BUSTED! Governments Hire Web Trolls to Sway Public Opinion
I knew it! I bet they do that racial horse sh*t too.
Congress is $17 Trillion in debt. Flat broke and busted.
Free includes debt-free!
And even more so - as much as all those Snowden shenanigans - it's not like nobody knew about this beforehand...
Only as high as i reach can i grow
Only as far as i seek can i go
Only as deep as i look can i see
Only as much as i dream can i be
We pay to have someone monitor us to change our mind?
its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
Defeat CORKER! Bailed out the banks. In training to steal more.
Defeat ALEXANDER! Career traitor! Handsomely rich in a poor Nation.
I was working at a place called Sheltered Industries which was for people who were physically, mentally, or in my case, legally challenged.
We got paid 'piecework' which came to about $2.50 per hour if you busted your butt. One of my coworkers was a cocky kid my age. He had Asperger's Syndrome - a more functional affliction on the higher-functioning end of the Autism spectrum. One day he was goofing around wasting time and distracting everyone so I said to him "why don't you just work instead of goofing off. The time will go by faster and you'll at least make a little money."
He said "I don't care about the money. After I graduate high school my dad's getting me a job as an internet cop."
He explained that his job was going to be to go onto 'usenet' groups and look for people talking bad about the government. He described his job as being what we would later come to call 'trolls'.
I didn't go onto the internet until 2001 but by then it was easy enough to find people with his job description hard at work.
Wow, I hate trolls.
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

'Troll' is only shorthand for an 'internet cop' on the DP. Elsewhere, it's typically someone who takes an unpopular position, whether they believe it or not, and attempts to cause as much forum drama as possible. While some gv't shills may use trolling as a tactic, that doesn't make all trolls shills. Or something.
It's just a dumb, annoying, and often unfunny/unoriginal way to piss people off on the internet for shits and giggles.
Then again, 'trolling' has become the online 'terr'ism'. Both labels started out as tactics, then moved on to being boogymen, then insults, and now in most contexts it's shorthand for "I disagree with this person's political views".
A signature used to be here!
He'd take a contrarian view on anything just for the sake of argument. He started out as a real-life troll then graduated to a paying position as one.
Seriously? No way. He is too annoying for that. Only a true believer in our movement could be that annoying :)
“With laws shall our land be built up, but with lawlessness laid waste.”
LOL. True, we all do it for free.
That's what must be really wrong with us! ;)
My name is pronounced like "see real". I code stuff for a living and for pleasure. I care quite a bit about language.
I think America should consider doing the same, and... ASAP!
that is hilarious! and SO true!
now that I have composed myself from your observation.
I will compile his contributions.
He HAS admitted it.
I think he was kidding, though.

Often I see the Constitution being held high, then the person goes right into his interpretation and spin.
By Reading the Foundation Documents that define the meaning of the words and "general phrases", as James Madison describes them, in the Constitution;
You will be able to recognize the moment the person veers from the original meaning and intent.
Here are 5 documents I regularly use, as they cover most of the basic foundations the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were derived from:

Israel is paying internet workers to manipulate online content
Someone else on DP posted a newscast caught with people in the background, on the internet, providing comments to the news story that just aired - anybody have that or the link?
I'm sure you understand the difference, and I'm only pointing it out here because of the opportunity to do so.
I honestly believe most people just want to be left alone to raise their families, enjoy their friends, and support their communities to do so.
It has to be a psychologically destructive job to be a troll. Regardless of who is paying you.
This is the psychological war being waged on all people that respect individual freedom.
"... it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the peoples relations with government so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the INOCULATION OF DISEASES, by want, so that the goyim see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else."
I thought the government just bought Huffington Post and the rest of the MSM. What do they need trolls for?
And they are losing the war to get people to kill each other. ;)
are now an entire forest of mighty oaks, that all the D.C. wind in the world cannot sway an inch.
Dropping their acorns by the millions.
That is so apt and cute. It makes me laugh.
Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

I did a search for "corn" and "health" the other day and was shocked at how there was nothing but results saying how nutritious corn is on the first page of results. Somebody was working hard to maintain corn's good name.

"Business as usual" for governments these days... especially those of the collectivist kind, like, you know... Amerika.
(very consistent with the fact they are made up of unproductive leeches, thieves, thugs, bullies, and other frauds and liars, anyway...)
For instance, some of us will remember this :
Whenever I suspect a government troll, I call them a Sunstein apparatchik.
I'm pretty sure I read recently about the establishment scum changing the law such that it is now legal for the U.S. government to be able to use propaganda against the people of the U.S.
