This election is about as important as the Super Bowl.

I mean - does your life really change if the NFC as opposed to the AFC team wins the Super Bowl?

People spend a lot of money on it. And huge audiences watch it. Its hyped like the most important thing in the world. Everybody arbitrarily picks a side to support and sticks with it. But the next day, no matter who won - your life is pretty much the same.

I'm talking about both the Super Bowl and the election.

We will still have huge deficits.
We will still be conducting illegal wars.
We will still be able to detain American citizens indefinitely and for no reason.
We will still be doing drone strikes.

Do you know what the winning team really gets for winning the Super Bowl? That team gets to keep the Lombardi Trophy for a year in its trophy case. That's it. Nothing really changes in the world.

And do you know what is determined by this election? It detemines which family gets to live at the White House for four years. That's it. Nothing really changes in the world.

The Super Bowl is 100% created entertainment, designed just for the excitement of the thing. It means nothing.

So is this War Party Presidential Election.

Truly there is almost nothing left that I don't view as just a

distraction put on the boob tube to keep the people entertained while we are all being plundered and our country destroyed by tyrants.

I've not watched but maybe 1/4 of a game this year. We sometimes leave the TV on with the volume down and my wife reads while I'm typically online trying to locate the back of the internet.

The road is long, with many a winding turn, that leads us to, who knows where? So, on we go.


As Stalin said:

"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

And its no more important than the Super Bowl.

True but you'll still have the chance to vote your conscience

in California!
It's supposed to be announced tomorrow that RON PAUL has 55 ELECTORS in CALIFORNIA and should be on the OFFICIAL CERTIFIED LIST OF WRITE-IN CANDIDATES but the post that ANNOUNCED this most IMPORTANT INFORMATION is NOT on the FRONT PAGE or even in the STICKY BOX!!! And to ADD INSULT TO INJURY - the link isn't even referencing the TITLE of the post which is

and instead it's called


'hello my little friends'???

What kind of obfuscation is that? I would expect this of the lamestreammedia, but NOT the DP. All the other thread links use the subject of the thread in the link EXCEPT this one as far as I have checked.
Is the DP DELIBERATELY TRYING to eliminate all possibility of having Ron Paul getting more votes because of its new found love for gj? Makes me wonder.
Please go to the link and bump and plus it a top post so those Californians who may wander to this page will see it.
Shame on the DP mods for BLACKING-OUT this most important information from the masses.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Well done

But of course you WILL be chastised for even considering the concept that your grandchildren are more important than todays game and sports. Pretty sad.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

My main problem is I don't find that clown funny.

Fear of clowns is one of the most common phobias.

In this case, with very good reason.

So true.

So true.


I will wear me pads and helmet to zee polls !

The Super Bowl is 100% created entertainment

So is the election. Great post.

Football is just "civil" war anyway

Your analogy could not be better. My husband grew up in a tiny county with 3 towns, each less than 2,000 people. It was a very isolated corner of Oregon, those people were all they had when winter hit. And yet.... They bussed the kids around so they could get together and.... make war on and off the football field. You had to HATE the other town, they were the competition! If you weren't on the team, there would likely be a fight in the stands at some point when some kid dared to walk over to the other bleachers...
Even music was set up to be a competition between the kids. War programming starts early in this country, and pervades everything.
By the way, I have no clue who won the last Super Bowl, nor who is in the running for the next one. I am pretty sure it is football season... Must be time for another war then, too...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
