. all very amusing, and as a Californian, oh boy do I miss "Old CA", The story is grossly tragic, and yet the message is: WE CAN rebuild, despite corrupt government, greedy corrupt corporations, ignorance in command, power driven mass murders and illeagal invasion and occupation of troops, everything from the ground breaking wide open and swallowing up mountains to entire cities being burned and bombed out by our own government.. WE CAN rebuild. I think this is a very imporatnt message to people.

It appears YouTube no longer has a vid on the doc.

We started educating my new neighbor

a couple nights ago. He's very eager to learn more but I'm a little wary of sending him off the deep end too quickly. What's some good beginner material? i was thinking Freedom to Fascism. Any suggestions?

F to F sounds good...

I realize that a lot of people are indoctrinated with the idea that the Fed. Government acts in our best interest. So, the first step is to reveal that the people at the top, the high level government actually don't care about you, me, or anyone but their kind. I let them know that they see us(the common man) as mere peasants and believe they are above us. That's the crucial bridge to cross because a lot do not believe someone or group could be so sinister. If they understand that then everything is a lot easier to explain.

You're right

That is the first step. The thing is, he's a very hardworking guy, owns his own landscaping business and has no free time, he is current events clueless, therefore has no opinions about anything, and he freely admits it. I guess it's a better place to start, with a clean slate, than someone who is convinced everything is just great the way it is.

Some you have to work on for years

to get them to wake up, if ever.

Others, it only takes an hour of Freedom to Fascism.

I have distant family on the other end

.... of Illinois from me. These people are typical good hard working loyal Americans - Mom, Apple Pie, and the Flag, President too (although I don't know about this one ;)

What little they get to see of their Big City cousin, I get the feeling they are somewhat skeptical of what I am telling them. I thought I had them going recently, but my emails with blatant government treasonous mischief have gone un-answered like I have the plague ? I find people will listen to you, but to get them on board and participate is another story. Nobody (a lot) to my knowledge that I have ever talked to have become even mildly an activist, at best just listeners. I have pissed off friends with stuff fellow DP'ers would consider no brainers. I have friends and family from Hawaii to Florida that I have emailed information, what little responses I get are mostly negative. Maybe they think I'm crazy like the rest of you hahahaha !

I had a similar experience

I had a similar experience with an old friend whose father is a pastor. After his awakening he took the information, sat down with his father and showed him what he had learned. Now his father is awake and refused to vote for McCain, instead he voted for Baldwin as a protest vote and is speaking to his congregation in a manner of liberty, reminding them of what this nation once was and how greed and corruption threatens the fabric of our once great country.

On the down side I was having a conversation with a WWII vet yesterday who had obviously drank the propaganda kool-aid in mass quantities. He claimed to be an America first supporter, and supported G.W. Bush to the fullest. I mentioned Ron Paul, and his response was “that crazy guy that wants drugs legalized, I am not for legalizing drugs”! I explained to him that Ron Paul said that it is the states responsibility, and that the 46 billion dollar drug war had failed miserably, and asked if we should not spend a portion of that for rehabilitation? His comment really let me know that there was no waking him up as he stated “The best way to end the drug problem in this country is the same way China did, arrest, and execute the users”. I immediately told him that supporting Communist Chinese policy did not sound very American, and that neo conservative think was a thing of the past with the failed Bush administration. Further in the conversation we were discussing the contra affair when he stated that “Oliver North is a great American hero”, I then pointed him to the hearing videos and asked how American it was to violate his oath to the constitution under no control of the House or Senate? When I left I had listed enough links on his PC that he could start reading some fact, this is a tough sale but if I get any positive feedback I will certainly post about it here.

Knowledge is power!

My karma ran over your dogma~

One at a time:

I have been getting people interested by using the old gold standard thingy.
When someone says something about prices going up, I simply explain how you can still buy an nice expensive suit with an oz. of gold just like you could before we got off of the gold standard. That it isn't prices going up, but the value of the dollar going down. Once I have their ear on that one, we can continue to other things and they seem to take it to heart and listen. I have turned allot of people. I am also starting my two dollar bill campaign.
I have even explained fractional reserve banking to the branch manager at the local bank I use. She was amazed that she didn't really understand it before and then I moved on to the fed and her expressions and comments were truly priceless. If we keep hacking at them one at a time, it grows exponentially.

I sure would like

to be able to do that. Congrats! Like they say one at a time.

Congratulations!

I am proud of you and feel good to know that you are out there doing what it takes to wake more people up. We need zillions more like you; keep duplicating yourself. Good work!

Right you are

Keep waking them up...and build....

That's a great feeling. Good job!

When things started to dawn on me, I was in the same kind of shock. In denial for awhile. But, keep pounding away, patiently, good naturedly, one at a time, and don't give up. Common sense seems to be kicking in en masse now, the word is spreading, and most will eventually get it. The seeds you are planting are growing. I guess it's survival of the smartest now.
We are the Paul Reveres of our time. There are many more who need enlightening. I'll run my mouth to anyone who'll listen, as often as possible, and as long as possible. I always warn people to not get me up on my soapbox. lol It's a delicate balance. I don't like to overwhelm people too quickly. Some will reject what you have to say, but I'm finding more and more, that most will listen. It's surprising sometimes, especially compared to two years ago. The internet is a very powerful tool for educating and spreading the word. :)
