Anywhere else, Daily Paul headlines would make people's eyeballs explodeSubmitted by George Strait on Thu, 05/30/2013 - 21:01
These headlines should be enough for people to totally stop listening to any member of any branch of government, anywhere. I feel like if these headlines were scrolling across CNN or MSNBC, Joe Sixpack and friends would literally turn inside out.
I mean, what about this?
How many mainstream concepts does that just totally demolish? First, that the CIA has average Americans interests in mind, that the rebels in Syria are the good guys, that only Assad is using poison gas, etc.
How about this one? This is totally crazy.
The free sample lady "brandishing" scissors gets iced by the cops? What country do we live in again?
Is biometric ID just a conspiracy theory bandied about by loonies? No way!
They're not theories if they're actually happening right now.
How about some more police state action?
I mean, this stuff is TOTALLY outrageous. Anyone who looks at that, nods, and clicks over to the next article has been reading this stuff for too long. This news is not OK! It's not ordinary! There is something seriously wrong with our government.
I've been reading DP for about eight months or so, but like anything else you build up a tolerance to INSANE news. It's when you take a step back and think "Holy crap, this is really all happening right now to real people in MY country." that you realize just how important this site is to maintaining some sense of what's really happening. Yeah, there's a lot of garbage on here, but there is the occasional nugget of solid gold.
It's amazing what the 200-300 or so regular posters on here can accomplish in combing the world for the real stories while MSMNBC churns out the gay marriage/celebrity opinion diversions.
Keep up the good work, folks.
