I don't know how Michael thought of this but it is genious

he closed the door to freedom, because he knows we are all here, most that will flood in after this ark door is closed at this moment will be the one's trying to break our movement, he closed it at the perfect time. Don't get me wrong we will still have searchers coming here looking for truth, but they will just have our words to look at, no drama, no trolls, it is actually brilliant. Michael just played the poker move of all time, he shut the door on the neocons and I guess what they call liberals eventhough I hate that word. He boxed us in so we could run with the ball. I would prefer to rename this post Checkmate rather than the ark door is closed. Damn Michael, you are ontop of the game.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Put me down for Hippie

I'll claim that one

....er....I'm claiming Human...

ya..ya...it's generic, but fits.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

I don't post allot...

but I am happy to see the arc is closed. I am an avid reader of the Daily Paul. Why don't don't we put some red velvet rope into this club!

Im back!!

I'm not exactly sure what this means either. However I will say that it forced me to log in and make sure everything still worked for my account. I have not been logged in for some time.(over a year) even though I view the site daily, just have not logged in for some time. Not exactly sure why!! But now that the Ark is closed...... I'm back!!

Gil-Estel

From World's End then he turned away,
and yearned again to find afar
his home through shadows journeying,
and burning as an island star
on high above the mists he came,
a distant flame before the Sun,
a wonder ere the waking dawn
where grey the Norland waters run.

Free includes debt-free!

Glad I made it before the door closed....

Thank God!

After years of following, I finally registered 3 months ago! Woo hoo! And just cause I got island fever right now...

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise

I've long loved that lyric, completely changing the song from one story into another.

I think that there are angels here. I know I've been touched by a few. I have some very scary bad news to share at a different time; please pray for me.

"Come Sail Away"

I'm sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I've got to be free, free to face the life that's ahead of me
On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
Singing come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

"Tall and strong she slips along.......

.....I sing for her a song,
And she leans into the wind___

She's a good old boat and she'll stay afloat,
Through the toughest gales and keep smilin'

When the summer ends we will rest again,

...In the lee of NYSTROM's Island.."

Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
~ Joyce Meyer

Hatch is shut, WE are the "Remnant"

What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

all aboard!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reads

Like Michael is beating around the bush again
No more getting in,the ones who get out,aren't getting back in
Sooo,what happens when the last one here escapes?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

They turn off

the lights and lock the door.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

Indeed

there is life in your words.
what I read is this,the Michael from Ny is bored,His ship has sailed
all who are on board are welcome,but one by one will be deleted either through
their own boredom,lack of interest or the ban hammer,The DP is closing,it will not grow,it will be gone tomorrow,and it will be a fading memory for all concerned
It might be best to get your ducks in a row,get the e-mails of your friends) addresses,phone numbers ect ect (if not done so)
just saying

"You see the world not at it is, but as you are."

- I wish I knew who to attribute this quote to. It seems to be a mystery.

Deacon.

Yes, I was bored. I was bored with all the newbies coming in here and kicking dust around like they owned the place, then banning them, then chasing them around again after they signed back up for a free account. THAT is what was boring me.

This is not the hunger games, lol. We're going to take this team, and see what we can do with it.

But by all means, get your friends' emails, addresses, numbers, etc. And use them! The invisible, person-to-person back network of the DP is just as powerful, if not more powerful than this interface.

On the back network, you get to know people as people, not as screen names. You get to learn things they don't want to share in public.

Hopefully, with the door closed, we'll have a little bit of a different atmosphere here. And that is what I'm looking for. Something a little deeper.

deacon's picture

Thanks,my friend

Your words bring me encouragement
While I wasn't actually bored with new members,(never came across as many as you have),some were down right intolerable ( I came across things that weren't people)
You and the mods here have my utmost respect( I have been one before,but not with so many people)
As far as something deeper !!! oh yeah,that is what I live for,the things unseen,the things that make all other things work..This place,for me anyways,has always been deep,I have said before,bears repeating,this site has more info for truth,and it is a vast encyclopedia,ans a dictionary rolled into one
I have lost all interest in politics,yeah sure I might vote.But I know it is rigged.Not hard to figure out by seeing who invests in them.And it also bites the big one,when our bail out cash is used,so in affect,we pay for it all,while the ones on top pick the next puppets,and WE get the gold-ish shaft
It is good to know,which side of the door I made it on :)
I am more than a screen name,my acct says my name is Wayne,and I live in MICH,and I consider you and most here friends,family and neighbors
As far as your saying goes...I have looked upon the world as it is,And if more looked at it like I am,this world just might be a better place,I know,it would for me :)>you must think so too,as I am still here,and for a greater good
in closing,thank you and yours for letting me into your home for all these yrs
Wayne

It *could* depend where they escape... to!

Foreboding - Am I on board me lord?

Not quite sure how to interpret that message.

But I'm sure we'll all know - in time.

It means there is no more registration...

try it - log out, then click on a thread, then notice that it no longer says 'log in or register to comment'. It only says 'log in'.

Pandas can't drive.

Turns out Michael is really Marshall Applewhite reincarnated

And he's back with barbituates, alcohol and plastic bags for another chance at "the final exit" only this time we are to wear Addidas and not Nike
