LD (*shortening*) . . . :)

I've appreciated your comments before, and I like your perspective.

However (don't you love it when people come up with "however")--

*your* country isn't puny. Don't you know how much 'havoc' the Dutch wrecked in South Africa! (and some good, too; nobody is all bad; I agree with you)--

The Dutch were involved in the American pre-revolution; they were the ones who had the banks back then and a lot of gold.

Anyway, I'm getting off on a tangent. I do understand that a lot of conspiracy theorists are too 'black and white'--

And I am being misunderstood if anyone thinks that I believe this is all the "U.S. government". No, I believe the CIA is now a 'rogue' organization with all sorts of ties to corporations, etc. Sort of a government-initiated intelligence mafia. I am sure there are good people in the CIA, even now--
but like so many organizations/people, it became full of itself--

Yes, I believe we all have good and evil in us, but there are psychopathic personalities, and often they can accomplish evil that others can't or won't accomplish.

But, this is the sort of thing I am talking about. Anyone can argue with this, too, but--

I happen to believe that this is just one man; I have met a few people who have had some strange backgrounds, things they won't talk about--and so . . .


As much as it's easier to believe that there is no secrecy in the world . . .--

there has been plenty of it in the past; why not now? Think of the atrocities committed on the descendants of the Aztecs and Mayans in the "new world" by 'adventurers'. Those things can't be denied--

I believe it just happens in a different way now--

And, yes, I believe other countries are really no better than the U.S. The difference is that the U.S. HAD become big and wealthy and had the power to do more hurt. While hurting others, I believe that there have been many Americans who have gone about doing good in other countries, sometimes, even.

But, then, I DO believe in Dr. Paul's theory about blowback.

Explains a lot of things--

Oh, and I believe the corporatists, globalists, bankers, etc.--who have encouraged the sort of thing that Perkins did . . .--

would not have allowed him to 'confess' if they didn't think they already had the noose around our collective 'neck'--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
