Your Worst Nightmare Just Confirmed!

Okay conspiracy theorists, it is your big day. You are officially validated. But what you are about to read will neutralize the elation of your victory. May I present to you a massive part of the Grand Conspiracy:

Thousands Of Firms Trade Confidential Data With The US Government In Exchange For Classified Intelligence

The rabbit hole just got deeper. A whole lot deeper.

On Sunday we predicated that "there's one reason why the administration, James Clapper and the NSA should just keep their mouths shut as the PRISM-gate fallout escalates: with every incremental attempt to refute some previously unknown facet of the US Big Brother state, a new piece of previously unleaked information from the same intelligence organization now scrambling for damage control, emerges and exposes the brand new narrative as yet another lie, forcing even more lies, more retribution against sources, more journalist persecution and so on."

And like a hole that just gets deeper the more you dug and exposes ever more dirt, tonight's installment revealing one more facet of the conversion of a once great republic into a great fascist, "big brother" state, comes from Bloomberg which reports that "thousands of technology, finance and manufacturing companies are working closely with U.S. national security agencies, providing sensitive information and in return receiving benefits that include access to classified intelligence, four people familiar with the process said."

It's just a blend

of Leftist ideologies.

They have more in common than not.

It's deeper than that

Because conservatives are for the most part religous, beit Catholic, Jewish Orthodix, Muslim.. conservatives have a battle with the liberal state, as you see today with the pro-life issue for one.. where Communists do not tolerate religion for the most part, and why Budhism, which is a form of atheism, and spirituality is very popular among communists. It's a spiritual battle as well as a scientific/economic/social.

With all due respect

you haven't let go of the left/right paradigm.

Why should I?

The Indy's have no representation and get to vote for who the right/left paradigm put on the ballot.

After working with Nader for three elections where we won 22 laws suits is 17 states, and lost every suit. It seemed all we had done was make sure no indy was ever going to win... sure they can run (county/state LOVES the money(.. but you ain't going to win.

Why should you?

Stockholm Syndrome

How do you figure?

You a nazi?

Are you confused?

Or, did you respond on the wrong thread?

Look in your mirror

You don't stand a chance against me.




You're exhibiting Lima Syndrom symtoms.

Returning your mirror

lmao ..... You really are confused.


p.s. It is 'symptom' and 'syndrome'

No thanks

You can keep it nazi. You need it.


Still not sure about your infatuation with the 'nazi' word.

If the boot fits

wear it.

Then don't wear it

explain it

Try this on

I did relate

it to you, earlier.


you lost me when you claimed I must have stockholm syndrome

Not surprised



Where do you find evidence of Buddhism and/or spirituality to be
"very popular among communists"?

three strikes

your first has NOTHING to do with my question

your second is a mildly interesting exposé on conversion, but NOTHING to do with my question

your third is really quite interesting, could very well have been done as Judaism as a "Science of the Mind", and is far less than the other two tempting me to even flirt with the NOTion that it has ANYTHING to do with my question as it doesn't provide even a hint of communists in the mix

Are we playing baseball? :D


Could you make your question more clear?

I apologise to you, I don't understand what you are asking and I have much better things to do than waste my time attempting to answer questions from a gamer.

Believe what you want.

My apologies to you...

for erroneously giving the impression that I am a gamer.

I don't actually think I could make my question any more clear, but I'll try. :)

In the comment to which I initially refer, you lumped together Buddhism, atheism, and spirituality. I am completely unclear as to what you meant by "spirituality", but for the sake of brevity I shall henceforth drop it from the discourse.

You believe Buddhists to be atheists. I have no concern regarding what you may think of Buddhists or Buddhism, but in your claim you imply you know what Communists think of Buddhists. You tread thin ice there. For the most part Communists have regarded Buddhists to be conservative and religious. Communists have persecuted Buddhists with the same zeal they've applied to Christians. You sent me three links in attempt to show evidence of Buddhism being "very popular among communists". Yes, I also have other things to do, but I didn't waste in my time watching the videos you supplied. They were enlightening, thank you. However, I found no evidence in any of them to support your notion that Buddhism is very popular among communists. As you supplied me with multiple links I surmised that such a gesture is, to you, an acceptable act of communication in this forum. As such I replied in kind with a single [yes, time is precious] link revealing "Buddhist monks who demand religious freedom and their longtime foe: Communist Party leadership", "China's Communist Party has suppressed Buddhists, sometimes brutally", and "Mao's efforts to strip China of capitalism and religion while imposing socialism resulted in the destruction of hundreds of Buddhist temples and the deaths of thousands of monks."

I'll attempt to be even more clear. Your first link showed nothing of Buddhists. Your third link showed nothing of Communists. Your second link at least went to a potentially revealing corner of the world where Communists and Buddhists have struggled to co-exist, but alas, no mention of anything Buddhist was made beyond an erroneous, presumptive and ultimately deceiving title that the video's poster had applied. I am confident that my link shot to the heart of the matter.

Buddists [that weren't killed, imprisoned, or hiding in some way their Buddhism] fled Communist China. As Commusim entered Viet Nam, Buddhists again suffered persecution or fled. Perhaps you were previously unaware of such phenomena.

I've sympathized with your commentary for the most part here at the DP as I too have been a direct participant in Republican Party politics. I started out a Republican in 1980 [as I was 18]. I then moved into involvement with the Libertarian Party, campaigned and voted for Ron Paul in 1988. The 90s were a blur until Ralph Nader rocked my world and provided an outlet for my passion until RP's return to the national stage. I've remained largely Republican at the State and local levels of participation aside from my stint with the Independence Party as Jesse Ventura was involved [I live in Minnesota]. My sympathy stems from my empathty from having been in a position to sometimes defend my apparent support for Mitt Romney. I mention this because it is somewhat related to the general topic of this comment. Romney had a moment that garnered my respect and made it easier to defend him on the rare occassions that I found myself doing so. I saw him race out in disdain from an interview with Jan Mickelson. I had nothing but high regard for Jan Mickelson before that moment. At first Mickelson seemed to be vetting him regarding his ability to address people's fears about his Mormonism. Much to my satisfaction Romney eloquently replied to Mickelson's concerns. Michelson kept driving further in apparent attempt to transform the discussion into theology. Michelson almost seemed to lack the discipline to thwart his own temptation to discuss theology, as he had earlier claimed that he didn't intend to discuss Mormon theology. Michelson brutally prodded the topic... Romney fled, a free man!

With all this going on, Fox News is reporting on a deck that collapsed in Miami, injuring 2.

fox was the last of the mainstream media that I watched . . .

haven't looked at any of them again for 4 years now, or mainline talk radio. Its all propaganda and 'left' versus 'right' / 'Repub' versus 'Dem' baloney designed to keep people fighting each other and divided. They know all about Divide & Conquer.

Which nincompoop

One can understand that these business/govt relationships would differ depending on the politics of the players. A libertarian would resist strongly, whereas those cozy with big government not only wouldn't resist, but might go so far as to suggest "improvements" to the govt data collection schemes. The latter might indeed be rewarded by govt.
